Dream Interpretation: The Train

Last night, I had a dream that seemed almost like a TV show or movie.  It started off at a train station.  I met a guy there but he was on a different train, an earlier one than mine.  Before he got on his train, we had kissed.

After his train left, I had to board mine.  I felt that there was something strange about my train but I still boarded it.  I don’t know where we were going but I remember walking all the way to the back of the train for some strange reason.  Then we stopped while I was still in the back of the train, and everyone in the last two train cars had to get off.  Actually one group stayed near the train, while the other group, my group had to walk a bit of a distance away.  They made us do work or something.  It was like an old village.  At some point, someone needed headphones for something, so I went back to the train to ask someone for some.  Someone was nice enough to lend us his.  I went back to the guy who needed the headphones and handed the headphones to him.  That’s when I woke up.

Interpretation from dream moods dream dictionary:

Train Station:

Represents a transitional period in my life in which I need to take a short break and reassess my situation and determine my path and goals.


Since I kissed a stranger, it means that I acknowledge and accept the repressed aspect of myself.


Since I was on a train, that train symbolizes my life’s journey.  It can either mean I am on the right track or that I am needlessly worrying over a situation that will work out in the end.


Two because there were two trains, one that the stranger I kissed was on and one that I was on.  Also because it was the last two train cars, that had to get off and I happened to be in the last one when they asked us to get off.  The number two usually symbolizes balance, diversity, partnership, marriage, cooperation, soul, or receptivity.  The world is seen in dualities, like Yin and Yang.


Hmmm…according to dream moods, that if I was wearing the headphones that would mean that I was the only one getting the message and that I am in tune with my intuition.  Since I am not the one wearing it, I guess I’m not getting the message and not in tune with my gut feelings.

Putting it altogether:

My dream seems to mean that I am in a transitional period in my life but I am on the right path.  I am okay with my repressed self and that I shouldn’t worry so much.  I think I am trying to look for a balance between myself and my repressed self.  They are split up and I need to get them in sync.  I’m just missing the message and not following my instincts.
