I'd like to begin by saying that I really appreciate the dream interpretation that you did for me a week or so ago. It actually seemed right on target for my situation.
Anyway, getting down to business.
In the dream I had last night, I was staying in this hotel with a number friends on what I think was a 'band' trip (I'm in a marching band, and we frequently travel across states to get to competitions and whatnot). At some point after we were supposed to be asleep, we discovered this strange little tunnel in the wall that somehow led down into the local mall. We of course couldn't pass up an opportunity like that, so we ran around in this mall together for awhile. After some time, we decided we were hungry.. But the only place that was open to eat was McDonald's. I personally am not a huge fan of McDonald's, but ordered food nonetheless. My total rang up as 7.11$. Now, I don't know if this is your area of expertise, but the numbers '7' and '11' combined bear some significance to me. For about the last month, I have been seeing "7:11" on my clock every day, and every night. Anything you could tell me about that, if anything, would be appreciated. Anyway, after I ordered this food at McDonald's, I just left.. And went back to the hotel room to sleep.
I'm not for certain how, but the next day I was in England with my family. We were staying in some sort of condo looking place, and had invited 3 people to spend the evening with us. I didn't know them, and they didn't appear to be significant. The evening was boring for the most part.. To me, anyway. I really felt no calling to be involved in any of their jokes or discussions.. So I just sat, and waited for it to end.
Toward the end of the visit, we all started to hear this weird high pitches sound coming from upstairs. I immediately turned to my mother, and asked her what it was. She said that it must be a spirit of some kind, and I was gripped instantly with the raw terror that consumes me any time I am confronted with even the thought of such a thing. My mother was made up to go upstairs and ask this spirit or whatever to leave. She went upstairs, and after some time the noise stopped. She came back downstairs, and reinitiated a discussion with the guests. after about ten minutes, the noise started again, but this time it was in the hallway. The noise traveled up the hallway and into the kitchen where we were. An invisible force then opened the door, and I suppose stepped outside. We stared after it for a moment and then resumed conversation as if nothing had happened. Around 5-10 minutes later, the door opened again, and the invisible force stepped back into the room. After seeing this, I turned to my mother and asked her if she knew why it was here, or what it wanted. She refused to answer me.
Good morning, Espiara.
To try to decipher the dreams you've described here, we need to look at the emotions involved. Actually, that's true of any dream.
The band trip portion speaks of camaraderie. When you're with your peer group, you feel as if you enjoy life more, and that you can get away with more - hence the tunnel from the hotel room (where you're supposed to be) to the mall (where you're not supposed to be, but you enjoy it more there). Even here, though, you have some limited choices (McDonald's). This peer group is fun, but doesn't really nurture you - they're more or less fair-weather friends and after a while the menu of activities starts to seem bland.
Actually, interpretation of numbers is not one of my strong suits. For that set of numbers (7:11), I think of a time (obviously), a date (7/11), and the convenience store. I don't get into predictions if I can help it, so I'd probably guess that you have been making choices based upon convenience - which is certainly going to limit your choices.
The next part sounds like a completely separate dream - sometimes they can merge into each other like that. This one speaks of a feeling of separation, specifically from family members. You feel distant, bored, and it seems sometimes that they're from a different country.
It also reveals a slight feeling of betrayal. Your mother cannot protect you from your fears, and will not offer an explanation. The "spirit" in your dream is an unspecified fear - it has no face, so it probably speaks of nothing in particular - just a feeling in general.
Without knowing you better, I'd have to guess that feelings like this are rather normal. But if you're especially bothered by any of it, the decision to take action is in your hands. Doing something different as a break from routine is always nice to try anyway. Regarding your family, communication is the key.
