I had a dream of my mother-she’s alive. But in my dream she died. Normally, I do not feel in my dreams-or maybe I'm unaware of my feeling while I dream, but this time my feelings were so strong and I felt alone, and the dream felt real. When I awoke I first questioned if she was alive and then began howling. What does this mean? I can’t shake off the feeling I had in my dream. Please, please REPLY.

Healing Dreams / Healing of the Incurable?
« on: April 11, 2012, 09:48:51 AM »
During a period when I had just gone through divorce, the starting of a new relationship, and taking over a tumble-down property, I developed a permanent pain in my right forearm. I talked about this to a doctor who diagnosed it as tennis elbow. He told me there was nothing I could do except avoid exertion.

As I was working to renovate our house, that was difficult, and the pain continued for six months without any change. I decided to ask my unconscious if there was anything I could do to help the condition. It was a technique that was accessible using the self-regulatory  processes described later. I had used this approach many times before, so had some experience of it. Holding in mind the pain in the arm I waited for the responses to arise from within. Soon, spontaneous fantasies and ideas bubbled into awareness, almost as if someone were explaining the situation to me. I was led to understand that during the past year I had not only been working hard physically to renovate the building, but because of divorce, family conflict within my new relationship, plus the change of home, I had experienced much stress and anger. During my sawing, planning and hammering, I had discharged much of this anger and stress. As with any hard work, the cells in my right arm had broken down, but the anger and tension had prevented the cells from regenerating adequately.

As this insight emerged I could see what a shrewd summary of my recent unconscious attitudes it was. The emerging explanation went on to say that each cell is a tiny individual life, and in the body, they each take on a particular task. Some live as workers in the muscles; some are thinking beings in the brain, and some act as transformers, as in the liver. Each cell depends upon the others to co-operatively share food, oxygen and pleasure. The cells in my arm didn’t mind the hard work, but they also needed to share the pleasures of eating, music and love making. I had been unconsciously deluging them with anger and tension, and denying them laughter and relaxation.

I started to use this information. For instance when I ate I would consciously allow the pleasure I felt in my mouth to be felt by the rest of my body, particularly the right arm. When I made love, I attempted to relax and let my whole body feel the pleasure, not keep it in the genitals. I frequently concentrated on my right arm, relaxing it and allowing pleasure felt elsewhere to flow to it. Within a week it was completely free of the pain, and the problem has never returned.

The technique of consciously co-operating with or listening to the processes of life active in the unconscious, and allowing them to become known, I call Coex (LifeStream). I have coined the word from two other words -consciousness and expansion- because the process of LifeStream is partly that of expanding our awareness into areas of ourselves previously unconscious. It holds in it many exciting possibilities, such as:- 1] Tapping the activity of natural forces in us toward healing of physical and psychological problems.  2] Gaining information which we hold within us, but which is usually unconscious.  3] Using the creative process of the unconscious to enrich our work and relationships.  4] Tuning into the body’s self regulating processes to discover a spontaneous form of exercise or dance which releases tension and keeps the body fit.  5] Through expanded awareness discovering our connections with the rest of life and cosmos.

I explained this fully in my book http://dreamhawk.com/body-and-mind/mind-and-movement-introduction/ and in the features http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/the-lifestream/ and http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/lifes-little-secrets/

I had a dream that I was in a park and I saw a little girl she was about the age of 3 ish and her name was Julie. Julie was a little angry girl with pigtails. So I held her tight and was mothering this little girl and asked her what’s wrong she didn’t respond. So I made a pinky promise that her secret would be safe with me so she told me she wants to be born. And 3 in half years ago I terminated a pregnancy I don’t know what this means. Lizette

Lizette – To help understand what your dream is about I want to quote a piece in my book Mind and Movement. It is about a woman I worked with who was sent to me by her doctor because she felt depressed.

“The movements – which were part of her therapy – were much stronger this time and her whole body became involved. Her knees drew up and her abdominal area domed. She made very little sound – some people are extremely vocal – but she was intensely absorbed in the movements for nearly an hour before they stopped and she lay peacefully. She then sat up and told me she had experienced something extraordinary. She said that four years earlier she had been divorced and went to live in Spain with her children. While there she had an affair with a Spaniard and became pregnant. Because she already had children and was not wanting to stay with the man, she had an abortion. During her body movements it had seemed to her as if the life in her had said the abortion had hurt it. It then led her through the spontaneous movements to complete the process of birth of that baby, and in that way she now felt whole. The process of birth which had been cut off had been able to complete itself.”

It seems to me the soul still wants to be born. The whole thing shows how sex should not be done without care. It is an enormous thing that involves us in worlds that are usually invisible to us.

I think you should speak to that little unborn girl and ask her is there no other way? Could she find another woman to bear her and give birth to her? Imagine yourself in the dream, while awake and talk to her. Tell her you are sorry you put her in such anger with you, and ask her to help you understand the situation.

Healing Dreams / Memory before I was Born
« on: February 28, 2012, 11:27:13 AM »
Here is a wonderful dream sent me.

I too have had a prebirth experience I have spoke about this only to a select few do to ridicule when I tried to talk about it to my family, I remember being in a open area there was a round marble seat that circled a round dome shaped glass, I remember trying to look out it and all I saw were fluffy clouds,I remember a spirit guide talking to me in telepathy and I too did this as well i remember being told I was to come to earth to be born, I did not want to do this however I was told I had no choice,I was given the option of two families and I was told the first one would have alot of money and I would need for nothing the second one was a young couple who i was told would offer love and family, the other would be lacking in love I remember reluctanltly choosing the young couple, the spirit guiide told me he would help with my transition and at some point in my early years I would lose all memories of this, I remember begging him not to take away all of my memories and that is why I believe I am able to remember what i do. - Julie A Stearns

Julie – Thank you for sending such a wonderful dream/memory.

I see the ridicule of the many as a sign of not wanting to stand out when faced by the authoritarian statement we face in daily life. Anybody who is strong enough in their own life direction will face such criticism. Sometimes it also means that you take a different path to others.

The reason we forget all the past is that when we are born we develop new memories with a new physical brain. The new brain then is a new life for us, and usually shuts out any contact with our spirit in which all our memory is stored.

Do you feel you have something to do in this life? Usually this is a theme or interest that while it does not fit with what your outer life demands of you, is something that bubbles up again and again.

Dream Interpretation / Stunted man carrying a body
« on: February 19, 2012, 01:49:03 PM »
This is a woman's dream told me over the telephone that I found so interested I posted it here.

In this dream I was with a male figure who seemed of stunted growth and was quite short.  He was bent beneath the heavy burden of a huge weight of a huge burden he carried on his back which caused him to keep falling on the ground at every short distance. His purpose was to reach a certain destination but his burden harried him all the way. His destination seemed to be a building on the distant horizon.

                        I was the observer, but also the participant.  He eventually fell to the ground unable to rise, he asked me to remove the body from his back - the burden he had been carrying; to pick it up and carry it, to run with it.  As I lifted the body from his back he got up and ran toward his destination. I also ran, carrying the body, toward the same destination.

Dream Interpretation / You are more than your brain
« on: January 15, 2012, 09:14:00 AM »
For many years I felt that we are more than a physical brain. Then on December 8th of 2008 I had personal proof when I experienced a devastating stroke. I lost all movement on the right side of my body and also loss of speech. But I realised that although my brain was severely damaged I, Me, still existed whole behind it all. I realised that brain damage is only damage to the ability to control the body - it was not damage to me. So to speak, the car had broken down but me, the driver, was intact. I could get out of the car! See http://dreamhawk.com/body-and-mind/the-next-step-criticisms/#OBE

Sir Auckland Geddes, an eminent British Anatomist, describes his own experience of realising his brain is not him.

Example: Becoming suddenly and violently ill with gastro-enteritis he quickly became unable to move or phone for help. As this was occurring he noticed he had an ‘A’ and a ‘B’ consciousness. The ‘A’ was his normal awareness, and the ‘B’ was external to his body watching. From the ‘B’ self he could see not only his body, but also the house, garden and surrounds. He need only think of a friend or place and immediately he was there and was later able to find confirmation for his observations. In looking at his body, he noticed that the brain was only an end organ, like a condensing plate, upon which memory and awareness played. The mind, he said, was not in the brain, the brain was in the mind, like a radio in the play of signals. He then observed his daughter come in and discover his condition, saw her telephone a doctor friend, and saw the doctor also at the same time.
Sir Auckland Geddes, an eminent British Anatomist, describes his own OBE, which contains many of these features. See: second example in spiritual life in dreams.

A friend, Martyn Tucker told me, "I died twice 3 months ago 5 and 3 minutes, massive coronaries, but when I was dead, I was 100% conscious and definitely going somewhere and I was filled with the sweetest feeling I had ever felt, like every good experience together - I have no doubts anymore".

Here is a wonderful video showing how a mucked up brain is not the person behind it.

Healing Dreams / Chopping up my dog!!!
« on: December 28, 2011, 10:32:23 AM »
I saw myself chopping up my dog, and felt awful because or what I was doing; I chopped my dog into pieces.

Pete – This is an extraordinary dream, but it wouldn’t have meant much to me if we hadn’t talk about it and you explained the background of your feelings. As I woke this morning I had a clear intuition about your dream and what it means, and I see the process of our communication like one of those children's drawing books that you start with numbers that are just a shape. You gave me the shape and even the background colours, and then I filled in some of the pieces until we have both created a clear and colourful picture.

But to be clear about what I saw I have to start at the beginning  of ourselves as a human being – we all start physically from the primordial slime of our ancient world, a slime that we all go back to reproduce – the sperm and ovum. Then our journey begins and we go through the whole process of evolution, not just our body, but also the levels of expressed consciousness. And as far as I understand dreams, this self consciousness that we have only recently arrived at and are very vulnerable in, is only a new thing that has it roots in the animal kingdom, and all the way back to the very beginning of time.

So your beautiful dog that you hacked to pieces is an older version of self awareness – see http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=UmROo_oCpL4 if you feel dogs are not really an earlier form of human existence. But your dog connects back to your origins and its ancient instinctive awareness and so has a great deal to offer you, but you hacked it to pieces, understandably. That was because, as you explained, you are in a job of work that you constantly wish and desire to be out of; so here is my colouring action, you have to kill the urges you constantly get to get away from the work you do. And those urges are from your deeps, yet at the same time seem irrational because how else could you support your family in the work you do, which you rationally see as a loving act. But your deeper self sees it as an act of desperation and murder – a murder to the real instinctive you.

This is a healing dream because it points a way – more colouring. Your older levels of self, the dog which is a part of your brain – the mammalian brain http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/brain-levels-and-dreams/#mammalbrain – does not have all the ‘realistic’ information about the world you face, but it is intelligent and is ready to learn. As it has links with the very ancient foundation of you – call it instinct if you like, but it is more that that, and now has a human face it can link with. So instead of killing your wonderful dog, talk to it and explain exactly what your frustration and desires are. Do it in pictures and imagination and feelings if you can, for that is its language. Tell it, for it is not dead even though you chopped it up, that you are sorry for what you did, and ask it as a great hunter, to see if it can find a way for you to support your pups and mate – a language it understand so well – in a way that works with the situations you face now.

And good luck and blessings – remember that you are only a recent development in the journey of life, and Life is old and caring in the long run. So reach back into your long  past for all the support you can get.

Healing Dreams / Healing a dead Son
« on: November 14, 2011, 08:29:32 AM »
My 20 year old son, Max, died less than a month ago.

I had a strong feeling when I first learned of his death that he had remained “earth bound”. I can’t describe it exactly, but I felt very strongly that because his death was sudden and he wasn’t ready to go that he hadn’t moved on to the other side.

I have prayed for a sign from him and he came to me in my dreams the past two nights.

The first night he said he wasn’t dead and I couldn’t convince him otherwise. He even said that he wouldn’t be ready to go for another “year and a half”. But I got to hug him and feel him and it was him.

Last night he came to me at my house. He was sitting at the kitchen table and we just talked for a few minutes before I brought up the fact that he HAD to go into the light. He got a bit angry. Then I told him that I knew about the drugs in Utah and he hung his head in shame. Then I told him he overdosed. At first he disagreed, I began to think about things that I could show him that would make him understand…like stuff from his funeral, but then he understood. Like he knew what I was thinking and was kinda like “don’t bother, I get it.”

I started to cry and we hugged and I began to tell him about all the books that I’ve read on the afterlife so that he wouldn’t be scared. He hugged me and asked me if our souls would always be together and I said yes, that if you’re close on earth that means the souls always stay together.
We left my house then and went to the other side. He was leery of going so I told him that once he got there he would probably see grandma Josephine and grandma Jean and that Baxter, his old dog, would probably even be there.
I went further in with him, to try and find the souls he was meant to be with so that he wouldn’t be scared.
As we looked he began to feel more at ease. Drifting away from me and looking for himself.

Then a crashing booming voice said something, I don’t remember what, but I knew I had to leave. So I went back to the tunnel that we had come in through and Max came, with another young man, about his age, they were wildly happy….riding what kinda looked like skateboards, but not. He took me back through the tunnel. He said he understood and that the other soul that was there with him was his friend and that they wreak havoc on the other side playing pranks and acting rambunctious.

I started to cry and he hugged me so tight and I told him I loved him so much and he whispered in my ear “I will see you soon”. He was completely calm and not upset anymore…like someone saying, “see you tomorrow”…like time wasn’t a big deal.

I watched him skateboard away with the other soul and he turned back and gave me a huge smile and waved and I felt all over that he understood everything now.

The tunnel began to close in…getting smaller and smaller at his end of it so I had to turn around and walk through my side because I had to come back.

I knew, even in the dream that I had helped him get there.

Was this my sons spirit? Did I help him? I feel it was…and waking up today I feel better. I miss him terribly but I feel like he is safe and where he should be.

Is this just wishful thinking or was it my son?

Tony Crisp - dreamhawk.com
Run from May 1989 – Till Present (29 years) in Wales, UK

Many of the dreams in the Forum say they are started by Tony Crisp. That is because people can no longer post dreams in the Forum; so I occasionally receive dreams via messenger and in other ways. The reason is that  I am working on upgrading the entries/pages - there are over 6000 of them.

This a non-profit site and it is real dream interpretations which have generously been given in the past, for which we ask no payment, but also I am 83 and have been working away and need a rest, but will do a few Forum dreams. Please see https://dreamhawk.com/uncategorized/i-am-no-longer-interpreting-dreams/

If you feel like donating for what you receive from this site, you can do so by clicking on this PayPal link https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=JYTWAMC4LQLQ4&source=url


Also any comments put at the end of a feature may not be replied to. To be able to see such comments I would need to daily check the 6000 or so pages on this site every day. So, I suggest writing them to tonycrisp@yahoo.com

The dream dictionary is massive, and the thousands of entries can be searched and found by putting the word such as cat or marriage or man etc in the search box on all pages except the Forum. Subjects in the Forum which include words like garden or woman or zombies can be search for by using the search box at the top right of the page.

Also, any interpretation given is the best I can do and should not be taken as authoritative. They are suggestions given hopefully to help you find a greater insight into yourself. And even that is only a faltering step toward a full understanding of your dream. A dream, even a simple one, is a thing of wonder. The images in it are simply covers of massive books of information - or like a photograph of a living person. In other words the dream does not become alive until you yourself enter it. So some people will want to find that wonder, and can do so through using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson also you might like to use to explore your depths http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/

[/b][/size]
So PLEASE - PLEASE - do not put links to other sites or adverts in your replies. They will be deleted.

I write nearly all the information in the 6000 odd pages on the site and also the comments to people who write to dreamhawk.com. But I am backed technically by my son Leon Crisp. [/b] See https://dreamhawk.com/interesting-people/leon/

I am trying to bring Dream Dictionary and the whole site up to date. The site is a wonderful resource, and if you use it you can develop life skills that are incredibly useful. Also it has enormous information in http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site-2/

Why Dreams Are Essential See https://youtu.be/Tt7JdZTeCk4

About 7000 people pass through this site daily - so millions have shared the information.

If you cannot easily write in English, please type out your dream in your own language and use https://translate.google.com/ to put it into English.

Please also when writing your dream or question give us enough information - read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/give-us-enough-information/

It is important in reading the definitions of dream images to realise that not every possible meaning can be covered. So please see if you get the idea of what is being said by your dream and allow your own imagination/feelings to fill in the meaning. It helps to do this if you read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/practical-techniques-for-understanding-your-dreams/

Some people have kindly pointed out to me that many people do not understand a dream or how interpreting it works. We tend to believe for instance that the things we are scared of in our dreams are as real as outside things. But the people and animals you dream about are images your mind uses to try to describe something. 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 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. It helps if you can read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/summing-up/

Example: I was recently asked by a man who had given no thought to dreams how on earth you could extract any meaning from them. He was wearing a fairly old T-shirt, so I said, "OK, lets imagine you dreamt of your T-shirt, what would you make of that?"

After a while he said, "I don't know that I would make anything of it."

My response was to say, "Right, but now tell me where you bought the T-shirt, and what memories it has for you." Whereupon he told me, with some hesitation his memories of being in the USA, and that the shirt was part of memories that he didn't want to talk about. Not only did he realise he had very powerful associations with the T-Shirt, but he wanted to hide them.

The important point is that everything we see and deal with, every person, every imagined scene, has such a background of feelings and perhaps memories. It is exactly this background of feelings and information that the dream weaves its story from. It is these associations that are the language of our dreams. To understand them you need to become aware of the usually unconscious feeling responses you have in connection with every thing, place, person and animal you fill your dreams with.

Remember that dreams are just like computer games in which you get very involved and face monsters and kill or be killed and nothing has actually happened – you are still alive and unhurt. But in this wonderfully alive virtual reality of our dreams we are all playing the game of life – the game we play in which we face or run away from the things that scare us; in which we explore the depths of our existence or learn how to love – or simple meet a reflection of our own weakness and terror. For that is all it is – a magic mirror in which we see ourselves naked of pretense. So before you go ahead a good first step to understand your dream yourself is to read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/processing-dreams/

But here is some more information you can find regarding understanding your dreams.

Healing Dreams / Satan raped me
« on: October 13, 2011, 12:03:52 PM »
I copied this dream from the posts sent to Dream Dictionary. It is an example of a dream that can really worry or frighten people. But here is an example of dealing with it.

"I had a dream that there were demons in my house. While I was trying to rid my house of objects attached to the demons, Satan came to my house. He raped me and I was powerless to fight back and he said he was planting his seed. What does this mean? It is very disturbing. I am female, 35, recently had a major surgery and trying to recover. Lost my job, started taking antidepressants, and am a little distant from my husband and family. Bills are due and a lot of worries here also."

Here is my reply:

After many years of exploring dreams I know everything in a dream is projected as an image by your own fears and feelings. So the devils are probably all the stressful worries you are faced by, and if you can see them as that you will find a different relationship with them.

It is possible that you have an attitude of defeat at the moment. Listen, it is important that you do not give in to that feeling. You have tremendous strength in the image of Satan. Considering it is your own projection of fear it is your power turned against yourself, and that power can be used for healing you.

We all know now that when we feel happy and have pleasure our body produces substances that aid healing and give a feeling of living. But when we feel anxious and afraid we produce our body produces substances that can actually cause disease. See the example of Norman Cousins in http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/emotions/#hit1

So in the sense mentioned you had turned a tremendous energy of corruption back on yourself by your thoughts and worries. Satan is an image which in dreams usually depicts this turned back energy – in your case you had turned the sexual energy back on yourself in a destructive way. The seeds left in you are a form of destructive energy released by your body. So please, it is important to give yourself some pleasure, sexual if that is possible. It is vitally important to face the habits of worry and self criticism – for they are habits. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYYXq1Ox4sk

And here is a man’s dream where he faced the Devil/Satan and won.

"Satan attacked a woman. He was invisible. The woman turned black as he raped her. She didn’t die. At this point I woke and went to the toilet. On returning to bed I continued the dream, particularly wondering what I was in conflict with in the image of the Devil. I found it disturbing and frightening to be confronted by such a powerful opponent. Partly because of the rape, I realised it was held back sexuality. I then approached the ‘black’ woman with tenderness and this transformed the Devil into available energy, sexual or emotional. I tried this again and again. Each time it worked, and I could observe the connection between Satan and what I do with my sexuality. I had felt sex was evil and wouldn't have anything to do with it, and now felt a tenderness."

Healing Dreams / Meeting Dakota
« on: October 03, 2011, 10:25:06 AM »
I think I would like to mention how Dakota and I met. And I think the best way is to quote pieces from my book House  of the Ancestors. So here goes!

At the time my conscious thoughts about Dakota were that she was a likeable and unusual middle-aged woman.  She shared my interest in the inner life, but as far as I could understand, was coming to this from a very different direction than myself.  She had motivations and responses I did not understand at the time.  I felt I was failing to find what I call a “living connection” with her.  Some of my attempts and approaches seemed to fall flat.  At the same time I was giving her opportunity to drop the tentative contact we had.

So one day I dived into that ocean of mind to see if I could find her. And so I moved among the great creatures of this world, occasionally finding myself lost in and possessed by one of these leviathans, until liberation was found again by becoming naked awareness once more.

Then suddenly I felt the presence of Dakota with me in the ocean.  But I could not see her, and called out, “Dakota, can you hear me?  Are you aware of being here with me?”  There was no response, and I wondered if I was creating the feeling in some way.

But just as suddenly as her presence was felt everything changed.  In that realm where thoughts and emotions take on form, and form itself is fluid, Dakota and I faced each other as magnificent wolves.  And I, in the manner of wolves, put my head low to the ground and tail high in the posture of invited play.  Then we danced around each other in mock battle rushing headlong, bumping, rolling, pushing shoulder to shoulder, or breathlessly nose to nose.  I grabbing a stick in my mouth and throwing it in the air to distract her, or feigning indifference.  She, at each new twist of the dance, came back at me, ever resourceful, ever full of vigour and intensity.  And in the dance we discovered each other, tested strengths, explored responses, and found a living connection.

Then, when the dance was finished, we changed forms and expressed other qualities to each other in the shape of the Native American Indians.  As such I stood before my lodge as the elder of my tribe, greeting her and saluting her qualities.  For she wore the feathers showing her achievements as a wife maintaining her own family lodge; as a woman in her culture who had carved a position for herself in the world of work; as someone who reached beyond her own nearest kin and gave of herself.  So I saluted her and invited her into my lodge, and she accepted.

It was with those experiences freshly imprinted on me that I emerged from the ocean eager to tell Dakota of what had arisen.  I carefully wrote the events in my journal, then copied them to send as an email.  But just as I was about to send, an email arrived from Dakota.  Its title read, “Dances with Wolves.”  And the message was a quote from Nietzsche.  It said, “Those who watched them dancing thought they were mad because they couldn't hear the music.”

I still weep when I read those words.  As much as I have roamed the immense ocean of mind I am still a man of my culture and penetrated by its blindness.  To dance as wolves beyond closed eyes was one thing, but to know it was shared in some way released a blossoming wonder that is still growing.  We can believe things as a defence against our own insecurities and littleness.  But to experience something that was real within, and have it confirmed as an external fact is an extraordinary thing to confront.

I had an interesting dream send to me - not on the Forum, I get most replies outside the forum. It was from a young  woman who started by saying, "I am a single, nursing student, 23 years old who’s living alone and currently not dating. I am really longing for a baby though."

Then at the end she says,"I am really longing to meet someone and build a family, but I’ve had trouble meeting guys and trusting them so it feels like I’ll end up alone and childless. Should I worry? Thanks!!"

Having at times also been desperate to meet someone, I never found dating sites brought me together with a real match. But something that has worked for me is talking to what I call Life. The first time I did it was when I was desperate for meaningful work. So I sat with my wife and asked for work that didn't take me away from my children; offered me work I could use my skills with; paid me a reasonable wage; and something I could get recognition for.

The very next day I had a telephone call offering me a job as a dream interpreter for a national newspaper. I was stunned.

Since then I have seen that it can only worked from a level of universal  mind. In other words you need to ask something that is not simply a selfish thing  only applicable  to you. Life, I am sure, has a form of consciousness, that expresses at different levels according to the complexity of the body it expresses through. Also it responds to questions we ask. It IS responsive.

I cannot  take space to explain it at length. But that young woman is obviously desperate to have a baby - and that isn't a selfish thing. Life itself is behind such a longing. So I suggested that she can you put her hand on her chest and feel her heart beating. That beat is Life, and it created her and has given her a longing for a partner and a baby. That action pumping her heart is universal; it is everywhere, in everyone.

I suggested that if she can get a feeling of that, that life is universal, and speak to Life and ask. Also to realise her own beauty – and I am not talking about film star stuff but the ordinary loveliness of a young woman with a treasure to offer, the treasure of the many life times that have given her a unique DNA and a unique love – and say to Life – “Here I am, you know me and you know how much I  want to be a mother and with a partner. Help me find the right person.”

That is a healing using her imagination, and a great way to ask something of Life. Also  if any of you can join in with her and ask for her, the more who ask the more powerful it gets.

Dream Interpretation / Can you suggest and help me?

That was a post put in the Boyfriend section of Dream Dictionary. She asked - Neena - I would like to grow past this because at this time I feel abandoned in many respects. Any suggestions?

So I did my best and wrote:


Neena – I am so delighted that you asked for suggestions. I realise from a long life that is all they can be. I believe that we are like a plant with roots searching for exactly what it needs. Sometimes it is only a few words that catch us and we retain forever. So here are some of my suggestions.

1.   Although we may have traumas buried in us, do not go in search of them. Each trauma or powerful life experience gives rise to habits, and habits are easy to find everywhere. No need to dig. So confront your habits and your traumas, if any, will rise before you.

2.   The feelings of jealousy you mentioned is actually a habit and is not a ‘natural’ reaction that many people take it for. So whenever it arises literally stop what you are doing and confront it. Think or say to your self, “This is an old habit of reaction started in my childhood. I want to grow out of this, and will replace jealousy/anger/frustration/failure etc with what I can feel when I am my best self. I know it will take practice, but it is just a habit like any other habit and can be learned like riding a bike.” Each time you confront it will be easier to get to the other side. See http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/habits/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYYXq1Ox4sk  

3.   Allow any emotions that arise as you grow. Emotions are not you, but they are a wonderful way of learning a lot of truths about your past and present – even future. If you can allow any spontaneous movement, shaking, shivering and watch it to see what it is saying. If you can do this it goes through stages. The most deeply buried hurts are physiological/psychosomatic. As they emerge they are first movement such as shaking or shivering. The next level is gestural. The movements will become gestures, cowering, hurt, avoidance etc. The third level if we allow it is the dream level – in waking not in sleep. The action then become a full acting out of something that was deeply unconscious, with sound, emotions, and actions. But remember this is still only a symbolic acting out – as dreams are. Then, if you do not get trapped in the symbols of dreams, you come to full understanding and insight as the whole thing rises into consciousness. See http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/the-lifestream/

4.   You are the sum total of your past. If you stop blaming your present experience on others it gives you a wonderful opportunity to create a new future. Today, this hour, this moment is the most miraculous thing. What you do today, this hour, this moment reaches far into the future in an unbelievable way. If you are honest you can trace back your present predicament to the past. So your present attitudes, actions, thoughts, love or lack of it is creating your future.

5.   Remember that you are far more than you currently believe. You are Life, expressing now, this moment. Look around at what Life can do. It can express as an amazing number of forms and in amazing environments. That infinite potential is at the Core of you.
