Mansion dream - dragon monster and piano player - dream analysis

THE DREAM I dreamt about a weird building owned by a crummy old lady who was controlling and weird. I wasn't myself in this, well, dunno who I was. So whatever. The old lady wanted to test my skills or something and so she made me open this locked drawer in her desk. She said the key wouldn't work. I got some lock picks and it opened easy. Inside the drawer (you could jump inside) was another room. It had monsters in it. Like a tiger and dragon monsters. I was going to leave them be, but I saw in the future and if I left them alone I could see the old lady treating me like dirt the rest of my stay. I went in and killed them. Inside the drawer room was like an extension to the mansion (was more like a mansion now). I opened the door to another room and the lady was sitting inside and there were other people there. I thought the other people were like me. They existed inside this ladies house for a reason. There was a piano player and some young people. I was the locksmith I guess. I had to show the lady several more times I could open the drawer. It would open with the key or picks or anything. Not exactly a challenge requiring a locksmith.

I dreamt about exploring the house inside the drawer, trying not to get in trouble. There were rooms with lots of food, but one of the rooms was a creepy prison of sorts with old old stale nasty food. When I went into a room with some very good food I kept thinking back to it. Like how could the same house have such different rooms. Then I went to follow the piano player. He was popular or something and didn't like fans following him. He could have lost me easy enough, but he came back and gave me tickets to his concert.

The dream changes here. The rest is a lot of random scenes without a good story line. I dreamt about Jackie Chan though, and that's real important. It was kind of like I was watching him on video, kind of like I was there. Anyway, Jackie was being his cute amusing self doing random movie-like things. Nothing stands out.

After Jackie disappeared I had to shift universes or something. I left all my stuff (Jackie Chan DVDs and such) in this library. So I appeared over next to it and picked it up, hoping no one had taken anything. There was this little Chinese kid staring at me. I thought he was a cute kid and junk, but I wasn't interested in chatting with him or his friends.

I dreamt I was at an amusement park riding a teenage mutant ninja turtles ride with my brother. It wasn't scary, but it wasn't comfortable.

THE REALITY Recently the dreamer had been trying to develop her own intuitive skills. She felt that something inside her was trying to tell her about different people and what was going on in their life. The day before the dream she had had a little awakening with a lady manager. She was giving out signals that she wanted to be left alone because she was not very well. Later on the dreamer found out that the lady had just undergone chemotherapy.

DREAM ANALYSIS The dream features one notable symbol that is worth concentrating on. Old ladies can be symbolic of our intuitive powers. They show that we are using our wisdom and intuition - sensing what is going on. In this case it was a creepy old lady. So that would tend to symbolise some very creepy and weird thought that is based on our intuitions.

In the case of the dreamer she had been trying to develop her psychic intuition. She was trying to use her powers of intuition to sense what people were thinking. This was seen as a cool and healthy little way of occupying her and was something that was largely there to help people. She felt that understanding people is a good thing.

But on the day before the dreamer encountered a rather enlightening incident. She had sensed correctly that her lady boss was feeling ill and left her alone. But she did not know that she was undergoing chemotherapy. In this incident she had not made a scene or used her intuitive powers incorrectly. However, she was suddenly brought face to face with a very real piece of real life. In trying to use her intuitions she was trying to sense what troubles were ailing people yet here she was brought right inside someone's world.

In a way the dream seems to directly link with her feelings about this. The dreamer reflected on this. She felt that it really doesn't take a lot of intuitive powers to see that a person who is suffering from cancer and is undergoing treatment will want to be on their own. In the dream we seem to have an exact match. The locksmith shows that she is unlocking and trying to understand people. However, in the dream she is thinking to herself that it is not really such a great ability to unlock the drawer.

In dreams food symbolises things that are feeding your minds. They are making us think. In this dream the food is stale and bad and that shows that the things that have been feeding her mind have been things that do not leave a good taste. That seems to directly link with her own experience. Using your intuitive powers opens your mind and helps you explore people around you. Yet here she was perhaps brought face to face with something that was just a little bit to real. Here was a woman who was facing a life threatening illness. She really was having problems.

Music in dreams often links to harmony. If someone plays a piano it shows that they perhaps like to be on their own. Its a solo instrument. So perhaps the dream is pointing to the lady managers wish to be on her own. She was happy by herself. Perhaps that portion of the dream is saying that if people want to be alone maybe that's because they have a good reason. So the intervention of some well meaning person is not really going to do any good.

The dream ends with this Jackie Chan theme. That here is something which is cool to the dreamer but is linked to a bad feeling. Maybe that links with the dreamers feeling that using her intuitive powers is not so cool after all. Amusement parks are a similar symbol. They symbolise something which on the surface appears really fun. But under the surface an amusement park often is quite sordid and twisted. Mutants too link to the dreamers feelings here. A mutant is symbolic of something that has changed vastly in relation to what it started off as. She wanted to use her powers of intuition to help people who were perhaps a little lost and lonely. But she came face to face with a very real and life threatening illness.
