"Bonnie Lass's" Dream:

dream: "I was lying naked in bed when I looked over the other side of the room and saw a tiny mouse. I then looked down at my feet and could see about seven tiny grey mice nibbling away at my feet. I was terrified. I then put my foot on the ground and the mice eventually got off my foot. That is all I can remember about my dream last night. I hope you can make something out of it."

"Bonnie Lass's" Dream Interpretation:

Being NAKED in a dream symbolizes feeling either exposed and vulnerable or not hiding anything. In the context of this dream, it would seem that you feel vulnerable for some reason. Hopefully after reading this interpretation you will be able to get to the bottom of it and make headway.

A BED symbolizes the bridge between the conscious and unconscious mind...between our waking life and our spiritual life. It can also be metaphorically symbolic for sayings such as "You make your own bed, now lie in it."

FEET are symbolic of our ability & readiness to proverbially walk our life's path. To have rodents gnawing away at your feet would then seem to symbolize some kind of problem(s) that are "eating" you and trying to trip you up. These problems can be overcome, and their ability to stop you is only as strong as your fear that lets them pull off the illusion that you are helpless and weak. The color GREY symbolizes fear, especially of the grey areas of life that are unknown to us. A conscious effort made on your part to refuse to let fear hold you back will be effective once you realize your own abilities and strength. I think the mice possibly hold another symbol for you as a metaphor for the quote: "the best laid plans of mice or men". Have things not been turning out the way you have planned, lately? I guess that could be said of all of us, but if this is a specifically trying time in your life, then this dream probably symbolizes that strife.

Another key symbol is that you saw 8 mice, but specifically mentioned the number seven. SEVEN is symbolic of the cycle of beginning and ending. Seven is mentioned many times in the Bible, for instance...the world was created in 7 days; 7th heaven, etc. It's a time of great changes, death of the old to make way for the new. That can be quite frightening unless you are able to prepare yourself, and learning what your dreams mean is a great start!

Since there were 8 mice in all, I'll mention that the symbolism for 8 is infinity. I have seen 8 used in the context of dreams mostly when it symbolizes a life lesson that is important for one to accomplish, and seems to span eternity via stubborness, avoidance and fear. In other words, due to free will we can try to avoid a life's lesson over & over again, but eventually it will be inevitable and we must learn it in order to progress spiritually. We are spiritual beings living a physical life for a purpose, but we tend to forget that and think our physical body is all that we are. The longer a lesson is avoided, the more complicated and uncomfortable it becomes until we finally have no choice but to learn it for our higher purpose in life. When we learn to let go of our fears and take the proverbial "Leap of Faith," we are able to transform and leave the fear behind us so it doesn't make us prisoners of our own device.

Notice that when you got your feet back on the ground, the mice eventually left. I take this as a symbol that you are more grounded than you may realize, and therefore able to accomplish more than your fears may lead you to believe. Another slant could be a suggestion that if you become more grounded, your fears will subside.

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!

Ultimately, each individual dreamer must decide what their own dreams mean. Please do not take anyone's word as "gospel" if it doesn't feel right to you, whether they have a PH.D or all the experience and fancy titles in the world. If it doesn't hit the mark for *you*, then it's not for you. You'll know.

Thank you,
