Example: What does this dream mean?
I had this dream last night where I was going to my first elementary school's playground with all of my family members and all of my closest friends. Me and my parents got up onto the high up jungle gym and they turned me around and pushed me off of it. When I looked down there was a big ocean with alligators waiting to eat me. While I was falling, I saw some of the memories i've had throughout my life and then I got eaten.
What does this mean?
I may not understand what is required in an open question, but here is what I think your dream meant: This dream is clearly a dream of transformation. There are still vestiges of ancient rituals in which dramas very much like that of your dream were acted out. They celebrated the coming of age of a child. With certain so called primitive peoples such rituals are still strong today. There is one for girls that have begun to menstruate. This involves ritual (pretend) killing of the girl that is no more a girl, but a woman able to bear children. The ritual will always take place with all the women of the clan involved.
Interesting is to see that some fairy stories hark back to such rituals. Red Ridinghood is one of them. There the little girl who had brought cakes to granny was swallowed by the wolf. It was a wolf because the ritual that inspired this story was happening in a land where there were wolves. The swallowing of the girl meant that she was dying to her childhood and that she would emerge from the wolf’s belly as a menstruating woman which is signalled by the red hood. In Egypt such transformations took place inside a crocodile with the same result.
Your own dream ritual is closely associated with the ancient Egyptian one which may be because you live in a country where crocodiles figure strongly in people’s mind or that crocs for you inspire fear. Fear is actually part of this ritual for no one likes to die, not even to childhood.
The whole dream is a modern scenario for such a transformation. It takes you back to your primary school to show you clearly that the passing of childhood is a stake.
What I find extraordinarily interesting is that the centre of the ritual is the JUNGLE gym. Even though this steel structure of this play ground equipment is as far removed from the jungle as can be, its name nevertheless takes you back to a time of a totally natural and unspoilt life. That it has to end is shown in a rather uncompromising manner by TURNING you around and then pushing you off. The very phrasing your dream employs shows that you have reached a point in life where there is a TURNING POINT.
Since we all resist growing up and fear the impending responsibilities the dream has to resort to force which is exercised by your parents which in the ancient rituals were the elders of the tribe. They symbolise the relentless onwards march of life. It stops for no one and in that regard your parents represent the innate aging process of life.
The OCEAN below is an icon for the beginning of life. As you may know Darwin said that life began in the ocean as a tiny amoeba. What Darwin said was of course only a projection of what is happening in the human context. Our women carry the water of life or the amniotic fluid where we first swim as fishlike creatures. Since you have already been born the falling into the ocean signals a kind of REBIRTH, which in your case may well be 'being born' into a grown up woman replacing the child.
What I found utterly astonishing is the surfacing of childhood memories while you were falling. This is actually something that does happen to some people when they are in the grips of the fear of death. Some say that their whole life had rewound itself in fine details. Thus for you this ritual dying has been made quite realistic, but then some rituals among unspoilt peoples like the Aborigines of Australia were not short of real bloodletting.
These people for instance had a common initiation ritual where a young boy was ritually killed before he was made to a medicine man. In this ritual certain incisions into his body were made and then after a time he was declared to be dead. The women would weep as if they had actually lost one of their tribal members. And like in Red Ridinghood such a boy would then be kept in a dark cave that was the belly of a giant serpent where he was reborn to the status of a fully qualified medicine of whom it was said, after he had emerged from the darkness, that he no longer had to walk but now could fly from place to place.

Example: ?Dream meaning?
I'm an 18 year old female,my crush(35) man came back to work at my school,he replaces other security men temporarily. On the first day,he searches for me because I'm not in the lockers(mine is far away from the bigger ones)it's in another area. And when he finds me,we talk and I wrap my legs around his waist and he caresses me really tightly and we kiss passionately. So what does this dream mean? He used to work before at my school. And his job is to replace people who get hurt and so. He once grabbed me by my rear arm and took me away when I was talking to another guy. Is this jealousy?He attracts a lot of women of his age(I can tell cause they all flirt with him)but his behavior is different with me. He is a gentleman. He would do anything for my attention. He once looked at me and when I looked at him,he quickly looked away. Why? Does he like me or so? He can easily get women of his age. He once asked me what I do after school. He looked at me a lot. Trying to get my attention. Explain the dream. Please and the situation. I don't have a problem with age and love doesn't have an age, so don't give me that age gap crap. We both are open minded. He used to talk to everybody,like the girl we call sluts at school. And his behavior would be different with me.
Example: What does my dreams mean?
Okay, I have two dreams that I don't understand. The first one is: We r on a class field trip at this lake or swamp. Something happened to the teacher. I dont know what but he/she was not in my dream. The class split up and they all went into the water and swam through the forest since that was the only way to go. I had a choice to either go in the car that will slowly sink to the bottom and we'll open the doors and swim deep underwater. The other choice was to go with a group of ppl I know and swim through the forest like the rest of the class. I choose the car, but as we were sinking, I chickened out and opened the door and left. I ran back and I saw that the group I could have gone with left! I sat at the dock and cried yelling if someone can help me. Then the guy I use to like and have no feelings for him at all, yelled "Over here". I ignored him and pretended I couldn't see him. Then my friend came and she pushed me in the lake just to be funny. It was hard for me to swim but I'm usually a great swimmer; just that in the dream I was struggling and I had the life jacket on! I swam to the guy and we just stayed there and waited. Just the three of us in the dark swamp or whatever u want to call it. What does this dream mean? To have your class leave you behind, chicken out, a guy u dont like at all help u, and u, ur friend, and a guy u use to like just wait. What does it mean?
The next dream is pretty simple. I was some stranger. Not me, but some person I didn't even know and all the people I hated or were mean just died one after another. They all died the same way though but at diffferent periods. They all got ran over by a train. What does it mean to have random people you don't know all die at a different time but have the same cause of death?
Example: Flying Dream meaning?
I had a very vivid dream about flying. I wrote out the whole thing in a blog, if someone could pleas take the time to read it I would really appreciate it. I would love to know what it meant.
I was waiting in line at the post office and did something to these men that made them go crazy. I was abusing them mentally. I flew out the window to avoid them trying to hurt me but somehow they pinned me down. One had me by the neck and I looked behind me and one was sucking on my foot.
The next thing I know I was able to get away from them and fly over the city. But it wasn’t LA. I flew for hours. Going in and out of buildings. Parties. Orgies. Festivals. Seeing people I knew (all real people I know. Except for the strange men) Still on the run from these men. They trapped me finally. I was in a warehouse high above them. But the windows were all closed. That’s how I would escape…through the windows. All the open ones lead back into the building. I broke through one to escape. Then once I was out one of them could fly and I saw him on top of one of my buildings. I was so much faster and used to flying I got away.
Then someone called me…while I was flying. I picked up haha! It was my ex. I was now above a city with police helicopters rs and sky scrapers. They were looking for someone in the city. Someone bad. Not me. But I was afraid they would see my flying. I got sloppy. I couldn’t fly as well. Well I couldn’t land.
The man grabbed my foot. All hope was lost. I woke up. Heart POUNDING. Windows WIDE open. Where did I go?
Yeah...My whole dream in a ?.
Example: Whats this dream mean?

Example: Elevator dream meaning?
For two nights now I've had this dream that I am in a fancy hotel and I am getting into an elevator with my two dogs and one of my friends. Just as I'm about to push the button to go up I realize my friend walked off the elevator so I call out her name waiting for her as the doors keep trying to close to go up and then one of my dogs tries to jump out and I'm still just trying to keep the elevator from closing and going up. Eventually I get off, someone tells me my friend is in the restroom. I finally see here and we all get into the elevator with me annoyed and then I wake up. What is the meaning of this dream? Thanks for any input.
Example: What could my dream mean? ?
i need to give you a little background about the people in my dream..
(i changed everyone's names)
i am a girl, anna is my best friend, who is becoming good friends with another one of my long-time friends carrie. i'm worried because i'm afraid they will become best friends and anna will leave me. they already spent almost every weekend together, while i have to sit back and watch. next, colin was my best boy - friend (not boyfriend) for over a year, and suddenly he told me he liked me and asked me out, but i told him i felt like we'd be better just staying best friends, so he decided he didn't want to speak to me anymore, and he said, quote "i don't want to be friends with you anymore." i haven't spoken to him in over a month, and i cry almost every day, but i try to act tough and happy because i don't want him to see how much he hurt me. also, during the past summer, colin and anna had a thing, and i got really jealous. anna always acted like she owned colin, and colin never stopped talking about anna. i can't help but love them both though, although sometimes they act like they like each other so much better than me, so i constantly feel left out. (anna and colin still talk every day, call each other, and hang out, even though anna knows exactly what colin did and said to me)
alright, so now my dream:
me, anna and carrie were walking back from the city pool one day at lunch time. it was a REALLY hot day, so anna decided she was going to stop at colin's house (which we were passing) to ask him for a drink. i started yelling and was like NO YOU CAN'T GO, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? anna rolled her eyes at me and said in a really rude tone "whatever, you can wait outside or something." so her and carrie go into his house, and for some reason i followed them upstairs to his room, except before following them into his room, he slammed the door in my face. i stood outside his door and leaned against the wall to wait for them. i heard them laughing in the room, and for some reason i knew it was about me. about a minute later, he opened the door, but slammed it again. then in another 10 seconds he opened it, and slammed it once again. this went on for another 3 or so minutes, each time i would hear them break into a fit of laughter. this next time, he opened it, and looked at me, not saying anything. i stared at him and i was unable to look away, no matter hard i tried. then, he walked forward and put out his arms like he wanted to hug me. i had the biggest urge to run at him and hug him, the hugest temptation, like i have never wanted this so badly, but i turned away and started walking down the hall. i heard him call my name, and then he ran after me. he kept yelling COME ON, but i would just yell back things like LEAVE IT ALONE or STOP IT. he followed me down the stairs. when i got to the bottom, i turned around and he was standing on the stairs staring at me. out of no where, i started screaming at the top of my lungs, i was yelling things i have been wanting to yell at him since that day he told me he didn't want to be friends with me anymore. he began to cry, and i just yelled even louder. i started walking up the stairs towards him, and i backed him into a corner. i was yelling as loud as i could, things like "you're a selfish jerk, you don't care how i feel, you couldn't find any other way to deal with it so you decided to push me out of your life, and now you want to go back to the way things were" etc.. tears were streaming down my face but i couldn't stop yelling. then, he pushed past me, and i fell down the stairs. he ran past me and out his bottom garage door. i stood up and ran after him, but then i stopped in the door way, because i told myself not to follow him. i looked up, and we had somehow ended up in a huge flat desert, where you could see for miles and miles and there was not one thing surrounding us, just a huge flat surface of sand. i watched him run for at least 10 minutes, but he didn't seem to be going anywhere. i didn't run after him or call for him, i just watched him desperately trying to run away, but failing.
does anyone know what this might mean?
i'm sorry it's so long!
