The influence these archetypes have upon our conscious self is varied. Panly they are supportive, as instincts are to an animal.
Some ancient cultures erected a pantheon of gods and goddesses. Many of these gods were expressions of archetypal themes, such as death, rebirth and womanhood.
A sheepdog has in itself, unconsciously, a propensity to herd animals under direction. Through the worship of gods, perhaps ancient people touched similar reservoirs of strength and healing. Without such, the individual might find it mcre difficult to face the fact that death waits at the end of their life, or to allow sexuality to emerge into their life at pube ty.
The dream of a girl suffering from anorexia shows her cutting off her own breasts with scissors. Here her developing sexual traits and urges are unacceptable to her. Perhaps she ‘cuts them off’ by not eating, thus preventing her body and psyche from maturing. In the past it would have been recommended that she give offerings to a goddess, thus aligning her with an unconscious power to adapt and mature.
Some of these archetypal patterns of behaviour, such as territorialism and group identity, are only too obviously behind much that occurs in war, and their influence needs to be brought more fully into awareness. But we must be careful in accepting Jung s descnption of the archetypes. In more recent years, through the tremendously amplified access to the unconscious made possible in psychiatry through such drugs as LSD, a lot more information about unconscious imagery has been made available.
It is possible thai certain synthesising aspects of the mind produce images to represent huge areas of collected experience, i.e. the Mystic Mother or Madonna representing our collected experience of our mother.
Whatever may be the explanation of these archetypal themes, they are imponant because they illustrate how we as individuals, and as human beings collectively, have been able to develop^ur sense of conscious identity amidst enormous forces of unconsciousness, collectivity and external stresses. Below are some common archetypal symbols and their associated images. ... archetypes dream meaning

You may feel a need in waking life to express yourself in some way, to be more creative or to enjoy public recognition.
If you are meeting an artist in your dreams, this suggests that you are becoming aware of an aspect of yourself that is creative. If, however, you are watching another artist at work, this suggests that you are recognizing artistic or creative ability in yourself but remain passive about it.
Dreaming of creating something will be less significant if you are a naturally creative person than if you are not.
If you have never been artistic or worked with crafts, dreaming that you are a potter making a pot—or an author completing a novel—may carry the implication that you should do so, or at least be more imaginative and creative in your waking life. See also LEISURE; MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY.... arts and crafts dream meaning

If many flowers are growing in your dream, this indicates feelings of wellbeing and optimism. The opposite will be the case if the flowers are dying or wilting. Do nature’s simple charms have great meaning for you, with your dream of wild flowers indicating the need for a simpler life? Or do you feel you are about to flower and fulfill your potential? Dreamers picking wild flowers may be turning away from their partner.
Cut flowers are unable to give pleasure in their natural setting and therefore may suggest artificiality and appearance over substance. Because flowers are a symbol of sexuality, fake or artificial flowers in a dream may suggest that those whom you think of as friends are actually showing you a false face or persona. On the other hand, flowers in a vase suggest a showcasing of your inner beauty or something that facilitates your personal development.
If you were arranging flowers in a vase or in a floral arrangement, try to remember if you did so carelessly or with great care. The positioning of flowers in dream floral arrangements can indicate how we unconsciously relate to others.
If your arrangement was artless or careless, you have a casual approach to relationships with others that may leave others feeling unimportant to you.
If you took extreme care with the arrangement, this can either indicate a positive, caring approach to relationships with others or controlling and manipulative tendencies. And if dried flowers appeared in your dream, this suggests that past relationships may be more important to you than the people with whom you are currently interacting in waking life.... wild, cut or artificial flowers dream meaning
Archetypal symbols in our dreams, Jung taught, are especially important as they carry potent healing energy, enabling us to change on inner levels that bypass pure intellect. The unconscious mind actually‘speaks’ in symbols—symbols are its language—so we accomplish change most powerfully when we communicate with the inner self using archetypal symbols instead of words. Let us say, for example, that you have an exceptionally clear and vivid dream about a robed, bearded figure—a typical image of the wise old man—and he is floating outside the windows of your home. Since the home often represents yourself, the dream might make you aware that you are seeing wisdom outside of yourself instead of within. But the presence of the archetypal symbol also tells us that our higher self seeks to intervene!
Or let’s say you dreamed of a valiant hero or heroine rescuing you from extreme danger. You may be hoping to be rescued by someone in your waking life. Your dreaming mind is urging you to accept assistance if it is given to you; it may also be urging you to find the hero or heroine, in other words courage, within yourself. Or you might have an archetypal dream of a mother bear. In the dream, this archetype of the great mother might be cuffing her young or refusing to feed them. Such a scene would give you important information about how you are nurturing others or yourself. Perhaps you neglected your basic needs. In some way, you are not ‘mothering yourself’ in a healthy and beneficial manner; your higher self seeks to call this to your attention.
On the other hand, in a time of loneliness in your life, you might dream of being held and comforted by a great mother figure—and wake up from the dream feeling energized and ready to go on. The great mother in your dream, in a very real way,‘kissed it and made it better’. In looking at these two views of the mother, you can see the opposite sides that Jung pointed out were an essential aspect of all archetypes. It is through integrating this duality that you can become whole and at peace.... archetypal healing dreams dream meaning
According to Jungians, the general interpretation of insects in dreams closely follows the way they are perceived in real life: as irritating and potentially dangerous creatures that often attack in great numbers. Some insects do, however, have qualities we can admire and although still able to annoy us, they can set a helpful example when they appear in dreams. Use your common sense and some general impressions about the specific insect when interpreting your dream. For example, if you dream about bees stinging you, think about some of your relationships; if ants appear, then consider you social interactions and work ethic.
If you dream about wasps, are you in some kind of danger? Bear in mind, though, that dreams featuring insects are generally warning you of some poisonous or dangerous influence in your waking life.
Insects can also represent irritating, small problems in daily life with which you feel powerless to deal or feelings you would rather do without. These might be feelings of guilt or regret, or something that you cannot quite recognize tugging at your conscience. More often than not, insects represent negative feelings; they can symbolize how life requires you to form a brittle shell; they can also sometimes completely replace your own body, as in Franz Kafka’s novella Metamorphosis.
Arachnids—here comprising scorpions, spiders and ticks—often have a different symbolism; many people suffer from severe phobias for spiders in particular.
If you are fearful of spiders in the waking world, they will quite often simply represent something of which you are terrified in your subconscious.... insects and arachnids dream meaning
If you favor a certain celebrity and you find yourself dreaming of them, it may refer to a physical or character trait that you wish to possess.
If you are an actor or actress, it may refer to the hard work that you have been putting into your job. Pay attention to the role you are playing; it may be a sign. Dreams of artists, photographers and cameramen may be suggesting that there is an artist or photographer within you that is crying out for expression. Take note of what you were drawing, painting, photographing or filming, as it could have special significance. A dream conductor or musician suggests an urge to control your creativity or to shape the destiny of others. Music is also often associated with spirituality, so a conductor may suggest spiritual aspirations. See also ARTS AND CRAFTS.... actor / artist dream meaning
Dreams of carpenters and architects represent that side of yourself that is creative but practical at the same time.

Lavender is one of the few essential oils that can be applied directly to the skin. It is frequently used in lotions and face creams since it is said to diminish wrinkles and bring a healthy glow to the skin over time. The effects of essential oils appear to be cumulative.
Lavender is known as a comforting, relaxing scent and is frequently recommended by aromatherapists and other holistic practitioners because of its calming influence. The scent of lavender can balance body and mind, and help induce sleep. When you are getting enough rest, you’re more likely to get more out of your dreams because you’re in good health. There are several ways you can use lavender to help you achieve restful sleep and dreaming. It can be placed in a diffuser, or on a cotton ball or piece of fabric tucked inside your pillowcase. You can make a room and pillow spray from water, witch hazel and lavender essential oil. The mixture should be kept in a dark glass bottle since sunlight can diminish the effects of essential oils. Simply spray a mist in the air around the bed or spray directly onto the pillows and sheets. You may want to test the fabric first to ensure that it doesn’t stain.
There are hundreds of aromatherapy oils with which you may want to experiment but make sure you follow safety guidelines or consult with an aromatherapist first. The following essential oils are all thought to reduce stress and encourage restful sleep and dreaming: lavender, vetiver, rosemary and chamomile. For essential oils thought to encourage lucid dreaming, you may want to try the following: clove—improves dream recall; mugwort increases visualization; anise— repels nightmares; clary sage—promotes intuitive awareness.... aromatherapy dream meaning

It is believed that the soul, when it is freed from the physical limits of the body, can float at ease over everything that it desires to possess, whereas in the waking state it cannot. When dreamers awaken, they still preserve the memory of these fantastic pictures. If the dreamer has a blemished soul, the dreamer is continually deluded by dreams, whereas the dreamer is unde- ceived when the soul is pure.
Traditional Arab belief also holds that dreams are generated by the fundamental humors of the human body, and that individuals dream accord- ing to their temperaments. Certain Arabs com- pletely separate the faculty of perception from the visible body and believe that individuals, when asleep, can leave their bodies and contem- plate the world with a lucidity proportional to their purity, a notion supported by various verses of the Qur’an. ... dreams in arabic culture dream meaning

The archetypes predispose us to subconsciously organize our personal experiences in certain ways. We are, for instance, predisposed to perceive someone in our early environment as a father because of the father archetype. If a person’s biological father is absent during childhood, someone else (e.g., an older brother) is assimilated into this archetype, providing concrete images for the father complex (the reflection of the father archetype in the personal unconscious).
Archetypes are not specific images or symbols. They are more like invisible magnetic fields that cause iron filings to arrange themselves according to certain patterns. For example, Jung postulated the existence of a self archetype, which constitutes the unconscious basis for our ego—our conscious self-image or self-concept. In dreams, this self is represented in a variety of ways, often in the form of a circle or mandala (a circular diagram used as an aid to meditation in Hinduism and Buddhism). The self can also be represented by surrogate symbols, such as four of almost anything (according to Jung, four is the number of whole- ness and hence a symbol of the self), a pattern Jung referred to as a quaternity. These concrete manifestations of elusive archetypes are referred to as archetypal images or, when they appear in dreams, as archetypal dream images.
Jung asserted that much of world mythology and folklore represents manifestations of the collective unconscious. He based this assertion on his discovery that the dreams of his patients frequently contained images with which they were completely unfamiliar, but which seemed to reflect symbols that could be found somewhere in the mythological systems of world culture. Jung further found that if he could discover the specific meaning of such images in their native culture, he could better understand the dreams in which they occurred. The process of seeking such meanings is referred to as amplification.... archetypes (archetypal dream images) dream meaning

Feeling distanced from what’s represented in the artwork, perhaps a feeling that it’s unattainable (since art is a representation rather than reality).
An opinion, belief, or other expression (as expressed by the artist).
For more clues to meaning, consider the subject and context of the piece, and how you felt about it.
Creating art can represent: expression, creativity, communication, freedom, releasing inhibitions (or the need for more of such); extra focus on or thought about the person or topic portrayed in the art; feeling particularly creative during the dream state.
