I was awake just before having this dream, there was a loud thunderstorm going on, it finally quieted down and I dreampt ll of this. It seemed like a lot more happened in this dream than the last few dreams I've had combined. A lot of content, subjects, objects, and people.
I was all over the place in this dream, the setting was constantly changing and I was moving the entire time. The first part of the dream that I remember was running in the sand, I was on a beach or next to a really wide river. I was running and feeling good, like a child, jumping over any little obstacles and at one point I felt like someone was running with me, with our arms over eachother, running and jumping. We stopped once or twice for a few seconds. I noticed some pants that looked oddly dry floating down the river and I thought maybe it was windy and inflating them enough to keep them above the water. Then I noticed 3 teddy bears sitting in the sand, 2 were very big and one was smaller, I remember taking the smaller one and hugging him and running off with it.
I also remember riding a bike thru a suburbian area, I dropped something on the street, I think they were padlocks and I figured I would turn around and come back for them and the road turned and then all I could think about was going back for what I had dropped. I was still concerned about it thru other parts of the dream.
Next think I knew I was getting into a car with a couple of girlfriends, I'm not sure exactly who I was with but I did sense friendly company. One of the people might have been my friend Jillian, and I remember her saying "You drive like me!" when I did something dangerous. We kept stopping on the wrong side of the road, I'm not sure why, and there were other cars that came and went. Then we saw and picked up about 5 hitchhikers, they were all girls about my age or a little older. One was pregnant. The car was very crowded. I remember seeing one of my quiet and very shy housemates in the back of the car before all the other girls got in and I thought 'she isn't going to like this'. We asked them where they were going, they seemed secretive and a little odd but they wanted to go to Minneapolis. We sat off to the wrong side of the road and looked at all the freeway signs trying to figure out how to get to Minneapolis until we finally found the route. We got there fast and then we were at this house... It was like a clubhouse for girls or a sorority but you didn't see any college around. The girls all wore the same pink t-shirts and I guess they were entertaining all the guests. I wandered around and tried to take a picture of the entryway because it was really beautiful and I like to take pictures of details of houses I like.
It was all white, the door, the walls. You could see outside thru a narrow window and window above the door. There was a beautiful tree outside that was covered in fresh snow. Inside, there was also a young birch tree that looked snowy white and had red ornaments on it. There were red lights, it was beautiful. The red light idea really seemed to be what I liked. I'm trying to remember now something written out in red lights that I saw but it's too fuzzy for me to remember, it might have been a dream earlier in the night. It looked a Christmasy but in a classy way, no Santa or loud wrapping paper. I was using the camera on my phone and someone said "that camera looks weird" and I just ignored them. It was too dark where I was standing to take the picture and the next thing I knew all the girls in pink t-shirts were lining up in the room to start singing.
The last part of the dream I remember was walking down the street, apparently on my way to work. It was evening I think and I stopped and waited as this bus dropped off a passenger in front of me. When I went to cross the street, traffic picked up and I felt silly for trying to cross now. I looked down and the sewer grate on the corner I was on looked huge. I think then I decided to just take another route and walked the other way. When I finally reached the end of the block I turned and looked down the street where I worked and I had another 7 blocks to walk, it was dark and completely barren, no cars, no pedestrians, when I turned around there was no one, it scared me. Moments before it had been so busy and no it was deserted. I decided to turn around. I woke up to my roommate getting home.
I forgot to write about the dream I had 2 nights ago, my friend yelled out distinctly in the dream "It's a problem with your voice!" and that's all I remember.
beach or next to a really wide river
Rivers represent the flow of energy and life force
running and feeling good, like a child, jumping over any little obstacles
Being carefree, possibly chidlike or irresponsible.
pants that looked oddly dry floating down the river and I thought maybe it was windy and inflating them enough to keep them above the water
Consider the type of pollution and what it represents. Men's pants, kakhi color, dry and floating on top of the river.
3 teddy bears sitting in the sand, 2 were very big and one was smaller, I remember taking the smaller one and hugging him and running off with it.
Teddy bears represent a regression to a child-hood state, may representing lost companionship, comfort, and security. You desire to be reassured and cared for.
riding a bike
Riding a bicycle represents your desire to attain balance and control in your life, consider how well you are riding the bike.
Potential, growth, prosperity, family, idyllic life, alternatively it may represent monotany and be encouragement to break out of the mold.
Security, being kept out of some situation or activity, some part of yourself maybe locked up.
I'm in the driver's seat- I'm the person most in charge of my life's direction
Ambition, drive, ability to navigate from one phase of life to another
stopping on the wrong side of the road
Literally being on the wrong side of things.
picked up about 5 hitchhikers
taking on too many responsibilities, fine line to helping someone and letting them take advantage of you
freeway signs trying to figure out how to get to Minneapolis
driving on a freeway represents freedom, liberation, and that you are well on your way to acheiving your goals, consider any obstacles/traffic on the freeway and quickly it's moving.
clubhouse for girls or a sorority
personal growth, social changes, expand your awareness or knowledge in this aresa.
pink: love, happiness, sweetness, joy, immaturity or weakness when it comes to love
take a picture of the entryway
you need to get a clearer picture or idea of whatever you are taking a picture of
you need to focus more on some situation or relationship
snow. Inside, there was also a young birch tree that looked snowy white and had red ornaments on it. There were red lights
Snow: you may need to express yoursellf more, be less inhibited
Birch: to see a birch tree reprents self punishment and guilt issues
Consider the shape and health state of the tree, this mirrors the health of your spiritual growth
Red lights: Danger, warning, need for caution. Could also symbolize prostitution of your physical body, talents, or abilities.
walking down the street, apparently on my way to work. It was evening I think and I stopped and waited as this bus dropped off a passenger in front of me.
sewer grate on the corner I was on looked huge
You need to clean up and change your attitudes about past relationships
Represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, things have become too routine.
take another route
it was dark and completely barren, no cars, no pedestrians
I think the river at the beginning probably represents the life force around me, I'm not sure why there would be men's pants polluting the river, maybe because the world is out of balance with male energy toxic levels. This and the theme of everyone in the dream being a girl/sorority/pink says a lot to me and was probably influenced a lot by the first vagina monologue show I went to this weekend and the time that I've been spending with mostly women.
Riding a bike represents trying to attain balance in my life, which I'm doing, I was pretty good at riding the bike although I did drop the padlocks on the street. The padlocks represent security. So to attain balance I have to give up a little security? I was still concerned with having lost them toward the end of the dream so that obviously says something.
Riding in a suburb probably represents monotany, I wanted to ride out of there and I did.
I was driving the car pretty well, besides stopping on the wrong side of the road several times. Finding the route was very hard. Navigation, it seemed, in life or otherwise, was more about luck and intuition than using a map or even paying attention to all the signs. Maybe this is advice on how to plan my future course?
Being in the house full of girls is probably symbolic of all the female-oriented interactions I've had lately. The interpretations I've read about this encourage that I try having more awareness in this area and that's something I should definitely work on, the vagina monologue show I saw left me feeling like I had been ignoring and missing an entire integral part of my personality.
A repeated theme lately has been that I need to be more expressive and less inhibited. Birch representing less punishment or guilt is another recurring theme. The fact that the birch tree was inside of the clubhouse probably says a lot too, my feelings of guilt are in my relationships with women or in my feminine energy and the red lights are highlighting and warning me of this. Seeing the sewer grate might also be a reflection of this needing to clean up my thoughts of past relationships, etc. It's not that surprising that warnings are being represented about femininity, I was told several times when I learned some eastern theories about yin and yang during a Shiatsu workshop, it was stressed to me by the instructor how Yin I am. (of course he offered no advice on how i should correct this imbalance).
Overall, I feel like it would take all day for me to interpret every detail of this dream, it was so dense.

This dream is another one that jumps around. I still haven't taken the time to meditate and clear my head so that's probably why I keep having such sloppy dreams.
I remember being a student in some kind of English class and we were having a meeting in the grocery store. We were standing in an aisle and there was like a holographic computer screen behind the instructor. 2 people I knew were there, but I can't remember who, maybe my housemate Joe and my friend Keshia. The instructor was talking about something for a few minutes. Then I started to get really paranoid and worried that I had missed some assignments. So at the end of the class, I turned to someone else and said "have we had any papers to do lately?" and they said "yea we've been swamped". So I just thought about checking my grade and the holographic computer screen brought up my grades and I could see that weirdly enough, I had been present in class but I'd failed to write any of the assigned papers for the semester. That is unusual for me and I was excited to have gotten a 95% on a recent test, this computer was telling me I was 95% failing.
I guess the class split up and I was walking thru the grocery store and didn't really want anything so I think I walked back toward the 'class area' and I saw something on the holograph computer screen so I stood and watched it. There was a huge skeleton that must've been from a dinosaur because it was too huge to be a giraffe but the vertebrae looked like a giraffe's. The neck vertebrae were as big as gallons of water. It was a far away view and then it came closer and there was this scruffy looking guy actually climbing up the neck. He had on gloves and I think a harness and he pulled out one of the vertebrae and held it up to show it to the camera or something. I remember thinking that it was so big he might drop it holding it with one hand like that. I had a bad feeling about that guy, something about how he had stacked those bones up and climbed all over them just seemed disgraceful and the way he acted like he owned it just seemed wrong.
Suddenly... I was transported to the field where the skeleton was. It started out being dark night, there was snow everywhere and 3 tents were set up. One tent was full of girls, they had a lantern on and were being noisey/having fun. The second tent was about 10 yards away from the first and had the scruffy looking man in it, he yelled at the girls to be quiet and then they were quiet and the lantern went out and an older woman closed up the tent and ran over to the mans tent and let herself in. Before she closed the door flap, the man yelled out into the field at another tent set about another 10 yards away that was bigger than the other two and a group of small horses and one usually large horse ran into the tent. Then the biggest horse actually closed up the tent with this weird smirk in its eyes/on its face. It didn't move like a horse it wasn't smooth and coordinated it was choppy and unpredictable and human-like. Like it had been trained to be not like a horse at all.
It switched to morning somehow and the snow as gone. There were plowed fields instead and I could see the skeleton still around. Everything became confusing and messy at this point. Something weird happened and an arm reached up out of the ground. It was long and huge but it looked dried and withered up. The joint wasn't an angle anymore, it was just a bend and the arm swirled around, looking for something to grab. The arm didn't really look human, more like a super-villian or something from a movie. A younger man was walking around in the field, he seemed to move really quickly without really trying to. He ran up around a bank and grabbed the arm, he pulled the body out in a smooth series of movements, like he knew exactly what was buried and how to pull it out. He swung the arm over his shoulder, jumped, pulled and flipped the body out of the ground. The guy reminded me of Ike or superman or something like that.
Once the body was out the man dragged it around, it was alive, and obviously evil and it seemed to shrink up. The man told the body he didn't have to die, but he wouldn't be allowed to live the way he had, he wouldn't be allowed to be evil. Then the man smashed the body against a wall or a tree or something and left it there.
I started to walk away from the field and ended up in a house. It seemed like some kind of meeting place, there was an entrance and then rooms seperated by hallways at the same time it was like a cabin and also kind of suburban. I looked around and walked inside and just then I heard gunshots behind me. Someone had walked inside with me and I think they were shooting at him. I ran around the corner and someone behind me yelled someone's name. It was obviously the guy in front of me they were looking for based on his reaction. I saw an open closet and tried to run into it and hide. The other man tried to get in too but then turned around and put his arms up. I heard more gunshots and then the front door I could see in front of me was filled with bullet holes. They just kept shooting the door until it was practically see-through.
I thought they might leave me alone but then a man came around the corner of the closet and pointed a gun at me. He turned and said something to someone in the other room (someone he was with I guess). Then I woke up.
To see a skeleton in your dream represents something that is not fully developed. You may still in be the planning stages of some situation or project. Alternatively, a skeleton symbolizes death, transformation, or changes. You need to get to the bottom of some matter. The skeleton may also be a metaphor for "skeletons in your closet." Do you have something to hide?
To dream about yours or someone else's spine represents your support system, your strength, stamina and responsibilities. You need to keep your head high even in difficult times. Alternatively, the spine suggests that you need to stay true to your own convictions and be firm. The spine is symbolic of strength. The dream may be one of the contrary and thus suggests that you are "spineless."
To see bones in your dream represent the discovery of your personal, family, or cultural secrets. It is also symbolic of your underlying strengths that you have not yet recognized. Consider the symbolism of getting to the "bare bones" or the significance of "having a bone to pick with someone."
Based on these 3 interpretations I would have to say that the skeleton represents something that isn't full developed, discovery, tranisition, and my support system. I need to look for my hidden potentails, find ways to be strong, and how to make my transition like a rebirth? These are things I was actually thinking about last night. I dreampt about skeletons not very long ago, and I think the fact that I'm now dreaming of an even bigger skeleton and even having someone show me a vertebrae is saying I really need to pay attention to what this represents to me, because I didn't get it the first time.
To see freshly plowed fields in your dream signify growth, early rise to wealth and fortunate advancements to places of honor.
To see snow in your dream signifies your inhibitions, unexpressed emotions and feelings of frigidity. You need to release and express these emotions and inhibitions. Alternatively, snow means that you are feeling indifferent, alone and neglected
To see a horse in your dream symbolizes strength, power, endurance, virility and sexual prowess. It also represents a strong, physical energy. You need to tame the wild forces within. The dream may also be a pun that you are "horsing around".
To dream that you are in a tent indicates that you need a temporary change to your daily routine. You need to take time off and get away from the daily grind. Alternatively, the dream may mean instability and insecurity in your current situation. You do not want to settle down. Dreaming that you are in a tent, may be a pun on your "in-tent" or intentions.
These seemed really random at first but now I think I see the theme. I don't want to settle down, even in relationships I'm just horsing around, although these choices might make me feel lonely or neglected at times, it also seems to set the stage for growth, fortunate advancements and an early rise to wealth.
To dream that you are in a market represents some emotional or physical need that you are currently lacking in your life. You may be in need of nurturance and some fulfillment. Consider the specific items that you are shopping for. Alternatively, the market signifies frugality.
To see an barren market in your dream signifies depression and gloominess. There is a void in your life. If the market is large or well-stocked, then it means possibilities and choices.
To see a computer in your dream symbolizes technology, information, and modern life. New areas of opportunities are being opened to you
To see your grade in your dream represents how well you are doing in life's lesson and how your are progressing through each stage in your life. Consider the significance of the letter. Perhaps it refers to someone's initials.
To see a corpse in your dream represents an aspect of yourself that has died. Or it may mean that you are unexpressive. You have shut yourself down and are dead inside.
The market and computer both symbolize new oppurtunities and choices, which is what my life is all about lately. I didn't remember seeing or shopping for anything specific, in fact, I was disinterested in anything specific in the market, but it was a good atmosphere. The grade part of the dream really worries me. I thought I was doing well but when I checked it, I realized I had been missing out on important things all along the way. I should try to figure out what it is that I've been missing out on that's quietly making my subconscious think I'm a failure. The corpse being pulled out of the ground and then told it could live again, but only if it lives in a non-evil way is strange to me. What part of myself could I be telling to come back to life with restrictions?
To dream that you come in contact with the mafia indicates that you are experiencing some inner conflict and turmoil.
I wonder if there will ever be a time when I'm not experiencing inner conflict =P
So this dream has a lot of the same themes as other recent dreams. Transition is a huge one. Finding strength, bringing things out of the closet, shopping for opportunities, inner conflicts, growth, and intent. Also, the fear of new things or parts of myself that may intervene, horsing around, and questioning whether or not I'm doing as well as a I think I am. That's a lot to consider at one time which explains the dream's low cohesiveness. I think the only way to deal with everything going on in this dream is for me to slow down and really take time to set my priorities and figure out what I want and which oppurtunities I want to take from here. I need to clear out my doubts and face things that are threatening to bring me down.
Again, this dream has so much more meaning now that i come back to it. The bone to pick with someone, a corpse coming out from the ground again.
