dreams (fish in champagne flutes w water beads / seeking out my ex-spouse -who is warm? / mockery)


icon: "fish (my fractal "Strange Babies": an abstract glassy sphere missing pieces. At its center are three pink elongated ovals ending in flared yellow)"

20th: I dreamed about fish out of water again. This time they were bettas in about 30 champagne flutes that were filled with water-beads, so they could barely survive and couldn't move almost at all. They belonged to my mother. I took them out one by one and put them in a giant (6' by 3' by 3') but completely devoid of decoration water tank. For some reason I thought they would try to eat the water beads if they were in the big tank, so I had to get them out very carefully. Some of the glasses had two fish in them! I often have dreams about fish in need of rescue but I haven't figured out the pattern yet.

21st: I dreamed that I wanted to reconnect with my ex-spouse, in a limited way. I had a list of things but I can't remember what they are. I felt self-conscious of being fat and wanted to ask if they had had sex with a fat person before (because I am significantly larger than I was when we were together). It was very strange. I felt somehow comforted by their presence, and they felt very warm and cozy (which is not actually how I feel around them). Later that dream I was really warm and friendly to someone (random 'person I knew in high school': a conglomerate of faces) and afterward realized they were mocking me.

Do you want opinions on what your dreams might mean? If not, please ignore my opinions.

Your 'fish out of water' dreams remind me of the 'suffering rabbits' dreams that I had for many years after my father had forced me to have my pet rabbits killed. After a lot of dream-journaling, and other self-exploration, I worked out that for me a rabbit is a dream-symbol of the vulnerable, childlike part of me. Since I worked my way to sanity I still dream of rabbits but they're happy rabbits with plenty of grass to eat. (And I pacify my father but don't intend ever to see him again.)

No doubt you're familiar with how the phrase 'fish out of water' is used. Do you feel like a fish out of water in some part of your life?

I wonder whether your 'ex-spouse' dream was actually about somebody, or something, different from the ex-spouse themself.
