How could I not know?

The following dream came to me from a Twitter friend a few weeks ago. When she first e-mailed the dream it took me a couple of days to really tap into it, however, once I did I reminded myself of similar dreams I had in the past.

When I look at a dream I look at the symbols and what they represent to the dreamer and to myself. Most dreams tell a story of what is going on in one’s life, usually a story in the unconscious. Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of life, we have issues that need to be addressed, however, we do not want to look at these issues and we ignore them. The dream, in this example, is bringing this issue to the surface leaving it up to the dreamer to examine it and deal with it in his/her life.

If the dreamer continues to ignore the signs, these dreams can become recurring, or become increasingly scary. It depends on the issue at hand. Once the dream interpreted, the dreamer usually feels a release or may even feel like AHA!! That’s when one knows the dream was analysed properly. It’s up to the dreamer now to deal with truth in waking life.

The dream:

Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true. Demosthenes

My husband and I were at some type of event or get together in some building. There was a woman I noticed but never really saw faces of anyone but her.

Then we were home and I don’t know how it came up but we were fighting cause I found out he cheated with that woman. Specifically on Monday and this was Thursday in my dream. I asked him when… he wouldn’t say but I had Monday in my head. I asked if it was the day he went to his moms house and it jumped to me seeing him being driven to his mom’s but no one was there so he went to another house which I couldn’t see but knew it was the womans.

Then I started crying so hard and he just sat there as I told him to leave. I felt like he wasnt listening to me and like he was thinking I’d get over it or something.

And I kept going back to the building I saw her and thinking… how could I not know?

I woke up sobbing still thinking it was real.


The Interpetation

Let me give you a bit of background on dream interpretation. Usually, according Jungian theory there are 3 roles in a dream. The Ego (You) The Superego (Parental/Morality) and the Id (childlike) our deep-rooted wishes and dreams (could be selfish too)

 In dreams, usually, these 3 roles usually represent a part of you.

 You (Ego) Are in conflict with your husband (Id) about betrayal. You see this woman (superego) as a threat to your relationship with your Id:  that part of you…

So, what is happening in your life right now that you seem to be betraying yourself. What are you preventing yourself from doing at thsi moment? Are you procrastinating on something really important?

You dream about Monday? To me Mondays are always like a new week beginning. So, if this means the same to you,what new beginning are you preventing yourself from doing? The fact that you dream this betrayal happened in the woman’s house leads me to believe you feel the need to escape to do the thing you wish to do or hide it from people. Is speaking your truth difficult to those around you?

You are very sad you are not listening to yourself about something.

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

This is what the dreamer had to say after the interpretation: 

I cannot even tell you just how dead on this is. Exactly how I’ve been feeling and actually just had a conversation expressing this to a family member right before I checked my email. It gave me goosebumps! How do you do that? I would like to share this experience on my blog but not sure how to without getting too personal ya know?

Thanks Kim so much!!! Amazing!
