  • I had a dream that was so vivid and emotional that I thought I would post it now to see if it has any meaning to it?
    Next year is my first year of High School and I live on an Island where I have to get on a bus and then on a ferry to get to new my high school.
    In my dream I got on the school bus with all my junior friends and other high schooler’s from the island to head to the ferry to a cross the river get to our high school in the big city. But in my dream we were all in the yellow school bus crossing and the ferry and it started to sink, as we were all still on the bus. The bus was the first to hit the water and we were all trying desperately to get off the bus to swim to safety. But I had the most scariest feeling of dome which set in and everyone was panicking. I could feel everyone’s emotions around me and mine were hundred times worst. In this dream there were other vehicles on the ferry but they all disappeared when the bus started to sink. It was just me and the kids on the bus. I don’t even remember or know where the driver went too? I woke up before the dream was finished. I didn’t think I want to take the bus over to the city on the first day of high school or at all! What would this mean?

  • This dream reflects your feelings (symbolically, of course) about the big journey to high school. The big city is a likely metaphor for the big time of high school. A boat, sinking, and a school bus are all common dream symbols. Here are links to their definitions on this website:


    All in all, this dream reflects your feelings about the "treacherous waters" between middle and high school. Feelings in dreams are never disguised, so how you feel in the dream reflects how you feel about its subject in your waking life. You feel doom in the dream. Is it possible on some level that you feel that way about going off to high school... that it will be a struggle, as if you might sink or drown? Your dream doesn't mean that you will, only that you are scared about the journey. Given that, take some time to talk to older kids about what it will be like and what to expect. That should help put your mind at ease so that these dreams don't recur.

    Hope that helps!
