Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

SWAMP :Dreams are metaphors for your emotions so its important to examine that symbol in depth in order to see what it could represent. Swamps and marshes are difficult places to move in. You get 'bogged down' - that in itself is a phrase which we use to describe our emotions and life in general. Our dream studies show that marshes and swamps seem to occur when you have been stuck in a routine. They can link to depressive feelings. The swamp dream maybe a recognition of this lack of motivation and energy and can jolt you into breaking out of your routine.

Another swamp dream happpened when the dreamer was thinkinng about their new neighbours. They were unwilling to accept them because of their religion. So the swamp represented the lack of progress they were making as they were stuck with people who would not accept them.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Do you feel stuck and unmotivated in life?
- Are you unable to make any progress in some task at the moment?
KEY WORDS : Stuck, lacking motivation, lack of progress

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "lacking motivation"
-"we are just stuck"
- "unable to achieve any progress"

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 swamps in dreams?

"I feel trapped and in need of change. I am in too much of a routine"[Dream symbol - lots of people in a marsh][the quote on which this dream is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I have just moved with my husband. But people are not willing to accept us because of our religion. We have tried but whatever we do we are unable to change things"[Dream Dictionary - swamp]

EXAMPLE DREAM - I am then in some swamp area. There is a slug moving around me. A bee comes near me but I avoid it. I am in some long room. It appears to have lots of people. There is my Terry Marsh there. He is dressed in some very odd clothes. He has a jumper on and a weird hat. I am then in some car in the back seat. There are some TVs there. There are three of them(reminds me of Elvis).

THE REALITY The dreamer had been sat at home for too long. He had been watching TV and just not doing anything and felt depressed.

DREAM ANALYSIS Numerous symbols linked to the previous day when the dreamer did not get out of the house much. He was getting jaded by his lack of exercise and needed some fresh air. The TV's reminded the dreamer of Elvis Presley who had several TV's and yet despite all his luxury died an unhappy unfit man. The slug is a symbol connected with slow moving events or a lack of resolve or initiative.

The Bee symbolises hard work and keeping busy - "the busy Bee". In this case the dreamer avoided the Bee so that signified how he had avoided exercise.

Water symbolises your emotional resolve or involvement in the world. The clearer and fresher the water the better. But in this case this is stagnant and swamped water signifying lack of clear resolve. Perhaps this shows how the dreamers tiredness and listlessness was affecting him in other ways - he felt less creative and imaginative.

The man in the dream is probably a synonym - with the marsh symbolising the muddy and unclear thinking in his mind. The dreamer was also getting grouchy and bad tempered. The weird clothes possibly symbolise the strange mood he was in. Clothes symbolise how other people see us and several people had noticed some signs of odd behavior.

The car is a symbol of your day to day progress towards your goals. In this case the dreamer was in the back seat which is not a good sign and shows lack of clear control. This signified how the lack of exercise was clearly affecting the dreamer in every aspect of his life.

The dream was just a wake up call to do better. The dreamer recognised the need to exercise and freshen up his mind.
