Homeless children
« on: October 20, 2019, 09:37:45 AM »
Hello Tony! Its been a long time since i last wrote to you about any of my dreams. You helped me alot throughout the years and i thank you for that! I came back today to share with you my last experience hoping i could come up with an answer to my day to day struggle.
Last night dream started with me and a person i saw as "best friend" in the village i spent most of my childhood. We were both around 8 years old and homeless. We went to the end of the main road to take the bus to the city we spent our early years,hoping we could find an answer to our problems by going back to the roots. We couldnt afford the ticket but instead the busdriver took us to a whole new,very advanced town we didnt even know it existed. There we perceived ourselves as being around 16 years old. We stared to wander around the town and find oursevles in a continuous chain of melancholy, like we've been there before and so many things were new and we contemplated on what changed the place so much. It felt like we were experiencing a past life at the same time. There we met 2 girls that chose to become homeless and wander the earth with us, in searchig for their thruth and love.
There was a very interesting scenario that developed before my eyes at some point. I was inside a dark room, facing a glass wall, the only source of light was behind that wall. I felt fear of the unknown, i felt like if i would open the door, i'd loose my "homeless" status and the people i traveled with. But i opened that glass door anyway and there stood a 4 years old child who aknowledged me as his father. I took him in my arms and squished him hard to my chest and my heart got filled with joy and warmth. After that i took him to my other 3 friends and they felt like he was part of the family already, but my best friend felt the need to disappear for some reason. So i left him go,knowing we'll meet again sometime soon. So there was me,the lil boy and the 2 girls walkin around the old village,where the "adventure" started. Thats when i felt the pressence of my best friend. I left the girls behind with the child and i went searching for him, trying to convince him to stay with us. I found him near a fence, surrounded by grass, depressed and not wanting to move a finger for himself. I kept screaming at him to snap out of it, because we'll find the "truth" together, as we always have been. But he wouldnt budge. A few moments later i felt a pack of stray dogs approaching, i felt the danger of the situation and i tried to take my bestfriend to a safe place but he wanted to die shredded by the pack. I was so furious i couldnt contain my anger. I tried to fight the dogs myself, defending him but they were too many. Giving up on the idea of saving him, i climbed a high fence to protect myself but when he saw me do that, he followed immediately. So we were both on the fence, crying of joy that we got back together. And we started thinking of a plan on how to win in this situation. Im not sure what we discussed but the conclusion was "we should start from 0". So we woke up again, where the dream started, naked and full of hope and energy. And it was the only 2 of us there, as a whole. And we were homeless again but we felt like we could conquer the world together. And the thruth we've been seeking was actually our friendship. Once we realized that we started looking for clothing,shelter and new ways to explore and discover ourselves once again.

Yoma – My impression is that you enter the dream with feelings and condition of being 8 years old. In waking we tend to exist in the age and place of our body, but in dreams we enter a completely different dimension of experience. In it we can be aware and experience the whole sequence of our life, from before conception through that period to birth and beyond to today. See https://dreamhawk.com/pregnancy-childbirth/my-needs-as-a-premature-baby/

To return to being an 8 year old it suggests that there was some trauma experience at that time and your dream was setting about helping you deal with it.

The move to ‘very advanced town’ is something dreams often do - a complete change of experienced environment. It showed you that the change did not change your feelings for you were in ‘a continuous chain of melancholy’. It lasted through till you were sixteen. Such a long period of melancholy left a powerful influence on you that you have sought to deal with. Your efforts led to you opening the glass door even though you were frightened. It is always facing fear and not running away from it that is the transforming force in people’s lives. It brought forth the little boy - a real wonder.

I believe you gave birth to the boy, not unusual in dreams, and as in dreams we create out of our own enormous potential, it is obviously your own creation. In the process of birth we are a whole being, but we are split to become either female or male, but in doing so we retain in a latent form the other sex. So you as a male hold within you the ability to give birth to a child – at least, in the dream world. Such a child is a new part of you that like any new ability or function is young and needs to be cared for as it grows and matures. I sometimes call these children –Spirit Children.

Many people might think a spirit child or spirit character is a complete farce and without any reality in the world.  However, that is far from being true.  For instance, take characters such as Superman or Spiderman.  These are creations in the mind of one or more people.  Your son was born in your dream, created out of the flow of life in you.

Coming back to Superman and Spiderman, those characters have an enormous life in the material world.  Millions of people are involved in their existence on screen or in books.  So you son will have very real influence in your world.

The dogs are almost certainly anxiety that you felt. You felt anxious because you were still locked in waking type comprehension. There is nothing that can hurt you in dreams for it is a virtual reality created by our mind and emotions. Of course you can frighten yourself into paralysis through fear and anxiety which you did in your dream, forgetting that you are the master of your inner world – which means you can either direct your dream to scare you sill – or be in charge of your fears.

Example: This was okay and I was thinking there was no problem when the creature leapt at my throat in a flash of movement and ripped my throat out. This sounds disturbing but I simply observed this and thought to myself that stroking and trying to be friendly was no way of dealing with this thing. It was as if I was in command of the imagery in that I simply formed another body. But then it dived into me to devour me from within. In fact apart from the gory imagery, there was nothing to be frightened of, as the creature was only attacking my dream image of myself. As I wasn’t identified with this, it couldn’t hurt me. That was the end of the dream.

Climbing a high fence suggest you were trying hard not to deal with the dogs so managed to lift your awareness higher, out of harms way. This new viewpoint allowed you to be able to leave the paralysis of your friend/self and find a different approach. The ‘0’ approach is a way to leave behind you all your mistakes and thoughts and try to start again. This takes a lot of awareness and effort, so be aware that this huge change is underway, but needs your support.

The friend; each person, object or even place in a dream should not be thought of as a symbol, such as a road sign that needs interpretation. A person or object is a living part of you, just as your hand is not a symbol it is a living part of you. As such a person is alive and responsive, with enormous depths. And a good friend is a wonderful aid in your life, an aid that can see you through the difficult times, and show you a new side of yourself.

To understand the friend you need to be that friend. I mean imagine yourself in their body and see how it feels, and describe yourself as them, even ask them questions. In doing so do not forget that this is a part of yourself you are making more real. Don’t get the silly idea this is someone else, even though they have the face and body of someone else. In this way you will discover an enormous amount about your own strength and ‘goodness’. But if you cannot do that, then at least imagine talking to them ask them questions and listening for their replies. Or if you cannot even do that, then remember that you have a good friend and treasure it. But remember this aspect of yourself was known to be paralysed by anxiety.
