Dream 214: The Unpredictable Girl
A 36-year-old man dreamt that he moved by operating mechanical extensions that were fastened to each limb. He had a blue-eyed blonde-haired 3-year-old girl on his lap. Every so often the little girl would suddenly twist to the left which greatly inhibited his motions.
The dream was critiquing his mechanistic movement through life which was inhibited by unpredictable unconscious desires. Because the dream’s main character is a man, the dream is announcing that the dream is mainly about actions versus emotions (usually associated with female characters). The child was a representation of the Divine Child archetype.
The Divine Child usually contains our hopes and desires for the future. The Divine Child often has blue eyes and blonde hair and is below 11 years old in Caucasian cultures. That she was a little girl meant that his unconscious emotional (the movement was always to the left which usually means movement toward the subconscious) twists hampered his progress through life.
He was being told that desires contained in his inner Divine Child were getting in the way of smooth and effective action. The dream wanted him to have more control over his actions. His unconscious wishes were throwing twists into his plans.
