two recurring dreams

I had these two dreams last night, but I have had both of these dreams repeatedly for years.

In the first dream, I didn't graduate from high school so I had to go back to high school. (In real life, I received a warning from my high school that I wouldn't graduate if I had more absences since I already had too many so this was a big fear for me back then). I was running late getting ready for school and worried about my mom yelling at me that I was late for school. My brother is sometimes and sometimes not these dreams. In this dream he needed to use the car maybe to go to school as well...I don't remember. I wanted to use the car because I didn't want to walk to school or people to see me on the road walking to school. I remember having other dreams like this that I wanted to use my mom's car to drive to school, but I wasn't sure if I could). It was like if I was late to school, I wouldn't know my schedule of classes.I was thinking if I was late for school, I'd just go to the counseling office and see which classes I was registered for or register for classes then. I really didn't want to be there so I didn't care if I was late like my mom cared.

In other going back to high school dreams, there's an assignment I didn't do or unexpectedly test I didn't study for. But it's such a nightmare for me to go back to high school because I hated it so much in real life.

---

In the second dream, I was in a spacious, private bathroom that was at the end of a house. In the past few dreams, it was in a family house but not my actual family's house. I seem to wander looking for an available bathroom or get away from family members or family members might already be in bathrooms I pass. I'm not sure if I have this dream because it was hectic when I used to share one bathroom with my siblings when I was a child so I always wished for my own, private bathroom. To continue, the bathroom I was in turned into a large public bathroom without privacy stalls and then it turned into a gym that a group of guys entered in a door from the other side of the gym. I think they were either playing sports or later playing music in a band. I was waiting for them to leave so I could go to the bathroom, but they weren't leaving anytime soon. I was now outside this gym which was supposed to be a bathroom. Then, when I thought they were leaving and they knew I was going to enter through the door, they blasted music or I heard music blasting through the door so i still couldn't go in.

Anonymous,
I'll try to work on your dream later today but it may be tomorrow before I can get to it. I in the process of creating pages on 'Interpret Dreams Using A Dream Dictionary' and need to spend time with it today. These pages will allow people to interpret their own dreams using a Jungian based dream dictionary {actually two}. I am close to finishing it.

Re: two recurring dreams

Anonymous,
Here is my amplification of your first dream. I think it is pretty much self explanatory. The issues with not receiving proper nurturing as a child seems to be the real issue as well as issues with your mother. The school in your dreams is alluding to education in early life related to family and close environment. Likely you recent have 'reflected' on your years in high school, an experience you hated. The same applies to your childhood, not having the proper nurturing from parents. This is why you have so many dreams about highs school. Your 'advanced' ;earning is lacking because of improper nurturing {education} as a child {from parents}.

If you would please let me know how well my analysis fits. As I stated in my first response {I do apologize for being a day late} I am working on pages on how to interpret dreams using a dream dictionary {my dictionaries based on Jungian concepts} and I did just that with this dream. I found this dream fairly easy to analyze using the dictionaries. Your response will verify how well using the dream dictionaries are in analyzing dreams. I'll work on the other dream later today {I am once again working on my new pages, you can see it at Interpreting Dreams Using A Dream Dictionary}.

Looking at the second dream I see the word bathroom is repeated often. Look at the word bathroom in my dream dictionary. You may be able to see what fits with your life. Here is the page Dream Dictionary B

Re: two recurring dreams

Oh, I really thought the first dream was related to my past experience of high school. However, I didn't receive proper nurturing as a child. What is advanced learning related to in real life?
