Christmas Earrings Gift
« on: September 23, 2016, 06:21:16 PM »
Hi Tony, I hope you are well! :) My dreams have been very interesting lately but I'm glad to say that the exploration and insights are becoming much easier. I had this dream recently that I've been exploring and I have some awareness of its meaning and the feeling sense of it, but I'm curious to hear your insights on this one because I feel like it will be helpful.

I was at a store with my mother and my niece (a young woman) and I found these new Halloween and Christmas costumes both together. It included a long coat and suspenders and was very colorful and lively looking. I felt so excited as I was trying it on. Then my niece gave me these Christmas earrings that had two sides - black and white and they were sort of oval in shape but more like a square with rounded corners. On the black side was the palm of a hand that was gloved except for the thumb which was exposed. The white side had a snow like sparkle effect to it and there was a very beautiful crystal. ~DT

Dreamtime – I am very well in myself, but I have entered the autumn and winter period of my life, and like any growing thing, my body is ageing and fading in energy. Life is followed by death, and death is followed by life, in natures great cycles. But my fading seems quite slow, and it seems it will be few more years before a new beginning. 

Your dream has so much intimated in it, but I will do my best.

You start in company with women in different stages of their life. It suggests that you have within your own life experience or relationship with these stages. You have certainly lived through being in your mother’s womb, on through childhood, girlhood to your present stage of growth. Also by being with your mother witnessing her own ageing you have experience of that too in some measure.

The next part of the dream takes another step – excitement. Clothes for alive young women are an extension of what they feel within them. As an example, flowers are the sexual organs of plants, and they extend the wonder of reproduction in most amazing colours, perfumes and shapes. Women also feel this wonder and do likewise, but unlike the plant, they have more than reproduction and attraction to offer for we are multilevel being – also an incorporating being. You are made up of many different cells, and have incorporated many different bacteria and have taken in alien life forms which you now have as part of your evolutionary history – the mitochondrion which at one time had a separate existence.

As I keep repeating in various ways, we are an extraordinary mystery, only a small part of which we are aware of.

The niece, I do not know what you associate with her, but she gives you a deeper understanding of the mystery mentioned above. The black and the white are symbols of that. They represent the duality that is part of every part of living – the female and male, sun and earth, sleeping and waking, life and death. They typified by the sun and earth. The sun reaches out through space, and in doing so penetrates the earth and the earth gives form to living forms. Without the sun the earth would be dark and lifeless – without the earth there would be no creation if life forms. The male sexual organ reaches out across space and penetrates the female sex organ, which in itself is just a nothing ness, an emptiness, and yet is rich and can bring forth a life form.

But the mystery your niece sent you has qualities. The gloved hand – which I like to think was in a black glove – suggesting it too was part of the creative emptiness. The thumb is, in dreams, often represents our will, our signature of self-expression, which is still active in the darkness, the absence of light, but is at the same time the mother of everything. They are co-dependent – the light and dark, the emptiness and the fullness, the female and the male.

The white side has a sparkle, which is a quality of light, and a crystal – the invisible power that creates form with ‘lifeless’ materials.

But all that is words unless they produce an inner response. As I am fond of repeating - - Dream images are like icons on a computer screen - You have to ‘click’ on your dream images to make them come alive. Thinking about them doesn’t work. You need to open yourself to the magic of them. To make them into the wonderful gateways they are you may have to learn certain skills.

Since reading your reply the word ‘icon’ keeps coming up again and again in my waking world and I find that exploring this way is becoming far easier the more I am able to relax inward. Sometimes I find the 'uncomfortable' emotions difficult to explore even though I know that it’s through the exploration that understanding and release comes. While I was growing up whenever I was experiencing difficult emotions I was told "we just don't let ourselves feel that way"...not surprisingly everyone in the household was either depressed or emotionally volatile. What's truly amazing is how such deeply ingrained patterns of behavior can be changed and entirely rewritten as new states of being open up and awareness comes.

My niece is associated with a previous state of being deeply hurt and then completely shutting down into a sort of numb depression and all the experiences, emotional baggage, beliefs and attitudes that led to the shutdown. As this has progressively changed her symbolic appearance and behavior in my dreams has likewise changed. Recently I was reviewing all of my dreams since I started exploring a few years back and it's incredible how they are like a symbolic record of all the inner changes leading to the outer changes. It's such a wonder how they reflect the deeper processes of change and healing happening or what's surfacing in many cases long before there's any conscious awareness. Thanks again for your insights and all that you share through your site Tony!  :) ~DT

DT - Thank you for such a graphic and interesting feedback.

So many more people read the posts than we realise, so your words will be well read.

Yes, it's amazing how reading the dreams and posts of others helps with our own process and understanding. I was this forum a couple of weeks ago, even though I hadn't posted in quite a long time, and for some reason I ended up looking in one of the folders I don't normally explore. There was this one post that immediately caught my eye and when I read it over it was exactly the same thing I was experiencing at the time! :)

P.S. I'm glad your fading is quite slow Tony, even though I imagine the new beginning will be wonderful when the time comes.

Dreamtime - Please don't keep us all in suspense - what was the folder/post you read?

It was the folder Healing Dreams and it's the third post down in the list at the moment titled 'I could breath again and felt I was whole' (copied below). In my case it wasn't that it was the exact same circumstance but involved a similar sort of entanglement or attachment with numerous negative effects. At the time I was experiencing a lot of heart constriction and difficulty fully breathing (translating to difficulty engaging and fully taking in life). This has begun to really change more recently.

Another curious part of my situation and the post is that an intuitive a few years back told me about this attachment, describing it as a very deep cord that was rooted in a 'past' life experience where we were sisters and I left her for some reason and she died so I felt somehow responsible and guilty for her death. When I randomly felt drawn to that post, the synchronicity of it was pretty incredible and it really provided a lot of relief because I could better understand what seemed to be resolving, even though the process itself felt especially shitty and overwhelming at that time. This entanglement is still in process of fully ending but my heart and lungs are both changing in wonderful ways along with my attitudes and feeling connection with people, animals, and overall life in general. ~DT

    Insert Quote


This dream was told me by a woman after I had given a talk on dreams.

She said, "I was in what looked like huge white ribs. In the ribs was a big heart beating. Beyond that was my homeopath. I could hardly breath, struggling to live. I could hear the heart beating, but as I listened I could also hear another heart beating. It seemed to me it was my sister's heart connected to my own invisibly. The homeopath came forward and stretching open the ribs, reached into them, took hold of the invisible heart - it was like a shadow behind the other heart - and pulled it out. Immediately I could breath again and felt I was whole.

 
In everyday life I and my sister have been incredibly linked, even to the point of having cramps at night on the same nights, though living in different parts of the world. I had become ill recently out of this connection, but as soon as I had this dream I was well again, but my sister became ill. She has just been diagnosed as HIV positive and is dying."

Thanks 'A'

Dreamtime – Thank you so much for explaining and your description.

In the Forum sometimes feedback is given, but a huge number of dreams are posted in the comment section beside each entry – these, and often in the forum, no acknowledgement or feedback is ever given.

What I am about to write is not a moan, but a statement of fact. Personally I give up to eight hours of the day to answering dreams, which I have done solidly for six years – although the site started in the late eighties, when no dreams were replied to. I accept this because I get to tangle with so many dreams and the people behind them, and it is a huge learning process for me. And so receiving your reply is also for me a learning process. Learning because it is about what interests and aids you – and hopefully others - in understanding. In reading it again I see something stated in the quantum findings – we are connected beyond the limits of space and time.

Tony

Tony, I'm happy to explain and share. I know it's not a moan...and I have wondered in the past how you have the patience and dedication to do what you do. It's truly amazing that you spend your time helping people by sharing all you have learned and experienced and helping people understand how dreams are such powerful resources. I am very grateful for all the time you spend answering dreams and I'm sure there are many others that feel the same as well. Your replies, insights and the work you share through your books and site are incredibly helpful in the way you bring so much information together and redirect people inward when it seems like the world today is so full of external confusion.

Quantum entanglement and connection is something that fascinates me more and more these days as it becomes clear how constant it truly is and how it can be both healing or harmful. I've had so many experiences with this that have been absolutely mind blowing as well as very simple things like how an old acquaintance randomly came to mind the other day while I was outside relaxing in the garden and then later on, when I came inside, I noticed he had 'liked' something on my facebook page at the same time he had suddenly come to mind in the garden. Many times I have also had random strangers in public places suddenly share answers to questions I have been wondering about or some sort of guidance that is deeply meaningful and personal. It's much the same how we can find guidance or understanding through reading the dreams that others share in this forum. ~DT
