Explain my Dreams! Good luck

What do Dreams Mean ?

Last night I had a dream about a removal truck arriving at my house and it was full of packing boxes; what does a steamer trunk symbolize in our dreams?

Like most people I wanted to find out. I had read about how to interpret dreams, many years ago and thought I would have a go at figuring it out.

The dream continued and I was a little perplexed as my house is already full of furniture and the usual stuff of the 21st century.

I told the removal guys that they would have to put it in the garage. Good luck with that task, trying to fit a 40 foot trailers contents into a 20 foot garage?

I stood there and watched as they began loading the boxes, neatly into the garage.

Explain my Dream

Detailed Dreams. The Elements

The boxes themselves were very specific in terms of size.

They were the size of box that would hold about 30 paperback size books.

I do have some books still in boxes from the last move. I moved about 6 months ago.

The second part of the dream involved our daughter,

She is staying with us at the moment and she will be flying home at some stage.

Like any modern young lady she has huge steamer trunks that she is going to take on the plane.

It is going to cost her a fortune in excess baggage.

I think this is crazy and that she should send it by cargo ship.

What does my dream mean?

When I awoke the dream was still very clear in my mind. I suppose the same as most people I wondered what it all meant. So I thought about it and I came to some conclusions.

The dream did not disturb me as such. It was more on the level of the feeling you get when asked “would you like tea or coffee” That was about the level of concern.

What do these symbols mean and is my interpretation of it in line with other people or unique to me?

And this got me thinking about the interpretation of dreams and the whole symbolism surrounding the dream and dreamer.

So I went to the source:

Sigmund Freud et al.

Freud's Perspective.

“With the application of this technique every dream will reveal itself as a psychological structure, full of significance, and one which may be assigned to a specific place in the psychic activities of the waking state.”

Source:

Ch.1 The Scientific Literature of Dream-Problems (up to 1900 )

'The Interpretation of Dreams' Sigmund Freud (1856 – 1939)

First published in German in November 1899 as Die Traumdeutun

So what exactly does Freud mean? First problem, it is an interpretation and therefore inexact.

Freud considered that dreams were worthy of study. He stated that to further understand his patients he would need also need other techniques. So he developed and has been credited with being the creator of Psychoanalysis.

Freud has been both attacked and deified in equal measure but I will leave that for others to comment on.

When Freud was writing his ground-breaking work on the interpretation of dreams he had no internet, TV or even radio.

There was of course the literature of the ages but no codified or collected knowledge regarding the subconscious mind.

This I think is one of Freud’s most important contributions. He started the conversation.

People started talking about dreams and taking the subject seriously. Are there common symbols in dream that we would all recognise?

So where did the idea come from, that there is an idea of a “shared symbolism”? Not from Freud.

The three founders of modern Psychology are Freud, Jung and Adler.

All modern dream interpretation and much of our modern concepts of symbolism was built on the shoulders of these three giants. But curiously none of the three ever mentioned a universally shared human symbolism.

Today a whole industry has developed explaining dreams and it still continues to fascinate and elude our complete understanding. The fact that international travel is much more common today may explain why some people may assume that we all share the same symbolic imagery and language. As we have see above. Its quite obvious that we do not.

A good night sleep

Getting a good nights sleep is very important. Our dream sequence follows a predictable pattern throughout the sleep phase. Usually in roughly 3 hour chunks.

The first phase - non rapid eye movement (REM) is fairly shallow and lasts between an hour and an hour and a half depending on circumstances.

The second phase which includes the rapid eye movement (REM) phase, consists of periods of dreaming and very deep sleep.

Any disruption from this pattern from snoring or other more serious disturbances like sleep apnea, will lead to feeling very tired during your waking time, and can lead to much more serious health issues.

In fact just a few days of poor sleep will seriously impair judgement and can lead to catastrophic failures. There have been many examples of car drivers, train drivers or pilots falling asleep and crashing.

Sleep and dreaming is so important to good health. We neglect it at our peril.

Understanding your dreams and interpreting them is something only you can truly do, if we are honest.

You can share your dreams with others to try to figure out the meaning but in reality only you can untangle the meaning of things and events that occur in your dreams.

A more detailed understanding of your dreams could be helped by reading the authors mentioned above. Collectively their's is a great contribution, to this, the most difficult of the sciences.

The study of humans.

Dreams are fragments that our brain tries to organise

Symbolism in Dreams

To understand our dreams we need to ask the question.

Do all humans share a common symbolism or do different cultures have different interpretations of symbols?

In indigenous native american symbols. To dream of the buffalo means:-

  • Provision, Gratitude, Abundance
  • Consistency, Strength, Stability,
  • Blessing, Prosperity, Provision
  • Gratitude, Abundance, Consistency

Ideas Don't Always Travel Well

The above explanation will mean nothing to someone from Australia as they would be unfamiliar with the form or shape of the buffalo. It would be like trying to explain high finance to a Banker!

The same applies in reverse; an aboriginal in Australia trying to describe the kangaroo in her dream to a Indigenous Indian living in the USA will have a hard task.

You can imagine the conversation.

Aboriginal woman. “Well it’s a big animal that looks a little like a mouse but huge and it bounces along and carries its kids....they call their kids Joey's don't ya know...they carry 'em in a pouch made from skin on its stomach.”

Indigenous American. “Huh?”

Another difficulty is that they don't speak each others language either.

I guess the rise in global tourism and the internet is beginning to create a global symbolic language but it is still a baby at the moment and therefore we are still culturally bound up in the symbols we are raised in.

So what does my dream mean? I have never had a dream quite like this one before.

I have a few ideas. Maybe the boxes in the garage, represent things that I have dealt with, and have put aside, but don't want to forget.

My daughter is going away. I suppose there is a little separation anxiety and we want her to be safe and sound, but who really knows?

Over to you. What do you think. Have you ever had an unusually memorable dream?

Interpreting Dreams can get tricky.

Depending on which psychologist you favour, will influence your interpretation of your dreams.

Some people think that 'you' are everyone in your dream. This makes some sense. But the people populating your dream are 'your' interpretation of those 'people' and not a true reflection of those people at all.

Only 'your' view of them.

So to find the clue's to interpreting 'their' actions on 'your' dreams you have to look at your own motivations.

Why do you think, you dream about a particular person in the way you do. As in reality these dream people are projections of yourself?

Hope this helps you to get a handle on your dreams and that you continue your journey, a little better informed. The books listed above are really useful. If you really want to explain and understand your dreams more deeply then check out the sources listed above.

Probably the most frustrating things about dreams is only remembering part of them! Interpreting dreams, in spite of those in the know, is difficult because everyone thinks differently as you've so aptly pointed out in your example of the Australian and the American Indian.

Very interesting to say the least.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

Well that certainly is an interesting dream NianG.

Some theories suggest that 'you', are all the characters in the dream or your version, of these people in the dream.

There may be an element of projection in the dream. i.e. what 'you' feel and think, how certain people will react to the pregnancy.

Hello, im looking for advice on a dream ive recently had and i cannot interpret it?! it starts... I am at work going about my daily routine when suddenly this pregnant tummy appears on me, im rushed to hospital in labour by my female boss, im then straining and straining but all i can see is white walls, then my boss in green scrubs delivering my baby but all i can see is her face in a green mask but i know thats what shes doing, then im suddenly in the hospital canteen with my partner holding a baby boy upside down by the leg, hes telling me off for not holding it properly and all im bothered about is telling my mum ive had a baby and say he's 8 hours old now i have to tell her, im not really interested in the baby at all, which would never be the case if i had a baby im very ready for kids right now!? any suggestions?

Hello somewhere below,

What an interesting dream.

Have you thought about the symbolism of not being able to speak and being paralysed. And that no one could see your dilemma.

What do you think it means.

Hello goodfeelings,

Thank you for dropping in and leaving your comment.

There really is only one person who can interpret your dream. You.

If you would like to find out how to analyse your dreams.

I can highly recommend the book by Adler mentioned above.


goodfeelings 3 years ago

Hi there!

I meditate regularly and feel as though I'm very in touch with my inner world, but recently (in the last week) I've had dreams every night that have troubled me.

One of them was that I was in a building similar to a court or library (quiet, open, mahogany desks) with my sister and a few others, suddenly we are ambushed by guerilla's who were bombing and firing weapons at us. I told my sister to hide, she hid under a desk, and I went out (stupidly?!) to be met with our dad, who was seemingly leading the attack. I remember screaming at him to stop but he said he wouldn't, he was after my sister because she was "fat". Horrified, I was punching him and screaming for him to stop, but he was so angry. There was a lot of darkness surrounding his head...

It's bizarre! I have 2 others that I'd like some feedback on as well if you're up for it!

Hello vespawoolf,

It is shocking how we do just collect all this stuff. Some of it belongs to our children who have all moved out now.

We carried this stuff around for years and when we asked them what they want us to do with it, they say give it to the charity shop. lol

We still have stuff to get rid off and I agree it is liberating.


vespawoolf profile image

vespawoolf 4 years ago from Peru, South America

You're so right about accumulating belongings over time. We have given everything away and started over many times due to our moves, and I feel liberated every time we do it. Then before I know it, we've accumulated too many things again! I say "we", but I think it's more "me" than my husband.

Yes, fear of the unknown was the source of my losing-the-teeth dreams. Not too pleasant!

Hello vespawoolf,

I agree with you that it is only really the dreamer that can fully interpret their dreams. Freud and Jung can give us some good ideas in terms of the symbolic nature of the elements of the dream.

My interpretation of the steamer trunk and packing boxes on a very basic level relates to our most recent move.

Also the idea that we have too much 'stuff'.

When we left South Africa, we gave away almost the entire contents of our 4 bedroom house and still managed to fill a 40 foot shipping container.

My daughter taking all her stuff overseas seem's similarly a silly thing to do.

How we accumulate all this stuff, which we then have to drag around after us is a pain, and a matter for consideration.

We have never been materialistic, at least we never thought so.

It is just the collection of things over a lifetime of raising a family, that now need to be put in place of disposed of.

Pretty simple I guess. Although I imagine a psychological review could make deeper meanings.

Teeth in dreams are quite a common symbol for fear. Your interpretation sounds right. Thanks for reading.

vespawoolf 4 years ago from Peru, South America

This is a fascinating subject that has always intrigued me. I think we can get help (from Freud or Jung) to interpret the dream, but in the end only the dreamer can truly understand its significance. Did you ever arrive at a conclusion? I had a recurring dream once that my teeth were falling out. They'd either crumble or fall out whole. I did a little research and realized that I was feeling insecure because our life was on hold. We were about to move but didn't know when/where. Anyway, after we began the moving process that dream disappeared. So I guess it was the correct interpretation! Voted up and shared. Thank you for another interesting hub.

Hello Deb Welch,

Dreams can be controlled and even directed. It takes practice but is possible.

First you have to find a way to realise that you are dreaming. One way is to try pinching yourself. Or turning on a light. When you realise that you can do neither of these you will know that you are dreaming.

I visited Buffalo many years ago. I have relatives there.

Thanks for the votes.


Deb Welch 4 years ago

molometer - I've been having a tremendous amount of nonsensical dreams if I happen to wake up and remember some of them otherwise I don't and cannot get back to sleep. Your dream I thought was very logical - as organizing ideas into categories whether you keep them or lose them. I am living in Buffalo, New York and I am very close to the Buffalo Zoo. I actually visit the 4 Bison who face a lush golf course and their enclosure is way too small for these big animals. One came over to me in summer and just looked at me with those gorgeous brown eyes and walked away as if to thank me for the company. I continue to visit. I voted your Hub Up - Useful and Interesting. Good finding you in Hub Pages.

To Cindy,

If this were my dream and I had experienced issues of abuse in my life as I child, I would interpret it as follows:

My child self is fearful of STRANGE unknown external forces that are threatening her life. They attack her from behind (past experience remembered).My parent self is trying to protect her along with a group of allies in the community (represented by the building). Even though I try to protect her, I fail and am killed, but I am not hurt. Instead I melt into the floor. The floor represents your basic support, your physical life. I think the phrase “floored” is appropriate here, meaning overcome or overpowered by physical forces. It would occur to me that I was confronting my deepest fears in the dream and surrendering to them, after a fight. The surrender part is not a weakness but a dissolving of the fear in your consciousness. The fear has no way of existing within you when you are no longer fighting it.

It is a funny, thing how our unconscious knows exactly how to liberate us from deep anxiety that causes havoc in our daily life. When we hold on to past fearful experiences, they become the aliens or the monsters in our dream. When fear is dissolved the monsters disappear.

Attacked, attacked from behind

Aliens

Fighting

Protecting a child

Overtaken

Killed

Strange, strange

Group of us, allies

Building community

Dissolved onto the floor

Not hurt

Hope this is helpful.

Val

Not the one about aliens! Heck no! Makes no sense to me at all. But I have been plagued by nightmares my whole life. Fortunately not as much as I used to be. I lived in a very abusive situation until I was 18 and able to move out on my own. I'm sure that has something to do with it. I still remember nightmares I had when I was three.


molometer profile image

molometer 5 years ago Author

I did a little navel gazing and came to the conclusion that it had something to do with writing. I seem to be organising my thoughts into coherent categories. My daughter pointed that out to be honest and I think she may be right. She is off to live in the Desert soon and the packing trunks are the mass of love they she is taking with her from us. Who knows we probably need a shrink lol

Dreams are weird aren't they. You made some sense of your dream you say?


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas

Sometimes I have really strange dreams, many of which I hope have no meaning at all. For instance, night before last I dreamed about being attacked by aliens. A group of us, I didn't know any of the people, were trying to hide in a building. It was overtaken, and as I was fighting to protect a child, I was attacked from the rear and killed. I dissolved onto the floor and it never hurt. Strange huh? And I have not watched a movie about aliens in years.

But then I have some where I can definitely tie into my current life and I can see my mind trying to deal with it.

I never thought about people in different cultures trying to explain dreams to each other. It could be difficult.

Did you ever decide what the dream meant for you?


Feliva profile image

Feliva 5 years ago from Albuquerque, New Mexico

If this were my dream I would view it as such:

I have stored my memories in boxes and I still have some in my garage. The presence of my daughter visiting has reminded me of more very neatly stored memories that I was not consciously thinking about until her visit. The men with the removal truck represent to me my will to remove these memories. But, I don’t really want to do that, so I have them neatly store them in my garage. They are vivid, detailed and treasured memories that I do not wish to remove. My daughter is attached to what she values so much so that she is willing to pay a fortune to keep them with her. Similarly, I am fortunate to have my treasured memories.

Word associations: Truck, trunk, fortune, treasure

removal - taking something away

truck – vehicle for moving something

my house - comfort stability

packing boxes.- organization

my house - comfort security

full of furniture – comfortable memories

21st century. – newness, not historical, modern

removal guys – willfulness

garage.- storage

boxes neatly – neat storage

into the garage.- storage

were very specific – ordered

30 paperback size books. Memories, reflections

books s history memories

till in boxes neatly sored

daughter, feeling self

flying home happiness

modern young lady aspiring feelings

huge steamer trunks box that carries valuables

cost her a fortune – what is valuable

excess baggage.- too many memories

cargo ship?

Maybe there are parts of your life you chose to shut off, leave in boxes. You know they are there and need unpacking like the ones you haven't touched in 6 months. I am not too sure about the second part though. Luke is a good person to ask about dream interpretation.

Just thinking in terms of there being 30 books in each box. HubPages is doing the Hub Patron of the Arts contest in November and choosing a winner every day of the contest. NaNoWriMo (as it is supposed to be written - oops) is National Novel Writing Month, but it is not just a national thing. The idea is to commit to writing a full novel in the month of November. No editing, just writing. These were the first things to come to my mind when I was reading about your dream and the fact that you noticed the boxes could hold 30 books. Could be a fluke. Could be synchronicity, which is Jungian rather than Freudian, but you get the idea. :)

Hi Amy,

I completely agree with your assessment of the way animals are kept for the amusement of some selfish people.

It should not be allowed by law.

How on gods green earth do these people get off thinking they can control a wild animal.

You do know that you can always tell someone who has owned a chimpanzee as they usually have a finger or two missing.

Chips bite and if people are dumb enough to have them in their houses then I say good on the chimp. Its just being natural.

What a world, their habitat is being destroyed and for what?

Hi molometer, Do you remember the story of the chimp that an individual owned in the states that tore the face off her best friend? The friend lived and underwent a face transplant. There was nothing left. The chimp was killed. The sad thing is that the events were unnecessary. The woman who adored her baby chimp was not prepared for his adulthood. I believe wild animals deserve to live the life they are intended...in their natural environment, not for the amusement of lonely, unprepared people. No wild animal is predictable, nor should they be expected to abide by human rules. They belong in their natural habitat. Anything else eventually results in terrible consequences for all involved. I count "terrible" as interfering in the natural life that all wild critters are entitled to. What humanity calls a "good life" is not the same destiny intended for animals.

Hi Amy,

Can you believe it. This kind of thing beggars belief.

"in jail and had been accused of cruelty to animals at some point. Why they allowed him to keep them"

Sometimes I wonder what the judges are thinking (if anything) the law truly is an ass.

So sad, everywhere the animals have not got a chance, shame.

The owner of the exotic critters had just gotten out of a year in jail and had been accused of cruelty to animals at some point. Why they allowed him to keep them, I'll never know, as the police were called 30 times over animals loose. It was hideous, though, since about 48 animals were killed and only 18 tranquilized and held in the zoo. Really an unnecessary tragedy.

Thanks Amy,

The Ohio thing sounds awful.

Why would someone do something like that;shocking.

jfay, Are you referring to the exotics that were set free by the owner, right before he ended his life in Ohio? It was very upsetting to me seeing all those beautiful wild animals in a mass grave, some of them classified as endangered species. I hope the laws change in those states that still allow individuals to keep exotic animals.

As always, molometer, your articles are unique, interesting, well-written and thought provoking. Thank you.

Ha ha you really made me laugh but you know that don't as you are sitting not 2 feet from me lol.

I think you might be on to something there about the Dyson being represented as a steamer trunk.

I did say to you to send it by ship. How weird and interesting.

Thanks for poking around in my dreams. Love you Pa

Breakfastpop so they let you out of the kitchen for a while?

Thanks for coming over to my place and leaving your comment.

Your dreams sound very interesting.

At one point all action and then lost.

Why not combine the two and have a dream about being lost on a treasure island with pirates?

I heard about a guy who went to a shrink and told him that.

I keep having this dream where sometimes I'm a Tepee and next I'm a Marquee.

The headshrinker shock he's head from side to side and said. "Your problem is you are two tense"

Now get back in that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans.

Maybe it's the fact that you are using Hubpages as a storage facility i.e the boxes, neatly stacked, clear and concise. I think of the mind as storage facility full of compartments, I think Hubpages it a remote storage facility.

Further more I will be going back to the Middle East at some point and the chest in your dream is actually my new Dyson - Joy!

Love your Child x

Interesting hub. If I tried to analyze my dreams I would probably really lose my mind. I dream every night and some of them are like Grade B action movies. When I am not ding that I am trying to find my way home!

Thanks Christopher you probable nailed it right there:)

I'm really happy that you like my writing.

I will write those books and what is more I will give you a copy for free.

As to when. I am planning to be writing all winter so should have something ready for spring.

I'm telling Natalie what you said ha ha.

There is such an elegant flow to your writing Mike. I do hope you write those books that you have written the titles to. I'd buy them all in a heartbeat!

I think the dream means that at some point in the day you saw a box/boxes and maybe heard conciously or otherwise about someone moving. Failing that, you've had enough with Natalie lording it around the place and wish she'd bloody move! LOL!!! (Obviously I'm just kidding Nat) Those are my non-expert observations.

Love you all!!
