Policeman in Falsgrave - dream analysis

A terrorist attack dream took place as the dreamer felt "terrorised" by health problems

THE DREAM I am in this poor looking house in Falsgrave(a part of the town where I live). I hear some major commotion or terrorist act going on outside. I feel the need to go outside. Then in the hallways there is this policeman and he starts to use a machine gun and is firing it up the stairs. I look again and he is now not wearing a policeman's uniform.

THE REALITY The dreamer was not feeling very well at the time of the dream. She had been having general problems with her health recently. The day of the dream saw a marked improvement. The point was that she was worrying over the recent health scares. Were they symptomatic of a major change for the worse with her health.

THE INTERPRETATION The dreamer obviously had things on her mind. The upstairs is a good point to start from. The upstairs in dreams links to the higher parts of the brain. The higher and constructed thinking. The imagination and emotions are formed here in the unconscious side of the mind.

Yet in this dream a machine gun is been fired there. Perhaps that symbolises the dreamers deep intuition that something was not permanently wrong and that maybe she had just had some food poisoning or something. The gun then represented a targeting of the imagination and the thoughts which were out of control.

The earlier part of the dream represented the situation as it stood the day before. The commotion outside and possible terrorist act symbolised the real havoc in the dreamers mind. If she really was ill then this would lead to major and permanent changes in her lifestyle.

But the dream also features this area called Falsgrave. Its surely a synonym. It certainly links with her situation. Maybe it shows that she knew that her body was on the mend after a little illness and that she was worrying unnecessarily. It was in other words a FALSEGRAVE that she was digging for herself.

The policeman is a symbol of the need to restore order and she surely did need for some order to be restored. She needed to know what the state of her health was. The outside in dreams is also symbolic. That wish to be outside is symbolic of the need to have an objective opinion.
