Dream 01_201005

Dream of the Month (May 2010)
  1. Title: Finding Golden Treasure
  2. Date of the Dream: 2010 (mailed Thursday, 22 April 2010)
  3. Dream: I am with another woman by a lake. I realize that I am a man (I am really a woman) and I comment to the other lady: "Your body is beautiful." We both enter the lake and I see the water is as black as ink. I cannot see how deep it is; however, I am swimming comfortably and strong. The other woman approaches a shoreline and stands up. The water is only about four feet deep and she says: "The bottom is soft and feels like feathers." I stand up and we walk through the water to the shoreline just in front of us where other people are waiting for us. I now see about two dozen gold horse sculptures beneath the water at the shore's edge. I wonder why they were there. Did they wash up from the depths of the lake or did someone just throw them in there? I know I must now claim them from the water, clean them up and display them for others to see and enjoy. They are very valuable artifacts and need to be in a proper place of respect.
  4. Significant life event: None
  5. Personal concerns/issues: Still working on making changes in my life.
  6. Associations: I actually have had the inclination to start writing (water as black as ink) and I have been wondering what to write about.
  7. Category: Anomalous
  8. Pen Name: Boondean

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Striking Characteristics: A change in identity in a dream permits a new perspective and freedom from the habituated mind.

This beautiful scene is a variation on a theme I call “Treasure at the Shore,” in which the dreamer discovers unforeseen treasure at the place where the water meets the shore. In dream symbolism this region represents the place where imagination and potential (the water) meet the intellect and the well-known life (the shore). When a dream takes place here, it suggests emergence from a time of doubt and journeying, into a place of curiosity about the future. Life requires a bit of surrender to reach this threshold, but in return we feel a new excitement and a dawning realization that a new life stretches ahead.

It is likely that the man and woman represent inner aspects of the dreamer: the swimming suggests an emotional harmony and mutual awareness that offers rich promise and stability. For what lies ahead, she will need this inner partnership and mutuality between her very different kinds of strength and gifts.

The discovery of the golden horses suggests creative work ahead; with multiple results. Horses often represent our capacity to work, and the liberation and sacrifice that entails. She has a choice to bring this potential forward and enliven it, or to simply explore it as an exotic portal into other dimensions of herself. However she handles it, this dream discovery is a power and beautiful gift, one that may offer deepened understanding with each successive visit to the inner shore.
