bizarre dream

Okay. My dreams tend to be quite bizarre. I am watching the dream 90% of the time like an observer of others or situations. Two dreams that I have had the last 2 nights are

I am watching from an above window looking down on two odd, gangly, pale beings,they look like two gumbys. they are lying next to each other on a black blanket as though they are looking up at the stars. They have no expression on their face and they are staring right at me, it seems But they don't know I can see them (I sense this). I start to get nervous as one is starts to look at the other. In the next moment my heart is beating faster as though something is going to happen but I can't look away. One the the beings opens his mouth unbelievably wide, un-naturally wide and the other puts his head in his mouth and appears to be trying to get into the other being. Ultimately,the being engulfs the other. I am horrified but cannot turn aware as though I am being forced to watch.

The other dream I am again watching from what I have the sense is a wooded area. I am looking out toward an altercation between two men. On of the men sprays the other and his eye balls pop out of his head. I again am horrified but cannot look away while the man is clearly in pain.

I woke up with my heart rate increased in both of these dreams.

Re: bizarre dream

hapy2be,
All the 'beings' in your dream are aspects, parts, of yourself. Something has been 'shaped' within your unconscious {Gumby-made of clay} and wants to be opened to consciousness {window}. the 'two' may represent two aspects or it could represent conflict {opposites}, or both. The black blanket would suggest something you have stored in your unconscious {past experiences/influences} and it needs to be made conscious {looking up from the depths}. They have yet to be made conscious {no expression} but they are looking at you so to do so. Usually this type dream language suggests there is something withing your unconscious that has a controlling influence on your conscious life that needs to be realized. You 'sense' these influences are there but have not consciously realized what they are. To do so would bring about anxiety suggesting something negative in your past that still has a influence on you.

The beating heart is the truth in your life. To 'open up' consciously to these unconscious forces could consume you in a negative way. It may involve something you consider 'unnatural' or it could suggest it would be unnatural for you to let yourself open up to your past {do you tend to hold things in?}. If so this may be because of past experiences that cause you to have such a personality. I will note the language you use in the dream about putting 'his' head in other being {you] suggests a masculine prevalence. That could involve a real man or/and a masculine aspect {your animus}.

The second dream the wooded area could symbolize the unconscious {there are many symbols for the unconscious since so many of experiences in life have been stored there}. There is a conflict between masculine aspects, either animus aspects or/and two men in your waking life. Likely they are symbolic because of the language that follows but there still could be actual male associations. Spraying is 'covering' something and this need to be 'seen' and 'needs to come out' to consciousness so there can be a healing process [psychological}. This masculine aspect is in emotional pain.

What is it, past emotional experiences, you have put out of conscious thought because of the emotional pain it causes? i would think it is something very 'emotionally strong' since to open up to it could cause extreme emotional response. There is nothing in the dream that points to a specific experience or person although the masculine symbol could be about actual male. The fighting could be a real experience or it could merely be symbolic of conflict within yourself {involving masculine aspects}. Only you can determine what the exact emotional conflict is the dream is trying to communicate. Once you do open up to these emotional issues you can start a healing process. If you don't they will continue to 'haunt' you and be in your dreams, possibly more extreme in the future.

Re: bizarre dream

this makes a ton of sense. I can't place a person in particular but I do tend to approach life from a much more logical/ left brained perspective. The more feminine characteristics from this perspective definitely need work.

Re: bizarre dream

hapy2be,
Thanks for the response. A simple note but it speaks volumes. You don't need to state specifics. If my analysis strikes home and makes a 'ton of sense' then the work is done. As long as you can recognize the associations that is all that matters. Hopefully you can work on those feminine aspects to a positive conclusion. That is the message of the dream and the therapeutic intent, resolution of emotional conflicts.
