The dreamer is dealing with old friends that don’t like her anymore and are speaking behind her back. She thought she could just let go of old issues, but they are too bitter and sensitive to think the same.
I had a very peculiar dream last night that I could use some help with understanding. I went into our laundry room at the back of the house and the wash basket was in the middle of the room. I thought this was strange and when I looked more closely I saw that there was 2 of my boyfriend’s hoodies in it and they were thick with mud. I lifted one out first then the other. When I looked in the basket I saw lots of large potatoes with huge stalks growing out of them. These were thick with mud also. Suddenly a beetle the size of a golf ball scuttled out of the basket followed by an equally large ladybug. The ladybug jumped on top of the beetle and as they moved across the floor it looked as though they were mating… Or fighting I can’t be sure of which but I got the impression that they weren’t happy with one another. Very strange. Then the beetle somehow overcame the ladybug and got on top of the ladybug’s back.They made their way towards the window. They parted and I was watching them in fear, crawling around on the window. I started to scream and slammed the door behind me, in an attempt to lock them in.
I ran through the kitchen looking for my boyfriend. When I saw him, I asked him to get them out of the room but he refused. Telling me to get a grip. I was terribly upset but I knew I had to do something to get them out so I went back in and qucikly flung the window open. I saw the ladybug fly out. I left the room for several minutes and when I came back I couldn’t see the beetle so I assumed it was gone too.
For some reason I closed the window and sat down directly in front of it. I’m not sure what I was doing while sitting there but I could hear a buzzing and turned to see the beetle flying around behind me. I freaked out but I think I open the window again and it left. But I can’t be certain. Can somebody please help me figure this out… I can’t stop thinking about it.
The dream is reflecting your feelings about these spoiled friendships.
The laundry scene with the muddy hoodies reflects the problems with these relationships that you want to get rid of. The hoodies themselves reflect your personality wanting to not care about anything or being totally casual about anything that has happened. The mud on them is the problems that you feel have spoiled your ability to relax with these friends and easily socialize.
The beetle in the dream symbolizes your feelings about your friendship being compromised by what has happened. The ladybug symbolizes your feelings of being annoyed having to be responsible while your friend casually speaks behind your back.
The whole dream is a story metaphor describing your experience with the friends being difficult and then your annoyance with what they said. At the end of the dream it’s reflecting your attempt to put this issue to rest or try to forget what they said about you. Your trouble getting the bugs out the window perfectly reflects this. You’re symbolically having difficulty getting the problem out of your head.
I’d take the dream as a sign that you are just having difficulty accepting them not liking you or turning on you. My advice is to just tell yourself that some people are simply impossible and have emotional issues that aren’t your concern.
