Dream 01_200003

Dream of the Month (March 2000)
  1. Title: The Bolt In My Brain

  2. Date of the Dream: 2/2/2000 (mailed Thursday, 03 February 2000)

  3. Dream: My brother and I were on the roof of my parentís house, daring each other to jump off. First my brother jumped, then I went too, putting my legs over the edge in order to land feet first. We repeated this a number of times. Before our last jump, my brother asked me what that thing was that was protruding from the top of my head. I touched the top of my head and felt the head of an anchor bolt. He retrieved a ratchet for me and I proceeded to unscrew the bolt to take it out. While I was doing so, he asked me if I felt any pain. I didnít, and replied no. After this, I woke up.

  4. Significant life event: None

  5. Personal concerns/issues: I've recently started a new job. The day before the dream, I had been feeling somewhat frustrated with my job. My frustration stemmed more from self criticism rather then the external influence of my job. I do like my job, but I do not know everything about it (which I know will come with time and experience) in order to be the best I could be.

  6. Associations: None that I can think of at this time.

  7. Pen Name: Scxix

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Identifying characteristics: Objects in or around the head often illustrate patterns and situations that have an effect on our thinking.

Itís common to have a sibling or best friend appear in numerous ďbuddyĒ dreams. Like movie heroes the two of you may share adventures, brainstorm problems and conquer challenges of various kinds. The buddy actually represents an internal aspect of the dreamerís psyche; the dynamics between the dreamer and the Ďpalí reflect the mechanics between the dominant ego and complimentary qualities. This kind of psychic interplay is vital to adult flexibility and often nudges us towards greater rewards without the necessity of learning exclusively through trial and error. The anchor-bolt in this dream may reflect a style of thinking that tends towards fixity. If this is true, then the dream suggests that it would indeed be difficult to react and think off the top of your head when some concern is bolting down that set of abilities. The brotherís rescue with the ratchet suggests that the complimentary abilities of the psyche are already working to move you past knee jerk reactions and into a more resourceful and natural state. Viewed in this light, the leap from the house is probably not symbolizing immature action, but is in fact encouragement to trust and enjoy the leap you have taken in a more metaphorical sense. Since it is repeated several times as childís play, it is likely that you can trust your balance, timing and ability to land safely in your current environment.
