ADRIFT

This is indicative of a problem you have been unable to solve, or unwilling to face up to, and is a straightforward obstacle dream.

If you reached land safely, you will overcome your dilemma, but if you fell out of the boat or were upset by rough weather, it is a warning of serious difficulty due to indecision.

If you were rescued in your dream, or managed to swim to safety, success will follow hardship. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

CHEWING GUM 

For several years now, I have been receiving similar dreams from people all over the world.

The dreams are almost exactly the same and involve the dreamers’ inability to get rid of chewing gum.

The more they attempt to remove it from their mouths the larger and more unmanageable it becomes. In the dream they become frustrated and panicky because the harder they try to pull, the larger the mass becomes in their mouths. This dream suggests that the dreamer may experience frustration in daily life due to a large scale or standing insolvable problem that leaves them feeling powerless.

The dream represents an inability to digest or to process information or a dilemma. It also suggests that the dreamer is not able to express him or herself effectively and that repetitive and ineffective verbal expressions are typically used. Chewing gum in dreams may be a sign of childlike behaviors, vulnerability, powerlessness, and a need for nourishment.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

FAIRY

These mystical, magical creatures are a part of European, Roman and Greek folklore. They are known for their fickle nature, for their ability to grant wishes and for their whims of trickery. Fairies have a capacity for malice, their tools are wands and rings and they can generally be found in groups of three.

The idea of three fairies is at times interpreted as representing childhood, adulthood and old age, or birth, life and death. Fairies may be called the “mistresses of magic” and they may symbolize the extraordinary powers of the human spirit and our fundamental capacity of imagination. Alternatively, we may want to hold on to beliefs in magical powers that will save us from ourselves. In order to be well adjusted human beings, we need to adapt to our environment and accept our limitations.

The fairy in your dream may be interpreted according to the details of the dream and according to your current issues or developmental dilemmas. Is the fairy in your dream giving you hope by encouraging you to be creative and resourceful, or is she playing tricks on you and perpetuating your desire to be saved by magic?...

GARAGE

This is an interesting symbol and many people have requested that it be added to the dictionary. Traveling is very common theme in dreams and traveling in a car is the most common. Traveling in a vehicle generally can represent our journey through life -- or a portion of our life’s journey.

If in your dream you find yourself in a garage or a parking lot, two varying connotations can be made. Please consider the content of your dream, the mood in it, and your current dilemma or situation in life.

The parked car could represent a period of inactivity and indecision in your life.

The dream could be pointing out that you have been idol for a period of time and that it may be a good time to “get a move on.” The more positive interpretation of this dream may be that the parked car is symbolic of a reflective period or mood. You may be in “park” for a while so that you can rest, relax, regroup, and think things over.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

GOD

Regardless of whether we believe in a God or not, all of us have been exposed to the idea of a supreme and omnipresent being.

The dilemma over the existence of God is probably the most common dilemma of them all. Everyone from time to time will have a dream about “God.” Its symbolism depends on the dreamer. God in our dreams can be considered a positive or self affirming symbol. It represents truth, purity, and love. It also represents the creative energy which is abundant in all of us (whether we know it or not).

For a certain number of people, in the dream state, God may have negative connotations.

For them God could represent eternal punishment, damnation, and invoke massive amount guilt. Most religions consider dreams to be a pathway to God or to the spiritual realm. Through dreams we have an opportunity to have experiences which are not available during the day. Our unconscious mind may be more capable of connecting to the eternal flow of spirit and it may be the dwelling place of the soul. See Also: Jesus... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

HOTEL

All dwelling places generally represent the dreamer’s psychological, emotional, or spiritual condition.

The dream may reflect a current reality, issue, or dilemma and attempt to bring the dreamer into greater self-awareness. Because a hotel is a transitory dwelling, it suggests a time away from one’s responsibilities or routine. As a dream symbol it could reflect a need for rest and reflection. Depending on the details of the dream, specific information can be ascertained.

For example, if the hotel is luxurious it suggests prosperity and positive decision-making. However, if the hotel is rundown and inadequate, it may reflect a time of uneasiness and depravation. Whether the hotel in your dream represented a retreat or escapism is for you to determine by examining your current daily reality. Finally, a hotel may refer to a temporary stage in life or be a form of compensation with which the dreamer eases the anxiety and stress experienced during the day.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

NUMBERS

Interpreting numbers that we see in dreams may be difficult. Their meaning my be very personal, such as a reflection of financial concern or any other area of daily life represented by numbers. One way to interpret numbers is to try to see how they are specifically related to you.

(E.g.

If you have the number 25 in your dream. Your house number is 12 while your parent’s number is 13. Together they make 25, and this dream could have been addressing issues in regard to you and your parents.) On the other hand, numbers in dreams may represent global concepts and point to collective dilemmas. Some interesting interpretations would include the following: See also: Zero. Even numbers might represent the feminine while odd numbers the masculine. 2 - psychic development and doubling; something new coming up with the potential for building. 3 - the trinity; it is an active or a process number (something is going on in the psyche). 4 - completion and femininity. 5 - life force; refers to the five fingers and five appendages of the body. 7 - sacred number in Christianity and Judaism; the highest stage of illumination and spirituality. 12 - represents time and may mark the most important cycles in life....

1- When a child recognises that he or she is not conforming to what is expected, the threat of punishment is often present. In later life, when there is fear of retribution from an external source, we will often dream of being punished.

PARADISE

(1) Paradise may represent a desire to return to the innocent problem- free simplicity of early childhood.

However, this is wrongheaded, because it is unrealistic. The garden of Eden prior to Adam’s ‘fall’ represents the oneness and harmony of all things when all things are still unconscious. With the rise of conscious thinking, distinctions and dilemmas arise, and the agonizing ‘Should I do this or that?’ (= Adam’s eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil). A desire to return to childhood in a dream is neurotic: in it reality has been ousted by fantasy - because reality was too painful. What particular reality’ (i.e. experience) are you trying to blot out?

(2) A more realistic option is that paradise represents a desire to achieve in the psyche the balance and wholeness that have been present latently and potentially from the beginning.

(3) If your dream contains, not just a paradisal feeling, but an actual physical representation of the garden of Eden (e.g. with four rivers dividing it into four quarters), this may be an instance of (2) above. See also Mandala.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
