What I have noticed about this practice is that it's
not always neat and tidy. You can let go of a lot of
resentment and anger and it can come back. I think a
lot of people get frustrated becuase they think the
process isn't working. I don't think it's like thath.
I just think that it's becuase we are not machines.
So, really, who knows where the dream came from. It
could have been old anger purging, or it could have
even been coming back! It's even possible hat you
haven't let go as much as you thought you have, and
that's what's being represented. Only you know
whether that's true or not. The question as always
is, what are you going to do about it?
