Example: I was in a house that I lived in many years ago. How I got there I do not know, but I saw myself sitting in an ordinary chair just behind the closed front street door. It was very quiet, and I was afraid, but I did not make any effon to move’ (Mrs J).
When we are an inactive observer in our dream, are all the time on the receiving end of dream action, or as in the example make no effon to move from discomfort, we are in a passive role.
If this occurs frequently in our dreams, we are probably passive in our waking life. This can gradually be changed by such techniques as active imagination.
It is our own emotions, fears and sexuality we are meeting in our dreams, so it is wise to take charge of our being rather than be a victim.
The following dream illustrates an active dreamer: ‘As I walked toward a house a number of demons or devils came at me menacingly, trying to stop me getting near the house. Although they made all the ghostly noises, I wasn’t at all afraid of them. I felt they were a damned nuisance, and to show them I meant business I grabbed one and with my right hand I gripped its flesh and squeezed. It started to squeak in pain and I squeezed harder’ (Clive J). ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
Dreams about activities and environments associated with childhood can be either motivating or discouraging, depending on the details of your dream and how you felt. For example, if you had a happy time playing with your dolls or a toy train set, your dream may simply be reminding you of the simple pleasure of letting your guard down from time to time to do nothing useful but play and relax. These kinds of dreams are particularly common if you have been extremely busy recently and haven’t had time to have fun. If, however, you were bored by the toy or activity in your dream, your unconscious may be urging you to put away childish things that don’t really give you stimulation and satisfaction, and to spend your time more productively.
Toys in dreams not only reflect your desire for more play, or urge you to grow up in some way, they can also suggest nostalgia for childhood that has been lost. Dolls are especially important because they so resemble the human form, and because children endow them with emotions and characters. Your dreaming mind may therefore use a doll to symbolize something or someone in your life. For example, if you stick needles or pins in the doll, or mistreat it in any way, this can represent negative feelings towards a particular person. Many doll dreams use the doll as a target for violence and, if this is the case, it could also refer to how the dreamer felt as a child when smacked emotionally or physically—like a helpless child. Dolls can also represent emotions that the dreamer would like to discharge on someone else, or the feeling of wanting to be a precious doll to someone. It may also express some undeveloped part of the dreamer’s personality and the need to relearn some childhood lessons we may have forgotten.
If you dreamed that you were in a playground surrounded by other children, were you enjoying yourself or did you feel left out? If you felt exhilarated, your unconscious may once again be signaling your need to have more fun in waking life, but if you felt aloof or alone from the other children, it could suggest that you prefer to play no part in the immature behaviour currently displayed by a group of people in your waking life.

Dreams of walking on broken glass, seeing or being surrounded by shards of glass or, even worse (and far from everyday), having to eat broken glass may represent cutting words or wounding experiences. The vivid image in the dream is designed to draw your attention to a pain that you may have been denying in waking life. It can also refer to something clear and pure that has been broken, suggesting the shattering of expectations. Typically, such dreams are linked to personal, rather than career, conflicts.
If you have such a dream, has something in your waking life changed dramatically and has that change caused you pain? If you are eating the glass, this suggests that you are taking in the painful experience, but it may be asked whether you are trying to swallow rather than acknowledge your pain.
If you are walking on glass, consider how your direction in life is causing you pain.... The Element Encyclopedia

Appearing on an altar: The hope of blessings from a “higher” power, including authority figures.
The Mesopotamians, Babylonians, and Hebrews all had religious sects that offered animals to their gods and goddesses to gain favor. Alternatively, guilt feelings related to something perceived as a sin, for which you wish to atone through an offering.
Partially eaten flesh: Exposure; feeling like you’re at the whims of some predator in your “territory.” Also a painfully blunt reminder of mortal limitations. Likely, your emotional state is jagged, torn, and overly agitated by these sensations. You need to regain some stability.
If more than one animal devours the carcass, this signifies someone being pulled in two distinct directions, both of which seem unhealthy. Two or more forces are fighting for dominion in your life, and none has your best interests at heart.

Divisions, often prejudicial, of race, color, or creed may also be indicated by such a dream (e.g., class consciousness, most significantly as practiced in India). (See also School, Seminar)....

To see crickets in your dream represents the need for introspection. You need to pay attention to Jiminy Cricket, your conscience. To hear crickets in your dream suggests that you are letting minor things bother you. To see a grasshopper in your dream foretells of enemies that will threaten your interest, disappointments in business or illness. To draw other people’s attention to a grasshopper signifies your indiscretion in dispatching your private business.
Because we associate grasshoppers and crickets with the lazy days of summer, to dream of them may be often be more positive than is suggested by the interpretations above; your dream may simply have been wish-fulfillment. It could also have been a comment on your grasshopper mind: the inability to focus on anything for long before turning to something else.

In dreams, a dish usually represents food that needs to be eaten now, and thus represents ideas or projects that should be tackled immediately. Jungians often see a drinking glass or wineglass as a symbol of the mythical Holy Grail, offering the dreamer spiritual sustenance. For Freudians, to dream of drinking from a glass expresses sexual desire, as like other receptacles, the glass symbolizes the female genitals. A broken drinking glass can represent loss of virginity. Food and drink are everyday items that regularly feature in dreams. In general, they are regarded as positive signs, but there are so many possible interpretations when food or drink—or eating and drinking—feature in a dream that a whole chapter has been devoted to the subject later on. See FOOD AND DRINK.... The Element Encyclopedia
The obvious meaning is stupidity. But also stubbornness, sexual energy, and vitality.
(In the language of the 16th century, “driving an ass” meant to arouse the penis.) Today this symbol is seen differently, since the proverbial stubbornness of the ass can be seen as his strength. He follows his own sense and possesses a sense of what is his. And in the pursuit of his urges, the ass can also be very smart (urges are not always stupid!).
According to the 2nd century dream interpreter Artemidorus: if you see an ass that is carrying a load, a burden is removed from you.
The most widely read book of the Middle Ages, Physiologus, relates the ass to the custom of castration.
Folklore: Luck in love.... Little Giant Encyclopedia
In the Bible, the ass carries Christ and is often thought to represent humbleness and humility but it can suggest the stubbornness arising perhaps out of long- entrenched habits and automatic behavior. Generally the donkey represents the plodding, longsuffering body and its basic needs, and a dream in which the dreamer is riding on a donkey hints at progress, even if it is slow. Do you feel impatient with your progress or overburdened? Are you refusing to give way on an important issue? Don’t forget about Eeyore, of Winnie the Pooh fame. Eeyore is a depressed and sluggish donkey. Are you feeling that way?
A dream that features a donkey braying implies that the dreamer is on a liberating journey from some kind of family or health trauma. A dream in which the donkey is tied up attests to the dreamer’s fierce will power that can ‘move mountains’ if directed towards a positive goal.
If the ass or donkey is being ridden by or pulling someone else, you may be feeling you are doing all the hard work in a relationship, or working like a beast of burden.... The Element Encyclopedia

To dream of embarrassment directly relates to embarrassment or potential embarrassment in life. You may need to do some self-reflection and figure out why you have insecurities about decisions, yourself, your sexuality, and your own strengths or weaknesses.... Dream Symbols and Analysis
To dream that you are embarrassed signifies hidden weaknesses and fears that you are not acknowledging in your waking life. You may feel that your self- confidence has been undermined. Such a dream also suggests insecurities about your sexuality. To dream that you are emotionless suggests that you are closing yourself off from those around you. You may be neglecting your own feelings and should start paying more attention to them.

The East indicates intensity and more introverted (inner-directed) thoughts.

(Clarity; Perception; Wisdom; Woman) In a dream, glass represents an early stage of a temporary anxiety, depression or stress. Such condition is less serious when glass is seen collected as broken chips in a container in a dream. Seeing through glass in a dream means uncovering something that is hidden. In a dream, all glassware, stained glass, engraved glass, or decorative glass of green, red or yellowish color represent a suspicious person, money earned from a suspicious source or suspicion about one’s wife, or even suspicion about one’s true children, or it could mean eavesdropping, affectation or hypocrisy. In a dream, any glass by-products represent people of knowledge, scholars, gnostics, sages or people of wisdom. Buying a glittering glass ornament, or a house made of mother of pearl in a dream means choosing the pleasures of this world over the everlasting joy of the hereafter, or it could mean disdaining to obey God’s commands, or it could mean becoming an apostate.
A drinking glass cup in a dream represents a woman. Receiving a glass of water in a dream means that one’s wife is pregnant.
An unknown kind of glass cup or a roughly cut drinking glass of water in a dream means that there is a fetus in the mother’s womb.
If the glass of water breaks and the water remains in the dream, it means that the mother may die after giving birth and the infant will survive. Ifthe water spills and the glass remains intact in the dream, it means that the fetus may die and the mother will survive.
The breaking of a glass in a dream also denotes the death of the one who is serving it.
If a sick person is given a glass of wine, or water, or a bitter apple drink, or a laxative in a dream such a drink represents his last cup.

If glass is shattered in your dream, it could symbolize breaking of both negative and positive things.
For example, it could represent the breaking of illusions, denial, and deception. On the more negative side, it could also represent the shattering of dreams or hopes that a person has been holding close to his heart. Old dream interpretation books say that looking through a clear glass is a sign of good luck and through a dirty glass symbolizes domestic difficulties.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
