ABSINTHE

To come under the influence of absinthe in dreams, denotes that you will lead a merry and foolish pace with innocent companions, and waste your inheritance in prodigal lavishness on the siren, selfish fancy.

For a young woman to dream that she drinks absinthe with her lover warns her to resist his persuasions to illicit consummation of their love.

If she dreams she is drunk, she will yield up her favors without strong persuasion.

(This dream typifies that you are likely to waste your energies in pleasure.) ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

ACTIVATION-SYNTHESIS MODEL OF DREAMING

The activation-synthesis model of dreaming was proposed in 1977 by Robert McCarley and J. Allan Hobson of Harvard Medical School. Examining the purely physiological correlates of dreaming, Hobson and McCarley believed they had put forward a hypothesis that refuted the notion that dreams are meaningful, especially as this notion was formulated by Sigmund Freud and promulgated in the tradition of dream interpretation he initiated.

During rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the stage of sleep most closely connected with dreaming, a portion of the brain called the pons (located in the primitive hindbrain) generates electrical signals that go to many different brain areas, including those associated with motor activities, sensory activities, and conscious thought. Hobson and McCarley hypothesized that one of the effects of this electrical activity is to send a series of essentially random images, feelings, and so forth to the higher mental centers of the forebrain. This is the “activation” stage of the theory.

In normal waking consciousness, the fore- brain sorts through various kinds of internal and external sensory input to create a meaningful experience of the world. Faced with a barrage of disconnected inputs during REM sleep, the higher mental centers attempt to impose order on the incoming messages, creating whatever narrative structure dreams have. This is the “synthesis” stage of the theory. Many dreams are just masses of incoherent images representing incoming groups of signals that the brain was simply not able to synthesize.

For anyone who has been exasperated by the convolutions of Freudian or other schools of dream interpretation, the activation-synthesis theory has a certain iconoclastic appeal because it dismisses dreams as just so much nonsense. How- ever, because almost everyone has had at least a few truly insightful dreams, the theory is ultimately unsatisfying. Also, on a purely physiological level, it is an incomplete theory because it does not offer an explanation for the dreams that occur during non-REM sleep.... Dreampedia

ACTIVE / PASSIVE

Example: I was in a house that I lived in many years ago. How I got there I do not know, but I saw myself sitting in an ordinary chair just behind the closed front street door. It was very quiet, and I was afraid, but I did not make any effon to move’ (Mrs J).

When we are an inactive observer in our dream, are all the time on the receiving end of dream action, or as in the exam­ple make no effon to move from discomfort, we are in a passive role.

If this occurs frequently in our dreams, we are probably passive in our waking life. This can gradually be changed by such techniques as active imagination.

It is our own emotions, fears and sexuality we are meeting in our dreams, so it is wise to take charge of our being rather than be a victim.

The following dream illustrates an active dreamer: ‘As I walked toward a house a number of demons or devils came at me menacingly, trying to stop me getting near the house. Although they made all the ghostly noises, I wasn’t at all afraid of them. I felt they were a damned nuisance, and to show them I meant business I grabbed one and with my right hand I gripped its flesh and squeezed. It started to squeak in pain and I squeezed harder’ (Clive J). ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

ADVERSITY

To dream that you are in the clutches of adversity, denotes that you will have failures and continued bad prospects.

To see others in adversity, portends gloomy surroundings, and the illness of some one will produce grave fears of the successful working of plans.

The old dream books give this as a sign of coming prosperity. This definition is untrue. There are two forces at work in man, one from within and the other from without. They are from two distinct spheres; the animal mind influenced by the personal world of carnal appetites, and the spiritual mind from the realm of universal Brotherhood, present antagonistic motives on the dream consciousness.

If these two forces were in harmony, the spirit or mental picture from the dream mind would find a literal fulfilment in the life of the dreamer.

The pleasurable sensations of the body cause the spirit anguish.

The selfish enrichment of the body impoverishes the spirit influence upon the Soul.

The trials of adversity often cause the spirit to rejoice and the flesh to weep.

If the cry of the grieved spirit is left on the dream mind it may indicate to the dreamer worldly advancement, but it is hardly the theory of the occult forces, which have contributed to the contents of this book. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

AGGRESSIVENESS

(1) If you behave aggressively in a dream, then either your unconscious is telling you that there is some aggression in you that you have not acknowledged fully or that you need or ought to be in some sense aggressive: more self-assertive, more in conscious control of your life and circumstances, less passive or subservient, less submissive or fatalistic. Do you tend to be unnecessarily or inappropriately aggressive towards people, for example, when the shop assistant ignores you or you find that you have been sold a faulty article? If so, perhaps there is a history of feeling rejected or undervalued. Are you - in your dream - aggressive towards your wife / husband / partner / parent / brother / sister? If so, the dream may be expressing unconscious resentment or jealousy towards that person. Unconscious hostile wishes towards someone closely related are very common.

(2) If you are the victim of the aggressiveness in the dream, the message may be that you are in a situation - at home or at work - that is threatening to destroy or diminish you. In that case, you must get yourself physically out of that situation.

Bear in mind, however, the possibility that everything in your dreams represents some part of you. Therefore, look for some part of you that is aggressively disposed towards the rest of you, or towards some other part of you. Perhaps, for instance, there is some guilt-feeling which causes (another part of) you to be angry, either against yourself or against other people. (Anger and guilt often go together, as the two sides of the same coin; anger frequently stems from guilt, and guilt from anger.)

(3) If the aggressor in the dream is not yourself, the meaning of the dream may be that there is some part of your psyche - some instinctive urge, perhaps - that has been neglected or repressed and is now getting rebellious. Sympathetic control of instincts is good; keeping them in chains is bad, and can only lead to trouble. Identify and get acquainted with the rebellious element in yourself, and engage in honest and receptive dialogue with it. See also Fear.

Freud spoke of an ‘aggressive drive’ which showed itself everywhere, in sex as well as in war. For Jung’s contemporary, Alfred Adler, this aggressive power-drive was the most fundamental force in the psyche. Aggressiveness, however, may be sublimated; it may be tamed and directed into creative channels. I don’t know to what extent entrepreneurial enterprise would qualify as creative, but it is certainly an expression of aggressiveness a few degrees less savage than the crudest

AİRrORT

forms of physical aggression. Less ambiguous examples of sublimated aggressiveness arc problem-solving of all kinds, scientific research, artistic work and making love. (Making love is almost invariably to some extent forceful, even when it is also tender or indeed reverential. On the other hand, brutal love-making is a contradiction in terms, and usually results from emotional or sexual repression.)... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

She has specially moved there because of our love. I realise with horror I had forgotten and may have lost her’ (David H).

AMNESIA

1- To suffer from amnesia in a dream indicates our attempts to blot out the disliked. It also indicates a fear of change. Losing one’s memory in real life can be traumatic, but in dreams it can be even more of a problem since we do not know how much we actually should remember. VVe do not know- how much is viable, and how- much is presented for the purposes of that dream onlv.

2- Psychologically we fear losing access to knowledge, of knowing how to behave. Often we wake up feeling we have dreamt, but cannot remember the dream. This can be because it is too painful to deal with the trauma that lies behind the images created. We are consciously able to forget until such times as we are courageous enough to deal with those images.

3- Amnesia in dreams can suggest death, either past or present. This may not be a physical death, but a time of great change in the dreamer’s life.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

ANIMAL SITUATIONS

Example: ‘I am given an animal to look after (usually somebody’s pet) while they are away on holiday. I then completely forget the animal, go away and when I return the animal is either dead or very dried up or has been got at by another animal and is in the throes of dying. When I wake from the dream I feel most dreadful and it is only when I am fully awake and realise it is not true do I feel better’ (Lynda E). Neglect , mutilation or killing our ‘animal’ is a common theme. Lynda’s feelings show how she senses what she is doing to her inner nature, but she dismisses this by convincing herself such feelings are not ‘true’. We have a responsibility to care for our animal drives, to see our sexual, nutritional and body needs are met. Eating the animal: inte­grating our natural wisdom and energy. Hiding from or trapped by^an animal: see wolf in this entry. Animal with its young: parental feelings; one’s basic childhood needs. Baby animal: oneself when young; baby feelings; desire for babies; see example in eating. Talking, shining , holy or wise ani­mals: important intuitive information; a meeting with the gathered wisdom we have unconsciously. This is one of the sources of religious inspiration, and many older cultures rep­resent their origin of great learning or holiness as animals or animal headed beings.

ASCENSION

Rising to a place in dreams indicates that you are capable of overcoming any obstacle that life puts in your path. This type of image reveals ascension to a superior plane. Such a situation permits you to improve your personal relationships. (See ELEVATOR, HILL, and JUMPING)

This dream foretells economic losses.

Ash Once the fire is out, ashes remain. Perhaps, you feel that all the good deeds in your lives have already taken place and there is nothing left. On the other hand, you can be too anchored to the past or overthinking something that is already over. Ashes can represent failure of a relationship or a business. Also, they are often identified with death and dissolution of bodies. Everything that comes into contact with the fire of life is submitted to ashes. For the Hindu tradition, ashes are a symbol of indestructibility. In a dream, they portray the irreducible part of yourself.

Ashes predict disadvantages: bad harvests, unsuccessful businesses, and children who cause problems to their parents. According to gypsies, however, this dream means that you will finally stop lamenting opportunities lost a while ago. In many tribal societies ashes are also a symbol of fertility and good fortune. In England and the United States, in fact, it is believed they protect against evil spirits.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

BASILISK

When you dream of woman that she is delivered of a basilisk instead of a child, it is a bad hieroglyphic, and betokens no good to the dreamer; and he ought heartily to recommend himself to the Divine Being, that he would preserve him, and avert those misfortunes that threaten him. And if it be a woman that has such a dream, many authors—Anselmus Julianus in particular, who is an author to whom great regard ought to be had—affirm that she shall have very good success and comfort, shall be rich and generally beloved, and shall prosper in all her undertakings....

BROTHER / SISTER

(1) If your brother or sister appears in a dream you have to decide whether the dream is saying something about your actual brother or sister and your relationship with him or her, or whether vour brother or sister stands in the dream symbolically for something else - some part of yourself.

If the former is the case, it may be obvious to you: recent encounters with your brother or sister, or some piece of news about him or her may be recognized as prompting the dream. Always be on the look-out, though, for those dreams where a brother or sister plavs a symbolic role. The dream source may choose its materials - its images - from your recent external experiences, but what those dream images represent is nearly always some part of yourself. So please read on.

(2) In early childhood a brother or sister is a natural object of jealousy and hatred. In the eyes of a small child the mother may seem to be favouring his or her sibling. When a second child is bom, the firstborn is especially likely to develop hostile feelings towards the new’ rival for mother’s attention and affection. Sometimes w’e carrv such jealous grievances (at an unconscious level) into adult life, w’here they continue to affect our behaviour and attitudes.

It is then imperative that w’e sort them out, face up to them, acknowledge them for w’hat they are, and so liberate ourselves from their damaging influence (see (3) below, second paragraph, on projections).

(3) An elder brother or sister (brother for a male dreamer, sister for a female dreamer) may represent your ‘other self (‘alter ego’), that side of your personality that has so far been neglected and undeveloped. Jung called it ‘the Shadow’’. We start adult life w’ith a self-image that is usually some sort of compromise between what w’e w’ant to be or do and w’hat parents or society at large seems to require of us.

If this self-image corresponds to our actual abilities, all may be well for a while; but a time mav come w hen wre need to give attention to other facets of our (potential) self. These other facets - our Shadow- - will show- themselves to us in dreams; and one form they take in dreams is that of an elder brother or sister.

People often project their shadow- on to a sibling of the same sex as themselves; and if it is not projected, it may express itself in all kinds of aw kward and embarrassing ways - astonishing rudeness, for example, or other antisocial behaviour. The contrast between your conscious ego and your alter ego mav be as startling as that between Jekvll and Hyde. Don’t be alarmed, though: remember alw-ays that your unconscious is vour ally - vour best friend - and even the most frightening or appalling things that reveal themselves in dreams as parts of vour unconscious are frightening or appalling, first, because of their unfamiliaritv and / or secondly, because, having been neglected and locked away in the dark, they tend to behave like a neglected child and mav become mutinous (on this phenomenon, see Demon). Pay proper attention and proper respect to them, and their threatening features will disappear; they will prove themselves valuable supplements to vour personal equipment for coping with life and achieving full satisfaction and wholeness. Introduce them into your consciousness, identify them and their needs, and give them a controlled and appropriate part to play in your waking life.

Incidentally, one test you can apply to check whether you have a neglected shadow-self is to ask yourself if there is some characteristic that you particularly dislike in other people (particularly your partner): a domineering tendency’, perhaps, or an over-liberal attitude, or whatever.

If there is (and of course you need a lot of honesty’ to admit this), then that characteristic is likely to belong to your shadow-self. We tend to project on to other people the dark, ‘nasty5 things that live in our own unconscious.

If something is going wrong in our life, we tend to put the blame on to other people, the government, or our parents; we look for some scapegoat to carry the blame. The blame, how ever, is ours, because we have not put our own house in order: we have not paid due attention to the demands of our unconscious and have not allowed our ‘other self proper scope for expression in our life.

(4) When a female dreams of a brother, or a male dreams of a sister, the brother / sister may represent w’hat Jung called the ‘soul-image’, w’hich is the masculine side of a woman’s personality (her animus) or the feminine side of a man’s personality (his anima). There would seem to be very basic differences between man and woman arising out of different biological functions (as well as less basic differences that owe their existence to social conditioning). There are w’hat have traditionally been called feminine qualities and capacities (such as gentleness, a caring disposition, creativeness, cooperativencss and relatedness, intuition) and, similarly, what have been called masculine qualities (such as aggressiveness and competitiveness, rationality’, and a tendency to analyse and look for differences). However, it is widclv accepted nowadays among psychotherapists that the male psyche also contains feminine qualities and the female psyche also contains masculine qualities, albeit often dormant and neglected, or repressed.

If you arc a man, do you admire the ‘masculine’ tv pc of woman? If vou do, vou may be in need of redressing the balance in vour psyche: vour feminine side

has possibly swamped your masculinity, and you now need to promote the latter. In your case, the anima will be rather masculine. This is just one instance of a general rule: the animus / anima will have the opposite characteristics to the conscious self-image.

Either male or female dreamers may find themselves in a dream in an heroic relationship to an anima / animus figure. A man may, in a dream, rescue a damsel in distress; a woman may waken a dead prince with a kiss. These should be seen as invitations to incorporate your anima / animus into vour conscious functioning, to rescue it from oblivion and neglect: to make Cinderella or the Frog-Prince your partner in life. Personal wholeness cannot be achieved without this. See also Cinderella, Frog, section (3), Marriage.

(5) A sister in a man’s dream or a brother in a woman’s dream may take the dreamer into some frightening abyss, to the bottom of the sea, or into a dark forest. This may represent the man’s anima or the woman’s animus leading the ego into the unconscious, to discover, for example, the deep emotional causes of a psychosomatic illness; the repressed rage that lies at the bottom of a chronic boredom; or the fount of energy or wisdom that can furnish a more fully satisfying existence. Literary and mythological representations of this can be found in the examples of Beatrice, who led Dante safely into hell and out again, and Ariadne, whose thread enabled Theseus to find his way out of the Cretan labyrinth after slaying the Minotaur. Both hell and labyrinths are symbols of the unconscious. See also Labyrinth, Monster, Underworld.

(6) Sometimes the anima / animus figure in a dream may appear in some way hostile or threatening. For example, in a man’s dream the anima may take the form of an enchantress, a femme fatale, seducing men into a lake or ocean. The watery depths may be seen as symbolizing the depths of the unconscious. The meaning of such a dream may be that the dreamer needs to explore his other - unconscious - self, despite (or, more accurately, because of) its frightening and threatening aspect. Water, however, is a symbol of the feminine, too. The meaning of the dream, therefore, might be that die dreamer is too heavily fixated on his mother and needs to liberate himself by asserting his masculinity and independence; in extreme cases the man might be in danger of being “possessed’ or ‘swallowed up’ by the feminine within his psyche. Such a dream may be, however, not a warning, but an invitation: the unconscious may be urging the man to get on better terms - equal terms - with the feminine side of his psyche. Give your anima / animus equality, and it will cease from its mutinous attempts to take over the whole of your psyche.

In the case of a woman, a dream may contain a male seducer: some Pied Piper animus figure. Again, the dreamer will have to decide whether such a dream is a warning or an invitation: a warning against being carried away by her masculinity (perhaps she has not resolved her early father fixation), or an invitation to discover and utilize her neglected masculinity. Commonsense and, above all, honesty should guide her to the correct understanding of the dream; and in any case, bear in mind what was said above about giving equality to the anima / animus.

(7) The unconscious compensates the conscious mind. It contains those qualities and capacities which the conscious mind lacks. In this sense it is the opposite of the conscious mind; hence its otherness, its alien appearance.

It follows, therefore, that the image that represents anima or animus in a dream may be the opposite of the psychological type to which the dreamer belongs. For example, if you are a woman of the intellectual type (i.e. if thinking is your strong point at the conscious level), your animus may be represented in dreams as a sentimental type (a romantic Don Juan, for instance).

If you are a sentimental woman (moved at the conscious level mainly by feelings - including moral feelings), your animus may show itself as a bearded professor or other intellectual figure.

If you are an intuitive woman (an artist, for instance), your animus mav take a muscular he-man form in dreams (the sensational type, functioning most strongly at the sensory level).

(8) If brother and sister appear together in a dream, this may symbolize either the tension of opposites, or the union of opposites. The opposites are the conscious and the unconscious contents of the psyche. Their union and interfusion are the means by which the self- the true self that is already within you but waits to be unfolded - is realized.

The appearance of this symbol will usually be an auspicious sign, meaning that, despite all appearances to the contrary, there is within you a latent and attainable order and harmony. But of course you - the conscious ego - must make that latent order real by paying loving attention to the needs of your unconscious opposite (like the prince who wakes the sleeping beauty with an embrace)....

BROTHER / SISTER

In dreams, brothers tend to depict an aspect of yourself rather than the brother himself. They can also represent the characteristics you like or dislike about your own siblings and the dream may be telling you something about those particular characteristics in yourself. An older brother can represent experience and authority, whilst younger brothers can suggest vulnerability and, in some instances, immaturity.

If a woman dreams of a younger brother, it can express either her own or her brother’s rivalry or vulnerability, but if she dreams of an older brother, it might signify her extrovert self.

The sister in dreams usually represents the feeling, expressive side of your personality and you can make contact with that side of yourself by understanding your sister’s personality.

If a man dreams of older sisters, it can represent anxiety but also caring.

If the sister is younger, however, she can symbolize the vulnerable side of the male dreamer.

If a woman dreams of younger sisters, it can suggest rivalry, but if she dreams of older sisters, she may be concerned about her own practicality.... The Element Encyclopedia

BUSINESS AND DREAMING

Although the world of business and the world of dreams are often considered to be incompat­ible, this is not so. Once one realises that dreams may be the ‘printout’ of the most shrewd and capable computer we have access to, we can see them as a source of useful information.

If one is in business, there is information in one’s own mem­ory, along with considered projects, questions about problem areas, which have never been put on an electronic computer. And there is no computer program outside our own mind which can handle and manipulate all the variables, the inte­grating of different information sources—written words, feel­ing hunches, spoken information, personal observation and experience—and then sift, explore different combinations, and reach into pure creativity by leaping into the new.

Dreams should not be seen as oracles, but if we take their information into account along with our other sources, we find them a real addition to our business equipment. See cre­ativity and problem solving in dreams. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Devoted to gambling, casinos in dreams suggest making a game of life, in which the chances you take can have a very direct connection with real events.

If you are normally a passive person, the dream may be a sign that you should take a chance in your life.

If you already live on the edge, the dream may suggest that you should make more careful decisions instead of relying on chance. What you are doing in your dream casino can indicate how you are playing the game of life. Are you playing recklessly and with no thought of the morrow, are you playing by the rules or are you seeking to exploit loopholes in the rules?

CATHARSIS

Your dreams may often be cathartic vehicles to help you resolve difficult and painful emotions. The basic idea of catharsis is to purge or let off steam. It is thought that if a person is angry, letting off steam can help them feel better and reduce the likelihood of aggression.

Many films, plays and books contain cathartic scenes in which various characters express intense feelings of rage, anger, guilt or hostility and, by so doing, resolve the key issues in their lives. Catharsis also occurs in dreams; your unconscious conjures up various scenarios in which negative emotions are expressed or acted out. It is urging you to face up to difficult feelings and take action to resolve them in your real life.... The Element Encyclopedia

CHASE / CHASED / CHASING

(1) If you are being chased in a dream, what is chasing you probably symbolizes something you are afraid of, either in your external life or - more commonly - in your inner self, your unconscious. For example, a woman who dreams of being chased by men is probably afraid of sex. (Freud would add that her dreams present, in disguise, an unconscious, repressed desire for sex.)

(2) If you are doing the chasing, the ‘you’ in your dream is probably your conscious ego and the thing you are chasing is almost certainly some part of yourself that frightens you. Chasing it away means disowning it, banishing it from your conscious life. It might be much better to try to integrate it into your conscious life. At the very least, get to know it and understand it.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

CHILDHOOD REVISITED

It is during childhood that we learn many of the fundamental rules and responsibilities of life. It is also the time when we develop our personalities and become increasingly socialized. It makes sense, therefore, that dreams of revisiting a place or a scenario from your own childhood often focus on lessons that you learned, or failed to learn, and these lessons may be relevant to your current situation.

If you dreamed of a particularly happy childhood memory—for example, you are seven years old and your dad brings home your first bike, or you are five years old sitting happily on your mum’s lap sucking your thumb—the dream could either be pointing to your nostalgia for a time when life was full of fun, or it could be more concerned with your present feelings of insecurity. The dream is reminding you of a time when life was simple, and in so doing, it compensates you for your current feelings of confusion.

If you are facing a difficult decision, it could also have been highlighting your need to put yourself forward and take a risk by focusing on your new bike—something you wanted but also feared, as you weren’t wholly confident riding it yet.

Consider, too, whether your unconscious has cast archetypal figures in the role of your mother and father. Relation-figures in dreams of childhood can often represent archetypes rather than actual family members. Alternatively, if your unhappy childhood returns to haunt you in dreams (which may reoccur), your unconscious may be forcing you to relive those miserable times in an attempt to make you confront the source of your distress and deal with it, now that you have an adult understanding of the situation. Your unconscious is trying to help you come to terms with what happened to you, so you can put it behind you.... The Element Encyclopedia

CONFUSION

Dreams in which body parts of family members are confused—for example your sister’s head on your father’s body—suggest that you may be having problems deciding which family member is the most important for you. Dreams in which a family member doesn’t arrive when expected or appears unexpectedly suggest that the relationship between you and that family member needs to be better understood so that trust can develop. Dreams in which family members are injured, distorted or suffering in some way may reflect your fear or anxiety for that person. Dreams of an incestuous relationship with a family member suggest that the dreamer has become over involved with that person; the dream has appeared to warn that if this over involvement continues, the consequences will be damaging to your development.

The personality of family members in your dreams may also be transformed. For example, parents who have been difficult in waking life may appear tolerant and loving in your dream. This may be an attempt by your dreaming mind to counter the negative consequences of their cold attitude towards you when you were a child. A negative dream of a partner when all seems well in waking life may be a warning that there is an underlying problem in your relationship with them. Examine the context of your partner’s misbehavior in the dream as your unconscious may have noticed a flaw in your relationship that you are unable or unwilling to recognize in waking life.

Remember, however, that the dream may relate to another negative area of your life; your partner may represent someone or something else important to you in your dream. See also Divorce dreams entry in RELATIONSHIPS.... The Element Encyclopedia

CONSIDER COMMON DREAM SYMBOLISM FIRST

If there’s any such thing as a shortcut to finding dream meaning, this is it. The majority of dreams convey meaning using one of just a few forms of symbolism. So, chances are that your dream symbol represents something in your life or mind in one of the following ways, which you’ll begin to recognize as you interpret more dreams. When searching for a symbol’s meaning, always consider these most common forms of symbolism first.

Literal Translation
If the dream symbol (person, event, object, action, setting, etc.) exists in your real life, it might represent that actual element of your waking life. For example, your mother who was hugging you might represent a particular time she hugged you, or her affection toward you in general. Consider whether the dream symbol might represent the same thing in your current life, past, or imagined future, and whether your feelings about the dream symbol remind you of feelings you felt about something in your real life (perhaps recently).

Emotions
The emotions you feel regarding the dream symbol are probably the same as the emotions you feel about whatever the symbol represents in your real life. For example, if you feel overwhelmed by a swarm of insects in a dream, the swarm might represent your to-do list that feels overwhelming in real life. (See more about emotions in the Emotions symbol category.)

Abundance or Lack
A dream symbol can represent something that you feel you have too much of, do too much of, or want less of in your real life. Alternatively, your dream symbol could represent something that you feel you lack, do too little of, or want more of. If your dream contained a pleasant experience (such as relaxing on a beach), your subconscious mind could be pointing to your desire for more relaxation in your life. If your dream was unpleasant (such as someone judging you), your subconscious mind may have been focused on trying to avoid that kind of experience in real life.

Personal Symbolism
A dream symbol may convey meaning that you personally associate with it based on your experiences, feelings, and other influences (as described in Subconscious Influences on Dream Symbolism). For example, one person might associate a baby with vulnerability and someone else might associate it with growth.

A particular dream symbol may bring more than one meaning to mind for you. For example, money might bring to mind how fun it is to spend, but you might also think of money as power or a solution to financial problems. If the first meaning that comes to mind doesn’t seem to relate to anything in your real life and doesn’t resonate intuitively, explore additional meanings (TOOL: Caveman Explanation is helpful for this).

Importance
The symbols you tend to notice in a dream are often the most important ones. So a good place to start when exploring your dream is with the symbols that stood out. Symbols may stand out because they’re so huge you can’t miss them (like a boulder falling on your house) or they could be small details that happen to stand out in your mind (like the chipped rim of a teacup). Sometimes an important symbol is highlighted in the dream with a bright color, illuminated with light, pointed to with an arrow, or emphasized in some other way.

Urgency
If there’s a sense of urgency involved in the dream, the dream might represent an urgent matter that you feel needs attention in your real life (or one that you fear or imagine needing attention). For example, a dream about trying to put out a fire at work could point to a real-life problem that arose suddenly at work that you feel requires quick action to avoid catastrophe.

Subject Context
A dream might be about you or it could represent your perception of a friend or a recent situation—even in the media, on TV, or in a movie. For example, in a dream about a girl wearing a cheerful flowered dress, the girl could represent a happier version of yourself or your desire to feel more cheerful. Alternatively, she might represent a friend who was in a happy mood when you saw her yesterday, an upbeat song you just heard, or an optimistic character you saw in a TV show last night.

Time Context
A dream symbol could represent something in your past, present, or imagined future. Look for elements that bring to mind a particular time frame, either in the characteristics of the symbol itself or in the other things associated with it in the dream (people, activities, clothes, places, music, books, etc.). Time-related cues could include things like hair or clothing styles, a person appearing younger or older than their current age in real life, technologies of a different era, or personal cues such as the cowboy boots you wore at age seven.

Emotional Exaggeration
When a dream portrays a real-life situation that’s particularly emotional for the dreamer, sometimes the situation shows up as exaggerated in the dream. In other words, the subconscious mind may amplify the real-life situation, “making a mountain out of a molehill,” expressing how strongly you feel about the dream’s subject matter. For example, if in real life you saw a baby snake in your yard, and you’re very afraid of snakes, the snake might show up in a dream as a huge serpent attacking you. So, consider whether a particular dream symbol could represent a similar but less extreme situation in your waking life, about which you feel strong emotion.... Common Dreams

COUNTRYSIDE

Country scenes in dreams refer to the forces of nature within you. When you dream of the countryside, you are putting yourself in touch with your natural, spontaneous feelings.

If you have memories of feeling relaxed and happy in the country, your dream may recreate this with images of freedom and openness, urging you to clarify your own feelings about the way you are leading your life.

If country lanes appear in your dream, this indicates a meeting with what is natural in you; in some cases, what you encounter on the path can be disturbing, such as a wolf.

In countryside dreams, hills, mountains and slopes are images of problems you may be encountering in your waking life; the dream will indicate how confident you are in dealing with them. Are you climbing confidently or with fear? Remember, too, that the higher the mountain in your dream, the more difficult the challenge ahead. Are you gripped by a fear of falling as you climb? This would reflect your waking fear of losing your position or your reputation.

Or did you reach the highest pinnacle of the mountain or cliff and bask in your sense of achievement? If you dreamed of descending a mountain, this could indicate your desire to come down to earth or your exhaustion with your continual upwards struggle. It could also indicate a sense of regret.

If you fell down a mountain, this mirrors fears in waking life that you are losing control of your career.

Dream impediments such as chasms, gorges, ditches or hurdles also indicate difficulties you need to leap or surmount. For Freudians, climbing over a stile, like straddling a horse, is a common dream image of sexual intercourse. A dream featuring a boundary or frontier may suggest challenge and criticism, or the ability to overcome problems. Dream fences and gates also imply restrictions of some kind, but they can also indicate a need for security in waking life. Open plains, prairies or moorland evoke the endless possibilities of the unconscious, both exciting and frightening at the same time.

CROSSING

1- To dream of crossing a road is recognising the possibility of danger, fear or uncertainty. We are perhaps pitting ourselves against the majority, or something that is bigger than us.

2- We may encounter something we cannot control, and which may control us.

CROSSING / CORRIDOR

If you are crossing a road in your dream, this is an image of potential danger, fear and uncertainty in waking life.

If you are crossing a field, you may need to bring your feelings out into the open. Crossing a river or chasm depicts the end of one phase or stage of life and the beginning of another. To dream that you are at a crossroad signifies that you have come to a point in your life where you have several options from which to choose, all of which will take you to different destinations. This dream suggests you need to make an important decision, often in relation to career or life changes. To turn left at the crossroad can indicate following your intuition, whilst to turn right can mean making logical decisions. To dream that you are walking down a long corridor signifies your desperation in trying to escape a repetitive situation or behavior patterns.... The Element Encyclopedia

DEFORMITY / DISMEMBERMENT / PARALYSIS

A dream in which you find yourself deformed in some way is most likely a selfcritical dream; its interpretation will depend upon what body part or body parts are disfigured.

If you find yourself deformed in your dream, in what way do you feel disabled or frightening to others in waking life? Or have you been crippled by an emotional situation and been unable to do anything about it? Has someone in waking life hurt you? A dream of someone else’s deformity may be symbolic of a deformed part of yourself, but it might also be showing you some distasteful part of another person’s personality of which you were previously unaware. A person with a deformity in your dream may represent the trickster archetype mocking your own pretensions, although for Freud it represented a fear of male impotence, and for Jung it was a symbol of the devouring mother. A limp can be a warning from the unconscious of those dangers of pride and ambition that bring humiliation rather than success upon the dreamer.

If you are using crutches in your dream, are you relying on crutches, such as alcohol, nicotine or controlled drugs, in waking life?

Very often dreams of paralysis and numbness may be induced by the dreamer’s arm or leg going to sleep as the result of a trapped nerve.

If this is not the case, dreams of being unable to move (as if rooted to the spot) may be equating paralysis with frigidity; in waking life, the dreamer might suffer from fears of sexual intimacy. Your dream may also be referring to an area of your life in which things have stagnated or not progressed as they should have. This will usually be an emotional paralysis or a feeling of helplessness in a particular situation in your life. For example, you may be caught between a spouse and a lover, or between two possible courses of action. Dismemberment of your body in a dream suggests feelings of powerlessness in waking life. Is some situation tearing you apart or do you need to take your feelings apart?... The Element Encyclopedia

DEMONIC POSSESSION

The idea of being possessed by something outside of your human self is connected to relinquishing responsibility for certain feelings that are deemed unacceptable. This is a fairly common dream image and represents a sudden outburst of any number of pent-up, dark emotions, such as guilt or rage. At the heart of this symbol, however, is the concept of not feeling responsible for the behavior in question or the intensity of the feelings being expressed. As the saying goes, “The devil made me do it.” Such a dream is asking you to look at where you are either blaming someone else for your own overwhelming feelings or are unwilling to take responsibility for your own reactivity....

DISTRESSING, VIOLENT AND GRAPHIC IMAGES

In the 1800s, sexual dreams were considered to be a great source of worry to the men and women who had them because, at the time, sexual dreams were thought to cause mental and physical illness. It is, however, over-simplistic to describe all sexual dreams as a form of frustration or wish-fulfillment. The desire to have sex is a healthy human urge and your dreams allow you to give free reign to this urge as well as to indulge in all kinds of erotic experiments in which no emotional or physical harm is inflicted upon any one.

If you do wake up from a dream in which you have had sex with someone inappropriate or that contains graphic, disturbing or violent imagery, there is most likely to be a nonsexual interpretation. However, if you do find the dream distressing and it repeatedly recurs, be sure to seek professional counseling. Unless your erotic dreams are seriously disturbing (when psychiatric help should be sought), there is no reason why you should not enjoy them like any other fantasy.... The Element Encyclopedia

DREAM ANALYSIS

Sigmund Freud was the founder of modern therapeutic analysis of dreams. Freud encouraged clients to relax on a couch and allow free associations to arise in con­nection with aspects of their dream. In this way he helped the person move from the surface images (manifest content) of the dream to the underlying emotions, fantasies and wishes (latent content), often connected with early childhood. Be­cause dreams use condensation—a mass of different ideas or experiences all represented by one dream image or event— Freud stated that the manifest content was meagre’ compared with the ‘richness and variety’ of latent content.

If one suc­ceeds in touching the feelings and memories usually con­nected with a dream image, this becomes apparent because of the depth of insight and experience which arises. Although ideally the Freudian analyst helps the client discover their own experience of their dream, it can occur that the analyst puts to the client readymade views of the dream. Out of this has occurred the idea of someone else ‘analysing or telling us about our dream.

Carl Jung used a different approach. He applied amplifica­tion (see entry), helped the client explore their associations, used active imagination (see entry) and stuck to the structure of the dream. Because amplification also put to the client the information and experience of the therapist, again the dreamwork can be largely verbal and intellectual, rather than experiential.

In the approach of Fritz Perls (gestalt therapy) and Moreno (psychodrama), dream analysis is almost entirely experiential.

The person exploring the dream acts out or verbalises each role or aspect of the dream.

If one dreamt of a house, in gestalt one might stan by saying I am a house’ and then go on to describe oneself just as one is as the particular house in the dream.

It is important, even if the house were one existing externally, not to attempt a description of the external house, but to stay with the house as it was in the dream. This is like amplification, except the client gives all the information. This can be a very dramatic and emotional experience because we begin consciously to touch the immense realms of experience usually hidden behind the image. When successful this leads to personal insights into behaviour and creativity. See dream processing; amplification; gestalt dream work.

dream as a meeting place Any two people, or group of people who share their dreams, particularly if they explore the associated feelings and thoughts connected with the dream images, achieve social intimacy quickly. Whether it is a family sharing their dreams, or two fnends, an environment can be created in which the most profound feelings, painful and wonderful, can be allowed. Such exposure of the usually pri­vate areas of one s feelings and fears often presents new infor­mation to the dreamer, and also allows ventilation of what may never have been consciously expressed before. In doing so a healing release is reached, but also greater self under­standing and the opportunity to think over or reconsider what is discovered.

Herbert Reed, editor of the dream magazine Sundance, and resident in Virginia Beach, Va., initiated group dreaming ex­periments. It started because Reed noticed that in the dream groups he was running, when one of the group aired a prob­lem, other members would subsequently dream about that person’s problem. He went on to suggest the group should attempt this purposely and the resulting dreams shared to see if they helped the person with the problem.

The reported dreams often formed a more detailed view of the person’s situation. In one instance the group experienced many dream images of water. It aided the woman who was seeking help to admit she had a phobia of water and to begin thinking about learning to swim. In another experiment, a woman presented the problem of indecision about what college to transfer to and what to study. Her group subsequently said they were confused because they had not dreamt about school. Several had dreams about illicit sex. though, which led the woman to admit she was having an affair with a married man. She went on to realise that it was the affair which was underlying her indecision. She chose to end the affair and further her career.

Whatever may be underlying the results of Reed’s expen- ments, it is noticeably helpful to use the basic principles he is working with. They can be used by two people equally as well as a group—by a parent and child, wife and husband, busi­nessman and employee. One sets out to dream about each other through mutual agreement. Like any undertaking, the involvement, and therefore the results, are much more pro­nounced if there is an issue of reasonable importance behind the experiment. It helps if one imagines that during sleep you are going to meet each other to consider what is happening between you. Then sleep, and on waking take time to recall any dream. Note it down, even if it seems far removed from what you expected. Then explore its content using the tech­niques in dream processing.

Example: My wife and I decided to attempt to meet in our dreams. I dreamt I was in a room similar to the back bedroom of my previous marnage. My present wife was with me. She asked me to help her move the wardrobe. It reminded me of, but did not look like, the one which had been in that bed­room. I stood with my back to it, and reached my hands up to press on the top, inside. In this way I carried it to another wall. As I put it down the wood broke. I felt it ought to be thrown away’ (Thomas B). Thomas explored the dream and found he connected feelings about his first marriage with the wardrobe and bedroom. In fact the shabby wardrobe was Tom’s feelings of shabbiness at having divorced his first wife. In his first marriage, represented by the bedroom, he always felt he was married for life. In divorcing, he had done some­thing he didn’t like and was carrying it about with him. He says ‘1 am carrying this feeling of shabbiness and second best into my present relationship, and I need to get rid of it.’

dream as a spiritual guide Dreams have always been con­nected with the spiritual side of human experience, even though today many spiritual leaders disagree with consider­ation of dreams. Because dreams put the dreamer in touch with the source of their own internal wisdom and certainty, some conflict has existed between authoritative priesthood and public dreaming.

A lay person finding their own ap­proach to God in a dream might question the authority of the priests. No doubt people frequently made up dreams about God in order to be listened to. Nevertheless, despite opposi­tion, Matthew still dreamt of an angel appearing to him, Jo­seph was still warned by God to move Jesus; Peter still dreamt his dream of the unclean animals.

The modern scientific approach has placed large question marks against the concept of the human spirit. Study of the brain’s functions and biochemical activities have led to a sense of human personality being wholly a series of biological and biochemical events.

The results of this in the relationship between doctor and patient, psychiatrist and client, some­times results in the communication of human personality be­ing of little consequence. It may not be put into words, but the intimation is that if one is depressed it is a biochemical prob­lem or a brain malfunction.

If one is withdrawn or autistic, it is not that there is a vital centre of personality which has for some reason chosen to avoid contact, but that a biochemical or physiological problem is the cause—it’s nothing personal, take this pill (to change the biochemistry, because you are not really a person). Of course we have to accept that human personality must sometimes face the tragedy of biochemical malfunction, but we also need to accept that biochemical and physiological process can be changed by human will and courage.

In attempting to find what the human spirit is by looking at dreams, creativity stands out.

The spiritual nature may not be what we have traditionally considered it to be.

An overview of dreams and how dreamers relate to them suggests one amaz­ing fact. Let us call it the ‘seashell effect’. When we hear sounds in a shell that we hold to our ear, the noises heard seem exterior to oneself, yet they are most likely amplification of sounds created in our own ear, perhaps by the passage of blood. Imagine an electronic arcade machine which the player could sit in and, when running, the player could be engulfed in images, sounds, smell and sensation. At first there is shim­mering darkness, then a sound, and lights move. Is it a face seen, or a creature. Like Rorschach’s ink blots, the person creates figures and scenes out of the shapeless light and sound.

A devil appears which terrifies the player. People, de­mons, animals, God and angels appear and fade. Scenes are clearcut or a maelstrom of movement and ill-defined activity. Events arise showing every and any aspect of human experi­ence. Nothing is impossible.

If, on stepping out, we told the player that what occurred was all their own creation due to unconscious feelings, fears, habits, thoughts and physiological processes occurring within them, like the seashell effect, they might say ‘Good God, is that all it was, and I thought it was real. What a waste of time.’

Whether we can accept it or not, as a species we have created out of our own longings, fears, pain and perhaps vi­sion, God, with many different names—politics, money, dev­ils, nationalism, angels, an, and so on and on. All of it has flowed out of us. Perhaps we even deny we are the authors of the Bible, wars, social environments. Responsibility is diffi­cult.

It is easier to believe the source is outside oneself. And if we do take responsibility for our amazing creativity, we may feel ‘is that all it is—me?’ Yet out of such things, such fears, such drives, such unconscious patterns as we shape our dreams with, we shape our life and fonune, we shape our children, we shape the world and our future.

The shadow of fear we create in our dream, the situation of aloneness and anger, becomes a pattern of feelings, real in its world of mind. We create a monster, a Djinn, a devil, which then haunts and influences us. Or with feelings of hope, of purposiveness and love, create other forces in us and the world. But we are the creator. We are in no way separate from the forces which create our existence. We are those creative forces. In the deep­est sense, not just as an ego, we create ourselves, and we go on creating ourselves. We are the God humanity has looked so long for.

The second aspect of the human spirit demonstrated by dreams is consciousness.

The unconscious mind, if its func­tion is not clogged with a backlog of undealt with painful childhood experience and nonfunctional premises, has a pro­pensity to form gestalts. It takes pieces of experience and fits them together to form a whole. This is illustrated by how we form gestalts when viewing newsprint photographs, which are made up of many small dots. Our mind fits them together and sees them as a whole, giving meaning where there are only dots. When the human mind is working well, when the indi­vidual can face a wide range of emotions, from fear and pain to ecstasy, this process of forming gestalts can operate very creatively. This is because it needs conscious involvement, and if the personality is frightened of deep feeling, the uniting of deeply infantile and often disturbing cxpcrience is cut out. Yet these areas are very rich mines of information, containing our most fundamental learning.

If the process is working well, then one’s expenence is gradually transformed into insights which transcend and thereby transform one s personal life.

For instance, we have witnessed our own binh in some manner, we also see many others appeanng as babies. We see people ageing, dying. We see millions of events in our life and in others.

The uncon­scious, deeply versed in imagery, ritual and body language, out of which it creates its dreams, picks up information from music, architecture, traditional rituals, people walking in the street, the unspoken world of parental influence.

The sources are massive, unbelievable. And out of it all our mind creates meaning. Like a process of placing face over face over face until a composite face is formed, a synthesis of all the faces; so the unconscious scans all this information and creates a world view, a concept of life and death.

The archetypes Jung talks of are perhaps the resulting synthesis of our own expenence, reaching points others have met also.

If so, then Chnst might be our impression of humanity as a whole.

If we dare to touch such a synthesis of experience it may be seanng, breathtaking.

It breaks the boundaries of our present personality and con­cepts because it transcends. It shatters us to let the new vision emerge. It reaches, it soars, like an eagle flying above the single events of life. Perhaps because of this the great hawk of ancient Egypt represented the human spirit.

Lastly, humans have always been faced by the impossible.

To a baby, walking and not wetting its pants is impossible, but with many a fall and accident it does the impossible.

It is a god in its achievement.

To talk, to fly heavier-than-air planes, to walk on the Moon, were all impossible. Humans challenge the impossible every day. Over and over they fall, back into defeat. Many lie there broken. Yet with the next moment along come youngsters with no more sense than grasshoppers, and because they don’t know what the differ­ence is between right and left, do the impossible. Out of the infinite potential, the great unknown, they draw something new. With hope, with folly, with a wisdom they gain from who knows where, they demand more. And it’s a common everyday son of miracle. Mothers do it constantly for their children—transcending themselves. Lovers go through hell and heaven for each other and flower beyond who they were. You and I grow old on it as our daily bread, yet fail to see how holy it is. And if we turn away from it, it is because it offers no certainties, gives no authority, claims no reward.

It is the spir­itual life of people on the street. And our dreams remember, even if we fail.

For this is the body and blood of the human spirit.

dream as a therapist and healer There is a long tradition of using dreams as a base for both physical and psychological healing. One of the earliest recorded incidents of such healing is when Pharaoh’s ‘spirit was troubled, and he sent for all the magicians of Egypt and all its wise men; and Pharaoh told them his dream, but there was none who could interpret it’. Then Joseph revealed the meaning of the dream and so the healing of Pharaoh’s troubled mind took place (Genesis 41).

The Greek Temples of Asclepius were devoted to using dreams as a base for healing of body and mind (see dreams and ancient Greece).

The Iroquois Amerindians used a social form of dream therapy also (see Iroquoian dream cult).

The dream process was used much more widely throughout his­tory in such practices as Pentecostal Christianity, shaktipat yoga in India, and Anton Mesmer’s groups (see sleep move­ments).

Sigmund Freud pioneered the modern approach to the use of dreams in therapy, but many different approaches have developed since his work. Examples of the therapeutic action of gaining insight into dreams are to be found in the entnes on abreaction, recurring dreams, reptiles.

The entry on dream processing gives information about using a dream to gain insight and healing. See also dream as meeting place.

A feature which people who use their dreams as a thera­peutic tool mention again and again is how dreams empower them. Many of us have an unconscious feeling that any impor­tant healing work regarding our body and mind can only be undertaken and directed by an expert, the expert might be a doctor, a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, or osteopath. Witness­ing the result of their own dream process, even if helped by an expert, people feel in touch with a wonderful internal process which is working actively for their own good. One woman, who had worked on her dream with the help of a fnend (non expert), said It gave me great confidence in my own internal process. I realised there was something powerful in myself working for my own good. It was a feeling of cooperating with life.’ One is frequently amazed by one’s own resources of wisdom, penetrating insight and sense of connection with life, as met in dreamwork. This is how dreams play a pan in helping one towards wholeness and balance.

The growing awareness of one’s central view of things, which is so wide, piercing and often humorous, brings developing self respect as the saga of one’s dreams unfolds.

There may be no hint of this, however, if a person simply records their dreams without attempting to find a deeply felt contact with their contents.

It is in the searching for associ­ated feelings and ideas that the work of integrating the many strands of one’s life begins. Gradually one weaves, through a co-operative action with the dream process, a greater unifica­tion of the dark and the light, the painful and transcendent in one’s nature.

The result is an extraordinary process of educa­tion. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

DREAM PROCESSING

Below are described simple techniques which make it possible to gain information quickly from dreams. They have been put as a series of questions.

What is the background to the dream? The most imponant aspects of your everyday life may have influenced the dream or feature in it. Briefly consider any aspects of your life which connect with what appears in the dream. Example: ‘1 have a plane to catch. I get to the plane but the suitcase is never big enough for my clothing which I have left behind. I am always anxious about stuff left behind. I wake still with the feeling of anxiety’ (Jane). When asked, Jane said plane flights had been a big feature of her life. She had moved home often, travelling to different pans of the world, leaving friends and loved ones behind.

What is the main action in the dream? There is often an over­all activity such as walking, looking, worrying, building some­thing, or trying to escape. Define what it is and consider if it is expressive of something you are doing in waking life. Activi­ties such as walking or building a house need to be seen as generalisations; walking can simply represent taking a direc­tion in life. When you have defined the action, look for fur­ther information under the other headings in this book, such as swimming or sitting.

What is your role in the dream? Are you a friend, lover, sol­dier, dictator, watcher or participant in the dream? Consider this in relationship with your everyday life, especially in con­nection with how the dream presents it. Where possible, look for the entry on the role in this book. See dreamer.

Are you active or passive in the dream? By passive is meant not taking the leading role, being only an observer, being directed by other people and events, If you are passive, consider if you live in a similar attitude in your life. See active/passive.

What do you feel in the dream? Define what is felt emotionally and physically. In the physical sense are you tired, cold, re­laxed or hungry? In the emotional sense do you feel sad, angry, lost, tender or frightened anywhere in the dream? This helps clarify what feeling area the dream is dealing with.

It is important also to define whether the feelings in the dream were satisfyingly expressed or whether held back.

If held back they need fuller expression. See emotions and mood.

Is there a because’ factor in the dream? In many dreams something happens, fails to happen, or appears . . . be­cause! For instance, trapped in a room you find a door to escape through. All is dark beyond and you do not go through the door ‘because’ you are frightened of the dark. In this case the ‘because’ factor is fear.

The dream also suggests you are trapped in an unsatisfying life through fear of opportunity or the unknown.

Am I meeting the things I fear in my dream? Because a dream is an entirely inward thing, we create it completely out of our own internal feelings, images, creativity, habits and insights. So even the monsters of our dream are a pan of ourself.

If we run from them it is only aspects of ourself we are avoiding. Through defining what feelings occur in the dream you may be able to clarify what it is you are avoiding. See nightmares; dream as spiritual guide.

What does the dream mean? We alone create the dream while asleep. Therefore, by looking at each symbol or aspect of the dream, we can discover from what feelings, thoughts or expe­rience, what drive or what insight we have created the drama of the dream. In a playful relaxed way, express whatever you think, feel, remember or fantasise when you hold each symbol in mind. Say or write it all, even the seemingly trivial or dan­gerous’ bits. It helps to act the pan of each thing if you can; for instance as a house you might describe yourself as ‘a bit old, but with open doors for family and friends to come in and out. I feel solid and dependable, but I sense there is something hidden in my cellar’. Such statements portray one­self graphically. Consider whatever information you gather as descriptive of your waking life. Try to summarise it, as this will aid the gaining of insight.

Try amplifying your dream You will need the help of one or two friends to use this method.

The basis is to take the role of each part of the dream, as described above. This may seem strange at first, but persist. Supposing your name is Julia and you dreamt you were carrying an umbrella, but failed to use it even though it was raining, you would talk in the first person present—I am an umbrella. Julia is carrying me but for some reason doesn’t use me.’ Having finished saying what you could about yourself, your friend(s) then ask you questions about yourself as the dream figure or object. These questions need to be simple and directly about the dream symbol. So they could ask Are you an old umbrella?’ Does Julia know she is canying you?’ ‘What is your function as an umbrella? ‘Are you big enough to shelter Julia and someone else?’ And so on.

The aim of the questions is to draw out information about the symbol being explored.

If it is a known person or object you are in the role of—your father for instance—the replies to the questions need to be answered from the point of view of what happened in the dream, rather than as in real life. Listen to what you are saying about yourself as the dream symbol, and when your questioneKs) has finished, review your statements to see if you can see how they refer to your life and yourself.

If you are asking the questions, even if you have ideas regarding the dream, do not attempt to interpret. Put your ideas into simple questions the dreamer can respond to. Maintain a sense of curiosity and attempt to understand, to make the dream plain in an everyday language sense. Lead the dreamer towards seeing what the dream means through the questions. When you have exhausted your questions ask the dreamer to summarise what they have gathered from their replies. See postures, movements and body language for an example of how to work with body movement to explore a dream meaning.

Can / alter the dream to find greater satisfaction? Imagine yourself in the dream and continue it as a fantasy or day­dream. Alter the dream in any way that satisfies. Experiment with it, play with it, until you find a fuller sense of self expres­sion.

It is very imponant to note whether any anger or hostil­ity is in the dream but not fully expressed.

If so, let yourself imagine a full expression of the anger. It may be that as this is practised more anger is openly expressed in subsequent dreams. This is healthy, allowing such feelings to be vented and redirected into satisfying ways, individually and socially. In doing this do not ignore any feelings of resistance, pleasure or anxiety. Satisfaction occurs only as we leam to acknowl­edge and integrate resistances and anxieties into what we ex­press. This is a very important step. It gradually changes those of our habits which trap us in lack of satisfaction, poor cre­ativity or inability to resolve problems.

Summary To summarise effectively gather the essence of what you have said about each symbol and the dream as a whole and express it in everyday language. Imagine you are explaining to someone who knows nothing about yourself or the dream. Bnng the dream out of its symbols into everyday comments about yourself.

A man dreamt about a grey, dull office. When he looked at what he said about the office he realised he was talking about the grey, unimaginative world he grew up in after the Second World War, and how it shaped him.

Further information on using these techniques can be found in Tony Crisp s work The Instant Dream Book, published by C.W. Daniel.

DREAMING OF VESSELS, VASES, UTENSILS, MIRROR, SCISSORS ETC.

Vessels symbolise servants and lads while stove, hearths, grates, cauldrons, lamps, table-cloths etc. symbolise grief, sorrow and anxiety which will be felt by the head of the household if the Arabic masculine equivalent is used for any of the above words. But it it is used as a feminine such as qidr, qifah, maa’idah, musarrajah and qas’ah, then they symbolise a person’s wife.. As for the word sufrah though feminine, it symbolises the husband all the same.

(Qidr : Cauldron, Cooking Pot; Qifah : large basket; Maa’idah : table-cloth; Musrrajah : lamp; Qas’ah trough)

DRESSING (CLOTHES)

Dreams of getting dressed symbolize that you are suiting up and showing up in life, preparing to present yourself in a way that represents the image you show to the world. You are covering up your nakedness and authenticity with a socially acceptable exterior.

The clothes you chose to wear are significant and say a lot about how you want the world/your peers to see you.

If you dream of getting “dressed up”, then you are preparing yourself energetically to make an impression. This dream may be a symbol that good news is forthcoming and will be worth celebrating. See Clothes.

DRESSING IN OTHER PEOPLE’S CLOTHES

Clothes are the protective layer that keeps you warm, but they are also a way to express your personality or hide imperfections. In dreams, what you wear is often a symbol of your self-image or inner self, and if you dress in clothes that obviously belong to other people, this is a clear sign that you have problems accepting yourself as you truly are. It can, on the other hand, suggest admiration for the person whose clothes you are wearing.

For Jungians, wearing clothes of the opposite sex may signal the dreamer’s need to express the anima (female aspects of the male nature) or the animus (male aspects of the female nature). For Freudians, a child dressing up in adult clothes, particularly if the clothes are those of the opposite sex, may suggest childhood rivalry with one parent for the affections of the opposite sex parent.

If you are simply changing outfit in your dream, this may suggest altering your mode of behavior, role or mood.

If you astonish yourself by shopping for, buying and wearing unusual clothes in your dream that you would never normally wear in waking life, then your unconscious may have been suggesting that you have become too set in your ways and outlook, and that it is time to open your mind up to new opinions. Is it time for you to break out of your rut and for other people to sit up and notice you?

On the other hand if you dress casually in waking life and dream of wearing a business suit, your unconscious may be urging you to adopt a more business- like approach.

If you were surprised by the color of the clothes in your dream— either your own or those belonging to someone else—then see if that color has significance for you (see COLORS).

If you find yourself dressed in expensive designer clothes you couldn’t normally afford, this may also be simple wish- fulfillment, especially if you are fashion conscious.... The Element Encyclopedia

DRESSING UP / STYLING YOURSELF

Makeup usually symbolizes falsehood in human relations. Consequently, when the characters of our dreams groom themselves, these images are related to cheating and lying.

The same happens when you use makeup yourself. Distorting your image can prevent you, momentarily, from seeing your own shortcomings. But sooner or later the mask will disappear and your disguise will not hide the truth any longer. ... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

EJACULATION, EMISSION

Example: I was in a cubicle or small toilet with a very black coloured woman. She told me there was something wrong with her vagina. She was undressed. I rubbed her vagina and we both felt enormous passion. I then woke but couldn’t at first remember the dream. I have re­frained from sexual intercourse for some weeks, as I always feel shattered/tired afterwards. Anyway I awoke very wet, yet couldn’t remember any ejaculation. Then I remembered the dream and continued it in fantasy. I experienced powerful urges to find a woman to have a non-committed sexual rela­tionship with. But in the end I wanted to share my feelings with my wife, but she seemed deep asleep’ (Alan P).

The example shows how our sexual needs attempt to satisfy them­selves even though we may make a conscious attempt to deny them.

The ejaculation, male or female, shows the sexual na­ture of one’s dream, even if the symbols seem to have no obvious connection.

The attitudes in one’s dream also show something of our relationship to sex. This may be mechanical, fearful, loving, etc. Alan sees sex as a problem to be solved, and has difficulties around commitment. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

EXAM / TEST (UNIVERSITY)

Difficulty at work. Passing a test points to ambition; failing a test points to inferiority complexes. Also, a symbol of differentiation and self- testing. According to Freud and Adler, memories of childhood misdeeds and punishment that are never forgotten. Today in psychoanalysis, the test is more indicative of life struggles.

One of the most common dreams is failing an exam. In the dream one is not prepared for the exam. In a variation, one is onstage and doesn’t know the lines. Both situations refer to a fear of failing in public.

The dreamer should examine his self-esteem. In the exam situation, usually the subject—or question one doesn’t know how to answer—gives an indication of the field in which one feels insecure. Onstage, the play or scene is sometimes a key to the field of fear.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

EXAMINATION / DIAGNOSIS

Examination and diagnosis in dreams, if favorable, indicates that you feel secure and satisfied in waking life.

If you are diagnosing illness in a dream, this points to insecurity and an over-sensitive approach to life.

If you dream that you are diagnosed with a fatal illness or have a fatal illness, it might be worthwhile seeing your doctor for a check-up as illness has been diagnosed in this way before; typically, however, such dreams represent any condition or situation that you feel is taking you away from the life you were meant to live.

EXERCISING

Do you need to exercise more in waking life? If you dream of exercising with weights, perhaps you need to lose some weight? Alternatively, your unconscious may be urging you to exercise your mind or your common sense in a particular situation.

If you dream that you are jogging, you appear to have your responsibilities under control but you may also feel dissatisfied or bored with certain aspects of your life, especially if you dream you are on a treadmill.

If you are jumping or leaping in your dream, this suggests ambition and a desire to move forward with your life, or progress in your career.

If you are kicked, or kick someone else in your dream, perhaps there is something in your waking life that you disagree with or disapprove of. To dream that you are hopping could suggest childish or immature behavior on your part. Alternatively, it may indicate your tendency to jump from task to task, or not being able to stay in one place.

If you are stretching in a dream, your unconscious may be reminding you to work on your flexibility, not just in your body, but in your approach to life.

FACTORY / OFFICE / PROCESSING PLANT

To dream of these types of building, filled with people slaving away on computers, production lines or machines, might be a reflection of the obsessive worker part of your personality and any anxieties that you may feel about being a workaholic. The conditions in the factory, office or plant will symbolize the health of your creative drive.

If the conditions are hideous like those in a sweatshop, are you working in a highly paid job that discourages your spirit? If the factory is high-tech or manic, consider how it reflects your love of the work you do. See also SCHOOL AND WORK.... The Element Encyclopedia

FACTS TO BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION BEFORE A MU’ABBIR INTERPRETS A DREAM

It is imperative that the mu’abbir or interpreter understands fully and properly every details of a dream seen by any person. He should be able to weigh it on the scale of the rules of interpretation.

If the numerous facts emerging from a dream are such that they correspond with each other logically then such a dream will be deemed as a genuine and authentic dream. But if the facts emerging from such a dream are such that they do not correspond with each other then the interpreter should reflect on the apparent meaning of the words. Whichever meaning is nearest to the rules of interpretation, such a meaning should be adopted

If a dream is of a complicated nature so that if cannot be weighed on the scale of the rules of interpretation then such a dream will be deemed as meaningless.

If a certain dream causes the interpreter to become dubious then he should appeal to the conscience of the observer of such a dream: If the dream concerns Salaah, he should question him about Sallah; if it concerns a journey he should question him about the journey; if it concerns marriage, he should question him about marriage. Thereafter, the mu’abbir will interpret to the best of his knowledge

The interpreter should be extremely cautious when interpreting a dream: If the dream evidences obscenity and indecency he should either use pleasant words when interpreting it or simply avoid interpreting it.

It is necessary for a mu’abbir to establish the biological and logical classification of thins and give its interpretation accordingly.

The biological and logical classification of things can be made as follows : (a) geneses (b) species (c) nature and characteristics.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

FAMILY OCCASION

Dreams that focus on happy family gettogethers, celebrations, anniversaries, meals or meetings could be explained as wish-fulfillment, nostalgia or even anticipation. Perhaps your dreaming mind is recalling a happy event from the past or mourning the loss of those happy times when the family was all together. You may also be looking forward to meeting up with your family in the future.

If the family dream is stressful, however, your dreaming mind may have conjured up images of real or imagined family arguments, disagreements, tensions and grudges to highlight and bring to your attention those unresolved tensions associated with your family life that are still holding you back in your waking life; for example, sibling rivalry or lack of respect for authority or the parent figure. Alternatively if your family life is healthy and happy, and you still have dreams in which family arguments occur, your dreaming mind may conjure up such images to highlight possible feelings of insecurity; perhaps you feel that you are failing to live up to the standards and expectations of your relatives....

FIREWORK / EXPLOSION / INFERNO

If you watched a fantastic firework display in your dream, are you feeling particularly good about yourself right now? Has there been a personal triumph? Or should you interpret the dream sexually, as fireworks are symbols of sexual climax in the movies. On the other hand, fireworks may denote explosions of furious rage and any dream explosion may reflect pent-up fury or frustration that is building up in waking life. Is there something in waking life that is making you tense and angry? Dreams in which you watch helplessly as a raging inferno destroys your home may be warnings from your unconscious to fit a smoke alarm in your home or office, but they may also have highlighted your current overheated emotional stage. It is important to ask yourself who or what is provoking your rage and whether the full force of your anger is about to be unleashed in waking life. And what would the results of the explosion be— devastation that all you have worked for has gone up in smoke, or liberation that you have burned your bridges and can arise energized from the ashes?

To dream of a fireman represents selfcontrol and your ability to deal with your energies, burning desires or emotional emergencies in the waking world. To dream that you caused a fire may be a warning from your unconscious that you are playing with fire and may be in danger of getting your fingers burned if you go ahead with a certain project or get involved with a certain person.

If you find yourself on fire, your passions may be consuming you and you may feel hopeless and trapped in waking life. If, however, you managed to put a fire out, this shows that you are asserting control over the fire raging within you.

If someone else started a fire, your unconscious may have been telling you to watch that person carefully in waking life or to carry out some simple safety checks.... The Element Encyclopedia

FORBIDDEN DESIRES

Desires that are forbidden in waking life can be repressed by our unconscious, and when this happens, a conflict ensues between the conscious mind and the unconscious drives that are striving for expression. According to Freud and other dream analysts, we can use our dreams to safely explore this conflict and allow forbidden desires a mode of expression. For example, you may have a dream in which your sister falls ill if you have had an argument with her in waking life; if you are attracted to someone who is married, you may have a dream about having an affair with them.

Dreams can also express the conflict between what you ought to do and what you want to do so; for example, you may have a dream where you tell your boss exactly what you think of them. Other conflicts can center on thinking versus feeling, or rationalization versus intuition, and your dreams can be used to develop and resolve this conflict (see ARCHETYPES). For example, if you are a scientist you may have a dream that you fall passionately in love with a stranger. Your unconscious is urging you to develop the intuitive, impulsive, unexplored and underdeveloped aspect of your nature.... The Element Encyclopedia

FREUD, SIGMUND (1856-1939)

When Freud, as a qualified doctor and neurologist, became interested in psychology, it was still a branch of philosophy. He gave to it a geography of the human mind, showed the influence the unconscious has upon waking personality, and brought dreams to the attention of the scientific community. His book The Interpretation of Dreams was a turning point in bringing concepts on dreaming from a primitive level to alignment with modem thought. With enormous courage, and against much opposition, he showed the place sexuality has in the development of con­scious self awareness. Freud defined dreams as being:

1- Thoughts in pictures’—a process of thinking while asleep.

2-‘Ego alien’. They have a life and will which often appears to be other than our conscious will. This led older cultures to believe that dreams were sent by spirits or God.

3-‘Hallucinatory’. We believe the reality of the dream while in it.

4-‘Drama’. Dreams are not random images. They are ‘stage managed’ into very definite, sometimes recurring, themes and plots.

5-‘Moral standards’. Dreams have very different moral stan­dards than our waking personality.

6-‘Association of ideas’. In dreaming we have access to in­fant or other memories or experience we would find very difficult to recall while awake.

Freud originally said that one of the main functions of a dream was wish fulfilment, and an expression of the ‘primary process of human thinking’ unaffected by space, time and logic. Later, in considering recurring dreams which re-enact a recent traumatic incident, he agreed that dreams were not only an expression of the ‘pleasure principle’. W.H.R. Rivers, studying dreams connected with war neuroses, saw such dreams as attempts to resolve current emotional problems.

Although there is still controversy regarding whether there can be a valid ‘dream dictionary’, Freud himself saw dream symbols as having consistent meaning so frequently that one could attribute an interpretation to them independently of the dreamer’s associations.

When two separate things with opposing interpretations are seen in a dream then the stronger or better of the two interpretations will be given. As an example is a person sees a bathroom and himself as removing hair using a lotion or lime-whereas a bathroom represents grief and sorrow and removing hair using a lotion or lime represents the removing of grief and sorrow- it means that his grief and sorrow will be removed, for the dream of removing hair using lime or lotion is regarded as stronger or better....

Vision: If you are hypnotizing another person in a dream: be careful, you are trying to influence others in real life, to get somebody over to your side.

If you are hypnotized: be very careful here too; others are trying to influence you. Are you already being controlled by another person? Being hypnotized: right now you are not sure what to do or what not to do. You are unsure about the consequences of your actions.

Hypnotizing someone else: you want to have more influence over others and events. Have you already too much influence in real life? If so, this dream is a warning. At present you seem confused!

HYPNOSIS AND DREAMS

Many experiments have been done using hypnosis in connection with dreams. In the early pan of this century Carl Schroetter hypnotised Miss E, a pharmacist, in an attempt to test Freud’s theory of symbol formation. He suggested Miss E would dream of having homosexual inter­course with a female friend, L.

The dream she subsequently reported was ‘1 sit in a small dirty cafe holding a tremendous French newspaper ...

A woman with a strong Yiddish ac­cent—L is Jewish—asks me twice, “Don’t you need any­thing?” I don’t answer . . . she comes a third time . . . I recognise her as my acquaintance. She holds a threadbare suitcase with a sticker on it that reads “For ladies only!” I leave the cafe with her . . . she hangs onto me which I find unpleasant but suffer it . . . Before her house she pulls out an enormous bunch of keys and gives one to me. “1 trust only you with it; it is the key to this case. You might like to use it. Just watch that my husband doesn’t get hold of it.” ‘ The dream contains several of the classical Freudian symbols of sex, such as the suitcase, the key and the phrase For ladies only’. Miss E had not, according to Schroetter, heard or read of Freud’s ideas.

Roffenstein, suspecting Miss E may have known something of Freudian ideas, chose ‘a 28-year-old, totally uneducated nursemaid of lower than average intelligence, who grew up and still lives in an uneducated milieu’. He suggested she dream of intercourse with her father. She reported: ‘I dreamt about my father, as if he had presented me with a great bag and with it he gave me a large key. It was a very large key. It looked like the key to a house. I had a sad feeling. I opened the bag. I snake jumped out against my mouth; I shrieked aloud.

More recent expenments are reponed by Woods and Greenhouse in New Wbrld of Dreams.

The suggestion was made to one subject that as a child she had wet the bed and her mother scolded her. That night she dreamt she fell into a pond in winter and her mother was angry.

An interesting aspect of these experiments is that another subject under hyp­nosis was told the dream and asked what it meant. Without hesitation she said. Oh, that girl must have wet the bed.’ This and other experiments suggest humans have an inherent, al­though perhaps unconscious, ability to understand the lan­guage of dreams. ...

INDIGESTION / NAUSEA / SICKNESS

In dreams, indigestion suggests an idea or attitude that does not agree with you or which you are finding hard to stomach in waking life; it may be something you have taken in, or upon, yourself that you did not realize was toxic when you welcomed it. We are ruled by our emotions and the stomach—being a nerve center which reacts to negative stimuli—is often the first to register changes in our emotional state. The dream may also point to actual indigestion.

Alternatively, could your stomach have been protesting in your dream because it is literally crying out for nourishment, either literally or because you are feeling starved of love?

If your intestines were the source of discomfort in your dream, could your unconscious have been focusing your attention on them to ask if you have the guts to do something that you have been dreading? If you felt nauseous or sick in your dream, your dreaming mind might have been trying to pinpoint a bad or negative feeling in waking life with which you need to deal; if you were physically sick in your dream, this suggests you were getting rid of it. Perhaps you are sick of a job, a relationship or a situation in waking life. A dream of a stomach ache may refer to your having to stomach someone or something, and feeling unable to do so. Try to discover who or what is upsetting you.... The Element Encyclopedia

INFORMATION PROCESSING

According to modem theory, the amount of information the human brain can hold is more than is held in all the books in the Library of the British Museum. Gradually it is becoming recognised that informa­tion gathered is not simply what we ‘learn’ from vocal com­munication, or read, or set out to leam. In fact an unimagin­able amount of information gathering has gone on prior to speech, and goes on at an unimaginable speed prior to school years. Consider a small preschool child walking into the gar­den It has learnt gradually to relate to muscular movement, balance and its own motivations and feeling reactions in a way enabling it to walk. It has already grasped thousands of bits of ‘information’ about such things as plants in the garden, the neighbour’s cat, the road outside, possible dangers, safe areas. Stupendous amounts have already been absorbed about interrelationships.

An idea of ‘reality’ in the sense of what is probable, and what would be dangerously out of norm, has been formed. We gather information in ways little recognised. How our parents relate to their environment and to other people is all recorded and leamt from, bringing about enor­mous ‘programming’ affecting how we act in similar circum­stances.

As explained in the entry on the dream as spiritual guide, we have great ability in ‘reading’ symbols, ritual, an, music, body language, architecture, drama, and extracting ‘meaning’ from them. So we have immense stores of information from these sources. Work done with people exploring their dreams over a long period suggests that some of these information resources are never focused on enough to make conscious what we have actually learnt. Sometimes it is enough simply to ask oneself a question to begin to focus some of these resources. Such questions as what social attitude and response to authority did I learn at school? What feeling reaction do I get when I am in the presence of someone I know well? These may help to bring to awareness aspects of information gath­ered but remaining unconscious. These unfocused, or uncon­scious, areas of information can explain why we have appar­ently irrational feeling responses to some people or situations.

the body A lot of what we call the unconscious are basic physiological and psychological functions.

For instance in a modern house, when we flush the toilet, we do not have to bring a bucket of water and fill the cistern again.

A self regu­lating mechanism allows water to flow in and switches it off when full. This is a clever built-in function that had to be done manually at one time. Nowadays we have built into some dwellings fire sprinklers or burglar alarms. Through re­peated actions over thousands or millions of years, many ba­sic functions, or functions only switched on in emergencies, have been built into our being. We do not need to think about them, just as we do not have to give awareness to the fire sprinkling system or toilet each time we walk through a room or flush the toilet. They are therefore unconscious.

Research with animals in connection with rewards and conditioned reflexes has shown that by gradually leading an animal towards a certain performance by rewarding it each time it gets nearer to the goal, it can do the most amazing things. It can increase the circulation of blood to its ear, slow its heart, and in fact influence body functions which were thought to be completely involuntary. Where human beings have learnt to use some of these techniques—such as raising the temperature of an arm at will, or helping to increase the efficiency of the immune system—the actual processes still remain unconscious. In general, however, the body’s func­tions are thought to be outside our awareness, and so are one of the areas of the unconscious. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

analysis of a dream

Silvia dreamed: “I was laying in my bed when I discovered an enormous cockroach on the ceiling of my bedroom, just above my head. It was dark green, it emitted a faint buzz, and it moved its long antennae quickly, brushing my face. I felt panicked, but I didn’t dare move or shout for fear of startling it or that it would jump on me. I stayed immobile, with eyes closed, wishing it would disappear.” wishing it would disappear.”

Insects tend to reflect our fears or insecurities.

If they are gigantic, often it indicates the oppression we suffer from an authoritative figure, toward which we feel a series of emotions such as repulsion, fear, respect... It took Silvia several days to understand the meaning of her dream. It happened one day when she was meeting with her boss. He was pointing out a careless error and reproaching her for incompetence. The dark green suit he wore made her remember the dream. Then, she saw it clearly. Although Silvia worked a lot, she felt that it was never enough for her boss, who took every opportunity to criticize her work. The tentacles of the enormous insect brushing her reflected the sharp gaze of her boss, always waiting for the smallest mistake to tell her off. Although it was unfair, Silvia did not dare protest, she just nodded her head, hoping it would be over as soon as possible. She was afraid that her boss would get angry or, even worse, fire her....

If one sees the Day of Reckoning in a dream and people searching for an intercessor among the prophets, upon all of them be peace, it means social unrest and privation ofthe poor and needy from one’s assistance.

If one’s neighbor intercedes for him on such a day in a dream, it means that one will benefit from his neighbor, or receive his help, or find a helper in a friend in times of difficulty. Ifone sees his own son interceding on his behalf in a dream, it means that he will benefit from him or through his business connections, and the same is true if one intercedes on behalf of someone else in a dream.

KISSING

Kissing symbolizes a reconciliation with the person receiving this affectionate gesture. The dream shows the attachment you feel for that person; perhaps it is a repressed attraction in real life. Likewise, this kind of dream may come from guilt caused by your minimal affection for someone. Although it might be a sexual dream, kisses, as we said, are identified more with love and how you offer it to others. However, they also have other negative connotations, such as the kiss of death or the kiss of betrayal. In this sense, the dream is showing your innermost feelings.

LOSING SOMETHING

If you lose something in your dream, this suggests that you have become distracted in waking life and have lost sight of what really matters. Ask yourself what it is you have lost and what it may symbolize. It may be an opportunity, a relationship, a way of thinking or even your own identity. Do you no longer feel as if you belong somewhere? Alternatively, the image may be a symbol of something that is missing from your life that you never had in the first place. For example, if you lost your car, you may have lost a sense of direction; if you lost money, you may feel you’ve lost your self-confidence or something you value about yourself; if you lost your key, have you forgotten a solution to a problem or perhaps the key to self-knowledge? If you simply can’t work out what significance your lost object has to you, it might help to do a free association exercise (write down the first 10 or so words that immediately come to mind in relation to that symbol) to decipher the lost object’s symbolism, to decipher what it is that you need to find.

If you dream that you are recovering lost property, the nature of the property recovered, together with the feelings of relief and joy it brings, will indicate the focus of your dream. For example, if you recover your purse, this is linked to identity and a renewed sense of self.

If you recover your wallet, this is linked to finances. Do you now feel in a stronger position? If you recover a camera are you trying to hold on to memories or seeking a false sense of security? If you recover lost clothes are you seeking a new self image? If you recover shoes are you recovering your footing? If you recover your lost phone are you re-establishing communication with some one?... The Element Encyclopedia

LUCKY SIGN

If various objects, amulets or talismans that traditionally symbolize luck appear in your dream, such as horseshoes, pebbles and four-leaved clovers appear in your dream, this is a positive sign. Bear in mind, however, that the nature of luck is that it always changes, so you need to appreciate what you have or move quickly to capitalize on your current good fortune. The following list is by no means comprehensive but mentions some of the well-known symbols of good fortune.

If your lucky charm doesn’t appear here, your dreaming mind might still be sending you a positive message; it might also be urging you to strengthen your defenses or protect yourself in areas of your personality or your life where you may appear vulnerable.

Ankh: An ancient Egyptian symbol resembling a cross with a loop at the top. It symbolizes the power of life and cosmic knowledge, and is the oldest and most popular amulet or religious symbol used by the Egyptians. When worn, carried or featured in any other way in your dream, the ankh symbolizes good health, as well as promoting fertility and the powers of intuition. Arrowhead: In waking life, those who believe in lucky charms carry an arrowhead for protection against enemies, bad luck, hexes, jealousy, evil spirits and all other negative forces. They may place an arrowhead over their front door or under the doormat to prevent burglars from breaking into their homes, and keep one in their car to help guard against accidents and theft.

If an arrowhead appears in your dream, this is a powerful symbol of the need for protection and security in your life. Crescent moon: A sacred symbol of the Goddess, and also a symbol of magic, fertility and the secret powers of nature. Believers often wear a piece of pink quartz shaped like a crescent moon as a love charm to attract a lover or soulmate. Four-leaved clover: In waking life, it is thought that fortune will smile on you if you carry a four-leaved clover, or if you wear a pin, ring or pendant shaped like one. The four-leaved clover is believed to be the most powerful of all lucky charms and was used by the ancient Druids as a charm against evil and to attain clairvoyant powers. Garlic: This aromatic bulb is one of the oldest and most famous forms of natural protection against evil forces, and is used throughout the world in a variety of ways to keep away vampires, sorcerers, demonic spirits and all other forms of evil. It is also used by many witches and shamans as a healing amulet. Horn: The gold horn is a popular necklacecharm worn by Italians as an amulet against the evil eye. When worn by a man, the horn—an ancient and obvious phallic symbol—inc reases sex appeal and promotes male virility. Horseshoe: This is a well-known good luck symbol in many parts of the world. According to superstition, nail an iron horseshoe over your door with the convex side pointing up for protection against sorcery, bad luck and the evil eye. For good luck, believers nail it over their door with the convex side pointing down.

If a horseshoe appears in your dream, this is a positive sign suggesting good health and positive energy in your life. Rabbit’s foot: perhaps the most used good-luck charm in modern times, this is usually carried on a keychain or worn on a necklace to ward off accidents and evil, and to increase good luck, happiness and fertility. Skeleton key: Wear an old skeleton key on a chain around your neck as an amulet to open the doors of opportunity and success, guard against the evil eye, and repel sorcery and all evil spirits. Skull and crossbones: A symbol of death once used by pirates and, more recently, as a warning label on poisons, the skull and crossbones can be used as a powerful amulet to protect the wearer against evil forces. It possesses the power to reverse any hex or curse and return the evil to the person who cast it upon you. This symbol is also popular among gamblers, as it is believed to keep their good luck from turning bad. Unicorn: The unicorn is an ancient symbol of chastity and protection, and its fabled horn was said to be used in medieval times as an amulet to detect poisons in the food or drink of kings, queens and popes.

To promote fertility or increase sexual magnetism, believers wear any type of jewelry shaped like a unicorn. The symbol of this magnificent mystical creature also pierces the plans of enemies and keeps the wearer safe from all evil forces. Wishbone: Believers wear gold wishbone-shaped jewelry—or even an actual turkey or chicken wishbone on a necklace—as an amulet to attract good luck, and t o make wishes and dreams come true....

MANUMISSION

(Abraham; Ismail: Immolation; Liberation) Manumission of a slave in a dream represents a ritual sacrifice, or the offering of an animal during the Feats of Immolation, on the 10th day of the Arabic month of ZulHijjah, and following the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

If one gives permission to his wife to leave him in a dream, it means that they will be divorced.

If a bondman sees himself liberated in a dream, it means that he or his master may die shortly.

If a bondman dies in a dream, it means that he will be liberated. Manumission means departure from bondage.

MERMAID / MERMAN / SIREN

The sea temptress combines beauty with vanity and lures sailors to their doom.

If you are a man and you dream of mermaids and sirens, this may represent the image of a woman who you feel you could love, but who may also reject and destroy you. To dream that you follow her siren song suggests shallow will-power, or being easily misled by lust and base passion. So potent is this myth that the word siren is today used to describe a heartless, treacherous but irresistibly seductive woman. Alternatively, the mermaid may represent your anima, the feminine part of your personality, who, by leading you out to sea, is encouraging you to explore the depths of your own emotions.

Traditionally, the mermaid or merman belongs to the sea as well as the land and this symbolizes an ability to be deeply emotional and deeply practical at the same time.

In a woman’s dream, the mermaid is thought to represent a love rival. Finally, mermaids and mermen are feminine and masculine images of the link between your conscious self and darker forces you may not understand. Many stories tell of the difficulties of mating with a creature from the sea, showing how difficult it can be to unite the two sides of our nature.... The Element Encyclopedia

METAMORPHOSIS

Dreams in which living beings experience changes are symbols of evolution. If, for example, you see the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly, this means you should trust your ability to the end, without allowing fear or despair to defeat you, because all will work out eventually. At the same time, metamorphosis can also be a negative sign, if it is a transformation of degeneration or corruption. The context of each dream tell you how to interpret it. (See WORM, BUTTERFLY, and CATERPILLAR) Meteorology The weather that appears in the dream may represent the state of your mind and your emotions. A stormy sky, for example, is evidence of disputes and anger; a sunny one, however, denotes happiness; if it rains, your stress may have found an outlet; if it snows, then your emotions are cold.

MISSILE LAUNCHER

(Ballista; Battering ram; Mangonel) Seeing a mangonel or a missile launcher for hurling heavy stones in a dream means calumny, slander and a false accusation of fornication, untruth, or deceit.

A missile launcher in a dream also means victory for the oppressed and destruction for the unjust ones.

If the commander who is operating the missile launcher in the dream is 282 a ruler, then it means that he will write a letter with strong words to the other party.

The stone or the missile itself represents the messenger, or the carrier of such a letter.

If a superior launches a stone against a subject or an employee in a dream, it means that he will send an investigator, a controller or a supervisor of a stern nature. Watching the launch of a mangonel in a dream implies treachery, betrayal and a cause of’losses and sufferings. It also means defamation of the learned ones, or forcing them to downplay the ruler’s injustice, or to give utilitarian and opportune opinions about sacred religious values. Seeing a missile launcher in a dream also may signify corruption, adversities and trials that will befall the target of such missiles.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

Inner harmony, or the song of your soul as it mingles with the Universe. Pythagoras believed that celestial objects sing as they move throughout the sky. When you learn that music, as well as your own keynote within the strain, it naturally engenders actualization and awareness.

The universal language that expresses your emotions to those who will listen. In this case, you are likely revealing hidden feelings to yourself.

Discordant: Being in an ill-advised relationship or situation that isn’t healthy spiritually, physically, or mentally.

Note the selection of music, where it is played, the quality, and represented instruments. Each of these facets will add greater dimension to your dream’s interpretation.

For example, a mournful opera carries far different emotions from celebratory songs, or religious canticles. So if you dreamt of a church song being performed badly, this could reveal that your spiritual life has somehow gotten “out of tune” and needs vour attention.... The Language of Dreams

MUSIC

In most cultures, music is synonymous with creation, because it seems to have accompanied this divine act. In India, in particular, Shiva created the world by dancing and playing the flute. The symbolism of music is very complex. In general terms, you could say that it is either an integrating element or a divisive one. Thus, if the music is melodic or harmonic it expresses placidity of spirit; however, if it’s blaring music, it suggests a situation of chaos; finally if this music is an unsettling or unrecognizable background noise, it reveals anxiety and insecurity. The sound of music could reflect the overall atmosphere of your life. harmonious, discordant, rhythmic, unpredictable, or unduly shrill.

Many melodies express the ambience of worlds beyond the grave, of the unconscious, and of death. Others try to symbolize the harmony of the universe. Music has great power for spiritual representation. Many claim to have heard the songs of angels in dreams. ... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

MUSIC

Music is the most exalted form of expression and universal communication that the human race has. Any dream that features music is connecting both to a deep passion to express as well as the fundamental structure of life itself. Music is mathematical in nature. This is what makes it perfectly universal. Music might be considered the highest form of creative expression available to the human race. This is evidenced by the importance our society places on music and musicians and the powerful influence that music exerts over people. In all cultures throughout history, the presence of music has created the possibility of people being connected through joy. Not only does music have the capacity to bring human beings together in a shared sense of ecstasy, but it has been shown to exert a powerful influence over animals and plant life as well. When music appears in a dream, your first consideration should be to examine areas in your waking life where you are allowing yourself (or not allowing yourself) to connect to spontaneous self- expression.

If you are hearing music in your dream, you may be receiving messages from your unconscious to open yourself to a deeper, more joyful sense of life.

The degree of pleasantness of the music in your dream may represent your current relationship to your intuitive and emotional nature that goes beyond intellectual understanding.

If you are making the music in the dream, you may want to examine areas of your life where creative endeavors are ready to thrive.

If background music plays a pivotal role in your dream, you may want to consider this as an underscoring to subtle emotional issues that may be getting ready to emerge into your conscious awareness. In the same way that music deepens the emotional meaning in a film, music may serve to highlight the importance of a dream.

If this seems to be the case, remember the manipulative nature of this use of music’s power. You may want to examine ways in which your emotions may be influencing your view of some area of your life in ways that may not be authentic. This could show up in the form of drama in a current situation that might be more effectively dealt with using a more pragmatic and less emotional approach.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

MUSIC / MUSICAL INSTRUMENT

Hearing music in your dreams generally has positive connotations. Music is a healing balm to the soul, and as you are listening to it in your dream, you may be connected to the wonderful, creative spirit or flow of life, suggesting a degree of inner harmony and emotional expression. Music in waking life is one of the most powerful and expressive mediums available and through music it is possible to convey feelings that are impossible to put into words. It is much the same in your dreams, where a beautiful melody can express your sense of feeling sweet, peaceful and harmonious, whereas a clash of harsh notes may reflect emotional discord or feeling out of tune with the people in your life.

The type of music that features in your dreams may have significance, especially if it was music you do not usually listen to in waking life. For example, if you love classical music but dreamt of a pop song, your unconscious may have retrieved the song from your memory because it portrays perfectly how you are feeling at present.

If you dreamed of classical music but are a modern music fan, this may be a reference to old-fashioned tastes and values with which you feel in tune. The dream may also be urging you to listen a little more to the advice of older people.

If you dreamed of choosing a song on a juke box, the song you chose may express how you are currently feeling. Dream drum rolls may be urging you to pay attention to someone or keep in step and conform to others in waking life.

According to Freud, a martial or rhythmical drum beat could suggest intercourse but another interpretation suggests that it could symbolize the voice of your unconscious or unspoken feelings that arise from the depths of your inner self.

If you were listening passively to music in your dream, this may be referring to your emotional reaction to a waking situation, but if you were actively making music, humming along or tapping the rhythm, this may be about your emotional involvement with someone or something. Dreams about music may also be urging you to explore your perhaps neglected potential for personal creativity, of which music is a common symbol.

If you were playing an instrument, the choice of instrument will also be significant.

If you were playing drums, are you trying to drum up support for something or someone, or did the dream suggest that something needs to be drummed into your head? If you clashed a pair of cymbals, this might suggest a clash of conflicting opinions, whilst blowing a trumpet may suggest bragging or your feelings of triumph. The black and white symbolism of piano keys could indicate the need to see things clearly, in black and white, or to harmonize extreme opinions. Don’t forget the sexual symbolism of musical instruments too. Freudians would, for example, regard a flute as a phallic symbol and the curved bodies of violins or guitars as a feminine symbol. Finally, dreams of playing instruments may simply be encouraging you to nurture a real-life talent for music. See also ARTS AND CRAFTS.... The Element Encyclopedia

Good represented evil, joy represented sadness, a man represented a woman, and so on. This idea is worth considering if the other approaches to vour dream have yielded little or no meaning.

To see two opposite items in a dream can reflect improved balance between different facets of the psyche. Alternatively, this can represent a dichotomy that causes inner turmoil over two equally important goals or ideals.

(see Color)

An optimistic hue, denoting improved self-love, high energy, and a clear emotional state.

Bright, fiery oranges are the color of aggression. This hue needs gentle control so that angry outbursts don’t occur.

Also the color of autumn, thereby denoting a harvest of characteristics that you have sown and tended with care.... The Language of Dreams

OPPOSITES

Any pair of opposites in a dream - right and left, new and old, man and woman, light and darkness - may represent opposite forces or qualities of the psyche: conscious and unconscious, masculine and feminine elements, extrovert and introvert tendencies, etc. Jung said that at the bottom of every neurosis there was an unsolved problem of opposites, which can be solved only by choosing both of the opposites, and integrating and harmonizing them. Man and woman are opposites, but for that very reason yearn for union. This applies equally to your psychic opposites. Your conscious ego should not interfere with this mutual attraction of opposites.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

PARALYSIS

Dreaming that you or someone else is paralyzed could be very frightening. Depending on the details of your dream and your current situation in life, there are several different, but equally reasonable interpretations.

The fear that paralyzes you in the dream may be symbolic of the fear that you are experiencing in daily life. You may feel somewhat unable to change a current situation which may manifest itself in your dream in a form of paralysis. In addition, this dream may be cautioning you to stay still and do nothing for now in regard to a real-life situation that is on your mind and may be problematic for you. In the dream you may be “frozen with fear” and it is up to you decipher what that fear is and what it represents.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

PARALYSIS

Example: ‘It starts as a dream, but I gradually become aware that I cannot move.

The harder I try to move the worse it gets and I become very fnghtened. I can neither move nor wake myself up. Sometimes I feel as if I am leaving my body. But to deal with the fear I have learnt—it’s a recur­ring thing—to stop struggling, knowing that I will eventually wake’ (Susan Y). This is a common experience which may be due to the fact the body is paralysed during periods of the dream process; all brain signals to the voluntary muscles are inhibited. This is not sensed as a problem if we are uncon­sciously involved in a dream.

If enough self awareness arises in the dream state, then awareness of the inability to move may occur, along with the anxiety this can arouse. Another factor is illustrated by what Susan says—the harder she tries to move the worse it gets. Our unconscious is very open to suggestion.

If this were not so we would lack necessary sur­vival responses. In a dimly lit situation we may mistake a shape for a lurking figure. Our body reactions, such as heart­beat, react to the mistake as if it is real, until we gain fresh information. Whatever we feel to be real becomes a fact as far as our body reactions are concerned.

The fear that one cannot move becomes a fact because we believe it. When Susan re­laxes, and thereby drops the fear of paralysis, she can be free of it. This applies to anything we feel is true—we create it as an internal reality. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

One of the most terrifying and anxiety forms of nightmare is the one that involves some kind of paralysis where you cannot move. Dreams of being paralyzed are in fact a part of REM sleep, during which the majority of us are unable to move. A person tossing and turning in their sleep is not having a nightmare. The simplest interpretation of a dream in which you are paralyzed is that you are unable to move forward and feel pinned down or paralyzed in some aspect of your life. The dream may also be an expression of some kind of conflict; you may be unable to choose between two possible courses of action or be caught in a situation that restricts you....

But as I watched it broke away and left me’ (John W). John had experienced a hean attack, and the dark shape was an embodiment of his fears about his hean, sucking his energy and well-being. In relaxing he was able to let go of these feelings. Because the dream process shows such internal processes in imagery, the fears are shown as an incubus or dark parasite, which falls away. ...

PHYSICIAN

(Mother) A physician in a dream represents a wise man, or a religious doctor.

A physician in a dream also represents a scholar, and a scholar in a dream represents a physician. Ifone sees a physician examining him in a dream, it means an improvement in his health condition. Ifone sees a religious scholar advising him in a dream, it means that hypocrisy and doubt will be dispelled from his heart.

A physician in a dream also represents one’s mother, or he could be an opponent, or an adversary.

The death of one’s physician in a dream means the death of one’s mother.

If a sick person sees a physician visiting him in a dream, it means that he will recover from his illness.

If a physician visits a healthy person in a dream and write a prescription for him, it means that he will fall sick. Seeing or visiting a physician in a dream means exposing one’s secrets, for a physician works to extract the patient’s illness just like a snake charmer who brings a snake out of its hiding.

A physician in a dream also represents a garbage collector, a street cleaner, a spy, a backbiter, or a fighter who sometime wins and sometime loses.

To see oneself as a physician in a dream means attaining a high ranking position, or becoming a policeman, or a commander who controls people’s livelihood.

A physician in a dream also represents someone who provides spiritual as well as practical guidance, a social reformer, a judge, a preacher, a teacher, a tanner, or a copper.

If one sees ajust and a well known judge as a physician in a dream, it means that his compassion and welfare will encompass everyone in that locality. Ifone sees a known physician as a judge or a wise man in a dream, it means that one will become renowned, his status will rise and he will become a celebrated pioneer in his field. Ifhe is not known to be a righteous physician, then it means that one will be visited with adversities, or it could mean that someone will die from malpractice, or it could mean persevering with daring attempts do increase one’s business at the expense of people’s lives. Ifone sees a physician selling coffins or folded shrouds in a dream, one should be suspicious of him in wakefulness even if people are fascinated by his charm. Ifone sees a physician working as a tanner in a dream, it shows the physicians ingenuity, knowledge of his trade and the many people who recover from their illness at his hand.

The exception to that is when the tan is spoiled, or if it has a stench, or if it is ineffective in the dream, then it means that such a physician is a crafty swagger.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

Speaking to a physician: a good sign that the illness can be cured. But no matter what, do pay more attention to your health.

Depth Psychology: If the physician is an old man: you are unable to cope with something and are searching for advice or for help.

POSITION

1- When a particular position is highlighted in a dream it usually signifies our moral standpoint, or our position in life. It can also give an indication of how we arc handling situations in our lives.

For instance, something in the wrong position means we are going about things in the wrong way.

2- Our spirit, intellect, ideals and consciences are being brought to our attention when we dream of anything higher or above us. This applies also when dreaming of the upper part of anything (of a building or body, for example). Our altruism may be being brought into question. Anything underneath, below, or downstairs signifies the anarchic or immoral side of our personalities.

The sexual impulses can also be characterised in this way. Something appearing upside down emphasises the potential for chaos and difficulty.

The ‘ups and downs’ of situations in life can be experienced in dreams as the actual movement of one’s position, ‘fhe personality has a need to balance the heights and depths of its experience, and if this docs not happen a warning will usually appear in dream form. Back/Front Rejection and acceptance can be shown in a dream as seeing the back and front of something. Backward/ Forward Having the attention drawn to a backward and/or forward movement usually indicaes the potential to adopt a regressive bae kward-looki ng tendency. There is a need to retire into the past, rather than tackling lears and moving ahead. Centre falso see Shapes) To be conscious of the centre of any aspect of a dream is to be aware of a goal or objective, or perhaps even of the dreamer’s real Self. There is a need to be the centre of attention whatever the circumstances. Far/Near In dreams, space and time can become confused.

Dreaming of something which is far awav, may indicate that it is far away in time. This may be future or past, depending on the dream.

A long way in front would be future, a long way behind would be past. Near or close would mean recently, or in the immediate.

Horizontal This usually symbolises the material world. Left 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 which we try to suppress.

It is more to do with instinctive behaviour, what feels good inside and with personal behaviour without attention to moral codes.

It 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. Feelings of being left behind suggest a sense of inadequacy, of disintegration and of having to leave the past behind. Indecision over left or right suggests an inability to decide whether to rely on drive or instinct.

Low In dreams, feeling ‘low’ can suggest a sense of inferiority or humility. Often we will give way to submissive behaviour, and put ourselves in a lower position than others. Occasionally to be below something or someone can indicate a need to explore the underside or negativity of a relationship or situation. Opposite Anything in a dream which is opposite the dreamer may suggest some difficulty in reconciling two paradoxes (Good/bad. male/female, up/down, etc.). This may or may not suggest conflict. One thing deliberately put opposite another There is a deliberate attempt to introduce discord. Changing the position from opposite Differences maybe adjusted.

Right/Left The conflict between right and left is usually between logic and intuition. Right The right side represents the more dominant logical side.

It is the consciously expressed, confident side which perceives the exterior world in perhaps a more objective sense.

It is to do with ‘lightness’ that is, correctness and moral and social behaviour. Anything observed on the right side in dreams is usually significant as the dreamer progresses. Any pain experienced on the right side can also be interpreted in terms of drive. It also expresses the more masculine attributes. Movement to the right indicates that something is coming into conscious awareness. Straight Straight suggests a direct approach, the shortest way between two objects or places. Top To be at the top is to have succeeded in our endeavours.

To be on top is to have assumed control. Trying to reach the top suggests more effort is needed. Under/underneath Being underneath something suggests either taking shelter or submitting to someone else’s handling of us. It may also represent the part of us that we hide, or the part that is less capable.

Up, upper We have the capability of achieving a degree of supremacy. We are capable of getting the ‘upper hand’ in particular situations. We can move away from the mundane, ordinary- everyday world.

Vertical The vertical in dreams tends to represent the spiritual realm.

3- The points of the compass can be read spiritually.

The North signifies the Unknown, and hcnce sometimes darkness.

It is spirituality within the world.

The East traditionally suggests birth and mystic religions. It also represents becoming ‘conscious’.

The South is representative of earthly passion and sensuality.

The West can symbolise death, but more properly the state after death when there is increased spiritual awareness. Traditionally, it can also represent the more logical side of our natures.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

POSITIVE ACTIVITY

If your dreaming mind depicted you engaged in positive activities such as beginning a new health regime or hobby you love, losing weight, cutting out smoking and alcohol, spring cleaning, sorting out your wardrobe, volunteering for charity work, washing your car, mowing the lawn, picking up litter, holding a door open for the person behind you, the message may be that you need to undertake similar action in your waking life.

If you cannot draw a parallel between your dream and your waking life, ask yourself which positive actions you need to take in your life. Has your general outlook on life become cynical and jaded; is it time to freshen your attitudes up in some way?... The Element Encyclopedia

POSITIVE EMOTIONS

Your dreams can provide you with deep and powerful insights into your moods, and can be used to help you manage feelings of joy as well as sadness.

Perhaps you have woken up from a dream with feelings of euphoria or unexplained happiness, or found yourself laughing without knowing why. Every now and again your dreaming mind may give you an emotional and psychological boost by creating images in which you feel deeply secure, happy and loved. It may also conjure up images of freedom, adventure, success and excitement to spur you on. Dreams that leave you with such lingering feelings of joy and exhilaration are less common than those that leave you with feelings of dread and uncertainty. This may be because there are always constant challenges and responsibilities to face in the real world and your dreams tend to reflect your anxieties about meeting these challenges. Even though they are relatively rare, feelings of immense happiness in dreams are just as important to understand as feelings of sadness according to Jung and most other dream analysts. Joyful, uplifting dreams allow you to focus on the real-life experiences and situations that evoked them, as well as the way you feel about yourself and your life.

PREMENSTRUAL TENSION

Dr Ernest Hartmann carried out studies in connection with people who have stable sleep pat­terns. His aim was to define whether waking events influ­enced people’s need for sleep.

For instance, a loss of boy­friend or stress caused many young women to have an increased need for sleep. Some people who had undergone successful psychotherapy for their emotional difficulties, and some meditators, found their sleep need was decreased.

Wanting to know more about why these situations changed sleep need, Hartmann went on to study dream sleep in a group of women who suffered premenstrual tension (PMT). This group were prone to depression and irritability during PMT—records show there is an unusually high rate of mur­der, suicide and admission to psychiatric hospitals during this time. Although Hartmann found this group needed a little more sleep time than a control group, the main feature of change was their increased need for dreaming. Their length of time spent in dreaming increased in relationship to their de­pression.

The conclusion reached was that one of the func­tions of dreaming is to help deal with difficult states of emo­tion or anxiety. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

PROCESSION

1- A procession means an orderly approach and often makes a statement of intent. In a dream, to see a line of people who all appear to have a similar goal or set of beliefs in mind, indicates that it is the intention behind the group which is important. Often a procession is hierarchical, with the most important people either first or last. This could be important in a dream in enabling us to adopt priorities for ourselves.

2- A procession is often a way of marking a special occasion with pageantry and dignity. In dreams such an image can often represent the dreamer’s need to have his own successes and abilities recognised.

To be taking part in a procession is acknowledging our need to belong to a like-minded group.

To be watching a procession is to appreciate other people’s single-mindedness.

For example, an astronaut is adventurous and highly trained, bartenders are thought to be good listeners, and secretaries exhibit strong organizational skills. So, dreaming of all three of these individuals together might indicate the need to hone your personal listening skills for greater effectiveness.

To dream about radiation, or to see others become sick from radiation in your dream, suggests that you need to get rid of something in your life that is causing you much sickness, stress or negativity. This dream may also signal a part of yourself that needs to be healed, either physically or mentally. Perhaps you are indulging in too much self-pity, and need to stop feeling sorry for yourself. However, if you dreamed that you became sick from radiation, this is a warning that you are introducing something into your life that is harmful to your well-being. This may be feelings of bitterness, jealousy or other bad feelings that are consuming you. Or, it could symbolize a person you have started to spend time with, who is very bad for you....

RADIO / TELEVISION

A television may represent your mind with its stream of thoughts, and a radio your inner voice with its communications. The programs you watch and listen to are intimate and objective representations of what is going on in your mind, so pay particular attention to what is on your dream television or radio.

If you dreamed of adjusting a radio dial or television remote control to find a particular station or channel, perhaps your dreaming mind portrayed you as trying to tune into your intuition. A dream in which you channel surf may suggest your waking restlessness or boredom. As well as helping us stay abreast of current events, radios and televisions also offer mental stimulation and DVDs and VCRs allow us to record anything we want at a time that suits us.

If you dreamed of listening to a radio broadcast, TV program or trying to record a specific program, always try to recall its subject matter.

If it was a faithful replica of a something you saw and heard on television or radio last night, your dreaming mind is simply playing out the images again in your sleep or perhaps reproving you for watching rather than living life.

If it was a variation of the program’s theme or you felt deeply involved with the program (which may or may not have been an exact rerun of the original), the chances are that it reveals a facet of your waking life, or news from within yourself. Did you identify with one of the characters, or with a specific situation or topic in the show, because you have found yourself in a similar state in the past or fear that you will in the future? Alternatively, if you dream about radio or television program but do not feel that involved in the action, your unconscious could be providing you with light relief from waking anxiety.

If you see yourself on TV, your unconscious may be attempting to communicate emotions and ideas that you feel unable to express in waking life. The image may also arise from a desire for attention or recognition from the people in your life.

If you received static instead of a clear signal, this suggests an inability to make contact with your innermost thoughts. The image would be intensified if you watched a DVD recording of a program, as this indicates memories that are recorded or deeply embedded in your unconscious.

The purpose of TV or radio programs such as talk shows, soap operas or movies—is to entertain, enlighten and divert us from our everyday lives. Your unconscious may have used the plot or situation from an entertainment show of this kind and used it as a vehicle to replay an event in your past or to act out a current concern. Modern dream superstition suggests that if you enjoy dreaming about watching television, you will be successful in life; but if you are bored or upset by what you see, you will be led astray as your lack of concentration will mean you are unable to achieve success....

RIGHT (AS IN SIDE, TURN, ETC.)

Vision: The right side—things placed on the right—always represents male energies.

A woman dreaming she has a ring on her right hand means she is ready to make a lasting commitment.

The right side is the good and positive side; turning to the right, making a right-hand turn means the right path has been chosen.

Depth Psychology: Right is the symbol of conscious intentions, actions, energies, creativity, and ambition. Do you feel you have the “right” to something, are right about something, are standing on the “right side”? See Left.... Dreamers Dictionary

SEEING, SAW, SIGHT

This is one of the major aspects of dreaming. Unless we are born blind, virtually every dream shows us looking at, seeing or viewing the events, objects, environment and people of the dream. In a word count from a sample of 1,000 dreams, the words see, saw, look, looking occurred 1,077 times. This is the highest occurrence of any words in the sample. Next were feel, feelings, felt with a score of 855, and house, houses with 412.

This suggests that dreams are almost entirely about giving attention to, being aware of, being confronted by, considering or realising some aspect of the enormously wide range of experience which human consciousness meets. Therefore, whatever appears in the dream shows we are giving some thought to, feeling or confronting what is depicted. During each day we meet, in sensory impressions, in memory, in emotion, in thought, a huge variety of things.

It is therefore of great interest what comparatively few subjects our spontane­ous dream response chooses to give attention to out of all the range. It seems likely these chosen areas are important to us.

Looking at something implies our attitudes or response to what is seen. Being looked at by someone else in the dream suggests seeing oneself from a viewpoint which is not our norm. By actually attempting to stand in the role of the other person, as described in dream processing, we can become conscious of this different viewpoint. By standing in our own role in the dream, and actually taking time to consider what it is we are ‘seeing, and the impressions involved, we can ‘see’ or become aware of what the dream is getting us to look at regarding ourself. Idioms: from the look of things; look after, look askance at; look at; look before you leap; look blue, look down on; look for, look forward to; look into; look out, look over something; look small; look the other way; look up to; look for a fight; not like the look of; as far as I can see; as I see it; do you see what I mean; I’ll see about that; I see, see over something; overseer; see eye to eye; see life; see red; see which way the wind blows; catch sight of; get out of my sight, in sight of; lose sight of; out of sight, out of mind, second sight; at first sight.

SIBLING

It is very common for us to dream about all different types of people. Siblings are a fantastic source of dream material. Our siblings are important to us emotionally and psychologically. We are bound to them on some level throughout our lives; thus, they will appear in our dreams in may different forms. We learn important lessons about ourselves through our brothers and sisters. They are a reflection on us, and we can not escape their presence and their love, hate or any other emotion .

If you have many unresolved issues with your siblings, it is likely that they will frequently appear in your dreams. See also: People... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Read More...

The Bedside Dream Dictionary

SIBLING

Siblings symbolize very clear tendencies in your personality. Dreams in which siblings appear—although the dreamer is an only child—foretell the need to integrate certain qualities that the dreamer lacks and are necessary for communication with others, into their deep Self. Consequently, this dream is trying to say that you want to find someone to share experiences with. Additionally, you must keep in mind that traits or defects we don’t like to accept in ourselves tend to be projected on siblings. In this case, a correct interpretation can be very helpful to know yourself better.

Dreaming of a sibling may represent that you’ve found a guide to bring you to your deepest Self. So, you can more easily resolve the problem that is worrying you. The oneiric images of the sibling is, for some superstitions, a sign of betrayal and hypocrisy.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Read More...

The Big Dictionary of Dreams

SIBLING RIVALRY

The appearance of siblings in your dream may be a direct representation of them or it may actually stand for something else in your life. Some dream analysts believe that all dream characters represent aspects of yourself. So when interpreting dreams that feature images of your siblings, try to bear in mind these different layers of potential meaning. A dream in which your brother or sister is seen in a negative light may denote unresolved childhood feelings towards that sibling in waking life. According to Jung, dreams of a sibling often recall childhood competition for our parent’s love and the dream death of a sibling may show how intense this rivalry is. However, as even Freud suggested, this rivalry may be just a memory and may not relate to your waking relationship with your brother or sister. Dreams in which you are arguing or fighting with your sibling suggest feelings of doubt and insecurity, perhaps as to whether you were loved enough within your family.

Bear in mind that in dreams, siblings can also represent the shadow. This is because it is easier to project the negative or hidden side of our personality onto another member of the family than it is onto a nonrelative, and siblings tend to be the closest to you in age and experience. Your dreams may be an attempt by your unconscious to resolve this projection before it creates problems in waking life. When dreams of the opposite sex sibling occur, this may also be an expression of your anima or animus archetype. It could represent the tension—or union—of opposites in some way; your dreaming mind may be trying to create harmony and balance in your life by pointing to some aspect of yourself. For example, if your dream sister was incredibly rude, the dream may be highlighting your own feelings of guilt about being rude to some one.

Alternatively, such a dream may be urging you to be more assertive in waking life. The same would apply if you dream of siblings or step-siblings but don’t have any brother or sisters in waking life, or if your sibling behaves completely out of character in the dream.

If your dream casts someone you know as your brother or sister, this may be because you have brotherly or sisterly feelings for them, with all the associations of rivalry and platonic love that such a relationship implies.... The Element Encyclopedia

Dreamers Dictionary

SIBLINGS

Dreams • It is important that you identify what kind of relationship you have with your sister or brother.

• When you think of your sister or brother, what is the first thing that comes to your mind to describe them? What about them stands out the most? • Perhaps your sister is willful. She could speak of your will. Maybe she is insecure, in which case she would speak of insecurity.

• Perhaps your brother is highly intellectual, then he would likely speak of your intellect. Maybe your brother was the kind of person that always protected you. In this case he could speak of the Holy Spirit in your dreams.

Visions Positive:

When I see someone’s sibling during ministry, the Lord usually wants to address an issue. Often the Lord indicates that the person needs to break links with their sibling. Other times inner healing needs to take place.

• The Lord will give you an inner knowing or impression to go along with the vision. So remain sensitive to the spirit and you will be able to understand exactly what the Lord wants you to do with the revelation He gave you.

• Speaking of the Family of Christ • Matthew 12:50 For whoever shall do the will of my Father who is in heaven, that person is my brother, and sister, and mother.

SIBLINGS

All people in dreams relate to some aspect of your own personality.

If you dream of your actual brothers or sisters from your life, the character aspects that they represent as part of your psyche should be investigated in the same manner as those of any person known to you who appears in a dream. However, because of the powerful dynamic of family systems, the relationships between siblings will connect to various roles that the members of the group often find themselves locked into. When a sibling appears in a dream, there is a great deal of complexity to explore, from your current relationship to your childhood history and even how parenting styles affected each family member. With careful and unbiased investigation, a sibling dream can offer a penetrating snapshot of where you are in your development as an individual, separate from the limitations of your personal history....

SICKNESS AND HEALTH

Unless you are actually ill or sick, dreams in which your general health and well-being are highlighted may be commenting not just on your physical state, but on your psychological or emotional condition as well.

Such dreams can pinpoint areas of potential conflict and help you achieve a more balanced approach.

If any part of the body is injured or painful in a dream, this may be well worth following up, since illness has been diagnosed in this way before. Bear in mind that dreams usually use body parts and illnesses as symbols for other areas of your life. So try to make a link between your dream ailment and your waking life.

Sigmund Freud pioneered the use of dreams in psychological healing and most dream analysts today agree that in dreams, painful memories and feelings can surface disguised as physical illnesses or weaknesses. Sometimes such dreams foretell real illness if you don’t take better care of yourself, but most of the time they represent the way you approach life. Perhaps you feel you can’t cope with a situation, and illness is the easy way out. Dreams of this sort suggest that you are in conflict with some aspect of your personality and therefore not putting yourself in touch with a force that can give you health in both body and mind. Part of you isn’t well and needs to be cared for. You need to heal these inner troubles and find psychological harmony.... The Element Encyclopedia

Vision: Looking at a sieve: you have actcd foolishly and the result will be very unpleasant. Make sure that you keep an eye on things.

If you are putting something through a sieve: something you want to do is turning out to be hopeless, and if you proceed you will only be wasting your energy. Using a sieve: somebody is asking you to account for your actions.

Depth Psychology: This is the time to “sift” through things and discard what is useless.

The dream is an admonition to be more critical, especially about what you do, and change your materialistic view of the world.... Dreamers Dictionary

SIGHT

Dreams are an overwhelmingly visual experience and Freud generally treated dream images as signs. Signs are images that point to something else. Freud believed the unconscious was purposely hiding the meaning of the images from our conscious minds. He believed that dreams contained a secret, hidden key and that once this key was slipped into the lock keeping a dream’s meaning from you, almost everything could be seen to have a connection with sex, death, taboo and incest. Jung, on the other hand, treated dream images as symbols intent on bringing healing to the psyche. Images, when treated as symbols, are images which have meaning in and of themselves. He believed the unconscious was purposely trying to speak to us, in order to bring forth a sense of wholeness and added meaning to our lives. For Jung, our nightly dreams were not trying to hide anything from us but trying to communicate with us.

Many dream analysts today regard the images we ’see’ in dreams as a symbolic reflection of aspects of the dreamer’s life, in particular their attitudes and responses. By taking time to consider what it is that you are ’seeing’ in your dream and the impressions involved, you can ’see’ or become aware of what the dream is getting you to look at regarding yourself or your life. The ’view’ you have in a dream, the environment you see, reflects how you see your life and yourself at the time of the dream. It shows how limited or wide your ’vision’ is. Being looked at in a dream suggests seeing yourself from their point of view or from a point of view that is not your own.

If you have a dream in which you are searching for something, this typically indicates an attempt to find something in waking life; perhaps a past way of life, a person from the past, an answer to a problem or a sense of identity; it may also indicate a feeling of having lost something valuable, such as your youth, energy or motivation.

If you are searching for someone in your dream, you may be conscious of your loneliness and if you are searching for something but do not know what it is, this could represent an unfulfilled need or a spiritual hunger.

If a searchlight appears, this indicates concentration and focused attention. It can also indicate insight into an important matter in your waking life.

Said to be the windows on the soul, the eyes are instruments of unconscious communication as well as vision.

If you found yourself gazing into someone’s eyes in your dream, your unconscious may have been mirroring your sense of seeing eye to eye with someone in your waking life. But if you find you cannot meet someone’s eye in your dream, you may be feeling guilty about something you have said or done.

If the color of someone’s eyes caught your own eye in your dream, pay attention to the symbolism by referring to the chapter on COLORS; if you noticed a squint in your dream, could the message have been that you are looking at things in a cockeyed way? If your eyes were shut or you noticed you were blind in your dream, your unconscious may have been alerting you to your tendency to close or shut your eyes to the truth in waking life. And if you found yourself wearing spectacles or contact lenses in your dream, do you need to focus on something or someone more closely in waking life, or do you wish that others would respect your intelligence more? See also Eye entry in BODY.

Perception of color is an intensely personal experience. We only have to look at our clothes and interior decoration to see how color plays a part in our lives, whether through understatement or overstatement. Color is also a form of communication and mood; for example, red means stop and black is often associated with loss in Western society. Think about how you would describe a color to someone who is blind. What feelings and thoughts arise when you think of red, blue or yellow, for example? If a color particularly stands out in your dream ’view’ (you are wearing, for example, a color you never usually wear) take a look at the relevant entry in COLORS for some clues to its meaning; as with all things in dreams, look for the associations that make sense to you.

SIGMUND FREUD ON DREAMS

Sigmund Freud actually called dreams the “royal road to the unconscious,” That statement will probably remain true in psychology forever. Freud’s classic text, The Interpretation of Dreams, contains some of his finest work.

Freud believed every dream is a wish fulfillment, and he kept this theory to the end, even though he gave up his initial idea that all dreams have a sexual content.

For Freud, the concept of wish fulfillment didn’t necessarily imply that a pleasure was sought, because a person could just as well have a wish to be punished. Nevertheless, this idea of a “secret” wish being masked by a dream remains central to classical Freudian psychoanalysis.

Freud said, “Dreams are not comparable to the spontaneous sounds made by a musical instrument struck rather by some external force than by the hand of a performer; they are not meaningless, not absurd, they do not imply that one portion of our stockpile of ideas sleeps while another begins to awaken. They are a completely valid psychological phenomenon, specifically the fulfillment of wishes; they can be classified in the continuity of comprehensible waking mental states; they are constructed through highly complicated intellectual activity.”

It was not until Freud noticed how allowing his patients to freely associate ideas with whatever came to mind, that he really explored spontaneous abreaction. Freud himself suffered bouts of deep anxiety, and it was partly this that led him to explore the connection between association of ideas and dreams. In 1897 he wrote to his friend Wilhelm Fliess:

‘No matter what I start with, I always find myself back again with the neuroses and the psychical apparatus. Inside me there is a seething ferment, and I am only waiting for the next surge forward. I have felt impelled to start writing about dreams, with which I feel on firm ground.’

This move toward dreams may have come about because in allowing his patients freedom to talk and explore the associations that arose - free association - Freud noticed that patients would often find a connection between the direction of their associations and a dream they had experienced. The more he allowed his patients to go in their own direction, the more frequently they mentioned their dreams. Also, talking about the dream often enabled the patient to discover a new and productive chain of associations and memories.

Freud began to take note of his own dreams and explore the associations they aroused. In doing so he was the first person to consciously and consistently explore a dream into its depths through uncovering and following obvious and hidden associations and emotions connected with the dream imagery and drama.

Obviously previous dream researchers had noticed how the dream image associated with personal concerns, but Freud broke through into seeing the connection with sexual feelings, with early childhood trauma, and with the subtleties of the human psyche. He did this to deal with his own neurosis, and he says of this period, ‘I have been through some kind of neurotic experience, with odd states of mind not intelligible to consciousness, cloudy thoughts and veiled doubts, with barely here and there a ray of light.’

Using dreams for his self analysis, Freud discovered that previously unremembered details from his childhood were recaptured along with feelings and states of mind which he had never met before.

He wrote of this period, “Some sad secrets of life are being traced back to their first roots; the humble origins of much pride and precedence are being laid bare. I am now experiencing myself all the things that, as a third party, Ihave witnessed going on in my patients, days when I slink about depressed because I have understood nothing of the day’s dreams, fantasies, or mood.”

Without this powerful and personal experience of working with his dreams, meeting emotions and fantasies welling up from the unconscious, Freud would not have so passionately believed in his theories regarding dreams and the unconscious.

Of course, like much of Freud’s theories, he related dreams to sex. One of his basic views of dreams was that the purpose of dreams is to allow us to satisfy in fantasies the instinctual urges that society judges unacceptable such as sexual practices. This was partly the reason for the enormous opposition and criticism that he met.

During the period of his early life, only men were believed to have powerful sexual urges. When Freud showed that repressed but obvious sexual desires were equally at work in women this created a social uproar. Perhaps his second finding in regard to sexuality surprised even him. During his analysis of women patients, sexual advance or assault by the woman’s father was often revealed.

Freud struggled with this, wondering whether the assault was memory of an actual event, or a psychic reproduction of it. He eventually came to the conclusion that hysterical and neurotic behavior was often due to the trauma caused by an early sexual assault by the parent. Where there was not evidence of physical assault, then he saw the neurosis as due to sexual conflict or a trauma caused by some other event. This conflict was often manifested through dreams. This led to Freud being rejected by university colleagues, fellow doctors, and even by patients.

Another expert in the field of dreams and dream interpretation was Carl Jung.... Dreampedia

SIGNAGE

(see Billboard, Pictograph)

Read any sign that appears in your dream, be it a highway marker, a street sign, an advertisement, or whatever.

The messages thereon will often provide clues to the deeper meaning of your dream, if not unlock its meaning for you completely.

Traffic signs: On the dream plane, each traffic sign has some synonymous meaning to what it signifies to a car’s driver.

For example, stop signs mean just that—stop whatever you’re doing and look all around for signs of danger or trouble.

A yield sign indicates that you’re probably being too rigid and need to learn the value of flexibility. Signs for roadwork usually reveal that the path ahead may be a little bumpy or slower moving than you might like, so prepare to be patient. One that

reads “no shoulder” shows that you overexposed yourself in some situation, and need to back off a bit for your own good.

Exit sign: We look for exits when we want to find the way out of a building. From what or whom are you trying to withdraw?

Street signs: If these signs are those that you pass regularly in your travels, consider this a circumstantial dream that needs no further explanation. On the other hand, street names can have very symbolic meanings.

For example, one called “Normal Avenue” might reveal thoughts about your own sense of normalcy, and how you fit in with your peer group.

Written advertisements can show up in numerous places in your dream, from being part of a newspaper to appearing on a supermarket wall.

The meaning for each is interpreted similarly to street signs, using the product name or use as the key.

For example, a vitamin ad might be construed as an admonition to take better care with your health, whereas an ad for a cruise ship might reveal a personal desire to take a vacation, or get more in tune with the water element.... The Language of Dreams
