Dreamhawk site feedback and suggestions / Re: Poetry
« on: October 28, 2014, 02:51:19 PM »
I like to speak in poems with people.  I haven't done that in a while, but it was fun to interact with poems rather than just write it by myself.   When you speak with others through poetry it's like entering their dreamscape.

I just realized that you wrote so many books already.  It would be a blast speaking to you in poems.  I also noticed that there were 24 guests online yet there were no new posts.  Maybe people are hesitant to be so open.  We can reveal as much or as little as we want through poetry, so that's why I think it would be fun here.

Dream Interpretation / Re: navel
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:53:51 AM »
The navel is where the umbilical chord was attached.  It felt natural at the time?  Maybe you don't need to confront this yet, but keep it in mind for later.  Black goo signifies some dark stuff going on there.  Do you think it could be about your relationship with your mother?  "You don't need to know about this yet".  It could be some major trauma that you aren't aware of yet.  Sometimes digging up buried trauma does more harm than good.

Can we have a poetry forum?  Some of the things are so indescribable that attempting to describe it in regular language leaves us more confused and misunderstood.

Self esteem needs to be cultivated from within.  Ask her to list 10 values and focus on that.  Values are personal and not contingent upon others.  It sounds like she needs to foster her own sense of security so that she can go out into the world and not be affected by what others think about her.  Also, I think anxiety can be a sensitive trait that alarms us when we are in dangerous situations.  Where does she feel the most anxiety?  When does she feel most at ease?  Perhaps she is sensitive and is picking up nonverbal cues of hidden hostility?

They did a study with dogs and how they read body language.  It doesn't matter what a person says, if the non-verbal cues were incongruent, it created anxiety in the dog.  They call this the double bind.  It's a form of control really.  People sometimes play games where they want to make others feel inferior so that they can have a higher rank.  most of this is done subconsciously.

General Discussion / Re: How to Overcome From Extreme Stress & Depression
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:35:09 AM »
Hi Philsmiths,  I also battled depression for the greater part of my life.  I think depression and anxiety were mainly due to feelings of alienation.  I was the black sheep of the family because I had a tendency to say what we weren't supposed to notice.  Every family and community needs a scapegoat to project all their negativity onto.   

The less aware we are of our own negative traits, the more we hurt others.  There's a lot of hurt in the world.  Humans thrive when we cooperate and are happy. 

Some practical advice that helped me is to accept the fact that no one is going to save me and to take care of myself, eat well, and be kind to myself.

Questions about dreams / Re: Does Sleep Disorders Can Cause Bad Dreams?
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:02:29 AM »
Dreams can be persistent if you need to be aware of something.  Our subconscious takes in much more information than our conscious mind does.  Too much awareness can cause depression though so our mind protects itself.

You want to figure out why you are having these dreams?  What is the overall feeling you get upon waking?

I find that speaking randomly about dreams helps to unveil the message.  As fast as you can, write down 10 words that remind you of the dreams you've been having lately.  Don't analyse it, just write the first images that come to mind.

I am the SWAT team who killed Serena Williams?  hmm...

I disagree with Freud's interpretation that everyone is us in our dream.   I know some people believe that everyone is us in real life too, but to me that seems wrong.  I am you and you are me. 

If I am a lion in the dream, couldn't that represent an outside force that represents the lion?  Or do we only experience what we project and if so isn't that unhealthy?  I have a rabbit here and I think she is her own being and not simply an extension of myself.

Perhaps this all is me interpretation would better apply to someone who doesn't view everyone as separate entities that have their own motivations, and not simply here to serve us as extensions of ourselves.

I mean no disrespect, I simply adore you and your work, but I do disagree with you and Freud on that being always the way to interpret everyone's dreams.

Thanks Tony Crisp,

You are correct about how my associations with Serena Williams tied into the dream.  I didn't mention that another person who I knew at the time was shapeshifting into Serena Williams.  She was also a strong black woman.  I remember her telling me back then that I needed to look out for myself more and not be so na├»ve when it comes to men. 

I didn't kill Serena Williams, the SWAT team did and they were after me next. 

The other day after I wrote about the dream here I stumbled upon a video where the guy was describing the lotus river as a place where all the dirty repressed emotions are transcended out of and the Lotus is the symbol of how something beautiful grows out of decay.  There were no lotuses in the water but there were lilly pads and so many of them that it was hard to swim through the long stems where the lilly grows. 

I have to say that this is a real eye opener.  I learned that I should get stronger and more self reliant and to not be afraid of those who might not want what's best for me.  By sucking up to the SWAT team, it is a way to avoid the fears that make us go along with whatever we're supposed to. And also the fact that they would murder Serena Williams who is as I just learned the number one female tennis player, and a good person on top of that, seeing how there is no reason to hurt her I can now see that there is nothing wrong with me that makes the "SWAT team" want to kill me. 

I remember too the black woman that shape shifted into her, one memory that stuck out in my mind was how she was able to handle herself with confidence, which I didn't have because of whatever self-esteem issues.

Thanks again!

I had a dream that men in black swat team uniforms were shooting at me.  I jumped into a river with lots of Lilly pads and swam as they shot into the water.  The men had killed Serena Williams. the tennis player.   I haven't watched tennis since she and her sister first started so I've no idea why she'd appear in my dream last night.

Also in another part after I got away I was at a gas station and my car tipped over.  I struggled to get out of the car and some men took me into a back room to question me.  I felt like they were all very primitive and ignorant people who I couldn't trust but I wasn't afraid either.  I was cautious though and tried to not upset them but I wasn't sure about what they were after so it felt like being in a foreign culture.

Thank you Tony Crisp. I'm honored to have my dream analyzed by you. 

When I was 16 I found your book and have bought several copies since then (decades ago).  It's my favorite dream dictionary.  You are like a modern day Carl Jung to me. 

How lucky we are to be able to interact with on a forum like this.  I can't believe there are only a few members.

Dream Interpretation / Vampire in the mirror
« on: June 17, 2014, 10:36:03 PM »
Lately I've been feeling confused and heartbroken.  For the past two years I've been involved in an online relationship.  I was never sure if he was sincere, but he said he was, and as time went on he became less and less interested. 

So, I had this dream of him.  We were in a bathroom and I was hugging him, then caught his reflection in the mirror.  He was a demonic looking vampire.  I wasn't shocked or afraid.  In my dreams I'm not emotionally reactive like I am in real life.  I didn't want to let him know that I knew this about him so I pretended like I didn't see it in hopes that I could later help him.  What I felt during the dream was deep compassion and love. 

Why would I be so calm in my dreams, yet in real life I get panic attacks and surges of doubt and confusion?  I think it's because in my dream i have access to all knowledge and it's the lack of not knowing for sure that stresses me out the most. If I only knew I could take a steady approach, but when you don't even know the full truth your mind plays all these tricks on you.
