Example: What does this dream mean?
I'm a believer of dreams meaning something usually so i would like to interpret this one dream I had a few nights ago that I remember vividly.
Something happened before but I don't remember. It was winter and it was the afternoon. I found my grandfather, who I live with, dead by the sledding hill near my house [blood from his nose and he was just lying there] and I tried to drag his body to my backyard shed but instead of it being his body, it was my body. I told my grandmother, that I also live with, something about my other body being dead [that part, i don't remember as well], and then out of no where I started crying about my grandfather being dead. My grandmother told me to shut up and stop crying because it was useless but I knew she was genuinely hurt. [She yells when's she's mad/really sad/upset]. And then I woke up and I was dazed.
Please help because I'm really confused.
I think I can help - you decide.
If the scene is winter, then that could symbolically mean a kind of coldness, or cold feeling, to something happening in your waking life. Late afternoon could mean that the issue or event or change that the dream describes is happening "late", possibly late in your life, or it just took a long time for you to get to this point, or something else just late about the issue.
Your grandfather's body changes to your body because this is really about you, and that is the case for all dreams - they are about the dreamer. Don't worry that this dream might mean that your grandfather might suddenly die soon (the meaning usually isn't literal), but don't let my saying that keep you from giving appropriate attention to his frailty or health (if those need attention).
So, your grandfather dying in your dream would tend to mean that there is something about his influence on you, the values, beliefs or instincts that he instilled in you, that is "dying". Dying seems dramatic and negative, but dreams exaggerate, and it may be painted this way as a death because you actually have some regret or bad feeling about the change. It is hard to change, and we are often afraid of it, or mourn it - and that is why death is sometimes an appropriate metaphor for the passing of some belief, attitude or behaviour in your life.
If you are dragging the body to the backyard, it means that you are keeping this change relatively private (front yard is more public and visible), and taking it to a shed might mean you are trying to hide it to some extent (from yourself as well as others). Dragging the body can mean that there is something that is "dragging" around the issue represented by the dead body. That could either be related to time (like the lateness of the afternoon), or to burden, like what dragging around something dead would really feel like. You don't want to be doing that too much or too far, you'd want to bury the body (with appropriate ceremony) sooner rather than later.
Even your grandmother in your dream is not necessarily representing herself. Like your grandfather, she could be representing what was instilled in you, but by your grandmother. So look at what she is like, and try on this meaning: a part of you that is either like your grandmother, or influenced by your grandmother, was instilled by your grandmother is telling you to shut up and stop crying about what the death of grandfather means.
Well, you probably need to both "cry" or mourn this passing, or mark it in some way, and tell yourself to move on (like a "jump on the bus" idea). The crying, the comment from grandmother about the crying, and the hurt that grandmother feels - these are likely all things that you feel about the passing of some grandfather influence (attitude, belief, behaviour, or some issue related to grandfather).
Hope that helps - does it?

Example: What does this dream mean?
I was sitting on my bed in my room with a bunch of people I didn't know also sitting around me, it was kind of like a party. I was just sitting there all quiet, when someone knocks on the closed door of my room. I got up and answered it, and when I opened the door, it was me standing there, except it wasn't me. She was dressed exactly like me and looked like me, except she didn't have any eyes or eyebrows, just like smooth forehead until her nose and mouth. She smiled at me and then tackled me. I tried to look around the room and ask for help, but all the people that were in there before were gone. She pinned me down and asked me a question, but I didn't understand what she was saying, it just sounded like screams. I asked what she said, and she repeated herself two more times, but I still couldn't understand what she was saying. After the third time, she just screamed really loudly and I woke up. Any idea what this means? I had the same dream the night later, except the setting and situation was different, but she still pinned me down and asked me three questions. I'd like to know what this means please! I know it's long, I'm sorry!

I had a dream that I was my boyfriend, but my boyfriend didnt look like himself and I myself didnt look like myself. so the me that didn't look like me was painting a picture in a wedding dress in the house that I grew up in (where I suffered child abuse) and the me that was my boyfriend asked the me that didn't look like me (she had all the physical and facial features that I wish I had) if I really wanted to marry him. I said I wasn't sure. and then he chopped off my head with an ax he pulled out of his back pocket. He/me then hid my/not my body in my childhood bedroom (except the room had beige paint and was covered in news paper trash) he then chopped my skull into fourths and put it in a briefcase and went on a big pirate ship sailing through a stormy night. At some point in the dream I have the vague feeling of my abusive grandmother noticing me/him boiling my bones so that they wouldn't smell. He/me also felt he was being chased and investigated I think he/me even went to an interrogation room at some point. Any ideas what any of this would mean?
A few months ago i got my car painted [real life] and in my dream we were at that same paint shop. In the dream the painter had my pastor's face and he had a baby gorilla/ape. In the dream i could not see the person whom i was with but i believe it was my father because that's who i went with when my car got painted. So the painter comes walking to us with his baby gorilla playing around and I was soooo excited to see one because as a child i always wanted like a little monkey or chimp. I started playing with the gorilla and called my friend she was like "aww i wanna see, take some pics" ... I proceeded to take pictures and was happy and then i woke up ... WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
also i was kissing my girlfrien on her navel,ears and she was painted green on boobs and yellow on the remaining body
Example: Scary Dreams. What do they mean?
The last few nights I've been having terrible dreams. The one i remember is most vividly is being in the funeral home my grandmother's funeral was. Me and my ex-boyfriend weremthere,but I think we were back together. We were leaving,nut I left my laptop and iPad in there and we went back to get them. I asked who was driving,then realized there was someone driving us and said "Oh," and got out and knocked on the doors. My friend's grandpa came out and said now wasn't a good time. I told him I left my stuff in there and he agreed to let us in. When we came in there were small pieces of dead body everywhere and I'm pretty sure I stepped on a piece. My ex picked a piece up and say "Whoa,look. It still has a chunk of brain on it," and I told him to shut up before I puke. He set it down and my fiend's grandpa got my stuff and gave it to me. He was vacuuming up souls and me and my ex accidentally let them escape. My friend's grandpa yelled at us and wouldn't help us. Then I woke up. What do these creepy dreams mean? And why the he|| am i dreaming about my ex?
Example: What does my dream mean?
The dream started out pretty normal. I was in an old Victorian-style building with a large glass greenhouse attached to the mansion. It felt like one of those Nancy Drew games actually. At least, the layout and feel to it did.
I can’t really remember how long I wandered around, I don’t really remember much except the looking into the greenhouse, but sometime around then, the house started to change. It didn’t feel as warn or welcoming as it initially did. The halls were longer and poorly lit. And everything felt old, but not in a good way. The carpet looked worn out and almost unrecognizable from its previous glory. The walls were faded shades of brown or tan.
I started walking down the hall. Come to think of it… The hall felt as if it was the only piece of the house still in existence. It was really quiet. There was a large cast iron gate in the middle of the hall that I had to go through. Beyond that gate, was a square room. Except instead of walls, there were other iron gates. Beyond those gates were people that looked as if they hadn’t seen the sun in years. Their bodies were only sheltered from the cold drafts by dirty white night gowns that looked more like they were grey. They were all lying around, some of them moaning or lying motionless on the moldy wooden bunk beds that seemed to go on forever. It was the same on both the right and left side from where I came in from.
I don’t know why, but I knew it was some sort of old, possibly abandoned, mental hospital. In front on me, was an old wooden door on rusty hinges. I slowly opened the door; it only leads left down a torch-lit tunnel with dirt covering the floor. Suddenly I had the urge to leave that tunnel. I felt as if something would come and get me if I stayed.
I ran through the wooden door and the first Iron Gate I entered and ran back into the hall. It opened up now, the hall also lead to a better lit large room that you could reach if you walked up a few stairs.
Throughout the rest of that dream I always felt as if I was being pulled back to that wooden door. I don’t remember much after that, but I did know that there was a man somewhere in the house trying to figure out what happened there that I wanted to find. I felt as if as long with him I’d be safe. And there was another man who wanted to leave, but didn’t want me to be alone. I told him it was ok and he had a kid he needed to think about. He needed to be with his kid, even if I didn't really want him to go.
So,last night I had this hectic and bizarre dream. I was in a weird place that I can't really understand. I was giving birth and was not the only one! There were a few of us, and for some religious reasons we had to do it naturally. In the dream, I had no idea what religion it was or where in the world I was, but I had to wear a black birqah and my face was painted, almost with war paint! When i say that we all had to do it naturally - I mean, there was no access to hospitals, nurses, midwives, beds or anything. We might have been in a forest or something. Suddenly, I am squatting and there are baby legs hanging out of me - they are bigger than a new-born, perhaps the size of a 1 or 2 yr old's legs. Then I am trying to push it out and am struggling. My boyfriend is there ( I think this is the first time I am aware of him being there). Then I start to panic that I used to many drugs when i was younger and that I will have a deformed baby. Then I manage to push the baby out and sure enough it is deformed! The baby has a neck the size of my thumb, and its on the floor, and it has no HEAD! the head is still inside me... and then i push it out and i'm feeling rather traumatized that i produced this mangled mess of a baby. I remember feeling ashamed and guilty that I had done this.
very very odd indeed...
