The meaning of Maze / labyrinth in dream | Dream interpretation


A portent of uncertain times ahead, when you literally won’t know if you’re coming or going.

If the dreamer found his or her way out and wasn’t particularly concerned about it, then whatever problems you face will be set right and you can get on with your life. But if the dreamer was frightened, panicked, and kept running into dead ends, then the dream is telling him or her that it’s vital to calm down, try to relax, and face whatever appears to be stopping him from doing what he wants.

A change of direction is likely to be necessary.

1- On a purely practical level, the labyrinth appearing in dreams signifies the need to explore the hidden side of our own personality. With its many twists, turns and potential blind alleys it is a very potent representation of the human being. Within the labyrinth one meets and overcomes the difficulties in life which could impede progress.

2- Psychologically; in undertaking our own heroic journey, we must at some point go through some kind of labyrinth experience.

It is undertaken at a point when we must travel into the differing areas of our subconscious and come to terms with our fears and doubts, before confronting our own Shadow (See Introduction). In dreams the labyrinth can be suggested by any dream which has us exploring a scries of underground passages.

It is held by some to be an exploration of the hidden feminine.

3- Spiritually the labyrinth experience marks a watershed.

It is a symbol for the transition stage between the physical and practical world and a deeper understanding of all mankind.

The route in one type of Labyrinth is ‘unicursal’ that is, it goes by a straightforward route which covers maximum ground straight to the centre and out again.

The second type is designed with the intention to confuse, and has many blind alleys and unexpected twists. This represents spiritual progress, through having to work out the key or code. Many trials and tribulations arc met and overcome or negotiated on the path to attainment. Each individual will undertake his or her own route to the centre of his existence....

Symbol: The labyrinth is a symbol of human life in general: its challenges, delays, and complications.

Vision: Looking at a labyrinth: you are in over your head! You have been sidetracked and have lost perspective. Stumbling around in a labyrinth: you are looking for the security of your childhood; you would do better to search for an exit from your current behavior.

Depth Psychology: In the search for self-knowledge, you have met the chaos inside you (maybe in your unconscious?). It confuses and frightens you. Look for the exit!... Dreamers Dictionary

LABYRINTH

(1) A labyrinth is a symbol of the unconscious. Is there a frightening monster guarding something valuable at the centre of the labyrinth? You must come to terms with the frightening contents of your unconscious if you are to uncover your true self.

(2) It may be a symbol of mother. Getting out of the labyrinth means liberation from a smothering mother-attachment.

(3) Jung described the ‘individuation’ process as a ‘labyrinth’ path, meaning that progress towards self-discovery and self-fulfilment does not follow a straight line, but involves periodic returns to earlier starting-points (for individuation).... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

The labyrinth represents obsessions without solution and vicious circles that often weigh us down.

If you dream of this figure, it means that you have doubts and indecision. It could be a reference to lack of experience or immaturity.

If you manage to escape the labyrinth, maybe you will resolve your problems. In the case that someone accompanies you in searching for the exit, the dream warns that you must be careful of your alliances.

If you rescue others from the labyrinth, the dream is positive and means you are in control of your life.

LABYRINTH

In its essence, a labyrinth is a confusing and mazelike structure found in the underbelly of a building. As a symbol, it represents a journey to the very center of something in which the journeyer can get quite lost and turned around.

A labyrinth can be found as a symbol in many spiritual and religious settings as a pattern imbedded into a floor where an individual goes on a symbolic hero’s journey. In a dream, the interpretation is the same, whether it is a freeform hidden and shadowed labyrinth or a beautiful symbol of such an inward journey. You are engaged in a deep exploration of the inner self where confusion can occur and changes of direction are imminent.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

LABYRINTH AND MAZE

A labyrinth is a complex system of paths and tunnels in which it is easy to get lost. On one level, the appearance of a labyrinth in your dream suggests the need to explore the hidden side of your nature; the twists, turns, trials and tribulations of the labyrinth are a powerful symbol of the life journey towards the center of your existence. Within the labyrinth you can meet and overcome challenges and obstacles in life that prevent you from moving forward. From a psychological point of view, we must all take the heroic journey through the labyrinth of experience and come to terms with our fears and anxieties before confronting our shadow. Any dream image that has underground passages suggests a labyrinth. Some believe it represents an exploration of the feminine principle.

Jung saw the dark, enclosed labyrinth as a symbol of the tortuous depths of the unconscious and a dream of entering it as a voyage of self-discovery or an attempt to locate a deeply buried emotion. The void at the center of the labyrinth may suggest despair but it can also symbolize serenity and calm. A labyrinth is an archetype with which you can have direct experience. It is a metaphor for your life’s journey. As in the Greek myth of Theseus who entered King Minos’ labyrinth in Crete to slay the Minotaur, your descent into the unconscious, hidden aspects of your nature may involve confronting impulses that threaten your personal security and well-being.

Mazes are often confused with labyrinths but they are quite different. Labyrinths tend to symbolize the quest for knowledge and freedom, whereas mazes mirror the general confusion that may be fogging your sense of purpose in waking life. A maze is first of all open to the light, whereas a labyrinth is in the dark; furthermore, a maze has numerous entry points whereas a labyrinth only has one. A maze is like a puzzle to be solved, possessing twists, turns and blind alleys. It is a task that requires logical, sequential, analytical activity to find the correct path into the maze and out. A labyrinth, on the other hand, involves intuition and creativity. With a labyrinth there is only one choice to be made. The choice is to enter or not to enter. With mazes there are many choices to be made, with many entrances and exits.

Dead ends and cul-de-sacs present riddles to be solved. Mazes challenge the choice-making part of yourself.

In dreams, a maze can therefore reflect the difficulty in finding a direction to follow in life. No one can predict what is right or wrong, so you may have to rely on your instincts. If, in your dream, you have a map, chart or password to help you navigate your maze, this may reassure you that you are on the right path. Mazes can also often portray a confusion of ideas and feelings, the difficulty in finding your way through the mass of apparently irrational emotions and images arising from within, or the variety of opinions and seemingly authoritative sources of information with which the modern world bombards you. You may dream of a maze of corridors, for example, during periods in which your life seems particularly complicated and you are faced with choices and decisions. In this sense, the maze represents an attempt to find your way through conscious thoughts, opinions and doubts, to an opinion or mindset that is yours alone.

If you enlisted the aid of a ladder to help you get out of your maze, your dreaming mind may have been suggesting that you take a more logical, rational overview of your situation.

If you found a way out of your maze, this suggests that you will find a way to break free; but if you found yourself ending up in the same place whatever path you took, this could be reflecting your sense in waking life of going round in circles, covering the same ground or not being able to make a breakthrough. Bear in mind that tunnels and paths in dreams represent transitions, and entrances represent new directions; perhaps you have been so overwhelmed with emotion and confusion that you have not seen the opportunities already being presented to you. ...

LABYRINTH MAZE

According to Jung, the enclosed labyrinth is a symbol of the unconscious, and a dream of entering a labyrinth represents rapid change and a journey towards self-discovery. As in the Greek myth of Theseus, who entered King Minos’ labyrinth in Knossos to kill the Minotaur, descent into the unconscious may sometimes involve confronting impulses we would rather ignore because they challenge or threaten us.

If you see a maze in your dream, it may also indicate the need to find direction in life and the skills needed to negotiate change.

If a map or chart of a maze appears in your dream, this may be a reassuring sign that you are on the right path.... The Element Encyclopedia

The maze could represent your current mental outlook.

A maze is a frightening and confusing place.

If in your dream you are trapped in a maze and are having difficulty getting to the end, then you need to stop and consider your current emotional and psychological status. I don’t mean to suggest anything is terribly wrong. Simply speaking, are you often confused and unsure of which way to go? If you are facing many hard decisions this dream is a good indicator that you need to step back and look at the entire picture. Edgar Cayce said that being in a maze in a dream may be symbolic of an “emotionally disorganized” person. At times we are all emotionally disorganized and confused, but admitting this dream’s message is step in the right direction.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

MAZE

From a mythological point of view, the image of the maze is closely tied to the Greek hero Theseus and to Ariadne, who loves him. As legend has it, in order to slay the virgin-devouring monster in the center of the maze of Crete, Ariadne gives to Theseus a magical red thread that will help him find his way out of the maze after he has slain the monster.

The maze symbolizes the womb of the Earth Mother and the cosmic order, which each of us has to create within ourself. And that is your task! The path is like a maze; after many twists and turns you finally reach your goal, where you can fulfill your obligations and responsibilities, find your shadow, and come to terms with it. Every time you dream about a maze you are challenged to come to terms with the monster within yourself.

On the other hand, the image of the maze points to a mother complex: if you cannot let go of the feminine, you are lost in it, which means the masculine in you loses its identity. And if this masculine identity is devoured by the feminine, the feminine cannot find its own identity because it doesn’t have access to it, and you cannot find your way out of the maze.

The symbol of the maze probably goes back to observations made about how the sun or the moon is traveling across the sky. In the center of the maze resides death, where the sun and the moon are at their lowest point. After we have met death, we leave the maze in the same way as Theseus. Our modern world, the metropolitan big city, the asphalt jungle, where people are easily getting lost and feeling trapped, is often compared with the maze. What is addressed here is the idea that our lives have become so complex that it is difficult for us to find our way. See Food (stored), Thread, Dragon.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

1- A maze often represents a confusion of ideas and feelings. There are conflicting urges and opinions and we often discover that in attempting to find our way through the maze we have learnt something about our own courage, our own ability to meet problems. Often there is the apparently irrational fear and doubt that arises from not being able to find our wav in and out of the maze.

This can allow us to release feelings of self-doubt and fear.

2- Psychologically; the maze may- represent the variety of opinions and authoritative beliefs that we come up against in our ordinary, everyday world. We may be trying to find our own way through this mass of detail and we picture it in a dream as actually trying to find our way through a maze.
