dream (Sara and I prepare tree on Mary's property, flood rains)


theindiequeen and I were hired by my aunt Mary to prepare a MASSIVE tree for moving it, because it would be better off elsewhere. The ground was so wet that mud was at least an inch deep, and it was still continuing to rain. (there was water flowing among its roots, like a stream (not from the rain) -- I've dreamed that before!) We were trying to hurry as we washed it off (I think we were washing it? we were touching all the bark but it doesn't make sense to be washing it, and we weren't using soap...), because we wanted to finish before it started pouring again (it was sprinkling at the time). I noticed that Sara was scrubbing off the lichen, and I stopped her, saying that it was beneficial to the tree (?), and we continued to wash. I put a chain around the tree and then it occurred to me that aunt Mary wasn't a trustworthy person at all, and perhaps she just SAID she was moving it when really she wanted to cut it down? I panicked, because I loved the tree so much, and started crying. I was unsure whether to continue in hopes of helping the tree by moving it, or stopping because I didn't want it to get cut down. (I also realized that we could wash all around but we couldn't wash anything higher than we could reach, since we had no ladder) I decided that I had to just do what I could and hope that Mary would help, since it was on her property and I had no way of saving the tree if she wanted to cut it down. So I hugged it and communed with it, and tried to get Sara to take photos of me with it, even though I was worried about my camera getting wet. I was willing to risk it! But then she turned into someone else and didn't want to take photos of me, only herself, and I took it back and attempted to photograph myself with it (though I only got a slice of bark -- that tree was easily thick enough to have five of me wrap arms around it, fingertips barely touching).


---To dream that you cut down a tree, signifies that you are wasting your energy, time, and money on foolish pursuits.
---To see chains in your dream, signifies your need to break free from a routine, old idea, or a relationship.
---To see fungus in your dream, represents negative emotions that are expanding and growing in your unconscious. You need to find a productive way to express them before it grows out of control. (!!! we were just talking about this!)
---To see mud in your dream suggests that you are involved in a messy and sticky situation. It also suggests that some internal cleansing is needed.
---To dream that you are cleaning, implies that you are removing some negativity in your life and overcoming major obstacles. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life. You are seeking self-improvement. To dream that you are cleaning an object, represents an aspect of yourself that is not working or functioning as well as it should. (my massive tree with water roots is not working right? huh?)
---To see the trunk of a tree, signifies your inner sense of well being and personality. If the trunk is thick and large, then it denotes that you are a strong, rugged and durable person.
---To see roots of the trees or plants in your dream, symbolizes the depths and core of your unconscious mind and soul. It represents your values and belief system. Alternatively, it denotes your family ties and bonds. You may be searching into your past.
---To see water in your dream, symbolizes your unconscious and your emotional state of mind. Water is the living essence of the psyche and the flow of life energy. It is also symbolic of spirituality, knowledge, healing and refreshment. If the water is calm, clear, then it signifies that you are in tune with your spirituality. It denotes serenity, peace of mind, and rejuvenation. If you are splashed by water, then it represents your need to be revitalized and more expressive.
---To dream that you get wet from the rain, signifies that you will soon be cleansed from your troubles and problems. Rain also symbolizes fertility and renewal. To see and hear rain falling, symbolizes forgiveness and grace.

I was about halfway through this before I realized it was a dream. Kudos to me, I read subject lines!

Even after reading about all of the symbols, I really have no idea what to make of your dream. Heh. What's your interpretation?

for one thing, it suggests I'm worried about wasting time/energy/effort on something really important to me (because trees are really important to me) and that I'm going through some kind of cleansing... but I really have no idea what. My dreams seem much more dynamic than my life lately!

the fact that you're in there, well, maybe you're part of the reason I'm going through a cleansing or renewal? (spiritual) and when I told you not to scrub off the lichen, saying that it was beneficial to the tree, that is VERY clear, due to the symbolism of fungi -- negative emotions in your unconscious -- I was telling you that the negative emotions are beneficial if you treat them right (wash them, but not scrub them off -- or, express them rather than trying to eliminate them). I thought that was very cool. ;-D

You were in my dream last night. I have a somewhat sketchy memory of what happened, but I thought i'd share it with you :)

From what I remember, I was laying down on a plane that had been parked on a tree branch, which made the plane somewhat unstable, as I'm sure you can imagine. I was there with someone --a woman I didn't know-- and we were making out. I was painfully aware the entire time about how I didn't want to be intimate with her, even though she was clearly enjoying being there with me. After a few minutes, she must have caught on to my retisense and she left me. Right after that, you and a man (who was your husband in my dream, but looked nothing like Ben) came into the room we were in (the plane was gone at this point) and the two of you decided that you were going to work with me to get rid of my sexual anxieties.

The man spent some time examining me, kind of like a doctor. Just inspecting different parts of my body and then he left to organize what he saw and for you to come in and do your work. You came in with a bowl full of this deep scarlet colored powder and you were wearing a dress and a veil-type hair piece (didn't cover your face, just went down your back) that matched the powder perfectly. I don't remember exactly what you and I talked about, but I told you all sorts of things about my past both in relation to men and sex and about things completely unrelated. The entire time, you were mixing and stirring the powder and walking around me as I was laying down. At one point, you were sitting next to me and you kissed or licked the inside of my arm, right at my wrist. I shuddered because it felt so good (almost orgasm inducing) but you took my shudder as a negative reaction-- fear or repulsion. So you used the powder as a way to try and remove that repulsion from me. I wanted to explain that I wasn't feeling repulsed, only good things, but for some reason I didn't say anything out loud.

The next thing I remember, was near a large dinner table and setting it for a big meal. As I was setting the plates and silverware, you and your 'husband' came over to explain to me what you had found out. You told me that I had been raised in a prairie near lions --I think you were talking about a former life of mine. You also mentioned something about snakes but I adamantly denied it. Not long after setting the table, I went back into the plane and flew around in an effort to avoid someone.

And that's all I remember :)

oooooooohhh how awesome! :D :D :D I consider it a huge compliment to be dreamed about ♥

and WOW what a dream! it seems very powerful and meaningful -- what's your interpretation of it?

You know, I've spent all sorts of time thinking about this dream and I have a hard time understanding what it's trying to say. And for the most part, I believe that dreams don't really mean anything--it's just our unconscious mind running around while it gets the chance. But I do believe that from time to time, our dreams have a deeper meaning and that we can really get something out of them. The fact that I remember this dream so vividly really make me think there's something more to it.

Now that I've thought about it for a couple days, I think there are some themes or ideas but I'm not fully comfortable talking about them here. I will most likely make a post in my own journal (with my own filter) about the dream and what I think of it. I'll make sure that you see/read it when I post :)

I always find it fascinating to see what others dream. the thing that I have found over the years is that, while some traditional symbolism seems to creep into my dreams, i have my own personal symbolisms and definitions for everything (like where a pig traditionally symbolizes luck and wealth, I am allergic to pork and very frightened of pigs, so they mean something different to me). I think that the lush imagery in this dream is excellent! Vivid dreaming is a fabulous thing! :)
