I had another tornado dream last night. In this one – which I barely remembered upon waking – I saw a dark section of the sky, as you can see heavy rain falling amid lighter rain. It formed a dark band against the horizon.
Two funnels emerged from this dark area of heavy rain and moved left to right in front of me. One or more funnels then appeared and moved to my left.
That is all I remember. It seemed very real, of course, as if I was awake.
From previous sessions, I have seen that these dreams are not a “series,” and that the tornados are “entities” – symbols living in my dream world.
Yet, I am still left with a sense of discomfort. What are they? What does it mean when tornados appear in my dreams? They come so often. It’s like having a relative who keeps dropping in, but who I do not know at all.
You are not being very helpful. I’m sure you are aware of my feelings in the issue. Why can you not give me a straightforward answer? What do these tornados mean? What does it mean when they appear in my dreams?
It is like I have so much energy I want to go running and screaming.
(I suddenly envisioned Pecos Bill riding the whirlwind. Isn’t that how he disappeared forever??)
O.K. Now, at last, I have a better grasp of the source of the tornados. I sense that it has taken me so long to reach this point because I have been afraid to really pursue an answer. Is there a way that I can begin to use these dreams positively?
I sense that I am “tightly capped.” I feel things deeply, but do not – or cannot – express them fully. I would feel foolish, silly. And I have created confusion in others when I have let go, as it challenges other’s perceptions of me.
But I am uncomfortable and do feel foolish when I behave emotionally or act without thinking things through.
I don’t know if I really understand all of this, but I do now have something to think about. I don’t want to be perfect, but I also don’t want people to make fun of my shortcomings and/or inadequacies. So, I suppose, I do keep a lid on myself in this regard .... And it also keeps me from fully exploring alternate life situations in some respects.
This has been a productive session. There is so much to think about here. Thank you!
