Dream Interpretation / Re: a shop assistant with no shoppers to assist

V – From dreams point of view, nobody has a higher position. But your pastexperience with her gave you ways of dealing with being in the centre of things. Being in the capital city in the landmark says it might have something to do with material opportunity; your central issues in life; or touching your core sense of self, around which other issues revolve.

When you think about a friend or a person you know, 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 change you and make you the person you are. So what have you taken in from knowing your friend that makes her and adviser?

The store is in dreams the whole huge range of things you hold within you; not just the memories of this lifetime held in your brain, but the huge experience from your long past, your ancestral heritage; literally your massive warehouse.

Example:  When I opened the door of the room I was overwhelmed by such a huge awareness of what had been left me as an inheritance by my ancestors that I sobbed for many minutes.  It wasn’t pain causing me to weep, but the intensity of what I experienced.  The strength, persistence, ability to love, as imperfect as it was, the sharpness of mind, the ability to exist within a modern community, were all gifts hammered out of raw human material by my forebears, enabling me to take the few further steps in life that I have.

The storage room is also linking with potential you have. The bag you need to explore your feelings to see what it refers to. But maybe the good feelinga you had about yourself stimulated by your Selfridges bag.

The rooftop is another huge symbol. For from there you can see and experience the sky and the source of Life – the sun. It represents your mind and the unexpected things that can come from it. It also implies moods by its brightness or dull quality. The huge unknown we hold within us.

The flowers are the wonderful flowering you are capable of that can support you in a soft and gentle way. Also the flowering of your own feminity.

Chris – No. 1 – All about the atmosphere you have around you – and you sing – expressing your soul purpose? – about help in getting rid of bad odours.

OK, I had a strange thought, maybe crazy; that you had so many lives as a male, this time you were born as a women to see what the ‘perfume’ you gave off then, and react to it.

But the dream says you have a well developed inner male.

No. 2 – Self esteem, as a women, is a huge part of your inner struggle, and continues to be. Self Esteem and myth have enormous connections. Remember that myth – the bible – fairy stories are all symbolical, and are all about the problems we face in personal  growth/maturity, and the hints gathered through the ages, of how to meet them.

The mythology of our psyche is important. It is the basic non-rational roots of our personality. Our psyche has its roots in such mythology, and the mythology gives some form to what lies beyond the rational mind and beyond form – perhaps beyond time and space. It is tempting to attempt reliving that mythology. We may even be trapped by it.

The trap is that patterns of behaviour pervade us as individuals, and pervade human society. These patterns are not necessarily leading toward our fulfillment. They exist as behavioural patterns that have existed for a long period of time. They are patterns that developed during our evolutionary shifts. They are not there as a guide to fulfillment. Consciousness, our personal consciousness, does not exist outside of this huge web of social and family patterns. For us to attain any semblance of real personal identity we need to become aware of these patterns in some degree. Such developing awareness is often painful. It is difficult because becoming aware is like a personal earthquake. It probes, it causes upheavals in perspective and values. It changes who we are and how we respond.

Human society is not a rational structure, despite the fact that we like to believe we are in control and rational. Looking at the level of international strife we can see that this is not the case. Irrational patterns of behaviour still play an enormous part in the way individuals and nations respond to each other. Social and personal behavioural patterns have developed out of ancient hierarchical ways of dealing with groups and leadership. Social structure is still linked very directly with the most ancient forms of interaction between primitive groups.

The psychiatrist Bruno Bettelhelm tells of a five-year-old boy whose mother was reading him “Jack, the Giant Killer.” “There aren’t any such things as giants, are there?” the boy suddenly asked. Before his mother could answer, he went on, “But there are such things as grown-ups, and they’re like giants.” When parents read such fairy tales, Bettelheim believes, they show that they understand the child’s fears of being powerless in a world of adults, and recognise the child’s need to grow toward independence.

Many mythical heroines have traditionally feminine adventures. In the fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast,” a young woman overcomes her repugnance for a “beastly” man-representing sexuality, according to Bruno Bettelheim-and transforms him through her love into a prince. The ending is doubly reassuring because she need not reject her parents to find fulfilment. In fact, she goes to the Beast’s castle to save her father, and her love for her father prepares her to recognise a suitable romantic partner.

If we understand the myths we identify with and those we create ourselves, we can gain a deep inisight into who we are.

No. 3 – You were checking the fundamental health of your womanhood. But in doing so you realised that an active part of your self esteem is your mental activity, which acts, via the hypothalamus, to link your glandular system, your irrational or intuitve drives to your personal awareness. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/irrational/

The nurse is another aspect of yourself, also linked with your developmentof self esteem. She asks you to ‘follow her’. So, the indication is to be a help in peoples sickness – illness can take amny forms.

You were led to see what has been spilled, and possily to clean it  up. The source of water was next to it.

Quite a dream.

Dream Interpretation / a shop assistant with no shoppers to assist
« Last post by V on July 15, 2017, 10:49:43 PM »
I’m working in Selfridges in London, at at shop of a brand that is one of the well-known symbols of my country. My best friend (who is in reality now to me more like a distant relative, the tile “best friend” is sort of historical ) works there, too. Apparently, she got me the position here. We are sales assistants, but maybe she is more experienced there and so she is guiding me there (don’t think she had higher position).
The brand store was very big all on one floor, and all walls and maybe also floors were white and all very bright (not sure there were windows). I don’t remember the actual clothes/goods, and none of them stroke me as being from that brand. I’m not sure we had a supervisor, and not sure I remember customers. In fact, the store was way bigger than the clothes and the people in there, sort of like a renovated warehouse, but all white. Possibly the light came from some headlights mounted on the ceiling, but it looked like daylight.
I went on the stairs behind a door towards the shop storage. In the dream, I think I may have found a very typical bag from that brand (I used to have one which I used to go to school every day in high school for a while, maybe in the last few years until I graduated from high school. It wasn’t real, however it looks as good as). Somehow my best friend was there, and she took me to a backdoor that opened onto an immensely huge rooftop terrace (we had to go down, possibly some stairs, to access it from our building, ie. it was a bit down below from where we originally were). Everything was white again, but surrounded on the edges by some green plants. The sun was shining, but in the way it shines in my home country (which is definitely not how it shines in London). I think there was a view over town, but it looked more like my home country than London.
From this huge square space on the terrace, some huge white sun loungers somehow sprung from the floor. We were lounging on one each, with our bellies down, whilst they sprung up. Their legs were somehow flexible in the moment they moved up, and made of small flowers that were changing colour like christmas lights. Hence, these were the support of the white beds that were coming up and on which we were lying, and which were also very soft and padded.
I think my friend was saying something about “don’t worry our boss doesn’t know we’re here and she cannot come find us”. But in fact I hadn’t seen any boss in the dream.
I then started thinking something about being able to stay there overnight (alone) and no one coming to get me even though the main store (Selfridges) would be closed.

I was a shop assistant with no shoppers to assist...? I'm sure this dream has some meaning related to the home country/London theme..

Hi dear Tony, thank you so much for your cooperation and participation! I went over all the comments you have made to my dreamwork since 2014 with your help and I pulled together two different possible quotes from you that would best describe the dreamwork I've done and how I became aware of our interdependency, which helped me understand my social, spiritual, and family issues. Both topics are presented in my upcoming book. Each one of the quotes are written with your very words in different times, I just put them together. I didn't add anything, except for the word book, which file I can share with you any time you request it; I've emailed you the introduction. With these quotes and your name in my book, I'll refer my readers to you, they will know your web and your books. My book will be published in English and later in Spanish. I will also include the link to your web and books in my webside, which is under construction right now, so my visitors will have the choice to consult with you in case they want farther development. Please let me know your opinion, I only need your final approval.

"In this book, Patricia not only shows how the interpretation of dreams influences the conscious mind, she also dives into the depths of her mind, where the core self is. Changing our dreams is the most difficult thing to do. By entering her dreams, she planted the seeds of her future self, and she shows you the basics of this complex process so you will be able to start establishing the same communication from beyond thought, and to accomplish healing from the depths of your mind as well. Patricia’s journey is one of discovery directed by her future self, who comes up when is in contact with great love and peace, and is aware of the More and the enormous potential presented in everybody else."

"As human beings, many of us are out of touch with what relates us to our environment and to the universe. Millions of us are sick enough to require antidepressants, continuous supplies of alcohol or mind numbing drugs in order to function. We live in family, social, political and economic situations that are part and parcel of our sickness. Patricia’s analysis of events helps you understand our connection to the universe as well as to clarify some life mysteries in order to understand mental, personal and family issues. Reading this book will give you a clear sense of connection with the whole; without any awareness of our interdependence, sickness takes place."

During the same night....

1)  I am on a stage with other women.  We are all wearing womens clothes, yet I feel and I know I am a man in my body.  I feel like, all these other women, I am expected to wear the clothes and play a role.  A woman next to me says what is that smell?  Your clothes smell like lavender.  She says "You have to tell them."  I know I am expected to sing...the woman on my right is singing...I think I am her understudy possibly.  I take out a mouth guard I am wearing and I cab feel that I have all my teeth and I start singing "Renuzit" which is the name of an air freshener brand.

2)  I am in a seminar like room full of women...a woman asks the group what self - esteem has to do with myth...I tell her that I was raised to play a role...be a caretaker...I had a large extended blood related family...and now I am by myself and all I want to be is a lucky star.  The point I was trying to make is that, for me, being a caretaker did nothing for my self-esteem.  It was actually detrimental to it. I bought into it, played the role and now refuse to play it anymore.

Next I am in my parents backyard sitting at the picnic table...I am repeating what I told the women to my father...on the table there is a Sunday New York Times and the magazine section's cover is back and mostly gold.  On the cover it says Self - Esteem and Myth.

3)  I am in a Gynecologists office.  I lay on the table and have my knees bent but closed together.  The female nurse or doctor puts an ultrasound device on my stomach.  Instead of two ovaries I see my hypothalamus.  It is a beautiful light to medium blue to dark blue color.  I know the hypothalamus is considered by some to be the third eye. I ask about my ovaries and the nurse says let me test them...she goes to some small device and an oval indicator lights up yellow and then turns the same blue color.  And the second one I ask?  Same thing.  I get up from the table and a woman who looks like a younger version of myself...thin, long blond hair, a gold nurses outfit...turns and says "follow me."  She gestures with her hand and finger to come closer and follow her.

She points me to some spilled liquid on a counter next to a faucet.  It looks like water and coffee.

V - In dreams we may switch to the dimension in which we are in contact with the so called dead. It sounds as if yours was an example of that. The dead looked younger because when they leave the body they usually appear as they were in their prime. This is because in essence, when in the realm of death/dreams, we can be anything we believe we are – male, female, or a being of light. See http://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/journeying-beyond-dreams-and-death/#WHappens

But the questions you ask have so many associations attached to the dream images, personal feelings and associations that I do not know, so have no way of dealing with. So I suggest again trying http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/association-of-ideas-with-dreams/#Working and http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

Obviously that takes work on your part. Or you could use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/your-guru-the-dream-step-one/

 It matters whether you are a watcher of the sport of life, or a player. A player gets involved, struggles against difficulties, and works toward a goal. Extracting the magic from a dream needs just those qualities. You don’t need to be extraordinary to do that – just an ordinary person with some persistence and courage. If you have that and travel into your dreams, the rewards are like a key opening the door to a magical world.

I am such an ordinary person. I found the key. I opened the door. And I travelled in that magical world! I might be able to help you do the same.

Why would I want to offer you this without asking you for money? After all, it took me years of effort to discover the key, and bloody heartbreak sometimes to enter that magic world.

Well, part of my travels took me under the surface of the world. I went into that strange place of the spirit where all things connect. I saw that my life is interwoven with yours in ways that are beyond understanding. I know that if even one or two of you make that journey and find transformation, my life will be the richer, and the world will have more light and love. (Quoted from Your Guru the Dream).

I have had a few dreams about him too.  In one dream his face was on a breadstick or french baguette that was inserted into my vagina.  It was going up and down and he was laughing.

I am pretty sure this is about our, as women, anxiety about him being in the position of President...maybe fear of us losing power or going backwards.  I do think a lot of the gains we have made are internal and those can never be taken away by anyone.  I also believe in the pendulum effect...politics swings left and then right...and then left and right.  It does take a long time for society's values to change.

Ever since I took the time to relax and do nothing, I started dreaming more often.
I had a dream two weeks ago which I feel is connected to the baptism scene. It was strange because I do not remember exact details, it was more of a hazy recollection. I woke up with a sensation, rather than a memory, than in the dream my father must have had sex with me, and I was submissive rather than a full participant (it was consensual in the dream, though, not a violence). This must have happened in the kitchen of the flat he lived in (and where he killed himself, although not in the kitchen), and I believe there was another person, probably a young man about my age, right in front of me facing me and my dad (I was not facing my dad), and who just watched (this young person must have been naked).
Before my parents separated, we all lived in that flat (although my dad was away for work most of the time), and kitchen is of course where most things happened, such as fights with my mom, for instance.
Disturbing as it is, I know it has something to do with me living fully and that it represents my inner father. At the time of the dream, I believed it must be me, or my father, or my inner father giving me confidence and strength to face life to the fullest. Maybe it is my father trying to pass onto me that living force that he decided to walk away from.
Or passing the testimony on to someone (the role of the young gentleman just watching?)?
I also have not had full intercourse in a long time, and in general feel that my life has been aseptic and I've been sleepwalking through the past 5-6 years, developing psychosomatic illnesses along the way (incidentally, the same time during which my father apparently started having increasingly debt issues. Incidentally, over the past year I have made leaps forward in my awakening, getting more and more light through darkness....and my dad must have fallen deeper into despair, and deeper into darkness, with less and less light). The same years I moved abroad for good, and went home less and less, and became enmeshed with my mom even more. I am now becoming hungry for life like I have never been and I do feel a lot going on within me.

And now I dream of my father walking me to this new life after the baptism. I believe the two dreams are facets of the same thing.

Dear Tony,

Thank you so much for your patience in reading my dream and for taking the time to answer. This is helping me so much and your answer resonates a lot with the path I am currently on. I am so grateful for your dedication to helping people access their dreams.

A few points remain: why my parents looked young as in the year I was actually baptised? Does this mean they are staying behind in my “old” life? That I’m taking with me only the good of them (possibly, their good intentions when I was just born, that pure love parents may have when they kids are just babies)? Why did my father look young but wear clothes that were in his recent style over the past few years? Why did my mother look stuck in 1990 clothes-wise, too? Why didn’t she hug me or accompany me towards the bath? Why was the dead parent (also, the one I’m more connected to on a spiritual level, but for whom I feel guilt in not having built a more consistent relationship whilst he was alive) the one accompanying me to the bath? Am I leaving behind the part of me that I identify with my dad, or am I bringing them with me? Do their actions and outlook in the dream represent what I want to take of them with me, since supposedly I should find the same scene once I get out of the baptismal bath?

Also, is it important for the dream that the baptism didn’t actually take place (or that I do not remember it)? Does it mean it is yet to happen?

And what is the meaning of the guy G. appearing in that scene afterwards? Is there a link between the baptism and that scene? And the fact that everything happened in my hometown, ie. where my roots are (even though I moved on over the years and did not connect too much with my homeregion/hometown)? (note also that G. is from the same country as I am, too, and that could be a big factor on why I was attracted to him, I think I missed home all these years (so much so that almost all my interactions with the other sex involved guys from my country) but did not realise it in full until my father’s death).


Thank you,

V.

V – You dreamt that you were to be baptised again, in a bath, not just water sprinkled on you. This literally means a rebirth, a new beginning.

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”
The Bible is about huge truths that are describing the inner mysteries of Life. Outside many temples of various religions there is a large container with water to symbolise the cleansing of your life. You dream suggests that you are actually on the path which leads to peace. But the path is one which the first steps are usually face one with the many traumas, mistakes and self created torments. But if you walk the path meeting such difficulties is not bad. For Life itself tells us -  “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Math 11.29).
You may think I am pushing Christianity. No, I am repeating age old truths about life; ones learnt through millennia. It must remembered that Christianity was not unique and was a new representation of a very old theme.
Mithra was born in a cave, on the 25th December. He was born of a Virgin. He travelled far and wide as a teacher and illuminator of men. His great festivals were the winter solstice and the Spring equinox (Christmas and Easter). He had twelve companions or disciples (the twelve months). He was buried in a tomb, from which however he rose again; and his resurrection was celebrated yearly with great rejoicings. He was called Savior and Mediator, and sometimes figured as a Lamb; and sacramental feasts in remembrance of him were held by his followers.
Osiris was born on the 361st day of the year, say the 27th December. He too, like Mithra and Dionysus, was a great traveller. As King of Egypt he taught men civil arts, and “tamed them by music and gentleness, not by force of arms”; he was the discoverer of corn and wine. But he was betrayed by Typhon, the power of darkness, and slain and dismembered. “This happened,”says Plutarch, “on the 17th of the month Athyr, when the sun enters into the Scorpion” (the sign of the Zodiac which indicates the oncoming of Winter). His body was placed in a box, but afterwards, on the 19th, came again to life, and, as in the cults of Mithra, Dionysus, Adonis and others, so in the cult of Osiris, an image placed in a coffin was brought out before the worshippers and saluted with glad cries of “Osiris is risen.” “His sufferings, his death and his resurrection were enacted year by year in a great mystery-play at Abydos.” Quoted from Pagan and Christian Creeds by Edward Carpenter
The ancient cathedral represents the ancient lessons of life you carry within you. It took place not on the ground floor but raised up, representing a higher level of achievement. You wore white because you became a virgin in your rebirth/baptism. See http://dreamhawk.com/news/how-i-became-a-virgin/

Your father’s love, you must realised that most of us are trapped in old ways of belief and thought, but we must slowly take time to adjust to the NEW.

Therefore, when examining the model of our mind, we need to leave space on one of the walls for a door. It needs to be a door that opens onto a different sort of universe than the one we may previously have felt to be solid reality. It is a universe that alters its appearance – no, its very nature – according to the way we observe it. Each question we ask of the universe, each attitude with which we approach it, each viewpoint we take, reveals to us a different universe. The universe is therefore not separated from us. We are intrinsically a part of it, and are participating in it. In some way the universe is constantly being created by ourselves as participants. It seems as likely too, that we the participants are constantly being created by the universe. And the past is not set in concrete. In some mysterious way it is linked with what we do in the present.

The implications of the quantum theorem are enormous. Something can be in two places at once. Apparently distant objects, or people, are intricately linked in an immediate way. There is no separate existence as we previously thought. Our old view of the world is not one supported by the facts of physics. Time and space are transcended. David Bohm, an eminent physicist, goes as far as to say that all things in our observable universe are inextricable linked. Nothing has separate existence.

At this level we are totally in connection all the time. In dreams we connected with anyone we love, but 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. We seldom get a very clear view. But you father’s feeling of love shone through clear, but the images have to be see through ones associations.

But on the path is might help using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/association-of-ideas-with-dreams/#Working - http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/
