Mice: which is supposed mean that I'm letting little insignificant problems take over
Water: in the dream is was uncontrollable, rushing, and flooding the bathroom, which is supposed to mean that I'm overwhelmed by emotional turmoil
A public restroom with no stalls or doors and there where a ton of people around: supposed to mean that I'm having difficulty letting go of old emotions
Taking a bath: supposed to represent a need for self renewal and escape from everyday problems and to get rid of the burdens that I have been carrying.
I don't think a dream dictionary can tell you what your dreams mean. Mice, for instance, mean all kinds of different things to different people. Some people are afraid of mice, and some think they're cute. Some people have pet mice. Some people have problems with wild mice in their houses. A dream where you're taking care of a cute baby mouse that talks like a little kid is completely different from a dream where giant disease-carrying mice are taking over your house.
Dreams can tell you something about your concerns, hopes, fears, current state of mind, etc., but it's not as simple as just looking up symbols in a dictionary. You have to think about what the things in the dream mean to you - what they remind you of, how they make you feel - and how all that might relate to things that are going on in your life right now, or things that have happened to you in the past.
I don't at all believe that dreams can predict the future. They may show you what you hope or fear will happen, or what seems likely to happen, but not what definitely will happen.
Some dreams are meaningful. Some, at least some of mine, seem more like just random firing of neural pathways or rehashing recent events in my life.
But SOME come wrapped in a cloak of "This Is An Important Message. Open Immediately." And those dreams are always significant.
A very wise woman I studied under some years ago said, "Dreams are letters from your soul. And most people don't even open their mail."
