The dream shows you on the wheel of Karma. Karma is the rule that what we sow in life is what we eventually get, but it is not about punishment or about pessimism but about your own power to create your future.

The Buddhist wheel of life is often described as a continuing wheel of misery which one must escape from by killing out our sense of self. Well that is one form of escaping, but another way is a path taken by ancient races such as the Native Americans of facing the pain and transforming it. It is a path that many in today's world are taking, the path of transformation.

I had the sensation a snake curling up around me. I then began to see serpents’ faces all over the wall - then I saw myself as a fat, pot-bellied snake slithering gaily away to destruction, I felt horrified and thought, “Whose destruction?” I then realised it was my own destruction - I was destroying myself. I seemed to be having a battle between life and death-it was a terrific struggle, but life won. I then saw myself on the treadmill of life-a huge wheel was going round and round with hundreds of people on it. Some were on top going confidently through life, others were getting jostled and trodden on but still struggling to go on living (I saw myself as one of these people) and then there were the others who just couldn’t cope with life and were being crushed to death in the wheel. I had another realization of how I was destroying myself-by carrying on this affair with this married man. . . . I knew it must cease and knew that I must never see him again.

Nadine – Your grandmother showed herself to your mother in a vibrant green dress. In the language of dreams green is like the power of growing things that cracks roads and pushes to exist vibrating with life.

That wonderul living influence clothed you also. You ask whether you are on the right track. The dream replies with a resounding YES!

Dream Interpretation / In A Beautiful Vibrant Emerald Green Dress
« on: January 21, 2020, 09:28:58 AM »
Hello. I was wondering about a dream my mother had, as whenever she dreams about my grandmother (who passed away over 5 years ago) its usually to tell her something. This particular dream involves me, so I am curious as to its meaning. In my mothers dream my grandma was in her mid 30s (which is a few years older than me) and she is in a beautiful vibrant emerald green dress and shoes, and in the dream my mom recalls that I also was wearing a green dress also.

My mother doesn’t recall anything else happening in her dream, but just remembers feeling good about the dream, it seemed very positive. I wonder if this has anything to do with my constant wonder and questioning about my life path, and whether I am on the right track?? My life has taken many turns in the last 3 years, so I am just hoping for stability, peace and moving forward financially and in my personal life.
Thank you – Nadine

Dream Interpretation / Re: An Aggressive Great Bald Eagle Attacking
« on: January 14, 2020, 09:51:51 AM »
I wonder what the aggressive giant bald eagle means to you. Also what are you aware in everyday life that has pinned you down making you less able to defend yourself. I wonder whether you have problems dealing with male agression?

All images are your own deeper mind expressing itself in images which need it be explored. As an example - I had a very clear mental image of a baby elephant. It was like a bas-relief made out of clay, but mobile. I could see that the baby elephant had some problem with its trunk, and I wondered why my unconscious had produced this image so clearly and what it meant. Immediately because I asked the question what it meant the image disappeared and a series of associations arose unbidden. It was that the elephant actually ate with its mouth, but it had to reach out for everything with its trunk. As a baby the elephant would suckle with its mouth, but as it matured it would have to learn to get its own needs with its trunk, therefore the problem was about me reaching out for my own needs as an adult.

But dream exploration needs to be learned and practised. Many people say they cannot get any results from using the techniques. It is like any skill, like riding a bike or driving a car, at first you will fail until with practise it becomes second nature.  You need to learn new skills and habits.  When they are learned they are life enhancing like being able to drive a car.

For instance when you become a dream person or object, you can speaking as the object or dream person, but one needs to take time with it. Learn how to actually describe what you are as that dream object or person. If I dream of a dog, don’t simply describe what you think a dog feels like, but actually take time to tune into the dream image and describe the dog dreamt about. Is it an old or young dog? What is it doing in the dream? Listen to your feelings and describe what it/you feel.

While 'being' a dog I felt. "as the dog I felt that splendour of leaping into space and splashing into the water was wonderful and exhilarating. The shit part of being a dog was that I had to wait for my owner to throw the log. I had to have my button pressed in order to allow me to make that wonderful leap. What I don’t understand, as the dog, is why doesn’t my owner just leap into the water like this? He doesn’t have to wait for his buttons to be pressed. He has all that freedom and just stands there. What is he waiting for?"

Remember that each image is a creation of your own mind and unconscious, so you are really describing yourself. Say whatever comes and consider its value afterwards. Below is a quote from Tiziana Stupia’s book Meeting Shiva 

“Tony taught me a process in which a dream could be interpreted and understood by assuming that everything, people and objects alike, in a dream represented aspects of the Self. Sitting cross-legged on the squishy, old-fashioned sofa in the living room of my sadhu’s cave opposite Tony, I’d close my eyes and mentally return to a dream I had the previous night. He would ask me questions about the dream, which I’d answer in the first person. So if I dreamt about a tree, I would ‘become’ the tree, assume its personality and respond from its viewpoint. He’d ask ‘So what kind of tree are you? Are you big or small, old or young? What do you look like? Where are you growing? Why are you in Tiziana’s dream?’  This sounded like a silly exercise at first, but I was soon enough convinced of its validity. It was fascinating to discover a wealth of insight and emotion emerging from my responses, and understand how they related to my current situation. They also pinpointed exactly where I was in my growth process. Sometimes, the dreams would uncover unconscious fears and intuitions. Often, they also held important clues and offered solutions to my problems. It was like doing detective’s work – arduous at times, but rewarding beyond belief.”

So try 'being' the great bald eagle!

Dream Interpretation / An Aggressive Great Bald Eagle Attacking
« on: January 14, 2020, 09:49:18 AM »
Tony, please help interpret.  I had a dream just now where I saw two giant bald eagles walking towards each other.  One stronger and more violent, attacks the other and I rush over to try to protect it.  The giant aggressive eagle has me pinned to the ground and I can’t move.  I’m trying to avoid it’s giant beak and worried it will peck at my face.  I call to my girlfriend to come over and free my arm so I can try to protect myself.  I woke up as I was pulling my arm out from under my blanket.  Any suggestions?

Jo – This is an excellent example of how dreams try to teach us things. Of course dreams express in a very ancient language, language that developed in ancient life forms before ever words were invented. The ancient language is one of example, the language that has taught youngsters for millions of years by watching what mother or father fox, bear wolf did – all without words. See the Bear picture - https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/bear/

You have the same example in your dream but didn’t catch on, “Some people were calm and the idea was those who stayed calm, the tiger would never chase them.”

Unfortunately about 98% of people were never taught recognise that the things we learn in the external world do not apply to our inner self. 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 of people and things as scenes outside you on the screen of your mind.

So 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. In the early days of moving pictures, a film was shown of a train coming fast toward them; the viewers all fled in terror, fearing the train would crush them. That is exactly the same response if you are terrified of any thing you dream of. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/masters-of-nightmares/ 

Example: I was standing on my patio and there was a bear inside the fence also there were children taunting the bear. I yelled at the kids to stop teasing the bear. Then all of a sudden the bear came towards me; it was a brown bear with its massive size and it stopped and looked at me. Although I was frightened I was courageous enough to pet the bears head, reaching over his  large mouth to reach his head. Then, all of a sudden the bear lay on his back and I begin to brush my hand on his chest as to pet him in a downward motion, the bear just gazed at me.

I had a dream..Me and some of my family members went to a strange place … Firstly there was very few houses..Then we discovered more..And also we discovered that tiger resides to this place like normal beings..You will find them anywhere you go.. I saw the tigers only resting,calm and composed..Then we visited a temple..There we’re also tiger and tiger cubs. We listened to the voices of people being chased by tiger cubs or tiger. And after sometime we all were afraid that the tiger might Chase us.. some people were calm.and the idea was those who stayed calm, tiger would never chase them..And then another moment appears a tiger cub chase people..

The people get anxious and start screaming and running in groups.Thr tiger cub came inside the group of people very fast and everyone was. Trying to protect herself and started pushing each other. In this scenario the tiger cub bite onto my leg but somehow I backed off and protected myself. Then the chase continued.I decided to go inside the temple and I stood there.now there were less people.yhe tiger cub came inside very calmly. He was was very small..But in my mind it was like he was searching for me..He looked on me and started staring with the kiddish eyes .Inside my heart I knew I will run if he will attack on me… Wandering around he sat on a box..I advised the priest of the temple to cover the box so that it could not chase anyone.it happened we all were relieved.then after this me and my family thought to go further.it was raining..And it was some Forest like place.and I don’t remember further what happened.

Dream Interpretation / Re: My Dead Grandmother
« on: January 05, 2020, 11:59:20 AM »
Deep – Dreaming of a dead grandmother is important – See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/grandmother-grandma-gran/

But in the back of your mind  you knew she was dead; such knowing is often coloured by the belief that once your body dies that is the end if your existence. So with such beliefs your search was fruitless because you felt she did not exist, and in the world of dreams such feelings create what you experience in dreams.

Whether what we experience is beautiful or terrible, dreams are the amazing and tremendous experiences of virtual reality? Your dream, any dream, is a full surround experience of virtual reality. While in the dream it usually seems totally real to us.

You went to the police, suggesting that you reached out to solve or help with a problem, to right a wrong, for protection or support. So ask yourself what were you in search of and why? 

 In the end you light a candle which might be a way of remembering your grandmother or honouring her memory. It seems you do not know the ways your inner kife and dreams work, so ti might be helpful to read https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/grandmother-grandma-gran/#Gran and https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dreaming-of-death/#WhoSaid - or. "Who said death was the fiinal end?"

Dreamangel - Thank you for writing back.

I want to tell you a story from my own life - but opf course it is partly your own story too. It happened by using LifeSteam.

"I was like Atlas, supporting a world upon my shoulders and arms. It was so heavy I swayed and stumbled, and eventually was crushed - falling over - lying on my back, arms and legs wide. My hands went back and tried to lift up this world but failed. Then they went into a prayerful position, high up, and afterwards seemed to spin the world up above my chest, then take it upon my shoulders again and gradually rise. I seem to remember that flickers of strength or energy had gradually arisen from within me to enable me to lift the world. Now my right hand began to swing round and round, fast and faster. My left hand joined in and I understood that I was whirling this world faster and faster. Suddenly, and with a mighty effort, out rushing breath, and a sense of finality, I let go and the world swung into space - in orbit. It was here that I saw it as a creation drama, and felt from within that all such dramas have great inner meaning.

Now I stood facing the Light, hands together at the level. I felt my wrists were chained, and I held them up to God, the Light, to be freed.

It was then as if God said, “Tony, you hold up your arms to be freed, but you have never been chained - only by yourself.”

“It took almost three months for me to really begin to really understand what that was about, because a lot of our problems express as dreams or dream symbols. So one day when I was describing the experience to a friend I suddenly realised what it was saying. Before starting LifeStream I had felt very ill, but also ill at ease with myself.

At that time, although I had not been brought up in an actively religious family, I had lived by a strong religious code. I dealt with difficulties in my marriage and myself by applying the rigid morals I used to guide my life. I disciplined myself to live the sort of life I felt God called me to live. That was the world I had created. I had made a world so rigid and heavy to bear that it had crushed me and made me ill. Through opening up I was beginning to throw off that old way of life and the restrictions I had placed upon myself. I had begin to develop a sense of meeting life face to face, instead of creating a God in the mould of my own narrow conceptions. I had begun to feel a communication with life itself within me, and truly it was saying -’Tony, I have never chained you.’”

Dreamingangel – I see I have replied to your dreams in the past, but I will treat this as if you are a newbie.

For you start by not driving your car – everything in your dreams belongs to you. This suggests that you are trying to get somewhere in life but are not fully in control of your decisions in driving. This often happens because we are often deeply influenced by another person, so there is some measure of conflict between what you want and the influence someone else has on you. Also it seems it is not a direction or decision you make often.

The woman you do not recognise is an aspect of your own behaviour you are not really aware of. Because all the images, people, animals, places we see in our dreams, are simply your own feelings, fears, hopes and wonder projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind as images. So, it makes sense to take the image of your dream person, thing or animal back into you and own it. In that way, you are meeting and dealing with the things about yourself you are not owning or conscious of. That is why dreams are often difficult to understand, because we are hiding things from ourselves. To do this you can use https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

The dream is full of themes such as right dealing with right and wrong, religion and of course your own inner conflicts. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/your-guru-the-dream-step-two/#Themes

The conflict is so intense that in the end you are shouting “Do you have any idea what you've done to us? What we will have to go through now?" That is I believe a self prophecy.

Remember the two men, the police and the other you are all you playing roles in this drama of your life which ends with a scene of self judgment. But why are you so harshly self judgemental on yourself – “Do you have any idea what you've done to us/me? What we/I will have to go through now?"

Where have you learned such rigid judgments of right and wrong – was it in some way connected with the white clapboard church? Where white and black were awful opposites?

The end of your dream shows how traumas have influenced lives and maybe left them twisted.  Se https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/trauma/ and maybe http://dreamhawk.com/forums/index.php?topic=4931.msg12086#msg12086

Mikey – I cannot rest in myself having just wrote a very non everyday reply. You have come back often, maybe seeking inisights. But there is so much in your dream and to explain what I see that is vitally important I will tell a story, because I hope it is an example that has meaning.

In the early 1970’s, after years of active discipline I learnt to allow the dream process to break through into my conscious life, so I could experience a dream while fully awake. For many people this might not seem much because they have no understaniding of what is involved. But for me, I discovered that dreams show us the things we are refusing to acknowledge about us, that are horrible to witness, we are scared of, so we built a huge wall to protected us from seeing our own ignoble self. But also dreams often reveal universal truths.

As I learnt to allow myself to experience thes dreams consciously, at first it was traumas that emerged with deeply felt emotions and once experienced they were gone and the underlying depressive emotions wiped out. But after that had gone for some time – I used to practice every week – I experienced this:

''It started with a waking dream in which I was in the First World War in Germany. The Germans had taken a hill we had been defending, and I had been captured. The dream process continued as if it was something very real. I experienced, in a very deep sense, being a prisoner and being tied to a bed. German officers tortured me by crushing my left foot, but I wouldn't give information. During the fantasy my body actually took on the position of being tied and tortured, and I cried out with the pain. It all seemed real to me, and knowing my name as that soldier, I thought it must be memories of a past life. 

Because I would not talk I was strapped on the bed face down and a line of German soldiers came and one after the other, buggered me. I lived this all out with my body and feelings too, and I really understood what people meant when they say 'I feel buggered:' It was as if my personality had been smashed, broken, and I was just a body walking around. On talking this over with a friend however, I noticed when I came to the past-life descrption, I didn't look her in the eye, and I thought I must be avoiding looking at something in myself.

So I continued to explore. It took a long time because we do not want to see what we have done to ourselves. To cut a long story short I slowly realised that when I was thirteen an uncle who had lived through two wars gave me a series of volumes about the first world war, all photographs of the horrors we do do each other in such conflicts. 

I gradually realised that I had lived through a huge conflict, a first world war, in my youth as a thirteen year old, and my dream graphically described it. I was in my forties as I was realising this. For from thirteen until twenty one I had killed my sexaul self. I had no sexual experience, no ejaculation, nothing. I had killed or maimed the huge experience of sexual growth. So instead of expressing it outwardly the sexual energy had turned inwards into myself over and over causing a fragmenitng of my person.

So instead of owning it and seeing the damage I had done to myself I projected it onto a past life, into mysticism instead of real life.

The cause of it was that I had been born prematurely and wasn’t breathing but my grandmother managed to get me breathing. So my mother had a terrible fear that I wasn’t strong enough and could die, and at the time Tuberculosis was everywhere, and as sign of TB was greater sexual need as one died, probably to procreate. So my mother, fearing I had TB because I had started masturbating, one day erupted emotioanly and screamed at me, “Daddy and I don’t want you to die, and if keep masturbating you will die.”

The shock of that lasted till I was 21, and it wasn’t easy to become a normal person again.

So the message is dreams show what you do or have done to yourself and projected it out as done  by others. So I ask, “Why have you crushed your inner female?”

Hey Both – I came across this yesterday. It is the most succinct of any such descriptions, and in my mind completely on the ball.

"Neither heavenly nor earthly, neither mortal nor immortal have we created thee, so that thou mightest be free according to thy own will and honor, to be thy own creator and builder. To thee alone we gave growth and development depending on thy own free will. Thou bearest in thee the germs of a universal life. 
Pico della Mirandola 

Oratio de Hominis Dignitate

For it inclides all humans experience that we find in the world ---- from murder, rape, porno life, to the great beings that we find in our world. To me it gives us complete freedom to be anything, not a rigid right or wrong that we must live by, but creators of our own lives. And by our decisions we create our own future."

I remember the first time I felt communicated by my larger self. “One day I experienced the following. Now I stood after going through an experience of finding freedom and I stood facing a great Light, hands together and I felt my wrists were chained and I held them up to the Light for the Light to free me. It was then as if the Light said, “Tony you hold up your arms to be freed but you have never been chained only by yourself.” I stood there before the Light knowing I was nothing yet I was loved it was as I understood I was No bloody good yet wonderful. Now a great love welled up in me for what had given me love It was so tender. It was as tender as the love one feels for a newborn baby, a flower, a sleeping child, yet as passionate as for a lover. And expressing these feelings I said I love you I love you I love you I cannot describe my emotions or That Presence huge benign formless yet close prescence that was directed at me alone with great love person to person. There was no personality yet there was a person. If you are doubtful that Life itself can speak to one like that I had been spoken to by Love and that was the root of my own being.” As Mirandola wrote - Thou bearest in thee the germs of a universal life. 

To be otherwise we would be like robots with no ability ot choose - but be the victims of a 'caring' god.

Denise - The shaking while you are awake and the event in the dreams are one and the same. Many people have told us about this sort of vibrating and shaking. It is a natural process by which the dream function releases tension or suppressed emotions. Don’t forget that we dream every night during dreams, our unconscious process clears up inner business which hasn’t been attended to during the day. But for many people the dream process breaks through into waking life.

One woman who worked with us allowed the shaking to express itself freely. As it developed, emotions arose. She remembered her only baby which, because she was unmarried, she had handed over for adoption. She had returned home and started to cry, but a neighbour quickly stopped her. Now the crying she had withheld 17 years before flowed freely. Afterwards the shaking stopped, the crying subsided and she felt relieved at last. Your vibrating, we believe, is an attempt by your subconscious to either release old hurt feelings — or to make you aware of a new insight.  See https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/
