Fallen trees - dream analysis
THE DREAM I was driving home and I was talking to someone on the phone, and as I drove, along the road to my house where huge fallen gum trees and I was worried about the house as I got closer. The road in my dream is not actually my street, but I knew in my head this was street and I don't see the house. As I drove and spoke to the other person on the phone I said there are trees everywhere. The feeling was they were sort of in my way even though they were not across the road they were along side the road.
GUESSWORK The dreamer was having to move home because of financial reasons. There are some gum trees at the back of her house. The dreamer was also suffering from serious health problems. She was also getting no support from her older children and her own parents were never around . The dreamer is big on family and family values.

ASSOCIATIONS AND SYMBOLIC MEANINGS
1. FALLEN TREES. Trees are deep rooted and can represent things deeply rooted in our lives. So uprooted trees can represent relationships that have ended or places that no longer feature in our lives. In short they represent major change.
2. MY HOUSE. The house is the dreamers house. However, its not a home that she recognizes. It is probably a dream about the dreamers new home to be (one which she has not yet seen). So the dream is about moving from her present home. Home and family are very important to the dreamer.
3. GUM TREES. This is a good clue to the dreams meaning. There are gum trees in the dreamers back garden. So its likely that the dream is about the house move. The fact that these are fallen trees suggests that the dream is about her feeling uprooted about moving.
DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers worries about moving home. The dream deals with the following themes
- your home
- feeling uprooted
If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture these thoughts -"There are a lot of big changes coming in my life. I will shortly be living in a home I have never seen. I believe strongly in family life and I am losing my home and also my family seems to lack interest and support in my time of need."
