In a strange place, a beautiful room with a wall of windows, making out with my beloved, I realize loads of people are outside preparing for a celebration. A sports team is the reason, and everyone is showing their team spirit by donning blue. Walking through the courtyard preparations, I enter a building. There is an easel in the corner, and Clay is working on a project, a bicycle with paper components.. handlebars with wings and tires.. all made of paper. The rest is metal. Clay's face is painted in the most beautiful translucent, iridescent blue paint I had ever seen. I wanted to ask him where he got it, and if I could be painted. I leave with Adam and Taylor to take her to her house so she could get ready. I just got out of bed, so I looked a mess, but comfortable with my bed-head. We drive a ways out of town to her house, down a dirt road along a mountain, where the production crew had left a lot of rubbish by the road. Taylor is about to get ready and I realize the event will start in an hour. I become anxious as I need to prepare myself as well. I get a ride back with a taxi. Adam and another female sit with me in the back of the cab, missing its floorboard. A few steel beams are keeping the floor together as I can see the dirt road passing quickly beneath us. Back at the venue, I go back into the art building, where a few friends are gathered. Out of boredom, I begin levitating and then turn upside down and walk on the ceiling. Someone says, "Oh Ka, you know you're not supposed to be doing that." I keep on, then finally return my feet to the floor.
Later, I am in a friend's messy house picking up my feline friend. There are a few kittens in the living room and about 10 gray tabbies running around, all with injuries. One has a splint on his tail, one has a bandage on his head, and one has messed up ears. I feel very concerned and run to the back door and call for Sophie. She meows and jumps into my arms, relieved and shaking. She is wearing a red harness that her care takers put on her, to keep her identifiable from the other cats. As I begin to remove it, a crow lands on my arm and starts helping to untangle Sophie's back legs from the straps. The crow is missing his left eye. He was a very benevolent creature.
To dream that you are part of a team, indicates the importance of working together. The dream may be a metaphor that you have your life in order. If you are unhappy in the team, then it suggests that you are having issues in some area of your waking relationship. You may not be getting along with some work colleague or family member.
Mystics have always traditionally considered the feminine aspect of
the universe as a chest, a house or a wall, as well as an enclosed garden. Another
symbolic association is that which equates the house (and the above, related
forms) with the repository of all wisdom, that is, tradition itself (4). In architectural symbolism, on the other hand, the house carries not only an overall symbolism but also particular associations attached to each of its component parts.
Nevertheless, the house as a home arouses strong, spontaneous associations with
the human body and human thought (or life, in other words), as has been confirmed empirically by psychoanalysts. Ania Teillard explains this by pointing
out that, in dreams, we employ the image of the house as a representation of the
different layers of the psyche. The outside of the house signifies the outward
appearance of Man: his personality or his mask. The various floors are related to
the vertical and spatial symbols. The roof and upper floor correspond to the head
and the mind, as well as to the conscious exercise of self-control. Similarly, the
basement corresponds to the unconscious and the instincts (just as sewers do, in
symbols pertaining to the city). The kitchen, since this is where foodstuff is
transformed, sometimes signifies the place or the moment of psychic transmutation in the alchemical sense. The intercommunicating rooms speak for themselves. The stairs are the link between the various planes of the psyche, but their
particular significance depends upon whether they are seen as ascending or descending. Finally, there is, as we have said, the association of the house with the
human body, especially regarding its openings, as was well understood by
Artemidorus Daldianus (56).
To see a house in your dream, represents your own soul and self. Specific rooms in the house indicate a specific aspect of your psyche. In general, the attic represents your intellect, the basement represents the unconscious, etc. If the house is empty, then it indicates feelings of insecurity.

It is common to dream about houses. They usually symbolise our emotional and psychological selves. All of your experiences, stages of development, and parts of your conscious and unconscious life may be represented by that house.

Either way, if you pay attention to the details in this dream, you may learn a thing or two about yourself.

If the road is dark, then it reflects the controversial or more frightening choices which you have made or are making.

Because of its black colour, the crow is associated with the idea of
beginning (as expressed in such symbols as the maternal night, primigenial darkness, the fertilizing earth). Because it is also associated with the atmosphere, it is
a symbol for creative, demiurgic power and for spiritual strength. Because of its
flight, it is considered a messenger. And, in sum, the crow has been invested by
many primitive peoples with far-reaching cosmic significance. Indeed, for the
Red Indians of North America it is the great civilizer and the creator of the visible
world. It has a similar meaning for the Celts and the Germanic tribes, as well as in
Siberia (35). In the classical cultures it no longer possesses such wide implications, but it does still retain certain mystic powers and in particular the ability to
foresee the future; hence its caw played a special part in rites of divination (8). In
Christian symbolism it is an allegory of solitude. Amongst the alchemists it
recovers some of the original characteristics ascribed to it by the primitives,
standing in particular for nigredo, or the initial state which is both the inherent
characteristic of prime matter and the condition produced by separating out the
Elements (putrefactio) (32). An interesting development of crow-symbolism is
the representation of it with three legs drawn within a solar disk. In this form it is the first of the Chinese imperial emblems, and represents Yang or the active life of
the Emperor. The three legs correspond to the sun-symbolism of the tripod: first
light or rising sun, zenith or midday sun, and sunset or setting sun. In Beaumont’s
view, the crow in itself signifies the isolation of him who lives on a superior plane
(5), this being the symbolism in general of all solitary birds.

In Native American Myth the Crow represents the secrets of the sacred law i.e. the laws of truth (intuition) and must not be confused with the commandments of humans or any religious systems. The crow combines past, present, and future, because it lives in a void without any perception of time. Since it also combines light and shadow, it perceives its outer and inner truths simultaneously. The crow guards the sacred laws that came directly from god and proclaimed once that everything that exists is born by woman. People who have the power of the crow must stand by their own realizations and constantly strive to live the truth that they discovered. The Crow signals that you have transcended mortal law, and to permit your own higher self to become your leader.
This animal indicates the need to find balance and to stay in the present and will bring to you the ability to release past beliefs.
Crow is a harbinger of change; spiritual, mental and emotional. Life, death, rebirth, transition magic, watchfulness, look for opportunities coming up, aids in ability to move spiritually and physically.

Are you aware of the nuances in life? Are you listening to signs around you? Crow can give strength and show you how to maneuver in intuitions and insights.

A symbol of individuality—of private thoughts. The windows symbolize the possibility of understanding and of passing through to the external and
the beyond, and are also an illustration of any idea of communication. Hence, a
closed room lacking windows may be symbolic of virginity, according to Frazer,
and also of other kinds of non-communication. Many rites involving the
enclosureimage are performed to mark the reaching of puberty, all over the world.
The legend about Danae, shut up by her father in a bronze tower, pertains to this
particular symbolism. There is a Siberian legend concerning a ‘dark house of iron’
which is also relevant to it (21). We might also mention the ‘vase with a lid’, one
of the eight emblems of good luck in Chinese Buddhism, and a symbol of wholeness, of the idea with no ‘exit’, or, in other words, of supreme intelligence triumphant over birth and death (signified respectively by the doors and windows of
the room) (5). This explains why the hermetically sealed room may possibly be
a variant form of the ‘vase with a lid’.
To dream that you are in a room, represents a particular aspect of yourself or a specific relationship.

Primordial Man. The name is derived from the Hebrew adama ( =
earth). G. G. Scholem, in On the Kabbalah and its Symbolism (London, 1965),
states that, initially, Adam is conceived as ‘a vast representation of the power of
the universe’, which is concentrated in him. Hence the equation macrocosm =
microcosm. In both the Bible and the platonic doctrine of the androgyne, Eve
appears as an excision of the first being, which integrated sexual duality. Do the
tree and the serpent reproduce the same duality on another symbolic plane? Or
do they express a different duality to that contained in the first human couple,
which is the symbol of the internal and external excision of the living being? Eve,
in the rôle of persuader, appears as a mediator between the serpent (the source of
evil, which William Blake likened to energy) and man, who would have been free
and indifferent, and who would have ‘fallen’ only under pressure.
Dreaming of Adam means that you have reached an important stage of your life that can make you or break you. Temptation is great, and the consequences greater. Chances of success are slim, failure is around the corner.
