hero

The meaning of Hero in dream | Dream interpretation


Celebrity or national hero represents guidance or higher self; otherwise may mean you have done something extremely well.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

A sort of dream of contrary in that if you played the hero’s part in your dream, you can expect to come in for some sharp criticism from your associates or from someone whose opinion you value: but if the hero in your dream was someone else, it predicts a profitable new offer.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

If you dream of doing a heroic deed, you will be likely to get into a quarrel with your wife or husband.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

To dream of a hero or heroine is an alert sign about the need to ask others for help in solving certain problems. However, if the dreamer is the hero, it makes clear the image of strength he has before others. Many times, in this dream, the hero represents your conscious part. This goes on an unconscious journey to challenge its powers. Equally, numberless myths and stories tell about how heroes venture to strange lands to find a treasure or rescue a beautiful damsel. These are symbols of the reward you will receive by investigating your most hidden side. For a woman, dreaming of the figure of a man made a hero could be evidence of her masculine side. For a man, finding the princess he was looking for could manifest that, finally, he has found the feminine aspect of his nature.

Some oneiric beliefs consider this dream to portend that someone who spurns the dreamer in real life will soon fall in love with them.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

1. Internal fortitude, personal power.

2. Reverse: behavior war­rants reassessment; moral questions or conflicts.

3. A hopeful proposition or change in attitude in the offing.

New American Dream Dictionary | Joan Seaman - Tom Philbin

A change of heart in someone who has hitherto been cool to you, especially should you dream of some great Hero of historic times.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

To dream about a hero, represents your admiration of a their physical traits, bravery and other virtues. Maybe you wish you could be more heroic in your own life.

If you were a hero in your dream, this signifies your inner strength and weaknesses. It may represent how you are bravely facing your own personal challenges. Also see “Saving the World.”

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

Inside each one of us is a child who would like to be a hero and save the world. All heroes likewise have their weaknesses, which hinders them from performing their objective.

To dream that you’re a hero points to both your strengths and weaknesses. It demonstrates your bravery and fearlessness.

Dream Symbols and Analysis | DreamForth

One admired for their achievements and service to others

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

(1) For a woman, a male heroic figure may represent her animus (see Brother / Sister, section (4)); or it may be a (romantic) sexual symbol.

(2) The hero may symbolize your conscious ego. Just as in myth the hero ventures into strange lands and wrestles with monsters to take possession of some great treasure, so the conscious ego must venture into the unknown realms of the psyche and face up to, tame and use creatively the forces that lie in the unconscious.

(3) If the hero rescues a maiden, the meaning - for a male dreamer - will probably be that he needs to bring the feminine side of his nature into active collaboration with his masculine side. See also Brother / Sister, section (4).

(4) If in a man’s dream the hero is assisted by a young woman, the hero may symbolize the conscious ego and the young woman the anima. The lesson will be as in (3) above.

(5) If the hero is accompanied by an older person (or friendly strong animal), that person / animal may represent innate wisdom and power in your unconscious: that which, from within your own psyche, can supply all that your conscious ego needs. See also Wise Old Man / Woman.

My Dream Interpretation

BECOMING A SUPERHERO

In this dream, a child may find themselves faced with an evil force or power and, as in the breathing underwater dream, just when the situation becomes desperate or hopeless, they find that they transform into a superhero with extraordinary powers. As a superhero, they destroy their enemies and resolve the conflict. Not surprisingly, this dream is more common with boys than girls, perhaps because from an early age boys are influenced by superhero role models, such as Spiderman or Power Rangers. The dream may also continue into adulthood.

The child who has this kind of dream tends to be coping with some kind of problem or obstacle; for example, financial hardship, or family tensions and conflicts, and the dream may reflect these tensions. The child may feel that they are trapped by the situation and are helpless to do anything about it; the dream refers to their desire to make problems disappear magically. But this kind of dream may point to more than a wish for magical powers, as it also shows the dreamer that within them these magical and unique powers are just waiting to be discovered....

HERO / HEROINE

A well-known desire for acceptance and validation, even if you are the hero or heroine yourself.

If you see a hero, it would indicate that you are hoping for help, but pettiness is involved. Adventuresome, craving for admiration, exaggerated and immature masculinity and femininity; but also vitality and the ability to succeed, similar to Hammer.

It may also mean the opposite—that you feel like a failure—or you must be in control of everything. Dreams about heroes belong usually to so-called “big dreams,” which take place in a person just prior to puberty, during midlife crisis, or before dying.

According to Jung, the hero is one of the important archetypes.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

HERO / HEROINE

The hero or heroine is the person who has elected to undertake their own journey of exploration. They are able to consider options and decide the next move. They will overcome challenges, solve problems and, more often than not, rescue someone who is in distress. The focal point of myth, legend and fairy tale is, in most cases, the psychological growth of the hero and heroine; modern fantasies express many of the same themes as their more ancient precursors.

Whether heroes and heroines appear in modern or ancient garb, they represent the same impulses within the dreamer, such as an expression of bravery, ambition or adventure.

For example, Star Wars grips its audience not just because of its ground- breaking special effects, but because it also speaks to our unconscious mind. The themes in the film exhibit many of the same structures possessed by myths and fairy tales. Extraordinary things happen to ordinary people and tragedy is the catalyst which sets the story in motion. For example, in Star Wars, the turning point for the young Luke Skywalker is the devastation of his family home. This may reflect the circumstances of your waking life. For many people, psychological growth begins with a tragedy or change in circumstances. Allies join the hero, Luke, just as they do in classic myth, and in Jungian psychology this represents psychological energy and the wisdom of the unconscious. The fantasy adventure goes on to express a classic hero myth, giving Luke greater self-realization and psychological wholeness.

So if a hero figure appears in your dreams whether in the guise of Luke Skywalker, Superman, Spiderman, Batman, James Bond, Robin Hood or Lara Croft, they often symbolize your search or desire for psychological wholeness. These figures—if you can properly understand their appearance and intention—are all assisting in the process of individuation, helping you to find yourself.... The Element Encyclopedia

HERO / INE

The archetype of the hero has fascinated, taught, even ennobled human beings for thousands of years. Appears as Christ, Athena, Krishna, Mohammed, Mary, Ulysses, Su­perman, Florence Nightingale, a great game hunter, Hercules, or any film or TV hero such as Captain Kirk or Dr Who. We are the hero/ine of our own life. We brave great dangers, face monsters, pass through difficult initiations. Fundamental to the whole drama of the hero/ine is the evolution of our own identity from the depths of unconscious in the physical pro­cess of conception, through to developing self awareness as an adult.

It is such an incredible journey, so heroic, so impossi­ble of achievement, so fraught with dangers and triumphs, that it is the greatest story in the world.

We find it told over and over symbolically in all the ‘holy’ books as the binh of the holy child; the journey of the hero/ ine; the creation of the world—our consciousness, the jour­neys of Moses. All penain to the difficulties and means we use to be; to the an of keeping balance amidst the multitude of forces acting on our human psyche.

The hero/ine is the one who dares, even though they feel afraid and in pain.

The avoidance of fear and pain in our society, where chemical anodynes or tranquillisers are sought to remove any tiny dis­comfort, is a great tragedy. Not that we need to become mas- ochists, but we miss our own wholeness through fear of our own power of experiencing. In other cultures the ability to meet pain and fear were considered spiritual strengths. They still are.

The following example shows one dreamer meeting his own fear and uncertainty. Example: 4I was in an ancient room. It had the feeling of being an old church. Then my wife and I were in bed in the room.

A middle aged woman was in the room. She was a ghost. I felt afraid of her, but to meet the fear I tried to confront her. I reached out my hand to her. I was crying out in my sleep from fear. As she took my hand I was amazed and shocked to feel it was physically real’ (see Christ within this entry, above). ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

HERO / INE

If we are not the hero/ine of our own dream, we are probably still not accepting responsibility for our own drives, potentials and weaknesses.

The hero/ine frequently depicts our initiative and unexpressed potential. We might see our highest ideals as coming from an exterior figure such as Christ, and so miss touching the depths of our own being, avoid responsibility for our urges or actions. What happens to the hero/ine shows how one’s own creativity and expressed love fare. See Christ, hero/ine and the self under archetypes; religion and dreams. ...

HEROIN

The ultimate opiate, heroin creates an immediate and powerful euphoria that leads to tremendous withdrawal and often dire consequences. As a symbol, it relates to the lengths to which people will sometimes go in order to feel good in the moment despite the negative consequences of the choices that are made. Heroin also relates symbolically to the perpetual cycle of engaging in a certain form of escapism no matter what. Anything can be a setup for an addictive response.

My Dream Interpretation

SUPERHERO / HEROINE

A male superhero represents a super intellect; thus to dream of seeing Superman, Batman, Spiderman, or whoever indicates that your mind is particularly sharp right now, and if there is a project you’re working on that requires a quick, agile, and insightful intellect, this is the time to concentrate primarily on it. Female superheroes such as Wonder Woman or Supergirl indicate a heightened supportive mind - and thus the dreamer’s intuition is operating at a very high level. Therefore at this time the dreamer should definitely believe in his or her hunches and go with them - no matter what the intellect tells you.

If the dreamer encounters both male and female superheroes, then both faculties of his mind are especially sharp right now. Use your intellect, but when in doubt, follow your heart.

If the superhero or heroine is flying, or performing a rescue, then your mental and/or intuitive faculties will save you from an uncomfortable situation.... Dream Explanations of Astro Center

THE SUPERHERO

From Herakles to Superman and Spiderman, the legendary superhero with magical, superhuman powers can come in many guises but his purpose is clear: he must defeat evil, and defend truth and justice. There is, however, always a price to pay or a sacrifice to make for his superhuman powers. For example, Superman must resist the advances of reporter Lois Lane, to whom Clark Kent would easily succumb.

If the image of a superhero or heroine appears in your dream, it is not only reminding you that your powers might be far greater than you think; it is also suggesting that there may be sacrifices you need to make along the way.... The Element Encyclopedia
