Dreaming of strangers asking to use your bathroom
August 12 2016 – Someone in my family narrated her dream. She dreamed a woman approached her to use the bathroom in her home. Then, this female stranger’s husband came along, and reprimanded her, for asking. He said, “Why are you asking to use another person’s toilet?” This man argued with his wife and the quarrel was fierce. Other people in the area grew afraid because of the intensity of the fight.

Dream analysis – The meaning of this dream is specific to the dreamer. She happens to be an introvert and is socially awkward with strangers. This dream put together two strangers who then increased the amount of social awkwardness by verbally fighting between the two of them. The intention of this dream is to inform the dreamer to be more open to diverse people with different opinions.

October 8 2016 – I dreamed there was a female human intruder in my home. My neighbors outside told me that a certain woman was inside my home. I searched for her. I found her hiding in a spare bedroom. She had black hair and was middle aged, around her late 30s to 40s. She was changing her clothes in the room and her top was removed. She had dark skin and could be from India. Her hair was not visible as she may have tied it into a bun on her head. I asked her to leave my home but she refused. I fought with her. I dragged her by her shirt and swung her around. She hit her head on the floor and skirting of the floor. I remembered that violence and assault were unlawful. I stopped swinging her around like a ball on a chain. I asked myself, how could I get her to leave my home? My two other family members were present, but they could not do anything.

Dream analysis – The symbol of an intruder in the home could mean the presence of intervention/ disturbance. For religious people who believe in the presence of negative energy/ evil, the symbol of the intruder represents spiritual trespassers. We can pray to God to defend us against the evils.

Dream of toilet in May 2019
My friend and I were inside someone’s office. We were waiting. I wasn’t sure what we were waiting for. Maybe it was about waiting for an interview. We sat on a couch to wait. Then I decided I had to use the toilet. I walked alone, along a dark corridor. There was a man who was also walking along this dark corridor. It leads to the male toilets and female toilets.

I entered the female toilets. It was so dark, I couldn’t even see the toilet bowl. I leaned forward to try to see where the w.c. bowl was. Then suddenly, my face was next to the toilet seat. I used the toilet in the dark. Then I walked out of the female toilets, in the dark. I managed to find my way along the dark corridor, back to the room where my friend was still seated on the couch. He was still waiting for his name to be called for his interview.

Dream analysis and interpretation
In real life, I was waiting for my friend to return from out-station. It had been 8 months and he was still held up.

The man in the dark corridor represents a stranger who had been stalking me. His attention was unwanted. He was suffering from psychological illness, physical illness and mental issues.

In my dream, the toilet was in darkness, which meant I was hampered by environmental conditions, like darkness/ evil/ threats.

After walking out of the toilet, I was still kept waiting in the room. I was not yet out of danger and had to wait for the next event. The entire dream was about waiting for some event to happen, waiting for the dark period to pass, and then waiting some more. The latent meaning of this dream is about patience in waiting.
