Eagle Flies into House and Can't Fly Out
An Eagle Flew into My House
A bald eagle crashed through a skylight in my house and flew into the kitchen where we were. It was huge. I ushered the cats into a bedroom to hide them from the eagle in case it was hungry, which it didn't seem to be; I felt like it had just eaten. The eagle watched me intently, it’s eyes were human-like. When it tried to leave, it couldn't flap its wings and couldn't leave through the broken skylight because its wings were too large.
Disappointed and scared.
Main Life Issues:
My cats are ill, my job is awful, money is tight, worried all the time.
It’s a story about a beautiful creature that roams proud and free but can no longer do so.
Eagle: A creature that is used to freedom and lots of space.
Skylight in house: As light from above, symbol of insight.
Hide cats in bedroom: Trying to keep loved ones safe; being cautious, perhaps too much so in this scenario.
Eagel watched me intently: A connection; eagle as symbol of your own freedom that feels hemmed in.
Could not flap its wings: Not having the strength to get to where it needs to be; metaphor for dreamer not able to free self from job that feels confining.
Eagle’s wings were too large: Wings are what enables one to fly and become free; in this case, wings are a symbol of dreamer’s hopes, suggesting dreamer has big dreams but may need to take small steps instead of big ones to move forward.
What the dream Means:
The dream mirrors how life feels at present, especially in terms of work. The eagle is a symbol of your soaring spirit and wish to be free, yet you are stuck in a job you dislike. The eagle's dilemma to get away revolves around its large wings, hinting that instead of trying to make huge changes all at once to free yourself into anotherjob, take small steps toward a career change. Small steps would let you move forward more slowly but eventually free yourself.
Bottom Line: Take heart. Keep the faith that all changes in time, especially if you take one step at a time toward new goals.
