I have had some intense dreams the last few days. The one full of the most symbolism is the one about the snake woman. It was Sunday morning’s dream so I will do my best to recall it as accurately as possible.
I was in the kitchen and the dishwasher door was open, it was full of dishes. I am mostly sure the dishes were clean? The cat was on the left side of the door and he leapt into the dishwasher with the beagle right behind him. I slowly walked up to the dishwasher and looked inside. The cat and the dog had something cornered in the room behind the dishwasher racks. It was just a little snake and I remember trying to get them away from it. They finally left it alone and when I looked back inside the dishwasher there was a white cat and an orange cat near the snake. I have no idea where those cats came from but I think they were secretly living in this room.
I wasn’t standing near the dishwasher when the snake started slithering out. I remember seeing red marks on it’s back and trying get a closer look at it’s markings. The snake grew as it escaped the dishwasher….we are talking Beetlejuice sized snake! The room shifted and now there was a decent amount of water on the floor…enough for the snake to swim. I was still trying to see the markings…I wasn’t concerned at all about the large snake swimming around me in my kitchen.
I finally caught a look at the markings on the back of the snake, some were hearts and some were a green pattern of a bouquet of flowers. The snake’s head emerged from the water and while her head was large (Beetlejuice reference) she was beautiful…stunning even. Her hair was long and wavy and her face was not only beautiful but it was kind.
Then I woke up. When I was trying to find an appropriate image for this dream…which I could not….but Medusa kept coming up? I have no idea what the dream means if anything but I found the Medusa element interesting…
My dream this morning was a pure stress dream. I answered the phone at work and it was someone asking for directions to a garage sale? This turned into “I feel like there is something in my eye.” As I am telling them to come now…someone is telling me “no…it’s lunch time, tell them to come at 1.” The next thing I know there is a large party being seated in my section….on top of at least three other new tables. Yes I jumped jobs in this dream. I was in the back, putting out a cigarette in an amber colored ashtray and the Optician walked by and said “just calm down.” I responded with “if you tell me to calm down one more time, I am going to punch you in the throat.” First….I haven’t had a cigarette in 7 years. Second…I have never punched anyone but this is something we say to each other at work when we are being over dramatic.
I have no idea what the balloons mean, I know a stress dream when I have one, and I know a few of the symbols in the snake dream? The woman snake part is throwing me though….any thoughts? Zia
