What can a ghost, furniture, and a house mean in terms of relationships in a dream?

Dream 409: The ghost of relationships past

A woman had the following dream:

“I need guidance if possible on what this dream meant..

So I dreamt I was not a ghost but invisibly present in my ex and I’s home, which is just his home now. And I noticed little upgrades, for example I thoroughly noticed little ottomans that were black and white stripe, three of them, and also noticed a very high techy fancy massage chair, very similar to the one the gentleman I was dating recently has in his home. That was the whole dream. Very odd, can anybody give me clarity on this one?”

Interpretation

I would suggest that at the first level, the ghost may represent the observing ego part of yourself.

In this case, I think it is very hard to separate the first and second levels of interpretation so I’m going to mix the two together. The first level is within the dreamer’s own psyche. The second level is interpersonal.

The house usually represents the dreamer because it is the framework of which one lives. Furniture usually represent what supports you in your life since furniture supports your body. In this case, I think this particular house because you and an ex lived in it more specifically represents the relationship part of your life.

I think the Ottomans being black and white to me suggest it is more clear what you want and what you don’t want in a supportive relationship. The dream is giving high grades to relationships that are supportive of a modern and soothing relationship. It may also be giving recognition to the idea that the next relationship needs to be modern and physically supportive.

This interpretation may only work in certain universes and is limited by my limited experience which includes my not personally knowing you.

The dreamer later confirmed that the interpretation “sounded about right.”

What if you have a series of dreams close together? Can these dreams all be about the same thing?

Dream 377: I have an idea, I think it is right, and I can do it myself, thank you

A woman had the following series of dreams:

“I had a series of vivid dreams of late.
1. Brushing my hair and clumps of hair fall out asking with pieces of my scalp, which starts to bleed.
2. Surprisingly didn’t know I was pregnant until I went into labor (luckily at a hospital) I end up running from staff to give birth privately in an unused room alone, without help.
3. I make candy and have one recipe I’ve used so often that I know it by heart. In this dream as I tell someone the recipe, a complete stranger shows up in the doorway to insist that my ingredients are wrong. For some reason I can’t let it go, I just keep arguing why I’m right.”

My Interpretation

I love series of dreams. Frequently a series of dreams that occur closely together may be talking about the same issues. I view what is described below as a consolidation of the information.

1. Losing hair can mean worries about having the power to do something. This is something a little different because you were actually losing pieces of your scalp with it. To me, I was wondering if you initially had concern whether you had the right idea about something.

2. Having a baby can be symbolic of starting a new project, a new idea, new venture, etc. Insisting on having the baby alone may actually be advice from your subconscious to pursue the project, idea, or venture alone without other people disrupting the idea.

3. You have a sweet idea of how to nurture others (candy) that you have carried for a long time. You are convinced about the rightness of the idea and can defend it to others (the argument with the stranger).

What does asking your parents for permission to have a grand piano mean in a dream?

Dream 375: Permission to Master and Guide My Emotions and Creativity

A woman had the following dream:

“I was talking to my dad asking his permission to bring home a grand piano. He said we have to ask your mom. So,anyway I brought the grand piano in a den that I’ve never seen before nor have I been there.My mom and dad were there and I said to my mom “Can we keep it? The piano matches the mantel, mom, please.” She said, “Okay.” The dream ended there.”

My Interpretation

At the first level in a dream, your father represents your father introject which is often the basis of your actions. Your mother introject is usually the foundation of your emotions. So this is a big dream.

A piano, and particularly a grand piano, usually represents creativity and mastery. Music puts us in a certain mood that we control by our selection of music we play so that it can be emotionally related. It may be related to deciding to control your emotions.

In thought emotionally, and in action, you decided on some level to give yourself the means to make beautiful music emotionally or something on that order would be my first idea. And giving yourself permission to do this creative or emotional thing is something that you have decided upon to let yourself do.

What is the collective unconscious and how does it relate to the law of attraction?

Dream 374: The Law of Attraction and the Collective Unconscious Refer to the Same Thing

The collective unconscious according to Dr. Carl Jung was a sort of a master subconscious. The idea was that we each have our own individual subconscious which feeds into an overriding mass master subconscious composed of all human consciousness. That is, the collective unconscious is composed of every thought ever thought by any human in all of time.

When you put out a thought or idea into the universe, similar thoughts or energies will gravitate towards it. We do not know by what mechanism or dimension this occurs, but I believe one day the science will find out how this is happening . Just because we can not explain it now does not mean that it does not exist.

I believe once the ideas gather sufficient weight in numbers of human consciousness, they are then manifested in reality. This explains why the Law of Attraction works. This puts a great deal of responsibility on all of us in the sense that every thought that any person ever had entered the collective unconscious.

Meditating is not strictly a passive activity because the thoughts generated could affect the collective subconscious. Buddhists have known for millennia that meditation can change the world.

Any thought can potentially affect the world. When you meditate, it is not just a passive activity, you are actively influencing the collective subconscious of people everywhere. Using this frame of reference, dreams, dream images, and dream ideas may sometimes be the collective unconscious communicating with you through dreams.

What does the ocean, sea coral, and three children mean in a dream?

Dream 307 Grow in Awareness of Your Subconscious Emotions or Take a Good Look at Yourself

A woman saw three children running toward a building. Then she found herself in a room which had a fair going on in it with a circus atmosphere replete with concessions, vendors, games, monkeys, fountains of chocolate, costumes, etc. She then saw three kids with a vendor.

The vendor and the three children were in a kitchen. One of the children was licking a bowl after a cake was made. They were listening to the man. He had blue coral growing on half of his face.

The man turned to her to demand that she should be teaching the children about the ocean which is what he was doing. It was all important that she teach the children about the ocean.

Interpretation

Three is the number of change. Three is the number of change because 3 people in a relationship is the most unstable interpersonal situation possible. Things are going to change. Each character is a part of the dreamer’s mind. Children would be relatively new parts. So the dream was saying that she needed to change by integrating relatively new parts of her thinking.

There are a lot of entertainment figures in this dream. The dream may be saying she needed to have more fun and play in her life. The kitchen is a place of creativity and nurture.

The man wants to talk about the ocean which basically is the subconscious. I believe the dream in a larger sense is saying it would be helpful to her creativity (the kitchen). It would also sweetly nurture (the cake bowl) the dreamer to look at her subconscious emotions (teaching the new parts of herself–the children–about the ocean).

Coral is alive and is growth in the ocean. The dream is screaming that exploring her subconscious emotions would lead to growth in how she looked at herself (the coral is on his face). She had to face up to it.

Life Is But a Dream

 

This dream you call the world is not the problem;

your problem is that you like certain parts of the dream and dislike others.

Once you have seen the dream as a dream,

you have done all that needs to be done.”

Carl Jung and the Cosmic Reality of Dreams

Carl Jung and the Cosmic Reality of Dreams

The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach. Dr. Carl Jung

Working with dreams makes one more spiritual. The organization, depth, breadth, and reach of dreams is truly cosmic. One feels a greater unifying power when interpreting dreams. Steven G. Fox, Ph.D.
