Hello Sir Bruce,
I am 18 year old and I needed your help to figure out a deam of my mother regarding me. So the setup of the dream was that of a market area. My mother along with me and my 13 year old sister had gone out for shopping. While I was busy in a store choosing something, some 10-12 bad guys surrounded my mother. Then, they blackmailed me to dance in front of everyone on horrible songs. They had porn videos (starring me) being played on their mobile phones and everyone was kinda watching the show while I was being harassed.
My mother isn’t one of those open- minded persons. Next morning, she called me up and narrated her dream and asked me not to be friends with any guy. NEVER! What is worrying me more is that I have a boyfriend and as far as I know him, he isn’t one of those type of guys who just wanted to be with a girl for sexual pleasure. I don’t really want to bother much about this dream but I couldn’t help it. Will you please help me out with it?
With regards

I had the most unusual dream last night that involved my seven year old son. I was hanging off a bus flying down a highway with a girlfriend I haven’t seen or spoken to in years. We were laughing and the wind was rushing over us. I moved to the front to get a better grip when my son appeared. He was hanging from the top of the large vehicle. The wind was flapping him about like a flag and he was loving it. But suddenly he only had one hand and the vehicle wouldn’t slow down. He lost his grip and floated away landing with a thump below. I was immediately at his side and he was at the entrance to a hospital in India ( I have no idea how or why India). He came to and was his usual beautiful self only his legs were gelatinous in that they resembled a soft sea creature. Suddenly, I was awake. I am completely at a loss for understanding this one. I did not wake up sad just startled at what had just happened and a feeling to go check on him in his room. Any and all help is most appreciated. #weirdhuh

Given that I can’t really keep up with the demand for dream interpretation that I have been receiving and that I don’t have time to organize the material into a proper guidebook to nightmares about our children I have elected to take an interim step: to offer nine blog posts dealing with the most common categories of nightmare with some insights about overall themes and a quick guide to get a reader moving toward nightmares that might most closely resemble their own.

My hope is that if you find the best general category, and then go to that list of dreams which have been organized in terms of the age of the child in the dream, you may find some insights that you can then use to think about your own particular dream (and hopefully feel less afraid and more conscious about what is being stirred up for you and about how you personally discover is best to take care of your own self and your child).

Note that the threads are long and you must be patient in scrolling down through dreams until you find some that match the age or situation of your own dream.

While I realize it is still cumbersome to scroll down through multiple dreams until you reach one matching your child or your theme, my hope is that it will be somewhat easier than the random thread of comments at the original post.

So… If your dream involves water or drowning click here:

If your nightmare involves falling or flying try here:

If the core dread is kids running away or being hurt from neglect click here:

If kidnappers or scary animals, bad guys or monsters are the subject go here:

If the child actually does die in the dream click here:

If the dream involves overt abuse or graphic trauma read from here:

If the dream involves poison try here:

If there is a family feud or families fighting see these:

And finally, if the dream doesn’t quite fit any of the above categories but you suspect that it is teaching you something consider these dreams:

And… Sweet Dreams
