Dream 468: I need to change some things about myself

A woman had the following dream:

“I had an unusual dream about tattoos under each one of my arm pitts. I don’t have any tattoos or want them but there were 3 inside my arm pitts. They were small like a dime size. ¬†One had a date like March 11th on it. What does that stand for? It was very strange.”

Interpretation

Three is the number if change. You do not like tattoos. The tatoos are in an unusual place that cannot ordinarily be seen by others, the pits of your arms.

The number eleven implies a sense of urgency, as we talk about changing things before it is too late, ie., we especially need to change when a situation is “in its eleventh hour.”

It is notable that the Japan tsunami was on March 11th of 2011. Water is virtually always emotion. A tsunami is an unexpected flood of emotion.

I think that you may believe that you need to change things inside you that are hidden, but close to the surface, that you consider to be “the pits.” It is likely that you may have recently experienced a flood of emotions that made you think that there was a strong urgent need to change things about yourself that you do not like.

The dime is interesting. I am reminded of the saying, “to stop on a dime.” I believe this is added emphasis that the emotions mainly need to change now.

The dreamer later told me that she was flooded with emotion from the recent death of her mother. I recommended that she attend grief counseling to make the change of expressing her emotions more.

Feeling Washed Out

A 28-year-old woman dreamt that she was walking along an ocean boardwalk with her mother. The water rose and engulfed them. She survived, was uncertain what happened to her mother, and felt exhausted.

Dream 222–Interpretation

Water is emotion which in this case overwhelms the dreamer. She recently came out of the closet and revealed that she was in a lesbian relationship. This affected the basis of her emotions (her mother introject) to the point that she was exhausted.

Saving Myself from My Anger

 

Dream 194: Saving Myself from My Anger

A 36-year-old man dreamt that he was on a raft2004-tsunami with his brother who was two years older.  There were other swimmers in the water who were quite relaxed.  Suddenly a huge wave came that lifted the water level very high.  Then another wave raised the water level even higher.  He decided to land the raft at a nearby island where he went to a campground.  He left the brother behind.

Dream 194 Interpretation

The brother consistently bullied him when they were growing up.  Worse than that, his brother hit on two of his girlfriends when he was in his early twenties.  The dream presents himself surrounded by his relaxed parts of the psyche while he tries to deal with his anger (his older brother).  He is trying to deal with the emotional upset with his bullying brother that still irritated him and made it more likely that he would lose his temper.

Water is emotion. The two huge waves are the huge waves of emotion he felt after his brother tried to seduce each of his girlfriends.  The dream, by the way it begins with relaxed bodies in the river (relaxed parts of his psyche), and by the way it ends with him going to a natural island campground and leaving the brother on the raft, is urging him to leave the anger behind and relax.  The dream urged him to ride the waves of emotion out to where they can do no harm.
