I was in a building and exiting glass doors when Matt Laser (high school friend) was entering. I wanted to get into my apartment or hotel room, but I was locked out. Next to me on the floor was a pair of earrings made out of yarn. One was pink, the other purple, so I put them on. In the meantime, an African American maid walked by. I asked if she could unlock my door. She said “In one minute" and if I wrote a note saying that it was ok she would opened the door. I must have because she unlocked the door.

I place the earrings on a dusty table in the living room. On the table was a pad of paper, a pen and my keys. The maid looked around and said “Someone that lived here before was rich and this place was really nice. Now it is ok.” The place had all my furniture in it and by the dining room table there were groups of candles on the floor. After she left I changed my clothes. I put on argyle socks and a white jumpsuit with a gray sweater. I said to myself “It’s ok to wear white today. It is the last day of December and I won’t be able to wear them after today. I was getting ready to go to Cedar Point. (amusement park in Sandusky, OH)

Three people picked me up and I sat in the backseat of the car. Then I switched seats and sat in the front. The driver was a man. I put suntan lotion on my legs. They were really dark tan, so the suntan lotion made them smell good and shiny. The driver said he liked the smell, but to try the other suntan lotion, but I said “It doesn’t smell at all.” When we got to Cedar Point we went to the beach. When I opened the door I fell out as I asked someone to give me my drum in the backseat. Someone from the backseat handed me my drum and helped me up. I told the driver that I had swan to Cedar Point before and it wasn’t that hard holding your breath while swimming underground to get past the bay and into the lake. (This is the part where I had dreamt of a place that would hold water back until everyone could walk under the water around the peninsula to Cedar Point, like a levee. In that dream I was with a friend from high school, Mary Ann and her older brother)

The driver said he had also gone that way, but wondered why I wanted a drum. I said “there was a ride at Cedar Point that just goes around in circles and while I ride it, I wanted to play my drum.” The end.

Interpreting dream keywords:

Seeing Matt go through a doorway: Seeing other attempt to go through a doorway denotes unsuccessful attempt to get your affairs into paying condition. (At the time I was a single mother living in Schaumburg, IL and money was tight)

Locked out of a room signifies opportunities that are denied and not available to you or that you have missed out on.

Changing clothes represents the need for change and your need to fit into a new situation or role. You need to establish a new self-image. (I wanted to move back to Sandusky and six months later I did) Dreaming of white clothes means it is time to move on.

Wearing earrings suggests that you need to listen more carefully and pay attention to a message that someone is conveying to you.

Dusty table: To see dust in your dream suggests that certain aspects of yourself have been ignored or neglected.

Group of unlit candles in the dining room: To see an unlit candle denotes feelings of rejection or disappointments. You are not utilizing your fullest potential.

Cedar Point: To see or be in an amusement park in your dream indicates that you need to set some time for more relaxation and enjoyment in your life.

Getting out of the car looking at the beach: To dream that you are looking toward the beach suggests that you are returning to what is familiar to you. Alternatively, you may be adapting or accepting to the changes and circumstances in your life.

Backseat of the car: if you are sitting in the backseat of a car suggests that you are no longer in control of your life. You may be feeling overpowered, dominated and being told what to do. You need to start taking back control of your life. (Guess that’s why I moved up front)

Falling: To dream that you fall and are not frightened signifies that you will overcome your adversities with ease.

Suntan: To dream that you have a suntan signifies the shadow aspect of yourself and your primal instincts and natural senses. It is also indicative of hard work. You are owning up to your duties and responsibilities.

Drum: To see a drum foretells amiability of character and a great aversion to quarrels and dissensions.

Swim: If you are swimming underwater suggests that you are completely submerged in your own feelings. You are forcing yourself to deal with your unconscious emotions. Levee: Protection against trouble, challenges, or chaos. Something that separates or distances you from what's "out there" in your life

Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's important to consider:

• Personal meaning—What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
• Context—How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee—what was the bee doing, how and where is it, and how did you feel about it?
• Look beyond the obvious—A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
