Sharks And Other Fears (Being Chased Dream)
I had a dream I went to the zoo with my mom, as I was younger, like five or six(I'm 21). And the zoo was just creepy, the animals were different and the lighting was just red. Plus the zoo was indoors all of it. And at some points in the zoo you had to swim across to get to another section, but you knew there was a chance of a shark, or a whale, or something able to eat you while you swam across. My Mother and I came to the snake section, and the zoo had these "activity" learning experiments set up, and my mom always volunteered me for them. At the snake area, it showcases water snakes and all of a sudden a door drops and you're in the tank of water with these giant snakes, an all of a sudden I was lifted out of the water by a snake, and then I closed my eyes and was back on the platform with my mom, who just smiled and said good job. Although I was completely terrified and crying my mom kept walking with me. Then we came to this roller coaster type thing, there was a giant group in front of us and the deal was you picked a card and it had a game you had to play, and you couldn't skip this part of the zoo, you had to do it on order to go. So my mom picked one, I'm not sure which one, so I picked the most harmless one (a Jenga type game). Keep in mind that I'm only 6 in my dream, the guy at the counted says "she got the shark tank" at the mentioning of sharks, I just start bawling and freaking out and I can't find my mom anywhere, then a guy in scuba gear walks up behind me, puts me in a shark cage and gets in with me. He held my hands on the bars and kept me still. Then the tank is lowered into the water, I don't have any breathing gear, but I found that after holding my breath for sometime I had to breathe, afraid I was going to drown I started tapping the guy behind me, and he just nodded, so I took a breath in, and could actually breathe. Then we got lower and lower and the sounds seemed to be magnified, I could hear a tank opening and then the shark started pushing against the tank, I never opened my eyes I just felt its presence. And I was terrified. Then the scuba man seemed to have disappeared, I could feel the heat from him on my back but I couldn't feel his hands anymore. Finally after agonizing minutes the shark seemed I swim away and I was lifted back up. I found my mom and just cried and cried because sharks are so terrifying to me and the fact I was around one scared me. We finally left the zoo but I left as an adult and not a child anymore.
Any suggestions of what this means would be helpful.
