Alicia – Everything we do and think is taken into our Core being. That level is usually called our Spirit. It is the part of us that sees everything and tries to balance us up to keep us healthy, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually. And it isn’t like a vengeful God – an eye for an eye thing. It is really interested in your best interests.
So as far as your dream is concerned, I feel a lot of it arises from your natural worry about your baby. The truth is that what we think and feel becomes a reality in the inner world of dreams. So maybe you are creating a lot of stress four yourself out of worry about your baby, and also a bit of conscience. You can get through this more quickly by having a serious talk with your Core self. If it is difficult to have an image of this, use whatever is a symbol of whatever you see as the highest in you or in Life.
The dreams I have don’t fit into any of the descriptions I’ve seen anywhere online. They have been going on for years, are serial, and I can transfer information from one dream to another. Minor injuries and smells often transfer to my waking life. The people I know in my dreams I could pick out of a lineup. If Anyone is experiencing similar dreams, please email me.
Camille – I don’t experience dreams like that because I explore them and so move on. One woman had exactly the same dream night after night. Her record had got stuck in a groove and so played the same track over and over. It needs a jog. Usually the same things appear in dreams because the causes behind them are not made conscious. And the transfer from one dream isn’t actually a transfer but a message that is so important it comes in wherever it can. The waking life is only a dummed down version of our dream/inner life.
An example – A woman in her fifties told me that since early childhood until her forties she had experienced a recurring dream that was very disturbing. In the dream she was walking past railings in the town she lived in as a child. She always woke in dread and perspiration from this dream. During her forties she had the dream while her sister was visiting and told her the dream. The response was, “Oh, that’s simple. Don’t you remember that when you were about four we were walking past those railings and we were set on by a bunch of boys. Then I said to them, ‘Don’t hurt us our mother’s dead!’ They left us alone, but you should have seen the look on your face.”
From that time on the dream never recurred. It seems likely the event had confronted her with the possibility of her mother dying, which at that age she may never have met before.The impact was strong enough to permeate her life for nearly forty years, causing awful nightmares.
The point is that if we do not integrate such feelings they remain there to be dealt with. And the reason we do not meet them is that we are frightened of our own emotions. Usually these events were too much to meet or cope with at the time, and becomes encysted in our inner life. But as an adult we can deal them, otherwise the dream would not keep repeating.
