Dream weavers out there?

Last night it was all about monkeys. I dreamed that monkeys were in my house messing everything up.

Eating my Trix.

Going through boxes in my basement.

One of them could talk and he kept repeating words to some commercial that I hated when it was popular.

"Plop, plop. Fizz, fizz. Oh what a relief it is!"

I seriously wanted to strangle him but couldn't catch him.

They were riding on Socks' back, breaking eggs on my floors.

It was exhausting.

Any takers on this one?

You feel like 'things' in your life are not in your control (represented by the monkeys; recent posts about Liv growing up and your health are examples). You would like to control things (trying to catch the monkeys), really badly. You feel taunted/haunted by the things you can't control (the plop, plop, fizz, fizz song). They are eating your Trix (you feel those things are yours and you should have control over them) and going through your basement (you would rather keep things under wraps but you are being forced to confront them). You are not feeling like the alpha female (monkeys riding on Socks' back and your inablility to catch them.)

All I know is, it's a good thing they weren't flinging poop.

I detest the word "plop." I think you're feeling that your life is out of control at the moment with your family away, and when they return, the monkeys will leave. Hopefully sooner. Or maybe the monkeys refer to your guest writers who are having their way with your blog, even though you invited them. But what do YOU think?

I'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole.

Wow! What an interesting dream!

How do you normally feel about monkeys?

Did they have on little hats, by the way? Organ grinder type?

Maybe it has something to do with the snarled (I'm reaching here...) state of your health and mind. In the practice of meditation, there's a state called 'monkey mind' - it's when you are trying to clear your mind of all thoughts and one little thing after another comes wiggling in. Isn't that a great description?

So maybe the monkeys represent your state of monkey mind!

At least none of them were flinging their poo, as monkeys are sometimes known to do....

I'm no dream weaver, Maria. I just think that sometimes we have those sorts of dreams so that we can wake up and realise that life must be okay, because at least we didn't have to deal with that.

Huh. No clue on the monekys. It must've been one of those nights though. My sister and I were flying across a field, away from a small tornado and I was holding out a car steering wheel for us both to hold onto, we so didn't get seperated. We were in long , white cotton and lace night gowns, the old fashioned kind (the kind I'd never be caught dead in). Then I literally fell out of the dream and back onto my bed, kept rubbing THAT SPOT on my sore head all day. We are not close, prefer to be seperated. So strange. The flying was fun, but I'd have preferred your monkeys.

I'm looking forward to the other responses you get on this though...lol

Animals in our dreams portray themselves as our animal within and this is not simply a psychological belief. It is built into our body as we have three interwoven brains. The monkeys are your ‘inner animals’. The talkative one was the dominant one and it was mischievously repeating something that annoyed you. The association with food was a reference to your feelings about your body shape and the eggs being smashed was representing your lost fertility/age/maturity. Your tiredness was related to your feelings of anger and despair at feeling not being able to change the way you are.

While it often appears that we dream a dream all night long, we actually only dream for a brief time, however, the very tenor of our dreams can mentally tire us out. How do you feel this morning?

lolz...it was only a dream or you would not have any eggs left for breakfast :)

Monkeys going through boxes in your basement sounds like you fear that some deep secrets might be exposed, maybe even subconscious stuff which you suspect is there but aren't sure what it is (and don't want to find out.)

The doctor is in. 5 cents, please.

Not such a good dream! I was thinking along the lines of "monkey mind" but someone has already said that.

No clue, but some of the thoughts presented sound reasonable enough.

I wonder why I woke to the tune of the Keebler Cookie song dancing in my head.
