Witch Girl

Hello! Ok I will admit this dream is rather long, so please bear with me. I will share my attempted interpretation afterwards.I've actually been having many vivid dreams lately....nightmares....ick.

Alright so in this dream I was back in school. It was the night before a huge project was due. My brother had a huge project due as well and we were working on our projects together. He finished his before mine, and I ended up pulling an all-nighter. The next day I went to school and had Spanish first. I couldn't find any chair to sit in, because every time I sat down someone approached me saying I had stolen their chair. Finally I just stole a chair and told the girl to deal with it. Then this boy named Kyle West (I don't know where these names came from, though the people looked like people I knew in real life sort of) started being really mean to me. All his friends were being mean to me as well. At one point he even stole my project that I had worked so hard on. I was wrestling him for it, terrified it would rip. I told on him to the teacher who made him give it back to me. I then slapped him in the face. He asked the teacher if he could hit me back, and she said yes so he slapped me as well. Later I got fed up and asked him what his problem was. He told me he had had a crush on this girl named Theresa and was going to ask her to prom, and I had ruined that by telling her that a different guy wanted to go with her and she had gone with that guy instead. I felt really bad for having done that as I had had no idea Kyle liked her. He was crying as he told the story and I started crying too, apologizing. Then we made up and didn't fight anymore, which confused the teacher and Kyle's friends, who missed our conversation.

After that I went to my second period class, government, and the dream became a continuation of a different dream I had a while back. Basically after the AP test my teacher had become an almost different person. In real life she is like a serious but kindly grandma. But in the previous dream and this one she had become very chill and tried to act hip and young, wearing skinny jeans and converse and listening to dubstep. We also didn't have class in the classroom anymore, but in different "secret" rooms. So I walked into our secret room and my teacher was lounging on the floor with other students listening to music and talking. There was also this cute little Asian girl who looked way too young for highschool who had been in the other dream as well. She loved me and followed me around everywhere. I liked her but she could be annoying at times. While having nothing to do in class I decided we should plan a class trip at night to the school's aquarium, which was big and beautiful, with many interesting sea creatures in it. We could go snorkel there later. I started getting kids who were willing to go, some weren't (one refused to go because she was pregnant with her second child...what?). It was fine until I asked the little Asian girl. She told me she didn't want to go because she "Didn't want to be naked." I was fairly confused. I told her she didn't have to swim naked, she could wear a swimsuit. But she just kept repeating "I don't want to be naked" over and over again, getting more and more worked up. Finally she became so angry that her face turned VERY red and her eyes looked like they were going to pop out of her skull, it was really creepy and sort of terrifying. Then a piece of her long black hair sort of cracked and fell off. After that I left her alone and she calmed down. I kept the weird, cracked off hard piece of her hair though.

Later a group of little kids was at the school, visiting for some kind of camp they had. They were playing with the cracked piece of hair and to my surprise it came to life and started carrying the kid around like Dr. Octopus tentacles. It was robotic. I was deeply curious and researched it and found out the little girl was an evil witch. That night I led the town in an angry mob against her. We got her robot wig off first which I shot at with a bazooka until it was finally destroyed. Without her wig she was powerless and was running around naked and bald. (I don't know why she became naked after her wig was off) I had learned in my research that lye gave witches strength. In this dream lye was a kind of wildflower apparently. I realized she was looking for some and I tried to tell people to stop her but they were all clumsy and couldn't get a hold on her. I was trying to grab her but she had grabbed some lye off the ground and inhaled its scent. She became very powerful then and turned on me. She pinned me to the ground, laughing sadistically and I knew she was going to kill me. So I dug at her throat with my toenail in a desperate attempt to save myself and actually did damage, she even gasped. I kept clawing at her throat like that until I woke up,clawing my blanket with my toenail! This dream left me feeling very disturbed and unnerved. Definitely a nightmare.

Ok my next post I will give my interpretation, woop. There are somethings I get and some I don't really know, I'm hoping you can fill in any gaps!

Re: Witch Girl

Ok so here are my thoughts. The project part was easy, that was just anxiety. I always get dreams like that when I'm at a stressful point in life, and last week I was stressing out a lot over everything I had to get done. The class issue with that boy Kyle I don't really understand....maybe my dream trying to tell me to reason/work through my issues? I don't know :/ The second part I get, I think. I believe this dream largely had to do with relationship issues I was having. Lately I've been unhappy in that area because I'm just not comfortable with the sexual aspect of things, having decided I really just wasn't ready for that sort of stuff yet. Not that my boyfriend ever pressures me, it's more like I pressure myself to go along with what I think he wants. So keeping that in mind, my teacher acting out of character represents how I feel as if I'm acting far out of character when trying to be sexual. It's just not me at all. I know water in dreams a lot of times signifies emotions, and this time I think the emotions held a more sexual aspect. While the aquarium was beautiful and good, not everyone in the class, (not every aspect of myself) was willing to take a swim in it. Especially not the little girl side of me, which very plainly stated to me that she didn't want to be naked.

The part with the mechanical hair and the girl being a witch was more tricky for me to think about....when I think of hair I think of insecurity, my hair being something I am fairly insecure about. This girl used her hair to protect her and to fight. It could be a message that not only my more childish side is holding me back from the sexual world, but my insecurity is playing a part as well. The hair (my insecurity) was very difficult to bring down with weapons, and weapons didn't work on the little girl at all. (Trying to aggressively force myself to change and engage in sexual things is ineffective and destructive) The fact that the little girl was evil could be me demonizing my inner child, feeling as if I am being held back by it. However my inner child ultimately overpowers me in the end, showing me that it is really pointless to fight it. In fact the girl wasn't even aggressive towards me until I decided to lead the town against her, in other words I am picking unnecessary and dangerous battles with myself by trying to force myself to do things I don't feel comfortable with doing. Anyhow that's what I got out of it! Feel free to add though! :D

Re: Witch Girl

Anna,
I can see where you are correct in your assessment about the stress from the class assignment. But there are two assignments the dream is addressing. One is yours and the other is your brother's. When there is this type language it is metaphorical and not literal. One would issues to do with feminine aspects and the other masculine. The feminine could be your stress {feminine as emotions} from the assignment and the other coping with the deeper aspects to do with responsibilities {masculine}. On one hand the Kyle would be the mean guy in real life but also would represent masculine aspects that are 'being mean' to you. All of his friends would represent a disruption of other aspects of yourself because of the 'masculine responsibilities'. Your whole life is being disrupted on two levels. Your are wrestling with both of them {remember the issues of moving often and having to adjust so many times}. The different guy you are going to the prom {celebrating your freedom from responsibilities}. What you described in your interpretation will fit but it is only one of two applications the dream is attempting to convey.

The next paragraph is probably addressing the deeper issues more than just pressures from school. The insecurities you have about your hair would also represent the deeper thinking process {hair is symbolic of your attitudes}. Different teacher different aspect of your emotional self {feminine}. The Asian girl may represent something 'foreign' about yourself, things you are still not aware of or have given enough attention to {from the various issues in your life we have discussed}. 'She' would be a positive aspect. {there may be outside associations to Asian girls that influenced the dream}.

Look at all the people in the dream who are not named or specifically identified as aspects of yourself, and then apply those actions to yourself. The 'she' that gets angry and upset is you. What is it you are/were angry with? Nakedness could addressing you without clothes but symbolically it is stripping the 'clothes' from your unconscious to reveal what is underneath.

The childish part you described seems very plausible. You are no longer the child who must count on others/parents for security. On the other hand those experiences/influences from your childhood has left you with insecurities. The angry mob you are leading against these emotional issues are all about you, they are all are a part of you. When you leave school you will leave those issues related to school behind. But the deeper issues remain. That is what the mob is attacking. Wigs coverup your real hair, your real attitudes and feelings. Emotionally you may be turning on yourself because those unresolved issues have become so powerful {especially since you have been working with your dreams which is your deep unconscious}. 'She' is going to 'kill' you unless you put an 'end' to the unconscious influences {killing is putting an end to something}. The throat is often symbolic of expressing what those unconscious are that you need to acknowledge and resolve.

You are probably right on in your interpretation involving the stresses you described. But remember all dreams have at least two applications/meanings. The deeper issues often unconsciously control your waking attitudes and actions. Whatever your attitude is toward any given thing it was derived from earlier experiences/influences in life. You may not like a certain color because as a child your mother did not like that color. Children who have parents who smoke usually smoke also as adults. These are unconscious influences that exert themselves without you knowing it. While you are working on those issues you consciously know about, the underlying stimuli must also be resolved. Sexual attitudes just don't develop for no reason. And they don't go away until much later in life if at all. Think about your life growing up and try to fit these dreams with those issues you experienced as a child. You will be surprised what you come up with.

Re: Witch Girl

Thanks again for your help, Jerry! I really don't think any negative views of sexual things came from my childhood, or at least I can't think of anything that would cause that. I am not sure what other issues the little girl would represent that are related to the deeper thinking process. At that time I was more concerned with those relationship issues and the stressful week ahead of me than anything else. I agree that the girl would be some sort of teacher, as usually my subconscious is trying to teach me something from my dreams, but in this case aside from what I mentioned I'm not exactly sure what she would be trying to teach me!
