Question I am chinese and I had a dream that I was surrounded by a community of chinese people and we were sheltering ourselves under umbrellas. In the end after being around chinese people for a very long time - a white persian guy that I used to be madly in love with appears - and I start talking about how he is a beauty queen. Then I wake up. In real life the persian guy is perfect in every way except that he is too young for me. I think I was mildly attracted to the persian guy in my dream.
Answer Hi Xiao,
Thanks for sending me your dream!
It sounds as if this dream is telling you you are ready to come out of your comfort zone and try out new things but perhaps you are a bit apprehensive about trying something new? In the dream, you are with a lot of other Chinese people and as you are also Chinese, this is saying that you have been surrounding yourself with familiar things and familiar people and perhaps you always do things that you feel comfortable with and familiar with. In the dream, you were sheltering under umbrellas so this is saying that you are doing these familiar things because they make you feel secure and safe. I am interested to know what the weather was like in your dream? Was it raining? Was that why you were under the umbrellas? If so, it might point to some personal difficulties or emotional ups and downs that you've gone through and it might be suggesting this as a reason for why you would rather stay with the familiar.
You said that you were under the umbrellas for a long time before this persian guy came along. The fact that you were attracted to this persian guy, and that I imagine persian culture to be quite different from chinese culture, I think this is saying that you really want to come out of your comfort zone and you are really attracted to trying out new things. As you said that the persian guy was perfect in everyway, wanting to try these new things might be to do with improving yourself and striving toward your own personal "perfection". Something might be holding you back though. Maybe you think that you are perhaps a little long in the tooth to be trying these new things? (Eg, you said the Persian guy was too young for you.). Also, perhaps you might think that indulging in your desire for something better might be a little vain? Eg. Your comment that this Persian guy was a bit of a beauty queen!
If this explanation seems to fit with your life, then maybe it is time to really consider diving in and trying this new thing that you desire? Question yourself about what is really holding you back and whether this reason is really logical or based on some false beliefs? Do you thnk you would be disappointed if you never stretched yourself in new directions? Why not give it a go and see what happens? Obviously I don't know all the details of your life or your thoughts and desires so these are truly questions for you to think carefully about and it is up to you to decide which direction to take in the future. Every decision has its pros and cons.
Well those were my impressions on your dream. I hope it was helpful. Let me know what you think and whether you have any other questions about your dream!!!

I view each dream as a metaphor for what you are experiencing in your life. My goal is to guide you into discovering the meaning of your own dreams by explaining the logic behind dream symbols, posing some guiding questions for you to think about, and presenting some possible scenarios as to what your dream could relate to. I believe that dreams reflect our true thoughts and feelings about our life and can therefore help to clarify where we should direct our life in the future.
PS. I am desperate for reviews on my Dream Meanings Shop at the moment so if you can spare even just $1 to buy an interpretation and give me a review, I would be overjoyed!!!
I have always had an interest in dreams. Over the past few years, I have helped hundreds of people by interpreting their dreams in online dream interpretation forums and here on allexperts. Allexperts is by far my favourite site to interpret dreams on because I get so much amazing feedback here and people are genuinely appreciative and encouraging of what I do!! If I ever need a little "pick me up" all I need to do is read my feedback page!!!
And just to add, The Allexperts team ALWAYS answer all my emails straight away. I cannot speak highly enough of the Allexperts team!!
Education/Credentials I have a bachelor of arts degree majoring in sociology and Aboriginal studies. I have also completed 12 month units in religious studies and psychology, as well as a number of post graduate units in epidemiology.
My educational background has given me insight and knowledge about different cultural beliefs and the way people behave and live together. The things we dream and the meaning of the symbols within are not solely a creation of our own minds, but are influenced by our history, our cultural beliefs, and the beliefs and behaviour of those around us.
Above all, I have learned most through hands-on practical experience and through seeking valuable feedback from the people for whom I have interpreted dreams.
