since Ron had a dream of being in an airplane crash two nights ago, and I had a car jacking dream last night, I took a look at online dream dictionaries
I am not currently in possession of a printed dream dictionary -- I know, one of the few types of dictionaries I don't have
I always wanted one to use it to interpret poems -- and in fact, I have done that from time to time with poems which have dreams in them, or poems which are dreamlike in some way -- as many neo surreal poems not operating with too much manguage slippage are --
so, the two interpretations of airplane crash:
To dream of being in this event is a feeling of not only a dramatic negative change in your life, but also to everyone around you as well as your envorment. A very negative symbol and should be meditated upon. To dream of witnessing this event is symbolic of feelings of helplessness in the face of a great tragedy. In prohetic dreams this heralds a great change in the distant future (planes are associated with great distance). This change may not be negative.
To dream that a plane crashes, suggests that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself. Your goals may be too high and are impossible to realize. You are in danger of having it come crashing down. Alternatively, your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt toward the goals you have set for yourself is represented by the crashing airplane; you do not believe in your ability to attain those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.
To dream that an airplane is hijacked, signifies disturbing feelings and past emotions in your unconscious mind.
I put that last in because car jacking dream?
and the I found something about indigo children -- stories children tell about themselves when they are very young -- I have known one 2 year old "queen of the snakes" who, her mom said, did seem to have an unusual relationships to snakes (mostly that she saw in zoos, mostly taken there because of this claim to see and rule over snakes)
ok, car jacking -- Ron says it has to be a dream because who would want your car --
To dream that you are driving a car, denotes your ambition, your drive and your ability to navigate from one stage of your life to another.
Overall, this dream symbol is an indication of your dependence and degree of control you have on your life.
To dream that you car has been stolen, indicates that you are being stripped of your identity.
ok, so I was at a rest stop -- this was a very long dream very closely related to driving up to SF this weekend -- and the car was car jacked / stolen (with my cell phone in it -- and 911, the local police and security were not helpful --
[earlier in the dream, midtown Manhattan, which I was visiting with Julie Galdieri (we took the subway uptown even though she's an upper westsider), was so crowded with tourists you needed tickets & to wait in line to get into Saks Fifth Avenue and St. Patrick's -- this is all almost true! given my last visit to midtown with adeena Karasick]
why do all of these dictionaries say "see automobile"??? it is like some bad yellow pages; who dreams of an automobile rather than a car?
Vehicles that you ride in usually reflect two things; the direction you are heading in life, and your body.
Ah yes, it was stolen by a fat Russian couple. Their skin was sort of grey.
