Ever have a fiery crash in your dreams? Whether it’s a car, plane or bus, the crash dream is scary as heck and often makes us fearful of traveling. You’ve got to remember though, that dreams are symbolic and as scary as a crash dream may be, the message it has for you is unbelievably helpful to your life…

Dear Lauri,
I dreamed that my dad and dog and I were on a plane when the wings broke off and we crashed into the ocean. We survived but my dog had turned into a fish. With its fins and tail severed and died in my arms. Also the ocean turned out to be a huge pool.   – Candice 31, Middletown, NY

Lauri: The plane crash suggests something you had high hopes for came crashing down instead of reaching new and higher levels. This most likely has to do with a relationship since your dog was a part of the dream. Dogs can usually be connected to a relationship in your life where there is friendship and loyalty. The breaking off of the wings suggests there has been a break up. Your dog turned into a fish because your dreaming mind is telling you there are other fish in the sea… and at the same time another part of you is telling you, “No more relationships for now,” hence the fish dying in your arms. The fins and tail are severed just like the wings of the plane that broke off, which means your wiser inner dreaming mind is telling you it is best that you sever ties. The ocean represents the vast, even overwhelming idea of dating again… it shrinks down to a pool because your dream is trying to show you the “dating pool” isn’t as overwhelming as it may seem at the moment. You can totally handle it! Don’t be overwhelmed or afraid. You deserve a healthy life companionship.

Candice replies: That interpretation was entirely spot on. I did just go through an awful breakup with a guy that had turned abusive towards me. I knew the dream stemmed from the breakup and am finding it probably is best to sever all ties from that person. The explanation was extremely helpful Thank you so much!

ctdcAs you can see from this dream, our dreams have an awful lot to tell us, every single night! No matter what issue life throws at you, your dreams will always be there to guide you through and help you find the answer you need… once you can understand them. You see, our dreams speak in symbols and being able to know what those symbols in your dreams mean is a huge key in unlocking the message. My book Cracking The Dream Code has a comprehensive dream dictionary of 1000 symbols fully explained: planes, fish, dogs, death, you name it, this book covers it! You’ll also learn how to remember your dreams, how to understand all the different parts of  your dreams and even how to dream about anything you want!! Trust me, bedtime will never be the same…

“I gave my daughter Cracking The Dream Code last night and she LOVED IT!  She claimed (from reading your book) that she already ‘made’ the dream she wanted to happen last night, happen.  *lol*  She wanted to write it down this morning and even took the book/journal with her to school today.” – Jennifer Keyes, Holt, MI
