Dream 437: The Evil Queen

I have had very vivid and odd dreams every night for the past month. Yet when I awake I usually only remember pieces. I was standing in front of my ex husband. We were talking as I began to think in my head about our split. Reminding myself of the monster he became…the reason I left. I used to have no voice when in his presence so I was reminding myself before I made eye contact.

I reached in my pocket though and pulled out a seemingly endless stack of large bills. He put his hands out and one by one I placed the bills in his Palm. It never ended. I remember thinking what about my needs. If I give it all I’ll have nothing. He never stopped me and I never spoke up.

I looked down and Instantly fell to my knees. I quickly place my hands out to catch This large Brown ribbed vase. I was unable to catch it in time. The glass broke shattering and slicing my right Index finger. I remember specifically the feel of glass shards across my fingers.

I looked up to see a woman I have not yet the chance to meet.  She had black curly hair old style framed glasses. She had a dark-tinted color to her, like not a normal color. She just stared blankly at me. It was creepy, almost like I felt I was in trouble.

I heard “Watch her–When she appears pay close attention to her.” Then I woke up. I’ve yet to understand this one. A lot of my dreams are about money or past lives, even god. I’m not sure why the oddities, but would greatly appreciate any Insight.

Interpretation

Money usually represents energy in dreams. He was a viper who took all your energy and never reciprocated.

The woman in your dreams is negative emotions. Jung called her the queen or the negative mother complex. She resides in everyone’s subconscious.

The queen is all about power and control. Her attitude toward you is capricious and arbitrary.

Her motto is “ask not what I can do for you–ask what you can do for me now.” She looks very strong, but will wilt unless the odds are overwhelmingly in her favor.

The savage masculine will aggravate and make her stronger. It sounds like you were married to a savage masculine man. The only part of the psyche that has any success against her is the heroic masculine–which usually involves being dedicated to taking positive actions that focus mainly, if not exclusively, on your needs and not making any excuses about it nor apologizing for looking after your needs.

I think the brown vase falling and cutting your finger right before the queen appears was done to emphasize that the queen is the emotional part of yourself that is hurting you. When glass is breaking in a dream, that usually means that the emotional impact of something is finally fully reaching you.  Her favorite putdown is “who do you think you are.”

I hope this is helpful.

Feelings Petrified in Wax

1538579-bigthumbnail-582991848Dream 249: Witches Waxed My Feelings

A 19-year-old college student dreamt that he was in a cave made of wax.  Wax was all around him and his feet even sank into wax as he walked. He saw immediately in front of him were two evil and horribly ugly witches.  As they moved toward him, he was filled with wax form inside of him which solidified. He somehow escaped because the floor of the cave opened and he fell safely into an athletic locker room.

Dream 249–Interpretation

His parents divorced when he was in first grade. He blamed the divorce on his “evil stepmother” seducing his father. He simply referred to her as “the devil.”

In high school, he had a long-time girlfriend who was like the evil stepmother, but she wasn’t as bad. (His dating a girl friend who was like his stepmother was classic “repetition complex” according to Freud which I will discuss in the next post.) Females most often go with emotions, while men usually go with actions.

Witches usually represent negative emotions. The fact that the setting is a cave suggests that you just dealing with the subconscious (what lies beneath). Wax is associated with artificiality as in wax museum which contain mannequins, i.e. “fake people.”

He squelched his emotions and reactions to his stepmother and manipulative girlfriend. Thus, it was the parts of his psyche that dealt with these two disturbing women that caused him to wax his insides, to cover his feelings. He managed to escape these two negative unfluences by falling into, subconsciously entering, the heroic masculine.

The heroic masculine, positive action, can be associated with athletics. His falling into a locker room meant that he subconsciously entered the arena of the heroic masculine archetype. Witches are good representation of the negative mother complex.

The heroic masculine (positive actions) is frequently the only archetype that enjoys success against this powerful emotional complex. The appearance of the heroic masculine in dreams is virtually always good news. It means the dreamer has committed himself to positive action. Of course, he felt better at the end of this “big” dream.
