Bossy woman and crystals
« on: May 27, 2019, 10:09:25 AM »
Dream
The previous night I dreamt a woman died and left me loads of crystals from her crystal shop.  Initially I thought only other people were being given crystals, and I felt lonely and embarrassed, but then my turn came and I got more than everyone put together.  I was given a tray full of crystals of all sizes and colours and worth alot. I then put on a sort of ceremonial necklace I was given, this went around my head and down to my feet with crystals through  it. But I hung it back up, thinking I could never wear it anywhere.

Last night I am walking as part of a small group, we're in lowland and desert hills  in Egypt. A bossy woman, a man probably her husband, a young boy and me. Now we are crossing a hill with rich red soil. I ask the name of it. The woman gives it a name that doesn't belong to it. She names everything after herself and her husband. The whole landscape it seems she does the same. I trail behind as I keep finding large crystals lying on the ground. Quartz, rose quartz, citrine, a pale blue crystal. I pick some up,  but there are too many to carry. I observe the bright sunlight shining through and I'm just thrilled by their beauty.

Now we have arrived at a beach by the sea. Right next to the sea are five or six really large rectangular Egyptian tombs covered in brightly painted figures. We walk behind them. I feel the energy as dark and dense, not good. The sun disappears, its cold. I say I'm going round to the seafront leaving the group, it feels better there, energy is higher, sun is back. Then I look back and I see them opening one of the tombs. I decide to move away quickly. They seem like idiots and probably don't know what they are unleashing. I'm not sure if they are tourists or Egyptians themselves.
But the woman is arrogant anyway. If I was to describe the woman's energy I'd say merciless and competitive.

Now I'm on a small English type community hall stage, not far away. The little boy is there. He's bright red from embarrassment possibly to do with being on a stage/performance. I comfort him and I'm kind. I go out another exit, not planning to return to that group.

Omega – Firstly your start you dream by confusion about the difference between your life in your body and your dream life. It was because you felt; “But I hung – the ceremonial necklace - back up, thinking I could never wear it anywhere.” So you were still thinking it would look odd if you wore it during life in the body. But your dream life is totally different.

Here is an example from a young and intelligent woman, Barbara: “I did things that I knew my father would be interested in because I observed that he had a very strong filter: things he wasn’t interested in (e.g. art and music) he completely ignored and didn’t try to be interested in. Therefore I felt that if I didn’t do things that fell into his areas of interest I would not get his attention or interest.”

So Barbara is saying that her father is not only the prisoner of his beliefs, but also is enormously restricted by his inability to meet his emotions. Later in our communications, Barbara described the traps she herself is caught in and beginning to find freedom from.

“Most of my demons reside in my head; i.e. I invent the possibility of rejection and abandonment and respond to my own imagination by trying to avoid it happening. The old reflex is to attempt to do what will please those I care for to stop them, my father, abandoning me. The other complicating element has been the strategy of cutting off feeling to cope with an emotionally painful situation that I feel powerless to get out of, because that would displease the people who love me and that would mean they might reject/abandon me.”

So Omega you are restricting your inner life, shown as your dream, by the restrictions you place around your outer life in the body. Another factor in this imprisonment is that many of us believe there is no difference between our body and who we are. If we look awful then it means we are an awful or unattractive person. Along with that it is almost impossible for most of us to gain any distance between what we feel and who we believe we are. We feel a failure – we are a failure. We feel inferior – we are inferior. Others of us have been told things as a child – you idiot, can’t you get anything right; you – Never amount to anything, etc. That stuff sticks, and if we believe it we are trapped by it and live it. It all becomes a habit. If we are to find our way out of its clutches we need a new habit, a new way of dealing with it.

In fact our body, its situation and looks and how we react to it does not really say who we are – to realise this, view this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNZVV4Ciccg   

I spent time on that theme because it is a huge prison door that can be opened.

The rest of the dream goes on to rub your nose in the fact that you have enormous inner resources and value
 that you still do not claim. But the bossy woman is a trait you must be aware of. It sounds as if it may have been an influence from your mother, so use https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/self-observation/ to help meet it and change any influence it has in you. Opening those tombs may be you have got near to opening and realising the great influence the ‘woman’ had on you. Maybe even read http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/questions-you-asked/#StuckIn
