I experienced this last night and numerous times in my childhood. I'm lying in bed, eyes closed. I see myself as a small, featureless, skinny being. It's hard to say how small. Instantaneously I am huge. Grizzly Bear size. My mid section is dome like, I am viewing myself from above my head. As a child I would just go back and forth between small and huge. Last night I pondered about how big I was in relation to my surroundings. First, feeling myself on the bed, feeling as big as my room. I then zoom out to North America. My body isn't in the vision now. And then the Continents and the Oceans, and then the entire Earth and then the globe as a cell in a vast dark space. It seems that when I can see myself, I am in a dark void. This vision was the first of its kind.

This is one of the most valued pieces of furniture. It's where we sleep, rest, restore our minds and bodies and engage in sexual pleasure. The bed is symbolic of all of these things.

The quality and the cleanliness of the bed in our dreams may say something about the way we feel about ourselves, and our relationships. In reality we "make our own bed," so the dream may reflect that bed and remind us that we have to either change it or lie in it. If there were things hiding under the bed in your dream, it may symbolise secrets that you or others are keeping.

Night is related to the passive principle, the feminine and the unconscious. Hesiod gave it the name of ‘mother of the gods’, for the Greeks believed

anticipatory state in that, though not yet day, it is the promise of daylight. Within
