I am to glad post a very interesting dream that has some mythical qualities about it. It was forwarded by a young lady from the USA . I provide the interpretation along with the feedback and analysis for your reading pleasure.
I offer the following interpretations with some uncertainties. Please continue providing the feedback to really getting at the meaning.

Dream: Z was downstairs in the laundry room and he was the only one at home. He heard some footsteps upstairs and then a scary person with a big head and weird face came down the stairs. Z had a 3 prong thing and stabbed the person and killed it. At that point in the dream, he thought "Is this it?" like more scary stuff was supposed to happen. So then Z ripped off the mask and there was X with her hands tied.
Z being in the laundry room
means he is cleaning up i.e. subjects himself to self examination whereby
he comes to have a better understanding of himself, about life ,
what he wants etc. But then there is now the ugly and hidden face of
X that shows up, the wicked and nasty side that was hidden so far.
On seeing it , he fights with it probably bringing some kind of religious
understanding into it. The three pronged tool is the Trisulam, the weapon
of Siva and Sakthi that symbolizes moral strength and Power. However
Z's expectations were something worse and appears to be relieved that the
ugly side is not as bad he thought it would be.
While Z was holding X, he heard bigger footsteps
upstairs and the same type of person (big head and weird face) came downstairs
and Z stood up to defend himself and then the person ran up the stairs.
Z got on the phone and was telling 911 to send the police and ambulance
because X was dying. Z was scared to go upstairs
but yet he knew that he had to bring X up for help. All
of a sudden Z thought "What about Y?" because she wasn't with us.
Then he woke up.
It looks as though the matter does
not end there. Perhaps something worse may happen and either it involves
the child or the love itself . That the child is no more may mean that
the love that has led to living together dies. That Z tries to revive
X may mean that he tries his level best to recover the X, the normal
person so that life can continue as before.
I talked to Z and he said that it sounded right. Thank you
so much for doing this.
It clearly belongs to World 1, the Mulatharam as it involves sexuality as the reigning motivational dynamics. The Buddhi, the dream fabricating processes are complex but because the central theme is the DEATH of a child which symbolizes the death of sexual love between a man and woman, we can ascribe it to MaraNam, the processes that bring the extinction of some elements in the psychodynamics of a person. The Siththies are the attainments, that which is enjoyed by the person and here it can be Mahima, a personal greatness as he vanquishes the ugly side of his spouse and through that emerges victorious.
