Recurring Dreams: High School

What does it mean to have recurring dreams of being in high school?

There are several types of scenarios which are common for this type of dream.

  • Being late class
  • Getting lost or losing important things
  • Not having enough credits to graduate
  • Being embarrassed or bullied in some way

There are others as well but these are ones I’ve seen recently.

Firstly, remember…

  1. Metaphors First
  2. All Humans are Equal
  3. Humans are Dual-Natured…lower nature (ego) & Higher nature (True Self)
  4. All dreams give us guidance for where our lower nature is operating in our life & where our True Self wants us to develop
  5. Recurring dreams reveal and issue (with our ego) that started at that age we are in the dream
  6. When we solve the ego issue then the positive qualities of our True Self can open up

With this in mind, here is the breakdown of recurring dreams of school.

Schools are places of learning. So to dream of a school is about being in a “condition or mindset of learning.” What is there to learn? The thing to learn is how did the negative experiences in high school shape us and where are there some left over negative emotions that need to be processed.

The problem with a lot of high schools is that they are run by administration who are funded by the government with their own motives or agendas. These agendas have more to do with creating a culture of consumers than focusing on developing the positive innate qualities of students. This creates a friction for students who are creative thinkers, have adventurous spirits, and who want to be innovators. It can feel like being a round post being forced into a square hole. It’s uncomfortable and can cause negative thoughts, emotions and behaviours which can last long into adulthood.

The other common negative experience comes from other peers. This goes without saying that a lot of bullying and peer-pressure happens in high school. The hurtful words and actions of others can cause feelings of sadness, embarrassment or fear which can last for many years. Having some strategies for going back to that time period, in your mind, and doing some healing work, will help bring about an understanding of what positive qualities could have been developed at that time. With this understanding, they can now start to be developed in the present.

Dream Interpretation: When You Dream of R@pe it’s About Interacting With Someone’s Ego Against Your Will

  By Richard Hastings

The first thing that I want to say is that it is
important always in the first phase of dream interpretation to deal
with things metaphorically rather than literally because there is more
to be learned on a metaphoric level than on a literal one.

In real life rape is forcing someone to have sexual intercourse
without their consent.   In the dream world sexual intercourse, if it
is positive, is the coming together of two sets of spiritual qualities
so that they can work together to achieve something greater.   When
you interact with someone else’s qualities, then you can learn them
and integrate them into your life so that they can produce something
new.    Rape is being forced to have intercourse with the dark side or
ego side of someone.   It causes fear and powerlessness and prevents
people from producing really positive things.

So the purpose of the dream is to actually do the opposite of what
the dream is giving you.   Being raped by someone at 15 in
metaphorical terms means being forced to interact really closely with
his ego, which is all of his bad qualities.   What is particularly
difficult is that 15 is the age at which you are no longer a child,
where you are taking your first steps into adulthood.  So the
challenge you had at that age was that you were living with fear and
forced to be his partner as if you were his partner even though you weren’t.

 The fear that the dream produces is having to live out that role
against your will.   The consequence of rape is the feeling of
powerlessness and fear so I am sure that these are the feelings that
you have had to live with in relation to someone.

 So what the dream is looking for is the opposite in positive
terms, but it is presenting you the rape because it is warning you of
the difficult times ahead with someone and his dysfunctions.

The quality that you needed when you were 15 from someone was the
quality of peacefulness so that you could be guided along your own
path.  Instead you got him and his ego, a person barely surviving his
own life.   This is not to be said for you to be angry with him.  He
was probably doing the best he could.   The fact is that what you
needed you didn’t get, so now you have the opportunity to give it to
yourself so that those who come after you  as well as you own self can
benefit from it.

One of the ways you  can tell about the real rape or imagined is
to analyze how this person used power.   If he had power issues,
then you might investigate it further, but if he didn’t, then it is
more likely that it is a dream state and not a real one.     One way
or the other,  he wasn’t the positive person you needed when you were
making your own first steps toward adulthood and this is the critical
issue for you.

So one of the big questions you are going to have to ask yourself
is why peacefulness?   Why not courage, determination, love, honesty,
or a host of other virtues?    The virtue of peacefulness will allow
you to stay fully on your own own unique path, which is different
probably than almost everyone you know.  The further your path is away from the mainstream the more you need the quality of peacefulness.  It allows you to be free from distractions and trappings of the world.

You are likely already on that path, but now your poised to take some
major steps forward.  That is why you are so keen to do the spiritual


Morning Musings the day after Tyre Nichols video release

Yesterday I said to my melanated best friend that the dreams people are sharing with me recently are about the culture of systemic racism in North America and the issues are so huge for me that I can’t make the video replies without crying. I asked him what to do. He says, “Tell them that.”

And then he tells me about a guy who was attacked by 5 cops and died. I hear him and my heart says a small prayer but at that point, I don’t know #hisnametyrenichols yet and I don’t know the circumstances and I don’t know if it’s immediately relevant to me.

We get off the phone and I’m thinking all day about how to make this video, which is sort of part one, to a series about how these amazing, talented people aren’t living their “best” life because the non-melanated people around them just won’t let it happen -consciously or unconsciously.

As I’m thinking about how to word my pre-cursor sorry-that-I’m-white video, my FYP starts popping’ with stories about Tyre. And then it hits hard. I hear from the black creators who I value, appreciate, love and respect just how painful it is, just how hard it is to be black in America (and Canada) today. “It keeps getting harder and harder to be black,” she says into the camera.

That’s when I begin to realize that the environment just changed. The collective just changed. It’s another Rodney King. It’s another #GeorgeFlyod





So now, the dreams are even more relevant. Even more timely. Even more pointed.

As I prepare to voice my experience, I’m preparing for the support & the backlash. But I will put myself out there because even though I can’t control the fact my skin looks white, I can control if I act white. And Lord, please help me never ever make that mistake.

The issue with #TyreNichols death by law enforcement is that all officers involved with his murder were black. The tragedy expands.

I Dream of Being the Wife of a Medicine Man

January 05, 2023

In the dream, I’m talking to an Indigenous man, about my age. We’re in a large lobby of a large auditorium for some sort of convention. As we’re talking, he looks up at the 12-16 ft rice paper eagle that spans the corner of the lobby and he mentions something about it. Just then, the paper eagle somehow gets unhinged from its latches and it swoops down and a wing hits the man on the head as it lands on the ground beside us. This is a sign, I say to myself. He knows it too and says let’s not talk about it.

Then we have another eagle symbol encounter. I’m beginning to think he’s meant to me my life partner. He thinks the same and surprises me by inviting me to his home in-between dinner and the evening dance at the auditorium. When we go in, he presents me with a ribbon skirt and beautiful ribbons and beaded jewelry for my hair, fingers, wrists and shoes. I put everything on, sort of in a state of overwhelm and shock and then he brings me into the main living area where there are dozens of aunties, uncles, and cousins. He introduces me as his girl friend and says even though my skin is white I have the heart & spirit of an Indigenous woman and even though some of his relatives give him dirty looks of scorn & disapproval, the majority of his relatives all do a ceremonial bow and they chant a thing which tells me that I’m not just his girl friend but his life partner and I’ll have a position of respect in the community because he is a spiritual leader but he didn’t tell me that so I didn’t know until I heard it in the song. The song is in their native language but someone I understand it all.

I’m just standing there, feeling happy and fearful, grateful and nervous and I just say thank you to them and smile and nod and then they get up and go back to what they were doing and I take his hand and we walk out and go to the dance.

This is my dream.
