Ever dream something strange happens to your hair? Maybe you cut it all off or maybe something gets stuck in it… something really gross! As far as body parts go, dreaming of hair is pretty common. The reason why is because of what hair is symbolic of: your plans, your ideas, that which is on your mind because all of these things, like hair, sprout from the head.
Below is a dream I helped a friend with just this week. It’s pretty gross but at the same time, very informative. So much so that I used it in my weekly newspaper column The Dream Zone…
A few nights ago I had a dream that I walked inside from being on my porch and noticed that there were slugs in my hair, slime and the whole bit! Totally freaked me out and woke me up. What does this mean? – Deborah 41, Nashville, TN
Lauri: Your hair represents your thoughts, your ideas, that which is on your mind. The slugs suggest that something has been bugging you but more specifically, it could be connected to someone you feel is slimy or they could represent that you have been feeling sluggish and down about something. Whatever it is, I’m wondering if it is something you have been keeping to yourself and are internalizing since, in your dream, you went from the outside to the inside. I believe the message of this dream is that in order to get this slimy situation out of your thoughts, you have to “come out” and be open and honest about it.
Deborah replies: Wow, that totally makes sense. There is someone whom I’ve questioned their ethics/morals lately and have been bummed to learn that my intuition was correct. I tell my sister everything, but kept this one pretty close to the vest for two days before I shared a lot of it with her. The whole situation was something that disturbed me waaayyy down inside. Thank you for helping me to understand what the dream represents!
As you can see, dreams absolutely have meaning. What’s more, once you are able to understand them you’ll find that they offer very good advice, like Deborah’s dream. They are full of wisdom, ideas… answers! One of my clients refers to dreams as having a second brain. I love that analogy. It is like having a second brain, a night brain that is so much smarter and intuitive than our day brain.
Want to be able to understand and better communicate with your 2nd brain? Want to be able to better remember the dreams your 2nd brain is giving you every night? My dream books will not only have you remembering your dreams but understanding them, in no time! It’s not just fun to be able to figure out your dreams, it’s unbelievably empowering! Want an edge in life? Listen to your dreams!!
“Dream On It is a must read! I Could not stop reading it. This book is amazing and never have I understood more about my dreams as I do now. And remembering those dreams makes it so much better. Buy this book, you won’t be disappointed.” – Brandi, a reviewer on Amazon
i had a dream about sticky circle bits of what seemed to almost be plastic stuck in my hair , a whole bunch of them.
I had thumb tacks caught in my hair, really sharp too, not like normal these were overly sharp ones. I was able to get one out but the rest were stuck
A large butterfly caught in my hair
Me, too! It was beautiful, black and green, and already injured when it flew into my hair. It panicked and started biting me. It was on the back of my head and there was no way I could get it out of my hair carefully enough not to kill it. It was so sad. I am very sure this has to do with fears about sticking up for my career ambitions at work. My fear is that in order to keep things orderly and keep my job I have to smash my dreams.
Same here! There were over 50 monarchs that got stuck in my hair. Once I was able to get them out of my hair, I realized there was a pink and sticky, gum-like formation they were attracted to. I’m not sure if they were trying to hurt me because once they were out of my hair, all of them landed on the wall and stared at me. However, a moment later, my aunt noticed there was one left and I became so aggravated, I crushed and killed it. I felt terrible.
I dreamt last night that Birds were landing on my hands and I was happy and laughing
Then one became stuck in my hair and I had to ask for help to get it out.
Had a dream where I had chargers/USB cords in my hair
How about branches in your hair?
Mmmm…interesting food/hair for thoughts
