Dream about me being kidnapped

In the beginning of this dream, I was with my co-workers and we were in a dark room. There were two or three women co-workers, and they had laid out sheets on the floor and were lying down. There were also one or two kids which belonged to the women, and they had brought them to work, which is something they never do. There was a large bed beside them and they were lying on the ground instead, near the wall and window. I was sitting on the bed, when a young girl, a kid, came up from behind and hugged me. Then I found that it wasn't a young girl but one of my colleagues. He was the one hugging me. Then we lay down, some three or four of us on the bed, and one of these collegues, had unbuttoned his shirt and we were lying there talking. It was a carefree time. Then a former boss of ours came up. One of the colleagues whom I secretly don't like went and started talking with the former boss and he was a bit disrespectful to the boss. Then the boss came to me and I talked to him very respectfully. He then asked me to come with him, and we went out and he put his hand around my shoulder, and I found this particular boss to be good in real life. We walked about, outside in the streets, and he asked me what kind of girl I liked. I pretended not hearing what he was saying, and actually in the dream I could not hear what he was saying entirely. He was asking me about marriage, because I am unmarried in real life, and don't wish to marry because of the responsibilities and at the same time also want to marry and have a good time. I kept saying to him that I didn't plan to marry, and he kept trying to convince me. We had reached a house where we were denied entry as we walked to its door. Then we turned back and reached a truck, and it was a truck that transports milk, or maybe something else. We both climbed up the rear side, not on top of the truck, and were talking when the truck's owner came up. I immediately alighted, and told my former boss that they wanted to leave, but my boss was very heavy headed at this point in the dream and just wouldn't come down. The truck guys, who were three or four in number, wanted to leave, but my boss wouldn't come and said that you can do anything you want, I will come down only when I want to. Then one of the truck guys, who was the leader of this group said something like 'is that so?' and then got into the truck and the others also climbed in, and they started the truck and I also climbed up the rear side because they were going to leave and I didn't want to leave my boss behind.

The truck started moving and my boss took out his phone to dial to some police officer whom he knew, who would take care of the truck guys, but he just couldn't dial. Then the truck travelled a long distance, and we were at the rear but were in front, the truck was moving backwards now, so that we could see where we were going. We finally descended some small slopes and turned to the right and reached a crowded bazar. There the truck came to a halt, and my boss was scared now. We were at the rear exit of a hotel, and there a man was applying fire to another man's leg, only it was a hook and not a leg. They stopped when our truck came up. Then we all got down from the truck, and the leader of the truck guys said something and what he meant was that they should take my former boss and cut his leg and cook it and serve it to the customers. I was really scared and I apologized and said to the leader that I had nothing to do with all this, and that I had got down earlier in the beginning, and the leader said that I should step aside, he was not going to do anything to me. So I stepped aside, and then later I was sort of domesticated and had to work in the fields and I was actually laying eggs in the field, I was human but had sort of become a hen. Then I decided that this was enough, and I rebelled, and tried to escape with my boss, whose leg didn't seem to have been cut off because he was running with me, and we were on mountainous area and we reached the end where there was a ocean, we were still on the mountain top, and we stopped there because we couldn't go any forward.

The dream ends here, and I woke up but decided to fall asleep again, and then the dream continued in a different way, with my having become a superhero. The truck guys came back, and I said to them that have you heard of Superman, and Spiderman, and Batman, I am all of these. I had become a hero and was fighting them. This dream ends here.

Muddld,
Because this is such a long dream it will be at least until tomorrow before I will be able to provide an interpretation.

Do you know EdwardC who has posted a couple of dreams in the past several days. Both of you are from India and about the same age.

Re: Dream about me being kidnapped

Muddld,
A very difficult dream to understand because most of the symbols are generic and without real specifics. Plus there is a lot duplication of the actions instead of just one action describing a pattern. But I think i have sorted it all out.

What I perceive the dream to be about involves feminine aspects, probably relationship issues that were developed early in life. There are unconscious influences and motivations that are affecting your ability or desire to be a relationship. You state in your comments that you do not want to marry because of the responsibilities. But on the other hand you do because of the 'fun' you would have. I think this is about the dream is addressing but with the issue of wanting to/not wanting to marry having to do with childhood influences. I'm getting a sense that it involves how you were raised and possibly to do excessive mothering. Look at the relationship with your parents, especially your mother and determine if there are experiences that would now affect your feelings about relationships. I believe the reason you do not marry has more to do with those childhood influences.

The beginning of the dream sets out what the problem may be {what I provided above}. The rest of the dream seems to be addressing issues surrounding an inability to get past the childhood influences and have a normal relationship. My impression of the truck is an overloaded emotional self that is confused {people on and off the truck}. Your higher self {boss/leader} wants you to have a relationship {the normal inclination in life} but you were so 'domesticated' in childhood you are unable to. Domestication may indicate you are so accustomed to a type of environment in a relationship {developed during childhood} you find it hard if not impossible to find a woman who could fill the roll. You've become a hen, or hen pecked. You want to rebel against these unconscious motivations but are unable to do because they are very strong influences involved as well as you becoming used to your present environment of being single. What has been 'kidnapped' is your ability to have a normal relationship with a woman.

Does this fit? Exactly what it is from childhood that motivates you is unclear but the possibility of excessive mothering seems real. Let me know your thoughts and perhaps more clarity can be gained from your response.

Re: Dream about me being kidnapped

I have been mothered too much, that's a fact. I don't know about the childhood influences, I'll have to think of that. Which part in the dream makes you think there are childhood influences? The beginning, where I am hugged by a little girl? I didn't pay much attention to that. Majority of the dream was about the kidnapping, and I kept thinking of that only.

Thanks for the interpretation!

Re: Dream about me being kidnapped

Muddld,
It is the whole first part of the dream when put together provided clues to the mothering aspect. The images are symbolic and I had to take each one to get a reference and then put them together. This is where experience in working with dreams is important. By themselves the images mean little but when placed together a pattern begins to appear. The dream begins with a focus on unnamed/unknown women which suggests anima aspects. The young girl would represent a 'developing' feminine aspect or influence. The kids also suggest a childhood influence. The first part of a dream {see How Dreams Are Structured in my page A Simple Guide to Dreams}. All these images are parts of yourself. You are the boss, the women {feminine aspects}, the children {childhood experienecs & influences, etc.}.

As for the childhood influences that would have to begin in childhood would it not? Those early years of life are primarily what determine who you become as an adult. You didn't start to begin to be mothered in 20s, it began as a child. That is basic psychology. What was kidnapped was a normal self, balanced. If you are mothered too much then that creates an unbalanced psyche. Dreams attempt to inform the dreamer of such conflicts so there can be a remedy and the life brought back into balance. Because of this mothering affect there is an imbalance that causes an emotional conflict. Usually that translates into some type of 'complex' to do with feminine aspects or relationships. Is it part of the reason you are not in a relationships is finding someone who will fit with your expectations? Expectations that the mothering in childhood has produced? You may have to give this some serious thought to realize whether indeed it is true. If so then the dream is trying to inform you there is this problem so you can resolve the issues.
