THE DREAM ZONE
with Lauri Quinn Loewenberg
I had a dream that I was at a salon with my fiancé getting our hair cut (something we would never do together) when we heard an uproar outside. We both ran outside to find panicked people running down the street shouting that another countrys army was in our city, and that everyone was evacuating. The army was on foot, slowly advancing throughout the city, and incredibly menacing. Do you think this is just the world news following me to sleep at night, or something with a more complex meaning?
Kelly, 29, Boston, MA
Lauri: It usually isnt a good idea to watch CNN before hitting the sack, as unsettling world events will certainly invade your dreams. However, I do believe there is a deeper meaning here ... because you mentioned you had a fiancé! Hair in dreams symbolizes your thoughts and ideas becauselike hairour thoughts and ideas sprout from our head. For you and your fiancé to be getting your hair cut must mean you are both re-thinking something or cutting some idea short. Certain wedding details perhaps? Maybe financial issues? Whatever the case, the change you two are making is because you are somehow feeling "under attack"hence the invading army. Are friends and family forcing their thoughts and opinions on you? Or is the pressure of having everything just right getting to you? Whatever the case, this dream is reminding you that you and your fiancé are in it together.
Kelly replies:Thank you. This makes so much sense. I never would have thought about it this way.
Fascinating Sleep Fact: According to the National Sleep Research Project, a new baby typically results in 400-750 hours lost sleep for parents in the first year!
