Whereas light represents awareness and enlightenment, a disintegrating light represents a lack of awareness or insight.

SHE WILL NOT SHINE A LIGHT ON IT

I dreamed that I was at home trying to turn off a light bulb. As I did this, the light disintegrated and started a fire. I was blowing it out until it became a small flame. Please decode this dream.

— Billyn Tarplain, Manhattan, NY

Turning off a light reveals that repression is at work. There is something you do not wish to see or shine a light on at this moment in time. In this view, you need to direct attention away from some particular matter. Whereas light represents awareness and enlightenment, a disintegrating light represents a lack of awareness or insight. One understands a failed action as well, for the light is never entirely extinguished or blown out. The small flame of repressed material flickers on. In another view, an ardent desire cannot be fully squelched. SHE IS LEAFING THROUGH HER PAST

Your Dreams: Lauren Lawrence analyzes News readers' dreams

I dreamed I was at home in Ireland. I met my younger brother in a field. In reality, my brother died of lung cancer two years ago. There were lilac trees in the field. My brother put some green leaves in my hand, and said “I love you lilac.” What does this mean?

—Mary O’Connor, Ireland

Dreaming of the deceased reveals the wish to communicate and stay connected to the dead. In this view, the tree is the proverbial tree of life, rooted to the ground. It will stand. Who is to say that the soul of the leaf that falls is not the same one that grows back in another season, in another time to bloom? On some level, your brother is the tree; the lilac leaves are part of him. The leaves may also represent one who leaves, your brother’s dying. If so, he is making amends, returning the leaves of one who has left.
