How to interpret your (appliance) dreams
April 20th, 2012
After months of writing about appliance news, events, quips and quirks it’s no wonder I have the odd appliance dream.
The washing machine is yet to chase me down the road but there have been cases of the ‘too traumatic to untangle vacuum hose‘ and ‘the never ending wet washing basket‘ to make me wonder: is my subconscious saying I shouldn’t vacuum any more (please, let it be so), and, is it time to invest in a dryer?
What do these subliminal signals mean? How do I interpret these dreams…and what about you? Ever had a recurring burnt toast nightmare?
And so…to the internet!
Ah, your life sucks. Nah just kidding!
Vacuum dreams can be interpreted two ways: that there is a vacuum, as in a space in your life; or the cleaning version.
The former might suggest a lack of substance, an emptiness, perhaps loneliness. The latter means a loss of control, of feeling sucked up by some problem, but that you’re keeping up appearances!
Or look at this way, it’s time to stop freaking out, putting off the unavoidable, and clean up your act!
It can also mean that it’s time to put an idea or a plan on hold, on ice. Or, perhaps you have accomplished something that your subconscious was seeking, so now you can chill out.
Stove tops and cooking dreams…
Cooking and food prep is all about physical, emotional, mental and spiritual nourishment and inspiration.
It incites ideas of motherly love, nurturing, devotion and family as well as creativity and the process of a project.
Time for a fresh start? Washing machine dreams can suggest that it’s time for reaching closure, reparation and then releasing, so we can start over.
Perhaps it’s the reparation of a relationship, or making amends for negative actions. So ‘cleaning up after yourself’ is about taking responsibility and accepting the consequences.
If the ‘washing machine’ is broken, take your head out and fix it.
Air conditioner dreams…
Are about control in your life, your environment and your atmosphere.
Is life feeling stuffy? Suffering suffocation? It’s time to let some fresh air in for big breaths, sustenance, survival and energy.
It may also be about expectations, when there are none, there is only air.
Hello, the mundane life of a kettle. Or, are you taking things for granted?
A kettle of boiling water also means a lot of hard work ahead and if it’s whistling then there’s a good chance you’ve reached boiling point and whatever is bugging you needs to be sorted out, before it boils over.
We can’t seem to go wrong with barbeques, when we’re awake they are a great time and even in our dreams they represent togetherness, relaxation and ease.
