Alan Carr is fascinated by dreams and dreaming. On Saturday’s show he invited listeners to contact him with their dreams. However, he needs to throw away that dream dictionary! These are the actual meanings of his listener’s dreams. They are not taken from any dictionary but are drawn from my own experience in analysing over 100,000 dreams as a professional dream pyschologist.
Dream Being at Simon Cowell’s house with your parents
Meaning You are beginning to really appreciate and identify with your own unique talent. You often judge yourself far too harshly because sometimes you feel that your performances are not as good as you would like them to be. However, you are now recognising yourself as a true entertainer with a rich and varied career ahead of you.
Dream Any Simon Cowell dream

Dream Teeth falling out, jaw and driftwood
Meaning Our teeth symbolise our confidence – if they are falling or crumbling, then so is our confidence. Dan doesn’t move his jaw because he doesn’t have the confidence to really say what is on his mind. Driftwood represents old habits that are causing him to drift in life, so instead of saying what he really feels, he is drifting back into old habits.
Dream Posh lady, mouse and jungle
Meaning The angry posh lady is the part of Lizzy that wants to express her anger at something, probably about someone else being selfish.

She then retreats into mouse like behaviour and goes back to acting timidly. Canoeing down the jungle river shows that she is trying to navigate scary and unknown personal emotions.

The clouds are her own doubts that she will be able to accomplish her great idea.
