5 thoughts on “Sexual Abuse: Justice Came in A Dream

    I want to offer additional reflections about your dream…all dreams speak to the larger world as well, the worlds of culture, religion, politics, national and international aspects of life, and to the larger “universe” of everything…in this dream, if I may say, does just that. This dream addresses the part of us (your dream speaks for all humanity) that is being “fondled”, being “played” without our FREE, powerful PERMISSION to say yes… fondled by the wounded male energies of our world, and the wounded female energies that have HAD to go along to survive.

    and to share more, this dream does say ENOUGH!! Enough to the part of us that HAD to go along in the past. Enough to the wounded male entitlement that tries to rule our waking world. This dream, as I experience it, is the rage of “forever” that is now being expressed in many parts of our culture. This dream represents the tip of the ice berg of “never again”. This dream represents the healing screams of us all, even wounded males and females. This dream invites our whole world to hold ourselves accountable, and to change ourselves. Thank you! for letting me “borrow” the healing truth of this dream.

    Congratulations on taking back your power! There was one final straw moment in which I finally confronted my narc with “Enough is enough”. Since then it has been very low contact. But after that moment I had had several very powerful dreams, much like you describe. Where I was unable to even speak to her before, now I could scream and say anything I wanted. Where I was paralyzed with fear and sadness before (unable to express myself), I could now swing a punch and bring my narc to the ground. It’s amazing how taking your power back can manifest itself in your dreams. And yes, since then I have had strange memories resurface, a few of them #metoo moments when I gave the offender the benefit of the doubt. Journaling is a great tool for processing through a lot of these scrambled memories and emotions. Blessings to you as you continue to work through it all. I imagine it will take the rest of our lives.

    Well, I must say I was on the edge of my seat hoping your dream you was going at least to toss a drink in his face or elbow him in the, well, you know…but I glad you screamed and SO glad you told Her off. What a healing dream for you!

    Sexual abuse is always about power rather than sex, about the allegedly strong taking power over the supposed weak. Thus, recovery is always about taking our power BACK, just like you did in your dream.

    Love those dreams!

    (I also love the movie The Holiday especially for how Iris finally gets over that perfectly played charming narcissist so well done by Rufus Sewell.)

    I’m so proud of you for speaking out about Narcissistic parent abuse!
    Bless you for shedding light on it and trying to help others. It’s a tragedy that your Father would do that to you, and that your Mother was aware of it, but would make you feel responsible. Your Father was a disgusting creep, regardless of any good qualities he might have had. Disgusting human being to try to cop “innocent” feels on his child.

    I’m so glad that you had that dream, and you are free!- at least in the aspect of what he did to you. That was You-coming thru your sleeping consciousness-to say enough is enough! I also have a Narcissistic Mother-of a different kind. I have been the scapegoat of my Mother, her smear campaigns and her flying monkeys-my siblings.

    It’s been agony, my whole life. I am finally learning about Narcissism and Narcissistic abuse- and it is helping tremendously. I finally understand what has happened to me. I still have many issues to work through, but it really helps a lot to understand the truth.

    Thank you so much for sharing. It helps very much to hear of other’s experiences. Bless You.
