Angry Protector

Dear Peregrin,

I have noticed that in every dream I've been having recently, there's is this one guy. He doesn't look to be too happy to be in my dreams. I can never see his face clearly. But he always seems mad to be in my dreams. It doesn't matter what I am doing or where I am going he's there. I get the sense that he is protecting me in some way. For example the last dream I had I was in a car accident. It was snowing, a friend from work was driving. I had just put my seat belt on as we began to flip. This guy's face flashed in my mind. Then as we were trap in this cabin he was there with me and refused to leave without me.


Good morning, Southfire.

With the nebulous face, your dream protector could represent any man in your life, or even several of them. The important factor is the role that he plays: that of protector. But it sounds as if he resents having to keep you safe, which is unusual. This is an earmark of an unhealthy dependent relationship, either with a father or with a husband/boyfriend, or some other authority figure.

Remember, though, that your dreams are not about how someone else feels; they're about how you feel. I think it's possible that you need help in some area of your life and resent this fact. If this is correct, then the faceless man in your dreams is actually a construct of your own mind, a way of expressing your resentment of your situation. You could even be avoiding asking for help that you need.

Pleasant dreams,
