Online Database of Past Dream Interpretations: Dreams About the Body

Here's my dream...

I am a 15-year-old heterosexual male. I have had a recurring dream were I am rushed to a hospital and they remove all of my male organs and put in a uterus and ovaries. When I wake up my hair is long like a girl's and my body has taken on a feminine shape with hips, female buttocks, a small waist and large breasts. My face has also changed to look like a beautiful 15-year-old girl. I have makeup on and I'm in a dress holding on to what seems to be my boyfriend's hand. I'm kind of freaked out about this dream because I never have wanted to be a girl and I don't like guys. I like girls. Please, I would like some answers.
Dear Dreamer, The dream has several possible meanings. One, of course, has to do with asking questions about your own sexuality but there are many other likely interpretations. One interpretation suggests that you may have been spending so much time thinking about the female anatomy that you have diminished women in general into no more than objects of sexual desire. If this is the case, your subconscious mind has simply tried to give you an experience "being" a girl so you could feel what it is like and realize that girls are people too. Another possibility is that you may be so "male" that you are somewhat out of balance and need to incorporate more feminine qualities (such as compassion, empathy, etc.) into your life. Although the dream could also be related to a past-life memory, I think it has more to do with one of the previous interpretations.
Here's my dream...

I recently had a health scare that turned out all right. (I didn't go to a doctor - happily the problem seems to have resolved on its own.) I had these dreams the night the symptoms stopped: I'm at a circus and watch as a clown does a juggling act with small puppies! I'm impressed at his skill but still shocked that he would take the risk, especially as the puppies are obviously terrified. Next, several clowns lock arms and legs and become a kind of "walking spider." Again, I'm impressed with their skill but baffled as to why they would choose to imitate a scary spider instead of something fun and cheerful, even though I did laugh several times at their antics. Lastly, I'm with an acquaintance who says to me, "I know you think I lived in some kind of big, fancy house, but you're wrong." (I assume she's referring to a childhood home.) I tell her that I'd actually always imagined it as a cute little house flanked by two tall buildings, like skyscrapers, on each side. This is also clearly wrong, judging by her face. She picks up the phone to call her mother (so that she'll describe the house for me, I think) but I wake up at this point. Thanks for any insight you can give me.

Dear Dreamer, If this was my dream, I would go to see a doctor regardless of feelings that the scare had passed. The first part may be questioning why you might be "taking a risk." The second might be wondering why you simply dealt with the "scare" by laughter. The third may be suggesting that you may not be as strong and invincible as you have imagined. Although the dream could also be about making decisions related to your life's direction, to be on the safe side I would suggest a follow-up with a doctor just for a checkup. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream..

My 32-year-old daughter has recurring and persistent cancer. I dreamed this before her last CAT scan. I felt it was a very important dream because it showed the past present and future. But as time is passing, it doesn't seem that I have interpreted it correctly. Please help. I feel that this is a dream that shows God's will, but I can't understand it. The dream has 3 parts: First, I am at my daughter's house getting ready for a party. I have brought gifts to be wrapped. My daughter says, "Here Mom, let me wrap them" and she does. My friend is there and I ask, "Are we going to the party?" She says, "Not at 1 o'clock, but at 4 o' clock." The second part: We do go to a party at a beautiful house in a wooded area. The large doors open. My daughter puts the wrapped gifts on an entry-type round table in front of a flaming fire in the fireplace. Third part: I want to go outside the house and see the grounds. On the side of the house is a walkway constructed of large, white bricks. It is a long sturdy and wide walkway. On the first section there have been planted a row of tall slender trees on the left side. Then the walkway stops abruptly because there is a large dead tree in the way. As I go past the dead tree, I see that there is also another kind of dead tree attached to the first one. But I get back on the walkway and look back over my left shoulder at the dead trees. Up ahead is another section of the walkway that has the identical tall slender trees planted in a row on the right. On ahead is another section of walkway with the same kind of trees planted on both sides, but they are growing tall and arching over the walkway. Finally the walkway continues into a beautiful shady forest. Is this a good hopeful dream of life or foreboding? I had a good feeling when I awakened.

 

Dear Dreamer, To be honest, the dream can be interpreted a number of ways. The first part regarding the time of the party suggests that the time of "celebration" is going to occur later than you originally thought. It is possible that this healing process might be longer in duration. The second part, related to your daughter giving a gift, suggests that your daughter has a very important role to play in terms of "releasing something," "giving something away," or perhaps even "expressing her own thanks." One interpretation might be that there is there something your daughter needs to "turn loose of" for her own health and well-being. Because of the presence of the hearth, that might be connected to something related to home and family. Another approach might be to ask your daughter, "What is one good thing about yourself or your life that this process has brought to your attention that you could share with others?" The last part might suggest two surgeries or that the cancer that was removed still had another root. However, up ahead is a lot of very positive growth and greenery. The end result appears positive. I hope this helps. God bless you both at this time.

Here's my dream...

For the past year and several months I've had a recurring dream at least 10 times pertaining to my menstrual cycle and bowel movements. These dreams have always been embarrassing. Either my period has came down unexpected while I'm sitting on the toilet and/or I am catching a bowel movement in my hand and trying to hide it from people around me. I have been thinking of what possible meaning this could be.

 

Dear Dreamer, Overall, the dream might be about feeling exposed or vulnerable in front of other people. In addition to that, however, it suggests the process of elimination — especially eliminating something toxic from your life. There are a number of reasons why this might occur. For example, perhaps you are having to expose something personal about yourself as a means of moving beyond a toxic situation. A dream like this could also occur, for example, if someone was in a relationship that they were not happy about, or actually "toxic" for them, possibly that he or she needed to leave but rather than leaving the individual was constantly complaining about the other person to others. In other words, airing their dirty laundry. Perhaps it is about exposing something private in front of others.

Here's my dream...

I am a three-month breast cancer survivor. I had some unusual dreams prior to my diagnosis, and my doctor said always listen to your dreams; they could be a warning. The other night I dreamed an intruder came in my house and shot me with a long barrel gun. I felt the shots go into my body and I lie down to die. The last two nights the same man with the same gun chased me and was shooting at me. I tried to call 911 on my cell since one of the times I was in my car. I have never seen this mans face before. I awake terrified and cannot go back to sleep. Last night I dreamed an intruder was coming in my house and I awoke screaming. This in not like me. Can you please help?

 

Dear Dreamer, It is possible to have a "warning" dream about cancer that is meant to be helpful, getting someone to follow-up on treatment so that there is a positive outcome. With this in mind, one interpretation of men with guns is renegade cancer cells that are trying to do the body harm. Another possibility is the subconscious awareness that someone is "shooting you down" (e.g. saying bad things about oneself), and the dreams are trying to bring this to your awareness. Along the same lines, you may have been overly critical of yourself. Just to be on the safe side, I would see your doctor for a checkup.

Here's my dream...

About three years ago I had a cancerous brain tumor that was successfully removed. Last night, I had a pretty vivid dream about going in for a checkup and them finding a new tumor and being devastated. I remember the worst part was calling my mom and telling her that the tumor was back and not as operable. I really freaking out about this, because I am feeling like I need to go get a check up even though I just had one a couple months ago. I am hoping this means something else. Can you help?

 

Dear Dreamer, Hair is often symbolic of ideas or thoughts. Pulling your hair out might be an expression related to stress and anxiety. Therefore, the dream may be suggesting that you are worrying too much about something. If this is the case, you would benefit from learning how to meditate. You can take advantage of our free online meditation course.

Here's my dream...

The other night I dreamt I was in the bathroom urinating and suddenly I noticed my urine was changing color. It was like dirty water from a mop pail. I called my mom and she looked at the toilet and she noticed that the water in the toilet looked dirty. Then we looked closer and I noticed that I was urinating worms! I am a 50-year-old male, my mom is deceased and I am confused about this dream.

 

Dear Dreamer, If the dream is literal, it could be suggesting the need to see as doctor regarding a possible problem, such as a urinary tract infection or prostate problem. This may especially be indicated if your mother died of some cancer-related problem. If the dream is metaphorical, it may be suggesting that there is something "eating you up" that needs to be eliminated, probably in reference to some kind of a family situation. In any event, it is always a good idea to see a doctor whenever an individual dreams about a possible health issue because these dreams can often be preventative in nature. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream...

Although the details of my dream are foggy, here is the general description: I am at home and company arrives. I am interacting with them, talking, even looking at craft items that they brought to me. The entire time they are there, I feel very awkward because I am either completely naked or just have my top exposed (I am not sure) I just remember my chest exposed. Yet my company, although they don't say anything and also seem to feel somewhat awkward, don't leave or comment. I felt very anxious and wanted the visit to end. Please explain.

 

Dear Dreamer, If the dream is literal, it might be suggesting that you need to "clean up your act" and start taking care of yourself because you are about to get pregnant. If the dream is metaphorical, it may be suggesting that some new beginning you have (e.g. a new relationship, a new job, a new focus, etc.) might be negatively impacted if you don't take care of it and yourself and give it the appropriate attention it deserves. In case the dream is literal, let me also suggest that you read the book, Edgar Cayce's Keys to Health by Eric Mein.

Here's my dream...

In my dream I am talking to a friend and then suddenly start coughing and spitting up maggots. My friend ignores this and then tells me that she has cancer. Then she disappears. I've been having this dream for a couple days now, and was curious as to what it could mean?

 

Dear Dreamer, Because maggots are often associated with things that are rotting, the most likely interpretation is that you have been eating "garbage." Another possibility could be that something is "rotting" your stomach or "eating you up" — for example, emotions that you are trying to suppress, etc. In any event, the dream suggests that you may be doing something that is ultimately harmful to you.

Here's my dream...

I am 16 and for the last two weeks I have had, almost nightly, the same recurring dream. It seems simple. I am standing in a very clean kitchen, and I am dirty with mud on my clothes and feet. Then I turn and see an older lady and she pleasantly says, "Wipe your feet." Suddenly I feel confused. Then I wake up. Please help.

 

Dear Dreamer, Having mud on yourself in a dream is often indicative of doing things that are "dirty" (in other words, things that aren't good, appropriate or helpful for the individual). Since our feet are the means in which we walk life's journey, when an individual's feet are dirty it also suggests that the individual may have been doing things that he or she shouldn't have done. Mud can also be associated with the act of "muddying" one's emotions. The older woman could be a symbol of your own higher self or guardian angel, and perhaps the dream is simply encouragement to "straighten up." I hope that helps. You may also enjoy the Discover Your Mission in Life DVD by Mark Thurston. The program has proven very helpful for individuals who are trying to discover their talents, abilities — even their direction in life.

Here's my dream...

My mother has had the same dream twice now that she is in her bathroom and looks up at the mirror to find that the mirror has disappeared - it is just no longer there and instead is just a bare wall. Any ideas on what this might mean as I cant find any vanishing mirror interpretations?

 

Dear Dreamer, The dream may suggest that at this point in your mother's life, she feels as if she has lost her identity. In other words, whether it is because her children are growing an d no longer need her, or because a relationship and/or her job has come to an end, your mother may be in a place right now where she might be asking questions, such as "Who am I, and what am I supposed to be doing with my life right now?" Because she has yet to find her answer to that question, she cannot see her image in the mirror. If this sounds relevant to your mother's situation, she may want to look into the Discover Your Mission in Life DVD by Mark Thurston.

Here's my dream...

I am a 26-year-old female. I have lived a rough life. To make matters worse, I got diagnosed with Leukemia. In the last 2 years I probably have had this dream eight times, Please interpret! It is very disturbing to me. In the dream, I am surrounded by mist and a whole lot of trucks. I have NO Idea where I am but when the mist clears up, my body feels weird. I look down at one arm and then the other and suddenly black caterpillars start coming out of my veins at the wrist. The next minute I am lying in a hospital bed. The "nurses" are putting catheters up both of my legs and gave me 2 huge shots in my hips. The next thing I know was I was trying to touch one of the nurses, when I did so I realized she was a young girl with wings, and she was trying to rescue me from this place. What does this dream mean! Could this have been a guardian angel?

 

Dear Dreamer, Obviously, the dream could be connected to your healing process. The caterpillars are probably associated with the cancer that is in remission (e.g. they have not become butterflies). The catheters in your legs may be connected to how this illness has affected your mobility. And, yes, the woman could have been an angel trying to assist you from that dimension. Let me suggest that you consider reading the book Edgar Cayce on Angels, Archangels, and the Unseen Forces, by Robert Grant. May God bless you at this time.

Here's my dream...

My friend dreamt that I had maggots crawling all over the top of my scalp and towards the end of the dream she noticed that it appeared I was losing some of my hair from the maggots and throughout the dream she kept wondering why I didn't wash my hair to get rid of the maggots. She did say she thought that she remembered someone else in the dream having maggots, as well (she thinks it was my son) and that she didn't want to get too close because she thought she would get maggots. We were wondering if the dream was about me or if it related to her. Thank you for any advice.

 

Dear Dreamer, We rarely dream "for" other people. Other people generally symbolize something for the dreamer. Therefore, your friend needs to ask herself what you symbolize (e.g. perhaps a friend with a great job, a friend with a troubled marriage, a friend with children challenges, etc.) The symbol of maggots is often related to something eating away at something. Since these are in the head and hair, they might correspond to worry. Taken together, the dream could suggest that your friend is very worried (perhaps even making herself sick in the process) over something in her life. That something is being symbolized in the dream by whatever she associates with you.

Here's my dream...

This morning, I had the MOST disturbing dream of my 39 years. In real life, I've recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis (rare for my age). In the dream, I went back to my doctor for more blood-work; he comes to me with the results, and says I have "cardio... (a word I had never heard) - and says, "You have cancer." I asked him how to beat it, and what steps to take. He tells me, "There are none; this is fatal. You are going to die." Somehow, I look at his personal notes, and he has written, "Told patient he was going to die, he refuses to believe it." I go to another doctor, a female, and she asks me to blow into something to check lung capacity. She agrees my body is in fact shutting down, and gives me a series of shots, which I am allergic to, and a red blister like rash appears on my left arm. She then starts injecting a fluid into them, and tells me that I am going to die. She looks sad. Then I walk outside, everything turns golden and I see my wife but only the times I have hurt her with angry words. Then a voice tells me, "Tell your wife, after your death, to marry again. Tell her to go on and be happy. To live." That's when I awoke. Can you PLEASE help me with this? I am beside myself with fear.

 

Dear Dreamer, First of all, anytime an individual has a dream related to a possible health problem, I recommend going to a doctor for a check-up since a literal can suggest a health issue. However, in all likelihood the dream is more metaphorical and suggests instead "something is eating you up inside." That something which could be related to work or relationships, might be causing you to lose interest in some aspect of your life (e.g. in the dream your lungs were shutting down). Although the dream indicates that part of you may have been ignoring this issue for a while, you are not going to be able to ignore it any longer. Hurting a spouse with angry words in a dream could indicate that the pressure of the situation, and not dealing with it, could be having a negative impact upon your relationship. With all this in mind, if your are burned out at work and don't know where to go next, let me recommend the Discover Your Mission in Life DVD by Mark Thurston. If you are having problems in your relationship and things are only getting worse, you may need to seek outside counseling. In addition, to be on the same side, please consider seeing a doctor for an annual check-up.

Here's my dream..

For the past six months I've been having dreams, that are all different, but all have a common occurrence in them. Wherever I might be I have problems walking. I will either walk for a few seconds in pain, or won't actually me able to move my legs and get to wherever I'm trying to go. It doesn't appear in every night's dreams but at least once or twice a month. Why does this keep popping into my dreams? I keep trying to look up the answer online or in books but can't figure out the meaning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Dear Dreamer, This type of dream suggests that one might be having problems pursuing or continuing in their present life's direction. It may suggest that the dreamer no longer has the stamina or the drive to remain in the same career (or perhaps relationship). If this is the case, let me suggest Discover Your Mission in Life DVD by Mark Thurston.

In my dream, I was drinking a can of coke and I don't remember exactly how but somehow I found a fly floating in it or something. Also, as I finished the coke at the bottom there was a dead worm. In my dream, I figured that the fly must of gotten trap and laid an egg. It has been almost a week and I can still remember this dream. Can you help me by telling me if this means something?

Dear Dreamer, The dream might be about diet and suggests that you have been putting things into your body that are "garbage," or are at the very least not healthful to you. If you drink a lot of coke or soda, the dream is likely encouraging you to cut down.

Here's my dream...

I'm a 32-year-old female and since childhood, I've been having dreams that sharp objects like knives, needles, pins, broken glass, etc, were entering my sexual organ and therewith naturally causing me pain. How would you interpret these dreams?

 

Dear Dreamer, This dream might suggest some type of pain or aversion to sexual or intimate relationships which could be the result of sexual or mental abuse. In other words, you may have some aversion to close personal relationships because of the problems you witnessed as a child between your own parents, or the aversion may have come in with you from previous incarnations. In any event, if you have a hard time in close personal relationships, you might consider seeing a counselor. Good luck to you.

Here's my dream...

I recently had a dream that I was lying in bed during the day and about 3-4 inches below my belly button I had a bunch of little white dots and I also had this hole too. It was about at my panty line and it was bloody. Well, I decided I'd open it up and when I did I saw something similar to a worm of some sort. This dream is bugging me and I would really like to know what it means!

 

Dear Dreamer, The dream suggests that something is "eating you up," either metaphorically or literally. If metaphorical, the dream could be suggesting that something is bothering you and you are not quite certain how to deal with it. If the dream is literal, it might indicate some physical condition that needs attention. I would suggest the need to get a medical check-up. Oftentimes, we have warning dreams that end up being very helpful for our own health and well-being. Good luck to you.

Here's my dream...

Well, this is not my dream, but my friend keeps having a recurring dream of me hanging, and it is really starting to scare me because I don't know what it means.

 

Dear Dreamer, We do not usually "dream for" other people. With this in mind, in all likelihood your friend's dream is more likely about herself. You might want to ask your friend what you symbolize to her, for example, someone who has a great job, or a relationship, or  someone who is having a hard time in school. Whatever it is, if the dream is using you as a symbol, than it suggests that the part of her own life that you symbolize for her is having the life choked out of it. If you symbolize someone with a great relationship, it could suggest that her own relationship is on the verge of ending. Conversely, the dream might simply be about the relationship dynamic between the two of you. If this is the case, the neck is often a symbol of the will and it might indicate that the will of one of you is often overpowering the will of the other. It is not likely that the dream would have anything to do with you hanging yourself.

Here's my dream...

My most recent dream involved my left index finger being internally consumed by some foreign entity. The pain was so tremendous that I smashed the tip of my index finger with a hammer to take my mind off of what was eating at the bone. After smashing the tip and exposing tissue and bone it turned out to be maggots chewing away at my flesh. I was so repulsed by the maggots that I awoke from my dream.

 

Dear Dreamer, The left side of the body can often symbolize the past, and the index fingers can be associated with things/activities/involvements that you had your "hands in." It might also be somehow connected to free will. With this in mind, the dream might suggest that something from the past is still "eating you up" — perhaps in terms of regrets or frustration or even anger. The dream might be encouraging you to either turn lose something from the past or find a way to begin dealing with the situation so that you can work through it.

Here's my dream...

I'm a 22-year-old mother of a 9-month-old boy. I keep having the same dream at least once a week. In my dream I'm chewing on chewing gum and go to talk to someone (and its always a different person) so as not to be rude, I try to take the chewing gum out of my mouth but the more I pull at the chewing gum the more my mouth fills with the gum. Can you please help; it's such a strange dream?

 

Dear Dreamer, The dream might suggest that you sometimes have a hard time with words — either in terms of what you want to say getting stuck in your mouth, or what you say ending up unintentionally hurting someone. Although the dream might be suggesting that you chew way too much gum, it might be suggesting that you are somewhat self-conscious about speaking to people. If this is the case, then let me suggest that you join a group that will give you the opportunity to speak with others - anything from Gymboree with your toddler to toastmasters for yourself.

Here's my dream...

I've submitted this dream before but had no response. I will try again with added expectancy: I was sitting in the woodwork room of my old school. It was after hours and no one was around - just me sitting on the floor in the darkness. I was holding a liver, a real liver, in my lap. I strummed it like a guitar while singing aloud to my self "Amazing Grace." What could this be telling me? I am a twenty-six-year-old male; I try to keep fit and healthy; and am somewhat reclusive. I study via correspondence; and enjoy writing creatively. I actually play guitar, and at times I sing this song aloud also. What do you think? I'd appreciate your input greatly?

 

Dear Dreamer, Essentially, the liver is the body organ responsible for: detoxifying poisonous substances, secreting bile, and forming blood proteins in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Oftentimes, when individuals dream about the liver it is connected to having drunk too much (causing the body's systems to overtax themselves). Playing it like a guitar could be associated with playing around with your health, especially as it relates to drinking. However, since you stated that you live a relatively healthful lifestyle, and since you are singing "Amazing Grace," it may suggest that playing around with a recent personal interest in spirituality or religion has enabled you to heal some type of emotional situation (e.g. internal poison) that you had been dealing with. Depending on what has been occurring in your life, you should be able to figure out how these symbols might be appropriate for you at this time.

Here's my dream...

I was in a big house where my sister in law was. She had surgery done on a tumor in her head and was in the hospital for eight days. The strange thing is that she looked awesome; she looked younger than ever and her teeth were white as can be. I asked her why she didn't tell me about her tumor and she said that I had enough to worry about with my own tumor in my head. She showed me where she has to get another tumor removed and it was outside of her head. The tumor was really ugly. It was a hard shell looking thing, black in color. She had a scar on the other side of her head where she had surgery done but it was strange because even though there was this ugly tumor on her she was as radiant and beautiful as ever. The strange part about this is that my 16-year-old son does have a tumor and has seizures. Her son, my nephew, has what we think is seizures and we have been telling her for years now that we think that something is wrong but she wont take him to the doctors. My nephew is afraid that they will take his license away. I don't understand why my sister in law and me are the ones with the tumors in my dreams.

 

Dear Dreamer, A tumor can often be symbolic of some kind of worry that an individual is holding inside his or her head. With this in mind, the dream may be indicating that in spite of your joint worries about your sons, both of you are leading relatively productive and happy lives. However, because all characters in a dream can be symbolic of self, the dream could be indicating that you are somewhat hesitant to take your own son back to the doctor, or take your self to the doctor for some reason. If this is the case, then the dream is suggesting that the doctor could be helpful in whatever situation is occurring. In terms of your nephew, if he is having seizures due to a problem such as epilepsy, he may be interested in researching the Cayce information on the topic. In fact, you might all benefit from looking at the Cayce Health Database.

Here's my dream...

I had a dream last night that I had thousands of maggots in my mouth that came bursting out non stop - I was even choking on them and spitting them out as much as I could, then I woke up. What does this mean?

 

Dear Dreamer, Maggots are generally symbolic of garbage or filth. With this in mind, the dream suggests that your mouth is either filled with filth or disgusting things you've been saying that you should not say, or that you have been eatreing trash in terms of your body's health. Either way, it suggests that you need to change something that you've been doing.

Here's my dream...

I dreamt that I had a wooden leg; my friend had a bad leg also. We both used a cane. We traveled to Europe, where I learned that my other good leg needed to be amputated as well. They removed the leg and attached another wooden leg, thus I could not walk and had to crawl. My friend and I got really drunk and we were outside.

 

Dear Dreamer, Generally a leg can be symbolic of a life's direction or it might indicate a person's foundation or belief system. However, in this country we have a saying about "a wooden leg," which suggests that an individual drinks too much. With this in mind, the dream may be telling you that you are drinking too much and causing physical problems as well as problems in your direction. Alternatively, the dream might simply be saying that something is going on in your life in which you feel unable to follow through on what you really want to do and are having to learn how to "crawl" before you can walk (e.g. take smaller steps leading you to where you want to go).

Dear Dreamer, The eyes can be symbolic of personal insight, the way the mind works, or an individual’s selfhood. The left can be associated with the past or being left brained, and the right can be connected to the future or being right-brained. Someone, for example, who dreamed that their left eye was closed but their right eye was open, might be prone to having a hard time dealing with or thinking about the past. In your case, however, since both eyes are closed it could indicate that one of your challenges in life is trying to see the perspectives and viewpoints of others.

Here's my dream...

I had a dream last night I was in a hotel room with my best friend and I was looking in the mirror and I noticed brown stuff on my teeth. I then brushed it off and realized it was bugs. Then I began spitting big nasty bugs out of my mouth. There were so many and they kept coming out. Also, they ate my teeth. My teeth were falling out. I have nice teeth by the way. But what does this mean?

 

Dear Dreamer, In all likelihood the dream suggests that you have been saying things about others that you should not have said. Bugs can be associated with things that are dirty, biting, filthy, disgusting etc. The dream is showing you how these things keep coming out of your mouth. The presence of the friend suggests that this person may be instrumental in encouraging you to say things you shouldn’t, or that the two of you have this habit in common, or that you were saying bad things about this friend. In any event, the dream may simply be encouraging you to “clean up your act” in terms of how you speak about others. I hope that helps.In all likelihood the dream suggests that you have been saying things about others that you should not have said.

Here's my dream...

I had a dream the other night that I was talking on the phone and I had a heart attack. Well, I dropped the phone and was clutching my chest. I was unable to speak. In order to get my mother’s attention I threw something and it broke against the wall. She came running in the living room where I was on the floor, with the phone still on beside me. At first she thought I was faking but she realized I wasn’t and picked up the phone and shouted. She then rushed me to the hospital. All I remember after that is that I was still alive. What does the dream mean?

 

Dear Dreamer, The dream has a number of possibilities but two of the most likely are as follows: If the dream is literal, it is suggesting that you are going to be okay but that you should see a doctor about your health and receive a physical. The phone is a symbol for communication and your mother can literally be your mother or your family. Conversely, if the dream is metaphorical, it is suggesting that something is hurting your feelings/attitude, almost to the point of “killing” you but that you are having a hard time communicating what is going on with you so that people around you truly understand the challenge(s) you are currently facing. In either event, the dream is suggesting that you may need help beyond yourself at this point in your life.

Here's my dream...

Over the past week, I’ve had recurring dreams about having things in my ears. The context surrounding this changes with each dream but from what I remember I suddenly notice there is something there and try to pull it out/dig it out with my fingers. More and more comes out, sort of in a long tube and crumbles on the ground (like burnt incense sticks) and I am left feeling in one sense purged, and in another grossed out by what came out. There is also the sense that there is still stuff left in there either that I can’t reach, or that is too cemented in to be removed. It is quite an unpleasant dream and I’m wondering if it means anything?

 

Dear Dreamer, Since the focus is upon the ears, the dream is suggestive of a problem with listening or hearing. This problem might be associated with others – such as a difficulty in communication – or it might be connected with your feelings of not being able to hear your own “inner voice.” Overall, I think the dream is suggesting that you have been working on some kind of personal growth or healing process and that during that process you have become aware of issues that need to be cleared out or straightened, but the more you try to heal or fix them the more you have become aware of the extent of the problem. I hope that helps. Good luck to you.

Here's my dream...

I am a recovered alcoholic and have no desire to drink in my conscious life. I often have dreams about being intoxicated and feeling very guilty about it. In many of the dreams something bad is happening that I could prevent if I was sober and that adds to the guilty feelings. Does this mean that I am in danger of a relapse?

 

Dear Dreamer, I don’t think the dream has anything to do with a relapse. Oftentimes, the subconscious mind will use thematic images and ideas to bring something to the consciousness of the dreamer. Since drinking in the past left you with feelings of guilt and being out of control, then the dreams may be suggesting that there is something going on in your life about which you feel guilty (or that something is out of control in your life), and your mind is simply pulling together a dream that will bring that awareness to your mind. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream...

I am separated from my wife (not legally though) and we don’t live together. Last night I had a dream about her. She told me that her arm had been amputated because she had some disease. She was very calm about it. I was horrified and went to see her but couldn’t at first see her am. Then, next thing I was lying in bed with her, she was on her stomach and now I could see what was left of her right arm – it was amputated above the elbow. It cut was at an angle, I reached out and felt the stump. It felt terrible and I felt immense sadness. Can you tell me what this means? We are actually on good terms and see each other on a fairly regular basis although we don’t have sex (and haven’t for about 2 years). My wife told me she doesn’t love me but she hasn’t asked for a divorce either. What does all this mean? Help!

 

Dear Dreamer, Have you ever heard the expression, “He’s my right arm”? The expression really suggests a relationship that is extremely close to the point of being indispensable. With this in mind, the dream suggests that because of the separation you may still feel as if you have lost part of yourself. If this were the case, I would recommend that the two of you consider counseling so that you can get on with your lives. Good luck to you.
