Hello everyone. I posted this on another board last week without any insight on this. This dream has "haunted" me since then. I need someone to shade some light on this. Below is what I posted on another board:

Hi Everyone!!!

Last night I dreamed that I was cleaning my house. It was very very messy. Also, I had extra rooms in my house. What stood out to me the most in my dreams were the bathrooms. I don't have any kids but it was a little boy in my dream that was my son and we were cleaning out the tub. I remember seeing a forest greenish wash cloth over the faucet in the tub. I picked it up and a bunch of ants were under it. I told my "son" that someone must to put some sugar under there and ask him if he did it and he said no.

So I was walking through the rooms in the house - cleaning and I saw my mother. She passed away 3 years ago. I don't know what she was saying to me but it wasn't anything bad that I can remember. Anyway, I remember going into another bathroom that had a shower stall only - kind of like a gym shower stall. The water was on and I remember seeing that it was partially clean. I remember saying to myself in the dream that I'm going to let the water run longer to wash the rest of the dirt out of the shower.

I was proud that I got my house clean and I think I was telling my mother that I was proud too. Then I remember that I didn't clean my bathroom in my bedroom and I panicked because my older brother - estranged in real life -was in my bedroom sleep. I didnt want him to see it like that because it was in a horrible condition. So I went to tell him not to use my bedroom because the toilet wasn't working. I lied. Before I got it out, he opened his eyes and smiled at me and said I already cleaned it up for you and he did. I was so embarrased because we don't have a good relationship and I was worried that he was going to tell everybody about the bathroom. Although, I was embarassed, I was grateful at the same time because of his help. I remember saying to myself that if someone mentioned the condition of the bathroom I would tell them that I have no energy and sometimes its hard for me to keep things clean. I remembered saying that I'm so tired and I have no energy.

Ironically, my energy levels are low.

Anyway, If someone can give me so insight into this dream, I will be so very grateful.

Thanks

OK Tattwo,

Everybody else seems to have left this place.  I'm not so smart to get out.  I'm still here.

Your house in dreams is symbolic of your life, specifically your body.  The bathrooms are the place where you get cleaned up and, um, eliminate waste.  It's not the room you want on display for company.

"I was proud that I got my house clean..."

So you have your house (your body) in order.  Great!

"I'm going to let the water run longer to wash the rest of the dirt out of the shower."

Another Great!

I see a Tattwo who has done a real "spring cleaning" in her life.  And, yes, her mother would approve.  I see somebody who recognized the problems in her life and addressed them head on, and in doing so rose above the conflict and found an identity, an inner peace.  You found a sense of self which had been missing for so many years.

Now you can face the world as you really are.  "Come clean" with yourself first, and then it will be easier to come clean with those around you.  If you feel really tired, say so.  Don't deny or dance around the issue.

Your dream is all about dealing with those parts you want to keep hidden.  If they need some work, do the work!  It's not so complicated.  If a part of your house needs cleaning, you can either shut it off or clean it.  Same with your life.  I suspect the perfectionist in you is not yet satisfied.  Well guess what?  She will never be satified.  You will never be perfect, just a wonderfully imperfect soul striving for that unattainable goal like the rest of us. Give me a dozen paragraphs and I'll tell you about my imperfections.

You are a rich person, Tattwo, with much to offer.  You know that.  Embrace your richness, and don't try to hide your imperfections.  If you have a lack of energy, you do.  Shut out what the world might want of you and be yourself. 

It is enough to be yourself.

Hope this helps,
BeerLover

Thanks BL.


I've made some poor choices over the last 6 mos. and I've been afraid of someone finding out about it. I've been having a lot of dreams about my mom lately. I mean a lot. I think that she just want me to be happy and coming to me in my dreams for comfort.


I don't feel like I'm doing good or being productive with my life. I guess it is that perfectionist in me. lol!!! I feel stuck right now in my life --career, etc. I've let a lot of things go. I guess I need to stop being hard on myself.

Tattwo--hi. I haven't been here in a while and I find your dream quite interesting.


Of course different people have different ways of looking at dreams--and the most important interpretation is the one the dreamwr makes.


 


However--with that in mind--what struck me was the communication from both your mother--who has passed--and your brother with whom you say you are not currently in contact with.


Some people think that we pick up energies from others when we sleep and those are expressed and understood in dreams.


So--as a thought--perhaps your brother has been thinking about you lately qnd regretting that you are estranged. (This happned between me a a sib so I can really identify here.)


Maybe he is thinking that he would like to talk with you--be nice to you (cleaning your room for you).


Might this be what your dream is for you--his reaching out to you with his energy?


(And your mother there to lend support for some sort of reconciliation for you two?)


Let me know what you think of this.


Sending good rhoughts your way.

No need to apologize. We all are busy and do things when we can.


Thanks for letting me know.

It's so nature to see the dreams, different people have different ways of looking at dreams--and the most important interpretation is the one the dreamwr makes.


May be your dream will comes true, but you have to wait for that.
