Fight at a funeral

In my dream I was driving in a car with my wife and her family. We stopped at a nice building, I think a hotel and my wife's sister came out of the hotel she looked like she'd been crying recently, and the family said something about my wife being able to stay there if she wanted. A guy came out to greet my wife and he kissed her and I thought oh that's just her second husband, even though it felt uncomfortable I didn't say anything. I think the man was possibly her sisters husband, but I realized she would probably stay with him that night.

Next I was sitting in a room full of people and there was a ton of pizza boxes. A guy in the front of the room was asking us to guess how many pizzas they had. The pizza was given in honor of the deceased, his four favorite types of pizza.I looked around and noticed I was at a funeral. I couldn't see the man that died, but I glanced at the casket and perceived he was older perhaps 50 to 60.

I was trying to count how many'pizzas they had, it turned out their was 300 pizzas total of four different varieties. I ate a slice noting it was very high quality.

The man up front said the man who died would want us to understand how the pizzas were made and they would now demonstrate it.

Suddenly A guy I don't know at all in his mid thirties know sat next to me and did something to initiate a fight and I began defending myself, disrupting the entire funeral. I knocked him to the ground and thought the fight was over then he got up and attacked me again, but missed and hit my wife to the floor, I felt really mad and in danger so i picked up a folding metal chair and began going after him smashing him with the chair several times over and over. I felt bad about it.

I noticed as I went to attack the man, after he hit my wife, that she was looking very embarrassed or annoyed that I had made a scene at a funeral. I felt a little guilty about it but also knew it was not me that had started the fight I was only defending myself.

Then I woke up.

Re: Fight at a funeral

One more dream after a returning to sleep.

I was going to a game show at the mall with my wife. I had to pick a card and try to do what was written in the card at some point during the show, and the card I drew said I was supposed to talk like like I just had a baby and get people to guess our say the word beach birth


My wife was with me and her sister. Every time I talked she was telling me I was Too loud. A guy walked up we had run into earlier, my wife's friend, and my wife sat on his lap and they began to hold hands. Her sister said not to worry because they were just friends. I felt worried but I trust my wife so I let them do it, and the guy scored over so my wife was no longer sitting on his lap. The guy was dressed in street clothes.

I started trying to do what the card said and the game show host came over and said it wasn't my turn yet.

My wife and the guy got up to go to the bathroom. I started talking to my wife's sister and trying to cuddle but everyone kept telling my to be quiet. No matter how soft I spoke they said I was talking too loud and her sister said I was giving her a headache. My wife came back with the guy after a bit and he was changed into more upper class preppy clothes and a new haircut and it was like he was engaged to my wife cause they had a diamond ring.

it was now my turn four the game, the game show host came over and started talking to me and asking me questions about the baby and I replied in ways that would get the people around me to guess the phrase "beach birth".


I know a lot of the symbolism is similar to old dreams I have shared but still had a few different themes and a few new ideas to explore thanks.

Dustin,
I should have an interpretation of your dreams tomorrow. Trying to catch up on a long list of posted dreams.

Re: Fight at a funeral

Dustin,
I'll need more time to analyze the two dreams you have posted. I do have a question about the dreams that could be important. What is your relationship with your wife's sister? Is there something about her to identify with? In both dreams your wife is with her sister which may suggest there is something about the sister that fits with your psyche {it could be symbolic and not about the general relationship at all}. In the first dream your wife' sister is 'coming out' of a hotel which may point to some aspect about her that brings something 'out of you' emotionally. If you can provide info on this it could help in better understanding the dreams.

Re: Fight at a funeral

Well the first dream and second dreams were different sisters. The first dream was my wifes sister who has struggled with severe emotional issues her whole life. I have tried to help her in the past.

My wifes other sister is a friend and I have helped her in the past with things too. She is married and lives in another state.

Re: Fight at a funeral

Dustin,
My sense is the dream is addressing issues in your life to do with wife but may also go deeper emotions related to how you feel about your mother {the sisters would be aspects of your mother you cast onto your wife}. You possess a contradictory attitude toward your wife because of these inner emotional conflicts. Your need to release emotions over these issues may be taken out on your wife. there may be issues to do with your father also. The guy in his mid 30s who hits your wife may actually be your father hitting your mother and you may be displaying similar tendencies {or anger} toward your wife.

At first I had trouble with the wife images and her sisters. But going back to your Baby Dream and your response about your wife where you said there are 'highs and lows' to the relationship, I sense the sisters represent symbolic qualities of need you identify with. And you spoke of the broken home you came from and the two divorces {another application of the second wife in this dream}. The bad behavior you experience in the relationship along with your own weaknesses makes me believe you are pretty much living your childhood over again except instead of giving up on the marriage as your parents did you are willing to go to extreme degrees to keep the marriage going.

You also stated in your response to the Baby Dream you belong to a religious group where there is a hierarchy that cannot be violated. And because you do have objections to many of what is taught my sense is your interest is associated with your own 'hierarchy of thought' you must stay with your marriage despite the problems and that can not be violated no matter what. This comes from an unconscious attitude related to what I described above about your parents and their 'violating' their vows of marriage. This religious group you belong to is feeding both your need of the hierarchy of thought as well as your sense/objections where you disagree with to some of what is taught. The better self {unconscious} is coming through in your dream {dreams reveal your true self, opposite the bias of the ego} on one hand and these dreams are trying to help you understand the energies that are responsible for the attitudes you have {from childhood and related to parents and marriage}. From what I get from you state about the religious group I would think it is not a positive thing in your life. Not only is feeding the 'hierarchy' aspect it is also not letting you voice your emotions, something that is vital if there is to be a resolution to the deep psychological issues. If you can't consciously voice your true self there is little hope your unconscious self {your true self} will be able to voice what is deep within your psyche that needs to be brought Out {as you are dreams are attempting to do}.

Let me know your thoughts to my interpretation. The funeral in your dream may be symbolic of burying the old self and old attitudes. These dreams could be an important break through for you, if indeed you heed what they have to say and seek ways to resolve the issues I have presented.

Re: Fight at a funeral

It seems like this could be right on. My marriage and life in general have felt very difficult lately. Nothing seems to be going right for me in any area. Physically , mentally, emotionally and spiritually I feel as if I am falling apart.

I had another dream the night before reading this explanation. In my last dream I was just in my house talking to my mom. I told her how sad I was and I felt such despair like I wanted to die, I just felt like collapsing and sobbing because I literally feel so stuck in every aspect of my life for the last 3-5 years. I saw my dead dad and he told me how nice it felt to know when you are going to die, like a relief to leave this trouble I am facing. I don't know how to turn it around.

My church is a source of comfort and simultaneous pain for me. Comfort because I do feel a lot of peace and truth and support, but pain because I feel confused about things that seem out of sync with my value system and what I understand about being Christian.

I want to know all the answers, but I dont trust any answer I receive no matter how blatant it appears. I feel there is no way to know most truths for sure in this life.

I feel a lot of anger at God which seems to sway between blaming him for letting me have these problems followed by a desperateness of wanting him to help me to make sense of them and give me the answers I seek, helping me through this, yet so depressed and contentious that I cannot bring myself to live at the needed spiritual level with prayer and humility and seeking and meditation needed to achieve that desire and receive my answers.
