Dream Interpretation / Re: A psychic came to visit
« Last post by Tony Crisp on August 06, 2021, 10:35:11 PM »
Deb - – The dream starts with you working at healing yourself - the hospital. And that healing allows the psychic to appear, for the psychic is part of you, for all the people, animals, places you see in your dreams, are simply your own feelings, fears. hopes and wonder projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind as images.

We all have psychic ability, but we are bombarded with information that being psychic is not possible, or you have to be extraordinary, so it builds a huge barrier against what is a natural part of life..

The psychic is obviously part of your abilities – so see https://dreamhawk.com/inner-life/using-your-intuition-1/

Recent research into brain activity shows that in fact the brain has different layers or strata of activity. These strata often act independently of each other or of conscious will. Sensing them, as one might in a dream, might feel like meeting an opposing will or being possessed by an alien force. Integration with these aspects of self can of course be gained. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/brain-levels-and-dreams/ and https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/life-will-and-conscious-will/

In a recent news program on television, a man who survived the Japanese prisoner of war camp in Singapore had been given a photograph of children by a dying soldier he did not know. The man had asked him to tell his family of his death, but did not give his name. The photograph was kept for forty odd years, the man still wanting to complete his promise but not knowing how. One night he dreamt he was told the man’s name. Enquiries soon found the family of the man, who had an identical photograph. This illustrates another ability we all have but is repressed by our huge dependence upon our body's senses - for we have the ability to access the huge collective unconscious Carl Jung defined. When reach beyond our normal awareness we are capable of entering collective knowledge of everything.

Edgar Cayce At an early age he discovered that he could put himself into a trance-like sleep at will. In this condition he could answer any question on any subject. His answers were couched in the terms of the question, i.e. medical, scientific, philosophical, historical, etc. Thus, although his education was little, and he was often described as illiterate, the answers given to questions were yet couched in technical terms unknown to his conscious mind. Politicians, businessmen, scientists, priests, all visited him to see how he could help them while he was asleep. In this way, he dictated fourteen million words on thousands of different subjects. When asked during a trance how he could give such varied and amazing information, he said, “Edgar Cayce’s mind is amenable to suggestion, the same as all other sub-conscious minds, but in addition thereto it has the power to interpret to the objective mind of others what it has acquired from the subconscious state of other individuals of the same kind. The subconscious mind forgets nothing. The conscious mind receives the impressions from without and transfers all thought to the subconscious, where it remains even though the conscious be destroyed.” See https://dreamhawk.com/interesting-people/cayce-his-wisdom/

Dream Interpretation / A psychic came to visit
« Last post by Tony Crisp on August 06, 2021, 10:26:46 PM »
I dreamt I was at work at the hospital and a psychic came to visit. The psychic came right up to me and whispered to me that I worry to much about my health. I was relieved with what he said but I felt a sudden urge to ask him a question. He was in a hurry to go so I stopped him in the doorway. I asked if I could just ask him one question and as he turned around I could tell he was annoyed. I said that I have always felt like I should be able to see spirits so why can’t I. He responded by coming up to me and taping my eyes closed and in that moment I began to see gold outlines. I was so happy when I awoke. Deb

Joseph - After 60 years of dreaming, exploring mine and many other people's dreams, I see that dreams are meticulously careful about what they present. Also every image or scene is to represent something other than the obvious.

So the back of your childhood house is full of meaning. It usually represents the less publicly viewed and private area of your life. Where one can be more of oneself out of the public eye, or even keep it hidden.

Also it was your childhood house, Which often refers to feelings or incidents. sometimes traumatic, that occurred in your childhood years. Remember that a house nearly always refers to you, depicting your body and aspects of your personality. This becomes obvious if, having visited friend’s houses you judge their character by the condition of the house. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/childrens-traumatic-fears/

Grilled cat - this may refer to the fact that humans have more than their human brain and have a separate reptile and mammal brain. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/brain-levels-and-dream

But the cat is a mammal and can represent the mammal instinctive side if you, The functions of the Mammalian brain that exist within the Human ‘brain’, MacLean likened to the skills shown in mammals such as wild dogs and apes. Mammals show enormous awareness of bonding, caring for young, group activity, hierarchy and recognition of family and pack. This part of your human ‘brain’ integrates and refines the functions of the reptilian brain. It provides emotional range and intensity, and gives a greater complexity to what motivates or deters us. It is this greater awareness of how we relate to others, and the social structure in which we exist, along with a sense of what place in it we occupy, that enables us to modify and coordinate the impulses arising from the reptilian brain.

But of course it depends on what feelings you have about cats that decides what it means in your dream. Because it refers to your childhood I can't see it relating to feelings you been having towards a friend, unless it is a trauma you experienced, which could be likely, because everything in your dream is about you - even the cat, and they were burnt suggesting great pain that you wanted to put and end to.

Dreams try to present to us old painful memories, and childhood pain when faced by adults makes them repress such pain.

Dream Interpretation / Grilled cats
« Last post by Joseph101 on August 04, 2021, 04:19:30 PM »
I usually feel pretty good about interpreting my own dreams but this one has me puzzled and a bit disturbed. Help would be appreciated.
I dreamt I was walking around to the back of my childhood house and saw that someone had grilled a cat. It wasn’t quite dead. The white stripes on the tail stood out prominently to me and I feared it was my cat. I wouldn’t let it be cat so after rationalizing it away I felt better but was still concerned that I needed to do something to put the cat out of it’s misery. I didn’t want to even though I knew it would be a mercy. I went to get someone or something to do it with and when I came back there was what appeared to be another cat, bigger and fully dead. It looked like a sleeping cat charred black. I woke up just as I was wondering why whoever roasted it hadn’t eaten it before leaving.
After journaling and considering some suggested meanings, all that came to me is this could possibly be related to the feelings I’ve been having towards a friend who used to be a romantic relationship. I’m annoyed that he seems to be pining over the past even though he chose not to pursue anything more than friendship. I don’t understand why someone would pine over something they rejected and continue to reject. It seems like a weak connection but it’s all I came up with. I’d appreciate other possibilities/insights. Also, I don’t know if it’s useful but my mom died a few months ago and I have also felt “homeless” in a way since then. Thanks, J
Dream Interpretation / Re: Circle within a circle
« Last post by Tony Crisp on August 03, 2021, 11:21:03 AM »
Okay - This basically about your personal efforts to grow psychologically.

The tools beside you show that you have ability to do the work but in the dream you are not doing it. Also the compost shows that your basic self is fertile enough to produce excellent growth. So you are all set to achieve.

You are going through a tough time. I had a lot of those and used to curse whatever was producing them, but having grown beyond some of the tough times I can look back and see that they were all ways of training me to gain new skills when I met the 'Big Un'  - through what I experienced and learn I was prepared tp take the next step.

Recently I have been reviewing some of the classic ways of meeting Life creatively. One of them was Jung's circle within a circle. It was his way of showing that the small circle is the small self we know as our personality and view of life from our limited senses - the bigger circle he named The Self - The Big Un.

Other descriptions of this may be a bit clearer:

In Yoga is the statement that we are all Sachidananda – or Sat-cit-ananda which is our fundamental self below everything, also a descriptive term or description of the subjective experience of the ultimate unchanging reality, called Brahman. The term means that we are basically Being, Consciousness and Bliss.
This is the very heart or basis of Yoga thought:

I am of the nature of consciousness.
I am made of consciousness and bliss.
I am nondual, pure in form, absolute knowledge, absolute love.
I am changeless, devoid of desire or anger, I am detached.
I am One Essence, unlimitedness, utter consciousness.
I am boundless Bliss, existence and transcendent Bliss.
I am the Atman, that revels in itself.
I am the Sacchidananda that is eternal, enlightened and pure.

Although your dream hints at work, we often have a strange view of work. Form the classic paths to the best in us they say things like -

There is no way – there is no path

The strange thing about yoga is that although one may make efforts to gain enlightenment, in fact we all have it and so there is no need to make an effort.

This life – of enlightenment – is just a describer, and one of the things it sees is that this state does not belong to anyone. It’s not something you can get from someone. It’s who everyone is. From here, the highest volume is the sound of the infinite ocean that we all are. Suzanne Sega.
If you stop editing your thoughts and emotions, and let things happen as Jung suggests, material that had been repressed and unconscious starts to emerge. If you are still totally identified with your emotions, your body sensations, your sexual urges and thoughts, then you could be tossed around like a rag doll by a dog. So, ‘Do Nothing but let things Happen’.
R. D. Laing sums it up in his book `Politics of Experience' by saying: “This journey is experienced as going further "in", as going back through one's personal life. in and back and through and beyond into the experience of all mankind, of the primal man, of Adam and perhaps even further into the being of animals, vegetables and minerals. In this journey there are many occasions to lose one's way, for confusion, partial failure, even final shipwreck: many terrors, spirits, demons to be encountered, that may or may not be overcome. 

He also said, “‘What you are looking for is what is looking.’ Enlightenment is not a state of mind you can create or develop. It is something beyond any change, outside of anything you can develop. After all, development suggests change.
Since there is nothing to meditate on, there is no meditation.
Since there is nowhere to go astray, there is no going astray.
Although there is an innumerable variety of profound practices, they do not exist for your mind in its true state.

Since there are no two such things as practice and practitioner, if, by those who practice or do not practice, the practitioner of practice is seen to not exist, thereupon the goal of practice is reached and also the end of practice itself.
Of course the above statements are made from a mind free from the restraints most of us live under, for as another Yogi said:

“The disciple is a being whose essential nature is Knowledge, isn’t he?”
“Then there is no need to give him knowledge but simply to remove the veil of ignorance that hides the existent Knowledge. This, of course, is not to be done at one stroke, since the disciple is immersed in age-old ignorance and needs repeated instruction, perhaps through life after life. And what is this instruction through speech about what is beyond speech? Isn’t it like removing the cover? Ignorance conceals the pre-existent Knowledge just as water plants cover the surface of a pond. Clear away the plants and you have the water. You don’t have to create it; it is already there. Or take another example—a cataract grows on the eye and prevents a man from seeing; remove the cataract and he sees. Ignorance is the cataract. The universe is the efflorescence of the indescribable Maya, which is ignorance; yet ignorance is needed to illuminate and dissolve ignorance … Jnana is not something to be attained, it is eternal and self-existent. On the other hand, ignorance has a cause and an end. The root of it is the idea that the devotee is a separate being from God. Remove this, and what remains is Jnana. (Jnana refers to pure awareness that is free of conceptual encumbrances – See The way of Mary ”-

So the virgin posture of the soul is an attempt to bring about an inner state, an inner feeling of fertility and love towards your invisible and unknown potential - purity from preconceived ideas - the offering of your whole being as material for your potential to use in creating a new self - the act of supplication in which you let go of your thoughts, emotions and body, so they can be played upon as a piano or organ by Life. There should arise a feeling of warmth toward and desire for the unseen Life, openness to any possibility Life may have in store for you, good or bad, allied with trust. If you have a temperament capable of this, then make it an act of love, a real devotion, approaching ones darling.

Hi Tony,

I appreciate Anna and ToBeAware's interpretation, but is there any more meaning to it then interpreted by them?

Dream Interpretation / Re: We Are Going To Die
« Last post by Tony Crisp on August 01, 2021, 12:20:42 PM »
Hi Carina - People have trained to see death as Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust. In other words the end of our body. But that was the since of the 18 hundreds - where the atom was thought to be the basic of human Life - a physical object. But science has moved on and I believe you have too, for quantum physics says things like - "We are participators. The universe in some strange way may be brought into being by our participation." And "So light was thought as the fastest one could achieve; but the sub-atomic-particles were seen to be everywhere at once. Also it was seen that a human observer could change the sub-atomic-particles, suggesting that we in some way create the world around us. Also the term quantum ghosts was defined, because quantum phenomena can pass through any solid object – just as we can do when experiencing a so called out of body experience."

Also the we are fundamentally energy which can never die but can change its for of expression. David Bohm, an eminent physicist, goes as far as to say that all things in our observable universe are inextricable linked. Nothing has separate existence.

But your dreams I believe are created by the belief that death is the end - but that is the body, and you have many other dimensions of expression, dreams being one most are somewhat aware of. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/dimensions-of-human-experience/

So the images and fears we experience in our dreams are projection upon the vast screen of our mind. They are all projections from you. Running from them is like trying to escape from yourself. But such dreams are like a computer game with full surround virtual reality. In such games you can be killed a thousand times and yet you survive to deal with the monsters again. That is unless you learn a way through and go on through the levels. But unlike those games there is a wonderful intelligence behind the dreams we have, and if you listen and learn from it you will find a real mastership – not a false one of deny any fear or repressing anything that threatens you.

You cannot be killed in a dream. All you can experience is the anguish and perhaps fear of dying, but in dreams you cannot die – or drown, or burn or any other threatening thing. We make the mistake of taking our very real values from our outer life into our inner life of dreams.

Here id an examples to show the difference when you take fear into your dreams, and when you do not.

Example: I was dreaming I was getting ready to leave and this dark haired guy told me I couldn’t leave, I felt scared and was going to leave anyways, he pulled out a pistol and shot me in the stomach, I fell down, but there was no blood. The thoughts in my head was, “OH NO”. Next thing I remember is that I was still on the floor in the same place and I got up and I remembered being shot but I didn’t seem to have any pain or blood and was moving normally etc. I started looking for a way to leave I was sneaking around trying not to get noticed so that I could get out of there w/o the shooter guy seeing me.

The interesting thing in the second example is that even though she could see no hurt came from being shot, yet she was still scared of the guy with the shooter. And it is overcoming such fears that can release you from terror and hurts that haunt us. But here are some dreams where the dreamer feels no fear.

You apparently are on the verge of taking the huge step of entering another dimension within you. This entails you experiencing dying - experiencing it, not dying physically. It is called - The Night Journey - the Search for Self - https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/archetype-of-the-night-journey-the-search-for-self/

R. D. Laing the genius psychiatrist gave a map of the journey as follows:
What is entailed then is:

i A voyage from outer to inner,

ii from life to a kind of death,

iii from going forward to going back,

iv from temporal movement to temporal standstill,

v from mundane time to aeonic time,

vi from the ego to the self,

vii from being outside (post birth) back into the womb of all things (pre birth).

viii And then subsequently a return voyage from:

ix Inner to outer,

x from death to life,

xi from the movement back to a movement forward,

xii from immortality back to mortality,

xiii from eternity back to time,

xiv from self to a new ego,

xv from a cosmic foetalisation to an existential rebirth.

This process may be one that all of us need, in one form or another. The process could have a central function in a truly sane society. Got it? Let yourself - personality - die.

Hi Mikey - Life is the basis for all Life Forms and it is so creative in amazing ways - look at the incredibly variety of living creatures from viruses, plants, sea creatures by the million, insects, animals mammals  including us mammals!!!

Your dream shows something of that, but I would love you to explore it yourself using https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/peer-dream-work/

I can see that the dream shows that things have come to the point of an end result of some sort. As i said or suggested. Life is so unexpected we will have to watch what happens to yo next - it is always unique, for every human - and there are billions - are unique in many ways - finger prints, DNA and you. See The https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=the+genographic+project+video&docid=608036445748756226&mid=153F98A298B9EE22E360153F98A298B9EE22E360&view=detail&FORM=VIRE - It is breathtaking.
