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.

Dream 222: Killing the Idea of Going On Disability

A 42-year-old man dreamt that he was walking with his 8-year-old daughter down a path. They came upon a rattlesnake that looked threatening. He killed the rattlesnake and gave the rattlesnake’s rattlers to his daughter which she used as a play toy.

Dream 222–Interpretation

He was an engineer for many years. He quit when his anxiety became unmanageable after he was given an exceedingly critical supervisor. He went on short-term disability. He decided for many reasons not to go back to engineering. He then went to college to become a physician’s assistant.

He did not like the effect disability had on his emotions nor did he like the example it was setting for his children. Each animal, human, creature or spirit represents a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. The path represented his path in life.

Snakes in particular represent change, as they are one of few animals that completely shed their skin. In this case, it signaled the massive change in family life that the disability threatened to entrench. The dream was saying thst he needed to change his path in life. He frankly killed the idea of going on disability.

His daughter in this dream represented the Divine Child archetype which were his hopes and dreams. He decided to go into a healing profession which was the medical field. It is notable that snakes are also often associated with healing (think of the two snakes encircling a staff which is the symbol for the American Medical Association). His giving the rattlers to his daughter to play with as a toy suggested that he would even find these massive changes in his life fun.
