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.
- Metaphors First
- All Humans are Equal
- Humans are Dual-Natured…lower nature (ego) & Higher nature (True Self)
- All dreams give us guidance for where our lower nature is operating in our life & where our True Self wants us to develop
- Recurring dreams reveal and issue (with our ego) that started at that age we are in the dream
- 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.

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.
In the dream, I’m visiting a friend (who I don’t know in real life) and her home is Boho style and she works at a Waldorf School as a teacher. Although, at times in the dream it seemed we were kids again and she was a student. It seems we grew up together and I was remembering our childhood in the dream.
We go somewhere in the evening. It’s a large gymnasium or a small stadium and we’re in the locker room which is mostly empty except for my ex-boyfriend. He brings in a staff and asks her to point out which locker was Tupac’s. Apparently, Tupac had used one of these lockers & it was locked up so no one would use it but people took its picture and posted on social media and went to see it, like a shrine.
So she shows him which one and it’s close to the locker my ex had been using and I thought that was interesting. The staff opens it up and what I find on the other side is that there are no individual lockers at all – it’s just a wall of locker doors and then on the other side is just one big long shelf with no dividers and it extends really far into the wall. There’s garbage in there as though someone went in there to snack. It was like a cubby. There were a bunch of ice cream cones and a raccoon.
Then the staff leaves. We leave. We go back to the house. My friend tells me she likes what I’m wearing and I tell her I like her apartment. We turn on the music and dance.

In the dream, I’m running an AirBnB. After the visitors leave I go into the place and find they’ve left it in complete disarray which gives me a feeling of frustration. I get busy cleaning it and it takes a long time to get it back to its original condition.
