PAINTING

1- Often in waking life we will not recognisc our own creative ability; and to be painting in a dream may alert us to other talents we have not realised we possess. We may not actually have the ability to paint successfully in everyday life.

To be looking at paintings in dreams indicates that we are questioning or paying attention to ideas and concepts of which we have not been consciously aware.

Painting as in decorating suggests we arc making recognisable changes how we think and feel.

2- Bccausc painting has such a lot to do with self-expression, the way that we are painting in a dream may be important. If, for instance, we are painting miniatures we may need to concentrate on detail.

If we are painting large pictures we may need to adopt a more global perspective. Colour in a painting is also important (see Colour).

3- We are creating a spiritual scenario.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

SHELLS

1- In dreams a shell represents the defences we use in order to prevent ourselves from being hurt. We can create a hard shell in response to previous hurt, or a soft shell which would indicate that we are still open to being hurt. Shells were also once a unit of currency and in dreams can still be seen as this.

2- A shell carries within it so much symbolism. It can be seen as a magical symbol which holds within it the power of transformation.

The spiral of the shell suggests involution and evolution (going inwards and coming outwards).

The ability to shelter is also symbolised, and being a receptacle it also links with the feminine, emotional side of nature.

3- Spiritually a shell is a miniature representation of the process of life and death.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

PAINTING

To be looking at paintings or painting in a dream suggests that you are paying attention to new ideas, and making changes in the way you think and feel. It may also refer to the need to take note of the details of a certain situation in your life.

Painting has a lot to do with self-expression, and what you are painting and the colors you are using are important.

If you are painting a miniature, perhaps you need to concentrate on small details.

If you are painting a nature scene, perhaps you need to spend more time in the fresh air.

If you are painting larger pictures, perhaps you need to see the larger picture. The actual image that you are painting in your dream may symbolize the way that you are visualizing your current situation in your waking life.

If you are painting as in decorating, this could suggest making changes in the way you feel about yourself. It could also represent changes in your appearance or lifestyle. See also COLORS; PLACES.... The Element Encyclopedia

FAIRY TALES

Fairy tales are full of rich psychological symbolism that expresses our innermost fears and dreams. Beginning with the fathers of the field, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, numerous psychoanalysts have turned to fairy tales in an effort to understand the human mind. Just as many fairy tales hinge upon a revelation of the truth about those who have been somehow disguised, so too fairy tales cut to the essence of adult identity. Freud suspected that dreams and fairy tales stemmed from the same place, and the relaxation of inhibition that occurs in the dream state is also true of many storytellers. So fairy tales might prove, as with dreams, to be windows opening into the unconscious. (Indeed, many fairy tales include dream-states as important plot points.) For Freud, fairy tales are rife with wish-fulfillment fantasies and complicated sexual undercurrents.

As far as Jung was concerned, the ‘collective unconscious’ that lies at the core of his work, and which he believed is shared by all human beings, is revealed through archetypes, forms and symbols found in ample quantity in fairy tales. Jungian therapists study fairy tales to help analyze the dreams of their patients. Jung’s disciples have gone on to interpret fairy tales as lives in miniature, suggesting, for example, that each character within a tale may represent an aspect of human personality.

More recently, perhaps the best-known—and certainly the most widely- quoted—psychologist to incorporate fairy tales into their practice is Bruno Bettelheim, who published Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales in 1976. Bettelheim argued that fairy tales are an important tool for children learning to navigate reality and survive in a world ruled by adults. The family conflicts and moral education of the protagonists (conveniently often children themselves) could provide models of coping. Others have disputed aspects of this interpretation. The German cultural critic and philosopher Walter Benjamin notes that the morality of fairy tales is rather complicated, with the heroes and heroines often known to lie, cheat, steal and torture villains. But there remains something empowering and psychologically insightful in these stories that, as fairy tale scholar Maria Tatar writes, demonstrate the ‘triumph of small and weak over tall and powerful’.

To sum up: one of the most useful functions of the fairy tale is to use fantasy to help address the problems of growing up. During the course of the fairy tale, the hero or heroine is taken on a journey to greater self-awareness and psychological wholeness. In a child’s life there may be many conflicts and the fairy tale helps the child express the hostility these situations may cause. Many psychologists recommend fairy tales as beneficial to children, believing they help children assimilate problems such as violence, sexuality, growing up and learning to deal with family conflict. In many ways, fantasy dreams share the same functions as fairy tales; not only do they provide a healthy outlet for socially unacceptable behavior, they can also empower the dreamer and teach hidden lessons....

MYSTICAL CREATURE

Early human civilizations generally believed there were few barriers between the spirit world and the world of nature; as a result, the mating of gods and humans—or of gods and animals—occurs in most mythologies. The offspring of such unions lead us to the realm of giants and ogres, the miniature world of fairies and elves, and even the union of land and sea as personified by the mermaid. Mythological birds and beasts, such as the dragon, the sphinx and the centaur, have also appeared in dreams as companions or sentries. In general, magical creatures highlight fears or concerns you may have, or connect you to stories and myths that have a strong impact on you.... The Element Encyclopedia
