I had a dream just minutes ago when I was napping. It involved seeing the sea with huge waves that it caused flooding to our home. Then there was this super friendly dog called "Teeth" because he likes to bite everyone he sees. In this dream, he has always bitten my hand, or more like attempted to swallow my hand but it didn't hurt, it was just uncomfy. And then someone close to me commited suicide later on as he is being watched by other people close to me as well. It was very painful for me. I was wailing in my dream and I just found myself crying as I woke up. Very weird...I wonder what Dream Moods will say about these things.
All I know right now is that I am tired, I can't wait to pack and be on our next vacation. True, I have my apprehensions about this particular trip because I'm scared of the whale sharks (I am scared of any sea creature that is bigger than my head) and I'll be going with 18 other people I've never met before. I'm the type who likes to travel either with just my hubby, my family, or a small group of friends, or at least people I am familiar with. Being with new people makes me anxious and gets my defenses so high I either end up being the shy and timid one in the group, or the life of the party. My extreme sides show and when that happens, I get uncomfortable. I've been so busy just hanging around the house for several months now, traveling on weekends, and seldom seeing people. I've been so comfy just feeling neutral and happy all the time, that I'm afraid this trip will get me out of my comfort zone. So perhaps, this is why I am dreaming such weird things.
To see the sea in your dream, represents your unconscious and your transition between your unconscious and conscious. It also often represents your emotions. The dream may also be a pun on your understanding and perception of a situation. "I see" or perhaps there is something you need to "see" more clearly. Alternatively, the dream may indicate a need to reassure yourself or offer reassurance to someone. It brings about hope, a new perspective and a positive outlook on life no matter how difficult your current problems may be.
To see a gentle flood in your dream, indicates that your worries over a certain matter will soon be swept away.
To see a dog in your dream, symbolizes intuition, loyalty, generosity, protection, and fidelity. The dream suggests that your strong values and good intentions will enable you to go forward in the world and bring you success. Alternatively, it indicates a skill that you have ignored or forgotten. (Could this be referring to my social skills? I may have forgotten how to be around people again since I'm such a loner the past several months or was it 2 years already?) If the dog is vicious and/or growling, then it signifies some inner conflict within yourself. It may indicate betrayal and untrustworthiness.
To see a happily barking dog in your dream, symbolizes pleasures and much social activity. If the dog is barking ferociously, then it represents your habit of unnecessary barking at people and the situations around you. It could also mean unfriendly companions. To dream that a dog bites your on the leg, suggests that you have lost your ability to balance aspects of your life. You may be hesitant in approaching a new situation or have no desire to move forward with your goals. Alternatively, it symbolizes disloyalty.
To see someone commit suicide in you dream, highlights your concerns for that person. Also consider what characteristics and qualities in that person you may be trying to "kill" and annihilate in your own self. (This person who committed suicide in my dream is a shy and timid one. I guess deep down, I do want to bring back my old sociable self.) Perhaps you hope that you are not like that person in some way and are making attempts to get rid of those traits within your own self.
To dream that you are crying, signifies a release of negative emotions that is more likely caused by some waking situation rather than the events of the dream itself. Your dream is a way to regain some emotional balance and a way to safely let out your fears and frustrations. In our daily lives, we tend to ignore, deny, or repress our feelings. But in our dream state, our defense mechanisms are no longer on guard and thus allow for the release of such emotions.
To wake up crying, represents some suppressed hurt or previous trauma that is coming up to the surface. (Yeah, I did experience some form of emotional trauma recently and I've been trying to keep my cool) You can no longer suppress these emotions. They need to be dealt with head on.
