If you find yourself deformed in your dream, in what way do you feel disabled or frightening to others in waking life? Or have you been crippled by an emotional situation and been unable to do anything about it? Has someone in waking life hurt you? A dream of someone else’s deformity may be symbolic of a deformed part of yourself, but it might also be showing you some distasteful part of another person’s personality of which you were previously unaware. A person with a deformity in your dream may represent the trickster archetype mocking your own pretensions, although for Freud it represented a fear of male impotence, and for Jung it was a symbol of the devouring mother. A limp can be a warning from the unconscious of those dangers of pride and ambition that bring humiliation rather than success upon the dreamer.
If you are using crutches in your dream, are you relying on crutches, such as alcohol, nicotine or controlled drugs, in waking life?
Very often dreams of paralysis and numbness may be induced by the dreamer’s arm or leg going to sleep as the result of a trapped nerve.
If this is not the case, dreams of being unable to move (as if rooted to the spot) may be equating paralysis with frigidity; in waking life, the dreamer might suffer from fears of sexual intimacy. Your dream may also be referring to an area of your life in which things have stagnated or not progressed as they should have. This will usually be an emotional paralysis or a feeling of helplessness in a particular situation in your life. For example, you may be caught between a spouse and a lover, or between two possible courses of action. Dismemberment of your body in a dream suggests feelings of powerlessness in waking life. Is some situation tearing you apart or do you need to take your feelings apart?... The Element Encyclopedia
If the top half of your body is missing, this indicates lack of reasoning and emotional intelligence.
If the bottom half is missing, this relates to loss, or denial of instincts and sexuality.
If the body is injured or you see injuries, this suggests emotional scars or hurts, or repressed anger.
If the body is cut open, this indicates a vital change within yourself or the release of emotional tension.
In times past, such dreams were interpreted as the release of ‘evil spirits’, hence the association of a sometimes painful release of tension.
Loss of limbs in a body usually indicates a sense of inadequacy, sometimes connected with the limb that is lost. For example, loss of legs could suggest an inability to stand up for yourself or someone dependent on you. Loss of an arm could indicate an inability to influence other people, or to give and receive.
If your body is burnt in the dream, this suggests an emotional scar, and if the burn is painful, this suggests that you are relating to this hurt in an unhelpful, self-destructive way. If, however, the burning isn’t painful, it has a more positive interpretation: feelings of potential and new beginnings.
Marks on the body in a dream suggest things you carry with you in life, or experiences that have marked you.
If your body is crawling with maggots, this indicates the need to cleanse your body of toxins, infection or resentment. A murdered body in a dream represents aspects of your life that you find hard to deal with, such as anger towards a family member. Sometimes such anger may be a way of avoiding the real issues involved and, if this is the case, the dream murder may show how you feel about being ‘murdered’ by lack of love or trust.
If you are pulling things out of your body in your dream, this suggests growing self-knowledge; you are becoming aware of thoughts and emotions of which you were previously unaware. See also SICKNESS AND HEALTH.... The Element Encyclopedia

Hair is an important sexual symbol for both men and women, so dreams of being forcibly shaven might be a symbol of castration or a sign of subjugation.

An idea of ‘reality’ in the sense of what is probable, and what would be dangerously out of norm, has been formed. We gather information in ways little recognised. How our parents relate to their environment and to other people is all recorded and leamt from, bringing about enormous ‘programming’ affecting how we act in similar circumstances.
As explained in the entry on the dream as spiritual guide, we have great ability in ‘reading’ symbols, ritual, an, music, body language, architecture, drama, and extracting ‘meaning’ from them. So we have immense stores of information from these sources. Work done with people exploring their dreams over a long period suggests that some of these information resources are never focused on enough to make conscious what we have actually learnt. Sometimes it is enough simply to ask oneself a question to begin to focus some of these resources. Such questions as what social attitude and response to authority did I learn at school? What feeling reaction do I get when I am in the presence of someone I know well? These may help to bring to awareness aspects of information gathered but remaining unconscious. These unfocused, or unconscious, areas of information can explain why we have apparently irrational feeling responses to some people or situations.
the body A lot of what we call the unconscious are basic physiological and psychological functions.
For instance in a modern house, when we flush the toilet, we do not have to bring a bucket of water and fill the cistern again.
A self regulating mechanism allows water to flow in and switches it off when full. This is a clever built-in function that had to be done manually at one time. Nowadays we have built into some dwellings fire sprinklers or burglar alarms. Through repeated actions over thousands or millions of years, many basic functions, or functions only switched on in emergencies, have been built into our being. We do not need to think about them, just as we do not have to give awareness to the fire sprinkling system or toilet each time we walk through a room or flush the toilet. They are therefore unconscious.
Research with animals in connection with rewards and conditioned reflexes has shown that by gradually leading an animal towards a certain performance by rewarding it each time it gets nearer to the goal, it can do the most amazing things. It can increase the circulation of blood to its ear, slow its heart, and in fact influence body functions which were thought to be completely involuntary. Where human beings have learnt to use some of these techniques—such as raising the temperature of an arm at will, or helping to increase the efficiency of the immune system—the actual processes still remain unconscious. In general, however, the body’s functions are thought to be outside our awareness, and so are one of the areas of the unconscious. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
Parched or barren ground is, however, a sign of inner conflict or exhaustion, suggesting that you should search your dreamscape for signs of hope. Sand in a dream suggests instability and lack of security, especially if you see it together with the sea.
If the sands are shifting, you may feel uncertain about what you want from life.
If you see sand in an hourglass, you are conscious of time running out.
If you are building sandcastles in your dream, this suggests that the structure of your life lacks permanence.
Mud symbolizes creation in many religions, specifically the creation of mankind. In the Bible, God molded Adam from a lump of clay and breathed life into him, and it is traditionally to clay and dust that human beings return. Ancient dream interpretation suggested that to dream of mud foretold finding great riches, while a dream in which you sank in mud would lead to a rapid recovery from illness. From a psychological viewpoint, mud represents the fundamental substance of life, which handled properly has potential for growth, but handled badly can drag you down. Mud in dreams can also represent past experiences—or your perception of them—as something that is holding you back, or in which you are stuck. Clear as mud paradoxically means that something is not clear at all. Are you unclear about a situation in which you are involved? See also CRYSTALS, GEMSTONES AND ROCKS; TREES....

The subtlety here is in whether you are on stage because of heightened vulnerability or because you are hiding your true feelings by “acting” your way through an experience. By considering the timing of the dream with regard to current situations in your life, you can discover your true sense of preparedness for what is being thrown at you at the time of the dream. By examining this thoroughly, you can assess whether this dream means you are feeling incompetent to face a challenge in life or if you are feeling prepared to perform at your peak capability.
A highly stylized performance could indicate inauthenticity in some area. Conversely, it could connect to a powerful sense of creative originality.

If a withered tree is transformed into a blossoming one in a dream, it means political changes, changes in worldly conditions, or reversal of conditions from good to bad, or from bad to good. This element includes the transformation of inner substances or physical ones.
For example, if sees himself as an old person in a dream, when in real life he is young, it means progress in his spiritual life and gaining honor.lfhe is an old person and sees himself as a young boy in a dream, it means indulging in wrongdoing.
If one sees a known old person regaining his youth, it means that the material conditions of the person seeing the dream will turn around to one’s advantage or otherwise. i.e., richness into poverty and vice-versa, or ifhe is sick, he will recover from his illness.
If one is transformed into a beautiful shoot of green or a blossoming branch of a tree in a dream, it means that he may die within a short time. Becoming taller in a dream means longevity, prosperity, or begetting a son. Ifone finds himselfmissing partial mental keenness or physical abilities or a limb in a dream, it means that he may suffer losses relating to his worldly interests.
If a man sees himself transformed into a woman, and wears her apparels, ornaments and make-up in a dream, it means that he may suffer humiliation, adversities and abuse.
If a woman sees herself transformed into a man, or if she grows a beard in a dream, it means that she will reestablish her connection with a missing child. As a man in the dream, and if she is pregnant, it means that she will beget a son who may die in his early youth, but if she is not pregnant, it means that she is no longer fertile. Ifone sees himselfflying with wings in a dream, it means travels.
If one sees himself transformed into a wooden staff in a dream, it represents his insolence.
If one sees himself transformed into an iron rod in a dream, it means longevity. Ifone sees himself transformed into a bridge in a dream, it means that he may become a ruler, a wise man, or a man of knowledge whom people will seek to benefit from his wisdom.

If one sees himself turned into a beast in a dream, it means that he will be segregated from the believers to live alone because of his evil qualities.
If one sees himself turned into a deer, a gazelle or an antelope in a dream, it means that he will become obsessed with his sexual life, or that he will become mentally deranged to the degree of indulging in bisexual practices.

If one sees a steer transformed into a wolf in a dream, it represents a government employee who will turn unjust.

Example: ‘On a hot summer day I was walking with a beautiful black woman through countryside. She stopped and told me she had a problem.
To show me she pulled down the strap of her dress. On her shoulder the black skin was peeling to reveal golden white skin underneath. She said that if she kept seeing me she would become completely white. She was going to ask advice from her mother about what to do. As we walked on two black men fought with me. They wanted to take her back to the village. I woke feeling I was winning’ (paraphrased from The Way of The Dream, Fraser Boa). Here the dreamer is relating well to his own feelings of sexuality and sensuality. However, he is beginning to see a female partner as a real person, not just as his sexuality paints her. Also, the reference to seeking advice from the mother suggests his ability to love is still not freed from emotional and erotic connections with his mother, and needs transforming. One often hears people, even in their 40s, saying It is difficult (developing a relationship) with that person because my mother doesn’t like them.’ The dreamer ‘fights’ the opposing drives, which want to take the man’s love back to the village, his childhood level of love—thus he moves towards becoming independent in love and life.
The transformation is towards mature love and relatedness.
For a further description of the major areas and themes of transformation, see individuation. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
A landscape may change from dark to light (negativity to positivity), a person may change from masculine to feminine or one image may change into another. Once the dreamer understands the change is for the better, he is able to accomplish changes in his own life.
As the growth to maturity takes place, there are many transformations which occur. These arc often depicted in dreams as immediate changes, like a speeded-up camera filming an opening flower.
Transformation takes place in spiritual terms when freedom of thought or action is indicated, or when higher impulses are substituted for lower reactions.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
Bizarre transformations of objects into living things, such as a pencil turning into a snake, a doll into a donkey or a table into a swarm of wasps, suggest untapped potential within you that can help you cope with change. To clarify what this potential is, refer to the symbolic interpretation of the objects that have been transformed. Shape-shifter dreams, in which people you know suddenly transform into something else, typically a monster or beast, represent unpredictable people in your waking life. For example, someone might be kind and caring towards you until they transform under the influence of alcohol. On the other hand, the shape-shifting may be some kind of moral test.
Can you uncover the beauty behind the monster’s mask? What lies below the outer skin of the dream beast? Try to make a connection to your waking life.
Sudden changes from winter to spring in a dream, or from night to day, may also suggest new directions and developments in the dreamer’s life.
If the other way round, and the switch is from day to night, or spring to winter, this may suggest the need to confront and deal with dangerous impulses.
If the landscape suddenly becomes unfamiliar in your dream, this can point to an unwillingness or an inability to cope with the new. However, if the new environment is welcoming and friendly this is a positive sign. A return to the comfort of the childhood home or a familiar environment is widely interpreted by Freudians and Jungians as a desire to return to the security of the womb during times of change and conflict.
If something is transfigured in a dream, such as when an object or person is surrounded by light, this suggests that light has entered the person during a period of transition and they are becoming more self-aware.
If you become invisible in your dream, it can indicate that you feel ignored in waking life—that you and your life are insignificant to others. It can also mean that you are hiding from others or yourself.
If you have this type of dream, it might be time to look at how you present yourself to other people.... The Element Encyclopedia
Therefore if she dreams that her father transforms into another man, this indicates some kind of positive or negative change in her perception of men, although much depends on the circumstances of the dream and the woman’s feelings about it.
Dreams in which parents, family members or partners behave completely out of character—for example, your gentle mother transforms into a cruel tyrant or your teetotal father transforms into a raging alcoholic—can be extremely unsettling, as they turn what you regard as accepted truths on their heads. Such dreams have little to do with real-life family members or loved ones; far more are they to do with unresolved aspects of either your life or yourself that you need to confront and work on in order to find fulfillment. In such cases, your unconscious mind may have conjured up parental or family archetypes to bring neglected issues to your attention or to warn you of an authority figure who presents a threat to you in waking life. For example, perhaps the controlling father in your dream represents your boss who is stifling your individuality, or your nurturing dream mother is telling you to mother yourself or someone close to you.

analysis of a dream
Ricardo dreamed: “I was wearing a military uniform and my family marched according to my orders: ‘One, Two, Three, and! Turn, and!’ They were all very firm, rigid and obedient, and I felt proud of my control. We marched through the street and the neighbors watched us from the windows with expressions of admiration.”
Ricardo had this dream in a time in which his family disintegrated. His wife was being difficult in the divorce negotiations, and his adolescent daughter threatened to go live with her boyfriend and leave her studies. The dream reveals his desire to put his family life back in order and avoid the circumstances that had escaped his control. His subconscious was recommending that he be more strict and energetic in enforcing his opinions. Up until then Ricardo had always given in to his wife’s and daughter’s desires, and his life was uncontrolled. The fact that the neighbors approved of his conduct from the windows reflects his need for recognition, which he only felt in this important moment of his life.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
