Lucid Intent? No
This dream has been viewed 4708 times.Daytime and I find myself observing a drama taking place in the industrial north of England. An elderly lady who has worked her entire life in an old Victorian factory is due to retire this day. The old woman is an incredibly hard worker who has slaved and worked her fingers to the bone. I gather that the lady was the cleaner for the mill.
To show their recognition for the lady’s service over the years the factory’s owners reward the cleaner with a piece of steam powered machinery from the factory as her retirement present. Outdoors at the house of the cleaning lady I watch as she proudly shows me the steam piston gliding effortlessly back and forth half inside her house and half outdoors. Apparently the lady is able to use the steam power to run all of her household appliances, heat her water etc.
The lady takes me inside her house and as I walk through the small hallway I have to dodge in between many sacks of coal which are lying about on the floor. It’s clear to me that of course now the lady will need lots of coal to generate the heat to boil the water to power the steam engine that now runs her house.
Later on I meet the lady’s son who just happens to be the pop singer Sting from the band The Police. He looks much younger and stands in front of me with an androgynous cocksure smirk on his face.
Additional Comments:Thoughts: Virtually all of this dream felt very positive particularly the satisfaction I shared in from the lady being rewarded for her many years service. The part with Sting seemed less positive and the only link I can think of between him and his dream mother was that archetypally they both represented people who clean things up. The lady’s retiring from the factory may represent an end to repetitious ways of thinking and old way of doing things, this could definitely tie in with my waking life at the moment as I often struggle with such things and am trying to bring about such changes and ‘clean’ up these areas if my life. The lady’s house perhaps represents my greater self and running it on steam power might be suggestive of me starting to do things under my own steam so to speak. The young Sting seemed to represent a bit of a contradiction, he was both the police (if only in name) and also a young rebel type, I’m not quite sure what that is meant to represent but it seems significant almost a kind of revelation where I was seeing a coming together or maybe a clashing of personal values or maybe the true side of what the dream police represent for me?
Dream 1: The £1,000,000 loan – Daytime and I find myself in the small municipal offices of a business man who loans out money at a price he seems something of a loan shark but with a vaguely friendly and positive air. I’ve decided to enquire about taking a loan for one million pounds. I don’t really have any idea what I want to use the money for at the moment but it seems like a good idea nonetheless. The loan shark seems quite friendly and gives me a scrappy sheet of peachy coloured paper with some very vague and rough calculations on it which are meant to explain the rules should I decide to take his money. I see scribbled in very untidy handwriting “Pay back 91%” and in smaller writing just above it and to the right “Penalty 2”, the payback percentage seems positive but the penalty less so. I gather that should I decide to take the loan then it will be a lifetime repayment covering over 60 years. As I leave the offices to think about it I’m suddenly struck with the idea of investing the money into property, it seems like a great idea, slightly risky but I may even make more than enough money to pay back the loan and keep a little to myself. I decide to go for a motorbike ride out in some wooded countryside to mull the idea over. As I ride along a tree lined country lane the piece of paper the lender wrote the loan regulations on gets blown out of my back pocket and flies away in the breeze. I panic a bit and decide to go back to his office to get another copy of the regulations.
