The Policeman

Dream

I'm a police officer on patrol in a bushfire affected area. A woman arrives on the scene, driving a brand new, white Land Rover Discovery towing a horse float with 3 horses inside. She is a total stranger. She is desperate to find some unburnt pasture so she can let her horses out to graze. I agree to help her and get in the car with her. Sometimes she is driving and sometimes I am driving. We eventually find a field that has had some bushfire damage but there is enough grass available for her horses graze. While she attends to her horses I walk around the paddock, naked and masturbating myself. I am feeling very arrogant.

Dream notes and associations

I had this dream last December when we were trapped at Kianga, on the South Coast, by the bushfires. The bushfires were close to us but we were quite safe were we were. I have no idea who the woman is. When I was walking around naked and masturbating myself I had this feeling that I can do this.

My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening

Desperation and arrogance. After I awoke from the dream I felt very disturbed by my arrogance.

Hi Lindsay, dreams can often elicit memories and stir up uncomfortable emotions. The policeman’s arrogance sounds intense, however the feeling of ‘I can do this’ seems important. Let me know if you’d like to explore this dream character together. I appreciate you sharing this dream, know you can also edit your dream to private any time if you prefer it offline.

Hi Lindsay, it must be so difficult to keep a lid on all these emotions and it seems your dreams are playing a crucial role in healthily expressing them when they arise. It’s important to acknowledge and feel the emotions somatically to help release the pent up sensations. I’m wondering whether you could express these emotions creatively as well…through art or writing?
