Dreamwork: How Am I Metaphorically Kidnapping & Drugging My Self?

08 May 2017

Well, in the dream, it begins when I’m enjoying a concert. I see the keys melting, which really defies the laws of physics and yet I figure out a way to stop it from happening. Then the keys come apart and even though I don’t have technical background in the key’s mechanics I still figure out a way to fix them.

This leads me to be in a car driving by a location where a crime is taking place.

Once I’m spotted, I’m kidnapped & drugged.

That’s the end of the dream.

My Dream of Getting High & How I Become Friends With Negative Emotions After Watching a Scary Movie

20 October 2017

Last night I did something that I haven’t done in a long time and which I knew would elicit a large degree of fear: I went to watch a horror movie with my daughter and a friend. They told me not to worry I would be fine but I told them every time I watch a horror movie I have nightmares. But I like working with nightmares because they give a script for overcoming fear and releasing really positive energy in life so I was willing to give it a go.

The movie we were watching was IT with the clown who chases children and can shapeshift into their worst nightmarish fears. Positioned between my daughter and my friend, within 4 minutes of the opening scene I found myself pulling my hoodie over my eyes and looking away. Within 7 minutes I had my headphones on and was listening to entirely different music, staring at the exit sign wondering if I should sit still and wait it out or go back to the lobby. I decided to stick it out and just listened to music for the next 2 hours and 15 minutes occasionally looking at the action happening on the bottom 1/10th of the screen which I could see if I tilted my head a certain way.

So I sat through the movie that way paying hardly any attention to the horror which was right before me which was largely invisible and inaudible to me except for the soul-shaking shrieks which filled the theatre.

In that way, I survived “watching” the only horror movie I’ve experienced since 1999.

Did I have a nightmare? … I did NOT!

I was ready for it but no instead I dreamed about getting high on pot for hours on end with friends in a room.

Yeah. That was my dream. Just smoking joints with friends in a room and getting more and more high by the minute. Later in the dream I went looking for something and I found Steve Martin in a room. He was emptying out his office and just throwing everything out. I joined him in dumping books, binders and papers into the trash.

What is getting high a metaphor for?

Its a metaphor for raising above challenges and issues. So my dream of getting high right after getting freaked out at a horror movie was about my own ability now to cope with negative experiences which I used to have to avoid.

Not everyone is too interested in doing things they know will bring out strong negative emotions but the thing with change and transformation is that the best way to get to the change is to do exactly that! By becoming friends with and embracing the negative emotions then change can occur.

The negatives are not to be avoided. They are to be embraced like a friend.

In that way, the negative can be processed and let go of and new strengths and skills can be developed.

So it’s not something I would do all the time, going to a scary movie just to listen to a playlist in my headphones, but now I know if the opportunity arises I have options and I also know I won’t necessarily get nightmares the way I used to. It’s pretty cool.

Nightmarish Dreams – Monsters & Mayhem, What To Do When They Show Up When You Sleep and How To Wake Up To the Gifts They Present

05 July 2017

Typically people seem to think nightmares are bad and happy dreams are good. Dreamwork takes the process of transformation to a deeper level by suggesting that nightmares are not bad at all.

While the feelings they bring up might feel “bad” they are not at all. They could be originally thought of as negative in nature, in the way that Anger is less advantageous than Justice, or Fear less productive than Courage. However, by shifting a focus away from the idea of “having to get rid of these bad feelings” and just listening to and understanding the message of the emotions, then some really great positives can emerge.

The key is to become friends with the negative feeling, not to shun it like an enemy.

In my dream last night a scenario showed up of a monsterous land-shark who was swimming ghost-like through a large forest attacking people whom I cared about.

The negative emotion this brought up was fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of being hurt. Fear of my loved ones being hurt. I solved it in the dream by being able to track the monster’s actions, predict where she was going next and then catch her in a trap. I knew right from the beginning that I was going to out-smart her but in the middle when she was harming people we loved it seemed like mayhem.

This is an example of how fear can be transformed into Courage. A monster in a dream is just a symbol for parts of ourselves which we are not familiar with yet. The unknown is scary because it is unclear at times but the more we become familiar with and become friends with the unknown parts of ourselves, others or situations than the more and more Fearless we can become.

Then we can accomplish anything in life and the possibilities for growth are endless!

Dream: Stalked, Drugged & Kidnapped by CIA gang

08 May 2017

I am watching a Coldplay concert, which if it were real life would be one of the highlights of my life for sure, and when I step out for a moment to the main lobby I check my keys and find the long metal part of the key is melting. It’s just softening and becoming bendy. I toy with it a bit and then it hardens again. But when I return to the auditorium it melts again. I realize it’s the heat of the room which is making it melt.

I go back to the lobby to cool it down. Now parts of the key have disassembled. I return to be seated with the audience and am working on fixing the key. I’m thinking about how if I don’t fix it I do not have a spare one to go home with and I’ll be stuck in this city with my friend who I carpooled with.

Then the key shaft breaks off entirely from the base. It really freaks me out but as I play with it more I think I can keep it together long enough to put it in my car. So I tell my friend I’ll meet her out there.

I go out and insert the key. It turns the car on but then parts of the car are not working and its riding down the street. I pass by a school yard and see people falling, teachers are falling to the ground. I wonder if I should stop and help or keep going. Even if I wanted to stop I’m not sure the car would. I decide to stop and just check it out.

But as soon as I do a street-clothed CIA operative grabs me from the car, covers my head, and brings me into a locked room. I tell myself that even if they drug me, that my mind is stronger than their drug, and in fact it’s true. Three or four men enter and do something to me which disorients me for a moment but I quickly gain control. I realize I’m naked and I locate my shirt and put on pants which are far too big but at least they are pants.

The guard on the outside of the door sees me and comments and I try to speak but find I can’t. It’s the effect of the drug so I just murmur the words and it appears he is like-minded and understands and is trying to help.

I get back into the bed to try to relax and try to make it look like their drug has been successful but then the three return. One puts a pillow over my head and one holds my feet down and one puts a needle into my left thigh. I feel the long needle deep into my muscle and I feel the effect of the drug buzz through my body. Suddenly I feel like I”m on a roller coaster ride and am zooming around.

But then I take control of my mind again, bring my awareness back to my body and realize they are still there in the room. I don’t move. They think I am unconscious but I am listening to what they are planning next.

Then I wake up.

The analysis for this dream will be posted at another time.
