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:

"There was a little boy and girl in a parking lot. I see this white van speeding,and she runs over the little boy then stops. I'm yelling at the top of my lungs 'oh my God' and running towards the van and boy."
--Liz on Twitter

This seems like a very disturbing and violent dream, what with the death of an innocent child, but there is some mercifully simple symbolism behind it.

Vans represent things we "haul" in life, the load we bear as we move along on our path. Children, regardless of sex, represent childlike aspects of ourselves, or else childhood memories or traits. Death often does not mean literal death, but losing a part of ourselves, changes or transitions.

Here, perhaps life's burdens have struck down some of the childlike fun you experienced in the past. In this dream there was both a boy and one girl, and it is the boy who is killed. Perhaps you perceive the more active rough/tumble/athletic aspect of your youth has been lost. Maybe you were a tomboy or always "one of the guys," and this has been compromised. A woman driving the burdens of life smashes this aspect, as the demands of womanhood robs you of the pleasure of a carefree, "one of the guys" existence. The girl is left behind, but bereaved by the loss. Another interpretation of this is that you may feel opportunities are denied you because of your gender.


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!

Thanks so much! I was fortunate enough to hear back from her and she saw some definite correlations. Fascinating how dreams talk to us!
