Leech Leeches

Something or somebody that is surreptitiously draining your energy. The leech might also, because of its past use in medicine, have the association with a healing process, In this case it might be showing the draining away of ‘bad blood’ bad feelings. See: Blood.

 Our energy can be leeched away by emotional conflicts, or mishandling our own major energy expressions – unloving sex, emotions tied up with love, conflict over decisions, extreme worry about our children, consuming alcohol, chasing after fantasies, spiritual quests that lead nowhere.

 Example: I realized I had been unkind to my dog by trapping it with the creatures, putting myself first, and felt guilty; I went back to my dog, which was on the verge of death from all the bites it had incurred. Somehow, the “wasps” had transformed into leech-like animals that were sucking out his blood; as I brushed them off, his hair fell off, revealing bloody naked skin underneath. Also, weirdly enough, he had leeches on his penis, which was engorged and sore and resembled my own penis.

Example: The winds kick up. An object that looks like a string green bean lands on my arm with a slap. It sticks on my right arm and begins the damaging process. It is like a leech. Henry’s wife grabs at it and pulls it off. It leaves a red open wound. She is relieved it was taken off quickly enough so that only minimal damage was done. She had saved my life.

Example: Let us not condone this way of life that sees us as merely statistics and units to be moved by advertising and other subtle pressures. Let us not buy into it by purchasing these lumps of farmed meat; chicken breasts from animals that have no natural life and whose normal cycles have been manipulated for sales and production. The profit motive unfortunately taints even those areas that attempt to be organic and to care for the land. Nature is only after protecting itself, it is not trying to make a profit. The profit motive is so built into many people that they cannot understand something that doesn’t have the same drive.

 If you think about it, if you think about a woman’s body, every little bit of it is claimed by a commercial interest. From the moment she is born the commercial interests say, “She he is ours!” It is strange that we can’t see how we have locked nature in, trying to own it and gain a profit from it in every way we possibly can. The huge corporations and political organisations carefully design your food, your education, your hormones to move you toward exactly what they want you to be.

How do we detoxify ourselves from something that is so permeating our lives? How do we detoxify ourselves from our own society? Feeling these feelings, exploring these issues, meeting these very powerful influences arising from deep within me, the question I asked myself is, am I crazy?! Am I crazy, or am I just waking up?  I am pro life. I don’t want parasites hanging on my back. I want to give my blood to my children, not to the parasites. I know I have a thing about, or feelings against, cigarettes and alcohol. I see them as very obvious ways that some of the big guys behind the corporations lead people toward a dependency that leeches away in them their will.

With eyes open you will see how so many people are trying to lead you by your fears, by your dreams, by your sexual drive. Ask yourself, where are they leading me? Basically they are leading you toward spending your money and putting it into their account. It is possible to say no. It is possible to make your own sexual decisions. It is possible to learn how to deal with your fear response, your fight or flight instincts. Who are you? Why let somebody else steal it? You would be angry and active if somebody stole your credit card or your cheque-book. How can you let them steal your real inner identity?

Useful Questions and Hints:

Do you have leeches on you or just see them in the dream?

Is there an indication of what the leeches are taking from you?

Are you fighting back?

Last night I had a dream I was in a beautiful river stream that over looks a waterfall and mountains, the air was quality was perfect thier was also dolphins, Once I got up from the water I noticed that there were a few leetchs I trailed pulling them off but it was so hard, I then noticed that I had way more than expected, I was pulling so hard and grabbing a hand full at a time and throwing them, my mom was there trying to help but they kept getting bigger and to pull away, I remember being so aggressive with them and not giving up and just kept a handful and pulling them and throwing them, towards the end of the dream one was inside my body and one in my brain, I remember saying to myself that I needed a cat scan! What does this mean????

    Jacqueline – In the dimension of dreams we are in a wider awareness, in this wider awareness you leave the limited view of the three dimensional world most of us are trapped in, and enter a world beyond time and space.

    We can see more of who we are and what life faces us with. And because you entered “a beautiful river stream that over looks a waterfall and mountains, the air quality was perfect”, which in dreams represents that you shifted you awareness from your everyday body awareness and saw beyond the obvious.

    We are actually a shining being, but our light/energy/creativity/good feelings gets blocked, so just trickle of your potential can come through. You are really bogged down with these – believe me this is not unusual. For we all infected with so many traumas or negative life experiences – See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/trauma/

    An example of this:

    Example: When I spoke as the new born baby of my dream I really felt as if this was me, newly born. I had had a difficult birth and my reaction was that I wanted nothing to do with life. I wanted to stay curled up like an egg, not getting involved in the exterior world.

    The adult me observing this could see how this aspect of my inner life had led me to be withdrawn from social activity all my life, so I explained this to the baby me, saying – I need you to be ready to meet the world. You are a part of me and if you continue to withdraw I lack the enthusiasm to get involved with other people. Back as the baby I felt totally vulnerable and didn’t want to take any risks – “No I don’t want to come out of the egg.”

    As the adult again I said – Look, if you remain curled up this is more of a gamble than actually getting out and taking risks in life. Just lying there anything can get you. I had recently seen a film about baby turtles hatching and rushing to the sea. Some of them got eaten by seagulls, but the faster they were the less likely to be caught. So I explained this to the baby me. As the baby this really got to me. I felt a change in me and a readiness to begin the journey of meeting life outside the womb. This change really made a difference to my everyday activities. A lifelong habit of being introverted gradually dropped away. T

    Obviously your dream is showing you how serious that is. There a ways of dealing with it, but if they were so easy to get rid of, everyone would be clean. But many people as their awareness reaches beyond what they feel is their normal self feel scared. Such resistances cause us to create awful dreams and fears as a means of avoiding our own inner world and its wonders. We feel that we will be swallowed up and we will die. It is important to say that when we meet the experience of powerlessness through becoming aware of the hugeness of your Life, which we are usually unaware if, it feels like something alien or attacking and it is a shock.

    When we begin to meet the Hugeness that we are, we often react to it in our dreams or in waking with fear or panic. So we dream of being attacked by aliens or frightening creatures; or being swallowed by a whale or something huge, a tsunami, or even possessed by evil entities; or in your case a mass of leeches.

    Demetriss – The lake represent your inner world – the world you enter when you close your eyes and live only in your thoughts, emotions, dreams and imagination.

    In the dream you were only at the surface of your inner world which has tremendous depth. In looking inside yourself you realised that in some way you were not as energetic as usual. If it was you right foot and leg the leeches were on, and if you are right handed, it suggests that you motivation to create, to extend yourself and express outwardly, has been injured in some way in the past, but the good feelings you have about your wife and friend are getting rid if your energy loss. In imagination see the leeches being taken off by your wife and yourself. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/secrets-power-dreaming/
