DREAMER: I was in a supermarket. The open top coolers had conveyor belts that were moving waxed cardboard barrels of frozen soup.. They were being sold at a heavily marked down price so poorer people could afford it but that markdown triggered an economic collapse. I watched the people in the supermarket freak out as they ran around buying last minute stuff they think they’ll need. It was like Y2K. And for some reason I was there with Lisa Vanderpump.
Lisa and I leave the market and go to her manor house, where all kids from the show were hanging out in swimsuits like they were about to go to the beach or pool. For some reason, the whole house is rigged with horrible traps. One by one, all these people are slaughtered. There was a trap in the kitchen, and, in the sitting room, there was one just like it on the mantle piece: three razor trip wires, separately triggered and in long, medium, and tiny lengths that whip out and slice into flesh and bone. This happened in the kitchen first. Having witnessed it, we see it happen again in the living room, but Lisa, after the second wire is triggered, starts to move towards the body, and I throw my arm out to stop her, because the last wire hasn’t been triggered. I jump on the floor hard to trigger it so it’s out and done. This was stupid of me: the last trigger was different than the kitchen setup and a tiny circular razor saw with a razor wire attached, like a sick version of ball in a cup, is thrown out into the room at an angle, cutting into Lisa’s leg. On the other side of the room, two girls lose their minds entirely and try to run, but they fall, sliding across the wooden floor into a shelf full of what looked like heavy, solid glass bowling balls, all smash down on one girl, obliterating her body. The other is blown with shards of glass. It’s gory, horrific chaos and I have no idea why it was happening.
Lisa and I leave the house, the last two alive, and almost get in her van, but having a crazy worry I stop her again for fear of a car bomb. I mean after what we just witnessed, why not? At this point I wake up.
DREAMORPHEUS: I’m not familiar with Lisa Vanderpump, although a quick Google tells me she is very wealthy and very marketing savvy. It would be worthwhile to do a bit of a brainstorm about what association pop up for you. What do you love about her? Or hate about her? What do you admire about her? Does she remind you of anyone? As all dream characters are symbolic of aspects within your own psyche, expanding on your personal associations will show you what latent qualities are being stimulated by events in your waking life.
One thing I did notice about Lisa is that she is known as a philanthropist – the sort of person that might advocate for marked down barrels of frozen soup for the poor – but she is also a person of privilege, insulated from the effects of an economic crisis. You are doing your utmost to protect Lisa from danger – or, rather, there is a part of yourself (represented by this famous woman) that you seek to protect.
So what is the threat? You have described it as ‘for some reason’, ‘no idea why it was happening’, ‘gory, horrific chaos’. There is something happening in your waking life at this time that makes you feel like you have no control in a hostile situation. It may relate to your plans for the future (successful Lisa), your family (matriarch Lisa), or home (manor Lisa). In an even broader sense, it relates to your experience of feeling safe and supported, or lack thereof.
Perhaps it’s time to sacrifice the part/s of yourself that ‘lose their minds entirely and try to run’ from the inexplicable challenges that life throws at you? After all, you’ve done your best to save them. It’s interesting that the two girls die from deadly encounters with glass. Glass is usually considered to be fragile, but in your dream, it is deadly. Again, your personal associations around glass will be revealing, and I believe, guide you to forward.
Vehicles often relate to life direction. The Lisa Vanderpump you is keen to move on and the van seems ready go – but you are holding her (yourself) back because of past events. What would life be like if you assumed that it was safe to get in the van? Where would you go?
