Dreaming A Dream About You

I awoke earlier than usual on a Saturday, from a dream that left tracings of a smile of my lips. Of course, because it’s a dream, it’s only remembered in parts. I’ve had few dreams in which I could remember every detail. Sadly, this isn’t one of the few.

In this particular dream, I was on a date with a current friend I don’t recall personally meeting. Where ever we were, it must’ve been a type of lounge because it was intimate and dark. Whatever he was doing, he must’ve been doing it well because he was making me smile. I remember sitting close to him, talking and laughing. Then I remember dancing with him. A slow dance, arms embraced, our heads close together. That’s when the kiss happened. While the tunes tapered off, our lips quickened to meet. And then I woke up.

WHAT THE HELL? I know, I know, but I can’t help how dreams are. Or how Life is for that matter. Because the same day, I laid down for a nap and experienced the exact opposite. In my nightmare, I was in bed, but couldn’t move, not even to open my eyes. As I struggled to gain control of my body, I could hear voices and a drawer opening and closing. After repeating The Lord’s Prayer several times, I was finally able to open my eyes. Although I couldn’t turn my head, I could see that a horse on his knees to the right of my bed. Also, to the left of my bed was the aforementioned drawer, but no hand nor body to open and close it. As for the voices, their owners could not be seen. Shortly after that, I was able to end the nightmarish event by opening my real eyes and bolting out of bed.

Back in the days, oracles were consulted about unusual dreams. Nowadays, we consult the great oracle called Google. After my trek up a mountain of result listings, I found a cache of potential answers:

“To dream that you are in the bedroom, signifies aspects of your self that you keep private and hidden. It is also indicative of your sexual nature and intimate relations.”

If I focus on “Location, Location, Location,” then the bedroom would be prime real estate. Apparently, private things are kept in private places. Duh. Unless you’re also the type to have sex in the kitchen, in the shower, on the sofa… 😉 In any case, some may interpret the location of my dream to mean that my intimate self or relationship is involved.

“To see an opened door in your dream, symbolizes your receptiveness and willingness to accept new ideas/concepts. To dream that the door is closed or locked, signifies opportunities that are denied and not available to you or that you have missed out on. Something or someone is blocking your progress. It also symbolizes the ending of a phase or project. In particular, if you are outside the locked door, then it suggests that you have anti-social tendencies. If someone slams the door in your face, then it indicates that you are feeling shut out or some activity or that you are being ignored.”
In my dream, an unseen hand was opening and closing a bedside table drawer. Two things were strange about that. One, I don’t have a bedside table with a drawer. Two, that unseen hand was creepy! Aside from those two observations, I suppose the dream was capitalizing on my low receptiveness to an idea someone recently told me. In addition, that same person has denied me input to the makings or progress of the plan-in-action. As a result, I have been withdrawing from said person, but I’m ignoring him because he ignored me first.

 

“To dream about your own body, signifies your level of self-worth and self-esteem. Often times, these qualities are dependent on your physical appearance or how your perceive yourself. The dream body also reflects your conscious identity. The body is also representative of your state of health.”
In this dream, my body was paralyzed. Does that also mean my self-esteem is also at a standstill? Why would my self esteem or even my health be affected by my decision to exclude the person from my life? He doesn’t matter like that…

“To dream that your eyes are injured or closed, suggests your refusal to see the truth about something or the avoidance of intimacy. You may be expressing feelings of hurt, pain or sympathy.”
The fact that I was unable to open my eyes totally freaked me out. I hate not having control of anything, least of all my body. But if this is somebody’s way of communicating to me that I’m hurting inside, then that somebody is sick and misinformed. I already know I’m upset and hurt, lied to and ignored, excluded then expected to know. Tell me something new, please.

“To see a horse in your dream, symbolizes strength, power, endurance, virility and sexual prowess. It also represents a strong, physical energy. You need to tame the wild forces within. The dream may also be a pun that you are ‘horsing around.’ Alternatively, to see a horse in your dream, indicate that you need to be less arrogant and ‘get off your high horse.'”
So… Am I being told that my crow’s nest position is too lofty to serve its purpose? Or is the symbol of the horse an indication that my position is strong? Should I surrender or bomb the hell out of my enemy?

“To see a dead horse in your dream, indicates that something in your life that initially offered you strength is now gone. This may refer to a relationship or situation. Consider the phrase ‘beating a dead horse’ to indicate that you may have maximized the usefulness of a certain circumstance.”
In my dream, the horse was on his knees. However, I’m not sure if it was alive or dead. If it were dead, then this dream’s interpretation is stacking in favor of describing a recent disagreement’s effect on my psyche. The dream may also be alluding to my stubbornness, but OH WELL! I refuse to lose!
 

I’m no expert at this dream interpretation stuff and I can completely understand why oracles were consulted on the matter; however, if an oracle told me all of this indefinite information, I’d want to push him/her down the mountain I just trekked up. I might even attempt to do it too, until I remembered the repercussions of messing with the local shaman. Who am I to anger the Gods for killing their favorite Seer? For how long could I run from angry villagers? 😉

According to some dream interpretation resources, five minutes after the end of a dream, half the content is forgotten. After ten minutes, about 10% is remembered. In my case, an entire day has gone by and I wish that I could remember more than half of the first dream and less than 10% of the second one!
