Dream Interpretation / Re: Keeping up appearances?

Perhaps just a bit of confusion. 
Both lawn mowing and teeth brushing seem to be about keeping up appearances to me, but there is some strange twist in both dreams that I am not grasping.

Hi Mikey  :)

Your first dream may reflect that what used to motivate you to care for your appearance does not work for you anymore ("the mower had stalled")
The thing with motivations is that they are often unconscious, whereas intention (cutting the lawn) is a deliberate decision.

For instance your unconscious motivation to care for let's say your social appearance - by cutting the lawn; by tidying up your inner world - could be your desire that people would then see you in a way you would like to be perceived by others.

However, the way people see/perceive you may have nothing to do with you, but with the way they have created their own inner world, which inner world they may unconsciously project onto you.

Freud felt that in projection thoughts, motivations, desires, and feelings that we tend to avoid taking responsibility for as one’s own we tend to see them – project them – onto other people. This is sometimes called transference. This is a defence we use to avoid seeing the negative side of ourselves. So instead of seeing that we ourselves are an awful spreader of critical talk, we accuse others of doing it.

If doing your inner work repeatedly does not give you the (inner) reward you desire for, you may lose your motivation.

Questioning your motivation(s) and finding one that works for you to do your inner work and/or to care for your appearances may get your engine started again.
