Set fire to managers kitchen - dream interpretation

Dreams link to important feelings from the day before - this dream occurred the day after the dreamer had walked past someone whom he used to work with. He regretted not saying hello to this person. This dream seems to link to that feeling.

THE DREAM I am in the countryside somewhere(I seem to associate it with an area where I visited once for a function with my former boss). I am in a building. Its like a classroom. I am watching my teacher intently(its my old boss). Then suddenly I want to see what the distraction is. I look and see its some farmyard. Its far off in the distance. There is some explosions going off.

Later I am in my home town. I am watching something. Suddenly a man runs very fast and jumps through a shop window. He smashes right through it. Then I am in my old bosses home kitchen. I have not got much time and seem to be trying to find some matches. I then try to set fire to the kitchen. I am trying to burn the place down.

THE REALITY The day before the dreamer saw someone who he met through his old job. He was distracted and just ignored him. The dreamer did not think much of this but he then realised that all the people he met whilst doing his old job he was slowly falling out of touch with.

DREAM INTERPRETATION The dream clearly has two links with the dreamers former workplace. His boss and the farm where they held a function. The day before he had a little incident which the dream could be about. He bumped into a person whom he knew through his former workplace. He kind of caught the persons eye yet did not say hello. He was actually distracted so it was not intentional. But over a period of time he was now slowly falling out of touch with many people from his former job. So its significance was maybe greater than thought.

So burning down the kitchen of his former bosses home was a way of showing how this part of his life was now slowly becoming history. Maybe the dream is saying that this was necessary. He liked his former workplace. In the dream the explosions are no big deal which maybe captures the dreamers thoughts about this incident the day before.

The dream also captures another moment in the dream. The sense of distraction matched the real life incident.

Shops in dreams symbolise options. The dreamer is reducing his options in life by cutting himself off from people he used to know. The man links with the aggressive nature of his own actions. Ignoring is a form of aggression. Its a male form of behavior. Hence the man runs right into the shop.
