Dream 01_200106

Dream of the Month (June 2001)
  1. Title: Lightening Strikes And Strikes

  2. Date of the Dream: 5/6/2001 (mailed Friday, 11 May 2001)

  3. Dream: I am standing at the corner of a street with several people watching dark clouds and sheet-lightening and hearing rumble of a distant storm, which has been predicted and will move our way.

    It's a clear and beautiful day towards sunset where we are. Suddenly someone says: "Wow! Look at that!" Bolts of lightening are crashing into the yard of a house not far from us up the street --yet all is serene elsewhere. Suddenly the house is hit and catches fire. There is great panic. I run to the nearest house to ask them to dial the emergency number. I see through their window that they are already doing so. Behind me someone yells: "The house beside it has caught fire too!"

  4. Significant life event: Their problems have escalated but seem to have abaited slightly-- though no one expects it to last.

  5. Personal concerns/issues: Only the same wish that they would split up and get it over with.

  6. Associations: Break up is only a matter of time. Probably before autumn.

  7. Pen Name: IRIS

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Identifying Characteristics

Lightening is often a symbol of anger, and also of catalyzing circumstances.

The lightening in this dream appears to reflect the dynamic chemistry between two different perspectives, or types of energy. Typically lightening is featured in the dreams of people who are preparing for a change, yet who are reluctant to initiate that change until something “trips the switch.”

It certainly may be that this dream is depicting drama that is occurring periodically. The build-up to an ending between people attracted by strong chemistry, yet incompatible in other ways is often like witnessing a “force of nature.”

The dream presents two cautionary notes however. Whenever the cry for someone to dial 911 occurs in a dream, this is a metaphor of some seriousness. It implies that a situation that has been drifting along should be attended to, either because it may escalate into a real emergency, or (more often) because the costs to the human spirit have simply grown too high.

The second caution is in the spreading of the fire due to close proximity. This suggests that despite whatever support you give, you will want to avoid any tendency to let your personal reserve of energy be set fire or side tracked to your detriment by what unfolds.
