I dream in color. Not that this is important, but if you picture this dream, do so in color
The Dream:
I was staring at my hand, I'm almost certain it was my right hand. On my hand was a bright green bug about the width of a my index finger, I know this because it was located on that finger. I am sure was a beetle or perhaps a scarab (which is a beetle anyway) of some sort. This insect was well attached to my finger. I tried to remove it by pulling, but my attempts failed. Despite logic, there was no pain, bu I tried to understand why this was happening. My friends were yelling at me to just pull it off, and when I looked up to explain why I couldn't they all gasped. When I looked down a my hand the bug was gone. As I examined my finger closer, I found a lump in my skin. The bug had, in some strange way, gotten under my skin. I poked and studied the situation. Again, there was no pain (or even an entry scar or wound) and the only thing I could come up with is that it must have became a worm and dug its way into me. I hate bugs.
The Meaning:
The hand is an extension, of the body and thus in dream an extension of the mind and soul. Bugs are simply icky. They are a primal fear, and in dreams they depict people and/or the fact that something is 'bugging' you. Further more, the fact that it is green suggest change. So, this means that people are annoying me, they attach themselves to me and I can't get rid of the live the parasites they are. To stress this point, my friends mocked me and showed their true feelings for me. Also, the bug got into my skin, this translates easily to people are getting under my skin. Despite my bad feelings for society and friends, I felt no pain or discomfort. Instead, I studied it and tried to explain what's wrong. This suggests that people in my life (most likely friends) are annoying me, and I am searching for a way to fix this (as seen in the color green being a symbol of change). At this time of my life I had ditched my old friends and found a new set that I love more than the previous group.
I used The Dream Dictionary by Tony Crsip to help me understand my dream.
