    Question Dream Interpretations

    This thread is for members to discuss dreams they have had, and possible meanings for them.

    If you think dreams mean nothing, please explain why.

    I had an intense nightmare last night and it got me thinking - what does it mean? Is something bad about to happen? Let me know what you think. Also, if you're having your own crazy dreams, post them here!

    My dream:
    I was in the forest, with a friend and a girl I had just met (in my dream). There was a white bear (not a polar bear - although it may have been a young one) chasing a small orange dog. The dog wasn't afraid, but interested in the bear and I was concerned that the bear would kill the dog, but they just played.

    Then the bear turned on me and the girl I had just met. We climbed up these skinny trees to escape the bear, but it started climbing up the girl's tree. She climbed across into my tree, and the weight of both of us made the tree sway. We were very high up. She falls from the tree to the ground. I can't tell if she was ok. I realise if I don't get down I will also fall, and so I try to climb back down. At this point I am more worried about falling than the bear. The tree is swaying so much that I can't climb down. And I wake up!

    (I was sweating - that never happens to me! And my heart was racing. It was like it was all real)

    So... you're interpretations please!

    I get nightmares like this when I am worried about something like an upcoming appointment/meeting or sometimes if there is something I am putting off thinking about, but that is worrying me.

    I think dream interpretations are very personal for each individual. If this were my dream, and it was really bothering me and nagging me as to the meaning behind it, I would do a free association with the components of the dream. Such as, what comes to mind when I think of a tree? What comes to mind when I think of a bear? A dog? The color white? The color orange, etc.? And while you're writing that down, write down any associated feelings. I think that often times, a dream is just a dream, and other times your unconscious is trying to bring something into your awareness. Maybe a fear of something? An anxiety around something? Really depends on you, and who knows, maybe when doing this free association, you'll have a real "ah-ha" moment and you will understand it. (Of course these are nothing more than my opinions. )

    If it were my dream, I agree with Lausco, that I'd right away assume I was anxious/worried/fearful over something in my life. Maybe over changes/decisions I had made that made me feel nervous, uncertain, or frightened. Then I'd do the free association to see what comes up. Maybe nothing. But it's something you could try. Good luck with it!

    As far as dream I had... (edited to keep it a bit shorter than the actual dream)

    I'm in my apartment lying in bed...I suddenly wake [in my dream] and feel a presence in my room. I am immediately frightened as I should be a lone. I turn my head slightly and see a cloaked figure [think of the Grim Reaper, as that's what he looked like] standing over me, with his hood on and I can tell he's looking down at me, though I cannot see his face. I'm paralyzed with fear and all these things are running through my head as to how to escape him. I very slowly pull my covers up to my chin like a frightened child. Then I think that maybe if I hide under the covers completely, he won't know I'm there. I know [still in my dream] that he already knows I'm there, but I'm desperate to get away. It is about that time that I wake myself up moaning/crying out [in reality]. I always wake myself in that same manner. Once, it was my own whining that woke me, and before I was fully awake, I thought I had a frightened puppy in my apartment - but it was me.

    This has been a reocurring dream for me. I have had it many times over the past 10 years or so. However, thankfully, I've not had it since I have moved to where I live now. So, about 2 years without it. Thank goodness. I also took a dream interpretation class, and worked with that dream a lot during that semester. Never did figure it out exactly. Except for the obvious - I'm terrified of death. But something nags at me that there is more to it than that...

    @Dark Tree....That's also a frightening dream!!!!

    Hi EscapeGirl, have you thought about the possibility that this hooded figure might no necessarily be death/grim reaper?

    Can you see the persons face? It appears not. Things that are black and mysterious like that, which make you scared and frightened, it suggests that you are worrying about the unknown. Of course, death comes into that. But I wouldn't be surprised if you experience that dream everytime you're going through a time where you aren't sure about the future or having to make big decisions....

    ....the other concept to think about is that you might feel isolated and alone in your trials. Is there anyone else in bed with you? No sounds from outside your room of people in the house? No. It could be your subconciousness portraying your fear of being stressed and intimidated...

    You're right though. Dreams are very personal. I could be completely wrong in my interpretation as I don't know how you were feeling or your circumstances at the times you had the dream.

    Here's one I had while I was still pregnant...

    I'm walking along a beach rubbing my pregnant belly. I'm with my husband and my sisters. I see a large cliff ahead, with giant jagged rocks on the edge. I see a young boy (about the age of 6) he has dark hair and I can't see his face. He runs along the sea water and I notice that there are sharks in the water....I chase the boy and try to reach him and save him from the sharks....then he starts to climb the rocks and stumbles along the cliff face. I scramble up after him desperately calling out to him, praying he wont get hurt. I had the feeling that it was my son and I had to save him. My husband and my sisters were at the bottom of the beach, silently watching me climb up after my boy. He disappears at the top, I finally get to the top too and he's nowhere to be seen.....

    ....then I look down and noticed my pregnant belly has gone.

    *gave me chills!*

    @ Escape Girl: I'm not sure that even though you associate the grim reeper with death that thats what the figure represents. In tarot, 'death' refers to change; the death of the old and beginning of something new. It could be anything 'dying' like a situation, or a relationship, or an opportunity etc, it is not necessarily you.

    I agree that the darkness may symbolise the unknown or a stranger. But then, often 'Death' is depicted without a face. And also death IS the unknown. If you were a bit of a control freak I would say you are terrified because death is out of our control, and we don't know what's on the other side, if anything.

    I think the fact that the figure is focussed on you is very important. You can't escape. (Escapegirl lol )

    This one has me puzzled. I think the ocean, the boy and the fact you are trying to save him are the key points. I would go to Genghis's site and see what they typically represent. (That's what I'm about to do with mine, although I do believe that the representations are things that will signify something specific to the dreamer)

    It's strange that your husband and sisters don't help you save the boy. It's like they realise by looking in from the outside the situation is futile and the boy will come back if he wants to. You are the only one who thinks you can do something about it. Whether you're right, or they're right... who knows?

    I hope I'm actually helping! Thank you for the comments (Escape/Lausco) about mine, I'm still working it out. Went to Dream Moods website (thanks Genghis) and this is what I got:
    Polar bear = Reawakening (this makes complete sense to me, I have just got out of a very long relationship, so my life has begun again!)
    Dog = Protection, Loyalty and Fidelity
    (The point that they were fighting/playing might be significant?)
    Tree Climbing = "To dream that you are climbing a tree, signifies that you will achieve your career goals and reach those high places in society. The degree of difficulty to which you climb the tree will measure the speed of your achievement of these goals." (Dream Moods)
    Not convinced about the tree part though...

    another one i was climbing up the tallest diving board ever i got to the top adn looked out over hundreds of pools then i jumpped i fell for a few minutes just falling and falling then i hit the ground head first on the concrete a foot away from the pool i thought i was about to die but i just stood up and walked off like nothing happened \
