Dream 01_200902

Dream of the Month (February 2009)
  1. Title: Class, What Class?
  2. Date of the Dream: 2007 (mailed Thursday, 29 January 2009)
  3. Dream: In my dreams, I am leading my normal life, taking care of my young child, spending time with family, when suddenly I remember I am enrolled in school (usually high school, even though in real life I am 24). I decide to go to class that day.

    I get to school and don't remember what classes I am in, so I have to check at the front desk. I try to find the classes and have a hard time, so I usually miss first period. Then I do find another class, sit down, and understand NONE of the curriculum, since it's usually been weeks or months since I've been to the class. I also don't have any paper, pens, or books, so I can't keep notes. I leave at the end of the class frazzled; then go to my next class. This last class is ALWAYS on the very top floor. The stairs to this class are so steep that although I try to make it up, I fall, and just can't climb them.

  4. Significant life event: At the age of 17 I gave my daughter up for adoption and missed 1 week of school and felt awkward returning.
  5. Personal concerns/issues: At the age of 17 I gave my daughter up for adoption and missed 1 week of school and felt awkward returning.
  6. Associations: At the age of 17 I gave my daughter up for adoption and missed 1 week of school and felt awkward returning.
  7. Categories: Anomalous, Nightmare, and Recurring
  8. Pen Name: Mama Joanna

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking Characteristics: When we dream of returning to something in school that we have missed or neglected, it implies a sense of having drifted off course in life; although the solution is typically extremely close at hand and readily available.

This is a theme of being swallowed by the business of life, and in a moment of clarity, remembering there was another purpose you had in mind earlier on. The difficulties in the dreams: (confusion about enrollment, lack of proper supplies, and a sense of overwhelm) reflect the subjective wave of despair that rolls in when you consider adopting a more organically fulfilling course of action. When these dreams recur, it is always a sign that some part of the dreamer is “waking up” and remembering a parallel potential. Once this soul-level rumbling begins, there is no turning back. This is someone who is going to sculpt her life to continue to survive, but also to be more fulfilled and live authentically and fully. It is not so much a matter of leaving the current routine, as it is of reconnecting with a sense of purpose that illuminates routine actions with the light of meaning. Here is an affirmation I give my students: “I am willing to be myself. I am willing to do what I came to do. I am willing to follow the guidance that comes to me.” Try this, gently, working from the inside out, and notice if you feel more deeply centered in your own life, and in your deepest self.
