Dream 01_200302

Dream of the Month (February 2003)
  1. Title: Bleeding Feet And Red Shoes

  2. Date of the Dream: 11/2002 (mailed Monday, 06 January 2003)

  3. Dream: I was walking somewhere and my feet were bleeding. A young boy made me a special pair of red shoes. I wore them, even though my feet kept bleeding from all the traveling. Then I was in a special bath, and my feet had healed. I had to walk to another bath without wearing anything on my feet. There were a lot of other people, and one man kept trying to sneak some shoes on to protect his feet. Several times, I saw a shadowy black horse.

  4. Significant life event: Nothing unusual.

  5. Personal concerns/issues: Nothing unusual.

  6. Associations: I'm still not sure why my feet were bleeding. I've begun dreaming about hands also. I've never before had dreams about my hands and feet.

  7. Pen Name: Karen

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Identifying Characteristics: Feet are suggestive of movement, and foundation.

This fascinating dream is a good example of a story line that seems spare, but which includes potent images and action. Feet are particularly powerful in dreams, and they are a frequent image, particularly when we are dealing with our power in a new way, or on a new level. The image of bleeding feet suggests weariness and courage on the part of the dreamer, as if determined to move forward despite any wounds or challenges endured on the way.

The red shoes could represent something that effectively concealed the wound, but did little to heal it. The healing bath may represent an immersion in qualities and experiences that have nourished and restored the dreamer's spirit, or helped her to feel more like herself again. Moving from one healing bath to another implies the dreamer is focusing more upon what she truly needs now. This is likely a time when she is less concerned with acting strong and is more interested in exploring what genuinely works for her, whether it suits the expectations of others or not.
