The meaning of Deformity in dream | Dream interpretation

Part of self you have neglected or not allowed to grow into complete expression; fear of development and growth.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

Deformity reflects that you reject some aspects of yourself.

If any limb of your body grows uncontrollably it means that this limb is relevant, so you have to analyze its specific meaning.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Dreams of deformity symbolize that there is an aspect of you that you have not yet embraced. Perhaps this is an aspect that you are ashamed of because it does not fit the status quo.

An abnormal growth or development could mean an aspect of your genius that has not yet been integrated and/or accepted by you. Acceptance has to begin with you. See Cripple.

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

A dream of a face is likely to be about the image you present to the world, so a swollen face may refer to self-importance and a blemished face to a character weakness or defect. A dream of injuries to your eyes or ears may simply refer to being unable to see or hear—or unwilling to see or hear—what is going on around you, rather than to any disease. A dream of being struck on the mouth or slapped across the face suggests an inability to get your point across, whilst dreams of injuries to your nose suggest difficulties getting to know other people intimately in your life.

Hair is an important sexual symbol for both men and women, so dreams of being forcibly shaven might be a symbol of castration or a sign of subjugation. Baldness in the dreams of both sexes suggests anxiety, not about going bald, but about a lack of intellect, either your own or someone else’s. Dreams in which your teeth fall out are very common and almost always associated with self- image or fear at having spoken out of turn (See also Tooth entry in BODY).... The Element Encyclopedia
