Dreams can provide insight into our deepest thoughts. Using dream interpretation to explore dream symbols and uncover a dream's meaning can lead to a better understanding of ourselves.
I was at my high school bands’ reunion, and we were to perform at Union 76 (a truck stop) Everyone could choose what instrument they wanted to play, and I chose something that was a cross between a harp and a violin. I was the only one to choose something different, as everyone else picked the instrument they played in high school (I played the sax in school).
I was then sitting and talking to my best friend, but in my mind I was thinking how to get out of the performance, how to sneak out, without being caught. The band director paid $20.00 per person to play, and nobody was allowed to leave.
The scene changed and I was across the road and down the side of a hill from the truck stop.
I saw an old swing set and around it were old, dead bushes with pale yellow stems and shoots. The stems twisted and turned among themselves, and caught up in the tangles were small stuffed animals (mostly teddy bears).
I plucked some of the animals from the bushes, and as soon as I did the swing set turned into an old shack.
I then found myself standing inside the shack, along with all the band members. Although nobody said anything, we all knew our fate was doomed and we would never be allowed to leave the shack.
Everyone also knew that I picked the animals and was responsible for our fate. I was standing there looking at everyone and thinking, “Oh, she’s skinny; she’ll be one of the first to die” and “She’s quite heavy, she’ll probably be the last.”
The scene changed again and I was at a supermarket. I was allowed to get a few items, but only if I stood in line behind a baby. If I did, then the baby would have to go back to the shack with me.
I didn’t want the baby to go to the shack, as it would be there the rest of its life, but on the other hand I was glad that we would have food to eat.
I was then back at the shack, lying down in a corner reading.
It was a ritual that every morning this lady would stop by the shack on her way to work. On this morning when she stopped by, she shut the door behind her and everyone said,
“Oh! You shouldn’t have done that!”
The lady said (even though she knew it was me),
“Did someone pick the stuffed animals?”
She then came over to where I was and turned on a light so I could read better.
