Go, go, go Joseph?

What do people think about dreams? Can they be a representation of your subconscious? If you have a really bizarre and twisted dream, is it silly to read into it and dissect a meaning? Kinda like Joseph did with the fat and slim cows? Although I don’t think I’m about to save a country from eight years of famine.

I’m not going to go into the details here, but I recently had a rather disturbing dream. When I woke up, I thought I could see a clear meaning and understanding to it. A clear connection between it and events that had recently happened in my life. I told several friends about this dream. The general reaction was “that is really BIZARRE” and “I think you’re reading too much into it” when I described my interpretation.

You see, I think that dreams can represent your subconscious. There was a time, a year or two ago when I was trying to deal with a lot of anger and big forgiveness issues. Except I hadn’t dealt with it, I’d pushed all the anger down inside of me and tried to carry on as normal. I don’t like being angry, so it was my bodies natural reaction at the time. During that period I had a number of dreams where the anger was very apparent, even though in real life it wasn’t surfacing. It wasn’t until a good friend worked through the anger and enabled forgiveness, that I was free of these dreams.

This latest dream wasn’t like the others. It wasn’t angry. But to me, it seemed to have a hidden meaning, which knowing my recent life history, seemed clear to me. But is it silly to read too much into dreams?

Disturbing Dreams

Twice in the past week, I have had a v.strange dreams. One of them involved a good friend being wanted by the FBI, and the two of us being on the run from them. And the other one (last night) was about another good friend who decided to kill everyone (except me – I used reverse psychology to get out of it!). I really am beginning to wonder what is going on in this crazy head of mine!

A friend who I described these dreams to, said it could be stress related. Which could be true. I have got quite a lot of work on, and am trying to sort out house stuff, SCM stuff alongside various other things. I thought I was coping with it all. I haven’t been getting too stressed about my work, and I’ve just about been fitting everything else in. I’m out most evenings this week and I’m just generally busy. Maybe my head just spins during the night with it all, and it comes out in the dreams. Maybe I should try relaxing for an hour or so before I go to sleep. Maybe I should go to bed earlier. I just don’t have the time though. My diary is packed for the next few weeks. Hmm.
