I think it's the weather bringing them on or something because I've been having some very very strange ones too! Can't analyse it though ... *puts on mystic meg voice* maybe it is a sign that it's time for a rebirth... you should re-invent yourself....blah!

Do you have any yearnings for love and affection yourself? Not necessarily for another baby but from your partner?
How old is your dd?
Maybe the realisation that she's growing up and not so dependant on you makes you suddenly feel redundant?
They could simply be 'broody' feelings.
Dreams usually are abstract though so it could be yearning for a new interest in your life?
Am I being any help?

Hi Almostanangel
Firstly I am no expert but this is what I see from your post

Bad dreams... I think regular bad dreams mean you need to clear ideas/ attitudes / actions that are not healthy from your daytime life.

Like Fastasleep I think this dream could well be about rebirth. Objects / symbols / animals etc are intepreted by representation. Look at your dream again in this post. What does each stage possibly mean? Like this for e.g.
Slot machine - death
Money - rebirth
Field - Life
Cutting - death
Baby - rebirth/life
parents - death
Taking baby - life
What does a slot machine feel or seem to you to mean? To me whilst it could be symbolised as a void sucking energy (money) this slot machine was not empty. What was thought to be gone can be retrieved.

This dream seems to be about you in varios stages of loss/life. Try holding yourself as the baby and nuture any loss or rebirth that needs to be recognised and journey through.

Hope that helps... I am no expert! Just thoughts

thank you all reading what you wrote makes me get a lump in my throut so there must me something in it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,i just am feeling a real loss for waking up and not really holding this baby ,,,its really painfull....

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 09:18:35

papillion i keep reading yours and i am near to tears so think you have hit the nail on the head i think i know what you mean re holding self as baby but not eay for me to nurture self always other people not me ,,how can this dream have affected me so much ,,when i have had some real bad dreams that i have forgot about?

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 09:19:34

Morning - I wish i still had all my dream books so i could try to help you out. I used to write down and analyse (or try to!) all of my dreams. I had one 3 nights ago about my friend who comitted suicide and it's still playing over and over in my head.
I cant remember all the exact meanings so i dont want to say 'it could be......' and get it wrong!

Could well be a maternal thing and you are sub-conciously wanting to hold a baby again. It also says insecurity to me - are you feeling insecure?

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 09:41:33

swiper prob mix of all these things ..but am having a prob trying to calmly work out what it could mean ..because i woke up and was so upset that the baby was just a dream ,,it feels like i have lost a real baby and am heartbroken.

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 09:42:16

i know that is stupid but it really is a tangible pain

misdee Fri 29-Apr-05 09:44:35

i'll see if i can find my DREAMS book later. am waiting for a lift atm so cant do it now. will do it this evening if no-one else has.

almostanangel - feel for you as i have very vivid dreams too, so much so that i sought some guidance

what i have been told is that when are are dreaming about a baby, contrary to what you might think, the baby represents you and your self esteem

so, if you rethink you dream in that regard, at a guess (and it's just a guess) you might want to consider how your are feeling about being abandoned or lost(either emotionally/physically), about nurturing yourself / being kind to yourself, how you interact with your friend and how she interacts with you (do you feel she has power/control/influence over you in that she had to talk to the man, rather than you talking to the man), do you feel you need permission to take control of your life ....

all this is just guess work, but i hope that you feel better

koalabear Fri 29-Apr-05 09:48:58

ps. dreams are rarely a direct translation - usually, the imagery represents other things

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 10:08:35

oh kb...........ouch! i still feel like a child [am 37] my dad died last year could that be the man!! oh god i need to go out soon and am sobbing

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 10:09:33

misdee thanks talk to you later

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 10:11:11

kb re the friend bit the woman in the dream was astranger i think,,i was helping her as she was upset then i followed her

koalabear Fri 29-Apr-05 10:15:53

oh, AAA, sorry about you day

perhaps as this dream has effected you so strongly, it is about your grief

have you grieved yet? do you know about the five stages of grief? perhaps talking with someone would help

hope you are ok

koalabear Fri 29-Apr-05 10:16:18

bother - meant DAD not DAY - am bad at typing

almostanangel Fri 29-Apr-05 10:19:39

kb ..............i have grieved and am doing really well have been able to get his photo out now ,,,wish i had looked closer at the man in the dream as if it had been my dad i could have hugged him,,,,,,,,,,,

koalabear Fri 29-Apr-05 10:21:28

maybe that's something to look forward to tonight
