Dream Interpretation / Re: Drive
« on: Today at 08:44:02 AM »
Chris – You are still very much into the power struggle side of your experience. So you missed the excellent start of your dream. You in fact are very capable of handling your own direction as YOU. Also up ahead you see yourself driving a golden car – a sure sign of future success – and you are in control.

Still further ahead a road curves to the left. In most dreams the right is the outer world we know through our body – the left is the inner world we know if we explore the world within us, and the road is the journey of our life. Another promise for the future?

The Indian food you partake of is nourishment from your inner life. See http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/inner-world/#MakesInner

The darker man and child is influence you carry within you. When I was in India I saw many men as you described - their will to power over others. Shop owners, always men, sat in a large chair in the middle of the shops, ordering the women assistants about, even shouting at them. Always keeping their hands on all the money taken – very, very officious.

Perhaps you can take time to imagine the boy disregarding his father and driving well. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/example-15-life-changes/

The Bahai faith may represent a future which is a synthesis of all religions, but the dogma of none.

Dream Interpretation / Re: lying in a bed covered in rice
« on: April 25, 2017, 09:09:00 AM »
Monica – There is so much in your dream, but it all centres about the effects left in your life by one individual. Something I have found bout this is that when you think about a friend or a person you meet, you are only taking in your thoughts, impressions and feelings about them. So many people do not realise that they have an inner person equally as powerful as the external person you know. You have taken in millions of bits of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences along with all the feelings or problems met by meeting or living with them, and they are what make you the person you are.  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 person can appear in dreams because you still carry the memories or impressions of them, and so they influenced what you hold within you.

The huge things about this is that dreams constantly attempt to integrate such influences in a harmonious way – this is necessary as we cannot get rid of such memories. So it seems that is what your dream was doing.

Rice – sometimes associate rice with weddings, but there are so many people’s associated memories, so I would suggest you hold the image of the bed and rice and use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson or look up http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/seed/

Sean – I wonder whether it is what is mentioned in Sleep Paralysis - Many people experience feeling paralysed while they are partially awake but dreaming. This may be due to the fact that voluntary movements are inhibited during periods of the dream process. All brain signals to the voluntary muscles are stopped. Therefore, if we become slightly awake and attempt to move at that time we feel paralysed. This is not sensed as a problem if we are unconsciously involved in a dream. While dreaming another level of will takes control of the body, so any sounds or movements made are not from ones conscious will.

Dream Interpretation / Re: dream abandonment
« on: April 21, 2017, 10:41:54 AM »
Tracey – When we dream of death many of us cannot help but face a very confused situation. It is because all of our life experiences are built upon our body’s three-dimensional experience. But the world of death is so completely different, for to takes place in the fourth or higher dimensions – which most of us have no experience of, and so it is like being blind. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

So, when we dream about a dead person communicating with us it can be distorted by our view of what death is – or our associations with the dead person. So, if we believe in ourselves that when a person dies they are finished it creates our own view of death, or one that is a mixture of a real communication and our beliefs. Such thoughts, even if unconscious, can cause such dreams of seeing the person we know has died being seen alive in their coffin and assuring us that they are very much alive. Most people we know in waking life, and then dream about, are an inner person we carry within us and use in our dreams. An inner person is the collection of all the memories and experiences of them – not them as a person.

Maybe you hadn’t been in in touch with her for years because perhaps you didn’t give time to communicate with her and listen for her replies. In some degree, you have to open to her dimension. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/going-beyond/

Communication maybe has stopped possibly because of the pain of losing your daughter. Our dreams tend to show all sorts of barriers we erect stopping any form of communication. Ask your dreams to clarify why the link has stopped in your dreams. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/incubating-dreams/

Dream Interpretation / Re: Spider bite
« on: April 21, 2017, 10:18:00 AM »
Sharon - I am simply adding to the advice Mela gave.

I found that hitting any thing in our dreams is actually hitting aspects of oneself. The reason is that dreams occur in a very different dimension that waking life. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

So, no wonder the creature bit you and left lumps. So, dream images are ways of communicating via our associations not actual things or people. In the world of dreams our most intimate fears and longings are given an exterior life of their own in the form of the people, objects, creatures and places of our dream. Meet them by using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

Mela - The ones you dislike are usually the important ones.

All the images, people, animals, places we see in our dreams, are simply your own feelings, fears, hopes and wonder projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind as images. So, it makes sense to take the image of your dream person, thing or animal back into you and own it. In that way, you are meeting and dealing with the things about yourself you are not owning or conscious of. That is why dreams are often difficult to understand, because we are hiding things from ourselves.

Dream Interpretation / Re: Prom Dream
« on: April 20, 2017, 09:53:32 AM »
Well Barnbum – I am guessing the Prom is all about being seen. And being seen either at your best or in some costume that says something about your feelings or personality.

The preparation seems a bit like a dress rehearsal for getting married. And sneaking in is another expression of your personal feelings. Is it to do with some level of uncertainty about yourself? The men leaving seems to suggest that – perhaps saying that you were not confident to take on a man face to face?

The giddiness is also a sign of feel overstimulated in some way. This might indicate a feeling that you are bombarded by new impression or changes. The sense of balance in relationship with others, and the world. Fear of falling, sense of strain, or being on the edge of falling in love, or out of love.

The dream is a re-enactment of the Prom feeling. Excitement, anxiety, confusion and hope all at once. Try using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/secrets-power-dreaming/

Greetings / Re: Greetings from the East :)

Here's one of mine.

I had an extraordinary out of body experience. I had gone to bed early and longed to visit my mother in London, I being in Germany. Then I suddenly felt as if I were shooting upwards and experienced a feeling of coming out of pressure and was now free – like a cork out of a bottle.

I was then awake and looking down at my sleeping body and suddenly felt terrified (I realised afterwards it was terror that I was dying). Then I remembered reading about experiences such as this and was laughing uncontrollably because it was such a release from terror.

I was then flying across the German countryside, where I was living, curled up with my knees to my chest. I noticed as I passed over the rural countryside what looked like radiations emerging from several places; they were a bit like ripples on the surface of water when a stone has been thrown into it. But these ripples were three dimensional, and I wondered if they were emerging from people, perhaps praying.

After that I was flying over the Dutch coast, and could clearly see the many ships. But suddenly I found myself standing in our sitting room at home in London. It was such an astonishing experience I stood in shock looking down at my body, feeling it and trying to understand. My body felt solid and real and I was dressed in outdoor clothes not my pyjamas. Then with great enthusiasm I looked up and saw my mother sitting alone knitting, our Alsatian dog, Vince was lying asleep in front of the gas fire.

I felt sure my mother would see me because I felt physically present and absolutely and vitally awake in a way I had never experienced before. So, I called out to her, “Mum, look what has happened.” She stopped knitting for a moment but obviously didn’t see me or hear me. So, I felt if I shouted this would reach her. “Mum” I shouted, “look it’s me Tony”. There was no obvious sign that she had heard me, but two things did happen.

One was that I saw or realised that she had an upstairs side of her and a downstairs side. Her upstairs (conscious) side had no awareness of me, but her downstairs side (unconscious) gave me a wonderful welcome and I had the awareness of us knowing each other in a formless love. It felt like we blended together. Then at the same time my dog Vince must have heard me shout, because he woke, and came rushing to me where I stood behind our settee. He was so full of love for me he rushed around barking and showing his joy. I later heard from my mother that she had had been alone that night as my father was out, and she had seen the dog get up and bark and jump around behind the settee for no apparent reason.

I learned enormous and important lessons from that. I realised that having no physical body the living cannot usually see or hear us. They need physical sound to know we are present, yet another part of my mother knew and responded. So, I saw that if she had thought of me and spoken to me I would know, even though she might not be able to hear my reply – unless she was a medium or learned to be aware of thoughts. The reason being that is because in the body most people cannot communicate via thoughts. I also learnt that I had an inner life as real to me as the ordinary waking life. This inner life was a fusion of the bodiless awareness and the life of form we experience in the body. This was obvious because my sleeping body was dressed in pyjamas, and my body I knew in the experience was dressed in outdoor clothes. Also, it was not limited to space and time as the physical body is – shown by my sudden shift across miles to my home in London. Somehow it stood between two very different worlds of experience. I say that because although I was invisible to my mother, I was visible to my dog who had much finer awareness.

Other great lessons I learned that day was that according to popular teachings about out of the body experiences (OBE), I should have been connected by a ‘silver cord’ to my physical body. Also, it was said that the extended body was a copy of the physical. My projected body was in fact different, with different clothes, and in fact was an extension of how I thought of myself. In other words, I was in a world of thoughts, actually the dream world that we are usually 'asleep' in, and could in fact have been any shape. So, the experience of having a silver cord link is probably also a mental creation through anxiety of not being connected to their body, which most people identify as themselves.

Dream Interpretation / Re: Airplane Dreams
« on: March 28, 2017, 01:36:44 PM »
Michy – Of course we have similar dreams – many, many grey dreams, and beyond count airplane dreams. And many of them I explored – not by thinking about them, but by stripping of and diving into them. You should try it by using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

To understand what I am about to say, it is important to realise that we as humans, like other mammals, in our earliest years particularly, still learn like most mammals do, and that is not verbal at all. A massive amount of information is absorbed from our parents without words, any effort or awareness. An important aspect of this is that whatever of such information is held in the present generation, it is an accumulation of skills and responses learned over many generations, and is the fundamental survival strategies of that particular family or group line.

The greyness, and airplanes, when I explored them, where things that I had inherited from my father in particular, things I had no awareness of beforehand, but my dreams reported.

It was or is, a particular attitude or habitual response. And it sounds like you have picked this pessimistic attitude up from somewhere, probably early on.

Example: I am in a landscape and notice that everything is brown; the whole world is brown and lifeless. There is also a feeling of solemnity or dullness. I have enough lucidity to wonder why the world of my dream is so brown and dull. As I ask this I become more aware of what feeling the brownness expresses. It is seriousness - with no room for humour or fun. The feeling deepens, real enough and clear enough to look at and understand. I see it is my father’s attitude to life that I have unconsciously inherited. I realise how anxious he always felt about life, and how I took this in. That is how I became a ‘brown’ person. I see too that I do not need to be either brown or serious anymore.

General Discussion / Re: Resentment, hate and how to forgive
« on: March 28, 2017, 11:47:21 AM »
Miephenk – Some years ago, I had an experience that let me see – not thought – that everything has an equal opposite in our universe. This was a huge shock to me. The shock was that no idea, feeling or fear was in itself true, because the opposite was also true.

The awful thing for me was that I was in my second marriage, and felt love and commitment were very important, as of course they are. But what I saw as certainly as I knew myself, was that we live in a dual world, so everything opposite is also true. It was true that I was committed to my wife – it was also true that commitment was of no consequence. Everything matters – Nothing matters – Duality.

Anything said to you by your brother in law, from this point of view makes it seem like nonsense – as of course it is seen from any point of view. Especially as it was said by a Christian. See http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/martial-art-of-the-mind/

Journey – Well, the couple from India are from a strange or different way of life – it indicates your usually unknown or inner life. See http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/inner-world/#MakesInner

It often deals with things you didn’t know before. But in your dream, it is about important or precious feelings – the ring – that you do not want to lose. I believe a ring for many women is their feelings of being joined and loved.

You face feelings of losing that sense, but your inner life – the Indian – shows you another sense of being loved; love not connected with your ex-husband, but love that arises from within you, and you never took it off – the ring. But of course, you still have the ring/love connected with your ex-husband.

Is 2/11/2017 the American way of saying the second month of the eleventh day in 2017. Or is it the British understanding, the second day of November 2017? I wonder because of the British money which was then changed to US dollars.

Anyway, the end of the dream, which started with the theme of moving – a real change in you and your life – goes on to deal with the building you are in crumbling. About change again, because when we go through a big inner change of growth, it often feels like we are anxious about what is happening to us. This may lead you to feel as if you have lost all your potential, energy or personal resources, power to change things or do things – your money. But of course, another aspect of potential, the foreign woman gives you contact again.

Dream Interpretation / Re: The Vast Ocean Before Me
« on: March 20, 2017, 09:08:33 AM »
Chris – What I am about to say, is just a suggestion from a different point of view. Take it only if it is of value to you.

Fighting takes so much energy. It is your choice that is important. What you fight suggests you see it as real and important. But you are everything and so all inclusive, the vast ocean, so what are you fighting?

The Vigil
This is the darkness of night,
I stand in vigil and vigilant.
It is my chosen task to be the one
Who through this time of shadows
Remains awake and dwells
For this season amongst
The corridors of memories and thoughts,
Watching over those whose lives
I celebrate and desire to be.
And in me rises the light that
Keeps at bay the creatures
That might otherwise haunt these hours.
It is the primal light of Life,
The drive to be, the
Innate power to exist.
And as I am the sentinel
Of the darkness,
The eyes of my sleeping kin,
I know I must remain alert
And keep alive awareness
That I am the urge to be.
I know too that dawn,
The light that changes all
So magically with its easy touch,
Will come despite the
Seeming endless watch I keep.
And in that new day
We can live another life.

Dylan – I know the inner feelings that lie behind such dreams, for I went through them myself.

I think that what causes your dreams are nothing to do with your wife’s behaviour, but things in you that are very deeply set. To understand this, you need to understand that dreams are very seldom about waking life events, but are due to lessons learnt painfully, or hurts that arose long ago. For dreams see your whole past and its influences in the present.

When we love and trust someone, as you obviously do with your wife, it opens you to the earliest experience of learning to love and trust someone - which in your case is the tremendous sense of desertion, probably caused by something that happened with your mother.

If you think of the feelings – not images – in your dreams, and trace it back and back to when it first occurred, you may find and feel the cause. But maybe useful using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/secrets-power-dreaming/ might help. Also, read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/habits/ - especially number 3 of the list quoted.
