FOREIGN

Dreams of anyone or anything foreign denote that you are expanding your horizons. When you remove yourself from your day-To-day life, and explore new and foreign terrain, you are able to bring back a wealth of information and perspective that enriches and benefits your life. This dream also denotes that you may be feeling out of your element, away from your tribe; you are in the midst of a transition, learning and discovering aspects of yourself you never knew existed. As you evolve, you may be feeling unfamiliar in your own skin, going through an identity crisis; you are not who you used to be and you are not yet who you are becoming. Keep in mind that wherever you go, home resides within you. See Alien and Travel.... Strangest Dream Explanations

FOREIGN

Dreaming of a foreign country reflects changes in your work or social life.

If the dream is unpleasant and you feel anxious it means you are not prepared for these changes. If, on the contrary, you feel excited to discover something new, the dream reflects your pleasure of tackling various opportunities other than the ones you already have. Related to travel and projects, places abroad also symbolize the different choices you have in life.

If the dream is about a foreign person it may represent an aspect of you that has not been integrated into your identify. Perhaps, you are neglecting important feelings or hidden talents.

If you dream of a foreign country, the dream shows that with patience, your

wishes will come true. On the other hand, an affable foreigner portends good luck.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

FOREIGN COUNTRIES

Should you find yourself visiting, observing, holidaying or living in a foreign country in your dreams, your dream is placing the spotlight on attitudes and emotional climates that are different to yours.

Such dreams can also represent meeting an aspect of yourself that is unknown or foreign; the unfamiliar.

If you feel contented in your dream, this suggests excitement about new opportunities in waking life. If, however, you feel insecure and vulnerable, and long to return to the familiar, this is widely interpreted by both Freudians and Jungians as a desire to return to the security of the womb in times of difficulty.

Your associations, beliefs or opinions about a certain country also need to be explored. Do any aspects of your life connect with what appears in the dream? For example, have you previously visited or worked in the country featured in your dream or do you know someone who lives there? What is the main action in the dream, and what is your role in it? Are you meeting things— perhaps for the first time—that you fear in your dream; how do they make you feel? What are the symbols in the dream and can you make any connections with your waking circumstances? See also PLACES; TRAVEL.

If the foreign country was one that you have either been to and loved, or always wanted to visit, this is a sign that the attainment of your heart’s desire is closer than you think. It also means that you should keep working on it and not be discouraged in spite of any setbacks.

If the foreign country is strange, or the people unfriendly, or if it’s a country where violence, war, and other unfavorable situations are occurring, then something or someone in your life is leading you into strange and unfamiliar territory which could at the very least make you uncomfortable.

FOREIGNER / FOREIGN LANGUAGES

According to dream-lore, friendly foreigners in dreams are symbols of good luck, but a person in your dream who is foreign or who speaks an unfamiliar language may represent a part of yourself that you do not fully understand or accept. You may be neglecting important feelings or talents, or the dream may be mirroring a sense of frustration caused by problems in communicating with someone in waking life. The latter is often the case when you dream of a letter that is illegible or written in a foreign language, although such a dream could also suggest frustration with not being able to solve some difficult issue in waking life.

Whilst hearing foreign or strange languages in a dream can suggest misunderstandings, it can also be symbolic of some kind of communication from within, something important that has not yet become clear enough for us to understand or put into words.

If you pay attention to the strange language, the next stage of understanding will follow. In spiritualism, hearing strange language is communication from discarnate beings.... The Element Encyclopedia

LANGUAGE

If you find yourself being talked to in a language you don’t understand or that doesn’t make sense, the dream may tell of your concerns about missing the point in regard to some element in your waking life.

If you are speaking in a new language, this suggest that you need to broaden your horizons. Perhaps you need to take on a new challenge or embark on a new adventure.

If an interpreter appears in your dream, this may suggest that you need to have something explained to you.

If you are doing the interpreting yourself, perhaps someone in your life is relying too heavily on you in social situations and this is placing too much responsibility on you.

If your speech is broken or you cannot get the words out in your dream, this reveals insecurity about your communication skills.

If code language is involved in your dream, try to remember the code signals and see if they have any relevance to your waking life. Finally, if you or a character in your dream says something totally out of character or unexpected, this may be giving rise to something you aren’t yet ready to say to yourself or to hear. For example, if your best friend tells you that you are going to fail your driving test, perhaps this indicates that your friend isn’t as supportive of you as you like to think they are. Alternatively, these surprising words may reflect your own self-doubt, or that old issues and negative voices from your past are coming back to haunt you.... The Element Encyclopedia

LANGUAGE, FOREIGN OR STRANGE

One function of dreams is to bring aspects of our thinking or feeling, which may be ill defined, towards clarification. Foreign or strange language may therefore illustrate something which is being communi­cated to us from within, but is still not clear.

The uncon­scious, as in speaking in tongues—glossolalia—and of course in dreams, frequently moves towards clear awareness in stages.

The strange language is a halfway house, as is a dream.

If we bring focused attention to these, as explained in dream processing, the next step, clear verbal expression, can be reached. Speaking in language we are learning: the language is becoming habitual, making it possible to think in it. See speaking. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The origin of the language, if known, may have import here.

For example, if your family originated in Italv and vou dream in Italian, this may be a subconscious desire to learn more about your heritage.

The letters in some languages, like the Norse and Germanic runes and certain Hebraic characters, have very specific symbolic values.

For more insight, peruse a book on the appropriate language at your local library, or ask someone who is familiar with the tongue (see Pictographs).

If the language is unrecognized, write it phonetically in your journal for future reference. This may he a past life memory, a spiritual message, or a type of glossolalia (speaking in tongues) that can be interpreted later.

This is a symbol of unconscious messages that are not yet decipherable or understood. This interpretation applies only to a language that you do not know or that was created out of the dream world.

If you know more than one language, then dreaming in different languages is a reflection of where you are in your life and what the language in question means for you from your past. Words are the basis of all thought and all reality. When words that you do not understand show up in a dream, the unconscious is deliberately masking some information by changing the rules. Use the context of the dream to assess the height of the stakes. This would apply both to the information that is being expressed by the unconscious and to the emotional meaning attached to your reaction to being unable to decipher any literal meaning.

If you recognize the language being spoken by virtue of sounds and cadences, then apply whatever associations you have with that culture to the dream interpretation.

If the language is made-up and you can remember any specific words, sounds, or phrases, use them in your process to see if you can draw any parallels with words you know. There may be a rhythmic or phonic connection to the nonsense words of your dream. Do not be afraid of being overly literal.

If someone else is speaking to you in the dream, then the message is coming from the deep unconscious.

If you are speaking the foreign tongue yourself, it may indicate that the new information is already integrated as part of you. More investigation will likely need to be done before you will be able to understand and utilize the information being presented.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

LEARN DREAM SYMBOL LANGUAGE

Your dream and its symbols speak through the language of dream symbolism. Although that language shares similarities across dreamers, each dreamer’s subconscious mind speaks in its own personal “dialect” of dream symbolism. So in this book you’ll learn about the “standard” language of dream symbols (to the extent that there is a standard one), plus you’ll learn how to decipher your own subconscious mind’s personal symbol meanings (your personal “dialect”). The following three sections introduce the primary considerations about personal dream symbol translation to keep in mind as you explore the symbol descriptions in this book.

Personal Meaning
Because dream symbol meaning is subjective and personal to the dreamer, consider what the symbol means to you personally. To help yourself better understand its personal meaning, you could ask yourself:

  • What thoughts and feelings come up when I think of this thing?
  • How would I describe this thing to someone who has never seen it before? (See also TOOL: Caveman Explanation.)
  • How would I feel about this thing if I actually saw it in real life?
  • What would I say if someone asked for my impression of this thing?

Context
A dream symbol’s meaning can be very specific to its context in the dream. So, think about how the symbol appeared in the dream and what that may convey about its meaning. For example, pay attention to:

  • Where was the object?
  • Was there anything unusual about its location or position?
  • What was it near or surrounded by (objects, people, etc.)?
  • What was its environment (indoor or outdoor, lighting, mood, weather, etc.)?
  • (If an inanimate object) What was happening to it?
  • (If a living being) What was it doing, how, where, and with whom?
  • How were the characters (including you) viewing or relating to it?
  • How did you feel about all of the above?
  • Look Beyond the Obvious

A dream symbol often represents something beyond its obvious meaning. A rose could represent a real-life rose, but it’s much more likely to represent something else more symbolic (such as a feeling, characteristic, or event). So look beyond your symbol’s literal meaning by asking yourself, “What else could this symbol mean?”

Let Intuition Be Your Guide

  • As you work toward understanding a dream symbol, the goal is for your intuition to recognize the symbol’s true meaning. The process of reaching that your subconscious mind to reveal the symbol’s meaning, and to give your intuition a chance to recognize the meaning when you see it.
  • Whether a particular meaning from this book or elsewhere in your mind is the true meaning of your dream symbol.

(For more on intuition as a dream interpretation tool, see Recognizing Dream Symbol Meaning.)

Take the Winding Path
“When you start down the path of exploring a particular dream symbol, be willing to persevere even if the path is a winding one. You may not always know which way to go, but your intuition will guide you if you pay attention to it.

Since your goal in symbol exploration is to intuitively recognize the symbol’s true meaning, it’s a good idea to give your mind a chance to encounter that meaning so your intuition can recognize it. Sometimes the true meaning simply comes forward within your consciousness and then your intuition confirms it. However, more often you’ll need to put in a little more effort to discover it. If the true meaning isn’t evident, you can use a technique that parades various possible meanings past your “inner intuitive eye,” giving it a chance to confirm the true one. The technique can be as simple as mentally listing the meanings you associate with the symbol or reading the symbol’s description in this book. You could also use a dream analysis tool that prompts your subconscious mind to reveal the meanings it associates with the symbol, such as TOOL: Caveman Explanation, or many others in the Dream Analysis Toolkit in the first book of this series, The Curious Dreamer’s Practical Guide to Dream Interpretation....

POSTURES, MOVEMENT, BODY LANGUAGE

Even in everyday life, the way we hold and position our body, the inclination of chest and head, the movement of hands, are a means of com­munication.

The apparently intuitive information in some dreams, when investigated, can be traced to an unconscious insight into the language of the living body. We all have this ability to understand body language, but it seems to be some­thing which is inherited from past times before verbal lan­guage. It therefore remains a largely unconscious ability. In our dreams, however, it is a major factor in how the dream is structured.

If you cannot find a satisfying description below, imagine yourself making the movement or posture in the dream to see if you can define what the feeling quality is, or what you are saying non-verbally. It can often be of value to make the movement or take up the posture physically instead of in the imagination. By comparing the movement/posture with an­other one, it can help to clarify its quality.

Example: Marilyn was expenencing emotional pain con­nected with her impending divorce. Marilyn had dreamt of seeing a dinosaur standing in her path, devounng all who approached it. We explored it by having Marilyn find a body posture and movements which for her expressed the feeling of the dinosaur. In doing so Marilyn did not sense anger or aggression, but she did feel like a predator which always had to take to gain her own needs. This feeling immediately re­minded her of her family life as a child. She remembered when she was sent shopping as a very young child of three or four; as well as buying what she had been asked, she pur­chased some sweets for herself. When she arrived home she was treated as if she had done a terrible thing, and that was where she began to feel like a predator. It seemed to her as if her own needs were always gained at the expense of someone else.

‘With this awareness, she could now see that the dinosaur standing iti her path clearly related to her present situation. Bargaining to gain a realistic share of the house and property jointly owned by her husband and herself, felt to her as if she were gaining her needs at his expense, like a predator. That made her feel so awful, she was almost ready to allow her husband to take all, leaving her without house or money to start again. Her awareness of where the feelings arose from, and the unrealistic pan they played in her life, allowed her to relate to the situation with less pain and more wisdom’ (from Mind and Movement, Tony Crisp). ...

STRANGER

The interpretation of seeing and interacting with a stranger, or strangers, in your dream depends on the details of your dream and on your personal belief system. Some Eastern cultures believe that the strangers in your dreams are spirits from another dimension. These spirits may be teaching you lessons or giving you specific messages.

The more modern approach to interpreting a dream with strangers in it is that they represent different sides or unfamiliar aspects of our personality.

The best way to tell is to “check inside” of yourself and simply try to understand the message of this dream. Whether the message is coming from your unconscious or from a different reality might be irrelevant.

The lessons gained through a dream are far more important then where they came from. Just remember: The mind that dreamt the dream also knows its source and meaning (and that is YOUR own mind). See also: People... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

STRANGER

A person unknown to you is still representing a character aspect of your personality, even if his or her identity is concealed or the person is a stranger. When making an interpretation about a person you don’t know, you must focus on what you actually do know. What the person is doing in your dream and how you feel about that will give you the essence of your interpretation. Whatever message your dream is presenting you with, the fact that it comes from a stranger or a person with a concealed identity indicates that the unconscious is not quite ready to reveal what is being called into action in your current situation. More will be revealed; we learn in stages and increments and often resist change, so be prepared for initial levels of fear to come up around this type of imagery.

The unknown assailant who chases us may simply be trying to give us our forgotten lunch money or an umbrella because it is raining. When there are clear personality traits apparent and the person’s identity is unknown to you, it likely points to an area of development within your own personal makeup. An angry or aggressive stranger may point to an integration of that energy into consciousness.

A more helpful or gentle stranger indicates that softer elements are being called into prominence. Whatever end of the continuum your dream stranger is on, be prepared to consider the necessity and power of the energy he or she is embodying in the dream.

A deliberate concealment of identity can also indicate a matter of the unconscious tricking the conscious into hearing a difficult piece of information; for just as in life, it is sometimes easier to hear impactful news from a stranger than from someone we love.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

STRANGER

Your dreaming mind may often conjure up images of strangers, unknown people or people whose faces are hidden by masks as representations of the shadow, private and sometimes shocking side of your personality. This is especially the case if the strangers are inadequate or sinister in some way, or if they are burglars, intruders or criminals.

If such images appear, it is important not to ignore them as you need to acknowledge these dream figures as reflections of an aspect of yourself in order to face up to your fears.

If you do not do so, you will continually come up against feelings of insecurity and low self- esteem in waking life. The stranger in a dream represents that part of yourself that you do not know. There may be feelings of conflict or tension but you need to deal with these dark images before you can progress in waking life. Jung referred to the shadow as the dark side of a person that you would like to keep hidden—’the thing a person has no wish to be’. The shadow can be thought of as an instinctive and primitive side of your personality that you are trying to repress.

Dream strangers therefore generally represent aspects of your character that you either haven’t consciously acknowledged or that you have neglected. This is why they appear unfamiliar or strange in your dream. How these strangers look and behave will give you an important clue to the nature of the problem area.

If a sinister figure does appear in your dream, try not to avoid confronting it. Notice how it tries to control the action in your dream. Observe what negative aspects of yourself it may be addressing and try to address them in your waking life.

Self-destructive urges are less likely to overwhelm you if you are prepared to confront them.

If dream strangers represent aspects of your personality any spacemen, aliens or extraterrestrials in your dream usually indicate that you are feeling threatened by alien forces or situations. Starting a dialogue with them should help you understand them better and allay your fears of the unknown. The same applies if a foreigner appears in your dream speaking an unfamiliar language....
