Community centre but locked out - dream symbolism

THE DREAM I am near the community centre and I appear to be involved in some major activity. I am walking around the vicinity of the old town. I seem to be involved in something but I also appear to have been locked out. I get the sense that I have been excluded.

THE REALITY The very day of the dream the dreamer received a new video camera through the post. However, some parts of the camera equipment were missing so she could really get started using the new equipment.

DREAM SYMBOLISM It is quite possible to dream about the days events to come. In this dream there seems to two feelings - a feeling of lots of activity and one of been locked out. That perfectly matched the emotions that the dreamer felt that day. The sense of movement and involvement is represented by the community centre. That is a place which the dreamer associated with involvement and interesting activity. She regularly attended this centre up until recently. The use of the video camera would represent a new project and interesting hobby.

The second feeling in the dream was that of been excluded or locked out. The video camera was able to be used but only when attached to a computer. So that excluded most practical uses of the video.

Buildings in dreams usually give clues to the types of feelings that we are having. A community or public building is a big clue. It shows that the dream is about some feeling caused by your involvement in the world. It is the world having an impact upon you as opposed to you deciding your own feelings and acting upon them. The community centre certainly did pinpoint a moment when the dreamers life was shaped by the actions of others.
