Dream Interpretation / Re: Enormous Harvest-Imported
« Last post by Tony Crisp on November 11, 2018, 11:04:49 AM »
Andrew – This is a very unusual dream, that’s why it has taken me a while to answer it. It suggests that you have already worked hard on your inner life, and your dream is confirmation of the huge harvest you have gathered from it.

The house on top of the hill spells out how you have managed this. It shows that you inner growth started in the country town/village you grew up in. Being born in such a place meant you absorbed the attitudes and beliefs of your peers. But slowly you moved to the top of the hill and established a home there. This move is one which shows the great change you arrived at, one that allowed a much wider view than you started with, a change in your prevalent worldview or paradigm. Well, you seem to have moved what lies beyond our generally accepted agreement and perhaps have realised something of what lies beyond our worldview.

But you did not choose to live alone on top of the hill but set about helping with the harvesting – ‘something I often did in my youth’ – so you chose to help by joining in the work.

Leaving a sack open for the birds indicates that you acknowledge that we are part of the natural world, and ready to share with your fellow animals – for we are a human face on a long line of beautiful animals. In fact, “You ride an ancient beast.” The ancient beast is your body, and your conscious self is the modern and recent rider of it.

Anna – The Canada, you as a twelve year old, the mass of washing, and the snow storm, is all full of information, which might be summed up as a new start, or even a new phase of your life. I will try to explain where I get this from.

Canada suggests a new surrounding, so an internal change in the way you see or relate to things. The snow presupposes winter time, a time when a new year/life is being formed. I am not sure why, but I feel the snow is a blanket of purity underneath which new things are starting their growth – a storm because it may have been quite an experience of your own enormous energy enlarging you.

The twelve year old year, recently I have begun to see this as the possibility that the twelve year old you didn’t get the right environment to fully grow and flower, and so it might be that now it is ready to complete your growth in that area.

 A very happy situation and dream.

Thanks for sharing it.

Yes I thought you might say that. I do understand what you say. 
But as I've had years of flashbacks, I do need to sometimes treat the dreams as not being metaphors, because many of my worst dreams turned out to be actual memories of childhood experiences that had been repressed.
That would not be the case for this dream however.
Perhaps in this dream it's more the case that I was trying to include this angry part of myself, trying to open communication with it.
 (Cowering does invite attack, but with certain people/energies, showing strength or confidence, invites greater attack. It's a power play, if you don't show submission, they'll come after you with full force. I understand Int he dreamworld  - this does not apply...) )


I am reading through the link to Summing Up, it's good to read all this information together, fab thank you.
And thanks for all your replies Tony :)


Actually have you written anywhere about flashbacks and memories? I'd love to read if you have..

Omega – You still appear to be seeing your dream as if it is similar to waking life – yet the dimension of dreams is so very different. How can you explain this dream – “It was a mammal of no particular type – a bit like a mixture of dog, rat and guinea pig. It seemed very ordinary and tame, and stood looking at me. I walked toward it and stretched out my hand. It was a tan colour with short fur and gave a feeling of being okay to approach, so I touched it to stroke. This was okay and I was thinking there was no problem when the creature leapt at my throat in a flash of movement and ripped my throat out.

This sounds disturbing but I simply observed this and thought to myself that stroking and trying to be friendly was no way of dealing with this thing. It was as if I was in command of the imagery in that I simply formed another body. But then it dived into me to devour me from within. The only way that felt as if I might deal with the creature was to realise I was creating the imagery so could exit it and build a new dream body. In fact apart from the gory imagery, there was nothing to be frightened of, as the creature was only attacking my dream image of myself. As I wasn’t identified with this, it couldn’t hurt me. That was the end of the dream.”

Can you see that in your dream you are playing a game of hide and seek with yourself? You are in a world of marvellous virtual reality created out of your own mind – maybe unconscious mind – where only you exist with all the characters you dream up.

You actually believe, “Me the woman; I'm afraid. Afraid, afraid. The only way I can keep safe is not to anger this man, try to connect with him somehow, otherwise he'll kill me next.”

Can you see the game you are playing – you the cowering person. Cowering invites attack, even from yourself. Please read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/summing-up/

Thank you Tony. That rings true, these rock stone carvings that come into my dreams..
The ancient self..I guess I've never consider that as something real.
But it definitely 'feels' right for how these rocks feel.

Thanks Tony,
Really appreciate the info you have shared.
This is very helpful:
if you can meet the present situations you will pass on into a more peaceful phase. It is not easy, but in a sense you do not need dreams because you are meeting the results full on. It might help you to use https://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/using-your-intuition-1/ because you can ask questions and explore what is presently in darkness. It can be a wonderful guide.

I am contemplating this feeling in the dream :- "We are both hurting and I want to comfort him physically,intimately.I feel we both need each other."
" I want to comfort him physically,intimately " seems to be suggesting a desire to connect with the unconscious directly in waking life and not only in dreams.
Many Thanks

Omega – I know I have quoted this several times, but I feel it is necessary to explain your dream. “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. To explore it see http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/

That ancient self is trying to communicate with your personality by using symbols you might understand – communications that are vital to understand. You are the leading experts on your inner stones – that have been with you since life began as a single cell life form. For religions talk about eternal life, but of course they are not talking about our body’s life, but there is such a thing as eternal existence, for a cell doesn’t become old it is immortal, for it keeps dividing and doesn’t die. In dividing it constantly creates copies of itself, but as it gathers new experience, it changes what is copied, so becomes the ‘seed’ for multi-cellular organism, for you, carried as your sex cells.

Of course you are poor and broke, for you carry the past with you – “a very old female statue broken in half, but the break occurred a long time ago.” Yes, a long time ago you broke yourself and you are trying to heal that break now. See https://dreamhawk.com/interesting-people/the-awful-pain-of-loss/

The garden is the garden we are born to care for – the garden of your soul. You have grown a great deal, but there is still work to do – don’t we all!

Omega – I believe you have released what I have named LifeStream through your growth. It is a part of present evolutionary steps.

The thing most people never realise is that the greatest and deepest parts of us are all spontaneous, and when we experience such things ourselves we often suffer great anxiety. So your heart beat, your digestion and all the millions of interactions between internal organs, glands, are all spontaneous, as was your growth in your mother’s womb, and your continued existence. Our personality, our ego, is a tiny fragile thing, but the Life force what was behind your existence, tries where possible to gradually expose you to more of Itself.

To quote from Dreams and Nightmares by Dr. Hadfield, ‘There is in the psyche an automatic movement toward readjustment, towards an equilibrium, toward a restoration of the balance of our personality. This automatic adaptation of the organism is one of the main functions of the dream as indeed it is of bodily functions and of the personality as a whole. This idea need not cause us much concern for this automatic self-regulating process is a well known phenomenon in Physics and Physiology. The function of compensation which Jung has emphasised appears to be one of the means by which this automatic adaptation takes place, for the expression of repressed tendencies has the effect of getting rid of conflict in the personality. For the time being, it is true, the release may make the conflict more acute as the repressed emotions emerge, and we have violent dreams from which we wake with a start. But by this means, the balance of our personality is restored.’
As for how we can enable this to happen, Jung’s student Marie von Franz says that we ‘must get rid of purposive and wishful aims. The ego must be able to listen.’ Jung also encouraged his clients to allow spontaneous movement. Quoting from my book Mind and Movement Jung says, “In most cases the results of these efforts are not very encouraging at first. Moreover, the way of getting at the fantasies is individually different… oftentimes the hands alone can fantasy; they model or draw figures that are quite foreign to the conscious.

“These exercises must be continued until the cramp in the conscious is released, or, in other words, until one can let things happen; which was the immediate goal of the exercise.”

It is all explained in https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/lifes-little-secrets/
