SHE WORRIES OVER A DARK SHADOW
In reality, I have no surgeries planned, but I just lost my health insurance and have not purchased anything yet. In my dream, I was scheduled for surgery to remove something in my body. Something had appeared as a small dark shadow on the X-ray. I realized I couldn’t go ahead with the surgery because I didn’t have health insurance to pay for the procedure. The nurse, reading the doctor’s report, said the procedure would require doing it more than once. I told the nurse that the doctor hadn’t told me that. What does this mean?

The small dark shadow on the X-ray is the shadow of doubt and uncertainty. The anxieties of having no health insurance have triggered the dream, for this is what was removed from your life. The dream attempts to work through monetary worries but also concern over not being told the big picture. In this view, the X-ray is symbolic of the wish for transparency. In a larger sense, the nurse is self-referential. As such, there is recognition that steps must be taken, procedures enacted in your life.
SHE WANTS TO BRING DOWN THE HOUSE
In reality, I am going through a difficult time in my life: No job, a pile of bills, a mortgage, the bank calling — the whole nine yards. I went to sleep in tears and dreamed I was at a house close to mine, and the house next door had just collapsed into the earth. People were screaming for help. It all happened so fast. The earth gobbled up the house and there was nothing in the spot where it went down. Please decode this dream.

At this difficult time in your life, it is not surprising that the dream reveals a sense of Impending doom. Under the circumstances, this is a rational fear. The neighboring house that collapses is self-referential. In this view, you are displacing feelings of insolvency and instability. But the house that disappears into the earth without a trace reveals the wish to make it all go away. One hopes it will, debt and all.
