Just a Fish
I Am Just A Fish
I was riding a train with my best friend. The train was taking us around an amusement park with a huge pond in the middle that was full of fish. At one point I was on the train and suddenly, the next minute I was in the water, somehow I had fallen off. I swam over to a guy who was fishing and tried to ask him to help me get out of the water – I could not get a good grip to pull myself out. He just pushed me back into the water as if I was one of the fish. I tried to yell for help but no one could hear me. That was when I woke up.
Main Life Issues:
I am a full-time student and a full-time mother with insomnia.
Someone who is moving fast finds themselves stranded with no help.
Riding on a train: Metaphor for the journey of life.
Best friend: Can be a symbol of your soul or best self. Also, check out People in Dreams; her qualities may flag traits your can use to cope in the current situation.
Water, a pond: Water is often a symbol of emotions, and swimming in a pond suggests deep feelings or getting lost in emotions.
Fish, many fish: A fish can be a spiritual reference per references to fish in the Bible or nurturing as a reference to healthy food. In this dream, fish may be a metaphor for feeling lost in the crowd, as in not feeling recognized or appreciated.
Pushed back: Not getting what one needs.
No one hears me: A play on words for not having a voice, not feeling heard in life, feeling powerless and insignificant.
What the dream Means:
The dream suggests that at times you feel as if you are in over your head and have taken on too much. By wanting to pull yourself out of the water, you are reaching for a secure place within yourself to counter the anxious and intense feelings. Look to tools like exercise, meditation, spiritual practices, nature, or a counselor, which can help one unplug. Yet notice that no matter how intense and demanding your life is, you were swimming, not drowning. So even though your life is not comfortable at the moment, you are managing.
Bottom Line: The end of a dream often contains the advice and shows where the issue is heading. The ending shows you have to continue to struggle and rely on yourself. No one is coming to rescue you.
