Balloon

Dreaming of a balloon promotes reflection on the ideas of wholeness, freedom, and lightness. So you must meditate and contemplate calmly what concerns you from a broader view. In the case of a childish balloon that escapes from the dreamer’s hands, perhaps in real life you are letting good ideas escape. However, if you let it escape while admiring its flight it indicates intellectual progress. Now, if the balloon bursts it denotes superfluous thoughts. The vision of the balloon predicts short trips, but can also reveal an excessive lust for power.

Dreaming of getting up in the air in a balloon, on the other hand, indicates that you are going through a good time but you must not lose sight of everyday reality.

Baseball

Life is a game, and a dream that features baseball is asking you to recognize this. Hitting a home run in baseball has entered the zeitgeist as a standard expression to represent a successful endeavor, such that baseball in a dream may connect to such a desired outcome in a future event in your waking life. There are a number of sexual connotations connected to baseball, including the phallic shape of the baseball bat. Also, getting around the bases has long been analogous to various elements of foreplay. “Playing the field” is a phrase connected to being sexually active with a variety of partners. Consider your dream’s context in order to understand how to interpret a dream with baseball in it.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Best Friend

To see your friends in your dream, signifies aspects of your personality that have been developing and making you grow as a person.

The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself, so look to the friends you dreamed about for signals of personality traits they have that you desire in yourself, and work on those things. Additionally, dreaming of friends sometimes foretells that you will hear happy news from them.

If you dream of seeing your friends saddened or troubled, in your dream, they are headed for distress in real life.

To see a friend in your dream who you no longer see in real life (the friendship is over or they moved away), means you wish for a time in your past when you had no responsibilities and things were much simpler and more carefree. You may be wanting to escape the the pressures and stresses of growing up. Or, it could be a signal that it’s time to start acting more mature.

If you dream of a friend dying, it means you have anxious feelings or insecurities about the friendship - you may worry that your friend is becoming distant from you or losing interest in the relationship.

If you dream of a friend that you don’t really have in real life, this person actually represents another side of you - the part that is usually repressed and hidden.... My Dream Interpretation

Boy / Boyfriend

To dream of a boy who you are crushing on in real life is usually just a straightforward reflection of your feelings for him.

If you dream that you’re in love with a boy who you don’t like in real life, your dream could be telling you that you are overlooking good qualities in that person that makes him worth crushing on. Or, it could mean that he has some personality trait (like being outgoing or sporty) that you wish you had yourself. Dreams about your boyfriend often reflect real-life issues and concerns you have with him.

If you dream that you have a boyfriend, but in real life you don’t, it symbolizes some sort of partnership or commitment. Maybe you want a boyfriend in real life, a common meaning, or maybe the boyfriend in your dream stands for a friend that you have commitment issues with.

If your dream boyfriend is loving, this is your mind’s way of telling you that you are a special person worth loving. You’re giving yourself some much needed affection and praise. Dreaming about an ex-boyfriend can suggest unfinished or confusing issues related to that old relationship. It doesn’t necessarily mean you still care for him, although it can. Often, it means that your current love relationship is awakening similar feelings that you had with your ex, either positive or negative.

If you dream of dating a friend’s boyfriend, your dream is actually about your friend and not the guy. Your friend has certain qualities that you wish you had yourself. Also, you may feel like you’re not as close to this friend as you want to be these days.

If you dream that one of your friends is dating your boyfriend, you may not be getting as much as you want out of your love relationship. This dream can also indicate that you are envious of a quality that your friend has - you wish you were more like her in some way.

If you dreamed about your boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, you may be comparing yourself to the ex.

The dream is warning you not to make the same relationship mistakes that ended their relationship.

If you dream of having a different boyfriend than you actually do, think of how this “other” boyfriend acted in the dream. It may suggest something you want from your boyfriend - a way you wish he would act, or some way in which you’d like him to change.

If you are a girl and you dreamed of being a boy, look up the meaning under “Gender” Also see “Breaking Up”, “Cheating in a Relationship”, “Crush” and “Stealing a Boyfriend”... My Dream Interpretation

Drifting Balloon Kite Parachute

An awareness of drifting through the air in your dream may signal a similar lack of direction in waking life, but if you found yourself drifting towards dark clouds, could this be a warning that you are about to hit a potentially dangerous situation? Or were you terrified that you would plunge to earth in your dream? If you were, your unconscious may be reflecting your fear of losing control in waking life.

If a parachute suddenly appeared to help you land safely, perhaps you need to lower your aspirations, thereby escaping from an exciting but ultimately perilous situation.

If you find yourself flying in a hot-air balloon in your dream, do you long to rise above or overcome problems that are tying down your waking life?

Although you may have no sense of direction, flying in a hot-air balloon does allow you to take an overview of the situation, rather than letting your vision become bogged down with petty details.

If you dreamed that you clutched a balloon, let it go and watched it drift skyward wondering where it will go, your unconscious may be commenting on your own lack of direction or focus. On the other hand it may simply imply your desire to coast for a while through life. A dream of flying a kite may suggest that, although your feet are on the ground, you are starting to control your aspirations and direct them to a higher place.

If the kite disappeared from view or snapped from its string, then this may suggest that you have been overambitious and that your vision has lost touch with reality.... The Element Encyclopedia

You might be required to grab onto the feelings of youth that are missing from your current situations.

To dream that your ex-boyfriend is offering you opinions about a current boyfriend indicates that you will be less likely to make the same mistakes you did in a previous relationship.

To dream that you are getting a massage from an ex-boyfriend indicates that you should let go of some of the barriers that you have constructed. Putting faith in others is difficult but necessary for your well-being.

Ex-boy / Girlfriend 

It is very common for people to dream about ex-partners. Individuals that have been an important part of our lives continue to take up a part of our mind and heart.

It is impossible to very dramatically shut the person out of thoughts and feelings. Just because the relationship ends does not mean that all is finished. As we go through relationships we learn and at times pick up “battle wounds.” You will continue to dream about your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend until you “let go” of them on a very important level, or until you learned your lessons from that relationship. Either way, dreaming about your ex-romance does not predict future involvement. It may be wish-fulfillment, reliving memories, or working out old issues. Dreams are very rarely prophetic.

On the contrary, if your friend appears to be in bad shape, it means that the friendship is declining. It never hurts to visit whoever you have seen in dreams. || This dream also warns you to be alert, because it is possible that the oneiric friend represents an aspect of your personality that you do not accept or that you fear.

If a friend appears in your dream, pay attention to how they behave.

If they communicate with you in a familiar way, your dream may simply be reflecting the important part your friend plays in your life. If, however, your friend acts out of character or oddly, your unconscious may be warning you about an aspect of their character that makes you feel uneasy. On the other hand, your dream may be warning you that it is you rather than your friend that the dream is depicting, as the dreaming mind tends to project aspects of yourself onto people you are close to in waking life in order to make you aware of aspects of your personality that are being neglected or suppressed.

Friend / Companion

(1) If in your dream you have a friend or companion of the same sex as vourself, he or she may svmbolize your alter ego or shadow, which consists of those aspects of your personality that vou have so far neglected or repressed. (Even in real life we may project on to other people some of the contents of our own unconscious - repressed sadism, for instance, or an inferiority complex.)

The conscious ego, says Jung, cannot safely explore the deeper regions of the psyche without the shadow. In other words, there is little chance of re-rooting oneself in the true centre of one’s being without first acknowledging that there are aspects of one’s personality other than those that one has allowed into one’s conscious life. (On shadow).

(2) If the friend / companion in the dream is of the opposite sex, he or she may represent the animus / anima. The anima is the feminine side of a male psyche, the animus the masculine side of a female psyche. Acknowledgement of this contrasexual element in the psyche, and its assistance in tackling life’s tasks, are essential for personal wholeness (for anima / animus, see Brother / Sistcr, section (4))....

Friends

Our dreams are full of symbolism with their messengers being all different types of people.

It is very common to dream about our friends. These are individual that are emotionally valuable to us and we learn about ourselves through them. Dreams are very rarely prophetic, thus whether your dream was good or bad, don’t expect it to come true. This dream is more than likely attempting to bring up uncomfortable feelings that you have about yourself or others.

(Remember “uncomfortable” does not necessarily mean bad.) Dreams are created by our own thinking processes, our own thoughts (conscious or unconscious) create dreams, thus, the mind that created the dream also knows its meaning!!! See Also: People.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Friends

To see your friends in your dream, signifies aspects of your personality that have been developing and making you grow as a person.

The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself, so look to the friends you dreamed about for signals of personality traits they have that you desire in yourself, and work on those things. Additionally, dreaming of friends sometimes foretells that you will hear happy news from them.

If you dream of seeing your friends saddened or troubled, in your dream, they are headed for distress in real life.

To see a friend in your dream who you no longer see in real life (the friendship is over or they moved away), means you wish for a time in your past when you had no responsibilities and things were much simpler and more carefree. You may be wanting to escape the the pressures and stresses of growing up. Or, it could be a signal that it’s time to start acting more mature.

If you dream of a friend dying, it means you have anxious feelings or insecurities about the friendship - you may worry that your friend is becoming distant from you or losing interest in the relationship.

If you dream of a friend that you don’t really have in real life, this person actually represents another side of you - the part that is usually repressed and hidden.

To dream about an ex-friend means you wish for a time in your past when things were easier. Or, it could be a signal that it’s time to start acting more mature. You may also be missing this friend. Or, it could be that somebody you have just met reminds you of your ex-friend in some way.... My Dream Interpretation

Friends

Dreams which feature your friends or groups of friends highlight your feelings about them in waking life.

If the friends are people you do not know, they may represent your inner wisdom or intuition; the character of the friends will tell you what aspect of yourself they display. In dreams, friends behaving inappropriately can also represent your shadow self—the aspect of your personality that you are denying or have rejected. By portraying your shadow aspect as a friend or group of friends, your dreaming mind may be urging you to integrate neglected parts of your personality and restore inner harmony. You may have a dream in which a group of friends or people you know behave like total strangers to you, despite your efforts to remind them that you know each other. Such dreams are symbols of low self-confidence, but they can also suggest that you are trying too hard to be popular or to make a friendship work, because the desire for friendship is one-sided: your own....

Girl / Girlfriend

To dream of a girlfriend can be a straight-forward representation of feelings or anxieties about your real-life girlfriend.

If you don’t have one in real life, the dream represents a desire for more affection and appreciation. This dream may equally spring from anxiety or from sexual excitement. Often, the girl is actually a reflection of yourself, so take note of how you treat her, because that represents your own self-image. Most girlfriend dreams involve travel - if yours doesn’t, you may be overdue for a trip.

Nightmares And Scary Dreams: Frightening Dreams Are Your Friend

Even Nightmares Have a Helpful Purpose. A nightmare is easy to recognize: You wake up feeling anything from mild fright to a complete terror that can leave you screaming. Yet even dreams that scare you come to help. The topic of a dream may well bring up a serious and intense message. However, the message comes from a friendly source—your own psyche—whose purpose is to help and support you. No matter how serious or scary the subject of the dream, the communication from your psyche is an attempt to help you resolve the matter or get through a challenging situation.

WHY A DREAM TURNS INTO A NIGHTMARE. Most nightmares are simply mirrors of your internal fears and anxieties. Paradoxically, as the following reasons explain, it is those very fears and anxieties that “flip” a dream that is otherwise benign into a nightmare.

Think of a dream as a carriage transporting a needed insight about an important problem; the carriage is merely a vehicle for the helpful message. However, the topic of the dream terrifies you. The topic could be about a failing relationship or a career that is falling apart. Because of your terror, as you watch the carriage approach, the shadows of your fears make the carriage look scary. You do not notice the carriage is driven by your psyche, who approaches as a friend and just wants to help.

One way of coping with an anxiety or fear is to distance yourself from it—to push it away. This is a normal reaction. Yet the very act of distancing yourself from a scary topic that a dream may address is what “transforms” a normal dream image into a scary one. It is like a tasty dish that curdles, and your fear curdles the dream dish.

THERE ARE ONLY FRIGHTENED DREAMERS. Though it is natural to run from what scares you, the very act of doing so is what often creates a nightmare. That is why one way of looking at most nightmares is to say, “There are no scary dreams—only frightened dreamers.” If we could put aside all of our fears, there would be few nightmares or frightening dreams.

WHAT CAUSES NIGHTMARES. Mild to severe stress tends to be the main underlying cause of most frightening dreams.

• Daily Stress. Daily stress that ramps up your feelings is the most common reason behind a nightmare.

• Out-of-Control Fear and Anxiety. Like a wheel spinning out of control, negative emotions can unbalance your perceptions and lead to nightmares.

• Emotional Dissonance. The daily push-pull between competing feelings or choices is called “emotional dissonance.” If making a choice feels so unpalatable and impossible that no choice seems right, the pressure can drive you to the edge. This form of extreme anxiety, related to difficult or impossible choices, often invites nightmares.

• Physical or Mental Imbalance. Conditions like fever or depression can produce bad dreams. When the condition passes, the nightmares may disappear.

• Traumatic Events. Repeated bad dreams can happen after a painful event that leaves you feeling vulnerable, such as losing a loved one or the loss of a home after a natural disaster. As the psyche tries to digest the pain, the mind may replay the event as a nightmare. Such dreams are the psyche’s attempt to digest the painful feelings while you sleep. As a person heals and increases their coping skills, the bad dreams lessen and eventually disappear.

• The Nightmares of Those with an Artistic or Sensitive Temperament. Highly sensitive and creative individuals tune in more deeply to the world’s pain and suffering, and as a result, they often report nightmares. A man at a seminar shared his constant nightmares about war scenes and mangled bodies, even though he lived a normal life and worked as a bus driver. Digging deeper, he began to see that he was tuning in to the daily pain that he saw on the faces of his passengers. Witnessing their distress gave his sensitive heart emotional indigestion, which he experienced as frequent nightmares.

• Traumatic Stress. Those with a medical condition called post-traumatic stress disorder, such as combat veterans or rape victims, can have nightmares that are different in content and structure to regular nightmares. Experiencing extreme forms of trauma can produce nightmares that are more severe and that disrupt sleep cycles, which regular nightmares do not. While researching the nightmares of combat veterans, I created presleep stories as a sleep aid that attempts to restore the normal sleep cycles of combat veterans; details are available at InterpretADream.com.

NIGHTMARES: THREE TYPES

Like other dreams, nightmares can be distinguished by their origin and purpose. The most common nightmares engage your struggle to grow in character and personality. A few bad dreams deal with specific life fears, and fewer still predict actual tragic events.

1: The Most Common Type of Nightmare

A NIGHTMARE THAT UNVEILS A NEGATIVE CHARACTER TRAIT. Facing an unpleasant truth about yourself is never easy. Everyone glosses over shortcomings like anger, acting stupid, or failing at something, and no one wants to face a weakness. As a result, when a dream holds up a mirror about a trait that does not jive with your “I am great” image, your normal reaction is to say, “That can’t be me.” In colloquial terms, such nightmares expose your blind spots, which is an unpleasant experience for everyone.

For example, a man had a nightmare about a raging bull charging through his grocery store and wondered if the dream was a warning that vandals would soon raid his premises. Since most dreams are about you—the dreamer, he came to see that the bull was a metaphor for his short temper when dealing with employees. Seeing himself as an out-of-control bull was not easy, but the image produced the desired effect. The man softened his attitude and as a result, the atmosphere at the grocery store became more relaxed and as a bonus, his sales improved.

When a nightmare acts as a mirror of a not-so-great trait, it invites you to grow into a better version of yourself. After an initial “ouch,” you realize that the dream is an ally, helping you correct what could cause problems down the road.

2: A Scary Dream That You Meet Less Often

FRIGHTENING DREAMS THAT PORTRAY ACTUAL, SPECIFIC FEARS. One of the functions of dreaming is to process your emotions. When a fear gets out of hand, a nightmare that relates to that fear is the equivalent of a pressure cooker’s safety valve that allows the hot steam to escape. In this case, the experience of having the nightmare, in and of itself, becomes an outlet for your exploding feelings.

Acting like an emotional digestion system, fear-processing nightmares let you experience a fear as an external picture that your mind can examine and label. A “see it, name it, and label it” nightmare helps you digest your fear, and as a result, whatever tied you up in knots begins to unravel. Such nightmares handle actual fears, one piece at a time, until they disappear. You may encounter a sequence of nightmares during a time of enormous challenge such as a divorce or the sudden loss of a loved one. Then one day, a morning arrives when you feel a sense of peace. You do not know why you feel better, but you know you have turned a corner. Your dream digestion system—that you experienced as nightmares—has done its work.

Nightmares that deal with true fears come with a bonus. A bad dream that relates to a painful issue can include an insight about how to handle what frightens you. A woman kept dreaming of a terrified young girl who walks to the edge of a murky black pond in the middle of the night. As she is about to fall into the deep black water, she sees a light in the distance and becomes aware that the light can lead her to safety. Upon discussion, those images brought back memories of the dreamer’s terror of being raped as a young girl. The light in the distance made her realize that she could resolve the unexpressed pain that had been festering for years. Thanks to the dream’s metaphor of a distant light as a place of safety, the dreamer became aware that she needed a counselor who could help her confront the emotional leftovers of her childhood trauma.

3: Actual Warnings—A Rare Type of Frightening Dream

FRIGHTENING DREAMS AS TRUE WARNINGS. Most scary dreams are stress-related, a few may tussle with your actual fears, while a miniscule percent can be actual warnings about something dire. Nightmares can warn you about the possibility of a real tragedy that may involve death, serious illness, or a natural disaster—whether in your life, someone around you, or in your community. Or sometimes they are warnings about less serious matters.

LESS URGENT, YET TRUE WARNING DREAMS. Before examining frightening dreams that are dire warnings, let’s take a look at dreams that address issues which are not life threatening, yet still urgent. For example, a dream may give you a heads up about how your words hurtfully impacted another’s feelings that you missed, and as a painful issue, it becomes cloaked in scary images. Or, a dream may point out what will happen if you keep eating three desserts a day; seeing what you look like in a dream, with an extra fifty pounds on you, can be pretty scary. Or, a frightening dream may point out a topic such as an unpleasant relationship, that you have put on hold, which now needs attention. Because these less urgent issues deal with topics that make you anxious, the warning dream can still be experienced as a nightmare. Such not-so-dire warning dreams touch upon intense topics that are not life threatening, but can still intensely shake you up.

DREAM EXAMPLE: A FRIGHTENING DREAM ABOUT A NORMAL ISSUE—MY DAUGHTER IS IN A CAR CRASH. A mother dreamed that her daughter was in a car crash, and from a distance, she watched as her child was taken to the hospital. Afterward, a doctor announced that her daughter was okay. The dream felt so intense that the mother woke up terrified, fearing for her daughter’s safety. The mother brought up her dream at a conference. A conversation brought out how, at the time of the dream, her only daughter announced that she was about to relocate because her new husband had been transferred to a job a thousand miles away. Since mom and daughter had never lived more than a few streets apart, the mother experienced a nightmare that registered her shock and distress at the news. Nothing terrible had happened. The nightmare simply registered the mother’s reaction to the sudden, unexpected news of being separated from her daughter.

A TRUE WARNING NIGHTMARE ABOUT A POTENTIAL TRAGEDY. Though extremely rare, a nightmare can be a warning about an actual tragedy as a type of ESP dream, as in the following example.

DREAM EXAMPLE: A NIGHTMARE AS A TRUE WARNING—MY DAUGHTER IS IN A CAR CRASH. Another mother had several dreams that showed her only teenage daughter getting into a car with friends, then seeing the car in a deadly crash. Each time she had the dream, she debated whether to talk to her daughter about safe driving with her teenage friends but decided against it. Sadly, the repetitive dreams turned out to be an actual warning and she lost her only daughter. Meeting this woman at a seminar, I marveled at the grace with which the mother had resolved to learn about dreams, and to use future warnings for herself and loved ones. That took great courage.

Only the divine hand can know whether a tragedy foreshadowed in a dream can be averted. However, no matter how a predicted event turns out, such actual warning nightmares serve a constructive purpose. On the one hand, they give a dreamer time to build up their strength and cushion the shock of the actual event, if it comes about. On the other hand, according to stories exchanged in dream circles, such warning dreams can, at times, avert the real danger.

True dream warnings about dire events are extremely rare. They have noticeable features like repetition, intense emotions and literal details.

Playing Cards In Dreams

Long before people used cards to play games, they were used to foretell the future. In fact, playing cards were invented for divination rather than for entertainment. Bear in mind that dreams comment on future possibilities rather than predict the future, but if a particular card is highlighted in your dream, the following traditional divinatory meanings may suggest possible situations you might like to encourage or avoid in your waking life. First of all, the suits are associated with the four elements as follows: Hearts—Water; Clubs—Fire; Diamonds—Earth; Spades—Air. The individual card meanings are as follows:

Ace of Hearts: Love and happiness; a particularly favorable card that indicates troubles lifting.
