Daily Dream Journal: A Flying Van

In the dream, I was going somewhere grand with a group of people. There was a lot here which I now forget but the thing that sticks out in my mind was that as we were moving from one area in the field to another I saw a van drive across a field and then start to fly. And I suddenly recalled that I had seen this a number of times. I told the person with me, “This field must be a portal into another dimension where vans can fly.” And they thought so too.

There were other parts of the dream where I was dealing with someone from the past who had an issue with jealousy but it didn’t seem to cause me much stress.

University Dreams: A Symbol of Learning

In the dream, I’m on a university campus and at times I’m also talking to someone about being on a university campus. I tell them that I go there to meet people, to research, to explore, even though I’m not a student anymore. They say they do the same thing. 

In another part of the dream, there is someone with me on campus. They have half-way bought into a project we are working on but also are considering abandoning the project. I offer a hug and reassurance but they are not sure they can keep up.

In another part I was telling people about how dreams about the body are a message about something which will happen in the real waking life of the individual soon. It means a powerful emotion is coming up to be released. 

When someone wants to give up on themselves in real life, I often try my very best to reassure them. It is usually fear in one form or another that forces people to think they want to quit on something. They’ve pushed themselves as far as they can go, then they face a fear, and the worry that something bad might happen draws them back into their old way of being and that means they abandon the project or commitment they had.

In real life, in the past, when I noticed someone coming up against a big fear and wanting to abandon the project, I thought it meant they wanted to abandon me. As a result, I too would abandon the project and get into conversations with them about what they would prefer, what would be less scary, or how should we change things.

But what I’ve learned is that, if someone has come to a fear and does not want to have the courage to move through it, they not only abandon the project, but they abandon the audacious self that got them there to begin with, and they often abandon me too mostly because they feel ashamed of what they have done and embarrassed that they can’t go further.

This dream of a university is a reminder to me of a skill I’ve had since childhood to keep learning even if others abandon the project.

A university is a symbol of learning.

Since I was in the field, an open space, it is a symbol of having an open mind.

Since I offered a hug to someone it means there is an opportunity in real life to offer reassurance to others.

 

DREAM: Run-A-Way Bus/Truck

– on a bus and see the driver fell asleep, I try to move his hands to the steering wheel but it doesn’t work and he isn’t waking up. There is a construction truck right ahead of us. I put my feet on the breaks and steer we miss it and don’t crash but the bus, which is now like a truck is going too fast and breaks don’t work. we go over hills. I tell everyone to hang on Gracie and 3 friend are in the back. we go over several hills and finally stop.

– In a park, I find some evidence of something on a picnic table, is a coin and a baggie of sorts. I ask Gracie to bring it to the police and she does and they come over. At first I feel tremendous fear that they suspect me but then they come around and thank me, ask me more about what I’ve seen, and I share with them.

– I’m playing a game similar to tag with people who are all 12 feet tall. When we stop running we stand in a circle. They are all SO TALL! They say lets not play because they don’t want me to feel bad but I say no it’s okay. They don’t mean any harm even though they are tall.

– I’m in house. People knocking/banging on the door to come in. Like a small group of high school Italian boys who think they are very tough. I ignore them but someone else lets them in, then I follow them because I have a sense they are up to no good

– Gracie and I are outside going somewhere walking on a street. It sort of has the feeling of a parade. Then a news broadcaster comes up and starts asking questions & videoing us. It has to do with the evidence we found. I’m happy to speak to them but want to know what they want to hear. It makes it a bit awkward at first but then we figure it out.
