RECLUSE

Hermit. Being one-sided, grief, longing for social contact, but also wisdom (see the Tarot card of “The Hermit.”) The hermit is lonely, or alone in the sense of being one with oneself, being a person who can be trusted and asked for advice.

If you remember your hermit dream, talk to the hermit, ask him your question, and you will get an answer that comes from your own center. Since time immemorial, the hermit has been considered a signpost, guiding you through everyday troubles and darkness.

The hermit can bring you warmth, affection, brilliance, and wisdom.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

ROSE

A symbol of Venus—love and devotion.

The contradiction of blossom and thorn.

The rose plays the same role in the West that the lotus plays in the Orient. Both blossom, producing many thousands of petals, and represent the highest stage of consciousness.

The rose is often a symbol of the self. As a well-known symbol of love, it points to the dreamer’s feeling of security and suggests that he should be more open to love.

The Greek word rodor for rose came from the ancient Greek word for “flowing,” which may have been coined to convey the flow of fragrance from this flower. But this never-ending flow of fragrance from the rose also shortens its life, causing it to wilt rapidly. Because this magnificently flowering, fragrant blossom wilts so fast, it is also considered a symbol of death.

The rose also points to the world beyond, which is the reason that the Catacombs in Rome are decorated with garlands of roses.

The rose also is the harbinger of death in the Oraclesy and it is reported that a few days before their death, bishops would find a white rose on their chair.

The belief in the death-announcing rose has influenced customs in England and Germany, where people have been reluctant to bring roses to a sick person. And if a rose bush produced a green rose—that is, when the petals turned green—as English folklore had it, a family member would die.

It is not only in England that the rose is connected with death. As far back as ancient Rome, every year a festival of the roses was celebrated where the dead were honored. Graves were decorated with wreaths made from roses.

Since time immemorial, what happens in the presence of the rose is not talked about. In antiquity, when a rose was suspended above the table, the meal was taken “sub rosa,” as it was called then, which means that absolutely nothing from the conversation was repeated after the meal.

The early Christians took up this symbolic tradition: the presence of a rose indicated that silence was to be observed when heathens were among them.

The rose as the symbol for silence continued into the 18th century, when, for instance, wooden roses were carved into the woodwork of the confessional and roses were also included in the stucco of the halls of the court.

The rose, like the lotus, is considered the perfect flower, which is one of the reasons why the Christian Church declared it to be the image of wisdom. This was instrumental in the rose becoming a symbol of Christ. Mary is also depicted as a rose, but a rose without thorns, because in Christian symbolism the thorns of the rose indicate sin, and Mary was free of sin.

The rose has something very mystical about it. Praying the rosary is considered meditation.

The Sufis pray with a drop of rose fragrance dabbed on the area of the “third eye,” because it is said that the rose cleanses and strengthens the spirit. In ancient Greece a wreath of roses was already thought to strengthen the mind.

The Roman Emperor wore a wreath of roses for the same reason. Romans wore wreaths made from roses during decadent outdoor feasts, because they hoped the roses would minimize the effects of too much drinking.

The rose as the image of a clear mind was also known to the alchemists, who connected the rose to the idea of deliverance. In Dante’s Paradiso the small group of saved sinners is pictured in the form of a white rose above which angels circle like bees. That the way to salvation is possible only through love is perhaps the most important lesson of the rose, the flower originally dedicated to Aphrodite, goddess of love. But that the rose also symbolizes flesh and blood is seen in the fact that Dionysus also claimed the rose to be his.

Time and again we hear about a rose bush that never stops blooming; about rose branches in a vase that for 70 years produced white blossoms; and about how the food for the poor that, in the basket of saints, is transformed into roses.

For those interested in the magic of the rose, we might also mention the Pentagram of the Rose.

If you connect the center of each petal with the center of the petal that comes after the next, you will form a pentagram, the foot of the Druids, the old magic figure that Faust wanted to use to overcome Satan.

The Greeks considered the long-lived, five-leaved rose bush, with the imprint of a pentagram, to be the symbol of the cycle of the Cosmos, which, according to Aristotle, is determined by the five elements (fire, water, earth, air, and ether). Also, the Rosicrucians see the rose as a symbol of hidden wisdom, using it as a symbol in their cross.

The color of the rose is also important.

A wilted rose is a sign of a relationship gone bad. According to Jung, the rose is always the symbol for wholeness, representing, in the form of the mandala, a symbol for the order of the world.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

TOILET

The zone of the root chakra, where the Kundalini resides. This image may point to the relief of undigested leftovers, problems one has worked with.

The suggestion here is to “let go.”

From time immemorial, the toilet has been seen as a dark and scary place—in dreams, all places connected to natural functions are demonized.

It is the place of forbidden sexuality—self-gratification and homosexuality—a place full of danger and frightening activities.

It is a place where ghosts and devils do their bad deeds, and the reason why toilets in the past were always outside.

It is a place of taboos, of secrets and forbidden things, a place where budding sexuality and puberty fantasies run amuck.

This dream image also expresses the finality of nature. On one hand, it addresses everything that is transitory and points out that everything material will pass on and has no value. On the other hand, it addresses the meaning of accomplishment, completion. It is, again, an example of the alchemistic idea that gold can be made out of feces. In one sense, the toilet is the place where products are transformed. Such dream images almost always point to a necessary change: you must let go of something, while, at the same time, you must produce something positive. In Norse fables, King Olaf warns his guests not to go to the toilet alone during the night, because they might end up in a dangerous adventure with the Devil.

The toilet has also been considered the place of ghosts.

According to Jung, it is the place of the highest creativity.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

OATS

1- Oats in the form of porridge signify an almost ‘magical’ food.

Bccause they have been used since time immemorial as a staple food, they represent warmth and comfort.

2- Wild oats obviously have a connection in people’s minds with sexual satisfaction and freedom.

To dream of sowing grain suggests that we arc expecting to reap a benefit from a situation at a later date.

3- Because oats arc a very ‘humble’ yet also a very satisfying food, to dream of them indicates the need for spiritual sustenance, and perhaps the desire to revert to a more simplistic outlook on life.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

SARCOPHAGUS

FLAGS

(see Locations, Pictographs)

A means of self-identification. What image appears on the flag, and what does it say about your true self?

Battered flags indicate some type of war being waged, often on an emotional level. Raising flags represents honor and remembrance of traditions.

Flags flying at half-mast represent a literal or figurative death, or some type of memorial. This can be circumstantial too, like the death of a relationship, or the ending of a job.

Allegiance and devotion. In what condition does the flag appear? If torn in two, this can represent divided loyalty or a conflict of interest. Also note the country, state, or city the flag represents for more insight.... The Language of Dreams

STATUE

Dreams of a statue signify stillness, coldness, that you are memorializing someone or putting them on a pedestal, or honoring a precious moment that is frozen in time. Alternatively, this dream could be showing you that you have distanced yourself from your feelings and are just going through the motions.

It is time to gently let your defenses melt and realize that you cannot heel what you cannot feel. See Robot or Mannequin.... Strangest Dream Explanations

LEVELS / LAYERS

A level in sacred architecture represents knowledge out of the norm. All religions are based on worshipping a cosmic order, which means that a key aspect of religion is trying to recreate this order, something we often try to do in dreams.

A stupa, for instance, a memorial instigated by buddha himself, is essentially made up of the following five levels: a) a square base b) a hemispherical dome c) a conical spire d) a crescent moon e) a circular disc each of these components is rich in spiritual significance and is identified with one of the five cosmic elements of creation. These are, from the base up, earth, water, fire, air and space.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

SNAKES

Snakes are one of the most powerful dream symbols known to humankind. They have been both revered and feared since time immemorial. They represent sexual power, resurrection, healing, initiation and knowledge.

• All snakes shed their skin signifying transformation and regeneration. Look at what you need to change and let go of in your life and what needs to be reborn.

• Is there a “snake in the grass” in your life? Are you feeling venomous? If you’re terrified of snakes in real life you may dream of them in response to this phobia.... The Premier in Dream Dictionary

FEATHERS

Like wings, feathers symbolize, since immemorial times, spirituality, imagination, and thought. They also express our desire to show warmth and tenderness to someone. In oneiric terms, feathers predict success, achieving goals, and overcoming difficulties. Therefore, such images should encourage the person to jump into action.

If the feather is floating in the air it denotes your desire to ascend in spiritual knowledge or increase your intellectual ambition. Its lightness also represents the good condition of your heart and pleasures that you enjoy in life. The message is clear: you should get carried away, like the feather, by the fortunate air stream that you currently enjoy. (See BIRD)

Many cultures such as the Incas or Native Americans wore feathered headdresses to represent spiritual authority and the wisdom they possessed.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

HEN

Since immemorial times, the hen is a symbol of superficiality because of its clucking and passivity.

It is no coincidence that the hen is associated with rumors, whispers, and slander. Therefore, the presence of a hen in your dreams may suggest that someone is making malicious comments about you behind your back. A totally different sense arises if you dream of a hen laying an egg. In these cases, the dream images portend a profit in short time. This dream can also be attributed to excessive concern for your partner, children, or friends to the point of becoming a “mother hen.”... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

WINGS

Wings symbolize, since immemorial times, spirituality, imagination, and freedom. Therefore, already in ancient Greece, they appeared in some fabulous animals such as Pegasus or the snakes of Ceres. On the contrary, according to Christian symbolism, wings are the sun that always illuminates the intelligence of the just. In oneiric terms, wings predict success, achieving goals, and overcoming difficulties. Therefore, such images should encourage the person to jump into action (it is time to take flight). Finally, wings are also a symbol that appears before great travels. Since they also represent the imagination and knowledge, dreaming of wings predicts positive results on upcoming tests or examinations you face.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

HEALING DREAMS

There is a long tradition of dreams being a resource for physical and psychological healing. The ancient Greek god Aesculapius was believed to come to people in their sleep to offer healing through their dreams. The sick and wounded would travel from far away places to sleep in the temple of Aesculapius to let the healer enter their dreams and heal them. The Greek philosopher Aristotle believed that premonitory dreams of sickness could be caused by the dreamer’s unconscious recognition of the symptoms. He postulated that dreams may be premonitions of an illness coming from within the body, where some ’unconscious’ mind recognized early symptoms that had not yet come to the attention of the ’waking self’. The Iroquois Amerindians used a social form of dream therapy and one of the earliest recorded instances of such healing is the famous story in the Old Testament, when Joseph revealed the meaning of dreams to Pharaoh.

Sigmund Freud pioneered the use of dreams in therapy, bringing them to widespread attention, but many other approaches have been developed since then. The common feature for people who use dreams as therapeutic tools for physical and emotional healing is that dreams can empower them; they feel in touch with a powerful inner process that they believe is working actively for their own good.

Since time immemorial, people have created special places in which to sleep and dream. The dreaming chamber on the island of Malta is one example, but ancient dream temples can be found all over the world. These places were meant to ’incubate’ wise, deep dreams that would bring guidance and healing to the dreamer. Most of us do not have a dream temple located conveniently nearby; but the idea of receiving valuable, healing dreams is an appealing one, so here are four simple steps for creating a dream temple anywhere you like.

Find or create a special place for dreaming
For those of us fortunate enough to have more than enough rooms in our living space, the answer is simple: make one of those rooms— perhaps a guest room that is rarely used—into a dream place. Furnish it sparklingly, but make sure that the bed is comfortable. For the majority of us who don’t have a room to spare, we need to be a little bit more creative. Clear some space in a room in which you are comfortable and designate it as your dream place. All the time, keep in mind that you are preparing your sleeping space to facilitate your dreaming.

Prepare yourself
You are going to be welcoming dreams in a way that you don’t ordinarily do, so treat the experience as special from the outset. You might want to take a long bath. Make yourself comfortable. Eat lightly, if at all, for dinner. It’s probably best if you don’t consume alcohol or smoke the day before your dream incubation. As you go through your activities, keep in mind that you are preparing yourself to welcome dreams.

Focus on dreaming
Throughout your day, you are simply preparing yourself to be more receptive to dreams. Focus on dreaming.

If you have a particular issue in your life, you might tell yourself to ask for guidance in your dream.

Sweet dreams
This is not a one-shot exploration. Try it for a few days or even for a week—or for as long as you like. ... The Element Encyclopedia
