The truth is out there

Dream 369: Looking Up and Feeling Down
A young man had the following dream:

“I had a dream where the streets was in a massive uproar. Citizens were locking themselves in and some where fleeing the city. As I looked outside into the streets I’ve witnessed the military and police on every corner. As I began to look at the sky, I saw a large UFO hovering over the city. The citizens was advised to stay in. As my family run in for cover trying to protect ourselves I looked out the windows to witness several tornadoes destroying the city. After the disaster we ended up at a dock to board a huge submarine with thousands of people waiting to board this submarine. As people patiently wait for their names to get called to board. Some families were unfortunate and couldn’t board and was turned away to be left behind. As some started to board a massive earthquake begins and breaks the dock. We all fell into the water….as I’m swimming to attempt to save my sister I wake up!”

My Interpretation for him

Jung said that a UFO is a “Mandela of divine possibility.” I think he meant the dreamer had hope that there was some truth “out there” for him or her. The police and military being everywhere indicates superego issues which is to say that are you want to keep your behavior according to the law and rules of society.

An earthquake usually means that your world is being shaken up in a major way. The ocean is the best symbol we have of subconscious emotion. You literally are going to get on a submarine to safely investigate the subconscious.

The people that make it onto the submarine are safe, but they are few. In other words, your subconscious thinks that there’s some of you that wants to look at subconscious issues, but a lot of you is resting on the dock of the bay which can result in negative events. (Each person in the dream is a part of your mind). The implication is that you may wish to “get on board” with something like therapy.

So all in all, the dream is saying that you’re looking for the truth out there and are being advised by your subconscious to follow the rules and explore your subconscious emotion before your world is totally shaken up. This dream was taken as symbolic which may or may not apply to you.

At the end, trying to save your sister indicates that you are trying to save the emotions that are close to you since women usually represent emotions and she is in your family.

What does a sinking ship mean in a dream?

Dream 304: The Heroic Masculine Saves Your Ship

Water is emotion and the ocean is the best symbol there is for subconscious emotion. A ship represents how you are navigating your emotions, i.e., how you are keeping your head above water. A ship sinking in a dream usually means the dreamer is not doing well.

Ships have almost always been used to reflect emotional tones. When a political campaign is not doing well and staff start resugning and leaving the candidate, it is often said that “the rats are leaving a sinking ship.” When sudden good fortune comes into someone’s life, it is often said that “their ship has come in.”

The following dream is a good example of this imagery as well as talking about the reassuring role the heroic masculine archetype can take in the dreamer’s subconscious:

Dream 304: Saving My Ship

A young woman dreamt that she was on a sinking ship. A dark-haired man dressed in army gear helped her to not be afraid. She asked him his name so that she would remember him when she woke up. He said his name was Joseph Smith. She remembered this dream for years.

Interpretation

At the first level of dream interpretation each character in the dream represents a part of your psyche. The dark-haired man in the drean is the heroic masculine archetype with spiritual undertones. Let me explain.

The heroic masculine showing up is almost always good news. It is the part of your psyche that is willing to do anything for the dreamer’s own good and especially informs the dreamer’s actions. Soldiers are frequently representative of the heroic masculine simply because they are willing to die for their country.

The heroic masculine motto is “to serve and protect.” I believe he showed himself to the dreamer to reassure her that she had a part of herrself that would always be there to help her out of difficult emotional situations. Water is emotion and the ocean is the best symbol we have of the subconscious.

Her heroic masculine indicated that it was going to be there to save her from sinking into overwhelming emotions. Joseph Smith was the founder of the Mormon religion so this is a very spiritual heroic masculine archetype.

This dream is nothing but good news. The heroic masculine’s reassurance was meant to help her emotionally stabilize. Because it would use the founder of the Mormon religion, it implies that her growing spiritually may help her stabilize emotionally, to keep from sinking and being overcome by emotion.

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.”
