Plane Crash/ Frozen Lake

Hi, I'd really appreciate your analysis of this dream. It was a borderline nightmare and extremely vivid. I don't currently have any real life stress I can think of that would produce this type of intense dream.

I was in a very beautiful all glass shopping center that resembled a very large home. It was night so it was dark and there were a lot of warm soft lights that reflected off the glass walls and marble flooring. Mostly earth tones. There were no soft materials around but it was very comforting.

I decided to go outside because I needed some crisp cool air. Once outside, I see my mom standing on the left of the extremely large patio. It is dusk now not night and there is a placid small lake in front of me with a flat very sturdy but flexible looking bridge going across the lake. Out of nowhere I hear this extremely loud noise, I look up and see a 747 within a few hundred feet of me in a noise dive straight into the lake on the right side of the bridge, with an identical plane flying straight, low, and away right above it. I barely get a chance to even realize what is happening before I get soaked by the enormous splash from the impact. I don’t remember the water feeling either warm or cold, just room temperature.

Both planes were white on the top and a dark red clay color on the bottom half. I was conscious of the specific airline being different, actually the opposite, of what it appeared to be. My mother who is still there informs me that the plane was hijacked and that we are in Germany (my family is part German). Oddly neither of us are panicked by the situation, a little shaken and maybe in shock but not panicking.

We go back inside, the loud noise continues but changes to that of water sloshing and steel breaking. It has turned to night again and after a few minutes I look outside and see that the entire lake, and surrounding area, have frozen over with the plane half submerged. And that was the end of the dream.

Normally I would interpret this as my subconscious screaming for my attention in some way. The dream itself was very unsettling, but in waking life I feel totally calm. I don't get this one.

Re: Plane Crash/ Frozen Lake

Evie,
Let's look at the airplanes as signifying your ability to solve problems, conquer hardships, and/or elevate yourself to a higher position of manage your emotions. Unconsciously you are driven by fundamental energies you grew up with, probably personality traits you share with your Mom {or it could be the opposite}. These are emotional issues that have come about in your life that have affected you and caused a lot of uncertainty {noise}. There was one issue followed by another that occurred without time to react in a normal mode. Consciously you have not let these issues bother you but unconsciously it is the opposite {an ability to adjust may have delayed conscious response}. There is not panic but it could cause an unnerving affect if you let it control your emotional life. Consciously you have attempted to push these issues out of your mind because if they are allowed to become conscious energies they could take control. The Germany part of the dream could also point to inherent traits and/or have associations of some kind to do with 'Germany' ancestry.

See if this fits in your recent life experiences. You may have to 'juggle' my analysis to make it fit but there does seem to be a pattern related to what I have provided. Your response may provide additional information to help understand the symbols.

Re: Plane Crash/ Frozen Lake

Hi Jerry,

I had to think about this since there really isn’t a recent event or experience I can point to. The only thing I can think of that I might be blocking out or suppressing is my need for the love and support of my family in life in general. Something I don’t have, at least from my perspective. I’ve told myself I don’t need them or their love and support which of course isn’t true. I have always felt there are people “missing” from my life, but that could just be self delusion/coping mechanism. I don't want to or can't handle it anymore so I buried it but consciously I think I've conquered it?

And Germans are notoriously coy and reserved emotionally in my experience.

Other than that, it could be something more abstract. As in, something I accept as true but is false or vice versa.

Re: Plane Crash/ Frozen Lake

Evie,
That could very well be the primary message of the dream although there may be another or other waking life experiences as well. All dreams have at least two meanings/applications with one addressing the deeper psyche issues {as with your family life} and another addressing recent conscious issues that had emotional energies.

As for your dream. It begins looking within yourself. This is how you cope but there are no 'soft' materials {from your conscious life} and you have had to make as life comfortable as you can despite the circumstances.

Then the dream focuses on the conscious life {going outside}. There is your Mom and the crashing plane which may suggest something is coming to or needs to come to a conclusion {I don't want to or can't handle it anymore so I buried it but consciously}. Unconsciously the 'noise' of not having the love and support from family remains. The two planes may represent the conscious and unconscious self. Unconsciously you have endured all you can and it is or will become even more a conscious issue as life goes on. The reserved emotions may be a family trait, one that was part of the problem with your family's inability to show love and support as well as one that could be apart of your personality you need to conquer. That could be the two planes as well, one being the family issue and the other your own personal issue.

The more I read the dream the more I can see where it fits with the issues you mentioned with love and support from family. Such unconscious issues never go away until they are confronted and resolved. They become unconscious motivators for personality and future actions. If these are deep seeded emotional issues it would be normal to have these type dreams since the psyche is attempting to help you resolve the conflicts. Paying attention to what the unconscious dream is trying to tell you will help in your conscious life.
