Ever notice how, in dreams, we often chow down on the craziest things? Shannen Doherty (of 90210 fame) claims to have recurring dreams of eating remote controls!  Lisa Marie Presley once confessed to dreaming of eating a ski pole!! My career provides me with the perks of hearing how the strangest things are quite edible in dreams.  In fact, the most common object people seem to enjoy feasting on the most is broken glass.  Read on to find out how the objects we eat in dreams are showing us how well our needs are being fed in waking life…

Dear Lauri,
I was eating some food with this guy I have a love-hate relationship with. I suddenly noticed I was chewing on a piece of broken glass. I gave it to the guy, who acted concerned, and he took action to go report the incident.  Very quickly he returned and I can remember just spitting and vomiting out a pile of glass that was almost as tall as I was. I couldn’t stop it from forming in my mouth. I just kept constantly spitting. It was really weird.    – Kyra 37, Chicago, IL

Lauri: What your dream is showing you is that something you “hungered” for in waking life (which is most likely the relationship with this person), at first “fed” your needs and desires but now is causing you pain because certain hopes and ideals have been shattered (the broken glass).  You are chewing on the glass because chewing is a metaphor for thinking about something “chew on this” as they say.  Have you been thinking about speaking up to this person? You give him a piece of the glass because you must have offered up a piece of your mind to him in real life. The way he shows concern, takes it and reports it, seems to indicate that he came across to you as really caring about what you had to say and perhaps even promised to behave. But alas, his quick return in the dream means he quickly returned to his old ways.  And this is why, at that moment, you began vomiting… because you need to purge yourself of this unhealthy relationship immediately.  The more vomit, the more urgent it is. Might be best to move on from him so that glass is no longer a part of your dietary intake.

Kyra replies: Wow! You hit the nail on the head. I have not voiced my concerns to him yet, BUT there is a whole lot I have been holding in .  You really have helped to shine some light on my situation.

Your dreams are such a powerful part of who you are.  They are giving you answers and direction, even warnings you need to know every night of your life. Why wouldn’t you want the ability to understand these important, even life-changing messages? Grab yourself a copy of one of my books and you’ll easily understand your dreams every morning and get a HUGE edge in life.

I absolutely love your books! They are helping me sort my dreams out already.” – Belinda, Savannah, GA
