The meaning of Motion in dream | Dream interpretation


If you dream of something being in motion, then this signifies that projects, plans and/or relationships are progressing, moving forward, and taking on a life of their own.

If the speed feels too fast, then this represents overwhelm.

If the pace is too slow, then you are releasing guilt, sloth, lethargy, or perhaps impatience. Consider the feeling tone.

EMOTION

The expression or release of emotions are very typical and healthy in dreams. Often, because of the lack of inhibitions in the dream state, you might experience extremes that your ego does not allow you to explore in your waking state. Emotions release psychological pressure and allows you to awaken in the morning feeling refreshed, invigorated, with a clean clear slate.

EMOTION(S)

(see also Feelings)

Emotions in dreams are not symbolic; they are just themselves. However, you need to be aware that emotions come from the unconscious, from what Jung calls ‘the Shadow5 - the ‘inferior5, undeveloped functions of your psyche. They may therefore be very disturbing, and often you will not acknowledge them as your own: instead, you may project them on to someone else. Therefore you need to be open to the possibility - or even the probability - that other people (or animals) in dreams represent parts of yourself, and that any emotion that is driving them in the dream is driving you in real life. (For inferior functions, shadow and projection).... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

2- Occasionally in order to understand a dream it is easier to ignore the symbols and simply work with the moods, feelings and emotions that have surfaced. Doing this will yen,- often give us a clearer interpretation of what is going on inside us, rather than confusing ourselves by trying to interpret myriad symbols.

EMOTIONS

According to some psychologists, we dream to relieve and stabilize our emotions.

Otherwise, we would ultimately explode. Sometimes when we dream, we feel very strong emotions impossible to experience in real life. According to Jung, they come from the less developed part (the shadow) of our psyche.

Some superstitions recommend interpreting dreams by reversing the emotions provoked. If, for example, you dream that you are angry, it means that soon you will receive good news.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

EMOTIONS, MOOD

There is a level of human experience which is typified by intense emotional and physical response to life. Such emotions and bodily drives may remain almost entirely unconscious until touched by exploring our dream content in the right setting. When such feelings and bodily movements arise, as they do in dreams, we may be amazed at their power and clarity. See dream processing; sleep move­ments.

If we take away the images and events occurring in a dream and simply look to see what feelings or emotions are evident, the dream is often more understandable than if we try to interpret the symbols. Feelings in dreams are nearly always undistoned. We therefore do not need to interpret them, sim­ply to acknowledge them and see if we can recognise where they occur in waking life.

The images in a dream may be the way we unconsciously pictorialise our flux of feelings and the play of internal energy flows.

For instance love or sexual drive can give rise to physical movement—as in sexual intercourse. Repression of sex or love also represses such physical move­ments, leading to tension and conflict, which might be pre­sented in the drama of a dream.

Example: ‘I was with my wife, walking along a street, on holiday with her. But I felt awful tension. It was the son of stress I feel when I have turned off my sexual flow—as I have at the moment’ (Brian V). Brian can easily see the connection between the dream feelings and his everyday life, although sometimes we need to practise this. But the situation could as easily be expressed as a dream image of a blocked river.

The underlying feelings would then be less easy to grasp.

Example: ‘I was in a very ancient crumbling building, con­fronted by a large stone door, deeply engraved with many designs and creatures. I began to open the door and felt high feelings of anxiety. I realised this was an initiation and I must calm my feelings in order to pass beyond the door, i.e. if I were controlled by my feelings I would run away’ (Derek F). How we meet the emotions in our dreams illustrates our ha­bitual method of dealing with them.

The feelings of anxiety in Derek’s dream were met and moved beyond, but this is un­usual. This is because most of us change our direction as soon as there is a hint of fear.

The amount of nicotine and alcohol human beings consume suggests how poorly we meet anxiety. Going beyond fear or pain is an initiation which opens doors for us. We might now apply for the job, ask for the date, raise the issue, express the creativity, make the journey abroad, which anxiety previously kept us from. We see this in the next example: I had a ring on my marriage finger. It was a thin band of gold. I woke up frightened’ (Angela). Angela is not married and feels anxiety about the commitment.

Dreams give us a safe area to express emotions which might be difficult or dangerous to release socially. Anger in a dream may be expressing what we failed to express in a wak­ing encounter, or it might be our habitual response. It may also be directed against ourself. Dreams also contain many positive emotions. Sometimes they present a new aspect of feeling which is life enhancing.

A person who habitually felt at odds with her father and relatives experienced a dream in which she felt forgiveness for the first time. This was entirely new for her and led to a reconciliation with her family.

Some feeling states in a dream are subtle, and may be more evident in terms of the symbols than the feelings.

A grey drear environment suggests depression and lack of pleasure.

A sunny light environment with flowers and colour shows plea­sure and good feelings.

A country landscape depicts quite a different feeling state to a smoky busy city street. We can define these for ourself using the techniques described under dream processing.

Whatever feelings or emotions we meet in our dreams, many of them are bound to be habitual responses we have to life. Where these habits are negative we can begin to change them by working with the dream images as described in the last question under dream processing. See love; hostility. ...

INCONGRUOUS EMOTIONS

If, in your dream, you are attending a cheerful, fun occasion such as a party, festival or dance and feel intensely and inappropriately sad, this may indicate your need to turn away from distractions and confront your sense of life.

Similarly, if you experience inappropriate happiness or elation at a dream funeral or death, this might point to your being in a state of denial in order to protect yourself from the reality of a personal loss.... The Element Encyclopedia

NEGATIVE EMOTIONS

It is important to note that the feelings you experience in dreams are not symbols of something else but are reflections of your real feelings.

The emotion may be symbolically represented or experienced in the dream or later on in the form of the emotions you experience after awakening. Most dream analysts believe that the emotional atmosphere and feeling of a dream are important clues for its interpretation. This is because when a symbol or dream scenario arouses a particular emotion, your dreaming mind is suggesting to you that this is an emotion that you need to either suppress or, more typically, release in waking life. According to Jung, dreams are a wonderful way of identifying repressed emotions and feelings, and, by so doing, they can encourage emotional and spiritual wholeness and healing.

Negative emotions, such as fear, anger and sadness, tend to occur more often in dreams than pleasant emotions. Fear and anxiety are the most commonly expressed emotions in dreams. Anger ranks next. As the language of dreams is symbolic, you might have trouble identifying what triggered your negative dream in some cases.

If this is the case, consulting CHANGE AND CONFLICT, DISASTERS, NIGHTMARES, LOSS AND FRUSTRATION, SPIRITS AND GHOSTS and STAGES OF LIFE or other dream entries that inspire negative emotions or situations may help. See also POSITIVE EMOTIONS.... The Element Encyclopedia

POSITIVE EMOTIONS

Your dreams can provide you with deep and powerful insights into your moods, and can be used to help you manage feelings of joy as well as sadness.

Perhaps you have woken up from a dream with feelings of euphoria or unexplained happiness, or found yourself laughing without knowing why. Every now and again your dreaming mind may give you an emotional and psychological boost by creating images in which you feel deeply secure, happy and loved. It may also conjure up images of freedom, adventure, success and excitement to spur you on. Dreams that leave you with such lingering feelings of joy and exhilaration are less common than those that leave you with feelings of dread and uncertainty. This may be because there are always constant challenges and responsibilities to face in the real world and your dreams tend to reflect your anxieties about meeting these challenges. Even though they are relatively rare, feelings of immense happiness in dreams are just as important to understand as feelings of sadness according to Jung and most other dream analysts. Joyful, uplifting dreams allow you to focus on the real-life experiences and situations that evoked them, as well as the way you feel about yourself and your life.
