Do you ever have periods where you dream every night? Logically I know that this has more to do with waking up more frequently and therefore remembering the dreams. But still… sometimes it just feels like your brain is trying really hard to tell you something.
If this is the case, I wonder what my husband’s brain was trying to communicate. In an effort to better understand the depth of my husband’s psyche (or perhaps simply because I wanted to tease him about it) I did a little research into these dream symbols. So here’s my amateur interpretation:
Dolphins are apparently a good symbol to have in a dream. According to the website Dreammoods.com, “To see a dolphin in your dream symbolizes spiritual guidance, intellect, mental attributes and emotional trust. The dream is usually an inspirational one, encouraging you to utilize your mind to its capacity and move upward in life”
In a similar vein, riding on a boat has an emotional aspect.“To dream that you are in or see a boat signifies your ability to cope with and express your emotions.”
So, my husband is obviously going through a stage where he is ready to tap into his emotions. I imagine this has something to do with re-reading my new, very emotional, novel. I had no idea he was so touched by the angst my characters go through.
On the other hand, it could also be that he had simply watched too much T.V. about the stuck cruise ship and was feeling sorry for the people who had been on it. (Dolphins are also a sign of assistance and help.)
Either way, now that I have found this website, I hope to get all sorts of insights into my family’s innermost thoughts. Now I am off to dream, as usual, of losing teeth. Curious? Go look it up.
