Dream 01_200808

Dream of the Month (August 2008)
  1. Title: Prison Towers
  2. Date of the Dream: 2008 (mailed Thursday, 17 July 2008)
  3. Dream: I was in a prison visitation room (cafeteria). There was a massive crowd of people there, including inmates and visitors. We were told that a flood was coming and the prison had constructed high platforms as shelters. I followed the crowd of people up many flights of stairs to the platforms. I noticed a deep canal beside the prison, and saw that it was at extreme low tide. As I reached the platform, I was suddenly at my grandmother's house waiting outside with my daughter for the school bus. The light changed dramatically and I noticed that the sun had moved in the sky about 45 degrees from right to left. As I looked at the sun I saw a tornado coming toward us. I grabbed my daughter's arm and we ran toward the house. As I opened the door the tornado was very close and I could feel it pulling us into it. I screamed at my daughter repeatedly 'Get in!' and woke up.

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking characteristics: Prison settings in dreams often denote a feeling of emotional constraint in a current situation.

This dream illustrates a strong dynamic of constraint or lack of freedom that is impacting the dreamer. While some prison dreams are low-key or mundane, this scene quickly escalates into a crisis. The dreamer is struggling to find the means to take to higher ground and manage a growing concern. Yet, as is often the case, her own reserves are drained by the stress of the situation and she may feel her personal energy at a low ebb. Nevertheless, the dream is serving two purposes: it is underscoring that an emotional storm (prison flood, tornado on horizon) may indeed come her way and she should be prepared for this. It also suggests that family resources or something from her past may provide a platform of security or transition out of the prison. Finally, it suggests that she prepare for the window of opportunity that has not yet opened, but may open in the future. When her chance comes, she should be ready to act quickly and to trust her sense of what is real, and what is most important.
