(1) A bomb may be a symbol of some unconscious emotional force — for example, sexuality’, or aggression. Repressed desires or drives are likely to explode eventually, causing perhaps a lot of hurt to yourself and others. Deal with them now by giving them your conscious attention and allotting them some place in your daily life. Don’t wait for the explosion - except in the dream itself: in all nightmarish dreams it is a good idea to stay with the dream to the very end, instead of waking up before the frightening conclusion (the explosion; hitting the ground after falling from a height; or whatever it might be).
If you wake up from such a dream before it is finished, you are probably shirking some issue in your personality or in your external life.

Questions to ask yourself - and what to do when the answer is ‘yes’

Under these circumstances, healing ultimately comes with the passage of time. If you do your best to adjust to the new circumstances, you will emerge from your experience with wisdom you might not otherwise have gained.
Am I repressing some powerful feelings?
Your dream is urging you to try and resolve the situation before you blow a fuse. If you don’t know how to go about it, consider confiding in a friend or a member of your family. If this is impossible, then it would be best to seek professional help.
Would I secretly like to say or do something explosive?
While you may have good reason to feel as you do, cultivating a sense of being hard done by can only make matters worse. If you want your circumstances to change, you must be first willing to change your attitude. Can you see how you have actually helped to create this situation? This means that you are actually more powerful than you think you are. Claiming that power and using it more wisely is the key to success.
