To scrape something often shows the friction between two parts of your nature, or between you and someone else. So mainly this is friction of some sort, but can also be about trying to clean something, to scrape away or change the way it was – the way you were. Occasionally it deals with feelings about separating things.

It can sometimes relate to work, when we scrape earth away as an archaeologist or scraping earth back into a pit.

Idioms: scrape the bottom of the barrel; scrape by; scrape me off the ceiling; scrape them together; scrape them off

Useful Questions and Hints:

Am I scraping away (discarding) fears or old parts of myself?

Is this about friction within myself, or possibly with someone else?

Am I carefully uncovering something in me?
