Tell Me Your Wildest Dreams!
Every Wednesday I venture away from romantic/erotic fiction writing to interpret your dreams. Have a recurring or puzzling dream? Send it to and I'll try to shed some light on Wild Dreams Wednesday!

This Week's Wildest Dream:

“I was by a seashore. From time to time giant waves would roll onto the beach and pick me up. Though I was fully clothed, I just nonchalantly ducked under or floated over the waves, but I was worried that the stuff in my purse was getting soaked and ruined. I tried going inside a nearby cement tunnel, but the waves kept coming."

Water in dreams always signifies emotion. Here, tumultuous waves threaten to overtake you, suggesting powerful emotion that would normally carry you away. However, you manage to ride over or duck under the tide.

Purses in dreams are like those in life--they hold our identities (driver's license), power (money), even secrets and dreams. Depending on how a tunnel is shown in a dream, it can represent births and new beginnings/information (emerging from a tunnel, seeing a light at the end of a tunnel), a need for security and assurance (retreating to the womb), or closed-mindedness (dark tunnels). Cement indicates gluing together new ideas.

Combining the above concepts, I'd say you've recently been weathering emotional challenges that normally get the best of you. Perhaps you've been ducking arguments or crying jabs by “mixing” ideas of just going with the flow and retreating when emotions ride too high. However, you worry that this passive approach places your sense of identity and empowerment in jeopardy. These are affected by a buildup of emotion you can't escape forever. The dream is advising you to find a “drain” valve or outlet for these emotions before you get swept away by the tide.


Wild Dreams Wednesdays interpretation by romance author/editor Lisa Logan is meant to be used for education and entertainment purposes only. I hope you've found this week's post useful! Stay tuned until next Wednesday, when we again delve deep into our Wildest Dreams. Sleep Tight!

Dpn't know how you know all this stuff, Lisa. But you do. Very interesting.

Ah, my ways are mysterious...;)

Okay, not really. Dreams have been an interest of mine since I received a book on interpretation over ten years ago. A variety of sources, intuition plus background guide me in piecing together the fascinating and often bizarre symbolism. Fun!
