Hi - I must take time to upgrade the dream dictionary, so must halt from answering your posts – I started the revising in 2006, and haven’t neared the end yet. I believe someone else may start.
So, for a while I urge you to read http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/i-am-no-longer-interpreting-dreams/
Also, here are so ways you can find your dreams meaning - http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Summing
Hundreds of questions about your dreams have already been answered if you scroll down to the very bottom of the page were people’s questions/comments were replied to. Also, see http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/
Omega – It is unusual to appear so often and in different settings. But the things we are aware of are enormous. After all, in a day you have taken in millions of bits of information, and in our daily waking consciousness we are almost totally unaware of the immensity of information we each have within us.
I once witnessed a man having a therapy session. I too was busy experiencing stuff within me, but when I looked over at him I saw that he was like a man covered in a stiff outer covering like a chrysalis. He was lying on the floor in front of the therapist, and I crawled over to get a closer look. Remember I was deep in myself at the time, and accessing an ability we all have that is very prevalent in dreams – the ability to synthesis. In other words, we can have an overview of our whole life experience, and in doing so learn enormous amounts about ourselves. This is presented in dream images, which are usually an image that has enormous amounts of information locked in it – as I have said, dream images are like icons on a computer screen - You have to ‘click’ on your dream images to make them come alive. Thinking about them doesn’t work. You need to open yourself to the magic of them. To make them into the wonderful gateways they are you may have to learn certain skills. Skills listed above.
Anyway, I saw that the man who was very learned, had plastered on him the enormous amount of knowledge, none of which had he taken into himself to really experience and digest. For digestion is the breaking down and making it into a living part of oneself – not simply an intellectual learning.
I saw that deep within him was the living flame of Life, and everything needed to be passed through the flame to turn what was essentially dead into living experience. Remember Rider Haggard's Aisha who stood in the flame of Life? This is described in http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/
So try exploring your associations with the man, for you have treasures in you. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/association-of-ideas-with-dreams/#Working
