Dream 487: Protecting Powerful Energies from the Negative

Screen-Shot-2015-04-13-at-11.49.40-AM-600x409

Dream 487: Rolling in the deep

A man had the following dream:

“So I had a dream where I was up on this sort of wooden watchtower with a bow and some arrows when suddenly a group of people riding elephants swarmed my tower. I held them off with my arrows and in the dream, I shot them and got them all (sparing the elephants).
I also dreamed that I had a large sword in the dream.

So what does this dream mean?”

Interpretation

Dreams frequently tell you what they are going to be about by the setting employed. You are in a watchtower which I believe may be the dream’s way of saying what the dream is going to be about, I.e. what you need to watch out for. It is about being discerning and protecting yourself from threats.

Each living thing usually represents a part of the dreamer’s mind. Animals are mostly instinctive energies (sex and aggression). An elephant is powerful energy. There are also sayings that may come into play such as “the elephant in the middle of the room” and the fact elephants have excellent memories.

A bow and arrow is used to defend yourself and you may be “aiming for perfection.” A sword metaphysically can be the intellectual discernment to cut through the garbage and penetrate to the truth.

I believe the dream might be giving advice. I think you have to discern what relationships in your life are predatory and/or arouse powerful emotions from you that wastes your energy. To get rid of negative or provocative people, in this case, you have to do so with accurate aim and finesse. Doing it at the right time and place to reduce emotional hurt to yourself is important (the elephants are not injured).

What might twin boys and twin girls mean in a dream?

Dream 481: The sky is the limit

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream last night that I was holding four children, two boys and twin girls…they were so adorable…I have no idea what it means, but I felt do much love for them.”

Interpretation

Each living thing in a dream is usually a part of the dreamer psyche. Boys tend to go with actions. Girls tend to go with emotions. There is something new in your life, either a new idea, a new relationship, or new plans that you are taking new actions to implement on the basis of new emotions. The reason I believe this is that when the dream wants to emphasize something it gives you two and you have double twins. Congratulations!

Reaction: I received the following reaction from the dreamer:

“Wow, that is correct…I just launched my freelance writing business this year and am planning a move out of state, plus hoping to meet someone new to date once there. Thanks!”

Why do high schools show up so often in dreams?

 

Dream 477: Your subconscious wants to take you higher

maxresdefault (3)

A woman was having nightmares about high school continuously. She wondered what this could mean.

Interpretation

I’ve noticed that people of all ages like to use high school in their dreams, or their dreams like to use the high school setting. I believe it is because it is a formative time of personality.

I also think the dream is making a play of words on it being a high school, a school for your higher self. If you are having constant nightmare scenes involving high school, without knowing further content, I would guess that there are some Shadow aspects to your personality that you have not integrated into your higher self.

I would guess that the nightmares represent a struggle to try to come to some terms as to how to integrate sexual and aggressive parts of your personality into your higher self.  Dreams are often an extension of problems we try to consciously work on during the day.

Her nightmares probably mean that some basic aspects of her life are
akilter, but it is hard to know which areas of her life are involved without her describing more content.

Digging a hole for yourself

woman in a hole picture

Dream 474: Hole in your soul
A woman dreamed she was at her work and this big cave opened up in the parking lot. It seemed to get bigger and no matter how much dirt she got in there to cover it, it never filled up.
Interpretation
Movement underground in a dream tends to represent the subconscious. You are at work so it probably involves work issues. I think the dream is saying that you’re staying at where you’re working is just digging a deeper hole for yourself. Pretty dramatic and the dream is doing this to emphasize it, I think.
Dreams are always perfect. The fact that it occurs in a parking lot, I think, means that your subconscious views you as stationery at your job, as not moving ahead career-wise.  This dream recommends that the woman get a new job and not stay with the company she was working for.

Dream 472: We want to take you higher

A woman had the following dream:

“This is one of the unforgettable dreams. From long ago as I feel it has great relevance today. I’m in college. 1990. I’m waiting at night time on football bleachers with several others. We are just waiting, it’s quiet, still. All very calm. I look over at the small family beside me. A mother with and her two children. All bright angel blonde hair with big blue eyes, all wearing glasses which magnified their eyes to huge blue orbs. Sweet, tender kind faces. “Are you afraid? I asked the little boy. “No.” He answered. He was calm and looked anxious almost in anticipation. His mother gently smiled. In my uncertain anxiousness, this brought me comfort. If he was not afraid, then surely there was nothing to fear. Still I waited gazing out into the huge empty football field, as we sat waiting patiently for what God only knew. I glanced over to my left to then notice a ship or craft had landed. A huge white disc, lowering it’s front ramp without sound onto the night lawn. Soon people, ordinary people, humans began to slowly file out slowly off the ramp onto Earth. Individuals to small families. They appeared to have been gone for a while, some 10, 20, 30 years or more years perhaps. Returning from a trip quietly and sullenly as if waking out of a dream yet unmoved as they were gently lead off the craft. There was no rush in their movement. Languid and lilt. As if taking in sights as a new born might. Looking around, taking it in. Soon they approached us. We and the small blonde haired boy were excited. “Did you like it? What was it like?” They seemed unperturbed calm and unexcited. “Yes, it was long time, glad or happy to be back.” (To that affect.)The boy and I looked on anxiously. As brave as I started out I suddenly hesitated. He was not afraid but I was not as so certain. He was ready, I was not so much. He ran over to the craft pulling me with him. “Come on let’s go.” It was he and I who ventured where the silent ship awaited. No one at all to be seen just a lowered ramp entrance where the others had exited. All I recall from that moment was a view of Earth from space. She was lovely and suddenly the globe had become an image of a diagram divided into slices. The ship’s attendant then asked: “What do you see? “In each of the ‘slices’ were planetary issues.
Such as:
War
Famine
Natural Disaster
Diseace
Destruction
Poverty
Prejudices

“What about Peace?” I asked the attendant wearing all black and what appeared to be a black space helmet. I could not see him or his features but I felt a very kind benevolence from him and towards him, though it was definitely all business.

“There will be.” He answered.

That was it. Mission accomplished. (For them) I still had a lingering deep concern in that no longer feeling the excitement I
had started out with but an overwhelming sadness and concern for Earth and the future of humanity.
I suddenly felt the very serious and heavy pressure of responsibility.

I recall the interior of the ship immaculate. Everything was a clean shiny white. Simple. Quiet. A space hum. It seemed once the questioning was over, that was it.
I was free to go.

And that was it as I observed the moments on board. Absorbing what I could. For it was incredibly peaceful and yet not abode but a craft traveling through space and time.

Business, professional, serious and responsible. That was the image that presented. Gentle. Kind. Quiet.
Methodical.

Upon leaving I was escorted to the ramp and lead down onto the green where I was happy to be back on Earth, but feeling older and with a little more kindness gentleness love and concern for this beautiful planet we call “home.”

Thank you~ May your dreams carry you to new destinations filled with hope and inspiration. :)”

Observations regarding the dream

This is a very “big” dream that is meaningful and was important for your future life course. I would only add that the children were the Divine Child archetype.

The Divine Child is the part of us that contains our hopes, desires, and aspirations for the future. The little boy would go more with your actions. The Divine Child archetype frequently has blonde hair and blue eyes in Western cultures.

What is being played out here, is your subconscious is laying out the design of what you could do in the future. It obviously wanted you to travel far and to experience realms that you could only imagine.

A UFO or spaceship is a mandala of divine possibility. The white is the most spiritual color there is. It is shaped in a round disc which is a symbol of the Soul. Your subconscious was laying out the pattern it wanted you to follow in your life.

I believe the man with the black helmet was your soul or subconscious talking directly to you to make sure you got the message.

What does a centaur, lioness, avian, Pegasus and nuclear explosion mean in a dream?

wild natural woman

Dream 470: Controlling My Instincts

A man posted the following question:

“I am posting for a friend, because when she recalls her dreams, they usually mean something. They use imagery, symbolism and metaphors.

In the first part of her dream, she had to contain a room full of snakes without hurting any. That’s about it…

In the second part of the same dream, she was on ‘Earth’ but there were human-animal hybrids that imprisoned and ruled over humanity. They were protected from the ‘end’.

The moon was to collide with the planet, but as it hit, the sky flickered like a hologram, and the world leaders announced a failed nuclear detonation. They were trying to destroy the planet but blame something else.

The hybrids stand out to me:
-Avians
-A strange form of centaur that was half horse, but half were-wolfish
-A form of pegasi that had bat wings
-Human-Lioness hybrids. White/blonde

Interpretation

The first part of a dream sequence usually announces what the dream is going to be about. Snakes almost invariably represent change. What is interesting about this is that she’s not worried about the snakes hurting her, she wanted to be careful to not hurt the snakes.

A snake is considered, broadly speaking, to be an animal. Animals usually represent our instincts. It is interesting that she wants to be careful not to damage her instincts which is unusual and bodes well for her, I believe. As we treat ourselves so we tend to treat others, and I would suspect that she is a very considerate type of person. So the dream is announcing that this sequence is going to be about change and how she handles her instincts, making sure not to damage her groundedness.

One can’t help but like the hybrids part of this dream. It represents instincts that are well-controlled.

In fact, I believe this series of dreams is all about her concern over controlling her instincts. Fortunately, I think the dream delivers mostly good news on this account. She is a very diverse person with well-controlled instincts. Let me take them one by one.

The Avians are like birds and usually represent freedom, i.e., “free as a bird.” Freud was right on a few things, and one of the things he was right about is that a horse usually goes with female sexual power. But this is a centaur, which is half human, which would normally indicate that her sexuality instincts are usually well-controlled; however, this centaur is half-horse and half were-wolf-like. That would indicate that she is worried about the wild side of her sexuality.

I think of the pegasi as a magical flying horse. So this would probably represent the magical power of sensuality.

The human lioness image is powerful. It is always good to have powerful animals in your dream. She has a lot of psychic energy that can be used for good. A lioness is Queen of the Jungle and actually does all of the hunting while the King of the Jungle sleeps. To me this would imply that she has a solid work ethic and maternal instincts.

The white & blonde color is interesting. White is the most spiritual color, while blonde is considered to be an ideal quality of the feminine and Divine Child in Western culture.

The Moon is usually thought of as going with subconscious emotional impulses that are somewhat in the dark. The Moon is literally colliding with the Earth which is a way of saying what she fears what will happen if her subconscious instincts are actualized, i.e., what will happen if her instincts become grounded and actualized in reality.

The Hologram is interesting. Any piece of a hologram will reflect the whole hologram. So in some sense a hologram is indestructible. I think the dream is trying to reassure her that her world doesn’t come to an end because of subconscious conflicts and change going on in her life.

Fire goes with change because fire changes matter into energy. A nuclear explosion is super fire or super change.

I think part of this involves the dream trying to reassure her that her world doesn’t come to an end if she becomes somewhat more instinctually uninhibited.

The world leaders are the opposite of the instinctive parts of herself. They actually think about destroying the world when they are supposed to be the leaders of the world. In other words, they are so logical that they make no sense. Does this sound like her parents?

This dream is partially a cautionary tale of rationalization and logic going too far, which she will not do because she honors her instincts highly. On the other hand, safe sex should be practiced to prevent a detonation.

Does everyone dream? How come I do not remember my dreams?

tmp_12164-illusion-788698142

Dreams spiral into the depth of the subconscious

We all need dreams. They have performed experiments where people were not allowed to dream because they interrupted the sleeper’s REM sleep. When they were allowed to go to sleep again without their REM sleep being interrupted, they made up for all the REM sleep they had missed by dreaming much more than they would have otherwise.

People with extreme psychological disorder or serious physical illness/malfunction do not dream. Marijuana, and alcohol to a lesser extent, block dream memory. Otherwise, everyone dreams. They just forget that they had a dream. The problem is not that they are not having dreams, the problem is that they cannot access their memory to recall dreams.

Surprisingly, people who wake up several times during the night may actually have more dreams. This is because for the dream to be remembered, it has to be transferred from short-term memory to long-term memory. This transfer takes place best when you are awake. So as long as you go back to sleep, waking up lightly several times at night may actually help you remember dreams.

What does helping someone who sleeps in your bed without permission in a dream mean?

woman-sleeping-600x450_1

Dream 465: I help out, but stay out of my bed!

I dreamed a tall bold head girl lying in my bed eyes closed. In her dress. I wasn’t happy with the size of her or anything else.  If somebody can help me in interpretation of this dream, please do. Thank you.

Forgot to mention that I saw her before sitting in the chair and in few seconds she was sleeping in my bed. In the first place, I felt she needed help and I was happy to help. But all of a suddem, seeing her in my bed sleeping without checking with me, and also her size bothered me. Do I need changes in me or is something in my environment bothering me…may be I need to be more flexible…mmmm…

Interpretation

I think this dream involves your boundaries and feeling your personal sanctuary has been violated. It sounds like you may try to help others too much emotionally to the point that they take it for granted. You then are stuck with the “too big” of a problem of putting them back in their place, which is really hard to do after you let the genie out of the bottle.  I think the dream is saying that you can help others, but expect them to honor your boundaries.

What does a white buffalo symbolize in a dream?

dakotalegend

Dream 460: Give me a spiritual home “Where the Buffalo Roam”

The Native Americans so the Buffalo as a sign of abundance because it supplied almost all of their needs. The color white is the most spiritual color as it is a combination of all the other colors. The Lakota Indians saw the White Buffalo as uniting all the different races of man. The White Buffalo was always a very sacred symbol that was a good omen of good times to come.

What might Gnats, Fruitflies, Furniture, and Shoes mean in a dream?

gnats

Dream 459: These Little Annoying Things Are Getting Old and Stale

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream I was in a type of living room or waiting area.   A man came in that I’ve never seen before.  He laid down on the chair and he was eating something.  I went to get my shoes and there were other shoes.  When I bent down there was a lot of gnats or fruit flies (I think it was gnats because they were black).  It looked like the gnats were above the shoes.I tried hitting them away. It ended there.Thank you.”

Interpretation

At the first level of dream interpretation, each character represents a part of hour mind. Men usually go more with an action part of the mind.  Food usually signals psychological support or nurturance.

Furniture and shoes each support us in different ways. Shoes, in particular support your actions and trying to move forward. I think black shoes are more likely to represent financial support as black is often associated with business attire.

Gnats represent little annoying things whose pestilence is feeding on old and stale things. Gnats usually come around things that are decaying and decrepit, around things that are really getting old and stale fast. Gnats symbolize small annoying things that are feeding upon your active support, your shoes.

If it is a symbolic dream, a man eating who sits on the chair while eating with furniture and shoes involved indicates that a part of you or a part of your actions that were nurturing and supportive are feeling walked upon. It also probably indicates things are getting really old and decadent fast. In other words, you may be tired of a situation where you are the one expected to do supportive actions and the negative effect it is having upon you.

The black shoes could possibly imply more of a business or finance part of yourself. So the question would be “Have you been financially or otherwise supportive to someone, and it is getting kind of old if you know what I mean?” These Little things are really starting to “bug” you.

What does blood and hissing mean in a dream?

4845263-bleeding-beautiful-sad-woman-laying-on-the-bed-stock-photo-blood

Dream 458: I have been betrayed by too many people

A woman had the following dream:

Last night, I had a dream that I was with a lover.  We were laying in a bed in my house.  I was holding his hands sort of like playing Mercy. I was holding his fingertips and squeezing them right at the nail beds right at the cuticles. And as I was squeezing his fingers, I was biting my own tongue and moving my head back and forth like a sprinkler.  As I was biting my tongue, I was spraying blood back and forth like a sprinkler.

While this was happening, I was hissing. And there was a very sweet sweet smell in the air–everything smells very sweet. Then, when I stop squeezing his fingers and I stopped hissing and I stop bleeding everywhere. I looked up and I was outside on the road and the smell went away. But then I tried to grab his hands again and recreate the bleeding and squeezing and the hissing so that I could smell the smell again but I couldn’t get the smell back and I couldn’t bleed again.

Interpretation

The setting the dream opens with is usually what the dream is mainly about. In this case, it concerns your intimate relationships. Blood is related to your vital life energy, and usually implies very close or intimate relationships. Bleeding is how you’ve been hurt or how your life force has been diminished.

It starts out with a game of Mercy with a lover. This I believe is a play on words. It implies that you were expecting playfulness and mercy in an intimate relationship, but instead were betrayed and hurt deeply. Your bleeding from the mouth indicates that you’ve been very hurt by how people, people who were close to you, have reacted to what you have said to them about this intimate betrayal.

The dream is being dramatic in using blood being sprayed everywhere like a sprinkler because I think it is trying to say that you’ve been physically, psychologically and socially hurt. Like a water sprinkler covers a wide area, this particular betrayal is so deep that it is affecting all areas of your life.

The hissing is interesting. Snakes are most often associated with hissing. Snakes in dreams are usually associated with change. Hissing is a warning that the snake is going to strike. I believe this is a condensation in the sense that your subconscious wants you to be alert for how you could be hurt in the future.  It also wants you to be careful that in your hurt feelings, that you don’t unintentionally hurt others who probably don’t realize the full extent of what you’ve been through.

Your not being able to recreate the same situation later in the dream, I think means that the dream wants you to avoid any situation that even comes close to the recent betrayals. The dream is emphasizing that what happened is over, and it is trying to help you minimize the damage to your life. A person cannot speak when they’re bleeding profusely from the mouth.  By implication, the dream is saying that you haven’t been heard in the way that you meant it, and it is hurtful to you. The dream wants you, as much as you can, to avoid any situation that comes close to the Betrayal and events after it. The hissing is a warning to be on the alert for it. The dream moves to you being on the road to emphasize that your mind wants you to go on with your life in spite of the betrayal/betrayals.

The dream is not offering a solution other than to point out metaphorically the bloody carnage the betrayals have caused. By implication, it wants you to move on.  The dream seems to be trying to warn you to avoid being played/playing games with people close to you that could hurt you dearly.

What might a starving cat in a vegetarian’s dream mean?

23c60b3b00000578-2862197-the_majority_84_per_cent_of_vegetarians_go_back_to_eating_meat_e-a-22_1417794991897

Dream 457: More ways than one to feed a starving cat

A woman had the following dream:

“I keep having a reoccuring dream of my dog.  She is a small dog.  I wake up and she is on my front step.  There is a tub with hundreds of baby chickens. She is eating them and I hear their bones crunching.  It’s scary for me because I’m vegeterian.

Interpretation

Each person or animal in a dream is part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of interpretation.  Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. In this case, it seems the cat represents some part of her instinct too survive.

Household pets usually represents the person’s affections or preferences because of the good feelings we have about pets.  Cats usually are associated more with feminine energy because they are independent, sensuous and intelligent.  I think this cat is announcing what you need to eat to survive.

Her subconscious is dramatically screaming that she needs protein. She does not have to totally give up being a vegetarian, but she should consider doing “social chicken.” After all, 89% of vegetarians go back to eating meat. Especially as you get older, you typically need the protein.

Dreams usually indicate that you can’t always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you get what you need at http://www.drstevenfox.com

What is a numinous dream?

pyramid-wallpaper

Dream 456: Going down is going up in this pyramid

A woman had the following dream:

“I was standing in a dark empty space and realized my feet felt numb. I tried to feel for the energy around my right foot when suddenly I felt a strong burst of energy shoot downward from the heel of my foot. I looked down and saw a square shaped opening had appeared beneath me and I was slipping down into it. The walls were lined with red brick and I could see it extended far into the darkness.

I knew somehow that this space was the inside of a pyramid. It was made of red brick, shaped upside-down, and empty inside. I had entered through the square shaped base and was sliding down its wall, the space grew more narrow as I neared the endpoint.

I woke up before I reached the bottom, but not too long after seeing the red pyramid beneath my right foot I had a second occurrence.

This time it was energy projected from the front of my left foot. I was floating in outer space looking down into a galaxy. I could see flickering stars far off in the distance and below me was the swirled gases and random debris turning on its axis. I looked around me into the darkness and thought: “this is where all life came from.” I knew I was in the place where all energy is exchanged, transformed, and recycled. I had the thought that all living things knew this place in the back of their minds and are always linked to it throughout our whole lives.”

Interpretation

In some ways it sounds more like an experience than a dream. If I were to interpret it like a dream, I would say that there’s probably a good balance between your consciousness and your subconscious as energy shoots from both your left foot and your right foot. The right usually goes with the conscious energy while the left usually goes with subconscious energy.

I would say that the reason the pyramid sticks in your mind and is very vivid is because this image is very archetypal. I believe it is an upside-down Egyptian pyramid. It is archetypal because the pyramids are images fixed in our subconscious because of their importance to mankind in history and their meaning symbolically involving power and death.

We talk about there being a pyramid of needs with the most basic needs being at the base of the pyramid and the higher needs such as self-actualization being at the top of the pyramid; however, this is an upside down pyramid. The reason for that is movement downward means that you are going down further into your subconscious usually. The dream turns positively cosmic when the energy shoots from your left (subconscious) side.

What the dream is saying is that you reach toward your goal of self-actualization more by delving into your subconscious. The reason it is red is because red goes with strong emotion. So I think the dream is reflecting that you are experiencing personal growth and self-actualization by delving deeper into your emotions and self-actualization subconscious needs.

Your dream sounded like a numinous (I like to say luminous) vision dream which has a sacred larger than life feel to it. In Carl Jung’s world, having a numinous dream experience was always a big deal and significant.

What does a scarecrow and a city underwater mean in a dream?

5a057f504521b95c571c0f0d55846be6

Dream 455: It’s scaring me, but I’ll protect my family

A man had the following dream:

I’m at the sea dangling my feet on the water. I stare at the water for some time. It’s like my mind goes somewhere else. Then after some time I find that the water is beginning to drown me. Bear in mind I’m off shore on the rocks.

I run as fast as I can to the land. When I’m in the Land, there’s a guy in the water. I think he’s standing in a tower of a city underwater, but it looks like the city is drowning. Every time a wave comes over him, he’s just standing in the water like a scarecrow in a garden.

I think he’s calling me; however, I was so scared because I did not want to lieve my family behind. So I ran to my family to check if they were okay because I felt they needed me. I’m not sure what to make of this dream.

Interpretation

Each character in the dream represents a part of your mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Water invariably goes with emotion. The ocean or a large body of water tends to go with the subconscious. The land tends to go with consciousness.

What the dream seems to be saying is that you’re being overwhelmed by emotion so much that it’s almost hard to stay civilized (the city, civilization, is drowning). It is actually good that you resist joining the man who is like a scarecrow in the water. The dream suggests that you run consciously to be with your family because they need you.

The dream may be saying or may be advising or may just be describing the situation where you resist being overwhelmed by emotion and take care of your family.

The fact that the man in the water seems like a scarecrow implies that things you feel threatened by may just be a possibility and may not be all that real as long as you take precautions to ward off bad influences, like people who would prey on your crops, people who would consume what you produce in life.

What might getting a new car from your mother mean in a dream?

picture_20170105_142115491

Dream 453: Renewed Genesis of Life

A woman had the following dream:

“Last night I had a dream about my mother and I haven’t dreamed of her in quite a while in the dream she and I went to an auto body repair shop to get the front end of my truck repaired and painted (minor accident)so the guy was explaining the process and said it would only cost about $500 for the repair I said fine let’s do it. I went to the restroom and came back the guy said let’s finalize the paperwork so we can get started my mother looked at me and said it’s taken care of I said are you sure she said yes I said thank you and say down.

A few minutes later the guy comes and say you are all set and had a me the keys but I don’t see the key to my truck and mom is standing there looking around and I say to him my key is missing and he shows me another key and says this is your car. I look at my mom and she says I took care it of it. She really took care of it she traded my truck and bought me a new Genesis fully paid for. I hugged her and cried and that hug felt so real I couldn’t let go. We got in the car and left.

Not sure what this means but any help is greatly welcomed…”

Interpretation 

A vehicle usually represents your progress in life in a dream. In any case, your mother usually represents the basis of your emotions. The dream may be saying that your emotions have been repaired.

You may be making some kind of shift from work or the financial part of your life (the truck) to focusing on the beginning of a new area (a Genesis) for your life.
The dream may also be integrating mother emotions.

The fact that the hug felt so real implies a vision dream where you were visited. All in a place, it sounds like a reparative and emotionally integrating dream that wants to give you a new vehicle to enjoy a different area of your life.

Functional Healing from Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds

MS Healing Post 1:

The Thunder-clap 
 
I was having trouble with my eyesight. Double vision was new for me. I was dropping things I held for no reason. My balance was unsteady and I would sometimes fall down seemingly for no reason. My wife, being the board certified psychiatrist that she is, insisted that I consult with a neurologist.  Numerous tests and procedures were performed (to be described later). It was time for us to meet with the good doctor and hear the results.
When we went to obtain the results, the neurologist mumbled a few words at me and looked down at the floor while he spoke. I processed nothing of what he was saying to me. Repression is a remarkable phenomenon. He met with my wife for what seemed like a long time. Driving back from the doctor’s office to Arizona State University Student Health where my wife was the psychiatrist on the eating disorders team, Debby was uncharacteristically quiet.
When we drove into Student Heath and I stopped the car to let her out, I found out why.
“Well, I guess we will keep trying to figure out what is going on with me,” I said with resignation. “What are you talking about? The MS looks severe,” she said. Deborah never suffered a fool well.
“MS?” I innocently queried.
With disbelief Dr. Deborah Brogan said, “Didn’t he tell you that you have MS, multiple sclerosis?”
“What?” I asked.
Debby, answered, “You heard me. The doctor said you have multiple sclerosis.”
So it began, my fifteen-year journey through purgatory. I thought I must have made serious mistakes in a previous life. At the time it seemed as good an explanation as any for why I contracted multiple sclerosis, MS.
It turns out that I probably contracted multiple sclerosis because of conditions I endured in this lifetime which would include the cold climate I was born into in the Midwest, abuse as a child, drinking too much diet coke with aspartame, frequently having bronchitis, genetics, getting into a car accident when I was a 31-year-old, working out in a hot karate studio, etc. MS is a syndrome which I believe is ignited by a host of various factors coming together. I believe it to be the exception, rather than the rule, for multiple sclerosis in a particular person to be due mainly to only one causative factor. I think that is why MS must be fought on numerous fronts—it probably was caused by the totality of your life and now is affecting every aspect of your life.
At the time, I thought that I just wanted to return to my old self, the “I” your ego thinks of you as being. I never accepted the MS as being the real me. It was an adversary sent to test the real me. Little did I know how much my real self was going to change because of the battle, no the war, with multiple sclerosis.

What does surgery and metal left in your body mean in a dream?

fitness-woman-drinking-detox-smoothie-relaxed-workout-rest-spring-summer-beautiful-fit-girl-taking-rest-city-park-40173958

Dream 450: Testing your metal

A woman dreams that she went through surgery that she did not want to have. The surgeons left metal in her body. She thought the dream was weird and wondered what it could mean.

Interpretation 

When doctors and hospitals are involved, the dream almost invariably is about healing. Surgery is dramatic healing which has a downside and benefits. Hopefully, the benefits outweigh the downside.

Metal left in the body can indicate new strength or it also can represent hard feelings/rigidity. She was a young woman in her twenties who had recently gone through a dramatic therapeutic intervention in the sense of detoxing. She alsowent through therapy and was given medication.

The dream, I believe, was a reflection of her not liking the intense treatment she went through. The experience had “tested her metal.” The metal left behind was her hard feelings over the ordeal, but the experience had made her stronger  (strong as steel).

I Love Dreams which are the most direct voice of the subconscious

20161210_174239

I remind myself at work that dreams are the most direct way to get to the bottom of root conflicts and psychodramas. Dreams still surprise me as they are often counterintuitive and saying what you don’t want to hear necessarily.

What does sand, your father, a plum tree, and orangutans represent in a dream?

 

orangutan-1358638

Dream 447: Stopping Monkeying Around 

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream last night. In the dream there was a plum tree with 5 orangutans.  They had their  backs to me. Then my father picked me up and ran with me because there was a lot of sand coming at us from behind. Then we tumbled and I was carrying my father. Then we ran to a truck and rode the sand waves.
What’s this mean ?”

Interpretation

This is a very interesting dream. A tree is a symbol of integration because its roots grow in the ground, it opens to the sky, and it is here on the level with us. The plum tree has several meanings in my world. First off, a plum is a fruit and a food that nurtures you. Also a plum is usually something especially appealing like a plum job.

I would guess that the orangutans are barriers to getting something favorable that nurtures you. Animals usually represent instincts, the dreamer’s instincts. In this case, I think the dream is signaling that too much monkeying around is keeping you from getting something you want that would be favorable to you like a plum position of some kind. I think the orangutan instinct is interfering because I think it represents “monkeying around.”

Sand usually represents impermanence as it can be blown around and it never provides a solid foundation. You do not want to just build sand castles as goals in your life to my way of thinking. From that standpoint, it can be seen as insecurity.

Your father in the dream represents an action part of your mind as men tend to go with actions. Fathers most often are the basis of your actions to some degree. Your carrying your father might mean that you need to be supportive of your actions you are taking to avoid being insecure and wanting to build your future into a more secure and semi-permanent situation. You may want to build something in your life that is not subject to the shifting sands of time.

It also has significance that there are five orangutans. In my world, five usually represents adding something on to your stable self (4 is a stable number and five is literally adding something to your stable self as 1+4=5.

I think the dream is wanting you to take life more seriously, stop monkeying around, and support your actions towards building something more permanent in your life.

In my world, trucks are associated with work and you escape the sand on a truck. I think the dream is saying that you have to work to build a future worth having.

What does carrying a bag or luggage aboard an airplane with your son mean in a dream?

id-100437911Image courtesy of 9comeback at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Dream 446: Wondering about carrying my baggage into the future

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream that I was at an airport waiting to be called for my flight.Then I was called,and I got up and picked up my black bag.I think I was traveling with my youngest son…”

Interpretation 

There is something almost spiritual about flight and usually has to do with your overall life goals. Picking up a bag could mean that you were worried about carrying “baggage” into your future. That your youngest son is in the dream usually means that you’re probably considering making some fairly major change. Each person in a dream is usually a part of your mind at the first level. Boys tend to go with actions while girls usually go more with emotions. That isn’the absolute, but is usually the case.

You are probably worried about how “baggage” from the past might affect that move. Unless you actually have a black bag, the color in this case could signal being worried about negative or depressing baggage being carried into your future. The type of action you may be considering would be related to the personality of your youngest son.

It is also possible that it is the condensation of two levels of the dream in the sense that the decision could involve your youngest son in some sense or how it would affect him. Again, the main thing is taking some action for your overall life goes intowards  the future and being worried about carrying baggage into the future and how that baggage might affect your future.

The dreamer later indicated that she had been looking for a job and was wondering how that would affect her and her youngest son’s future.

What could taking a boat joyfully across a lake of crocodiles mean?

two-crocodiles

Dream 445: Looking for my ambition

 A man dreamed he was joyful as he was crossing a lake on a boat. The lake was full of crocodiles. Nevertheless, he was thrilled to be on the boat.

Interpretation 

Water virtually always represents emotions in dreams. Crocodiles usually signal aggressive emotions or instincts. The aggression is the shadow side of this emotion. The positive side is that it also represents your “get up and go,” your desire to accomplish things.

You can use that aggressive energy for positive purposes. The other parts of the personality just need to put some limits on the shadow aspect of that aggressive Energy.

I view this dream positively. I feel that he is setting out on a voyage to find the “get up and go” to accomplish positive things for himself and the world.

What does a diamond represent in a dream?

1478152806144-1122606224

Dream 443: A diamond is forever

A woman dreamed that she was walking along and she noticed the diamond was missing from her finger. She thought she had lost it. A young boy then came up to her with the ring and gave the ring back to her.

Interpretation 

Each character in the dream represents a different part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Men tend to go with actions or a more action-oriented part of the mind. Women tend to go more with an emotional part of the psyche.

The maturity level of the character in the dream usually represents how developed either the action or the emotion is. That it was a young boy who returns the ring to her means that she is probably taking new action to confirm a commitment, an allegiance, a loyalty,  a close relationship, or even a job.

It is unknown whether this dream describes the current state of affairs or whether the dream is predictive. Only the dreamer will be able to discern the full meaning of this dream.

What do lions mean in a dream?

images

Dream 442: Your Inner Lions

I had a dream about a group of lions: A female and male leader, two males, two females and a lion cub. They were watching me from a cliff or a ledge. Then, they crawled down and started to run. As they ran , images of everything that has been bothering me appeared in the sky(weight, suicidal thoughts, hurt, etc). Finally they lead me to a cave, and the images in the sky disappeared. I followed them to a beautiful grotto inside the cave.

Then the lioness stood there on top of a hill near the opening of the grotto. Like she was waiting for me to follow her. I followed and we sat near a waterfall that was flowing into a lake. There were glowing fireflies and butterflies around us.

She spoke, and said to “release it”. I crawled over to the lake and threw up continuously into the lake.

She told me the animal kingdom is calling to me and that I must pay attention and listen to what the animals are telling me in my dreams.
She is one of the first but there will be many others that will help me in this difficult time.

After wards, I woke up at 3 am in the morning to throw up. And for the rest of the day I felt sick.

Does this have a deep meaning?

Interpretation

Yes, this is a deep dream or “big dream.” Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. Having a lot of animals is a good sign that you have a lot of subconscious emotional energy you can use.

You have a plethora of lions within you. Lions usually go with strength and courage. Your subconscious is saying that you have balanced energy potentials as there are an even number of adult males and females. Males tend to go with action potentials while females tend to go with emotional energy.

The dream makes a strong case that your worries are not real and are just floating in the sky. Going into a cave typically represents going into your subconscious. Water is virtually always emotion. The dream is saying, I believe, that you have a spring well of flowing positive emotions you can use to refresh yourself.

The cub lion is present because the dream wants you to grow in inner strength and courage even more. Vomiting is getting rid of things making you sick. I believe your subconscious wants you to rid yourself of toxic emotions that are making you sick.

Your inner lioness is urging you to use your instincts and to go with your gut feelings as much as you can given other factors.

Can dreams help you make decisions about moving or getting another job?

Being Conservative Is Hard on My Head

A 36-year-old fine arts professor dreamt that he was on the patio of a Mexican restaurant. There was a wasp’s nest above the kidney shaped bar. Suddenly, a wasp flew down and stung him in the head. The dream shifted to him listening to a waittress. She was telling him about a long sordid affair she had with a professor.

Dream Interpretation

This professor recently received job offers from colleges in Ohio and California. WASP also stands for White Anglo Saxon Protestant. I asked him which college was more conservative. He replied that the college in Ohio was much more conservative and he did not know if it would tolerate his avant-garde teaching style and research. I asked him what he associated with Mexican restaurants, and he replied California. I asked him what was the biggest mistake he ever made in his field, and he replied that he regretted a decision not to attend a college in California. That she, the waittress had a sordid affair with a professor indicated that his emotions (the waitress) had been untrue to his intellectual decisions (the male professor)—this was highlighted by the fact that he regretted not going to college in California/

The dream voted in the direction of the college in California. His subconscious exclaimed that a conservative atmosphere was hard on his head and thinking. A restaurant in a dream nurtures one psychologically, and the dream is saying that, for him, California is much more likely to be nurturing.

The female waittress is a part of his work emotions. In dreams, a waittress is often seen as “one who waits.” He told me consciously that his biggest career mistake was not attending a learning institution in California. The waittress is talking about an emotional mistake with a professor. The dream is warning him about making sincere and solid emotional connections. The dream is screaming that he needs to attend a learning institution in California.

What does an anaconda mean in a dream?

maxresdefault

Dream 438: Stopping the Change

I dreamed I was walking, heading to a village, where I have a piece of land I own/where i was born. While I was heading there, an ordinary person told me I can not pass by because a gaint snake is blocking the path/road. He was giving a warning. I wasn’t afraid so I continued. Then on the way, the giant green snake(anaconda) climbed down, unwrapping himself from a tree, rushing towards me. I grabbed a piece of wood. I hit it in the face. The snake fell back and then tries again, so I hit it again in the face and then he was knocked out for good. That’s where the dream ends… what could his mean?.

Interpretation

A snake usually represents change senses one of the few animals to completely shed its skin. This Anaconda is a big aggressive snake. My guess is the change has something to do with the land.

That is, someone or something may be going to try to aggressively change the village and/or land plot that you own but you are going to stop it. I do not know you so this is speculation.

What does a fraternity, Donald Trump, and a baby dying mean in a dream?

download

Dream 434: Dump Trump

A woman had the following dream:

“Oh wow…I was in what seemed to be a frat house. Some young guy was complaining about all the hoes at the party. I went upstairs to go to the bathroom and saw a man coming towards the house with a black object/machine/vacuum in his hands, although the dream itself blocked out what it really was. Then BOOM, the entire house was decimated, no one left, even a small baby had been killed. Only people on the porch survived and this is where I was.  Then a woman came by and my brother and we had to sign papers. Then I saw the ghost of that baby because I was sad it had died too.

Then I saw another man in a vision in front of people in a city like new york square setting. He was dressed in black with red acting crazy with some kind of message for me. Then another guy dressed in black in another place i cannot remember yet was very clear in this dreamline…

Dream 435: Dump Trump

Every person in the dream is a part of your mind. Men go with your actions. A frat house is a Brotherhood of educated men who Goof Off a lot in my world. In the dream, they are anti-women, which means they are anti-emotional as women tend to go more with your emotions while men tend to go more with your actions.

These men are all off including a baby. I think the dream may be saying you need to get rid of any actions that are even unintentionally derogating to women. The baby is included because it is saying you have to get rid of even any tiny notion that might not be in favor of emotions or women.

The speaker in New York is obviously Donald Trump. The dream isn’t being clear about the two men. I suspect strongly that one of them was Donald Trump. I suspect the other man was the opposite of Donald Trump, what your actions preferably could be.

This extremely biased opinion was not paid for and I agree with its content. It is speculation of what I think is likely and humorous comments may also be true, but there is no way of definitely knowing.

The dreamer later told me after the interpretation that she and her daughter had been having major debates about Trump’s misogynist view of women.

What does death, a mustache, trees and sawdust mean in a dream?

20160810_125921

Dream 432: Cut It Out!

A woman had the following dream:

“I don’t know if daydreams matter much, yet i have been having episodes of some awful things that i am seeing, just for a few moments that i see them, yet this most recent one has me freaked out: I see someone (both male) cutting off the mustache hair and then put into the mouth of the other guy who is bound? with what also seems like sawdust?….whatever could such a weird scene mean? At first I thought I am seeing an ’embalmment’ from ancient times, yet there was a new pair of scissors…..

Interpretation

Each character in the dream is a part of your mind usually. At the first level, men represent an action part of the mind. Mustaches are worn almost exclusively by man and are used to look better and more mature. It really has no function other than to improve looks, it is optional to wear and usually represents pure ego.

Sawdust comes from trees. Trees are symbols of integration because its roots reach down into the Earth, it opens up to the sky, and it is here on the level.

You mentioned that it almost seems like an embalming process. When there is death involved of which the sawdust represents the Dead part of the tree also, usually the dream is indicating that there’s a deep personal change that must occur .

I believe the dream is saying that there is a part of your actions being performed to look good that are destroying your integration and must die.

In no uncertain terms (the scissors lying around) it is saying to cut it out (the mustache is cut off)! The good news is that there are two men in the dream and the man cutting the mustache off represents the part of you that realizes you must stop some action you are doing mainly just to look good.

What do Tigers, trucks, kitchens, upstairs and a leash mean in a dream?

widescreen_tiger-wide

Dream 429: Keeping My Shadow on a Leash

A woman had the following dream:

“I don’t remember all of the dream but it was a tiger in my dream.  The tiger was already like a pet in the dream, the tiger was already a part of the house.  I think I was cooking fish or salmon.    When I went downstairs with the food, the tiger was following me and looking strange with his mouth.  It scared me so I ran upstairs to my family.

I was telling them, “okay, we got to get rid of this tiger because I don’t feel safe anymore.” So the Tiger followed me up the steps and went into my closet and fell on my brother that is deceased and my oldest brother’s talking.  They went into the next room, and when my deceased brother came out, he said it won’t happen again.  He said, “I promise this won’t happen ever again about the tiger” as if he were the one who brought the tiger there, but then tiger was gone.  Then I was outside, I was like near a road.  A truck went by and, lo and behold, it was a tiger laying on the back of the truck….

Interpretation

Animals usually represent our instincts in dreams. A tiger is a very powerful symbol. It usually is good to have powerful animals in your dreams because it means you have a lot of instinctive energy in your subconscious.

This tiger may represent the shadow side of your instincts to some degree, but it is a very well-controlled Shadow. You have it on a leash. I believe part of the concern is you don’t want to feed the energy of the Shadow for fear it might get out of hand and harm you.

A house can represent the dreamer to some extent because it is a framework out of which you live. When you move from upstairs to downstairs you’re basically moving from your brain to the kitchen which is basically a place of nurture and creativity. You expressly do not want to feed the Tiger. You don’t want to give more energy to your Shadow side even though it’s well-controlled.

I am guessing that at least one of the brothers represents the heroic masculine. This is good news because it’s used to represent a spiritual dimension since one of them is deceased. Your heroic masculine archetype, the part of you the does helpful and positive things for yourself and others, apologizes for bringing the spirit of the tiger to your consciousness to the point where it scares you. One might say it scares you to death almost.

The dream ends with the deceased brother promising you that it won’t happen again. But you know the way Shadows are, they just don’t go easy. You see the tiger pass by on the truck after you think you’ve gotten rid of it.

The dream is reassuring you that you can’t just get rid of your shadow. You need your shadow, particularly in situations like work which I think is represented by the truck because trucks usually do work-related things. Your Shadow is also your get-up-and-go, it just needs contact with other parts your personality so it doesn’t get out of control.

What do guns, shooting and robbery mean in a dream?

Dream 427: Violence Begets Violenceimages (2)

A woman reported the following dream:

“I had a dream about a friend involving a robbery and gun shots were fired towards her and I. When I later talked to her about it, she said 2 other friends had dreams of her either as the one doing the shooting or was being shot at. What do guns in dreams mean? Also, it’s so weird how several people had similar themed dreams about one person. Any ideas? Shes kinda freaked out by it. Some insights would be much appreciated!”

Interpretation 

Guns usually are associated with aggression or confrontation. Freud thought of it as a classic phallic symbol so it is associated with being Macho–rough and tough and not taking anything from anyone.

With your friend, I wonder if she tends to be confrontation or aggressively assertive to the point that she inspires retaliation and/or bursts of emotions from others. The thought would be that she is subject to confrontations/burst of emotions which she points at others and is reciprocated by others.

If we look at just your dream, shots are being fired at you. You are not instigating any gunplay in the dream you had. The focus of your dream would seem to be other people’s explosive reactions to you at times for no clear reason. In your dream, the robbery would maybe indicate some worry about being personally violated.

The collective unconscious means that we are all connected subconsciously with one another. When she has several friends dreaming about guns with her involved, I would take it that the collective subconscious is trying to get the message to her by whatever means possible that she needs to be protective of herself and assertive / aggressive / confrontative in a different kind of way so that she or others do not get hurt either emotionally or physically.

What are Power Animals in dreams?

FB_IMG_1463332685368

Dream image 424: Power animals
In dreams, animals represent a part of the dreamers instincts. Basically, when you ask what a particular person’s power animal is, you are asking what instincts are particularly effective, relevant and salient for that person in their situation now. By getting in touch with their power animal, the thought is that the dreamer will be able to use the most effective part of their instinctive energy to help them in their life now consciously.

The maze is a compelling metaphor for life in dreams. We all have to make decisions and avoid dead-ends and seek to find our way out in the sense of letting different aspects of ourselves out into the world. There are many parts of your personality that want to survive and be recognized in the world. They are in competition with one another because there’s only so much you can do in a lifetime.

What does grey, two people, a bed, and a dog mean in a dream?

white-dog-comforter-bed.jpg.653x0_q80_crop-smart

Dream 419: Sealing My Emotions
A woman reported the following dream:
“I cannot remember the beginning of the dream however I dreamed about a toy dog…grey..in a normal bed…but alive !!
Two people were on each side of the bed moving him into another place (a room) where the toy dog will be more comfortable. I kissed him from his cheek with passion, assuring him that he will be ok. My lipstick left a mark on his cheek. He shook his head with appreciation and made a noise. I was neither happy or sad. Thank for the help in interpreting.”

Interpretation

The two people involved implies a couple so it’s probably relationship issues. It probably involves sexual issues since a bed is involved. Pets usually go with our affections. Dogs in particular tend to go with feelings of loyalty.

That the dog is grey means that there are some Shades of Grey in the relationship.
The fact that it is a toy dog means it may involve someone who toys with your affections and loyalty or emotions that you may initially not take seriously.

Your kissing him in the dream seals the deal in my world that you are wanting a relationship where people are loyal to one another. This also involves accepting shades of grey within yourself emotionally. It seems like it would imply that you are more likely to be appreciated and have a good relationship if you accept Shades of Grey as all relationships have their positive and negative moments.

The dog being grateful I think means that you will be very much appreciated for your loyalty in spite of the shades of grey within yourself or within a relationship.

What does sex and kissing men on the forehead mean in a dream?

74583113

 
Dream 413: She should have listened

A dreamer reported an ex girlfriend had a couples dreams of him one night. He wondered about the significance of the sea shell. The former girlfriend’s dream was as follows:

“I kept singing prayers into your ear and kissing your forehead after every one. Every time I did a new orb would appear and I’d have a vision of some place. You were holding sea shells”

” I was little and someone was reading a bedtime story while I gazed out the window into the dark woods when all of a sudden this freaky alien ripped me out of the house and into the woods.”nbsp;

Interpretation

Her singing to you and kissing dreamer’s forehead in the dream would mean that at the first level she’s praying to the action part of herself that loved him which is expressed by her kissing his forehead.

If it were my dream, the orbs would probably represent hopes regarding relationships. Orbs are round and are light and rocks are circular mostly. Circular objects, especially circular objects that are lighted usually represent the soul since the circle has no beginning and it has no end. The dream is suggesting that she’s dealing with soul issues.

If these dreams were together relatively, it seems to be about listening. The dream seems to be saying she has emotional wishes that she prays would come true, but probably really doesn’t listen to them very closely.

I think the above for two reasons, the first one being the seashells. When I was young it was always said that if you held a seashell to your ear you could hear the ocean. The ocean is the biggest symbol of the subconscious that we have. Symbolically, these seashells would represent listening to her subconscious, specifically, the part of her subconscious that dealt with dreamer.

The second reason to suspect it has to do with listening is that when she is read a bedtime story, she is not paying attention and is staring out into the dark woods.

The dream gets savage in emphasizing that she needs to listen and pay attention to her subconscious emotions by having an alien jerk her out of her world.

What do trees, food, and apples mean in a dream?

7tumblr_inline_novfvgsXZT1rq03ph_500

Dream 411: An Apple a Day

A man had the following dream:

“I dreamt of seeing a dense tree with an abundance of dense green leaves.
There was only one opening in the tree and in that opening there was an upside down red apple that looked and took the shape of a heart.
The opening of the tree was an opening in the dense foliage part of the tree as there were no branches to be seen.
One would think the heart would be found in the tree’s trunk.
Hmm… not this dream.”

Interpretation

A tree is a symbol of integration because it’s roots reach down far into the earth, it opens to the sky, and it is here with us on the level. It is also a symbol of growth especially when it has dense foliage.

This dream is saying the key to your integration is through your heart. Specifically, it is saying through opening your heart you will integrate the different levels of yourself. The heart chakra is where the higher chakras and the lower chakras meet.

Food is nurture in a dream. An apple is one of the healthiest things you can eat. I think the Apple is upside down because what would be nurturing to you is not clearly seen right now, it is upside down.

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to be open and flexible to what may be nurturing to you that doesn’t seem like it is sitting right, but it actually is the right thing for you.

What does it mean to give birth to Jesus in a dream?

Dream 410: Born again

A woman had the following dream:

“So I had a dream that I was the mother of Jesus, I looked like me but I didn’t at
the same time. My hair was longer and darker, my skin was darker, etc ..yet the
same exact eyes,lips,height, and curls. I was standing in a door way & I can feel
the Sun on my back as I look into the shaded small building. It looked like a very
small home (far from modern).
I can’t recall what was said.
The twist is I believe in God but I haven’t accepted Jesus as God. Im not saying
its impossible,because nothing is. I look into all religions & “mythologies”. When I
woke up I felt like I literally just slammed into my body,I had tears in my eyes and
this tingling in my heart.”

Interpretation

At the first and symbolic level of dream interpretation, an important spiritual and emotional part of you is standing at the doorway to a new life (a new house). You are literally being reborn
in the sense of giving birth to a new part of your spirituality. Your
emotions are getting ready to deliver a new spiritually active and central
part of yourself. This part is small now but important. One wants to
remember that Jesus was born in a manger.

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

tmp_31058-living-with-ghosts1444986176
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 do lightning, tornadoes and orbs mean in a dream?

tmp_32121-images(9)898518529

Dream 405: Fire and Fury of the Spirit

A man had the following dream:

“I had another one where a large tornado was in front of me, but this was an unusual tornado, because it had lightning inside of it and a large glowing orb on top of it. Which was where the lightning was coming from. It seemed like a quick dream, but it was the only one I could remember from that night.”

Interpretation

Tornadoes are a powerful natural force which like sex/relationships can sweep you off your feet and dramatically change your life. Lightning is a powerful natural force that implies instant electric change (lightning being electrified fire if you will). Circles are associated with the soul because they have no beginning and no end.

Orbs are circular light and there is a kind of spirituality or awe associated with them as in “I see the light.” This dream is either recognizing or predicting instant natural change from natural forces or relationships that disrupts your homeostasis and gives you a sense of almost spiritual awe.

What do birds and cardinals represent in a dream?

Is it safe to fly and change now?

Dream 403: Bird of Paradise Defies the Snake

A woman described the following dreams:

Two recent dream’s…
•One large cardinal in the forest..
•One large copperhead

The cardinal was abnormally large, sitting in a tree and I was watching it as it flew down.The snake was coiled at the bottom and errect facing me with its mouth open as I looked at its fangs and talked to someone about its poison.

Interpretation

Birds usually represent freedom, independence and taking flight in life. Snakes most often represent change. Snakes are one of the few animals to completely shed its skin. You may be trying to assess what dangers (fangs and poison) are involved in your taking flight in life. Cardinals are typically red. Red goes with love and intense emotions. Red is also the color that goes with our family chakra.

It sounds like you are trying to assess how much damage or change in your life is going to occur as you become more independent. It is likely that you are especially concerned on how it affects family emotions.

The cardinal being abnormally large probably means you are in the process of making big decisions regarding your independence and flight. The decision you make could be of Cardinal importance.

What does it mean when a deceased relative hugs you in a dream?

Dream Vision 402: Hang in There Baby

I dreamed hat my deceased brother-in-law hugged me as i was leaving the hospital after visiting my wife who was a patient there.

Interpretation

My wife was having a number of medical difficulties. She was hospitalized right before I had this dream. What was different about this dream was the feeling of touch. I had the feeling that I actually was physically hugged by him.

The deceased brother-in-law in the dream was a doctor in real life who was totally loved by his wife, family of eight children, and the world. He was a strong and empathetic healer. He gave encouragement and clear direction to all that knew him.

One major type of dream is what I call a vision dream. People typically report that they feel is more of a vision than a dream. I could vividly see him and had the sensation of being physically hugged.

What sets these dreams apart is the sensation part of it. The vision or seeing of the person seems more vivid. The sense of touch is usually filled which does not occur in many dreams actually.

Sometimes people indicate they can even smell the familiar person. The vivid image of him in extraordinary detail and the physical feeling of touch were in this dream. I usually do not have dreams like this.

It is memorable the few times they do happen. It always seems to be significant to what is happening in the outside world or in reality. On the other hand, what is the ultimate reality?

Theoretical physicists tell me that there are at least 10 dimensions plus time. We see only three of them. They say that it is all happening here right now . I believe that leaves a lot of room for spiritual interpretation of visions like this one.

Dreams: Nonfiction of the Subconscious

susbconcious

 

An insightful friend told me that dreams are “nonfiction of the subconscious.” It sounds paradoxical in a way, but it is not. Dreams most often take an unvarnished look at the way things really are in the dreamer’s life.

What we tell ourselves about life is frequently fiction. Dreams want the truth and give the dreamer truth in a mentally healthy person. Dreams most often see the underlying reality driving situations and motivating people.

Dreams often give nonfiction reality if they are interpreted correctly. Subconscious logic is different and takes considerable experience to be interpreted meaningfully. I always felt I gave adequate interpretations of dreams, but I did not really feel satisfied until after ten years experience. After twenty years of experience with clients, I felt I was giving truly beneficial interpretations.

Dreams: Guide to the Soul shows how I used thirty years of experience to develop an intuitive dream interpretation method. See http://www.drstevenfox.com

What do flying owls mean in a dream?

tmp_10135-$_35.JPG507946391

Dream 401:Wisely Finding Myself Spiritually

A woman reported the following dream:

“I have been having dreams of horned owls surrounding me. I have my hands and face up, and these owls are just flying around me. I am standing in a field and I am wearing a white dress and have really long hair. There’s a breeze and my hair is blowing around me. The owls are all different colors and sizes.” Someone please tell me what this signifies.”

Interpretation

Owls are associated with wisdom. Flying frequently signals spirituality or trying to reach spiritual goals. White is the most spiritual color that there is.

The way she is holding her hands is frequently seen at religious services. She is dressed in almost ceremonial garb with the wind blowing through her hair emphasizing naturalness and freedom.

The owls being different colors and sizes is important because colors represent different emotions. The size of the owl probably signifies the importance of different spiritual ideas.

Owls make the sound of “who.” I wonder if the dream is saying that you are wisely trying to find out who you are at a spiritual level, what thoughts, ideas, and feelings are important to you.

What does a baby boy not being able to move and falling on your face mean in a dream?

Fear of falling on your face if you do something new

 

Dream 401: Should I Make This New Move?

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a strange dream that I had put my infant baby on a bed all in white and so was the baby. Just the exact way they wrap them in a hospital, then a lady said to me your baby fell on the floor laying flat face, and I went that way to get him. How strange a infant can’t move wrapped that way, he was not crying either. So confused on this dream.”

My Interpretation

Clothing usually represents your psychological defenses. A baby boy usually represents a new action part of yourself. The dream seems to be implying there is a new action part yourself that is severely limited and bound with limited options. You may have tried to do something different and either have or have fear of “falling on your face.”

What does an aggressive baby and a prizefighter mean in a dream?

Feisty Baby

Dream 400: Change without hurting who you are

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a nightmare…. I was in a mall and people kept coming up the escalator covered in blood. I didnt pay any attention to them until my deceased uncle came up the excalator and said do something. Then at that point I went looking for who was hurting the people and it turned out to be a baby ! So I stabbed this baby with an unusual tool, and the baby fell to the ground and then got back up again and I kept jabbing the baby in the neck….at that point I woke up feeling very disturbed.”

My Interpretation

Each person in a dream represents a part of your mind. Men tend to go with your actions while women tend to go with your emotions. Having a baby in a dream means that this is a new part of yourself that you are developing.

Developing this new part of yourself is causing all kinds of commotion in your life and is changing you symbolized by the innocent people being hurt in the mall. You want to get rid of it, but it is persistent and wants to live in you.

It is interesting that your uncle was a prize fighter. One would think his advice would go something like “keep this part in line, and don’t let it hurt any other parts of you.” So you have to keep this newer feisty part of you in line so that it does not hurt who you have been.

What does a handicapped man with canes mean in my dream?

tmp_14995-dream_of_future954998894
Insight from Dreams

Dream 399: The best place to look for insight  is often within yourself

I dreamed that I walked with canes in both hands. I was on the television show and I was being encouragedby the moderator to write about my experiences.

My interpretation

I had multiple sclerosis for 15 years starting in 1991. I had a severe case that eventually was diagnosed as primary progressive MS, the worst form of multiple sclerosis MS that you can have.  I wore a brace on my right leg  and  used a cane  and had to use a wheelchair to be transported about the airport  onto an airplane.

I went through a radical medical treatment which in combination with alternative methods and with the help of dreams sent the MS into remission. I use both Eastern and Western techniques because I believe that when you have a major chronic illness like multiple scerosis, you have to throw everything you can at it. I believe that some of my methods may help others with MS and also may generalize to other chronic illnesses in some cases.

I think the dream was encouraging me and publicize it on a mass market basis because of the involvement of television. I think the images of the canes, which I no longer use, were in the dream to remind me of the remarkable transformation.
