In the dream I was sitting by a tree, with a few others, taking notes about a fitness program. We were at a track and field meet in huge cross country landscape through forest and field. I felt really great.
I just dreamed I was in a place, like a warehouse but it was set up like a school and there were piles of clutter in the desks and corners, etc. We had to clean it up before going somewhere. Some people were goofing off and it bothered me that they didn’t get cleaning. I was waiting for them to take action but they didn’t so finally I just started cleaning myself.
I started dumping all the clutter, toys, and bits into the garbage. I found food left from a long time ago, dumped it out. Found an old machine that didn’t work. At one point someone asked me to teach people a song. Eventually some others joined in the cleaning – one woman, who I went to kindergarten with came up to me and I showed her my broken phone and that I lost my other one. She listened closely and heard ticking and went over to it and collected it and gave it to me. I was happy to have it back.
This is a metaphor for what you have been doing over the past couple of years. You have been cleaning out the old stuff so that you can get so some place new. This dream shows you that you are good at the cleaning up process which you can only do yourself. It is something that is constant, but means that you are ready to go forward.
“The idea is to take the work beyond what people think of as dream interpretation to being more solution-oriented and as a way to delve deeper into the transformation experience. The main thing that people need to shift to is that their lives can be taken in a positive direction when they understand that the dream doesn’t come from them, but it is related to them and comes through them. It is such a powerful shift, but it takes submitting to another Will. ” (Richard Hastings)
Recently someone shared a dream with me which has a meaningful cultural message for everyone.
I dreamt I was at a concert and the building caught on fire we started to evacuate but security wouldn’t let us leave and they held us hostage. Me and a couple other guys managed to get away from the main population but some chick wouldn’t shut up she eventually got us caught then we were put to work as prisoners.
Concert – a public space for music & uplifting the soul
Fire – Inspiration
Security – more on this later
Being held hostage – being made to feel powerless
Main Population – cultural norms
“Some chick” – female, feminine qualities or virtues
prisoners – stuck in negatives, stuck in negative emotions
This dream reveals anger towards the female who did something which lead to negative experience for the dreamer.
Anger is a fiery emotion.
In the dream, it burns up the concert which is where the dreamer went to hoping to feel better & be uplifted.
The dreamer & his friends got away from the fire & the main population but they couldn’t get away from the chick.
Some women use sly methods to try to take ownership of the men in their lives as if they are their prisoner, their possession. It can come from a place of jealousy, anger or fear or any host of negative feelings which the woman has left over from experiences in childhood or adolescence when they were not allowed to develop their positive qualities and they learned to be manipulative instead in order to get their way.
Sometimes women use sex as the lure, or sometimes it’s their words or their tone of voice or any number of things which they’ve learned can really hook men. Once they have their man hooked it can be really hard for him to release himself, usually because he will feel bad for it appearing as if he’s abandoned her.
But in fact, he is not abandoning her, he is abandoning the trap. He has to do what is right for him. It might be the only way she would wake up to what she’s doing that is so hurtful for so many.
The woman in the dream, who is not named so it means it is a cultural pattern, in other words it could be any woman, is only thinking of herself. That’s why she gets the men in trouble.
The dreamer shows he has some anger about this type of behaviour in women because even though he has respect for women in real life, he calls her “some chick” when describing her in the dream.
“Some chick” is a good way to say, “some thoughtless, careless, inconsiderate & ignorant woman” wouldn’t be quite.
In the dream, the chick wouldn’t shut up.
And it got them into prison.
So what to do with a negative dream like this?
The dreamer could become like a positive version of the chick. He can go about his day and never shut up but instead of saying negatives he can say positives.
When we spend our time looking for positives we find them. It can be in noticing when someone is helpful, caring, kind or generous and then acknowledging it. Feeling gratitude is also a great way to elevate into a positive space.
Going to a concert might have worked in the past, in adolescence, but it doesn’t work anymore.
This dream is calling the dreamer to be more like some chick who just can’t shut up about how good life is now.
Finding positives and talking about them is one of the best ways to break free from the main population which is by-and-large just going along with things unconsciously and not realizing the main cultural issues which make people feel individually inprisoned. It is one of the best ways to help others. It is one of the best ways to be free to live life, think independently and act with enthusiasm towards new opportunities that exist every day.
In the dream I was in a market-like setting. There was a little bit of drama going on somehow. Like one friend not wanting to talk to another friend and my being in the middle somehow trying to encourage one or the other to let it go. One friend had a white shirt on. She reminded me of S.W.
Then I went to this Baha’i Temple of sorts where there was a conference. I was just checking things out and wandering around and I saw a large pyramid with many ancient symbols and hieroglyphs, on it carved into the stone in the back wall. The beautiful lighting made parts of it seem to glow.
I got really excited and went over to explore more, in complete awe and amazement. I asked myself why I didn’t see these before because I had been to this building before and I realized that I had seen them before but had become scared so I left. I had no fear now just love and I ran my fingers in the engraving tracing the symbols and contemplating their significance.
