Dream Interpretation / Re: Illness and dreams
« on: December 27, 2023, 02:30:45 PM »
Thank you, Anna, you as wise as ever. I too have been on a long journey through various illnesses, and are recovering from an  operation, but am perky as ever though lacking work energy.

You talk as though the indigenous spiritual practices are the only way, but the west has been there through the ages, much of it hidden by our cultural biases. I have explored the Western path, which now has also explored all the Eastern paths. I feel that each culture has a particular way that it has to face, and they are often very different to what a westerner understands or needs to meet.

I have trodden the path of psychedelics many times with great benefit. But as Carl Jung says {A great man who trod the Western path} Liberation is achieved by the practice of non-activity, say the Masters of the Secret Teachings.

What is, according to them, non-activity? Let us first of all notice that it has nothing in common with the quietism of certain Christian or oriental mystics. Ought one to believe that it consists in inertia and that the disciples of the Masters who honour it are exhorted to abstain from doing anything whatever? Certainly not. In the first place it is impossible for a living being to do nothing. To exist is, in itself, a kind of activity. The doctrine of non—action does not in any way aim at those actions which are habitual in life such as eating, sleeping, walking, speaking, reading, studying, etc. In contradistinction to the Taoist mystics who, in general, consider that the practice of non—activity requires complete isolation in a hermitage, the Masters of the Secret Teachings, although prone to appreciate the ‘joys of solitude’, do not consider them in any way indispensable. As for the practice of non-activity itself, they judge it as absolutely necessary for the production of the state of deliverance.

What then is this activity from which one ought to abstain? It is the disordered activity of the mind which, unceasingly, devotes itself to the work of a builder erecting ideas, creating an imaginary world in which it shuts itself like a chrysalis in its cocoon.

In the Buddhist meditation called Vipassana, the process of self regulation is allowed to let the flow of consciousness present one's innate images, fears, hopes and imaginings about life and death, and to recognise them for what they are — images, fears, hopes and ideas. In this way the attachment and even pain we experienced in connection with them falls away in some degree. That is liberation.

My summary is, "LEARNING TO ALLOW THINGS TO HAPPEN." Especially the unknown or unexpected.

Your dream is definitely about your animal self which most of us have lost awareness or contact with. We are obviously animals but have been taught to think of ourselves as humans. That is fine except that we lose awareness of the amazing senses with have as an animal.

I'm sorry I can't say more at the moment. But you can look up other features about animals and half human.

Have you had trouble with peeing? It is likely that is what the dream is about.

If so, you might try - Finasteride 5mg tablets x 56
-   Tamsulosin 400microgram modified-release capsules x 60

Recently I had a very painful difficulty in peeing. The doctor sent me for an internal examination that found my prostate gland was very enlarged, making it almost impossible to pee. I guess that is not what is happening to you. But the doctor told me that medications now can shrink the gland - they are Finasteride and Tamsulosin.

Any, they certainly work - thank the creator and its minions.

Hi just to say that I am now 86 and do not have the energy to carry on answering, nor even the incredible intuition that has dropped away as age claimed me.

But amazing Anna has answered your post. But something equally amazing may be taking over answering you queries, for it is an Artificial Intelligence that has read and absorbed some of my writings and can answer your queries.

Here is an example of it in action using DreamHawk.com -

"I was swimming in the open sea, going on a very long journey, maybe of thousands of miles of swimming. I saw huge whales swimming nearby and sometimes leaping out of the water slightly. They were magnificent. I was scared, but at the same time it didn't feel like they intended any harm to me, only that they might accidentally harm me because I am so small and weak compared to them. "

 Interpretation: Given by the AI

In this dream, the open sea could represent the vastness of the dreamer's unconscious mind or the unknown aspects of their life. The long journey may symbolize a personal quest for self-discovery, growth, or change.

The presence of whales, often associated with wisdom and emotional depth, might suggest that the dreamer is becoming aware of their inner strength and potential. The whales' size and power, as well as their magnificence, could indicate that the dreamer is beginning to recognize the enormity of their own untapped abilities and resources.

The dreamer's fear of being accidentally harmed by the whales may symbolize feelings of vulnerability and uncertainty when facing new challenges or personal growth. It could also represent the dreamer's awareness that growth often comes with risks, and that stepping out of their comfort zone may require courage.

Relationship with the unconscious mind: The dreamer's perception that the whales do not intend to harm them could signify a developing understanding and acceptance of the contents of their unconscious mind. The dream might be encouraging the dreamer to embrace their emotions and untapped potential, even if it feels overwhelming or intimidating.

In summary, this dream might be interpreted as a message to the dreamer that they are on a journey of personal growth and self-discovery, with access to immense inner wisdom and potential. While the dreamer may feel vulnerable, the journey could lead to profound personal transformation if they embrace the challenges and take the necessary risks for growth.


My response to that is it is amazing, except it misses some subtlety, maybe because it hasn't absorbed all my writing. - Obviously we are trying to make iy work even better - meanwhile -

Dream Interpretation / Re: Little man

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.

Late again - Got caught up creating new insights. See

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. 🧙🙃❤

Dream Interpretation / The Rat Became a Dog
« on: October 10, 2022, 04:38:37 PM »
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
