Dream 5: Part 1
Celebrating & Rushing
In the [beginning] of my dream, I’m getting ready to go out to a formal party with some of my friends, family members, and work colleagues. We’re all drinking champagne and are about to head out together. As I’m about to put on a dress I chose for the night (a long, white lace dress), I realize that there is a large yellow stain on the back. It’s tarnished. My mother then tells me it was frumpy and grandma-ish anyway, and she tells me to wear a much more revealing, short black one. I decide I have no choice, and wear it. I’ve always felt the most comfortable in black. I then hear my boss tell her husband that we’ll need 26 taxis in order to get everyone to the party.
Symbolism (from dreammoods.com):
Drinking: To dream that you are drinking alcohol denotes that you are seeking either pleasure or escape.
White Clothes: To dream that all your clothes in the closet are white suggests that you need to lighten up. … You need to change your attitude.
Black: Black symbolizes the unknown, the subconscious, danger, mystery, darkness, death, mourning, rejection, hate or malice. The color invites you to delve deeper in your subconscious in order to gain a better understanding of yourself. More positively, black represents potential and possibilities. It is like a clean or blank slate. If the feeling in the dream is one of joy, then blackness could imply hidden spirituality and divine qualities.
Twenty-six: Twenty-Six symbolizes the earth and karma.
I think I am trying to escape something. I know that when I go out to a big celebration, I will meet a lot of strangers. So I usually feel very uncomfortable with people getting to know me, because I feel I may intimidate them or scare them. Hence I choose a long, white lace dress. This doesn’t suit me however, and I know (and my mother does) that I should just be myself. The short, black, and revealing dress is much more me. I do have a darker personality and usually have a strong urge to analyze or ponder. I think the number 26 is very significant as well, because when it was said in my dream, it was much louder than the rest of the sounds. I think I’m going to be going on a journey where I will learn how to ground myself more and the importance of karma in acquaintances/friendships.
