Sorry, I missed the posting yesterday. Here it is.
Just as discussed on Day 76, giving a dream a title helps to carry the dream energy through the day. Assigning a motto to a dream brings a brief “lesson plan” with the motto.
I recently had a dream where I was being brutalized and bullied by the father of one of my students. He was batting my breasts repeatedly even when they were wrapped as flat as possible. At first I was puzzled on why I was wrapped and why he was beating me. And then, of course, the fact that I was involved in dream symbols helped me realize –I think the dream really has to do with this father pushing his daughter to athleticism that demands a flat chested thin “little girl” body. She’s getting rounded hips and breasts which will undoubtedly affect her balance performance greatly.
For a week before this dream, I had been brutalizing myself by going off sugar completely and doing The South Beach Diet. And please note, it only feels like brutalizing a day or two. I felt 40 years younger off sugar. After a trip to Indiana where they put sugar in green beans, tomato sauce and everything else, I’m feeling older again. However, the dream can also be talking personally of me berating and bullying myself to lose weight and be less curvy, ahem, plump, just short of obese.
My motto for the dream for me is: When I claim my womanly body I fully embrace my feminine role and purpose in life.
Regarding the father and the daughter: I don’t have the right to help the daughter in this situation, except by prayer! Of course, I can’t help thinking that excellent piano playing lasts a lifetime and can bring years of pleasure as a Super-Ager. In her particular sport of choice athletic participation doesn’t usually last past age 21.
