Incubated dream

THE DREAM I am at some shops in an area where I used to visit a lot(I do not go there at all now. I only used to visit the area to meet a friend but now I never speak to him at all). Whilst outside the shop I bump into a guy that I really cannot stand(He never stops talking and simply will not let you get away). I was thinking that this was the second time I had bumped into him here and that I would avoid going to the shop again as I really did not like meeting him. Then I am in some garage. It appears to be the house of a middle class lady. There is a copy of the News Of the World.

THE REALITY Just recently this dreamer had become interested in incubated dream and creative dream . He had read of some tests using puzzles which were very intriguing. The dreamer wanted to devise his own tests. When he woke up from this dream he immediately started to think of an idea. In short he devised this puzzle.

The Puzzle : Before you go to bed imagine that you are in the Big Brother House. Everyone in the world is in the house. Your task is to nominate two people to be evicted. So you must give the names of two people in your life that you would never like to see again and give reasons for this. Report back with any interesting dream and explain any emotions and associations connected with any of the symbols.

THE INTERPRETATION The dreamer realised when he had woken up that he had thought up a good puzzle test for incubating dream . He then realised that if he was to take that test himself then he would nominate the very person in the dream he had just had. The two seemed to be linked. So its a fair assumption that the dream was creatively inspiring this idea. What connections and clues can we make here.

If you nominate someone for eviction in Big Brother then it means you really cannot stand them. In this case this dream features two connections to people the dreamer did not like any more. It featured a very annoying man and also it took place in an area of town associated with a old friend that the dreamer does not like and does not speak too at all.

The dreamer then tried to understand the other symbols. The middle class lady made him think of the original tests he had read about. They were printed in The Times newspaper and so where linked to middle class and intellectual people. So its interesting that a copy of the News of the World appears in the dream . This is a newspaper but also very low brow and interested only in scandal. Perhaps this links to one feature of the test - it is encouraging the dreamer to talk about people they do not like(they would speak in a scandalous fashion).

Overall some symbols can be clearly linked to the idea emerging from the dreamers subconscious on waking. Some symbols were better understood than others.

Symbolic Meanings
SHOP : things you want
SHOP(that you walk past) : Something that you do not want - in this case this relates to people you do not want to see
