SHE NEEDS TO LIFT THE VEIL
I dreamed I was getting married in a restaurant with a small group of people. I was wearing a wedding gown and veil. The groom-to-be kissed me above the veil and then lifted the veil and kissed me on my face. We were about to say our vows when someone came in and said war had broken out and it was not safe to finish the ceremony. We ran to the window and there were tanks in the streets, people getting shot and dead, bloody people lying on the streets. What does this mean?

The two kisses represent duality: One kiss is visible — public — and the other is private, hidden beneath the veil of unconscious strivings. The lifting of the veil is a significant symbol; it means a revelation or disclosure is at hand. A wish to get married may be conflicted at this time. This may explain why the ceremony never takes place. The dead people seen through the window represent a termination or end of an old lifestyle. There are fears that a part of you would die, if married. In this view, the marriage is looked upon as an invasion or infringement of personal space.
SHE NEEDS TO LET GO
I dreamed I was in a theme park on a ride that resembled a Ferris wheel and a swing. It never went back and forth, only round and round. When I came down, my feet were a couple feet off the ground. To my side was a woman with outstretched arms taking everything in. She had a peaceful expression. When I saw this, it helped me feel better, so I did this on the ride and my nervousness turned into pure exhilaration! Please decode this dream.

There is no doubt about it — no going back and forth — a decision was made to be free-spirited, to let go of fears and inhibitions and embrace your insecurities. There is the need to accept the vicissitudes of life, its ups and downs, and swing free above the fray. Outstretched arms reveal this wish to be receptive to new experiences. In this view, you wish to take in all that life offers.
