I am sat on a toilet in a public convenience reading a survival handbook whilst military exercises
take place outside.
The Staff Sergeant from the reality television series ‘SAS: Are You Tough Enough?’ joins me and sits
down on a toilet to my left.
I ask the Staff Sergeant about a past military campaign mentioned in the book that he fought in, we
chat and he speaks to me in a firm but caring fatherly way offering his advice and counsel.
Thoughts: Perhaps this dream is providing the answer of how to adapt and survive challenging situations by actually confronting them head on? Hiding fearfully on the toilet reading about the ‘theory’ of a reclusive extreme survival rather than going outside and ‘experiencing’ a close quarters confrontation first hand like a man with whatever or whoever causes the worries is perhaps the real reason why I am unable to eliminate my toxic worries. Fear of confrontation is the cause of the retention, psychological constipation, or not letting go of the worries, therefore do away with the fear, assert oneself, speak ones mind, stick up for oneself and for what one believes in and the worries will be eliminated natural.
Dream 2: Joyless piano – In an unfamiliar old fashioned living room which is permeated by a thick depressing atmosphere I see a group of older people sat about trying to oppressively direct the life of Ian Curtis the late lead singer of the music group Joy Division. I watch as Ian sits at a piano and tries to raise his spirits by playing a song, he miss keys and drops notes creating an eerie and solemn tune.
Dream 3: The rut – I have returned back to the town where I lived 10 years ago, I have feelings of hopelessness, resignation and failure. My stepfather, younger sister and her husband try reasoning with my stubborn depression but my mother has no consideration for me and prefers to side with her aunt. I get a new job as a tour guide on a coach it is my job to depress the clutch for the driver when necessary.
Dream 4: Dead air – At the foot of a dark and ominous stairwell I am shown stories of esoteric mysteries and tales of supernatural phenomena, one of which is about a paranormal radio discussion between a male radio host and his male guest. Part of the way through the transmission there is an eerie interruption of dead air where only white noise can be heard.
Dream 5: Retirement – At a house close to the area where I lived in my early teens I meet a man who happily tells me that he is retiring from his job in London after 40 years of service. I am invited to sleep over at the man’s house. In the middle of the night I am awoken by the thrumming drone of a generator which has been left running in the neighboring funeral directors grounds. I get up out of bed and go out to switch it off.
Dream 6: Car crash – Late at night on an unfamiliar street my wife and I watch as a car pulls away from some traffic lights and accelerates hard into the wall of a building, resulting in a shocking accident, I rush over to see if I can help. Surprisingly the car looks undamaged but peering inside I see that the driver has been violently thrown into the back seat and her limbs have been broken revealing the soft gelatinous marrow. The emergency services arrive and I help the stricken driver onto a stretcher telling everyone to be careful of her injuries. I take the rear end of the stretcher and a female nurse takes the handles at the front and we make our way to the hospital. But after having only walked a few steps the nurse cannot be bothered to carry the stretcher any longer and drops her end to the ground. I’m furious at her actions and the general lack of interest her colleagues show in helping the injured woman.
