Reason #5: Dream Interpretation

I have crazy dreams. Bizarre dreams. Over-the-top-I-must-be-on-drugs dreams. I am sure that this won’t be the only dream that I blog about because, the truth is, my brain just knows how to put on a really good show while I’m asleep.
So a few nights ago I have this dream that I’m at a farming and agricultural show (again, I live in a hick town – farming conventions are common occurrences). At the event, there was a hedgehog table. I don’t know about you, but I think hedgehogs are the darned-cutest things in the world.

Darned Cute
 There were two hedgehogs that people were allowed to pick up and play with and race on this awesome little hedgehog racetrack there. Unable to resist, I picked up both and played with the adorable things.
When I was done, I went to the bathroom to wash my hands. Glancing at the mirror above the sink, I noticed that my cheeks were abnormally large. Not only that, but so were my lips. And my ears. My whole face was swelling at an alarming rate! My family, when I showed them, found the whole thing hilarious. “You must be allergic to the hedgehogs!” my brother howled.
And it was there that my dream ended. Upon waking, I immediately posted my dream on facebook as more of a reminder to myself to look up what it supposedly meant. Wouldn’t you be curious if you dreamt you were allergic to something as cute as a hedgehog?
 Later that day, I went on and looked up the words “allergy” and “hedgehog”.
DreamMoods so kindly informed me that, “To dream that you have allergies signify your sensitively to some situation. You may feel that you are physically or emotionally restrained from doing something.” It also told me, “To see a hedgehog in your dream suggests that you are being overly sensitive. You are taking everything too personally. Alternatively, it refers to losing your soul.”
I kid you not.
Sooo… basically, I am overly-sensitive to sensitivity. Oh, and I’m going to lose my soul. Great. Thank you, DreamMoods, for putting a smile on my face.
What bizarre dream interpretations have you had? I'd love to hear about them!


  1. Well i believe you missed a few things in your dream analysis.

    Hedgehogs do represent sensitivity, but you touched them, signifying that you have a desire to communicate your feelings.

    Furthermore the racetrack that you saw, I feel in this case symbolizes how you feel you keep going in circles and aren't resolving the issue.

    Washing your hands in the bathroom shows your need to cleanse yourself emotionally and psychologically and the need to let go of past relationships and emotions.

    Hope that can help interpret better.

  2. Thank you! I feel enlightened. What about the allergic reaction that I had to the hedgehog? Does that signify anything?

  3. Just like you said, the allergic reaction is the sensitivity. Just furthermore expressing your sensitivity to the issue.
