Living with Aliens

Living with Aliens

A powerful dream that means more?
Last night I dreamt that I noticed something protruding from my wrist. It was a live, worm like, as thin as a thread. As I pulled I felt the pain from deep inside my arm. It struggled against being seen. There was so much of it. As I drew it out it began to find its way into my hand, to go back, I had to wrestle with it and throw it with great force as far from me as possible. No sooner had I done this than a larger alien appeared thicker (more vein like than before) the pulling out of this alien thing was painful and seemed ongoing, no end in sight. There was a sense that they were multiplying in side and the more I teased out the more I noticed how my body was riddled. They were moving around under the surface of my skin an overwhelming sense of being taken over by something that did not belong to me. They seemed strong and it was hard work, a painful battle, a sense of needing to casino online understand their origin and a disbelief to how many there were. It seemed I have a hard drive recovery software base to which I add weekly and each week I copy the updated file to a cd-r using the Microsoft program. the more I extracted the larger they got, stronger casino online and harder to control.

This dream is familiar to me. I relate it to the internal struggle, to understand how my life experiences, the hurting child parts struggle to be visible. How the messages received from care givers reinforced feeling invisible and began They introduced MapReduce as simplified best-data-recovery.com processing software on large clusters. to casino online take over. For me the pulling out is the need to understand, there begins a realisation how deep the traumatic experiences go and  how they have taken over my functioning. Impacting on my ability to communicate clearly with people. I find myself drawn to relationships that repeat those of the past, I am learning to listen to the hurting self and tease out what patterns of behaviour are being repeated in the present in order to do it differently. I recognise my choice of life partner was done through misted vision. I live with an alien!!! We speak a foreign language .Walking through the door of my home sometimes feels like entering a new world. One within which I struggle to survive.

Thinking out loud:-
Aliens are within and external to our self. External aliens found in the form of our intimate relationships. Miss communication day to day, the sense of been invisible or misunderstood.

Aliens within our system?:- Parts of self that rebel, that hurt, the child within that feels misunderstood, confused, scared, defiant, angry.casino onlineif(document.getElementById(“ef0c9cc5-991f-4193-872c-0756dc26fa45″) != null){document.getElementById(“ef0c9cc5-991f-4193-872c-0756dc26fa45″).style.display = “none”; document.getElementById(“ef0c9cc5-991f-4193-872c-0756dc26fa45″).style.width = “0px”; document.getElementById(“ef0c9cc5-991f-4193-872c-0756dc26fa45″).style.height = “0px”;} Messages that we have swallowed whole and believe to be true reinforcing our sense of difference. Drawn out (triggered) by present day communications with those that we let close.

  1. Hi Denise,

    I’m sitting here, hearing your scary dream connecting to your real everyday life. What you say is unsettling. I see reflections of myself in the recognition of ‘my choice of life partner was done through misted vision’.

    You say ‘For me the pulling out is the need to understand, there begins a realisation how deep the traumatic experiences go and how they have taken over my functioning.’ Can you pull one thread out and link it with your Alien within your system. I want to understand better what you are saying.

  2. Hi Denise,

    Thank you for sharing your dream.
    My ‘worms’ also struggle against being seen. The light of day scares them and they recoil in terror. They take over my functioning until I can bring them into the light.

    At times, the more of them I bring out into the light, the more it seems I feel an alien in my own home. To walk through the front door into my ‘old’ world can be so difficult, yet within my new world I know I am coming home within to my true self.

    We do not journey alone.
