Dream 185: Saving My Soul
A 35-year-old man dreamt that one of his high school friends who later became an alcoholic jumped off a cliff into a river. The dreamer then jumped off the cliff and found himself in murky river water. He saw a liquor bottle at the bottom of the river whose neck was stuck in the bottom of the river. The part facing up was without a bottom and was a circle which was very sharp. He touched the circle with the palm of his right hand. The sharp glass etched a perfect round and luminous circle in his palm.
Dream 185 Interpretation
The dreamer was struggling with substance abuse. He recently was getting into major trouble every time that he drank. The dream was issuing a stern warning that he was falling off the same cliff his alcoholic friend experienced and was in murky emotional waters as a result. It warned that he would go to the bottom if he reached for the bottle.
The right goes with consciousness and hands are used to do tasks. The dream warns that his ability to carry out tasks would be hurt (cut) if he drank. The round and luminous circle warns that substance abuse literally held the key to the fate of his soul.
The circle emblazoned on his palm was representative of his soul because it has no beginning and it has no end. The dream was saying that the fate of his soul was in his hands. Hands are used to do things and the dream was using cut hands to emphasize that drinking would affect his ability to carry out tasks.
