To dream of Chinese food takeout or fast food represents situations that feel good noticing nothing matters. Enjoying letting go or not having to worry about anything. Liking knowing that a problem isn’t your concern. Surprised to know that something you thought was important isn’t at all.
To dream of Chinese food that is home cooked or true ethnic represents situations in your life that make you feel unbiased, unconcerned, or not interested in feeling good. Controlling yourself or feeling bored by something.
Example: A man dreamed of smelling Chinese takeout. In waking life he was terminally ill and knew death was close at hand. He died shortly the next day. The Chinese takeout reflected his belief that his impending death would make him feel good thinking his current life didn’t matter.
