  3. Dream: I was in a room with mother who passed away 18 months ago and beside me was a large ceramic pot, taller than myself. Inside the pot was a bright blue fish with black scales as large as my forearm. It was desperately trying to get out of the pot and I felt very distressed about this. It finally threw itself out of the pot onto a tiled floor and flapped about as I tried to pick it up. My mum was telling me not to worry. I awoke feeling out of breath and worried.

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking Characteristics: Fish sometimes symbolize an aspect of the dreamer that needs a very specific environment in order to thrive and survive.

The predominant theme here is of a creature too big for itís setting Ė it is not supported by itís environment, but is rather contained and confined by it. When we outgrow something: a job, a relationship, a style of reacting to stress, the dreaming mind reacts strongly to the subjective results. We can develop psychological allergies to something that weíve been overexposed to without relief, or we can begin experiencing symptoms of anxiety or panic that arenít necessarily supported by objective evaluation. As in all forms of nature, we too are creatures, and need to move forward when we have outgrown our shells. Look for and insist upon a situation that will afford you the ability to be true (to a reasonable extent) to your own nature, and which will let you expand as you grow.
