The dream I had the other night got me to thinking about specific items and locations that pop up in my dreams. This particular landmark is a huge oak tree that is flat on top with a town on top of the tree. The Oak Tree symbolizes: longevity, stability, strength, tolerance, wisdom and propsperity. To see a City signifies a sense of community and your social environment. The fact that the city is on top of the tree I guess would be a positive social environment.
Also, in my dreams, I find myself in bathrooms a lot. In one particular dream town, the bathroom is a gathering place where we all share what we have and help each other out. Most times I just end up walking through a door and find myself in a bathroom, usually huge ones with between 10-30 toilets, showers, 15-20 sinks, both with and without actual stalls. These are interesting, so I will copy them here verbatim:
"To dream that you are in the bathroom, relates to your instinctual urges. You may be experiencing some burdens/feelings and need to "relieve yourself". Alternatively, it may symbolize purification and self-renewal. You need to cleanse yourself, both emotionally and psychologically.
To dream that you are in a public restroom with no stalls, signifies your frustrations about getting enough privacy. It may also indicate that you are having difficulties letting go of old emotions. If you reveal these feelings, you are afraid that others around you will judge and criticize you. "
"To see a toilet in your dream, symbolizes a release of emotions or getting rid of something in your life that is useless"
Hrm. To see a Sink represents your feelings and how you control your emotions, and taking a Shower in clear fresh water indicates spiritual or physical renewal or the need to wash a burden out of your life. It doesn't say anything about just seeing a shower, though. Huh. This is some good stuff to keep in mind.
The fact that most of my dreams take place at Night represents major setbacks and obstacles in achieving [my] goals. *scratchs head* You know, for the life of me I can only remember a tiny handful of dreams that take place during the day . . . .
Oh, one last one. Schools, I end up at schools a lot. To dream that you are in School signifies feelings of inadequacy and childhood insecurities that have never been resolved. . . . uh-huh . . . . It may also relate to anxieties about preformance and abilities. . . . okay . . . . You may also be going through a "spiritual learning" experience. Alternatively a dream that takes place in school may be a metaphor for lessons you are learning in your waking life. I think I like that one best. lol
Well, that's it for Lizzy's Dream Landmarks. I think some of them, like the city on a tree, also serve to let me know that I am in fact dreaming, cuz I think to myself, "Hey, I've dreamed of that before." In light of the new info gained from researching the meaning of bathrooms in dreams, I think I'm going to go ahead and log off now and go preform a personal cleansing. Maybe then I'll feel like tackling the day's chores. ^_^
