Touching Spirit Bear

"Give me something to take away the monsters", Cole said. "Only you can do that" she answered. The monsters are metaphor for what? What is Rosie implying?

Cole dreamt of people he knew coming towards him. Each person helped him. Garvey was feeding him, the nurse was tending to his wounds and his father was giving him money. Then a lightening bolt hit and turned them into monsters. They all laughed at Cole calling him "a baby faced con." The monsters are a metaphor of Cole's own selfishness. He manipulates people to get what he wants: monsters personify his self-centeredness. Rosie means that Cole must take responsibility for his own actions and emotions to vanquish the monsters.
