MOST UNPLEASANT DREAM

If the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu-Alayhi-wasallam) is seen as physically deformed or sick or dead then this is a very unpleasant dream.

THE TONGUE

It symbolises his spokesperson and messenger. At other times it symbolises the soundness of his argument. Thus, if he sees his tongue as cut or short, it suggest that his argument regarding a certain dispute is weak. And if there is no such dispute, it symbolises his steadfastness on Deen. As opposed to the above, if he sees his tongue as elongated, it suggest that his argument is sound enough to make him gain victory over his opposition. And if there is no such dispute, it alludes to his habit of indulging in idle talk as well as his shamelessness..

A woman tongue seen as shortened or cut is always regarded as favourable.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

DWARF

At times people will see dwarfs, midgets, or very small people in their dreams. These images seem to represent, or allude to, the childlike creative powers in the unconscious. You can think of the dwarf as a “worker” in your unconscious. He could represent some childlike condition which has the potential and power to influence your life. Consider the details and the emotional tone in the dream and make an attempt to connect it to a situation in your daily life.

The dwarf suggests possibilities for learning and brings to the conscious mind messages from the unconscious.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

STEALING

People steal for two reasons.

If they are poor and feel like they have no other alternative or if they are greedy and do not want to put the time and the effort into earning what they need.

(The needs could be emotional as well as material.) Stealing alludes to moral questions in the dream’s psyche. Consider all of the details of your dream and try to understand why the stealing is taking place. Are people taking from you without your permission, or are you trying to reap the benefits of that which you did not earn? The message from the unconscious may be that of self-evaluation, neediness, and morality.

The understanding of this dream may bring you closer to understanding your deeper needs which will ultimately lead to greater happiness.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

BIRDS

Example: ‘I was standing outside the house of my teens, with my mother. She had a very young bird on a long ribbon and the bird was flying very high in the sky’ (Pauline).

The life cycle of a bird has so many similarities with impor­tant human stages of maturity we frequently use it to represent oneself, as in the example. Pauline uses the bird to depict her own urge to be independent of her mother’s influence, opin­ions, likes, dislikes and decisions. Later in the dream her mother hands Pauline the ribbon to hold, suggesting an offer of independence. As soon as she lets go of the ribbon, a huge black bird attacks the ribboned one.

The ribbons are a refer­ence to Pauline’s own girlhood. When she lets go of her girl­hood, moving towards independent womanhood, she feels threatened by the internalised negative side of her mother, such as her possessiveness—the black bird. Internalised means all the standards, self controls she learned from her life with her mother, which she now carries within her even if absent from her mother.

General: Imagination; intuition, the mind; thoughts, our spiritual longings; expanded awareness—in this form, per­haps a large bird which can fly high. Because wider—or spiri­tual—awareness means looking beyond the usual boundaries of what we see, this may be painful. Hatching from the egg; our birth and infancy.

The nest: home; family environment; security, even the womb. Leaving the nest: gaining indepen­dence. Making a nest: home building; parental urges. Flying: rising above something; independence; freedom; self expres­sion.

Freud said the bird represents the male phallus, and flying means the sexual act. Many languages use the word bird’ to mean woman. In Italy it alludes to penis.

The bird is also used to denote the sense of death and survival. Bluebird: especially represents the spint or soul after death. Baby bird: our own childhood, as in the following example.

The old lady is once more reference to the mother, to whom the bird is first con­nected before moving on to the difficulty of independence. Example: An old lady made room for me to sit at the end of one of the three seats of a bus. As we drove away a very large chicken-size baby bird flew in. It had short stubby wings and yellow down, but flew expenly. I believe it first landed on the lady and chirped squeakily. But in its squeaks it actually spoke, saying it had lost its mother. It sounded as if it were crying (Andrew). Idioms: charm the birds from the trees; a bird told me; bird has flown; bird in the hand, bird of ill omen; free as a bird, odd bird. ...

CHILDHOOD RECOLLECTIONS

(1) Many dreams repeat or allude to childhood experiences and impressions. Nearly all such dreams have a therapeutic purpose, giving us a clearer view of ourselves, perhaps showing us some attitude or pattern of behaviour that has been with us since childhood, and perhaps even showing us the original cause of it.

Unfulfilled instinctual desires provide the energy for manv of our dreams, and the fact that an instinctive desire remains unfulfilled may be connected with a traumatic experience in childhood. That experience has probably been repressed because it was traumatic - causing guilt, anxiety, fear of punishment. (For repression) Your dreams may, therefore, be helping you to uncover the source of these blockages which inhibit the free flow of the natural forces within you.

(2) Recurring dreams may represent some psychic disturbance or problem that originated in childhood. Here are some examples:

Dreams of being naked may sometimes represent recollections of, and perhaps longing for, the paradise of childhood when one w alked

around unclothed without embarrassment. (Sometimes these dreams, as Freud said, express a desire for someone of the opposite sex to present himself / herself in the nude, and stem from sexual frustration.)

Dreams of flying or falling may derive from childhood enjoyment of swings and see-saws. They may express straightforward yearnings for the remembered joy of childhood, but they may also reflect one’s present state of unhappiness and a futile desire to retreat from one’s problematic adult life. A problem is not a thing; rather, it is a relationship - for example, a relationship of conflict either between your external circumstances and your inner wishes (in which case the solution consists in either remov ing yourself from the circumstances or modifying your wishes) or between one part of your psyche and another (in which case the solution is to integrate the part that has been neglected). See also Falling, Flying.

Dreams of failure stem from childhood fears of disapproval from parents. However, die fact that your dreams contain these recollections suggests that you have programmed yourself for anxiety.

If so, begin by loving the child that is still within you: reassure it, tell it that everything is all right and that there is no such thing as failure where there is love. See also Failure.

(3) Dreams which contain recollections of yourself as a free and happy child may indicate a desire to find your true self. The child is then a symbol of the complete and permanent inner freedom and joy which are enjoyed only when you have become acquainted with all the forces within you - both conscious and unconscious - and have established harmonious relationships among them. See also Child, sections (2)-(4).

(4) The child may represent the primitive psyche with which your conscious ego needs to get acquainted if wholeness is to be achieved. This primitive psvche is the mind of humankind in its infancy, before the development of self-consciousness and reasoning. This original awareness is still with us, but buried in unconsciousness....

CALENDAR

This is a recurring dream for the terminally ill. The calendar allows you to place yourself precisely in the course of your temporality, which will allow you to gain some control over the vertigo that is produced seeing the time going by.

Dreaming of a calendar is promise of love, loyalty, and perseverance.

Calf See BABY and LAMB

Call This can be interpreted in several ways, depending on what happens and who appears in the dream.

If it is the dreamer who calls, it represents the need for external support at that time. Hearing a call and not paying attention, or being able to answer, alludes to a feeling of guilt about a lazy or careless attitude. To answer the call, however, indicates willingness to offer help to the people around you. On the other hand, it may be a matter of your unconscious trying to get your attention. Something important may be happening without you being aware of it.

If you dream that someone knocks at the door, soon fortune will smile on you.

CALENDAR - analysis of the dream

Lidia dreamed: “I was sitting in a class of my old college listening to a lesson. I did not understand what I was doing there; It had been years since I graduated; however, I took notes and tried to be very attentive to the professor’s explanations. Suddenly, I noticed a calendar hanging on the board. It marked the current date but its pages were detached by a gust of air and then they flew out the window, one by one, until the calendar was left with no pages. I had vertigo and felt lost.”

Lidia’s dream intrigued her for some time until she realized that it was warning her not to waste time; She needed to take full care of her responsibilities because the years pass quickly. Dreams in which time flies— and in this case happens literally: the calendar pages fly out the window—can refer to a hope for the time to stop and the current moment to become eternal. In the case of Lydia, it also revealed a nostalgia for the past and the desire to return to her student years, when her only responsibility was to be attentive in class....

DECOMPOSITION

To see something breaking down or rotting can be a sign that the dreamer has lost her interest or motivation in real life. It indicates an environment conducive to leaving behind a project that is not promising or that has been spoiled for any reason.

EARRINGS

According to the culture you come from, earrings could be indicative of certain social rank.

But, this is also a dream that reflects the dreamer’s relationship with the image he projects of himself. It’s meaning is associated with that of ADORNMENT. On the other hand, they allude to frivolity and flippancy.

Although ancestral tradition says that all the bad humors and negative energies of the body exited through holes in the ear lobe, modern tradition attributes this oneiric image to an omen of death.

EARTHQUAKE

analysis of a dream

Guillermo dreamed: “I was bicycling when the world began to shake beneath my feet. I soon understood that it was an earthquake, and I began to panic. People ran quickly with panic in every direction and I did not know which course to take. The buildings crumbled around me, filling the street with debris. Suddenly, the ground opened under my feet and before I could react, the ground swallowed me in its abyss. I awoke screaming with cold sweats.”

Dreams of disasters are usually nightmares in which you awaken startled, bathed in sweat and with difficulty going back to sleep. They are dreams that try to agitate you internally, and they send you a message in a convincing and effective way. However, you do not always understand what they are trying to say. In general, they allude to an internal change, a psychic transformation that brings about the destruction of a previous process. Guillermo had this dream a few days before he came out publicly with his homosexuality. His fall into the abyss represented the difficult situation in which he found himself and his fear of making such a decisive move in his life. ... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

FORK

A road divided, a crossroads, is a clear message: you have to choose, to take a direction and guide your actions toward it. The unconscious is telling you that you cannot postpone making decisions any longer. This can be hard and painful but you must act soon.

Formerly, criminals were hanged at the crossroads so many people could observe the dire consequences of committing a crime. In an oneiric sense, the fork represents crime, punishment, and death. However, many books about dreams also say that it alludes to an important decision to be made.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

PASTRIES

To eat pastries in dreams is synonymous with happiness. However, to eat sweets compulsively—that is, gluttonously—reveals a feeling of anxiety and frustration.

This image alludes to an excess of sentimentalism which causes conflict with more realistic people.

PLANNER

PLANT

analysis of a dream

Monica dreamed: “I was a fearless biologist who had been entrusted with the task of analyzing some exotic plants, very difficult to find, that grew in the Amazon. To get them, I had to plunge into a deep swamp with dangerous murky waters, full of poisonous snakes. Still I did not hesitate for a moment; I jumped headfirst into the lake with a machete in my mouth, under the watchful eyes of a native, with white paint on his face, who from the bank held a rope attached to my foot. It did not take any time at all to emerge with a triumphant smile on my face and five samples of these curious plants in my hand. I sat down to examine them and discovered, astonished, that inside their buds, the plant contained tiny human skulls.”

When Monica had this dream she was facing a very difficult situation: they had detected a malignant lump in her left breast, and she had to undergo treatment. Even then, she did not crumble, she trusted in the strength of her body and spirit and made every effort to fight the disease. The stagnant and muddy water of the dream reflected the difficulties she would have to face due to her health problem. However, her immersion in it, despite the danger, highlighted Monica’s fighting spirit. The native, with white paint—like color of her doctor’s gown— and the rope that bound her to him, represented her ties with medicine, her other life raft together with her willpower.

The fact that she completed her mission was none other than an announcement of the happy outcome of her disease. After six months, she got over it for good. The skulls allude to our spiritual doubts about the beginning

and the end of life, the concern that Monica felt about her fate. Plants, like skulls, are symbols of life, personal growth, and development. The dream was announcing to Monica that, despite the difficulties, the experience would make her grow, evolve, and better understand herself.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

POISON

Dreaming of poison alludes to the appearance of a negative period in life. To manipulate it foretells that the displeasure will arrive in an unforeseen form; to feel poisoned foretells that you will be very hurt.

SHIP

An oneiric ship can represent our life course and, depending on how it appears, will reveal the state of our mind.

If it is a cruise ship, the dream alludes to the pleasant calm that you are going through.

If it is a warship, you may be showing too much aggression. The appearance of a lifeboat at the scene indicates your need to escape a storm of feelings and problems in real life. If, however, is a submarine, the dream indicated your desire to explore the unconscious. On the other hand, ships also symbolize the ability to communicate with people who are far away, whether geographically or in their way of thinking and feeling. For this reason, a journey by sea means you have begun a new life stage or a new relationship. By contrast, in this sense, a ship that sinks warns of the danger of a breakup. (See WATER, BOAT, and SHIPWRECK)

A ship docked at the pier or sailing a calm sea predicts great happiness in love.

If you dream that there is a storm, this happiness will be delayed. In the case of a shipwreck, you will receive bad news.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

SMELLS

Rarely we dream of scents that are not from the physical space where we are sleeping. Otherwise, the smells in dreams have a highly sensuous connotation.

It is possible that the unconscious has launched a compensation mechanism in response to lack of satisfactory sexual intercourse. Although sharp and unpleasant odors are very rare, if you perceived one, it means that you are reacting to the attitudes of others.

Each scent has a specific meaning. Mothballs allude to scandal; ginger, to love affairs; jasmine, to true spiritual experience; lavender, happiness in relationships; and nutmeg, deception. In general, a bad smell means disease; and a good one, health. Perfume denotes beauty and pride. To notice a good smell emanated by someone promises new friends; but if someone detects your odor, it is indicative of lost friendships.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Suitcase analysis of a dream

Carlos dreamed: “I was looking for my bag and could not find it anywhere. I was at the airport and my plane was about to take off. They announced the last call to board, and I could not remember where I had left it. I was very distressed, it had all my documents, valuables, and money. But I could not miss the plane because an important business meeting awaited me. I spent the whole dream running back and forth, searching every corner of the airport, but nothing, the suitcase did not appear and I couldn’t leave; the tickets were inside.”

When Charles had this dream he was suffering the first symptoms of mild depression. He felt very sad, insecure, and uncomfortable in his life, but did not know how to improve it. Searching in dreams alludes to a lack, something that we need for our emotional stability. The suitcase full of important things reflects the values that guide us in life, without which we would feel lost, like Carlos. The plane shows our desire to excel, to rise or transcend our daily concerns. The fact that he missed it indicates that he felt unable to move forward, despite his continued attempts (running from back and forth, looking everywhere . . .). A month later, Carlos began treatment with a psychoanalyst to overcome his sadness. After a few days, he found his oneiric suitcase in a dream and managed to catch the plane. In his waking world, he began to understand the causes of his discomfort and feel more satisfied and confident in himself.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

THERMOMETER

This dream could be a warning of your physical state: You may be cold and have a fever. But it could also signify that your temperature, metaphorically speaking, is too high; perhaps due to attraction that you feel for someone.

TONGUE

In general, to dream of a tongue means that you talk too much.

If you bite it, it should be read as a call for prudence. this type of dream tends to indicate that you are starting to realize your failures and regret some things.

If the tongue stutters, it denotes that you don’t know how to express your needs in a coherent manner.

If it hurts, the dream probably alludes to the fact that you have been speaking badly of someone or telling lies. For Freud, the tongue had a clear sexual meaning. Because of its shape and erotic function, he compared it to the penis. (See TALKING and MOUTH)

if the tongue you dream about is your own, it means that you will tell lies.

If it’s someone else’s, others will lie about you. To dream that you don’t have a tongue denotes the inability to defend yourself against slander. Finally, an infected tongue means that you speak too carelessly.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

WEEPING

Tears are associated with rain and therefore also with vitality and fertility. But to cry in dreams can have a less favorable interpretation. Almost always, it is a compensatory mechanism of the unconscious, which releases repressed emotions. In this case, the meaning alludes to that of RELIEF.

BIRDS

Birds are complex symbols with many possible meanings.

As creatures that fly aloft with no attachment to the ground, they can represent freedom, either physical or psychological. Because they navigate in an unseen—and thus seemingly spiritual—medium, birds can have a variety of different religious meanings, as messengers of the divine (e.g., the Holy Spirit), as symbols of the soul, as heralds of spiritual aspiration (the desire to “soar aloft”), and so on. Blackbirds were traditionally thought of as omens of death, although they can also represent the shadow side of the self. Various other meanings are associated with particular kinds of birds (e.g., vultures). Also, birds in dreams sometimes allude to such metaphors as “bird-brained.”...

DANGER

Dreams about earthquakes, landslides and volcanoes all point to inner turmoil or emotional conflict that is shaking the foundation of the dreamer’s world. The dream may often come close to being a nightmare, but such dreams are warning you about something that is going on in your waking life to which you need to pay attention. A dream about a natural disaster is unlikely to be prophetic; it is more likely to be referring to something dangerous in your waking life. For example, an avalanche dream may refer to oppressive forces in waking life threatening to overwhelm you—an avalanche of responsibility, for example, that accompanies the birth of a new child.

If you are swept away in the dream, you are being urged to find something, or someone, to hold onto in waking life to regain stability.

If you dreamed that the earth was cracking open beneath you, this threat may be echoed in changes at work or insecurity within a relationship.

An explosion may reflect sudden changes in waking life or the release of emotion. What damage has the explosion inflicted in the dream? If anything was broken, interpret its symbolism; if someone was clinging on to you in the dream, who are they? If you dreamed you were in danger of thunder or lighting, again this may refer to emotional turmoil in waking life; but a dream about being struck by lighting could refer to sudden insight.

If you dream that you are falling into a dark hole, is there some situation in waking life out of which you feel you cannot climb?

Dreams featuring alarms may be caused by car or house alarms that go off in the night; if there is no external stimulus of this sort, and your dream features a house alarm, does this allude to your family? Does someone need protection at this time? Was the alarm effective in the dream? If the alarm failed to go off, this is an extremely significant symbol.

If your dream features a car alarm, this may allude to some kind of rash behavior and, as men often equate cars with sexuality, you may want to consider it in this context.

Dreams can also often warn of dangers of which we may be unaware in waking life. For example if you dream of overspending, this may suggest you are expending too much emotion on a particular person.

If you dream of escaping from a prison to a happy landscape, this may be a warning that you need to relax more. There are other practical warning dreams. For example, you may dream that your car brakes fail and in waking life find that this is indeed the case. There is usually a simple explanation as your unconscious mind may have registered the fault, but this kind of dream should not be ignored (see ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES). Similarly dreams of bodily aches and pains and other signs of poor health are also worth taking note of. See also SICKNESS AND HEALTH.... The Element Encyclopedia

A dream of being kicked or hit on the buttocks is a clear symbol of some kind of disapproval in waking life—perhaps self-disapproval. Dreams in which you are beaten or whipped may have a straightforward sexual meaning, but they could also refer to an overambitious friend or colleague.

If you are the person doing the beating, is the dream referring to your ambition? If a man dreams of injury to his genitals, it may be highlighting his fear of impotence; for a woman, such dreams may highlight her anxiety about reproduction or sexuality. A dream of castration can be terrifying for a man as it alludes to his whole sense of power and virility.... The Element Encyclopedia
