Interpreted dreams

  • DREAMS DON'T TELL YOU WHAT YOU'RE EXPECTING

    Print

    Dear blog friends,

    From the end of November 2020 to February 2021, we have just spent three months reflecting on the relationship between the outside world and the inside world. For you, on this subject, I have collected and translated 6 fascinating articles, 6 articles that Christiane, over the course of time, has put on her blog with love. Dreams teach us so many surprising facts!

    Today we are going to move on to another study theme and you will go from one surprise to another.

    Yes, you will! Could you imagine it? The new topic is:

     

    Of the Happiness of Anger

    Anger!

    Anger is getting a lot of bad press today. That's the negative emotion to run away from.

    One exclaims:

    - But stay zen, my dear!

    And the other says:

    - If you're angry, my poor thing, it's because you're far from having reached Enlightenment!

    An Enlightened One is detached from these inner storms, he controls himself and remains calm, above the disturbances of this lower earth.

    Softness, serenity are the proof of a certain spiritual elevation.

    One can read for example on the Internet:

    "Anger or Zen?

    Angry attitude or Zen meditation? Their consequences are deeper than you think. Anger creates disorders of the organism. The stress it causes diminishes the quality of our immune system and makes us susceptible to infections: herpes pimples, liver disease, and, for some, a list of even worse ravages. On the contrary, the result of a session of relaxation, letting go, or sharing increases the immune defences, balances the heartbeat, lowers blood pressure. Choose your side!"

    Thus, one restrains oneself from any vigorous movement, one refrains from saying directly what one thinks, one shows oneself smooth, one does not contradict, one is kind! Oh yes... a love...

    A certain form of "Christianity" - is it that of Christ? I don't think so -, and a certain form of "Buddhism" - is it Buddha's? I don't know -, agree on this point, recommending to avoid any movement that could hurt, hurt the other or do harm.

    But this is not always the opinion of dreams. We have already studied the dream of Tania, which showed her that being mean like her sister-in-law by getting angry with her colleagues was beneficial to her.

    Dreams are the expression of nature, of life, of the instinctive force that defends its territory. And dreams don't necessarily find that anger is always that bad. You will be able to judge for yourself with this dream.

    Many women have a charming temperament, they are gentle, patient, tolerant. Their greatest desire is to maintain peace in the home. Loren is one of them.

    Never raising her voice. If she has a reproach to make, she says it nicely, with very measured words.

    She has received a very "Christian" education and she keeps in mind the words of Saint Paul:

    "Love has long patience, love is kind [...]

    it is not quickly provoked, does not impute evil, [...]

    it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (1)

    The famous apostle understood very well the necessity of love, he who, filled with hatred a few years earlier, helped the murderous Jews to stone the first Christians (The Bible, Acts of the Apostles, ch.7, v.58; Acts, ch.8, v.1-3; Acts, ch.26, v.9-10).

    But Loren doesn't know hate.

    Life is easy with the young woman. Yet she doesn't have an easy life. Her husband has a drinking problem, which makes him irascible, aggressive, bad. And Loren puts up with it, without saying anything.

    But dreams are watching over her, and she received this dream that she confided to me:

    Dream

    I'm sitting at a table in a bar. I see a man coming towards me. He hands me a package, it's a gift. I take it and look at it: it's a chocolate bar, the one I used to eat when I was little. It's Kohler chocolate.

    She woke up amazed.

    Let's conduct the interpretation methodically.

    The bar

    The first picture shows a place in everyday life, where one can stop and sit down for a moment of relaxation, regain strength, have something to eat.

    christiane riedel, christiane riedel dream interpreter, christiane riedel dream interpretation, christiane riedel dream interpretation school, christiane riedel dream interpretation academy, dream interpretation, marianne schertenleib, marianne schertenleib dream interpreter, anger, anger in dreams, benefits of anger, chocolate, man in dreams, man, bar

    The dreamer explains to me that she rarely goes to a bar, she doesn't have the time and finds it useless to spend money in this way.

    So this dream is about relaxing and regaining strength.

    Loren in everyday life is tired, tense, dissatisfied, without realising it. And she doesn't allow herself to take time for herself, to regain energy.

    A man brings her a chocolate bar.
    A man

    As I have often explained before, the only thing that distinguishes a man from a woman is his sex, which manifests itself in the outside world, whereas the sex of a woman is inside her body.

    So what does the penis symbolically mean? It designates what is called the phallic force, that is to say the capacity to assert oneself in the world of matter, thanks to the creative power of the idea, of thought, and thanks to the strength to fight to give form to an idea.

    This man, whom the dreamer doesn't know, shows her that she has within her the power to assert herself in the outside world and to fight for a result as well. But Loren doesn't know this.

    The chocolate bar

    Who doesn't like chocolate? But Loren doesn't eat it. It's not in her habits.

    It's a dark brown substance, she tells me, that you bite into and it melts in your mouth, it's very good, it's very pleasurable and it's tonic.

    Let's recapitulate the meaning of the previous images:

    When it comes to regaining strength (the bar), the dream presents our friend with a man: her capacity for affirmation, of which she has no idea. This stranger offers her something to help her assert herself, something good, that pleases, that gives her strength.

    What is it?

    Could it be the sexual relationship with her husband? It is true that chocolate often represents the voluptuous pleasures of love.

    I'll check it out. Everything Loren said about chocolate must then also be able to be said about her love relationship with her husband.

    The young woman explained that she is not used to eating chocolate. Does this mean that she rarely makes love? No. This is not the case at all. Sexual intimacy is frequent in her couple.

    What is it then?

    It's Kohler chocolate, the chocolate Loren ate when she was little.

    The dreamer learned German in school, and still remembers it well enough to know that "die Kohle" means coal and "der Kohler" means coalman.

    Ah, Coalman chocolate, like Suchard or Nestlé chocolate.

    So why does the dream choose this brand rather than another?

    Kohler

    Isn't there a play on words? Of course there is! If you happen to speak French, you will know that "Kohler" sounds like "colère", which means anger! This chocolate is anger!

    christiane riedel, christiane riedel dream interpreter, christiane riedel dream interpretation, christiane riedel dream interpretation school, christiane riedel dream interpretation academy, dream interpretation, marianne schertenleib, marianne schertenleib dream interpreter, anger, anger in dreams, benefits of anger, chocolate, man in dreams, man, bar

    Let's do the checks:

    - Loren ate chocolate when she was little. Did she get angry as a child? "Yes," she says, she used to fight with her brothers and sisters and she was no pushover.

    - "Chocolate is good, it makes you happy and gives you strength," said Loren. What about anger?

    - "Yes," exclaimed the young woman, "when you've said what's on your heart, it's a relief, it feels good, it makes you feel better".

    So, check it out, Kohler chocolate is anger. Loren needs to taste her anger.

    The dreamer looks at me dubious, dubious. What!? She should let her anger build up and express it?

    She tells me that she often feels a shock in her stomach, every time something doesn't seem right and hurts her, but she pushes this signal away, she prevents herself from reacting to avoid conflict, she handles her emotions, she always remains calm and likeable. She shuts up.

    Well, no, no, and no! The dream offers her something else. It advises her from now on to assert herself and, in order to do so, to decide to say what is in her heart, to get angry. But then, it's not peace, no, there is going to be war in the marriage!

    Loren went home very puzzled. And it wasn't long before she had the opportunity to feel the strength that she had been pushing back inside her, and courageously, expecting a terrible scene, for once she threw a tantrum, said her disagreement, said her anger.

    And then, ... surprise... she felt relieved, liberated, at ease and full of energy.

    In front of her, her husband, dumbfounded, listened to her indignation, looked at her without saying a word. And when she fell silent, he said to her:

    - I didn't know you were so beautiful when you're angry.

    It was without irony, it was sincere, to make up for it.

    He approached her, he took her in his arms and held her close to him.

    Loren hid her face on that solid chest and in her head she heard herself say:

    - My God! If I had known! How inhibited I have been, and how stupid!

    christiane riedel, christiane riedel dream interpreter, christiane riedel dream interpretation, christiane riedel dream interpretation school, christiane riedel dream interpretation academy, dream interpretation, marianne schertenleib, marianne schertenleib dream interpreter, anger, anger in dreams, benefits of anger, chocolate, man in dreams, man, bar

    Does this mean that Loren will always have to get systematically angry? Certainly not. Dreams have come to compensate for an imbalance of which she was unaware. They advised her to follow her instinctive reaction. The external principles are valid, of course, but the internal reaction is more accurate and always better suited to the circumstances of the moment. Respecting her emotion, being faithful to her feelings, that is what the young woman must learn. And anger is one of them. It's coal from the coalman, and it gives energy, the energy of the earth.

    Christiane
    Translated by Marianne

    Dear friends, here you are informed about anger, the energy of the coalman, of coal, the energy that comes from the deep earth. Are you astonished?... Then wait for next time's dream, an extremely rare dream that fell into Christiane's hands under exceptional circumstances, it's a priceless dream!... that may make you angry...?

    See you soon!

    Les rêves ne vous disent pas ce que vous attendez

  • A MOST SURPRISING CAREER BEGINNING ...

    Print

    Dear blog friends,

    Today, I would like to share with you the great happiness I have just experienced.

    This great happiness is in fact a great surprise. Wait... you will be amazed! But no more than I am! And I didn't receive just one surprise, they all followed each other and I was delighted!

    First surprise:

    In the course of December, when I was passionately translating for you the studies on the correspondence between the inner psychic world of the unconscious and the outer world of matter, the dreams all of a sudden showed me that I could present myself as a dream interpreter, yes, that I could begin to interpret dreams. Oh!

    christiane riedel,marianne schertenleib,dream interpretation,marianne schertenleib dream interpreter,dream interview method,gayle delaney,mean,anger,pregnant,pregnant woman,defending oneself,being mean,alchemy

    Second surprise:

    The unconscious has sent me immediately a dreamer who brought me her dream. How about that! Amazing!

    christiane riedel,marianne schertenleib,dream interpretation,marianne schertenleib dream interpreter,dream interview method,gayle delaney,mean,anger,pregnant,pregnant woman,defending oneself,being mean,alchemy

    Third surprise :

    The message of the dream left me stunned.

    You know, for years, Christiane has been trying to show that dreams invite us to behave in a way that is the opposite of what we think is right. On pages and pages, articles and articles, she has given proof of this.

    But all her assurance, all her demonstrations, with dreams to back them up, have always left me a little sceptical. Indeed, it seems obvious to me, as to you surely, that certain behaviours are necessary: being kind, understanding, patient, not judging people, that is part of our education!

    Yes, well, damn it! Now a dream has come to me that proves Christiane's point. And it's the first dream I've had to interpret in my career as a dream interpreter!

    The dream is not lacking in humour!

    Fortunately Christiane had warned me, otherwise I would have been unable to understand this dream.
    Let me have the pleasure to tell you about my adventure and to introduce you first to the person who received this dream:

    Tania is a beautiful young woman, a real ray of sunshine for all those who are lucky enough to meet her. At work, she is always smiling and welcoming, full of energy and joie de vivre. She receives with deep empathy the confidences of everyone. Thanks to her, the big company in which she works is more welcoming and humane.

    On the morning of December 16th, Tania woke up with a dream that surprised her. Here it is:

    Dream

    I dreamt about my sister-in-law.
    She was pregnant.

    femme enceinte au divan rouge johanne molaison.jpg

    That morning she first asked her mother what the dream might mean. She answered that the dream might be premonitory and that her sister-in-law might be pregnant... Mmmh.... This hypothesis left Tania sceptical. Is the character in the dream external or internal? Like everyone else, Tania's mother thought that the character in the dream was an external character. We'll see what it is.

    Remembering that I study the interpretation of dreams, the dreamer called me.

    In the course of our interview, I elucidated the meaning of the dream symbols using a remarkable method, which is constantly proving its effectiveness and accuracy: the dream interview method. It was created in the 1970s by the American Gayle Delaney (1), a doctor in clinical psychology. Following Gayle Delaney, Christiane has spread this technique in France, she has often explained it to you on the blog (2), and following Christiane, I also pass it on to you. This method is very rigorous and makes it possible to interpret a dream outside of any prior interpretation grid and any dictionary of symbols. Instead, the interpreter tailors the interpretation to suit the individual.

    How to proceed with this technique?

    For each symbol, I collect the dreamer's personal associations, and I ask her the following two questions each time:

    1) If the symbol is a person I ask the question: Who is it?
    If the symbol is an object, a place, an action, I ask the question: What is it?

    I carefully note down the answer. Then I move on to the second question:

    2) For a person I ask: What is she like?
    For an object, a place, an action, I ask: What is it like?

    Now let's see what Tania told me about the images of her dream:

    - Your sister-in-law (I already know who she is), what is she like?

    - Do you really want to know? Can I be frank? She's mean! She didn't want me to go to my brother's wedding! She didn't even tell me why! I think she's jealous, because I was very close to my brother before. She did everything she could to keep him and me apart.

    Let's recap:

    - So your sister-in-law is mean... She brutally imposes her will.

    I asked Tania:

    - Do you agree?

    - Yes!

    Then I had to link the symbol to Tania's daily life. Very often, the dream comes to comment on the events of the day before.

    So I asked Tania the fundamental question that we will find again and again:

    - What does it remind you of, yesterday, inside or outside of you, a way of being mean?

    The answer came without hesitation:

    - But it reminds me of the email I sent yesterday to my colleagues at work! At the moment, it's hell at work, nothing's going well. So I gathered all my courage and I explained in this email everything that was wrong! I got things straight! And believe me, I didn't mince my words!

    This little analysis gave us a first hypothesis of the meaning of the image.

    - So your sister-in-law would represent the one in you who was mean in writing this email.

    Let's check if this hypothesis is right:

    - By writing this email, did you do AS your sister-in-law did, you brutally imposed your will, you opposed your colleagues, just as your sister-in-law opposed you about your brother's wedding?

    - Oh yes!

    Meaning of the symbol:

    So Tania behaved like her sister-in-law. We have checked that the comparison is correct, so our assumption is correct and we can be sure that the sister-in-law in the dream represents Tania.

    Let's now look at the second symbol of the dream:

    The sister-in-law was pregnant.

    ventre-femme-enceinte-de-face Philippe Flohic.jpg

    - Tania, being pregnant, what is it?

    - It's when you're expecting a baby! It's bringing a new life! I can tell you about it, I gave birth eight months ago!

    - So tell me, what is it like to be pregnant ?

    - It's like spring: everything is new, you start a new page of life.

    épanouie Adéline Albert.jpg

    But how hard it is! Very hard! It's also a leap into the unknown, it's scary.

    Let's recapitulate now:

    - Being pregnant means preparing oneself to bring something new into the world. And it's hard, it's a leap into the unknown, it's scary. What does it remind you of, yesterday, inside or outside of you, preparing oneself to bring something new into the world?

    - I hope this email I sent will make a difference.

    - Was it hard? Was it a leap into the unknown that scared you?

    - Yes, it was! I was wondering if I had been right to write this message, if I hadn't gone too far. It's not in my nature to write this kind of things. Usually I'm very discreet, and when I don't like something, I keep it to myself. But this was impossible, it was out of bounds! I was very harsh, you know, I surprised myself!

    We have just checked the accuracy of the interpretation.

    I took over the interpretation with Tania :

    - Your mean sister-in-law is pregnant, so this mean attitude you had while writing this mail will bring something new! This message will bear fruit, it will have an effect!

    - Ah but it's true! Well, this morning, following this email, I had an interview with my colleagues and it turns out that I won my case!

    - So the dream came to reassure you about it, because it was hard to write this email, like pregnancy, it was a leap into the unknown that frightened you. You had a lot of doubts.

    pexels-petr-ganaj-Lion.jpg

    The dream warns you that this way of being mean, of defending yourself ferociously is fruitful, it brings about changes that are beneficial for you. It reminds you of the importance of thumping your fist on the table to assert yourself when necessary.

    - I will remember it! I feel full of energy, said Tania, with a smile in her voice. It brightens up my day! Thank you!

    Dear blog friends, this was a short dream with a very clear message.

    I hope it will encourage you to bare fangs too when the time comes, to defend yourselves fiercely against those who go too far and take advantage of your kindness. A "mean" attitude can be fruitful, with excellent consequences for the benefit of those around you!

    roi lion alex makwana.jpg

    And if you were too mean, don't be afraid, a dream will come to warn you that you have gone too far!

    If I hadn't already received for myself dreams that advised me to get angry, I wouldn't have been able to understand Tania's dream. It plunges us into alchemy, the cursed and saving therapy. The dream asks us to broaden our range of behaviour and adapt it to the circumstances. Sometimes, what is bad is precisely what is good!

    And how happy we are when we express our anger, when we are fair and true to ourselves!

    This, dear blog friends, is the theme of the studies that is now emerging: anger.

    A reality that will surprise many, a reality that will relieve many others, a reality of rare therapeutic power for all.

    See you next time!
