The meaning of Mentor in dream | Dream interpretation


[DREAM IMAGES: JEDI; MASTER; TUTOR]

Mentors do more than just teach; they pass on wisdom and refine their students’ character. In dreams, they represent aspects of yourself you can trust, or people you can rely on. In its shadow aspect, however, the mentor can take on an overbearing attitude that is more about imposing control than imparting wisdom. They can appear, for example, in dreams about people who undermine you or refuse to help you for no good reason.

HALLUCINATIONS

1- When dreaming, there is an hallucinatory quality about everything that we see. We usually accept what we experience as real and in the actual dream state do not question. Scenes can change as quickly as the blink of an eye, faces can change, we can be looking at one thing then a few seconds later realise we are looking at something completely different. This is totally acceptable within the dream reality.

It is only when we consider the dream afterwards that we realise how odd this may be. During dreams, things can take on qualities of other objects and of other feelings. Dreams can crcate a reality of their own, they do the unexpected - which in normal waking life would be totally illogical and surreal. Within this dream world we need to take a note of what is happening. We do not watch these with amusement, it seems simply that we observe what is going on. Even our own actions can take on an oddness. We may be doing things in a dream which in waking life we would never expect ourselves to do. Freed from the logical quality that mentors our ordinary everyday life, we can be liberated to create a totally different awareness of our own abilities, of our thought patterns and even our own past. We can often dream that we have done things in the past which we have never done, or we can prepare ourselves to do things in the future which again we would never expect to do.

2- Psychologically freeing the mind so it can ‘roam’ under its own speed allows hidden memories, images and thoughts to surface in such a way that we can handle the input when perhaps in real life we may not have been able to do so. We create a reality which suits an action, rather than creating an action which suits the reality.

For instance, an abused child may displace the activity into some kind of response that would be acceptable, not allowing the reality of the abuse to come through until such times as he or she was able to come to terms with it.

3- The hallucination that we experience in dreams can also be direct messages from the unconscious.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

POPE

1- Often to meet the Pope in a dream is to meet the side of ourselves which has developed a code of behaviour based on our religious beliefs. He may be benign or judgmental depending on how the figure of the Pope was presented in childhood.

2- The Pope often appears in dreams as a substitute for the father, or as a personification of God.

3- Our spiritual mentor or Higher Self will sometimes be seen as the Pope.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

YARN

1- Yarn in the sense of knitting yarn or twine often signifies our ability to crcate order out of chaos. In olden limes it suggested spinning, an archetypal symbol for life, and often in dreams it is this image that is portrayed. We fashion our lives out of what we are given.

2- A yarn - as in a talc or storv - is most often to do with our sense of historv or of continuitv.

To be being told a yarn or story links with our need for heroes and heroines, and perhaps our need for a mentor.

3- The myths and stories of the old heroes who undertook their own spiritual journey can help us identify a strategy for life.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

TORTURE / TORMENT / TEASING

Psychological / emotional perspective: Being teased in dreams may reveal a fear of becoming a laughing stock.

If we are being physically tortured in dreams, we need to look at the other images and personalities in the dream to discover what significance such action has in our everyday life. It may be that we tend to put ourselves in the position of victim without realizing it. Torment has a hugely emotional charge behind it and reveals an element of sadism in our dream tormentor. This can amount to persecution and is the sort of dream that will surface in post-traumatic stress disorder.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

ROPE

General Meaning: Rope, like chain, speaks of bondage and of being restricted. In a positive context though, it is a picture of strength and security.

(As in the threefold cord that cannot be broken) • Positive: To dream of being tied to your spouse or to someone you love speaks of unity with the Lord.

• A ship is tied to the dock with a rope, representing security.

• A threefold cord speaks of strength and unity. It can be a very positive thing if it is tying a couple together in marriage.

• I recall a vision when my husband Craig and I were receiving ministry about being married. Apostle Les saw a vision of us tied together with strong ropes that could not be broken.

• Because my parents had been divorced, I feared the same thing in my own life.

The Lord made me a strong promise that I had nothing to fear. I am glad to say that our marriage is going stronger than ever! • With my husband, myself and the Lord, we are a picture of a threefold cord that could not be broken.

• Ecclesiastes 4:12 And if a one is overwhelmed, two can stand together; a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Negative: To dream of having your hands tied is a picture of being restricted and unable to do the things you need to do.

• Being tied by rope to something could also indicate that you are being bound by whatever that object or person represents in your dreams.

• Being bound by a rope can speak of the work of the enemy to bind you and prevent you from doing what the Lord wants you to do, just like Delilah bound Samson.

• Judges 15:13 ...And they bound him with two new cords, and brought him up from the rock.

• A rope attaching you to someone else could speak of a spiritual bond that needs to be broken. In the spirit, you might see a person tied with cords that are in turn attached to various people.

• If the people you see are family members, then that rope is a picture of generational bondage.

• You can also see this in relation to past mentors or friends that you have not fully let go yet.

If you see this vision, then the Lord is telling you to let those people go and to move on.

COMPASS

Your unconscious may be showing you the way, either because you are not satisfied with the direction your life is going or because you need time to reorient. This dream manifests that the haze you feel will end soon.

If the compass deviates in the dream and guidance is uncertain, you may have to change route. Other elements may appear in the dream suggesting alternatives for the future.

According to feng shui, the eight directions of the compass symbolize eight different qualities. The south is fame, fortune, and recognition; southwest, marriage, and happiness in love and relationships; west, children and creativity; northwest, charitable people, mentors, and network connections; north, career success; northeast, knowledge, academy, and introspection; east, family, the elderly, people with authority, and health; and southeast, finally, wealth and prosperity....

MAGICIAN / HYPNOTIST

If someone transforms into a sinister magician or evil sorcerer in your dream, it is likely that your dreaming mind has identified someone you know in waking life with the archetypal black magician, a selfobsessed, power-hungry person who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. On the other hand if the person in dream materialized as a witch doctor, shaman, white magician, guru or high priest, this suggests that you are in urgent need of advice and inspiration in waking life. Perhaps there is an older person in your life whom you regard as a mentor and whose advice you should follow. However, if your dreaming mind conjured up an image of a conjurer, hypnotist or stage magician whose success owes little to magic and everything to sleight of hand, this image may be warning you of someone or something in your life that is not trustworthy or is manipulating you in some way....

GHOST OF SOMEONE WHO HAS DIED

Some believe that the ghosts in their dreams are real representations of the dead. This is an unlikely explanation of such dreams. More likely, to dream of the ghost of someone who is departed represents a part of you that is unclear and that you do not understand. Ghosts can also be all that you have left of loved ones who are no longer alive, so they can offer you comfort by appearing in your dreams, representing a welcome opportunity to speak once again to that special person and to come to terms with the fact that they are gone. To dream of the ghost of someone who has died might also represent something that you wanted that is no longer in your reach. This dream is telling you to move on. Another explanation is that your unconscious was pointing out an uncomfortable truth that your conscious mind is working hard to repress, just as the ghost of his father appeared to Shakespeare’s Hamlet to tell him something that he may already have known—that his father was murdered by Hamlet’s new stepfather.

To dream of touching a ghost and having it disappear indicates that you are trying to confront and come to terms with painful memories. Demonic ghost images with no face or dark shadows (’dementors’, if you are a Harry Potter fan) may represent your negative tendencies, unpleasant parts of personality or your ’shadow’. Old superstition-based dream interpretations say that dreaming of friendly ghosts is a lucky omen, and that you should be receiving unexpected good luck. On the other hand, if you were very frightened by the ghost in your dream, then others will try to impose their will on you and you must be vigilant in order to stand up to it....

ARCHETYPES (ARCHETYPAL DREAM IMAGES)

While the notion of archetypes is at least as old as Plato, it is most familiar to the modern world through the work of Carl Jung, the prominent Swiss psychotherapist. In contrast to his mentor Sigmund Freud, Jung divided the unconscious mind into two subdivisions, the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious (which he also referred to as the objective psyche). The personal unconscious is shaped by our personal experiences, whereas the collective unconscious represents our inheritance of the collective experience of humankind. This storehouse of humanity’s experiences exists in the form of archetypes (or prototypes).

The archetypes predispose us to subconsciously organize our personal experiences in certain ways. We are, for instance, predisposed to perceive someone in our early environment as a father because of the father archetype. If a person’s biological father is absent during childhood, someone else (e.g., an older brother) is assimilated into this archetype, providing concrete images for the father complex (the reflection of the father archetype in the personal unconscious).

Archetypes are not specific images or symbols. They are more like invisible magnetic fields that cause iron filings to arrange themselves according to certain patterns. For example, Jung postulated the existence of a self archetype, which constitutes the unconscious basis for our ego—our conscious self-image or self-concept. In dreams, this self is represented in a variety of ways, often in the form of a circle or mandala (a circular diagram used as an aid to meditation in Hinduism and Buddhism). The self can also be represented by surrogate symbols, such as four of almost anything (according to Jung, four is the number of whole- ness and hence a symbol of the self), a pattern Jung referred to as a quaternity. These concrete manifestations of elusive archetypes are referred to as archetypal images or, when they appear in dreams, as archetypal dream images.

Jung asserted that much of world mythology and folklore represents manifestations of the collective unconscious. He based this assertion on his discovery that the dreams of his patients frequently contained images with which they were completely unfamiliar, but which seemed to reflect symbols that could be found somewhere in the mythological systems of world culture. Jung further found that if he could discover the specific meaning of such images in their native culture, he could better understand the dreams in which they occurred. The process of seeking such meanings is referred to as amplification.... Dreampedia
