My Created Family Died

drugs_kill_dreams_sticker

Dream 259: An eighteen-year-old male dreamed that he was in a house with a family. They all went upstairs to find the body of a dead young man underneath a bed. Everyone in the family was very upset.

Interpretation: He recently found out that his best friend moved away and no longer had contact with the dreamer because he was addicted to crack cocaine. The dreamer was close to his friend’s family who said they considered him to be part of the family. The subconscious treats the loss of a close friendship as equal to death.

The above is dream interpretation at the second or interpersonal level. The interpreter has to know what is going on in the dreamer’s life at this level. At the first level, each character in the dream represents a part of the dreamer’s psyche or mind. This is both usually more difficult and often more rewarding than the interpersonal level which is more surface circumstances than unconscious processes.

At the first level of dream interpretation, the family represented  the various parts of his mind that wanted membership in his best friend’s family. The young man’s dead body symbolized his hope that he would actually be a part of a created loving family was dead. He was very upset by his friend’s addiction. When, as in this case, both levels of dream interpretation are true, we say that dream condensation occurred.

Incidentally, alcohol decreases dreams and marijuana virtually eliminates dreams.

I am finishing my personal story and sojourn to health by putting MS into remission with the help of the universe/God. It will be my second book showing that dreams were an important part of that journey. My personal psychology enters into the picture a lot. I basically see years of physical abuse as laying the foundation for having the foundation for contracting the chronic illness of multiple sclerosis. Amazon will publish it first as an ebook. The name of the book will be something like MS Mission Remission: Healing Severe Chronic Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds.

Check Emotions at the Door

Dream 223: Check Your Emotions at the Door

An executive dreamt that he left his former workplace which was a commercial building. As he walked outside it became a residential home like the house that his best friends owned. He walked to the house next door which was a thatched shanty like his bipolar ex-wife owned.

He decided not to go inside. He went back his former workplace and entered in a different and new doorway. The female vastly underemployed security guard was fastidiously checking through multiple papers to see if he could return.

Dream 223–Interpretation

The setting of the dream often indicates what issues the dream wishes to address. We know that this dream primarily deals with his work life because of reference to a commercial building. He was on disability for a year and was getting restless.

He did not feel that he could return to work fully. He was offered contract work on projects that he could work on from home, i.e., he could telecommute. The dream is screaming that he could benefit from working from home.

Each character in a dream represents a different part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Men are usually associated with an action part of the psyche. Women typically signal an emotional part of the mind.

 

A house can represent the dreamer to some extent because it is the framework out of which the dreamer lives. In this dream, the different houses or buildings represent different aspects of his life, i.e. his employment, mental health and home life. The dream encourages working from home by showing the house of his two best friends he had growing up that married each other in life.

Marriage is a sign of integration of actions with emotions. He basically says no to depression by not entering the shanty since it was owned by his mentally ill ex-wife. The dream indicates he is integrating actions and emotions that are friends.

The female guard is the emotional part of himself that was concerned with his security. He was vastly underutilized like the security guard was. The dream is screaming that he needs to check his emotions, like the female security guard, to decide what projects to accept for his own security. The dream advises that he now should take a different approach to work, i.e., that he enter work through a new and different doorway.
