[In the begginning], I’m standing on a subway platform.

[In the middle] of my dream, I notice boxes and boxes of Pacifica candles lying in a corner. I contemplate whether I should take one because they’ve been there a long time.

[At the end]  I decide to take a tall, dark one and hop on the train, hoping nobody notices what I’ve done. I take it slowly out of my bag and carve Ogun’s symbol on it.

Symbolism (from dreammoods.com):

Candle: To see an unlit candle denotes feelings of rejection or disappointments. You are not utilizing your fullest potential. If you try to light the candle, but it won’t light, then it represents grief. You are in denial about something. To see a candle blow out in your dream indicates that you are surrendering a significant aspect of yourself. You are letting go of something that used to be important to you.

Subway: To dream that you are in the subway denotes that you are reaching your goal via subconscious methods. By recognizing the hidden aspects of yourself, you are able to move forward in life.

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. It also signifies a lack of love and lack of support. 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.

Stealing: To dream that you are stealing suggests that you are feeling deprived. The locale (at home, the office, at school, etc) of where the stealing takes place is indicative of your neediness. Alternatively, stealing signifies unrealized and unfulfilled goals. You may have set your goals too high.


I’m trying really hard to understand myself and become a better actor.
