Explore Your Dreams: How Movies Speak to Us in Dreams

by Cathy Pagano September 11, 2010 05:39 PM EST

I’m sure many of you have had the experience of dreaming of an image or situation that you just watched in a movie or TV show.  Our unconscious picks up images from our daily lives, and that includes the images we see around us in nature, what happens at work or home or while socializing, what we read in books and what we see at the movies.  That’s why it is so important to consciously pick which movies we watch, because the images in them do influence us on an unconscious level.


This dreamer had just watched Robert Redford’s The Horse Whisperer the evening before this dream.


I have to help a young girl named Faith take care of Pilgrim, the horse that was injured in The Horse Whisperer.  I realize that I’m also taking care of a child and a tiger.

That’s quite a dream task for one person – taking care of an injured horse, a tiger and a child.  This dreamer is busy!

The horse Pilgrim from the movie was severely injured and was supposed to be put down, but he wasn’t.  He was taken to the horse whisperer who helped him, and his rider, heal.  Animals represent our instinctual nature, and when we dream of injured animals, it means that our instincts aren’t being listened to.  When we don’t trust our instincts, we go against nature and really harm ourselves.  This dreamer is like most of us in this respect.  We have all been injured by the patriarchal culture we live in which has worked hard through the centuries to separate us from our instinctual nature.  The trouble we find ourselves in now, collectively and personally, is a reflection of that separation.


In this dream, the dreamer has to help a little girl named Faith help Pilgrim.  The girl named Faith is that part of the dreamer who needs to have faith in herself and her life.  There’s obviously some injury to her energy and her sense of power (the horse) but the idea of being a pilgrim certainly indicates that this dreamer is a spiritual seeker and she needs to have faith that life has not abandoned her.  Like the horse whisperer, she needs to have patience and work slowly if she wants to heal her life.


The young child symbolizes new potentials of feeling and being that this woman is cultivating, probably after some kind of spiritual ‘dark night of the soul’.  That’s part of the spiritual process – we have to go into the darkness before we can come to the light again.  The child symbolizes the new potential that was born out of the darkness.


 The tiger is a powerful symbol, often representing fear because it is so primal and intense.  Tigers represent  both passion and power, exactly what this dreamer is missing because her horse nature, which symbolizes a sense of movement and freedom in her life, has been injured .  As a matter of fact, this woman has been without a car for over a year.  Now something is shifting in her life.   This dream indicates that this dreamer is heading into a time where new adventures will be opening up in her life.  Perhaps she’ll be able to get a car again soon.

 
One thing is certain.  This dream indicates that it’s time to be patient with herself and reclaim her faith in life again.

Until next time,
Sweet Dreams!
