Dreams Sponsored By The Letter U

U-turn: If you do a u-turn it indicates that you are altering the course of your life. You are changing directions and starting on a different path. It does not always mean it has been the right decision.

UFO: Signifies your desire to find your spiritual purpose in life. You also may be feeling alienated from those around you and need to be more grounded and come back to reality.

Umbilical Cord: Represents your lack of individuality. You may have anxieties about being on your own or supporting yourself. If you are cutting the umbilical cord that would indicate that you need to be self-sufficient and stand on your own two feet.

Umbrella: Suggests that you are putting up a shield against your emotions; you are trying to avoid dealing with them. Umbrellas are also a symbol of emotional security. If the umbrella is leaking then it indicates that you are unprepared to face the problems you have. If you cannot open your umbrella and it is raining then that suggests that you are open to confronting your own feelings and are willing to let your emotions come to the surface. If the umbrella becomes inside out then it is time to forget the illusion that you had any control.

Underwater: Suggests that you are feeling overcome with emotions and are in need of greater control of your life. You may be submerged in your emotions and don’t know how to resurface. It is a feeling of being completely overwhelmed. *artwork by Jane Ray

Unicorn: Symbolizes power, gentleness and purity. You have high ideals that walk hand in hand with amazing insight in your current situation.

Unicycle: Signifies that you have total control of a situation and are exercising authority in both personal and business matters.

Up: To dream of rising up suggests that you are emerging from some depressing or negative situation. You may be feeling high or euphoric. The dream may also compensate for your waking feelings of sadness.

Upside Down: Suggests that there is some situation or problem in your waking life that you need to straighten out. It may also indicate that your initial assumptions were completely opposite of what you originally thought.

Uranus: Represents originality, unconventional thinking, independence, freedom, and individualism. Indicative that something unexpected is about to happen.

Shelly said...

lakeviewer said...

Happy dreams, Renee. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Diana Evans said...

Hi Renee...this is so interesting...I love hearing about what things mean in our dreams....I have some neat dreams and want to remember them....but if I start working on something else in the morning I can't think of all the pieces in my dreams....I need to have a dream journal like my Mom used to...before my Dad got all scared of

Have a wonderful Monday....

That was a powerful post. Especially because the explanations escaped the usual terrain of semantic predictability I was expecting. You're full of surprises, you are. And I feel most grateful for those surprises. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

U is unusual and unique.
I hope you had a wonderful Mommy Day....

It's funny that you always post these dream interpretations on days that I actually remember my dreams. This is, as always, a wonderful post. I LOVE all the images you've selected for each thing.

I've had underwater dreams before, but always felt incredibly liberated by them. I'm a water-person through and through, and to not have to come to the surface to breath air--that would be wonderful.

The dreams I'm remembering now all have to do with babies--not mine, though that seems pretty irrelevant, since MY babies are at turning points in their lives, one about to go off to college, and another one failing classes in high school. It's a lot of stress, so much so that for the first time in months, I didn't even feel like making an Illustration Friday picture (though I think I will anyway).

Deborah said...

I have never had a dream in my life about any of these things! I have a reoccurring dream about my hubby tho...the poem about it is on my blog. Love all the picture. **blows kisses** Deborah

Pattee said...

I dream of being underwater... but I alway swim to the top and be grateful!

I love to read your letters (A,B,C) that you write about they are always so thought provoking...

Thanks for being my friend~

Anonymous said...

With my life the last few years, you'd think I'd be dreaming about U-turns every night. Or maybe getting caught in a traffic circle!

Ces said...

I think Uranus is beautiful.
Everything about you is beautiful.

Marion said...

Unbelievably enlightening! The only one I'm familiar with is "underwater" as I often dream of water---emotions.

Another fabulous, informative and beautiful post, Renee! Happy Monday! (((HUGS))) and Love from Louisiana!!

Ces said...

I had to come back here and take a double look at how I spelled the planet's name. Yep. I spelled it correctly. Only you will read it differently. Hardy-har-har! Pretty soon I will have to have an "Adult Content" warning on my blog.

Thinking of you sweetie!

Ces said...

I'm with Deborah. I have never dreamed about any of these things except maybe Uranus or was it the Moon?

deepazartz said...

Lovely pics Renee...How do you come up with such wonderful matter!!
Very sweet post!

Sarah said...

Ackkkkk underwater and upsidedown!!! No stress in my life!! How are ya hon! Think I'm feeling a bit better - thank you for your words! Love ya, Sarah

Lola said...

I don't know how you do it, but your dream interpretations are always so spot on. And the images too!

When I was younger I used to dream of being underwater in a frozen lake. I'd panic and try to swim up for air, but the surface was frozen solid. A nightmare more than a dream.

Lately I have totally stopped (rather am never able to remember) dreaming anymore in my sleep.

I compensate by daydreaming 24/7.

Ciao lovely

Manon Doyle said...

Great post Renee! I think I spend a lot of my time underwater trying to make it up for air! Come to think of it ..... I may be upside down!

Polly said...

dreaming of unicycle? I dream of bicycles sometimes but never of a unicycle, that's interesting...

the umbrella picture is beautiful!

A Cuban In London said...

Thanks, Renee, for your kind comment on my Road Songs (Nocturne) post just now. The ugly side of being dependent on video-sharing websites like youtube is that when clips go, you can't get them back. Still, the Cranberries, the Tori Amos and the Bill Withers are there. I hope you enjoyed them.

Greetings from London.

Lola said...

Wow, Renee thank you for the personalized analysis! I think my whole life the attempts made to express myself were being squashed. On all levels, actually.

Yes, how true! I believe my creativity is free now: I'M WRITING! And I love it, it fills me with completeness.
Finally, air again.

Thank you dear Renee, you rock.

PS: No news on the book publisher yet, but I'm optimistic.

Baino said...

Oooh I dream of UFO's, floating and being underwater . . .doesn't bode well eh?

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

I really enjoyed this post Renee! And I loved some of the illustrations and paintings, just beautiful and inspiring!

I always have the craziest craziest dreams, they are so BIZARRE! Lately, I keep dreaming of the world ending... ARGH! I wonder what that one means?

Sydney said...

I can't wait for X!

Every Photo Tells A Story said...

It would just make my "life" to dream about riding a Unicycle(lol)

Hope you had a great Mother's Day, Renee.

Love Nancy

Wendy said...

Interesting! It's fun to think what our dreams actually mean. What they are trying to tell us. Sometimes, though, my dreams are so weird, nobody could interpret them! LOL

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

7 cents? When did prices go up? I thought it was 2 cents! Hahaha

Cheque is in the mail love! xx

Bella Sinclair said...

Haha! Ces's comment.... :D That would be Uranus Expulsive, then, vs. Uranus Retentive.

What, isn't this the Beavis and Butthead show?

Love the Umbrella painting! Pink latex man on the unicycle may give me nightmares tonight, though.

Jeanne said...

I love the way you mix interesting info with beautiful artwork!

Delwyn said...

Hi Renee,
you are nearing the end of the alphabet - what then I wonder???
Happy days

YayaOrchid said...

Renee, hope you had a great Mother's Day and weekend. Here we are at the start of yet another week. Trodding along, plowing along.....what else can we do?

Hope you have a great week!

Bella Sinclair said...

Hello, Sweetness-with-an-Edge. How are you this evening?

The teacher gets the book at the end of school, which will be mid-June. I'm still in the process of piecing together the pages, actually. If she goes crazy, that will be ok. She said she's near retirement anyway.


Draffin Bears said...

Hi Renee,

You always have such lovely thought provoking posts.

I loved the umberella and the upside down girl.

Have a great week

studio lolo said...

wow, I really loved this group! All the definitions and images...splendid!

I love the huge size of the unicorn compared to the spritely girl who's not afraid, but enchanted by him. It's magical.
And I love the levitating "up" girl. Reminds me of Bella's sweet drawings :)

and Universally
Uppealing. (I had to spell it that way to work!)

U are doing a an Unreal job of this Un potentalised letter....

Caroline said...

As fascinating as ever, Renee! Only 5 letters to go - I must go back and read the earlier ones, as so far I've not seen one I dream about!

Lori ann said...

Dear Renee,

I am going to try to pay more attention to my dreams, usually i am just so tired i sleep deeply and don't remember anything.I've read that writing them down helps(the moment you wake)
it was so interesting to learn about the meaning of some dreams.
♥ lori

Prometheus said...

I love the feel of your page. All the pictures you use are really nice. I love the banner.

I think I can relate with the U turn the most..

Tessa said...

--------->flies in, puffing like a hippo and plonks self on floor with cup of freshly brewed espresso. Hello, darling girl, how have you been, did you have a lovely Mother's Day (I send you belated kisses in its honour), is the weather good to you, are you happy today, does your spirit soar? Whew, I've missed you.

Hehehe, Adam and his apple boner!

The delightful images inspire, Renee, and I especially love the one you choose for Mother's Day. Dreaming U is, as always, absolutely fascinating. Don't think I've dreamed any of them lately, but if I do in the future, I will remember how they should be interpreted.

Love you, sweetest lady, you are my inspiration this Tuesday morning.

jgy said...

Unique insights into U!
Please tell me if you have any for the letter J,
it was in my mind today!

Ces said...

Hello Darling!

Good morning. I need names. I just saw a comment from Mickey. So there's Mickey, Collette, Shelly... There's Angelique, Nadalene and Nathan and there's Jospephine. I want to make sure I acknowledge your immediate universe!

I went throught your blog yesterday and scrolled through the dreams but I was only able to backtrack to the Letter B. Where is the Letter A? Thanks.

Sue said...

I really enjoy these dream/letter posts! Interesting to try and remember one's own dreams and just where our subconscious is taking us.

Thanks so much Renee for posting these!


yoon see said...

Wow! Interesting post and illustration Renee.
Happy belated mother's day!

yoon see said...

Too bad I seldom dream, so I got to day dreaming instead:)

soulbrush said...

uterus, unicorn and umbrellas....upside down, ulna, and ushers. (what am I doing?)

BT said...

Some gorgeous artwork as usual Renee. I often dream I am flying. It's very strange and I am usually the only one able to do this.
