My first instinct is it's a reminder of a brutal scar in a past life.

RE: Any psychic insight?
I heartily echo TheHangedWoman's sage letters.
As to what pointed me to twins, I don't see it or recall immediately, which means it was more channeled information than anything. I probably used the word 'maybe' to signify that it's yet indeterminate.
Definitely a daughter, though
RE: Lucid Dreaming.. have you done it? how to?
I have elected not to dream lucidly in this lifetime, but as an important piece of advice as you explore this realm, please always remember this:
Lucid dreaming is a gift from our Spirit family, and must always be treated with reverence and gratitude. A certain amount of wonderment is to be expected, too. But if you abuse this gift, you will be banned - probably for many lifetimes - from experiencing it again.
The intentions you set before and during your lucid dream states will carry you through, but the wonderful - and dangerous - thing about lucid dreaming is that you can (and will) make seemingly conscious choices during the dream state. "Choose wisely," as they say.
RE: Meaning of an erupting volcano in my dream?!?
Your dream suggests to me that the breakup was somewhat unexpected in its ferocity, and that you were deeply troubled by it, as well as the reasons behind it. I'm going to speculate that (1) your friends haven't been coming through for you as completely as you had hoped in this time of need, and (2) that the breakup originated from, how shall I put it, coital misconduct?
The camping on mountains you have climbed before represents an element of both exposure and comfort - you're confident you could handle this relationship and the challenges (it is a mountain, after all), because you'd 'been there before'. But things got a little tricky when folks started doing things that were not normal - putting six people on a rope - and these things alarmed you. However, before you could react, the world as you knew it fell apart (or exploded, really).
The lava suggests intense emotion. Emotion is usually depicted by water in dreams, but volcanoes can represent, among other things, explosive anger. This makes it unclear as to on whose part the misconduct was, although if I were to really go out on a limb, I'd wonder if it was you. There's no judgement tied to that, but seeing as in the dream the lava was heading towards you, and the mountain you climbed exploded in anger, the sense I get is that your ex was quite upset over something you did.
There also seems to be a lot of overt sexual symbolism - cougars (did you suspect your ex of being involved with older women?), pitching your tent next to a large 'rock' and 'bolders' (change a letter of the first word, and use a synonym for the second), and even the spewing volcano itself doubles as an eruption/release.
So you and your 'friend' (which could be your masculine self) head for this 'nice town' (a state of being for your mind) on the 'river' (the regular flow of emotions), and it seems to show that you will achieve some measure of reprieve or shelter from the onslaught of this destructive lava. Perhaps in the house, or perhaps even in the river itself. But not without some significant loss, since you have lost all your friend's gear, and half of your own.
I think this dream is a chance for you to really examine what led to the breakup, and ultimately what its effects on you are/were. The mountain you climbed (perhaps your ex was a conquest?)is no more, and in your mind, is only half of what it once was.
Hope that helps some.
RE: Interpretation of this dream- All help is needed
I'm going to side with TheHangedWoman on this one, as I've had similar dreams and visions, sometimes months in advance, and they all ultimately meant the same thing.
That you cried and met the family suggests to me you will feel a true grief for this relationship loss, and his friends will understand that grief. But a funeral is not often undone, and your subconscious appears to be telling you the path is already laid out before you.
That said, nothing is final until it happens, so if you would jump through obstacles and fight for him, now is the time.
RE: Help in Understanding Dream
There are a couple of elements to this, and although your description is light on details, I may be able to shed a little candlelight on it:
There are two scenarios that come to mind, and in the first, I would wonder aloud if you have recently met or partnered with a new man. In other words, is there someone new in your life? If so, this dream suggests that your subconscious/psychic self relizes worrisome signs that this person is reminscient of an oppresive male from your past, and you will feel trapped (or already do?) if you stay with this person.
The second scenario actually delves a little deeper, and without knowing your age or anything of your past, I'm going to have to be a bit nebulous about it - it seems to suggest that you've recently been triggered into remembering a time in your life where a strong male figure acted against you in some way - possibly violent (psychially, emotionally, or physically). Whatever recent situation did that, it's important to pay attention to it.
In either case, I would take a strong look at what's going on in your life presently. I realize the post is about a month old, and I hope you can still gain some insight from this. I find it VERY helpful to keep a dream journal by my bed, and annotate it with as much detail as possible, then relate it to events that happened in the previous 24-48 hours, since the most stressful of these are likely to be addressed by your subconscious - especially items that you are not dealing with consciously (perhaps because you are not acutely aware of them).
Ultimately, your dream angels appear to be sending you a clear message by repeating a dream from long ago. Clearly, they want you to pay attention to something.
Have you had similar dreams, or other dreams in which you felt trapped, since this post?
RE: Online dating and a dream
The aspect of your dream that you have shared seems to show that (1) you're viewing the situation as either black or white, and you're missing the subtle shades that color it; (2) you're concerned what the masculine figures in your life think of you, and are willing to defer to their decision (think King Arthur and the knights of the round table vs. the man at the "head" or "top" of the table); (3) that Maverick is 'who he says he is' - not meaning, in my opinion, that his mother actually had a stroke, but that he is, in fact, a maverick. From dictionary.com, a maverick is "a lone dissenter, as an intellectual, an artist, or a politician, who takes an independent stand apart from his or her associates". However, you may view it differently (such as Mel Gibson's character from the movie). Nevertheless, you see him as a 'loner'. (4) There's also an outside chance that your masculine self is speaking to you - and you see yourself as the Maverick. But that's just a possbility to chew on.
I won't presume to assist with what can only be your decision, but it's important to remember not to put too much pressure on yourself in the virtual world. Online dating is so popular, in part, because it allows us all a certain freedom and safety net we would not otherwise encounter in the physical world. That also, unfortunately, allows for a certain level of masking that we can't reproduce in the physical world.
The best serum for any illness is truth - and whether that truth be shared openly or known within, it's vital that you embrace and accept it. It will light the rest of the pathways for you.
RE: Help Please...Tree of Life Interpretation....New Member
I don't have all the answers. In fact, I really don't have too many of them at all. But a few cards that stand out:
Nine of Wands - show strength by admitting your limitations
King of Swords - defer to a wise elder, then act with integrity
Queen of Pentacles - recognize and rely on your intuition
High Priestess - go within, the answers lie in stillness
So it seems to indicate learning from others, then relying on the self. But that's only part of the equation. Hope it helps
RE: Bad dreams
I might suggest that you supply more information if you're seeking help. It's not clear what you're asking.
I might also suggest that if the situation is 'severe' or truly scary, you seek guidance from a counselor in your area (spiritual or otherwise) rather than posting to open forums. Forums have the potential to provide deeply misleading or dangerous information.
