Dream 501: A Spiritual Thank You!

A woman had the following dream:

I have with a dream question that I can’t figure out–it’s a fairly simple dream, just wondering if this has a big meaning. A bald eagle was flying high and stopped mid-air to kiss me on the forehead. I woke up feeling extremely peaceful. I trust that it means something good because of how it felt. I am a super vivid dreamer…

Interpretation

Animals are typically our instincts in dreams. The eagle is a very powerful symbol. It typically represents freedom and independence. The eagle is a discerning hunter with keen sight.

Flying in dreams is almost spiritual and usually means things are changing or moving in your world in a big way. The kiss on the forehead probably means that you have made a decision or will make a decision that fiercely protects and promotes your world. It is particularly rewarding your intellect or wisdom.

It is an all-embracing approval of your using your head to defend your world which is spiritually uplifting. No wonder it was such a pleasing dream!

Vivid dreams are usually important emotionally and often have spititual connotations. Her subconscious and/or spirit was very pleased with her decisions.

The Savage Giant

Dream 475: Slaying evil aggression

A man described the following dream:

I don’t remember much of this dream, but it was so unusual that I’ll post it:
It took place in a large building with a church, and people lived there. Sounds like a convent, but it was mixed sex. There was a giant that oppressed the people, a giant tyrant lol. Now it was my task to kill the giant!

It was one of those dreams in which I can fly and go through walls and ceilings etc. I went through the whole building, from the bottom (crypt) to the top. Eventually there was the confrontation with the giant, in the church part. I flew up to his head, and rammed a big sword in his eye. The giant fell down, I had done my job.

 Interpretation
 The giant probably represents the savage masculine archetype. This dream may be about using aggression for good purposes. Flying in the dream means that you are feeling personal power.  A convent or church connotes sacred commitment.
The church indicates that it may be your own sacred duty to subdue excessive aggression within yourself; however, the dream I think gives you high marks for using aggression to eliminate savagery.

What do flying owls mean in a dream?

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 flying, robots, babies and your mom criticizing you in a dream mean?

Robots, Flying and Kids

Dream 334: I’m Ready to Fly (almost)

A career woman dreamed that she was flying like superwoman. A flying robot was flying after her trying to catch her, which he never did. It was like having to escape from the flying robot helped her to learn to fly better.

She saw a festival and went down to feast before returning to flying. She could hear her mother saying that she should go home and take care of her babies instead of partying and flying around. The dreamer felt resentment that she had to stop flying to take care of her babies (the dreamer had no children in real life.)

Interpretation

Flying implies that the dreamer is feeling personally powerful and able to accomplish many goals. A robot is not human in a mechanical repetitive rote memory way that is boring. A baby represents new projects in the dreamer’s life or new parts of herself that she wants to develop.

Each character in the dream is a part of the dreamer’s mind which is the first rule in my book Dreams: Guide to the Soul. Her mother in the dream is the image of her mother she introjected into her subconscious as a child. The mother introject is often the basis of the dreamer’s emotions. In this case, the mother introject is functioning primarily to make her feel guilty for not living up to her responsibilities.

Given the above, I have several thoughts: (1) The dreamer felt held down and wanted to fly, (2) Her attempts to avoid being robotic-like (she is flying away from a pursuing robot) encouraged her to fly (to boldly strike out in new directions), (3) She felt guilty about festivaling/feasting too much (her mother introject did not approve) and (4) She probably feel held down by new projects (the dream is emphasizing new babies which are usually new projects or developing new parts of herself, i.e., “it’s your baby.”)

The dreamer later told me that “feeling held down is exactly how I feel, it is a good representation of how I feel….I just feel weighted down by all these things, even new projects..and I have little to no energy to make myself become not weighted down……the way I interpreted my dream was, I have to take care of some projects before i learn, or am finally able to fly.”

What does floating mean in a dream?

Walking in the https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OZb5duiufLI
Walking in the air https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OZb5duiufLI

Dream 329: Floating High

A 50 something man described having a dream that he always remembered even years later. When he was an elementary school boy, he dreamed repeatedly that he was floating above trees. From the sky,he viewed his friend and himself walking through the neighborhood on the sidewalk. He felt like he was actually floating in reality.

Interpretation

Dreaming that you’re floating is not as powerful as flying, but it is significant. The fact that it was a recurrent dream, a dream that occurs repeatedly, emphasizes that it was an important or “big” dream. Floating usually means that the dreamer felt content with the situation, that he was literally “floating on air” at that time.

Trees are a primary symbol of integration which means the dreamer felt pretty together personally back then. Having a friend in a dream is many times a dreams way of doubling the dreamer. The dream was doubling down on the importance of his feelings in the dream.

Alternative explanations of the dream involve it being a lucid dream or an out-of-body experience. These explanations are very speculative; however, it would explain the huge impact these dreams had on him. Decades later, he could remember this dream like it happened yesterday.

What does a dragon mean in a dream?

Serious Change

Dream 326: What does a dragon mean in a dream?

Animals represent an instinctive energy in a dream. A dragon represents very powerful and almost magical instinctive energy. the following dream illustrates this principle.

A woman dreamed that two men replacing millstones deep in the earth through a long shaft because they believed it would unleash energy from the earth. She thought the energy that freed to go to the surface was a wild dragon.

Interpretation

Men usually represent action parts of the mind. Tunneling into the earth usually represents traveling to the subconscious because you are going underneath what underlies reality. Things buried in the earth have an interesting history.

In Greek, Norse, and Germanic mythology, things buried in the earth like a stone or a millstone were seen as bringing forth powerful energy from the earth. In Greek mythology, the Giants sprang from objects buried deep in the earth. The Giants were in opposition to the gods and frequently were at war with them. It was thought that each volcano had a giant buried beneath it which, when the giant was angered, led to eruptions.

So the dream essentially meant that she was unleashing powerful instinctive and almost magically wild energy from her subconscious and bringing it to the service of consciousness in her life. If the dragon was a flying dragon, that would signal even more energy. And if the dragon breathed fire, that would be serious change because fire transforms matter into energy. In any case, it was a very big and powerful dream that forecast new and magically wild energy surfacing in her life.

Out of Body, Out of Mind

People have told me that the closest thing to an out of body experience in a dream is flying in a dream.

What does a baby mean in a dream?

What's new is your life?
What’s new in your life?

Dream Answer 298: Babies are almost always good news in dreams. They typically signal new growth in the dreamer of either new emotional (girl babies) or new behavior (boy babies). The following dream indicated new emotional growth:

An adult woman dreamed that she saw a spirit (baby-like) floating up in the corner of her bedroom near the ceiling. She staring at it trying to figure out what to do when her chihuahua, who was also looking at it, turned to her and said “you see it, just speak to it”. So she asked “who are you” and it materialized into a flower (like a daisy) against her wall.

Interpretation

Each person or creature in a dream is a part of the dreamer’s psyche at the first level. Females tend to go with emotions. Males tend to be associated with behavior. A baby represents a new part of the mind/psyche.

Floating or flying typically takes on spiritual meaning. Floating indicates usually an activated energy that is hanging above the dreamer. The emotional change that the new female baby portends is likely to happen soon when it is floating which is a peaceful and serene form of flying.

Dogs typically go with the dreamer’s affections and are associated with loyalty and protection. The dog gives you advice in the sense of urging you to speak to activate this new emotional part of you. Specifically, the dreamer was urged to speak directly about what she sees going on to others (“you see it, just speak it”).

The baby turning into a flower indicated that her new emotional growth was beautiful. The flower went against her “wall” which indicated she was going to be less defensive. The new emotional growth on the verge of entering the dreamer’s life was that she was becoming less defensive by speaking out directly about what she sees going on. She was being urged to be less defensive and to be more assertive. The dream wanted her to speak her truth.

Torrent of Anger

images(5)Dream 253: Changing the Torrent of Anger

A 34-year-old man dreamt of a tornado over the ocean creating a funnel of water. He was viewing the scene through his omniscient observer-ego. Suddenly two helicopters appeared. One was well above the top of the funnel while the other helicopter was well below the top of the funnel. Each of them fired a missile at the base of the funnel which destroyed it and removed its destructive potential.

Interpretation– He returned from Afghanistan with severe post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He was losing his temper with his family and their children so often that they felt like they “were walking on eggshells.” In dreams, water is emotions and a tornado is a powerful and potentially destructive natural force which in this case is anger. Fire in dreams is change or transformation. Missiles explode and create fire, i.e. change.

Changes in elevation in dreams often represent different levels of consciousness. Lower levels address practical and everyday needs while higher levels typically address higher or even spiritual aspirations especially when flight is involved. Helicopters are strongly identified with the military.

Helicopters are a type of flight that is methodical, strategic and calculating. The dream indicated that he had totally changed. He had methodically trained himself to eliminate uncontrolled natural forces, i.e., anger, from family interactions. The dream was recognizing his radical changes on both higher and lower levels of consciousness.

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.

My Creativity Is Voracious and Is Eating Me Alive–This Is for the Birds

PR angel: at the International Birdman Competition in Bognor.Dream 191: My Creativity Is Eating Me Up

A 30-year-old man dreamt that he was looking at apartments in the town where he grew up. The first apartments were all desolate and decrepit and did not look fit for human habitation. He came upon an apartment complex which was well-built. As he looked up at the multi-storied complex, he saw bird men sitting in a row on a ledge. These half human, half bird men were just sitting there inactive, with an occasional ruffling of feathers.

The dream shifted to him being inside one of these luxury apartments. He remembered trying to go into the kitchen, but a bird man blocked his way. He was then surrounded by bird men in the living room.  The bird men began eating him.

Dream 191 Interpretation

His early life was confusing to the point that he ran away from home when he was twelve. He lived on the streets, staying with friends, most of whom lived in apartments. The early run down apartments in the dream were an accurate depiction of his early life which, of course, had a major impact upon him.

The high-rise apartments are describing his more recent development. He was a complex person who wrote poetry that was quite good. Birds can represent freedom, and he was a very self-reliant and independent man. The birds are inactive early in the dream. Flight is often indicative of spirituality. His spirit not flying was ruffling his feathers.

He did not have a job that he could tolerate. He felt compelled to write, but had recently stopped writing because of depression. The dream is saying that he wants to create (the kitchen is a place of creativity), but he had writer’s block. Not writing was making him depressed, it was figuratively eating him up.

Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill

Jeremy Taylor in his 1992 book of the same title as this post talked about dream interpretation. The idea that people could fly without engines was absurd back then. The thought was that people could only fly under their own power in dreams.
This was before wingsuits allowed people to fly using the natural heat updrafts near mountains. No matter how many times I view it, flying by wingsuit always looks dreamlike to me. The following video is another astounding example of wingsuit flight:


There were many interesting techniques and ideas in Taylor’s book. He used dreams to explain delirium tremens. Delirium tremens is a condition where an alcoholic has hallucinations such as seeing bugs crawling all over his or her body. Extreme alcohol abuse is known to stop the alcoholic from dreaming.

It is known that people who are kept from dreaming will make up for the lost dream time on subsequent nights. What Taylor believes is that the alcoholic is dream deprived when abusing alcohol to such an extreme that when they begin to sober up, they literally have an awake dream because the need to dream has built up to the point that it is extremely intense.
