struggling dream

I dreamed that there were huge, big fat fish after me and I had to keep fighting them off/pushing them away but they didn't let up. All night long, it seemed, I was fighting them off in the house. Shaped like seals but were fish??

Re: struggling dream

Delsey,
Do you recall any emotions (positive or negative like frustration, fear, happiness, etc) during the dream?

The dream may describe waking conflicts that have continued for some time. Would the word relentless describe the fish? What in your life have you experienced or battled for a very long time that can not be resolved?

If you would respond perhaps we can take another look and get closer to the meaning.

Kind regards,
Kathy

Delsey - to be a little more specific...a person or persons that want you to do something you don't want to do? And if so, does whatever they want go against your conscious, feelings, ethics, etc. Thanks! Kathy

Thanks, Kathy, RELENTLESS IS THE WORD FOR THOSE CREATURES THAT WOULDN'T LEAVE ME ALONE AND THAT FITS WITH EVERYONE ASKING ME TO DO THIS AND THAT WHEN I JUST WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE AT THE MOMENT.

Re: struggling dream

Delsey,
Thanks for your response. It sounds as if you're stressed out from demands others place on you. Joseph Campbell speaks alot about this, and about living your own life.

These demands on our time and lives are difficult. Sometimes people don't like to receive a No. One MUST do and live what one feels is best for them, no explanations or reasons.

The conflict appears to be in what/how much is asked of you and perhaps? an ingrained or learned attitude of responsibility or duty to others. This could be a source of internal conflict. While helping others is an admirable aspect, too much leaves nothing for the Self. While I firmly believe serving others is an aspect of living the gentle life, BALANCE is necessary so we must too serve the Self.

Kind regards,
Kathy
