Shooting down a sense of Self

It bothers Dream Momma too. There’s a lot here and what it all boils down to is an identity crisis. Tony must have done a real number on you for him to get into your head and take up residence. In this dream you are trying to get back into your own identity (knocking on door) but you are threatened by gun shaped keys. Is that what happened when you asserted yourself with Tony? Did you feel threatened? The heroine in this dream is of course the cleaning lady, the healthy part of you that wants to scrub Tony right out of your head. Unfortunately she’s in another apartment and not available just yet. But wait, along comes your dream guide and asks Tony or rather the part of you that has Tony in your head why he isn’t liked. Interesting.

Here’s what you need to do. First rewrite this dream and in it tell the guy with the gun shaped keys to “F off.” It’s OK; it’s your dream. Next turn to your left where the cleaning lady is and click your heels three times…that will let her out. Together with the cleaning lady and your dream guide rechristen yourselves “Charlie’s Angels" then beat the crap out of Tony, and banish him, along with the guy with the gun to a remote jungle where only Amazonian Warrior cannibal women live. Hah!

Seriously, Do it. It’s extremely important to get your emotional and psychological real estate back from this guy or no one’s going to like you either, most importantly yourself.

Dream Momma

“Dream Momma, Had a bad breakup recently with a guy named Tony (not his real name). In the dream I am knocking on the door of an apartment like mine. To my right is someone with keys shaped like a gun. To my left is someone trying to get out (possibly a cleaning person) of another apartment. When no one answers I turn as do the others when a woman in front of me facing the door says, Well, Hello Tony, why doesn’t anyone like you?” I turn and see Tony behind me and ask him something and he is hostile to me. This dream really bothers me.”
