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.

Can someone help me on my weird dreams.Or can you show me links to websites where i can ask about them..I wanna know if my dreams has something to do with what i will experience or experiencing now.
Please say something about any of them.they are threee and i can only recall some scenes and some symbols that stands out
1. In my first dream i was with my mother.We are walking inside a memorial park (cemetery).We were both holding our own umbrellas since it was raining.It was just a light rain.We noticed that each coffins had cross and in each cross each has books above.I don't know the contents but when i was about to read one a weird and almost scary looking guy stops us and say that we should leave cause something strange might happen.We were not scared coz i can see we were still both smiling but we decided to leave..On our way out two young guys were following us.We stopped for a moment and i turn to face my mom .We were talking but i can't really remember what.And that's how my first dream ends
2.In my second dream i was with a guy who was supposed to be my boyfriend there (though i never had a boyfriend).We were both under an umbrella coz it is raining very hard.I think i got angry at him so i leave him.We were in a school btw which i think was my schoool in elementary.I went near the classrooms so i will not get wet but i stopped coz i see a flood ahead of me.The only way for me not to be in the flood is to go back and go to the other side.I hesitated at first since i saw him going back but he's on the other side.In the end i go back to where i've been and he just passed me.I was hurt i think but i saw him leaving the umbrella for me.I picked the umbrella and the end of the scene...
Also in this dream idk why but our classroom (my bf and i) was on the ground floor but as my dream goes on i realized were on the second floor with a shopping mall on the front of our room (weird right).We were not talking to each other which really bothers me but when i try to speak to him.i was waken up by my mom T.T
3. Okay final dream , i'll only say some scenes and symbols coz i can barely remember this one..
a.I swallow a medicine and somehow i ended becoming dizzy and i felt like i was on drugs.Everything was spinning
b.I think everyone lost their memories but there were chosen few(including me) who had this letter with some kind of rules listed wherein we have to follow to gain back our memories and also others
c.I think me and the few who have the list have to participate in a game to gain back our memories
That's it.Please help me figure this out

Example: What does this dream mean?
I got a worrying dream a couple of days ago.
My dream was about my girlfriend and someone else who neither she or me knows anything. I was not in dream, so to speak, I just was like a ''ghost'' who was watching everything. Both of them took pills and committed suicide, I don't know why, they didn't even have a sad face, they just did it!
I don't know who the girl was or why they did what they did, I have been having problems with my girlfriend but, it doesn't mean she is going to die, does it?..
Should I worry too much? My girlfriend doesn't know about my dream yet.
Thanks in Advance!

Example: What oes this dream mean?!?
i dont remember exactly what happednd, i had woken up and fell back asleep continueing the dream befor it which ran over to this dream.
we had just came back from camping(dont ask i dont even know)and i walked over into my room. something seemed off, it was like a feeling dejavou and allmost fear. i scaned the room, my normally allmost shut eyes went the size of a does. there between my bed and my bookcase, that i kept every thing but a book on, which is beside my bed, was a dissembodied elf head(picture dobbys the house elf from harry potters hed w/out a body). i froze in fear, even though i knew i was asleep my mind new what it men, HE was comeing for me agien, it was like last time, except i knew what to do, sort of anny way.
I ran into the bathroom that connected my twin's(yes ive got an identical twin) and i bed rooms. allthough for somereason there was annother door that led into a diffrent bed room with every thing was a tan color thats normally nothere, so i locked all three doors and sat in the corner.
but then i rememberd that my stupid door that led into the bathroom from my room's door lock didnt work properly, so me being stupid me ran into my room to TRY to lock my bed room door as well. but when i got in my room the door was open and HE was walking into my room, looking at me.
(okay heres the thing in both dreams with HIM [not the band] in it hes looked similar to a knight but with purple armor. hes never shown his face, and i cant remembor his voice, which wouldbe helpfull but i cant so yea use your imagenation in the future.)
i looked at HIM, my eyes wide as a doe's agien, but my body didt freeze in place as i expected it too so i jumped up on to my medium sized bed that creeks with every movement made.(its over 100 yearold or close at least, my great grandmother had it be for I, its made out of bronze or copper meatle and my comforter has a dragon and a rooster circling eachother, with two jap. or chinese symbols at each end) i crwaled over to the far side, the farthest away from HIM at leeast.he said something along the lines of " come with me (incert name i cant remember that is long and starts with a P)" or something else ive gota horrable memory at times. the more HE neared my bed, the more I was scared.I mean this dude has tried to kidnapp me twice over the past few years, what do you exspect? Happyness, no if you do then your an idout. HE sat on me=y bed and threw som plate onto my lap(DONT ASK M<Y MIND IS AWKWARD AT TIMES!) Then He tried to through some pouch with some odd looking pink liquid twords my agape mouth. I quickly shut it befor it could enter.
He tried time after time untill i couldnt help but laugh at his futile attempts. BIG misstake. i didnt noteus that hed just trown one. It landed anburst in my mouth, un willingly sliding down my throat. i became dizzy and could barely keep my sself sitting up strate. but then HE grabbed my shoulders and forced me to lay down, i could do nothing, was helpless, because of what ever that liquid was that was put in my system.
HE then started to make me swallow the pouches. (hey it was either swallow or choke, to be honest i preferd choke but my body preferd other wise.) the dizzy ness soon be came drousy ness as it became slight ly blurry. as he continued force feeding me the vile pouches he started talking, reading the worry and sleepyness on my face, alond as answering my un voiced questions.
" dont worry", he said, "the liquid wont hurt you. but you will sleep."(not exatly what he said but some of it, i wrote the whole dream down but i cant find it, youd think id be able to find a few pices of paper with green ink onit. oh well maybe its at me mos, thats where i last saw it.)Suddenly it was dark, i had blacked out...
i woke up on an odd room with more than one bed in it, they were like old time hospital beds, a simple twin bed with metal rails. there was a cold wrag on my forehead and i felt tired, physically and mentally. i got out of the bed and walked through the door into what appeared to be a small kitchen with a round table in it. two of the seats were occupied, one by HIM and the other by a,young, blond woman with long messy braded hair and glasses. i sat down in one of the unoccupied seats.
as soon as i had sat down i looked twords the woman. "this isnt the first time hes tried to take me is it?" i asked allready knowing the answer. she shook her head. HE looked twords me. "you should go lay down, the liquid is still takeing its effect. go back to bed."He said. i did as i was told, for somee reason i felt as if i could trust him. so i walked back twords the room where i had awoken...
and thats it, i left out a few things cuz they were blurry and i cant remamber what they said...but it was only between me talking to the lady and HIM talling me to go back to bed. i dont think it was immportant.
ok so the first tim i had this dream was about a year or two ago. im13 now so yea. well the firs
