In the dream, my boyfriend calls me and asks me to call his other girlfriend in United States. I’m stunned that he says he has another girlfriend and thinks it’s okay. So to humour him I agree & dial the number he gives me. A woman answers and he talks to her for a few moments. At first she seems to not recognize him but then she does and her voice changes and she softens to him and I can observe from their interactions that she’s his girlfriend. I don’t know how to deal with it and the dream ends.
Then I’m at an ocean shore and am trying to help someone do something. I leave my phone in the water for some reason. Then someone like a life guard comes over with it saying the water can damage the phone permanently and I take back the phone, looking at it for damage, questioning myself, “Why did I leave a valuable phone in the water?”
July 23, 2014 – I dream I am watching a woman skate. She’s on an out-door rink, graceful and confident. She’s coaching someone else who isn’t dressed properly for the snow and ice, who is a lot younger than her. She doesn’t seem to mind. I find myself noticing the curves and shape of her body as she’s wearing black tights and a loose shirt. I wonder how does she feel confident being so exposed like that. Does she really not mind or is she pretending to not mind? She appears to not even mind. I think of myself and if I was wearing that on the ice I would be so uncomfortable with how form-fitting it is and how people gaze not on the skill of the movement but just on the physical form.

Last night I dreamed of being on a First Nations reservation. There was lots going on. Some sitting by a bonfire. Some getting ready to go somewhere. Some playing games. I heard something and looked up and saw an eagle soaring very high above the trees. It was circling around. Others started noticing too. Then another eagle joined the first and it was even higher than the previous one. They circled around and around high above us. I just stared at them, not being able to take my eyes off them because of their beauty. Then I noticed the first one had something in its mouth and as it flew lower and closer to us I could see it was a tiger. I was stunned. “What?!” An eagle carrying a tiger in its mouth!? Impossible, I said to myself. “But there it is! Impossible yet it’s happening.”
By now the eagles caught the attention of the others and an elder beside me to the left was looking up at the eagles and then doing something with the sticks in front of her. She closed her eyes briefly as though in prayer or supplication. I glanced back up and sure enough, there truly was a tiger in the eagle’s beak, being carried in the way a mother cat carries her kittens.
Soon the eagles landed in a clearing nearby and before we knew it the tiger was dropped and surprisingly it was still alive. It started to run at us but we had lots of time to pack our belongings and get in the car although it was packed and we all just barely fit. The elder was giving us instructions the whole time.
There was a swampy area over further off to the left and at some point we had been playing a game over there, some sort of simple games like catch and tag. I had jumped in for a bit and got out, thinking I’d go back in later, but when we were getting in the car I realized I couldn’t go back to the water today.
So that was the end of the dream, getting into the car, watching a tiger run at us from across a field, with the eagles close by on its heels.

The other day I dreamed of running away from an avalanche of snow. I was able to get to safety with a friend and we joked around happily afterwards. Snow and cold in dreams is about the “cold” types of behaviours people do when they are filled with ego and seeking power, not thinking of how they affect others but only going for their own best interests. A great way to deal with this kind of issue in real life with people is to become like a “positive avalanche” sharing an abundance of encouragement, support and enthusiasm. That’s what I’m doing when I work with prisoners.
