Revenge Dreams.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

If I dream repeatedly of revenging someone who wronged me a long time ago (though I thought I had forgiven, forgotten and moved on and never did consciously think of him), does it mean that the inner wounds were never healed? Is it a process of healing, through meditation, that these wounds are revived? How do we come to know that healing is complete? I started meditation about two years back and I had been feeling contented and happy till these dreams started.

It’s hard to be definitive where interpreting dreams is concerned, but it does seem likely that dreams of revenge indicate that your efforts at forgiveness did not fully penetrate your subconscious mind. So yes, the inner wounds were not fully healed. You know that the healing is complete when you no longer harbor anger, guilt or blame toward yourself for every being in that situation. That means that you forgive yourself and no longer judge yourself harshly. And don’t feel bad that these dreams indicate that you have more healing to do on this issue. Take it as a loving reminder that there is more work to do and that now you are in a greater position of strength where you can now forgive yourself and really move on.

    This is an old thread but one that holds much insight. Pain is inevitable in this life but with hard work commitment and focus ,suffering can be reduced - even eliminated. Forgiveness is central to reducing suffering and the ancient Polynesian Ho`ono`ponono prayer can be very helpful here. After or during meditation you bring to mind anyone that has hurt you - or anyone whom you feel guilty about having let down ( this can include yourself)You repeat the words silently and said from the heart: I am so sorry; please forgive me; I thank you; I love you. This is difficult to do with folk that have hurt you but through repetition one begins to see that forgiveness begets forgiveness, compassion and ultimately acceptance of the situation. Love and light

    One of the primary missions of meditation, as taught by the Buddha, is to bring consciousness to our suffering (dukkha). It is only when you learn to be completely present with your emotional pain, without judgement, aversion or any form of reactivity (this is mindfulness) that the emotion can heal. This is the first mission of Buddhist meditation - the healing of suffering and the discovery of freedom within. This provides the foundation for Right Action and all the other skillful actions known as the Noble Eightfold Path. But all begins with the quality of healing within your own heart.

    What I`ve experienced in the past week, is the beginning of a tremendous healing that I thought I had dealt with. I can even somewhat determine some of the process. I must have pushed these experiences so far into my subconscious mind that it has taken decades to unearth them. The internal struggle had been unfolding for a long time, and finally got to the point that I just couldn`t handle it anymore. My surrender to the desire to be free of anger, rage, and resentment is bringing me to a way of being that I have never experienced in my life. I know I owe some of this process to my reading and integrating of "The Third Jesus" by Deepak Chopra and "Empowering Women" by Louise Haye. Healing is a process, struggle is truly optional.
