dreams of travel

What about dreams involving travel? I often dream that I am moving to the east coast, and its almost like I am floating above each state, I can look down on the states and decide where it is exactly that I want to go. Its almost like Im looking down onto a very very large map of the east coast. I am always way up high, seeing everything. I have this dream about the east coast, sometimes the Mexican coast line, and sometimes England. I've never been to England. Is this time travel?

Re: dreams of travel

It may be time travel in your mind but most likely is addressing some desire to be free to choose for yourself. Seems as if the dreams have to do with locations that have coast lines. Coast lines border the oceans and seas. This would symbolize the unconscious contents that are ready to be acknowledged. Are there any desires you have that have not been realized? Something you think about but have not put into waking actions? What associations do you have with the East coast or coast lines in particular?
I am drawn to the oceans. They represent the collective psyche. Anyone who has read my posts knows my great interest in the psyche.

Cindy,
When did you have these dreams of traveling? Was it before or after you changed careers? Perhaps you have already fulfilled that desire to choose for yourself.

Re: dreams of travel

I've had these dreams for many years, and yes even after I have changed careers. I had one just the other night. I started a my new job Feb. 10. Any its not really that much different from my old job. But my previous career was 22 years long. I grew up with it. Many times in these dreams while I am looking down on the actual coast line, the water is almost always a beautiful tourqois blue, but its always very rough, big waves etc. Im usually a little scared of it, maybe more in awe of it, but still drawn to it.

Re: Re: dreams of travel

Hi, Cindy. I have experienced similar dreams in a way. I have dreamed for many years on and off of searching for apartments near the water that are high up in apt. buildings so I can see the oceanview from the highest perspective possible. I interpret them to be my search of my place in the world, and one that can provide me the highest spiritual (emotional) experience. I have also flown and seen "maps". Taken this sample interpretation of my own dreams and transferring it to your imagery, I believe you are searching for your place also, albeit even higher than myself. In one instance, because your search is broader than mine, or perhaps mine has reached a more focused or pin-pointed stage. Does this click? The beauty of the color vs the tempest of the waters are obviously mixed emotions, i.e., new territory/new pursuits/change is always scary, but it sounds like your higher self is pressing to you: "But I want it!", which will invariable make you take the next step...sometimes (as I like to say) "a woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do! There is something that you have to take the risk at. This is the jumping off place, where the hero begins the adventure. I don't know how much you have read/heard of J.Campbell's and C. Jung's work, (funny, I just noticed their initials are inversed, hah!) but whenever there is a hero journey (a jumping into unknown territory) spiritual transformation is the destination. It is the journey to individuation or self-realization. Don't be surprised if you'll start getting some noticeably archetypal dreams. Gerard can recommend some reading/info concerning these if you are interested.

I'd like to point out too, that while career or jobs might be what this is talking about, i.e., vocation, life's work, etc., it may have absolutely nothing to do with your actual physical life, but rather, your emotional and/or spiritual life. It could very well be a calling to achieving personal freedom from ethical and other emotionally-charged influences that have been drummed into you by your family/peers/culture. You are being called to change/enlarge the landscape of your emotional/spiritual boundaries. Hope I've helped. Victoria

Re: Re: dreams of travel

Hi Cindy,
You have received some good aspects to look into. When I read your dream the thing that stood out the most for me was the longevity of your career, the image of coastlines and looking at things in a different perspective. You may want to investigate the word "coasting" with regards to your life, relationships and work. I'm only new at dream interpretation and may be way off the mark, but I have learned that many heads are better than one. I hope I have not offended you with this suggestion. Stephen.
