Dreamwork 03 Working with Dream Symbolism + 3 Card Spread for Analysis

Symbols can have Universal meanings, the one that is present in the Collective Consciousness, and also a Personal Meaning. I recommend that you keep a dream journal to keep track of what has been happening in your dreams: what you encounter, what you see and interact with. And also where are these symbols seen, what is happening when they appear. What do they do to you? What do you do to them? Is it a tool? Does it change? Is it static? How to do you feel when you see these symbols? Do you hear or taste anything? Do you feel anything Kinetically or Emotionally? All these little details can tie together to form a complex meaning of what the symbol is to you.

Most importantly, what does the symbol mean to you on a personal level? Within your own personal history, your life, any circumstances in which this symbol came up. What have you learned about this: What have people told you about this symbol, and what have you learned through your own research. You can also look online to find common meanings for this symbol in Dream Analysis. I recommend that you emphasize your personal meaning of this card before you look for information about what this symbol means to other people, because they are not you. Yes there are basic Archetypes, and meanings within the collective consciousness. However, dreams are deeply personal and customized for our subconscious, in our dream world, in our personal adventure.

If you work with Cartomancy, here is a simple three card spread that can help us analyze the meaning of a symbol within our dreams:

I also give an example by reading about my personal symbol, The Scorpion, which has reoccured in various dreams around three times already.


Grounding with The Arrow Custom Card Layout/Spread

I am in a Tarot Jouraling group who’s theme this week is Grounding, which is important to all of us. As we go through our day, knowing what keeps us centered and grounded can help us deal with life’s frustrations. I actually like to tack on Grounding and Crownings cards to virtually All my readings because they Really help me out, especially when I am going through personal drama, burn out, or a breakdown caused by all those combined with the burden of all my freelance and personal projects that I am working on.

The Arrow

The Arrow - Grounding

  • 1 The Self : How I am am in this present moments
  • 2 & 3 How the situation I am in affects mes
  • 4, 5, & 6 What helps to ground mes
  • 7 What is at my Core. What drives me and keeps me going, and or the core project or issue that I am working on.
  • 8 What Crowns me in this situations

So after making this and calling it The Arrow instead of The Tree like I was considering, I realized that The Green Arrow is the name of a Marvel Super Hero and a Television series named after him. I find this coincidence very interesting because he is an Archer, a person who uses a bow and arrows! The symbol for Focus in the Sacred Symbols Oracle Deck by Marcella Kroll is a bow and arrow! oo synchronicity!

Focus!

Grounding helps me focus. Focusing help me Ground. A unique statement who’s converse has the same Truth Value, hence if you negate it, it will also be False->False both ways.

Here is the reading I did for myself:
The Arrow : my spread

I am working with Spirit to manifest my goals. The current situation brings domestic instability, hence I become more nurturing by connecting to the Earth energy and solidifying my confidence so that I can support others. What grounds me is my analytical capabilities combined with my focus on goals while not distracting myself with idle chatter. At my core I am working towards balancing all the different aspects of my life, and what crowns or highlights my experience is the love and harmony that I share with the Universe, which encompasses me and all of everything.

While we rush about our day, trying to maintain the balance or time, the flow of money in and out of our lives, and the nurturing of ourselves as well as others; keeping a space for love in our hearts: where we can love ourselves and know that the Universe loves us, makes the whole world magical. Here, in this is a crazy magical wonderland, we stand with our soul and apply wit and focus to the vibration of our hearts as we pass through various mazes and portals.

Also! I am going to start hosting weekly Periscope talks starting Next week! Next week I will be on Periscope hosting a talk about Grounding on Monday 5/9 and Tuesday 5/10 at 12pm Pacific time. I am trying to decide which day is better for people, but I will be live on Periscope on Both days from 12-12:30pm Pacific time. Make sure to follow me @lunadeltarot!
