The meaning of Fairies in dream | Dream interpretation


The unseen world, our imagination, and the spirit of the inner child that awaits acknowledgment or expression (see Fables).

Brownies: Tiny, ragged men who symbolize matters of hearth and home, especially keeping things orderly and well run.

Elves: Thin, fair-skinned, pointed-eared, forest-dwelling Devas, these represent your magical or mischievous side.

Gnomes: As squat earth-dwellers, these creatures symbolize earth-related concerns.

Goblins: Green-skinned impish creatures that usually equate to our fears, malevolent prankishness, and, potentially, thievery.

Leprechauns: Shoe makers and the eternal gypsies of the fairy folk, these represent good luck, improved wealth, and a rogue-like personality.

Pixies: Being lead astray by something that looks quite innocent.

Salamander: A spirit who embodies a single flame, this Being knows how to live life to its fullest, and suggests you do the same (see Fire).

Sylph: Joy, laughter, carefree existence. Possibly a type of flying dream, as these fairies have gossamer wings (see Air).

Troll: Something or someone that prohibits a change or movement that you’re trying to make (see Bridge), at least not without exacting a price.

Undines (Merpeople): Essential emotions, and things you regard as wholly lovely (see Water). Alternatively, your idealized image of masculinity or femininity, depending on the sex of the creature (see Men, Women).

FAIRY

These mystical, magical creatures are a part of European, Roman and Greek folklore. They are known for their fickle nature, for their ability to grant wishes and for their whims of trickery. Fairies have a capacity for malice, their tools are wands and rings and they can generally be found in groups of three.

The idea of three fairies is at times interpreted as representing childhood, adulthood and old age, or birth, life and death. Fairies may be called the “mistresses of magic” and they may symbolize the extraordinary powers of the human spirit and our fundamental capacity of imagination. Alternatively, we may want to hold on to beliefs in magical powers that will save us from ourselves. In order to be well adjusted human beings, we need to adapt to our environment and accept our limitations.

The fairy in your dream may be interpreted according to the details of the dream and according to your current issues or developmental dilemmas. Is the fairy in your dream giving you hope by encouraging you to be creative and resourceful, or is she playing tricks on you and perpetuating your desire to be saved by magic?...

FAIRY

1- Bccausc fairies are representations of elemental forces, for them to appear in a dream signifies our conncction with those forces within ourselves. It could be that the lighter side of our nature is being highlighted, or it may be the more malign side as in goblins and elves.

2- Fairies are known to be capricious, and on a psychological level they may represent the side of our being that does not wish to be controlled, and wishes to have the freedom to react and be spontaneous.

3- Fairies arc reputed to have magical powers and, as Shakespeare’s Oberon found, there is also a need for control, otherwise the mischievous side will run riot.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

BELLS

(see Church, Music) Happy occasions; ringing out the old and welcoming the new.

Protection and warnings. Bells were used among the ancient Hebrews and medieval Europeans to frighten off mischievous spirits, fairies, and malicious magic.

A call to introspection: In Tibet, bowls that resound like bells are used for meditation and prayer. During the Christian era, bells announced the arrival of the Holy Spirit, and a time of worship.

Traditionally, if a bell tolls the time, listen to the hour. Midnight is the most ominous, portending an ending or death (see Clocks, Numbers).

A gong: Used in many Eastern lands to presage an announcement, gathering, or other matters of import.

If you’re expecting news, it is soon to come. Also, the number of times the gong sounds may be significant (see Numbers).... The Language of Dreams

FLYING

(see Airplane / Airport, Birds by type, Butterfly, Bat, Fairies, bisects by type, Wings)

Liberation or freedom. Overcoming a difficult situation and transcending limitations.

If you fly alone, this represents a personal journey filled with positive realizations.

If flying with others, this indicates the support of family, friends, or acquaintances, especially for a new endeavor.

An Out of Body Experience (OBE): Esoterically, flying through the air is sometimes interpreted as an OBE. Christian figures like Elisha and St. Anthony were believed to have this ability.

The ancient Egyptians called the astral body the ba, and in Germany the astral figure was sometimes likened to a doppelganger. No

matter the name, the purpose of such travel is to edify and educate the spirit, or potentially aid someone that you could not reach by normal means (see Bed).

With wings: If you have the wings of a bird when flying, check mythical or folkloric information on that bird for possible clues to your dream’s meaning.

For example, having the wings of a dove reveals nonviolent intentions or resolutions.

Wishful thinking (e.g., “flights of fancy”).... The Language of Dreams

IRONORE

(see Metals)

Since meteorites often supply one of the few sources of pure iron, this is sometimes called the sky stone and can herald a reconnection with more “cosmic” awareness.

Everyday life, and how effectively you use the simple tools you have available. In ancient times, iron was rarely used magically or religiously. People believed the metal would hinder metaphysical energy. Instead, iron became a favored metal in hand tools.

Because of its metaphysical neutrality, iron did find its way into amulets and talismans to protect people against fairies, jinni, ghosts, and dragons (China). Consequently, dreaming of it may portend a visitation from or the need to safeguard oneself from the Devic realms.

Roman: Strength and health. Athletes carried iron for endurance, and if worn as a ring or bracelet, they believed it could draw out maladies (see Jewelry).

Have you been daydreaming a lot, or are your goals too lofty? Iron reminds us to keep at least one foot in reality.... The Language of Dreams

FAIRY

Fairies represent the extraordinary powers of the human soul. Concretely, the prodigious capacity for imagination. They invite us to use all our qualities, announcing projects that up until now seemed undoable. However, if you have too much fun in the fairy world—looking to flee from your frustrations this way—you run the risk of losing sense of reality. For a man, dreaming of a fairy represents the feminine side of his personality. For a woman, it symbolizes her maternal instinct.

Some traditions believe that fairies are real beings that direct the powers of nature. There is a culture that, when a land is infertile, invokes the help of fairies to make it bloom. In fact, there are those that claim it’s possible to communicate with them through dreams.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

FAIRY

The tradition of fairies is quite ancient and ubiquitous in most mythologies in some form or another. Fairies have evolved and are fully present in modern media. They are very small magical beings who are thought of as harmless and even helpful in children’s material of today. However, they originated as beings who were often tricksters and filled with malice and ill intent.

If such a creature appears in a dream, be careful to see what its actual desires are.

A fairy could represent a thought or idea that looks harmless but actually may mean you harm. Look to where in your life you may be falling victim to magical thinking.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

FAIRY TALES AND SYMBOLISM

The symbolism in fairy tales speaks to adults as well as children, and deals with childlessness, sexual maturation, remarriage, jealousy across the generations, sibling rivalry, incest, murderous rage, inheritance issues and other timeless problems.

If you find yourself transported to the scene of a well-known fairy tale, the following tips may help with the interpretation. First of all, consider what common fairy tale motif your dream scene is depicting. For example, it could be:

Courtship tale
A strong theme in many fairy tales is the idea that love and goodness triumph. In the animal bridegroom tale, the girl protagonist marries some kind of beast, who is transformed by love in the course of the story into a (usually handsome) prince. In your waking life, do you feel you deserve the reward of love and security for your efforts? Do you believe love can conquer all? Or is your dream urging you to reconcile your masculine and feminine attitudes in waking life?

Good and bad choice
Most fairy tales involve a moment when the protagonist is faced with a choice. These include: helpless people or creatures to be kind or beastly to; opportunities to tell the truth or lie, or cheat or be honest; a choice to stand up for your principles or betray the innocent and submit to tyranny.

If someone’s inside and outside are at odds, typically by the end of the tale the two are reconciled (as in the Beast’s transformation in ‘Beauty and the Beast’). Notice the elemental justice of this fairy tale motif and see whether you can relate any of its themes to your waking life.

Magical gift
A mirror that allows one to see one’s heart’s desire (or one’s loved ones); a table that sets itself with food and dishes; a stick that beats one’s enemies; a goose that lays golden eggs; a pouch that replenishes itself with gold. Consider the symbolism of these motifs. To what gift or hidden quality is your dream referring?

Magical Helper
These would include: an old crone, a talking frog, a fairy godmother, a swan to convey one across a river, a bird that carries one in his claws. Also, and not always in a helping role, one might encounter magical creatures such as witches, ogres, fairies, mermaids, unicorns, trolls, gnomes and dragons. Consider the symbolism of any helpers, or non-helpers, that appear in your dream; they represent psychological energy or strength that you either possess or need to find. What qualities do they represent, and how will they help or hinder you?

The ‘Rule of Three’
Many fairy tales, as well as many dreams, seem to obey what might be called the ‘rule of three’. They may contain three characters (’Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’, The Three Billy Goats Gruff); three wishes; three tasks that a prince (or princess) must do to win his (or her) true love; three times for a request or saying to be repeated (I’ll huff, and I’ll puff…’).

If you find yourself in a story in which three is significant, see NUMBERS.

Trial or test to win one’s love
Going ‘east of the sun and west of the moon’ and bringing back a treasure; learning the answer to a riddle; spinning straw into gold (and guessing Rumpelstiltskin’s name); breaking through the 100- year-old forest to find the sleeping princess. Can you relate such tests to your waking life? What trials and tribulations do you need to overcome?

Remember that these stories have been told and retold for centuries because they have resonated with their hearers and expressed something important to their audiences. So if scenes from a specific fairy tale appear in your dream, consider the symbolism of the fairy tale motif, and see how the story and the lessons it teaches apply to your waking life.

If a specific character appears in your dream out of context from his, her or its fairy tale, for example Cinderella wandering the streets of New York on her own, Sleeping Beauty buying a house or Puss in Boots accompanying you on a train journey, consider what aspect of yourself or your life the character represents. So if you find yourself having lunch with Rapunzel in your dreams, think about the symbolism of her hair, which was cut off to punish the girl for her indiscretion. Is there something you feel guilty about in waking life or should feel guilty about? Or do you feel imprisoned in an ivory tower and long for freedom of expression?

Finally, don’t forget that, above all, fairy tales encourage you to believe in possibilities and the hidden ‘magic’ that can be discovered in the most unexpected places.... The Element Encyclopedia

SPIRIT

Spirits are commonplace in the religions and folklores of the world, coming in a multitude of shapes and forms, such as fairies, elves, demons and angels. The term is often used to describe all non-physical entities, including ghosts, but a spirit is not strictly speaking the same as a ghost, even though the distinction between the two is sometimes vague. In some cultures, they are also thought to personify characteristics and forces of nature, which are then worshipped by proxy. They are believed to exist in an invisible realm, but can be seen by clairvoyant seers. They are also thought to intervene at times in the affairs of humanity, for better or for worse.

In dreams, spirits represents feelings or intuition about the dead or death, and their appearance can help you come to terms with these. Whether you think they are actual spirits or not will depend on your own belief system. Typically, spirits in dreams are a comforting presence to help you through various times of transition. Are they aspects of your unconscious or of the dream world? In the end, the answer is in fact immaterial, since their function is to help you progress.... The Element Encyclopedia

FAIRY

Fairy is a collective term for many different beings, often tiny, beautiful, delicate and possessing magical powers. Many fairies have a human form, but some have animal or human / animal shapes. Elves, goblins, gnomes, dwarves and trolls are the most representative of Faerie races among the many different cultures of Europe. Some cultures believe that fairies—also called ‘fae’ or ‘fey’—are real beings who can direct the powers of nature. As ‘devas’, they help plants grow and thrive when called upon for their help. Some also believe that fairies can play tricks on humans and blame them when shiny, pretty items such as jewelry are lost.

If one appeases the fairies by leaving treats or trinkets in the garden, they may be less mischievous.

Other cultures believe that fairies are both male and female and the image of butterfly innocence and sweetness may in fact be a deceptive one, as fairies were traditionally malevolent towards humans. In dreams, these old beliefs may linger and fairies may be regarded as untrustworthy beings that foreshadow trouble. Fairies in dreams may be of either sex but are typically female. For Freudians, they can represent incest fantasies with a female relative. In the symbolism of dreams, fairies can also hint at your own latent powers or potential, so if your eyes were captured by a vision of a host of ethereal fairies dancing in the moonlight, was your unconscious encouraging you to discover your own inner magic potential? In the dream world, fairies can also represent hopes and desires. Maybe you’ve been going through a bad time, and have been wishing that your fairy godmother would appear and make it all go away with her magic wand.

If a woman dreams of fairies, it can symbolize the nurturing, maternal and feminine side of herself. Fairies in men’s dreams might represent the anima, the female aspect of the personality or, in line with its colloquial sense, repressed homosexual urges. When we accept and integrate both our masculine and feminine traits, we can achieve emotional balance. What was the role of the fairy in your dream? Were your wishes granted or did you fly away to some faraway land? If you were the fairy in your dream, what kind of power did you have? How did you use it? You may need to get in touch with the magical side of your personality and believe that you really do have the power within you to make your dreams come true.... The Element Encyclopedia

MYSTICAL CREATURE

Early human civilizations generally believed there were few barriers between the spirit world and the world of nature; as a result, the mating of gods and humans—or of gods and animals—occurs in most mythologies. The offspring of such unions lead us to the realm of giants and ogres, the miniature world of fairies and elves, and even the union of land and sea as personified by the mermaid. Mythological birds and beasts, such as the dragon, the sphinx and the centaur, have also appeared in dreams as companions or sentries. In general, magical creatures highlight fears or concerns you may have, or connect you to stories and myths that have a strong impact on you.... The Element Encyclopedia
