Dream Interpretation / Re: dinosaur (someone else's dream)
« on: Yesterday at 09:48:24 AM »
Monica - Hate and love are two sides of the same coin - especially if the person has not grown beyond the baby or child level of love.

"It is difficult to properly explain that the child you were can react to the events of your life with huge emotion; often a swing between murderous rage and an attempt to placate your mother. But I recognised the feeling. It was the murderous rage I had felt when I was suddenly abandoned by my mother.

Dream Interpretation / Re: Corporate Decision
« on: Yesterday at 09:38:54 AM »
Horizen – I see you are in the midst of a huge conflict, in which no side is willing to budge – in fact a dream world conflict.

Whether it is a dream or a waking life conflict, human life exists on very high building, and it depends on its existence for the basement, ground floor and floors in between. Take any of them away and human life has finished. It isn’t a case of what we like or do not like, of human greed and ignorance, but of simple observation. We humans often depict our evolution as a sea animal coming onto land and the rest is shown as a tour de force. But before that the land animal could only exist after massive effort and time had to pass as the land plants established themselves, then the insects and slowly small creature. But even that is forgetting the basement and ground floor – i.e. the single celled bacteria, viruses and the slow scaffolding of life we all need – the bacteria in our gut; the way that very different cells work together, for life is not just tooth and claw fighting, but a level of sharing we as humans cannot understand.

The tremendous exchange of gases, fluids, bacteria – along with the social, verbal, sexual and sensual signals and interactions going on around us and is influencing our own existence. Even bacteria share information with each other? They share what they have learned even with species of bacteria that are different. They give each other building blocks of what they have learned. If they have learned how to deal with a particular substance that is poisonous to them, then they will pass that information on to other bacteria. They give what they have learned. That is so fundamental to life even bacteria do it; genetic studies in bacteria have revealed that extensive gene exchange is the norm between different bacteria even though they do not have formal sexual reproduction. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/lifes-basic-functions/

But as a dream is an internal event, the conflict seems to be about different parts of your own inner world. I have found that such struggles are a waste of precious emotional energy. You dream showed you that neither if you were winning, so try a different approach – become them. In doing so you have all their force and ability, but you have your own purpose.

 Your dreams take place in a very real virtual reality, like a computer game. You are actually alone in your dream, so anybody you dream about is a creation from your memories, desires or fears. There is nothing else but you and your feelings, hopes or fears in your dreams. Nothing can hurt you or kill you while you dream. So in the world of dreams your most intimate fears and longings are given an exterior life of their own in the form people, objects and places of our dream.

They are not actual people in your dreams but a very real virtual reality. So I would suggest you integrate all the good and bad things from your relationship with them; because in your dreams about them you are  meeting your feelings. And if you do not do this the negative memories or feelings about them will keep coming back.
So try doing this by taking the dream images and pulling them back into your body. Yes, literally making them one with you. Do this slowly and allow any feelings that arise. This may sound strange but all the images in our dreams are projections from us onto the screen of our sleeping mind; so taking them back into you is like owning them and integrating them. It is called honouring what we feel.

Think of it like digesting something. In a relationship, whether a feeling relationship or one in which you are learning something, you often absorb things from the situation. You might take in such things unconsciously, as you did many things from parents and from the culture you were raised in. So the process of absorption in a dream may refer to such influences you are taking in. Obviously you need to feel the good and the bad emotions linked with them. That is not necessarily easy.

There is a double signification. It is to “consume” and to “con¬summate.” It means – both in a literal and a figurative sense – to take something into ourselves and make it part of ourselves, either for our substance or satisfaction, or for our completion or perfecting in some way.

When we digest, whether it is an idea, something we have read or learned, it has to be first surrendered to the life process. We can see this in our body – it is first chewed and swallowed, then broken down into parts and the useful stuff, the building stuff, can be taken into us and the rest is passed out. The important thing is that even if it is dead or living food, it is transformed into our own living being – in other words our living understanding. If it has not been transformed through digestion it is like something dead inside us. But to be capable of such digestion we must swallow the experience and allow our unknown self to do its work

We transform it by giving it to the fire within us that burns as our life process. So if you are troubled by dreams such as experiences, the best way to deal with them is to work on integrating the influence left in you from it. You can do this by thinking about the dreams about your experience and drawing on all you got from it. So I would suggest you integrate all the good and bad things. Give them a good chew and then swallow.

Monica - Thanks for explaining, it helps.

I see I try to throw everything I have learned in answering the dream, which in your case was not necessary. It could have been said in a small number of words. Such as:

You were in a learning situation - the university. The first lesson was to face a very primal level of yourself in meeting the dinosaur. You didn't handle it well and you (M) was with me to help me face it or deal with the problem, but you ran from it.

You go back a few paces from meeting yourself by entering the forest - the earliest phase of the inner journey https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/archetype-of-the-night-journey-the-search-for-self/

You held hands, probably because it is a way even chimpanzees do when they feel anxious. But even so you did not 'look' at each other directly, showing the anxiety of really knowing each other. The ballet  dancer may represent the ability to express a wide range of yourself - but that didn't go well either so again you pulled back. That really took you into a dark place within you, so much so you face the death if you loved image  (M) and freezing wind, meaning you again blocked any real living feelings.

Monica – About dinosaurs, Jurassic Park creatures are now out of date as far as their colouring is concerned, for in recent years it has been found that they had multi coloured bodies, often covered with feathers. So your coloured dinosaur may not be a flight of fancy. But in general dinosaur dreams tend to be about the ancient strata of our consciousness. 

Also I am not sure if you are up to date with what I see in dreamed of friends. When you think about a lover, a friend or a person you know, you are only taking in your thoughts, impressions and feelings about them. So many people do not realise that they have an inner person equally as powerful as the external person you know. You have taken in millions of bits of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences along with all the feelings or problems met by meeting or living with them, and they change you and make you the person you are. 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 person can appear in dreams because you still carry the memories or impressions of them, and so they influenced what you hold within you, and obviously the theme of your dream.

People tend to believe their life began at birth or at conception. That is quite a false concept, for the seed or cell that you developed from wasn’t a new thing, for 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 you gathered this time are what you built your personality from, but beneath that is a very ancient self. You ran away from seeing that.

The forest you entered was an easy entrance into your own depths, and was the natural in you, the least changed by our commercial world. Even so you are blissful but are not completely easy with holding hands in public. Even kissing leads to a sense of dying and a feeling you are both dead. The cars passing through you and your feelings about that are caused by the mix up we feel about physical life and dream or inner life. For in dreams nothing can hurt us and we cannot be killed, for we are already in the realm of death when we sleep. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/masters-of-nightmares/

In sleep we are already “ghosts, bodiless spirits, insubstantial; the world couldn't affect us anymore.” I had no sense of having a body. Thoughts had ceased, except for a murmur apparently a thousand miles away. Yet in blackness, in immensity, in absence of thought I existed vitally as bodiless awareness. We think that we are our body because we have no other experience of our existence. So, we identify with our body and so are terrified of dying – which in a sense is what we do every time we go to sleep and leave our sense of a body behind.

When we dream, our muscles are paralysed and we also lose all sensations arising from our body senses – our eyes, ears, taste, touch, and smell. In that condition, we are bodiless, but to maintain our confidence, as people get terrified when they get near to realising that they are fundamentally bodiless consciousness, so they create a dream image of themselves with a body. Out of that arises all the fear or sense of death – for even if we lose all our limbs we are still us.

I feel that you are trying to realise your wider life beyond what you know through your body with a gender, but your dream ends with an inexplicable shudder. Shuddering, vibration and shaking is movement, and movement is one of the main signs of life. Life and growth are interwoven, and is one of the first signs of massive personal growth or change is shaking or vibration in the body or pelvic movement or even electricity running through your body. That is why the Quakers used that name, because they shook or quacked; also the Shakers and Shaktipat participants had the same experience.

The example is from a man who had repressed his sexual feelings for years because of a personal problem. The example shows what happened when he began to emerge from the repression.

 Example: But very shortly the urge arose strongly again, this time for O. to handle my genitals, and to suckle her breast; as this happened, the most tremendous sexual feelings arose, and I began to shake and vibrate at the pelvis with pleasure.


Dream Interpretation / Re: Black king cobra
« on: March 16, 2018, 08:55:05 AM »
Well Sara ST – This certainly a very clear and wonderful dream.

I guess you looked at the several features about snakes, but it seems you missed the one titled black; which basically suggests things you are only just becoming aware of. The king cobra I will put into the snake feature, and any king thing says it is very important and with amazing features. In fact if you imagine being the King Cobra you may realise something of its wonder - https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

Thanks for sending in your dream because it exactly points out what is a main feature of snakes, namely they are only dangerous and poisonous when we are not honest with ourselves, and express such things as denying or repressing our real feelings, feeling jealousy or accusations against others, etc.

The snake is also an evolutionary force, so promises you enormous expression of your potential. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/energy-sex-and-dreams/ and https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/mountain-path/

To tune into the power of this evolutionary energy see https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/

Waking up I feel means waking up to the enormous potential you have and what you are being led to do in life - A long line of people is standing by my bed, waiting to talk to me – literally you have a lot of ability to communicate with others; but beware of gilding the lily - to answer to a better story/putting me in a better light.


Dream Interpretation / Re: Why Did the Guy I Was Dating Leave Me?
« on: March 14, 2018, 09:56:15 AM »
Clara – To begin to understand a dream such as yours it helps to realise that all the people, animals, places you see in your dreams, are simply your own feelings, fears, hopes and wonder projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind as images.

So the bad guys are your own negative feelings – maybe about feelings you had not admitted to yourself about him.

Example: And even if I was the subject of the dream I developed two techniques to avoid having to deal with the emotions arising in the dream.  One way was to change myself into another person and become the observer of that person;  the other way was, when things got really scary, to ask myself whether or not I was dreaming and turn the dream into a dream within the dream; only realizing that they were both in fact dreams, when I awakened.  I was always quite relieved that I could do this and avoid having to handle situations that I would rather not have dealt with.

This dreamer has developed a massive technique of repression, a way of avoiding instead of dealing with his fears.

Hi there, I dreamt about this guy who I was dating but lately we’ve stopped contacting and meeting up as much as before. In my dream, he was dragged away by some bad guys. Any idea what this could mean? Thanks.

Dream Interpretation / Re: Christmas tree
« on: March 11, 2018, 09:59:09 AM »
Green Tara – As I have said about myself in various places, “My life had felt shitty lately; I had lost any sense of God or hope, and all I felt was emptiness with nothing to live for or any satisfaction.” As the old saying goes, “We have to kiss a lot of frogs…”

Choices? Decisions or choices we make open new paths and thus are creating our future. But where do such decisions arise from? What lies behind the decisions we make? No plant or tree 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 in you. For we all started from single celled creatures and we unconsciously carry the experience of all the past. Dreams link with this past, but our present body only carries a brain with recent memories and experiences. And as your personality is built out of your recent memories you are unaware of the enormous experiences and actions you have lived. Yet it is out of such past actions and experienced that our present live and circumstances is built.

So, to quote you, “to manage a difficult relationship or myself better." I have a lot of difficult emotions emerging like in the past and want to make better choices and manage myself better.” All that you are at the moment is the result of how you have managed or reacted to all past experience. Don’t get angry about yourself, for you are just what you are, and it can all be changed if you make an effort to do so.

As for the fear that these abilities will never materialise in ones life, or that they are unreal - there is a simple answer to this. You can accept as true that most human beings can change, can make some simple move. That might be that they are frightened of the dark and manage to start walking in the dark. Or it might be that they are trapped by the boundaries of a religious belief and slowly move beyond their old boundaries. Whatever it is, they have gone beyond their old boundaries. So, where is the edge beyond which they cannot go? Where is there a fixed line beyond which no one can go? If one can make a tiny move, why not another tiny move forward, and so on until the change becomes easily observable even to others?

I can see that my health has emerged out of surrender, out of that invisible place inside us. Health has emerged for me. I can see that change has emerged. I can see that insight has emerged. An enormous amount has emerged. I therefore sometimes sense that infinity is on the other side of the surrender, of that unknown place from which all arises. I can see no end to what can emerge. That is what I sense. And out of my change in health and person, it is obvious that very important things can emerge. But it takes time and perseverance, so see again https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/

From your dream it seems you are living the life of a famous actor – remember we all have a very long past. This life has led to being well designed but pieces of it are falling of for we are all subject to change, and change has brought the power of renewal to your life – the workmen. But before the work can really progress a lot of rubbish/rubble needs to be cleared away. So don’t be so impatient with yourself, for bags full of stones have been cleared already.

The skeletal Christmas tree is something you have made inside you. It is a good foundation to build upon and add beauty to; it is something children in the forest village can see – a forest village is a place built in the midst of natural life, for it is your inner dwelling place. So be of good faith dear Green Tara.


Dream Interpretation / Re: murderer
« on: March 09, 2018, 11:44:56 AM »
Green Tara – You would certainly be learning many new things on the path of the Christian wife murderer. You would have to learn something many Christian never learn, “Judge not and be not judged.” Meaning accept all aspects of yourself.

Once in a class where we were using methods of release I found that a young woman had tensions in her back like bars of iron. When I started to relax the muscles the woman began to thrash around on the floor, beating the floor in obvious anger. A few minutes later she sat up and said, “So that’s why I haven’t been able to talk to my sister for ages, I was so angry at her.”

So you need to be able to allow your body to express. Aggressive feelings are one of the main expressions of our energy, along with sex, ambition and survival. Generally speaking, it is not wise to hold them back, or express them on parents. Wherever possible it helps to seek a more satisfying and constructive expression for them – beating a pillow with a rolled up newspaper or tennis racquet for instance, while allowing your feelings to vent

We often want to murder a relative or someone; in dreams is happens often, but we often avoida taking resposiblit and dream someone else did it. “These principles are beautifully demonstrated in the text: the Purple Screw, the Purplish Pea-pod, the Amethyst Necklace, Inviolate or In Violet, the Blue Father and the Red Baby, the Fur Thing; all these share the same nest with jealousy, murder, castration, incest, and rape. Yet this is not childish fun or a horror comic, but the serious age-old material which lies within us all. During the course of therapy I travelled deep into those remarkable regions of the mind and came upon a series of illuminations. I found that in addition to being, consciously, a loving mother and respectable citizen, I was also, unconsciously a murderess, a pervert, a cannibal, a sadist, and a masochist. In the wake of these dreadful discoveries I lost my fear of dentists, the clicking in my neck and throat, the arm tensions, and my dislike of docks ticking in the bedroom. I also achieved tran¬scendent sexual fulfilment.

Beyond these things, experiences nonpareil. I felt that I became - literally - a closed-up clam at the bottom of the sea, the music of a violin, Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus', an evil fur thing, a scared sperm; and in one magnificent episode, it was as if I had become the very Energy that exists before it is trans¬lated into Matter.” Quoted from Myself and I. - https://www.amazon.com/Myself-I-Constance-Newland/dp/0451022947/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1520595731&sr=1-2&keywords=Myself+and+I+-+Newland


Dream Interpretation / Re: I am you incarnate
« on: March 09, 2018, 11:16:22 AM »
Simon – An extraordinary dream demonstrating several important functions of dreaming and the inner life; the first is the small baby speaking which is a sign you have given birth to a dream baby that is a highly developed new aspect of you.

The emergence of the male organs making it both female and male is further proof of the new development of your ability to realise your inner duality - “When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner as the outer, and the upper as the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male shall not be male, and the female shall not be female: . . . then you will enter [the kingdom].” Quoted from ‘The Gnostic Apostle Thomas’

The baby says, Even if I explained you would not understand.” Which clearly says that you now hold within you a potential – the baby – that has still not unfolded, and because it is an unknown potential you cannot yet know it or understand it, when you understand it you will realise that you have a vast self most of which at the moment hasn’t been expressed.


Dream Interpretation / I am you incarnate
« on: March 09, 2018, 11:14:15 AM »

I was on a bed in the large upstairs room in the house I lived in while in London. It was a big bed. Next to me was a girl baby - mine and my wife’s. It was still very small. Lying on the bed looking at it, with my head near it, I said, “Who are you?” I meant, what past soul reborn are you?

The baby replied in a mature male (I think) voice, which astounded me. It seemed to have trouble in issuing the words, but managed, saying, “I am you incarnate.”

Surprised, I said, “What do you mean?”

The baby spoke again, saying, “Even if I explained you would not understand.”

I was then downstairs in the shop. Somehow I knew that the baby had undergone a small surgical operation. This had released male sexual organs from within, which had been there all-time. It now had male and female organs. And I now understood how it was me. My male sexuality had been released through it.

Monica – I have never found a dream that tries to frighten us – “I feel it's something that's trying to make me scared.”

Yes, our human frailties often lead us to feel anxious frightened or even terrified as I describe in https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/integration-meeting-oneself/#MyOwn I honestly are convinced, not out of any idealistic thinking, but out of long experience, that dreams are always trying to convey a way to grow beyond our present self.

Your experiences appear to be a powerful attempt to communicate something that obviously you do not want to see because it is scary. I see it not as a spiritual battle, but as a battle to prevent you from realising something maybe about death. “… as if trying to strangle it, then pushing it furiously against the mattress to make sure it'll disappear (maybe die).”

Remember that dreams and their content are a mixture of ones deep unconscious and ones personal beliefs and reactions. The unconscious was formed over millions of year from animal existence. Speech was only developed in the past few seconds of our long history. I myself as I explored the way the unconscious expresses in vocal sounds, first were simply meaningless sounds which by patiently asking for more clarity became a meaningful communication. The unconscious is a feeling thing, which often has never put its important feelings into ‘words’ and so often has to stumble about to achieve that.

Example: I moaned and grizzled for a while, but did not seem to hit the strength of the emotions I felt must be there. Gradually my body curled up in the foetal position, and my left thumb went into my mouth. Now the crying really began to develop and the intense emotions of being lost, alone, utterly dejected. I sucked my thumb and wept, jumbled sounds pouring out in the crying. Then the sounds developed into words, and I cried out again and again for my mother - “Mummy - mummy - mummy. I want my mummy.” It went on and on and became even more intense. It was as if a door opened, and I knew not only my own misery, but also the misery, hurt, rejection and loneliness of children all over the world.


Dream Interpretation / Re: My five year old daughter gave birth to boy
« on: March 08, 2018, 09:54:28 AM »
Dear Sara – You need to realise that when you dream you enter a different dimension of your mind that is no longer connected to your body senses. It is a dimension very different to waking awareness and so people often get terribly confused because they feel and think the dream must be the same as in their waking world. But your dream self understood exactly what was happening.

In dreams we deal with our inner world, not the world of our body and every day affairs.

We all live in a dual world, light and dark, male and female, creation and destruction, life and death, waking and sleeping. What many people do not realise is that we are all involved in this duality personally. Considering that we all have an inner world or dream world which is far more than the limited world shown by our senses, for we are like islands in a sea of consciousness, and the shoreline is the limited range of our senses. But our inner awareness spreads like an ocean in which we are like islands, and beyond the shoreline we are all connected.

But there is much more and your dream demonstrated it. Your young daughter, as far as your inner world is concerned, is a creation arising from your mutual loving care of her. As such she is more than a physical body and expresses your total creativity in a new way. Don’t think of this physically, but in a much bigger way where – well, to save time see https://dreamhawk.com/news/there-is-a-huge-change-happening/

So this new dimension of both of you, which is a unique extension of you both, gave birth to your son. WOW! It is an expression of the basic drive, but in dreams it often represents the emergence or birth of a new aspect to your personal expression. So you have given birth to a new aspect of your potential and are nursing it.

You see we are strange creatures little understood. Through your life you learn or absorb so much you grow as a person, and in doing so give birth to new extensions of your ability to respond to life and also your abilities. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/potential/ and https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/


Dream Interpretation / My five year old daughter gave birth to boy
« on: March 08, 2018, 09:50:50 AM »

I hope that this message finds you well. I would really appreciate your insight into this dream. You interpreted one of my dreams in the past, and it was very helpful.

I dreamed that I was walking through the grocery store with my young daughter when, all of a sudden, a baby boy came out of her. On the one hand, it was odd because she was her five-year-old self (not a pregnant woman), and when it happened, we were walking together holding hands as if it was a normal day in our current life. On the other hand, in the dream, I and the other people who were present were not entirely surprised that this happened. We were sort of expecting this baby to arrive any day, and when the baby came out of my daughter, everyone sprang into action (cutting the umbilical cord, bringing a carrier for the baby, calling my husband to let him know that the baby had arrived, etc.). My husband came to get us, and the understanding was that this was our son (even though our daughter had birthed him). I saw myself nursing the baby. Then my husband and I were talking in the car, and there were feelings of joy and perhaps some anxiety/protectiveness, similar to what new parents feel. Thank you so much!
