Dream Interpretation / Re: High frequency
« Last post by Tony Crisp on Yesterday at 12:11:18 PM »
Yoma – Thanks for saying that, it makes it clearer to me.

Perhaps I have said these things before, but to make it plain I will repeat some things. So I feel that it is your inner brother you need to deal with - When you think about a lover, a brother 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 the experiences change you and make you the person you are. The memories and experience we gather unconsciously 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 the way you live your life.

As an example of dealing with such feelings; because my grandmother had been my prime carer, and had died before I had reached the age of two, I had already experienced great loss. This had left me open to the fear of abandonment. At three my mother without warning put me in a convalescent hospital, being at the hospital released this terror that I had been abandoned.

Meeting that terror again in my late 40s was almost more than I could bear.  although the feeling was originally connected with my mother, as usually happens, whoever we love becomes the target for such fears. In meeting these awful feelings, I traced the origin of them back to the events mentioned. But the terrific anger I felt to my mother at exposing me to such unbearable emotions, also spilled over onto my wife. I tried to forgive my mother but the anger did not abate and it became obvious that unless I could forgive my mother, I would ruin my marriage with that anger.

It was difficult to find this forgiveness because I felt that what my mother had done was unforgivable. Of course none of this was neatly rational. The feelings were burning beyond reason, and could not be rationalised away. But I could not ignore the fact that this was not, in the end, about my mother, but about me. My continued anger was ruining my life. So for my own sake I had to sincerely forgive my mother. This was not a fast change, and it was not easy. But it did release me from the crippling effects of the anger. And some effects of non-forgiveness in these situations are quite subtle.

I found that admitting that it was my own inner mother/brother that was doing the damage was the first step in dealing with it. The next step was to love and not to hate and try to kill my mother/brother. This was helped by the realisation that it was myself – a real and powerful aspect of myself I was dealing with that was causing my inner turmoil.

Love and forgiveness is the same thing. If we can love yourself it opens the door to love other people, because loving yourself means accepting and loving the very ordinary, the very wonderful, the very awful, and that covers all men and women. Also it means you stop judging other people, and most important judging yourself. For when I finally forgave my mother/brother/myself, I saw with open mouthed wonder that because I had judged and condemned my mother/brother, I had been an awful judge on myself. That was a real smack in the face and an awakening that freed me.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Luke 6:37

Thank you very much for your feedback,i really needed it to confirm my intuition. And you were right on spot,he's not dead but i told myself many times that i wouldnt give a damn if he would die someday soon. Its not like im eager for him to die, but i feel caged because of his attitude and actions. He brought much suffering to my parents and that situation hurts me badly. I had a very very hard time because of him last year around this day. I mutilated myself by smoking drugs on a daily basis just to run away from the real factor. Its been an year now since i gave up that behaviour and i feel really blessed for stopping my daily mutilation. But there are scaras i cant accept. And i know thats what this dream means for me. Somehow i cant forgive myself for letting myself wither. And i know that my own weakness, thats him (my brother), lead me to these emotions. Its been really  hard...and i dont know how to fight these emotions. That divine part in the dream felt like reaching a higher underatanding of who i am, but that doesent change the fact that his actions dont depend on me. I just wish i had the strenght to pet that black dog and tell him its okay...and that im sorry for how i feel towards him.

Yoma – I would like a bit more information; is your brother actually dead or did you dream his death?

However, here is my best impression of your dream with the feeling your brother is not actually dead. It is not unusual to wish a sibling is dead and so out of your life.

“I hated my brother. When he died, all I felt was happiness: It's a rarely admitted truth but some siblings loathe each other.”

So it may be that you have tried ‘killing your brother inside you’, because that is what it sounds like from your dream. It also seems that you tried the so called ‘spiritual path’ which is very one-sided.

Example: Quite soon afterwards, still dreaming, the sound of a door creaking open made me sit up. Then from behind me two black men who looked as if they had risen out of a grave with flesh peeling off them approached me. I quickly made the sign of the cross and said some holy words and the figures disappeared. I lay back again thinking it was a good thing I knew how to get rid of them. But as soon as I settled to sleep again the door creaked open and the two figures appeared once more. This time all my hand waving and holy words had no effect on their advance, and their hands closed around my throat and I woke screaming in terror. My wife, feeling my fear, got up and we switched on all the lights.
 
That was my own experience and it taught me that taking the ‘holy road’ does not take into account that we are all dual in nature and the dark side needs to be integrated for things to work.

Anything inside you that you repress, as you and I were trying to do by trying to get rid of your feelings about your brother, and me by trying to stop my inner zombies which I had literally put in the grave until they were rotten with flesh peeling off them, does not does not die, it simply creates a terrible smell that you have to live with.

There should be no force or conflict involved – with your inner brother or emotions. If you give up your efforts to 'get rid' of your brother, gradually you will see that your way of dealing with, or responding to, difficult emotions, fears and stressful events, is changing. You feel more able to meet difficulties, allowing you to grow as a person, and be more creative. Of course it took me years to understand that and see the results. If you stop trying to repress such feelings by ‘holy’ them away an inner and effortless growth will appear.

For ripe fruit just drops off the trees, it doesn’t make any difference voicing holy word, for Life in nature is the greatest ripener.

Hello Tony!
It's been a while since i last time wrote you. I know dreams are just projections of our subcons mind and usually i could find meaning for myself in evey dream but this time i had a very disturbing one and i woke up really sad and troubled...and i kind of know what it means for me but i need an opinion from some1 with more experience than my intuition. Ill start from where i can remember the most.

I dont know how my problematic brother died but he came back to life immediately in a zombie state. The scene started like this: he stood in our common bed while i was up-standing near the door and lookin at him decaying. When our eyes met and i saw his deadly look,i kind of panicked and tried to look at the window and see the beauty of nature but a small religious icon took my eyes and somehow forced me to push myself to look into my brother's decaying eyes. At that moment i felt like i had a deep divination-kind-of-thing. Our bodies and minds swapped and i started chanting a throat mantra for his rotten soul. Some kind of diety awoken inside of my while my brother was so angry and JEALOUS. Thats what i felt from him: hatred and jealousy,because i became able to chant a divine mantra that helped rotten souls find peace and he didnt wanna leave the living world. He then turned into a black dog with demonic powers and started biting my left hand,without any success. I casted him away and went outside to my nature,to discover my throat singing. I kept on practicing until i could chant it with only my mind,and the whole world around me could hear and feel the divine vibrations. It felt like i reached a higher self. Thats the moment i saw my decaying,(literally and methaphorically) brother arguing with our father on the balcony and turned into a black dog and started to molest our father from behind in such a disgusting way. The dream ended with me going to him into a rush and as my fist was reaching his devilish mouth (he had such a satisfied expression,like he knew that would hurt me greatly. It was really distrubing,feelig all that hate) he kind of pushed me back out of my dream and woke up crying my soul out. And that throat mantra kept ringing into my ears and i realized that my roomate's soft snores sounded like 100 buddhist trying to chant it together....i felt a bit paralyzed.

Dream Interpretation / Re: A Woman Put Evil Words On Me
« Last post by Tony Crisp on May 13, 2019, 09:49:50 AM »
G.P. - I have met such people and have dealt with them. They know nothing about the Holy Spirit but are people troubled by great fears. To deal with such fears they tend to listen to the voice of their fears and try to spread such fears to others. The Devil spelt backwards is Lived - which is exactly what demons and the devil are - the person's own life energy turned against themselves because of their awful beliefs.

The devil or demon in our dreams usually represents the parts of our own urges and emotions we have repressed or do not feel in control of. The angers, fears or urges may even feel to us as if they are strong enough to control us, so we represent them as an external force pushing us to some sort of evil. In each of us there is also the potential for creativity or destruction. This is especially noticeable in connection with our fears, such as fear of illness. Such a fear, if based on imagination rather than a real cause, can still cause illness. In this sense our own mind can turn against us. The energy of our own undirected fear may be pictured as the devil or an evil entity.

Recently I sat with a woman, Beth, while she explored her usually unconscious feelings and beliefs. Our unconscious dream action often portrays such inner feelings as an object or person, and in her exploration Beth met the Devil. When we dared to face and closely look at this image of evil, what she discovered was that her ancestors had lived in times of great persecution. Being people who had questioning minds, they wondered whether the persecution was in fact justified. Maybe there was something about them that was inferior and detestable. Those self doubts, and the negative feelings that arose from them, created an open door for what has been called the Devil – destructive emotions and urges, negative comparisons, and feelings of being an outsider. Once this is understood it is easy to see other things that leave a door open for evil to enter. They are childhood trauma or abuse, the attitudes and standards we often pick up – rather like infections – from others around us, and the cultural attitudes we live amidst. When this ‘devil’ enters us it can lead to self criticism, the denial of ones own talents and ‘light’, and in bad cases, crime, murder and the infliction of child abuse and trauma.

Example: Devil Snivel Havel – They are just words to describe human fears, fears put into us by a church thousands of years ago speaking of things it only had primitive words to describe what it saw. I have met the devil myself several times, sometimes in great fear, and then slowly in wonder and direct insight. In such meetings I saw and realise that devil was lived spelt backwards. In other word it is the Light we are all born with that through fear or ignorance we have turned back on ourselves. In doing so we have created great chunks of negative stuff blocking the light causing depression, suicidal impulses, and all the many human pains and suffering. But it is not some evil person ‘doing it to us’ it is our own misguided actions that can be undone by understanding them.

Dream Interpretation / A Woman Put Evil Words On Me
« Last post by Tony Crisp on May 13, 2019, 09:44:06 AM »
Wanted to share this with you. I was called out by someone on FB last week. It upset me terribly. This lady claims to be a seer and fought demons in the spirit realm. She knows nothing about me. Only that Holy Spirit has told her I was a witch. I know I have been one in my past life and in the new life I have been trying to fix karma and do good for others. I promote love and support all of Gods creatures. This woman just wants to put me down for offending a gay couple that she posted on her page. Her followers were shaming them and saying they are abomination etc. I cannot accept that people feel that God would treat his own by punishing them.

Mikey – Carrying on from Anna’s reply:

Being killed: An interior or exterior influence which you feel is ‘killing’ – undermining, making ineffective, strangling, choking – ones self confidence, or sense of identity.
Killing: Repressing or stopping some aspect of oneself – as when we kill our love for someone.
Killing animals: This shows you killing urges or needs you have that are natural and instinctive. Mostly this is injurious to your wholeness, but occasionally needs to be done to deal with special life situations. The killing might also point to feelings of pain and conflict, as when we kill out something in us that is natural or even beautiful; like when we trained to be nice to everyone even though our instinctive reaction is to avoid them. The same applies to reasonable anger.  See: family and relationships; animals.

Useful Questions and Hints:
Considering that each person dreamt of is usually and aspect of oneself, what was being killed?
Did you feel a connection with the death or feel guilty?
How did you react to the killing?

Being whole means you have integrated and come to terms with every aspect of who you are. You have met within you the murderer, the saint, the swindler and the honest trader, the sexual pervert and the straight married person, the homosexual and the heterosexual, the darker and the light filled should find a balance in each individual.

This balance is like a razors edge in which any one-sidedness would lead to imbalance within you. But at the same time it is not about being perfect or a saint, but a balanced and whole human being with very wide choices; for accepting the opposites brings balance.

Hi Mikey  :)

What I see in your dream is that as a young child you may have not been aware of your feelings of playfulness & simple joy of just being, being "killed" many times in whatever way.

However, now you are able to have a first look at it, which is a great step in the direction of letting go of a pattern which you still may be repeating inside yourself.

Just continue to observe/be aware, the way you do in your dream, as you are on the right path!

Good Luck!

Dream Interpretation / Many foals
« Last post by mikey on May 10, 2019, 10:38:54 PM »
Hi everyone,
I had this dream the other night, need a little help.
I am enjoying watching hundreds of foals jumping & frolicking around in a meadow, it fills me with great joy at their child like innocence, playfulness & simple joy of just being, I become aware that they are all about to be led into an abattoir to be slaughtered, I remember thinking they have no idea what is about to happen,
This dream has made me feel dreadful, I am not sure what brought it about.
I have just started reading a book called letting go, the pathway to surrender, but not sure if the contents read so far would bring about such a dream,
One thing that came to mind was the bliss of ignorance or the angst of enlightenment ,this may have been reflected in the images,
Look forward to any thoughts.
Reg’s to you all,
Mikey

General Discussion / Have You Faced Your Own Fears?
« Last post by Tony Crisp on May 08, 2019, 10:09:32 AM »
Fears are a natural reaction to certain things, and they can become habits and can play over and over with no real cause. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/-%20http:/dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Victim

Also remember that dreams are a very different world than waking life, and in fact even if you experience a dream of great terror nothing can hurt you. But of course you may wake feeling the same terror, yet nothing has actually hurt you, you are merely facing your own feelings of fear. In fact dreams are like a computer game with a very real virtual reality – you can be killed a hundred times but the game/dream does you no harm.

Example: I had dreamt my wife and I had been talking about whether there were any ghosts in the house. On going to bed I sat in bed and challenged any ghosts to show themselves, certain I could handle them. There was no response, and feeling rather smug I lay down to go to sleep. Just then the door creaked open, and in walked two black men who looked as if they had climbed out of an old grave. Their flesh was falling off them and they were blank eyed. I was terrified and made the sign of the cross and said a few holy words to ward them off. It worked and they went, but not for long. This time all my signs and prayers didn’t get rid of them and they put their dead hands around my throat strangling me. I woke screaming and frightened.

What I gathered from these dreams was that originally I had repressed parts of my own natural sexual feelings, shown as the black men. They were dead because I had killed this part of myself as a teenager. But I was deeply frightened of these sexual urges because of what had happened in adolescence. So I never had such a dream again.

I found that to get rid of the fear I had to face what it was about instead of running from it as if it would kill me. Simon, as a human being you are not simply a creature that responds automatically to your environment. Even intelligent animals such as chimpanzees and foxes do not simply responded to their environment instinctively. They learn certain types of behaviour from their parents, from experience, and from their fellow animals. They, like us, are capable of learning. Our own relationship with parents, other human beings and animals during infancy, passes on to us an enormous amount of information through our ability to copy behaviour, through word of mouth, through our own experience, and through reading or viewing.

So, many of us have awful images or sense of fear haunting us from being passed on. See The Conjuring Trick It might help to use Secrets of Power Dreaming –  The following is a quote from the National Health Website.

Whatever it is that scares you, here are 10 ways to help you cope with your fear and anxiety:
1. Take time out
It feels impossible to think clearly when you’re flooded with fear or anxiety. A racing heart, sweating palms and feeling panicky and confused are the result of adrenalin. So, the first thing to do is take time out so you can physically calm down.

Distract yourself from the worry for 15 minutes by walking around the block, making a cup of tea or having a bath. When you’ve physically calmed down, you’ll feel better able to decide on the best way to cope.

2. What’s the worst that can happen?
When you’re anxious about something, be it work, a relationship or an exam, it can help to think through what the worst end result could be. Even if a presentation, a call or a conversation goes horribly wrong, chances are that you and the world will survive. Sometimes the worst that can happen is a panic attack. If you start to get a faster heartbeat or sweating palms, the best thing is not to fight it. Stay where you are and simply feel the panic without trying to distract yourself. Placing the palm of your hand on your stomach and breathing slowly and deeply (no more than 12 breaths a minute) helps soothe the body. It may take up to an hour, but eventually the panic will go away on its own. The goal is to help the mind get used to coping with panic, which takes the fear of fear away.

3. Expose yourself to the fear
Avoiding fears only makes them scarier. If you panic one day getting into a lift, it’s best to get back into a lift the next day. Stand in the lift and feel the fear until it goes away. Whatever your fear, if you face it, it should start to fade.

4. Welcome the worst
Each time fears are embraced, it makes them easier to cope with the next time they strike, until in the end they are no longer a problem. Try imagining the worst thing that can happen – perhaps it’s panicking and having a heart attack. Then try to think yourself into having a heart attack. It’s just not possible. The fear will run away the more you chase it.

5. Get real
Fears tend to be much worse than reality. Often, people who have been attacked can’t help thinking they’re going to be attacked again every time they walk down a dark alley. But the chance that an attack will happen again is actually very low. Similarly, people sometimes tell themselves they’re a failure because they blush when they feel self-conscious. This then makes them more upset. But blushing in stressful situations is normal. By remembering this, the anxiety goes away.

6. Don’t expect perfection
Black-and-white perfectionist thinking such as, “If I’m not the best mum in the world, I’m a failure,” or, “My DVDs aren’t all facing in the same direction, so my life is a mess,” are unrealistic and only set us up for anxiety. Life is full of stresses, yet many of us feel that our lives must be perfect. Bad days and setbacks will always happen, and it’s essential to remember that life is messy.

You can use your inner strength to clear what blocks you, you are often confronted by two choices – to go up or down – the good or the bad – what you want and what others want – the rules and law of the land and what we ourselves want. This is like an either/or thing – you can go up or down. But dreams have a lot of tricks or talents that we usually forget we have because you can do both. In fact our body or being does everything at once. For instance our body is constantly dying and creating new life.

It is important to realise that you have enormous range of choices, but it is often best to swing backwards and forwards between the opposites to find where you feel balanced. It might help with this by using – Secrets of Power Dreaming

7. Visualise
Take a moment to close your eyes and imagine a place of safety and calm: it could be a picture of you walking on a beautiful beach, or snuggled up in bed with the cat next to you or a happy memory from childhood. Let the positive feelings soothe you until you feel more relaxed.

8. Talk about it
Sharing fears takes away a lot of their scariness. If you can’t talk to a partner, friend or family member, call a helpline such as the Samaritans (08457 90 90 90, open 24 hours a day). And if your fears aren’t going away, ask your GP for help. GPs can refer people for counselling, psychotherapy or online help through a new online service called FearFighter.

9. Go back to basics
A good sleep, a wholesome meal and a walk are often the best cures for anxiety. The easiest way to fall asleep when worries are spiralling through the mind can be to stop trying to nod off. Instead, try to stay awake. Many people turn to alcohol or drugs to self-treat anxiety, with the idea that it will make them feel better, but these only make nervousness worse. On the other hand, eating well will make you feel great physically and mentally.

10. Reward yourself
Finally, give yourself a treat. When you’ve picked up that spider or made that call you’ve been dreading, reinforce your success by treating yourself to a candlelit bath, a massage, a country walk, a concert, a meal out, a book, a DVD or whatever little gift makes you happy.
