A dream about a valley with lightning bolts-bells-balls-sweets and candy

I dreamed I was in the middle of a valley and I saw some big hills with red and dark brown rocks, more like a mountains really but there were no trees. I am talking with a few friends and suddenly we heard a strange sound like big giant bells were falling down. Everybody started running and screaming... but I stood frozen and then the bells/balls (I couldn't tell to be honest) hit a red car, inside the car was a man or somebody anyway, the balls had destroyed them. It was very fast and when the ball hit something else it became like a lightning ball with electricity that was blue and sparkling. All the balls were passing near me but not even one touched me. A boy appeared and asked me how it was possible that I had escaped unharmed. I didn't know, but then he said “perhaps it is what you hold.” In my hands I had a candy can with mint pastilles, (I often eat them) but on the front of the can was written a Latin sentence. I don’t remember the words, now but I understood that it was my protection so I said to him if you need help you must let me know. 

A valley is another symbol for being in the middle as it happens, a valley runs through hills and mountains, it is a symbol for how you can get through difficult times, the hills and mountains symbolise tough obstacles to get over or tough times to get through. The ‘valley’ symbolises the route that you take through stubborn problems. It shows you that there is a way forward for you which will bring you out the other side of your troubles. The hills and mountains can be symbolic for how big you feel that your troubles are, the symbolism isn't necessarily about how big that actually are . Dreams often tell you how you are feeling and not how things are. Your thoughts and feelings are put into symbols instead of put into words. 

The strange balls or bells or mixture of both symbolize unexpected bolts out of the blue, a bolt from the blue is a saying used to explain something that happens unexpectedly. These unexpected happenings (sorry I can’t say what these unexpected happenings are) will cause some amount of mayhem around you, other people around you will probably be hit or affected too, it could be something sudden like job loss or anything that happens and stuns the people it affects, it could equally be positive unexpected changes as well. Balls and bells are not really a symbol of negativity, they are more a symbol of 'sit up and take note'.

You however seem to have protection from these sudden changes, you will come out of it all unscathed. Protected by your sweetness perhaps. You seem to be needed in the role that you are playing. You also offer your services to help the other people who are affected by the sudden changes and this is because you are a caring and kind person who always thinks of others as well as yourself.
Sweets and candy often represents the sweet things in your life or the pleasurable bits that you get to experience in between all the troubled bits. Mint is used to freshen up something that has become stale. This could be your talents, your life, love or relationships. 

Good Luck and please get back to me to let me know what happens.

Being followed by a strange man in my dream

I am with a girlfriend and we are walking and talking, but behind us there is a couple, a woman and a man (I don’t know them in real life) but for some reason I didn't like the man. But we continued to go on and then I saw some steps and we started to go up them, but suddenly I turned and said to my friend “we should not go to the other side.” My friend was in front of me and she was leading and I was following her. I heard a strange voice from beside me and when I turned back I saw the man who was behind us earlier and he was ugly. I was then alone and he grabbed my hair and he managed to take some of my hair.

I started to scream and then he said “I’m going to eat this hair because I want to unite with you, I want to become as one.” I said to him “never going to happen” and I grabbed him and punched him. I saw he had a mark on his right leg (not from birth) but more like some operation or surgery. 

The steps you need to take!
This dream seems to be reminding you to use your natural instincts regards situations or people who cannot be trusted, in this case it is probably a man who is interested in having a relationship with you, but your instincts will tell you something isn't quite right about him.

The steps are suggesting that you will get the opportunity to go up in the world, maybe at work or in your career, but this opportunity will come at a cost, you know the situation where in order to move up the career ladder you have to be nice to the male boss and then they want more from you than you are prepared to give.

Your hair is a symbol of power and perhaps this type of person is trying to take your power away from you. You don’t seem to give it away freely anyway and you fight to stay in control of the situation so it should all work out aright for you. Be strong and stand your ground, move up the work ladder with hard work, it might be a slower process but you will get there in the end. 

When someone is ugly in a dream it is a way to show you that they are not a very nice person on the inside. It can also mean that they have low self esteem and don't think they are worthy. 

The marks on is leg suggest he has been hurt in the past and perhaps this hurt is what has caused him to become who he is today. Basically he is damaged and needs to heal or mend before he can have a good meaningful relationship with a woman, he needs to know that possessing or owning a woman is not going to create a lasting loving relationship.

A Flying Obstacle Dream

In my dream I knew that I was going somewhere, but not sure where. I stepped off this high building and flew (just like Superman). Then for some unknown reason I flew underwater to a cave, only to find that my way was blocked by what looked like the gable end of a building which had fallen off. I tried to get through a number of the small holes, but was unable to. Then as I waited the Gable end of the building seemed to slowly disappear.
I then saw a number of people walking towards me in a Group and they also slowly disappeared. I proceeded forwards and then found myself on a street naked) and the pavement was covered in broken glass, millions of small nails, and other rubbish.
I found it extremely difficult to take any meaningful steps.
Then my Alarm went off and that was the end of the dream.

Flying is often used in dreams to express freedom for the soul, or to remind us that our soul is free, it happens when we need to remember the pure freedom that we have on another level of existence and it happens for many other reasons which I won’t go into here as those reasons are not applicable in this particular case.

Your soul is free to learn whatever it wants, it can learn about everything there is to know about people, the unknown, other people’s ideas and beliefs, everything and anything that life can teach you in fact. Experience is learning!
You flying or delving into the water is a way for you to recognize the act of delving in and finding out all you can about the unknown, because of the water you will be emotionally connected to the things you find out about or learn about. Going down is like delving into the depths of the unknown.

The cave is also used as a symbol for going backwards in time or back to the source of information to find what you are looking for. The cave which is hidden is a symbol of what is hidden from you or what goes on underneath the surface. We often have to go backwards in order to make progress because to really understand something it needs going over twice. That’s why we go back and forth, because we didn't understand the first time.

Your way being blocked is self-explanatory of the obstacles that get in the way of your learning, buildings could be used as an earthly symbol or it is earthly things that stand in the way of your progression or learning. In contrast to this buildings are concrete and perhaps the concrete barriers that stand in your way are beginning to crumble and break down, these barriers seem to be in your way or blocking your way but in your dream they begin to disappear so at least you know that any barriers will eventually dissolve and go away on their own.

The group symbol is usually about people of like mind, a group who think alike for example, perhaps this group will disperse or break up and this might leave you feeling vulnerable (naked) this means that the way ahead for you spiritually will seem paved with dangerous obstacles, the glass nails etc. The spiritual road is also paved with lots of rubbish, let’s face it we have to learn to negotiate the rubbish, the nails and glass on any spiritual journey, when you are going it alone it is really scary. But sometimes a journey has to be done alone, you are never really alone anyway, your spirit guides are always with you.  
You will make meaningful steps, you are learning independence and to trust your own judgement and that is more meaningful than becoming reliant on a group to tell you the answers all the time.

A Leopard ran out of the cemetery?

I had a nightmare, I was passing by the cemetery and a Leopard came out, it ran after me and kissed me on my mouth, I would like to know the meaning!

Something is rising up again and coming to bit you on the bum! Feelings maybe? 

The Cemetery is a representation of a situation or perhaps a relationship that in your mind is over, or dead and buried, it is in your past. 

The Leopard probably symbolizes a women, cats are normally used in dreams to represent a woman character, the feline nature etc. I wonder if a woman from the past is going to show up again in your life. Or perhaps a new relationship seems to follow the same pattern as a previous relationship? Because the Leopard was amorous to you in the dream scenario it seems to me that a women is offering you a relationship or friendship, perhaps you worry she has alternative motives? 

A kiss can symbolize love and affection as well as them giving you a seal of approval. 
Wild cats are however slightly feared and unpredictable in nature, they say a leopard never changes its spots so I feel that you will approach any new relationship with caution. Perhaps you have past relationships that have made you wary or uncomfortable with the unpredictability that relationships tend to bring to your life.

Dreaming during pregnancy

When you are pregnant your dreams can become vivid and often quite extreme, it is not uncommon for them to cause anxiety, especially if they deliver negative scenes or nightmarish scenarios. I have spoken to quite a few pregnant women whose dreams have bothered them at a time when they need to be calm and relaxed. Often their nightmares are about their unborn child or about the delivery. I always start out by telling them to relax because dreams are very rarely predictive in nature and nearly always over the top with the message they do bring. Your dreams predominantly want you to work through your own problems, hang ups and fears so that you are released from them and free to make progress in other areas. 

Pregnancy dream symbols can be translated in the same way as usual but consider if the dream is referring to your new role as mum, for example dreaming of pregnancy or giving birth when you are not pregnant symbolizes new beginnings, starting a new project that needs nurture and good care to bring it through too success. This type of translation will be highly appropriate for a pregnant woman as well, but rather than a project it will be the new baby that requires your devoted love, care, time and energy.

There are many reasons that your dreams can get out of control at this time:
You certainly remember your dreams easier because you are waking up more often in the night. (usually because you have a baby doing star jumps on your bladder, making you need the loo)

It is at this time in your life that you are overly sensitive and brimming with hormones, making you feel vulnerable and not in control of your life at all. You are worrying about all number of things and not necessarily talking about your fears with the people around you. This means that you will often face your fears through your dreams. 

By facing nightmares you are learning to deal with the extra stress and worries that new babies often bring, in a way you are toughening up. Being a mum requires all of your inner strength and wisdom therefore it is common that your dreams or nightmares are helping to toughen you up and deal with your fears rationally. Many first time mums comment about their irrational thinking when the baby is here, they comment that they didn't know they would worry so much over silly things. No one really tells them what its like to worry over a child. Your dreams do try to prepare you a little bit. 

Like young children, babies are closely connected to the spirit world and this is often what heightens your own psychic abilities during pregnancy. When your own psychic abilities are intensified like this you will experience more unusual phenomenon, you will be aware of more than you usually are and this can be confusing, your dreams are helping you toughen up to anything you ‘pick up’. Not being affected by bad dreams is a way of building up your own psychic protection.

Your fears of giving birth will be explored in your dreams but that doesn't mean that there will be problems during delivery it just means that you should work through your fears now so that you can just get on with the job when the time arrives. Consider that your subconscious is pushing forward your fears so that you bring them out into the open and talk about them. When you have talked about a fear it will diminish. Dreaming that you can’t deliver your baby is a way for you to see that you are not getting out your feelings and thoughts, you are keeping it all inside yourself. There are lots of psychological anxieties to sort through before your baby comes along and you will be fully prepared if your dreams have been busy and thought provoking during pregnancy. 

The quest for spiritual knowledge

In my dream I was at work (yet again) and I was being trained for a new position but I was absolute rubbish. My desk was a mess and I couldn't make any decisions. I tried tiding up my desk.
A colleague was looking at me but not intervening. I looked at him pleading for help and he came to me but I knew I was not coping well. That’s all I remember.

This dream is pretty self-explanatory really, it’s about your insecurities in the work place, feeling inadequate for the tasks you are set, or being out of your depth with a new role. Everyone starts off like this and the first six months in any new role are always the hardest, when you start getting used to it you will look back a wonder what you was getting in a state about. The mess in your dream describes the mess or muddle you get in, and you trying to straighten it up is a way for you to understand the effort you put into trying to undo the mess you find yourself in. You want some help from your colleagues or from the people around you but they don’t seem to offer much help either.

I'm always tidying up mess in a dream and it drives me crazy, no matter how much I tidy up there is always more to do, it seems like there is no end to the sorting out I have to do with my family, friends and work in real life too, so whenever I have these tidying dreams I know I am going to be sorting out everyone else’s problems or clearing up after a mess they have created. Like most problems that come along things straighten out in the end.
Incidentally consider if the work place is symbolic for the spiritual work that you do, because sometimes this type of message relates to spiritual work and is not always about your career. 

Another dream I remember, I was with my boyfriend talking about names for dogs. I told him Bobby and Toby sounded the same to me (I don’t really like these names for a dog). He told me Toby had been trained to bring water to people.

Dogs are often used to represent someone who is a protector, someone who looks after you and takes care of you, they are often working quietly in the background, working away without recognition. That’s why in dream symbolism dogs are used to represent the spiritual guide or guard and soul protector.  

You seem preoccupied with the name of such a person, I wonder if you have been asking for the name of your own spiritual guide? Toby has been trained to bring people water, well how interesting is that? Perhaps your guide is bringing you information to quench your thirst for spiritual knowledge?

Incidentally the name Toby comes from the 'Hebrew' meaning God is Good! Google it yourself and see what you come up with for the names, this is a good way to translate the meaning and message to this dream. I do feel a spiritual connection with this dream but I think you can find the message yourself.

The last dream I remember, I was in a convenience store. There were two books and they looked interesting to me. One of them was like a psychology magazine and I wanted to buy it. It came with a newspaper. I looked for the newspaper and found out it was for free. The other one was about tarot, I opened it and read a little bit. It looked interesting to me and the price was reduced, so I bought it too.

Yes this confirms it, these dreams are relating to your quest for spiritual knowledge and learning, books are amazing at passing on knowledge and your dream is prodding to you to read all you can about all the different subjects. I love books as you may be aware, I love them so much I wrote one myself. Everyone should write a book, everyone has a story or two to tell.  I’m not saying you have to believe everything you read but look at it as research and education. Never ever stop learning!

I think many people ask for readings because they want their spiritual questions answered, really they should read lots and find the answers for themselves, research if you like. I always research everything, every topic you can imagine. You tube, google etc. its the same as having a library at your fingertips. And yes it is all free. Knowledge is free. So learn all you can about everything and if you make discoveries along the way and change the way you think, then wonderful. But don’t ever stop searching for more because you will change your mind with the more you learn.

Then share what you have learned for other people to learn from. 
Enlightenment through experience and learning!

Dreaming about photographs-capturing memories

Photographs and cameras in dream symbolism help you to put things into perspective, they capture important moments in time, they help you take more notice of the finer details and they help you to understand what is going on around you from another perspective. 

They can symbolize someone who is snappy or someone who looks at the here and now and who does not understand that the past can create the person you are right now. Photographs are also used to represent the past because they link with memories, or help you to remember important lessons from the past.

Please can you translate my short dreams? The first one I remember I was having my photo taken and I was struggling to smile for the camera. But I smiled finally and I thought my smile looked fine. Also I remember my eyes being narrowed, as if I was not trusting something. 

I think this first dream is about trying to put on a brave face, or pretending to be happy so that other people don't feel sad as well. You are trying to capture a smile but it seems that it is just for other people's benefit. You are probably not really trusting someone or trusting a situation for what it seems to be, maybe you are pretending to be happy but are not completely because you don't trust another person? 

Last night I dreamed I was on a beach but it was a bit cold because it wasn't summer. However the sea looked beautiful. Then there was a fountain with water:

The beach is a place where we usually go when it is hot and sunny, but you say its cold, the environment  you are in is supposed to be warm but alas it isn't offering you the warmth you desire, the beach is also a place that signify's change, the sea washes in and out and changes the set up that you have at the moment, perhaps these changes will bring back the warmth that you desire.I don't know if this has to do with a relationship, your job or just your daily life. 
The fountain could be symbolic for a fountain of wealth or knowledge, or both. Fountains can also represent the notion of the pouring out of emotion, the same old emotions going over and over the same ground. You will have to wait and see which is more appropriate.

Continued...My friend wanted to get in the fountain and for me to take a picture of her. I wanted a picture as well but couldn't manage to take it, I confused the camera with my sunglasses... next to the fountain there was another one:

Taking a picture or a photograph is a way of capturing a specific time, perhaps a happy time which will stay in your memories, your friends are important to you and you do appreciate them.  But you are unable to get a clear picture because you have a clouded view, perhaps you have issues with trust even with your friends. 
The fountains will possibly link with the out pouring of emotions, do you share your inner feelings with your friend or do you hold back? 

Continued...I wanted to get into the water (might be that I really miss good weather)

You  wish to cleanse your problems away and rejuvenate yourself. 

Perhaps you actually miss your friends back home as well and this is why you haven't completely bonded with friends in this country, you are trying to make new memories to treasure here but you don't seem to be able to because you miss the warmth and love from back home. 

Continued...On the same night I had my friends visiting me at home, so I went to the kitchen looking for some snacks for us. I had peanuts and cake, but can’t remember what else. I was preparing the table for us to enjoy our time together.

You really are trying to be welcoming to your friends and you provide a wonderful listening ear for them to tell you all their problems but you don't seem to receive the same back. Perhaps because you are not opening up completely they are not getting to see the real you, or the inner you. 

Peanuts can symbolize what we store away for future use, this might link with trying to make new memories for the future, peanuts also symbolize getting nothing in return, in this country we say "I earned peanuts" and this means that you earned hardly anything for your troubles! 

Cake symbolizes all the ingredients that you mix together to make something nice for other people, it also has a saying of "You cant have your cake and eat" Which means you can't have everything all at once.

Where do our dreams come from?

I would like you to translate my recurring dream but I have to say that I do not believe that dreams are sent to us from the spirit world, or from any external place. I am more comfortable with the idea that our own subconscious creates stories and images which our waking mind can then sort through, perhaps to help us order our thoughts or work through things that are bothering us or playing on our mind. Before I send you my dream can I ask how you would translate my dream, would you translate my dream with my own belief system in mind or would you still use your own method of translation which includes saying that the spirit world help to create my dreams? 

This is an interesting question which deserves a respectful and honest answer, but please remember that the answer I give will only be from my own experience and from the experience of the many people who I have spoken and communicated with about dreams, spanning the last twenty years. These shared experiences by no means make this information steadfast and undeniable fact, but can be considered as research which seems to suggest a collective ‘idea’ about the creation and source of our personal dreams. Your own belief system is equally valid and I have written about the source of our dreams on many occasions, which incidentally incorporates your own idea.

Firstly and as the foundations for my own findings I would uphold that everyone’s personal ideas and beliefs are equally weighted and equally valid, but I had to find a middle ground so that I could use what I had learned to help other people find their own middle ground or like you say find an answer that they are comfortable with. I would never tell someone what they should adopt as truth because I do not know the complete and undeniable truth. What I did settle with was that all possibilities have as much chance of being true so why not agree that perhaps our dreams are provided through a combination of sources. Further to this why not consider that some of our dreams are created totally by our own subconscious and some dreams are provided from an external source, like our spirit guides, angels, the cosmos or the shared consciousness or even God.

There are many different types of dreams so why can’t there be many different authors of those dreams. I call my own idea about where our dreams come from “The Combination Theory”. It covers an array of ideas all with equal validity and it can be used to describe a dream created entirely by the subconscious as well as one created directly by an external source. I can also use it to describe a dream that is created from a mixture of sources.
So, rather than pick sides or say which idea offers more proof I tend to say that dreams are created from a combination of sources. Most people I have spoken with like this theory, more often than not it was already their own theory. Therefore my research into the question of where our dreams come from has settled on “The Combination Theory”.

If you would like me to translate your dream using the combination theory then by all means send it to me and I will do so. If however the combination theory doesn't sit comfortably with your own ideas or belief system then perhaps you could do some research into finding a dream translator who can translate your dream in the fashion that you prefer.  
A Psychologists approach might appeal to you, I know many people who have used this approach to help them sort through problems or order their thoughts as you yourself mention in your email, especially where recurring dreams are prevalent. I would always recommend that you use a reputable or qualified person to help you do this. If you are strong minded then I doubt you will take on any ideas that you don’t agree with anyway and this is just as you should be.

I will say that there are dreams on my blog where a dream was predominantly self-created or even completely self-created by someone’s own subconscious, perhaps with the purpose of helping them deal with or think about their own issues. Having said this most of the dreams that I have translated seem to show signs of being created from a combination of sources.

Lastly, please consider that if you do not understand a symbol in your dream then I would say that your subconscious didn't create that symbol. When you automatically understand what a symbol means or what it is trying to convey to you, then you can assume that your own subconscious mind could have created the dream all on it's own. But, if you do not know what a symbol means and you have to look else where for an answer or an idea then maybe it's worth considering that your own subconscious wouldn't provide you with information that you have no chance of understanding or translating, what would be the point? Furthermore what would be the point of dreams if we cannot fathom a reason for their creation. If they are totally created by our own subconscious and are simply regurgitating information from the day or from the mind or are just a projection from our subconscious surly they will not have any validity and will therefore not need translating.

The different sections of my life-The puzzle dream

The different sections of my life
what a puzzle!

I found myself walking along a dark road late at night, thumbing a lift, a car stopped and the rear door opened, I get in to find 4 rows of seats. On the back seat were two people, one man and a dwarf woman, they were having sex.
In the next row was a dark haired woman of about 50.
In the next row was a woman of about 40 who was laughing as if she had just come out of the funny farm.
In the next row was a dark haired man of about 50 with the most unusual expression on his face. (Bland and expressionless)

The driver asked me where I was heading to and I said Bedford. (I have no idea why)
I sat next to the woman in the second row. (Dark haired woman of about 50)
About an hour later the driver stopped and said to me, the weather is bad and it would be very late when we arrive in Bedford, but I can stay at their place just up the road until the morning. I agreed though I don’t know why.

In the house I found myself in a room with the two women, they were sitting either side of a table. I looked away and then looked back at them, both of them had aged about 40 years. I looked away again and then looked back to find the older woman had returned back to her normal age but the other younger woman was not there. I looked behind me to see her standing facing a door laughing as if she had a severe mental condition and banging her head on the door. I looked back to the table and the older woman had gone, then I looked back to the door and the younger woman had gone.

The door where she was banging her head had turned into a sort of carpet hung over the doorway. I went through the doorway and found myself in a large room with French windows on the other side. I went through the French windows and found that it was snowing. Then I met my son who was some 10 years younger and we had great fun kicking about in the snow.
Then the dream was over, I have no idea as to what this may mean or why I would have any need to travel to Bedford, as I know no one there at all.

Because the road in your dream is dark and long you realize that you might not necessarily be able to complete this particular journey all by yourself, you will need people to help direct you or help to carry you through this rather unusual stage of your learning. Thumbing a lift is a way for you to acknowledge that you won't be able to go it alone. (This could symbolize guidance from earthly sources, spiritual guidance or a partner to share the ride with) You are asking fro help to move forward. 

The help that is offered to you may seem inappropriate or the wrong kind of help that you need or expected to receive. The learning process that you are going through could take you into uncharted territories, learning new things that you don't really understand, this could affect you personally and at times will overlap with your personal life. Perhaps you do not like to mix business with pleasure, but this new learning curve will involve all of the different sections of your life. The four rows of seats in the vehicle help to back up this idea. You prefer your love life, work life, friends and spiritual learning in separate compartments but for progress to be made you will have to integrate all of these different sections. 

The characters you mention might all stand to help you recognize the different sections of your life or the different phases of growth that your life and your learning have gone through. It would seem that one particular section namely your love life has been stunted in recent times. Perhaps it was put on hold while you developed other parts of your life or your personality. These dream characters could also represent the different people who have created the present 'you'. The dark haired women of about 50 might symbolize a women from your past, or even all the women from your past. 

The people in your dream who are acting crazy will either represent the crazy aspects of your life or the fact that you have managed to hold it all together even though at times you could have quite easily lost the plot. Maybe the things that you have learned on your spiritual journey and also from your past relationships would have been enough to send a lesser man crazy. The bland and expressionless man in your dream could possibly represent the way in which you have had to stand back and detach yourself from the things that you have learned so that you are not affected by them. This is an old trick that helps people to deal with and be able to conquer fear. Detachment is recognized by psychologists as a tool that we use when things get too much to deal with. 
The driver may symbolize the 'drive within' or your 'motivation', it is the force that carries you forward when you don't even know where you are going exactly. The driver can also symbolize another person who pushes you forward, this can be a spiritual guide or an earthly one. 

Telling the driver that you are heading to Bedford when in fact you have no earthly reason to go there has happened purely because you have had to give some expected destination rather than admit that you have no idea in which area or direction your life is currently heading. In other words you are saying that you are heading in a certain direction but truthfully you don't know why or where you are going, you are simply following destiny if you like. 

The weather being bad in your dream helps you to see that you have no control over outside circumstances, they will affect where you go and how you get there. Outside circumstances will affect your spiritual journey, it will seem as though your learning slows-up, but I have to tell you that it is at these times when you do the majority of your learning ironically. You hear more from the quiet than you do from the noise. 

"In the house I found myself in a room with the two women, they were sitting either side of a table. I looked away and then looked back at them, both of them had aged about 40 years. I looked away again and then looked back to find the older woman had returned back to her normal age but the other younger woman was not there. I looked behind me to see her standing facing a door laughing as if she had a severe mental condition and banging her head on the door. I looked back to the table and the older woman had gone, then I looked back to the door and the younger woman had gone."

This part of your dream could be referring to your personal life as I said before, the women represent past relationships and how love can disappear just as memories can, all this can send you crazy or perhaps the relationship section of your life or women in general drive you crazy (No offence to women out there, we drive men crazy just as much as they drive us crazy

The young and old features of this part of your dream seem to want you to take note of how women change over time and how you and your relationship with women has changed over time. 
If someone is banging their head on the wall it clearly translates as someone who is getting nowhere or making no progress at all, they are getting frustrated by keep repeating the same thing over and over. Think about who is doing this?

"The door where she was banging her head had turned into a sort of carpet hung over the doorway. I went through the doorway and found myself in a large room with French windows on the other side. I went through the French windows and found that it was snowing. Then I met my son who was some 10 years younger and we had great fun kicking about in the snow."

The carpet is covering over the cracks, cushioning someone from being hurt by moving forward. The large room explains how there is a lot of room in your life for someone else, perhaps someone new. 
As much as you love the time you spend with your son it is snowing and this represents the coldness that you are experiencing from not having someone special to share your heart with. The fact that your son is ten years younger helps you to acknowledge that time has passed and you are not needed as much now as you were then.

This dream is concentrating on both your spiritual learning and your personal life and it is suggesting that you haven't integrated these different sections of your life fully. To be completely contented and fulfilled you must find a partner who will be part of your spiritual journey as well as your earthly life. 
Easier said than done I hear you say, but this dream wouldn't have happened if there wasn't a possibility of this becoming likely. Perhaps you need to readjust your thinking (which has come from previous relationships) so that you are ready and able to move forward.

Past life dream

I saw these three dreams through my own eyes which is why they are different from my usual dreams. In my usual dreams I watch myself doing things however in these  I can touch things and feel them etc. I see it all through my own eyes like I'm actually there and not just observing.

Ok,  this is unusual, a high percentage of people experience their dreams through their own eyes and don't actually watch themselves carry out scenarios in a dream, yet you are saying that your everyday dreams are played out with you watching yourself, like watching a film. So now having experienced a dream the other way round it is new and different for you. 

I don't think I have ever had a dream where I am watching myself, I am always fully present and participating in my dream, in fact I am normally completely unaware of having a body at all, unless the dream symbols or scenarios are about a body part or require me to see myself, for example I dreamed that I had an injured leg so I looked down at my leg to examine the injury I couldn't feel any pain although I knew that I should be feeling some pain. 

I'm sure that your usual way of observing a dream is more common than I have personally experienced and I hope that other people add a comment or send me acknowledgement of their own usual way of experiencing their dreams. Hopefully this will shed more light on this particular subject for you. 
I am glad that you have now experienced how real and fascinating dreams can be when you are participating instead of merely being an observer. Perhaps there is some sublime message in this information alone, in that actually participating in life is much more fulfilling than just watching life happen around you, or in just watching life pass you by. 

Your Dreams:
Anyway last week, I went to bed and I dreamed for the entire night. It was exhausting. I dreamed that my ex was a really rich man, I don't know when it was but we were wearing clothes from the 17 or 18 hundreds.... 

I was cleaning the fire and he came in and grabbed me, I felt really pleased to see him. It was obvious we had been in love for a long time. I went to put my arms around him but he pulled away. He seemed really angry. He said I had let his secret out and he told me to leave the house. He called me Margaret and I was pregnant. 
I remembered that I had told a girl about our relationship and that I was pregnant. It was his baby. He threw me out and I was banging on the door begging him to let me in. He was ashamed to be with me as I was poor and he was rich. But he had promised we would be together. He had me escorted from the grounds. There was a lot of detail in this dream and it was hours long. I can't remember all of it except his parents saying he couldn't marry me and his dad giving me money telling me to never return.

The next night I went to bed and straight away fell into the same dream. Except now I was walking along carrying a three year old child in my hands. My clothes were in rags and I had no shoes upon my feet. The floor was bitterly cold and wet. I could feel it. My child "Rose" I called her, she was cold and sick. I walked all night holding her. Through woods over fields along dark empty roads. I cried the whole way willing her to live. I was exhausted when I woke up and my feet were frozen stiff and my arms ached from holding the baby. 

The next afternoon I fell asleep on the sofa and again I went back to the walk I had been on with Rose my baby. I finally arrived at a huge house and made my way to the kitchen door. A woman was there and was shocked to see me. She was some kind of cook. I said "Charlotte please let me in the child is sick" and she just put her head down and said not to say she had a even seen me. I said "Charlotte  you know he loves me and he will help me I've no doubt."

I was really scared as I made my way along along corridor to a room with a huge painting of horses on the the wall. My ex was there.

I fell to my knees and begged him "please our child is sick" and I looked into the the face of the child I had carried for so long for the first time. She was beautiful. Just like him in every way. He smiled at my voice and ran to me and held me raining kisses on my face saying sorry over and over.

Then a bell rang... 

But he was angry and stormed over, I felt the floor shake with every step and he struck me across the face calling me stupid and asking me why I didn't write. I dont think could write or read....He said I had ruined everything by going there. And I told him I just needed money for a doctor and I would go. I said to him you loved me once and I kept saying "you loved me, the child is yours don't let her die."

But he again grabbed my arm and began to drag me and my child across the floor. He was saying :my father won't be happy you returned.

Then a beautiful woman appeared, she was like a princess. Dressed with jewels and a huge skirt. She asked what was going on and my ex just dragged me kicking and screaming out of the house and ordered two men to take me out for two days and leave me wherever we got to.

The woman ran outside and grabbed the horse who was pulling the carriage I was in and she asked me what happened. I explained how the child was his and being unmarried I could not find work. I was homeless with the child living hand to mouth stealing and borrowing to get by. My family had disowned me and no one would take me In. The church had given me some food and clothing for the child. But she was now sick and I couldn't get a doctor and I feared she would die. I had previously tried to return to him however his family would not let him speak to me.

The woman couldn't believe what she was hearing for she was to marry him and always thought he was known to be selfish and mean by all who knew him, but she hadn't believed it, but now she thought him wicked. She ordered the man to take me to her house immediately and fetch the doctor on the way. She then got into her own carriage behind mine and my ex ran from the house shouting at her to come back at once. And she shouted back that he would die alone for how he treated the poor girl and her child.
This dream lasted three sleeps and I think it is a past life dream? 

This dream is absolutely fascinating and as I was reading I felt as though I was reading a Charles Dickens tale, and yes my very first thought was that this is a past life dream, they are rare, but they do happen, usually at a time when your past story has some significance on your present story. Your ex in this life it seems, was the catalyst for much sadness and unkindness in your past life together. You obviously had unfinished business in that life as well as an on-going passion which has overlapped into this life. To cut a long story short the aim of these dreams was  probably to help you come to terms with and let go of the past, the distant past and also the past in this life as well. 
Unfortunately people often connect with and share a deep bond with someone who isn't necessarily good for them, your ex may or may not be quite as shallow and hurtful as he was in the previous existence but you obviously fell for his charms all over again, as we often do. Like I said he may have progressed somewhat from his previous demeanour but as he is your ex so I guess there were still a lot of problems that prevailed in your relationship this time round.   
The fact that you had three dreams warning you about the past relationship with him is interesting in itself because I have known on many occasions that people are told something three times by spirit dream creators to really drive a message home. You get three warnings about something then that's it, their job is done! 
I think you must realise that it is time to let the past go, forgive him for his past misdeeds and forgive him for any hurt that he has caused you in this life, when you have done this (and it might take time) you will then be ready to move forward and start a new relationship, fresh and free from the trappings of negativity and sadness which could and usually does hamper a new relationship. Perhaps the next relationship you have will be built on something more solid and satisfying. It is really hard to let someone go who you love deeply but who is just not good for you. Do not repeat past mistakes and do not go back to something that wasn't right the first time round.... and I promise you with all my heart that it is possible to love someone new. 
Interestingly there is probably some symbolism from the women in your dream who helped you, maybe you can find some comparison with a women in your life now who helps you to see your way out of the trappings of bad relationships. 
Thank you for sharing this unusual and thought provoking dream.
