Mis Suenos Locos


I have wild dreams (suenos).

I've had dreams about God Frogs and mermaid ghosts.

So, I bought a dream interpretation book,
to see what kind of wackiness my subconscious was trying to tell me.





Apparently dreams are "symbols for self-understanding."

We'll see about that.

Some things might be better left un-understood.
Misunderstood?



The other night I had a dream where I received tickets while parked at a gas station.


A gas station.
Tickets.




I looked up "tickets" in the book.
Tickets are an opportunity for a new experience, an airline ticket, a movie, ticket, etc.

If you get a speeding ticket,
you might be going too fast
and need to take time out to relax
and unwind in your life.

But, I got a PARKING ticket. Maybe I'm going too SLOW?



Also, in the same dream, I ended up on a swingset, swinging.
So, I looked that up in the book.
Turns out I might need balance in my life if I'm swinging from emotion to thought.
meh, sure, maybe.




My 12 yr old told me he had a dream the other night where people were getting shot...
and where they were shot, their body turned into an octopus.





He's truly my son.

I'm so proud.

But, I looked up octopus in the dream book...and it says something about going in too many directions without control. And shooting is losing life force...

Yikes.

Maybe it's best not to read too much into dreams...
or perhaps just to interpret them in my own way.

But this is sure fun.

I won't even get into my dreams where tornadoes are chasing me...





Do you have any dream symbols you want me to look up in my book?

Do you know about the old wives' tale that says if you dream of fish, someone you know is pregnant.... it's true!!! it happens to me all the time... and oh my, I have dreams of tornados too... i always say i will die in a tornado... i am very fearful of them.

I wonder what it means to dream of finding millions of hidden M&Ms (specifically the peanut kind) under the foundation bricks of a little town's townhall. That was the most recent weird dream I had that I can actually recall.

sassy stephanie said...

I always have sex dreams. Hmm...maybe I'm just always horny.

Screwed Up Texan said...

My husband has this dream where he is standing next to a cactus and picks up one shiny dime. What the heck does that mean?!?

Sometimes I have dreams where I am laying on my bed and there is some cute guy...ah never mind. DONT interpret that dream. lol

Sprite's Keeper said...

I always have the same recurring dream where someone is trying to get into my house and the door is always unlocked and I'm running for the door to lock it before the intruder opens it.
How about that?

Valarie Lea said...

Hmmm when I was younger I always had this dream that there were all these people floating around. Actually they reminded me of thing 1 and thing 2, only pink. They were just staring at me. Then I would always have this weird feeling like I was being watched after I woke up.

Um do you think I was abducted by aliens???

last night i dreamed i was running an at home daycare (ok i have done that recently) and was invaded by ss troops so we were in enemy territory now. then i sent secret word to our troops. they did a fly by and i had to make a big cross in the yard with playground sand so they could see us. an officer called me but because we thought the phones were tapped he talked in code: Captain Kirk and Captain Janeway Live Action Rescue dolls from the Star Ship Enterprise were to be delivered to my home special delivery as per my order on ebay. Next I had to stop all my parents from leaving when they brought their kids for daycare. (I was scared they would be separated during the rescue attempt.) So I was whispering in their ears while I covered their mouths so they would not blurt anything out.

Thank goodness my hubby called and woke me up!

Mama Dawg said...

The ones that wake me up are the ones of falling...typical.

The others? Are kind of self explanatory.

Mama Dawg said...

But I know who to turn to if I need an interpretation!

Angela in Louisiana said...

When I was a kid, I constantly dreamed of being chased by dinosaurs, lol.

Cristin said...

Growing up, I was blind in ALL of my dreams.... it was very scary, there was usually someone of something I was trying to get away from, but I couldn't see... ok, I'm getting creeped out remembering those dreams... I think they stopped when I started doing drugs, and thankfully they didn't return when I stopped with the drugs....

Screwed Up Texan said...

Wow Rhea, some of these responses are hilarious!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I dream we move into a different house a lot.

Krystyn said...

My mom had a dream about very colorful fish..it meant somebody near her was preggo...sure enough, there was!

Jen said...

I want to know what it means when a person has crazy love dreams about old boy friends.

Sally-Ann said...

I don't dream all that much, but when I do......
One of my most vivid dreams happened when I was a teenager. Does anyone remember the blue light specials at KMart? They had a flashing blue light my them - at least in Australia they did! I dreamed that I was being chased down the road by a flashing blue light from KMart. It didn't catch me, but it sure was sneaky, I couldn't hide anywhere!!!

Kat said...

I am pretty sure that I dream. But I never remember them. I wonder why. And the ones that I do remember...are strange beyond belief. Like that one about Teddy Kennedy.

And I think your parking ticket is very interesting. Indeed...

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Oh I have wild dreams and no way do I want an interpretation LOL!

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Ooh, this is super interesting! Okay, the same thing happens in my dreams, but I doubt this will be in your book, And, I think I know why I dream it this way anyway.
If I'm in a dream kissing a guy, I cannot open my mouth. Sometimes just a little bit, but my mouth will not open wide enough to kiss properly. Let's see if THAT's in your book!
The reason I think this happens is because sleeping with the cPAP machine, I can't sleep with my mouth open. If I open my mouth, all this forced air comes whooshing out.

Justine :o )

Angie's Spot said...

I need to get this book. There are WAY TOO MANY things I would have to list for you to look up. LOL!

Susie said...

I always have the dream that I have to go back to grade school or high school and take or retake a class that I missed. What does that mean?

TattooedMinivanMom said...

This is probably pretty self explanatory, but what does it mean when your trying to run away from someone/something chasing you and your feet feel like heavy weights you can't lift?

My ankles are NOT fat by the way...

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Too funny... I never remember my dreams. Or maybe I'm not having any dreams? I'd hate to see what your book says about that!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Mariah said...

I keep having the same dream about a house with many levels and diffrent colored doors and bedding. I always go in the red door.

Help.

Swirl Girl said...

Rhea dear - sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

...and then again , sometimes it's not!

LOL

that tornado picture is awesome!

Heather said...

What does it say about tornados. I dream about them all the time!

Tammy Howard said...

I've had that book for years - because I often feel like my dreams are trying to tell me something. Usually I can figure it out, but when I can't I seek a little guidance.

The Blonde Duck said...

I always have weird dreams...

Christy said...

Very interesting - and I love the images accompanying the post.

CrystalChick said...

Last night there were two ships and a pirate in my dream. And a teacher that my daughter in school years ago died.
And a bunch of other weird things too.
I have a couple dream books but haven't worked with them in some time. It's neat though!

Stu said...

Ugh I totally have weird dreams too, always with broken stairs...seriously what does that mean???

Stereos and Souffles said...

I have the same dream every month or so where alligators are trying to get into my house, but they never end up reaching me. Or someone is on the lose hurting random people that I don't know but they can never catch me. Hmmmm.

Shannon said...

My most bizzar-o dreams I have are when I lose teeth. What does that mean???

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I have totally whacko bizarre dreams. They're even worse now because of the meds I take.
As for the swinging dream, maybe you just need to swing. I did this past weekend, at our campground there was a playground. It was so much fun!
