THE DREAM : I went to my girlfriends workplace and saw her on her break. She was burdened about her workload at church and was not too happy. I gave her my phone to keep. When I arrived at work I searched for my phone not knowing I gave it to her. Then my friend asks me what I am looking for and I tell him "Its with my girlfriend""

THE REALITY The dreamer was chatting with his girlfreind the night before ironing out some issues. He was worried and stressed out about this as he feared her would lose her.

THE INTERPRETATION Phones are very much symbols of communication. Often a dream will link to something very much in the dreamers mind. Issues that we cannot walk away from. His problems with his girlfriend were stressing him out.

Obviously this dream does link to reality as its featuring his girlfriend at a particularly crucial moment. But what does it mean? It does show him giving his phone to her. Thats a symbol of him trying to communicate and understand her.

Dreams can pick on something quite crucial. Maybe the appearance of the friend linked to something that actually happened in reality. The dreamers obvious stress was maybe noticed by a friend or workmate. So the dream was partly about that. Either way most dreams like this will be saying more about how we have just acted and if it was correct.

Look to ways in which the dream may capture your actual reactions. Here the dreamer gives his phone to his grielfriend. Maybe that shows how much he is trying. It could quite easily show that he is trying as much as he can and that its up to her.

Dream Symbol
BURDENED : "The dreamer is sensing the emotional burden building up within his girlfriend."
PHONE : "A symbol of communication."
PHONE LOST: "There is still a problem in communication between the two"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - " I have been worried about losing my girlfriend. I am making a special effort to understand what she is thinking and feeling. Its still not quite right. "

THE DREAM : I am at some sort of race track. There are formula one cars there. I have a formula one phone with me.

THE REALITY The dreamer Had just got his first ever mobile phone the day before.

THE INTERPRETATION Dreams can link to new events. In real life phones did feature significantly the day before. The dreamer had just got his first ever mobile phone. So its safe to assume that this dream links in a way to how he felt about this. Dreams often link to the previous day as its our first chance to think over these events.

The formula one car is an obvious symbol of status and fast moving and fast living people. The dreamer felt more of a high flyer because of this. He was aware that this was a little corny but it did slightly change his perceptions about himself.
