analysis of a dream
Rosa dreamed: “We were celebrating my birthday in a karaoke bar. At first I didn’t want to go up to sing. I know that I’m bad at it, so I was very embarrassed to go off key and that everyone would laugh at me. But my friends insisted so much that finally I felt I had to. After all, everyone was there for me. By luck, I could chose my favorite song and I began to sing the there for me. By luck, I could chose my favorite song and I began to sing the first lines and I did it really well! People clapped enthusiastically, while I followed the lyrics on the screen. I surprised myself with my voice. I was signing a really tough Mariah Carey song and I did it better than her!”
When Rosa had this dream she was very worried about an important business meeting she had scheduled the following week. She hadn’t worked at the company very long and she was worried what her bosses and colleagues would think of her. The fact that she didn’t want to sing in karaoke reveals her fear of public speaking and being judged; however, her unconscious was calming her and encouraging her to do her best.The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke
