When the River runs dry, the Circus comes by........

Also below is 2 more dreams from the same night. Resturants and Teeth falling out.....

When the River runs dry, the Circus comes by....

My dream was situated on a river bank in the back 40 of a yard. I was fishing with a few people there, 2 young boys, an ex boyfriend and my husband. I could  see an abundance of fish in the river. The water was crystal clear most of the dream, at some points the water would become patchy with murkiness so that you couldn't see the fish. There were some strange fish, "dogfish" that actually had legs and were walking along the bottom of the river bed, which was clean and sandy. I remember there were cars parked behind us and that is were the fishing equipment was kept. I was getting my fishing pole ready to fish and talking with my ex, i cant remember what the convo was about. I went back to the river and the water was draining, the fish were swimming in mere puddles 1/2 out of water. Then along came a parade of what seemed to be circus performers of all ages. There was a woman in particular that stated they were traveling to perform and met up along the river. They came from all corners of the US and started at about 20 and were up to about 500. As they passed the river ran dry and they walked along the sandy bed.
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. If the river is muddy, then it indicates that you are in turmoil

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.

Fishing Rod
To see a fishing rod in your dream represents your quest and exploration of your unconscious mind. You are ready to confront issues and emotions which you have suppressed.

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.

Ex Boyfriend
To see an old ex-boyfriend from childhood in your dream refers to a freer, less encumbered relationship. The dream serves to bring you back to a time where the responsibilities of adulthood (or marriage) did not interfere with the spontaneity of romance. You need to recapture the excitement, freedom, and vitality of youth that is lacking in your present relationship. If your ex-boyfriend hurts or ignores you, then the dream is telling you to move on with your life and stop thinking about your ex.

*To dream that your ex-boyfriend is giving you advice about your current relationship suggests that your unconscious is telling you not to repeat the same mistakes that you had made with this ex-boyfriend.
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 sand in your dream signifies a shift in perspective or a change in your attitude. Consider the familiar phrase, "the sands of time" in which it may be suggesting that you are wasting your time or letting time pass you by. If the sand is wet, then it indicates that you are lacking a sense of balance in your life.

To see a drain in your dream signifies your need to release and channel your emotions. You should not keep your feelings inside. Consider the condition and appearance of the drain for clues on how you are feeling. Alternatively, it may represent some wasted effort or loss. The dream may also be a pun on something or someone that is "draining" you of your energy or resources.

To dream that you are watching a parade indicates that you are being sidetracked or distracted from achieving your goals.�You may even be purposely preventing yourself from pursuing your goals and desires because you fear that you will fail. Alternatively, the parade symbolizes cycles, passage of time, or a special event in your life. Consider also the symbolism of whatever figures/animals/floats are in the parade. They may reflect a need for you to incorporate these attributes into your own character.

To see people you know in your dream signifies qualities and feelings of them that you desire for yourself. If these people are from your past, then the dream refers to your shadow and other unacknowledged aspects of yourself. It may represent a waking situation that is bringing out similar feelings from your past relationships.

To see people you don't know in your dream denotes hidden aspects of yourself that you need to confront or acknowledge.

The number twenty�indicates that you are in need of support. Perhaps you are feeling withdrawn and isolated.�The dream may signify having 20:20 vision. You are seeing something more clearly now.

Five (Hundred)
Five represents your persuasiveness, spontaneity, boldness, daring nature, action, and humanity. The number five represents the five human senses and thus may be telling you to be more "sensitive" and be more in tune to your senses. Alternatively, the number five may reflect a change in your path or that you need to alter your course. It is also the link between heaven and earth.

Out To Eat

Later I had another dream. My husband and I were out to eat at a sea food restaurant. It was located in our home town, but i felt so far away. We had the children and we also had a baby girl with us. I was carrying her and when I talked to the host I handed her to Matt.  I am unsure if it was indeed Stella or not. We came to our table and I asked Matt to pass me the baby and he didn't have her. I looked at the table and Eli was there. We sat and I ordered some "Ahi Mahi". I noticed the TV on the wall and it was of some fire performers. The manager at the restaurant and some of the bussers looked just like them. I told the manager I felt I knew him and possibly seen him and the others preform at the Kalahari in the dells earlier that year. I remember looking at the TV and then back at him quite a few times trying to connect the dots in my memory.
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 children in your dream signify an aspect of yourself and your childlike qualities. You may be retreating back to a childlike state and longing for the past. You are trying to still satisfy repressed desires and unfulfilled hopes. Perhaps there is something that you need to see grow and nurture. Take some time off and cater to the inner child within. Alternatively, the dream may be highlighting your innocence, purity, simplicity, and carefree attitude. If you are fighting with children, then it implies that you are repressing your inner child. The children could represent someone in your waking life (coworker, mate, sibling, etc.) who is acting like a child. If you see children fighting in your dream, then it means that your sense of morality and character are in conflict.

To forget about your child or children suggests that you are feeling overwhelmed by your waking responsibilities. The dream is telling you that you are overly fixating on minor details and overlooking the important things on your life. You need to re-prioritize your time and focus on what matters. To dream that your own grown children are still very young indicates that you still see them as young and dependent. You want to feel needed and significant.
To see your offspring in your dream symbolizes an aspect of yourself that you are trying to nurture. The dream is telling you to take some time off so you can cater to the inner child within

To see a baby in your dream signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies symbolize something in your own inner nature that is pure, vulnerable, helpless and/or uncorrupted. If you find a baby in your dream, then it suggests that you have acknowledged your hidden potential. If you dream that you forgot you had a baby, then it suggests that you are trying hide your own vulnerabilities; You do not want to let others know of your weaknesses. Alternatively, forgetting about a baby represents an aspect of yourself that you have abandoned or put aside due to life's changing circumstances. The dream may serve as a reminder that it is time for you to pick up that old interest, hobby, or project again. If you dream that you are on your way to the hospital to have a baby, then it signifies your issues of dependency and your desires to be completely care for. Perhaps you are trying to get out of some responsibility.

To�dream that you are in a restaurant suggests that you are feeling overwhelmed by decisions and choices that you need to make in your life. Alternatively, it indicates that you are seeking for emotional nourishment outside of your social support system.

To see a table in your dream represents social unity and family connections. If the table is broken, wobbly or not functional, then it suggests some dissension in a group. It may also refer to a sense of insecurity. Perhaps there is something you cannot hold inside any longer and need to bring it out in the open.

To see or eat seafood in your dream indicates recognition and a mergence of your spirituality with your conscious being. You are acknowledging and fulfilling the needs of your unconscious. The dream may also be a pun on "seeing food" and thus the symbolism of "food" is also applicable.

Eating Fish
To dream that you are eating fish symbolizes your beliefs, spirituality, luck, energy and nourishment. It is food for the soul.
To see a dead fish signifies disappointment and loss of power/wealth.
To dream of cooking fish indicates that you are incorporating your new realizations with your spiritual feelings and knowledge. If you are cleaning fish, then it suggests that you are altering your emotional expression in a way that will be presentable to others. You are censoring yourself and not expressing how you completely feel.
To dream that you are watching television represents your mind and its flowing thoughts. The dream reflects how you are receiving, integrating, and expressing your ideas and thoughts. The programs you dream of watching are an objective view of the things that are in your mind.

Another dream I had upon waking was of my teeth breaking and falling out. It took me awhile to realize in the dream that indeed it was a dream. I kept batteling with myself over if it was indeed a dream or real this time.
"My Teeth Are Falling" teethintro

Dreams of falling teeth are the most common dreams that Dream Moods receives. The typical dream scenarios include having your teeth crumble in your hands, fall out one by one with just a light tap, grow crooked or start to rot. Such dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but they often leave you with a lasting image of the dream. So what does it mean?

One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxieties about your appearance and how others perceive you. Your teeth help to convey an image of attractiveness and play an important role in the game of flirtation, whether it is flashing those pearly white, kissing or necking. Thus, such dreams may stem from a fear of rejection, sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. To support this notion, a dream research found that women in menopause report to have frequent dreams about teeth. This points to teeth dreams as being related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine. Teeth are an important feature to your attractiveness and how you are presented to others. Caring about how you look is natural and healthy.

Another rationalization for these falling teeth dreams may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxieties. Perhaps you feel that you are unprepared for the task at hand. However, you will find that your worries are unfounded in most cases. Sometimes what plays out in your mind is far worse than what is reality.

Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth symbolize power. And the loss of teeth in your dream may be from a sense of powerlessness. Are you lacking power in some current situation? Perhaps you are having difficulties expressing yourself or getting your point across. You feel frustrated when your voice is not being heard. You may be experiencing feelings of inferiority and a lack of self-confidence in some situation or relationship in your life. This dream may be an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the importance of what you have to say.

Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition or poor diet. This notion may still be applicable to some dreamers.

Other Perspectives

A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicates that you are putting your faith, trust, and beliefs in what man thinks, rather than in the word of God. The bible says that God speaks once, yea twice in a dream or a vision in order to hide pride from us, to keep us back from the pit, to open our ears (spiritually) and to instruct and correct us.

In the Greek culture, when you dream about loose, rotten, or missing teeth, it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death.
According to the Chinese, there is a saying that your teeth will fall out if you are telling lies.

It has also been said that if you dream of your teeth falling out, then it symbolizes money. This is based on the old tooth fairy story. If you lose a tooth and leave it under the pillow, a tooth fairy would bring you money.

  1. Just read this and I have had the "teeth falling out" dream a lot! So weird. I also often dream of children. Sometimes my own and sometimes they are suppose to be mine but I don't recognize them.
