-From Wednesday 09/23-
I am with my family at a gas station. It is on a busy highway. It is really dark outside. While we are pumping gas, we hear a baby crying in the far off distance. At first, I cannot make out where the sound is coming from. Then, I point across the highway to an old abandoned building. It looked like a factory from long ago. My parents and myself go over to see if someone has left a baby there.
We look around and from behind an old crate, a man comes out holding his baby. He holds a gun up to our faces and says we must do exactly what he says. He gets in the car with us and goes back to a hotel room down the highway. He never explains the reasoning for holding us, but every time we try to leave the room, he becomes very aggressive. A few days pass and my family and myself hatch a plan: earn his trust.
Slowly, we begin to earn his trust. Eventually he allows us to drive to the store and trusts us to come back. For some reason, near the end, we end up going back every time. We never try to ask for help. Stockholm Syndrome?
To dream of a crying baby symbolizes a part of yourself that is deprived of attention and needs to be nurtured. Alternatively, it represents your unfulfilled goals and a sense of lacking in your life. If you dream that a baby is neglected, then it suggests that you are not paying enough attention to yourself. You are not utilizing your full potential. Alternatively, this dream could represent your fears about your own children and your ability to protect and to provide for them.
Dreaming of an abandoned or run-down factory means that you have broken from your routine or have escaped from a monotonous aspect of your life. You are leaving a meaningless past behind and are thinking for yourself.
To dream that you are a hostage indicates that you are feeling victimized or powerless. You feel limited in your choices or physically immobilized. Perhaps this dream is paralleling some situation/difficulties in your daily life or relationship. Alternatively, to dream that you are a hostage suggests that a part of yourself is not fully expressed.
