Shapeshifter or Shape Shifter

The shape shifter is the part of you that has lived through every experience from conception through to where you are at the moment. It doesn’t have a face or even a recognisable shape because it can be any age and in fact anything. What part it plays in your dream is that it says, “Do not get lost in being just one shape, just one age, just being the body, because I am a shape shifter.”

A man who was practising relaxation said that one day while practising he lost all his body awareness, and seemed to fall into a huge space where his ego felt as if it melted into a vast ocean of consciousness. He realised afterwards that he had fallen asleep while maintaining awareness, rather like a deep-sea diver breaking through the surface of the sea and diving into the depths.

Science still cannot define what consciousness is, or what mind is. But such experiences as those mentioned suggest that in some way, when we move beyond the boundaries of our senses, our mind leaps beyond time and space. It is at its core a shape shifter, male, female, animal, and in all probability whatever else we can make of it. It is as mysterious and wonderful as life itself. Huge Change HappeningDimensions of Human Experience

You are a shape-shifter in dreams, and can be any of the characters in your dream. That is how you get their power and wisdom. The femaleness or maleness we usually feel ourselves to be must not be confused with personality. The conscious personality is a very flexible and shape shifting thing. It can be male or female in quality no matter what the body gender.

But maturing into a real shape-shifter is not done by acting it out by trying to be the opposite sex. Integrating our opposite does not mean dressing up in male or female clothes, or even having an operation. That is further developing an unbalanced self. Integration means having both the female and the male self equally developed. That is wholeness. So, being firmly male, female or homosexul are all unbalanced. It takes courage and hard work to achieve being the being without form. See Life’s Little SecretsDimensions of Human ExperienceArchetype of the Shapeshifter

Example: My dream starts with myself and couple of other people next to a fire. I notice a rat beside the fire; it tries to scurry off into the darkness. Next moment I am an owl swooping down upon the rat, I catch it in both my claws, swooping back up in the air. At this point I notice the entire dream is in an old building almost like a barn, with thick wooden rafters. I circle the fire just below the rafters; I notice one of the people beside the fire is my brother. I also come to the realisation that I am the owl, which I am very proud of. It is like I am a shape shifter and have been trying to transform into owl form for a long time. I also want to show my brother I have caught the rat, so I land and start to change into human form. I try to show my brother the rat but I cannot look at him. I try to a couple times to look at him but just can’t. I haven’t fully changed yet either, as there are still a few feathers on me. This is when I wake up face down into the pillow. I feel positive about this dream.

Example: I was walking up the several flights of stairs to get to the attic room. I was holding a small dog in my arms – one of those rather flat nosed toy dogs.

When I arrived at the attic I put the dog down. But now the attic was empty and dark. I could feel my hair stand on end and my skin ‘crawling’. Actually I feel it all again as I write this. The feeling arose because there was an unformed dark shape creeping around at the far end of the room. The dog was really afraid and jumped into my arms.

Then the dark creature leapt at me, transforming into a massive mouth with huge fangs and awful demonic face. Immediately I leapt at it in the same way and smashed against its face with my own huge fangs and demon face. This utterly disarmed it because it had felt, in its primitive way, to terrify me. It surprised me too that I could so immediately transform into a monster when necessary.

Reading the shapeshifter info has guided me in my own dreams. It’s so good to read of other’s dream experiences of this nature.
