(North Carolina )
I am overwhelmed with my daughter, and I know that's part of the meaning of my dream, but there are details that confuse me:
My husband, my daughter (1year old) and myself are out of town, passing through the beach and stop. (we have a trip coming up) He shows me the hotel/waterpark we're staying at, and it's full of red, blue and yellow tunnels for waterslides, (mostly red and blue) much like plastic slides at playgrounds. The people we pass are all playing on the tunnels, and floating on red and blue floats that are round. We drive by them, on the right of them, and up a ramp they feels like a roller coaster. I tell him to stop so we can all walk on the beach. I close my eyes, because it looks like we're high in the sky and my stomach is dropping and nervous.
The dream fades in with me in a blue/black calf length dress, walking along what looks like the edge of a lake, not the beach. There's gravel and woods and people playing frisbee. It's bright pink. (note: I only wear dresses to weddings. I never wear them casually. Especially that long and housewife-like, which is how I feel) I forgot my phone, so my husband goes back to get it for me, stopping to show the older woman how to throw the frisbee correctly.
The dream fades back in and I'm holding my daughter, and he is leading us to a waterpark "ride." I'm following him, but anxious, because I can't swim. This is the strange part: Suddenly, the ride is what looks like a maze or funhouse. To start, you must climb this slope, that's not a ladder nor wall.. It almost looks like a sliding board. And everything is wooden. He climbs up easily, leaving me and my daughter, and I'm telling him to stop, that I can't hold onto her like this. He keeps going, and there a couple of inches of water flowing
over all the wood, coming down the slide. It flows over my hands and I tell him we'll be soaked. I look over and there are waterfalls of water pouring from the stairs and ledges above and people are soaked, coming down a slide on the left side of the maze. The only thing helping me grip is little raised bumps in the woods, in the shape of an asterisk. I somehow am at the top and walking along a dry ledge with banisters. I'm not afraid, because there are a line of people and there's not a lot of rushing water now. I tell my husband to follow the line of people and I try to stay close by him and he turns, stepping over a ledge to go down moving wooden stairs. Everything is old wood. Dull, unfinished, worn brown wood.. The stairs he went down are moving up an down like a funhouse, and is too late for me to follow. He's gone down and I'm alone. I yelled his name twice, and he never looks back. Then I'm on a ledge that's getting smaller, leaning back against the rail and my daughter isn't with me. The ledge is kind of triangular in shape, as if it was the top of a spiral staircase, but it's just the ledge and the wooden pole. I am scared and the ledge starts to spin. I guess it's moving me down, because you have to go down to get out of the maze, but my stomach is dropping and I hang onto the pole, closing my eyes, because it's making me dizzy. That's how I woke up.
I know I'm stressed, and I feel like my husband could help me more sometimes (though he works hard) but the wood and symbols and colors have to mean something, right? I have scary dreams at times where the room I'm in is all wooden top to bottom. Since that part is recurring, I'd like to understand more. Thank you.
