The Meat Market–Cut It Out


Dream 275: Cut It Out–No Yearning for the Meat Market A 36-year-old woman dreamed that there were two copy machines at her therapist’s office, a regular one and a large one. The regular copier worked fine. The large copier produced over-sized copies. She adjusted it so that it produced copies that were only 104% the size of the original.

She then saw herself driving a car through a forest. At different times a man in a white suit with a butchers cleaver would appear to the right as an image to her. These images appeared three times.

The dream shifted to a cow that was disoriented and “loony.” It was pointlessly milling about and mooing like it was yearning for other cows. It stumbled into a mud pit, but was able to climb out of it.

Interpretation
The copy machines were encouraging her to retain what she learns from therapy (since her therapist was in the dream and copy machines are used to keep information). The dream was urging her to retain what she learned in therapy. The different sizes were urging her not to “make mountains out of mole hills” as the large copier was so large it was almost unusable. It also indicated she was trying to get a good perspective on things in her life as she was only exaggerating concerns a bit (104% images).

Three is the number of change as three people in a relationship is inherently unstable. The three (change) white (white is the most spiritual color) men were the conscious (the right side tends to go with conscious action) heroic masculine or action parts of yourself urging her to “cut out” (the butcher’s cleaver) some behavior. The appearance of the heroic masculine (the action part associated with positive change in psychotherapy) and the color white implied this is deep spiritual healing. The forest simply indicated that she was “not out of the woods yet.”

Dreams are seldom subtle. A butcher’s hatchet, along with a cow later in the dreams may be suggesting that she avoid being on the “meat market” dating scene because it would drive her “loony.” It wanted her instincts (animals represent instinctive urges) to avoid getting “stuck in the mud” and avoid yearning too much. That her instincts were able to climb out of the mud was a vote of confidence from her subconscious.

  1. Mira Prabhu – India – I was born in India and moved to New York in my mid-twenties. It was during my tumultuous residence in Manhattan that I first became fascinated by eastern philosophy’s power to transform the genuine seeker.So, during the freezing winter of 1993, I began to write Whip of the Wild God, a novel of tantra set in an ancient civilization reminiscent of India’s famous Indus Valley Civilization. I completed this novel–believe it or not!–twenty years later, in the shadow of Arunachala, the ancient hill considered by millions to be the God Shiva incarnate. Three more novels are currently simmering in my consciousness–Copper Moon Over Pataliputra, set in the time of the magnificent Mauryan Empire (300 BCE, India); Krishna’s Counsel, a contemporary novel (the genre: metaphysical crime fiction!), set both in India and New York, and a third, untitled, in which I intend to present the spiritual “view” necessary for seeking moksha, or enlightenment–a unique and perhaps controversial view I have garnered from my travels and study all across the globe–from south India to Manhattan, to the foothills of the Himalayas, Europe, and finally back to south India. I now live in the deep south of India, hanging out with my divine canines, Kali and Aghori, delighting in my growing garden, and continuing to mine my own creative and spiritual potential.
