what an interesting dream!
i'm going to do my best to interpret this as if i was having this dream. take whatever seems to stand out to you.
well it seems that you're already pretty settled with the idea of running away. but running away can result in the death of some things. the pregnant woman who called you "mum" perhaps that is a "pregnant" budding thought of leaving your boyfriend? she is anxious and unsure, and asks a question. But you reassure yourself, saying “You won’t die, I won’t let you. When you wake up, I’ll be here for you.” you may need to give that thought life. but remember the birthing process is painful, yet beautiful. at that point in your dream you run away from this "death" that seems to be very eminent. and you even sort of enjoy it. it's much easier avoiding a painful decision such as that, right?
dream II: you are running from the death of "something." you know that you are not at "fault," yet you still need to get away from it. it's starting to sound more and more like your subconscious has already made up it is mind. you find transportation, a means to get away and notice students having fun-- smoking. “wow they really don’t have anything to worry about. All safe at home, not having to hide,” subconsciously you desire to for that lift-- and what exactly are you hiding again? hmmmmmm? are you just trying to get away and hide from what you're hiding with smoking??? or is it about time you come out of hiding and get away and have some fun? or both?
i've noticed when teachers are involved with my dreams that they are usually pointing you in a certain direction. to me, your drum teacher seems to be pointing you towards "life"/ your birthday after the "death" you seem to have experienced. your birthday is also something to look forward to. literally. look forward.
dream III: this one is a bit harder to discern, there are a lot of symbols in this one, but i'll git a swing.
here's what i'm understanding.
you're trying to get to room 24. 2+4=6. basically at this point in your life you're at a bit of a crossroads having to decide what to do with you relationship. you are at a middle point-- a 5 in numerology. the next number that obviously comes next in line is 6. but for some reason you walk into room 26, thinking it's 24. 2+6=8. 8 for me has been sort of like.... you've made your choice, there's no turning back, so things have begun to be set in motion. it's not a 9 because things haven't been killed or cut away, and it's not a 10 because nothing is dead yet, but shall we say, it's the beginning of the end. after making a decision, you may want to go back, but things are set in motion and why would you want to go in there when things are no longer worth cleaning out? perhaps you need to "clean up" your past mess before you move onto your next number/step? your subconscious apparently thinks you don't need to. it may take care of itself. but dirty rooms don't clean themselves. then again it isn't YOUR room. you accidently stumbled upon that one.
so you go to the correct room and it's big and beautiful and wonderful and clean, you have options, the doors are open for you, you're meeting new people at school, making new friends. there is already someone tidying your new space for you, and you do a bit to help get it settled. think in reality-- there is already someone waiting for you, a new friend, or lover perhaps, you just need to make the arrangements. and here we get to the hard part.
a tiger on top of taller animals in the jungle killing lions with large black pointy sticks. in an illustrated story. you felt it was grim, but possibly useful.
well, this seems to be going along the lines with the whole death and dying thing. it seems you've made it to college but you haven't quite killed off the beast yet. you can still go on with life as is with your boyfriend, attending college still in a relationship, but imagine the how much more free you may feel entering your next level of education with a clear mind.
killing a lion seems pretttty daunting. even if you have the upperhand by being on top of the other jungle animals. in the rider waite tarot deck, the card seven of wands came to my mind. it is a picture of a man with a staff-- almost like your pointy sticks, trying to fend off six staffs below him. he has the vantage point because he can see his attackers, what their moves are going to be, and he can make his attack with thought from above. your dream self seems to be okay that you received no reply from your mother or boyfriend. there is a part of you that has already approved of both their absence. you are moving away from your mother as well, right?
in their absence, you will make more friends, once you clear things out, life will bring you more to fill in the void, if you are ready. the girl could be the new you or friend that you will begin to get to know as you lead your new life...
a dog follows you and the new friend as you're walking back to your new home. dogs are usually very important "messengers of the underworld" in dreams. a lot of my dreams with dogs have been warning signs, not necessarily of impending doom or anything, but to keep a close eye on the rhythms and changes going on in life. this is your dog, your choice. it is following you. you are the owner. your subconcious has already seemingly determined your loss. you may loose your chance to make your decision. you may have to go to school to make your final decision. the owner(you) of this dog/choice might be upset at finding this dog/choice while at the student hall/your new home/ new stage in your life.
your subconscious self is still happy though, because it knows you will make the right decision for your future.
you are waking up to the longing for the freedom and release of running away, beginning your new life, without any restrictive ties. you obviously have that on your mind, and it seems to be calling you.
three is important.
past: dream I: you see your choice.
present: dream II: you acknowledge your choice.
future: dream III: you let go of your choice.
allow yourself to be freed.
much love, le papillon.
