in a dream can represent something evil or - in contrast - something beautiful
in nature. This dualism becomes problematic when I examine wolves in my dreams.
Dream of:27 February 1982 "Curse Of The Wolf"
cursed from birth, freed by death
I owned a large dog which resembled a German Shepherd or a wolf which my father had seemingly given to me.After I somehow deduced that I was going to have to kill the dog, I went to my father and told him what I had to do. I also told my father a curse was on him, and a curse was on me. I was unsure how the curse had been placed on him, but I knew that he had placed the curse on me. If I didn't kill the dog, then someday when the dog died, it would return and destroy me.
Killing the dog was especially difficult for me because it was beautiful and I cared very much for it. Realizing that my father seemed to understand my feelings, I enlisted his help to kill the dog. He and I discussed the matter, and I explained to him that I would have to shoot the dog twice, once in its body and once in its neck. It was very important that I shoot the dog both times.
We led the dog out into the backyard, which seemed like the backyard of the House in Patriot, Ohio (the home of my maternal grandparents when I was a child). Other people standing around the yard watched us. I had a large gun which seemed like a shotgun. As my father held the dog on a leash, I pointed the gun at the dog and pulled the trigger. When the gun clicked without firing, I said, "There's something wrong."
As I worked with the gun and tried to figure out the problem, the dog began to catch on to what we were doing and I became concerned that it might try to attack me. Finally I pointed the gun at the dog again and fired. The bullet hit the dog's body and the dog fell over, but it wasn't yet dead. It then stood up, and headed toward me. Although my father was still holding the dog by the leash, I thought the dog was going to reach me. I aimed again, fired, and hit the dog in the neck. The dog fell over again and bled profusely, but it still wasn't dead - so I shot it again in the neck. It lay there gasping, obviously dying. I regretted having shot the dog, but as it gasped its last breaths, I felt as if a great burden had been lifted from me.
Another dualism present with wolves is the Dr. Jekyll - Mr. Hyde, or the werewolf type. Again the element of something evil combating with something good.
Dream of:08 June 1983 "Acting The Werewolf"
will power can control the beast
While I was standing in the left corner in the front of an auditorium, similar to a classroom, another fellow was standing on my left, and Julie (a fellow law student from Baylor Law School), was standing on my right. Julie was quite friendly and had even laid her arm on mine. I felt close to her, and as she and I talked about people dating and becoming close, I thought she was a Christian and I knew I wasn't a Christian. I told her it wouldn't be a good idea for someone who was a Christian to date someone who wasn't a Christian. I said, "It just causes complications later on because the people won't change their beliefs."
I stuck out my lower teeth and showed my incisors like a vampire or werewolf in an attempt to demonstrate how different people could be. I was trying to portray the image she would have of me if she were a good Christian and I was a heathen.
I was hot and perspiring profusely, which seemed to bother Julie. When I laid my hands on the stage of the auditorium, I noticed I had left water drops. I didn't know what to do about it.
In front of us was a stage from which Dawson (a law professor) was conducting a class. I was angry because it was about 3:30 p.m. and he had decided to keep us overtime. When he finally walked out of the room, I stood up on the stage. I thought I would act out something or maybe even sing, but instead I just walked around like a fool, until people began laughing. Realizing the people were watching me, I felt silly and I walked out of the room.
I tried to think what I could do. I thought I could get out my dreams and begin working on them and arranging them. I knew I had my dreams in a yellow notebook. I also had copies of the dreams in a red notebook upstairs. I could work on the copies in the red notebook, and if I made any changes, I could transfer them later to the yellow notebook.
After walking up two flights of stairs, I realized that the rooms were different from what I had expected and that I wasn't where I thought I would be. People were all around. I became frightened and I thought I should go back downstairs, but something happened and I fell over. It also seemed as if someone were chasing me. I began thinking I could just fly out of there. I thought that I had small rockets attached to my legs close to my heels and that if I used my will, I could use those rockets to fly. When I began using my will, the rockets worked and I began flying away, but I wasn't very good at it, and I simply flew back and forth in a big, empty hallway. I continued because I knew if I stopped I wouldn't be able to start again. I continued trying to understand how to use my will to control the rockets.
The dream-wolf might therefore be looked at as something with a two-fold nature, or more specifically as something evil which can be changed into something beautiful.
Dream of:28 June 1983 "Evading The Werewolf"
man is evil by nature
I met Leonard Calloway (a fellow about 60 years old whom I was helping with a legal problem) and accompanied him into what appeared to be a bar. A man in the bar apparently owed Calloway $5, but the man didn't want to give Calloway the money. When I told the man to give the money to Calloway, the man refused. Finally, however, the man pulled out a five dollar bill and laid it on the counter, but underneath the five dollar bill the man had put a small cellophane packet of white powder. The powder was clearly some kind of drug, probably cocaine. Since I was afraid if Calloway took the five dollar bill, someone watching him might think he was also taking the drug and arrest him, I insisted that the other man simply hand the five dollars to me, but he refused.
Calloway, who seemed quite inebriated onalcohol, was obviously becoming angry. I thought he had probably been inebriated and angry like this on the night he had told me about when he had been arrested in Temple, Texas, and I was afraid Calloway was becoming so angry that he would begin hitting the other man. Finally, while the man was standing in a corner, I grabbed the five dollars. I began calling Calloway "Johnson" and I said, "Johnson, lets go."
By that time, Calloway was so intoxicated that he was leaning against the wall and couldn't move. I turned around to leave and saw standing in front of me a gigantic man who looked like a werewolfblocking my path. Fortunately, he was so large and cumbersome he couldn't move quickly and I managed to slip past him. To Calloway, who hadn't managed to pass the werewolf, I hollered, "Johnson! Lets go! Lets go!"
The werewolf headed toward Calloway who wasn't moving quickly enough. When I headed back to Calloway, another man named "Davis" was standing in my way, and I said, "Davis, get out of the way."
I reached Calloway and grabbed him. He pulled himself together. We began running and managed to run out past the werewolf.
Dream of: 13 June 1985 "Metamorphosis"
Another person was riding with me in a car which I was driving in the country. We rode past a field which contained what at first appeared to be a large haystack. However, the more I looked at the haystack, the more it appeared to be a large animal. It was dark brown and appeared to be a mastodon.
Another car pulled up and two men stepped out. As they walked toward the animal, I feared they were going to injure it. I stopped the car, got out and began walking toward the animal.
The brown dirt of the field had been recently plowed. I stepped around some puddles of water. When I finally drew closer, I realized the object was simply a man, albeit a very large man, sitting on a tractor. I thought that he had actually been the animal and that he had changed back into a man.
The man suddenly jumped from the tractor and ran into a nearby barn. The other two men ran after him and I thought they were going to try to hurt him. I also ran toward the barn and reached it before the other two pursuers. Once I was inside the barn, I saw the man standing in front of me. When the other two men then entered the barn, I told them not to hurt the man.
I asked the man if he could change into things. When he indicated he could, I asked him if he would change into a cow. At first he didn't want to do so, but finally he agreed to do it. He stooped over onto his hands and knees. I thought the transformation would happen instantly before our eyes, similar to the one I had seen in the movie An American Werewolf in London when a man transformed into a werewolf. Instead, this transformation took about two hours.
I thought about how sometimes these types of metamorphoses do not actually occur as in the movies and how they actually take much more time than a person would anticipate. The two hours passed as if I weren't even there. When I finally looked up, I knew the man had changed into a large, white, beautiful cow.
