SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE ERASED
I have been dreaming of my ex-girlfriend for the last several months; she is always trying to tell me something and is quite persistent. I recently dreamed my vehicle broke down. Her company had a truck that towed me to an old office building. She was inside with a dog that kept licking my face. She was writing on an eraser board trying to communicate with me but she was writing in code so I had no clue what she was trying to tell me. Please decode this dream.

Writing something that can be erased is impermanent; as such, it can always be changed. In this view, your unconscious wants to kick-start your relationship again much in the same way your towed, broken-down vehicle needs to be kick-started. The wish of the dream is to communicate with your ex but the wish is conflicted to the extent that you may not want to hear what she has to say.

SHE WANTS EVERYTHING TO GO SWIMMINGLY
I dreamed I was house-sitting for my mother and stepfather while they went on a trip. Shortly after they left, I ran on their treadmill. When I got bored, I turned on the faucet, filled the entire house with water and swam through it with little physical restrictions like I was a fish. I was having such fun until my mom opened the door. They’d forgotten something at the house and returned to get it. They saw the house was filled with water and were angry. What does this mean?

In that houses represent one’s sense of self, watching a house reveals the need to watch over yourself. Turning on the faucet symbolizes the need for release, to let something flow, to open the floodgates, as it were. Whereas refashioning the house into a pool reveals the wish for transformation and the wish to be cleansed, a run on the treadmill underscores the realization of not getting anywhere. You may be bored with your lifestyle at this moment in time.
