Scaring Myself

gaff-rigged-sailboat-in-lagoonDream 207: Scaring Myself

A 42-year-old man dreamt that he was sailing across a lake with a small, sleek and beautiful sailboat. The lake was crystal clear water. At some point, he decided to enter a lagoon surrounded by dense forest and plants.

He wanted to go ashore, but the shallow water was murky with a soft and muddy bottom. He did not want to walk through the mud to get ashore. He suddenly flew to the house he grew up in located near the lagoon. He went up a set of stairs to the second floor where his progress was blocked by a vertically  sliding closed door. He slide the wooden door open to find a little boy who made animal noises and tried to scare him. He wondered what to do with the little boy.

Dream 207 Interpretation

A lake is local or familiar emotion. The dream indicated that he was navigating (the sailboat) his emotions relatively well, although he had some challenges represented by his sailing against the wind. The dreamer was a long time alcoholic who had been sober for over a year.

The lagoon represented a place of growth within himself given the plants and trees. The dream noted that his internal little boy was the problem. His immature emotions frightened himself by pointing to what he potentially could do when in immature contact with his instincts. The dream implies that he needs to work on the little boy in his head (the house represented the dreamer to some extent and the little boy being upstairs emphasized how immature instincts affected his thinking).

Dream 198A: Clean Up Your Communication

A 48-year-old man dreamt that he was a police officer. A mother was telling him to write down neatly the changes that needed to occur in her 12-year-old son. She complained that her son was only getting C’s and D’s.

Dream 198A–Interpretation

A police officer is a superego figure (as are all law enforcement officers.) The mother in the dream is his mother introject which primarily deals with emotional issues. The son is his immature actions.

He recently was getting in trouble with his wife for swearing too much. She complained that his swearing was ruining their positive emotional atmosphere. She thought it was juvenile (the boy) and she and his mother introject gave his speech low grades (C’s and D’s). The fact that the police officer wrote down the information means that he should take special note of what his mother introject is telling him. His superego or conscience is telling him to clean up (write more legibly, communicate more clearly) his language.
