Winged Creatures

Remember those old galvanized tubs that were more like a large bucket? They were big enough to fill with water and let a toddler splash away to his heart’s content. Last night, I dreamed that two of the most beautiful creatures were swimming around in one. They looked like tiny humans. Their naked bodies were perfectly formed, and their iridescent wings glistened with lustrous colors of  turquoise and shimmering gold. Kicking their feet, entwined in each other arms, they swam around the perimeter of the galvanized tub. I was enchanted. It was pure pleasure to watch them.

Then a boy from my old neighborhood (1984 – 2002) – I apparently was living there again – appeared. I showed him the tiny creatures, and then, for some reason, I had to leave. When I returned, the creatures had been removed from the tub, and they were dead. I was bereft.

Dream Interpretation:

When someone appears nude in a dream, it means that a certain aspect or emotion of the dreamer is being expressed openly and without limitation, even to the point that the dreamer feels exposed or vulnerable.

To dream of other people being naked may represent “seeing the naked truth of a situation.” All weaknesses are out in the open.

To dream of wings represents feelings of new-found freedom. Success without limitations. Freedom to do something you want to do all the time. Feeling that nothing is holding you back. Alternatively, wings may reflect transcendence or your attempt to escape from a difficult situation. The ability to rise above and heal.

In the language of the mind, death usually represents the shift from one state of being to another. Although many may perceive death in a dream as frightening or negative, it usually correlates to a dramatic change or transition that is happening in the dreamer’s life.

This is the second dream I’ve had recently that was interpreted as representing a “shift from one state of being to another,” or a desire to transcend to another state or perhaps a greater understanding of myself or something in my life? To overcome? To heal?
