Analysis of A Dream 2

For all you mediums, dream interpreters and psychology buffs I’m starting a new semi regular feature here on goJimmygo. One that’s right up your alley: I’m going to describe to you a dream that I had and I want to hear how you interpret it. I did this once before and got some great responses.

First, I’ll give you the dream I had in detail. At least from what I can recall about it. Next, I’ll give you some back story as to how this dream may have relation to my real life.

Finally, I’ll give you some of what I call “trigger events”. These are usually things that happen over the course of my waking hours earlier that may have “triggered” me having the dream. The trigger events usually happen during the day and the dream occurs that same night.

So, put on your thinking caps, light some incense, get out your Ouija board or crystal ball and show me the voodoo that you do so well:

My wife has just dropped me off at the airport and I’m going to take a trip to Seattle for the weekend. I’m not sure if it’s for business or pleasure. Quite frankly, I have no idea why I’m going. I have my bag sitting next to me and I’m sitting in the terminal. I really can’t wait to get there. I say goodbye to my wife and tell her I’ll see her on Monday.

It’s at this point that I realize I haven’t made any reservations to stay anywhere once I arrive in town. I usually make these plans far in advance to save money but now I’m just going to have to pay top dollar when I arrive in town. I am a bit upset with myself because I didn’t have the forethought to do something as simple as book a room somewhere and now I’m worried about finding a place to stay. The thought occurs to me that I may get there and have absolutely no where to stay!

I also discover that my wife has left her purse in the terminal and that I really need to go home and deliver it to her or else she won’t have it all weekend.  Which is exactly what I do (even though I have already arrived for my flight). I drop off the purse at home and then proceed back to the airport.

Back Story: I’ve always loved Seattle. Especially the Seattle Seahawks. Last October I flew out there just to see them play. I stayed in a hostel, which is one of those dormitory like places with nothing more than a bed and a bathroom. Very cost-effective when you consider you’d probably pay triple the amount to spend the night in a hotel.

Trigger Event: (Something during the course of the day that may have triggered me having this dream): I was watching a television show and one character mentioned “Seattle” in a sentence. It never went into any further detail. Just the word “Seattle”.

Looking forward to hearing your comments on this one.  Have a great week.

About James Wood

Influenced by life, love and the pursuit of the perfect song is what best describes my passion. I’m a closeted classic rock/metal-head from the 80′s who loves to write.

  1. face it..you need therapy, just like the rest of us. and just like the rest of us…who can afford it? better to keep doing the voodoo that you do (always loved that line) so well. vent on your blog, turn on the tunes and drift away.

    can’t wait to see what the experts have to say.

    happy monday, kath

  2. Do you dream in color or black and white. I heard a statistic about how only about 5% of people dream in color. And, do blind people see their dreams? I know your not blind, Jim, but your post has clicked so many (odd) thoughts.

    I hope you find the answers to your many issues…lol!!!

    • I’m happy to report that I most definitely do dream in color. I also have had dreams where I’ve had the sense of smell (flowers, food). I’m a very modernized dreamer.

      Glad my post sparked some odd thoughts. Nice to know I’m not alone.

  3. Your wife knows you’re not completely happy where you are in life (literally & figuratively) so she dumps you at the airport, sending you somewhere she thinks you will be happier. Dreaming that you have no place to stay means you’re anxious about the new direction you’re taking, but the fact that you get back on the flight after returning her purse to her, means you too realize it’s time to make a change.

    Also, your wife leaves her purse at the airport like a first date leaves her gloves in your car, basically to ensure she’ll see you again.

    Do I have a future in this, or what?

  4. I don’t think it has anything to do with Seattle Jim. Again, like the last dream, I think you have “reservations” (haha) about taking a step forward with a career, hobby… something that is in the back of your mind that you have always wanted to do. Take the step Jim, and don’t be afraid of the results…at least you tried and won’t regret NOT trying!

    • I think you might be right Sandy. There are a few things i have going on on the back burner that I’ve wanted to do. Maybe it’s time to move them forward…
