“I just received the following note from one of our Inner Circle members. Below the note is my response.”
Did some vivid dreaming last night. Part of the dream was driving a powerful, red convertible sports car. I had the sense that the car was new to me…yet definitely mine to drive (not borrowed). The engine is so powerful that I was having a hard time gauging how much pressure to put on the gas pedal to move forward without running off the road (which happened to be very curvy- hairpin turns). I had the distinct sense that I was trying to get used to the new vehicle and that I had to learn how to drive it on technical roadways before I’d be free to open it up on a straightaway. It was a little scary, the power of the vehicle, but energizing that I was able to drive it at all. My sense is that the car represents emotions and/or intuitions, or something along those lines. I set an intention a few years ago to come back to practicing and developing my intuition, which I haven’t explicitly focused on since my mid 20’s, because it felt necessary to focus on building ‘success’ in the outer world. Build a stable platform. This is my meaning making of what I am and have experienced.
As I reflected on this dream this morning, I recalled your comment about transition. Hence this email. There was a lot more symbolism in the dream — too much to describe it all.
Back to the transition comment, which I valued in part because it prompted me to think through what you said (sometimes/absolute) language and why that could signal transition. What else are you reading there that might be helpful for me now?
This sports car is powerful. Hard to handle, but not beyond my ability to get the hang of it. That’s the tone of the dream.
Grateful for anything you can share that would be helpful,
The ONE thing that sticks out is that I believe you are an INTJ?
IF, that is the case, then your dominant introverted intuition is what is in play and thus through a dream (inner world action) would see an appropriate vehicle, although waking into the dream in order to remember it, seems interesting as well…
I’m not a dream interpreter, but I do notice my own dreams as well…
For me, I first thought of the sports car as being a revelation of capability and the repression perhaps of your capability as it is, versus how you might see it, or others might see it…
The hairpin turns obviously (to me) evidence the difficulty in navigating that capability demands and how it will be seen in relation to the outer world and those around you…
lots of fun stuff, but the metavehicle is worth noticing and that is you don’t have to develop your intuition…it’s developing you;)
