Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Robust Scorpions Come Out of the Woodwork!
I become sharply aware and point out to someone that there are baby scorpions – MANY of them – that have emerged from a wood door frame and are vigorously squirming to break free. At first glance I think they are hatching but on closer inspection, one comes into sharp focus. It becomes apparent these are not baby scorpions. They are mature, robust and muscular scorpions with more than one yellow band running across their backs. They are attempting to break free from cobwebs. The door may have been ajar or missing, the space is wide open and definitely not closed or secure!
Felt like an observer, alert yet not panicked.
Main Life Issues:
I am faced with a life changing and compelling opportunity to engage with life; however, to do so, I must utterly let go of who I have been. I see myself avoiding the engagement yet often become aware of doing so only after I’ve Isolated myself or turned away. I am actively trying to remedy the situation and desperately need to change.
Someone observes a lot of creatures that could potentially hurt.
Scary bugs: Metaphor for what intrudes and can overwhelm.
Baby scorpion: A creature that can potentially bring pain and harm.
Full grown scorpion: What is known to bring pain, a history of harm.
A door frame: A transition space; an item that leads to another, that opens the way.
Coming out of the woodwork: A play on words for “emerging from the past” as a metaphor of dreamer’s reactions, fears related to the past.
Muscular, mature and robust: Metaphor for being able to exert the maximum pain and distress.
Attempting to break free: Trying to escape from what holds one back.
Cobwebs: Symbol of what can trap; in this case, a metaphor for demons from the past, the dreamer’s past fears and pains.
A missing door: Play on words for potentially missing an opportunity, or the opposite as a very open pathway to transition somewhere, an invitation to go through unhindered.
What the dream Means:
Often a dream mirrors what life feels like. The dream is saying: Life feels as if scary things could get through and hurt me as a mirror of your anxiety about the new directions in your life. It sounds as if you have experienced pain and hurt in your life, and because of that, you likely maneuver through life as if trying to avoid being hurt. While doing so makes logical sense as a coping mechanism, it can also be a barrier to enjoying life and opening oneself up to opportunities.
Bottom Line: Like a digestion system, the dream is helping you process your fears and anxieties about change and letting go – about “the bad stuff getting through”. If you have a history of painful events, a therapist can help. Sometimes you need to deal with the past to get the most out of the future.
Thank you for that, rather revealing.
