Hi everyone!! I had the strangest dream last night. It terrified me. It was one of those dreams that feel so real. I woke up because I was hearing myself actually screaming while I was still sleeping. Ok, here it goes.... I don't know where I was, nothing around me was familiar but I felt comfortable. My eye was really hurting me. I go in front of a mirror, get real close, put my finger on my top eyelid and pull it up.... I see two ticks stuck to my eyeball!! I was actually feeling the pain!! Anyway, I turn around, pick up a tweezer and start pulling them off. I was trembling but I finally got them both off. Then I closed my eye and rubbed it and it started feeling really wierd. I can't explain the feeling but I knew I should look in the mirror again. I turn to face the mirror with my eyes closed because Im scared of what I'm going to see. I open my eyes and...... SPIDERS start coming out of my eye!!! This is the point where I woke up literally screaming. Anyone have any idea what that dream meant??? Anybody ever have a dream as strange and scary as that?

I'll have a go at interpreting this dream for you. Only you can know of course, whether something which I'm about to say is related to this, as it appears to be of a personal nature to me. All three main objects, your eye, the ticks and the spiders work together to complete the meaning of the dream. Your eye appeared injured or closed and you felt the pain, suggesting that you refuse to see the truth in something, or that you're avoiding intimacy. It could be that your feelings of hurt, pain or sympathy are being demonstrated here and indeed, from the outside, it would appear, from the presence of the two ticks in your eye, that you are in a relationship or situation of some sort which is sucking all the energy out of you. Are you having to work hard on a particular relationship, or situation at present, and is it leaving you feeling exhausted at your efforts? The spiders indicate that you're feeling like an outsider or that you need to keep your distance and avoid an alluring and tempting situation. The spider is symbolic of feminine power, or could represent a powerful force protecting you against your own, self-destructive behaviour. So, you now have to ask yourself a few questions. Are you seeking the power to escape a situation or relationship which is exhausting you... you may be putting extra effort into maintaining a relationship/situation... effort which is not appreciated by others. Are you avoiding an intimacy or do you refuse to see the truth in a situation/relationship which you believed to be otherwise? I feel here that the "pain" represents a truth which you don't want to accept or believe about somebody with whom you have a relationship, or maybe somebody at your place of work, or learning. You have given this relationship/project one hundred per cent and are not getting anything much back out of it for your efforts, to the point where it's exhausting you, so the spiders probably tell you that either you have the power to change this, or walk away from it. I would think, as they were walking out of your eye, that the latter applies. You either need to walk away from a bad, maybe one-sided or harmful relationship, or change your job, learning system, whatever, before you're too exhausted to try any more. Thus, you will save yourself from virtual self-destruction. I hope this helps, and I feel that you might find some sense in it somewhere along the line, but as I said... I don't know your life-pattern. Nobody does, except you, so from what I've transcribed to be the meaning of your dream, you must draw your own conclusions. I would be fascinated to know how close this is to your own interpretation. Brightest Blessings.

WOW!! That was amazing. You're truly gifted. You were right in alot of sections. How come I couldn't put that together. The way you explained it made sense to me. I am going through an unbelievably hard time. I have been for three years now. But it is not something I can walk away from because it has to do with my beautiful little girl and I will never give up the fight until justice is done Thanks you so much.

I guess you need to understand that dreams don't always mean what they appear to mean. If one has a "scary" dream like yours, then it usually means that you're unhappy with something about yourself, in your waking life. The objects you see in your dream carry meanings which can be put together. You probably didn't work it out for yourself because you didn't understand that those things that appear "horrific" to you, are really not that bad that you can't do something about them if you know what they are. I'm really pleased I could be of help here, and that it might help you to find a way around whatever is worrying you about your little girl. Three years is a long time and a lot of energy spent, and you'd do well to take a few deep breaths, air mixed with perhaps a little lavender. Lavender will relax you and help you to clear your mind ready to approach the situation without expending so much of your precious energy. I certainly agree that you can't walk away from this situation until it's resolved. Good luck in your fight for justice my friend, but don't allow it to take your body over. Quietly and stealthily is the way to hunt! :) You're more than welcome to my interpretation. I enjoy translating dreams and have had quite a lot of success with it. Please let us know how things pan out, won't you? Brightest Blessings of love and light in your quest. x

Wow That was great how that was explained to you. I only remember having dreams once in a while, About 10 years ago i had a dream that has effected my life. for the better. what happened i dreamed that i saw this man that i knew was lying in a big pool of water, He had his arms outstretched like he needed help. He never said any thing just was laying their. He was the first person that i ever fell in love with when i was 14. We broke up because his family moved away. we never stayed in touch. I was 45 when i had the dream and i started looking for him. I found him and we have been together ever since. we got married 6 years ago, and I have been happier that i could have ever thought i would be. I never thought about what the dream meant. I just thought he was in trouble and needed help. and now that i think about it. It wasn't just him that needed help it was both of us. We where both lonely, and alone. God gave me that dream so we could be together again.

I had a very strange dream last week that I never experienced before. I dreamed I was crying in my dream and ended up wake up crying. It felt sooo real... The strangest thing is my hubby and I were dreaming the exact same thing...
