A Mess, Cats, Stairways

The first dream I had last night was in a home I used to live in. My husband apparently lived there alone in the dream. It was TRASHED and his mother was coming to clean for him. I was emptying full ashtrays that were all over the house. I was disgusted.

To see or use an ashtray in your dream, suggests that you are trying to rid yourself of former feelings/memories and your old ways. It symbolizes relationships that have been extinguished and no longer intact.� Alternatively, it may be related to feelings of anxieties or connected to your smoking habit, especially if you are trying to quit.

The second dream was of me in bed and 2 cats were trying to jump up on me while i was sleeping. I kept batting them down and they kept trying to jump on me.
To see a cat in your dream, symbolizes an independent spirit, feminine sexuality, creativity, and power. It also represents misfortune and bad luck. The dream symbol has different significance depending on whether you are a cat lover or not. The cat could indicate that someone is being deceitful or treacherous toward you. If the cat is aggressive, then it suggests that you are having problems with the feminine aspect of yourself.�If you are afraid of the cat in your dream, then it suggests that you are fearful of the feminine. The dream may be a metaphor for "cattiness" or someone who is "catty" and malicious. If you see a cat with no tail, then it signifies a loss of independence and lack of autonomy.

To dream that a cat is biting you, symbolizes the devouring female. Perhaps you are taking and taking without giving. You may be expressing some fear or frustration especially when something is not going as planned. If you dream that a cat is scratching you, then it suggests that you are feeling threatened.
To see a black cat in your dream, indicates that you are experiencing some fear in using your psychic abilities and believing in your intuition. You may erroneously associate the black cat with evil, destruction, and bad luck. In particular, if the black cat is biting, clawing or attacking you, then the dream means that you must acknowledge what your intuition is trying to tell you. You can no longer ignore it. Do not be afraid to face the situation. If you see a white cat, then it denotes difficult times.

the last dream was of me in a hotel. I was going in and out of doors and up elevators and up stairs. I would open a door and be out on a ledge really high up above a party going on below. Everything was white and it was a black tie event below. My Ex-sister-in-law, who died a couple years back was in it. We were on some stairs and she was telling me something that I cant quite remember. I do remember he apologizing for something. Then we were talking about a pair of shoes she had and something about her mother and her daughter Heaven. I cant quite remember what we were talking about. But she looked really good, better than I remember her looking here on Earth. She kept laughing about these shoes she had and how her mom got mad she cut them up.

To see a hotel in your dream, signifies a new state of mind or a shift in personal identity. You are undergoing some sort of transition and need to move away from your old habits and old way of thinking. You need to temporarily escape from your daily life.�Alternatively, the dream may imply a loss in your personal identity.

To dream that you are entering through a door, signifies new opportunities that are presented before you. You are entering into a new stage in your life and moving from one level of consciousness to another.�In particular, a door that opens to the outside, signifies your need to be more accessible to others, whereas a door that opens into the inside, denotes your desire for inner exploration and self-discovery.
To see an opened door in your dream, symbolizes your receptiveness and willingness to accept new ideas/concepts. In particular, to see a light behind the door, suggests that you are moving toward greater enlightenment/spirituality.

To dream that you are ascending in an elevator, represents a rise to status and wealth. You may have risen to a higher level of consciousness and are looking at the world from an elevated viewpoint. If the elevator is moving upward in an out of control fashion or it crashes through the roof, then it indicates that you are being catapulted to a position of power in which you do not yet know how to deal with. You are afraid of the new responsibilities ahead for you. Descending in an elevator, suggests that you are being grounded or coming back down to reality. It also signifies setbacks and misfortunes.
In general, the up and down action of the elevator represents the ups and downs of your life. It also symbolizes emotions and thoughts that are emerging out of and submerging into your subconscious. Alternatively, the dream may have sexual connotations.

To dream of being or moving up, suggests that you are emerging from some depressing or negative situation. You may be feeling high or euphoric. The dream may also compensate for your waking feelings of sadness. Alternatively, it signifies that your ego is inflated.�Or that you are experiencing upward mobility or progressing toward your goals.

According to Jung, the dream parallels some material or repressed thoughts that may be emerging from your unconscious.
To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs, indicate that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual, emotional or material journey. The dream is also analogous to material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.

To dream that you are standing on a ledge, indicates that you are feeling tense, anxious and/or excited. Consider what direction you are looking? Up? Down? Straight Ahead? The direction to which you are looking relates to your viewpoint, whether it be an optimistic one, pessimistic one or realistic one. On a more positive note, this dream may signify a sense of freedom and liberation.

You are refusing to conform to some idea or attitude.

To see old and worn shoes in your dream, indicates that you will find success through hard work and diligence. You have come to terms about who you are.�

Gone Fishing

My dream last night was situated in a boat on a river near a damn. I was with my husband and maybe my dad? I remember my husband being there for sure. We were right next to the damn which was very tall. I could see a large ammount of fish in the river. The damn was closed and the water was pretty still. We pulled a huge fish out, I mean a fish about 4feet long. There was a lot more to the dream I cant remember very well. I think my son was also in the dream. I also believe at some point in the dream I flew away through the woods

To dream that you are in or see a boat, signifies your ability to cope with and express your emotions. Pay particular attention to the condition and state of the waters, whether it is calm or violent, clear or murky, etc. Are you "smooth sailing"? Alternatively, you may be ready to confront your unconscious and unknown aspects of yourself. The dream could be telling you not to rock the boat and to stay out of harm's way.

To see a clear and calm river in your dream, indicates that you are just going with the flow. You are allowing your life to float away. It is time to take a more decisive role in directing your life. Alternatively, a river symbolizes joyful pleasures, peace, prosperity and fertility. If you are crossing a river in your dream, then it represents an obstacle or issue that you need to deal with in order to move closer toward your goal. It is also reflective of a new stage in your life.

To see a dam in your dream, signifies repressed emotions or feelings that needs to be released. To dream of a bursting dam, denotes that you have lost control of your anger and are overwhelmed with emotions.

To see your husband in your dream, signifies the waking relationship with your husband and the unconscious feelings you have towards him. The dream may be trying to focus on hidden elements that you are not addressing in your waking life.

To see your father in your dream, symbolizes authority and protection. It suggests that you need to be more self-reliant. Consider also your waking relationship with your father and how aspects of his character may be incorporated within yourself.

To dream that you are fishing, indicates that you are confronting and bringing your repressed emotions to the surface. In particular, to dream that you are ice fishing, suggests that you are breaking through a hardened emotional barrier and confronting difficult feelings from your unconscious. Alternatively, it represents your need for leisure and relaxation.
Consider the common phrase "fishing for compliments". Perhaps you are looking for attention.

To see fish swimming in your dream, signifies insights from your unconscious mind. Thus to catch a fish, represents insights which have been brought to the surface. Alternatively, a fish swimming in your dream may symbolize conception. Some women dream of swimming fish when they get pregnant. The fish is also an ancient symbol of Christianity and Christian beliefs. Consider the common phrases "like a cold fish", "fish out of water" or something that is "fishy" about a situation. It may also imply a slippery or elusive situation. Perhaps your dream could be telling you that "there are plenty of other fish in the sea", with regards to some relationship issue.

To see your son in your dream, signifies your ideal, hopes, potential, and the youthful part of yourself. On the other hand, to see your son in your dream may not have any significance and is simply mirroring your waking life. The dream may also be a pun on "sun".

To dream that you are flying, signifies a sense of freedom where you had initially felt restricted and limited.

To see the woods in your dream, represent life, fertility, rejuvenation, and spring. Alternatively, the woods symbolize the unknown and the unconscious. You need to open yourself up to discovering your potential and your instinctual nature.
To dream that you are walking through the woods, signify your return to an aspect of yourself that is innocent and spiritual. If you are walking out of the woods, then the dream may be a literal depiction of being "out of the woods" or being in the clear of some situation.

Shot Down

My dream was set in a field that was also a parking lot & during the day. My children and I were in our truck and my husband was besides another car. There were 2 men in the car who resembled some 80's gangsters. I am not sure what business my husband had with the men in the car. The driver emerged and my husband and him exchanged a few words I don't remember. The man pulled out a gun, cocked it and shot 2 rounds into the air. My husband then also pulled out and gun and cocked it. He shot the man that emerged from the car. Everything was in slow motion at this time. Then I looked behind my husband and there were a few other men emerging from another vehicle. I called to my husband for us to leave but there were vehicles blocking us and he was not listening. The men had lots of guns and started firing rounds at my husband and hitting him twice. I could see my husband fall slowly to the ground in slow motion and I was freaking out in the car. I unbuckled my sons car seat and pulled him to the floor of the truck. He was whimpering and crying as he watched his father fall to the ground with 2 gunshot wounds that were bleeding. I had the door open and was in the back seat with my children. I called to my husband to come into the vehicle. I was contemplating in my head whether to pull him into the vehicle and drive off or call 911. The other men that shot him got into their vehicles and drove off. I awoke in panic and could not get the dream out of my head.

The next dream I had was set in the night. I was in a fenced in yard throwing Frisbees around. They glowed in the dark. I was playing with a bunch if children I did not know. My son was there. The children I did not know were behaving in odd ways like sucking on each others fingers. I got weirded out and was preparing to leave. I couldn't find my sons shoes. There was an older lady there who was telling me it was all OK and gave me a hug. I thought she was a little weird for letting these children behave the way they were. I left with my son, then woke up.

I will be back to decipher the dream.
