A dream about losing my fingernails


It starts of when I find myself in an enormous bed and I am laying on my side facing the wall.  Laying behind me is a muscular and very tall man with very long blonde hair, the length is to his waist and it is gathered or tied at the back of his head. He is like a Viking warrior. He is about 40+ and has distinct facial folds and is smiling. (We do not touch or talk to each other)
The man’s mother is walking back and forth at the end of the bed frantically and eventually she goes out the door. Then my fingernails break off, I gather them up in one hand but they fall back onto the bed clothes, I then gather them up again in one hand.
Then the alarm goes, I wake up and my first reaction is to open my hand to find it empty, and my fingernails are all OK.

Broken fingernails have been a part of my dreams a lot lately.

Let’s take a look at the symbolism to start us off and see where that takes us.

Beds relate to our peace and tranquillity, our comfort at the end of the day when our work is done, they also relate to our personal space, and where we spend time with our partner. An enormous bed is a symbol which helps you to understand that you have plenty of room in your life to share this part of yourself with someone else, sharing your personal space and being at peace with who you are. 
Facing the brick wall is another way of saying that “it’s like talking to a brick wall.” Perhaps someone is trying to help you feel comfortable with yourself but you are not really listening, after all, it’s how you feel about yourself that really matters. Walls are also symbolic for obstacles and what stands in your way, how hight the wall is and if you attempt to get over it can help you understand if the obstacle is impassable at the moment. 

The muscular tall man is a symbol of the male or men in general, his long blond hair and Viking warrior appeal to help you understand masculine vitality, but he is around 40 you notice, so perhaps the message is that sex appeal is in the eye of the beholder and that you should not confuse age with attraction, you are perhaps feeling as though you are losing your own power of attraction, losing your nails is a perfect way to portray this notion, losing your feminine charms or attractiveness. Actually, it is just life and its demands that is draining you of energy nothing much to do with age. 

Nails and hair symbolise our inner strength, they grow throughout our life and so are a renewable source, meaning that sometimes we don’t feel that we have the strength to deal with something but this isn't a long term thing, so your strength will return with some relaxation and rejuvenation, which beds also symbolise remember.
Gathering up your nails is you trying to gather up your strength and durability, you want to be everything to everyone but actually, this is leaving you feeling exhausted.

I have struggled to find the symbolism in the Viking warrior’s mother pacing up and down in your bedroom, I can say that the bedroom is no place for mothers to be, sometimes mothers add to our workload and looking after them as well as everyone else drains us emotionally and leaves us with no energy to be who we want to be in our own personal space if you know what I mean. At least she left.

The characters in your dream stand as a representation of the characters in your life, the partner full of energy and vitality regardless of his age, the mother figure impending on your personal space all leaving you feeling a bit drained. You are as hard as nails though and your energy will return as soon as you are a bit more upfront about needing ‘me time’.

A healing dream, absorbing the healing vibration


I was walking then running up steps and through doors, I was in some big place like a hotel. Then suddenly I was outside with nature, it was dark and there was only one way to walk down the road but there was also a river. I was afraid so I stopped and then I saw a man or a woman, I’m not sure. I could only see the lower part of their body because they were covered with a white scarf like a yoga teacher. I noticed that the hair was black and grey. I must have decided it was a woman and next she was sitting near the river and when she looked at me somehow I did compare her with my grandmother who died 22 years ago. As I was looking at her from her chest a light appeared and it was very strong, the vibration was something that I have never felt before shining so strong and radiating through the air, everything was full with light and it came into me through my chest to the whole of my body. I have recently had a problem with one tooth and my gum and in the dream, the light penetrated that part of me as well. There was also some sound while this going on and I was completely fulfilled with the light. There was nothing else I could see around me only the wonderful light which I can only describe as a galaxy starlight. I've never had an experience like this before. 

What an amazing way to receive healing through your dream because that’s what this was. In your dream you are running up steps and through doors which is way of explaining that you are always on the go, dealing with uphill struggles and choosing what doors of opportunity to take next, doors are often used in dream imagery to represent changes and new opportunities and the fact that you are running is helping to describe how you rush from one thing to another and end up going in circles rather than making steady progress. You said yourself in your email that you have learned to slow down and that rushing things seems to get you nowhere so I guess you have already picked up on that message already. 

Being in a hotel is a message about temporary situations and if you want better stronger results or at least more permanent results it would be best if you slowed down and just appreciated the small and quieter moments that life has to offer, for example in a relationship you don’t have to be out doing stuff all the time sometimes it’s just as satisfying to stay in a watch tv. 

In the next part of your dream, you find yourself outside with nature and that is exactly where you need to be rather than always working, hustling and bustling and being on the go all the time. Being in the dark is a symbol of being kept in the dark, or in your case, I think it’s more about the fact that you need some light in your life, something that’s isn’t draining all your positive energy, being around people who are not taking from you all the time. You need to be surrounded by positive energy giving people which isn't always possible I know.

The river is an emotional symbol which runs alongside everything you do, you are an emotional person who feels things deeply and you can’t do anything in your life without your emotions being involved. You are not the sort of person who can detach yourself from problems or worries, you take everything to heart. 

The lady who you come across in the yoga scarf might possibly be your grandmother bringing you healing and showing you that yoga or meditation would be a way for you to relax and take time out from the world, you are fundamentally a spiritual person who can connect to the source (God) and the wonderful energy of the healing light will bring you peace, understanding of your true self and a way to escape the negativity of your earthly troubles. Being in the dark is also being explained because you really need to be true to yourself and come into the light and embrace enlightenment. 

You are being shown the amazing love and healing that is available to you but you have to take the time-out to learn and experience the spiritual side of your life as well as your earthly life. I hope your grandmother did indeed heal your tooth, now she wants you to heal your mind, body and spirit and look after yourself as well as you look after everyone else. You are a healer I’m afraid, and that doesn’t mean that you sit people down and run your hands through their aura to give them healing, it means that your own amazing energy is transferred to them just by listening to them and being in the same room as them, that is why people always come to you for help. But being a healer it means you will need to de-stress or re-energise and meditation or yoga will help you rebuild your own energy so you don’t get sick. It’s a cleansing for your soul and that is what you have dreamed about.
One last thing, energy is a vibration and vibration is actually sound waves so that is why you heard sound when you received the healing. Everything has a vibration, the finer the sound the more pure the energy, have a look on You Tube about sound waves and watch videos on cymatics, watch as sound vibration creates beautiful shapes in sand and water.

A dream about being in a tall building and trying to escape a Tsunami


I was in a tall building somewhere in London, I knew there was going to be a tsunami. I went through the building trying to find a way out but every exit led somewhere else and then when I did find windows they were all double glazed so I still could not get out. I could see the sea getting higher and closer, I eventually found some people but I felt they were after me for being in the building. At last I found my way out, but the sea was coming in great big waves each wave getting bigger and bigger until it just enveloped me. I had to wake myself up.

A tsunami nearly always symbolizes emotions that are overwhelming and are fast in their approach, this might represent a time when you have no way of escaping events that are driven by powerful emotions. These emotional turmoils can be destructive and leave a mess to clear up and these types of dream can show you how emotions that are not released regularly will build up and overspill all in one go. 
Too much water simply equates to too many emotional issues to deal with, this usually causes an over-spill. 

The tall building can help to explain a few different things, maybe you always felt that you are above your emotions and that you are in control of them? You are aware now though that actually you are not and they are fast taking over. Being unable to escape the building is a simple way to explain being unable to escape your own predicament and not being in control of the outcome when your emotions are released. 

The doubled glazed windows are a representation of how you see things, you are steadfast in your beliefs and see things in your own way, but this insight cannot protect you from yourself and stop you from feeling overwhelmed. They say that windows are the eyes of the soul and in dream language they are often used to express how you see things in a spiritual sense, your double glazed windows can represent the protection you have against the world outside, it can be protective as I said but it can also stop other people from getting in and helping you. The people in your dream also back up this idea, you say that you felt they were after you just for being there. 

The people in your life or in your current set up (buildings can symbolise how your life is structured at the moment) are there for you but they also cannot protect you from yourself and how you feel. Perhaps you feel that they expect you to be strong and in control all of the time because they need you to be that way, but you can't be that person all of the time. In your dream you feel that the people are after you because you are not in the right place, you are not in the right place in your mind or emotionally speaking. 

There are times in our lives when other people cant help us feel better, you have to go through things on your own as it is your own learning. Being enveloped by the sea is symbolic for being overcome by mixed and confusing emotions. All I can do to reassure you is say that you will not drown, you will swim like crazy as you always have until your feet are firmly on solid emotion ground.

Dreaming about travelling to a country that you have never been to


I was traveling to a small island in Greece (I’ve never been to Greece). I was going there because my grandfather or great grandfather had been killed trying to protect that island and had been honored with a post mortem royalty title (I’m not aware of any Greek relative in my family). I wanted to find out if I could get any kind of benefit for being his relative, but apparently not. I visited his house. The rest of the dream was about a rivalry between 2 gangs on the island and I feared for my life. I felt safe once I left it. Do you think it could be a past life dream?

My first thoughts about this dream is to remind you that quite often our dreams relay messages of duo meaning, overlapping information which comes from the past but is also appropriate for the now or the future. Family members who have passed to the spirit world can convey experiences they have had in their own lives through our dreams, grandparents are legendary at telling their grandchildren stories of moral dilemma and they can still do this from their current vantage point in spirit. Your dream could, of course, be a past life dream and its purpose is to remind you that you have to earn your own entitlement, family ties and wishing things were different are not enough for you to succeed, you have to build up your own allies and strong links for a project to be a success.

The symbolism in the dream might help you to unravel this mystery. 
Travelling to a country where you have never been before or have no links with represents starting out on a journey that is new and uncharted, you haven’t been through this before and you haven’t got the contacts and support you need in order to feel secure, therefore you have to be more prepared and gather more information. Your reason for going down this road not traveled before is one of virtue, you wish to protect someone or something, maybe keep a family together or keep the family values alive.

You visited your grandfather’s house in your dream and that is the same as him saying “take a look at my life and use the knowledge to be wiser and worldlier.”
The rivalry might represent family rivalry and opposition which you understandably would rather not deal with or be a part of. Two sides battling with each other is an easy enough symbol to translate.

If this dream is based on your relative’s life or if it is a reflection of your own past life it doesn't really matter, the reason for reviewing it now is to help you understand your own journey at this time and to help you build up your own resources to deal with whatever new venture you have going on in your life.

Sometimes dreams are taken from a life experience bank or in other words spirit use the experience bank and show you somebody else's life experiences if the information is important for you.

A dream about going through a door and an old school friend


In my dream I am with a school friend (A girl) who I have not seen since we were 6 to 10 years of age at school,  in the dream, she has on a pink dress and blonde hair and she is a mature woman. Someone told us that we need to go through a door, but the door leads only to a great chasm, I said to my friend that we will not go through that door, but we should go in the other direction, but another person, (unrecognised) is gesturing us both to go through the door, as if the person wants us dead. We do not go through the door. I wake up in a sweat and I have been nervous for the last two days.

Doors often represent different opportunities or choices that are available to you and a chasm represents a great divide or void, it helps us recognize when a choice we make can lead us nowhere, and feeling as though that choice or opportunity will lead to certain death is just another way of acknowledging that this direction will lead to a dead-end. Dream symbols often use puns to get a message over. So this dream is translating the message of a dead-end opportunity, the dream is not relaying the message that you will die if you make the wrong choice so calm those nerves.  
Dreams are often misinterpreted and taken literally and people do get nervous when dream imagery is clear, easily remembered and uses death imagery, but often this is done so that you don't make the wrong choice and also when you are not listening to your own instincts. 
The first part of the dream where you have met up with an old friend from school wants you to recognize how you have matured and grown up, you need to look back and see how far you have come, the chasm or abyss can also link with the great divide between who you were then and who you are now. You were a small child at school and now you are a mature woman, your own life learning (because you have mentioned school) has developed and grown from all the life experiences you have had so far. In your dream your instincts tell you not to go through that door, you know it will be a dead end. Even if someone else tells you to go through it, you are not that silly now you are longer in the tooth (wiser). 

The act of going through something in a dream, like going through a door represents the experiences you yourself go through, in a way you are saying I am not going through all that again. 'I'v been there and done that and my wisdom tells me I'm not going to do it all again'. 

What section of your life this dream is referring I cannot say, quite possibly it will link with work, career, friendships or relationships with colleagues because it has used the symbol of a school friend. I do not feel it links with intimate relationships as
other imagery could have represented those situations better. School is often used to symbolise working relationships, people who you would share the academic or career-type journey. A school is a place where we work alongside people who we share our learning with so it could also represent people who you share a spiritual learning journey with. Maybe an avenue of spiritual learning is a dead end for you, you have progressed passed what it can offer you. 

Another symbol you have mentioned is that your friend was dressed in pink, this is a nice symbol, when someone is 'in the pink' it means they are happy and doing well. Pink is a friendship color. Being tickled pink means that you are really happy about something. 
Friendships can be more far-reaching than we ever realize, we can know someone for a relatively short time but they have a great impact on us
Sometimes, friends, we haven't seen for a very long time pop into our dreams to say hello or offer support just like they would have when you were friends years ago. 

I once had a dream about someone I hadn't seen for years and years and in the dream, I was really pleased to see them and we just said Hi and she told me how she was doing. We had no chance of meeting in real life as she had moved to the other side of the world, but in dreams, distance is no obstacle. 

Therefore I conclude that your dream was a reminder to remember how far you have come, don't waste your time on dead end opportunities that will lead you nowhere particularly useful. Use your own instincts to guide you in another direction which will bring positive opportunities your way. And it doesn't matter if you haven't seen someone for years and years, on a spiritual level you can still support them and help them on their journey. You and your friend have probably shared a similar life journey.
