The Joy of the Divine Child

Our Hopes and Dreams
Our Hopes and Dreams

Dream 286: A Woman in her twenties had a recurrent dream that she woke up in a room with a man sleeping next to her. A noise caught her attention. She leaned over the man to see a little girl playing on the floor.

She woke the man up who picked up the little girl. The little girl had been playing with books. She looked at her book while sitting on the man’s lap. The little girl was a beautiful child that had hair so soft the dreamer could not resist touching her hair.

The dreamer asked the man who the beautiful little girl was. He had an amazing smile on his face as he said to the dreamer that the little girl was hers. As he handed the toddler to the dreamer, the child wrapped her arms around the dreamer’s neck.

The dreamer then felt that she knew exactly who the little girl was. She knew now with conviction that the little girl was hers. She felt joyously elated.

Interpretation

The dreamer was visited by her Divine Child archetype. The Divine Child is usually a little girl often with blonde hair and blue eyes (not necessarily) between the ages of 3 and 10 years old. She represented the dreamer’s hopes and dreams for the future.

At the first level of dream interpretation, each character in a dream represents part of the dreamer’s mind. Men typically go with actions; women usually go more with emotions. This is not absolutely so, but it is usually the case.

Thus, the man in the dream and the child together represent her mature actions energized by her hopes and dreams, the Divine Child archetype. The thought is that she recently decided on actions that will further her hopes and dreams. The inclusion of books suggest a thoughtful, intelligent or academic decision might be part of the scenario. The dreamer is to be congratulated.

Only the dreamer knows enough of the details of her life to be able to apply this interpretation to her interpersonal life. The man in the dream is significant in a positive way. He is the heroic masculine archetype. His appearance is often good news because it means the dreamer is ready to take positive action in life. His motto is “to serve and protect.”

It is no wonder that this dream made the dreamer feel joyous. Usually a dreamer at this stage begins to know what they want and are ready to take steps to actualize their life. The fact that this was a recurrent dream means that this dream is a “big dream.”

Recurrent dreams are big dreams that mean more than other dreams. That is because the dream is addressing repetitive issues in the dreamer’s life. Recurrent dreams make repeated attempts to get the message to the dreamer until the dreamer “gets it.”

Emotional Terror

Emotional Veiled Terror
Emotional Veiled Terror

Dream 282: A 42-year-old man dreamed that he saw a woman through the keyhole of his front door who was a veiled terrorist. He later saw the terrorist watching his house from several hundred feet away. His wife went out to the street and she and the terrorist got into a fight.

The fighting was very intense and cat-like. His wife was enraged that the female terrorist/spy was smoking. They were then both arrested by the police.

Interpretation

Each character in the dream represents a
part of the dreamer’s mind or psyche. A house can represent the dreamer because it is the framework out of which he lives. Women usually represent emotional parts of the mind.

His wife is his most significant other and that is a good representation of his overall emotions. It is of interest that the dreamer used to work as a corporate spy so he was well familiar with the emotions that go along with that role. He recently had been emotionally terrorising his wife by being unpredictably catty and somewhat harsh.

The dream assured him that no good would come of this strategy as the conflict is too intense. His wife being enraged at the smoking is probably due to his wife and that portion of his mind that deals with his wife being enraged/concerned that he was making being unpredictable with his wife a habit.

There is condensation of the two levels of dream interpretation as he feels intrapsychic conflict over the difficulties with his wife and he has some guilt over spying on her; however, the dream is also concerned with the interpersonal strife he is raising in his personal life. The police showing up and arresting the women indicated that he felt some guilt over the conflict he caused within himself and in his marriage. Police are usually superego figures that enforce the law of your conscience.

My Jets Are Burned Out

images(2)Dream 257: A 28-year-old woman dreamed that her husband was mobilized to serve in Iraq. She then dreamt that the jet he piloted crashed into the airport where she worked.

Interpretation– She dreaded her job at the airport which was tedious, regimented, and boring. She had these same feelings toward the military. Her husband represents an action part of her psyche.

The jet crashing into the airport was advising her to find a different job because she was “burned out” and getting ready to crash regarding her job. This was the meaning of the dream at the first level, where every character is symbolic of either an action part (male) or emotional part (female) of the mind.

The dream was a predictive dream as well as being a symbolic dream. Two weeks after she had this dream, her husband was mobilized to serve in Iraq in real life. This is the interpersonal level of the dream. When both levels are true, which is usually true, we say that the dream condenses on itself.

How can dreams be predictive of the future? I believe there is something inherent in the nature of human consciousness that gets transmitted to all of humanity. There are undiscovered quantum physics principles which will one day explain this phenomenon. It may be true as emphasized in Eastern religions that “we are all one.”
