There was a dream I had last week. I vaguely remember it, so I will be providing a brief past tense synopsis rather than a present tense view.**

My dream involved four men keeping me chained in a room in my home. I am not sure why. They didn’t physically harm me. They just kept me locked in a room. At one point, I was set free and then I pretended to befriend them so I could find out details to turn them in to the police. It was extremely creepy. 

To dream that you are held captive suggests that you are feeling trapped in some aspect or circumstances of your waking life. You may feel trapped in your career, relationship or life in general. Alternatively, captivity dreams indicate something you are refusing to acknowledge or something that you are in denial about. 

I don’t know how I feel about this interpretation. I don’t feel trapped by anything in my life. I feel like there’s something else. I’m going to branch out to other dream interpretation sites.

One way trip. 

**There is a place I’ve visited a few times in recent months in my dreams. A place I’ve never been to in reality.**

I am driving in a rural setting. I turn down a road with many trees on both sides. It is a dirt road, kind of like a logging road. Just miles of dirt and shaded path ahead. I continue to drive. The road begins spiraling around a mountain and ascending. I finally reach the top. However, this is a one way. When you see the top of the road, it dead ends at the top of the mountain. The only way to the bottom is to climb down the other side like an obstacle course. You have to jump over huge boulders and balance yourself on fallen tree trunks. I finally make it. I turn around and see a brown, furry creature chasing me. 


To see a mountain in your dream signifies some major obstacle and/or challenge that you have to overcome. If you are on top of the mountain, then it indicates that you have achieved and realized your goals. You have recognized your full potential. Alternatively, mountains denote a higher realm of consciousness, knowledge, and spiritual truth.

To dream that you are going around a mountain implies that you are tackling some obstacle in a roundabout manner. You are taking an indirect approach. Alternatively, dreaming of going around the mountain means that you are pacing yourself. You know your limitations.

To dream that you are going through an obstacle course symbolizes the hardships and difficulties that you are experiencing in your waking life. It represents the things that you must overcome in order to reach your goals. The elements in the obstacle course is analogous to the barriers and problems in your life.

To dream that have reached a dead end indicates that you have come to an abrupt end in the pursuit of your goals. You must find another way to achieve your goals because the current path is not working out. Alternatively, the dream may be telling you that you are going nowhere. Perhaps, the dream is symbolic of a dead end job or a dead end relationship. You need to reevaluate your options. 

To dream that you are being chased signifies that you are avoiding a situation that you do not think is conquerable. It is a metaphor for some form of insecurity. In particular, to dream that you are chased by an animal represents your own unexpressed and unacknowledged anger which is being projected onto that animal. Alternatively, you may be running away from a primal urge or fear.

I am sitting on a couch between my sister in law and another family member. My husband’s cousin comes in and asks for someone to walk with him to a vending machine. He gets a soda and gives me a pile of money. I am back on the couch with my sister in law. She says she is broke and needs lunch money for work. I give her $5.00. I turn to talk to the other family member for a few minutes. I turn back and notice money missing from my bag. I see a $10 and $20 dollar bills in her bag!! 


To dream that someone is stealing something from you indicates that you are experiencing an identity crisis or are suffering from some sort of loss in your life. Alternatively, the dream means that someone has stolen your success or has taken credit for something you did. Perhaps you feel that you have been treated unfairly.

To dream that you lose money suggests that you are lacking ambition, power and self-esteem. You are experiencing unhappiness and setbacks in your waking life. You may also be feeling weak, vulnerable, and out of control in your waking life.

Five represents your persuasiveness, spontaneity, boldness, daring nature, action, and humanity. The number five represents the five human senses and thus may be telling you to be more “sensitive” and be more in tune to your senses. Alternatively, the number five may reflect a change in your path or that you need to alter your course. It is also the link between heaven and earth.

Ten corresponds to closure, great strength, and gains. It also refers to the law or to the ten commandments. 

The number twenty indicates that you are in need of support. Perhaps you are feeling withdrawn and isolated. The dream may signify having 20:20 vision. You are seeing something more clearly now.

To see or dream that you are on a couch represents rest, relaxation, laziness or boredom. It may also mean you need to clear you mind and thoughts. 

To see a vending machine in your dream represents the things that are just outside of your grasp or reach. You need to invest a little more effort before your goals come to fruition. Consider what is inside the vending machine for further significance.

To see your sister-in-law in your dream represents characteristics in her that you find within your own self. Consider also your waking relationship with her. If you dream that you are arguing with your sister-in-law, then it suggests that you are refusing to acknowledge or accept certain qualities of your sister-in-law.

I am in an apartment building. I just moved in with my husband, mom, dad, brother and sister. (My son is not in the dream) The place looks amazing at first. Then, it flashes to nasty rooms and trash everywhere. 

I cannot drive my car into my little driveway because someone has their truck and trailer stretched across it. I find the landlord and demand it be moved or I am moving. 

Flashes to nightmarish, truly horrific, things. Not necessarily blood, guts and gore. But downright eery things. 

I go into someone else’s apartment to compare it to ours. They have bars on the windows. I go to use the bathroom (recurring dream theme). We don’t have a private bathroom. It’s a communal one with stalls. I am using the bathroom when I look down and see black boots and look up to see eyes watching me. I start screaming and banging on the door. The person runs. 

Flash to the driveway. The truck is gone, but I can’t bring my car. Unsure why. 

/wake up/

Eeriest dream I’ve experienced in a long time. I was trapped in that place.

Brother Murdered

I am in a huge house, not a mansion, but a three story house. The beginning is fuzzy. We receive news that my brother has been murdered. We are not sure of the murderer. My friend and his friend (some lead singer in a band) put up fliers inquiring for information in regards to the suspect. They gather some leads and evidence and put it on our refrigerator. I start crying every time I pass the refrigerator. It is unreal that my brother is truly gone. I grab the paper off the refrigerator and go upstairs.

My next image is of myself walking down a hallway and going into a huge bedroom. I sit down in front of the computer with the evidence in hand. I start looking at it and trying to piece it together. There are bits and pieces, names of places, numbers. I am not sure how it is all related. I decide to Google one of the phone numbers. It is a number that apparently had called my brother the day he died. I look at the search results and gasp. The number belongs to the company my friend’s friend (the singer) works at…And his friend, Chloe, who has been helping us investigate the murder walks in acting shady. I close the window on the computer and hide the paper.

The next day, I am in a building when someone tells me they have leads on the murders….Chloe and the singer! I go home and act nonchalant. The TV plays some information naming Chloe as a suspect. I pretend not to hear. She walks out of the room.

//wake up//

Dreaming about the death of a loved one suggests that you are lacking a certain aspect or quality that the loved one embodies. Ask yourself what makes this person special or what you like about them. It is that very quality that you are lacking in your own relationships or circumstances. 

Note also that dreams of murder occur frequently during periods of depression.

To see a killer in your dream suggests that an essential aspect of your emotions have been cut off. You feel that you are losing your identity and your individuality. Alternatively, this dream may represent purification and the healing process. You are standing up for yourself and putting a dramatic end to something.

To dream about the death of a loved one suggests that you are lacking a certain aspect or quality that the loved one embodies. Ask yourself what makes this person special or what you like about them. It is that very quality that you are lacking in your own relationship or circumstances.

Doughnut Shop Stairs

I am in this HUGE new doughnut shop. There are so many people, it is like a doughnut mall. There are three floors. I keep seeing people placing orders and then going upstairs to get the final product. A huge splash of water comes through the store. For a moment, I think they are going to close the store, but they stay open. I place my order. Then, I wait around. Finally, I see the stairs I am to climb to get my doughnuts. They are very curvy and steep. I finally get to the top and wait on the doughnuts. I see lots of workers looking around.

/wake up/

To see a doughnut in your dream represents the Self. It suggests that you may be feeling lost and still trying to find yourself and your purpose in life. Alternatively, it refers to growth, development and nurturance. You are not yet completely whole.

To see a staircase in your dream symbolizes change and transformation.

To see spiral or winding stairs signify growth and/or rebirth.

Going up a staircase is generally a positive symbol of achievement, ambition, and pursuit of your goals.

Stairs, bathrooms, pillows

Saturday night 01/02/2016

I am in a store purchasing items. It seems to be a store like Sears or JC Penney. I am pushing my cart around. I come up to a bin with these pillows. They are $3.98 each. I decide to purchase one and place it into the cart. I start wandering around the store again. A lady approaches me and suggests I purchase two more. I decide to go back and the bin is no longer there! I walk around the store seeking the pillows.

I woke up.

Monday morning ;nap 01/04/2016

I am in a large crowd in a building with a lot of people. There are tall shelves separating the groups. It looks just like an overhead view of a library, essentially. As soon as the hip hop music plays, the crowds go closer and closer to the front of the ‘lines’. It is weird. I get through the crowd, because I am seeking a bathroom. Each one I find has people in it. I find another and there is no privacy in it. Then, a family member comes along and goes up this hill/stair thing and says,”There is a private one up here.” I go up there and see the bathroom.

I woke up.


To dream that you are in a public restroom with no stalls or that there are a lot of people around while you are trying to do your business signifies your frustrations about getting enough privacy. You are always putting others ahead of your own needs. As a result, you are lacking a sense of personal space. Alternatively, the dream indicates that you are having difficulties letting go of old emotions, especially if the toilet is dirty. You are afraid that if you reveal these feelings, then others around you will judge and criticize you.

To dream that you can not find the bathroom or that you have difficulties finding one indicates that you have difficulties in releasing and expressing your emotions. You are holding back your true feelings about something.

To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs indicate that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual, emotional or material journey. The dream is also analogous to material and thoughts that are coming to the surface. 

To see a hill in your dream symbolizes challenges or obstacles that you will confront in the near future.

To see a pillow in your dream represents comfort. relaxation, ease, and/or luxury. You need to take it easy on yourself. Alternatively, the dream indicates laziness. 

To dream that you cannot find what you are shopping for suggests that you are trying to find a solution to some life problem.

Three signifies life, vitality, inner strength, completion, imagination, creativity, energy, self-exploration and experience. Three stands for a trilogy, as in the past, present, and future or father, mother, and child or body, mind, and soul, etc.  Dream of the number three may be telling you that the third time is the charm. 

Nine denotes completion, closure, rebirth, inspiration, and reformation. You are on a productive path, seeking to improve the world. The number nine also symbolizes longevity. 

Eight stands for power, authority, success, karma, material gains, regeneration, and wealth. When the number eight appears in your dream, trust your instincts and intuition. Alternatively, the number eight may be a pun on “ate”. Perhaps there is some information that you need to digest.
