DREAM: Bird gives me a feather

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

I did this dream at the end of Tuesday's show and promised a more comprehensive analysis so here it is.

THE DREAM

In the dream a very high flying bird pulled the largest feather from it's body and flew down and gave it to me. I was in the back of a car being driven by my sister and her husband. The bird gave me the feather through the left window I was sitting at. I had to partially open it to take it. The bird sort of winked or smiled at me while giving the feather - like he knew I didn't expect it. The bird was VERY happy. We were all stunned and laughing with wonder at what just happened.

INTERPRETATION

This is probably one of the best dreams you can have. The bird is your higher-self and the dream shows that the goals you are pursuing (driving in a car) are connecting you with your higher-self. Actually, just like in the dream, it is the other way around. Your higher-self holds back until it determines that connecting with you is a wise thing to do. It obviously is! Just remain open to letting your higher self connect (you open the window in the dream). It is a female energy connection (left).

Expect really good things from here on as you're on the Dharmic path now.

Dream: A Seattle Seahawk is gay

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

I did this dream at the end of Tuesday's show and promised a more comprehensive analysis so here it is.

THE DREAM

In my dream there are lots of people gathering together…we are at a social function that I have helped to organize. I am there with my partner and it seems like some of my work colleagues are there too. Everyone is excited because a Seattle Seahawks’ star player is there and he’s offering free copies of his new book to everyone in attendance. I don’t know or see the title of the book, but I can see that the cover is bright green, yellow, and orange. He’s very excited to be sharing his book with everybody. I’m talking to him and he offers me a copy, but I tell him that I already have one. Then he introduces me to the man he’s with and tells me that he is his partner. Immediately I understand that he in gay (although I don’t think he really is…??). But in my dream, I am secretly happy about this because I know it will shock some people and I think the people it will shock NEED to be shocked. A short while later, my partner comes over to me and asks who the man is with the Seahawk’s player and I share what I know. My partner is visibly upset by this news, but when the star player comes over, my partner hides it well and remains polite and personable and takes the book that he offers him.

DREAMER'S COMMENT

I was actually in a same-sex relationship for 5 ½ years (after I divorced). I still identify as bi-sexual, although I haven’t been with a woman since I’ve been with my current partner.

INTERPRETATION

As usual the analysis will be obvious but probably not what you first thought. This points back to your father issues and fears about playing the game of life (football) that come from him. At the same time the dreams shows you overcoming those fears because the player comes out which pretty much is him symbolically saying, "I am not afraid to be intimate with my male side in public". Male side has t to do with confidence, belief in yourself, career and feeling worthy of the space you occupy (having a right to exist).

It uses your bisexuality as a backdrop for feelings. Your partner is not happy with it so this means you're still not completely happy with the new male energy intimacy you are bringing into your being. You've already got the book so this is now a done deal. In fact already having the book is the best part of the dream. Your partner displays your previous issues on the surface to you and then suppresses it when the player is around. i.e. I don't really like being intimate with my male side. I'd rather the old me.

Now to the part that you did think it was about. You're not to suppress your sexuality to please others. You don't have to be active but you should always admit to yourself that you are attracted to women too.

COMMENT

This dreamer is nearly finished the process of cutting the ties with her father. This dream shows that the process has worked.

Dream: Break-In at the Old Folk's Home

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

I did this dream on So, You Think You're Awake? yesterday but was rushed for time during the analysis. This is an attempt to do it justice. I liked this dream because Jerry Seinfeld's appearance in it immediately puzzled me. You have to know he is significant! Here's the dream.

THE DREAM

I was in an old folks home. I was lying in my room in bed when I noticed a young woman breaking in through the window. I knew she intended to cause harm to the facility and the people inside. She thought I was senile and told me she was there to give me my pills. I told her OK and she threw what she called "Fat Pills" and a "Pain Killer" at me on the bed. I told her thank you for the pills. She went out my front door into the hall and after she was gone I ran to the phone to call the front desk. The first phone I got to did not work. I ran to a different room in my area and found a phone on the desk. I tried dialing it few times and could not get anyone to answer. I finally found the phone number I needed to dial, but instead of numbers, it was a series of shapes and colors. I noticed that the shapes and colors corresponded to the numbers on the phone itself, but I could not seem to figure it out. Finally I decided to just go down stairs to the reception area. I ran down a hall way to the elevator. I noticed that Jerry Seinfeld (from the Seinfeld show) was behind me with a bunch of other people. He was wearing a tuxedo. I pressed the button for the elevator.

THE ANALYSIS

It's a classic but the old folk is the dreamer's parent - mother in particular (the reasons will become obvious). The home represents the body and the living quarters within another home represent the womb. Since the home belongs to the dreamer's mother (old folk's home) it become's obvious the dream is about pre-birth and everything else will refer to that. For completeness there are other symbols that confirm this. Both the hallway and the elevator also symbolise the womb and exiting by the front door and going down a stairs to the reception desk symbolise birth and reception at birth. There is no doubting now! An interesting symbol is the pills, in this context they can be indicative of contraception and a break-in while supposedly on 'the pill' could indicate an unexpected pregnancy.

So now we know the context we can tell that the woman is both mom and the dreamer's female side. More specifically it indicates how mom's reaction to being pregnant affected the dreamer's female side. We have the woman throwing things. This means mom was hurtful (mom threw things at me but made out it was for my own good). The pain killers tell us that the dreamer has suppressed pain from this time of his life. When we see it in the dream it means we are being asked to deal with it in reality. The fat pills are interesting and tell us that his mother didn't like the weight she put on during pregnancy. Armed with all this, the third sentence of the dream almost interprets itself. It was the dreamer's perception that the woman (mom) intended to cause harm (hurt / pain) to the people inside (the dreamer developing in her womb). Now we understand why he suppressed his feelings - to subdue the emotional pain.

So we already have enough to say the dreamer must cut-the-ties with his mother but we still get more from the dream. The problems with the phones tell us that difficulty with communication is the result of this painful start and suppression of that pain. We must stick with the female aspects because that's what the dream shows so communication here is expression of feelings rather than intellectual expression. Problems with two phones backs this up as two in dreams has to do with sharing and is enough to even indicate the impact is on the dreamer's relationship. It is important to note that because the dreamer's partner is not in the dream the foundation for difficulties with emotional expression in the relationship is way back when the dream says, so the dreamer will not have to trade his partner in for a more understanding model! I'm joking - just introducing humour to keep a heavy subject light.

Now we come to Jerry Seinfeld. What could he possibly mean in this dream? Note this part is at the reception desk so in the timeline of the dream the dreamer is just born. Jerry Seinfeld is behind him so at the time of birth the dreamer had already adopted the traits he stands for. Namely the dreamer is strongly intellectual (that's what a TV personality means). He's smart! The catch is that he uses his intellect too much and rationalises in situations where it is better to express and / or listen to his feelings. The problem, of course, is that the early life training in suppression of feelings means he doesn't feel his feelings at full strength so that pretty much makes it impossible to be open with them. Again, to remove this suppression simply cut-the-ties with mother and you're heart will be yours to enjoy again.

The tuxedo, being black and white, tells us that something is going on right now in the dreamer's life that he see's intellectually as black and white. This is even likely to be a general trait but look to relationship (because of the 2 phones) and realise your black and white view is due to this early childhood conditioning. Another way to say the same thing is that the tuxedo represents the dreamer taking something formally (i.e. following protocol rather than feeling). Now we get to why Jerry. He's a comedian particularly noted for observational humour, often focusing on personal relationships and uncomfortable social obligations. His presence tells us that the dreamer's tendency to feel awkward in social settings has the same root cause. Remember though, the dreamer is smart so unless you read this dream you're not likely to ever know he has this issue in social settings. I've already covered relationships so won't go back into that. Jerry's presence would almost be enough to tell us the whole point of the dream but he is also a positive character. It tells us that the dreamer, through the eyes of an intellectual, sees the world with a clarity that most don't and among other things this allows him to bring humour to situations. He may not always voice his humorous take on things but he has it.

COMMENT

How was that for a nice positive end to what must have otherwise seemed like a slap down analysis? The reality is we all have issues and our dreams are constantly asking all of us to work on them. We pick out biggest issues up in childhood. This is by design and we pick up exactly what we need to pick up. It is through working on these issues that we grow spiritually and that's the point of the experience of physical life. A wise person knows their limitations and our dreams attempt to make us wise. Once a dream shows us a limitation we no longer need to keep it. We can do any of a number of therapies to eliminate it. Sometimes just the knowledge of the source of the limitation is enough to overcome it. Dreams attempt to wake us up to what we need to work on. Working on these issues is part of our life purpose. With free will we have the choice to do nothing about them and go back to sleep but who wants to do that?

The Power of Your Subconscious

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Using dreams to help change your reality

(This article is from my newsletter series)

Michael SheridanYour thoughts create your reality – it's a fact. They create your reality through impressions onto your subconscious mind, which is the link between you and the infinite intelligence that manifests your reality. Your subconscious mind is a living storehouse with layers of conditioning, including fears. Much of this conditioning originates in events and times far below your conscious awareness. That doesn't matter! Like a faithful dog that carries out his master's wishes, your subconscious mind will continue to create your reality based on the instructions and conditioning it has been given. If carrying out these instructions brings you ill health and misery that is of no importance to your subconscious mind. It merely creates a reality based on the input—your input!

It may seem like madness, but remember that the conditioning you pick up in childhood is by design and mirrors your limitations on the spirit plane. Your purpose in coming here is to overcome these limitations. The conditioning you pick up plays like a tape on an endless loop in your subconscious mind, and with those instructions your subconscious knows the reality to create. The subconscious never sleeps and trumps any fleeting thoughts in your conscious mind in creating your reality. In this way, even in the density of the earth plane, you manifest the reality you need in order to face your limiting beliefs and thus grow through eliminating them.

Right now, you can attract into your life everything you want, whether it is fame, fortune, love, heath, happiness or success. You can also attract into your life lack of recognition, poverty, loneliness, ill health, misery and failure. What you attract is fully within your control. You are never a victim of chance. How to attract what you want with your thoughts is the subject of many excellent books such as Think and Grow Rich! There are also many outstanding courses that teach you practical tools for creating the reality you desire through focusing your thoughts and mind such as The Silva Method. (My preference is for the original more comprehensive course.) This knowledge is certainly not new and definitely not secret. But a note of caution, just as with dream interpretation, there are some misguided books on the subject, so don't swallow what you're fed blindly (including what you read here)!

You may have a conscious plan of what you want, but since your subconscious mind is the real architect, how do you know what you're going to create? Better yet, how can you program your subconscious to create what you want? This is where dreams come in. It will come as no surprise that dreams ask you to clear conditioning that is detrimental to your well being and blocks your success. They show the age you picked up specific conditioning and how it affects you today. They also show who it is connected with, so you have everything you need to work on changing it. Teri asked for a dream that would reveal the source of her limitations. What follows is part of her dream in her own words.

I slip into my friend's house unnoticed. I think I can find the answers I'm looking for by going to a back bedroom. When I get to the bedroom I decide to try on some clothes. I am in a state of undress when I hear the voice of a man and I realize he is heading towards this extra bedroom to put something away. I am suddenly embarrassed to be discovered in her house, especially since I am still undressed, and I'm ashamed that I never asked her permission to be there. So I try to hide under an orange blanket but he sees me right away. He thinks I am one of her grandchildren hiding under a blanket. I have to reveal myself and try to explain that I was just using the bedroom to try on some different clothes. He says that I'd better get dressed and then he leaves the room. I have a hard time finding my own things and I'm feeling a little panicked. Finally I am able to get dressed again and I sheepishly go out to the living room to apologize.

This dream tells Teri she will "find the answers" (said directly in the dream) by looking back to when she was in the womb (back bedroom). She must clear the conditioning she picked up there (undress and reveal herself). The conditioning is connected with her father (man in dream) and shows up today as feeling she somehow needs permission, being overly apologetic and sheepish, having a sense of panic where there should be none, hiding who she is, and holding back on sharing herself. The above are all words directly from her account of the dream. The orange color of the blanket also links her weight problem with the issues around her father.

Teri's solution to dealing with these issues is to cut-the-ties with her father. There are many effective therapies but cutting-the-ties works very well with issues you have no conscious memory of. It is a technique that instructs the subconscious using dream-like symbols to release the conditioning and fears associated with the individual with whom ties are being cut.

In reality, after nine years of trying to conceive, Teri's mother was elated to discover she was pregnant. Her father's reaction was to accuse her mother of infidelity and he refused to believe he was her father. Clearly the dream brings the focus to the correct point in her life. In other parts that are not shown here, the dream promises that dealing with these issues will springboard her spiritual leadership ability into a new dimension of success—clear encouragement to put in the work to eliminate these issues.

Cutting-the-ties is described in detail on my website. The therapy is extremely effective at removing the conditioning pointed out by Teri's dream. That conditioning is the foundation on which her issue of not feeling worthy of the space she occupies is built. By removing the foundation, everything built on top of it becomes unstable and is easier to tear down. Her apologetic nature, lack of confidence, sheepishness and embarrassment when sharing herself will disappear. They have no choice but to. The subconscious does resist but it does not question. Through the therapy it will purge the stored conditioning. Once out of the way, new positive traits are revealed. The evidence of new positive traits is generally how we perceive growth, but it is elimination of the conditioning that obscures them that is the real growth. The positive traits are already there but are either fully or partially masked by childhood conditioning. Once purged of conditioning, Teri's newly trained subconscious will create a different and far more welcome reality than her present one.

Using your dreams you can discover conditioning and purge it from your subconscious. You are then freed from the harsh reality that your conditioning creates. You are also free to impress on your subconscious new thoughts that will shape reality and fulfill your desires for health, happiness, success, love and more.

Cutting the ties

Cutting-the-ties is a service I have offered since 1992. You can do it on your own but for many reasons it works far better when facilitated. It typically takes six weeks to complete. Six weeks is not long compared to the 40+ years the conditioning is embedded!
