A Reptile and A Ghost
Facing What is Scary
I am walking with my family towards my house. We are six people and one of them starts to move like a reptile. We reach our house which is in forest; there are no lights but we enter and my mom starts dressing my kids. I am searching for my father. I try to call him because I am very scared; suddenly he enters and tells us he went for a walk. I tell him that tomorrow morning we need to sell this house and I start shouting, “If there is a ghost - come out”.
Felt very scared
Main Life Issues:
Really want to reach the top, be successful.
Someone meets scary things and feels threatened in a place that should feel safe.
Walking with family to house: Going to a safe space with loved ones.
Starts to move like reptile: An instinctive action; acting on instinct; urges that are not human.
No lights in house: A familiar space that lacks clarity; a space that should feel safe which does not feel safe.
Search for my father: Seeking wisdom; looking to one’s roots and standards for guidance and answers.
Need to sell this house: Feeling the urge to change locations; reactions to one’s surroundings or place in life.
Ghost, ghost in house: Ghost as a metaphor for remnants of one’s past, past influences, unconscious forces that shape our decisions and reactions.
Trying to locate ghost and get it out in the open: Looking to the past to understand present fears and reactions. Attempt to understand forces to which one is reacting.
What it Means:
The dream is a mirror of your feelings, showing that life feels scary at the moment, whether because of a particular circumstance or in general. By showing the fear as a story, the dream invites you to name those fears, check where they are coming from and why, and decide what you can do about them. It can include fears about your ability to succeed.
Bottom Line: The dream invites you to face whatever scares you and sometimes the fear is more scary than the real thing. Define what success means to you, why you want it, and what it would take to reach your definition of success.
