It works on the assumption that if something very big and important happens the day before then you will surely dream about it. This dictionary collects together such dreams and has meticulously studied their meanings. Try to study the definitions and questions below and see how they relate to real life right now.

They lack of ability to master simple tasks could reflect your own sense of inadequacy or ineffectiveness. The drunk may just link to some sense that things are out of control.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Do you often worry that others see you as a loser?
- Did someone simply not know what they were doing yesterday?
- Do you feel that you may become very emotional and lose control in some way tommorrow?

KEY WORDS : Loser, out of control,useless, incapable

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of drunks in dreams?

Drunks are associated with lots of things. They are totally incapable of performing simple tasks and have a poor image in the eyes of others. They are totally out of control.

Drunks may suggest we are judging someone. We may see them as losers or ineffective. E.g.

"I was tired and exhausted and didn't want my child seeing me that way - it made me feel like a LOSER"[Dream Dictionary - drunken bum dream]

"I guess I must be a real burden to everyone BUMBLING around the office" [Dream symbol - alcoholic dream]

"I often feel like I am not doing enough with my life. I tend to be associated with a group of people that many see as losers. I want to do more but its difficult in this town" [Dream Dictionary - worthless bum on a boat]

Drunks can also symbolise how something has got out of control.

"I wanted to help them out by offering to cover a few shifts but this has got TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL" [Dream Dictionary - drunken bum dream]

"I know I have got to talk out this problem. But I just worry that if I start talking about it I will become very emotional and lose control" [Dream Dictionary - getting steadily more drunk at a party]

"That regional inspector was totally out of control. I let her alone for a moment and she was checking up on all sorts of things. If I had stayed with her I could have tried to cover up the faults with the shop." [Dream symbol - intoxicated dream]

Drunks in dreams can easily link to the simple abuse of alcohol. E.g.

"I went to a funeral yesterday and it was full of many people who do not follow the ways of the Lord. They drink and take drugs. I just fear that they will be swept away by their own sinfulness." [Dream Dictionary - drunkenness][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

In the dream, I am in this hotel room, watching the news, and there is a story on about a disastrous tidal wave that swept through Africa. In the dream I think wow that's horrible, and go to the window of my room, and I can see a wall of water far into the distance, so I grab my son, and my shoes, and run to tell everyone we have to leave now. Everyone is busy getting drunk, and getting high, and they don't listen, including my mother, I begged and pleaded and cried, pointing out that they would die if they didn't come with me, but no one cared, they all just laughed and acted as though I was overreacting. So I put on my shoes, picked up my little boy, and started down the stair of the hotel. When my foot hit the last step, I was suddenly outside, running for the hills, and reaching the hillside, start scrambling up pulling my son with me, (Think Elijah Wood and LeiLei Sobieski in Deep Impact), and I get to the top with my son and look back. I can see my family, sitting there in plastic lawn chairs drinking, watching as though it can't bother them when the wave crashes over them and heads my way. The wave stops at the peak of the hillside, and my son and I only got our toes wet. Then I woke up.

THE REALITY The day before the dreamer had been to a wake. Her uncle had died in jail. The dreamer had been reflecting on her family. Although she loved her Uncle her was a drug dealer and gun dealer. Of all the people at the wake the dreamer was virtually the only one(barring those of school age) who had not been in jail. Many had alcohol and drug issues. The dreamer had been thinking about the need for salvation and the need to live a good and honest life.

DREAM ANALYSIS Many dreams relate to the day before and views being formed then. Obviously this dream could relate to her feelings at the wake of her uncle. These were of a very religious nature and showed that she very much feeling the need for her family to reform and sweep away the evil path that they were living. Its noticable that the dreamer and her son are left untouched by this flood. That symbolises her belief that they good will be saved and the evil will be punished. Those who live a life of sin will be swept away. But she does get her toes wet so in some ways she is aware that she is not without sin. She had taken drugs and only escaped jail because she was not caught. But the difference is that she takes salvation seriously.

The dream takes place in Africa. This dreamer was African american so Africa is a symbol of her heritage and her family roots.

In the dream she is ignored and ridiculed. That surely mimics real life where she feels her message is not taken seriously.

Symbolic Meanings
AFRICA : "The dreamers african american roots - her family as a whole that is traced back to africa"
LAUGHING : "A belief that her religious views are not taken seriously"
SON : "her belief in the children and the innocent"
TIDAL WAVE : "all those who do not seek salvation will be swept away"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I had to attend a funeral yesterday. But I realised that virtually all of the congregation had been in prison or done drugs. They have got to realise the importance of religion and save themselves. Otherwise they will be swept away. I know I am not without sin but I have sought the forgiveness of the Lord".
