Online Database of Past Dream Interpretations: Dreams About Babies, Children, and Families

Here's my dream...

I am 4 months pregnant and I recently found out I am having a baby boy. I had a dream that he was born but he was a girl. What does this mean?

Dear Dreamer. There are several possibilities. One is that you are going to have a second child, and that child will be a girl. Another possibility is that your son will be very empathetic and sensitive. A third possibility might be that the dream is letting you know that your son may questions about his own sexuality.

Here's my dream...

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over two years now without success. My doctor has put me on Clomid to help me ovulate (both my husband and I are 41 years old). Trying to get pregnant has been very emotionally trying, since we both want a baby very badly and have not gotten pregnant yet. It is hard to see other women pregnant or to see mothers with babies or going to baby showers when I want a baby so bad and cannot seem to get pregnant; it usually brings me to tears. It is especially trying when other people keep asking, "When are we going to have a baby." Last night, I had a dream that my husband and I attended a funeral of a family who we did not know; all of my relatives and other acquaintances were there too. At the very end of the service, one of the family members who died was a baby. I could not take it and asked my husband if we could leave because seeing the passed away baby was pushing me over the edge emotionally. We left the funeral but went to a gathering after the funeral; people were eating and socializing. I felt very sad in this dream, and the people in my dream seemed to not even accept my sadness over this family who died. In real life, no one seems to understand my overwhelming emotions about trying to conceive. My husband tries to help, but he is more accepting that we may not have a baby. We cannot afford IVF. Is my dream telling me to give up hope of having a child?

Dear Dreamer, According to Edgar Cayce, most often dreams simply contrast and correlate the events of the day — providing emotional images and pictures that correspond with what the dreamer is experiencing in waking life. In other words, the emotion you felt at the funeral is similar to the emotion you have been feeling over not being able to conceive. The "dead" baby you didn't want to have to deal with could represent the same "death" (e.g. giving up the possibility of having a baby) that you don't want to have to deal with in waking life. I don't think the dream is necessarily precognitive, it is simply reflecting back what you have been experiencing. With this in mind, let me suggest that you and your husband consider dreaming on specific questions to get "next step" answers. For example, consider writing out the question, "What should we do to be able to conceive a child." Both you and your husband should read the question before going to bed and upon waking, write down whatever dreams you remember. Also, just for the experience, write out the question. "Should we adopt a baby?" dream on it and see what happens. As you begin to watch your dreams, you will gain -- in all likelihood -- guidance and direction over this question. Good luck to you both.

Here's my dream...

 I am in my early 60's, never married and no children due to earlier mental health disabilities and problems in my life. I have come full circle. Sometimes I wish I were younger so that I could create solid relationships with men and perhaps find one who could be my partner and father to children. I love children and have taught them for 12 years effectively. Last night I had a dream that a lady in her mid 80's came into our building lobby and announced she had a baby. Others came in and out with the same message. Then I went out and returned with the good news that I also had a baby. The baby looked just like my baby pictures.

Dear Dreamer, The dream suggests that there is something creative you really desire to do in life but part of you may be preventing you from pursuing that dream, perhaps by thinking "I'm too old," however, the elderly lady in the dream in indicating that you are never too old. The fact that she has a baby and then you discover one as well suggests that you still have a baby to nurture in your own life (e.g. a new beginning, a new project, a new pursuit, etc.). Good luck to you.

Here's my dream...

I am two months pregnant and my partner is scared how the baby will change his life as he is 53, never had a child and never thought he would. We are keeping the baby, although he is scared. I dreamt that blood flowed out of me and I shouted, "I'm losing my baby." I looked on the ground and the floor was covered in birdseed. I looked outside and saw hundreds of boats and people all around having a great time and happy. I asked my partner to take me to the hospital but he was in no rush. I asked my sister to take me, again no rush. Why didn't they understand, I was losing my baby and if I got to the hospital I might be able to save my baby. I was in great panic but everyone around me was so calm and in no rush. My partner ended up driving me though he was acting like we were going for a pleasant drive and there was no rush to get anywhere. When I got to the hospital I woke up and don't know if I lost my precious baby. I woke and told my partner about my dream. In the morning he told me about his dream. He dreamt that he had loaned his body to a friend - almost like putting on a suit. The next scene (his body had been returned to him at this point), he saw some rubbish on the ground, picked it up and through it in what he thought was a bin. This bin ended up being an oven and the rubbish was being cooked. He looked down at his nails and they were dirty. He and his family were sitting down at the table ready for dinner including his mother who passed away about 5 years ago (it was always her dream for him to have a baby). I was not at the dinner and he was missing me and wondered where I was. His mother than told him I had died. Please help me, as I am worried.

Dear Dreamer, In brief, your dream may simply be presenting some of your fears that you may have to do this alone and fearing that you could end up all alone in the process. Your boyfriend's dream could simply be presenting the fact that he is concerned that he is having to make the best of a "bad" situation. However, the presence of his friend might indicate the results of this pregnancy. In other words, if his friend recently had a child (or had an unexpected child late in life) and that child is now very important to his friend, that would be an extremely positive symbol. There is a chance that this baby could be a wonderful experience for both of you.

Here's my dream...

 I dreamed that my brother-in-law (whom I don't care too much about) was just getting home from prison. My sister who was and still is cheating on him got caught. He beat her to death in front of his six kids. In the dream I showed up and killed him for what he had done. I don't think I would do this in real life so if you could please help me out. This isn't the first time I've had a dream were my sister's husband is hitting her. He's in prison now and is scheduled to get out in several years.

Dear Dreamer, Again, as is often the case, dreams can have a metaphorical (symbolical) as well as a literal meaning. If the dream is literal, it may be suggesting that in spite of the fact that your brother-in-law is in prison, he may still be a threat to your family. If this is the case, your sister should probably pursue getting help, both legally as well as from a counselor. However, since we generally do not dream "for" other people, a metaphorical interpretation could suggest that your opinion of your brother-in-law and/or your sister is "killing" the relationship between the two of you. It might be good for several family members (including the children) to receive counseling before your brother-in-law's release. Good luck to all of you.

Here's my dream...

 Last night I had a dream about my friend who died about 3 years ago. In the dream it showed my dad who is still alive being taken away by the police for drugs, which he really does. After he was taken away, I tried to run away and I ran into my friend that died and I said you can't be here your dead and she just stood there and said, "You're pregnant," and I screamed and woke up. Normally that wouldn't bother me but there's a big possibility that it is true. Was she trying to tell me something, I mean should I have anything to worry about? Please help. I'm only 16.

Dear Dreamer, Your deceased friend may have come to you to offer advice and counsel about what is going on in your life. As soon as possible, you need to find out if you are pregnant. Let me recommend contacting the local chapter of Planned Parenthood - they can give you free counseling and advice. Another option may be to visit this link, which is where young unwed mother's offer advice about what they did to work through a similar situation: Teenadvice.about.com. If the dreams are "metaphorical," and not literal, they are simply suggesting that you need to take precautions because your choices and decisions will eventually catch up with you. Please find someone who can help you with the pregnancy possibility as soon as possible.

Here's my dream...

 About 4 years ago we lost our baby girl due to premature birth. She spent her 4-1/2 short months with us in the NICU. I've had dreams "about" her from time to time since her passing, but never remember having seen her in the dreams. Mind you it's been a long while since I've dreamed about her and I've only done it a few times. This morning however I had a dream so vivid that I literally woke up sobbing. In the dream, myself, my mother and my youngest sister were sitting in what I assumed to be the NICU waiting area, waiting to see Savannah (my daughter). It was very white and sterile looking...very bare. I remember telling my mother that I didn't know how much longer I could do this. That I couldn't see her like this any longer. I remember thinking, but never voicing to her that I thought maybe it was time to remove her from her ventilator...that she was just suffering too much. There were mothers everywhere in the dream...all waiting to see their babies. But I don't remember seeing any babies. Someone called us in to see Savannah and it seemed to me that they told me she was doing much better. Which made me feel much relief. We walked up on a nurse sitting in a rocking chair with her back to me...I could see she was rocking a child. As I got close I could see what I felt to be my daughter. She had no tubes, or machines hooked to her as she had before. She was smiling at me with big shining brown eyes. It was that "Hi! I know you! You're my mommy!" kind of smile. It was as if she were never sick, never on any machines. I fell to my knees sobbing in relief. It was at this point that I woke up crying. But I don't have the same feeling in my waking that I had in my dream. In the dream I was crying from joy but the dream has left me very sad, and almost grieving as much as I did soon after her passing. I feel like maybe she was trying to tell me she was okay but I'm not sure. My husband seems to think that it has to do with my hormones, as I'm due to give birth in just a few weeks. Any insight you could give me would helpful. Thank you.

Dear Dreamer, In brief, the dream might be trying to tell you to release Savannah and prepare for the arrival of your baby. You even recognize this in the dream: "I didn't know how much longer I could do this," and "I couldn't see her like this any longer." However, the dream is also suggesting that the soul that had been Savannah may be coming back to you in this new birth: "As I got close I could see what I felt to be my daughter. She had no tubes, or machines hooked to her as she had before. She was smiling at me with big shining brown eyes. It was that 'Hi! I know you! You're my mommy!' kind of smile. It was as if she were never sick." I would like to suggest that your deceased child is returning to you. Good luck to you and your husband — and tell your husband the dream is about much more than hormones. : )

Here's my dream...

 I'm a 15-year-old girl. A couple months ago my dog sweetie died when I was at school (she died at my house) and when I came home from track practice she was already gone. I was a little disturbed by this but I went to sleep with her on my mind...that same night I had a dream. I was wearing my holey pants (there's one hole on the left knee) my shirt that has a kitten on it saying 'have a nice day somewhere else', and my good ol' boys car club hat on. I was watching myself enter my living room where I found her on my living room table, she lifted her paw up in a sort of begging matter, (she used to stand on her hind legs as her trademark thing) and immediately ran up to her crying my eyes out saying things like 'I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry..." When I picked her up she felt a little cold but she leaned into me like she was basking into my touch one last time.

Dear Dreamer, In the same way that we can have real communication with deceased individuals (see dream archives), we can have the same experience with our pets who have passed on. My sense is that your dog came to see you, just to reassure you that he was fine.

Here's my dream...

I dreamed last night that my 2-year-old son was dead. Throughout my dream it would flash back and forth from the funeral of where he was laying in a casket next to people having sex. I am not sure of the reason for his death in my dream. At the very end of my dream I was standing in my mother's kitchen and completely lost control due to the fact he was dead. Now, I have lost several family members that are close to me and this morning when I woke up I was terrified. I need to know what this dream means!

Dear Dreamer, Much of the interpretation may be connected to your personal life and what is going on at this time that may be taking your time, energy, focus and attention away from your son. For example, one thing the dream may suggest is that a personal, sexual relationship you are having could be taking time and energy away from your son.

Here's my dream...

I dreamt that my mom had another baby, a little girl, which isn't possible because she's too old now. I was extremely jealous of it. My parents gave all their attention to the baby and none to me. I am currently the youngest child. What does this mean?

Dear Dreamer, Oftentimes in a dream water can be symbolic of spirituality or emotion. Water that is murky, dirty or muddy generally suggests an emotional experience that is a challenge to deal with, even a mess. Driving in a car is often associated with one's personal life journey. With these two things in mind, the dream is simply showing the status of your friend's life with her husband — she is "stuck" in her current situation with her husband and doesn't see a way out. I think that your friend should seriously consider seeing a counselor, as the dream suggests her current means of dealing with the situation is not helping her make any progress.

Here's my dream...

Please help me! I am very nervous right now! I had a dream that my three-year-old niece died and then somehow she came to my house and told me "Aunt Sarah. I don't want to die because I can't dance then." The next scene was at her funeral when the walls fell apart and I saw brown and black striped paneling and her face in a glass rose. When I woke up and I was literally crying. I need advice. What is going on? Is it because she is going to be my flower girl in my wedding in a few months? I love her with all my heart. How can someone dream something so horrible like this especially about a loved one that is innocent? Help.

Dear Dreamer, The language of the brain is symbols, and those symbols are simply designed to bring to mind feelings, patterns, advice, etc., in our daily life. Although a literal interpretation of the dream could suggest death, a much more likely interpretation is a metaphorical one. Since you associate your niece with your wedding, one possibility suggested by the dream is that after your wedding your relationship with your niece will change, and the old relationship might die. For example, maybe your new life journey will entail a move or a new schedule that doesn't give you the same opportunity to be around your niece. However, the love that you've shared will forever be a part of your lives — note in the dream how her face became a glass rose (a symbol of ideal love). I think the dream is simply about change coming into your life.

Here's my dream...

I have had dreams on three different occasions that a baby is falling, but they really don't hurt themselves. They cry for a little bit, but not seriously hurt. The last baby does bleed and appeared to be unconscious when I approached to aid him. At that point he regained consciousness and seemed to be okay. Can you tell me what that means and why I have been dreaming this?

Dear Dreamer, In all likelihood the dreams are about work or some kind of personal projects that you are involved in. Not dropping a baby may be a metaphor for not falling down on tasks necessary for completing a project. With this in mind, I think the dream is suggesting that someone around you has been repeatedly letting you or the company down on projects and this last occasion you had to run in and take control of the situation so as to not miss out on an opportunity. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream...

My two boys, ages 6, have been having nightmares that someone is trying to kill me and they wake up crying. We lost my husband, their father three years ago to homicide. He was killed in one of our cars in the back of our house; the kids and I were in the house asleep, when I heard him yell out for my name. My husband's mother felt the need to explain in detail what happened to their father. Of course this was done behind my back, I didn't think they needed to know the details at such a young age. When I use to go out with girlfriends they would say: "Mommy don't go," and of course I felt bad, so I only go out for birthday parties every now and then. I have them enrolled in activities and we spend a lot of time together. We play games, eat and watch television together. What can I do to stop my boys from thinking and feeling like I will be next, and they will be left with no parents?

Dear Dreamer, Certainly the trauma of losing a father at the age of three will have an impact upon your sons for the rest of their lives. Part of that impact will be a symbolic one, in that whenever they dream about a death it could suggest that their lives are about to undergo an abrupt and immediate change — one in which they may not have control. With this in mind, if you do such things as: have a change in jobs or work time, move to a new location, change schools for your sons, get engaged or married, etc., the symbolism they may dream about is your death because from now on the death of a parent might be a metaphor for personal change. All that said, I think the Edgar Cayce information would recommend pre-sleep suggestion. What this means is as they are drifting off to sleep, you can softly and quietly reassure them with such phrases as: "You are safe and your Mommy is going to be safely with you" or "Mommy loves you and she is not going anywhere," and so forth. By working with pre-sleep suggestion over a period of weeks, you should be able to greatly diminish their fears of abandonment.

Here's my dream...

Please help! I have been through this dream many times in the last year. I dreamed that I am having sex with my father but it was similar to rape. I was not shouting but I was fighting with both hands. My screams were very low and it was dark. He was above me and all I could remember was standing over him was thought I was watching the whole thing as well as being involved. I don't hate my father and he has never hurt me in his life or has any bad intentions. I am sure of that! What is this dream supposed to mean?

Dear Dreamer, If the dream is simply metaphorical, it could suggest that your father is "controlling" you in terms of your relationship with others. It might also suggest that he is "abusing" you mentally because of his control. Although a literal interpretation would suggest some kind of sexual abuse, it could also be abuse from a previous experience together that sometimes impacts your feelings with one another in the present. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream...

Hello, I am 9 months pregnant and a male friend of mind had a dream about me concerning my pregnancy. He did not go into detail but he said that it was a full moon and that I said: "I can't believe it is happening now." He also said that the father of my child had mud on his face. I am wondering what the mud on the face means? I would appreciate anything you could offer.

Dear Dreamer, Although it's conceivable that your coworker's dream is a prophetic dream that you will give birth during the next cycle of the moon, the dream probably has more to do with your coworker than with you. In other words, we don't generally dream for other people unless we are somehow emotionally connected to them. With this in mind, the dream suggests that your coworker will have some kind of a new birth or a new beginning sometime soon and that new beginning might be prompted by someone else's behavior or embarrassment. In other words, someone else messes something up somehow, so your coworker ends up getting another project. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream...

Every night this week I have had the same dream and it is scaring me a lot. I have been dreaming that I was abused by my father and that I am in the hospital dying. I have a lot of broken bones and bruises and I have at least 6 or 7 broken ribs. I am always dying in the hospital but I never really see the whole abusive part but I know it was my father. The first couple of times I had this dream i am always okay at the end. I go home and eventually recover from it but last night I died before I could even be considered for home. Every night I dream that my injuries just get worse and worse, and I am afraid of going to sleep. Please tell me what this means. Am I in danger?

Dear Dreamer, Part of the answer is dependent upon your father and your relationship with your father. If your father has been abusive to yourself or another members of the family, then it could be a warning dream and you need to do something immediately. However, if your father has not been physically abusive, then it simply might suggest that his "control" over you may be impacting you and "killing" a part of you. For example, this could happen if you have your heart set on doing something in college and your father says no. In other words, the dream may be a metaphor for being "beaten up" in terms of being unable to do what you long to do.

Here's my dream...

 

My girlfriend miscarried a few weeks ago. We were expecting a boy. I keep having dreams that the baby lived and that he is there with my girlfriend and me. I've seen him growing up and living his life. I've had dreams about his prom, wedding, first date, and all sorts of stuff. Please help!

Dear Dreamer, I think the dream is suggesting that in spite of whatever grief you and your girlfriend have been experiencing, this child is trying to comfort you by showing you that he is indeed coming in to your life at some point and that everything will be okay. Oftentimes, souls that did not have the opportunity to complete the birth process return to the very same parents the next time the opportunity presents itself - oftentimes when the situation is more conducive to raising a child (e.g. having a good job, completing college, being married, etc.). If you would like to read more about this phenomenon, let me recommend an excellent book entitled The Lightworkers Guide to Healing Grief by Tina Erwin.

Here's my dream...

A friend dreamt that my son, Jared, called her looking for me because I had not come home and he was calling around to everyone and no one had seen me and that the police became involved and that she was the one to find me dead under a house.

Dear Dreamer, The dream has a variety of interpretations, all dependent upon what your friend thinks about in terms of your relationship with Jared. In all likelihood, the dream has nothing to do with you or Jared but is instead about your friend and her family. One possibility is that she has been having problems with her relationship with her own children – Jared symbolizing the relationship she would like to have with her own children – and that she is at a loss as to how she might recapture what she once had. If this is the case, your friend might consider writing out a question such as: “What can I do about my relationship with so and so,” dream on it for a few nights, and see if the theme of the dream can give her answers to the question. The dream probably has nothing to do with you unless you have been talking to your friend about your own problems and she is worried about you.

Here's my dream...

I have had this dream three times now and I am not sure of the meaning. The dream is that my mother and father-in-law are in court with me and they are trying to take my kids from me. My brother and sister-in-law are right behind them. My family is behind me. Next, they bring in my daughter and put her on the stand. She tells them that I am a good mother and that they don't go without-that I have been there for them from the time they have been born. She also tells them about the times that her grandma has been mean to her and her mother. When she gets off the stand she goes over to her grandma and yells at her and tells her that she hates her and that she will never talk to her again. I stand up and tell her that she should show her grandmother some respect and she runs out of the room. I send my sister after her and after a while she comes back with her. Then the judge starts to talk and then I wake up. The last time I had this dream my father in law was not there. Please let me know what this means. It dose worry me that this might happen. I have lost enough in my life I lost my kids father about three years ago and I know that don't want to lose my kids also.

Dear Dreamer, A literal interpretation might be that you could be in danger of losing your kids but a metaphorical interpretation suggests instead that sometimes you may question yourself as to how good of a parent you really are. This personal questioning and perhaps lack of self-esteem is being presented to you in the form of your in-laws, who are questioning your parenting skills-perhaps as you do in waking life. An alternative interpretation could be that your in-laws (or your husband) tend to be too critical of you and the way you do things, and the dream is trying to portray the fact that you do nothing wrong. In either event, the dream suggests that there is too much criticism being directed at you-either self-directed or from other people.

Here's my dream...

My father committed suicide five years ago. My previous dreams about my father have been very pleasant. This morning I woke up from a dream where my father walked into my family room and clearly stated to me that, "The kids are staying home tomorrow, school is closed. They found out that a man is watching your daughter from across the lake and they want the kids to stay home." I knew he meant that this man was going to try and kidnap my daughter (age 12). I was so frightened that I woke up with my heard pounding. Was my father trying to warn me?

Dear Dreamer, Although it's possible that the dream is a warning dream, a more likely interpretation centers on your father and whatever you most recall when you think about him. For example, your father might symbolize "depression," or "the end of something special," and so forth-whatever most comes to mind. With this in mind, the dream could be suggesting that your daughter is depressed or experiencing something that your father once experienced. In other words, the man that is trying to "kidnap" your daughter could also be a symbol for whatever took your father away. At the very least, if you daughter has been having emotional problems lately, the dream is definitely suggesting that she needs to get out of her regular routine and find someone that she feels comfortable talking to.

Here's my dream...

I am currently 5 months pregnant with my first child. I dreamt that I was holding my little girl as a newborn and then I was watching her play outside walking around. In the dream she was running after a butterfly and got too close to the top of a drop and before I could get to her she fell several feet to the bottom of a cement ground and died. This dream has really upset me and I would like to know what it might mean. Thank you.

Dear Dreamer, Although a literal dream might indicate some kind of a challenge with your pregnancy, a much more likely interpretation is a metaphorical one that deals specifically with you. If the dream is about having a child, then the dream could indicate that freedom as you have known it (as illustrated by the butterfly) is about to come to a complete end because of having a child. Alternately, the dream may have nothing to do with your child and could indicate that some new beginning you have been chasing after (e.g. work or a personal opportunity) is going to drop out of site and come to an end. I hope that helps.

Here's my dream...

My husband dreamt that I was having sex with his brother and that I instigated the whole thing. What does this mean? I also have dreamt that a woman was trying to take my husband away from me.

Dear Dreamer, Your husband’s dream could indicate that he either feels very competitive with his brother, himself, or another family member in regards to something that is very important to him; or, it might suggest that he feels like his relationship with you is making him deal with family situations that he doesn’t want to deal with. Your dream could suggest that your husband has other commitments and/or obligations (work/hobbies, etc.) that you feel like sometimes takes him away from you.

Here's my dream...

I am a person that rarely dreams or maybe I don’t pay attention to my dreams. Three days ago I attended my regular bible class on Wednesday’s and that night I had a dream about a Demon holding a woman and torturing her. It was a nightmare and I woke-up scared. Then on Friday I had a dream that my daughter went on a rafting trip with her friends at college and I received a call from the college to come and identify her body. In my dream, I walked down this narrow hallway and found a corpse drawer that had a tag on the front that said time of death. I pulled out the drawer and brushed away the long hair of a woman and saw my daughter’s face with her eyes closed. I yelled out this horrifying scream and cried and cried. As I was closing the drawer, her eyes opened and I tried to tell everyone she was alive but no one listened to me. I woke up terrified and could not go back to sleep. I am trying analyze what these dreams mean and hope I don’t have any more of them cause my sleeping habits are not good since my first nightmare on Wednesday. My daughter is in college and I have not heard from her in a week. Usually she calls twice a week and I know she is busy with her internship and studying for finals. Maybe since I am worried about my daughter’s welfare could explain why I am having these dreams. I am a single parent and have a business in my home. My son is eighteen and lives with me.

Dear Dreamer, First of all, we all dream an average of approximately ninety minutes per night. In all likelihood the demon is representative of the worries or fears you are currently wrestling with. The woman these worries torture is you. Your daughter on a rafting trip with friends may be symbolic of her undertaking her life’s journey in a way that you are not involved (e.g. her going away to school). Dealing with your daughter’s death is probably connected with the “death” in your old relationship since she has gone away to school. For example, even though she is still alive, it still may feel like a death since she went away to school and has been busy with her new life and activities. If you’d like to learn how to work with dream, let me suggest that you return to this dream column now and again and read the dreams and the interpretations. Let me also recommend a dream book by Kevin Todeschi, Dream Images and Symbols.

Here's my dream...

My husband and I had our first baby, a boy, die at three days old. We have been trying to conceive for 19 months now. I am currently on fertility medication. Last night I had a dream that I am with the female members of my family on a cruise. In the dream I am very pregnant and close to delivery. I walk out onto the deck where the pool is and I see my grandmother (whom I don’t have a great relationship with) sunbathing. I turn around and walk away without exchanging any words with her. The next thing I know I am in a room on this ship giving birth vaginally. Which is not possible for me. I had a c-section with my first child and will with all subsequent children. When the baby came out my aunt was holding it. The baby is crying and will not stop. I’m crying for my husband and I have no idea where he is. All of the sudden my grandmother snatches the baby out of my aunt’s arms and throws the baby (a girl, with lots of jet black curly hair and wearing a pink shirt) down on my arm. She tells my aunt very rudely, “She is just going to have to take care of it herself!” The baby is crying and crying and then my dream ends. What does this mean?

Dear Dreamer, Because of your relationship with your grandmother, her symbol in the dream could indicate your own critical and harsh thoughts about yourself. The fact that you cannot find your husband suggests that during much of this process of trying to get pregnant you have felt alone with your own thoughts. That process of being alone has also made you have to deal with some of the female (or even self) issues that have been with you for much of your life. Giving birth vaginally could symbolize that when you do have a child, you will heal some of these female (perhaps even mother-related) issues.  

Here's my dream...

Well this is not my dream but rather the dream of a friend’s son. You see my friend has been bothered by this dream her son had the other night. He dreamed she was driving along and suddenly was killed by a drunk driver. The driver fled and so her son chased after him caught him and killed him. She wants to know what this means please if you could?

Dear Dreamer, Rather than interpreting this dream literally, a more likely possibility suggests that this young man’s mother could represent his own “higher self” or the personal parental figure he has within his consciousness. With this in mind, the dream could be suggesting that the son is harming his own future and life direction by excessive drinking and/or by doing things that he knows would “kill” his mother.
