A sad dream

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I dreampt that I was visiting my friend in Toronto and I brought Emmett. During the course of the dream Emmett got lost. I was calling him and calling him, crying and really upset. I'm glad it was just a dream.

Also in this dream my parents got mauled by bears......but for some reason the part with Emmett upset me the most.....

Awww. I'm sorry.

Not to worry you but a few weeks ago I had a dream that I lost Baylee. The other day my boyfriend came running into the apartment, saying that Baylee had gotten out. Turns out she had found a REALLY good hiding place.

Hope Emmett stays right by your side!

Emmett is a real cutie! All that personality and cat confidence - if he does travel with you, be sure he wears an ID tag. I had a little tuxedo cat named J.C. that used to travel with me. On a visit to my sister's (over 300 mi. away from home), he slipped out when a visiting neighbor left and immediately invited himself over to another woman's apt. My smart sister had put an extra collar from her cat (so the phone number would be local) and J.C.' s new friend called us right away. J.C. was so nonchalant on his return - I think he was just doing his part as "cat-ambassador", disproving the myth of the aloof,arrogant feline!

Sorry for finding it funny, but if I had the same kind of dream, I would feel exactly the same way about my babies.

Have you not seen your friend inToronto and/or are you afraid of losing the friendship or that is diminishing? I think if any of the above is true then Emmett represents your friend, and you are disturbed on some level of losing your friend.

As far as your parents go...do they get along in real life? Or perhaps you see them as butting into your life too much. Do they sometimes feel like they are "all over you" like you would feel if you were being mauled to death.

Sorry Mom of Franz....but move over! I am known with my parents to always be able to interpret dreams perfectly! They always respond with, "Oh no, here she goes!". So if anyone wants their dreams interpretted by myself, or Mom of Franz, pls. just ask.

So let's see. The combination of the visit and the losing the cat tells me that you feel upset that if you do keep in touch with your friend that you'll betray and lose what you have going with Emmett. You call out to her but she won't respond cause she wants you all to herself, no sharing. Or vice versa with your friend, and not your cat.

Bears signifiy strength and your parents (where you get most of your strength from) come across as having confronted you about losing touch with your friends.

The fact that you were more bothered by losing your friend or cat is more traumatic to you than the situation with your parents, cause you know they'll always be there for you. The End.

Tell me what you think. I'd be anxious to know if I'm somewhat close to the truth.

And P.S.: How'd I do Barbara? Maybe we should join in partnership "Barbara and Cheryl - the Dream Catchers"

Ok. First there are no worried about me and my best friend. I just went for a visit last weekend. I don't take Emmett with me becasue she has 2 big dogs, and I think it is totally less stressful for Emmett to stay with my parents then to go there.

Yes, my parents, especially my mom, is where I get a lot of my strength.

Should I add more that happened in the dream? Where they got mauled with an amusement park/zoo where the rides weren't safe and the animals ran wild. At one point in the dream I was watching a news cast about of unsafe this place was and they were showing people falling off roller coasters and such.

My best friend's mom was also in the dream. I think we were both visiting Jen's new house, which had so many turns and twists and rooms.

I had a second orange tabby named Emma that ran off with Emmett. But it was only Emmett I was upset about. My friend's mom was telling me to just get a new cat (in real life she totally understand having a pet and it being part of your family) so I thought that it was odd she was so uncaring about it. It was her friend that owned the amusement park/zoo and I told this woman what happened to my parents (they didn't die) and she said she would give us free passes to make up for it...... ::censor::censor::censor::

I'm trying to think if there was more.....oh yeah while I was wandering around Jenn's house there were lots of people there, I think some were her inlaws and some I had no idea who they were, but they were playing different games and such.

When I did wake up and looked for Emmett right away. What a happy sight he was

I sometimes have nightmares about bad things happening to my cats and I always have to get up and check on them afterwards. I think the dreams come from knowing that their well-being is totally my responsibility.

Oooh, scary! Glad it was just a dream.

OK, now it's all coming together....... Well let me see now Ahhhh, I got it!

You and your Mom, both, think Jen's house is like an amusement park, it being so big with all the "twists, turns and rooms". Jen seems to be too mysterious to you, with all her game playing. There's too many sides to her you don't trust (all the people there were strangers) She pays no mind to what happens to your parents and suggests giving you free tickets, which tells me she likes to show off to you and your parents all her glamour, whether that be herself, or her house. So she acts blaze' about your parents well-being and tries to make them disappear into her stories about herself. She knows you love your parents and are very close to them. She covers this up with wanting to show, or give, you more things to come to see (a free pass) everytime you're there!

Sounds like deep inside you don't feel safe completely with her, with all the wildness goin on and people getting hurt that know her! The End! Again!

Tell me when you're ready!

Actually, why don't you and I start our own thread on this site for anyone who wants their dreams deciphered. It can be called "Dreams Catchers - deciphered by: Barbara and Cheryl" and we can both give our interpretations for each dream.

The secret will be the dream will become our reality by making money, and we'll charge $5.00 per interpretation! Think anyone will go for it? Well maybe we'll leave out the money part then.

It's fun to play with dreams and try to help others interpret them. I actually took a lot of classes in this, read a alot about it, and eventually have held my own classes and workshops for people to interpret their dreams! It has been great fun and people learn a lot about themselves. My take on it, though, is that no one can interpret another's dream for them. I think that this is so simply because everyone has such different connotations for things in their lives. I demonstrated this at the beginning of each workshop or class I taught by doing the following: I would pass out paper and pens, then give the group three words at random. For example: popcorn, swimming, horse. I would ask each person to write three or four sentences of the first things that come to their minds when I said each word. It would be very interesting to hear what they wrote. The responses to each word would vary extremely widely. For example, one person would say "I have ridden horses all of my life and they are my favorite animal. My father was a horse trainer and my family breeds Arabians for show. Horses are my whole life, and I want a career in horse breeding." But another would write: "horses scare me to death. They are huge and dangerous and very dirty and I hate how they smell. One stepped on my foot one time and it took weeks to heal. I stay as far as I can from them!" Now, if both people dream of a horse can it possibly mean the same thing? And unless you know another person's whole history of connotations, you cannot know what it means if they dream about a certain thing. So that is why I think that only the dreamer can truly interpret his or her own dream. sometimes, though, it can help a lot for another person to say "maybe this thing in your dream means thus and so" because then the dreamer can think about it and it will either ring true, or else he or she will know that's not right, but it will make them think of what it really does mean.

Anyway, all this was just my two cents' worth. Probably not even worth that much! But, playing with dreams can really be informative, too, about what is going on in your subconscious.

I sometimes dream that Beau is in danger, and have to get out of bed and find him and hold him just to reassure myself, even when I know it was only a dream. Sometimes, for some people, dreams really can fortell the future; be "precognitive". This has happened to me and to others I know. It is not common, but it can happen. So I take care to pay attention to certain of my dreams if they seem to be warnings.
"Nagdeo" ("good dreaming")
Happy dreaming to all!
