Turning friends into Zombies, while Im normal!

Ok strange dream this morning. What does it mean? In it I was working for Blockbuster video (?), and was with my neighbour Katie. She worked at a branch a few towns away than the one I worked at. I picked my son and her son (theyre friends) up from school and we travelled over to see her at her work. When I got there and we were showed upstairs to the offices she was in, I could she she was grey looking and not herself. I then saw her go over to another staff member and bite them on the neck. I didnt seem to worry about our safety, but instinctively knew that I was the one who had 'turned her', even though I looked normal myself. I did however, feel sad that she was now in this state and felt bad that I had done it.

I later passed others queuing to go into the building and noticed another zombie in the queue, which I looked at and knew I had also been the creator of that.

What does this mean?? Anyone have a clue? Many thanks Michelle

Re: Turning friends into Zombies, while Im normal!

Michelle,
The beginning of your dream could suggest something gone bankrupt {Blockbuster video}. But that would require an in-depth examination of your perception of Blockbuster video {the store chain} especially the unconscious perceptions. But it could very well apply to the dream. Let's see what the rest of the dream offers up.

Your neighbor Katie as a real entity in some respect has relevance to the dream, that is the actual waking relationship you have with her having some associations to what the dream is trying to address. But I sense Katie is more a part of you, a representation of similar/shared qualities or traits the two of you share. In some important aspects she is you. The fact you both have sons who are friends not only speaks to a reality in your waking life but also to the shared qualities with Katie that go to deeper depths of your unconscious. Dreams do not often speak to the obvious {the actual waking relationship with Katie as a neighbor and the two sons being friends}. Those images become symbolic and address some aspect of your {the dreamer} psyche so to convey an emotional conflict or strong influence.

In the dream Katie worked at a branch a few 'towns' away. That branch would be a branch within you, again shared aspects you have with her. A town would be symbolic of your whole self {a citizen would be only a part, a town the whole}. Blockbuster is a place where she works. Work is often symbolic an anxiety about a current experience in your life {conscious and or unconscious}. This aspect of the dream suggest an anxiety to do with Katie, a person you relate to because she possesses qualities you share. The anxiety would be in relationship to those shared qualities but she would be you.

When you got there, or go there where Katie works, she is grey looking and not herself. This statement would be pointing to you, you and Katie being the same person because of the shared qualities/experiences/traits. It is you who loos grey and not yourself. Something is out of whack, not normal.

The other staff member would also be a part of you {unless you actually saw Katie in real life bite someone on the neck}. This is indicative of a vampire, biting someone on the neck to draw blood from them. Blood, although not mentioned is suggested, would be symbolic of energy, emotional energy that is being taken from someone else. Safety is not an issue so it must have something to do with instincts. You are taking energy from one aspect in your life to satisfy or rectify something in your life that has made you look grayish, not yourself. Grey is the color of decline. Something about you has declined. It probably has to do with shared qualities/traits/experiences with Katie. There may have been recent waking life experiences to do wit Katie where you felt bad but the jest of this statement would be about you feeling bad about yourself {Katie being a part of you}.

We are beginning to go in circles with this explanation so lets go to the end of the dream and see what it has to say.

Queuing by definition is to get in line or 'fall in line', get in line with what is subscribed. But by doing that you could become a 'zombie', not your real self, having to subscribe to a work ethic that takes you away from your true self and makes you have to rely on others for your energy. Could that be what is happening to you? You have become a 'Katie' and have to live up to those expectations. The pressure is as much from within as it is from the outer world. Could you be putting too much perssure on yousrelf to live up to 'Katie's world when deep down you had rather be something a little different or in a position that doesn't require so much emotional energy to be in? The Blockbuster reference would be to the deep inner self that is becoming bankrupt because of the emotional stresses of being a 'Stepford wife'?
Does this fit?

Re: Turning friends into Zombies, while Im normal!

Wow thanks for that. Well where to start.. I was working in roles whereby I was autonomous and quite well paid for. I was becoming increasingly dissatisfied with this work, due to lone home working and also feeling no satisfaction from it. Last role I did in this was April, when I packed it in. In truth I was no good at that last role as I really didnt want to do it, but needs must. Since I have decided I am not going back to this line of work and have thought long and hard about a career change. In the meanwhile, I was offered a 6 month contract before the summer (just to tide me over was good money), however this did not come to fruition, despite being offered a start. Last friday the man rang me back saying they were setting more on and that I should be expected to start poss Oct time. This has had me perplexed, as I do not know if I can trust him as to whether I will be let down again. This and looking at other roles to do, as money is now becoming quite tight. (Luckily I was offered another interview yesterday pm). Anyway, both Katie and myself have both had relationships end in the summer and both single parents. Katie works in hairdressing and had said she would ask her friend who works in admin if she could offer her some extra work. I had said please ask for me also, as I used to work in admin. I felt in a way that katie in the dream, was in the admin office of the place I had been offered the original job..

I was not happy about end of relationship, but have tried to put that to back of my mind to focus on the current situation.
