    Interpretation please anyone??

    Always takes place at a siblings home or my mothers but whole familys(11siblings and mom)there and everyones having fun,partying,going places,swimming and they are all snubbing me,leaving me outta activitys,not speaking to me, and its very obvious,I feel very unwanted and when i ask why they are acting that way, they dont really answer me but I get the feeling they dont want me around and I try really hard to get attention but end up having temper tantrum like 2yro but still noone seems to care!!
    The End


    Strange thing is Im pretty close with all my siblings and mom and they would never behave like this in real life but Ive had this same dream a few times lately and its the only recurring dream Ive ever had(that I can recall anyways)!!
    It bugs me!!

    Feelings IN dreams are never disguised, which is interesting when you consider how many symbols there are in dreams. There is no symbol for a feeling in a dream; a feeling is that feeling. So, how you feel IN the dream is how you are feeling about its subject in your waking life at the time you had it.

    Your dream reflects feelings of being unwanted (disrespected?) and snubbed and how angry you felt about it... perhaps because of how close you feel to your family normally. Because you probably didn't really deal with those feelings at the time you had them, they bubbled up in your dream. Your dream isn't telling you that this is the way you always feel about your family, only that it was how you were feelings about something that occurred between you and them at the time of the dream. The behavior of your siblings and mom are symbolically exaggerated in the dream (as was your reaction) to make that point. As with any recurring dream, it's always best to think back to the time when it first occurred. What was going on in your waking life (with your family) that might have triggered it? The lesson of this dream is that something they did made you feel that way. The more attuned you are to those feelings and what it was that triggered them, the sooner you can address the issue with your family.

    An alternate possibility is that your family in the dream is a metaphor for another "family-like" group in your waking life, such as a athletic, work or social group. Often with recurring dreams, once you understand their meaning, they go away. The reason is that it has been resolved. If a dream recurs, it is because those feelings have recurred and that dream is now your personal shorthand to express it. An example is the dream of a test for which you are not ready. That dream frequently recurs long after school years because it is still the best example of feeling unprepared in advance of something for which you will be judged. The school test becomes the symbol for the test-like situation in your waking life, such as an upcoming presentation at work. Here's a link to the definition of recurring dreams on this site: dreamdoctor.com/daily-dream/recurring-dreams.html

    Hope that helps!
