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.

What is the Divine Child archetype in dreams?

Dream 367: Giving the Divine Child archetype some spiritual courage
A young man had the following dream in his own words:

“I was walking beside a girl in a part of my dream last night. She was very sweet. As we were walking into a building I felt a presence behind her.

I looked back and there was a woman dressed in dark holding a gun to her.

I put my hand on the spine of the girl I was beside and humbly whispered ‘in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.’

Nothing more

Nothing less

And in that moment a light flashed over the girl with the gun and she put it down and said in a similar tone as mine when I spoke. She said ‘thank you.’

I smirked at her in a loving but strong way and walked the girl into the building she was going into.”

Interpretation

Assuming that the girl was a child, it was probably the Divine Child archetype. The Divine Child carries all our hopes, dreams and wishes for the future, like Jesus Christ did. It often is a blue-eyed blonde-haired little girl between the ages of 3 and 11. It can be other physical features, but these are the most frequent in our culture.

The girl as a Divine Child archetype would represent positive emotions and hoped for plans for the future. Women usually represent an emotional part of the dreamer. A woman with a gun is shadow aggressive/negative emotions.

The dreamer put his hand on her spine and say something very spiritual. The dream is saying that strong spirituality helps him stand up to negative emotions, it helps him have more spine.

The dreamer in the dream is acting as the heroic masculine which is usually the part of the personality that is involved in healing. It takes the action necessary to heal the person or make them better. In this case, the heroic masculine is lending his strength to Divine Child emotionality so that his plans can be actualized and come into reality.

When the Heroic Masculine lends it’s strength in performing healing action to the Divine Child, the Self can only say “thank you” that Shadow emotions were overcome and vanquished.

My Life Might Suck

Dream 208: My Life Might Suck

A 33-year-old man dreamt that he was being examined by his doctor. The doctor unexpectedly put a suction cup on the dreamer’s stomach to listen to it closely. The doctor then put the suction cup inside the dreamer’s mouth to examine his insides. The doctor acted like he knew what he was doing.

Dream 208 Interpretation

The doctor represented the healthy and therapeutic part of his psyche that wanted to “cure” the dreamer. Basically, the healing part of himself implied that it was vital that he have guts  (the stomach) and speak the truth (examining his mouth and insides).
