Dream of the Month (November 2000)
Dr. Holloway's Comments:
Identifying Characteristics: Fish often represent the emotional life of the dreamer.
Set against the background of very real challenges in your life, this dream zeroes in on your innermost feelings and needs. The dirty water represents the factors that are “contaminating” your sense of well-being, and it also reflects a confusion between certain thoughts and emotions. (Mud and dirty water often represent conflicting thoughts and emotions.)
When a dream shows us repeating an attempted solution without results, this usually implies there is a similar pattern operating in waking life. You may be trying to use will power against emotions, or diminishing your own needs as “weak” or “selfish.” Although brave, these reactions are bound to keep you fixed in an endless loop. Neither tossing away your feelings, (discarding the water) nor keeping a lid on them will be of help in this situation. If you are acting as a support to others during had times, it is essential that you find some people or resources to support your own needs as well. Check in with friends, relatives and others who may be able to let you unload or bounce ideas off them. You need emotional room to breathe, and you’ll feel much more in control and better able to help those you love when your own balance is restored.
