play

The meaning of Play in dream | Dream interpretation


To watch a play is to watch your own life. Remember you are the writer, director and producer; if you do not like what you see, you are free to change the script or produce an entirely new drama.

If you are playing, or at play, rebuild creative energies, relax, and forget about competition and struggle.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

To see children at play is an omen of success in love or personal relationships; watching the performance of a play in your dream is a symbol of good times ahead if you enjoyed it, but if you found it sad or unpleasant in any way, the dream is warning you of brewing financial embarrassment—guard your credit.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

(See Actor, Singer, Stage).

To dream of being at the theatre and watching a play being enacted, either by living people or on the screen, is either lucky or unlucky according to the character of the play. It presages meetings with interesting people of the opposite sex which may lead in almost any direction depending on whether the play is pleasing or harrowing, exciting or dull. One should refer to the subject under its proper heading.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

(See Actor), If the play seen in a dream is pleasing, the import is some achievement which, though it may be small, will give much pleasure.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

For a young woman to dream that she attends a play, foretells that she will be courted by a genial friend, and will marry to further her prospects and pleasure seeking.

If there is trouble in getting to and from the play, or discordant and hideous scenes, she will be confronted with many displeasing surprises. See Theater.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

1- When in a dream we arc watching a play, we need to decide whether it is a drama, a comedy or a tragedy. This is because we often are trying to view our own lives objectively.

The content of the play may give us clues as to what our course of action should be in everyday life.

If people we know are in the play we should be aware of the ‘drama’ we arc playing out with them.

2- In dreams, the play that takes placc is a distillation of our experiences, knowledge and abilities.

The creator in us directs the performance to enable us to get the best benefit of the information it contains. Images arc put together to have the greatest impact and to make the interpretation as easy as possible. Sometimes, however, the unexpected occurs which means that we have to seek explanation elsewhere.

3- From a spiritual perspective, the life that we have creates a play which gives us the best opportunity to learn lessons through experience.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of a theatrical play represent your desire to present yourself to the world, to take your thoughts and feelings from behind the scenes of your mind and heart and display them in the spotlight of center stage.

If you dream of acting in a play or watching a theatrical production, then this represents objectivity in your ability to witness the roles you play in life. This dream may be reminding you that you are the writer, director and star of this show, so if you don’t like the direction that the play is headed, then you have the power to change it.

If you dream of playing, as in a child at a park, then this represents that you are in touch with your creativity, freedom, and unique expression.

If someone is playing a game, such as chess or checkers, then you are becoming aware of the aspect of you that can be strategic and manipulative in your desire to win. Consider the feeling tone of this dream. See Stage and Script.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous

1. The cause and effect or plot of a situation, playing a role.

2. Deepest desires are achieved.

3. The playing out of a deep-seated memory or emotion.

New American Dream Dictionary | Joan Seaman - Tom Philbin

See THEATRE.

It is more fortunate to watch a Play than to dream that you are taking part in one.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

If you dream of being in an old-fashioned theater, you will have pleasure in the company of new friends. You will probably find that things in your life run quite smoothly shortly after this dream.

If you dream of watching a play in a theatre, one of your male friends is interested in a more romantic relationship with you. You may date him for social reasons, even if you don’t like him that way.

If you dream that you are acting in a play, these happy times will be interrupted by something annoying.

If you applaud and laugh at a theatre, you will avoid responsibility to chase after your whims.

Dreaming of being an actor/actress can also mean that you have been dishonest, with others or yourself.

If it’s a pleasant dream, lying has worked in your favor, but it could have bad consequences. Watching actors in a dream means you feel out of control. Meeting an actor warns of a false friend coming into your life.

If you have trouble getting to or from a play in your dream, or if there are upsetting or weird scenes in the play, you will be confronted with unpleasant surprises.

If you have to escape from a theater in your dream, because of a fire or another danger, it is a signal that you will engage in a risky enterprise in real life.

MUSIC PLAYER

Records, cassettes, and CDs can simply represent the pleasure you feel when you listen to music but they can also, depending on your personal associations with the music being played, suggest the unconscious impressions you are responding to or the impressions you would like to give to others about yourself. Dreams of personal stereos or iPods may suggest a desire to concentrate on your intuition and shut out the noise and confusion of the outside world. A dream of wearing a personal stereo and using earphones may also warn against an excessive need for privacy and avoidance of interaction with other people.... The Element Encyclopedia

PLAY / PANTOMIME

Typically, plays in dreams are images of yourself and your life projected by your unconscious. They represent an aspect of your past or your character that you are repressing in waking life or, depending on the play, particular moods or feelings. Alternatively, such dreams can suggest a desire to escape from the pressures of everyday life.

If the play is a tragedy, is the routine and repetition of your life restricting your creativity? If the play is a comedy, do you need to lighten up a little in waking life? If what you are watching is a pantomime, has the time come to stop fooling about and get serious about something or someone in waking life?... The Element Encyclopedia

PLAYING CARDS

Dreams that contain cards are related to working with patterns and all the permutations that are possible when you understand the underlying structure of how life works. Cards are numbered and suited, and through working with these categories, an almost infinite number of possibilities exists. This is an analogy for how life itself works. In this way, playing cards are like a testing ground for becoming more skillful in playing the game of life.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

PLAYING CARDS IN DREAMS

Long before people used cards to play games, they were used to foretell the future. In fact, playing cards were invented for divination rather than for entertainment. Bear in mind that dreams comment on future possibilities rather than predict the future, but if a particular card is highlighted in your dream, the following traditional divinatory meanings may suggest possible situations you might like to encourage or avoid in your waking life. First of all, the suits are associated with the four elements as follows: Hearts—Water; Clubs—Fire; Diamonds—Earth; Spades—Air. The individual card meanings are as follows:

Ace of Hearts: Love and happiness; a particularly favorable card that indicates troubles lifting.

King of Hearts: A fair-haired man with a good nature; or a man with water signs predominating in his chart; fair, helpful advice. Affectionate, caring man. This man helps you out without much talk; his actions reveal his kindness and concern.

Queen of Hearts: A fair-haired woman with a good nature; or a woman with water signs predominating in her chart; kind advice. Affectionate, caring woman. This card can sometimes indicate the mother or a mother figure.

Jack of Hearts: A warm-hearted friend; a fair-haired youth; or a young person with water signs predominating in their chart; often points to a younger admirer.

10 of Hearts: Good luck; success; this is an important card that suggests good fortune after difficulty.

9 of Hearts: The card of wishes; a wish or dream fulfilled.

8 of Hearts: Unexpected gift or visit; an invitation to a party.

7 of Hearts: Someone whose interest in you is unreliable; someone with fickle affections for you; can indicate lovesickness.

5 of Hearts: Jealousy; some ill-will from people around you.

4 of Hearts: Travel; change of home or business.

3 of Hearts: Love and happiness; can also indicate emotional problems and an inability to decide who to love.

2 of Hearts: A warm partnership or engagement; a very favorable card that indicates strength and support coming from a partner.

Ace of Clubs: Wealth, prosperity, unexpected money; can also suggest mismanagement of money.

King of Clubs: Dark-haired, kindhearted man; or a man with fire predominating in his chart; a generous, spirited man.

Queen of Clubs: Dark-haired, confident woman; or a woman with fire predominating in her chart; she may give you good advice.

Jack of Clubs: A dark-haired or fiery youth; a popular youth who is good-hearted and playful; can also indicate an admirer.

10 of Clubs: Business success; good luck with money; a trip taken now may result in a new friend or love interest.

9 of Clubs: Achievement; sometimes a wealthy marriage or sudden windfall.

8 of Clubs: Work or business problems that may have to do with jealousy.

WORD PLAY, PUNS

According to Freud, one of the major pro­cesses of the unconscious is condensation. This means that within one element in a dream, such as the strange room we dream we are in or the unusual name a person has in the dream, are condensed many associated emotions, memories or ideas. Talking about a peapod which appeared as part of her imagery, Constance Newland shows how it represented her father’s penis.

The pea associated with pee or urine, and the pod with a seed carrier, the testicles. Freud gives the ex­ample of a patient who dreamt he was kissed by his uncle in an ‘auto’.

The patient immediately gave his own association as auto-eroticism.

A psychologist whose patient dreamt she was going on a trip on a boat called Ncwland, correctly inferred that the patient was getting better, because the name sug­gested new territory traversed. One woman dreamt about a busy intersection, and realised it was referring to inter-sex-on.

So we need to consider how unconsciously we might be playing with words, then check if this helps us gain insight. Also, phrases are used in the same way. We might see such words as ‘1 felt a prick’, keeping it up was difficult’, ‘dead end’ and so on, in writing down our dream. See names of people; introduction to colours. ...
