Dreaming of Trains & Kidnapped Babies
Last night I dreamt that I was sharing a train car with a European family. It was a NYC-subway-like train car and I don't know where we were going.
Apparently I had a newborn son (specifically a son) and he was traveling with me. Somewhere during the journey I allowed the European family to hold or watch the baby and they kidnapped him.
Here began the frantic search for the baby (which was definitely mine because I was in a maternal rage). Friends and family became involved in the search that led to a large indoor playground of sorts - kind of warehousey - where I found the baby tucked away next to the European mother who was lying on a makeshift bed on the floor. The picture of this baby was very vivid. He eyes were open and he was wrapped in a blue blanket.
I remember an acute sense of relief, and then intense anger. I began screaming at the European mother and woke up right as I was about to beat the shit of out her.
To dream that you are on a train, symbolizes your life's journey. It suggests that you are on the right track in life and headed in the right direction. Alternatively, you have a tendency to worry needlessly over a situation that will prove to work out in the end.
To see a baby in your dream, signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies symbolize something in your own inner nature that is pure, vulnerable, helpless and/or uncorrupted.
To dream that someone has been kidnapped, indicates that you are not letting aspects and characteristics of that person be expressed within you. You are trying to contain and/or suppress those qualities of the kidnapped person.
To dream that you are searching for something, signifies the need to find something that is missing or needed in your life. You may be searching for love, spiritual enlightenment, peace or even a solution to a problem.
To dream that you find someone, indicates that you are identifying new facets of a relationship. You may be taking the relationship to a new level and/or direction
To see a foreigner in your dream, represents an aspect of yourself that is unfamiliar or strange to you. You may be neglecting or ignoring some important feelings or talents.
To dream that you or someone is yelling, represents repressed anger that need to be expressed.
