Dream dictionary - worried about boy

This dreamer worked in social work and constantly felt guilty about failing the children he was responsible for. This dream explores a worst possible scenario and so reminds the dreamer not to take chances.

THE DREAM I have this dream often. I see a little boy who is always the same. He is on his own in the dark. Here is an example. The child was with a woman in my office and they had come in wondering why I had not seen them for some months. I wake in a panic and I had to make a mental note of my case list to make sure I have not forgot anyone. I wake in a panic every time and have to make myself slow down and think about the kids on my case load before I can relax.

1. The dreamer worked in social work. He was constantly worrying if he had neglected a child. If he made mistakes it would affect the children.

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers thoughts about doing a Ouija board.
- A need to stay away from something dangerous
- Childlike fears and vulnerabilities

If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture these thoughts -"I am thinking of trying a Ouija board. But maybe I should not dabble in something that is so dangerous."

We are often in two minds about doing something. Our dreams may play out possible worst possible scenarios. Here the bad things in the dream show that the dreamer has fears about trying the Ouija board.
