Dream of the Month (June 2010)
Dr. Holloway's Comments:
Striking Characteristics: Contaminated water frequently reflects emotional toxicity that may be impacting the dreamer’s perspective.
This is a dream of “habitat,” one of the most common themes for adult women in North America. In these dreams, animals, fish or birds lack an essential and life-sustaining ingredient in their habitat. The creatures represent the dreamer, who lacks something vital to her happiness and wellbeing, in a fashion that is invisible, yet has been depleting her for some time. Birds frequently represent the mental and spiritual perspectives of the dreamer – quickness of understanding, clarity of thought and speech, as well as the freedom to make intuitive leaps.
The core of this dream is that the bird feeder has gotten dirty and is no longer providing suitable water for these birds. This suggests that her own sustenance is being compromised by an emotional contaminant that is unnecessary, and that can be changed by her own awareness and intention.
Birds are the soul totems in this dream. The dreamer may not realize the extent to which self-expression; spiritual freedom, communication and fellowship are necessary to her. The golden bird reveals the nature of the difficulty to her. The implicit solution is cleaning and clearing. Releasing, forgiving the past, moving boulders away from the stuck places and bringing in fresh ideas, opportunities and movement into her life. She needs an outlet for her glorious expression, and an inlet for the adventurous ideas she craves. If she can strike this balance, the whole of her life will again shine and become clear.
