Dream Interpretation: A Wrecking Ball Crashes into My Life

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means (after the jump). This week, a woman asks Lauri:

In my dream I woke up to find a demolition ball outside of our apparent apartment building getting ready to start knocking down our building.  My younger twos’ father was just kinda standing there saying, “Oh cool…I forgot to tell you they were knocking this place down.” I’m running around getting the kids together so we can leave, and he sits down and watches TV…I wake up in a cold sweat.

Lauri: When we wake up in a dream, as you did, it means we have recently “woken up” to a real life issue we had previously been turning a blind eye towards.  What realization have you had lately?  From the context of this dream, alas, it seems to have been a rude awakening. What part of your life is on the verge of breaking down, of being destroyed?  In the dream it is being shown to you in the form of your home, which is a good indication your daily life, as you now know it, is at stake. This dream is a warning sign you are sending yourself that there is a very destructive force in your life that needs to be eliminated ASAP!  Is it the father of your two young children?  Or is it something else that he has sort of allowed to go on or has refused to help you with?  Just as you are rushing to get out of the apartment in the dream, so are you needing to urgently get out of a waking life situation. The father is of no help in the dream because, deep down, you know this is something only you can truly take care of.  The message of the dream is: get out of this situation ASAP before everything seemingly crumbles around you.
