I had a dream last night that completely befuddled me. Someone (maybe even myself, I don't remember the face) and her significant other was playing with a child (that I didn't see) with some strange toys. One I specifically remember is a baby doll, but it had two heads. Does this two-headed doll mean anything; like the child being a Gemini, being a twin, or having two heads or a birth defect itself? Or is it the fact that my step sister was watching 'Jane the Virgin' outside my door and I was just being weird? Just curious.
The need for self-nurturing, and responsibility for yourself or others.
Dreaming that you are pregnant or that you have a baby you don't have in real life can mean:
You could benefit from paying more attention to your own needs, especially those of your inner child
Taking on responsibility for someone else or taking on too much responsibility
You are contemplating having a baby or spending time around young children
An actual child or child-like person in your life
An adult who has been acting like a child, or with the emotional disposition of a child
The need for self-nurturing, and responsibility for yourself
Dreaming that you have a child that you don't have in real life can represent:
A feeling of responsibility for something or someone else in your life
A need to pay more attention to your needs or take better care of yourself in some way
Also consider what stands out about the child, such as physical characteristics that represent an actual person (child or adult) in your life, age, or specific actions.
one Purity. Perfection. Best. First priority. Single or solitary. Independent or strong. Unique or special. Unified or joined (as in a union in marriage where "two become as one," or as in "one for all and all for one").
sisterYour actual sister, or perhaps a person who feels like a sister to you.
Involving a romantic relationship or partnership
Companionship or the idea of not being alone
The idea of receiving spiritual assistance
A feeling of observing rather than participating
An objective or neutral observer's perspective
Curiosity or a desire to understand whatever is represented by the object being watched in the dream
Something that seems weird, odd, peculiar, or doesn't make sense in a dream can represent:
The characteristic that makes it seem odd (such as the crookedness of a crooked road representing a complex process, or a strange language representing a communication breakdown with someone)
Something in real life that doesn't make sense to you or that your subconscious mind is trying to understand
Someone or something in real life that you consider weird or different
The unknown, or a fear of the unknown or of things that are different
I think too many people immediately jump to trying to intepret dreams, but they do not even consider or contemplate what caused the dream to arise in the first place.
Scientifically, dreams are just a byproduct, caused by what you were thinking about, or something that you perceived during your waking hours.
I think a good habit for dreamers to have is to keep a daily, mundane journal. This way, they can check if their dreams are just derivatives from their experiences, thoughts and perceptions of their daily life, or if it is something more.
