school

The meaning of school in dream | Dream Interpretation


A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences | Tony Crisp

The learning process; what we leamt at school—not lessons but interrelationships, class structure, competitive­ness, authority, mortification, group preferences, etc.; habits of behaviour or feeling reactions developed during those years— puberty occurs at this time, and confronts us with many new feelings, choices and drives. Schoolfriend: your own attitudes developed in school, as you are meeting’ them in the present. School clothes: social attitudes or moral rules leamt at school.

Example: ‘1 am back at school on the first day of the new school year. At this point it can vary slightly, but I always feel out of place, usually because I am older than the other girls now or—most common—because my uniform is incorrect and it is time for assembly—I went to a very strict convent school. There is always some feeling of panic and quite often loneliness’ (PH). PH is still uncomfortable about who she is as a person.

The influence of the school years still nags at her, that she ought to be other than she is. Not having a nature that easily conformed, she was led to feel isolated and an alien.

Places in school: particular abilities we have. Library, our knowledge and learning ability; stored information. Gymna­sium: taking risks in learning something new; daring; physical health. Classroom: study, relationship with authority.

Example: ‘In the bathroom area, a school class was being held, so I had to wait for my bath, steam would be bad for the books. I didn’t have any soap with me but I was going to wash my hair and could use the shampoo’ (Leonie K). Leonie is getting rid of attitudes or a self image developed at school, shown as shampooing her hair.

The new attitudes of letting off steam would not have been acceptable at school.

Idioms: of the old school; tell tales out of school, old school tie; well schooled. See schoolteacher under roles.

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

Symbolic of a time of learning in life, Acts 19:9.

A school is a common dream setting for past or present important events in a person’s life

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

School is a place of learning and advancement of intellectual pursuits. In a dream, school represents the need and desire to grow and expand in wisdom. One of the most common recurring dream images involves returning to the school of one’s youth, and such a dream relates to anxiety around responsibility and being held accountable for what you know.

If your dream does not take you back to your earlier life, a school can be an indication that there are life lessons to be learned.

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

Wherever one learns a lesson, and not always an academic one

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Spiritually it is often considered that life itself is a school.

It is an arena for learning and experiencing so that we can maximize our best potential; life is a testing-ground for the reality that comes afterwards.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Psychological / emotional perspective: The school or classroom will often appear in dreams when we are re­learning how to deal with our own personalities idiosyncrasies. Such images will often appear at times when we are attempting to get rid of old outmoded ideas and concepts. Also, when we are learning different ways of dealing with authority and with feelings of inadequacy, our feelings about school will surface.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Material aspects: School is an important part of everyone’s life. In situations where we are learning new abilities or skills, the image of a school will often surface in dreams.

It is also the place where we experience associations that do not belong to the family, and can in dreams, therefore, suggest new ways of learning about relationships. School may also be indicative of how we learn about competitiveness and belonging to groups. Consult the entries for education, teacher and university for further information.

Dream Symbols and Analysis | DreamForth

To dream that you are in school indicates that you sill harbor unsettled feelings and emotions about your youth. You may feel insufficient and unable to perform a task to the best of your ability. You may be experiencing some sort of divine revelation.

If you are still in school and you dream about school, then this can simply be a reflection of your experiences. In addition, a dream that takes place in school may represent morals that you have been taught throughout your life. *See Teacher

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

As a place to learn, to “brush up” on subjects previously studied, or to further one’s education, a school in a dream may indicate inadequacy, especially if related to unpleasant early school experiences.

If the dreamer is a teacher, the dream may symbolize authority. In some esoteric groups it is said that during sleep the soul attends classes “on the inner planes” (in the spiritual realm), so that dreams about being in a classroom would be interpreted as reflecting this type of “spiritual learning” experience. (See also Class, Seminar).

Islamic Dream Interpretation | Ibn Seerin

(Institute; Learning; Tutoring) In a dream, a school represents its teachers, scholars, a gnostic, a school of thought, or its founder. Seeing a school in a dream also could mean divorcing one’s wife then returning her to wedlock. It also means righteousness, establishingthe divine laws, promotinga business, or inviting trouble.

(Also see Institute)

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

Learning, as in School Work and Tests.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

Dreams about being at school often mean you are feeling inescure about your social status, your abilities or your performance in a situation.

A dream that takes place in school may also be a metaphor for the lessons you are learning in your life.

To dream of ditching/skipping school may indicate that you have skipped something important or avoided your responsibilities - have you done the right thing in a situation? If you dream about the first day of school, you could simply be nervous about returning to school in real life. Or, this dream may also be a warning to pay closer attention to your responsibilities.

A dream about the last day of school can be a straight-forward reflection of reality, meaning you are looking forward to school being over! This dream may also represent how much you have learned from your experiences, and your readiness to go forward with a new phase of your life.

If you dream of visiting an old school, your unconscious mind is telling you that you have come a long way. Try to consider the lessons you learned in the past, and apply them to your current challenges. Your mind could also be trying to teach you what worked or didn’t in the past, so you can change your behavior and be happier in the present.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

To dream of attending school, indicates distinction in literary work.

If you think you are young and at school as in your youth, you will find that sorrow and reverses will make you sincerely long for the simple trusts and pleasures of days of yore.

To dream of teaching a school, foretells that you will strive for literary attainments, but the bare necessities of life must first be forthcoming.

To visit the schoolhouse of your childhood days, portends that discontent and discouraging incidents overshadows the present.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

This dream may be interpreted on several different levels.

If you are the student you may be feeling inadequate or lack self confidence. Either way, going to school or attending class in a dream is your unconscious reminder that there is a need for new learning and that you may have not learned an important lesson. School may not always be a positive experience, but it is always necessary. Ask yourself what do you need to learn more about? If you were a teacher in your dream, you may be dealing with issues of authority. From a spiritual point of view, some believe that in the dream state an individual may travel to an inner plane or the spiritual realm, where they can attend classes which assist in spiritual growth and development.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Going back to school you attended during childhood reflects the need to appreciate what you have (in this case, the accumulated knowledge).

It is a throwback to the past, but it can help you understand the present. Not surprisingly, dreaming about the school may mean that you are behaving childishly. For this reason, the unconscious is returning you back to that time, reminding you to be over with that stage if you want to look forward and progress in life. School ultimately urges you to learn and accept the lessons of life. A teacher in this dream represents your own self-censorship and self- control.

If the teacher scolds you it indicates that you feel guilty, or you consider yourself inferior compared to others, or your misdeeds will come to light.

If the teacher congratulates you it means you trust yourself and your abilities.

If you are the teacher of the school the dream portends good fortune.

If you are a student you will suffer a setback in business; it will worsen if, in the dream, you forget the lesson.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

To dream you begin to go to school again, and you cannot say your lessons right, shows that you are about to undertake something which you do not well understand.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

Distinction will come to you if you dream of attending schooL It is an augury of progress in many lines.

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

A dream of being in school suggests that your reluctance to break old associations is retarding your progress; to dream of leaving school or of seeing a school from the outside predicts a sudden stroke of money luck, but don’t go wild; it will be transitory.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

Life is school; you are here only to learn and grow. You are taught by all people and all situations. Be enthusiastic; you are going to go through it anyway. Lessons never change until you learn them, so might as well get in and work through them now. Each night you are out of the body and learn in schools on higher levels. Each level of consciousness is teaching you something about the nature of self.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Lessons to be learned; more growth is required; associated with school days; raise thinking to a new level.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

You may have had a dream in which you were a child again and you felt lost and lonely at school. Perhaps it was your first day in a new school? Your unconscious often draws on past experiences to reflect current feelings, so perhaps you have recently started a new job or moved to a new area. Or are you just feeling insecure and uncertain about yourself? If your school dream was positive, you may just be feeling nostalgic about an exciting time in your life.

If your school dream was negative, however, and you hated school, then your dream may be suggesting that you have not resolved your feelings about this life experience. You need to reassess your school days from an adult perspective.

If the school was ruined or dilapidated in your dream, this can represent the collapse of youthful illusions; your dreaming mind is urging you not to dwell on the past but to move on. Another interpretation of dreams about being back at school is that you are feeling suffocated by rules, regulations and restrictions in your waking life that are preventing you from leading the life you want to live. It can sometimes refer to feelings of rejection, aloneness and stress on leaving your mother for the first time. Your dreaming mind may also be urging you to seek out knowledge or learn new skills in waking life. Specific places or rooms in the school represent attitudes learned at school. For example, the library is a place of knowledge and stored information; the gymnasium is associated with physical health and a place where you take risks. School clothes suggest the social image you developed at school and school friends, those of your attitudes that you developed at school.

In general, dream of high school or secondary school are not so much about the lessons you learned there, but about social concerns or the desire to fit in at all costs. Whether you couldn’t find a classroom or were unprepared for an exam, the primary concern of such dreams centers around your own abilities and what others think of you. Dreams set in high school reflect your insecurities and social fears.

If you dream of the school playground, this represents the importance of relaxation or recreation to balance the time you spend working.

Not wanting to join in with school games suggests an inability to switch off from work, whilst reluctance to leave the playground suggests a lack of discipline.

If you dream of bullying and are identifying with the victim, you may be expressing old memories of school experiences that were upsetting. Alternatively, the bully might represent a domineering figure in your current life or aspects of your own character that are domineering.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

In the language of mind, a school signifies the dreamer’s awareness of their personal growth or of the lessons that need to be learned.

The Fabric of Dream | Katherine Taylor Craig

To dream of attending school and being unable to learn shows an undertaking that the dreamer does not understand (Artemidorus).

The Premier in Dream Dictionary | The Premier

Dreaming of school reflects your personal sense of competence and how you feel others perceive your abilities.

• It can also indicate your relationship to authority. Not being able to find the classroom is reflecting your concerns around social acceptability and acceptance by your peers.

• Dreaming of a first day at school may signify the same insecurities and fears of fitting in you felt back, then but triggered by a new job or new situation in your life now.

The Way of Dreams and Visions | Colette Toach

General Meaning: The meaning for dreaming of a school, college and University is twofold: • 1. A picture of gaining knowledge and qualifying in a particular realm of your life.

• 2. A picture of the education system in the world.

Dreams Positive:

Depending on your personal view of school, you will have a different interpretation.

The most universal of course is a place of learning, and it speaks of the knowledge you have attained over the years.

• If you dream that you pass a test or go up a grade in school, it means that you have passed a spiritual test and that you are ready to move forward.

• It is an indication that you qualified in the task that the Lord gave you to do and now you are ready to be promoted to a new level.

• Of course with that new level will come more testing and learning.

• Matthew 25:21 His lord said to him, Well done, [you] good • and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will • make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord.

• This may speak of spiritual maturity or of a ministry office.

• If you dream of going to a school or University, it means that there is some knowledge that you lack and the Lord wants you to receive it.

• If you dream of a school you attended in the past and your emotions are intense, then what you are looking at is a good example of a healing or a purging dream relates to that era in your life.

Negative: If you dream that you have to write the same test repeatedly or repeat a grade, it means that you have not learned the lesson that you needed to learn in life.

• If you keep dreaming of a school you attended in the past, it could mean that there are still hurts from this area that are troubling you.

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

If you dream you are the student, you may be feeling inadequate or lacking in self-confidence.

If you were a teacher in the dream, it may point to problems dealing with the authority in general, or from one specific individual. From a spiritual point of view, some believe that we travel to the inner planes (the spiritual realm) in the dream state and there we may attend classes which assist us in our spiritual growth and development.

SCHOOL AND WORK

The Element Encyclopedia

Dreams that focus on school and the workplace reflect your anxiety about how well you are being perceived or how well you are performing in waking life.

If you are still at school, or if you have a job and your dream referred to your actual workplace, then your dreaming mind was probably referring to your everyday concerns.

If you have left school, or the school or workplace in your dreams is unfamiliar to you, your dreaming mind may have been suggesting a past feeling or experience that has relevance for your current situation. Such dreams could also indicate a sense of restriction and your resentment that you can’t spend your time doing what you want. They could also be commenting on your social interaction with your peers and authority figures, since relating to others is an essential part of school and work.

Jung regarded dreams as teachers and guides on the road towards wholeness; from his perspective, dreams that feature schools and teachers were especially significant because schools are places of learning and maturing into a healthy adult. Jobs are closely linked to self-esteem in waking life, so the type of job that features in your dream—and the reward or lack of reward associated with it—can be significant indicators of your feelings of self-worth and of the success or failure of your approach to life’s challenges.
