Consider this dream:
I'm a student in a classroom. The assignment is to sit and breathe as little as possible.
To perform this task, I go into a meditation pose. But I'm the only student who uses this technique. So I'm a little worried that I might be doing the assignment incorrectly.
While still sitting, I travel through various locales. I encounter no trouble in any of these places. Eventually, I end up back in the classroom. I have completed the test successfully, it seems.
A male student in the class receives an official document stating that he's been released from an Egyptian prison.
Though I had some clear ideas about what the test represented, I did not understand the symbolism of the locales I visited. Yes, I understood what "prison" represented, but why was it an Egyptian prison? I didn't have a clue.
Though another student had received this release, not me, I understood that any person, any thing, any place in a dream is part of myself. So the male student was also me.
Despite my doubts, I had performed the task correctly. I had earned my freedom. I had resolved the problem of the dream. Applying this information to my waking life, I could see that the situation I was in was a test and that if I followed my guidance (my teacher), I would eventually be released.
