Doctor exam Dream and Naked in public
Posted by: admin - March 13, 2007
Lately there have been several questions submitted about dreams. Dr. Freud called dreams the “royal road” to the unconscious. Not everyone remembers their dreams; even though everyone has dreams. In ancient times dreams were thought to be communications from supernatural beings or divine messages from God. Whatever you think of them, they’re fun and informative to work with. Question: Dear David, My 24 year old daughter is having dreams that she is really disturbed about. Currently she is in a relationship with a guy she really cares about, but who only wants a friendship. She’s had this dream three times where she is lying on a table with her stomach being examined by several doctors. They tell her there is nothing they can do for her, and that she is dying. So of course, she is worried silly. Worried Mom Answer: Dear Mom, Medical examinations in dreams represent feelings that we are being “analyzed” and “evaluated” very strongly. Due to your daughter’s current romantic dilemma, the doctors most likely reflect your daughter’s feelings that she is being examined by the guy she cares for. Your daughter’s stomach area being examined hint to a symbolic pregnancy. Pregnancy in dreams symbolizes hope for the future. Your daughter’s feeling in the dream—that she will die because there is nothing the doctors can do— may reflect her disappointment that her relationship with her boyfriend is coming to an end. Death in dreams is a common symbol for change and separation. Assure your daughter that it should not be interpreted literally. Instead, her dream is reflecting a normal period of transition, where a period of expectation for the future is passing away. Love has its share of pain, but your daughter’s dreams reflect a healthy transition in her emotional life, as she lets go of one phase, and prepares to grow into a new stage of development. Question: Dear David, I’ve been having this disturbing dream lately where I’m walking around downtown (where I work) and suddenly I realize that I’m naked, but nobody seems to care except me. What’s up with this? Ready for the Naked Truth Answer: Dear Ready, Usually dreams like this symbolize a sense of unfamiliar exposure due to some change in circumstance. Any situation that puts us on the spot in a way we aren’t used to can provoke a variation of this dream, which is actually quite common. Ironically, positive change is often the culprit because as we excel we are more often asked to step into unfamiliar territory. A promotion, a new romance, involvement with higher management, or other public attention can make us feel as if we are “on display.” A positive note is that others are oblivious to your condition. You may feel naked, but others are more concerned with their own problems, giving you time to adjust to the situation.
