Dream 01_200606

Dream of the Month (June 2006)
  1. Title: Cut Off Hand

  2. Date of the Dream: 5/25/2006 (mailed Thursday, 25 May 2006)

  3. Dream: My right hand was just cut off. It was a clean cut. Somebody had my hand. I remember still being able to grab things and hold things with my right hand. You could see that my hand was not there, but somehow I was grabbing things and I could still feel as though I were feeling with my fingers. I then went to the hospital. At the hospital they were getting ready to put my hand back on. Then out of nowhere my hand had been put back on. It had bad stitching and it did not look like my hand. I tried really hard to move my fingers and hand. It hurt every time I tried.

  4. Significant life event: My husband and best friend are overseas. I have been going through some job changes and am trying to get my real estate license.

  5. Personal concerns/issues: I am always worried about friends and family, especially my husband and best friend who are overseas on military duty.

  6. Associations: none

  7. Category: Anomalous

  8. Pen Name: Handie

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking Characteristics: Amputations and transplanted body parts are often reflections of forced change.

Hands are symbolic of our ability to do things, to take our ideas and wishes and manifest them, to express ourselves and make things happen. The right side is often symbolic of the masculine aspects of our lives: the men in our lives and the parts of ourselves that deal with the world.

This dream marks an abrupt change that has left you reeling; the “clean cut” suggests that it feels as if something has been severed from your normal life. But you are dealing with this well, tending to the loss while you pragmatically make necessary adjustments. The “new life” probably feels awkward and unreal yet, and every adjustment may seem like a reminder of loss. But if anyone can make this work, you can. Already you are tending to your wounds, doing what must be done, and flexing your new potentials bravely. You will get the hang of this, maximize the growth, and heal the pain.
