Dream 270: Learning to Say No

date-rape-drugDream 270: Learn to Say No
A 22-year-old female college sophomore dreamed that a slick and fast talking lawyer was trying to talk her into investing in a dubious deal. She then had the scene of entering a classroom and the students were voting about whether they should each receive an injection of a drug that would hypnotize the recipient. The dream shifted to her at a busy nightclub. Her mother was in one corner of the nightclub urging her to ingest ketamine, the date rape drug. The dreamer was disgusted with her mother’s advice.
Interpretation
The slick lawyer was the embodiment of the Trickster archetype. Archetypes are patterns of thought common in culture that are passed on through human consciousness. The trickster is often a wheeler-dealer manipulator who gets what he wants. The dreamer was influenced too much by tricksters both financially and socially.
The classroom scene emphasized that there were many parts of herself (each character in the dream is a part of the dreamer’s mind) that expressly do not want to be hypnotized or controlled by other. That this occurs in a classroom emphasized that she should not be swayed by others to ignore what she has learned.
The final scene emphasized that her tendency to go along with others wants came from her mother. Mom was excessively giving to the point that she was often used by others with sometimes disaster results. Her disgust was actually a good sign that the dreamer was going to be more careful in social or dating situations.

Drugs Be Gone

In a nonpsychotic person, the subconscious tries to protect the person and even gives advice during dreams. This appears to especially be the case with drugs. I have never seen a situation where the dream showed approval for hard drug abuse.

A 28-year-old woman dreamed that she was spitting out shards of glass. Crystal meth is sometimes called “glass.”  She recently was trying to detox herself from crystal meth. Spit is a form of water. Water almost always represents emotion.

The act of spitting indicates that the person needs to expel something from the body. The dream was advising her to throw crystal meth out of her body. The dream especially emphasized the negative effect crystal meth was having on her emotions.

Don’t Be a Hero


Dream 199: Might as Well Face It You’re Addicted to Love

Heroine on Heroin
Heroine on Heroin

A 24-year-old male dreamt that he was giving his brother shots of heroin in the leg to prevent his brother from having extreme withdrawal symptoms.

Dream 198 Interpretation

I aked him whether he was having trouble with a girlfriend. He indicated that he recently broke up with a woman who was having addiction to drug problems. The fact that the way many people pronounce heroin as “heroine” was a major clue. You are entering the world of fantastic ideation in dreams where clang associations and extreme concreteness paradoxically exist in the same space as spiritual desires.

I asked him what his brother’s personality was like. His brother was the embodiment of the heroic masculine archetype, always helping and protecting those he loved. The dreamer’s desire was to save the beautiful now ex-girlfriend. The dream, like most dreams, is perfect in the sense that while the girlfriend was addicted to drugs, the dreamer was addicted to the girlfriend.

He literally went through withdrawal breaking up with the girlfriend as he was focused on saving her. It is notable that the sound of the word heroin (heroine) clued this dream interpreter in to the idea that the heroic masculine was probably involved. In the dream he is literally trying to spare his own heroic masculine from experiencing withdrawal symptoms from the dreamer’s addiction to the drug addicted girlfriend. Legs in a dream involve the issue of support as legs support us physically. The dream was urging him to withdraw his support from the substance plagued girlfriend.
