Because of the idiom ‘one in the oven’ may depict pregnancy or the womb; the human ability to transform character qualities. From being a sulky, irritable person, one can change to being self-giving and open. Depicts this because the oven transforms inedible substances or objects into delightful food, or course burns them making life inedible.

In common speech is used as a symbol of the womb, one in the oven. Also as a symbol of the crucible or melting pot, where changes in life are made. It therefore represents transformation. See Alchemist

 An oven is a cooks tool kit, so what you do or fail to do with the oven has bearing on how you care for a basic need.

Useful Questions and Hints:

Do you cook well or depend on someone else to provide for you?
Does this represent transformation or changes in life being made?

Is this about pregnancy as in ‘a bun in the oven’?

What would it mean to see someone put a cell phone that wasn’t working into a microwave then when taken out,the cell phone worked? It was about magic or a trick. Other part of dream I was the passenger in a car with my ex from 15 years ago. She took me to a school and the name on the school was ‘ the fourth gospel’. Which i m guessing would have something to do with the gospel of john? Perhaps that came up and maybe for a reason?, because I’ve been debating myself over the reliability of the new testament and thinking it wrong and that the Jews might be right.

    Dear Ryan – Thank you for sending us such an interesting dream and comment!
    I too believe that the dream came up because you have been debating yourself over the reliability of the New Testament.
    The answer in your dream I perceive as very creative, which LIFE IS.
    I understand the dream as expressing to you that it is not so much about “the reliability of the new testament” that is important in your life.
    The dream suggests you have to become an eyewitness – “an observer” – while exploring/learning what will work for YOU to reach to, or become aware of the huge potential of the mind, or of consciousness.
    Become an observer of your inner world because “the fourth gospel contains more direct claims to eyewitness origins than any of the other Gospel traditions” according to Paul N. Anderson.

    The cell phone is also about “hearing/receiving the inner Call toward transformation”.

    The symbol of the microwave I see as an expression of the healing vibration or potential energy that is able to transform your inner being.

    Perhaps reading Tony’s book Yield will give you a different understanding of the world of symbols and help you to move away from “who might be right”, which inner debate might perhaps be a form of resistance toward transformation.
    YIELD: Here is how the New Testament looks when it is looked at as a dream. It comes to life in a new way, a personal way. It shows how the story is about you and me, and not about a historical and often distant figure. In fact it is about a personal path of transformation.

    Your dream shows that it will be helpful to connect with your ex in your inner world, because she can lead you to a different way of perceiving.
    Physically a man is predominantly male, but also has nipples and produces some female hormones. Psychologically, we may only express part of our potential in everyday life. In a man, the more feeling and caring side may be given less expression. Apart from this some functions, such as intuition and unconscious creativity may also be held in latency. These secondary or latent characteristics are depicted by the female in male dreams.
