Dream: Hot blonde with Great Legs

imag0153

I dreamt I was working and ran into my buddy 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 that 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 went outdoor skating on a golf course that had ice trails lol that was my dream.

Whenever I see physical intimacy in a dream, even if it’s kissing or just making out, it is always a signal to me that the dreamer is getting a message from the dream about intimacy. I write more about this in 1008 Dreams & Solutions but here I can just say that sex in dreams, even kissing, is a SYMBOL for intimacy and is not meant to be taken literally.

Because I have worked with this dreamer for many years, I know him well and I know he is a trustworthy and inspiring guy who would never just start making out with some chick he just meets. I also know that the metaphor for being able to skate even in places you wouldn’t expect to see skating, like on a golf course, is a good metaphor for him. It means he can make the best of a challenging situation, mostly because of his optimism & his sense of humour, along with a certain adventurous and playful spirit. This also shows up as a symbol of being able to dance & sing even after a plane crash.

So what is the message about intimacy that this dream is trying to show him? What is the issue? And what is the solution which would allow for the plane to keep flying instead of crashing?

The dream points to a cultural issue about the way men see women. So that’s what I wanted to write about here. When men learn how to be more intimate with women in a way which is not all about kissing and making out then all relationships will get better and better.

The chick in this dream is bad ass. She makes great soup and she’s got a near-miraculous super-human way of creating just the right taste and flavour which involves doing something which involves physical strength, stamina, flexibility, accuracy, courage and a certain toughness. To kill a pig in less than 24 seconds with just the strength of leg power is quite a feat! This girl is amazing!

The right thing for the dreamer to do would be to just enjoy the soup. Or if he wants to learn more he could ask to learn how to make the soup with her. Then he could be out there being bad ass too, killing pigs with his leg powers. Afterall, it would be somewhat easier for him likely, given to men’s natural hunter instinct.

But no, instead of joining her in miraculous soup making he talks with her at lunch and gets to kissing her and making out with her.

That’s why everything went dark afterwards.

That’s why ice showed up in a recreational area like a golf course which is supposed to be enjoyed in warm weather.

He had the opportunity to learn to make bad ass soup with an amazingly beautiful, strong and smart woman and yet all he could think about was getting in her pants.

Now this was just a dream and like I said, in real life, this dreamer is not the kind of guy who would just jump to kissing some stranger. This is not about a real life affair. This is about a metaphor. The metaphor is there to show blocks to deep intimacy.

The real negative parts of the dream are really negative. Plane crashes in a dream are about devastation and loss of a positive future. Being in the dark and cold is about being or feeling isolated and alone. These are not the kind of states anyone wants to spend much time in.

In our culture, there is a common tendency for people to think that going for sex is a good way to eliminate feelings of lonliness or loss but in reality, the key to change and growth is about learning to feel strong within oneself no matter what is going on in the outside world. When there is a certain gentleness and peacefulness internally then all relationships are easier and really cool things can come out of it. The symbol of this is the really great soup that this cool chick makes.

So what can the dreamer do to solve this issue?

He can start by asking himself where in his life today does he have the chance to go for something really positive with someone and where or how is he holding himself back?

It would be good to explore the metaphor of soup. He can ask himself what does it mean to him?

He can ask himself – in what ways am I like that bad ass soup-making chick and what could I do to bring some of that adventurous and creative spirit into my life today?

In the end, what his dream is calling him to do is to be more like the soup woman – to have her agility and creativity. But he can’t do that so long as he is going along in this pattern which leads to plane crashes, and dark cold golf courses.

In order to have these qualities he will have to look at some of his issues around what is stopping him from feeling peaceful and when he can be more at ease, which might involve releasing some old fears, then he will find more and more opportunities to do some really cool things in his life which will be very nourishing and helpful to many others.

 

 

 

Daily Dream Journal – Helping others out of a fire

I see two planes crash in the night sky.

They fall onto a high apartment building which catches on fire.

I notice the building is just two blocks away so I start running to the building.

On the way, I see others calling 911 on their cell phones so I keep running.

When I get there I see the flames are still high and I can help people in the lower levels get out.

I start running through the building, banging on their doors and shouting “Fire! You have to get out! Fire!”

I see a young girl who goes to get her family. And an 80 year old man whose family help him, and others who hear my call and leave their apartment.

One family is moving slowly so I help with a young child, carry her out to a tree and then run back in.

As I’m on the stairs I’m thinking to myself, “This is so unusual that I do this. No one else does this. How come others don’t help others like this?” And I consider going back to the grass to wait for fire trucks like others do and I just can’t bring myself to ignore the people who are in danger.

I realize that I just don’t mind dying and I think that’s why I take the risk when others won’t. In that moment, I don’t even have a thought of my daughter. My life just feels so insignificant and I accept that it is better to help dozens get out even if it means I lose my life than for me to try to save my life and have dozens die.

So I decide to keep going.

One family is not listening and I have to shout at them, “You aren’t listening! There is a fire directly above your apartment. You have to leave now! It could cave in at any moment! GO!!” And then they start moving.

I continue until I hear fire trucks and see fire fighters start entering the building. I walk out and sit on the grass, exhausted and feeling like crying for how close I was to losing my life but how grateful I am that I made it out and so did many others.

Fire Dreams: Putting out the flames

Fire Dreams: Putting out the flames

In the dream I am walking with a group. There are ducks in front of us. One doesn’t follow the crowd into the garage and leaps up into the trees instead. At first the others mock her but then they join her. She shivers in the cold but the warmth from the trees comforts her.

In another part, someone tells me there’s fire on my clothes. we bat at it to douse the flames but it doesn’t work. Then I drop to the ground extinguishing the flame and roll a bit. They go out without anyone getting harmed.

Clothes in dreams is about roles. Fire is about enlightenment. I don’t know what more to say.

Dream: Fire in A Waste Basket

12596832_10156573581925595_2111687810_o

In the dream, I’m in a room with a group of people and I don’t recognize them but they are somewhat friendly.

I put a piece of paper into the waste basket thinking it is just a regular basket. But then I learn that the contents of the basket were warm like charcoal brackets and so the paper I put in starts to get warm and begin to get a flame.

Others get really anxious really quickly but I just say, “this is no big deal,” and I go over to the tap with the basket and pour water on it.

Fire out. No harm done. Everyone is happy. Everything is okay! 🙂

Two Dreams: Same Theme/Feeling

This morning while eating breakfast, Gracie and I were sharing our dreams.

It turns out they had similar themes.

Here is my dream:

In the dream, I am talking with Gracie’s dad and we are in a place like Fort McMurray. We have a plan for me to go to Ontario and then him to follow with her afterwards. I go to Ontario as planned and later when he arrives I begin conversations about when I will be picking Gracie up. At first he stutters, and answers in vague statements and when I press for details he gets angry. So he tells me he’ll work it out and hangs up on me.

In time, I call him back asking about picking her up. He finally admits to me that he left her in Fort McMurray, that he forgot her there. And he won’t tell me the location or the name or contact to reach her (maybe he doesn’t know it).

Then I get really anxious trying to find her. I am afraid that if I tell others I can’t find her that it will make me look bad. I am also afraid if I tell others what he did that it will be back-biting and make him look bad. So I don’t tell anyone a thing. It makes me appear anxious for no reason but in truth I’m just not sharing complex details to not make someone else look bad. To conceal the faults of someone.

I go to Gracie’s school to speak with her teacher and principal. They are  helpful and give me a few leads but they give instructions about walking through the school which is an enormous, futuristic-looking school, which is large enough to hold about 1000 students. I have to go up tall staircases, and down long hallways and through confusing corridors to get to the person who can give me the number to call in Fort McMurray to get help with getting Gracie back.

When I get to this location, which is in an upper level of the school which now looks like an apartment, I am talking to someone about solving this and getting her home.Then the fire alarm goes off in the entire building. My dad is there now and he grabs my computer case and says he’ll come with me. We start going down the stair but then I say I want to carry my own computer bag. Just then, someone who I know to have an issue with jealousy shows up on the stairs. She asks me, “What’s wrong, Rache?” with a condescending glance and when I start to tell her about Gracie missing, the huge maze-of-a-school, the fire alarm, the computer case I realize that she is not listening to be helpful. She is in fact listening to ridicule and tease me.

Because she has an issue with jealousy I know that if I just take my computer case and walk down the stairs she will feel like I am excluding her and she will get angry, and in her anger may lash out in revenge or to try to survive instead of me.

But I realize I cannot keep telling her details either as she has a horrible way of manipulating words to make me look bad. So I am standing there on the stairs looking at my computer case and the stairwell, listening to alarms going off, and wondering how to get past her without causing anger.

***************************************************************

Gracie also had a dream of being left alone!

Here is her dream:

She and her dad were walking a swampy outdoor location.

There were people there doing a puppet show of the movie Finding Dory.

He kept changing like a hybrid into a character called Moe from her book (who has qualities of being brave, taking risks, being secretive, and happy). Then they teleported to a big, dark building which was scary.

Inside the building was a lady making dolls out of cloth. They were voodoo dolls and they took on the face of people. If you dropped the doll then the person would really fall. Also, if you dropped the doll the whole face would go blank.

When they were in the building, the Moe character was with her.

They found an exit.

Then they went to watch the movie Finding Dory.

How interesting to have similar feelings (of being lost or losing something) show up in the same dream on the same night.

More details on the symbols in this dream are included in “1008 Dream Interpretations & Solutions” which is being published in draft chapter, by chapter, on this blog over time.
