The dream takes place in a house. The house is recurring in dreams but the subject and activities within change for each dream.
In this house I look out the window at night and see thousands of turtles that appear to be migrating on wet grass. The house is in the country so it’s a wide open field and I can see them all through the field walking past the house. I think there might be lightning because there were flashes of light where I could see just how many turtles there were. They are all moving with purpose in one direction. I was amazed and surprised at how many there were and wondered in my dream what was going on and where did all these turtles come from?
Then it’s daytime and I realize it’s time to cook lunch or supper and I put my son’s pet bearded lizard in a frying pan and put him on the stove. I turn the flames on and watch him start to cook and his skin turn brown. I have no feelings about this, it all seems very matter of fact in the dream. Then I realize all of a sudden that my son is watching me cook his pet and what am I doing? So I pull him out of the frying pan and put him in the sink and put cold water on him. Now I feel upset like what have I done and the rest of the dream I am checking on him constantly and making sure he isn’t too hurt and that he is recovering. I move him to different locations throughout the house or different bowls of water to help his skin feel better. I felt so ashamed and worried that I had done that to him.
The rest of the dream is my mom and dad helping me pack things into a van to move out of the house. But I don’t know where we’re going. It just feels like something we’ve already planned to do and are carrying out.
To be clear I love this lizard and cuddle with him even when my son’s not home. I have no feelings of ill will towards him and when I woke up I immediately had to go check that he was alright.
What on earth could this all mean?? Thank you in advance for reading this!
- Okay first I have to apologize because reading the part where you tried to fry your son’s lizard cracked me up. But in all seriousness, I think this might just mean that you’re worried about disappointing your kid. Maybe you did something recently that he didn’t like but at the time you didn’t question (like maybe throwing something away that you thought was scrap or something that he planned to make use of, just as an example) and you’re worried about it happening again.
