I love dreams. They sometimes fill me with joy or they make me wonder what the fuck is wrong with me to think of such crazy things. I have a lot of dreams where someone is trying to kill me and I think that stems from my ill-spent teenage years reading True Crime novels, watching horror or suspense thriller movies and too much Law & Order.
However, when I get the weird ones – I love looking up what they might mean.
The other night I dreamt that I got plastic surgery to make my eyes bigger. If you’re familiar with the Asian culture, many Asians get their eyelids reshaped to create a crease (Asian blepharoplasty). While it may sound totally wacky – I’ve known plenty of Asians that have gotten this done and it really does make a difference.
However, I’m a half breed so I already have a crease. I think this dream was sparked from watching the recent Oprah episode where Lisa Ling traveled to China to reveal how their culture has changed in terms of beauty regimens.
Anywho. I went in to get my eyes enlarged and when I woke up, my eyes were HUGE and my cheeks felt weird. I looked in a mirror and saw that I had a permanent look of sucking in my cheeks. Apparently the good surgeon though my face was “too round” and thought I could use a little reshaping so he sewed the insides of my cheeks.
And I cried. And freaked out. Not because I looked stupid but because I would never be able to open my mouth wide enough to put my fist in it. (Yes, I can do that — it is a great party trick that amazes and horrifies my friends.)
So I looked it up:
To dream that you or someone else is undergoing surgery, signifies the opening of the Self and/or the need for emotional healing. You need to “cut out” or eliminate something from your life. Alternatively, you are feeling the influence of some authority figure. A more literal interpretation of this dream may reflect your concerns about upcoming surgery or about your health.
Whoa – that’s a bit heavy, isn’t it? Or maybe not. I have been feeling stressed – maybe I do need to “cut out” something from my life. But wait…
To dream that you are having plastic surgery, suggests that you are rebuilding your self-esteem and trying to improve your self-image. The dream may also occur if you are considering plastic surgery or scheduled to go in for plastic surgery.
Wow – that’s a bit much too. Either I’m emotionally frazzled or I have low self esteem.
This game isn’t fun anymore.
Last night I had a dream that a married couple I know announced that they were pregnant. However, they are people that (1) party really hard and (2) should not have kids. In my dream I got really angry. I think this dream stemmed from the fact that there are at least 7 women that I know of at the moment who are pregnant. 7. And now I keep hearing the chatter of having babies.
I tried to look up pregnancy but the interpretations were all about if I dreamt that I was pregnant so I looked up Angry instead.
To dream that you are holding or expressing anger, symbolizes frustrations and disappointments in your Self. You tend to repress your negative emotions or project your anger onto others. You need to look within yourself.
Being angry in your dream may have been carried over from your waking life. Dreams can function as a safe outlet where you can express your strong and/or negative emotions. You have some suppressed anger and aggression that you have not consciously acknowledged.
Yeesh. Maybe there IS something to these interpretations.
Apparently I’m more upset and down about myself that I thought! I swear I’m feeling fine these days.
What crazy dreams have you had lately?
