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.

Stop Hurting Your Boyfriend

DREAM 240: Stop Hurting Your Boyfriend and Get a Job

A 28-year-old woman dreamt that she was teleported to Pakistan and met a Pakistani woman in a tent. The Pakistani woman was very kind, attractive, and personable. They talked in the tent for a long time. The dreamer saw images of lips all around her. She then saw the Pakistani woman kiss her on the cheek.

The dream then shifted to her being a passenger in a helicopter piloted by a policeman. They went over major mountains until they arrived home safely.

Dream 240–Interpretation

The dreamer had a Pakistani woman friend who was emotionally mature and considerate. The dreamer recently was inconsiderate and hurtful towards her boyfriend. The images of lips all around your indicated that she needed to be more careful in what she said. The Pakistani woman kissing her on the cheek indicated that she emotionally wanted to integrate the Pakistanis woman’s qualities (emotions) into her own personality.

A policeman often represents the heroic masculine archetype. The heroic masculine is the part of a dreamer’s personality that typically effects therapeutic change in the dreamers life. A police officer also represents the superego or conscience to some degree. She felt guilty that she lived at home with her mother and had no job while her mother work hard at a low paying job.

Mountains often represent obstacles in the dreamers life. The challenge that the dreamer had to surmount was getting a job. Males are typically action figures and the heroic masculine is almost always very helpful.

The dream indicated that the action part of herself, the male heroic masculine, was going to help her surmount the dreamer’s goal of getting a job. She was getting ready to fly in a controlled and very practical way. She could decide exactly where she wanted to land, which is the reason a helicopter was used by the dream.
