Dream: Little Boy With a Blackbelt & Playing Ping-Pong

28 March 2017

In the dream I am helping a young boy to fasten his black belt. He’s fidgeting and wearing street clothes instead of his uniform so it’s a bit tough. Eventually I get it and his mother thanks me and they leave.

In a dream yesterday I am texting a friend and he’s making me laugh. Then another friend walks in and asks me if I’d like a coffee and I go over to what looks like a cross between a ping-pong table & a diningroom table. I duck down playfully. Another friend, Dr.M, approaches the table and throws a ball of crumpled paper at me. I duck and then throw one back at him laughing.

These are positive dreams and with positives it means just keep going forward in the direction I’m going. A black belt is a symbol for having mastery over all the skill of the coloured belts. To be putting a black belt on a boy who is in street clothes is an interesting metaphor because usually the uniform comes first and then the belt. It’s something to think about.

Playing ping-pong is a good metaphor because ping-pong, like tennis, is about being able to play back whatever is served to me. This is a good skill to have in every area in life because it helps keep things playful and light which is the way we were meant to be.


Dream: Someone Switched my Table

(Written on 06 February 2017, scheduled for publication on March 15, 2017)

I was in a home which I was either trying to make my own and get someone out of, or I was going to leave it altogether. When I went downstairs to rest, they made a big mess upstairs and they switched the table I liked for an old one that had been downstairs.

At first, when I came back upstairs, I just saw the mess and I started cleaning but then I noticed the table in the middle.

This doesn’t belong here and it’s going, I said.

They were surprised because in the past they could get away with this sort of thing.

It’s going, I said, and I didn’t budge.

Now they felt dumb that they had tried to do this.

Get it out, I said.

And they started to think about how to move it out.
