Dream Interpretation / Re: Little man
« on: January 20, 2023, 11:38:15 AM »
Dear Mernel - I wonder is there a man or something you are trying to do that is a bit tricky? For the dream seems very important.

It seems something you experienced caught your attention and this links with your intuitions trying to warn you about either a man or at least an urge that is trying to enter your life that you need to be aware of.

This is tricky because urges can masquerade as humans in dreams because they are a part of you, so watch for a man who is not threatening or an urge that is trying to enter your awareness. Tony

Romanov - Excuse my delay but I am in the middle of a move to a distant other house.

Also I am 85 and my age seems to have taken away my intuition which was my main source of information about dream queries.

But I will do what I can with my past experience, because this sounds like you have problems with peeing.

But the blue colour of the water suggests your intuition is warning you of a problem so I would suggest talking to your doctor. Dreams often are aware of symptoms that you are not aware of yourself. -Tony

Aristocrat - Please see what was said in your dream about great spirit. The sea is a symbol of your core self awareness entering your eveyday awareness and going - coming and going.

from the 'Great Spirit' it tries to answer you. Remember i said that dreams are created by our Core Self which did you know that you are capable of receiving enough information to make you a genius? For the human brain can process up to 11 million bits of information per second. This is the natural processing capacity of the brain, including the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious mind. However, the conscious mind has an extremely limited capacity, and it can only handle anything from 40 to 120 bits of information in a second.

This highlights how marvellous the brain is, and how extraordinary capabilities it has beyond our imagination and everyday awareness and self. Estimates of our conscious mind, our personal awareness, shows that it is only able to process 50 bits of information per second. So, what happens to the other millions of bits of information gathered? But there is an even greater way we are limited, because almost all our thinking and even our understanding of what we perceive is via concepts. Strange that most humans cannot even understand that everything they see as a human being is a concept. Concepts can be based on real phenomena and are a generalised idea of something of meaning. So, when we see or experience something we build or remember a concept or idea. A person or dog we see or meet we then build a concept or internal series of ideas about it. We say look that is a dog, but we have no real idea of what a dog is, only ideas and memories of seeing a dog.

As humans we live in this self-made mental world of conceptual life. For concepts are Mental Representations, where concepts are entities that exist only in the mind (as mental objects). It all started with our learning speech for words are concepts. Animals don’t seem to have that filter between them and awareness of reality.

So your core self sees Reality and tries to present it to you in dreams, but as we only have experience of our conceptual ideas and exoeriences it has to use images fro our everyday self.

Somehow I feel sure I commented on your crocodile dream but can't find it. But again you are mixing up your conscious fears about being hurt with the dream world where nothing can hurt you and everything in dreams are symbols meaning something else. Here is an example:

Example: Now a huge unknown creature began to enter into my awareness. I felt the presence of an enormous creature rising to the surface of something like a swamp or a body of water. At first I thought it might be a whale, but as I paid attention to what was happening it defined into a huge crocodile. This huge creature looked at me and said, “Mathew, join me.”

I laughed at this because it was so huge, and with so many associations of swallowing things, that I said something like, “What do you mean join you? Don’t you mean that you want to eat me?”

The creature replied to me, “No. No, it’s not like that, I’m just like a submarine. I have all these lives in me. I have many, many lives in me. I am life. I contain the many. You can swim this ocean alone Mathew, if you wish. Or you can join me, you can join the many. You can always, if you choose to live your independent life again and  leave us.”

I laughed here because I had the image of me being independent, stripping off, diving over the side of the boat into the ocean and swimming off. It is something I have often done in the sea, swimming long distances alone, or off to an island out to sea, by myself.

I began to give myself to that great creature which I now understood as the collective unconscious, the unity of lives. It felt as if it was absolving me, much as I had experienced earlier on. (One of those strange and beautiful, and also moving coincidences just happened. I am reading this in using voice recognition, and it is proving to be very accurate. But in the sentence where I said that I felt it was - and the word was supposed to be absorbing me - the software used the word absolving. And here I am again, back in the ocean, weeping as I know there is no judgment on the life I have led so alone and cut off.)

I am not sure of this, but your waking at 2.30 is something that happens to people who ask for help from

Hi Charlene – This At one time I helped a young woman explore a dream she had experienced eighteen years previously. The dream taught me so much because what we realised was that we are like trees – I mean inwardly we have similarities with every living thing because we all grow and change all our life. So if something bent a young tree the bend would show in later life even though the tree is more mature now.
So, something that was deeply felt years ago are still in you, but your years of experience has altered what you were at that time.

So, your dream shows you remembering your past life and your self image of the past. But your life experience has changed you, so that what was felt as awful is now is seen as something you can relate to – the rat/dog. I feel it is a part of our growing up that our early life which was distasteful to us is now seen in a different way. 🧙🙃❤

Hi Tony, I had the following dream.  I had just arrived to visit my mum  at the house I used to live.  As I got out the car, I heard a noise and looked to see a huge rat making its way through grass.  I am usually afraid of rats but this was brown and cute, almost like a dog, i thought. It might be a pet.  So I turned to go insde and as I opened the door to the house, a huge rat came out.  But again, it was brown and like a dog.  I went inside to tell my mum.

I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope 

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love 

For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith 

But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting. 

Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So, the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

Aristocrates - I feel from ou dreams that in some way you are hiding from what you are. I know the feeling having once done the same thing. I experienced it like this - Early in the session I started having fantasies about being attacked. Each time it happened I put the fantasy aside because I couldn’t see why I would be having these feelings that I was being attacked.

There were a lot of images flowing into my mind also about the horror of life in general - babies abused, children murdered, men and women shot or tortured. The fantasies returned and several men attacked me and were trying to drag me off somewhere against my will.

As the fantasy progressed, or replayed, I began to realise that it only appeared like an attack because I was resisting the process. In fact the men wanted to show me something that was important to me. They were being quite gentle, but because of my resistance, it felt to me like an aggressive act. I then let myself be carried off by the men, and began to feel as if a great chunk of my nature has been held back since childhood because of anxiety. In fact I had been frightened to ‘live’ this part of me. I had held so much of myself back throughout most of my life that I constantly felt there was something I was missing and had to search for. But it wasn’t an external thing - it was the me I had denied. B.M.

I don't know if tha was just me sounding off - so back to your dream. Floating may appear in dreams where the dreamer is getting close to someone of the opposite sex and some aspect of sexual feeling is present. Or else it can be an experience of awareness expanding beyond the usual boundaries of the persons beliefs or of their physical senses. Also it often happens in flying dreams or in lucid dreaming.

But in fact it leads to you having more inclusive view of something, the group of hawks. I see that as a realisation of you many potentials not being actively used. A while ago you dreamt of a small tree. I added to that - The tree represent what you have grown of yourself in this life. It shows you that yes you have done needs some work on yourself but it is still a 'small tree'. It doesn't matter, we are all small to start with, but the tree can be a sort of place that is a 'home' in your inner world - i.e. a place that is your real entry into the larger life. This dream show it as dead, relating to you several potentials.

College usually suggests an activity to do with higher learning. You will have to explore that to find excatly what it refers to. Maybe it is something you are already involved with.

A great promise is made - in three days. You must see if anything like that happened, but you have traumas the my need to be dealt with  the gunner. This suggest that any feelings of aggression may have been holding you back

Dream Interpretation / Re: A desert with a saint in it.

Dear Ana – I do not know how much you understand dreams. So I am giving you ‘the works’. I do this because maybe you haven’t realised that this a GREAT dream. One that brings you three great blessing.

What is a dream? “It seemed to me that a dream is like a huge great key that dangles in front of people – a personal experience that can unlock doors of experience and insight. It hangs in front of people but often because of their religion, or belief, they do not take the key to meet themselves. It is the key to their inner life. What do their political, scientific or religious views say about this key? There is so much to learn about dreams and how to approach, explore and benefit from them. To understanding your dream, you need to realise that the images in our dreams are just emotions, thoughts, fears, traumas, ideas, and feelings projecting out of you and appearing as images, people, or scenes outside you on the screen of your mind.

 The one most people identify with is the three dimensional physical world of the body. There a lot of rules to learn in this world; when very young we learn not to touch hot things; not to rush out into a road with moving cars. But as adults we have learnt not to step out into space while at a height because we will fall and have a major injury or die. The second dimension is totally different and is experienced in dreams or deep mental activity. It will surprise many people to realise that in this dimension you have no physical body, although most people are so locked into thinking that their reality is their body, that they create a dream image of themselves. But that is not all they carry with them, because they believe so much that everything is ruled by their body life and experience, they are also terrified of falling in dreams, they believe they can be torn apart by savage animals, also they frighten the life out of themselves with dream images of demons or even the devil, or are horrified of being shot or raped, etc.

Another feature of this dream and imagination dimension is that it often deals with timelessness. Babies and young children all live in timelessness/eternity.  So we already had it but lost it in the maze of words and thinking we created.

But whenever we dream its images are not like real life, because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but is an image like on a cinema screen, so that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear; so, all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

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. The problem is that we are often scared of or frightened of experiencing our emotions and so they confront us in our dreams. Avoiding them or controlling them is like running away from oneself – there is no escape. See Life’s Little Secrets – Opening to Life

Also, a dream is a communication between what has no recognised form – our core self – as far as our personality or reasoning mind is concerned, that is millions of years old and as formed while we were in the animal level of our evolution. So, to do this it uses images of people, things, and animals, as well as scenes that we might understand if we explore what we associate with the dream images. For instance, a man dreamt of a tarot card reader. But in understanding how dreams work the tarot card reader represent his own intuition, because that is what he associates with being psychic.

To understand this please read - A single cell, which is a seed from which all life forms evolved from, doesn’t become old or die because it is immortal, for it keeps dividing and doesn’t die. In dividing it constantly creates copies of itself, but as it does so it gathers new experience, it changes what is copied, so becomes the ‘seed’ for multi-cellular organism. We all started from the original one cell, and we, you and I, are the result of gathered experience.

No plant or creature grows from a dead seed, and each living seed carries within it all the past gathered from all its forebears. So, the seed in your mother’s womb is as old as and even older than human kind, and you carry that wisdom or memories in you. But in this life you developed a new brain, and the memories, education and programming you gathered this time are what you built your personality from, but beneath that is a very ancient self.

Finding this very ancient self, hidden as it is by all your personal thinking and opinions, you find you are free from all the painful emotions, suicidal urges and personal hurts. To explore it see  https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/ 

Okay so now to your dream – the desert can suggest loneliness – literally being deserted. It can also point to feelings you have of that you lack emotion or satisfaction, that there is no creativity or growth in your life; or you are a dry intellectual. Dry intellectualism; social isolation or sexual barrenness.
In some dreams it shows you feeling social isolation. In some women’s dreams it indicates whether the fear or reality of sexual barrenness. But the desert can be a warm and quiet place for a retreat from the ‘noise’ of work and society. Which one are you?

The figurine of Saint Jude Thaddeus. This suggest inner work or development you have achieved by your own ‘spiritual’ efforts. Remember the formless core to communicates with our every day self uses images of people, things, and animals, as well as scenes that we might understand. So Saint Jude may represent the real spiritual centre that you are ready to meet. Here is a man meeting something similar: “I was not in any way asleep, or in a trance. My evaluative rational self was keenly observing all that happened. This part is difficult to describe, as I feel incapable of communicating the power of the event. The man was ordinary in appearance, but as he got near to me it seemed as if a great force surrounded him that penetrated me completely. The force was love, buffeting me like waves I could barely tolerate. The man stood before me and took my hands and said, ‘You are my disciple.’

But he, in some strange paradoxical way, was myself. He was the cosmic mystery I have been born as. He was the very best of myself I had killed, murdered. He was my youthful sexuality I had suffocated to death, helped by the tenets of a religion that was supposed to be teaching his way, the way of life, the way of recognising one’s cosmic link.”

He had met Christ, his own cosmic mystery we are all been born as.
That was your first blessing.

In front of it I saw a hole. This is the second blessing.  For many saints discover such holes that fill with water. Look up the shrine at Lourdes and others. Dear Ana you discovered the water that once drank you will never thirst again. But to know that you must enter your dream by using https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/peer-dream-work/ 

The rainbow seemed crooked on it's right side but curved perfectly on the other half. I wondered why the rainbow was formed that way then went on my way. The third blessing.

At the core of each of us is an amazing potential. Throughout history religions have been built around connecting with or recognizing this potential. The reason being that it holds the possibilities of enormous transformation of body and mind. From it can emerge healing of illness and enormous change and enlargement of your mind. The action or release of this core potential into your everyday life is shown in dreams by anything shining or deeply beautiful, and the rainbow is such a symbol. But your rainbow is not fully formed. Suggesting that there is more inner work to de done. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site-2/

Hello Tony!
My name is Ana, I have visited your website from time to time for many years trying to figure out my dreams but I've never registered or wrote a comment. I tried registering today but the website wouldn't let me for some reason. Anyway I wanted to share a dream a had last night if that's ok:

I remember being in the middle of a desert. Nothing but sand and rocks. I was thirty and seemed lost. I looked down at the ground and found a figurine of Saint Jude Thaddeus placed in between some small rocks. Kinda looked like a small pedestal or something. On it's right side almost behind him was another small figurine of the Virgin Mary. My attention went back to Saint Jude's figurine. In front of it I saw a hole. I dug into the hole with my hands and water started coming out of the ground and filling the hole. I drank from it enough to subside my thirst. I remember thinking of leaving the figurines where I found them just in case someone else found themselves lost in the desert like me. I looked towards the distance and saw a sandstorm. I wondered if it was coming my way. I wasn't scared, just wondering. Then I saw clouds above the sandstorm and what seemed like rain. I remember seeing the sandstorm change color as if it was wet. I realized that the rain helped calm the sandstorm to some degree. Then I looked to the left of the sandstorm and saw a rainbow. The rainbow seemed crooked on it's right side but curved perfectly on the other half. I wondered why the rainbow was formed that way then went on my way.

I don't really pray to any Saint so seeing the figurine of Saint Jude kinda got me thinking and wanting to know what this dream means. When I was a child I used to live with my grandmother and she had a figurine of Saint Jude as well as other saints and the virgin mary. She is very religious to this day but I'm not. I pray but in my own spiritual way.

Thanks Romanov - I am not keeping an eye on the dreams posted here much now, because I have become intensely involved in trying to communicate by writing the many new things I am meeting in life.

Anyway, my feelings are you are actively still growing.


Dream Interpretation / Re: My Stomach Spoke to Me
« on: July 19, 2022, 10:55:03 AM »
"I call it a dream but I had woken up so was fully conscious though I was dreaming."

You must have been exploring the mental possibilities we have to arrive at breaking through to waking lucid dreaming. One of the huge advantages of this is that you can be in touch with the ability for your body to tell you what it wants to remain healthy. In your case to stop poisoning yourself by drinking alcohol. See Waking Lucid Dreaming - https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/the-waking-lucid-dream/#Waking

Another example: I was in a hospital. Doctors and nurses were about. I was led to realise my lungs were filling up with mucous or phlegm. The doctor said to me it wouldn't affect me in a short term, but if I kept on smoking I would feel the effect badly in later life. The dream was so vivid I decided then and there to give up smoking. B.K.

I had an amazing dream. Well I call it a dream but I had woken up so was fully conscious though I was dreaming.

I had never experienced anything like this before, but I was aware that my stomach was talking to me and i heard it in my ears. I saw myself swallowing alcohol and my stomach cried out, except that my stomach couldn't speak so it just made anxious noises which I felt them too. I was very surprised by the dream, and decided never to drink it again.
