Analyze Tony

Last night I had a recurring dream: I was zooming around NJ in my Jetta (most times it's my deceased LeBaron Convertible- sniff) At some point I lose control, but before I crash, I get it back again. I know, there's the obvious parallel to my life- but can anyone come up with something more interesting?

Two nights ago I had an interesting variation: instead of night, it was day, and I was riding all over on my childhood bicycle. (The ugly orange one- not the 10-speed I had as a teenager.) I kept adjusting the handlebars, going hither and yon. Instead of losing control, however, I felt the chain slipping here and there. I got off to see what was the matter, & saw that some of the gear teeth were stripped. I thought of going on, but I was in front of my parents' house, & I thought I should go in because I hadn't seen them in a while, & their feelings would be upset if I passed them by. Odd.

The second means there are a few old 'not so much issues' but 'truths' you need to tell your parents. It will make them feel better and you know it which is why your bicycle is not the 'good' one.

Hellcat said...

Oh, and the missing gears mean you have 'slipped' the 'truths' to them (and they already know) but they need to hear them straight from you ...

You are a puppet of the gods a la Clash of the Titans, and at least one of them is having fun with you. You're their own Matchbox toy. *G*

Okay - feel inside what makes sense to you... but here are some ideas...

Recurring dreams are either anxiety dreams or past life issues.

If its past life I'd say it was also ancestral (because of your parents) but maybe much further back than that.

Given that you are only slightly out of control on the childhood bike I'd say you weren't having too much difficulty with this whole issue (whatever it was) when you were a child... but you were a bit uneasy and that's because your ancestors / parents were going to be upset by whatever it was.

Now you are grown the issue needs addressing.

I'd suggest that you ask for a dream guide to help you take this to the next level and that you sort the whole thing out in your dreams. Ask that you get the healing there.

How's that? More interesting? Or not...

I don't have deep insights, but I do know that ugly orange bike!

love, me

Hellcat said...

Oh Dear Caroline has almost (apart from it not being a 'big' issue) said the opposite to Hellcat. Tony knows best, but the recurring dream could be a pattern in life extended from these 'old unsaid truths'. Although not big ... resolving will change the pattern from now on and is a good thing. Heehee!

Trying to make too much out of dreams eh? Vehicle dreams are usually about me, my life, where I am going and also my body, all a rather personal interpretation...get in gear!

Thank you all for your suggestions. The car one is obvious to me- my life is going fine, it spins out of control, I get it back on track. As far as the bicycle goes, it's probably just a slight derivation. As far as enlightening parents about truths, I can't think of anything- though personally I think it's sometimes best to let sleeping dogs lie. It's even better when the sleeping dogs tell the truth.

Sleeping dogs telling the truth? I am anxiously awaiting a short film - La Rocca style on this subject...

I think yer itchin' for a roadtrip, Tony.

Don't get an RV, though. Make it a stationwagon, and bring along a tent for the kiddies.
