Dream 312: You’re Tearing Me Apart

A man in his thirties dreamed that he had a heart attack. Nurses were feverishly trying to revive him with electric paddles.They put one pole of charge on his heart, and mistakenly put the other pole on his hip.

Because when paddle was mistakenly put on his hip, a huge blister developed there. There was so much pressure from the blister that he told the nurses to cut his underwear so that the blister did not burst. The blister took the shape of a heart.

Interpretation

What an interesting dream this is. I’m going to throw out many hypotheses because there’s so many ways these symbols could go in the configuration presented. The only thing that seemed certain was that the dreamer’s feelings had been hurt deeply in some way recently, i.e., it looked like someone had broken the dreamer’s heart.

Nurses are healers. Electricity of course is energy. The hips are near the first chakra and near the genitals. So the configuration of this dream looked like connecting the dreamer’s heart energy with physical desire by mistake led to the dreamer’s feelings being hurt.

Water is emotion. Blisters are full of water that comes from yourself and are a healing reaction to hurt. Having the underwear cut away because of pressure suggests feeling exposed and hurt related to desire somehow.

The blister taking the shape of a heart reinforces the feeling of being hurt emotionally. There were so many ways the details of this dream could be interpreted depending on circumstances. There were many questions that could be posed.

For instance, were nurses actually involved in some way? Did the dreamer’s beloved die of illness? Was his being hurt related to sex or to a sexual relationship in some way?

These were all very invasive questions, but I felt like the meaning of this dream would become fairly obvious if we knew the details which only the dreamer knew for sure.

Feedback

After hearing the above interpretation, the dreamer told me his girlfriend was a nurse. They were going through a painful separation. She was physically ill.

She was pushing him away. She did not think she could give him everything he needed in a relationship. Her misgivings eventually led to the separation. The dreamer felt that the interpretation fit the situation.

    1. I believe our consciousness is connected by a collective subconscious that makes it possible to “know” things concurrently or in the future. We talk about dreams being predictive, and your dream may have been a variation of that. It is a gift. It usually happens concurrently with people that you are close to, and you mentioned that it was the husband of one of your closest friends.

    2. At the first level, if there are no heart problems, it can be interpreted symbolically. A medical physical can help determine if you have heart concerns. Assuming that you are in good health, symbolically it might mean that you have heartbreak about something.
      At another level, dreams can be predictive, and this dream may have been predictive in a very general way because it preceded your friend’s husband death.
