The meaning of Moody in dream | Dream interpretation
(1) A hermaphrodite may denote the ‘marriage’ of conscious and unconscious components of the psyche. The ‘marriage’ may be total or partial, depending on how much of your unconscious you have integrated into your conscious attitudes and actions.
(2) It may symbolize (the need for) perfect balance between the masculine and feminine sides of your nature (for anima / animus, see Brother / Sister, section (4)). Every man has feminine components in his psyche, every woman has masculine components in hers. These contrasexual components are usually suppressed by social convention. However, neglect of the contrasexual side of your nature results in a lopsided development.
Dogmatism in a woman comes from an unintegrated animus. Similarly, a man who has not brought his masculine and feminine sides into harmony may be fickle, moody, and prone to emotional outbursts. See also Couple, section (2), Marriage.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
If so, have you talked about it to a good friend or psychotherapist? If not, why not do so? Where there is symbolism, it will probably be as follows:
(1) For a man, a dream of incest with your daughter will usually express fear of the erotic element in your feelings towards your daughter in real life; but could be a straightforward expression of desire.
(2) For a man, in a dream of incest with your sister, the sister may be an anima figure, representing the feminine side of your nature.
If the positive aspect of the anima is represented - as a source of wisdom and all-embracing love - the unconscious is inviting you to accept and integrate these good things into your conscious life.
If the anima figure displays a negative - possessive and moody - aspect, the dream is telling you that love (in this case, proper respect for the feminine components of your psyche) can change a negative into a positive. (On anima, see Brother / Sister, sections (4)-(6))
(3) For a man, a dream of incest with your mother may express the desire you felt for her as a small boy. This desire, though repressed, may occasionally surface. Try to accept it as natural and innocent (on the Oedipus complex). Your mother may sometimes symbolize your anima. See also (2) above, and (7) below.
(4) For a woman, if you dream of incest with your father, it may be an expression of your (repressed) childhood desire for your father. You need to see the innocence of such feelings.
(5) For a woman an act of incest with your brother may be telling you something about your animus, the masculine side of your nature.
If the animus figure is a positive one, it represents the source of all you need for wholeness, if only your feminine and masculine psychic components unite fully at the conscious level.
If the animus figure is a negative one - obstinate, opinionated - you have repressed and neglected your masculine qualities so that they express themselves in uncontrolled and threatening ways; and only love - full respect for them, and allowing them a proper place in your conscious life - can transform negative to positive.
(6) Again for a woman, a dreamed act of incest with your son, or incestuous desires, are probably expressing your anxiety concerning your - natural - sensuous pleasure in the sight and touch of him.
(7) A man’s dreamed or fantasized incest with mother may represent a death-wish, a desire to return into the womb. This means your mother has the properties of the Earth Mother in her negative, devouring aspect; and you really do need to make every effort to throw off an attachment to mother that is preventing the unfolding of your own individual self.
Alternatively, incest with mother in a dream could express a desire for new life: a descent, as it were, into the Earth Mother’s womb for rebirth.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Intriguingly, near-death reports from different cultures around the world are generally consistent and in many instances are identical to the features of the post-mortem state that is described in the Tibetan Book of the Dead. There is also a marked similarity between NDEs and reports of the inner journeys of shamanism, astral travel and out-of- body experiences.
The term ‘near-death experience’ was coined by American doctor Raymond Moody in the 1970s to describe the phenomenon outlined above. Prior to publication of Moody’s book, Life After Life in 1975, NDEs were not openly talked about; once the book came out, more and more people began to talk about them. By 1982 a Gallup poll suggested that as many as eight million Americans had had some kind of NDE. Moody and a number of other NDE researchers, such as Kenneth Ring, a psychologist and founding member of the International Association of Near Death Studies at the University of Connecticut, were able to identify a number of traits common to all NDEs, even though the experience was always unique to each individual. They concluded that in a NDE, people typically experience one or more of the following phenomena in this sequence: a sense of leaving the material world behind or an out-of-body experience in which they feel they are floating above their bodies looking down; cessation of pain, a feeling of great calm and peace; traveling down a dark tunnel towards a light at its end; meeting spirit beings, many of whom are dead friends and relatives; meeting a spirit guide who takes them through their life story and puts their life into perspective without any negative judgment; and, finally, an abrupt and sometimes reluctant return to life.
The great majority of NDEs are described as being positive and uplifting; around three per cent are described as negative or frightening. Almost anyone can have the experience and it is not limited to those who have religious beliefs, although many people who have experienced a NDE do become more religious or develop a spiritual belief system afterwards. Almost all say they lose their fear of death, this being replaced by a strong belief in an afterlife. Many discover a meaning and purpose to their lives that they may have previously lacked. In some cases, the NDE leaves a person with heightened intuitive or psychic powers.
Even though millions of people claim to have had an NDE, it is impossible for researchers to prove scientifically that the experience is genuine. Evidence is therefore based entirely on anecdotal reports.
According to skeptics, the NDE is a dream or hallucination caused by, amongst other things, a lack of oxygen, the release of the body’s natural pain killers called endorphins and increased levels of carbon dioxide as the brain dies. NDEs were reportedly reproduced by Ronald Siegel, a researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine, when LSD and other drugs were administered. NDE supporters stress, however, that drug-induced hallucinations and NDEs are totally different things. Such explanations also do not take into account the fact that many people brought back to life can give accurate accounts of their resuscitations, of medical procedures carried out on them or report conversations they overheard at the time they were allegedly dead. This suggests that some part of consciousness can separate from the body at death. There is no doubt that the near-death experiences are supported by impressive documentation and, for believers in them, these reports constitute a very powerful argument for the existence of an afterlife....
