Dream Zone: Out of PepperWritten by Lauri Loewenberg | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Last night I had a dream I was taking a shower, then I walked downstairs and my grandmother (who died in 2002) was really upset because we had ran out of pepper. I began to look for the pepper in the kitchen, but my grandma was right that we were out. She was really upset about it! I told her I’d drive her to the store to get some. I ran up to my room to get the keys and there was a moth flying around. I tried killing it numerous times, but kept missing. I finally smashed it with a shoe and I felt relieved. Then I woke up.

Lauri: Lots of endings in this dream. Is there anything in your life that has run its course, that has ended or that you have cleansed yourself of? The grandmother may mean some situation has really gotten old and the lack of pepper may mean something – perhaps a relationship – has lost its spice and excitement. The moth may be your attraction to someone or something, but the attraction turned into a nuisance and your dream is showing you did the right thing by putting an end to it.
Adam replies: There is a guy I used to work with that I have been intensely attracted to for a long time. After my good-bye party at work I told him how I felt. Unfortunately, he only liked me as a friend. Therefore, that attraction grew old and lost its spice and excitement. So I decided to cut off all ties with him. I deleted him off my facebook and out of my phone so I wouldn’t be tempted to reach out to him. I’ve been feeling a lot better. I’ve been going out, meeting new people, and have a lot to look forward to now.
