I've been wondering what sort of themes pop up in your dreams. I noticed the more energy I put into repressing stuff, the more they come out in my dreams. Please share them here for me to read.
Disclaimer: This is probably self-indulgent, but I don't know how else to start this and that's kind of the point. ;P
When I decided to never to see someone important to me again, I had dreams that made me feel guilty - showing this person's innocent side that I ignored to make my decision. But then at other times something bad will happen and it'll show up in the dream as something they once did to me and I'll immediately know why I decided to never see that person again.
Sometimes I'll have dreams where I'm interested in something and another person will force me away from it. Usually this is represented by asking questions and seeking knowledge and then getting mocked for it, given apathy, told to do something else, or controlled away from it by the monetary desires of other people. Incidentally, this seems to represent why I distrust/dislike the Te function in general because this all stemmed from that in my childhood.
Other dreams seem to involve the wilderness. Usually the wilderness is a peaceful place where I either seek experience and adventure or a safe haven from something that torments me in the dream that's often a reflection of reality (like money or work).
I also tend to have a theme of how emotions flow between people. An angry person will make another person angry or a happy person will make another person happy. Sometimes I'll see that an angry person becomes happy when they become more accepting of other people and my dream will show me how they have changed over time. But it's always centered around acceptance.
relationships/betrayal and loss
There's a theme that usually involves trust and betrayal and a shattering feeling of loss and meaninglessness with relationships. In one dream, I once made a robot that was to parallel a human being for the purpose of selling it to the military. The military betrayed me by trying to invade my compound and kill me to take the robot without paying; and then the robot protected me by trying to kill them all. I felt complete loss of affect because it was so lifelike and I didn't really care for it originally. I had lost something that actually gave a damn about me and trusted a group of people that didn't care if I lived or died. This is probably a reminder of why I see people as fickle (that involves how they reason other people as well) and amoral before all else and if I trust too much or too easily I invite justification for a metaphorical firing squad, while losing the people that are good for me.
What have you learned from your dreams?
