Steep Bridge Fear | Dream Interpretation

The keywords of this dream: Steep Bridge Fear


ABANDONMENT / FEAR / LOSS OF CONTROL

Dream images connected to feelings of abandonment, fear and loss of control all have some form of conflict as their theme. For example, dreams about missing a bus, train or airplane all point to some kind of tension in the dreamer about failing to achieve a goal. Dreams about being abandoned or left alone by a group of loved ones suggest feelings of anxiety about being left out, or being different from the crowd. Anxiously searching for the right road or path could point to fears about losing your identity.

If you are happily wandering alone in your dream, this may suggest a feeling that the source of your problems lies outside yourself. Dreams about anchors and lifeboats also tell of the fight for survival in daily life.

If you dream of being lost in dense vegetation, towering trees or tall reeds, you may feel that your progress is being thwarted by obstacles. As in the tale of ‘Hansel and Gretel’, this dream may evoke longing for the comfort and warmth of home.... The Element Encyclopedia

The details in the dream are just as important as the bridge itself.

The first consideration should be given to how much you travel.

The bridge can be interpreted literally if it is a part of your daily commute. On a more theoretical level, bridges can symbolize transitions (e.g. transition from one stage to another, from one level of consciousness to another). Since most bridges are over water (i.e. emotions, unconscious), this dream could also be symbolic of your rising above your emotional difficulties or unconscious drives....

BRIDGE

To see one, successful undertakings, probably a change; to cross one, work and anxiety in store; a broken bridge, fear and trouble and a warning to take no steps on an unknown road; to fall from a bridge denotes brain trouble (Artemidorus). These interpretations are distinctly traceable to the subconsciousness.

The symbolism of a bridge spanning water is obviously the subconscious hope of success. ‘Do not cross a bridge,” etc., is the proverb justifying the anticipation of work in store for the dreamer who crosses a bridge in his sleep.

The broken bridge bears its own significance, based upon the subconsciousness that warns the dreamer, while the fall from a bridge is a physical dream stimulated by dizziness, vertigo, etc.... The Fabric of Dream

BRIDGE

Example: Having been enjoying ourselves with some work mates at a social club, my husband and I are travelling down a country lane in an open horsedrawn car­riage.

It is dark. We come to a humpbacked bridge. As we arrive at the brow of the bridge a voice says, “Fair lady come to me”. I float and everything is black and peaceful. Then great fear overcomes me. I wake with terror and feelings of horror* (Evelyn K). Evelyn’s dream paints a vivid picture of her journey through life, drawn by the natural forces within her, shown as a horse. She has enjoyed life, but comes to the brow of her life, her 40th year, and feels it is all downhill now into old age, which horrifies her.

The bridge generally has this significance of crossing from one phase of life, activity or emphasis, to another. It depicts connection between yourself and a relationship; self and op­portunity; self and change in life. Fallen bridge: lost oppor­tunity, broken bonds and connections. Idioms, burn one’s bridges; cross that bridge when I come to it; water under the bridge. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

BRIDGE

A frequent symbol in dreams and mythology, the bridge spans an abyss.

It is often a place of danger and of falling; you are crossing a boundary. In the Catholic faith, the protector is Saint Napomuk, patron saint of bridges. Uniting, re-establishing relationships; contradictions are bridged.

If the dreamer has self-confidence, the fear of the abyss may be going away, but although the bridge becomes wider and is safe, it is still a place of danger.

The condition of the bridge is important. How are you feeling on the bridge? When you have crossed the bridge, you have done a lot of inner work. Changes have taken place (you have reached the other shore).

In the Koran, the bridge over hell is as thin as a thread and can only be crossed by the righteous. In Celtic lore, there exists a bridge of horror that is also as narrow as a thread.

The bridge always spans an abyss in which spirits, the devil, or God resides. Often in the dream one must bring a sacrifice in order to cross the bridge.

For that reason we often see chapels on the bridge where the sacrifice has to be offered. Jung related the symbol of the bridge to the unconscious. He saw the unconscious as different islands in the sea.

For him, the bridge connected these islands and is therefore a symbol of working toward a strong consciousness.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

BRIDGE

(see also Corridor, Crossing)

Freud lists four meanings of the bridge symbol:

(1) It may represent the male sexual organ, which ‘bridges the gap’ between male and female sexual partners.

(2) It may also symbolize birth - that is, the crossing from ‘the other world’ to this, or from womb to independent existence.

(3) It may represent (something that leads to) death - that is, a return to the womb, or to ‘the other world’, ‘the other side’.

(4) It may symbolize any sort of transition in the dreamer’s life. Freud gives the example of a woman who wants to be a man, and consequendy dreams of bridges that don’t quite reach the other side of the river. However, the symbolized change may be something that can be achieved more easily, but still possibly requiring will and determination; for example, a change of lifestyle, or a passing from middle years into old age.

To Freud’s list we may add the following:

(5) The bridge is a means of crossing a river, and even perhaps crossing from one country to another - foreign, new, strange - country. It may therefore svmbolize a critical juncture in the dreamer’s life, a situation that calls for a definitive decision, a decision which may be of such a radical kind that it could well be described figuratively as entering a new country.

(6) If the bridge you are crossing seems in danger of collapsing, this may reflect your anxiety about a transition in your life: for example, about whether you are going to be able to go through with a change from living on your own to living with a partner (or the reverse); from one job to another; from one set of values to another....

BRIDGE

The bridge is something that mediates between two separate points. So, the pontiff, as the title’s etymology indicates, represents a bridge between God and humanity. In many cultures, the bridge is the element that symbolically links the sensitive and the supersensitive (in China, for example, it is considered the symbol of union between heaven and earth). Without this mystical meaning, the bridge symbolizes a transition.

Dreaming of this symbol is a sign that you are evolving or undergoing a change. Perhaps it is a job, a move, or a relationship that will soon begin. In this case it will critical whether the oneiric bridge was firm and if you crossed it safely. It may also refer to something more spiritual: the reception of new values and the burial of the past. Another possibility is that you are trying to join two pieces of your life or to fill an empty space of your life.

BRIDGE

A bridge is essentially that which makes a connection between two separate entities. You are seeking to make connections within your own consciousness.

A dream about a bridge indicates that some sort of transition is taking place or that you are in search of a solution to what feels like an insurmountable problem. Since a bridge takes you from one place to another, it also carries the meaning of a transition in life. Since many bridges are suspended over water, an emotional issue is often the underlying conflict being expressed by this symbol.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Bridges often indicate literal travel. They also frequently represent life transitions. Because bodies of water symbolize the subconscious as well as the emotions, a bridge may indicate a structure that keeps one from falling into one’s subconscious or into one’s emotions (as in “bridge over troubled water”).

BRIDGE OF THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT

(arb. Sirat) This is the bridge people have to walk on after the Day of Resurrection to meet their Lord on the Day of Judgement.

The ease of crossing it depends on the weight of deeds one is carrying. Some cross like lightening, while others have to carry their burdens and move at varying paste. Walking on it in a dream means ajourney. Ifthe bridge caves under one’s feet in the dream, it means destruction and death. Seeing this bridge in a dream also represents knowledge, truth, believing in God’s oneness and following the teachings and example of God’s Messenger upon whom be peace.

If one’s foot slips while crossing in the dream, it means that he will miss the true path.

If one sees himself walking the path in a dream, it means that he is on the right track, follows what is commanded and abstains from what is forbidden. It also means that one will undergo awesome changes, undertakes major responsibilities and succeeds to reach safety. Ifone’s foot slips in a dream, it also means that he will fall into sin and deviate from the straight path.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

By being able to change shape, the drawbridge can distinguish between which is more important. In a dream, consider how the drawbridge is operating, for it will point to which mode has higher priority at the moment.

FEAR

We are confronted with many different fears in dreams, but they always refer to obstacles that are a mirror of our everyday—often unconscious—fears and insecurities. Nightmares often have physical causes; we have eaten too much, smoked too much, drunk too much alcohol. Often it is fear of illness (hypochondria), that needs to be overcome.

It is important to determine what made you become frightened.

Usually, this is about literal fear, or about undoing a mistake. On the other hand, such a dream might also suggest letting go of unnecessary fears. Fear can escalate into nightmares, showing the way to personal development. Fear is also connected to being too narrow, and is usually a sign that the dreamer is in search of a more broad, liberated alternative to his or her present lifestyle.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

FEAR

(see also Anxiety, Escape, Flight (= Fleeing))

Fear is a common theme in dreams and is the essence of what are called nightmares. Its significance may pardy depend on what, in the dream, is the object of your fear, but this will nearly always represent something within you - for example, some repressed emorion or insrinctive drive.

(1) What is frightening in a dream may represent (your encounter with) the unconscious in general, to the extent that it is still unexplored. Since - according to Jung - the unconscious compensates for the conscious mind and therefore contains qualities opposed to those of the conscious mind, you may well be frightened by it. However, those opposite qualities are there to round out vour personality as you go through life, till you achieve wholeness; so, overcome your fear and get acquainted with what vour unconscious contains. The unconscious may be represented in dreams by

anything deep and / or dark (cellar, well, sea, black sky, etc.) or by a mother figure or brother / sister. (On the shadow) See also Mother; Brothcr / Sistcr.

(2) The frightening thing may represent some particular content of the unconscious, usually something you have repressed - guilt- feelings and fears of punishment, sexuality, anger, etc. Sexuality and anger are sometimes represented in dreams by wild animals. (On repression) See also Animal(s).

(3) A father figure or other authority figure may feature in a dream that expresses fear or guilt. This is because self-condemnation and anxiety often derive from childhood fears of father’s (real or imagined) disapproval, prohibitions or expectations. According to Freud, all other fears of punishment get their energy from the fear of castration, which, for a male child, forms part of the Oedipus complex. In a dream castration may be represented by the cutting off of any part of the body. (For Oedipus complex) See also Castration.

(4) Fear of mother may appear in dreams, where mother as an object of fear may be represented by a spider, or water, or crocodile, or dragon. Are you in danger of being overwhelmed by your mother or your mother-attachment?

(5) Fear of castration does not appear in women, but its place is taken by fear of losing mother’s love; and for both sexes mother is the first object of love, and so any fear of loss of love in later life (e.g. that of a spouse) may evoke that earliest fear associated with mother.

(6) Something representing a man’s anima or a woman’s animus may be the frightening thing in the dream. This would suggest that you have repressed or neglected your anima / animus, probably because you find it difficult to acknowledge that the human psyche is bisexual, the woman’s unconscious having strong male characteristics (centring round the use of reason, competitiveness, etc.) and the man’s having strong female characteristics (centring on feeling, relatedness, etc.).

If you are a woman with a tendency to be bossy or argumentative, you have not brought your animus into consciousness - which is why it sometimes erupts.

If you are a man given to emotional outbursts, you need to give your anima a proper place in your conscious life; then it will cease to behave in an embarrassing way and will instead complement your masculinity in a creative cooperation. (For anima / animus, see Brother / Sister, sections (4)-(6))

(7) Does the frightening thing seem evil? If so, it will probably represent some part of you that is destroying or threatens to destroy your inner peace or outward efficiency. Bear in mind that nearly everything in your unconscious has two aspects: a threatening or disgusting aspect, when it is shut away and neglected; and a positive, creative aspect, when it is acknowledged and given an appropriate place in your conscious life. See also Demons, Devil, Evil.

(8) According to Freud, anxiety dreams are invariably disguised wish- fulfilments. For example, a dream in which you are anxious about a person’s health may reveal an unconscious resentment or hatred of the person. Take this possibility seriously: repressed negative emotions are very common. See also Anxiety.

(9) Fear of falling is a common dream theme. See Falling.

(10) Does the fear felt in the dream bring the dream to a premature end? See the advice given under Falling, section (2).... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

FEAR

Being very close to truth and frightened to look at it. The other side of fear is insight. Seeing unknown parts of self and fearful of acknowledging them; resistance. Anything feared must be faced in order for it to go away. Your greatest fear is change; ironically, to change is the only reason you are here.... The Dream Books Symbols

FEAR

Fear in dreams reflects a latent state of anxiety. Insecurity, fears, and concerns are taking a worrying toll on you. First, to interpret such dreams properly, you must analyze the events of recent days, without ruling out the possibility that you recently watched a horror movie or read a scary story that has affected you unconsciously, and filtered into your dreams. Often these grisly scenes resurrect dark parts of your past, repressed in the unconscious. The purpose of these dreams is to remind you what you are afraid of. They are the ideal opportunity to discover and resolve what frightens you. To be afraid in a dream reveals, according to the Freudian school, an intense guilty

complex. (See ABYSS, ACCIDENT, and DEMON)

Popular superstition about this dream is very similar to the opinions of modern psychology.

If in dreams you conquer that which you fear, the same will happen with the things that scare you in real life.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

FEAR

In the majority of cases, dreams that make you feel scared, terrified, anxious or afraid in some way are described as nightmares, but some dreams can express your waking fears or anxieties in symbolic and thoughtprovoking ways. In some cases they may show you how to confront or face your fears. Dreams in which you are falling, drowning, being chased, crushed or captured may occur when you have done something of which you feel ashamed or that you know is wrong; your dream is a form of self-punishment. Other dream researchers believe that such dreams are caused by the suppression of forbidden or hidden instincts.

Discussing such dreams with others may help to ease your fears.

Any dream in which you are attacked or pursued is also a representation of fear; you should try to identify who or what is attacking or chasing you.

Facing your dream demons may help to understand and resolve them in waking life. Dreams in which you are being attacked or threatened by animals are sending a clear message that you have suppressed your instincts too much and need to be more natural, or loosen up, in waking life. Dreams in which an intruder breaks into your house are extremely common and they also express a fear or concern about a specific person or situation in your waking life. Try to identify the intruder, as this will give you a clue to the interpretation.

If you experience paranoia in your dream, or have an irrational fear in your dream of going mad or insane, this will reflect an uncertain situation in your waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

RIVER / BRIDGE / CANAL / DAM / RESERVOIR

Rivers and streams always represent the way you live your life, as well as the way you see your life. Did you dream of a mean-dering river or one that was direct? The first would suggest emotional ups and downs, whilst the second would suggest emotional calm. Dreams of being carried along by a river or stream can refer to the passage of life from birth to death, but they are more likely to refer to your emotional life. How you felt in the dream will indicate the meaning; were you frightened, happy or excited? If the river is rushing by, this may suggest that you feel life is moving too quickly.

If it the river is static, your unconscious may have been commenting on your lack of drive and direction.

If you threw a stone in the river, did the ripples that formed echo your sense of going around in circles in waking life? The river depicts the richness or poverty of your life energy, so if you are crossing a river in your dream, this suggests you are in the process of making great changes in your life.

If you are in the water to cross, it means you will feel a lot of emotions in the process of change.

If you see someone else cross the river or fall into the river, this may refer to your feelings about aging and the passage of time.

If the river is contaminated, this suggests that you are holding back your feelings in waking life and not doing the best you can for yourself.

If you were in a river—or steamboat in your dream, this may refer to the circumstances that surround you, for example your family or home life. The context of the dream and how you feel will all help you with the interpretation. Was the boat solid and safe like a steamer, or fragile like a canoe or a dingy?

Canals, dams and reservoirs are all designed to regulate water flow and in dreams they suggest conscious attempts to control emotion; how effective they are at directing the water mirrors how effective you have become at controlling your emotions in waking life. A canal may also symbolize the birth canal and thus represent a desire for children. Because reservoirs are where water is collected and stored, if one features in your dream, could it be commenting on your own emotional reserves? The water level of the reservoir in this dream is important.

If it is high, your emotional resources are abundant but if it is low, you may be feeling emotionally drained by the demands of others. In dreams, dams also suggest control over your emotions, and their effectiveness in your dream will say a lot about your emotional health. If, in your dream, you were standing on a bridge watching the water flow beneath you, you could be ready to leave the past behind—as suggested by water under the bridge—since you are at a turning point in your life (the bridge is a symbol of transition).
