Dear Omega – I see peoples dreams as them being naked on stage, but doing it subtle by using dressing up and acting as different characters.

The woman in the wheelchair is an aspect of you, probably near to death because of the many thoughts, feelings and beliefs you have about yourself - inability to present myself well on stage without huge shame and fear debilitating me - I suffer badly from stage fright – etc.

Statistically you and I have very little chance of being shot or being crushed by a falling building. But there is every likelihood that we are already imprisoned, even tortured or manipulated by things we do not even acknowledge as being dangerous or capable of trapping us. We are all victims or captives of what we believe in.  People can, of course, believe what they wish, but such beliefs not only limit ones experience, they also create enormous conflicts, as with religious or political wars. More importantly they act as filters or blocks to a fuller relationship with other people and opportunities. Living like that is like a brick wall that we have created and cannot get through.

If you think about a friend, ask yourself, ‘Is this thought my friend?’ If you have feelings about the friend, ask yourself, ‘ Are these feelings an actual representation of my friend?” No they are not, but are simply your own thoughts and feelings. You cannot conjure your friend into existence by thinking about him or her. Thoughts and emotions are copies of things, just as a photo is a copy of something. They are never the people or things they attempt to copy. They are never reality.
So PLEASE remember this when build your opinion of yourself with thoughts or emotions.
Words are what we usually build our thoughts with, but is the word BIRD ever a reality? Or your thoughts about failure, success or in fact anything, are they the REALITY of YOU. “
At the other end of our waking awareness is an ocean of consciousness that does not have a focussed sense of self. This ocean of consciousness that is at the core of your being is what has been called many names. As you learn to enter more fully into your dreams you will gradually realise that your real self isn’t the body with a gender of male or female, but a shape shifter. You also will have learned how to dive under the surface of your conscious personality and realise that there is a huge and wonderful world often called the unconscious. It is actually awareness of Life, and in it you can become a bodiless consciousness, or be an animal, or know the wonder of animal consciousness.
Wake up to the world you are actually a part of. Many modern physicists, working with the information arising in experiments with quantum theory, tell us that our view of the world is based upon our blindness, and is very limited, and through its limitation, unreal. The implications of the theorem are enormous. Something can be in two places at once, in fact everywhere at the same moment. Apparently distant objects, or people, are intricately linked in an immediate way. There is no separate existence as we previously thought. Our view of the world is not one supported by the facts of physics. Time and space are transcended. People’s experiences of this dimension:

Patricia – Thinking level interpretation only seems to influence the conscious level – but diving into the depths of ones mind and changing things certainly does change you.

But a dream is something that comes from a deep part of you, from your core self, the Life process; it is something that is working upwards toward being conscious. As such it often, like a seed, takes time to break through to the surface, and then it has to grow. The dream images are attempts to communicate something that has probably never been thought about or even been consciously known about, so has never been put into common conscious thinking before. It is a communication from the depths, from beyond thought, and so any interpretations that are given by thinking may completely miss the point.

An example of exploring a nightmare:

Example: Had a very unusual dream last night. I was in an outdoor environment. It seemed a bit dark, or maybe morbid is the right word. I was with other people but none of them stood out to remain in memory. There was a definite awareness though of being near to a place that was haunted, and that a man was in trouble in the haunted place.

I decided to go and see if I could sort out the problem. I walked down a slope to where the centre of the haunting existed. It was an open space with an old double-decker bus in it. The only person on the bus was a middle-aged man who was sitting on the top deck leaning out of a window on the right hand side of the bus. I stood beneath him and looked up. He was staring in a glazed way and didn’t see me. I could see and feel that he was being hit by fantasies or hallucinations by whatever was the source of the haunting. This invasion of his mind was grabbing his attention so fully that he wasn’t aware of his surrounding or of me. I was sure that if he went any deeper into this mind stuff he wouldn’t be able to pull out. I waved my hand in his line of vision and banged my hand on the bus to make a noise and get his attention. At first it didn’t seem as if I would bring him out of it, but after a while he looked at me.
I shouted at him to pull out. I said that he had a wife and some more years of his life to live, so why lose himself into this entrancement. This didn’t seem to grab him so I shouted again and said that he would eventually slip into this empty mind world anyway – at death – so why not live with his wife the remaining years of his life. I was sure that if he lost awareness he would let himself starve.

I was aware that what he desired was to slip away into the Buddhist void, into the awareness of the one life in which he lost any awareness of self. But I banged and shouted and he became more ‘present’. I then felt I had to confront whatever was the source of the powerful ‘haunting’ that was pulling him into the inner mind. I turned away from the man and saw just to my right a short distance from the bus an animal that was the ‘haunter’. It was a mammal of no particular type – a bit like a mixture of dog, rat and guinea pig. It seemed very ordinary and tame, and stood looking at me. I walked toward it and stretched out my hand. It was a tan colour with short fur and gave a feeling of being okay to approach, so I touched it to stroke. This was okay and I was thinking there was no problem when the creature leapt at my throat in a flash of movement and ripped my throat out.

This sounds disturbing but I simply observed this and thought to myself that stroking and trying to be friendly was no way of dealing with this thing. It was as if I was in command of the imagery in that I simply formed another body. But then it dived into me to devour me from within. The only way that felt as if I might deal with the creature was to have the meditative state of holding on to the nothingness that was my centre, and not feeling panic at it’s attacks. In fact apart from the gory imagery, there was nothing to be frightened of, as the creature was only attacking my dream image of myself. As I wasn’t identified with this, it couldn’t hurt me. That was the end of the dream.

But later I explored the dream and it aroused a great anger and hatred for what my mother did to me, which led to this wild devouring anger inside me. It took a while to release it using what Tony describes as Lifestream, but when it was finished I felt I understood why she did what she did and I felt forgiveness. It left a marked change in my life.

Misschief – My reactions are that you are so busy getting ready you miss the bus/plane.

This is often to do with missing an opportunity. Not being ready to effectively be part of a relationship or situation. Sometimes problems or attitudes we have that stand in the way of being able to maintain a love relationship or take an opportunity that comes along. The bad blood situation could bring about attitudes that stand in the way of getting on and using the opportunities and talents you have.

Both the bus and the plane suggest you are ready – almost – for a big life change. Maybe a mixture of the techniques explained in these two might help you out of the tied down position - http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/example-15-life-changes/ - http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/secrets-power-dreaming/

Hi Omega – Feelings of awe and wonder shows you are beginning to leave the inner world of stress and trauma behind. It is a beginning of endless wonder.

The guy entering your dreams, seems to me your real lover and soul mate – the inner male. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/archetype-of-the-animus-jungs-view-of-the-male-in-the-female/

You often feel distrust because it is natural for most people to feel even fear as they begin to enter the world of their own inner hugeness – and he is certainly is a mega influence for you. In fact, as many people’s awareness reaches beyond what they feel is their normal self they feel scared. Such resistances cause us to create awful dreams and fears as a means of avoiding our own inner world and its wonders. We feel that we will be swallowed up and we will die. It is important to say that when we meet the experience of powerlessness through becoming aware of the hugeness of your Life, which we are usually unaware if, it feels like something alien or attacking and it is a shock.

And this crap you are talking about, “I'm not pretty enough for him and he's successful and I'm not.” Some of the most attractive and successful women didn’t have looks. Looks and breasts, alluring figures and ‘pretty face’ are mostly for women with not much else to offer. It is women with energy, creativity, passion that are worth their weight in gold. We each have unlimited potential, which is limited by our body’s health, our upbringing programs, our own lack of belief in self, and also the thoughts such as those you are entertaining about your looks. See http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/martial-art-of-the-mind/

You are holding yourself back with him. 'I have no home’, he says. A sure sign he is an expression of a larger awareness. "Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." He is telling you about http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/extending-your-awareness/

He is leading you to experience the wonder and awe. Yield to the attraction. It all comes from a huge part of you, the Heavens, the eclipse, the old man, are all images indicating a hugeness we all have , and put symbols on to cover up our own poverty  - when you are rich inside.

Ivyitsme – Wow – you’ve been one busy lady – in your dream life.

Meeting such a person you met, such a strong attraction usually comes because there is a lot you have to share – if you can get it going – not always easy. I remember a young woman came into the room I was in and sat near me. Both of us began to experience our body vibrating. The woman said, slightly panicky, “What are you doing to me?” I had only once before experienced such a strong reaction, so said “I don’t know.” Where upon she got up and left. As I said, not always easy.

Without saying it is often about past life connections, we have behind and mingled with our small lives as a person, a huge self whose awareness is more global, and can be in contact with and engineer such meetings. You can explore this by using things like http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson and http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/using-your-intuition-1/

Then you met a horse, a reindeer with long and big antlers, a rabbit and an elephant. All in one night?

In a dream it suggests you are meeting the influence of the animals that are a part of our own evolutionary process. To fully explain this here would take too long, so please read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/brain-levels-and-dreams/
 
Meeting a dream elephant is a very big deal.

Example: I was on a road and noticed that a magnificent elephant had appeared. It had enormous tusks and ears, the latter being powdered with blue dust and adding tremendously to its impact. As it was coming in my direction I was frightened and began to run. I ran off the road, over a fence into a field. I thought the elephant would be stopped by the fence. It wasn’t. It walked straight through it after me. Then I tried to climb a low bank back to the road. The elephant was drawing nearer and I was so frightened I could hardly move to climb the bank. The elephant caught hold of me and I suddenly realised it wasn’t going to destroy me, but wanted, despite it being a magnificent, wild and powerful beast, to sit me on its back. I was still frightened however and ran to a doctor’s surgery. The elephant came and, thrusting its trunk into the surgery, drew me out to it. 

Our animals are there to help us if we do not run in fear. The stolen elephant may be either other people’s opinions about your way of life and beliefs interfering in your own natural processes, or another aspect of you that is in opposition with your conscious self. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/autonomous-complex/

The animal coming back to you is you beginning to maintain the contact with the huge instinctive knowledge we all have that most people cannot even believe in. It is largely linked with a woman’s great power sexually. Something that I have seen often before, is how, particularly women I suppose, have often failed to understand the great power they have in their instinctive sexual drives.  Those drives link them with their ability to create and be creative.  But what I see is that those drives need not be expressed through producing child.  This does not mean they need to be frustrated or repressed, but that they be accepted and directed into another direction.  It means being fully aware of the sexual dynamics of interrelations, in business, in work, in everyday dealings with people.

It is a very great dream and needs a lot of work to fully understand. Dream images are like icons on a computer screen - You have to ‘click’ on your dream images to make them come alive. Thinking about them doesn't work. You need to open yourself to the magic of them. Try using techniques described in http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/practical-techniques-for-understanding-your-dreams/

Mischief – First of all, in a dream it is fine to kill your mother or father. If you fail to kill them it shows that you are still holding on to them in a dependent way – or maybe you have too many Christian type feelings about being nice. Dreams are a safe place to let all hell break loose.

In the example below Audrey’s height shows her as a child. She is releasing anger about the attitudes and situations her father forced ‘down her throat’.

To kill parents is to be free of the introverted restraints and ready made values gathered from our parents, at some time in our growth we may kill or bury them in our dreams. Although some people are shocked by such dreams, they are healthy signs of emerging independence. Old myths of killing the chief so the tribe can have a new leader depict this process. When father or mother is ‘dead’ in our dream, we can inherit all the power gained from whatever was positive in the relationship.
Seeing parent drunk, incapable or foolish: Another means of gaining independence from internalised values, or stultifying drives to ‘honour’ or admire father or mother.

Example: ‘My father was giving me and another woman some medicine. Something was being forced on us. I started to hit and punch him in the genitals and when he was facing the other way, in the backside. I seemed to be just the right height to do this and I had a very angry feeling that I wanted to hurt him as he had hurt me.’ Audrey V.

You need  to remember that any dream character is not the actual person – so you are playing tricks in yourself. For whenever we dream its images are not like real life, because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but is an image like on a cinema screen, so that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear; so, all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind.

Another piece of information - Many people do not realise that they have an inner mother equally as powerful as an external mother. You have taken in millions of bits of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences along with all the feelings or problems met by loving and living with your mother, and they are a major influence in your early life, and in a few cases the child never becomes independent from its mother at any age. This is true even if your mother was never there for you – you still have all the memories of her not being there for you filed under ‘Mother’. The memories and experience we gather unconsciously change us and are not lost. It is part of you and is symbolised in dreams as a person or event. Such an inner mother can appear in dreams because you are still deeply influenced by what you hold within you.  The inner mother can also signify what has been received via genes passed on or ancestral influences.

Chris suggested you share your feelings, thoughts and intentions with a trusted friend or therapist. The best way I have found is to share with a trusted friend using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/peer-dream-group/ I ran a group using this approach, and afterwards a woman came forward and told me she was a Jungian psychotherapist. She went on to say she was fed up with her fellow Jungians tearing her dream to pieces, so she was going back to London and was going to start a Peer Dream group to actually experience the meaning if her dreams.

Dear Patricia – Thank so much for telling me/us about your book. To let people know that there is a way through such human problems as you describe is a wonderful thing to do.

You know that I am not the only contributor on Dreamhawk, so if you can write something, a feature, about your journey I will consider publishing it. Obviously, put links to your book, even Facebook. Every little helps.

“Human life itself is strange and mysterious, and because dreams display the workings of our mind and imagination, they are among the most mysterious and fascinating aspects of our life. We can begin to appreciate what our wonderful dream creator can do when we realise that every night we create five or more unique dreams. Tony Buzan emphasises this by saying that the complexity and scope of the human brain is beyond belief. He goes on to say that even comparing it with the vastness and intricacy of a galaxy is a modest analogy. This is because our three and a half pound brain mass have in it about ten billion nerve cells. Each of these cells can link with any of the others through patterned connections which outnumber in scope the atoms in the universe. As we think, as we experience and feel responses, as we create thoughts and dreams, our brain flashes through these unimaginable number of patterned connections thousands of times each second. This is beyond our normal ability to imagine, despite the fact it is happening to us personally.”

Here is a possible quote – but choose any you think will suit your flow.

Tony  :) ;D >:( :o 8) ::) :-*

Misschief  - Welcome.

It’s not eccentric to have dreams, whether violent, murderous, sexy, or way out. We are all dreamers here, and have experienced everything in the way of dreaming.

Anyway, from the dreams you mentioned, I think we may have things to share.

Please look at  http://dreamhawk.com/relationship-sex/beware-of-love/ and http://dreamhawk.com/relationship-sex/learning-to-love/

Having worked as a therapist for twenty or more years, I find the first one was used again and again in helping people. Also you cannot hope to find love in a partner , unless you have allowed it to flow from you.

Questions about dreams / Re: I am a male - strange dream
« on: May 19, 2017, 11:14:24 AM »
E – I’ll do the best I can, but it might seem strange stuff to you – but it is a strange dream.

When we dream about person communicating with us it can be distorted by our view of what our associations with the person are. Our own view of life becomes a starting point for dream symbolism, but our dream process arrives from a very different world than the world of waking life. Our waking world is one of forms of people, animals and thousands of things, all in time and space. But our dream self is trying to communicate from a world without form, time or space. Please read before reading on http://dreamhawk.com/news/there-is-a-huge-change-happening/ and http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

So, your dream uses images, scenes and events as ways of communicating things to you. It does this because you have feelings and ideas about those images that make sense to you, yet are trying to communicate very different realisations. 

The fight you lost is the fight to survive as a person, not a body. You lost but you felt that you could have won. Of course you are a winner seen from the ‘big’ view of what you are. Millions of sperm cells started to race to the wonderful female egg cell. But the female egg is picky, and chooses the best sperm with full DNA. But what is growing is a seed that has been alive since the beginning of life on Earth, and carries with it, like any seed, the pattern developed over millions of years, the essence of thousands of lives that survived war, famine, the extremes of seasons and world upheavals. So you are the latest version of that incredible journey – what a fight! In a sense you lost the latest fight because you had not accepted that Life has a lot more of you than you have accessed so far, and your dream was introducing you to MORE.

If you can accept that you are as a personality, only a tiny part of what you have inherited from that incredibly journey of your ancestors, and that most of you is unconscious, and that it is available to become conscious. But because it is unknown to you it seems ‘alien’ – and so in dream imagery you met an alien and it said that he is your body guard and that he’s been watching you your entire life waiting for the right time.

The huge part of you that the seed left in you is a product of Life, and Life has levels of sentience, and so the Huge that you have within you, also has a much greater awareness and was always watching and trying to communicate. And now that you are ready it has.

As for the princess thing its a part of  your larger self - see http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/archetype-of-the-animus-jungs-view-of-the-male-in-the-female/

What you can do – well, here is a start http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/extending-your-awareness/

Questions about dreams / I am a male - strange dream
« on: May 19, 2017, 11:09:39 AM »
So I'm male and I had a dream I was in a in a MMA match in which I and the person I was to fight had the first match up of the many people there to fight in the line up we are all dressed as super heroes and I was batman and the dude I was to fight is spider man and I ended up losing and so after losing I leave to get a smoke and I sit down across from this big dude I've never met before at a table outside of the MMA building. And as I sit and light my smoke I take a few puffs he begins to talk to me about the match and I tell him I could have beaten the dude in the spider man outfit if I'd have done this that and the other differently; and he tells me in a kind way that I couldn’t have beaten him. I’ve finished my smoke by this point and it was my last one so I asked if I could bum one off him and he tries to give me his last one but I decline taking his last smoke and thank him.

Its at this point I see him looking around as if he’s worried about something, he tells me its a good thing I lost and I was about to ask why when we see 3 men in black suites (guards from the MMA match) walking towards us. He asks me to come with him so we could get away from them. I felt I could trust him for some reason. So I go with him and we run to his mudded out car and hop into the passenger seat and we speed out of there; and its at this point they start chasing us by car as well as a monster truck that could flatten us if it runs over us (and that’s what they had planned). I ask him why they are chasing him (I wanted to help him) he says they are not after him but they ARE after me, and that he’s here to protect me.

We get onto the interstate and go a few miles before the monster truck catches up to us and is about to run us over so the big dude offers his hand to me and asks me to take it (I assumed he had a plan of escape). So as I reach for his hand I see its kind of blue green in color (was a normal human hand before) and he only has 3 oddly shaped fingers (alien hand I guess). I take his hand and next thing I know we bust out the window shield just in time to escape the truck flattening us and we are flying threw the air (dude is flying us with no wings or anything that would make sense as to why we are able to fly). I look at him and he’s all changed now with that blue green skin that’s kind of see threw with big fins around his neck and 3 fingers on each hand. We are flying for a short time before he lands away from the guys chasing me and I ask him what he is (I still trust him by this point) and he tells me he’s my body guard and that he’s been watching me my entire life waiting for the right time (kind of riddle like). Then he places his hand on my chest and I take on a new form. The form of a pinkish red female alien. He tells me I'm the princess of our world and that they needed to hide me away (for reasons unknown to me) and to keep me safe they made me look human and wiped my memories and replaced them with fake ones so I wouldn’t be found. But now they have found me and its no longer safe on earth anymore so its time to leave.

I wake up after this in a cold sweat and I'm so confused because I’m a straight guy with a wife and a daughter so why would I be dreaming I’m a girl alien princess? I’m also vary distrusting so that I would hop into a car with a stranger is vary unlike me. I really hope you know what this all means because it kind of has me messed up about all this XD

When leading a huge group of people on a convention, I witnessed an Arabic guru figure get everybody to repeat loudly - "Everything is True - Nothing is true."

It stuck in my mind, and seeing the huge cosmic duality we are mixed up in I gradually saw how true it is. It points to the balance, even the marriage or blending between light and dark, female and male, Good and Evil, conscious and unconscious, high and low, body and spirit - and on and on.

Thanks Chris - My longest ever friend on DreamHawk.

Something that has been on my mind recently, is a quote from a book I read maybe forty years ago - The Secret Oral Teachings in Tibetan Buddhist Sects, by Alexandra David-Neel.

"This fact is constantly recalled to the pupils by the Masters who explain the traditional Secret Oral Teaching to them. They never tire of repeating the classic simile of the two chains. Whether one is bound by an iron chain or by a golden chain means, in both cases, to be bound. The activity used in the practice of virtue is the chain of gold while that utilized in evil deeds is the iron chain. Both imprison the doer."

“He who has shaken off the two chains, that of good and that of evil, he is a Brahman.” "A brahman is he who has acquired the knowledge of the Brahman”, that is to say of the Absolute Being, the Supreme Truth. What then is this activity from which one ought to abstain?—It is the disordered activity of the mind which, unceasingly, devotes itself to the work of a builder erecting ideas, creating an imaginary world in which it shuts itself like a chrysalis in its cocoon."

Sorry - I couldn't help myself  :)  :)  :)
