Frozen River Dream - 2.2.09

Post by LadySoulflower on Thu Feb 05, 2009 5:53 am


1.) What is on your heart that you may have been praying or thinking heavily about the day or
week/month prior to the dream?
A) This situation with Fred and the job prospect w/ DYRS, plus trying to figure out my snakes dream.
B) My dissatisfaction and frustration at work.

2.) Next, write out the dream.
It
was kind of brief, but felt like a really long experience. I'm not
sure if it was night time or really early in the morning, but I'm
inclined to say early morning. It just "felt" that way. I was in a
group of people on some sort of expedition, but our mission was
unclear. I don't know who the people were, but in my dream, I felt
like we had been acquainted for a while. We were just arriving under
the bridge at Judiciary Square in DC
(the same spot where I waited with my best friend & her friends for four hours trying to get into the Inauguration),
but instead of it being a street, it was a frozen river. Initially, it
looked like a dirty, frozen river: because it was ice, we saw the white
parts, but you could tell the river was a dark black and a bit mucky
(actually, much like asphalt).

Kind of out of nowhere, one of
my students from work decides she wants to go play on the frozen
river. I cautioned her against it because we didn't know how solid the
river was and it could be dangerous. My student asked me to check it
out for her, so I put my hands on the ice. I could tell it wasn't
strong, but it was an odd, spongy feeling, not like weak ice (it was
still cold, though). When my student saw that I was able to push
without breaking the ice, she ran out onto it despite my protests. I
went after her and we made it to the other side, but our group was
leaving us in the opposite direction, so we tried to hurry back
across. Up until this point, the group had been oblivious to what was
happening.

As we were making our way back across, I noticed I
could see the water rushing beneath the ice, wearing it thin. I
encouraged my student to hurry, but no sooner had the words left my
lips than the river cracked up into giant chunks of ice and we could
see the rushing, black waters in between the ice chunks. When my
student and I started panicking, our group finally noticed the
commotion, and started cheering us on to encourage us across. A few
people came to the edge of the street/river, but the bulk of them
stayed back. I was trying to talk my student through how to jump from
ice to ice, but she seemed to catch on without paying much attention to
me. I, on the other hand, fell into the water half-way across the
river.
The
people who had come to the edge (one of whom looked like my boss, but I
don't think it was him) helped my student onto the banks, but no one
could help me. It also seemed like they really didn't care much -
people gasped, but went on about the trip.

I didn't stay
under water very long, although I did get sucked under & stuck
beneath a big sheet of ice for a bit. When I resurfaced, I was back in
the spot where I had fallen through and was able to cross the ice
chunks & catch up with the group, as they had only moved a few feet
by that time.
Nobody noticed
that I had rejoined the group & I hung back without saying
anything. I don't recall being wet or cold once I had climbed out of
the water.

3.) Now, leave out the details in the dream, the symbols, the actions, etc., and only write how each and every symbol, action, word, situation, etc., made you feel.
When
we got to the bridge, I remember feeling like I was in a strange
version of a familiar place, but I didn't understand why we were there
or what we were doing. I also really didn't feel like I was part of
the group, but I was required to be there (not sure why). While
testing the ice, I was thinking to myself, "I really don't know what
the h*** I'm doing; I'm not experienced in determining whether it's
safe to play on the ice..." When my student ran out onto the ice, I
felt a bit frustrated because she wasn't listening, I was worried for
her safety, and I felt it was my responsibility to rescue her. After
seeing how she was able to make her way back across so easily, I
remember feeling upset with myself for running out after her, since she
didn't have any problems getting back.

When the river broke
up, I shifted into take charge mode. Although I was very anxious about
the whole situation, I knew we had to get back across that river, so I
made that my main objective. Even amidst my panic after I fell
through, remember thinking that I needed to stay calm & look for an
opening. I went about making my way back to the group in a very
matter-of-fact manner, but I was a bit peeved that they had decided to
move on and didn't notice that I was there. At the same time, I knew
it was par for the course with them. Still, I felt very alone and a
even embarrassed/incompetent. All of these things are why I didn't say
anything.


4.) How did it turn out?
The trip moved on.


5.) What is the overall theme?
I'm
having a bit of a hard time with this; I thought I had one
understanding, but now that I've written it down, I think it's
something different... I understand that the dirty, raging river means
trouble, but why was it frozen?


6.) Where did it occur?
Under the
bridge at Judiciary Square in DC. It's really not a "bridge", per se,
but rather a space where 3rd street goes beneath the courthouse (this
is not the 3rd street tunnel they talked about about on the news, but
that is only a block or two away).

7.) Who was in the dream?
I'm
not sure who most of the people were, but one of my students from work
appeared in the dream. I also saw someone who looked like my boss, but
I am (was) not convinced it was him.

You did a great job using the worksheet to process your dream. I did notice some guarding and hesitation about answering question #5. Are you a perfectionist? I want to encourage you to being open to getting things wrong - so long as you are trying to use discernment and wisdom. The Lord will correct your thinking. It's the whole thing about learning by making mistakes.
One thought about the river being frozen is that this could be a clue as to timing. I have had a frozen, icy dirty river in a dream before and the day the dream came to full fruition was the first snow of the season. Here in Missouri, that means muddy slush! But, that interpretation doesn't seem to stir right in my spirit in your case.
There seems to be a mentoring relationship in the dream. As leader, you are testing the way, using caution, using judgment (all the while feeling totally out of your element). You may fail in some areas of the mentoring, but your mentee will not be harmed and you will receive encouragement from outside sources along the way. Test what I have said through prayer. If this interpretation is correct, ask the Lord what relationships and what roles He would like you to be open to. It would seem that you may be getting ready to grow!
Please reply back when you are given a revelation about the dream. Don't stop working at it - what a fun thing to talk to God about!

Hi Rnest...
Yeah, perfectionism is my downfall. It serves me well and cuts me down at the same time.

Thank you for your interpretation; I've been meditating on it since I read it yesterday. With this dream and my last one (I sent that to the listserv) I still feel like there's some bit I'm missing, even with interpretation. I did read the website, though, so I understand these things come in pieces... I can't say that I'm okay with that, though! Scratch Chin
I'll be sure to let y'all know when I get the rest (or just some more).

This is quite late, but I just wanted to let you all know that I was fired from my job 18 days after I had that dream! In reflection, I think that the guy I wasn't sure was my boss actually was him. In the end, the way I was fired was really shady & I ended up filing a discrimination complaint against the company.

Despite all the drama, God has seen me clearly through these past five months and allowed me a time of rest & shifted my direction. I start graduate school on Monday! I don't know about the mentoring aspect of things that RnestseekR noted, although I do keep in touch with one of my students from time to time.
