Dream of flying back to home country and seeing grandfather and grandmother on the plane. Told at the Dream Research Institute, in the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London, 15th July 2023.
I come out of the toilet on a private jet, having washed my hands. I walk on the red carpet down the plane and look out of a small window. Below is my home country, Latvia, it is Autumn, and I see green trees, brown trees, some dead trees, and possibly some water or a lake, but there are no houses. The plane is travelling from the UK to Latvia, it is flying low and I know it will be landing in about 20 minutes. I am aware of the presence of the pilot and a stewardess, although I don't see them, and I know I am in good hands. I sit down at a pink sofa, sitting opposite my grandfather. I am surprised as he looks as he did in his 30s, with black hair, black t-shirt and smart black jacket. He looks at me very lovingly, I feel warmth between us and I ask 'Why are you here?' Behind him I see my grandmother, standing and being busy, she looks as she did when younger; she is mature and protecting and reassuring. She is wearing a brown skirt and grey top. I don't want to focus on my grandmother and so go back to my grandfather. Without actually speaking I ask him 'Why are you here? Why now?' I know he is there to support and protect and guide me.
We discussed the relationship of the dream to the dreamer’s intention to soon return from living in the UK to her home country, Latvia, where she was brought up by her grandparents.
Below is a photograph of Julia describing and discussing the painting of the dream. In reference to the dreamer's grandfather and grandmother, Julia highlighted in the painting the words 'relation' and 'the two relations'. We were very glad to have this event at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, which is the largest training centre for transpersonal psychotherapy in Europe.
