Of Naps and Dreams

Joy has been sick, I went garage sailing this morning with Lori, will post about Joy's find later.
We were both SOO tired, after lunch we took a nap.Soo..then the phone woke me up...I have learned NOT to answer the phone then....I won't remember anything, and this was what I awoke from.....
I was taking a nap, and kept dreaming, knowing I was dreaming...I was at a school playground, with a shopping cart that was empty. My blue pickup truck was inside the gate, and I was waiting (Patiently) for school to get out. I saw a teacher I knew on the playground..but ignored her and pretended not to see her. Many children were playing, then the bell rang and they went inside from recess. I thought that was cool-I could play on the grounds by myself, I kept on pushing the cart across the playground. I moved my truck through the gate, and closed the gate. I pushed the cart, and Smacked into a post. I laid down and went to sleep.
To dream that you are in school, signifies feelings of inadequacy and childhood insecurities that have never been resolved. It may relate to anxieties about performance and abilities. You may also be going through a "spiritual learning" experience. School may be a metaphor for the lessons that you are learning from your waking life.
To dream that you are waiting, is indicative of issues of power/control and feelings of dependence/independence, especially in a relationship. Consider how you feel in the dream while you were waiting. If you are patient, then you know things will happen at their own pace. If you are impatient, then it may mean that you are being too demanding or that your expectations are too high.

Alternatively, the dream may denote your expectations and anxieties about some unknown situation or decision. There is a sense of anticipation. You are ready to take action.


To see your teacher (past or present) in your dream, suggests that you are seeking some advice, guidance, or knowledge. You are heading into a new path in life and ready to learn by example or from a past experience. Alternatively, it may relate to issues with authority and seeking approval. You may going through a situation in your waking life where you feel that you are being treated like a student or in which you feel you are being put to a test.

To dream that you are on a playground, indicates your desires to escape from your daily responsibilities. Consider also objects in the playground as expressing or your need to express some aspect of yourself.
