Why am I dreaming of all the things I felt bad about in my life?

Remembering the Past Dreams

Dream 331: Easing the Pain

A woman had an elderly mother who had terminal brain cancer and was going through the process of dying. They were very close and her mother was emotionally dependent upon the dreamer. She was having many dreams per night that depicted every emotional situation she felt guilty about in her whole life. She wondered why she was having an onslaught of these dreams now.

Interpretation

Like everyone, the dreamer had a mother introject in her subconscious acquired from her experience as her mother’s child. It many times is the beginning basis of emotion. As her mother went through the process of passing, her subconscious was doing a life review of her emotions which was a way of helping her to cope with her mother’s illness. It was a process of helping her to stay emotionally whole while dealing with the expected loss of her mother.

When a parent is dying, past conflicts emerge from your subconscious for at least three reasons: (1) the subconscious sees it as a chance to resolve inner conflicting feelings, (2) the subconscious is looking out for the dreamer’s well-being because she would be able to handle the loss better having gone through this life review, and (3) the good memories will emerge more once her mother has passed because the conflicting feelings will be dimmed by this process. It is all a grand plan to help acceptance of the inevitable.

You can call it God, your higher self and/or your subconscious since I believe that it turns out that we all end up talking about the same thing.

  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.

    Steven Fox on why past conflicts emerge from your subconscious : It is all a grand plan to help acceptance of the inevitable…so relax and enjoy those dreams if you can.

    1. This has been so helpful to know. Very close friends passed years ago after a long illness and I was caregiver. I still periodically have dreams concerning them but I remember to bless myself, them and forgive myself and them. The dreams are not so angry anymore, in fact quite helpful and loving.

      1. It is good to know that the subconscious intent is to heal and to help you go on. Thanks for your input,it’s good to know that the information I’m putting out there is helping.
