DREAM INTERPRETATION

Crow February 25, 2011

Filed under: Dream Interpretation,Intuition,Metaphysics — Jenny Turkyilmaz @ 10:03

Well I was at this Park, a familiar park. And there was this giant crow! About 50 lbs. The crow just kept talking smack to me, I don’t remember what the crow was saying exactly but it was pissing me off. So I started kicking it over and over repeatedly on the neck. Then the dream ended.

-Agustin M.

DREAM SYMBOLS:

park-subconscious mind

crow-habitual thinking in the subconscious mind, aka permanent understandings gained in previous lifetimes that are not consciously realized at this time

violence-destructive thoughts

neck-pertaining to the communication of the true Self and the use of will

DREAM INTERPRETATION:

At the time of this dream Agustin is connecting with subconscious mind.  He encounters a huge bird representing a large repository of knowledge stored but not being consciously used in the subconscious mind.  The idea is that we all incarnate into different physical forms over many lifetimes.  During each life we gain certain permanent understandings which are then carried forward with us into all future undertakings.  The trick is being able to recognize these understandings and connect with them in every new incarnation so that the full wisdom we possess can be utilized to help us further learn and expand and grow.  Agustin senses a familiarity in this park, as if he’s been there before.  The bird communicates with him, and Agustin becomes infuriated and begins to attack the bird in the neck.  This suggests that Agustin is rejecting his own inner wisdom and is actively attempting to deny it.  The fact that he is kicking it, using his feet to attack it, implies that the wisdom and knowledge being denied is of a spiritual nature.  Feet represent our spiritual foundation, and it seems that Agustin is using his current spiritual beliefs to deny truths he has already added onto the Self.  He is experiencing destructive thought patterns that are prohibiting him from truly connecting to and becoming aware of the skills and qualities he already possesses.   He might want to take a look at how he is using his will in daily life and also how he is expressing himself to others.  Is he honestly communicating his thoughts and ideas and beliefs?  Or is he denying some truth about the Self?

Shura February 22, 2011

Filed under: Dream Interpretation,Intuition,Metaphysics — Jenny Turkyilmaz @ 11:18

There was a sequence of rooms in a row with doors in and out of each.  I had walked through the shura room, which had a dirt floor and a circle of men in traditional garb conducting their shura.  They smiled at me and waved at me, parting a way for me to pass through.  It was very peaceful. I walked through the doorway into a regular room of soldiers.  A big cluster.  I turned to one Marine who was in his gear and had something pink, like a tshirt under his camo, or a scarf around his neck and tucked in making a vee. I turned to him and he leaned in to be able to hear me.  I asked him to say hello to my friend Jennifer from Julia.  He grinned and nodded and was agreeing when his eyes looked up beyond me.  I felt arms wrapping around me from behind, and smelled that it was her as she pulled me back into her.  She laid  her chin on my head, and I purred.  There was more to it after that, I think she took my hand and was leading me into the next room.  And then I woke up.

-Julia A.

DREAM SYMBOLS:

rooms-places in mind; where attention is being focused in the waking life

doors-means to move into different states of consciousness and places in mind

shura-(way pre-Islamic Arabic tribes made social/political decisions) a place in mind having to do with making decisions and determining course of action

men-in this instance these men represent aspects of superconscious mind; inner authority

soldiers-disciplined aspects of subconscious

clothing-how the dreamer presents self to the outside world

arms-purposeful intention, resolve to achieve

smell-perception received from directing the mind

Jennifer-known aspect of conscious mind

head-how the dreamer thinks

hand-the Self’s purpose

DREAM INTERPRETATION:

Julia is in a place in mind where she is aware of many different states of consciousness and ways of thinking.  She walks into a room full of men conducting a shura.  People in power positions and positions of respect and authority represent aspects of our superconscious mind.  Julia is connected to and aware of many aspects of her inner authority.  They smile and wave and there is a peaceful feeling, showing that Julia is on good terms with her superconscious mind. The men are wearing traditional garb from pre-Islamic tribal times indicating that Julia expresses her highest self to the outside world with a sort of ancient reverence, perhaps, or sense of ceremony.  These superconscious aspects are involved with decision-making.  Julia was likely making choices within the day or two before this dream and was using superconscious mind to help make them.

Next the dreamer moves into a different state of consciousness and sees many disciplined aspects of subconscious mind.  They are dressed like soldiers except the one Marine has something pink on underneath.  When vibrant colors stand out in a dream they indicate the dream is taking place in subconscious mind.  Lower level dreams may be perceived as black and white and gray.  The higher levels of mind may be experienced in pale pastels or shades of white.  The pink color suggests that Julia expresses her discipline to the world with an awareness of it coming from the subconscious.  She asks the soldier to say hello to her friend, Jennifer.  Julia needs to think of two adjectives to describe this friend in order to determine more precisely what part of her conscious mind she is trying to connect with here.

Arms, purposeful intention, wrap around the dreamer, and she notices a smell.  This shows that the dreamer is  able to perceive information and ultimately connect with this aspect of self by directing and disciplining her mind.  The friend puts her chin on Julia’s head, calling attention to the dreamer’s ways of thinking and indicating an alignment between Julia and this aspect.  Then the friend takes Julia’s hand and leads her into a new state of consciousness.  Hands represent purpose.

By connecting with superconscious aspects and disciplined aspects of subconscious and by purposefully directing the mind Julia was able to align with an aspect of conscious self.  She was then able to move into a new state of consciousness or way of thinking; perhaps one that will help connect her more strongly to her purpose.  Awesome dream, thanks for sharing it.

 

lotsa animals! February 8, 2011

Filed under: Dream Interpretation,Intuition,Metaphysics — Jenny Turkyilmaz @ 13:33

In my dream I was walking a toddler (girl) and a young mother to the car – they were going home after a visit.  They were catching a plane and needed to be on time.  It was dark outside, nighttime. As we were walking to the car, we saw a squirrel running from a dog – they ran past us with the dog hot on the squirrels heels.  Then out of nowhere, a bobcat was chasing after the dog and squirrel. They all ran around the side of the house to the back. We continued to walk toward the car, and put the child in the car and closed the door, but suddenly a raccoon came racing around the other side of the house toward the car – and right behind him, chasing him, was a wolf, the dog and the bobcat.  All were trying to get the raccoon.  The wolf pounded on the raccoon and killed it – and the other animals pounced on the body and they all started to eat it.  it was a pretty bloody mess, very violent.  They were blocking our path to the car.  I started to try to go around to get to the other side of the car, because the child in the car was crying and we needed to get to her – but when I started in that direction, the dog barked out a warning.  I understood the warning to be – don’t come near us while we are eating the animals, they will turn on you. So, we stayed back waiting, watching the baby cry – and then I woke up.

-Kristy G.

DREAM SYMBOLS:

baby girl-a new, developing aspect of conscious mind

mother-an aspect of superconscious mind

car-the physical body

nighttime-a lack of awareness

animals-habits in the thinking/unconscious thought patterns

house-the dreamer’s mind

killing-change occurring within the dreamer

blood-life force energy

violence-destructive thoughts

eating-receiving knowledge

DREAM INTERPRETATION:

In this dream Kristy is connecting with an aspect of superconscious mind and a new, developing aspect of conscious mind.  It is nighttime, so a certain lack of awareness in the thinking is being highlighted here.   Many different animals arrive showing that the dreamer had many habits in the thinking at the time she had this dream.   They are all running which indicates rapid mental motion, aka a racing mind.  The developing aspect is put into the car, implying that this new attitude or belief has something to do with the physical body.  Even more habits make themselves known at this point and they prove themselves to be destructive in nature.  A change takes place in one of the habits due to the destructive thoughts associated with the other habits.  Life force energy is lost.   Some knowledge is being received by the dreamer through the change that was forced in this habit.  All of this takes place outside near and around a house, suggesting that all these habits are related to Kristy’s subconscious mind.  The habits prevent Kristy and her superconscious aspect from connecting to the physical body, and the developing aspect in the car is in emotional disharmony with what has taken place.

Kristy may want to look at what was going on in her life in the days before this dream and see if she was feeling a certain disconnect from her physical expression.  She may have even felt especially physically drained due to a loss in life force.  At the time of this dream Kristy was at the mercy of many unconscious patterns of thinking.  I would suggest that she think about her understandings regarding her subconscious mind and would recommend that she try sitting in meditation for 15 minutes a day in order to still the mind and allow a greater level of communication between levels of mind.

 

big horse February 7, 2011

Filed under: Dream Interpretation — Jenny Turkyilmaz @ 13:56

There are four of us. Me. Mitch and a boy and a girl. Mitch is a friend of mine who lives in Austin. The children have no distinct features. We are on a journey. Mitch seems to know the path we should take. He is walking. I am riding a bicycle with the children. The path makes many turns and changes in elevation and terrain. We come to a high mountain. I can see the path switching back and forth up the mountain. I say I am not going to be able to ride up that. We will have to walk. And rest as often as the children need to. Mitch says that won’t be necessary. I look to our left and there is a stable with horses. Mitch knows the people of the stable. He talks to them for a few minutes and returns and says to pick out the one I want. I ask, only one. He says he will walk, the horse is for me and the kids. He asks if I am comfortable riding a horse. I say, of course. I look over five or six horses and then see a large pinto in a corral by himself. I ask if we can have that one. The stable man says yes, just let him loose when we reach out destination and he will return home. The pinto is saddled and brought to the street. Up close I realize he is the biggest horse I have ever seen. The stable man asks if I am comfortable with him. I rub the pinto’s neck and say yes. The pinto feels soft and smooth and strong.. I start to mount and see that his withers are even with my head. I grab hold of the saddle and hop a few times and jump up. I get my right leg half way over his back and as much as I struggle I can’t get any farther. I ask Mitch to put my left foot in the stirrup. He does. Somehow my right foot is now caught between my left leg and the horse. I try to pull my right foot free when the saddle begins to slip toward me. Mitch tries to push me onto the horse. The saddle splits in two and Mitch and I end up in a heap on the ground. The children laugh. The horse prances around nervously. I keep a grip on the rein. Through I am embarrassed, I see the humor as I see the look on Mitch’s face and laugh. The stable man comes to get the horse. Says it will take at least an hour maybe two to get another saddle. We go to a café to get something to eat. When we enter the café there is a long table to the right of the door. There are several men and boys eating breakfast. One of the boys is saying, no hugging and no telling me what to do. Mitch stops and says, that’s not how it works. The kid says, it does now.  Mitch says, we’ll see about that. The four of us sit at a table. We are looking at menus. Mitch gets up and approaches the boy and asks if he wants to join us. The kid says just because you are my father doesn’t mean I have to do what you say. One of the men at the table says, yes it does. There is general discussion about that, men and boys contributing, talking over each other. I wake up.

-J.B.E.

DREAM SYMBOLS:

Mitch– a known aspect of conscious mind described by J.B. as being smart & creative

boy– unknown developing aspect of conscious mind

girl– unknown developing aspect of subconscious mind

path– means to reach goals

walking– mental motion toward reaching goals

bicycle– the physical body, being used with great balance

mountain– obstacle

left– the direction left is related to memory, the past

horses– when they are to be ridden they represent will power. when not, they are habits related to use of will power.

stable man– unknown conscious aspect related to use of willpower

saddle/reins– tools for directing and using will power

cafe-place to receive knowledge

table-support for receiving knowledge

men/boys-unknown aspects of conscious mind. (Men are mature aspects. Boys are new and developing aspects)

menu-knowledge available to the dreamer

father-superconscious aspect, inner authority

DREAM INTERPRETATION:

J.B., Mitch, and the two developing aspects of conscious and subconscious mind are traveling together. Btw, the number four is the number of balance, a symbol that is reiterated here since the dreamer is on a bicycle.  He is using balance in his thinking and in his physical body to move toward his goals at the present moment.  The four people are moving together toward these goals up a winding path.  This implies that the way to fulfillment of J.B.s goal(s) is not necessarily simple or straightforward.   He relies upon Mitch, the well-known, smart, and creative aspect of self, to direct him as the going gets tough.  The path presents an obstacle to J. B. (the mountain), and he realizes that in order to be successful he needs to change how he approaches things.  He suggests that perhaps he should rely upon his mental motion in order to accomplish what he’s set out to do.  The smart and creative aspect informs him of an even better way and takes him to get a horse.  J.B. looks to his left, aka he looks to his past memories, and finds a reserve of potential will power there.  J.B. then connects with the stable man, an aspect of conscious mind heretofore unknown who deals exclusively with the care and maintenance of these representations of will power.   The large, strong horse that J.B. chooses shows us that he has great potential and high aspirations regarding the use of his will power.  He is unafraid and confident that he can use and direct it as he wants yet he finds the task to be a bit more daunting than he had anticipated.   Attempting to put his right foot and leg over the horse is not working for him.  Right is representative of looking forward to the future, productively creating, and being in alignment with Universal Law .  The feet represent spiritual foundation and legs represent how we move toward our creative goals.  J.B. again calls upon the smart/creative part of conscious mind in order to use the will power.  He gets his left foot (memories/past/spiritual foundation) into the stirrup but cannot make the forward-looking right side of the body work as he wants it to.  This suggests to me that J.B. is a bit stuck in old ways of thinking regarding will power and how he is going to create movement toward his goals.  Perhaps there is a reliance on or comfort in doing things the way he’s always done them that is no longer serving him well.  They laugh together, however, which shows an understanding of proper perspective.  He sees his limitation but it’s not the end of the world.  Instead of being upset or discouraged he goes to a cafe, a place to receive knowledge and understanding.  This is the proper perspective at work.  If you are stuck in an outdated, unproductive way of thinking, it’s probably a good time to learn a new way to look at things.  At the restaurant he connects with many unknown mature and developing aspects of conscious mind, all already receiving knowledge (food).  One of the developing aspects is acting a bit rebellious which in dream language is synonymous with being stuck in a way of thinking or stubbornly holding onto an unproductive thought or pattern of thinking. The four sit down, preparing to receive knowledge, and are looking at menus .  This suggests a certain level of reasoning and discernment in choosing the knowledge to be received.  The boy continues to rebel and states that Mitch is in fact his father.  This elevates Mitch to superconscious status.  He is, in fact, an aspect of J.B.’s highest self, his inner authority.  After this becomes known, open communication begins  between all the different aspects of self.

J.B. is certainly moving toward goals in the life and learning about will power and how to access and use it in order to meet the challenges before him.  He is likely stuck in some old ways of thinking, hanging onto the past in some way, that are impeding him in fully utilizing his will power as he wants to.  However he has a grasp of proper perspective and is ready and willing to receive new knowledge.  Through this expansive and seeking attitude he comes to realize that he is in fact in good communication with his highest self, his superconscious.  He has been perhaps mistaking communication with superconscious as something initiated from the conscious mind.  Once he realizes he is connected to superconscious mind, it becomes clear that some new, developing aspect of conscious mind is resisting connection with the superconscious and accepting it’s authority.  This understanding triggers the many new and unknown aspects of conscious mind to engage in free and open discourse about the value of information and direction coming from superconscious and perhaps even about how this might impact the idea of free will (which we all have).

 

sister February 6, 2011

Filed under: Dream Interpretation — Jenny Turkyilmaz @ 13:50

I dreamt that I was meeting at a grocery with my sister (who I don’t have) and officials over my chronically ill dad.  While I was cleaning up a mess he had made, my sis started selling her art.  I went to tell my ride I’d be awhile and saw my old boss take a parking spot he won’t be able to get out of in a green sports car.  My sister took off with me on her stilts and I tried to explain that I wasn’t done yet and needed to go back.  She had to go around a big city block (apparently you need room to turn around) and kept walking me into colorful Fall foliage.  I was pissed that I was going to fall off and hurt myself even though she said all I had to do was roll. Upon returning to the grocery, my sister had become so successful with her art that she had a counter in a side store and was selling these cool letterpress prints hands over fist.  We watched home movies in which she did Beetlejuice type performance art where she jumped into a turdworm suit. I was glad sis finally found her way.

-David H.

DREAM SYMBOLS:

grocery store-a state of mind for procuring, receiving knowledge

sister-a well-known aspect of subconscious mind

officials-likely represent disciplined aspects of mind in this dream

mess-disordered thinking

art-creative imaging

old boss-a known aspect of superconscious mind

parking lot-a place for physical rest/healing

car-the physical body

stilts-how the dreamer’s spiritual foundation creates forward motion in the life

fall foliage-fall symbolizes the completion of creation; moving into mastery and preparing for a new cycle of learning. foliage is subconscious mind substance

city-a state of mind where many aspects of self come together

letterpress prints-creative imaging

movies-imagination

turdworm suit-didn’t think this one was a symbol, huh? wrong. any clothing/costume in a dream represents how we chooses to present ourselves to the world. this represents an attitude held by the dreamer about how he appears to others.

DREAM INTERPRETATION:

David meets his sister in a grocery store.  He is connecting with a well-known aspect of his subconscious mind as well as several aspects of conscious mind related to discipline in the thinking.  They are in this place of knowledge to discuss his ailing father.  Parents in dreams are aspects of superconscious mind.  The fact that David’s father is ill shows us that David holds certain unproductive attitudes about his highest Self.  His father has made a mess which further illustrates unproductive, disorganized attitudes/thoughts that the dreamer holds regarding his inner authority.  Yet he cleans up the mess, which implies  he is taking steps to organize his thinking and eliminate certain attitudes that are no longer needed.  As he is doing this his subconscious mind is busy assessing the value of the fruits of her creative imaging.  By eliminating the unneeded attitudes and organizing the thinking David is able to connect with the value of his creative mind.

Next he sees his old boss parking a green sports car in the parking lot.  David needs to write down two or three adjectives with which he would describe this man, and it will assist him in understanding specifically what aspect of self he is looking at here.  Remember, subconscious and superconscious aspects are never negative.  If they are represented by people whom we perceive as being negative in some way, they are simply offering insight into the negative attitudes we possess that are perhaps creating a division of mind or creating dis-harmony in the mind.  At any rate, we know that the boss represents a superconscious aspect, and he is putting the physical body into a state of rest that the dreamer believes he won’t be able to get out of.  Perhaps David has a resistance to allowing himself physical rest or a place in mind conducive to physical healing.  Why exactly may be something he’d like to explore.  It may have something to do with his disconnect from superconscious mind and the unproductive attitudes he holds about it.

Then his subconscious aspect takes him on a pair of stilts.  At first I thought this might be another symbol for the physical body as they are tools for moving through life in order to receive experiences, just like a car, bike, small boat or plane.  Yet they also possess some similarities to shoes in the way they are worn on the feet.  Perhaps they represent both.  They are definitely a way to move toward goals, intimately connected to spiritual foundation (feet), and they demand a great deal of balance to be properly utilized.  I’ll suggest that by connecting with his sister (aspect of subconscious mind) that David is able to move in a balanced way toward goals and experiences with the awareness of an underpinning of spiritual beliefs and understandings.  He is fearful of falling, aka dropping down into a lower level of consciousness, but the subconscious tells him there’s nothing to fear, that he can easily handle the fall by rolling, by being flexible.  She takes him into fall foliage, showing him that he has some mastery in the subconscious mind, the part of mind where his permanent understandings and intuition reside.   This also implies that he is ready to begin a new cycle of growth for he’s reached a new level in understanding.

Back to the place for receiving knowledge, and the subconscious is now fully receiving the value of her creative imaging.  Then they watch movies, representative of how the dreamer uses his imagination, and the subconscious aspect shows David how he uses his imagination in creating the image of self he presents to the outside world.  The fact that it’s a Beetlejuice-esque turdworm costume implies that he may want to rethink his attitudes about his subconscious, how he is perceived by others, and how he wants to be perceived by others.  A misuse of the imagination is hinted at here.  He seems to downplay the mastery, the capacity for creation, & the value that he already has in the subconcious.  This may very well be the area in which the new cycle of growth will be focused; recieving self-value for the understandings and capacities already possessed.

What an awesome, informative dream.  David obviously has a great capacity for creative imaging in the subconscious mind.  Examining his relationship with his inner authority, the superconscious, may be beneficial as well as exploring how he chooses to present himself to the world.
