I often dream through my conflicts. These dreams sometimes follow a theme or appear in sequence. I work out my questions through my dreams. There are a total of five Ghost dreams. With each dream, I started to understand the conflict I was trying to avoid thinking about. These are the third and fourth entries in "The Dream Chronicles."
The Third Ghost dream
This dream was very quick and short. In the dream, I am at my parent's house. I'm sitting in the kitchen. Suddenly, the ghost pulls my chair across the kitchen, placing me in front of the kitchen window, facing my parents who are outside in the front yard.
The Fourth Ghost dream
Since I was a child, I have had the fear of looking in a mirror when the lights are off. I know there is nothing to fear, and sometimes I force myself to look in the mirror just to prove to myself that I am being silly.
In the dream, I have woken up at night. I am in my parents bathroom with the lights on. I am at the sink standing in front of the medicine cabinet which has a mirror on its door. The medicine cabinet door is open. When I close it, the image in the mirror is the ghost. I scream "Leave me alone!" and pound the sink in anger. At this point, I wake up from the dream. I could clearly remember the image in the mirror, and now fully awake, I begin to realise it was me as a young girl.
With this fourth dream, I understood that the ghost was me. I had been struggling with wanting to be home in California, yet needing to stay in Japan for work. I was emotionally being pulled in two.
