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

DEVIL

Usually an indication that the shadow needs to be better integrated in the Self, or a reference to a onesided intellectual attitude like Mephistopheles’ in Faust.

A black devil represents darkness and death; a red devil is the messenger of light and passion, who is keeping close company with the wild.

A green devil represents nature, which usually appears in the form of a snake, cat, or goat (all are symbols for the Devil).

The Devil symbolizes the animal nature of human beings and their connection to the earth.

Like Ahriman (an ancient Persian version), the Devil is the antagonist of light, descended from the heavens in the form of a snake. In Hebrew he is Satan, representing the picture of evil lust; in the New Testament he is the antagonist of the church, embodying the absence of God among peoples. According to Irenaeus, a 3rd century Greek priest, the Devil is really an angel who has fallen because of his arrogance. As Lucifer (who brings light), the Devil is considered a creature of light. In Dante’s Divine Comedy, Lucifer has three heads, lives in the darkest parts of the earth, and is the opposite of the Holy Trinity. In the eyes of Christianity, almost all gods of native tribes were considered devils. In that sense the Devil also symbolizes everything that is natural, original, and has the spark of light....

RELATIONS HIPS

(see Bride, Engagement, Groom, Marriage, Parents)

These dreams frequently relate to real-life scenarios in which the relationships in the dream mirror those from waking hours. If, however, the relationship takes on different dimensions in the dream, this may reflect your hopes or fears for that association.

Building a relationship with strangers in your dream can indicate building similar bridges between your ego and psyche for self-actualization. It can also reveal a more social attitude developing in which you’re not so shy about extending yourself to others.

Antagonistic relationships in dreams usually divulge your own hostility and conflicts with the persons seen. Alternatively, this may be self-hatred. In either case, the source of the anger needs to be detected and reconciled.... The Language of Dreams

ARROW

You’ve got an undercover antagonist among your friends if you dreamed of being hit by an arrow.

DUEL

A duel will almost certainly signify an inner conflict, or a warring relationship with another person.

If it is the latter, you already know the antagonists; if it is the former, you must try’ to identify them by being each of them in turn, in imagination. Get a dialogue going between the two, letting each present his case. Then allot to each of them an appropriate role in your conscious life.

The conflict will almost certainly be between your conscious ego and your unconscious, which means that usually you will only have one antagonist to identify.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

ENEMY

(1) An enemy coulçi be a real-life enemy.

If so, look for some way of coming to terms with the situation, either by removing yourself from it or by mending the situation - which may involve ‘having it out’ with the other person.

(2) The enemy may be something within yourself. Is there some inner conflict that needs resolving? See also Alien, section (3), Fight(ing).

The enemy in your dream may be those qualities or parts of your psyche that have been neglected: what Jung calls “the shadow5. This appears as the conscious ego’s antagonist because it is struggling to assert its right to participate in your conscious life. Only by letting it do so can you attain personal wholeness....

HEAD

(1) A head may be a symbol of intellect: rational as distinct from intuitive thought.

(2) It may symbolize the conscious ego as distinct from the unconscious (which might be represented by the abdomen or solar plexus).

(3) It may be a symbol of masculinity.

(4) A monstrous, horrifying head probably represents negative - because repressed - drives or processes in your unconscious. Try to follow Perseus’ example. The Gorgons’ eyes turned to stone anyone they looked at; but when Perseus succeeded in cutting off Medusa’s head, the winged horse Pegasus sprang from her body. This may be seen as symbolizing the psychic or spiritual development that results from facing up to whatever is fearsome in one’s unconscious.

(5) A two-headed creature may symbolize either duality, antagonistic opposites in your psyche or the (needed) union, or bringing together, of opposing psychic qualities / functions / forces - for example, masculine and feminine; conscious and unconscious.

RELATIONSHIPS

(1) Personal relationships in dreams are always important. They fall into two categories: first, those that refer to actual waking-life relationships; secondly, those that depict relations between the conscious ego and other parts of the psyche. Meetings with strangers will nearly always belong to the second category: the strangers will be parts of your psyche that you have not yet got to know very well. And even where there is no doubt that the dream is asking you to take a serious look at an actual real-life relationship, you should bear in mind that the quality of your external relationships may be determined by the way your conscious ego relates - or fails to relate - to other parts of your psyche. For example, a man who does not acknowledge the feminine side of his own nature may have very unsatisfactory - perhaps very superficial - relationships with women. In other words, when a dream shows you in relationship with an actual real-life person, it may be inviting you to look at the relationship with a view to understanding yourself better: how you relate to other people reveals yourself (e.g. are you projecting on to the other person some unacknowledged characteristic of your own?).

Patterns in dreams correspond to patterns in your conscious life, or else - occasionally - a dream may present a pattern for you to follow in your life instead of old patterns. For example, a man may relate in dreams to very feminine women. This may represent an established pattern in his waking life, in which case he is being asked to reassess that pattern. Perhaps he is attracted only to very feminine women because he is projecting on to women his own repressed femininity and needs to

integrate his anima. On the other hand, a dream of relating to a woman in a very bold and assertive manner may be the unconscious way of telling a man he needs to display his masculinity’ more. See also Sex.

An antagonistic or belligerent relationship in a dream probablv indicates a need to be reconciled with the other, whether the other is another person or another part of yourself.

In the dream do you control, or want to control, the relationship? Perhaps the dream is a descriptive one, simply describing how, in fact, you do behave; in which case, your unconscious is probably asking you to review your situation. Perhaps you need to learn to let go, and trust people more. On the other hand, the dream may be a prescriptive one, telling you what you ought to be doing: perhaps you have been too weak and unassertive in the past. Do you tend to be, in your dreams, a mere observer, watching other people relate? Well, it is a good thing to observe, whether what you are observing is external relationships or internal relations between parts of yourself. But the process of self- discovery may be accelerated if you resolve to participate more in future dreams. Try it. Relating with your shadow may be much more revealing than just looking at it.

(2) There may be impersonal or spatio-temporal relationships between dream items or between one episode of a dream and the next. For example, an earlier dream episode may symbolize whatever is the cause of what is symbolized in the following dream episode. (But do not assume that this causal relationship always exists between different parts of a dream.)

If a person is taller than you (in a dream), this may mean that you see that person as superior to yourself.

If the person in the dream represents some part of your psyche, the meaning would then be that your conscious ego tends to submit to this other psychic component.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

UNDERDOG

There is probably a conflict between two parts of yourself: for example, conscience (represented by an ‘overdog’ figure) and an instinctive desire (represented by an ‘underdog’ figure). ‘Overdog’ and ‘underdog5 are associated with Fritz Peris, who would have recommended Gestalt group therapy. You might try the DIY dialogue technique, using two chairs and moving from one to the other as you play the role of each antagonist in turn, with a view to resolving the conflict - instead of just brushing it under the carpet again....

LIVER

The liver of a person symbolizes the two sides of the coin: joy and pain. What happens to the liver in the dream indicates the contingencies these two antagonistic concepts are subject to.

If it belongs to a horned animal, the liver is an omen of success, employment, and dignity. ... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
