18 March 2012 – Sadness

Published March 19, 2012 by Emma


I am sat in my house feeling extremely tired.  I need to sleep however I am lonely and in need of a hug.  I can’t call on my ex husband as he has a new partner and I am mourning the loss of my boyfriend.  An Ex-friend visits me baring yet more clutter-some gifts.  I get annoyed because I am trying to de-clutter my house.  Then I realise she is four months pregnant.  As she stands up she stumbles and I can see she is clearly out of her face on the copious amounts of prescription drugs that she is taking.  She speaks about some making tape in the back of her car which, from a distance looks like a wooden table.  Then she leaves.

I go back into my house to see my estranged Uncle putting on a DVD.  I turn to my Aunt, who is sitting in an armchair, to introduce the man as my Uncle.  Then I laugh because she already knows him, she was married to him once.  I notice by the TV, discs are not in their cases.  I have stern words with my daughter for not taking care of them.  The noise, clutter and commotion is too much.  I decide to go outside and look at the tall house plants that were planted in pots, in memory of my boyfriend.  I plant a seedling into of the plant’s, pot.  Although he isn’t dead, I am mourning him and his exit from my life.  This feels so sad but the plants are very comforting and make me feel close to him.  I feel a sense of emptiness.  There is no time to feel like this, I must go and see my son perform at the theatre.  I am in row 4, seat number 31.  However there are two portly, rough-looking women who insist that all reservations were cancelled, and thus refuse to move.  After having stern words with them, I decide to take another seat in the same row.  I then realise that the only view is of the wall, there are terrible seats, too high up.

I can’t see the stage at all and am reluctant to sit through a whole play that I can’t see, just to hear my son speak two lines.  I decide to leave then in at the stage door to ask my son if he also wants to leave because it looks very cold where he is.

There seem to be some significant parts of this dream that you’d probably expect me to analyse individually such as Clutter, The Ex-Friend, DVD’s, The Ex Husband and The Boyfriend.  However those aspects of the dream are most certainly carried over from situations in my waking life and pretty much represent what is going on for me at present.  So I have looked at the other aspects of my dream that stand out to me.

UNCLE – To see your uncle in your dream represents some aspect of your family heritage and trait. It also symbolizes new ideas and emerging awareness. Consider the idiom “say uncle” to mean surrender or admit defeat.

AUNT – To see your aunt in your dream represents family connection, heritage and value. The aunt may also represent aspects of yourself that you like or dislike. She can also be seen as a substitute mother.

ARMCHAIR – To see or sit in an armchair in your dream indicates that you are completely secure about your status and position in your waking life. You have established yourself and deserve respect.

EMOTIONS – It is important to note that the feelings you experience in your dreams are not symbols of something else, but rather they are actual reflections of your true feelings.  Such feelings may have been repressed during the day, and are being expressed n your dreams where your defenses are down.. Feelings expressed in dreams help you deal with depression, guilt, and other complex emotions.

Negative emotions tend to occur twice as often as pleasant feelings. Fear and anxiety are the most commonly expressed emotions  in dreams, followed by anger and sadness.

EX – In particular, to see your ex-husband/wife in your dream indicates that you are currently finding yourself in a situation that you do not want to be in. It suggests that you are experiencing a similar relationship or situation which makes you feel unhappy and uncomfortable. This is the second time I have dreamed this, this month.

INDOOR PLANTS – To see indoor plants in your dream suggests that your growth is being hindered or slowed in some way. You are experiencing a lack of independence. Alternatively, the dream signify your desire to be closer to nature.

PLANTING – To dream that you are planting something represents your faith and optimism about the future. You have an optimistic view.

THEATRE – To dream that you are in a theater signifies your social life. Consider how the performance parallels to situations in your waking life. Observe how the characters relate to you and how they may represent an aspect of yourself. You may be taking on a new role.  Alternatively, the dream is a metaphor that you are being too theatrical or too melodramatic. Are you being a dream queen?  This is the 3rd time since I started this site that I have dreamed about theatres.

NUMBER 4 – Four denotes stability, physical limitations, hard labor and earthly things, as in the four corners of the earth or the four elements (earth, wind, fire and water). It also stands for materialistic matters and how you get things done.

WALL – To see a wall in your dream signifies limitations. obstacles and boundaries. There is a barrier obstructing your progress. Alternatively, the wall indicates that you are too accustomed to your old habits and way of thinking. You feel stuck. If you dream of blood on the walls, then it is a warning of sorts. There is a situation that you need to confront. You can not avoid it any longer.

COLD – To dream that you are cold indicates that you are experiencing a breakthrough in some area in your life. Alternatively, you may be feeling isolated or emotionally restrained. Your sense of coldness could reflect your feelings about a lover or a certain person. The dream may also occur as a result of your immediate environment in which you are really feeling cold.


Most of the elements of my dream and their interpretations seem to relate very well with my present life situation.  I have recently split from a partner, not through choice but through necessity.  The circumstances around our split have been playing on my mind.  For example to the Uncle element reflects my awareness of the situation.  The wall, number 4 and indoor plants all signify limitations and obstacles, these are very present in my waking life at present both with the split from my relationship – emotionally limited, socially limited, feeling stuck in a rut.  The same is true of the EX image, and how I really have found myself in a situation that I don’t want to be in.  See my personal blog entries I UNDERSTAND and MISSING YOU MUCH  for further information. On a more positive note, the planting aspect of my dream is exactly how I am feeling about my future, positive.  I have a lot to offer the world and as soon as I am over the house moving obstacle and the relationship obstacle I know things are going to improve greatly.  A fresh new start!
