Self-Defense Dream: Knife Work

17 February 2017

In the dream, it was a special day. There was a widely televised fashion show and a wedding for royalty or something like it. I had just come back from battle and was carrying stories of victory which I was eager to share.

Within that setting a lot was going on.

At one point I was sparring with my self-defense instructor using knives and I was eager to show others how to protect themselves.

At another point I was helping to set up a large display with cake.

At another time I was being treated as a hero, being given medals or awards and such, which I didn’t want but I let them give me because it was meaningful to them.

 

Daily Dream Diary – Preparing To Board a Flight

The dream wasn’t exactly linear but it wasn’t chaotic either.

I was in an airport and getting ready to go on a flight to somewhere I wanted to go.

It was a nice feeling of being prepared and feeling excited about where I was going and also those around me were prepared and excited too.

Someone commented on my outfit saying it looked nice and I could where it when I arrived. I had on a jean skirt, a white shirt and a colourful scarf and brown boots. I looked artistic but grounded. I laughed and told someone I looked the part and they agreed.

I was going to a conference as a writer. It wasn’t clear if I was presenting or attending but either way it was a perfect fit.

Dream: Plane Crash

Thanks for sharing this dream. What a great dream!
Here’s the dream:
I dreamt I was working and ran into C. We started talking about food and he was like omg you have to meet this chick that works here. We go meet her and she is a hot blonde and we hit it off right away. But the chick was a bad ass soup maker. And she made this pork soup and to make it taste right u had to be able to kill the pig in under 24!seconds. Lol so she killed pigs by choking them out with her legs Hahahaha. So any way after tht I was walking thru this building and a fighter plane crashed outside. We all seen it crash but it wasn’t sad or shocking it made everyone start dancing and singing. Then I went and had lunch with that chick that kills pigs and we made out a bit. Then later on it was dark and I want outdoor skating on a golf course that had ice trails lol that was my dream.
Here’s the solution:
This dream is mostly mixed images between negative and positives. So what you want to do with a dream like this is first highlight and notice the positives. When you are skating outdoors on a golf course with ice trails you are at your best. That is because you have learned how to skate on ice which is like flowing through the challenges in life with grace and ease. You are going to want to remember what you do well now, like skating on ice, because what is coming up in life will be a bit negative. Everyone will be okay and surprisingly will start dancing and singing but a fighter plane crashing is a big deal and you are in the process of learning about this.
Now you might happen to be skilled at walking through buildings when planes crash and maybe you are gifted in this in real life but looking at the metaphor for now is the place to start.
A plane is about traveling and air is about the future. Believe it or not the place you want to be is in the pilot position of that plane. But you can’t get to it because for one you are in the building and for two it crashed.
In real life, you are going to want to be more like your adventurous self which can go way beyond what you thought was possible to take extra-ordinary risks when you see an opportunity for a positive thing to grow into a great future. Right now you see it but then you let it crash. That’s why the plane crashed in the building.
You’ve got to stop doing that now. Otherwise everything will go up in flames.
Instead, you can ask yourself where in life are you like someone skating through a nice ice trail in a golf course. Be like that in your relationships even when others are not. Then you will get to where you want to go. So long as you are stuck in the fear of things going wrong you will keep seeing planes crash.
The reason the people could sing and dance even after a crash is because in the spiritual way of looking at things even negatives can be flipped to positives and Joy can be experienced even after horrible things happen. This is a tough one for most of us to get in our North American way of doing things. But probably C.and people like him don’t get it. But you do, that’s why you go skating at the end.
I hope this makes sense.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Dreamwork Tip: Use the Positives To Solve the Negatives

Dream: In the dream, I am riding an elephant. It felt amazing!

Interpretation & Solution:

richardonmountainYour dream process is part positive and part negative. When this happens, the dream is first telling you to remember and use all of the positive qualities that exist in the dream and then to solve the other images.   For instance, you have your self riding on an elephant in the jungle.  It reminds you that you have an adventurous spirit that can go to the ends of the earth.

 

Challenge: A mix of negatives and positives are showing up in dreams or in real life.

Solution: Remember and Use the Positives to Solve the Other Images/Issues

Application:

  1. Remember the Positives and Use them… Having an adventurous spirit  means not getting frustrated or discouraged when things become restricting, confining, or limiting. It means being willing and able to take risks to start new projects, explore new opportunities, to build new relationships. It means being open to growth in all regards.
  2. Solve the other Issues/Images… At the time of this dream, time and money was limited, some relationships were strained, the future was unclear and uncertain in many regards. Wondering about which direction to go was causing anxiety in the dreamer. Negative images of an uncertain and fearful future filled the mind. When the dreamer remembered she had a positive Adventerous Self she was able to consider new and exciting opportunities and options which were positive and helped to eliminate the anxiety.
