Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
You Must Evacuate and Leave Home
Teen Has to Get Out of the House
My dream had two parts, one represented the past and the other, the present. In the first dream, I woke up at home with the family and had a baby sister, though I don't have one in real life. We were attacked by a maid we had when we were young; she was mean, but we loved her. The maid ordered a huge black dog to eat our house, bit by bit, and it messes up everything inside. The dog almost ate the baby but we got her out just in time, and evacuated before it was too late.
In the second dream, the same thing happens. This time I knew and try to get everyone out, but they take their time. This time, a previous maid who was really nice, was forced by the mean maid to destroy our house. She had no choice, but didn't want to. She did it slowly to gave us time to prepare and get out. I took the baby and my childhood stuffed animal that I still keep near me, and took my homework, and we left. I was really scared.
Main Life Issues:
Stress as a teenager.
It’s a story of a need to move along, first forced by someone mean, then by someone you love.
At home with the family: In a safe place; where the dreamer starts out.
Must evacuate and leave: A need to let go and move along.
A maid and a nanny: People who help keep you on track. In this dream, the nanny is a metaphor for adults such as parents and teachers who force teenagers out of their comfort zones.
Nasty adults like mean maid and a good maid forced to hurt: Metaphor shows how teenager sees that life sometimes makes those they love act nasty, like forcing rules and activities, on them.
Helping others escape: Becoming a heroine shows dreamer's willingness to grow up and help others, as a major step into maturity.
Stuffed animals: Relics of one's childhood; in this dream, a metaphor of a teenager clinging to the past (one's immature self) as one is forced to grow up (leave past things behind).
What it Means:
As a teenager, growing up is a huge transition. At times it may feel as if you are being forced to leave behind everything that you love in order to take on new responsibilities and more mature feelings toward those around you. Becoming a heroine who helps others get to safety shows your willingness to become mature and to grow up, even though it feels drastic and painful.
The nannies represent the adult and life forces around you that are pushing you to grow up such as teachers, parents, and making career choices. The dream portrays how life forces you to grow up, ready or not. Whether you want to do so or not, you have to move along.
Bottom Line: It can be sad to see life change. However, growing up brings new joys, but at the price of taking on new responsibilities and challenges such as going to college and creating a career. In time, you will discover that it is all good.
