I was dead yet still alive
« on: January 29, 2022, 10:34:37 AM »
Hello, reading your dream about being shot reminded me of a dream I had:  I was in an army and in my tent, presumably an officer as it was just for me, Jenny came in and shot me, I staggered (doing a Jimmy Cagney style effort), picked my rifle and shot her several times in the heart. The bullets going into the same hole. I can remember thinking, ‘That was good shooting’ and collapsed. I woke hearing sounds of the camp in the distance, stood up and looked around. There was a scrubby bush and two legs with boots on sticking out from underneath it. When I looked at them I realised it was my body and that I was dead. Then it switched to rolling green fields and I was walking along, hand in hand with Jenny.

A very interesting example of the images dreams create to explain themselves. To perhaps understand what is occurring you must understand the creation of dreams.

You might ask why do dreams need to explain themselves? Well. dreams have been experienced for millions of years in animals, so as dreamers we are not the first to dream. Dreams started in animals that had no self awareness and not a language such as the one we try to communicate with. So dreams have their beginning in a level of awareness we have almost lost. I call that level of awareness the Core. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/summing-up/#Core

This core self is simply bodiless consciousness and to make itself understandable to our conscious word and image oriented self it uses images and scenes from our everyday life as an attempt to have us understand its Life created messages. Yes, LIFE, the very important thing that gives us life and awareness. See https://dreamhawk.com/body-and-mind/the-end-user/#Bodiless

So your dream is possibly saying that although there is death of the body there is no death for our consciousness. Of course because we have the enormous belief we are the body it is shown that your body is still alive, and you are conscious within it.
