Dream from the mailbag: 

hiya i feels a bit wierd to tell a stranger about my dream but im going to give it a shot.
I dreamed I was with my bf smoking pipes and mushrooms lol (please this is not something i usually do, in fact, i never did before) he was sitting behind me, his arms are around my waist, i remember i feel very relaxed and happy when i was smoking the pipe, then he started to kiss me gently on my cheek, neck and lips…i was totally enjoying it and then i woke up and thinking i wish that was true. btw we are living in two different countries and the long distance romance is so hard to deal with.

is it just one of these exotic dream or does it mean something else?

I do appreciate you trusting me with your dream. I’ll do my best for you. IMHO, if YOU think it might mean something more then it probably does. And because it is more interesting for me, I am going to go ahead and try to decode it as if it does, ok 😉

The first thing I’d like to mention is the contents of this dream must be very personal to you otherwise do you think there would be the same level of hesitation to share? So, my wild guess is that this dream is talking about intimate things that you don’t usually talk about in general. Something you might not be ready to share with the world…

I dreamed I was with my bf smoking pipes and mushrooms lol (please this is not something i usually do, in fact, i never did before)

Not my business if you do (wink wink)… so this has to do with the feelings you have about your bf.

Mushrooms are a symbol of male energy because of their phallic shape. In China, the mushroom symbolizes long life, happiness and rebirth. Mushrooms are the food of the Taoist immortals. In China, it’s believed the mushroom will only grow in peaceful times, thus it is a symbol of successful government. Some African and Siberian tribes regard mushrooms as symbolic of the human soul, In Mexico, the sacred mushroom signifies knowledge and enlightenment. Some Western myths show fairies and elves sitting on mushrooms and toadstools. [1]

And I think we would all agree, that smoking pipes share similar symbolism. My thinking, after hearing that he is away, you are just processing feelings of deep longing in a symbolic way. Maybe intimate long distance dalliances…

he was sitting behind me, his arms are around my waist, i remember i feel very relaxed and happy when i was smoking the pipe, then he started to kiss me gently on my cheek, neck and lips…

Behind you, not in front of you; in front of you are pipes and mushrooms to smoke; symbols, not only of male, but also of hallucinogens and perspective changers; smoke–partaking or indulging, but only temporarily. Only partially whole and easily dissipates, lasting only as long as you are smoking. In other words, the moments you spend together are great but they are only temporary and last a short time…

His arms around your waist, to me, means he has a hold on you and maybe your actions. The waist is where the solar-plexus chakra is and the place of personal power. So from behind, he has his hold on you. You seem to be happy and relaxed while you are imagining your time together. The kissing, first on the cheek makes me think that this started first with just kidding about things, joking about them, then on to the neck (sticking your neck out) and then lips (words, talking about acting on something). There is a natural progression happening here, either real or desired.

i was totally enjoying it and then i woke up and thinking i wish that was true. btw we are living in two different countries and the long distance romance is so hard to deal with.

I can’t help but notice that you choose to use the little ‘i’ when typing. Could be a texting habit, but I did wonder if there might be some hidden meaning in there too, like perhaps you don’t feel like you have control or say in how things work, you are overpowered sort of or, incapacitated by this relationship. He has a way of working magic with you, putting you at ease but also takes control, so you feel less in control. The romantic in me wants to say that this dream is about your love for this guy, unactionable emotions or urges, with the bottom line being you want to move forward in a the logical progression here. Might you secretly want things to be permanent, like marriage? On the other hand, this could be symbolic expression of what has been, up until this point, more like a fantasy or a pipe dream rather than the real, tangible relationship you so desire.

Hope some of this rings true, good luck to you both and thanks again for sharing. – DD

  1. OMG what you say is fascinating!!!
    Ok here is something I have not shared with you. I met him on holiday and it did start from just a fling but strangely we had the strong feelings towards each other so we kept in touch even when we are apart. We only met in June and we met again in Aug for a few days together, the rest of the time, we only can be in touch with phone calls and Skype. He is 14 years younger than me and we had a lot of resistance from friends and family, particularly my family. But we stay with our feelings and we told each other we have to have faith. So I guess I constantly have my feelings fighting with my minds and try to do the right thing for both of us. He asked me to marry him last Monday over the phone and I said yes. He asked me to have wedding in next June and I said yes again. I think you are right about he had got power over me. And I am in a way incapable to say no to him at all.
    When I had the dream, I thought it was just a sign of me longing for the togetherness, but I wondered whether there were something else deep down. Dream about pipe and mushroom I thought was because these are common things in where we met but I never tried. Perhaps I wanted to try but then I didn’t understand why these two things appeared when I was dreaming about him. Also the dream was set in a regga bar where we spent time together when we met, but not as bf gf, we were just friends then.
    I think I am looking for some interpretations of my deep subconscious feelings and try to understand why I’m falling for him and whether I should pursue this feelings regardless what society and my mind is telling me.

    • Thanks so much for your feedback! Means a lot! Your own interpretations are the key, really. I can only read into what you give me. You have the history of being you and seeing what you do, feeling and understanding how you do. So the elements and surroundings of your dream are painted that way for you by another part of you and I suspect, to answer some question, address some thought or feelings that need to be addressed or simply pondered more thoughtfully. I operate under the assumption that the subconscious part of our mind uses dreams to communicate. Always. So the work is finding out what is being explained and then go about picking it apart this deeply rich symbolism to get to the story problem or the heart of the matter and then the answer. You said that the dream left a lingering feeling, a desire to be with your bf. Might I suggest finding time to sit by yourself and really think about what you want. You don’t have to know right away, but just ask and then sit there and observe what comes in. Ponder. Wonder. Explore the idea and then pay attention to how it feels in your body when you think or speak about it. And I wouldn’t worry too much about what people say, they don’t live life as you. You can do what I do, thank them for their loving counsel and then do what feels right. Live the life YOU want to live. What do you really want? You can create whatever it is. Just decide and then move in that direction.

  2. And btw little i is my typo cos I was typing on iPhone and sometimes the auto correction doesn’t work that well. 🙂
