Attending a wake asks you to eliminate the negative influences of the person whose wake you are attending or a parent / other significant person of the same gender. This influence is holding you back from doing something that will help you develop in a positive way.
To wake up in a dream is very positive and symbolizes having your eyes opened to the reality of your life. This is invariably associated with reaching a level of spiritual awareness that puts you on track for achieving your life purpose. To be woken up is a request for you to wake yourself up to the spiritual reality of your life.
To bang your head off a wall is a warning of stroke. It signifies this as walls are a common symbol for the heart and circulatory system and the dream is coupling it with damage to the head. Stroke is a circulatory problem that damages your head.
A dividing wall is also about your heart with the emphasis being on how you separate yourself from others. You have erected a dividing wall between you and your neighbor – literally you and others who are close to you.
To dream of a wallet stolen means that you do not normally share your feelings and your sense is that it is pointless. Your thinking is along the lines of it does not matter what I give I’ll get nothing back in return. This is almost certainly due to some past conditioning where you feel this happened. Do people know the real you or only what you choose to show on the surface?
Washing clothes can represent anxieties with regard to the subject matter of the dream.
Washing your back whether deliberately or inadvertently is about the need to cleanse some baggage you are carrying from the past. For example, a window cleaner spilling soapy water on your back is a request to cleanse issues from the past.
Rain is about letting life in, and being caught in the rain in a dream is very positive. What the rain is hitting can be significant. For example, rain falling onto a car engine asks you to let life into your heart.
Polluted water symbolizes toxins in your blood stream. These dreams will usually indicate what foods or drinks are causing the toxins to get there. You are being asked to cut them down or cut them out altogether.
Water running down the walls or leaking from the ceiling of a house or building is indicative of your body being dehydrated. This is common, particularly if you were drinking alcohol the night before.
If a boat with two men in it is getting knocked into a cliff by the waves, it means that an event involving your father (men) when you were age two (two men) in your past (behind you), knocked you to the extent that you began rationalizing (cliff) everything in life (water).
Waves usually indicate turmoil.
Waves washing over the top of a bus indicate you rationalize, due to some previous emotional turmoil. The mistaken concept is that closing your heart and retreating into your head will protect you from similar pain in the future.
A big wheel or Ferris wheel can also symbolize your heart but is also likely to be about being caught on a karmic cycle. This is where you have failed to repay your karmic debts in a previous life and have the potential to miss the opportunities presented to you in this life also.
To dream of white alone can indicate you strive for perfection to such an extent that you are rarely impressed with your own efforts as it is almost impossible to reach the exceptionally high standard you set for yourself. For example, if you were to begin oil painting you would be overly critical of your first attempts because they are not good enough to hang in a museum. White in this context indicates a proud, rigid, judgmental immaturity - a should be, controlling attitude. While you are hard on yourself you are also hard on others, as it is unlikely they will reach your standard either. Dreams point this out in an effort to get you to realize your controlling nature so that you become easier on yourself. Do not start by trying to be easier on others, as when you slip at this, you will be even more critical of yourself because you did not reach that goal on your first attempt either! When you ease up on yourself and become more tolerant, that will eventually spill over onto others and they will benefit. The dream invariably shows you where this part of your nature began.
White mixed or associated with other colors purifies and refines their meaning. To dream of navy with white is an attempt to heal your negative philosophy of life (navy) by giving you faith and confidence in the future.
The room the window is in, or where it looks out to is significant. For example a bedroom window can represent outlook on your sexual identity. A kitchen window can represent your general outlook, if that is the room you normally sit in with a close friend when they visit, and you share a cup of tea or coffee. A window looking out to the front of the house can be about your outlook on the future. A window looking out to the back of the house or back garden can be your outlook on the past. A narrow window looking onto the back garden indicates you have a narrow view on the past or a restricted outlook due to your past. These dreams ask you to improve your view as a way of dealing with the other issues in the dream. Do not just choose to see what you want. Life will be better if you can let go of this.
A bay window, particularly if it is in your mother’s house, represents the womb. Houses represent the body and here you are symbolically in a location in your mother’s body (her house) which extends out to the front – the womb. The dream is showing you how you are still affected today by something from far back in the past. Because these dreams are about being born they often include symbols that indicate something precious you brought with you on this life journey. It is something that, for you, gives expression of your soul and connects you to life.
If the woman has a title, speaks with authority or offers a gift she is a guide / angel. Guides often take up a position in front of you just to your right or slightly elevated. A guide is the only infallible character in a dream. They commonly demonstrate their purpose by action rather than speaking. However, if they do speak always heed their advice.
If the woman is someone you know but do not have a direct relationship with, it is often to show you that you have the same trait that they are displaying in the dream or that they have in reality. For example, if the trait is confidence, the dream is attempting to boost your confidence with regard to the subject matter of the dream. It could also be a negative trait. If the person is always angry, it shows that you too have this trait and you are being asked to acknowledge it and eliminate it.
It is very common for a woman to stand in for your mother. In this case, like earlier, she is likely to be either healing an issue with your mother, or to demonstrate a trait that you picked up by copying her or due to your relationships with her. Usually the dream is asking you to eliminate this trait, as it is affecting you negatively with regard to the subject matter of the dream.
Women can also represent expression of feelings as your heart is governed by female energy. In fact difficulty with emotional expression is often connected to issues with your mother as it is through her unconditional love that you learn to love yourself and stay in touch with your heart. If this was lacking from your mother it will show up in your dreams. If mother put a price on her love you may dream of a woman sitting at a cash register.
A woman can also represent your female side. If you are having sex with a woman in a dream you are being asked to get intimately in touch with your female side. This is regardless of your gender. Your female side governs your philosophy of life, inner world, feelings, compassion and various spiritual abilities. If any of these are lacking, your dreams will encourage you to discover that aspect of yourself.
