My dream was not as vivid this morning. I think it’s mainly because my morning routine has been messed up. I’m trying to get up early so that I can get a lot done in the morning. I aim for 5:30 or 6:00 but actually get up at 6:30, which messed with my dream recall.
HOWEVER, I’m determined to start looking at my dreams, and I’m not going to use my struggle as an excuse not to start. So, this is wrote in my dream journal:
Something about auditioning.
Something about being in a lower level. Through wall windows or spaces I see dangerous people approach from above (stairs?) I warn the female leader of our group a few times as I seem them approach closer and closer. She is not concerned. Finally, they come. I believe they are all male, and we are female, and they intend to be our captors and have their way with us. The guy who is matched with me does not seem overpowering, seems flexible, so I begin to take charge. That’s all I remember.
Symbols: (using The Dreamer’s Dictionary by Dr. Barbara Condron)
- auditioning — trying out/experimenting with imagination
- lower level of building — lower level of consciousness, possibly unconscious
- window — awareness
- females (unknown) — unknown conscious aspects of self (since I am female)
- males (unknown) — unknown subconscious aspects of self (since I am female)
- intended deflowering — potential refusal to receive what the conscious mind is offering (since I am female; it is different for males)
So, it looks like I am trying out the use of my imagination, but I’m not really conscious of it. I have some awareness of my subconscious trying to manifest through me, but I am wary of it and rejecting it.
Connection to the last 24-48 hours
The day before I was mostly tutoring/prepping for tutoring, and I watched part of Inception. The day before I watched an awesome documentary: Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds. I also watched some documentaries on dreams, blogged about my intentions to share about my dreams, and listened to some great metaphysical discussions.
Perhaps the dream refers to my desire to share about my dreams and get connected to my subconscious. Perhaps I am not as committed to my subconscious as I would like to believe, and I am unconsciously sabotaging it by not getting up on time in the morning.
It may also refer to my struggle with my thoughts. My new affirmation has been: “This is the best day of my life!” But I’ve lost some momentum with that. When I used the affirmation, my days actually were pretty wonderful.
Finally, it may also refer to my desire to be more creative — more journaling or sketching — but not actually doing it.
Tomorrow I will wake up at 5:30am. I will make sure I sit up and record my dreams immediately. Then, I will proceed with my planned morning schedule, including journaling/sketching. I will continue to observe my thoughts, being thankful for everything in my life and affirming “This is the best day of my life!”
Subconscious, I am ready to receive!
