The meaning of Mermaid, merman in dream | Dream interpretation

2- Mermaids and mermen arc feminine and masculine representations of the link between the darker forccs which we do not necessarily understand and the conscious self. Many stories exist of the human’s attempt to mate or link with these creatures of the sea. Most end in hurt and distress for one party or the other. This is an example of how difficult it is to integrate the two sides of our nature.

3- Each individual must bring about integration between the spiritual self and the emotional self before there can be wholeness.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

A mermaid or merman is a double symbol of our instinctual life because (1) a merperson is half animal, and (2) a merperson is at home in the water, a potent symbol of the unconscious. So a dream communication from a mermaid or merman is a message from a deeper part of ourselves.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

The mermaid and merman symbolize the ability to integrate the spiritual aspects of the personality with the emotional. In being part fish and part human, they also symbolize the evolutionary journey from pure instinct to wisdom.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Psychological / emotional perspective: Mermaids and mermen are feminine and masculine representations of the link between the darker forces – which we do not necessarily understand – and the conscious self. In dreams the mermaid epitomizes how difficult it is to integrate the two sides of our nature. This lack of integration can result in capriciousness.

The merman, however, is said to be less ‘intrigued’ by humans so, therefore, represents unification, but in a way that is more isolated.

Mermaid / Merman | Dream Interpretation

The keywords of this dream: Mermaid Merman


MERMAID

A magical water spirit who has much in common with the spirits of the forest, but who lures young men into the depths, where they drown.

The dreamer will recognize in the mermaid his desire for and fear of the feminine. Also addressed is a man s desire to identify with femininity and his fear of doing so.

The water spirit mermaid is enticing men to follow her into her kingdom, where, “under a glittering surface, are hidden inexplorable depths,” according to C. G. Jung, who saw the realm of the water spirits as a symbol of the unconscious. So the mermaid is a symbol of life and inner maturity, a spirit who “walks” along boundaries. Young men dream about mermaids when they reach manhood; young girls, when they become women. In another sense, the mermaid is without a soul and therefore is after the soul of humans. According to Jung, the water spirit is at the instinctual stage, the pre-stage of the feminine being, or anima.

Also, the mermaid is a being in need of liberation: since she lives in water, she is drowning in her emotions—and she has no sexual organs.

Male water spirits seldom appear in dreams.

(They are usually cruel, ugly, old, and comparable to goblins.)... Little Giant Encyclopedia

MERMAID

(1) For a woman, it might express doubts about her femininity, or fears of (sexual) frigidity. In such a case, it may be that your partner is not right for you.

(2) In a man’s dream it might represent an idealized image of women (which may inhibit relations with actual women). Are you frightened of sex?

(3) For a man, it might represent the siren, which might actually symbolize the anima as the part of the psyche that will take you - safely - into the depths of your unconscious, and thereby heighten your self- knowledge.

(4) It may also, for a man, express fears of being ‘drowned’ by the feminine or by the unconscious. See also Seduction, and Introduction, page 49.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

MERMAID

The mermaid is a mythological creature with the torso of a woman and the lower half of a fish. In this way, she is an archetypal figure that embodies the feminine principle coupled with the capacity to connect to the unconscious mind and the emotional realms. In modern media, the mermaid has been transformed into something lovely and beguiling; however, her origins are dark and are associated with peril, death, and seduction.

A dream that features a mermaid should be considered aspirational, and you must keep in mind all of her qualities, light and dark, when formulating an interpretation. In any case, such a dream is connecting you to the spiritual side of your nature.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

MERMAID / MERMAN / SIREN

The sea temptress combines beauty with vanity and lures sailors to their doom.

If you are a man and you dream of mermaids and sirens, this may represent the image of a woman who you feel you could love, but who may also reject and destroy you. To dream that you follow her siren song suggests shallow will-power, or being easily misled by lust and base passion. So potent is this myth that the word siren is today used to describe a heartless, treacherous but irresistibly seductive woman. Alternatively, the mermaid may represent your anima, the feminine part of your personality, who, by leading you out to sea, is encouraging you to explore the depths of your own emotions.

Traditionally, the mermaid or merman belongs to the sea as well as the land and this symbolizes an ability to be deeply emotional and deeply practical at the same time.

In a woman’s dream, the mermaid is thought to represent a love rival. Finally, mermaids and mermen are feminine and masculine images of the link between your conscious self and darker forces you may not understand. Many stories tell of the difficulties of mating with a creature from the sea, showing how difficult it can be to unite the two sides of our nature.... The Element Encyclopedia
