My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

Frequent dreams of young girls. Fear of sexuality. At issue is the emotional connection to her sexual partner (as in the fairy tale “The Frog Prince”). Because the shadow—something she is most repulsed by—is dissolved, she is changed. This is partly to be seen as a challenge to overcome our disgust and then to watch what happens. Conquering this feeling usually leads to a sense of self-liberation, particularly in the area of sexuality.

There is no escaping the fairy tale of the frog that might turn into a prince when kissed by a young maiden.

The essence of this construct is potential. Potential can be a powerful force for change if it is embraced; however, potential that is not met is of no value whatsoever. There are other meanings associated with frogs because of their amphibious nature. They represent parts of us that can survive both on land and in water. Unseen when under the surface of a pond, frogs can hop out at any moment, just as a strong emotional response can sometimes hop out of the unconscious without warning.

(1) This may be a sexual symbol, representing male genitals. As such it would appear in a woman’s dreams and might express fear of sex, or an ambivalent fear-fascination feeling towards it.

(2) The frog may symbolize the unconscious, or some part or function of the psyche that still lies buried in your unconscious, perhaps something you find horrifying or disgusting because of some traumatic experiences that gave rise to anxiety and / or guilt-feelings.

(3) Perhaps the frog in your dream comes from the story of the Frog- Prince. In the story a young woman is visited in her bed by a frog. At first, the girl is horrified and pushes the frog away. On the third night, however, she relents, and in the ensuing embrace the frog is transformed into a handsome prince.

Ernest Jones, a follower and biographer of Freud, says this is a story of a virgin overcoming her sexual fear.

For Joseph Campbell, an authority on mythology and a Jungian, the frog in the story symbolizes the unconscious, which at first sight is frightening but, when assimilated by the conscious ego, reveals itself for what it is - the total psyche, beautiful and true.

One might add that in both these interpretations what brings about the psychic transformation is a sexual embrace, but in the second

interpretation it is an inner embrace, an intermingling and mutual penetration of the masculine and feminine sides of your psyche. (For anima / animus, see Brother / Sister, section (4))

FROG TOAD

Although frogs and toads may appear similar to each other, their symbolism in dreams is very different. Toads, with their warty appearance and squat body, are often characterized as creatures of evil or loathing, so if one appeared in your dream, is there someone or something in your waking life that you loathe? Bear in mind, though, that the toad’s association with witchcraft and the sinister side of life is not the whole story. Toads were once associated with wisdom and the creature was thought to possess a precious jewel within its head that enabled it to see the pure and sacred in all things. To dream of a toad may therefore imply that you must look for the true worth within a person or object, and become insensitive to flattery.

Dream frogs are likely to have positive associations with transformation and fertility. This is because a frog undergoes dramatic changes in form, starting life as a tadpole and then changing into a frog.

If frogs appear in your dream, they may therefore be suggesting a whole new stage in your life. Frogs that lead or guide you in your dream (especially ones that can talk) reflect a side of you that is very basic and trustworthy, i.e.; this is the side of your intuition and the dream could be urging you to follow your instincts on a particular matter. Frogs also produce masses of eggs so to dream of a frog may indicate a desire to transform your waking life by having children, or by taking care of a project or person. In some amusing dream scenarios frogs can also represent men who did not turn out to be princes. This kind of dream isn’t trying to make you feel worse but urging you to give the search a rest and focus on enjoying other things for a while. A tadpole in your dream may suggest a transformation of some kind in your waking life, but can also suggest dangerous obstacles ahead.... The Element Encyclopedia
