The meaning of Pedestal in dream | Dream interpretation


Honor, recognition. Also, giving power away to something or someone, putting them on a pedestal. Ego or martyr trip, putting self on a pedestal. We are all equal beings.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

W hen we become conscious in a dream that something has been placed on a pedestal we have obviously attempted to make that thing special. We have elevated it to a position of power.

Most human beings have a tendency to idolise or worship certain characteristics. Dreams will often show the appropriateness or otherwise of such an action.

Putting someone or something on a pedestal suggests spiritual worship and idolatry; which can impede one’s spiritual journey if that worship is misplaced.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of a pedestal signify that you are grappling with “better than/less than” issues. Perhaps your subconscious mind is giving you the message that your unrealistic delusions of grandeur that you project on others or yourself are destined to fail, because we are all equally magnificent, loveable and worthy of success. Alternatively, if you dream of someone being on a pedestal, then they might be helping you to aspire toward a goal or vision. See Celebrity.

ANGEL

See Flying. Messenger from God. In a broader sense, angels are messengers from the higher self who is guiding the dreamer. Or a woman or man we love is being placed on a pedestal.

According to Jung: Animus-figures often represent still unfinished, not yet understood, but surprisingly new intellectual gifts, power of reasoning, or character ideals.

During the night of November 10, 1619, Rene Descartes had three consecutive dreams during which the angel of truth appeared to him. On the basis of this revelation, the 23-year-old Descartes developed his philosophy. Lightning.

Opposite: clear counterimage of Devil.

Folklore: Luck in love (you are given the gift of an angel); desire for harmony and purity.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

FAN

If you dream of being someone’s number one fan, then you are putting someone above you, living vicariously through another.

If this helps you to grow to aspire to what they have then this is positive and supportive. However, if you are placing someone on a pedestal and put yourself beneath them then your dream is giving you the message to get on with the business of maximizing your potential.

If this dream is about a fan that circulates air, this is about a change in the air, a change in perspective that happens when you take a breather. See Air.... Strangest Dream Explanations

SCULPTOR

If you are a sculptor in your dreams, you are working on finding yourself and are overcoming obstacles by getting to the core of things.

If a sculpture appears in your dreams, you may find it hard to accept things as they are really are. You may also be overly concerned about projecting a positive image. A statue, bust or obelisk often suggests the desire to put someone or something on a pedestal.

If you are doing this, you increase the feelings of remoteness and unattainability of that person or thing in waking life.

If a statue comes alive in your dreams, you may revive a long-lost interest or rebuild a friendship. Ancient dream oracles indicate that dreaming of being a statue is a sign that your fortunes will change for the better.... The Element Encyclopedia

PARENTS

During the early years of your waking life it is likely that you were physically and emotionally dependent on one or both of your parents or, if either or both were absent, on an alternative mother or father figure. As you emerged into adolescence and adulthood, the chances are you became less reliant on them, yet memories of that early dependency usually remain with you on a conscious or unconscious level. Because your parents had such a great influence over you at a time when your personality was developing and you began to assert your individuality and independence, your feelings towards them will remain intense.

Dreams that feature your parents can have numerous interpretations but the key to understanding them depends on the feelings you associate with your parents, particularly those when you where a child and your parents were the center of your universe. When your dream parents are true to character, the message of your dream is usually easy to understand. For example, if your parents appeared in your dream with words of encouragement and love and they were, or are, this warm and loving in real life, then your dream may simply indicate that you are feeling insecure and in need of validation or unconditional love. Perhaps you dreamt that your parents scolded you about your recent poor performance at work and you have memories of them chiding you harshly over poor grades at school? If this is the case, it may be that your dream is highlighting your dissatisfaction at not living up to the standards your parents instilled in you.

If your parents appear together in your dream, this indicates the rules and codes you learned as a child that still speak to you from within.

If you are hurting, killing, burying or trying to avoid a parent in your dream, this suggests a desire to be free from restraints and values gathered from your parents. You may feel shocked by such a dream, but it is in fact a healthy sign of emerging independence as when your dream parents die or are beaten, you can inherit the power gained from what was good in your relationship.

Dreams in which your parents appear foolish, drunk or disorderly have a similar interpretation; they are a means of gaining independence from internalized values. Dreams in which your parents are crushing you are fairly easy to interpret, suggesting that you need to break away from childhood behavior patterns and develop as an individual. Dreams in which parents die or are dead already can be interpreted the same way. When a parent appears in your environment, home or workplace in your dream and there is no sense of tension, this indicates that you have learned to develop your sense of self and can accept your parents as friends.

Frequent appearances by one or both parents in dreams may be a sign that you have not thrown off an infantile overdependence on them. Jung cites a young man’s dream in which the man’s father appeared as a drunken driver, smashing his car into a wall. This was the exact opposite of the man’s real father, who was a most respectable person, and who was rightly—but far too greatly— respected by the son. What the unconscious was doing through the dream was dethroning the father in order to enable the son to achieve a proper sense of himself as a person in his own right, with his own unique destiny and values. So if your dreams regularly feature your parents, this may suggest that you are more dependent on them than is healthy at this stage in your life. Dreams in which your parents hurl abuse at you or behave inappropriately may therefore be trying to shock you into taking your mother or father off their pedestal so you can give yourself some much-needed emotional independence and freedom.

Whether or not your parent’s behavior in real life mirrors their behavior in its dreamland negative, reoccurring dreams about parents often raise the question of whether it is time for you to become more independent and strike out on your own, regardless of what your parents may think is best for you in waking life.

If you behaved inappropriately towards your parents in your dream, for example swearing at them, listing their faults or even murdering them, such a dream is likely to be a safety valve that enables you to let off tension that you may have been repressing in waking life. It is also likely to be an indication that you need to break free of parental control and take charge of your destiny. Finally, if an interpretation of the appearance of your mother and father still eludes you, it may be that your anima (if you are a man who dreamed of your mother) and your animus (if you are a woman who dreamed of your father) may be making an appearance; alternatively, it may be that another archetype has disguised itself as one of your parents....
