  • I had this really strange dream the other night, and while I wasn't scared in the dream, ever since it has been stuck in my head, and it worries me. What do people think it means?

    I was with my parents, we were wandering through some type of wilderness. Vaguely remember it being a forest/jungle of some kind. We came across a trade post/large house where we were welcomed in and fed and we spent the night. The next day, (something) alerted me that the people here were not to be trusted and I tried to get my parents to leave. But they would not go, saying it was safe there. So I ran on my own. I was able to jump very high, and run very fast almost without stop. But somehow, each time I tried to run, the group of men from the house were able to catch me. It was a group of men, and I could see their faces although I can not remember what they look like. They didn’t seem to be trying to hurt me, and they would laugh almost endearingly whenever they caught up with me, while I was more like “crap, they caught me again.” I wasn't scared. I remember that I wasn't scared. The next time I ran, I went into some stranger’s house, trying to lose them. I remember seeing a man with a young boy. He smiled and said to go through the window. There were four? screens I had to remove to get through the window. I exited into what I assume is the back yard (it was outside) and heard a group of people coming, so I hid among some sheets of wood (I think) and hoped they wouldn’t see me. I could see their feet as they approached where I was hiding. I remember thinking it wasn’t a good hiding spot, and that I was caught again. But when they pulled me out, it was a different group of men, all Native American. The leader was a very handsome man, perhaps late 20’s early 30’s, but who looked like he had had a hard life, spent outside. His face was very square and weathered. He had silver hoops in his ears, very small ones. And one hoop had a pointy pendant hanging from it. He had long hair, mostly down but with a braid. He looked despairingly at me, as if I was just some weird girl, and then moved as if to move on. But a rabbit-bird came flying up. It was a soft brown colour, with long floppy ears lying neatly along its back. I don’t remember what the bird part looked like, only that it was a rabbit-bird. It came up to me, and nuzzled my chin with its nose. The leader-man looked very surprised and said that it had chosen me. He tried to touch the rabbit, as if to see if it was just friendly, but it would not allow him to touch it. Then I woke up.

  • The jungle/forest represents your subconcious existance. In the midst of this 'subconcious jungle', there is trading post/house. This represents your mind, in particularly, where an exchange of value happens. In other words, a place in your mind where you can think about things and sort through the good and true items to keep vs the bad stuff that isn't beneficial to get rid of. Your parents symbolize the higher, more loving part of your personality. They say that you are in a good, safe place. Deep down you know this is true but you fall victim to your own fearful thoughts. By running away, this indicates that you are 'escaping' your own mind. You desparately look for ways to quit dwelling on things. All the men in this dream represent different aspects of your actions or behaviors. The men from the house symbolize actions on your part that bring you back 'to reality'. This may be where you 'check out' only to come back due to responsibilities in your life such as a job, school or family. A window represents a tool for awareness. climbing out the window after removing screens shows how one activity you've went through allowed you to remove some 'filters' and see things for what they were. This leads to the next part...the native american men once again represent action or behavior. Here, you are engaged in an activity that isn't geared toward 'bringing' you back but in understanding why you leave. This could indicate doing research into your situation, discussing with friends, or even possibly counseling.
    Animals represent habits. Birds in general are mental habits as they deal with the air. The hybrid shows a combo of the mental mixed with something else. If you have a personal take on what a rabbit means to you, that could give a better clue. Considering the nature of the dream, I would say that it is a timid and fearful creature. Look at your life and see how you struggle against fearful thoughts. Anxiety can lead a person to dread even good things. Hope this helps in some way. God bless.
