My Mom z'l was in the dream too....at the beginning. Before the embarrassment. We're in a big gym. There's another woman there too. She's like a masseuse-type person. She is helping me sit in a low chair and is going to help me wash my face, but I don't want her to. I clip my bangs back and stand up to wash my face myself. I am standing at the far right back corner of the huge room.
People start walking into the room. I am standing there. I feel so embarrassed.
The analysis: What is done is done. I am present in the room. That is a strength in the dream. Another positive strength is that while I may be standing at the back, I am in "the far right corner" of the room. The dream assures me I am doing the right thing by far. In the dream I have been (caught "cleaning myself up") The solution: I just have to keep my head down and get back to business.
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’.

The eleventh enigma of the Tarot pack. The image shows a queen
who, without apparent effort, overcomes a lion, holding his jaws wide open. The
allusion to the Zodiac is clear enough—Leo vanquished by Virgo—and the subject finds its mythological counterpart in Hercules overcome by Omphale. Wirth
points to a highly interesting detail in the allegory: the queen does not slay the
lion, but clasps it to her bosom having stunned it with her club, signifying that one
must not despise the inferior, but master it and put it to good use. There is an echo
here of the alchemists’ belief that what is base must not—and indeed cannot—be
destroyed, it must be transmuted into what is superior. In the affirmative sense,
this enigma symbolizes the triumph of intelligence over brutality; in the negative,
it denotes insensibility and fury (59).
To dream that you have great strength or little strength, represents your level of power in some situation of your waking life.
