THE DREAM : Dream one: POISENING A ROTTWIELER PUP
The neighbor’s in this dream bought a rottwieler pup and I decided something had to be done about it before it got too big. After talking it over with my husband I decided to go ahead and poison it.
I expected the pup to die quickly but it didn’t and I found its suffering at my hands distressing. The neighbor’s were angry when they found out what I had done and I offered them $10,000.00 in compensation as it was a rare breed and a valuable dog. In the dream I realized quickly no amount of compensation would be enough. I had a lot of regrets about the unintended outcomes of my action.
The little pup was still alive as the dream closed but there seemed no way to help it. Even euthanasia by a vet seemed a long way off and I truly regretted the suffering I had caused the little pup. Even so I did not want it to become a fully grown Rottweiler and did not want this dog in my neighborhood so my feelings were mixed.
Dream two: WALKING THE BAR
In this dream I was at an accommodation block on my own with a common quadrangle area and I decided to join in the activities there. The people were not to my liking but they were benign enough. Each person was to perform in some way but I was not comfortable with the setup. There were people who had set themselves up behind the act and I spoke to them saying I was not comfortable with them seeing my rear end.
The dream moved on to the overall task I was involved in and there seemed to be a single rail the size of a balancing beam crossing the landscape. I was following the leader by walking on the top of the single bar and felt comfortable as it traversed the ground.
The ground narrowed to a point that jutted into a deep and newly constructed dam and the beam proved to be the way to walk across to the other side of the dam about 200 yards away. The leader walked at the same steady pace he had been going the whole way out over the dam and I followed a little till I heard my husband’s voice saying don’t go out there – it’s too dangerous.
I suddenly looked at the tan coloured choppy water full of newly suspended clay for the recent earthworks to construct the dam and I lost all my confidence. I felt sick with fear and turned back to the safely of the bank when I really wanted to get to the other side of the dam.
Again I tried to walk that beam and just gun it but my husband’s voice was so full of a commanding fear I could not overcome it and I woke up. I was so afraid of falling into that water if I had gone further from the shore even though logic told me the steel beam was rock steady.
THE BACKGROUND:The common theme in these two dreams is my husband’s voice.
In the first dream I made a decision to end a friendship I valued because I felt it had the potential of becoming emotionally dangerous to my relationship with my husband. While the friendship was benign my friend is a strong fundamentalist Christian who is forthright to a level that often offends me. I could see fireworks if this friend and my husband ever met and decided to stop it there. I ended the friendship the next day after this dream even though I valued it and it helped me with my personal struggles.
Here is my major personal struggle. I am trying to work through some paperwork I hate so much I am finding it impossible to face. Each time I try to do it I feel sick and come up with any excuse I can to get out of it. I have been trying to do it every day since December last year and I find it impossible to face so I have tinkered around the edges by setting up my work area and putting the papers in nice folders all neat a tidy.
I have the last part of the work to do – the hardest part and I just can’t face it even though I must. I have to get to the other bank in my dream and the only way there is the narrow steel beam across the choppy water. I know I can do it but I am afraid of drowning in the emotions stored up for me in the work I will have to do.
This dream is the first time in 7 years I have been able to see a sure path to the other side of my paperwork mess so I am both excited and afraid. To do this work I have to switch off my husband’s voice and I find his voice so compelling I am still not able to ignore it. I am writing this dream up and posting it as my commitment to myself that I can do what is possible even if I feel the fear of doing it is emotionally overwhelming for me.
The beam is made of solid steel and will hold my weight without flexing. I can see the way and I am following a leader who is showing me it can be done. I need to follow my leader and ignore everything else but putting one foot in front of another.
When I got up today I walked across the kitchen from one side to the other on a line on the floor without falling to prove to myself I can walk 200 yards on a balancing beam.

Well the first dream is very interesting. I suspect it shows that you are feeling a little guilty ... compensation kind of hints that part of feels that you are in the wrong... yet sometimes we do things that we feel we have to do.
Dreams do capture these mixed feelings. Life is about balancing various feelings. Sometimes we wonder if we have made the right decision.

I am feeling guilty that there is sometimes an unexpected cost to the decisions we make when the choices are hard.
