Beloved Pet Attacks


A friend of mine gave me your address after she had written to you about a dream she had. Your analysis was right on. I am hoping that you could provide some insight into a recurring dream that I have been having lately. It has only happened a handful of times over the past few months, but each time it has disturbed me. While the dream has been different each time, a certain occurrence remains almost the same.

Just a little background. When I was growing up my family had a pet cat named Sam. He and I had an instant bond, as people with pets often do, and he was soon known as "my" pet more than any other of the family. I loved Sam, and I knew he loved me.

Now on to my dream:

The first time I had the dream I was alone. I was sitting on my couch and Sam was under the coffee table. He was in a playful mood and I was putting my hand down and quickly taking it away as I often did when I played with him. Suddenly, he got a malicious look in his eye. He jumped from under the coffee table and bit into my neck, his paws wrapped around me, claws digging into me. I was terrified! I tried to get him off without hurting him but knowing that I would have to hurt him to do so, but his grip was too strong...I woke up with a gasp at that point.

Last night I had another dream. I was sitting in a kitchen chair that my family had as I was growing up. I don't think I was in my childhood home, however. I remember there being someone around, a friend, but I cannot say who and I don't think it was very important in the dream. Sam was there again. But instead of attacking me, he jumped and attacked the back of the kitchen chair. Still I was terrified, it was almost as if he was attacking me and not the chair. I had the same feelings--not wanting to hurt him because I loved him and he didn't know any better because he was just a cat but needing to hurt him to make him stop. He had changed and I didn't know what to do. At this point I woke up.

I almost feel as if it's a trust issue, here's this thing I love but it ends up hurting me. I have been hurt plenty of times before, and I have a really hard time opening up and trusting men that I date. I just started a new relationship, but I cannot remember if the first dream I had was before or after it began. I am also growing apart from a friend that brought me much comfort when I was going through a bad spell. I don't feel that bad about it though, it just seems natural that we are going our own separate ways. Anyhow, I just thought this might help with the analysis.

This recurrence has been very disturbing and I am not sure what to make of it. Can you help?

Thank you,

Too Heavy

Once again, thank you for your time and insights. If you were interested, I think things are beginning to come together.

I've been under major spiritual reconstruction for a few years. It's been interesting but a challenge too. Your words made me think about things differently and helped me to have a dream that further explained what's going on.

In my dream, I ran into this man that I had a very brief relationship with three years ago. (In real life, I felt a deep connection with him that I've never felt with anyone else. He didn't feel the same so it ended. He was kind about the breakup but it hurt all the same. I haven't dated since.) This time though, he was about 100 lbs. heavier and he was completely in love with me. I was a little put off by his weight and I did NOT trust him at all. He was very affectionate and tried to hug me and hold my hand but I was embarrassed by his weight and afraid he'd leave me again so I was real stand offish towards him. (I don't understand why I had an issue with his weight. I tend to like my men on the burly side so it was an odd reaction for me.)

He didn't care. He knew exactly what I was feeling and gently persuaded me to walk arm and arm with him. I did but I wasn't about to let myself feel the same way about him that I did before. I stayed cold and unpersonable towards him.

After a time, he looked deeply at me, smiled, held my hands to his heart and said something along the lines of, "I'm ready for you. I'm just waiting for you to be open to having me." I stood there feeling ashamed for my behavior-being so closed off to someone who has so much love for me. Then, I woke up.

So, the lesson is: I need to learn to open up to people. (Friends, family, potential partners, etc.) I also need to continue letting go of all my negative and shame filled emotions. Which could easily require the assistance of my acupuncturist...and a good dream interpreter. :)

Thanks again!

Fire in the House

This dream was very realistic to me and frightened me quite a bit as the place where the dream takes place is my house in which I have always felt very safe.

The dream started with me in my room with a few friends having a sleepover type thing. My mum came in and said to me that our house was to go up in flames in an hour. It was strange as the whole dream, we knew that our house was going up in flames. My mates wrote me 'goodbye' letters and put them in an envelope ( I thought this might be to do with the fact I am leaving school in a month). I kept telling them they should come with me, because they would die if not, but they just would not budge and they went to sleep in my bed. I kept running down and putting things in the car and going back up to ask them if they wanted to come but they still wouldn't. I grabbed a box I have containing my diary, photos, things I want to keep and I grabbed the box of photos my parents have, I also grabbed the envelope. As soon as my family and I closed the front door the whole house burst into flames and I cried so hard. We drove off to where my dog was and I asked my mum if we had grabbed my dog's toys, which she had. We drove to my auntie's house to find my dog and her dog (which is dead in real life), playing together. We took my dog and drove back to the house to find fire engines etc. They told me that the only room that was not damaged was the study, which contained 2 computers and all my school work.

This dream freaked me out a bit because I knew the house was to go up, id lost two of my friends but my school work had not been damaged. I'd really like to know what this was all about.

Playing Dead

Hi Peregrin!

My dream last night felt really unusual to me. It just gave me an uncomfortable feeling when I woke up.

I was in some sort of class but it had a very casual feel to it. There were tons of people there. I could not even begin to count how many. We had to line up next to a cliff and were all holding hands. I was holding an old friend's, Ben, hand and some girl I cannot recall on the other side. Then someone pushed me and I fell from the cliff. I was pretty scared and I just kept falling and then this big strong man caught me at the bottom of the cliff. It was really weird because then the teacher was down there and she was says to me, "oh we're playing a trick on the class. They all think you're dead but you're not. Let's keep it going as long as possible and try to shock them as much as possible."

So I was supposed to wait until the opportune moment to come back and trick the whole class. So then I had to go into my room to wait. It was just I and someone else in this tiny room. This room actually was my childhood playroom that used to be at my old house. Then my little sister ran in and "found" me and I tried to catch her before she could run up the stairs and tell everyone I was still alive but I could not catch her. So I chased her up the stairs but it was too late. Everyone knew I was alive by then. But when I went up the stairs it wasn't at the school or cliff anymore, it was my old house. My mom had painted everything differently and she was cooking dinner and on the phone. She saw me and was like ohh hi you're here.

And that's it. It just felt like a really weird dream. Anywho that is all I think.

Meeting the Family

Thank you for taking the time to help me interpret my dream... I had had it several times and in color.

I am walking through what looks to be a "Little House on the Prairie" scene, but rather in modern times with paved roads... Kinda like the old country you would see in the text books, like Europe or something. I go through the door with my friend Vincent and to my left there is a room with 2 barrels of hay and to my right is a room with green sofas. We both walk through the hallway together to find a long table with lots of people being happy and cheerful and eating Italian food. They act like they know Vincent and are happy to have me along. (Note: I have never even met Vincent's family in real life) He sits at the end of the table and I shyly sit to the left of him and someone serves me and him a plate of spaghetti with meatballs. He sits there and looks into my eyes and it is as if there is no body else in the room but me and him and he is trying to make me laugh and I am trying to be polite and trying NOT to laugh coz I am eating with a bunch of people I don't know, and he just continues to look into my eyes and in my dream it feels like time is standing still, and he just continues to sit there and smile at me. After leaving the table, we walk through the hall way and find our way to a room on the right with a blue blanket on the bed where we lay down. He begins kissing my forehead and we end up falling asleep in each other's arms. THEN I WAKE UP...

..And every time I have had this dream it feels so real and when I wake up I find myself looking for Vincent, like a dork.

I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. Thanks so much

Another year over

Good morning, dreamers.

I have been rather lazy about new dream requests this year.  I'll try to take up the slack in 2013.

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday!

Pleasant dreams,

Tiger, Decapitation, Car

I was in a car with my mother and sister. The car was stopped and the windows were open. We were waiting for a tiger to cross the road when all of a sudden the tiger jumps in through the driver's window and into the back seat and bites my head. my head was in its mouth and it went completely dark. I woke up kicking my feet cause I thought I was dead because I woke up in complete darkness under all of my blankets. I don't know if this means anything?

odd one out
