Someone Eats My Child
Cannibalism of My Child
I dreamed I fell in love with rock star Marilyn Manson (famous for the song, Tainted Love). Just before we had sex he rips his chest and stomach open and two badly deformed children climb out and I realize he’s trying to lure my son there. I find my son and run, but Manson chases me. When he grabs me I tell him I love him; he paused and said “Really”? I said yes. He wants to take me to his farm of children and have us eat them, then gets mad because I try to call the cops. He breaks my phone then wants to eat me. I run into a shopping centre, screaming, but nobody listens because people don’t want to get involved. Someone calls the police and a female cop picks me up. I woke up knowing the ending would be him in the back of the car and us crashing!
Felt so much pain that I couldn’t protect my son; intense fear.
Main Life Issues:
Recently diagnosed with borderline personality; my child is living with his father.
It’s a story of someone forced to do something against their own self-interest (eating a child, a metaphor for not allowed to be the mother to her child), gets no support from others, yet in the end is rescued.
Rock Star: Iimportant man you admire who has all the power; likely in this case a metaphor for your ex husband.
Song, Tainted Love: A metaphor for love that is off track, given or received.
Deformed children: Bad outcomes; results that are not good.
Cannibal - wanting to eat child / children: Trying to get nourishment from sources one should not; breaking a strong social norm, a taboo.
Breaks my phone: Someone does not allow me to communicate; not being able to connect to others, the world.
No one listens or cares: How it feels that others react to you in real life, they don’t seem concerned about your problems or your pain.
What it Means:
The dream describes how terrible life feels for you at this time; you feel forced into a life you don’t want or understand and few are there to help you. Yet the dream shows that in the end you find help. That tells you that even though you’re having a very rough time now, it will get better.
Bottom Line: The dream tells you to hang in there and stay strong, suggesting that in time, things will change. Learn to trust yourself, become positive in thought and action and keep reaching for your strength. You will get there.
