Dream Interpretation: Dead End
Visitor Post: I can't remember the first part of my dream, but the last part was very vivid.
I was at a small charity event and two of my uncles (that I haven't had contact with for many, many years due to family conflict) were at the gathering as well. We were making plans to drive back home and there was a question about which of my uncles I would be travelling with.
While I was waiting for them, I sat on a swing in a park-like setting. I felt happy, swinging like a child.
My uncles and I went back to find the car, but when we got to the parking lot, we started running. We went down some narrow lanes past beautiful scenery of clear water. We kept running, found two or three small dead fishes, and my one uncle stopped to pour salt over them. I didn't know why and thought it was strange - even in the dream.
We then went down a very narrow lane that was supposed to lead us where we were meant to be. When we opened the door, it opened into a small movie theater, which was the wrong place and a dead end. We retreated and they went back through the door but the door swung shut and I couldn't get through.
My uncles and an old friend (whom I also haven't seen in years) were on the other side, encouraging me to get through. There was a very small square opening high up on the door. I didn't think I'd make it through, but with their encouragement and help, I climbed up against the door and squeezed my head through, then my shoulders, and then slowly the rest of my body.
Once through, I felt relieved and happy. Then I woke up.'
