Dream of: 02 December 2013 "The Godfather's Protection"
long-held beliefs sometimes need changed
I work for Don Vito Corleone (the character played by Marlon Brando in The Godfather). His sons and I have gone on a job, perhaps a bank robbery. I'm the driver of a big black sedan. When we all come out of the place where the job took place, we have to walk around an extra block due to the location which I chose to park the car. This causes problems because extra time is needed to reach the car. After we reach the car and depart, I'm blamed for the faulty parking of the car. I don't think this is my fault since I was only following directions when I parked the car. One of the sons (who seems like Sonny) especially places the blame on me and I almost have the feeling that he wants to get rid of me.
When we all meet again with the Godfather, we're standing in front of a hole which resembles a grave. During the course of the job, we had used some large tools such as shovels. Sonny now wants to dispose of the tools and he has placed them in the grave-like hole. The Godfather, however, doesn't agree that we should dispose of the tools. Sonny frowns as I retrieve the tools and begin putting them up, but the Godfather agrees with what I'm doing. I know that I have the protection of the Godfather and that no one will bother me because the Godfather likes me and protects me.
My ex-wife Carolina (around 20 years old) - who seems to be the daughter of the Godfather - drives me to another location to pick up more members of the Godfather's team. One of them seems to be Tessio. I know they won't bother me unless the Godfather has ordered it. I know they would be more than willing to kill me if the Godfather had ordered it, but I also know that I have the protection of the Godfather, so I feel secure.
They've left a bunch of blankets, sacks and other things lying on the ground for me to pick up. After Carolina stops the car, I step out of the car, start picking up things and putting them in the car, but there's more stuff than I anticipated. Finally I walk over to the car where Carolina is simply sitting and I ask her why she isn't helping me. She says she has simply been waiting for me to ask her. It turns out that she wants to help, but that she wasn't going to do so unless I asked her. This corresponds to some kind of belief which she has about not helping unless asked. This reminds me of one of the basic beliefs of the Godfather: be slow to acquire a belief, but stick to a belief once acquired. It seems as if this is what Carolina is doing - sticking to her belief.
I ask her to help me and she willingly steps from the car to do so.
