Being disabled in your dream, or meeting, or dealing with a disabled person or child, usually refers in some way to an aspect of yourself that has not developed its full potential. For instance your activities or endeavours may have been held back by feelings of inferiority or lack of confidence, or even raising your children, which is a huge responsibility. Those feelings are usually due to something that has hurt your feelings or self-esteem in some way, or is about life circumstances so is shown as a disability. See: cripple.

It can be caused by trauma in your early years, such as premature birth; things done that smashed your young self.

Example: I’m carrying two heavy bags home from school. A teacher doesn’t help me. I am at home, now a mother with children moaning for their tea. I can’t go to bed unless I complete my housework. I’m on a sinking ship like Titanic, jump overboard, divers helping others avoid me. I cry out for help, but they ignore me. I’m a disabled single parent with 2 teenage children.

I am hearing your cry for help Elizabeth. The sinking ship tells me you are near to emotional collapse. However, at a distance I am wondering if – a) From your schooldays you felt nobody supported you so you get into a victim role. b) You consistently take on too much and push yourself too hard. c) You have asked for help but have found no response.  Do any of these apply?

The two bags are your children, who you have no help to carry. The dreams describe the man in your life as apparently strong, but in fact doing nothing to help. What can you do though? Certainly stop pushing yourself so hard – or learn to relax the feeling of constant pressure. Make a long term plan to gain help from your children, to share the load. As a mother you are an important person and no mother should live in a society that make a mother feel such stress. So be like a tigress and stand up for you rights.

There is also a feeling of isolation in your dream, despite you being among people. It is important for you to recognise this and wonder how it has come about.

Human beings has evolved through huge periods of time to have self awareness, a truly amazing thing, but for many it is a state of constant pain and suffering leading many to commit suicide. But Dr. Maurice Bucke, who himself lived in constant physical pain tells of how him and many others were able to evolve to a new state in which their suicidal pains no longer were active in them. He called it Cosmic Consciousness, but it has been known for ages under different names such as Enlightenment and Liberation. Those who evolved to this level of awareness often say, “That we could all be experiencing this, if only we could stop being typical suffering humans. Regardless of what hell one might fall into an enlightened one is an ordinary person who acts like a true adult.” All the major faiths recognise this and so have left records of how to reach this evolution of self.

I had a dream that I was at school and my math teacher let me kiss her and was going to make sure I had a B in her class so I could play a certain position. Then I was walk-in outside and a boy and his sister was walk-in out he couldn’t find his keys they where a lil mentally challenged so I said I’d watch her while he looks for the keys when I walked out side she was going to sit on the steps but got scared and sat in the back seat of my car instead so a few of my friends pulled up and one tried talkin to her she got scared and started screaming I made him get away from the door and she calmed down.
Can you please explain to me, whay this means?

    John – It would have helped to know how old you are now – as your dream says you were at school. This suggests you had something important to learn about relating to a woman – who was also a teacher, saying you had something to learn from her.

    Relationship are an important subjects in dreams, but in this dream you were only on the first step of relating – a kiss.

    The next relationship is with a ‘challenge’, a young female. It is also important to realise that every image, every scary or terrifying thing, is taken place inside you, in your mind, as you sleep. This means that every awful animal, every scary thing, or person, is created out of your own fears and must not be seen as outside you as happens in waking awareness.

    So in dealing with that part of you, you hit some difficulties, you/she was scared. But you find that if you are not in company with friends you can handle it. The care is often a private area where you can be alone – but you didn’t have the keys, a key gives you entrance to things you would not otherwise have access to. Sometimes it represents sexual activity. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/sex-and-dreams/

CN you help Please?

What could it mean if I dream that my disabled step daughter gets up and walks but my husband doesn’t believe me?

    Bronwyn – It suggests that you have a hidden conflict in you about your daughter.

    Many people do not realise that they have an inner husband equally as powerful as an external husband. You have taken in millions of bit of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences, along with all the feelings or problems met by loving and living with your husband, and they are what makes you the person you are. This is true even if your husband was never there for you – you still have all the memories of him not being there for you filed under ‘husband’. The memories and experience we gather unconsciously change us and are not lost. It is part of you and is symbolised in dreams as a person or event. Such an inner husband can appear in dreams because you are deeply influenced by what you hold within you.
