Returning topic - anyone could help me?

I have had a returning topic in my dreams for years. Not too often comes up but I am more and more curious about it.

The topic is that I am going to an exam. I have not prepared for it. I am also late. I feel bad.

(I was attending the university and finished it successfully long years ago. For about 10 years I have not studied anything in a course/school so I have not had any exams. I have not worked for 8 years approx. so not even work interviews...)

In these dreams I am on my way to my exam and I am normally late (maybe always).

Last night was the first time that I did arrive there. It seemed to be like a maths exam but at least a subject with calculations.

I was late. Everyone else was already there, sitting and looking at their papers. I went to a desk and chair, and looked into the questions. The exam questionnaire was like a book with many pages. I read the first question and I thought it is quite an easy one but I did not know the answer. 

(I saw the exact numbers and question and it was not like maths in our life, it was interesting... I asked someone around me, she told me the answer and it did not sound logical at all but I knew that was the good answer)

I felt bad because I should be one of the clever ones - even: I am clever - and I do not know the answers... (that was in the dream, but in my life I was always good enough in learning, too)

I felt confused and I thought why I am here if I can not write anything on the papers... So I was thinking about leaving.

I was even talking loudly to the person sitting next to me. 

I was upset that we had X time for dealing with the exam and I said loudly: I can not even read the whole book during this time.

I thought, I'd ask you guys, if you have any good idea about this.

I was thinking some time earlier, if it can mean that I need to study something in my life to be prepared or just be clever (or more clever in certain area)... Or am I trying to question my own skills in any way?

Thank you for your input.

Lots of love and light,

Mariann

  • I would always ask myself what is going on in my life at the moment and where this dream

     metapor could be useful.  It can only mean something to you.  Are you in school?  Is there a new job?  Is someone making you feel less then competent?  Are you questioning yourself on a certain subject you might be dealing with now?  These help to see what your dreams could be telling you.  Would love to help.

     

    love to dream,

  • No problem! I wasn't sure about exams, and I had to look through quite a few sites until I found an explanation that really felt right, and I had almost given up and was going to respond with what I figured it might be. Then I found this and it seemed to be the right answer to your question. :) 

    I'm happy it helped!!


    Lots of love!

    Thank you, Davy! That is really about my dream ;) To be honest, I have not tried to look on the net - I wanted to be personal. I thought I could find only generalised and silly explanations. :D

    Thanks again.
