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.

The dream started off with my mom freaking out about my sister being missing and I somehow knew where she was (twin telepathy) the somehow I’m ignoring her and end up going to my next next door neighbors house in this supper hot outfit and I’m talking to this girl but I didn’t see her face and while I’m talking to her I notice that there’s this dude starring at me by the corner. He had black hair and blue eyes and he was a delinquent. Somehow I end up going somewhere and end up back at that party and my mom is there in her night gown. Also I’m with my lost sister right now and my mom says what are we doing her and I walk up and kiss the black hair blue eyed guy and say to my mom this is what I’m doing here then my mom drags us out then that boy leaves I guess embarrassed and I fallen him and it turn out that he live in the trailer park right next to my house and I fallen him and I ask him if I’ll ever see him again and he just like hugs me and goes throw his fone and says put your number in and so I do but I forget my cell phone at home so he can’t put his number in. then the next day I see this little girl in the street looking lost so I offer to take her home and she lives in the trailer park to and somehow the park is having like a second Halloween and like it’s really all spooky and then the black hair blue eyed boy scares me and says take care of my little sister then cuts across this field and then I go fake trick or treating with the girl and nobody would give me any candy because they said they didn’t know me and at the ended of the dream I end up stealing a yogurt and then I woke up also I don’t even know who the guy is in this dream was I only knew my mom n sister in this dream so this dream was really weird can anyone tell me what this dream means?

I'm not going to delude myself into believing I won't get any ignorant or disgusting answers, but please, try to restrain yourselves.
I had an incest dream about my sister. I was just wondering what this meant because I know it's not my subconscious telling me I have the hots for my sister.
My friend mentioned to me that family is really the only people you can trust, which got me to thinking. Is the dream simply my subconscious expressing my need to be with someone whom I trust? I've always had trust issues and constantly worry about whether or not my boyfriend is being faithful, so it makes sense.

I was coming home from work ( Im still a child with no work )And I went on the elevator to my hotel that I live in.I lived on the sixth floor.You couldnt enter any door on the sixth floor because it was locked.So I went back down with 2 other residents on the elevator to the lobby.There was a child near the buttons who stared at us for a while then pulled out a yellow piece of paper. He wrote down an "x" and told us, " You will be conquered and eliminated, good luck" We exit the elevator, and we see a bunch of people. I hear the boss yelling ,ADULTS WILL BE HANGED, CHILDREN WILL BE BURNED, AND ELDERS WILL BE THROWN OVER A CLIFF. I just woke up from that dream. Whats wrong with me?

I'm a Cree Native from The Pas, Manitoba, canada
I believe in my culture and what the elders have to say about dreams, the past, and beliefs. I believe in the afterlife, and how our elders will come and let us know if there is something wrong, or just contact us to let us know their at piece where they are. Now this dream I had made me at peace knowing my grandmother is happy, but it's also bothering me cause it brought up some weird things in it.
I was somewhere where I have never been before it was beautiful there, air smelled so clean, and there was so many beautiful colors, it was so calm, the trees where so green, same with the grass, didn't look polluted at all. I walked up these weird stairs, I was in a really nice house, I entered a bedroom, and my grandmother was laying in a bed. I scanned the room, and there was a wall behind the bed, and half walls on the side, but the other half of the walls where made of a gold lattice, with really nice designs, and where I entered the room, the door was the same way, it was a gold gate. I then asked my grandmother way she was still in bed..she replied"that I;m still healing...I was like ok, so I sat down on the bed with her, and we just started talking back and forth, about my husband, kids. Then she asked me what she wore at her funeral. I replied, well uncle Ron dressed you in these ugly white jeans, and a nasty looking purple blouse..and then she made this funny face, like she used too, and said, I would have liked you to pick it out, I loved shopping with you cause you would pick out and dress me in these nice cloths, and tell me that even though I'm a grandma, great grandma, that I don't need to dress like one...and we both laughed about it. Then all of a sudden my auntie Susan walked in the room, and she was hanging pictures and putting plants out and stuff, I asked what she was doing here, and my grandma replied...that she was decorating for her. I asked what do you mean decorating, she said yes, this is my room. I then heard kids playing, so I left the room to go see, they where all playing games and stuff, so then I returned to the room with my grandma, a kid followed me into the room, and asked my grandma why she has this pillow still stuffed in the front of her shirt, my grandma replies cause I'm still healing, the kids then pulls the pillow out and throws it away and says, I like you better without it, and then runs out of the room. I heard people, so I asked who they where, my grandma replied, that they where my ancestors, and that they are all with her now, and I stated I didn't know any of them, and she said they where all my family, and went on to tell my that they are in a great place altogether, and that they heal where they are, and after they heal, then they are able to walk, run, play, and so forth. Then my buzzer went off and I woke up.
I don't usually remember my dreams, but this one is really bothering me, I keep thinking about it. My grandma who I was really close too, and raised me since I was a 3 yrs old on, passed away
May 2011, she was very ill, and a week before she passed, my husband and I where visiting her at the hospital, and she told us, that she was ready to go, and that I need to tell uncle Ron to sign the papers, to take her off all the machines, and I said he won't listen to any of us, you need to tell him to stop being selfish, and let you go.
So a week later, he did it, and I sat with her til she passed on, and I can tell she was happy, cause I was holding her hand, and when it was time, she opened her eyes, smiled at me, squeezed my hand and took her last breath. It was the hardest thing I had ever done in my life, but it was worth spending those last moments with her. Also we had her cremated and her ashes sit in our living room with a angel that the kids and I gave her when she was in the hospital to watch over her.
I been playing this dream out over and over, and I keep coming to conclusions that my grandma was telling me that she is resting in a great place and is happier then ever, and she was letting me know, everything is fine. But I don't get why my auntie Susan was there, cause she is still living, if it's a sign that she is going to be next to go, and that she was there cause my grandma was letting me know that she was going to be with her soon. I'm not sure, just bothers me now. I asked this elder native lady I babysit for, and she told me that on her land, and what the elders say, that it means something bad is going to happen in my family, not in my family, like husband and kids, or myself, but within the family. She said it's a bad sign, when people within your dream talk to each other, like my grandma and I did, She said usually we are there, but where just watchers. like I said this is bothering me so much,
If anyone has any suggestions or comments please give them.

I'd love some analysis of this dream; I have many like this.
I dreamed that I was walking in a beautiful Gothic-type building; supposedly, it was a school, but I saw no other pupils and I was walking on a raised bridge structure- it did not appear to be a pathway. There were gold chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, and it entire inside of the building was illuminated with a diffuse golden/beige glow. It was entirely dark outside; the glass windows were black. Then the pathway arched into a room that brought to mind a mausoleum; there was a great domed ceiling. The floor was dark blue and concrete; it looked like the sky. There were taxidermied animal heads on the walls, and I jumped in surprise when one of the heads (a large brown moose head) turned to me and spoke. It asked me a question, but I don't remember what it was, only that it reverberated with me. I answered it, and it told me to look at something, so I turned to see at another preserved animal near me. It was a gray bird mounted on an artificial nest, and its feathers were rustling in a non-existent breeze. It had no head.
Thanks in advance!

Example: What does my dream mean?
Okay last night i had a super strange dream and I wasn't sure if it had a hidden meaning or not. Here it is:
I was at school, although it looked similar to the one I go to it was slightly different, and I remember asking the humanities teachers if they'd seen my parents. One of the history teachers said yes, my mum had just given birth. I remember I was really frustrated at this as I didn't know she with child and then to be told by a teacher instead of by them left me feeling rejected. I was then at home watching youtube on my iPod whilst they were asleep, before realizing I needed the loo, however when I went into the bathroom the toilet had shrunk and the toilet seat had been cut in half. For some reason I had taken my iPod and my brothers iPad with me. I heard my dad telling my mum they were taking them off us so I hid them down my trousers.
Next I was a cafe with my mum, grandma and brother and I got covered in sewage. I know that there was more to this part but I can't remember what.
Next we were at a farm and I was told I had to save the earth in 7 minutes by getting this plant away from the tiger. I managed to do this so earth was saved. At the same time my brother had managed to release the sheep on accident and also a brown and black dachshund with her two puppies. I went after the dogs and managed to rescue them. I was able to communicate with the dachshund, so I told her I'd carry one of the pups so she only had to make the trip to safety once. Safety turned out to be under my neighbor's shed.
The next thing I remember is being in a flat with a guy who looked like the character Barry Barry off Waterloo Rd. We were in his room which was empty except for a bookshelf with books and cd's on it. He was in his en-suite and I was told by friends to pick a cd up and leave. He came out the en-suite before I could leave but he wasn't too fussed by the fact I was in his room. He then got his jeans on and helped me pick a cd. But before I could leave we heard the voices of Chalky (another character of Waterloo Rd) and my parents, so we hid round the corner as I wasn't supposed to be with him. I was sat on his lap as there wasn't much space and we were below a window. We looked out the window to see what was happening and the view was the same as the view from my brothers room (I didn't know this in my dream but it was). When we sat back down I was naked so I had to put my bra and pants back on, I was just about to get my clothes back on when Chalky's voice was right outside the door so I hopped back on the guys lap. Chalky and my parents came in and thought we were about to have sex (we weren't) and despite all our protests otherwise they didn't believe us. *I woke up*
-My mum is not pregnant
-My grandad owns a sheep farm and has a male brown and black dachshund
-Barry Barry is one of my favorite characters on Waterloo Rd, and I do kinda like him
-I've never had sex or a boyfriend or been alone in a room with a guy my age.
-The room I was in with the guy had two beds, one red and one blue
-Although I don't think in the dream the guy was my boyfriend, I felt safe with him, flirted with him and also wasn't bothered by the fact he saw me naked.
-In the dream I was slimmer than I am in reality, but not much slimmer.
