DREAM STUDIES

Dream interpretation - noises,pains and other external causes of dreams

EXTERNAL FACTORS : During dreams we can still hear and sense things happening around us. Such external factors can be incorporated into dreams. Often the effect of these factors will be exaggerated in dreams in often bizarre ways. If you have a TV or radio on at the time then that maybe incorporated into the dream in odd ways.

The need to go to the toilet is a classic cause of external dreams. Also if you wake up in an awkward position and it is causing you pain then that will result in an external dream.

DREAM SYMBOL STUDIES : Real dreams that feature external noise interference and other factors
---------------------
THE DREAM - I woke up and heard this voice saying "He doesn't even turn up for his own show".

THE REALITY The dreamer woke up and realized that his radio was on full blast. It was 2 O'clock in the morning.

DREAM INTERPRETATION The dreamer had been disturbed in this dream by loud music. He woke up and laughed at the dream. It made immediate sense to him. The show represented the loud music that his radio was playing. The dream even seemed to have a sense of humour.

Dream Symbols
NOT TURN UP : "The dreamer was not there because he was asleep"
SHOW : "The dreamer was embarassed because he was playing loud music in the middle of the night"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I woke up and immediately knew the meaning of the dream. I was playing loud music and was not even there in a sense because I was asleep. I guess I have a sense of humour in my dreams. "

THE DREAM - I have a simple dream . A voice states to me - "you need to stop doing This." I start to think and the voice repeats - "NO - You need to stop doing this"

THE REALITY The dreamer woke up and it took him a couple of seconds to realise that he was in intense pain with his foot. It was in a very uncomfortable sleeping position.

DREAM INTERPRETATION This dream was very much in the real world. The voice represents a message from the dreamers subconscious. The dreamer woke up wondering what the dream meant. But then had to move immediately because the pain with his foot was unbearable. The dreamer liked to study his dreams and this was one such dream. It was quite a humorous dream and was quite insistent in its message. It was like it was in conversation - it was correcting the dreamer who immediately looked to deep meaning. The dreamer was trying to stay still to remember his dream yet was forced to move.

Dream Symbols
YOU NEED TO STOP DOING THIS : "the dreamer needed to stop sitting in that position because he was in pain that very second"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I woke up and started to try to understand my dream. Then I realised that I had an intense pain in my foot(cramp). I then instantly understood the dream. I really did have to stop doing this and move to relieve the pain."

THE DREAM I was taking giants steps on the moon in an astronaut suit.

THE REALITY When the dreamer woke up from the dream the Police song "Walking on the Moon" was playing on the radio.

DREAM INTERPRETATION Often our dreams are shaped by external sources. This is one obvious case. We can hear perfectly well in dreams and such sources will shape our dreams. Such dreams are often difficult to interpret. What parts are part of dream world and what parts are simple noise interference.

THE DREAM I was walking down Osgodby Crescent(near my childhood home). A song had somehow been chosen to play. It was Champagne Supernova by Oasis. The view down to Osgodby Grove was not how it should be. Instead of a street full of bungalows it was a wonderful beach scene. This was strange because I had just seen the view from Osgodby top. There was a beautiful sunrise there. So there were sunrises wherever I looked.

Then I was in my mothers bed? I was here because she was in my bed? It was not making much sense. I woke up and Champagne Supernova by Oasis was playing on the radio.

THE REALITY The dreamer had woken up and turned the radio on. Later he fell back asleep. The song in the dream was one of the dreamers favorites and was actually playing in real life when he woke up. The song in question features the opening line "where were you when we were getting high". It is a song associated with drugs.

DREAM INTERPRETATION The song in the dream was playing in real life when the dreamer awoke. It took place during the dream. The dream itself seems to fit in with the mood of the song. It was a somewhat pyschedelic dream with sunsets and sunrises everywhere.

The scene with the beds was strange as well. It was somewhat surreal. But it somewhat followed reality. The radio show the dreamer was listening too featured a web camera in one of the radio presenters bedrooms. This was one of the features the dreamer heard before he went back to sleep. The way that the radio presenter was sleeping reminded the dreamer of the way that he was sleeping.

The song probably has no meaning. The dreamers mind was probably just tuning into the sounds her heard around him. When we have worked through our essential emotional problems then the dream mind may simply try to entertain itself.

THE DREAM I had a dream that penguin from batman was climbing from the side of my bed, he was biting me. I woke up and it was the cat latching onto me to get onto the bed.

THE REALITY The dreamer was feeling pain at the same time in real life as she was in the dream. It was at the exact same moment.

DREAM INTERPRETATION Often dreams about feelings that we are having at the exact moment of the dream will include very odd symbols. In this case the Penguin is a type of joke figure. So the cat is compared to the figure of evil because he causes the dreamer pain by scratching her. But its also a half comical moment. But the crucial link here is that the pain is felt simultaneously.
------------------------------------
DREAM INTERPRETATION TIP : The dream mind is a conceptual mind. Therefor try to think about the kinds of conceptual thoughts and emotions currently occupying your mind. Try to write down some quotes which capture your feelings on major issues concerning you and especially events from the day before the dream . For instance think of quotes like "I have been unhappy at work recently", or "I had a really strange conversation with my best friend yesterday and do not know what to make of it". Its quotes like this which interest our dream minds. Try to link your dreams to conceptual thoughts currently rising to the surface of your mind.
