Dream Interpretation / Humans are popcorn
« Last post by mikey on July 25, 2021, 09:17:01 AM »
Hi toni,hope you are keeping safe,saw you on u tube ,nice to put a face to the voice.
I had a follow on dream from my mass extinction post,
The dream,
I am met by the aliens from my previously posted dream,the ones who said they were going to wipe out humankind,
I ask them in this latest dream,why are they going to do this,the answer was not what I expected,
They show me a vision,a large metal pot on a campfire,in it some corn/maize it starts to pop ,filling up the pot to such an extent that it over flows taking the lid off.as making popcorn does,
I thought this was a very interesting metaphor,cornucopia of potential
Perhaps in my case,the light will come in the darkest moment,
As always I would love any comments
Regards mikey.

Dream Interpretation / Terrorgroup in town
« Last post by ToBeAware on July 22, 2021, 04:26:22 PM »
Some morning ago i dreamt this

I was walking in the center of my town, behind a corner i see a long weapon, I turn to take another way. There just after turning I see all corners occupied with a terrorist with kalaschnikov, I did pass one but could feel my stressed appearing made harm, I did look inside stores to find if I could walk in and flee. I was then back to where I saw the pattern of them all, and I didnt know where to go to find my way away from this situation in the town.

And this is a sad reflectation over what I feel for the Talibans in Afghanistan, for what terrorist has managed to do with me, after happenings the past years, and how I feel som people live in their daily life, this is not how earth is meant to be.

Hi Romanov,

Your dream reminds me of Hexagram 9 of the I Ching;

Quote
Gentle Restraint"

Winds of change
high in the Heavens:
Air currents
carry the weather.
Dense clouds
blow in from the west,
but still no rain.


https://www.ichingonline.net/

Or, as Tony has put it:

Quote
https://dreamhawk.com/i-ching/hexagram-nine/

Hesitate from grand action and watch for change coming from an ending, or from within. There is no great good and no great bad in this enquiry, but it could be a time in which to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

If things have already entered into misfortune however, there is no power here to quickly pull out. Nevertheless the winds of change are blowing, so be patient until the time comes to make a shift. The winds of change do not blow strongly enough to quickly alter your position.

A great deal of creative power is shown, but because of the situation, there is nothing for it to grasp and work with. This is why only small changes can be made until shifts bring new and different opportunities.

Quote
I am sitting in the smaller circle on a stool, with my gardening tools in a pot beside me, looking up.

Perhaps it is time to give yourself a break in wanting to move out of a situation you have found yourself in?

Anna :)

Dream Interpretation / Circle within a circle
« Last post by Romanov on July 16, 2021, 07:45:02 PM »
Hi Tony,

Hope you are doing great.  Touching base after a long time.

Lately I have been devoting time to container gardening as I live in an apartment. A lot of dreams I am having for the last few months tend to pick symbols from this hobby. This is one such dream too. Also I am going through some tough circumstances on a different front and was angry with Almighty, during the prayer and before I went to sleep and had this dream. I was angry that I was not being heard, my prayers not being answered and he is not giving me a break.

The dream;
There is a small circle within a big circle. Both circles are full of soil and dark compost, like it has just been spread. The boundary of the circle seems like a black biodegradable material used these days to do container gardening. I am sitting in the smaller circle on a stool, with my gardening tools in a pot beside me, looking up.

The spread of compost is very neat and even.

After I woke up I thought, maybe I was looking up expecting rain!

Feeling frustrated at this end. Please help interpret.

Best regards
Romanov

Dream Interpretation / Re: Missed Shot - Frustration
« Last post by Tony Crisp on May 17, 2021, 10:52:32 AM »
Carina - Recurring dreams are produced because fundamental to our dream process is the life action of self regulation - the attempt to heal a problem.

One woman wrote to me that she dreamt the same dream from childhood. She was walking past railings in the town she lived in as a child. She always woke in dread and perspiration from this dream. At forty she told her sister about it. The response was, ‘Oh, that’s simple. Don’t you remember that when you were about four we were walking past those railings and we were set on by a bunch of boys. Then I said to them, ‘Don’t hurt us our mother’s dead!’ They left us alone, but you should have seen the look on your face.’ After realising the dread was connected with the threatened loss of her mother, the dream never recurred. 

So what is your dream trying to tell you? I believe it may be because 'someone is in your way is 'stopping you from expressing your power fully'. I don't have any brothers and sisters who often do this to you. but mothers and fathers can also stand in your way.

We tend to think and feel that it is only if we have been beaten and knocked about that we have huge life problems. Here is part of my discovering how wrong that is.

I had dreamt that my left bicep was damaged. The damage to the bicep, to the flesh was the whole area of my life that I was trying to save and heal, but which I needed to let go of, and wait for the new muscle tissue to grow. How does start again in ones 40's? Is it with patience to let the new tissues and strength grow?

My left arm is my support system, my confidence to do things in the world. I am right handed so do things with my right hand, but support everything with my left – hold the paper as I write; hold the nail as I bang it in with my right. So, the damage to the muscle was the injury to my supportive confidence which I saw as I explored the dream, that arose through my relationship with my father. As all this was felt I sobbed uncontrollably. I wept for the lost years, the wasted years of my youth. I was convulsed with the pain of not having been loved by my father. Tears fell from me for the failure of my life. I would never have believed one could feel so much pain about something missing in one's life. I had always thought to feel that much pain you would have needed to be beaten or abused in childhood. My father was kind, but he showed no warmth. And that was as bad as being beaten, perhaps worse. I had been severely beaten at school, but it hadn’t scarred me like this.

So who is the man in your way of really expressing yourself? Try using the methods explained in https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/peer-dream-work/

Dream Interpretation / Missed Shot - Frustration
« Last post by Tony Crisp on May 14, 2021, 02:06:32 PM »
Hello Tony, How are you? I Have noticed a recurring dream since 2018 i Have had 6 dreams of below theme. Any insight on I can come to insight would be wonderful Thank you: My dream: I cannot tee off (golf). I am standing on tee number 9 at a particular hole i am familiar with, my guy opponent hits his drive perfectly, even makes a bounce on a hill & pushes the ball another 100yds almost into the green! When its my turn there is always someone in my way which makes it impossible for me to hit. I move my ball & tee it up, but then my practice swing feels like an amateur as if i wont hit the ball? Again people who don't know about golf is in my way. By now I'm so frustrated!!! I'm aware that I'm taking too long!! (Fear of penalty?) I never got to hit the ball. Carina

Eti- The word telepathy was thought up because at that time they had no real sense of how it could happen. Unfortunately it is still use as is out of body experiences.

Once the awareness is independent of the body, as in sleep, the boundaries of time and space as they are known in the body do not exist. One can easily pass through walls, fly, travel to or immediately be in a far distant place, witnessing what may be, or appears to be, physically real there. We lived through a period where we saw only our physical structure which will be wiped out at death. Now science has seen that we are each fundamentally quantum – energy – and from this view they cannot find death. Ancient people saw the same thing and gave different words to describe it.

Jung and others see individual human consciousness like an island in a huge ocean in which there are countless other islands. Above the surface of the water, which is like individual waking self-awareness; in that state there is a sense of separate existence, with definite boundaries where the shore meets the sea. Beneath the surface however, one island is connected to all other islands. The land stretches away under the waves and rises here and there into other islands. So, it is thought, personal awareness, beneath our everyday consciousness, shades off into a connection with a collective unconscious we all share. Through this connection we may be able to arrive at insights into other people otherwise denied to us.

Your dream - When you stay in a hotel you temporarily transfer your feelings about territory to the room you hire. But you know it is only temporary, and so dream hotels often link with a situation you are in that will not last long, or that you are moving through. This may be in connection with work or relationships, or even the way you feel, depending on what else is in the dream. It seems you have deep in you the desire to find a companion, but the dream put the drama in a temporary relationship.

Looking out of a window and seeing rain, you are looking at the world outside you and the ran can mean you can experience strong emotions. In fact you wonder why people do not buy raincoats, which in dreams represent the attitudes we use to deal with difficult emotions or events. You dream suggests you see this applying to other people not you; a simple psychological way to prevent us from seeing the truth about ourselves.

Whether we remember or not, each time we sleep we create an apparently real world out of our remembered impressions, habits and emotions. As the stage managers of our inner theatres, we have the most abundant props, costumes and backdrops imaginable. Yet, because a dream is our own creation, no part of it, no emotion contained in it, no flight of fancy portrayed, is other than oneself. Even when we dream vividly of another person, such as the man in our life, the dream personality is made up of our own impressions, memories of them, hopes and feelings. Most people are often totally unaware of the experience they take in and how it interacts with them when we live with someone.

So your dreams are a magic mirror that reflects nothing but your own beliefs, worries, fears, wisdom and even genius. To do this it creates characters, situations and drama that are all  reflections of your own inner world. All the images and drama, along with the emotions you feel are simply you looking at yourself. Most of it we do not recognise because we are so blind to our failings and of course our wonder.

Your friend shows you the man riding away - what do you think that suggests. Well the first part of the dream suggests it is a temporary thing. So ask for a dream showing how you can  form a more permanent relationship.

Questions about dreams / Why Am I Stuck In Life
« Last post by Tony Crisp on April 19, 2021, 09:57:03 AM »
How do we get stuck in life – unable to move or grow?

Many of us get stuck in life situations from which we may never emerge. The situation might be one of never establishing a full and satisfying sexual relationship; constantly feeling hurt by the actions of others; existing in a state of depression or anxiety; forever having to seek activity or company to deal with ones own inner emptiness; experiencing enormous jealousy or anxiety in a relationship – the list could be endless.

Orthodox medicine, recognising how difficult it is to help people move from such mental emotional prisons has turned to chemical attempts to shift the person’s inner state. Overall this sometimes seems to aid, but is not a universal answer to the human condition. There is however a self help path we can take that can radically change such situations. The first step is to recognise how we personally hold such inner conditions in place. Maybe we might even ask the question as to why we maintain such an awful relationship with life. The answer to that question might very well reveal the most powerful process that freezes us in our difficulty.

Example: I had an insight that I had got into a negative feedback loop. Because I had got stuck in this place, then I feared I was stuck there in reality, which produced the certainty I was stuck, which produced the inability to move out. We feed back to ourselves images of failure and feelings of unattractiveness, and all the other negative feelings we all meet during the week. Instead of looking at them and seeing them as passing feelings, we take them as impressions of reality and drown in them. We accept them as true and start to live them. When that happens we see conformation for the negatives, and so it goes on.

I tried to find the way out of the loop. The only way out I could find was the realisation that the loop has no end, like the figure eight. There is only one thing to do, stop it playing. Grab it and stop the crazy record or habit carrying on.

To help with this, to help grab the thing and kill it, we obviously have to realise it is untrue. If we still believe the loop to be playing a truth, then we only strengthen the action. So for its cessation we need to realise that our sense of self is a constantly moving fragile thing that has no stable reality. We aren’t ANYTHING – stable, so how can we be a failure, or a success, or great, or of no account, or any thought or feeling? No thought or feeling represents our reality. No feeling, or sense of ourselves, is anything more than a sense, a feeling, it is not us. So how could this feeling represent some sort of permanent personal reality?

You are building a hell for yourself by your beliefs, and thoughts. You need to recognise the power of these thoughts and in recognising them, say to your self, “I have taken this path of thoughts so many times and it always leads to the same place – emotional pain and turmoil – so why do I keep pushing this crazy button over and over”?

Example: I suffered torment for years, messing up my life, until a dream showed me what I had been doing. I had thought the pain and misery was from some earlier trauma but could not find one. And the dream showed me that it wasn’t a trauma but cultural programming that said that I was a bad father and also a bad husband, both true from a certain viewpoint.

The view that I was shown by the dream was that my pain was from habits created by the culture I grew up in. I realised that I could create a new life by changing the habits of a lifetime. But every time I left the house and my children the old habits started tearing me apart again. I stopped just outside the door and looked at the awful feelings. I had tried positive thinking and that didn’t work. What I saw and reminded myself was that I had gone down that road a thousand times and it always led to self-destruction. So by seeing that I decided to change the habit and reminding myself, not that I was a wonderful person, but that I was a human man, who did not want to make his wife suffer from my awful moods, and also I saw from the dream that we are always free to go in any direction, and that sense of freedom enabled me to start a new life.

It didn’t happen suddenly, but each day it got easier because I knew the attitudes and feeling that led to my misery and so tried another life direction. The direction was the recognition that my state of mind led me to self-destruction every time it took that road and that resolved me to change outside the door.

The tremendous meaning and possibilities of that are amazing. Through the manipulation or observance of our own images, we can discover, trace, change our own innermost processes. See https://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/#Opening

See Conditioned Reflexes or Responses

A Great Power is Self Justification.
I recently asked a man who had experienced enormous pain through, as he felt, being misused by a woman friend. When I pointed out that this was the woman’s normal behaviour that he himself had described to me, so why was he hurt by it, he said that she should have been more caring for his feelings.

I then asked him if perhaps he was asking her to act like an adult while he maintained the emotional level of response normal in childhood – namely blaming someone else for his hurt. In response he again justified himself by saying that it was normal to feel hurt from such an action.

Such justifications, and the statement that it is normal to feel pain in love, at the death of someone close, at the twisting and turning of life events, or because of the unthinking remarks of someone, are the chains that bind us to that misery.

Carl Jung wrote, “If we could fully meet our shadow, we would be immune to any moral or verbal insinuations. We would already have seen this for ourselves.”

To meet our shadow – to acknowledge our own follies – to see our own childish behaviour – we need to be self aware. Of course that path is not for the weak hearted. It means to stop the continual justification of why we feel and respond in the way we do, and instead, to pull back what we hide from ourselves to reveal the underlying causes of our responses and behaviour. It lies in taking ourselves by the scruff of the neck and perhaps saying, “I am still responding to this as if I am a three year old. Come on, time to grow up, and stop justifying myself for feeling angry, jealous, afraid, and ill.”

Growth is an innate urge in us. If we stop holding it back we will emerge from childhood and our countless justifications. See Avoid Being Victims – Martial Art of the Mind – Water Wonderland – A Way Through – Meeting yourself see them by pasting each heading in the search box in Dreamhawk.

Dream Interpretation / Re: The Party Wasn't On Yet

Hi Tony,

Yes, exactly. The encounter with this man left me very disappointed since I had different expectations. I almost feel tricked.

I always thought messages are telepathic exchanges between individuals, seems I was wrong.

Can't wait to see the interpretation of this dream.

Thank you! - Eti

Over a month after things ended with this man:

I was in the Marriott hotel with him in a room and we were flirting, being silly and something tells me also intimate even though the scene was not about that. We both were looking out the window and heavy rain started, we saw pupils running away from the rain. I asked him why they don't buy rain coats.

Later on I see us walking around with a very good friend of mine (in real life, but they don't know each other) and the guy showed me the Marriott Spa. I thought maybe he wants us to go there together. Abruptly I see him riding away with his bike. My friend told me that he had to leave since he was scared his bike would get stolen and that he would be back. I was thinking to myself that he would text me in the evening. My friend also told me that he had an interesting question for her: If she had ever met any of my ex boyfriends. That seemed to show that he felt more for me.

This is an interesting dream because the first part is sort of remembering what happened (us being flirty, him leaving and i haven't heard from him since).
