“It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It's my partner.” —Jonas Salk

Dear Dream Zone, My brother and I have had a pretty bad falling out. Last night I had a dream that I put my house up for sale and bought my brother's old house. While packing to move, I asked my husband “Why are we doing this? I love this house and the house we bought is old and I'm not going to like it. So why are we moving?” —Tina 48, Tracy, CA Lauri: This dream is not about your house nor your brother's house at all. Houses in dreams symbolize the self, the dwelling place of the soul, your state of mind. So look at your house and your brother's house as both of your minds. Moving into your brother's old house is your dream telling you to try to get inside your brother’s mind and understand where he is coming from. It may be that you wish you could have that old brother (from when he lived in that house) back. Maybe YOU should be the hero here and be the one to "make the move" to get things back to how they used to be ... even though—as you said in the dream—"I'm not going to like it."

Tina replies: I usually am the one who reaches out when we fight. I sincerely appreciate your thoughts and comments and will try to do the right thing and follow the guidance this dream has given me.

Fascinating Dream Fact: Ever wake up with a buzzing or ringing in your ears? During R.E.M. sleep, which is when we dream, the Hammer and Stirrup bones in the ear, actually vibrate, which contributes to our ability to hear what's going on in our dreams. Sometimes, this vibration continues for a bit after waking and produces "random" noise. It might sound like "footsteps" or "laughter" or even an "evil chuckle!!" Yikes!
