  1. i dreamt that my ex husband had long braids on in twisting style in wine colour, and said to myself in dream that he did my style and the my colour type that i normally do in weaken life.

  2. My very vivid dream last night:

    I was soaking in the bathtub, my hair was wet and unbraided (it was long hair, longer than my current hair length). A man I know from work (someone I have only platonic admiration for) appeared and started braiding my hair, like into a French braid. What I remember most significantly was that he was braiding my hair with a lot of care and enjoyment.

    At first he was sitting outside of the bathtub, but then he needed to lean over the bathtub to reach better, and it was only then that i paid attention to the fact that he was naked. I was very concerned with averting my eyes from his private area so as not to transgress the sexual line, but i did see his pubic hair in my peripheral vision. And then i started worrying about whether this was right or weird… but neither of us were involved sexually at all and seemed to pretend to not notice we were naked.

    When a dream sticks in my mind like that, i think there is meaning to it. I really dont think there is any sexual meaning to it though… the guy is happily married with kids and i have no romantic feelings for him whatsoever. I do wonder what this all means though.

  3. I had a dream last night that I had entered an old barn and found multiple braids of dark hair on a nail. I immendiately had a feeling of young indians on horses riding into the barn and placing their cut braids on this nail. I’m not indian and have no radical spiritual feelings but do find this dream very interesting.

  4. I found a cut braid in a bag. I did not have the impression that it was beautiful, it was just someone’s dark braid in… when I think twice, in MY bag. In mu culture there is a superstition that a curse can be cast with leaving hair, so this appeared in my dream, I got scared that someone had cursed me. What is more, I had the impression in my dream that somebody had been stealing from my bag.
