Hello Observationists, could one of you analyse this dream for me please? :)
I was sitting in the classroom I use for French at school and I had a book open and a blue pen in my hand. There were other students in the room but I didn't focus on any of them. I looked down at my exercise book, which looked suspiciously like the one I use for Japanese, and saw there were two tables printed on the page with French words at the top of each column that I didn't recognise, though I thought the activity had something to do with verbs (what we were learning before the holidays came). The table at the top of the page was partially filled out and I had the feeling that I was behind in the work. I tried to fill the rest of it out but I didn't understand what we had to do. I wrote in some things only to cross them out again. I started to panic (that best describes the feeling) because I dislike not knowing what to, especially when everyone else did. I looked up and noticed my best friend sittng next to me even though she doesn't go to my school. (In real life I'd just spent a couple of days in the holidays with her.) She noticed that I was having trouble and explained it to me but I still only had a vague idea of what to do. Someone spoke to me and I looked up to see my French teacher smiling and pointing at the whiteboard where a completed table was drawn but I knew it wasn't the one I was working on. She told me not to worry and that we'd sort it out next lesson and on cue the lesson ended just as I realised I'd been writing in blue pen when it should have been greylead pencil.
Meza of the Mystics :)
To dream that you are in a classroom indicates that you are learning an important life lesson. Alternatively, it symbolizes personal growth. You are learning something about yourself.
To see books in your dream indicate calmness. You are moving toward your goals at a slow and steady pace. Books also symbolize knowledge, intellect, information and wisdom. In particular, to see an open book in your dream, means that you are able to grasp new ideas with ease. If the book is closed, then it represents your allure and mysteriousness. Consider the type of book for additional clues. The dream may represent your calling into a specific field of work or an area that you need to devote more study to. Alternatively, the dream could be telling you not to judge a book by its cover.
To see a pen in your dream signifies self-expression and communication. Consider also the phrase of how the pen is mightier than the sword.
"I Failed The Test"
To dream that you are taking an exam, indicates that you are being put to the test or being scrutinized in some way. These dreams highlight some anxiety or agitation that you are experiencing in your waking life. In such dreams, you may find that you cannot answer any of the questions on the test, that the test is in some foreign language or that your pencil keeps breaking during the test. Perhaps time is running out and you cannot complete the exam in the allowed time. Or perhaps, you arrive late and miss the exam. These factors contribute to failing the dream test. These dreams usually have to do with your self-esteem and confidence or the lack of. You tend to believe in the worst about yourself and are often overly worried that you are not making the grade and measuring up to other people's expectations of you. You may also experience the fear of not being accepted, not being prepared, or not being good enough.
Test dreams also suggest that you are feeling unprepared for a challenge. Rarely, these dreams are about the actual content of the test, but rather it is more about the process and how you feel during the exam taking process. These feelings often parallel how you are actually feeling in a particular challenge or situation in your waking like.
Test dreams are also an indication that you are being judged. These dreams serve as a signal for you to examine an aspect of yourself that you may have been neglecting and need to pay more attention to. You may be harboring some guilt because you did not prepare enough for a school exam, meeting, business project, or some project. Most of the time, though, people who have such dreams are unlikely to fail a test in real life. This dream is rooted in the fear and anxiety that you may not meet other's standards. You are afraid to let others down.
To dream that you are in a panic indicates a lack of control and power in your life. You are feeling helpless in some situation or unable to make a clear decision. Calm down.
To see friends in your dream signify aspects of your personality that you have rejected, but are ready to incorporate and acknowledge. The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself. Alternatively, dreaming of a friend indicates positive news.
To see friends from your past in your dream points to your desire to reconnect with a part of yourself that you have lost touch with. Perhaps it is time to pick up that old hobby or put a long hidden talent to use. A more direct interpretation of this dream may simply mean that you should look this friend up and reconnect with them.
To see your teacher (past or present) in your dream suggests that you are seeking some advice, guidance, or knowledge. You are heading into a new path in life and are ready to learn by example or from a past experience. Consider your own personal experiences with that particular teacher. What subject was taught? Alternatively, a teacher relates to issues with authority and seeking approval. You may be going through a situation in your waking life where you feel that you are being treated like a student or in which you feel you are being put to a test. Also pay attention to the demeanor and attitude of the teacher in your dream. If the teacher in your dream is mean, then it implies that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself to succeed.
