Here it is:

The Shoeless Wonder

Dream: I frequently dream that I am among a few people, some I know, some I don't and that I don't have shoes on. I dreamt the other day that I was at the airport and the plane was delayed, and I was walking around with no shoes on, in a panic. Nobody else seemed to notice but me. I frequently dream about not wearing shoes, or losing them.


To dream of not having any shoes on your feet symbolizes being unprotected, or at least *feeling* unprotected, and unprepared for challenges you are either about to go through, or are currently undergoing. An AIRPORT is usually symbolic of departing on a journey of spiritual awakening. This journey can be quite challenging, so it is understandable why you would be upset in the dream over feeling unprepared or unprotected. If these feelings are fears rather than reality, and you are indeed ready for your new lessons in life, then educate yourself so you can put your mind at ease and stop worrying too much. If you truly are not prepared for whatever you are undertaking, then this dream is a gentle warning to help you realize that you need to get more prepared so things won't be so difficult.

Other clue symbols in your dream are that you are among people you both know and who are strangers. Any people in our dreams are actually a reflection of our own different aspects of Self. What were the other people like? Were they indifferent, occupied with their own lives, curious, friendly yet clueless to your predicament, or did they perhaps seem like they had it "all together" more than you felt you yourself did? How they acted in your dream is a clue as to how you actually feel about this situation.

The plane was delayed...since a plane is symbolic of spiritual awareness, this suggests that the lesson is delayed, probably so you could gather your resources and be more ready.

This is the type of dream I would expect someone to have who was relocated into a new school or job suddenly, or thrown into a new set of circumstances that they weren't prepared to handle just yet. It could also be something planned, but which ended up being a lot more complex than originally anticipated.

Does this seem to strike a chord of truth in you, on what your dream may have been about? Some key points may seem to fit your situation more than others, or it may be something entirely different, which would point towards a more personal meaning for the dream symbols. For instance, if a child had a frightening experience being beaten with a shoe, this dream would possibly have a different slant.

Now for my usual disclaimer....please take any interpretations as suggestions to sift through and "try on for size," and only keep what seems to "fit" in your situation. If it feels true to you, go with your intuition. If it doesn't feel true, or off-kilter in some way, then explore further for answers that do seem to fit. It might take several re-readings to understand the concept of this interpretation, so just let it sink in. My interpretation isn't meant to be therapy or professional advice, but I sure hope it helped!

Please let me know what your thoughts are on the interpretation. I appreciate your feedback.

Thanks, "Shoeless"...I hope you enjoyed your interpretation, and that I was able to help shed some light on this mysterious recurring dream you've had.
