To see a budgie in your dream suggests that you lack initiative and new ideas. It’s possible that you’re a bit immature for your age. You need to be more spontaneous in your actions, and more creative and independent in your thinking.
Logical, male Legs-Support and movement. Light-Hope, protection, safety, enlightenment, illumination Lines-Broken lines represent feminine aspect. Solid lines, the masculine aspect. Attachments, as in lines of force.
The side where the heart is, the emotional area of the dreamer, and also the feminine aspect. It rarely has political meaning. Sometimes, it is injustice. According to Freud, it is perversity. See Right.
Vision: Left is a symbol of the feminine. Making a left turn means that the women in your life will “show the way.” It also means that you will gain greater insight.
Depth Psychology: Left: be cautious because it is the dark and mysterious side.
The “road to the left” is always dangerous, because left stands for the unconscious, destructive, and irrational within us. Dreaming of being paralyzed on the left side says you are operating too much from intellect and reason and that you should try to strengthen your emotional, intuitive side. See
The left side suggests the less dominant, more passive side. Often it is taken to represent all that is dark and sinister and those parts of our personality that we try to suppress. It is, however, more to do with instinctive behaviour, what feels good inside, and with personal behaviour without attention to moral codes.
The left side is supportive in expression, and receptive by nature, so anything appearing in dreams on the left side can be accepted as a symbol of support. Any pain experienced on the left side is interpreted in terms of sensitivity.
The left expresses the more feminine attributes and often the past. Any conflict between right and left indicates the differences between logic and intuition. Indecision over left or right suggests an inability to decide whether to rely on drive or instinct. Feelings of being left behind suggest a sense of inadequacy, of disintegration and of having to leave the past behind.
If you have a dream that strongly features the left side of something, or taking a left turn or direction, it means you will achieve all your goals if you persevere, even though you will encounter minor obstacles on the way.
If you are a right-handed person but you dream of being left-handed, you may face an awkward personal situation or a dangerous rival.
If you actually are left-handed, the dream is a good omen of better luck ahead. Dreams that strongly feature your left hand (using it or looking at it) predict frustrations and minor difficulties.
Example: ‘In my dream I woke up and had the feeling that a lot of time had passed. I felt I had lost all this time.
A group of friends I was with had gone ahead, left me behind, and I wondered if I would ever catch up’ (Patience C). Oneself left behind: feelings of rejection or inadequacy; sense of waking up to what you have not done or experienced in life, as Patience does in her dream. Leaving something, someone behind: leaving the past behind, breakup of relationship. Idioms: fall behind; put it all behind me. See also bag.
if we are right handed, the left represents the less dominant or expressed side of oneself, or the parts of our nature we try to hide or suppress.
If we write or knock in a nail using our right hand, we will hold the paper or nail with our left. So left leg or arm frequently has this sense of representing the supponive but less dominant functions in us. Our confidence may suppon our activity as a salesperson, so may be depicted as being on the left.
the dominant, confident, conscious, exterior or expressed side of self; lightness; correct social behaviour, moral.
Dreams can also use a play on what is right and left to illustrate a polarity or opposites. Our internal world of feelings, memories and values—the left; our external world of activity and environment—the right.
A secondary choice— left; the right’ choice at the time—right. Pans of self unconscious or shadowy—left; our conscious known self—right.
The immoral, selfish, wrong action—left; the moral, right action—right.
Example: ‘On my right are three monks, on my left sits a beautiful, shapely blonde. I am in the centre and I see a road, which leads to the right and a beautiful sunlit valley in the distance’ (from Dreams Your Magic Mirror by Elsie Sechrist). Here right and left represent not only choice between sexual pleasure and religious discipline, but also the polar opposites of spiritual and material. Although in the dream there is a movement to the right, to find equilibrium we often have to take a way between the opposites.
Idioms: two left feet; keep on the right side of somebody; in one’s right mind, in the right; mister right; set somebody right; right hand man; right in the head, stan on the right foot; give one’s right arm.
