So, I've been doing alot of Kundalini Yoga recently and have started to have some really vivid dreams.
Last night, I dreamt that I was speed-dating and was told by the organisers to go and put some sweets in bowls for the other people involved. The event started and i was furious, because I was doing the job of the organiser and I had gone along to speed date. It seemed to take ages to put these sweets in bowls and by the time I'd finished, the event was nearly over. The sweets had lots of jelly snakes in them and I had trouble distributing them evenly between each bowl. Then my ex-boyfriend's mother turned up, said hello and sat in the corner knitting (can't really imagine her knitting in real life). Then the organiser told me to cut my coat in half. I got a large pair of scissors and preceeded to chop half my coat away. My ex-boyfriend's mother came in and said "you can't cut your coat in half. These people are using you."
I then went to put the sweets on the tables and told the organisers that I wouldn't be doing anymore work for them, because that wasn't why I had come. A sleazy-looking man with a patterned shirt pointed at me and winked, so I went to sit with him (which I wouldn't in real life). As I was going to sit with him, he disappeared. I was told by someone that I had to walk around a pillar to get to him. I walked in circles around this pillar, but couldn't find him.
Sat at two empty tables next to the pillar were two men who looked like, (but weren't) my two ex boyfriends, one of whom is the son of the knitter. The one who I thought was son of knitter looked up at me and I realised it wasn't him, because his face was slightly different, so I walked past him in yet another circle, looking for sleazy patterned shirt man. The other ex boyfriend clone then said "why does she keep walking past my table?" and then laughed in a friendly way.
Does anyone think this dream is about repeating the same old relationship mistakes? Would anyone like to offer an interpretation? It would be much appreciated.

That is good that you have vivid dreaming. But you cannot translate the language of dreams into the language of the physical world. So it is good to dream but when you are awake it is better to do things that you do while awake then think about your dreams.
Some day you will die. But it is not good to spend lots of time thinking about what you will be doing while dead. While doing yoga it is best to do yoga and not think about other things. That is the point of yoga, to be in the moment, not the past or present. You did dream and will dream again but you are not dreaming now.

Thanks for the helpful responses. I often dream of snakes. The last one involved being in what can only be described as a rural italian village, where a huge snake came winding down the street. Then a voice said "karma is coming." Everyone in the village was running away (as you would from an enormous predator that could swallow you whole) except for me. I knew the snake was coming for me and it was a good thing associated with my own personal power over myself. I also dream every few months about the ex bf's mother. It could be that she represents something missing in my life, or some values I've forgotten I had. Need to think about that one.
I like Ginkgo's comment about being present. Have been trying that more lately and yes, I probably do see relationships as work that doesn't pay off, particularly the way I've run them previously. Been taking some time out from them to reassess values and attitudes and find what's right, so the speed-dating context was probably signficant and the futile searching in circles. Personally, I love interpreting dreams, I think they do point to things in our subconscious that we either need to, or don't want to deal with in the conscious world. So again, thanks everyone for helping me with this. Most helpful.
