I want to share a dream that my wife had that which she told me about that was noteworthy enough to earn it’s own episode spot.
A about a week ago my wife woke up and told that in a dream she was standing outside playing around on her iPhone reading her Facebook feed. While surfing Facebook on her phone she decided to look at the pictures of one of the girls that she performs fashion photography for. While going through the pictures she said she stumbled upon one where her friend, Lisa, was blowing bubbles in the picture. At the time she saw the image it was a typical still image. Then all of a sudden she said the bubbles started moving in the picture inside her phone. While she thought the dream was astonishingly imaginative, she was particularly impressed with how real the fluid and residue from the bubble felt when it hit her on the face. In the dream she said she actually had to wipe it off her face with her hand.
Later when she awoke and told me about the dream she asked me what it meant. I told her that not all dreams necessarily are a revelation or have significant meaning. My wife is a photographer and a fashion model and spends much of her time editing pictures in Photoshop and using her imagination to ad things to pictures that didn’t exist before.
This is an active use of imagination and I explained to her that I think her dream was simply an imaginative use of subconscious contents from her normal hobbies and endeavors from the day before.
It’s important to note that not all dreams are worth interpreting. Some are simply a reproduction of thought and experience from our normal thoughts and habitual lifestyles.
