Nightmare

Hiya I had this dream last night and finding it hard to shake it off and can't stop thinking about it.

I am laid in bed sleeping when I hear my son screaming "mummy!" Over and over again. So get up and go to him and when I walk into his room he is stood screaming and pointing at something on top of the wardrobe. When I look there is a man there dressed in a full white bodysuit with only his eyes showing. I try screaming for my son to run but nothing is coming out. Then he jumps of the wardrobe onto me and I'm trying to fight him off. That was when I woke up.

At first I couldn't move and didn't dare incase he was in the room with me. Then my baby girl started to cry and I had to force myself to get up and go to her. Any ideas what this could mean?

Kayleigh,
Let me give your dream a deeper analysis later today or in the morning {pressed for time and a long day of obligations ahead of me}. But at first look the dream may be addressing identity issues {wardrobe}. Clothes are a symbol of your personal identity and a wardrobe is a storage place for clothes. Since it involves your son {pointing to the wardrobe} there may be issues about being a mother or recent experiences about motherhood. Men in a woman's dream usually represent masculine aspects. The white body suite and the eyes may have something to do with seeing yourself in certain light.

I'll give the dream a better look. A simple dream but perhaps with deeper meaning.

Re: Nightmare

Kayleigh,
Upon a second inspection of your dream I still get the impression the dream is addressing attitudes you possess to do with being a mother. I sense the dream is pointing to issues of how you see yourself as a mother {top of wardrobe-top is the thinking self, a wardrobe is a cabinet where you store clothes which is the perception/clothing you have of yourself}. The man would be your animus qualities {your masculine aspects}. His eyes are the how you see things. The white body suit would represent 'purity' of the image you have of yourself {inexperienced}. There are times you have to fight these impressions of yourself.

The stresses of motherhood may be taking a toll on you which cause you to question your abilities to be a proper mother. I want to ask if you are a single mother since that type situation would require you to be both mother and father {masculine aspects in the dream} but it could fit even if you are married. Waking up and being afraid to move would suggest an unconscious attitude that could happen would most likely will not {being less a mother than you may feel you are}. When you daughter cried you had to force yourself into reality. You did what comes 'natural' for a mother.

Perhaps the dream is telling you to follow your natural instincts and not be afraid of being less than what you or others think of yourself. It could be the dream was stimulated by a reference by someone else who questioned your mothering abilities.
