Pain, Disaster and Death
Self Inflicted Torture, Attacks and Death
My friend was sitting on a seat, emotionless, then picked up a hammer and used the sharp end to repeatedly stab her forehead.
Later, I was in a house with my brother and dad; we wanted to go outside; the only way to leave was through the microwave but there were people in charge who wouldn't let us. We snuck out through it and came into another room with a view of an island with lots of trees. Suddenly my grandparents were there and furniture was flying toward a window which was on fire. My dad, brother and I ran and hid behind the bench; granddad died and many crows flew through the smashed window. My nana stood there as they attacked her and she died, too.
Later I was by a pool with people; we realized a girl had a rope attached to her leg with bombs on it and a crazy man ran out throwing bombs which exploded.
Almost emotionless, woke up feeling strange.
Main Life Issues:
A teenager; stress, worry, feel unmotivated.
The first scene is about self-inflicted torture, the next about disasters that keep happening and the third shows someone harming others.
Hammer: A tool that can be used positively or negatively.
Stabbing Self: Pain that is self created; a hint that the dreamer that may be the source of his / her own pain.
Microwave oven: What heats things up; in this dream, a metaphor of strong emotions, a need to feel and get heated up.
Island: A place that can be hard to reach, isolated; in this dream, a symbol of possibly being too much on one's own or not reaching out to others.
A bomb: What explodes, what builds up energy and then releases it quickly; in this dream, may relate to dreamer holding in feelings too much and fears they will erupt and get out of control.
Death: Transition, change.
Death of grandparents: Loss of what connects you to your past; in this case, a metaphor for feeling unmotivated.
Forced death, killing: Being forced into change by people or circumstances.
What it Means:
You say that you felt almost emotionless, yet the dream shows many highly emotional scenes and extreme, intense symbols such as bombs and fire, etc.
Death is generally a metaphor of great change and as a teenager, your life may keep inviting ou to undergo a lot of change, which the dream mirrors. All parts describe destruction, pain and death, the first part as self destruction, the last as pain and destruction that targets others.
The dream likely describes your emotional landscape. It depicts intense feelings that sometimes turn against yourself, and at other times is directed against others. Your emotions, perhaps at times unexpressed, create pain, and can erupt as if beyond your control.
Bottom Line: Dreams exaggerate to make a point. As a teenager, your hormones may be raging and can have the effect of an out of control roller coaster. Intense feelings can be a good thing, something that motivies you to act, adding passion to your interests. Find activities that give your strong feelings a constructive outlet, like sports or creative hobbies. As you encounter change in daily life, you may at times experience the world as a place of pain and chaos. That is part of growing up. However, in time, it all settles down. Your job is to keep your feelings constructive.
