My favorite type of dream to get is the star studded celebrity dream. I swear a celebrity makes a cameo in my dreams practically every night. The celebrity dream is also my favorite type of dream to interpret because, for the dreamer, the various celebrities that have made an appearance seem completely random. But as I always say, NOTHING IN A DREAM IS RANDOM. It’s fun to help the dreamer connect the dots between the celebrity and their own life. There is ALWAYS a connection and when it is found… so is the message.
Here’s an example of a celebrity dream I helped a friend on Facebook with just yesterday:
Parker: Why does John Lithgow keep turning up in my dreams? There could not be a celebrity I am more indifferent towards. No matter where I am, or what I’m doing, Lithgow shows up. In the dreams, he never plays a pivotal role. For example, I’ll be at a baseball game with some friends and one of them will say “Hey don’t you know that guy?” and point to John Lithgow a couple rows down. I’ll say “Yeah, Hey Lithgow! What are you doin’?” And he’ll say, “Oh just watchin’ the game” and I’ll say “OK. Talk to ya later then” And the dream resumes as normal.
Me: All right young man. Here is the 1 question you must always ask yourself in order to figure out what the celebrity in your dream really means… What movie or character or song first comes to mind when you think of this celebrity?
Parker: Strangely enough, the first Lithgow moment that always seems to come to mind is his cameo on 30 Rock, were he gets lost in the building and can’t find his way out. He’s playing himself.
Me: Well as you probably know, he symbolizes a part of you. Perhaps a part of you that is lost, indecisive, not sure which direction to take next. Is there any area of your life where you feel this way? He was trying to get out of the building in that episode, right? Is there a situation or obligation in your life you don’t know how to get out of, something that is causing you to feel stuck?
Parker: Well, I did just tell a bunch of cub scouts who were touring the station yesterday that the biggest mistake they could ever make would be pursuing a career in radio…. so I guess my job qualifies as a situation I need to get out of.
Me: That makes sense! Plus, in addition to his appearance on 30 Rock he starred in 3rd rock from the sun. So that’s 2 references to rock that he is connected to. And your station is a rock station!
Parker: One day when I’m a windsurfing instructor in Tahiti I’ll look back and thank Lauri Quinn Loewenberg and dream Lithgow for encouraging me to make positive life changing decisions.
Remember when I said “nothing in a dream is random?” Yep.
