an unsolicited advice column (#6 in a series on dreams)
Your perceptiveness really strikes, hits home, thank you: after a baffling dream fragment from which I awoke only this morning, heart racing (or so it seemed). Three men stood around a desk with me, and I had this strong impression that they'd spied a secret password for a credit card in my name but that we all, for some reason shared. One man noted he wanted to charge a bunch of new tattoos... Not exactly brakes failing, but....
“Nobody wants to do it, but the first step is to feel the fear. What’s it like to feel your car moving of its own accord sans brakes? Where in your past or present have you felt this way? What language coheres to the emotion, what specific, concrete concerns does this bring up? Can you sit with your fear all the way to the end of the feeling, and be curious to see what might happen next? How does your creativity already move you, and maybe most importantly, can you guess how even more wants to come through?”
Loved this investigative approach, I’ll try that for myself too :)
