Protecting a kitten - dream dictionary meanings
THE DREAM - I was an engineer in charge of fighting a war. I chose to compose a bridge over an inlet by the ocean. We were primitive people, and when the dream began we were prehistoric or something, just not in the metropolitan lifestyle that I currently live in. It may have been set in the middle ages or on some colony on a foreign planet. Lately I've been comparing something I am doing to what the pioneers did in the US, to go to a primitive land and colonize it.
Anyway, I completed a large portion of this large bridge and was working on one of the last segments. I was on the part that was furthest from the ocean. The bridge looked beautiful but I was concerned that it did not seem to have a foundation, nor did I have the engineering skills to create a foundation (it was too primitive in that society).
Then the tide came in and started washing out the bridge with people still on it and the bridge was a mess, it was an immediate emergency and disaster! I ran back over the part I was on that was furthest from the sea to get to dry land and save myself along with other people on it. The place I was at was actually distant enough that the lacking foundation did not immediately render it a loss. But plenty of other people fell into the inlet, washed out to sea, materials were lost and wasted, and of course this would contribute to what I evaluated as a failure at my initiatives.
Someone wanted to kill me for this. I killed several assassins but one in particular (with glowing eyes) was merciless. In the end I battled this unliving demon with a long sword (samurai sword) and killed him by running him through in close proximity (hand to hand).
As I was running away again I turned into one of my sisters kids two kids, and the other kid (my brother) was with me. We were running into the car, from the back hatch door. We were going somewhere in the car with my boyfriend and I. In this part of the dream it was more personal. My boyfriend was the dad and I was here the mom, we were in the dream as our 'parents'. Then there was the adorable kitten trying to climb the seat after us and it fell asleep hanging from the back seat. Its cute pink tongue sticking out a little. I reached back to cup the kitty, and then held the kitten gently and lovingly in my lap to protect it as it slept.
