Whether we know or acknowledge it or not, we all have a little bit of Donald Trump inside each one of us. Perhaps that is a reason why our current president has riled up so many people on both sides of the political fence. They say that in each one of us is a universe populated by everyone and everything in the external world, where figures of energy propel us as much as they do in the outer world. How we relate to the exterior world is a reflection of how we relate to our internal world. The internal archetype of energy called Donald Trump seems to evoke a lot of energy both within and outside of us.
Dreams Are a Great Way to Meet Figures of Our Internal World
Have you met your internal Donald Trump? If you are aware of your dreams and remember them, you may have already met Trump in dreamtime. On Facebook someone posted a picture showing a dream image he had of Donald Trump. It was of a reticent and scared toddler wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap. This graphic image not only told us a lot about this man’s view of Trump but also something perhaps of Trump’s true nature.
Yesterday, I had a dream about Donald Trump. He was sitting on a chair in my backyard, not my real backyard, but the backyard of my house in dreamtime, giving me a clue this was in the backyard of my psyche and not the external world. He had a comforter on his lap which was decorated with pictures of himself. He was also wearing house slippers that looked uncomfortably like the ones I wear in waking life, again giving me clues to how this internal Trump shapes my outward behavior. He likes being comfy at home like I do with things reflecting me and my tastes, yet reminding me to make sure I don’t make too much of that need for comfort to the point of extravagance! A bit later in the dream, I ran into him sitting behind the counter of a post office, again not a real post office near me in waking life, but the post office of dreamtime and my psyche—a place where communications are moved to and fro internally. This dream might be telling me powerful energy resides from where I communicate. It may be also be telling me that I need to watch this archetype of energy to make sure it doesn’t do crazy things like the waking-life Donald Trump does!
At least in my dream, Donald Trump isn’t acting outrageously like grabbing Pootsie, my cat who doesn’t like strangers to get a hold of her, nor is he trying to manipulate me. He is just there, someone to be watched.
How does your internal Trump fare and how is his energy driving you? Your dreams will tell…
