Dream Interpretation / Re: Are some dreams more literal than others?
« on: March 20, 2015, 11:53:12 PM »
Hi Tony,
Thank you for your response. I read the link and I downloaded 'Light on the Path'.
I understand the need to recognise my limiting beliefs, and how these limiting beliefs can act as a prisoner in my life. I'm grateful that I can see a lot of them (especially as they are highlighted in my dreams) and I realise that there are probably a lot more in the shadows that I am unaware of.
I'm not integrating the comments on ambition. In a way are you assuming that the ultimate desired path for all beings is to ditch all career aspirations and worldly goods to pursue spiritual enlightenment? Or, am I perceiving this wrongly? 

Dream Interpretation / Are some dreams more literal than others?
« on: March 12, 2015, 11:29:06 PM »
I know that it is important not to be so literal when we work with our dreams but sometimes I have a dream where it just seems so close to real-life and the meaning seems so literal that I can't help but think that way.

In my real life I am juggling full-time study with motherhood to realise my career dreams. I feel that I'm steering my life in a very positive direction. It's a time of great change and challenge as I am currently on my practicum and I deal with feelings of not being 'good enough'.
In my dream, my clinical educator views a recording of me doing therapy in order to give me feedback. She is playing the tape in a room where my fellow students are, and they are half-watching too. The tape keeps rolling once the session has finished and there is footage of my partner, fully naked, shaking his penis in front of the camera. I am seen laughing on the footage. My heart absolutely sinks as I realise that I will be discredited and I see the look on my clinical educators face and I realise how serious the implications of this will be.

I try to talk to her about it but she starts to cry and says "On top of this disgrace, I received your letter yesterday". My heart sinks even further as I realise that I have accidentally sent her my journal entry which reveals my unflattering feelings about her instead of my clinical reflection document.

I feel so disappointed in myself. I feel that I have blown all my chances at succeeding at my practicum and I almost can't bear the shame. I go outside and just lose it, I feel that all is lost and I just lie on the ground crying. My classmates are all around me discussing my fate with my clinical educator. I don't want to talk to anyone.

I can't get the image of my partner's naked body out of my mind and it makes me feel sick with shame. I also keep thinking "what if" I didn't mail the wrong letter.

OK, the events in the dream are not so literal as I doubt my partner would ever strip off in my workplace and have fun with the CCTV cameras. But, the meaning feels so literal. I feel like it is highlighting that part of myself that is deeply fearful of ruining everything, and not being good enough, and letting people down.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Questions about dreams / Re: Snooze dreaming

And I just want to add that I am somehow more troubled by these 'snooze' dreams....they seem to stick on me all day ruminating, whereas with other dreams I find it easier to come to peace with their meaning and let it go. I think this has something to do with my perception that they are more 'real' than other dreams, it's like I have to remind myself that they didn't really happen and I won't be suffering the consequences of the actions in the dream.

Hi Barry, I just read your thread and thought I would mention something that has come into my awareness lately. Have you heard Dave Asprey talk about mould as a neuro-toxin? I know that his diet is not for everyone but he has been on a healing journey with his own brain fog and is sharing some pretty groundbreaking information. He healed himself of an auto-immune condition with some pretty non mainstream bio-hacks. He also talks a lot about heavy metal toxicity. I listen to his podcast and I know that he has a doco coming out called 'Mold', I find the information really resonates with me. Check it out if it resonates with you too and best wishes for your healing journey  :)

Questions about dreams / Snooze dreaming
« on: March 12, 2015, 10:39:03 PM »
I have a question about my dreams in the morning. Sometimes in the mornings when I'm hitting 'snooze' on my alarm which goes off every ten minutes (I have trouble getting out of bed), I have this sensation that I am going in and out of the same dream exactly where I left it off. I am waking up fully and even sometimes lying there fully awake and thinking about my dream and then I fall back to sleep and seem to pick up the action and it continues on. Am I touching on a lucid dream experience here and perhaps could learn to enter into this experience with more awareness?

Thank you Tony. As always, having you illuminate my dream for me is enormously helpful to making meaning in my life  :)

Dream Interpretation / Turn around!
« on: March 08, 2015, 11:33:49 PM »
I was watching my toddler son run around as he had just learned to walk. I saw a small hole in the earth, it was perfectly round, and it was filled with very deep, dark, still, cold water. I felt scared that my son would fall in but my body was slow to move, I was made of lead. He slipped in silently and was gone. I knew he was gone but I still dragged my body over to the hole and thrust my hands down in earnest. I screamed and cried that he was gone. An old love came up behind me and tapped me on the shoulder, he smiled and said 'turn around'.....when I did, I saw my son, he was playing happily as if nothing had happened.

Dream Interpretation / Lyrebird
« on: January 16, 2015, 10:07:45 PM »
Hi :) I have been fascinated with lyrebirds and I often see them on my bush walks - my best friend gave me a special mug with a picture of a cute little lyrebird on it. I dreamt that I was overseas and someone gave me a cup of tea - I was very surprised to see that it had a picture of a lyrebird on it! In the dream I thought to myself that it was a very special sign - especially since I know that lyrebirds are native to Australia. Then I started to see little lyrebird symbols everywhere - I was delighted!

Tony, I am so happy and grateful that you have replied! I felt that this was an important dream for me and I've craved guidance so thank you for guiding me away from literal interpretations and go deeper with this. Love, love, love that you have awoken my awareness to my inner male. Thank you.

Hi Dreamers :)
I've had a lifelong fascination with exploring my dreams when my Nanna gave me a dream diary at 14 and encouraged me to write down all of my dreams, she herself was attending a Jungian dream analyst at the time (which was pretty out there when you consider her background). I see dreams as precious gifts from my soul/psyche and I allow them to guide me through my experience in this world. Dreams help me tap into and honour what I feel deeply - something that I find harder to do in waking life. Even if I don't feel that I've fully understood my dream I find it very therapeutic to journal my dreams, the process of writing it down draws out a lot of detail about each dream and I love to get it all on paper while it is still alive. I've often thought that dreams are such an untapped resource in society, I feel like I've craved a mentor or a community that is well versed in dream symbolism and archetypes to guide me deeper into my dreams. I guess that is where the internet comes in, I'm grateful for this forum and look forward to reading your dreams and journalling my own dreams x

Dream Interpretation / Old love appears again
« on: January 01, 2015, 12:04:45 AM »
Again I am living in a place where all the dwellings and shops are connected by still, calm water. People move freely between them in canoes. This time the dwellings are more built up, there are some high rise buildings and the village has more of a bustling city feel to it. I am in the top floor of a building talking to a girl who wants to be with my Old Love and is trying to find a way to get him into the country - I put my feelings aside and give her advice and encouragement about how they can be together. Then I am swimming in in the water, people start pointing behind me and I turn around to see a huge wave of epic proportions that is very unusual for this area. I'm not scared, I feel confident. I get ready, time it right and body surf that wave with my hand thrust out front in a superman fist. It's exhilarating (like a flying dream) and the whole city is watching me amazed. I feel powerful. I look down and see a dorsal fin surfing the same wave below me, at first I don't know what creature it is and then I think it's a dolphin. I feel grateful and blessed by the creature's presence.

Dream Interpretation / Old love
« on: December 31, 2014, 11:44:47 PM »
I have an old love appearing in my dreams almost every night. I am partnered with children but I recently have been in contact with this person after a 13 year absence. We live in different countries.
*Dream-My home was in a small village where the houses were connected by water. People travelled between houses freely in small canoes and there was a warm, community feeling to the village. 'Old Love' just appeared and I knew he had come from a long way away. I felt a deep happiness and contentment wash over me just to feel his presence. He was silent and very steadfast and confident in his presence in my world, just having him there was a huge comfort to my soul. I felt a lot of things relax inside me. I felt safe and seen when he looked at me. We attended a family dinner and some members of my extended family questioned Old Love's presence, they were asking me who he was and why he was there. I felt very strongly and spoke up assertively about how right it was that he was in my world, after that there was a feeling of all encompassing love and acceptance coming from everyone for him and he looked very much at home, as if he knew everyone. We wanted to be alone and go for an explore so me and Old Love jumped into a canoe. I paddled. It was very peaceful, we didn't talk but there was a feeling of complete and utter understanding, we just looked at each other and smiled. We arrived at a small rocky mountain and we played on it for a while jumping around the rocks and having fun. We hopped back in the canoe and paddled some more. The water was very calm and still but I'm not sure how deep, I don't think it was neither very shallow nor very deep. Some sort of sea creature kept swimming up to us, about 4 or 5 of them. In my dream I couldn't identify the animals to myself, I was perplexed by them but not scared. It had fur and a friendly face and if I had to relate it to something in the real world I would say a beaver. Then we came to a bank and there were friendly looking stingrays lying on their backs eating some sort of other sea creature that was being thrown directly into their mouths by some people, I was perplexed by this in the dream because the creatures they were eating resembled sharks and seemed bigger than the stingrays mouths but they gobbled them down easily. The stingrays seemed like very peaceful, happy creatures to me, they seemed comfortable with our presence. We kept paddling and then I noticed that my end of the canoe was slowly submerging in the water and my bum was getting wet. The canoe was made of a woven cane material, when I looked at it I wondered how water hadn't entered up until now. I didn't feel in danger as we could easily make it safely to a shore line and I could keep us afloat by thrusting my body upwards and paddling harder. Old Love was across from me still smiling, he didn't seem worried. In the dream it seemed so normal that I was the only one paddling and he was just watching me.
-When I woke up from this dream I felt very sad and I cried a lot. I felt a deep sense of yearning for that 'knowing' look of love that you share with a person. It says 'I get you' and the feeling of 'getting' another person and being 'gotten' gives both such a sense of wellbeing and desire. In waking life it made me question whether I should be in contact with this person or not, I love talking to him but I feel that it is disruptive to my life.
