Hair, Hair Now, What Are You Thinking?

Hair and thinking both come from the head. So, on the basis of similarity of location dream-mind associatively uses the condition of a dream character’s hair to represent the condition of that dream character’s thinking. The dream character may even be the dreamer themselves. Here are some dreams where dream-mind is taking a look at the dreamer’s current thinking.

SELF EVALUATION DREAMS

Cindy had a good job in a medical lab but she wasn’t happy there. She was thinking about quitting but the job market was really bad. Cindy, whose real hair is brown and neck length, had this dream.

“It was the last hour of work [near quitting time]. My long black hair keeps getting in my face making it hard for me to see my work.

I go home and cut off my long black dream hair.

In the dream it is the next morning. As I arrive at work everyone is

surprised by my short hair, which is now blonde. All the co-workers

admire my short blonde hair.

A company nurse comes over and asks for a few strands of my blonde hair. She says they need a sample for a new culture they are going to grow. It is supposed to create a healing medication. I am excited. I can’t wait to see if the experimental culture will produce the healing medication.”

Cindy’s hair is the main feature of this dream. In the beginning Cindy’s long black hair represents lots of negative thinking. She has been finding fault with her job and co-workers. The dream suggests that she cut away the negativity, lighten up and be more cultured.

It wasn’t easy for Cindy to admit it was her own negative thinking that was interfering with her work happiness. She did agree to experiment with a more positive approach. Her change in attitude was noticed by her co-workers. Everything at work improved.

Edgar Cayce noted it too in this dream brought to him by a male stockbroker on November 24, 1925.

“In combing my hair, found in one place my hair was knotted and kinked.”

Cayce’s comment: “This is the emblematical condition of kinks in the correct reasoning in self, as regards some specific condition in which the entity forms too quick a conclusion…Consider again and act well.” Cayce reading 137:41

Husband Bill and wife Joan had argued until 2 a.m. They went to bed angry. Joan’s dream:

“Long black hair is growing from my armpits. I feel skuzzy and don’t want Bill to see this ugly hair.”

Her negative thinking was “the pits,” a slang expression for something bad. And, yes, dream-mind often uses picture images of associated word meanings.

Bonnie was getting heavily involved with an occult psychic group. Her thinking was getting “spaced out.” Bonnie’s dream:

“I am levitating, floating in the air. I drift toward a door opening into wide-open space. Just before I slip through my husband grabs me by my hair and pulls me back. He stands me on the ground on my feet.”

Bonnie’s husband keeps her grounded in reality. Bonnie had another hair dream.

“I’m looking in a mirror [reflect/think about this]. I part my hair low on the right side and comb most of it over to the left. It looks ok but not great. Then I part it low on the left side and comb most of it over to the right. I’m still not satisfied.

I part it in the middle. I like it! I decide to leave it parted in the middle.”

Extremes of thinking are not attractive nor smart. As always the middle way, the balanced way is best.

There is much more to learn about dream-mind’s associative thinking process.
