Swimming and Orange Life Saver
« on: August 20, 2012, 09:18:17 PM »

I hope this post finds everyone happy and well. I have decided to journal my dreams and would appreciate your thoughts and feedbacks as to what the meanings might be:

In the beginning, I dreamt that I was jumping giant stone brick walls. I was running before they shifting again and I got stuck between them. I managed to escape to safety and I think my sister was behind me running too and she also managed to get out safely.  I remember swimming in a creek, out in the deep end with an orange life saver around my waist. I became aware of how far out I was and began to peddle with my hands towards the shore. A friend of mine (my sister's crush) was in the water with me, he was playing with me and chasing me back to the shore. I saw other people in the water as I touched the shore and walked away from the water into my parent's car. I was hungry and looking for food, I saw a life jacket in their bus and thought, they got one too, maybe the lifeguards are sharing them out. But I remembered thinking I was the only one wearing the life saver in the creek, my sister and the others were not. I took off my life saver and placed it into my parent's bus and went inside my Auntie's house (my mom's eldest sister) to look for food. But it looked more like other Auntie's kitchen (my mom's younger sister) and inside the fridge were neatly packed cookies, food and goodies. I took some food (I can't seem to remember what was on my plate) but I went back to get some pepper sauce. I think a piece of my food fell on the table because when I returned with my pepper sauce and plate of food in my hand, I saw a cockroach. I felt grossed out by it and did not bother to pick it up my food. I saw the roach walked up the table looked and smelled it. Then walked away, I remember I was disgust by it but I did not think to kill it. I just wanted it to crawl away and it did.

Lots of Love,

Tony Crisp

Vasuki – This is a dream about escaping from situations that could have trapped you; situations such as particular beliefs or attitudes that could have been damaging.

Then you are swimming in deep water, a sign that you are in contact with your inner life but did not explore it. A sort of practise run, while wearing a life saver; which is probably a belief you have of not being in danger when you enter the inner world. But remember that you can safely dive under the surface in dreams.

The lifesaver incident might be about you feeling that the belief that held you up was uni que to you – but it isn’t.

Searching for food is often the search for what you hunger for – what is it? You seem to identify with your younger auntie. Perhaps she typifies what you are searching for. And the cockroach is the dark side of you that you feel is repugnant – feelings or drives that you do not allow expression.

Much love.
