DAREDEVIL

Dreaming of a daredevil implies that you may be allowing yourself to be unduly influenced and ultimately suppressed by another’s views.

To dream of yourself as the daredevil may be showing you that you are leaping into a situation before you have thought it through. Speaking to a daredevil within a dream suggests that heightened awareness is called for to keep you in balance.... Dream Symbols and Analysis

DEMON

The image of the devil in a dream (whether he has horns and tail) indicates that you should not be tempted to use illegal means in order to achieve your goals. It means that you are in an obscure, hidden situation, or that you have a double intention. In addition, the devil can impersonate your fears, desires that you repress, or some misconduct in real life. The best weapon against the latter is to make use of love and honesty.

The figure of Satan appears in the Jewish, Islamic, and Christian traditions. Originally, it represented fertility and the powers of nature. Maybe your unconscious is giving you the keys (compost) for your inner growth.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

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....

DEMONS

(see also Devil, Evil)

Demons in dreams probably represent parts of your unconscious mind that have been repressed and neglected and arc now threatening to disrupt or mutilate the psyche. They should be approached lovingly, given attention and integrated into your conscious life. This will bring about their ‘conversion’: they will cease to threaten and will contribute their vital energies to the enhancement of the self.

Self-knowledge - knowing what we are earning around with us in our unconscious - is the only sure defence against what in ancient times was called demonic’possession, which in psychological terms means the conscious ego being taken over by unconscious forces (obsessive fear or anger, or whatever)....

DEVIL

For farmers to dream of the devil, denotes blasted crops and death among stock, also family sickness. Sporting people should heed this dream as a warning to be careful of their affairs, as they are likely to venture beyond the laws of their State.

For a preacher, this dream is undeniable proof that he is over-zealous, and should forebear worshiping God by tongue-lashing his neighbor.

To dream of the devil as being a large, imposingly dressed person, wearing many sparkling jewels on his body and hands, trying to persuade you to enter his abode, warns you that unscrupulous persons are seeking your ruin by the most ingenious flattery. Young and innocent women, should seek the stronghold of friends after this dream, and avoid strange attentions, especially from married men. Women of low character, are likely to be robbed of jewels and money by seeming strangers. Beware of associating with the devil, even in dreams. He is always the forerunner of despair.

If you dream of being pursued by his majesty, you will fall into snares set for you by enemies in the guise of friends.

DEVIL

Dreaming about devils and demons is usually very frightening and you may awake from fear.

The devil does not generally represent something outside of yourself. It usually symbolizes the most negative and least developed part of you. It may be that part of you that is ignorant and destructive. You can determine the meaning and message in your dream by looking at all of the details carefully. All dreams are good dreams in that they bring unconscious materials to the conscious mind. Only then can you begin to effectively cope with the more unpleasant sides of your personality. Carl Jung called this negative side the “shadow.” The devils in your dreams could be representations of your personal shadow or they could be a glance at the collective shadow. See also: Satan ...

Usually repressed natural drives, particularly sexual feeling—one can express physical sex, yet still repress sexual longing and connected emotions of tenderness.

It is what is unlived in us, and devil is lived spelt backwards. Any code of conduct, whether accepted from parents or peers, leaves as­pects of our total self unlived.

The struggle with paternal au­thority or power within oneself is often represented as the devil.

If we change our code of conduct, we may meet the devil because we release the previously unlived area of self. As Pan: the same, except that Pan represents losing oneself to the natural urges. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

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....

1- In previous times, the figure of the Devil was one to be feared and hated. As the wilder, more Pagan side of ourselves the conventional figure with horns and a tale will often appear in dreams.

It is almost as though it has been given ‘life’ by the way that people concentrate on it. Once it is understood as something to be confronted. as something belonging to all of us, the Devil loses it potency.

2- As a personification of the evil side of ourselves, we often need to have an object to confront. In dreams, as in fantasies, the Devil allows us to do this.

To dream that one has seen the devil, and thai he is tormented, or otherwise much terrified, signifies that the dreamer is in danger of being checked and punished by his sovereign prince, or some magistrate. And quite contrarily, ii he dreams he strikes the devil, or some person he believes to be possessed, and fancies he overcomes him, it is a sign he that dreams thus shall overcome his enemies with glory and satisfaction.

If any dream that he sees the devil, it is a very bad sign, for such a vision cannot bring along with it any good tidings to the sick it foretells death, and to the healthful it signifies melancholy, anger, tumults and violent sickness.

If any dream the devil speaks to H^n, it signifies temptation, deceit, treachery, despair, and sometimes the ruin and death of him that dreams.

To dream that one is carried away by the devil, is a worse dream; and yet no dream delights the dreamer so much as this, for being awakened he is ravished with joy that he is freed from so great an evil; for which he ought to return thanks to God, and beg of him that he would be pleased to send him his good angel to guard him, and fight against that wicked spirit which stands always sentinel to surprise us.

To dream you see the devil as he is drawn by painters! and poets, viz. black and hideous, with homsT claws, and a great tail, signifies torment and despair- To dream you see yourself with the devil, signifies gain.... The Complete Dream Book

Symbol: The devil is a symbol of confusion, darkness, and death. Vision: Seeing the devil: you are either too preoccupied with negative thoughts or someone around you has a diabolical influence on you that is threatening your serenity. You are faced with temptations that could have serious consequences. Don’t give in—even if your own weaknesses make it hard for you to resist.

Depth Psychology: Satan is a symbol of a purely egotistical side of your unconscious, or of your fears, passions, rages, or hates. These energies always lead to internal and/or external conflicts and need to be redirected—the sooner the better.

If Satan appears in your dreams: while you reject some of these feelings, they are, nevertheless, reflected in what you do and how you behave (which you usually regret afterward). See Demon.... Dreamers Dictionary

If you successfully fought him off, then you will short circuit those who mean you ill, and if he spoke to you, you are in for great temptations which you will find hard to resist.

DEVIL

(1) The Satan of Jewish-Christian-Islamic tradition was originally a homed fertility god, a personification of the fertilizing power of Nature. In psychological terms, a fertilizing agent is something within the psyche that can inaugurate a new phase in the individual’s development.

(2) The evil connotations of the devil figure may reflea the dreamer’s fear of those repressed contents of the unconscious that are, in fact, the very forces that - if mobilized and utilized - could bestow new and fuller life. What we repress is invariably something that had great value for us but on some occasion in the past gave rise to guilt-feelings or a fear of punishment.

It is our fears that invest the unconscious with the fearsome characteristics of a dark underworld inhabited by evil monsters. In reality, the unconscious contains all the energy and wisdom we need for healing and wholeness.

It might be said that our fundamental human task is the conversion of the devil within ourselves, that is, converting negatively charged (dissident, destructive) psychic forces into positively charged (life enhancing and unifying) powers. Bur you won’t convert the devil with brute force, only with love. The negatively charged psychic forces are the ones you neglect and despise or fear. They become positively charged when you acknowledge them and integrate them into vour conscious life.

If we do not recognize the ‘devil’ within ourselves, we shall project him on to others and thereby give more scope for hatred and destruction (the real devil!) in the world. See also Evil.

(3) In certain contexts - if, for example, he has horns or is sexually involved with naked women - the devil may be a sexual symbol.

If sexuality is represented in such a guise in a woman’s dream, it is possibly because she has a fear of sexual relations. In a man’s dream the indication might be that he has a guilt-ridden attitude towards his own sexuality (which Freud might trace back to anxiety’ arising out of the normal male infant’s erotic feelings for his mother)....

DEVIL

Most people will fall into two categories regarding the Devil: the religious and the non-believers. There is a third category of people who don’t necessarily believe in the Devil, but were raised in an environment that embedded certain beliefs that they may have consciously rejected but that still have great power in the unconscious mind.

The first and foremost quality of the Devil is temptation.

The ultimate motivation for the temptation is for ownership of a person’s soul. In the world of psychology and dream work, the soul is akin to your spiritual nature and the totality of your experience as a human being.

The presence of God and the Devil in our world offers each of us a choice:

With whom will you align yourself and on what will you base your life choices? Your higher nature, through the choice of love, or your lower nature, through the choice of fear? The presence of the Devil in a dream indicates that a powerful degree of fear is being expressed. Bondage is another important element associated with the Devil.

The contract he offers is permanent, with severe consequences. In symbolic terms, the Devil could illuminate areas in your life where you feel you have sold out. Look for situations in which you feel stuck for reasons of obligation, financial insecurity, or outmoded satisfaction. Often we make choices that initially provide us with something we desire, only to discover that we pay a price we hadn’t counted on. Real soul-searching may be called for when the Devil appears in a dream. What thoughts or old ways of being must be cast aside for your greater good? From a lighter perspective, what devil-may-care attitude might be inviting you to discover that which your inner critic won’t give you permission to explore? The phrase “the devil made me do it” can be either a misguided excuse for bad choices or a call toward letting go of judgment.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

DEVIL

Dreaming of a devil or any other personification of evil such as an imp or a demon does not mean that you are heading for eternal damnation. In most cases, such images are simply a warning that you may be succumbing to temptation or heading down a path that will lead to unhappiness. Your conscience may be making a timely appearance, asking you whether there is some wrong you need to right in real life. The devil may also refer to your shadow or to repressed sexual drives that need your attention. Alternatively, devil dreams may be warning about a danger that lurks outside you rather than within. Is there someone in your waking life who does not have your best interests at heart?

Finally, if spirituality is neglected in your waking life, it may reappear in its negative or terrifying forms, such as the devil, demons or the vengeful gods of the Hindu faith.... The Element Encyclopedia
