Kate's Dream.

On our Facebook site, Medicine Wheel and Indigenous Dreaming - I came across this dream and this request from Kate. In response I promised her I’d write a short blog discussing the GENIUS of the dreaming.

FROM KATE:
Ok, I've got one for you...



I was lying in bed on one side of Mr. Miyagi (of the Karate Kid movies.) There were two other women on his other side. I got up to go put on a black bikini so that I could have sex with him. After I entered the first room in order to change my clothes, someone came in. So I found another place where I could change in private. Then I was in a room putting small menagerie type toy animals (like a pegasus with no front legs) into a box. But the box was also like a book. Each section/page had a few chess pieces in it. I would add a few animals, that belonged to my friend, then I would turn the "page" and open the next area which contained a few more chess pieces and add some more animals. 

Help me out with this one! PLEASE! ☺

For starters it doesn’t mean that because we dream a succession of pictures or events, that they necessary belong together or continue to convey one particular message. Have you ever had a conversation with someone where you keep jumping from one topic to another? Sometimes dreams are like that.

Obviously this first part of the dream speaks about touch, sexuality or what we call “the Mysteries.” This topic (so to speak) is described through the first few lines: “I was lying in bed on one side of Mr. Miyagi (of the Karate Kid movies.) There were two other women on his other side. I got up to go put on a black bikini so that I could have sex with him.” Just the character, Mr.Miyagi conveys the message that you are seeking for renewal in your sex life. “Where’s the excitement we used to feel when we first met?” --- type of thing! Time to spice up your sex life a bit. After all Mr. Miyagi is Asian and the East of the Medicine Wheel is about the start of ….. a story.

It’s interesting your dream decided to bridge the topic of sexuality through mentioning other partners (2 women) and a little black bikini. This obviously speaks of programs, fantasies, or issues, which could be explored to reach a point of renewal in your sexuality. There’s no doubt this scenario is saying: “Empower yourself with the FEMININE.”

The second part of the dream speaks about natural and cosmological influence. Right now we are living through the Moon of Surrender and the Wind of the Nomad. The Wind of the Nomad speaks of CHANGE. This month we are all being asked to surrender to change.

Notice what you share in your dream: “After I entered the first room in order to change my clothes, someone came in. So I found another place where I could change in private.” Basically, this section of the dream is telling you: “We’re all collectively being called to change but you need to center on yourself and what you need to be changing.” Again it’s about empowering yourself.

In the first part of the dream focuses on 2 women. The number 2 – brings us to the South of the Medicine Wheel. The second part of the dream focuses on a “changing room.” Again this brings us to the South/West of the Medicine Wheel. And finally, the last part of the dream speaks of animals or totems; which yet again brings us to the South of the Medicine Wheel. Obviously all three scenarios are different forms of the South anchor. The South of the Medicine Wheel is about “empowerment.” It’s about you and your truth, your tools, and your power.

The final part of your dream: “Then I was in a room putting small menagerie type toy animals (like a pegasus with no front legs) into a box. But the box was also like a book. Each section/page had a few chess pieces in it. I would add a few animals, that belonged to my friend, then I would turn the "page" and open the next area which contained a few more chess pieces and add some more animals.”

The idea of the BOX implies a container. What holds our fragments, our totems, our moons etc… is our personal Medicine Wheel. If I would dream a dream; which would want me to look at my inner totems within a container – it would show me a WHEEL (a tire maybe or a rope tied together) because I’ve worked persistently for over 25 years on the concept that I’m a circle. Our dream time uses the images that best represents us and how we perceive our world. Most Westerns for example, would represent the same idea by a BOX because we are indoctrinated to “fit in a box”.

As soon as there’s a box in a dream it implies that “you somehow fit in it.” It could refer to your thoughts, your emotions, your memories or your expectations etc…. In this case, it specifically speaks of animals so relationships or inter-relationships. Since your first dream speaks of sexuality and shows you within a scene with two women and a famous, wise Asian man there’s no doubt we are looking at “deep, intimate relationships.” This particular dream seems to be emphasizing the complexity of relationships.

• A. We all have our own box of stories and relations.
• B. We are all working on ourselves and our own personal Wheel.
• C. It’s not just ME connecting to others, it’s ME (a whole wheel of fragments) connecting to others and their whole wheel of fragments. A world connecting to a world.
• D. Reference to chess pieces – there’s also an element of play, pleasure and even manipulation around relationships. Again this would bring you back to the Mystery of Sexuality.

Even though your dream speaks of three distinct dream spaces it still follows the same theme: Sexuality, relationship and wanting to renew the feelings we have when we first start getting to know someone we’re interested in….

The reference to Pegasus may be short and sweet but it too shares a message. Pegasus is a Horse. The Horse depicts responsibility and freedom. I love the way your dream sent you a paradox to ponder on. Example – here you have a TOY HORSE that is missing two front legs. The idea of not having two front legs implies that this horse cannot be useful (can’t shoulder responsibilities) and can not run wild (freedom). A TOY is meant to be for games and pleasure this toy can’t seem to do neither in this case.

Just the image of Pegasus with two missing front legs sends the message: “Time to explore the idea of pleasure, freedom and wildness. You may want to balance out your responsibilities because they seem to be at the bottom of what you’re missing in your life right now.”

Kate – Great dream.

If anyone has any questions concerning the “dream interpretation”; the Medicine Wheel references; or ….. please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment.

Thanks Lisa, this is interesting. I will think on it awhile. In regards to spicing up my sex life, well...who wouldn't want to do that! My husband is Asian, so maybe he was supposed to be Mr. Miyagi in the dream. I remember pretending to fly the pegasus into the box, and laugh about him crash landing, because he had no legs. Could be about bringing humor and lightness to serious situations? I'll be looking at the South of the Wheel for sure. Thank you again.

Kate,

WOW! I had no idea your husband was Asian.
Mr. Miyagi no doubt represents your hubby.
I think the more you work with the dream the more you'll discover bits and pieces about YOU and your life. A dream definitely speaks to us at so many different levels.

Keep me posted on your journey with this dream.
The whole idea behind a dream circle is to learn about the dreaming -- together.

The Horse depicts responsibility and freedom.

Are you saying with this statement that the horse is about the balance between freedom and responsibility?

Dallal,

This picture was taken in Banff, Alberta just before the Golden Workshop in B.C. SO and I were taking pictures of the Wild Life in the Rockies. LOL We have a series of pictures that show the "unusual" around us. They are my FUN PICTURES series. Hope you liked it.

The reason why I picked this picture for this blog is because it shows IMAGERY out of the ordinary; that conveys a particular message. We are surrounded by dreams every second of the day. It's just a matter of paying attention to them.

And finally Mary Rose --- the Horse is about Freedom and Responsibility. It's an animal that carries our luggage (so to speak). It's an animal; which has always been used to "carry our belongings." In other words it helps us "with responsibilities." On the other hand, the horse also inspires us with the WILD. It runs free and shows us that life isn't only about burdens. Yes - in a way it can show us the balance between freedom and responsibility. It all depends on how we are being called to explore this totem....
