Death and rebirth in dreams

death and rebirth in dreams

Dreams are lately filled with things dying, bodies falling apart and fresh blood. There are recognisable themes of death and rebirth and the need to step into the new, which is a signature of this year. This is time to be reborn into a new identity, into the ‘now’ identity. Blood in dreams signifies new life, new beginnings. It is life-giving and our base line and indication we are living and breathing. It has a lovely vibration for me in my dreams and I welcome ‘bleeding’ dreams. I also got to know well that scenes of death, bodies, funerals and all things associated with the ultimate end are ways of showing me that parts of myself, as they are, need to ‘die’, renew, rebirth. In alchemy this process is called Motificatio

Following death dreams there is always an appearance of things transforming and for me it is always associated with love and alchemical marriage of the feminine and masculine. These are my absolute favourite dreams, because of how they feel. Incredible unconditional love surges through my body and all senses as I sleep in deep enjoyment of that experience. Those dreams are often difficult to explain or even express what they felt like as they are beyond words beautiful, other worldly. They are truly an embodied experience of love so huge, which we are part of.

After that stage of there is the birth of the new identity where I make choices in what to wear, what to put in my bag, which route to take and saying no to things that don’t feel right to me. These dreams lately are changing into presenting parts of myself as more assertive, confident and knowing. There is more fire and intuitive associated with them and it feels reassuring and deeply grounding on waking.

We all go through mini-cycles like this again and again, as we constantly renew depending on where we are in life and what is calling to be manifesting. For new to come in something needs to go. Through tracking dreams it can put us in touch with our inner processes on a deep level and images presented to us in dreams can become navigational tools we can engage with on our journeys through cycles.

 

Dreams and Knowing yourself

Dream offer very rich material to us in terms of what we need to integrate, embrace, celebrate and learn about ourselves. Dreams are great tools in our quest for self-realisation, for individuation. If one is fully conscious of dreams’ potentialities and possibilities, one will be welcomed into the potent world of significant symbols and sensations, which ultimately lead us to the core of ourselves.

I had a dream this week, which strongly connected me to the ‘crone’ side of myself. I felt this incredible power deep inside my being and a sense of anything is possible in both terms – shadow and light, destroy and flourish, love and force, revenge and forgiveness, anger and surrender. The feelings that one wakes up with in the morning after a powerful dream can not be made up. It is potent, it is there and it is leading us to where we are meant to be going in terms of manifesting our own qualities into our daily lives, decoding symbols and messages and making sense of what it is like to be us, to be fully conscious of paradigms and realities we find ourselves in.

The dream sparked my strong association with the crone Goddess Baba Yaga. It revealed my open connection with her qualities and the feeling of being attracted to the Goddess. She is very much a part of me. I spent my day in contemplation of what it meant for me and of course, messages became clear pointing me towards certain qualities that I have within me, which the crone planted into my soul. This power that I can use towards both sides and some of which is still manifesting in my life in one way or another. It was also pointing towards my past wounds, which I suppressed and buried in the shadow, but it is time I looked at it fully. It is inevitable and I always knew it would surface and in what a wonderful way it did. The material I have been avoiding is rich with valuable lesson and ultimately seeking to help me become a fully integrated person. It’s been long time coming and I am in love with the process of unfolding through imagery and stirrings in my soul.

These are just some ways to engage with your dreams:

  • let go off any rules, attachments to a particular meaning
  • follow your felt sense, ask yourself first and foremost ‘how did I feel when this and that happened…’ when reflecting on a dream
  • was there a particular image, figure, character, colour, space that struck you in a dream and you were left with for hours after waking?
  • just and recall any changes in feelings, sudden changes in scenery, behaviour – how did that feel?
  • if you get an insight into what it might mean, do not rush, sit with it and drill it down into pieces. Do they make a whole?
  • just know that whatever makes sense to you is the right way to go about interpreting and integrating dreams’ material
  • all dreams are about YOU and FOR you

I offer Dream Navigation services to anyone, who is interested in de-coding imagery and symbols, unfolding, integrating and embracing materials that present in dreams. There are two ways to engage in the process with me

1. I offer my intuitive interpretations and guidance on your particular dream, as I feel the source is communicating to me about you with psychology-related steps that might be relevant on your journey

2. We have a live session (in writing) where we explore a dream together for 30 mins
