I'll take a stab at this for you. May help motivate you to start
paying more attention to yourself. You are trying to tell yourself
something here, and it seems important. As you first begin the
process of analyzing, it helps to have some input. Here's what I see:
All of the people in your dream are aspects of your psyche, both the
people that you know as well as the ones you do not know. Your
friend and your fiance in your dream represent aspects of yourself
that you see (subconsciously) reflected in them in waking life. "You"
in your dreams is your "ego self", the way you perceive yourself in
waking life as well as the way YOU consciously think you are. This is
not necessarily the same way that your subconscious sees you. Nor is
it the way you have the potential to be. With this in mind, see if
what I have to say makes any sense to you.
I see you sitting and watching throughout your dream, not actually
participating. (What are you watching in life and not participating
in?) You are "centered" on the girl wearing the white shirt. White
signifies pure innocence, peace, happiness, joy, seen further
reflected in her sheer sleeves flowing in the breeze. (Do you know
this girl or not?) Notice that you are the only one not wearing
white. Why are you not wearing white? The lil kid has his shoes
off. Children can symbolize vulnerability and innocence. Shoes are
a foundation of sorts. What is up with your vulnerability or
innocence, and what has happened to your foundation? Feet are
symbolic of direction. I notice that his feet are not going
anywhere. He seems to be sort of nudging you. Has your direction in
your life changed in any way, or have you lost sight of it? Why are
you being nudged by this little fellow? You have also attended a
speech. Is this a lecture? Maybe some teaching going on? Could be
some opportunities opening up that you're not paying attention to.
The phone call that your friend makes is a way of communicating,
maybe a call to your own intuition.
I would be interested to know if this helped in any way. You do not
necessarily need to spill details, but I see a lot of opportunity
here. I would also be curious to know what YOUR emotions were in the
dream. That's very important to interpretation.
- Man, if this was my dream I would have bought that explanation...I
hope I remember more dreams so I can have YOU interpret them, Ashley!!

If you're serious, I'm very flattered and I thank you for that
compliment! I'm aware of how you feel about interpreting other
people's dreams, and I respect your position on that issue. I love
the puzzle involved in a dream, and I have a passion for the
interpretation. I am a devout follower of Carl Jung as I feel his
theories make more sense. Freud just got on my nerves with his
blanket explanations of everything being sexual or related to
our "incest wish". And if anyone reading this is a Freud follower,
please do not be offended. This is just my OWN opinion, and we all
know about opinions. It's just like anything else that one has an
opinion on. You may love Kielbasa (or however you spell it), but I
hate it. That doesn't mean you're wrong in loving it, nor does it
mean I'm right in hating it. It's just our individual opinions. But
I got FAR away from my point. Jung believed in the collective
unconscious, and after my experience with my own dreams and helping
friends and family with theirs, I have come to believe in it also.
Therefore, I believe that there is a certain amount of interpretation
that is universal and can be seen whether you know someone or not,
but the individual details and meaning are particular to the dreamer
and CANNOT be seen by anyone else. You'll notice my position on that
by the amount of questions I put into my interpretation. You'll also
notice that I asked about her reaction to the interpretation because
if she does not get an "Ah-hah" feeling, then I was WAY off base!
Wow! This early in the morning and I had that much to say! Sorry.
I didn't mean to bore you.
- I, too, feel it's important to ask question when interpreting
dreams...often just a simple one will trigger a memory that helps the
dreamer make sense of it all...
You know, I have just read a little of Jung...I just can't get
through dream psychology books like that...I just sort of 'do' it. I
think that using a little of 'this' with a little of 'that' mixed
with some of the 'other thing' usually helps create an overall view
of the theme of the dream.
Yeah, it's too early ... I have to go to work now, (boo!).
