A recurring dream

So, I've been having this dream twice a month since I was 13 years old, when I lived in Tennessee, USA. It would come at the first of the month, and then towards the end of the month.

It starts out with my floating in a clear, blue sky, and I have grey wings. Then, out of nowhere, it begins storming something fierce and two men appear. One has black wings, clothes, hair and eyes, and the other has white. They begin to fight and at first one or the other would win and my wings would change to that color and I would go with them.

Then, when I turned 16 it abruptly changed. Instead of one of the two men winning a woman with black hair styled into ringlets, golden wings, and purple eyes would appear, kill them both with ease and say "Leave my daughter alone."

When I was 17 I would start to follow her to this gorgeous mansion. Ivory, and gold, and marble all around, and she'd turn to me and open her mouth as though she were about to say something, but no words would come out. Instead, she'd have a knife sticking out of her through the heart, stabbed through the back. When she would fall, I would see a woman wearing a mask.

Then, when I turned 19, the mask would fall off for no reason, revealing myself. The "other me" would look at me and say "We are what our past makes us." and then I would wake up.




When I was 14, I moved from Tennessee to Florida.

Whenever I wake up from that dream now I feel uneasy and disturbed. It makes it hard for me to go back to sleep.

Re: A recurring dream

Hannah,
In your posted dream you give your age {under Gender/Age/Location} as 13. This must be a typo since in your dream post you have various ages up to age 19. I will need your current age to finalize my analysis. Please post it at the Dream Forum and I will provide an interpretation.

By the way. I am from Tennessee {Nashville} also and moved to Florida {now in Cocoa} in 2013.

Re: A recurring dream

I'm sorry, I misread what it was asking for. :) The proper ones are, 21, (still) Female, and Florida.

Re: A recurring dream

Hannah,
Because the best a trained dream analyst can do is provide a good outline of what a dream{s} is trying to communicate, in your dreams I sense conflict between two choices but I am having trouble pin pointing what they are {even in an outline}. Let me state what i sense and then you can respond. That may provide clarity to what the dreams are trying to communicate.

My sense is there were two things happening when you were 13. One was the forces of nature where your emotions were 'high' {an aspect possibly related to puberity} combined with a personality that tried to pleased everyone, as well as being in a position where you were being persuaded by certain people {male}. You were being pulled by opposite forces {possibly male} and had to make a decision which to go with. There was a conflict between these two persons and you would in one instance had to go with one choice but in another had to go with the other.

age 16
At the age of 16 things changed {emotionally if not literally}. Something or someone intervened and you were saved from having to make the previous choices. It could have been your own maturity and/or a female.

age 17
At age 17 you wanted to trust your own instincts and find positive aspects within your life but you still lacked the capabilities or opportunities to express your true desires and be where you wished to be. You were still having trouble in achieving your true desires because of pressures placed on you {perhaps by yourself}. Part of the trouble was with those who you wanted/needed to trust but emotionally you were afraid of being betrayed. There may have been a woman involved or the 'she' could have been your own emotional self which was highly charged which left you unable to properly achieve the goals you really wished for.

See where the above would fit in the ages you gave and overall. Personal experiences are seldom spelled out in dreams but the emotional energies that are related to the experiences are. Your response should help clarify what the dream messages are.

Re: A recurring dream

When I was 13, that's when I started having doubts about the religion that had been forced onto me since birth, Christianity. I didn't want to dissappoint my mother, but I felt like I was betraying myself by staying with Christianity.

When I was 16, I finally came out to my mom as being bisexual and Wiccan. And I felt like I freed myself for the first time in a really long time.

At 17 my mom and I had a rather large argument, and things with her changed after that. I once again doubted my ability to make decisions.

And when I was 19, I was finally fed up with her, and moved out of the house, and in with my dad.

Re: A recurring dream

Hannah,
Your response pretty much fits with my analysis. As i stated in the beginning of my analysis I can only outline the emotional energies in a dream and the exact personal experiences are left to the dreamer to name. In my analysis I stated you were being pulled by two forces. One of those was spiritual {of the two I pointed to}. There was the conflict with your mother which could be one {there could be others}. The personality would be a part of the spiritual and when you can not be your true self there is a betrayal.

At age 16 things changed {both psychologically and literally} You 'came out', literally telling your Mom you were bi. What intervened was your true self. You became your true self.

At age 17 you wanted to trust your inner self/true instincts but lacked the capabilities to do so. This would fit with the self doubt you posted in your response. The woman was both your mother and yourself. Self doubts and your mother left you unable to achieve those things you sought.

For some reason i didn't address the age 19 experience. But the mask is what we wear in our perception of ourselves as well as what we wish others to perceive us. This is not our true self and it must come off to reveal the 'other you', your true self. "We are what our past makes us." This is true in so many ways. Psychologically it is the foundations of early life. The environment in which we grow up is central to who we become. Most people never realize that these early life experiences become motivators for personality and actions later in life. Experience is what make us who we are, who we become.

Although you have had a tough path to travel you are fortunate to have discovered who you really are {bi} and have begun to be your true self. I would be interested in analyzing a recent dream to see how well that has turned out.

Re: A recurring dream

I could certainly put another one up. Would you like me to make a new topic for it, or just post it in here?

Re: A recurring dream

Hannah,
Post it as a new and separate topic. Each dream is a learning tool and it is easier to keep up with by topic. I often refer back to earlier dreams and create a link to it. Sometimes the dream subject goes in another direction but usually related to the issues in a previous dream. They tend to reveal more when you post consecutive dreams, you unconscious understanding there is work being done to assist the nature's intention of helping the dreamer resolve emotional issues {the primary function of dreams}. In your dreams there is already a progression and now at 21 they {dreams} will point to your psychology as it is now as well as in the past {the past affecting your current status. Dreams are about how you really feel about yourself and the world around you and the more you realize that was not previously known the better you can deal with it and hopefully resolve the conflicts.
