My Fascist Side Persecutes My Spiritual Side (Alcohol)

imagesDream 204: My Fascist Side Persecutes My Spiritual Side (Alcohol)

Dream 204: A 45-year-old manager dreamt he and a group of Jewish rabbis were hiding in an attic because Nazis were searching for them to send them to the concentration camps in the World War II Holocaust. He then saw that the group had a luminous and shining clear pyramid crystal that divided the sunlight into perfect and beautiful colors which it projected on the wall.

The next night, he dreamt the Germans were lining up the Jewish rabbi prisoners and himself in the concentration camp before a large pit. The Nazis began mowing them down with machine gun fire and the shot rabbis fell into the pit. The dreamer somehow saved himself by grabbing one of the rabbis and holding the rabbi in front of himself so that the dreamer shielded himself from the machine gun fire.

Dream 204–
Interpretation

Each group of characters represented a different part of his psyche. The Jewish rabbis represented the spiritual side of himself. The Nazis represent the intolerant, judgemental and critical part of himself that persecuted his spirituality. He had this first dream after he had been sober for three months and attended Alcoholics Anonymous.

He had successfully avoided the judgmental self-destructive part of himself. The pyramid prism is very archetypal and harkens back to ancient Egypt. Colors in dreams are usually different emotions. The dream was saying that he had seen the light and now had clear emotions with solid boundaries.

The second dream occurred after he briefly relapsed before becoming sober again. This latter dream correctly pointed out that his fascist side of his psyche had recently tried to destroy much of his spirituality. Fortunately, a remnant part of his spirituality saved him and brought him back to sobriety and the higher power spirituality of Alcoholics Anonymous.
