Dream of the Month (April 1997)
Dr. Holloway's Comments:
This is a scene of problem-solving. Heads often represent the intellect or conscious point of view, while hair can symbolize styles of thinking. Tangled or knotted hair in dreams often is associated with confused thinking and self-criticism. In this dream, the tangled hair of chains suggests a limitation or rigidity caused by confused and limited thinking. The dreamer untangles this mess, partly by turning the heads upside down (looking at options from another angle.) Since the dreamer is the only one who can help the situation, it is likely that she solves problems and clarifies situations for others with some regularity.
