Interpreting Dream Figures

I’ve written about my personal dream symbology before in this post, about death and different kinds of crosses that have appeared in dreams depending on the kind of symbolic information being relayed. Now I’ve had a realization about the figures that have reappeared in many of my dreams and how I have most likely been misinterpreting who they are, and perhaps missing a larger point at the same time.

When I’m writing down my remembered dreams in the morning, I often find myself automatically applying a layer of interpretation that may be obscuring meaning rather than illuminating it. It’s the layer of my physical reality focus (rational mind, left brain, ego, whatever you want to call it) – whatever details from my ‘waking’ life that apply, as closely as possible, to the dream symbols.  Until recently, I wasn’t aware to the extent that I was actually doing this. It was more of an automatic function, choosing an interpretation with a ‘known’ label, whether or not it was truly accurate.

This tendency to apply my physically-focused rational mind to dream symbols seems especially obvious with the people that appear in my dreams repeatedly. For instance, if I remember a female with dark hair in my dreams, which I often do, my rational mind immediately assumes that it was one friend or another that seemed to fit the description, so I’d just write down the name instead of the description. And since I know many females with dark hair, I’ve found that I switch between them depending on what seemed to be more likely, all subconsciously.  Most of the time I haven’t been able to ascertain WHY this specific person might have been in my dream, and so end up dismissing it and moving on. But if I step back from the name or specific ‘rational mind’ interpretation of the raw data, and just write down the raw data itself, a female with dark hair, then I can start to see a larger overall pattern emerging. Not that dreams can’t involve people I know in physical reality of course, but I’m suspicious that they haven’t been appearing as often as I thought they were.

These dream figures are often in a supporting role, just ‘hanging around’ with me while I go through my dream and do what I do.  I’m often not interacting with them directly, except to know that they are ‘friends’, which also may be why I try to assign the identity of friends I know in waking life. Often they are just a step behind me to either side, so I don’t see them directly but more peripherally, but I know they are there and that I’m not alone in the current dream. Sometimes they even speak briefly to each other.  As far as I can remember, they have always been cheerful, and sometimes quite amused at what I’m doing.

Why has this realization suddenly dawned on me? It was a more recent, but still frequent appearance of a ‘friend’ in my dreams who did NOT fit the description of anyone I knew in waking life. And it was a slow realization; it’s amazing how clueless I have been when you consider in how MANY dreams this figure has made an appearance over the years!  A recent dream seemed to put a fine point on things when this dream figure walked up to me, smiling broadly, and looked right at me – so much presence and attention in the dream that I woke up. That’s when all of this started to come together.

For this friend, or guide, I’ve asked for a name, and received one in my head that seemed to be exactly right. And I know a lot of possibilities are currently opening up with this relationship, so the potential is rather exciting!

Maybe sharing my personal light bulb moment will help others take a fresh look at their own dreams.  The information or communication is already there – we just have to look at it the right way!

Matrix Code in Runes

I’m a fan of the ideas in the movie, The Matrix, as many of you probably are. I’ve had an idea for a fun design in my head for a while now and I finally got to creating it! It’s the green matrix code, but done in ancient Norse runes (like they’ve used in the Lord of the Rings movies too)! Here’s the design with details highlighted so you can see what it looks like:

I’ve added the design to t-shirts and things too, although it’s hard to see the details on these tiny images, but you get the idea – click on any image to browse all of the available stuff:

Impossible is Nothing

An old nearby plaza has an abandoned, or perhaps long-retired, trophy shop. Inside, through the dirty front windows, you can see a few small dusty trophies in the window case and the usual scraps, dust and trash on the floor. But the most interesting feature is on the front door:

I suppose you can either look on it as simply ironic, considering that the store is closed, and by all accounts has been for a while. Or, my preference, is that you can find inspiration in the least likely looking places! 🙂

REM Cloud – Twitter for Dreams

REM Cloud is like Twitter but for dreams. It seems like it’s not just a focused platform for sharing dreams (including perhaps lucid dreams or OBEs) with other people you know, but also for finding possible thematic or symbolic correlations with other people’s dreams and even possible interpretations.

I’ve signed up under my usual online name, so if you’re signing up at REMcloud and want to follow me (and me follow you), do a search for ‘foxvox’. Could be interesting! 🙂

Superconscious Relationships

A online friend, psychic, and radio personality, Margaret Ruth, has just recently had her book, Superconscious Relationships, published! I haven’t yet read it myself, but the concept is quite ‘conscious creation’, so I thought I’d do a little information sharing here so more people could find out about it!

Here’s the official book blurb: “Want perfectly satisfying relationships in your life? 1-2-3. Done. It is that simple to cut through relationship information clutter and realize the universal operating laws of how superconscious relationships form. By understanding the 100-0 Law and setting a goal to experience healthy, joyful and whole relationships, you will only need a few things to make your people connections a powerful engine of personal satisfaction and expansion. Enjoyable, provocative, witty, compassionate – this sage book debunks the widespread relationship myth-information and identifies new superconscious habits with exercises such as The 100% Accurate Indicator of What is True for You and other book features including case histories, exercises, visualizations, illustrations and insights from acclaimed psychic Margaret Ruth’s decades of successful experience with thousands of radio callers and clients. Start having more satisfying personal connections today. You simply have to be willing to experience Superconscious Relationships for yourself.”

And here’s a few words from the author about the book and her background: “I have been doing psychic readings in the Salt Lake area for over a decade now and am most well known for being a regular guest on the top FM station morning show. After so many years of doing relationship readings in a compacted, pithy, radio-friendly way, I have written up some bottom line relationship ideas for my audience, which is the under-40 demographic. As you will see, the book aligns with my Sethian and Conscious Creation outlook. The book is my translation of this knowing for a group that is not perfectly familiar with the concepts. My attitude is that most relationships experts and books focus on how to fix not-good relationships and that it is actually easier and better to simply aim to have healthy, joyful, whole ones and then not so many fixes will be necessary. “
