University

Learning lessons about life; the ambition to improve your life skills or status. Or it can link with your own experiences of university life. In which case it is worth defining what your overall impression of university was – loneliness, pleasure, intense friendships? See: School.

Your individual potential and learning ability, but often the university is associated with ‘higher’ learning or personal advancement leading to opportunity. It might also link with something important you are learning or aspiring to; something important you have to offer but are not yet fully aware of. Or it can relate to your own experiences of university life. In which case it is worth defining what your overall impression of university was – loneliness, pleasure, a move toward independence, intense friendships?

Example: An actual example of this is of a woman who wrote telling of a recurring dream in which she discovered a door in her house she had never seen before. Beyond it was a whole apartment she has never known or used. It was obviously an area of her life she had never lived in, but she had no idea what it was. So, the technique of exploring the dream while awake was explained, and she imagined walking into the new apartment and observing what she felt and what memories arose. A soon as she entered the apartment she began to remember and feel again things that had happened in her childhood. Her mother and father had separated when she was very young, and her mother had constantly presented her father as weak and of no value. But the feelings that arose were of the love of beauty and art that her father had shared and helped unfold in her. But she had kept that part of her closed because of what her mother had said. Now it was open to her again and she could allow it to unfold further in her life.

An important point here is that the woman did this working alone on her dream, not with professional help or supervision. See Dreams – Practical Techniques – Potential
