Dream 325: She Wormed Her Way Into My Heart

A woman dreamed that a long pink worm had bored its way into her upper arm. Half of the worm was sticking out of her arm. She asked her 9-year-old daughter to break off the part of the worm outside her arm. There was a narrator in the background explaining why this was necessary, that the worm was a strain on the dreamer. Her daughter broke the part of the worm sticking out. Her daughter could barely stand to look at it while she broke it off.

Interpretation

A worm lives on other things. The upper part of your arms is the major muscles used in lifting heavy objects and doing major work. The color pink represents positive affection which is involved with your daughter of course.

I believe the dream is saying that you are doing too much heavy lifting for your daughter and need to break it off like your daughter breaks the worm off. You don’t want to stop it completely because she is your daughter, but you have to measure how much of the heavy lifting you do for your daughter. The dream indicates the change in the relationship will be hard for both you and your daughter. That is probably because she has wormed her way into your heart.

My Attempt to Change Died

Dream 280: Change Died
baby-found-alive-at-chinese-funeral-home-2-days-after-being-pronounced-dead
A 48-year-old woman dreamed that she bought the house of her son’s mother-in-law. When she arrived at this house, there was a dead baby in a casket with large funeral candles on each side of the casket.

Interpretation

This woman was hyper-critical of her son. His mother-in-law had a troubled background similar to his mother’s personal history. The mother-in-law was, nevertheless, relatively calm, more diplomatic, and less critical than the dreamer.
A house can represent the dreamer because it is the framework out of which one lives. That the dreamer bought the house indicates that the dreamer is aspiring to be a different person, to be more like her son’s mother-in-law. The deceased baby is not good news.

Each character in a dream represents a part of the dreamer’s personality at the first level of dream interpretation. A baby represents a new part of the personality or psyche that the dreamer tried to develop. So a baby represents personal growth on the part of the dreamer.

That the baby is dead signals that her attempt to be different, to be more like the calmer mother-in-law, failed. That it was an attempt to change was highlighted by the funeral candles. Candles imply fire, and fire represents change because fire changes matter into energy.

It is perfect that they were funeral candles. Funeral candles are typically unlit. The unlit candles emphasized that no change had occurred. That it is a funeral scene gives some hope because the dreamer saw her lack of change as a real loss. The dreamer is in mourning which suggests that being more like the mother-in-law personality-wise was something that the dreamer really wanted.

Dream 270: Learning to Say No

date-rape-drugDream 270: Learn to Say No
A 22-year-old female college sophomore dreamed that a slick and fast talking lawyer was trying to talk her into investing in a dubious deal. She then had the scene of entering a classroom and the students were voting about whether they should each receive an injection of a drug that would hypnotize the recipient. The dream shifted to her at a busy nightclub. Her mother was in one corner of the nightclub urging her to ingest ketamine, the date rape drug. The dreamer was disgusted with her mother’s advice.
Interpretation
The slick lawyer was the embodiment of the Trickster archetype. Archetypes are patterns of thought common in culture that are passed on through human consciousness. The trickster is often a wheeler-dealer manipulator who gets what he wants. The dreamer was influenced too much by tricksters both financially and socially.
The classroom scene emphasized that there were many parts of herself (each character in the dream is a part of the dreamer’s mind) that expressly do not want to be hypnotized or controlled by other. That this occurs in a classroom emphasized that she should not be swayed by others to ignore what she has learned.
The final scene emphasized that her tendency to go along with others wants came from her mother. Mom was excessively giving to the point that she was often used by others with sometimes disaster results. Her disgust was actually a good sign that the dreamer was going to be more careful in social or dating situations.

Dream 257: Life Was the Pits at 16

dead boy pile Africa

Dream 257:

The 16-year-old teenager dreamt that he was in Africa. There was a huge pile of mostly dead bodies in a large pit. They found a ten-year-old black girl who was mostly just a head and a spinal cord. The dreamer helped the doctors put the girl in an ambulance and accompanied her to the hospital, convinced that she could be saved.

At some point on the trip to the hospital in the back of the ambulance, the girl turned to the dreamer and said a single word which was “Mum.”

Interpretation– At the first level, each character in the dream represents a part of your psyche. Men often go more with an action part of the mind, while women represent emotional parts of the psyche. The darker the skin, the more soul is being summoned.

The setting of the dream is often telling you what it is going to discuss in the dream. In this case, it was literally telling you how, at the age of sixteen, life was pretty much “the pits” (the deep hole full of bodies). Dead bodies show that parts of the psyche have radically changed or “died.”

As part of the massive changes occurring within the dreamer, the dream is trying to point to what needs to change emotionally (it picks out a deformed girl). The girl is immature (below the dreamer’s age) and consists of only a nervous system, a brain and a spinal cord. This is the dream’s way of saying that the dreamer is too much in the head and intellectual, and not dealing with emotions.

The fact that there are doctors and an ambulance indicates that this part of the emotions is in need of emergency healing.

The single word “mum” is important. The dream was saying that the dreamer is not speaking out emotionally enough, i.e., that “mum” is the word. It is speculative, because I do not know the dreamer well enough, but I wonder if there is something significant occurring in the dreamer’s relationship to mom=mum. In any case, it is highly likely that the dream is calling for the dreamer to express more soulful emotions and leave many old parts of the mind behind. It specifically wants the dreamer to speak out in a meaningful and emotional way more.

Clean Up Your Language

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.

Is This a Vision Dream?

angel-09-250140612_std(2)

Is this a dream of a visitation from a loved one in a dream like “The Sixth Sense” movie or is the dream symbolic? In what follows, it is usually more comprehensive to consider the dream to be both:

Dream 203: Take Care of Your Little Boy

A 34-year-old man dreamt that his recently deceased mother was hugging his son who was six years old. The mother was nodding approvingly toward the dreamer as she hugged his son.

Dream 203 Interpretation

The dreamer noted that this dream seemed almost real. So real that we could classify this dream as a vision dream. Mother in the dream was his mother introject since each character in a dream represents a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation.

If we look at this dream symbolically, his emotions were giving approval as to how he was taking care of his son because the mother introject is often the foundation of emotions. The dreamer recently stopped negative activities and dedicated himself to being a good father to his son. His subconscious approved.

Mom would be proud. If we consider this to be a vision dream, then it simply is what it is. Which one is it?
