I don’t know if I have permission to share about my sister’s dream that she recently shared with me. So, I’ll just say that it was unique and cool. 🙂 My dreams this week progressed from being an adult in an elementary school classroom to a substitute teacher in an elementary school classroom to getting the house ready to have people over.
Translation: Needing to learn an overdue lesson –> Experimenting with getting back my inner authority –> cleaning up my state of mind in preparation for interaction with different aspects of myself.
This morning I had a dream smorgasbord. So, maybe it’s good I’m running behind this week; I’m looking forward to working with these.
Here they are (not necessarily in this order):
Dream #1: I’m driving. There’s a dogwalker (female) in the left turn lane where I intend to turn. Sh has TONS of dogs. One gets away and is running across the street. I watch it with concern. It doesn’t get hit. I make a VERY slow stop and slow left turn to avoid the dogs and walker. Conditions are bad, too. It’s snowing and slushy. When I turn to go up the street it’s a hill, and there are HUGE vehicles in the road that are attempting to pass each other, driving in my direction. They look like the hockey rink machines that put down ice; HUGE. I swerve around to avoid them.
Dream #2: Something with me and Golbahar. Someone in the bathroom. She knocks on the door and sends them off to do something (answer the phone?) because maybe there’s no one downstairs to do it.
Dream #3: I am looking through textbooks, and I find one that is from one of my tutoring students. (A boy or his sister.) I try to figure out which one it was. It is the boy because it is a 5th grade math book. The reason I’m interested is because there is a $55 bill sticking out of it alike a bookmark. I think that is a weird denomination. I check it, and it is indeed real American money. I now say (to whoever I’m with) that I have a dilemma. But I decide the best thing to do is mail it back to him. I am happy I will be reconnecting with him. I see lots of writing in the front cover when I check it. Some swear words. This is a huge stack of bank slips that I could send with the money (maybe belonging to his parents?), but I decide not to. They will require extra postage. I’m sure the mom/dad can get more. Slips seem to have lesson notes on the bottom; blue pages with lines and comments. I see a note about snacks. I write a letter but then decide against sending it. It turns out the money actually is yuan. I’m not sure how much it is worth, but in the dream I have now assumed that it will be useless to the boy. It is two-sided. One side is green, which could be a mistaken for dollars. The other side is yellow.
Golbahar finds my original letter (one I had started but not finished, maybe crumpled). She asks me what my purpose is, like the letter is unclear. I go to get the actual letter to show her (in envelope?)
Dream #4: Something about a girl created a show and she realized that only one of the actors could actually sing. She wondered why she did this. A singing/dancing sequence follows, and the individuals mostly lip sync, and they are terrible at it.
Dream #5: Something else with a play . . . learning part?
Dream #6: A picture is being taken. Group shot(s). I try to kind of hide. Photographer is annoyed with me. (male?)
Group shots with lots of people. Trying to fit in with group shot. Different gatherings. I’m not sure when to smile. My smile is goofy.
Dream #7: Teeny tiny “badger.” in house. Bowser checks it out. (I think he wants to eat it, but he stops.) I wonder if the badger got him. Clear long quill has gotten stuck in Bowser’s nose. (Badger sting!) I try to carefully and quickly pull it out and get part of it off, not all. Now I feel I need to get the badger out. Increasing in size?
Wow. . . I forgot how much I had here. Let’s see. Dream #1: I’m headed in a particular direction, but I’m facing difficult conditions. I’m slowed down by many habits and huge. . . somethings! Since the dream seems to be about challenges (the hill, the slush, etc, the snow suggests being stuck.) So, I think it’s about trying to take a positive, decisive direction in my life but finding myself slowed down — and even stuck — amidst habits, challenges, and environmental circumstances. Makes sense.
Dream #2. I’ve got a subconscious aspect, a place for cleansing, and some unknown aspects that may be dealing with communication and different levels of mind (downstairs). I would guess that it’s telling me I need to be available to receive communication between levels of mind.
Dream #3. Yikes. Well, what really sticks out to me is the 55. I’m really into numbers. Money has to do with value and “5” is “reasoning” in a dream. Last night we focused a lot on reasoning in class, so that only makes sense. A summary of the dream seems to be that I receive a tool for information /information — at a lower level — that includes something to do with value and reasoning. I’m not sure what it really is, and I’m confused about the value. I eventually recognize that it is not as much value as I thought and not as useful (since it is the wrong currency). I am also originally intent on doing the “right thing” and returning it to a developing subconscious aspect of myself. I’m excited about connecting with this aspect because our connection was severed. I would describe this part as impulsive/impatient and brilliantly creative. I have even prepared communication with it. I later don’t go through with the communication when I decide the bill is useless. There is something about communication and value again with the bank notes, which also ties into productivity and taking in knowledge. But I do not see that as important. Finally, my superconscious gets involved, wanting to know about my purpose in the communication. But she has grabbed the wrong communication, so I update her. Most importantly, I can’t identify “reasoning”, and I’m confused about its value. My impulsive/impatient, brilliantly creative side may be the connection.
Dream #4: I am attempting to create harmony within myself, but I have not chosen the correct aspects to do it, so it is not working out perfectly. . . That may have to do with understanding myself part and getting aligned within.
Dream #5: I am preparing for some sort of creativity, imaginative work.
Dream #6: The use of memory. I’m involving many aspects of myself in this, but I am not putting my whole self enough in the picture. (Maybe related to our class conversation or our visualization exercise.)
Dream #7: These animal-on-animal dreams are confusing to me. I should ask about those in the next Dream Webinar. I have two habits here. One is one that I love and am very comfortable with. The other is unknown. I can’t even recognize the animal for sure, it doesn’t look like a real life badger at all, and the size keeps fluctuating. I think there’s something significant in the stinger/quill and the nose. The nose is part of the face. It may be part of a human’s expression, but for a dog it is a main means of receiving information. The quill is a protective/aggressive measure Perhaps I was using one habit to explore a new/unknown habit, and there was some resistance. However, after I saw the damage done, I wanted to get rid of the habit.
Dogs showed up twice in my dreams. The main unproductive habits I’ve been facing lately are lack of confidence/insecurity; bossiness, worry, lack of purpose, and stubbornness. These have impeded my journey . . . but I’m not sure which one is the badger.
Happy dreaming tonight!
