Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

Dream 291: A man in his thirties had dreams of different places he was living in or hiding in. The roofs were always leaking water or falling apart and were in poor condition. He had these dreams for the last couple of years.

Emotions Are Seeping Into My Mind
Emotions Are Seeping Into My Mind

Interpretation

Water is emotion. The places you are staying can represent yourself to some extent because it is the framework out of which you are living. Parts of the building correspond roughly to different parts of your body. The roof would probably involve your brain or mind.

He also mentioned hiding. The dreams were saying that he was trying to hide from his emotions but they seeped through to his mind anyway.  Changing locations does not stop that process.  He needed to repair his roof, i.e., he needed to handle his emotions differently because the way he is handling emotions now is getting to him and messing up his life.

The rundown nature of the buildings suggest that this is getting him down. The fact that for years he had dreams with a similar theme is significant. Recurrent dreams indicate repetitive similar conflicts that the subconscious is trying to resolve and expresses this process in a dream. Jung considered recurrent dreams to be “big” dreams.

Dream 288
A man in his forties dreamed repeatedly that he was visited by a white robed faceless spirit. This spirited man gave the dreamer all elements of a knights armor. He was given a knights helmet, breastplate, body armor, sword, etc.

This was a recurring dream where he found himself fighting evil night after night in his protective knights armor. He felt powerful and strong. He felt the dream was spiritually significant.

Interpretation
At the first level of dream interpretation, each character in the dream represents a part of the dreamer’s mind or psyche. Men are usually associated more with action parts of the mind. Women usually represent more emotional parts of the psyche.

Repetitive or recurrent dreams are almost always big dreams as Carl Jung believed that some dreams meant more than others. This was especially likely to be the case with recurrent dreams. Usually, the recurrent dream is returning to a repeated theme to continue to try to resolve a repetitive problem.

This dreamer was visited by his own spirit of the heroic masculine. The heroic masculine is the most positive aspect of masculinity. It is a major archetype ingrained in the collective subconscious of mankind.

The heroic masculine motto is “to serve and protect.” This is a very spiritual dream. White is the most spiritual color.

The fact that the heroic masculine was faceless and the evil he was fighting was vague indicated that there are many aspects of himself that he is not familiar with. The dream was recurring over the course of a month as his subconscious wanted him to get to know both the positive and shadow parts of his subconscious. The dream used knights armor to emphasize that chivalry of the heroic masculine. The dream use the armor to emphasize that it was mainly about how he protected himself so that he could protect and help others.

This dream was saying that he would be protected when he uses his heroic masculine to protect himself and others from evil. This dream was saying that the dreamer had developed the positive aspects of masculinity to the point where he was a spiritual warrior. The appearance of this strong of a form of the heroic masculine indicates that he was ready to take major positive action for himself and loved ones.
