My Dreams & Nightmares / 18

Hi there and welcome to the 18th ‘My Dreams & Nightmares’ post! What will it be today? Who knows!

  • I was in the car and cockatiels kept appearing. They all had strange names and I kept letting them fly free instead of keeping them

    Car (backseat): “To dream that you are sitting in the backseat of a car suggests that you are no longer in control of your life. You may be feeling overpowered, dominated and being told what to do. You need to start taking back control of your life.”

    Cockatiels: “To see a cockatiel in your dream implies that you tend to wear your emotions of your face. You are not one to hide your true feelings.”

    Freedom: “To dream about freedom suggests that you are feeling restricted and want to break away from a current situation. Or it is time for you to move out of your comfort zone. Alternatively, the dream may serve as a reminder for you to not take your personal liberties and independence for granted.”

    Birds: “To dream of birds in your dream symbolises your goals, aspirations and hopes. To dream of chirping and/or flying birds represents joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life. You are experiencing spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.”


  • I was in the car at an intersection in my home town. For some unknown reason there were people lying down on the road in front of me. All of the sudden this car came out of nowhere and ran them over. The person driving was either asleep or passed out from drinking too much.

    Intersection: “To dream that you are at an intersection represents a decision or choice that you need to make to progress forward.”

    Traffic Lights: “To see a stoplight in your dream suggests that you feel you are being held back from pursuing your goals. Your forward progress is being controlled by someone or by some outside forces. In other words, you are not in control of your own life. Alternatively, the dream represents the pressure to succeed or else be left behind.”

    Strangers: “To see a stranger in your dream signifies a part of yourself that is repressed and hidden. Alternatively, it symbolises the archetypal dream helper who is offering you insight and advice.”

    Car accident: “To dream of a car accident symbolises your emotional state. You may be harbouring deep anxieties and fears. Are you “driving” yourself too hard? Perhaps you need to slow down before you hit disaster. You need to re-think or re-plan your course of actions and set yourself on a better path. Dreaming that someone is injured in a car accident means that you cannot control the action of others. They have to live with the consequences of their own decisions.”

    Asleep: “To see someone sleeping in your dream is a reflection of yourself and your own subconscious mind. It is telling you that you may not be alert or informed about a particular situation.”


  • I was at an old co-worker’s house, and her place was a huge mansion with waterfalls and fountains. They were having a wedding and there were kids there.

    Co-worker: “To see your co-workers in your dream highlights aspects of your waking relationship with them, including difficulties/support. It signifies your ambition, struggles and competitive nature.”

    Mansion: “To see a mansion in your dream symbolises your greatest potential and growth. You may feel that your current situation or relationship is in a rut.”

    Waterfall: “To see a waterfall in your dream is symbolic of letting go. You are releasing all those pent-up emotions and negative feelings. Alternatively, the dream represents your goals and desires. If the waterfall is clear, then it represents revitalisation, regeneration and renewal.”

    Fountain: “To see a fountain in your dream represents joy, renewed pleasure or increased sensitivity. You are experiencing an outburst of positive emotions. Perhaps you are entering a new relationship or a new phase in that relationship. Alternatively, the fountain may be analogous to sexual climax.”

    Wedding: “To see or attend a wedding in your dream symbolises a new beginning or transition in your current life. A wedding reflects your issues about commitment and independence. Alternatively, your wedding dream refers to feelings of bitterness, sorrow or death. Such dream is often negative and highlight some anxiety or fear. If you dream that you are attending a wedding, consider how you feel at the wedding. If you are upset or sad then it means that you are unhappy about the status of your life. If you are happy, then you are embracing a new change in your life.

    Children: “To see children in your dream signify an aspect of yourself and your childlike qualities. You may be retreating to a childlike state and longing for the past. You are trying to still satisfy repressed desires and unfulfilled hopes. Perhaps there is something that you need to see grow and nurture. Take some time off and cater to the inner child within. Alternatively, the dream may be highlighting your innocence, purity, simplicity and carefree attitude.”


  • My fiancé and I went into a store to look at bird toys for Tofu, our bird. Some of the toys had real life cockatiels in there, ziplocked in. We bought all the ones that were there (3) and took them all home to care for them. We gave them their own cage each.

    Bird/pet toys: “To see toys in your dream symbolises childhood, domestic joy and harmony. You may be searching for the comfort and security of home. It also represents playful attitudes and your childish ways. Alternatively, the dream may be a metaphor that you are toying with somebody’s feelings, especially if you are playing together with someone in the dream. Perhaps you are leading someone on.

    Cockatiel: “To see a cockatiel in your dream implies that you tend to wear your emotions on your face. You are not the one to hide your true feelings. Dreaming of a white cockatoo indicates that you are feeling calm.

    Bird cage: “To see a bird cage in your dream represents a loss of freedom. You are being locked up and unable to fully express yourself.”


  • I don’t know where I was, but Dad was there too. For some reason, to be nice, he ordered two trucks full of ready-to-eat food, it was like a buffet.

    Dad: “To see your father in your dream symbolises authority and protection. It suggests that you need to be more self-reliant. Consider also your waking relationship with your father and how aspects of his character may be incorporated within yourself.”

    Buffet: “To eat too much food at a buffet in your dream indicates that some relationship is consuming your energies. Alternatively, it suggests that you are trying to work through some guilt.”

    Food: “To see food in your dream represents physical nourishment and energies. The different types of food can symbolise a wide range of things. Generally, fruit is symbolic of sensuality, meat represents animalistic desires and vegetables pertain to healthy pursuits. Frozen foods may refer to your cold emotions and frigid ways. Eating certain foods also refer to qualities that you need to incorporate within your own self.”


  • One of my friends came to hangout, but they had moved really far away in Victoria (the state I live in), in a rural town along water. It turned out it took them 18 hours to get to our house… Later, I ended up at their place. I then found out myself that it was going to take me 18 hours to get home. It was a Sunday and I had work the next day and I was freaking out. I recall looking out over the water and seeing a volcano erupt. I started walking home and it took me 30 minutes.

    Friend: “To see friends in your dream signify aspects of your personality that you have rejected, but are ready to incorporate and acknowledge. The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself. Alternatively, dreaming of a friend indicates positive news.”

    Country: “To dream of the countryside suggests that you are seeking a simpler way of life. You need to take some time for yourself to relax and free your mind. Alternatively, it indicates a sense of freedom and/or openness that is lacking in your daily life.”

    Foreign Land: “To dream that you are in a foreign land represents change in your life. Consider how you feel about the surrounding. If you are afraid or lost, then it indicates that you are not ready for this change. You are not willing to leave the past behind.”

    Water: “To see water in your dream symbolises your subconscious and your emotional state of mind. Water is the living essence of the psyche and the flow of life energy. It is also symbolic of spirituality, knowledge, healing and refreshment. To see calm, clear water in your dream means that you are in tune with your spirituality. It denotes serenity, peace of mind, and rejuvenation. Alternatively, the dream means that you are mourning about something.”

    Volcano: “To see a volcano in your dream indicates that you are unable to control your emotions, particularly if the volcano is erupting. You are ready to burst. The outcome may be damaging and hurtful, especially to those around you.”

    Time: “To dream about time indicates your fears of not being able to cope with the pressures and stresses of everyday life. If time is flying or moving slowly, then it is analogous to aging and growing old. To dream that you do not have enough time signifies stress, anxiety, and fear. You may feel that time is running out in a business or personal matter.”

    Travel: “To dream that you are travelling represents the path toward your life goals. It also parallels your daily routine and how you are progressing along. Alternatively, travelling signifies a desire to escape from your daily burdens. You are looking for a change in scenery, where no one has any expectations of you. Perhaps it is time to make a fresh start.”


Since having a bird, I dream about birds a lot. That is the main point I have learned writing this post! The last one really confused me and I really don’t know how it worked out.

I hope you enjoyed this post, it was a longer one than usual!
