Hey everyone... I haven't posted on her much as of late. I've been super busy working.

Anyway, the last 2 days, I've had 2 different dreams, and BOTH involved me dying from a form of suffocation. Here's the first:

I was sitting in a Mustang. Pretty nice. And I was in this factory. They were doing some sort of work on the car, and I was just messing with the radio and stuff. I heard the man mention something about "dipping" it. And suddenly this crane type thing picked up the car and I didn't have a chance to get out. It carried it around the facility and then lowered it into a water tank. (Odd, I know)

I didn't try to open the door for some reason. Instead I attempted to make sure the windows were rolled up completely. I guess in hopes to keep the car from leaking. Didn't work. I drowned. But it was very peaceful. Not at all how I expected it.

The 2nd dream is kinda odd:

I was in this house. And the wall was covered in red wasps. I began spraying wasp killer all over them. It sorta cut to the next scene, and I was laying down with a bunch of dead wasps all over my shirt. (guess that would happen when you're in a closed room with bug spray lol) Anyway... I start trying to knock the wasps off my shirt, and it skips to the next scene again and this paramedic is on her knees above me doing CPR. She keeps saying, "Don't give up! Don't give up!" and I remember thinking about how peaceful it was again. How easy it was to just stop breathing. And I did.

So 2 different dreams, 2 days. Both times.. it was a lack of being able to breathe.

Anyone have any thoughts? Is it just random dreams, cuz it seems very odd. I've never had dreams like this, especially 2 like that within 2 days.

Hope to get some feedback soon. Thanks!

I don't know, there could be a million reasons.

But one that comes to mind is, maybe you have that condition where sometimes you find it hard to breathe or stop breathing while asleep, and because of that it translates into your dreams?

Here I found the condition.

Hello, I will try to interpret - first - one of your dreams. For this I'll explain also the single meanings.

Your car dream:
The car generally means the individual life trip. The brand of the vehicle shows the type and manner how you go through life. That it concerns a "Mustang", lets suggest to that, that power, status and something like a thinking in rivalry (I am more quickly, better etc.) (should) move you forwards.
Your sitting in a car and not driving means that you are in a standstill on your individual journey through life. Something is wrong with your situation, because you need mechanic for the car. That you repair the car not yourself, shows your passivity in your situation. You are not only indifferent because you dont pay attention to that, what is made with the car, but also messing with the radio. You become first attentive when you hear the word "dipping". This concept means that it is about depth and that you should go into something more deeply - perhaps that you shall operate something like cause study or let yourself in in something?
Your passiveness or your inability to steer the things by yourself, becomes - by raising the car (with you as a passenger) by the crane - very clear. You are helpless - one simply does something with you and you are not able to get out (of the situation). You are carried around the factory. The factory means - in the broadest sense - a machinery, in which - in the initial position of the dream - you are. Now, you are carried around it and you land in the water.
The meaning of the water is various. Here are some meanings: cleaning, Baptism, resolution, flowing, psyche, feel, unconscious, solution, letting off, swimming (or going down), truth. If you look at these concepts and think about it, why you have not got off the car and even have tried to prevent that water penetrates into your car, you then know, too, what you fend off. You would have had the chance to stay alive and not suffocate, if you would have left your car (with all meanings of the car) and swum into the water. This means that this type of your life and the type of the locomotion require urgent a course correction in your life. The water points out to you to letting off the previous - all what is wrong. The adherence and the defence let you sink. The death can be beautiful, is it, however, what you want?
Sorry, maybe I was too direct?

Hey, thanks for the reply. I have before had an issue with that. lol But not in a very long time. And it stopped once I stopped sleeping on too many pillows. Though that was an intelligent thought. I can see exactly why you might have thought it. The external entering into my dreams.

I don't think it's right however. But I am deeply thankful for your time.

Hey, I would like to thank you as well for your thoughts. You speak in a very deep, complicated manner, but I'm pretty sure I got what you're saying. As for most of it.. I do happen to feel like I'm not at all where I should be in life. Especially lately. I don't feel happy. I have a strong urgency to move forward, but feel completely imprisoned where I'm at. (as far as work, which completely touches every area of my life)

I don't know why it was a Mustang. I don't know really about any of the dream. I was really more curious what suffocation symbolizes in dreams. Like I said, I do feel trapped. I do feel helpless. I do feel unhappy. It's a very deep sadness. Not just regarding my job, but life in general isn't where I feel it should be.

Anyway... thank you very much for taking the time to consider the dream, and to respond. If you have any other thoughts, I would deeply appreciate them. And never worry about being too direct. I admire truth.

Dear EagleTalonZ,

Its ok for me to take my time for you and your dreams. I am always happy when I can support somebody and I like to tell you my thoughts furthermore.

The death is in dreams a symbol of change. Some old must die and the new must be found. Perhaps the manner of the death says something about, where the problem is the greatest. I dont know it exactly. For this, we should think about the breathing and the air.

The breathing is an automatic process, it goes normaly by itself. If the air is cut off for one, then one gets nothing more and this is not only air? Something, one urgently needs...for example recognition, affection or something like this? It must be something that one urgently needs for staying alive.

Air is regarded as a symbol of the spirit generally. It means thouths and communication. If water comes into your lungs, then you should the meanings of the water combine with those of the air. Perhaps you shall clean your thoughts or say the truth or you shall be truthful in the communication?

posted on Aug, 22 2008 @ 05:25 PM
Something still has occurred to me. Air also means liberty and distance. If you get no more, then you are in a condition restricted very much, perhaps also overtaxed or stressed. Maybe you work too much or let yourself dash?

Thanks again for your time, and your thoughts. I asked my mom as well. Normally she is pretty good about interpretations. She said black, and red almost always mean danger, or spiritual death. And that she believes they mean I am dying spiritually. I disagree with this, because I have never felt more alive spiritually. (tho she is referring to the fact that I am no longer a Christian. Which I was for the past 26 years of my life. I believe that choice effects pretty much any of her opinions in my life)

Anyway, here are my thoughts:

I don't believe it is real death. I believe, and have been saying for awhile, that I am not where I'm suppose to be in life. But.. I'm not doing anything to get to where I'm suppose to be either. I feel very deeply that I am suppose to be a very well respected, very wealthy man. I believe I'm suppose to be truly free. Able to travel at will. Able to spend as much time with my family as I choose. But at this point, that is certainly not happening. I'm spending an average of 60 hours a week working. Missing out on so much time with my loved ones. I watch the sun come up, sleep all day, (cuz I work nights), then repeat schedule. It's truly discouraging.

To be honest... I did feel free finally in those dreams. It was almost a breath of fresh air... (pardon the irony of those words)...

I've had many dreams where I've died. But none for many years. The last one I had before was when some kids did a drive by and shot me up really badly with some uzis. lol However, that one seemed nice as well. I think perhaps you're right to say I do kind of long for death.

Well... if you have any more thoughts, or if anyone else does... I still appreciate anything you come up with. Have a great day!

Hi again, I also don't believe that the real death in your and generally in dreams is meant. Like I already said it, the death is a symbol of change and nothing else. There are people who have true dreams but they dont see her own accident or her own death mostly. Mostly of others.

I think that it could help you to carry one or two stones with you (better is to wear on your skin). The name of the first one is "Variscit" and the name of the second is "Sugilith". I hope that their names are the same in english as in german - you should google for them.

The "Variscit" soothes deep mourning, has the effect of mood brightening and it gives you the courage not to give up if you are in a despairing situation. It makes awake and attentive. In the physical area it has the effect of regenerating, activating and antispasmodic.

The "Sugilith" is the best stone over all when you are suffering of a serious illness, like cancer or AIDS, but also - if you are emotionally strongly affected. It helps you simple to stay alive.

Try it and if so.... let me know your expierences.

Tomorrow I will think about your other dream.

Bye for now

Hi you, now as promised the interpretation of your second dream:

The meaning of wasps is generelly a warning signal. It stands for "low" instincts, primarily rage, blind aggressiveness, hate or revenge of those the dreamer is warned of. It often shows a serious inner conflict of the dreamer which is connected to this topic. This conflict is often triggered by a personal disappointment. That the wasps have a red colour, underlines the aggressiveness which they anyway mean, because the colour "red" also can stand for a strong aggressiveness and it also means fire, fight, intensity and compulsiveness. This combination is rather intense and has something of a Vukan which threatens to break out.
I am not sure whether I have understood you correctly that you were in your house. If so... then the house stands for your own body and soul where the conflicts shows itself. That you then kill all wasps with poison means that you kill your own rage and aggression and your doing so is apparently not good for you..... because not only the wasps are dead but also you lies down.... and you get no more air and die also.
The paramedic who wants to help you, is a female person and every femal person in the dream of a man, is a part of his own female side but it shows you that this side in you is not strong enough to help you with your inner conflict.

I have the impression that something is not in the balance in yourself and think that your tendency to get furious and your degree of aggression is marked too strongly. Your dream consciousness or your subconscious also thinks this and shows you the danger of these aggression. But it also shows you that it cannot be the solution to kill your aggressions because you then would kill yourself.

I think you have to find a conscious solution and I give you the advise to understand ...first... what it is really about and second... to use your intellect to understand the persons involved, so that you can come into the situation of forgiving and finding your peace with the conflict. It is very helpful to try to go in the shoes of the other persons involved and not to be self-righteous. And it is also helpful to speak with oneself about the conflict, so as if one would be several persons who each represents an own personality-part..... because every outer conflict means an inner conflict.

I hope, I could help you a little bit.

I really want to thank you very deeply for all the time you have put into interpreting these dreams. They were not as disturbing to me, as they were puzzling. So I really appreciate you taking time out for me. It means a lot.

As for your interpretations, I cannot say if they are correct or not. As you have suggested in the 2nd dream, regarding the wasps and so forth, I may or may not have my balance in place. And I believe that would also keep me from knowing so.

I typically am not an angry person. And I do tend to put myself in others' shoes before making judgments about how the situation is meant to be. As of late, my anger has not been towards others, but more so myself. As I said previously, I do not believe I'm where I'm suppose to be in life. I feel as if I put off things I should have done, or perhaps completely neglected them. I now feel as though I am trapped in a sense, and I very badly want to move forward and achieve my goals.

Another possible thing: I am in a relationship. I am intending on marrying this girl, but have been dealing with INTENSE confusion. I feel as though I love her, but I don't seem to have emotional attachments to her, and it causes me personal issues. It makes me question if I even really love her. So I have been highly upset at myself for this as well. Do you think this could play a part as well?

And I think this may be important. While I was in a house, unsure if it was mine, but I believe so... the wall is highly important. It really stood out to me. Almost as though it was the only object in that house. Does that make sense? I never looked at the ceilings, the floor, or any other walls. I came in, saw the wasps, had the poison in hand already, and then the rest happened.

Again.. thank you SO much for all your thoughts. I don't believe it meant a literal death either.

Where can I get these stones you speak of? You mentioned google, so I'm assuming I can buy them online?

Hope to hear from you again, my friend...

Sorry, I was a bit busy... so I'm late with my answer.... but I'm here again.

I believe you, that you are not an angry person... maybe your dream means that something will happen, that will make you angry or will disappoint you very much. Otherwise there is only the possibility that you repress it totally and are very unconscious. I can't say it because I don't know you exactly. That you only have seen the wall with the wasps, means that these theme is very urgent for you. In any case has your subconscious these opinion. A good technique of dream interpretation is if you put yourself into every detail of your dream. You have to think than "I am a wasp. How does it feels to be this wasp? Why I am red? What will I do? Am I dangerous for this man?" and so on. You can do it with every thing in your dreams and can learn very much about yourself and what will tell you your subconscious. Every detail in your dreams has a meaning and a message for you.

For your very badly wanting to move forward I still have a stone for you... the name is "Lapislazuli". A "Granat" would be also helpful....and sometimes it is good, too, to let your subconscious lead you to a stone when you are looking at them, because it knows what you need. You find all stones here (unfortunately I haven't found an online-shop in America to buy these stones):

And I don't think you should marry a woman when you haven't a strong emotional attachment or feeling to her. What is love without an emotion? I can't imagine. Can you gain acceptance if you are together with her or must you put on a mask? Are you thinking that she would frighten herself, if you would be furious or aggressive? Can you be thruthful with her? To marry someone indicates to be very certain with yourself and with your partner or don't you mind to divorce?

I wish you many clear thoughts and realizations - if you have more questions I will answer you with pleasure.
