sherry is a child. her mom is there. i think sherry is facing a wall and scribbling on a canvas that is propped up against the wall. i think that she is scribbling on it, but what she’s scribbling (or maybe what is already on there and her scribbling isn’t making anything new or is just continuing to contribute to that image) is that drawing of her running up a hill (the one in their living room).
Walls Definition from dreammoods.com
To see a wall in your dream signifies limitations, obstacles, and boundaries. There is a barrier obstructing your progress. Alternatively, the wall indicates that you are too accustomed to your old habits and way of thinking. You feel stuck. To dream that you demolish or break down a wall indicates that you are breaking through obstacles and overcoming your limitations. It also means that you desire some freedom and independence. If you see a wall crumble, then it suggests that you have risen above your problems and overcame your barriers. To dream that you are hiding behind a wall suggests that you ashamed in acknowledging your connections. To dream that you are being thrown or shot through a wall means that you need to literally breakdown those walls that you have put up around you. You need to venture out and explore.
Walls Definition from dreamsmeaning.org
A wall symbolizes the boundaries of a sacred space. We need to be aware of what our limitations are, not just spiritually but also emotionally. A wall has the symbolism of a dividing line – a marker between the inner and the outer, privacy and open trust. A hole in a wall suggests a breach of trust or privacy. If the wall is imprisoning us we are being held prisoner by our own fears, doubts and difficulties. If the wall appears and disappears, we have only partly dealt with our problem. These may be created as defence mechanisms or support structures, and it is sometimes helpful in the interpretation to decide whether the walls have been created in order to keep ourselves in, or other people out.
To dream that you are drawing represents an expression of your latent artistic abilities. You need to show more of your creativity in your waking life. Alternatively, the dream may be a pun on a “draw” to mean a tie or some undecided decision or argument. “It’s a draw.”
To see a canvas in your dream symbolizes potential and possibilities, especially if the canvas is blank. Consider the significance of what is on the canvas as, it is an aspect of your unconscious.
i am looking through sherry’s eyes. she’s facing a wall again, and she’s writing down a sentence she had read somewhere or been told by someone — only the version she’s writing down is extremely different from the version that it actually is. it seems like a translation or reinterpretation, and it is more destructive or “real” or something? the initial one was very childish; it was equally long, but the message it was conveying was very simple. her transcription might start with something like “there was”. not sure. when i first woke up i really remembered both sentences but have since forgot it.
Copying in spiritual terms signifies reproducing the perfect, producing duality where there was previously only one. It represents emanation, flowing out from the Divine. To be copying an action in dreams suggests we need to learn from others. When we find ourselves making copies we are aware that we need to retain information for ourselves. Such a dream can suggest the idea of reproduction.
To dream that you are writing signifies communication with someone or with your conscious mind. Alternatively, writing refers to an error in judgment or a mistake that you have made. The dream may also be a metaphor that you are “right” or that your political views are right leaning. To see ancient writings in your dream suggests that there is something you need to learn and understand from the past.

i feel very strongly that these past three dreams i’ve had about sherry are prophetic, and that this upcoming period of time will be extremely transformative for her. its particularly interesting to me that both of these first dreams are dealing with walls, but her writing top or within the confines of the walls to create very new things. i don’t think i’ve ever had a dream where i’ve been looking through the eyes of someone else i know.
i’m with my mom and we have opera tickets, so we’re headed there. we’re fairly early, and there are a hundred seats or something, but there’s no line (there are scattered people) when we go because it’s so early. there is a huge row of turnstiles, like at bart or something. there’s at least eight of them. my mom is in front of me. she scans her ticket but the turnstile turns by itself before she goes through all the way and she’s kinda stuck in-between. i too scan my ticket and am surprised (as i was when my mom scanned hers) that it is actually like a barcode scanning device rather than something you slide or put the ticket into. similarly, my ticket is scanned and the turnstile turns before i even get through it (in fact, i don’t even START to go through it, whereas my mom had). my mom ends up having to climb through or duck under (i don’t recall) the last bar, and i end up having to climb through all three as well. there was an asian dude who was checking tickets, kinda, or was a security guard or something, and he is fairly far away in this big room thing (it opens up a bit after you get through the turnstile). he seems to start to come over and i start thinking that i need other people to back up my claim to prove that we didn’t just hop the turnstile. i think i want to reference the person behind me (it seems like there’s now a line, kinda), and i think she seems ready to help us explain the situation.
To see a line in your dream symbolizes duality, limits, boundaries and rules. It also relates to movement or non-movement. To see a line of people or objects indicates that you need to be more aware of some situation or relationship. Spiritually in dreams a line can have great significance. The straight line can represent time and the ability to go both forward and back. When horizontal the line is the earthly world and the passive point of view; when vertical it is the spiritual world, the active aspect and the cosmic axis. Psychologically, we tend to need boundaries or demarcation lines, and those lines can be demonstrated in dream symbolism in ways that might not be feasible in everyday life. For instance, jumping over a line would suggest being brave enough to take risks. A line of objects might signify the choices we are offered. A line in a dream often marks a boundary or denotes a measurement. In dreams, it can also signify a link between two objects to show a connection that is not immediately obvious. A straight line suggests a direct approach, the shortest way between two objects or places. A line of people or queue would suggest an imposed order for a particular purpose. If we are waiting in line, the purpose of the line will be important in interpretation.
To watch an opera in your dream represents your quest for the grander things in life. The dream may also be trying to tell you that you are being overly dramatic in some waking situation.
To see a ticket in your dream represents the price you need to pay to attain your goals. You have decided on your path in life. A ticket signifies the start of a new endeavor. Consider also the type of ticket. Generally, a ticket suggests that there is a price to pay for something. A bus ticket would indicate that there is a price for moving forward, as might a train ticket. A ticket to a theatre or cinema may suggest we need to take a back seat and be objective over a part of our lives. Tickets to a football or rugby match might mean that we will have to pay for some area of conflict in our lives.
To dream that you are confused, reflects your true confused state of mind and the nonsensical events of your waking life. Isolate the single element in your dream that is confusing to you and analyze the meaning of that particular symbol. Alternatively, dreams of confusion indicate that you are being pulled in opposite directions or you do not know which viewpoint is right.
To see machinery in your dream suggests that you are too mechanical – going about your way without much thought and making decisions without thinking it through. You need to get out of your boring pattern. Alternatively, the machinery symbolizes your mind or your body. Examine how the machinery is running and its condition and function. If the machinery is in need of repair, then it suggests that you may need to repair aspects of your self-image or a relationship. If the machine is rusty, then it signifies an outdated way of doing something.
To see a metal bar in your dream represents your own inner strength. You have the ability and tools to build a solid foundation and future. Alternatively, metal bars symbolize defiance and aggression.
Climb (only because I can’t think of what other term would be better)
To dream that you are climbing up something (ladder, rope, etc.) signifies that you are trying to or you have overcome a great struggle. It also suggests that your goals are finally within reach. Climbing also means that you have risen to a level of prominence within the social or economic sphere.
To see or dream that you are a security guard suggests that you are seeking security in some situation or relationship. The dream is compensating for the lack of security in your waking life. Alternatively, the dream means that there is something of value that you want to protect. In dreams, when we become conscious of someone standing guard or guarding an object we perhaps need to be careful of our actions.

i’m hoping this dream is prophetic, and that big things are on the horizon… trying to figure out the technicalities of it, but it seems to be that things will be faster than anticipated? i’m really not sure.
i am in some room — like a really brightly lit backstage studio makeup room (though there are no chairs) — with another girl. it might be sherry, but i can’t be sure. we are putting on lipstick (i actulaly think that person first shows me how), only it is a kinda chunky powdery substance, similar to flour in consistency. you dip your fingers into but then it works like regular lipstick when you put it on your lips. it turns from dry to wet, dull to shiny. i choose this really light shade and look in a mirror to put it on. it makes my lips a light pearl color, and it looks rather good, although it is really dramatic. i am reminded of a ballet dancer or something, i dunno why. i take pigment from another lipstick shade and this one is a darker pink. i use it to put a line down the middle of my bottom lip, like kabuki makeup, and it looks pretty awesome. to my left is another room, and in it are three girls; one is lying down on a bed and sleeping. two others are doing i dunno what but i seem to get the impression that they know about this makeup too (?) the room is really dimly lit. when i look back at the mirror at my lipstick, the kabuki line i had added is still there, but it has faded to be closer to the color of the really light pink lipstick shade. but then i look closer and the whole thing has begun to crack, and from the center of the bottom lip, begins to peel off like a piece of gluestick that has been congealed together on your hands.
Mirror Definition from dreammoods.com
To dream of your own reflection in the mirror suggests that you are pondering thoughts about your inner self. The reflection in the mirror is how you perceive yourself or how you want others to see you. You may be contemplating on strengthening and changing aspects of your character. Mirrors symbolize the imagination and the link between the conscious and unconscious.
Mirror Definition from dreamsmeaning.org
The mirror in dreams suggests self-realization, which reflects spiritual wisdom. As a means of understanding ourselves on a deeper level, we can set up a dialogue in real life between our mirror image and ourselves. Many of the insights gained can be quite startling. As a symbol in dreams it allows us to search our self-image and make whatever changes are necessary. To be looking in a mirror can signify trying to look behind us without letting others know what we are doing. We may have a concern over past behaviour. We may also need to ‘reflect’ on something we have done or said. When the image in the mirror is distorted we are having a problem in understanding ourselves. When the mirror image speaks to us we should be listening more closely to our inner selves.
To see your reflection in your dream represents your true self; it is time to look within. The reflection may highlight both your flaws and positive attributes. Learn from your flaws and how to improve them.
Symbolically Spiritual truth that is available to us at any particular stage of understanding is often shown to us as though in a reflection. It is as if we need an image that gives us tangibility. Often, to see a reflection in a dream is to try to be understanding the inner self and the way that we cope with the outside world. If in a dream the two images do not correspond, we will need to make some kind of adjustment in order to live comfortably within the everyday world. Our inner self must give the impetus to the outer reality. A reflection seen in a dream has a great deal to do with the way we see ourselves at that particular moment. Our self-image is important to us, as is the way other people see us. If the reflection is in a mirror, then our image will be perhaps more ‘solid’, whereas one seen in water will be more transient. The story of Narcissus and the way he fell in love with himself (or rather his own image) is a warning to all of us against self-worship.
To see something powdery in your dream suggests that you need to be more refined in your behavior and speech.
To buy, see, or wear lipstick in your dream suggests that you are not entirely truthful about something. The dream seeks to draw attention to your lips. Perhaps you need to be careful about what you or someone else is saying. Alternatively, it signifies sexuality and sensuality, especially if the color is red.
To dream that you are applying makeup suggests that you are trying to cover up or conceal an aspect of yourself. Alternatively, it indicates that you are putting on your best face forward. You are trying to enhance your self-image and increase your sense of self-confidence.
To see something shiny in your dream represents your potential that has yet to be unleashed. Consider the significance of the shiny object as it holds something important.
To dream that you are wet indicates that you are overcome with emotions. It also signifies a spiritual cleansing, rebirth or renewal. Alternatively, the dream may imply sexual arousal.
Colors in dreams represent energy, emotions, and vibes. First consider what that single color in your dream means to you and your own personal associations and relationship with that color. In general, pale pastel colors indicate weakness or subtlety. Dark colors represent passion and intensity. Bright colors mean awareness.
Pink represents love, joy, sweetness, happiness, affection and kindness. Being in love or healing through love is also implied with this color. Alternatively, the color implies immaturity or weakness, especially when it comes to love. Consider also the notion of getting “pink slipped”.
To dream that you are a ballerina suggests that you are moving through the obstacles of your life effortlessly. You feel unrestricted. It is also a symbol of innocence, frailty, and vulnerability. Alternatively, you may feel unable to attain and measure up to society’s ideals of beauty. The fairylike appearance of the classical ballerina within a dream shows we are making a connection with the creative energy within. Also we are searching for balance and poise.
To dream that something is bright represents divinity, a higher consciousness, and spirituality. You need to show your honor toward an important an person or situation. The dream may also be a metaphor for intellect and someone who is smart. If your dream is particularly bright and vivid, then it could indicate a prophetic or epic dream.
To dream that it is dim indicates that you are lacking clarity in a waking situation. You need to shed some light or perspective on the issue. Alternatively, the dream may be a metaphor for someone who is dumb or stupid.
To dream that you are peeling something represents the shedding away of old ways, habits and conditions. It may also mean that you are finally getting rid of and discarding unneeded exterior pretenses.

there are a LOT of parallel symbols here, stacked atop one another. i think it all has to do with my book that i just finished writing. i have been feeling slightly wary about some parts of it and wondering if just how open i should be about its information because it could potentially hurt some people. the dream seems to be telling me to reassess these things, but at the same time, seems to be saying that the book in general is a positive thing. i think.
