What does it mean if I am frozen in a dream?

Asked by wundayatta (58625points) September 8th, 2012

So I saw myself being put in one of those mortuary drawers and I could feel my body freezing. There were all these voices coming at me from everywhere, telling me to do something, but I couldn’t understand what they were saying.

Then something started sawing off my limbs, but oddly, it didn’t bother me. I welcomed it. It felt freeing as each foot and hand was cut off. Except then they started to cut me off at the waist and for some reason this really freaked me out, but I woke up.

It’s a dream. I know it doesn’t mean anything, but if it did…?

Hmm. That wasn’t an autopsy you were describing. Have you pissed off your wife lately?

I’d sleep on the couch tonight (preferably in someone else’s house), and send flowers for the next week or two, just to be safe.

Hmm…maybe turn down the air conditioner? (Of course that doesn’t explain the rest of it…)

Did you leave a window open or did your blanket come off while you were sleeping? That might account for the cold. The amputations you’ll have to figure out for yourself. What do they make you think of?

You ate a spicy carne asada burrito after 9 PM before going to bed?

It means you are meant to write a novel about a man that was not really dead when he was stuffed in the drawer at the morgue. Along the lines of the movie ” Afterlife”. lol

The part about cutting off your limbs may mean that you should lose some weight. The frozen part means that you might consider Atkins Ice Cream diet.

You cant make a decision you are frozen, and in the process of decision making you see yourself loosing your very grounding, feet. But the relief you felt showed that this could be a good thing.

I have no idea! Maybe the medications.

Had your wife grabbed all of the blankets?

Your left side was sticking out of the blankets, which is why you got frozen.

But once they cut off your left arm and left leg, you will be all Right.

Dream Moods has this to say on one’s own death. (assuming, indeed, you were dead, this is what seems to be implicated based on where you were in the dream)

To dream of your own death indicates a transitional phase in your life. You are becoming more enlightened or spiritual. Alternatively, you are trying desperately to escape the demands of your daily life.

This isn’t the dreamer being frozen, but it’s what the site gave me;

To dream that something is frozen represents something that has been suppressed, rejected, or denied. It could represent something this is not fully developed. Alternatively, the dream may refer to your emotions and cold or bitter feelings. To dream that someone is frozen indicates your coldness toward that person or vice versa.

Dream Moods isn’t very clear what to do with the interpretations, besides not to take them too seriously, and that it’s mostly for fun.

Given the descriptions of the subject though, if we decide to get all serious and try to relate them…perhaps there is a change in your life, or a spiritual change that you dislike, dismiss and distrust. Perhaps it’s brought on by past memories and experiences. The sawing off of your members may signify your desire to escape this change, however, since it is in you, and is most likely quite important, the discomfort felt at having your lower section sawed off is a reminder that whatever this change is, it can’t be dealt by merely running away or denying it.

Alternatively, perhaps you’re sick of routine and daily life, and resent the idea that you cannot truly get away from it. Perhaps, you yourself being frozen indicates something about yourself that you truly despise and wish would go away, however, as noted by the discomfort of the waist sawing, this may never be entirely possible as it’s you.

The old part of you died and now you are emerging as an adult?
