Interesting dreams - First dream -
You thought it was the end of the road, but it was merely a bit of a detour
Small green house covered in thorns - buildings can represent self - is there prickliness to your demeaner lately? - does part of you want to keep people out?
Garage is growing - garages are for vehicles and vehicles are for GOING - does part of you have a growing (plants covered) desire to GO?
Daughter (likely represents self) is unloading trunk - do you have something stored away inside that needs to be unloaded?
Camping equipment - again, is there somewhere that you want to go?
Caged animals - do you feel caged? Do you feel like you are deprived of something so essential to your nature (water) that you will die if you are not made free?
Wounded, hungry, unhealthy animals in need of care. What inside of you needs loving, nurturing, care and attention?
Rain is water - represents emotions. Being asleep - what are you not conscious of? Darkness - what are you not seeing? You felt the car "hit" something, but then you could not see anything there - what is the obstacle that you have run into that you are not seeing? - is it something from the past (shopping center from childhood)? What needs healing in the driver (you)?
These dreams seem to be asking you to pay attention and look deeply within.
