- I haven't had any earth-shattering dreams lately. For that matter, I can't
remember any that I had last night. :o( I must have been *really* tired! I
do have a question though. Does anyone know of any books that help you
analyze your dreams? (Without entries like:
"cherry: Watch your purse!" or something stupid like that). I have a great
book called "Cloud Nine". It has mythological symbolism, Freudian views,
Jungian views, Estes(ian?) views, archetypal symbolism, etc. It has very
broad SUGGESTIONS, as opposed to most books that TELL you some phony
prophetic meaning to your dream. I have always been pointed in the right
direction with my book.
I heard someone mention a book called "The Dreamer's Wheel" or am I way off?
My other question concerns reccurring themes in dreams. I don't have
reccuring dreams, but there are two people who OFTEN appear in my dreams.
One is a girl in elementary school that used to pick on me. In grade 5 I
went through my own little hell when everyone in my class and then my grade
made fun of me all the time. I used to get hate mail... But this one girl
was always "mature" about it. She was sort of like the leader, though it
wasn't obvious. She was intelligent, liked and her way of hurting me was
always manipulative and planned. She didn't just laugh at me like most of
the other girls. But a few years later, she tried to be nice to me. We went
to high school together and she would invite me to her parties and try to
get me to have fun.
In my dreams, she is always befriending me.
The other is a woman I worked with last summer. She and I were partners at a
daycamp, taking care of the 6-7 year-olds. To sum up a nightmarish summer; I
came up with all the ideas, which she knocked down profusely. Then when I
left the control in her hands, she just simply blamed the kids for
everything. She did everything in her power to make me look bad, which
worked with our gullible coordinator (who was younger than both of us!!!).
She was a manipulator who made my summer hell. She never smiled, the kids
didn't even like her, UNTIL: For the end-of-camp performance, she organized
it so the girls danced the macarena. She bought them things to wear in their
hair and got them gussied up, so they LOVED her. It made me irate because I
worked SO hard to keep the kids active, happy and stimulated, when all she
did was take credit for my work and turned everyone against me. She couldn't
even handle them by herself. But I could. Our coordinator amazingly only
ever asked her to help out with things when it meant taking her away from
our group, because she knew that I could handle the kids alone.
Sorry to ramble, obviously I'm still bitter and that shows in my dreams. She
is usually in my dreams when I screw things up, giving me a hard time, or
insulting me. I dream about her at least once a week, and have for over a
year. The dreams are never good, except for one. (In a recent dream she was
nice.) I know *why* I'm dreaming about her, but how does one resolve the
issues so that the dreams stop?
Thanks for reading!
