The best dreams are made of music

I dreamt I had dragged an antique phone booth into the middle of the desert and had some desert in it and wanted to use it as some kind of weird drinking water storage. I brought a hose and tried to fill it up with water and it just would not fill up, the water level finally rose and it was almost a quarter of the way full and the desert just absorbed it all and I saw the little cactus I had trapped inside the phone booth drown. 

Of course, the best dreams have soundtracks, and since I’ve been listening to Florence + The Machine on repeat, this part of Drumming song was stuck in my head:

“I run to the river and dive straight in
I pray that the water will drown out the din
But as the water fills my mouth
It couldn’t wash the echoes out
But as the water fills my mouth
It couldn’t wash the echoes out” 

Water is rebirth, evolution, cleansing. But I needed help figuring out the rest of it. 

Here is what the dream dictionary says: 


To dream that you are walking through a desert signifies loss and misfortune. You may be suffering from an attack on your reputation. Deserts are also symbolic of barrenness, loneliness and feelings of isolation and hopelessness. The desert landscape may also be a metaphor for feeling deserted and left behind.

To use a payphone in your dream represents a message or advice that comes with a price. It may also mean that your communication with others is having a toll on you in some way, either directly or indirectly.
To dream that the payphone is out of order indicates that you are being shut out. You are experiencing difficulties in getting your thoughts and feelings across. Or you are having difficulties connecting to others.

To see or hear a telephone in your dream signifies a message from your subconscious or some sort of telepathic communication. You may be forced to confront issues which you have been avoiding. Alternatively, the telephone represents your communication and relationship with others.

To see succulents in your dream refer to your thirst for knowledge or information. If the succulents are in bloom, then it means that your old thoughts and outdated beliefs are dying. You are letting go of your negative attitudes or resentment toward others.

To see a hose in your dream is symbolic of how you are directing and expressing your emotions. A hose represents renewal, rejuvenation and cleansing. You need to heal those emotional wounds so that you can continue to grow as a person. Alternatively, a hose may be a metaphor for sex and sexual gratification. Or it may be a pun that you are “getting hosed” or blindsided in some situation.

To see water in your dream symbolizes your subconscious and your emotional state of mind. Water is the living essence of the psyche and the flow of life energy. It is also symbolic of spirituality, knowledge, healing and refreshment.
