Zombie Dream

Someone just told me this zombie dream.
He dreamed he was watching the dream and could see that he was in it but it wasn’t him. The guy in the dream was him but not him. He was white. Everyone in the dream was white.
So they were at a school, on a hill, where parents and teachers were getting sick with a disease turning them into zombies. He was trying to protect people and saying they had to kill the ones who turned into zombies but the others didn’t want to because they were saying “that’s so-and-so’s mother/teacher” etc.
So then he found a huge tree that had fallen over and it had a burrowed hole in it and he “zipped” up the tree where he was safe. Others who weren’t yet infected tried to follow him and they were passing him sticks asking him to pull them up and he was trying to pull them up but then they got infected too so he ripped the stick out of their hands and when the zombies approached he plunged the stick through their heads killing them.  He stayed safe.

My Dream of Dealing with a Psychopath and Calling in the Coroner

June 11, 2018
Recently, I dreamed of being in a large hotel-type place and in the dream I am in a room with an elderly woman who is handicapped physically but very alert & intelligent mentally. It’s not clear why I am there although it feels like she knows something about a crime her husband is involved in or something like that and I am getting info from her at the same time as helping her with some of her physical ailments, maybe even cleaning her space.
Anyway, at one point she positions herself on the couch in a bit of a contortion and she asks me to massage sore areas on her back which I proceeded to do (at that time someone comes up from behind me but I don’t pay them any attention) but then she turns herself around without alerting me and she loses her balance and she hits her head on the floor and when I reach to help her I see the blow killed her. I quickly put her head back on the couch pillow and shout to the front desk to call 911 even though I know she needs a coroner not paramedics.
I stand up and go to the door and the attendant gives me thumbs up that paramedics are on their way and when I turn to look back I find that the elderly woman is sitting up in a wheel chair. She is fine. I am confused because she had been dead and I approached her cautiously and turn her around towards me. Then I see the woman is black and shorter and was not the tall white woman who I had just been talking with, however the other person in the room is saying this is her and I know it isn’t. On the one hand I am relieved because her not being dead was better for me because I don’t want the questions from paramedics since I am the last one to have seen her alive. If she is not dead then I will not get questioned. But this woman is not the same woman and the man is up to some sort of hoax and he wants me to play along.
I am afraid of him and I had no idea what to do next and how to be prepared for when the paramedics arrive. How will I explain what was going on? They aren’t even trained to be able to really understand what I am trying to convey.
My analysis:
The truth is the man in the room is a psychopath and his aim is to try to make me look crazy. He tries to do this with everyone he knows. The reason psychopaths want to discredit others is because they want to make their own Selves seem more important, more valuable, more powerful. However his gimmick doesn’t work. He would have wanted me to go along with his charade when the paramedics arrive & pretend this actress is the woman I was helping. Most likely this tactic is a part of his crime. Psychopaths are criminally minded and create illusions to hide their true motives & true actions. In the dream, I am trying to think of how to tell the truth of what had happened without him harming me or the woman he is bribing to lie. In real life, this is not an issue so much since I’m usually able to help a lot of people who are dealing with psychopaths in their families or work places and the outcomes are always positive. In the dream I am also wondering what happened to the real woman? Where did he hide her? Can I find her & help her? If I called the coroner would they help look for her?
The metaphor of a coroner appearing at a crime scene with a psychopath is perfect because the job of a coroner is to confirm the time & cause of death. They are trained to see through the illusions, lies and manipulations of psychopaths & criminals. Not only that, but they have the responsibility to assert their observations and report their findings. A coroner coming into the room would expose the psychopath’s illusions and likely cause his anger to rage. What does a psychopath do when he’s angry? Seek revenge? Seek to destroy anyone he views as a threat? What is the solution for people to protect themselves from the rage of a psychopath?
Most average people do not like to get other people angry for fear of what they will do with their anger, even more so when dealing with a psychopath. But what if there is no fear? What if people just stopped fearing the negative actions of the psychopaths in their lives? How much different could things be if there was no fear? The game would change entirely. 
That’s what this dream is about because metaphorically speaking the psychopath cannot screw-around with the coroner. A coroner is above the manipulations. When a coroner enters the room, the illusion dissolves, the lie evaporates and the truth is exposed. That’s why psychopath-type personalities fear coroner-type personalities. Their manipulations can’t work. 

Being Attracted to the Difficult Thing

DAY 15: BEING ATTRACTED TO THE DIFFICULT THING

O SON OF MAN! If adversity befall thee not in My path, how canst thou walk in the ways of them that are content with My pleasure? If trials afflict thee not in thy longing to meet Me, how wilt thou attain the light in thy love for My beauty?  Baha’u’llah

 

The other day I was working with someone in a counseling session.   She was telling me a dream that she had sent me that was filled with fearful images including being threatened by someone throwing a snake at her.    When she was finished, she said,  “That was a good one.”   I told her that that was something I would say.   Very few people encounter and internal state of immense fear and then have positive energy toward working on it.   Usually when people have fear, they tend to do everything they can to not have to transform it.

Within the confines of doing dream work or change work  fear is not seen as a negative even though it is felt that way in the body.  In actuality fear only becomes a negative when it is present in your everyday waking life.   When you are involved in the process of changing it,  it is a positive thing.   In fact it is hard to imagine, although it is possible, to do significant change work without a large dose of a fear-related emotion.   Fear is good because it gives you the script through which to get the positive energy on the other end.    A dream with a great deal of fear in it is even better because it is like a spiritual guide to where you want to go.

Facing a large fear is like training on hills.   Hill work is a lot more challenging than running on a flat surface because every step up is worth two or three on the flat.

No human being on the planet is completely free of fear so when we have them, the best attitude toward them is being able to look forward to working on them.   You can look forward to transforming a fear in same way that you look forward to taking a holiday.   Every time you make progress on the fear it brings more positive energy into your life.    It doesn’t matter how long it takes to overcome a fear because some fears are pretty complex and built with a lot of life experience.  Your soul becomes fitter every time you look into the ego, see the dark places, then change them to light.

Today I am having a uniquely Malaysian experience.  Last night we had some guests at our house that left large piles of dishes.   I was so delighted at seeing the dishes because today is the day our maid is supposed to come and clean our house.   However, we found out a little while ago that she is not coming.  Now the mountain in the kitchen is mine to tackle.   So the challenge for me is to to be able to think about it in a positive way.   This is where the rubber really hits the road.

Having a positive attitude toward overcoming fear is an absolute necessity to a life of change, but some fears can be so crippling that you need a lot of help in overcoming them especially when you have a history of alcohol-related abuse and other abuse in your past.   You can still have a positive attitude about facing the fears.  You just need the right avenues for help.

The work for today is do the thing you least want to do, but have a positive attitude doing it.

Being a Positive Avalanche

May 09, 2018

The other day I dreamed of running away from an avalanche of snow. I was able to get to safety with a friend and we joked around happily afterwards. Snow and cold in dreams is about the “cold” types of behaviours people do when they are filled with ego and seeking power, not thinking of how they affect others but only going for their own best interests. A great way to deal with this kind of issue in real life with people is to become like a “positive avalanche” sharing an abundance of encouragement, support and enthusiasm. That’s what I’m doing when I work with prisoners.

My Dream About the Whale Show

This dream is from back in 2011ish but the interpretation is still so meaningful even today!

My daughter and I were at an amusement park and were going down to see the whale show. The bleachers were set up beside the ocean. We go down there and there are 3 orca whales that are interacting with the people in the front row. They are playful and beautiful. So magestic. Grace comes down and is in a great mood then she just jumps right into the water. I’m not concerned at first. I know she can swim. But then instead of coming up to me she swims farther into where the whales are swimming and even past them. A lifeguard jumps out to get her. The whole audience is hushed as they wait. The lifeguard gets her and brings her back. She had swam very deep and very far away. Never coming up for air but not appearing to struggle. I hold her and hug her and say ‘Oh my girl. I love you so much. You scared me.” She doesn’t understand what the big deal was. I don’t know what to tell her.

(In the time when the lifeguard is swimming out to her and the audience is hushed I am feeling ashamed that she just jumped like that and I didn’t protect her. I feel that the audience is judging me and that it appears she doesn’t respect me.)

Thank you Richard.

Dear Rachel,

It is nice to hear from you.    In the first dream you can think of yourself as your daughter, while in the second dream you can think of your daughter being you and it being her.

In the first dream [which appears in the e-book but not here in this short blog post] you (as your daughter’s age) want to speak, but you as the mother want to her stop in a violent way.   So you can say that you are violent with yourself from speaking out more probably in a positive way about the big dreams you have and the things you want to do.    The second dream is clearer about it.   You have 3 big dreams(goals in your life) which are symbolized by the 3 Orcas and at first you can just dive into to achieve them, but then you get fearful of going too deep and too far and begin to panic so you send out the rescue to get yourself back to where you are right now.

The way you are raising your daughter and leading your life is allowing her and you to have big dreams and to go for them but you are fearful of going too deep and too far so then you do everything you can to stop them even being violent as in the first dream.    The fear began at the current age your daughter is (age 6ish) and that is why you are violent to shut it down because you are so fearful that something bad is going to happen to her because something bad happened to you at that age.

So you can say that you are doing a wonderful job raising your daughter and that is leading her and you to be able to have big dreams and aspirations,  but there is a fear that something bad is going to happen that keeps you from going after the bigger things and thus encouraging her to bigger things.
As soon as you address the fear you can be thinking much larger about your life.

Sweet dreams

Richard
