What is a numinous dream?

Dream 456: Going down is going up in this pyramid

A woman had the following dream:

“I was standing in a dark empty space and realized my feet felt numb. I tried to feel for the energy around my right foot when suddenly I felt a strong burst of energy shoot downward from the heel of my foot. I looked down and saw a square shaped opening had appeared beneath me and I was slipping down into it. The walls were lined with red brick and I could see it extended far into the darkness.

I knew somehow that this space was the inside of a pyramid. It was made of red brick, shaped upside-down, and empty inside. I had entered through the square shaped base and was sliding down its wall, the space grew more narrow as I neared the endpoint.

I woke up before I reached the bottom, but not too long after seeing the red pyramid beneath my right foot I had a second occurrence.

This time it was energy projected from the front of my left foot. I was floating in outer space looking down into a galaxy. I could see flickering stars far off in the distance and below me was the swirled gases and random debris turning on its axis. I looked around me into the darkness and thought: “this is where all life came from.” I knew I was in the place where all energy is exchanged, transformed, and recycled. I had the thought that all living things knew this place in the back of their minds and are always linked to it throughout our whole lives.”

Interpretation

In some ways it sounds more like an experience than a dream. If I were to interpret it like a dream, I would say that there’s probably a good balance between your consciousness and your subconscious as energy shoots from both your left foot and your right foot. The right usually goes with the conscious energy while the left usually goes with subconscious energy.

I would say that the reason the pyramid sticks in your mind and is very vivid is because this image is very archetypal. I believe it is an upside-down Egyptian pyramid. It is archetypal because the pyramids are images fixed in our subconscious because of their importance to mankind in history and their meaning symbolically involving power and death.

We talk about there being a pyramid of needs with the most basic needs being at the base of the pyramid and the higher needs such as self-actualization being at the top of the pyramid; however, this is an upside down pyramid. The reason for that is movement downward means that you are going down further into your subconscious usually. The dream turns positively cosmic when the energy shoots from your left (subconscious) side.

What the dream is saying is that you reach toward your goal of self-actualization more by delving into your subconscious. The reason it is red is because red goes with strong emotion. So I think the dream is reflecting that you are experiencing personal growth and self-actualization by delving deeper into your emotions and self-actualization subconscious needs.

Your dream sounded like a numinous (I like to say luminous) vision dream which has a sacred larger than life feel to it. In Carl Jung’s world, having a numinous dream experience was always a big deal and significant.

What do horses and animals mean in dreams?

The power of life and love

Dream 408: Loving Life

I dreamed I was in a dark forest walking on a dirt path, in the middle of the path there were black horses breathing fire thru nostrils. I felt terrified and sat on ground in a fetus position, praying to please allow me to cross over the other side. I crawled slowly, getting under the horses. Suddenly these horses started rubbing heads on my face with so much love. Slowly removing the extreme fear with loving touches. Then different animals in the forest– deer, mice, rats,snakes and so on. All where rubbing and caressing me, and I was in a state of overwhelming love..WOKE UP..cried because i still felt the sensation of this love, I couldn’t eat meat for months. I couldn’t cut chicken for my family’s dinners. I would start crying. It was strange to still feel it after months. I am not religious or a vegetarian.

Interpretation

Animals generally represent our instincts which are biological necessities in order to survive. Horses in particular seem to represent female living energy or libido. The first part of the dream is you have the power of that life force. It is the shadow side of the life or love force that provides the “horsepower” needed in life. The remainder of the dream is trying to make you comfortable with accepting that energy because when that life force is used correctly, it is loving, instinctual, and the basis of life.

What do trains represent in dreams?

Dream Interpretation 366: Trains still constantly appear in dreams even though they are not used that much because they are such a powerful metaphor for life.

I obtained the following from the internet. I do not know who the author is:
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋

Life is like a journey on a train…
with its stations…
with changes of routes…
and with accidents !

🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
We believe they will always travel on this train with us.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant – our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
Many will go so unnoticed that we won’t even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train !
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.
🚂🚋🚋🚋
A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all co passengers…
and making sure that we give our best to make their journey comfortable.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
The mystery of this fabulous journey is :
We do not know at which station we ourselves are going to get off.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
So, we must live in the best way – adjust, forget, forgive and offer the best of what we have.
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat… we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.”
🚂🚋🚋🚋🚋
Thank you for being one of the important passengers on my train… don’t know when my station will come… don’t want 2 miss saying: “Thank you”
🚂🚋🚋🚋

Dreams Help Solve the Puzzles in Life

The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind. Sigmund Freuddream image puzzles People who learn a skill and then sleep for several hours do better after sleeping than people who immediately try to do the skill they learned. Each night we sift through the problems of the day and then put solutions to a virtual reality test through dreams.
