THE DREAM - My mum asked me to make her a hot drink (coffee?) so I pulled a mug out of the draw. It looked pretty old and battered, it wasn’t a good cup as it use to be. I thought perhaps the glass might brake because it couldn’t handle the hot water.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been told by a Internet friend that he was prone to tiredness and was actually exhausted so could not immediately answer his questions on a subject they both shared an interest in. The friend had had a lot of work to do that week.

DREAM INTERPRETATION Coffee is a stimulant and is often associated with concentration and hard work. So that battered coffee mug was associated with tiredness and mental exhaustion.

Water often symbolises energy and flows of energy and motivation. Hot water is associated with fast flows of energy and extreme effort.

The dream represented how the dreamer was comprehending how his web friend felt. It is difficult to understand people we know only on the Internet so this was probably the first time he realised that his web friend was not super human and able to cope with questions immediately.

Dream Symbols
BRAKE : "the dreamer realises that his friend has to slow down and take a brake "
MUM : "a concern for someones well being "

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I was thinking about my friend and how he helps me out. He told me he could not help me yesterday because he was a little exhausted. I think I understand."

THE DREAM - I think the place was my grandparents former house, and I think there were some of my relatives there ( I haven’t seen my father, grandparents and cousins for a long time now ). Anyway, there were other people there.

I was sitting ( on a stone or maybe another pile of clay ) at a distance in front of the house and discovered a pile of clay. I took some and started to play with it, just feeling the good sensation it brings. There was an animal resting on a rock by my side, it looked like a cross between a dog and a ferret. Its fur was brownish gray and looked kind of fluffy but I didn’t touch it. I found a piece of dog food in the clay and threw it away.

While I played with that dark clay ( I felt it needed just a little bit more water to be perfect for creating something ) one of my college’s friends came and said she hated creating clay things(In real life she is very afraid of relationships and when we’re talking anything about guys she gets up and walks away. ). I started to involve my hands with the clay like I was making a clay glove. It suddenly became night, and I saw a light spiral at the sky going downward. "Wow, fireworks, let’s see it" - someone said. I had already went ahead and was watching the fireworks. They went straight to the sky, cracked and went downwards forming spirals. It was beautiful - but there was a hint of disappointment.

THE REALITY The dreamer was reading a chapter of a book which was about the subject of speeches at marriages. She expected a very corny text which dealt with superficial phrases such as "two souls that love each other". The speeches were good though and captured the mind of the dreamer. She then dealt with the subject of her own reasons for wanting marriage. The book was therefore a vehicle for some thinking.

DREAM INTERPRETATION The dreamer recognised the connection between the book and the dream. She had a book right after being inspired by the book so the dream represented the thoughts processes set off by her mind. It was then just a matter of decoding what each symbol meant.

In particular the book represented a new way of thinking which was a departure from the usual speeches she expected. The ferret is a strong symbol here. It is a creature which digs deep and ferociously hunts. Therefore it represents in the dream the deep meaning of the speeches within the book. In that way the dog food maybe represents the faithful old ideas that she was expecting.

Clay is a strong symbol here. It is extremely malleable and can be shaped to whatever you wish. So in this way it maybe represents how the dreamer had taken the ideas and enthusiastically molded them to her own purpose. She had thought through the subject of marriage and why she would want to get married.

The dreamer stated that fireworks often represented relationships in her dreams. Her previous relationship had ended badly 18 months previously. So maybe the dream represented the fireworks represented her previous relationship and the disappointment connected with it.

The dreamers friend from college maybe symbolises the way that she has avoided the subject within her mind of relationships. This dream represents maybe a change in that. She faced the subject of marriage and relationships thanks to the inspiration from this book.

The dreamer notes that she needs "just a little more water". Water in dreams can symbolise the use of the unconscious mind. Therefore it is connected with emotional issues, creative issues and any issue involving higher thinking. So perhaps more water symbolises a little bit of emotional resolve, or creative thinking in connection with the ideas from the book. The ideas engaged her in issues that she was trying to stay clear from. This dream represented a softening of her mind. The issue of relationships was now being openly faced by both her waking and dreaming mind.

Dream Symbols
CLAY : "using your imagination to mold and shape the ideas she read in the book "
DOG : "following the pack and being quite predictable"
FERRET : "searching out a deeper meaning in something"
FIREWORKS : "thinking about passionate things that could happen in the future - the dreamers idea of romance"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I started to read a book before going to sleep on the subject of wedding speeches. At first I thought it was rather predictable. But then later it got me thinking quite a lot. I started to think about my own life and how I would like my own wedding to be."

THE DREAM - I am at the beach. I am angry because there is a traffic jam. I am talking with this man and complaining that its all the fault of the government and then I point to this aqueduct type thing. The water is been lifted up and down in this aqueduct type thing.

THE REALITY The dreamer had a long day caught up in bureaucracy and form filling. He was wasting time and energy in a somewhat annoying task.

DREAM INTERPRETATION Water often links to emotional connections we have with people and the world in general. It symbolises the energy and motivation we bring to life.

This aqueduct type construction - pipes went up into the air and then twisted around was the most bizarre of constructions. Often water that appears in very unusual forms symbolises unnatural forms of energy. Having to devote time to something which is not particularly rewarding. So this dream perfectly sums up the frustration of that day caught up with bureaucracy.

Cars in dreams refer to day to day reality and how you are managing to achieve the things on a day to day basis. Cars often refer to real life timespans - such as at 9:30 am you had a meeting but a person who was supposed to attend did not. In that way a traffic jam perfectly sums up the frustration and annoyance of wasted time.

Dream Symbols
ANGRY : "suppressed rage due to delays the day before"
JAM : "obstructions"
MAN : "difficult circumstances - the dreamer had to face difficult delays on the day before the dream"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I had quite a frustrating day the day before the dream. I was stuck in queues and filling in forms. It was a waste of energy"

THE DREAM - I’m in one of my kids room with the door open and I’m naked in bed. My coworker is sucking on my left breast and it feels VERY GOOD. Only it feels like we’re at work and I say to him we should stop because this doesn’t seem like work. We decide to go in the bathroom. He goes in first but when I follow him into the bathtub and go to kiss him he’s turned to water and gone up the hose of the shower massage.

THE REALITY The dreamer had several dreams about this coworker and they usually happened when she had let down her emotional guard against him.. She was attracted to him - but she also knew enough about him to know that he was not someone to be involved with.

DREAM INTERPRETATION Often water in dreams refers to emotional energies and with people they refer to emotional connections. In this dream the water maybe refers to sexual attraction. The dreamer also stated that she did not want to let down her guard - she maybe was attracted to him but she had other considerations(possibly why she was sitting on her childs bed).

The shower is a very refreshing symbol. It shows attraction. She felt him in the water. The shower massage shows that she felt his ability to affect her. She wanted to resist this. Massages often are symbols of people trying to influence you by getting you to drop your guard.

Dream Symbols
BATHTUB : "relaxing in some feeling - feeling pleasure for this man"
BED : "the dreamers personal situation - she would only have a relationship if the man respected her children"
SHOWER : "letting down your emotional guard - the dreamer realises she fancies this man"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I do fancy a guy at work but I know what he is like. He is not really an option for me. But I do fancy him and sometimes he can tell when I let my emotional guard down."
