Dream Interpretation / Dreaming of dreading becoming a Pilot
« Last post by Aristocrates on March 13, 2021, 11:31:41 AM »
I did back out of the Air Force but I wasn't going in to be a pilot.  There's also a younger coworker who is working on getting his pilot's license and various certifications.   Those are waking life experiences.  In the dream I'm in a computer lab with several people and I know I should be alone to take this pilot's exam and that all these people are going to be a distraction. I'm also asking myself why am I in the process of becoming a fighter pilot.  It's such a dangerous occupation and I've never been passionate about flying airplanes.  The dread begins to compound.

Dream Interpretation / Re: I Don't Want to Hope

M - The tree is your life as it unfolds - with all its strengths and weaknesses. It is certainly stability - luck in love? To see that you have been looking at trash because people make up things without experiencing them. Love is a word thrown about to get people feel their need for love - it is not the meaning of tree.

The dream shows you at the top of the tree - the point of growth, but also the point of tenderness because the new growth can be your highest self but it can be torn apart because it hasn't hardened. Your dream shows this as your uncertainty.

The guide is shown at the foot of  the tree in the dark showing that he has no experience of your growth, has not been able to climb the tree, meanning he has no experience of your inner personal growth and your urge to grow.

Your dream is your truth, shown as the guide who is insecure. After my searching for external help from many guides for 50 years, I found that the greatest guide who knows every part of you from babyhood through teenage, and on through your future is within you. That is what I was trying to help you find, the inner energy of your personal highest self. For within each of us lies a radiance that enriches us if we can meet it. This radiance, from its vastness using things we might understand, says that we too must reach beyond our often pitiful understanding to move toward and touch the wonder of Life within us.

As for hope - T. S Elliot sees the truth of that: 

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.

Dream Interpretation / I Don't Want to Hope

I have lots of dreams with the guide. He gives me mixed signals saying that now he is not ready and feels insecure about himself but I see how he looks at me. I don't want to hope for something which will be futile anyway, maybe I do project something onto him and he knows that's the part of ayahuasca integration and he is scared to be involved? So my dream was quite strange.

I was on the top of the tree. He was close to the trunk in the dark and I tried to reach him. I tried to be a tree as one of your techniques advice and i felt it may mean stability. But I also checked the meaning and it also may mean luck in love.... M.

Andrew - I cannot see this dream needs interpretation; instead it needs education.

Dreams are the greatest of virtual realities. Remember that dreams are just like computer games in which you get very involved and face monsters and kill or be killed and nothing has actually happened – you are still alive and unhurt. But that is exactly what this wonderfully alive virtual reality of your dreams is, for we are all playing the game of life – the game we play in which we face or run away from the things that scare us; in which we explore the depths of our existence, develop the speed of our reactions or learn how to love – or simply meet a reflection of our own weakness, terror and of course the wonder of your inner genius. For that is all it is – a magic mirror in which we see ourselves naked of pretense.

So it seems you are still seeing your dream as if it were real life in which you need revolvers to hold people  off. But while we dream we have entered another dimension in which we are shape shifters, or bodiless awareness or any dam thing we wish. Remember the image or even your body is not you. So you could put down your guns and let the police rush and grab you - but you could be like a ghost image where their hands pass through you. Or here is a good one, let them pull a hand or arm off - and produce lots of blood to see what their reaction is - meanwhile you are still whole for you can create a new image of yourself.

Example:  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. 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. So I simple created another image of my body.

Example: Facing my adversary and becoming lucid in the dream, I allowed the adversary to kill me with a sword, knowing all the while that absolutely no harm could come from this experience. Fully lucid and looking at my dream attacker I said: “You can plunge the sword through me if you wish,” whereupon my adversary did just that. Then I drew the sword out of my dream body and very lovingly and wisely gave it back to the adversary and said: “Thank you.”

All it takes is practice. Do it by imagining it,

Dream Interpretation / Between a Rock and a Hard Place

I dreamt that my life was fine, no problems and then suddenly a group of police and schemers had put a large number of crime cases online  suggesting that I had committed them.

I was shocked and wondered why these people would want to do that to me. So I was taken to court and the judge, who had the cases in front of him said that he could do nothing but pass judgement on the evidence.

I had two pistols with me and threatened the many police who were waiting to grab me so they held back. I thought I could get someone to see what had been done, but nobody came.

Tony I wrote this to you hoping you might help - Andrew

Gordon - Men do not realise that they too can give birth. In physical life it is usually giving birth to creative things like music, an inventive idea etc. But here is an example - the easy way for men to give birth - in dreams.

"I was in a basement where my wife and a woman I loved was giving birth to a baby, but I was somehow the one who gave birth to it without a doctor being there. It was a lovely boy. Its lower face was covered by a tight caul, but I pulled this off and it began to breathe. It opened its eyes and looked about, fully conscious. Then said something about Jesus, and, “It is gone!” I asked what had gone, and it replied, “The other ego; where has it gone?” I explained that the spirit self it knew before birth was now gone so it could live in the body. The baby was then taken upstairs, and I felt it was a holy and wonderful baby. I was going to rest from the rigours of the birth, but on looking around saw how dusty and dirty the basement was. I began to clean it, and felt I would go upstairs and rest afterwards."

In Islam it is believed that men can give birth to the holy one.

You were also involved in some way with great changes - medical. The aged man probably symbolises the amount of wisdom you have gathered that has led to being able and ready to give birth. The women with you I see as the feminine aspect of you needed to gave birth - shown in the example where the man was also two women. for we must have incorporated our feminine side to be capable of such spiritual growth. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/archetype-of-the-anima-the-female-in-the-male/

Vibration and shaking is movement, and movement is one of the main signs of life. Life and growth are interwoven, and one of the first signs of massive personal growth or change is shaking or vibration in the body or pelvic movement or even electricity running through your body.

Example: What I am given to understand is that once those inner organs start to function it begins to transform the body. New energy or different levels of energy flow through the body. Sometimes the person feels themselves vibrating either as they meditate or in sleep, and this is a sign of that new energy. It also shows that in some way, as suggested in the analogy of the seed, when the seed produces a stem and pushes above the soil, it can take in the energy of the sun. So as these organs unfold in a person they become almost like leaves that taking this new energy in. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

Hi Mernel - The cat is often a symbol of yourself as a woman. You reached with your hand, a sign you were extending good will to someone. But your attempt was met with things that hurt your feelings of attempting to be friends.

Cooking is a way we transform ‘inedible’ or ‘unpalatable’ aspects of our life. So you cut off your attempts to be a friend and tried to make your actions 'palatable'.

It seems like you want to make things okay, but that might not be possible. You can turn the other cheek of course, but that does not mean you are literally hit again and again, I think it means you do not have to carry bad feelings with you and that you can be yourself - maybe your loving self? That is sometimes a very powerful thing.

You have both been busy. I will add only a small thing. Here are some peoples experience of realising you are more than your brain and body.

Another person says, ‘Unexpectedly everything changed and my fundamental self was something that existed throughout all time. It didn’t have a beginning or end. There was no goal to achieve. I am.’

Slightly different but still the same enlightenment. ‘Everything seemed to slip away and I felt as if I melted back into the primal being of the universe. It didn’t seem as if my ego was gone, just melted into everything else. It was blissful.’

"In a few words, I got to the point where I realised that the answer I was looking for was myself. So why was there any need to make an effort to find oneself? The more one sought an answer, the less likely one was to find one. All effort dropped away and I existed in a simple state of being, of clear existence, for hours. My ego seemed to melt, yet it was still there, it hadn’t been destroyed or overcome, or denied. It had simply dropped like effort from the limbs when we sleep.

In this state I had a wonderful sense that I had been let into the Garden of Eden again. Everybody was always in the Garden but they cannot see it because they have lost their innocence. They have covered up their perception of it with too many thoughts, opinions, struggles, attitudes, fears, dreams and hopes. I could see that we play thoughts and attitudes like records, and these were not ourselves. I knew myself as the empty awareness of existence. It was heaven, it was peace, it was beyond any effort.

At one point I suddenly realised the meaning of the Cheshire Cat in Alice In Wonderland. I was touching the radiance, the self existent gentle joy of existence, and my ego was not there. It had melted, disappeared. And this was what I saw had happened to the Cheshire Cat. All that was left was the smile, hanging in emptiness. That was how I felt, like a smile hanging in space.

The most moving thing was that what I had found was completely unlike what I had expected. I had thought that it would be like a breakthrough; a terrific heightened awareness; a transcendent lift into another way of being, a losing oneself in a wider world, even a drunkenness of spirit that allows a freedom from the limitations of our usual emotions. It wasn’t at all like any of those. What happened was the simple, the everyday experience of existing, of being, without any trappings. This was so simple and beautiful I wept. I wept to see we all had it, and it was so near at hand. It was not at all a long way off. It was not something that we had to earn or fight to achieve. It was with us all the time and we failed to see it because we were looking for something complicated."
