BehindtheAegis or anyone--last night's dream...
was so bizarre, I don't know what to make of it. So if anyone would care to help me w/interpretation again--I'd appreciate it. I'm working on some of the symbols now--but I'm stuck.

Dream--

1) at one point I found myself being whisked away, upside down on some sort of bungee cord. I was dangling upside down--high above everything. I was worried that my eyeglasses were going to come off and fall into the water down below me. The water was murky and kind of dark.

2) I was riding on a train. It was kind of like a monorail system of some sort.

3) while on the train, I saw our sister in law was there (in real life--this is the ONLY one of my husband's sisters' in-law that I like and have any respect for.)

4) later someone was raping me on this train. I couldn't see who they were. I don't know how the attack started, I just had the feeling that I was being raped.

5) just as suddenly--our sister in law saved me. I don't know how at all or even what she did to rescue me. I just had the overwhelming sense that she had saved me somehow and I was overwhelmingly grateful and thankful toward her.

Bliss

1. This is what I have so far--
Being upside down, could mean there is a situation or problem in my waking life that I need to 'straighten' me. Or it could mean my initial assumptions about something were completely opposite what I thought.

I was fearful of losing the eyeglasses that I was wearing at the time of being swept upside down--losing them in murky water.

My thoughts are that this dream is still a reflection of what I am dealing with. I've been conflicted about school starting, going back at my age, returning after so long and starting on a completely different path than I was on before. Also about starting at a different school than I've attended in the past.

I feel I need to pursue the artistic path to put me upright again. Something is telling me that there is something that I am incapable of seeing about it right now--that it will do more for me than I know.

In the past, I was always told that art was a true path to starvation and ruin. I am choosing to no longer believe that. I have found this is far from always being the case. A part of me feels very betrayed that I allowed myself to be swayed by this in the past--instead of following my heart's desire.

I have more on my interpretation--just saw something on news I need to take to the boards at large....be back later! :)

2. Always follow your heart and you can not go wrong dear one...

You quote,

"In the past I was always told that art...... A part of me feels very betrayed that I allowed myself....."

I believe, however..I am no expert on dream interpretation, that this might be the part referring to being raped/violated/taken advantage of/ used, etc. You say your sister-in-law rescued you? Have you talked with her about your feelings or desires/dreams now or in the past?

Light & Love to you in your search!!

3. Actually--I've never spoke w/my sil about any of this but
I may intuitively sense her admiration of art and artists. She named their daughter after a famous artist/painter. I've seen books, magazines in her home about an actress she admires (she's from the same city)--so maybe subconsciously this registered with me.

Thank you for your support and encouragement, tlcandie. I think you hit the nail on the head about the rape/violation part--thanks so much!

:hi:
