My late husband and I were riding in a truck and his daughter was in the back seat. We got stuck in muddy water and the murky water started to flow into the truck. I climbed out of my window and grabbed his daughter but my husband didn't make it out. He drowned. - Jennifer 43, Middletown, NY
Lauri: The truck represents your ability to carry a heavy emotional load, which is likely the passing of your husband, unless there is something else going on that is weighing heavy on you. Mud in dream represents depression, that which muddies up an otherwise clean psyche. The truck gets stuck because you must be feeling stuck in your depression. Do you often wonder if things will ever get easier to deal with? The good news in this dream is that you were able to get out through the window. The window represents your perspective, your outlook on things. Do you feel your outlook is beginning to change and that it is helping you get out of your depression? You got his daughter out too, which is a good indication that the two of you could be a team right now, each other's support system.
Jennifer replies: This is amazingly accurate. I’m amazed at how much of an emotional load I carry. I am stuck but am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a long bumpy emotional six years since he passed. Thank you.
