denial

The meaning of Denial in dream | Dream interpretation


If you dreamed that someone else was in a state of denial, you may be too forceful with your opinions. Remember that others have a right to disagree with you.

If you dreamed of being in a state of denial yourself, your dream is alerting you to a similar situation in real life. You have all the facts but are not putting them together properly. Also see “Accuse/Accusation”.

AGE

To dream of age, portends failures in any kind of undertaking.

To dream of your own age, indicates that perversity of opinion will bring down upon you the indignation of relatives.

For a young woman to dream of being accused of being older than she is, denotes that she will fall into bad companionship, and her denial of stated things will be brought to scorn.

To see herself looking aged, intimates possible sickness, or unsatisfactory ventures.

If it is her lover she sees aged, she will be in danger of losing him. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

BOOKS

In our daily life, books are a source of information and a place to gain knowledge. They can be inspirational, and their messages are sometimes so strong that they change our lives.

The books in our dreams can represent our memories, learned understanding, ideas, or viewpoints. They can alert us to the fact that we have something new to learn and that we should spend time on mastering new tasks. Pay attention to what kind of book you are seeing in your dream and its purpose in the larger context of the dream. Also, note reading any passages or specific messages from the book. At times the book may be pointing to new themes or purposes in your life. Pay attention! The unconscious mind is constantly making attempts to communicate with the conscious in such ways that the dreamer will recognize it without panic or denial. Superstition-based dream interpretations say that if you are dreaming of books, you can be assured of slow but steady progress in your life. See also: School, Library... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

CRYING 

Emotions being released. In our dreams we experience a variety of emotions. Crying in the dream state generally has the same meaning as crying in daily life.

It is a release of negative emotion, frustration, or fear. On the other hand, you could be experiencing the tears of joy. Due to repression or denial, sometimes people are unable to express their feelings. In the dream state some of our defense mechanisms may relax and an emotional release occurs. Some emotional dreams may be compensatory in nature. Thus, if you never cry in daily life, you may cry in your dreams.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

GLASS

Very important things are made out of glass. Amongst them are windows that allow sunshine into our homes, drinking glasses, seeing glasses, etc. Glass makes our lives more comfortable and we rarely, if ever give it any thought. Consider the details of your dream and try to figure out how this dream about glass is relevant to you.

If glass is shattered in your dream, it could symbolize breaking of both negative and positive things.

For example, it could represent the breaking of illusions, denial, and deception. On the more negative side, it could also represent the shattering of dreams or hopes that a person has been holding close to his heart. Old dream interpretation books say that looking through a clear glass is a sign of good luck and through a dirty glass symbolizes domestic difficulties.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

SATURN (CRONOS)

Saturn is a Roman deity representing the Golden Age. He is associated with the Greek god Cronos. Cronos was a Titan, the son of Uranus and the father of Zeus (Jupiter). Cronos dethroned his father and was later dethroned by Zeus. Thus, from a psychoanalytic point of view, dreaming about Saturn may be symbolic of some aspects of the Oedipus complex. It may bring up the desire to challenge authority and gain personal power and identity. Astrologically, Saturn represents a wide range of positive and negative attributes. He represents barriers, misfortune, fixation and impotence, as well as loyalty, righteousness, consistency, knowledge and self-denial. Saturn symbolizes man’s ability to recognize the difficulties of life and to confront the impulsive and passion motivated lifestyle. Dreaming about Saturn, may be an unconscious message regarding self-restrain and a need for a more intellectual, moral and spiritual life. Also, Saturn’s influence has a way of amplifying reality.

If there is melancholy or despair, it remains fixed. Thus, dreaming of Saturn might call your attention to unpleasant aspects of life or to self-negating emotions. However, the psyche may be providing you with knowledge that can be used to motivate and transform current reality through hard work and self-discipline. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation

BODY

It refers to oneself, as in the word sorcxehxty. Al­though it includes the totality of our expenence, it seems to be most pointedly referring to our sense of identity. From this sense of ourself we project meaning on to the rest of the world in some degree. Thus many symbols are stylised body forms.

The cross is a standing figure with arms outstretched, a church’s structure a representation of the body, and the mira­cle of sexual reproduction—the mystery enacted within it; a maypole, the penis. Therefore various things can represent our body or aspects of ourself. Seeds, swallowed teeth can be sperm, anything long and pointed, even a linger, can be the penis; anything hairy, a male; anything receptive like a bottle, bowl or cave, a woman or vagina.

A body, or our body, also represents physical life; material existence; the process which causes growth and aging. This includes all the processes of nature in us.

A dead body: our skin or shape is felt as our boundary, the edge of our universe.

The dead body depicts a whole set of personality traits or attitudes, very often potentials, which have been denied life by us. We have not allowed them expression.

A person hun in love might kill out any feelings towards the opposite sex. This ‘dead pan of them can be shown as a body. May also be the way we meet feelings about death. Sickness in body: can refer to an awareness of illness in pan of body shown. Most often depicts psychological problem symbolised by pan of body— see body pans below. Maggots in body: possible need to cleanse body of toxins or infection, sense of dis-ease emotion­ally in that area of self. Iniunes: huns or events that may lead to emotional scars—see body areas below. See dead people dreams; hiding.

Bodiless: Example: lI felt as if I was going very deep inside myself. It was dark but at first there were noises of the world around me. I seemed to go in much deeper and it was very dark, but with the feeling of great space. Everything was all right until I didn’t hear any noise at all, all that space and no noise was too much and my whole body freaked out and then pulled out very fast before I could stop it’ (Kate P).

The ‘noises’ around us, sensory impressions, other people s ex­pressed feelings and actions, are building bricks for our sense of self. In a real sense we create each other by believing in each other. With prolonged absence of other people and events, and especially if we lose our noises’ and body aware­ness, we feel we—our sense of identity—is dying. Bodiless- ness may therefore show us feeling unrecognised, unnoticed. May also be feelings of loneliness; being cut off from sexuality and body drives. In its positive side it is exploration of the unconscious and void. See identity and dreams.

If you are right handed, the left of the body: represents inner feelings which support outer action, such as confidence, our less used or supportive functions.

If we are an intellectual, the left might depict one’s feelings, and vice versa.

The left may represent our mother’s influence in our life and body.

The right of the body: our outer activity and dominant func­tions; expressed abilities; our father’s influence in life and body.

If father is an anxious man there might be a lot more signs of stress on this side of the body. Top half of body: thinking, feeling. Bottom half: sexuality and instincts. Half a body: if top missing, lack of thinking and higher emotion; if bottom, trauma to, loss or denial of, sexuality and sensuality. Old head on baby body: immature sexuality and emotions; vice versa: immature personality. Dismembered body: emo­tional or mental stress and breakdown; may be followed by emergence of new self.

The areas of our body are sometimes thought of as sense organs. This may seem strange but is very simple. Without language, communication would be difficult. So language en­ables us to sense what another being is communicating.

If we had been castrated or had a hysterectomy prior to adoles­cence, we would never develop sexually. Without that devel­opment we would not understand two kissing people; or what a mother was feeling when she held her baby. Out of the sex drive develops a whole world of feelings and tenderness which enables us to understand many things we see in the world.

It is therefore important when reading the particular de­scriptions below to remember that each psychological area of our body gives us some insight into ourself and life around us, which is missing if the area is injured or traumatised. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

CASTRATION

Loss of masculinity and vitality. As a dream image, it is almost always a sign of repressed physical urges. Castration dreams refer mostly to inferiority complexes and feelings of guilt. In rare cases, castration points to a deep-seated denial of masculine sexuality. At the time of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, castration dreams were relatively frequent. Now, they happen relatively seldom, since our attitudes to sexuality have changed.

A woman is not likely see herself as a castrated man, and aggressive masculinity is today accepted by man and woman as an important part of themselves and does not need to be punished with castration. Castration dreams today are mostly seen as referring to work and vitality. Also, castration dreams dreamed by women and men are often a reference to their relationship.

If a relationship is problematic and a partner feels restricted, fantasies and images about castration are normal. Castration dreams, in rare cases, may also have a positive side: one is liberating oneself from burdensome tasks. See Donkey, Genital Organ, Sexuality.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

LIGHTNING

If lightning is only illuminating the sky—a sudden idea. On November 16, 1619, Descartes had a dream and, among other things, saw lightning, which showed him that he now had found his own method of understanding.

Lightning as a natural occurrence indicates a repressed effect, denial that wants to be expressed or lived out through sudden aggressive action; an uncontrolled release of great energies. Fighting (“lighting into somebody”).

According to Artemidorus, the 2nd century dream interpreter, a good omen.

PILLOW

1- In ordinary everyday life a pillow or cushion can offer support or comfort. So, in a dream, being conscious of a pillow may suggest such a need. Sometimes what the pillow is made of is important, and may have relevance in the interpretation of the dream.

For instance, a feather pillow would suggest gentle support, whereas a stone pillow would represent a degree of rigidity.

2- Sometimes, when the dreamer is going through a period of self-denial, he will deny himself any comfort symbolism and so his pillow may disappear.

To dream of a pillow fight indicates a mock conflict.

3- Spiritual comfort and ease are represented by the pillow.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

POVERTY

1- To experience poverty in a dream highlights a sense of being deprived of the ability to satisfy our basic needs. We may feel inadequate, either emotionally or materially. Often we need to go right back to basics to discover what our real needs are.

2- Poverty in a dream can be conveyed by poor surroundings.

It may be that we need to deal with our surroundings rather than ourselves.

SAVINGS

1- In dreams we often develop images which have dual meanings. Our savings may represent resources, either material or emotional, which we have hidden away until such times as they arc needed. They can also represent our sense of security and independence.

To dream of savings we did not know we had would suggest that we are able to summon up extra energy or time, perhaps by using material or information from the past.

To dream of making savings in the present suggests we may need to give consideration to the wherewithal we have in the here and now to succeed in the future.

If we arc aware of our goal in making savings we should perhaps make long-term plans.

2- When we dream of savings we are aware of the need for conservation. fhis may be on a personal level or in a more global sense.

If there is a feeling of self-denial in our making savings we may not have managed our resources properly in the past and are having to suffer for it now.

If someone else gives us their savings we are able to use their knowledge and expertise. Conversely, if we give our savings away we no longer have need of whatever those savings mean to us.

3- In the spiritual sense, savings suggests those talents and abilities which we have or have developed, but have not yet used, particularly those for the Greater Good.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

YEARN

1- Feelings in dreams arc often heightened in intensity.

A need which may be perfectly manageable in ordinary everyday life becomes a yearning and seeking in dreams. Such a dream would highlight an emotion which we may need to look at in order to understand.

2- If we have suppressed our needs through long habit or self-denial, an urgency may emerge in dreams for the very thing we have consciously denied.

3- The dreamer may have become somewhat impatient in his seemingly never-ending search for his spiritual self. This is often symbolised by a yearning feeling in a dream.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

SAND

(see Desert, Oasis) Spiritual or emotional dryness.

A self-imposed hermetic retreat for the purpose of delving further into your Higher Self or communing with God.

Being buried in sand, or engulfed in quicksand, equates to a kind of death or burial dream in which you feel completely engulfed by people or circumstances that drain your resources, but never give anything back.

Denial and refusing to see the truth for what it is (e.g., “having one’s head in the sand”).

BED

Symbol: The bed symbolizes regeneration, love, death, and birth.

Vision: Seeing an empty bed in a dream means bad news, perhaps news about a death. Seeing oneself in bed: pay attention to your health; the dream suggests that you need quiet and solitude (too much stress may lead to illness). Lying in a strange bed: exercise caution—don’t be too trusting. Seeing a soiled bed: you are surrounded by negative people, be careful.
