Did Lady Gaga’s recurring dream save her father’s life? June 25th, 2010
Lady Gaga is known for her eccentric outfits and bizarre videos, so naturally her dreams do not disappoint either. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Lady Gaga revealed this rather interesting dream…
“I have this recurring dream sometimes where there’s a phantom in my home and he takes me into a room, and there’s a blond girl with ropes tied to all four of her limbs. And she’s got my shoes on from the Grammys. Go figure—pyscho. And the ropes are pulling her apart. I never see her get pulled apart, but I just watch her whimper, and then the phantom says to me, ‘If you want me to stop hurting her and if you want your family to be OK, you will cut your wrist.’ And I think that he has his own, like, crazy wrist-cutting device. And he has this honey in, like, Tupperware, and it looks like sweet-and-sour sauce with a lot of MSG from New York. Just bizarre. And he wants me to pour the honey into the wound, and then put cream over it and a gauze.”
Apparently she went to Deepak Chopra to get this dream analyzed. I don’t know if he is schooled in Dream Psychology or not but I sure would love to know his take on it. As you know, yours truly is schooled in Dream Psychology (Jungian to be exact) so here’s my take (Gaga, if you’re reading this… you’re welcome):
Phantom figures are common in dreams, often referred to to as “the shadow” in Dream Psychology, they represent either one’s dark side or what the dreamer perceives as a dark, negative force in their life. This could be Gaga’s own personal demon such as if she suffers from depression or a drinking problem. However, my suspicion is that this phantom represents her father’s heart condition. Notice how the phantom tells her in the dream, ‘If you want me to stop hurting her and if you want your family to be OK, you will cut your wrist.’ Obviously, the blond girl is Gaga, she’s wearing her Grammy shoes after all! It was Gaga’s success, symbolized by the Grammy’s, that enabled her to pay for her father’s heart transplant and receive the best care available. She opened herself up (cutting her wrist) and gave of herself (the blood) so that her family would be okay.
The honey poured onto the wound in the dream is most certainly the sweetness of Gaga’s action towards her father, which healed him as well as the open wound her family was suffering not knowing if the father would get a new heart and if he did, would it save him. I believe this recurring dream just may have come to Gaga in order to help her make sure she did all she could to save her dear old dad.
That’s what our dreams are there for, to help us make the best decisions for our lives. And sometimes, those decisions can even save a life.
What do you think Lady Gaga’s dream was telling her?
