Dragonfly – Don’t feel ashamed, because the dreams are not trying to shame you, but educate you about your inner workings.

You have taken the first step in the learning process by recalling your painful childhood memories. The second step is to also meet the feelings of anger that you – the child in you – was made to feel dirty.

I imagine yourself as the baby, talk to it a tell it that is has been hard for you to stop punishing yourself for what was done to you as a child – use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

It may take several attempts, so be patient. Then see if you can feel love for that small and defenceless you.

Rachel – Awful dreams are ones that have powerful messages that are life changing.

But I can only attempt to explain in words, to find life changes you need explore your dream using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

The big warehouse is depicting a part of your mind or consciousness where memories; past experience and aspects of yourself are put in storage, especially things that you do not want you or people to find out about.

Your hiding shows that you do not want anybody to realise that you have killed yourself and want to get rid of the evidence – i.e. for even you to realise.

Slicing your head in half shows that you have split yourself in two because of what you have done to yourself. Don’t get panicky about it; many, many people have killed an important part of themselves. I dreamt I was carrying a bag with my dismembered body, and I had the skinned and separated body in my other hand.

Example: I felt really guilty and connected with the dead body, as if I had been part of his murder, and was wondering frantically what I could do to hide or get rid of the body. Part of the problem was that pulling it out risked being seen with it.

In ‘being’ the body in the dream I said, “But it wasn’t until I got into the role of the dead body that any depth of feelings emerged. Almost as soon as I was in the role of the dead body I began to think about and feel things connected with the way I had killed my sexuality as a teenager.

So if you imagine yourself as the dead body, what part of yourself have you killed and now denied? It can be anything like your creativity, your love for someone, or something that was killed when young by criticism or judgements.

I had a very disturbing dream. I was in a big warehouse and waiting for employees to leave. At first I was talking to employees then I hid so they didn’t know I was still there when they locked up. When the building was empty I went over to my dead body in another room where I began dismembering it… starting with my head. But my head wasn’t just cut off; I sliced it in half with a chainsaw before dismembering the rest. Then I was trying to figure out ways to dispose of my body discretely so no one would find out about it. I was quite shaken when I woke up. I have never had such an awful, disturbing dream.

A woman's dream of a tsunammi.

I was in a building which felt like a college with huge glass windows. I was walking down a staircase which faced the window and I could see in the distance a Tsunami  coming towards us. I found my friend Collette to tell her, and we went to see if we could find a way out for everyone.

At the back of the building there was an open area that had an opening with big rocks like a gully, Collette and I agreed it was a way out. Collette went to get the others, but as she did my arm went over the boundary and my hand felt water and I knew it was too late I went to tell Collette. I felt fear and acceptance that there was nothing I could do. 


Working on this dream with Tony who invited me to be the Tsunami ,which I did so using the same therapeutic models mentioned Peer Dream Work.

As the Tsunami I felt expansion in myself wider higher and boundless, full of charged energy. Staying with what I was sensing I felt my attention was drawn to something pushing from behind me. and as I followed that sensation of what was pushing me it went down my body and continued to go down deep into the earth like a root.

As this continued the image came to mind of being in a umbilical cord, and I was it and in it I felt sick between my throat and belly. Staying with what was happening I felt a black tar like substance it felt like it lined part if the inside of the cord it was thick and dense I felt it was something I had been dealing with all my life, it felt like it was my mothers but as I became aware of that thought then I knew that it went along way back ancestral or beyond.

I felt emotional, staying with the image the dense heavy blackness something started to move in my belly, a bubble type ball of energy came out from the blackness into my hands and I felt like I was like a baby inside, holding the energy bringing it out up my body then taken back in through my mouth like eating its own tail a complete circle moving slowing down my body transforming the blackness as it went.

I became the Tsunami again and it I saw that it was like a LSD trip, levels of attachments to what you identify with, like being in a room but you are not a room having things in the room but they are not you, having emotional attachment but you are not those emotions that it can wash away what we/I am attached to, letting go of stories of my self. For I am not the story but have lived through it, but I am the energy of the Tsunami, the energy of everything. 

As I made my way home I felt very in the moment waves of people  all colours, cultures  shapes and sizes. On the bus  the conversations behaviours I could see myself in it all,  buildings, cars, traffic lights all connected.

Dragonfly - Thanks for telling a little about yourself. I too am constantly reading the forums dream and learn so much by being faced by them. It has been a major learniing experience.

I have five children and so they grew up with me around and helping them with their dreams whenever they were interested. four of the five have taken the idea of their inner world and have gone on their own individual ways of dealing with it.

What you say about symbols is so true - what an enormous heritage we have.

In case you haven't found them, you might be intrested in http://dreamhawk.com/body-and-mind/every-seven-years-you-change/ - http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/

Paisley – You can understand you dream if, like a child, you do not think about it,  but simply look at the pictures or the ‘cartoon’ of your dream.

But not having your enormous depths of associations with the dream images, I will be my own child self and guess at its meaning.

Middle aged people tired of tired with the long years of living, falling asleep at the job of living. It shows you are tired of paying attention to the cues life has given you, and you are ‘napping’ on the amazing job of life, and are being treated like a child in an infant school.

But you did awake to the threat of an enormous energy hitting you. But please realise that all the people, animals, places and events you experience in your 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 by being the different things and feeling them; for you dreams are created out if your own fears, wonder and genius. 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.

You are obviously scared of you meeting and dealing with the enormous inner energy you have, 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 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.

But the teacher felt there was no actual risk nut as you are the unconscious creator of your dream, your fear saw ‘red’ – a real sign of emotions connected with fear, screaming, horror or a sense of danger. Red also represents ones basic emotions, the instinct of fight, flight, hide play dead, placate or faint.

You paint interesting portraits of the different responses you have – the teacher you see as having no ‘backbone’ because he wasn’t as scared as you were, the students who simply followed authority figures, something a mass of humanity does, while you were looking for a safe place to be. That is fine in waking life, but it never pays in the dream world. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/masters-of-nightmares/

The soy sauce container is a wonderful way dreams come up with clues, for you wrote, “The stuff people got though was weird.”

Ask yourself the simple question, “What feelings or motivations move you to reach for the soy sauce dispenser? It is those inbuilt desires and motivations that are the source of the images you use in dreams.

For myself I reach or search for the soy sauce when I want to add flavour and improve the dish I am cooking, or the way I am cooking it. In looking up cooking I find - practical life skills to make your life experience palatable, such as the means of dealing with life. Or caring for yourself, in the sense of adjusting life situations.

Tsunamis are similar to tornados in dreams and can be understood as an expression of our personal adaptation to enormous changes. They can wash away most of the beliefs, social structures we have built or held onto as important. Yet if we are not afraid of change and the forces that we are actually involved in, then we can find enormous power and force within us.

Dream Interpretation / Reoccurring dream (sensitive subject matter)

For many years I had a very painful and shocking reoccurring dream. It would me feel ashamed and I wake in the night crying and distressed to where it is hard to go back to sleep. It pains me to say but it was of hitting, punching and pinching a baby. Due to the baby not reacting to the pain I was inflicting on it, I would then throw more abuse and anger onto the child with the dream ultimately ending in me waking in frustration and fear. One of the last dreams of this nature I had meditated on it, painful childhood memories emerged and have not had another of these again... until last night.

The dream was same except that the child was no longer a baby; it was a toddler. In the dream, the toddler doodied up it's back with no nappy and I was washing it angrily with clear water. I cleaned it away but got mad because the cleaning and friction from the cleaning was not making the child react. This wound me up more and more until I started pinching and hitting the child harder and harder. But it (he) didn't react - he just looked bewildered and glazed. I am crying even typing this due to the shame that any part of my psyche could think of such an act. That my mind could be filled with such frustration and anger to harm another person, let alone a child. I feel bad.

The dreams first emerged when I started to read the book "Counselling for Toads: A psychological adventure" (based on transactional analysis). This was about 4 years ago. I would have them sequentially over two or three nights and then they would stop for a while. The last ones were about 12 months ago and I thought I had found a breakthrough and peace with them because I realised that the baby being abused was an amalgam of me and aspects of my children. This toddler though, I do not recognise. Another similarity is that they always start on a Friday night. I think this is from a dream dictionary I read as a young person which stated that important subconscious dreams are always on a Friday (?!). Not sure if there is any truth in this!   

Will someone please give me some advice on what to do to bring this to the surface? Whatever it is, it needs to be addressed.

Best wishes,

Just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I've been using the website and its resources for some time but never thought to join the forum before. I don't know why since this is one of my favourite subjects! I love to hear about other people's dreams and actively encourage my family sharing them with me. I am fascinated by the subconcious and that even though there are differences to everyones lives, there are similar symbols deep in our psyche (cultural, evolutionary, age dependant, etc).

Hey Tony!! So, going on nearly a year since I last posted here.  Things are pretty well my way.  Working at Wal-Mart now.  My most recent dream was of a chameleon.  Just finished reading the dictionary entry.  In the dream I was initially startled by seeing a lizard in my home.  Then on closer inspection I had a sense of ease about it, a sense of peace.  The chameleon wasn't camouflaged.  He seemed at home in my home.

Anyways, it's funny you mentioned an awareness of important national or social event.  Since my post here I've delved into gematria and from there astrology. It started with a trip to the local cemetery.  I came across a peculiar grave marker in the shape of a black cube.  I began researching this and the man buried there a German immigrant from the 19th century who was in the fraternal order called the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.  From there I began looking into the geometry and numbers encoded in their symbolism and through that I discovered gematria.  There's much more nuance but trying to summarize.  So I came across the work of Zachary K Hubbard and was amazed.  Listened in to his radio show and bought a sunscription.  Though immediately following the very guy I looked up to berated me in the comment section of a youtube video.  Right now I'm still very much into gematria but I have a strong emphasis in astrology.  No one I've found has attempted to combine the two.  I love the work, the research and try to expand on it everyday.  I get a sense that my work was attacked by this Zachary K Hubbard and company before it ever even began to mature.  Despite that it's what I love to do and it all started with this sense of an impending national tragedy sort of what you mentioned in your reply.  Anyways, I've decided I need to start making blogposts.  Here's a link to it.  Thought it might interest you.  A friend I met through gematria quoted you on Facebook just the other day.  Got me to thinking of you. Here's the quote

"but the Christ, the part of us that is in contact with a cosmic mind or a great power of love is so advanced in actual life skills – in the real technology of the Cosmos, there is not even a need for a body."
