This dream was really weird but I wrote everything down in my dream journal once I awoke so I remember a lot of little details.
In the beginning of my dream I was bathing in the ocean. It was night but a very bright night with lots of moonlight and glittering silver stars. There was a huge full moon overhead. I could hear the sound of pretty chines in the air. Flamingos were flying over the ocean and the ocean was filled with frogs. I was watching a duck and drake swimming together in ocean when I spotted a mermaid and I was pleasantly surprised because I had never seen one before. We swam together before I was startled by the sound of cymbals crashing and I saw my fiancé, Arvind. He swam out and we made love in the ocean. I noticed his eyes were darker and he smelled of allspice. Then we went onto land. I felt very affectionate towards him so I caught a gander that was in the ocean and gave it to him as a present. He was so pleased he gave me three presents: bouquets of gardenia, forsythia, forget me nots, daffodils, acacia, lavender, jasmine, honeysuckle, nightshade, lotus, and lilies of the valley, four cards (ace, king, queen and jack of hearts) and a cone-shaped aquamarine and ruby amulet.
Then I started talking about how I had to do my Christmas shopping because it was Christmas day. We walked into town bare foot in the dew and went to an antique store that looked really quaint and old-fashioned. There were pigeons on the windowsill outside. I was looking at antiques and finally purchased some oil. Arvind then said that because I bought oil we had to marry and we rode on a donkey to some wedding banquet.
The banquet was held in a beautiful cemetery. There was a long table with a feast prepared. Two canaries were in a cage on the table as a centerpiece. Incense was lit, a harp and organ were playing. Nightingales were in trees. There was an outdoor fireplace burning. Arvind was dressed as a knight. I was dressed in an ivory, lace wedding dress, the amulet and was barefoot still. We were eating celery, avocado, cake, apricot, dates, chestnuts, olives, ripe cherries, ginger, honey, jam, lamb, pumpkin, maple sugar, oysters, pickles, strawberries, and ice cream sodas. We were eating off good china and drank wine and a sweet, syrupy drink from Crystal goblets. Our wedding guests were elk and fairies. A barmaid approached me and said about Arvind, “he’s the one”. Then one of the waiters served a dead deer and I was disgusted and insisted he removed the dead deer.
A unicorn came on the scene and roared like a lion and then turned into a palm tree. A lunar eclipse took place and it became very dark. In the tree was my abusive ex-husband dressed as a ship captain in black nylon. He was sitting in the pal tree with three snakes, an adder, a python and a rattlesnake around his neck and a crow was on his shoulder. Caterpillars and lizards were at feet of the tree. He offered me a bouquet of opium poppies and primroses as a wedding gift and I rejected it. He came down off the tree and an alligator, fox, leopard and snarling dog came to his side. He went into a jealous rage telling me I should have been his wife and I was crazy not to and he took me to an asylum. Arvind chased us down and turned into a polar bear and Nikolas turned into a black bear and began to fight. I put on a white velvet cloak with a garland of garlic around my neck and Arvind gave me a blade and I found Nikolas-bear and killed him. After he died all his animal companions died and it became light again. A rainbow appeared and doves were flying overhead. Then we cooked the Nikolas-bear corpse and went back to our wedding banquet and ate that too.
Then I awoke
This is a very intense and detailed dream. There are so many animals in it that I really don't want to go through EACH of them symbolically. I will mention ones that help the overall theme. There is a really good book you may want to get called "Animal-Speak" by Ted Andrews. Then you can look up each one.
I don't know if you are going to like my interpretation, but here goes:
Here, you are awash in the whole idea that your current relationship is a dream come true. Everything good springs from it: he is treating you well now as symbolized by the gifts he gives you, and the gifts you give him. However, opening symbols in the dream refer to your subconscious and the fact that you may be deluding yourself a bit. The moon is the symbol of deceit; there may be some self denial here about how good it really is: you are awash in the moonlight and everything is silver stars (they are not golden, though, and will tarnish easily!).
Night is also a reference to this denial. Bathing yourself in the ocean is cleansing; you use this new relationship to cleanse the past. Frogs are also a symbol of cleansing. Pigeons, however, are crappy little birds, and as the relationship progresses, you are going to get into the everyday crap with Arvind.
Deer are a symbol of gentleness: the dead deer is a warning that while there is calm right now in your current relationship, you must be on guard.
Your old, abusive ex hubby shows up as captain of the ship - does he still have a hold on you in some ways? Why is he driving the ship? He is in black, no doubt, because to you he is a villain. This is why he brings with him predatory animals, like the alligator, fox, leopard, and snarling dog.
Was he an addict? He offers you opium poppies - how interesting. Primrose to me represented false promises or false making up. You dress is white velvet, because to you, you are the pure one. He could not have shown up like this in the dream if you were completely over his hold on you. You don't love him, but he still has a hold on you.
I would say the theme of this dream is the "flamingos flying over the ocean": you are fantacizing your new relationship to get over the old, abusive one, but watch out, because pigeons come into play and that lets me know, you must not fantacize anything. The unicorn should let you know this, too. It roars like a lion. Fantasy, if left unchecked, will leave you open to being blindsided by the reality. Best to keep grounded and look at Arvind as man, not a savior.
I have dreams once in awhile that concern these animals that i've never seen. In particular, ive dreamnt of this creature that has the upperbody of a snake/lizard, but has the lower body of a bird. Usually the lower body is this a bright color like yellow or red. Sometimes they are small, and sometimes they are huge. I had a dream that two of these creatures were walking around a house that was suppose to be mine in the dream. And when i found them, i returned them to their bird cage in my basement. These creatures are never aggressive in my dreams, but rather docile. Any clue to what that symbolize? please, no dream moods.
I have two cats,s guinea pig,and a parakeet
Example: What could this dream mean...? ?
I visited the USA in 2003 stayed about 7weeks ,dreamed one night about this lone eagle who was soaring so high above canyons below. He/she looked so graceful and free .
Now its 2009 and Im back again ,this time to live and I was wondering if that dream was a good omen or not?...guess Im asking that because Im not American...
most of the dream was in a house with some people and its not clear to me now, but like, the middle part of my dream is still vivid to me now and it was the most amazing thing ive ever seen/thought/whatever.
i was driving in my car and i came to this hill, the hill was covered in what i assume was white feathers, the road, and all the hill was covered and everything was very white. the hill was extremely steep, and my car seemed to be sliding up rather than driving. also there were trees that were the same as the ground, with seeming like white feathers. and the most amazing thing was these giant white owls flying passed me, and some flying near me and landing. a few of them seemed to be part of the tree at first but then they flew off and passed me. i got really close to one and i thought "i gotta come back here and get a polaroid of one of these" -the giant owls. so it was a giant steep hill with white feathers everywhere and in the trees and giant owls coming from the trees and also just flying by. and the sky was like orange and pink above the hill. the owls bodies didnt look like youd think, it was as if they had more fluff/feathers than actual bulk/skin/shape. like hollow maybe with holes, like made out of feathers only.
and then i went over the top of the hill and did a slow motion ramp and the dream continued for a bit but changed directions and isnt as clear either.
help me out experts.
I had a dream that my teacher bought me a 7-dollar hat that was for a good cause. I didn't have money and he asked me if I wanted one. It was a tweety hat. He kept the receipt so that it could remind him that I needed to pay him $7 back. Is this just a random dream?
Do hats have a meaning?
Example: Reoccurring dream?
This is kinda weird but I used to have 2 birds and I gave them away to this girl on Craigslist. Ever since I have kept on having dreams of me walking into my room and the birds are starving and have no food or water and I freak out and throw cups of bird seed in the cage and that's it. Every once in awhile when I'm awake for a quick second I freak out because I haven't fed my bird today, but I haven't had them for the past 6 months. Is there any explanation to this?
Example: Weird Dreams?
Let me start off by saying that I am a Buddhist, as well as a pacifist, who would never think of harming anyone or anything.
For a few months now, I've been having dreams about shapeshifting- mainly into a wolf but sometimes into a bird. Then the other night, the dream starts off as normal- i'm running from 'something' and then shift into a wolf. I can feel the change, but it doesnt hurt. Then, I'm in the woods, running, like I usually am, but this time, i smell a deer, and run with it for a while. Suddenly, I pounce and rip it's throat open. The scary thing is that the dream seems so real- I can taste the blood and feel it on my face, along w/my heart pounding and the scents and sounds.
I was talking to my mother today and she brought up how she dreamed about me and my brother while she was in the final stages of pregnancy. for me the dream was of her sitting down naked with her back to herself so all you could see was her back. she had a tatoo of the american flag and a bald eagle on her back. I was wondering if this ment i could have possibly been a solider in a past life or that i may end up to be a solider later in life. I've also always felt that i may have been a solider in WW2 in europe and i never felt any connection to the war in the pacific. Could anyone tell me what they think this means or explain any similiar experiences they've had. thanks!
I know how nobody really likes to take the time to read really long, detailed questions, but I have one just for you.
It started when I got into this one anime/manga called Katekyo Hitman Reborn! where I immediately called the antagonist, Rokudo Mukuro, my favorite character. I later heard spoilers about the manga that he had a connection where he turns into a white owl at one point. I found my way up to that point in the manga, and had a dream days later that I found familiar to that scene.
In my dream, I was kneeling on a forest floor holding a white owl in my arms. I heard a masculine voice say something endearing, and then the owl kissed me on the cheek with human-like sound. I woke up.
After that, I kept finding all of these things related to owls chasing me around! It pulled the last straw when I took a quiz today on Facebook that told which animal I was, and I got an owl. This freaks me out a tad bit, and I'm wondering: Am I going insane, or is someone (or something!) trying to tell me something that really requires my attention?!
