A computer is a symbol of the rational unemotional part of your mind, but it can also suggest your personal potential or abilities, your memories and stored information, and even your unexplored potential. The computer and other high- tech gadgetry are such a part of our lives now that their meaning depends very much on the other images in your dream.
If you work a lot with computers, they may simply be a means to an end but they may also be a reminder of your potential or abilities. Keyboards have replaced typewriters and are—along with slots for floppy disks, CD-ROMs and DVDs—Freudian symbols of female sexuality. Computer screens or monitors are associated by Jungians with the search for knowledge in cyberspace, whilst computer hackers are associated with Jung’s trickster archetype in their ability to bring chaos to order. The computer hard drive can represent conscious, physical and material side of you, with the software representing your inner self and the curser and mouse the direction your life needs to take.
If a cursor is frozen or a hard drive crashes in your dream, this could suggest obstacles and blockages that stop you progressing in waking life. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia
(1) In mythology and folklore a hero rescues an imprisoned beautiful young w oman, slaying a dragon or other monster that is keeping her a prisoner.
If this scenario appears in a man’s dreams, they may be calling on him to rescue his anima from its imprisonment in the unconscious, to utilize this previously hidden and abused feminine side of his nature, and so attain a proper balance in his personality. (For anima) See also Dragon.
(2) When Theseus saved Ariadne from the Minotaur, he had to make his way through a labyrinth; Perseus cut off Medusa’s head to rescue Andromeda. Both labyrinth and Medusa may be negatively charged symbols of mother.
If such an image appears in a hero-rescuing-damsel dream, it may be taken as indicating that the dreamer needs to free
himself from an emotional entanglement with - or all-consuming dependence on - his mother. Only then will he be able to let the feminine in himself express itself. (If he doesn’t let it express itself, it will still do so - but in destructive emotional outbursts.)... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
A dream in which you find yourself deformed in some way is most likely a selfcritical dream; its interpretation will depend upon what body part or body parts are disfigured.
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
To dream that you have a disability suggests that you are going through a period of low self-confidence. You may feel like you have lost your power or direction in life. It’s quite possible that you are not making the most of your potential and skills. Consider the symbolism of the part of your body that is disabled. Also look up “Blind”, “Can’t Hear”, “Can’t Talk” and “Wheelchair”... My Dream Interpretation
To see yourself disabled in a dream probably means that you feel as if something or someone was stealing your self confidence. However, this dream can also be due to the fact that you can’t act as you wish in real life. The feelings of negativity themselves may be the cause of not being able to move or advance.
With patience, you will have success.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Anything that limits normal ranges of functionality, mental or physical, might fall under the broad category of disability. In a general way, the symbolic meaning of such a state relates to the limitations the disability creates. Since the capacity for excellence begins with perception, the interpretation of any disability begins with the notion that something is challenging because it appears to be so.
If a particular disability in a dream is not one that is mirrored in waking life, then the dream is expressing a perceived diminishment of capacity and the call to overcome its sense of limitation. Use the specific disability for distinctions in your interpretation.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

To dream that people or objects are disappearing before your eyes, signifies your anxiety and insecurities over the notion that loved ones might leave your life. You may feel that you cannot depend on someone or that you are all alone. You need to work on improving your self-esteem.

Dreaming of a missing person or object denotes repression, shyness, feelings of inferiority, and shame. In short: fear. Especially when the disappeared object has a sexual connotation.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
(Absence; Becoming unknown; Loss of tracks) If one disappears from his house or from the country, and if his tracks could not be located in the dream, it means taking a long journey, turning out to be where he is suspected to be, getting married in that place, falling in love with an unknown person, falling sick in a foreign land, or it could mean death ifthe person is sick. However the disappearance of God’s loving people in a dream perhaps means thinking about one’s beloved, or being exposed to uncommon mysteries of the universe.
If one disappears within the earth without going through a hole in his dream, and ifhe remains a long time therein until people think that he will never come out again in the dream, it means self-deception, arrogance and love for the wor ld, and such a person will die in that pursuit as a consequence of adventuring with his own life.

Warning or fear of danger. Alternatively, consternation over your ability to survive upheavals.
Avalanche: Feeling trapped, frozen, or unable to act. Or, an overwhelmingly heavy burden that you feel was thrust upon you unwillingly (see Ice, Snow).
Cave in: Tlie crumbling of foundations or an insecure position. Also a type of burial dream.
Earthquake: Something is shaking your foundations, potentially to the core of what you regard as truth. Alternatively, breaking up with, or away from, a person, organization, job, or situation.
Flood: Feeling swept away by uncontrolled emotions or overpowering circumstances. Alternatively, a thorough cleansing before a new start (see Water).
Hurricane or tornado: An alternative symbol of the air element, which relates to the mind, voice, or breath. In this case, however, the element is destructive, probably revealing ill-health or an overly active conscious mind that does not allow the intuitive self through.
If related specifically to speech, this symbolizes an individual whose loudmouthed nature destrovs much of what it contacts.
Landslide: Backward movement or retreat. Returning to old thought forms and behavior patterns.
Oil spill: A renewed awareness of personal responsibility toward nature. Alternatively, a defiled trust, the adulteration of an ideal, or a slipperv situation.
Volcano: These are Earth’s cauldrons that stir up your temper or other hot feelings that have already been building to the point of violent eruptions (see Fire). Find a safe outlet before someone gets hurt.
If the volcano exhibits a slow lava flow, this represents a gradual venting of emotions.... The Language of Dreams
When nature pushes the elements to the extreme, the result is often explosive.
Volcanoes and lightning create fire, an unstable earth unleashes quakes and avalanches, water creates floods and drought, and air stirs hurricanes and typhoons into furious motion. Manmade disasters also create explosive and devastating results. People’s lives are tragically ended or irreparably damaged in seconds, panic and fear take over, and the best and worst of human nature is exposed. It is small wonder, then, that the unconscious often employs the symbols of catastrophe and disaster to provide striking and memorable dream images or messages.
Dreams of disaster, such as those involving earthquakes and plane crashes, can be extremely detailed, intense, colorful and vivid. You may wake up terrified and concerned for your safety, or for the safety of loved ones. To dream of any kind of disaster is always unsettling, but it is important to point out that such dreams are rarely prophetic or precognitive; it is much more likely that they are an expression of your hidden fears or anxieties concerning events you feel are beyond your control. A disaster dream may be expressing anxiety about what the future will bring, or highlighting the fact that you are trying to do too many things, or trying to please too many people, at the expense of your own peace of mind. On the other hand, disaster dreams can also reveal great inner change and growth, but this change and growth may make you feel temporarily uncertain of yourself, your direction in life and your position in the world.
Group disaster dreams can be particularly frightening and they may even recur, making it easier to assume that they might be warnings of actual events. Although there are rare exceptions, it is important to point out that vehicles and locations crowded with people who experience disaster are usually symbolic, reflecting our experience with a social influence or a reallife group. For example, if you dream of being in a bus crash that leaves you dazed and miles from home, you may be feeling increasingly disillusioned and detached from the goals of your place of work; your hopes of achieving satisfaction in that area of your life may in fact be already wrecked. Your dreaming mind may be telling you that you have gone as far as you can with that group of people, or course of action, and it is time to change your approach or lifestyle.
In some instances, dreams about disaster that involve surroundings or people you know may be a simple warning. For example, you may have forgotten that your car is due for a service, but your unconscious remembers and tries to draw your attention to this oversight in a dream in which you are driving your car and the brakes suddenly fail.
If you have lived through a natural or manmade disaster, your dream may also be recalling the horrific events in an attempt to help you come to terms with the trauma. According to Gestalt therapists, dreams that repeat a disturbing event or focus on disaster scenarios following an experience of physical or emotional trauma are reminding the dreamer that there is an emotional scar that needs attention and healing.
Finally, when trying to interpret any dream that involved a natural disaster, remember that if you live in an area that is prone to them your dream may simply be reflecting your anxiety about being caught up in such a catastrophe. The same applies to manmade disasters, such as terrorist attacks or train crashes. Your dream may be triggered by the climate of fear, and intense media coverage and speculation that now surround these tragic events. See also ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES; NIGHTMARES.... The Element Encyclopedia
Dreaming about natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, is not that uncommon. People usually have these dreams at a time of many changes in their lives. Most people have ambivalent feelings about change and some resist even positive changes. Therefore, quick shifts in life style or some type of crisis may bring about dreams of natural disasters. Please look up a specific disaster by name. See also: Flood, Earthquake, Tornado ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
(Astray; Heedlessness; Ingratitude; Irreligious; Profane) In a dream, disbelief represents a rich person or becoming one. Disbelief in God Almighty in a dream also means illness, injustice or causing harm to others. Acting silly or impudent or stupidly, or being censured or discredited in a dream also indicates profanity and disbelief in God Almighty. Going astray in a dream means committing a sin or making a mistake. Making a mistake in a dream also signifies heedlessness in wakefulness. Ifone’s profanity becomes public knowledge in a dream, it means that he will commit a forgery or make false testimony in court. Disbelief in a dream also means ingratitude or it could denote the state of a sick person when he lies in his deathbed and awaits for his soul to be taken back to its Lord.

Dreams of a disease symbolize that you’ve been going against your grain, ignoring your instincts and indulging in fearful thoughts. You are venting out a negative influence that someone or something has had on you as you realize that your thoughts have a viral effect on everyone around you. This dream may be a message for you to take care of your health in order to avoid challenges that could arise from an imbalance.
If you are dealing with an actual disease, this dream could be helping you to heal or gain an insight into its remedy. See Disease, Sick and Venting Dreams.... Strangest Dream Explanations
To dream of disease in general actually signifies happy times for you ahead.
If the dream involved the illness of someone known to you, it predicts good luck for that person. However, if your dream concerned a sexually transmitted disease (such as HIV or AIDS, genital warts, etc) then it is a strong warning that someone is trying to ruin your reputation. Beware of confiding in people you are not 100 percent sure you can trust.... My Dream Interpretation
Disease is never a positive picture. It speaks of sin, being unclean and of contamination. It also speaks of being under a curse as this Scripture indicates: • Deuteronomy 28:60 Moreover he will bring upon you all the diseases of Egypt, which you were afraid of; and they will cleave to you.

(1) If someone close to you features in a dream as suffering from some disease which in reality he or she does not have, then it is possible that your dream expresses either genuine anxiety for the person or a hidden hostile wish. See also Dead / Death, section (3).
(2) If the diseased person in the dream is you, the dream may be referring to an actual physical illness, or to some psychological disease or inner conflict.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Dreaming of a disease indicates that, despite not being aware of it, you suffer emotional or health problems. In this case, the episode not only freely expresses your emotional reaction to this situation but also contains important messages that may contribute to your healing. Keep in mind, however, that each condition generates its own recurring dreams. For example, people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness often dream of clocks and other time references, which means that they have a keen sense of the time left in their lifespan. In contrast, for those with cancer is not surprising to dream of scenes in which cars suddenly lose control and crash. These images usually represent the fast growth of cancer cells. Likewise, cancer patient often dream of issues related to contamination or poisoning. However, it is noted that dreaming of a disease is common, and the protagonist does not have to suffer any condition. In these cases, the oneiric perceptions may simply reflect a need for affection.
If you have this kind of dream, the African belief recommends you visit the healer. In general, superstitious people consider the meaning of this dream opposite. Therefore, it portends a long period of good health.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Some people believe that dreams can sometimes spot illness before your waking self is aware of its symptoms, so if a dream of disease persists or you can’t shake the memory of it, get your health checked by a doctor. On the other hand, the dream may be focusing on anxieties and inner conflicts with which you need to deal so that you can move forward with your life and find emotional harmony. Dreams that feature disease as a theme may refer to some discomfort or uncertainty in your waking life. Perhaps someone in particular is making life difficult for you?
If you have leprosy in a dream, do you feel like a social outcast? If another person is unwell in your dream and you recognize them, you may either harbor negative feelings towards that particular person or fear for their emotional health. Memories of childhood illnesses, such as chicken pox or measles, may express a simple longing for the unconditional love of a parent. For Jungians, dreams of fainting may be prompted by a sudden insight into the essential nature of a personal ambition, whilst for Freud these are wish-fulfillment dreams relating to orgasm.
According to ancient predictive dreamlore, your interpretation of dreams concerning your health should reverse the state of health pictured in the dream. Dreams of poor health, therefore, predict a period of good health, whilst dreams of disease suggest a period of good health.... The Element Encyclopedia
If the body is diseased in a dream, this suggests a sickness of attitude or it could simply indicate extreme emotional and physical fatigue. A dismembered body indicates emotional and mental distress; perhaps you are tearing yourself apart over something or someone, or your life is falling apart. Half a body dream images suggest a lack of balance in your life between your outer and inner life.
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

Dreams of yourself or other people in disguise can often suggest change. The wearing of a mask relates to the appearance you present to others (as well as to yourself), and sometimes it is hard to remove the mask, perhaps because you are being forced to wear the mask by others. This may be a warning that you risk losing all sense of self. Notice who was disguised in the dream and what they were disguised as.
If they were disguised as something sinister, perhaps this suggests fears in your everyday life.
If they were disguised as something light- hearted, perhaps this is an element of wish-fulfillment, reflecting a desire to drop pretences and replace them with more fun and spontaneity in your life.
According to Jungian symbolism, wearing a veil over your head indicates a desire to be invisible and to withdraw from the outside world.... The Element Encyclopedia

Broken, damaged, or dirty dishes are a forerunner of family quarrels or domestic problems.... The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams
In dreams, a dish usually represents food that needs to be eaten now, and thus represents ideas or projects that should be tackled immediately. Jungians often see a drinking glass or wineglass as a symbol of the mythical Holy Grail, offering the dreamer spiritual sustenance. For Freudians, to dream of drinking from a glass expresses sexual desire, as like other receptacles, the glass symbolizes the female genitals. A broken drinking glass can represent loss of virginity. Food and drink are everyday items that regularly feature in dreams. In general, they are regarded as positive signs, but there are so many possible interpretations when food or drink—or eating and drinking—feature in a dream that a whole chapter has been devoted to the subject later on.

Dreams that feature some kind of disobedience, mutiny and rebellion are about conflict with authority, such as a parent, a teacher, a corporation or even the government.
If you were disobedient or rebellious in your dream, whose authority were you up against? To whom is it that you feel you need to assert your individuality and independence? On the other hand, your unconscious may have simply allowed you to give vent to feelings of resentment in the safety of the dream world.
If you dreamed that you refuse to comply with your boss, or with someone who gives you directions in waking life, this may reflect your mounting anger or exhaustion in the face of demands and responsibilities being placed upon you.
If you felt liberated in your dream, perhaps this is a sign that you need to stand up for yourself more in waking life.
If you were involved in a mutiny, do you long to rebel against authority? If you went on strike, such a dream may reflect feelings of frustration and exhaustion in waking life.
If you found yourself engaged in arm wrestling, are you engaged in a real-life battle of wills? An alternative explanation for dreams of rebellion against an enemy, known or unknown is that you are in revolt against some part of yourself. Try to remember what you rebelled against in your dream and why, and see if you can draw a parallel in waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

Displacement of aggression from a threatening target to a less threatening one is a common human and animal practice.
If we are angry at our partner we may kick the cat or nag at the children instead of confronting the real target. Freud stated that in dreams we express what we usually censor, or would be censored socially, in terms of behaviour or sexuality, but often in a displaced way. What appears to be most important and full of emotion in the dream may, according to this statement, be really of least significance. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

This dream often occurs when an internal conflict is taking place or when you have to make a difficult emotional decision. As with real-life disputes, reaching a happy medium means the best solution. Nothing is black or white. On the other hand, this dream is trying to express those emotions that you do not normally show.
If you know the person you are arguing with, it may represent aspects of your nature that you do not accept. Its meaning can also be literal and you are truly resentful of that person.
Superstition says that this dream portends unhappy relationships in love
Ifone undresses himself in a dream though not knowing whether he did so for good or for an unlawful purpose, or ifhe strips himselffrom his clothing in a public place, feels shy and tries to cover his private parts in the dream, it means that his private life will be exposed and that he will be disgraced.
If he takes off his garment in public and does not feel ashamed of his nakedness in a dream, it means that he will be credited for his honesty.
If the person is sick in real life, it means that he will recover. Ifhe is indebted, it means that he will repay his debts. Ifhe is seized with fear, it means that he will regain his peace. Nakedness in a dream also means injustice. Stripping a dead person of his shroud means divorce, loss in business, repentance from sins, or it could mean guidance.

In the 1800s, sexual dreams were considered to be a great source of worry to the men and women who had them because, at the time, sexual dreams were thought to cause mental and physical illness. It is, however, over-simplistic to describe all sexual dreams as a form of frustration or wish-fulfillment. The desire to have sex is a healthy human urge and your dreams allow you to give free reign to this urge as well as to indulge in all kinds of erotic experiments in which no emotional or physical harm is inflicted upon any one.
If you do wake up from a dream in which you have had sex with someone inappropriate or that contains graphic, disturbing or violent imagery, there is most likely to be a nonsexual interpretation. However, if you do find the dream distressing and it repeatedly recurs, be sure to seek professional counseling. Unless your erotic dreams are seriously disturbing (when psychiatric help should be sought), there is no reason why you should not enjoy them like any other fantasy.... The Element Encyclopedia
Disturbing dreams aren’t quite nightmares. They may cause you to wonder what exactly your sub-conscious is trying to tell you.
First, the dreams could be unconscious advice. Maybe in some way you are betraying yourself, forgetting something, or not fulfilling a potential. For example, persons on the edge of a midlife career change may have dreams about being in school and searching for a missing classroom, or they may find themselves in a class about to take a final exam while realizing that they completely forgot to attend the class all year. Thus the feeling of panic in the dream points to the real feeling of panic in their current life about the failure of their present career.
Second, the dreams could be an admonition, based in guilt. Imagine, for example, that you are embezzling the bank for which you work. Then you start having dreams about burglars breaking into your home.
Well, the dreams are simply a depiction of something happening to you that is similar to the hurt or moral injury you are inflicting on someone else. This same dynamic often occurs in children’s nightmares: in waking life, children often experience angry feelings toward their parents and yet lack the cognitive capacity to express these feelings openly; so, in unconscious guilt, the anger becomes turned against themselves as threatening nightmare images.
Third, the dreams could be hints of a repressed trauma. As I say above, nightmares often accompany the emotional pain of a traumatic event experienced in adulthood. But if a trauma in childhood is repressed, dreams reflecting the emotional intensity of the trauma can persist throughout life—as a repetition compulsion—until the trauma is eventually brought to conscious awareness and healed.
Finally, the dreams could be psychic premonitions. This is a rare phenomenon, but it does happen to some persons.
The best advice we’ve found about disturbing dreams is to just ignore them. You can try to analyze the images you find, but that is most likely not going to give you the answers you need.... Dreampedia
If you dream that you have an eating disorder, most often this signifies that you have this problem in real life. But if you eat healthfully in your waking life, then this dream signifies your need of spirituality and fulfillment in your waking life.

If you dream of a friend being anorexic or bulimic, again this could signify an actual eating disorder they have.

Mostly, entering the abode of the hereafter in a dream means travels or migration from one’s homeland.

Scientists have found that the human brain is washed during sleep through a study on 13 subjects. According to the research, blood flows out of the brain during sleep, while the cerebrospinal fluid washes the brain.
A team led by Laura Lewis, who is working at Boston University, made an interesting scientific discovery. The team, which has been working on the human brain for a while, has discovered that when people sleep, their brains are washed with cerebrospinal fluid. So your brain is completely washed through rhythmic and breakthrough waves while you sleep.
According to previous studies, Lewis says that they already know that neurons in the brain have electrical wave activities, but that they have discovered that there are also waves in the cerebrospinal fluid. Scientists have illustrated the phases of the brain during sleep so that the research can be done, and the images we will share with you shortly reveal how this washing process will be.
According to the data obtained in the research, after the people sleep, the brain neurons do not function, and the blood flows out of the brain. It is precisely at this time that the cerebrospinal fluid comes into play and washes the brain from beginning to end. Laura Lewis states that the findings from the research are very important because she hopes that these findings may lead to new discoveries.
Lewis’ hopes are about psychological and neurological discoveries. Because brain waves can combine with blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid, especially for the investigation of age-related normal impairments. The reason for this is that as people age, their brains produce less and slower waves. So this research could both open a new door and be a glimmer of hope, especially for the treatment of alzheimer’s disease.
Lewis made this important discovery with 13 people aged between 23 and 33. Considering getting help from the subjects at older ages in the ongoing processes of his research, Lewis states that they can understand how the movement in the brains of people who are older is going to be. Lewis says that so they can make a new discovery about alzheimer’s.... Dreampedia

Disaster dreams typically indicate that something is terribly wrong with your life or about to go wrong if the current situation remains unchanged. They will tell you that a job, a relationship, a religion, or a conscious attitude is not good for you and is leading you to crisis.
If the disaster in the dream is specifically manmade and not natural, such as a terrorist attack, or a plane, train, car, or bus crash, this image may be urging you to change an attitude or belief system before the situation in waking life becomes perilous. These dreams are telling you that you are not in a safe place and you need to move away from it.
Oftentimes, the unconscious will use cultural symbols and images to bring to mind some thematic experience or situation. For example, to dream of the attack on the World Trade Center can be symbolic of a tragedy, a horrendous situation, an attack, or the destruction of one’s working environment. Similarly, any form of terrorist attack can be symbolic of an intrusive invasion of your personal space in waking life, a violent clash of opinions or cruel, sadistic and cowardly behavior.
If you dreamed of making a panicstricken call to the emergency services, could your unconscious have been highlighting your fear that an emotional trauma has devastated your world, or is about to, and that you urgently need help? A dream focusing on a disaster in your home may be saying something about your attitude to life. It might be that you are ready to make important changes that will involve destroying what you have built up over the years, or it could be a warning that your present, or planned, actions could prove disastrous in the long run. Much depends on your reaction. Supposing that you dreamed your house was falling down; if you were relieved, unconcerned or walked away from the ruins, you are ready to move on and leave the past behind you.
You may have had a dream that focused on manmade environmental pollution and the disease, destruction, decay and death to which this leads.
If you have had such a dream, the dream is urging you to avoid an attitude, thought or emotion that is not good for you, now or in the future.
Other people’s attitudes and beliefs may also be contaminating the way you think and feel, and this can sometimes be shown in dreams about toxic waste or poisons. On the other hand your dream may be urging you to become more environmentally aware.
If demolition features in the dream, it can highlight either self-inflicted trauma or changes in your life, depending on the circumstances of the dream.
If you are carrying out the demolition, you should be in control, but if someone else is, you may feel powerless in the face of change. You may also be conscious of a build-up of tension within you that can only by released by a breakdown of old attitudes and approaches.... The Element Encyclopedia
The desire to hurt yourself through sex in dreams is a symbol of guilt or the desire to feel extreme emotion. Perhaps you are not allowing yourself to feel deeply in waking life? In dreams, any form of sadism would suggest a counterbalance to the dreamer’s conscious way of being in the world. For example, a timid person may have dreams of sadistic sex as an escape mechanism; similarly, a domineering person may have the dream to show an unconscious need to be controlled. The explicit eroticism of sadomasochistic acts could also suggest a battle of wills or extreme sexual tension.... The Element Encyclopedia

(Bonesetter) An orthopedist who corrects skeletal deformities and sets broken bones in a dream represents a pious governor who governs with justice, teaches righteousness, balances substances and conforms to equanimity. Seeing an orthopedist in a dream also means presumptuousness, might and audacity. He also represents officiousness, adroitness and resoluteness, for he discards the deficient and brings together what is broken. Seeing an orthopedist in a dream also means distress and trouble. He also represents an architect, and an architect represents an orthopedist in a dream. Thus, seeing him in a dream also means construction and could represent a generous person who comforts, accommodates and helps a needy person, or a wise man who comforts the broken hearts, ajust judge, a great scholar, a shoe repairman, or a tailor. Ifone sees himself standing before an orthopedist in a dream because of a broken bone or another fracture and then complains about an abscess in his neck, and if the orthopedist opens that abscess with pliers to drain the puss in the dream, then it represents a debt one has to repay, or a votive offering one has to fulfill, or it could mean giving a testimony in court, or accepting the ruling of a scholar. Ifan orthopedist sets one’s broken right arm and ties it to his neck in a dream, it means that someone will oblige him to do him a personal favor and consequently deprive him from attending other duties, or restrain him from serving other charities.
The same interpretation is given for a broken leg.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

(1) Paradise may represent a desire to return to the innocent problem- free simplicity of early childhood.
However, this is wrongheaded, because it is unrealistic. The garden of Eden prior to Adam’s ‘fall’ represents the oneness and harmony of all things when all things are still unconscious. With the rise of conscious thinking, distinctions and dilemmas arise, and the agonizing ‘Should I do this or that?’ (= Adam’s eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil). A desire to return to childhood in a dream is neurotic: in it reality has been ousted by fantasy - because reality was too painful. What particular reality’ (i.e. experience) are you trying to blot out?
(2) A more realistic option is that paradise represents a desire to achieve in the psyche the balance and wholeness that have been present latently and potentially from the beginning.
(3) If your dream contains, not just a paradisal feeling, but an actual physical representation of the garden of Eden (e.g. with four rivers dividing it into four quarters), this may be an instance of (2) above. See also Mandala.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
This is a wonderful, peaceful, quiet dream, and sometimes even romantic. This may be a sign that you may need more peace and quiet in your daily life. Or maybe the dream is telling you that you are very fortunate because in real life you are living in an earthly paradise. The idea of paradise is found in all cultures. We can define it as a spiritual state of absolute bliss and balance that we want to reach.
Dreaming of paradise can denote a longing to enjoy a charmed life with little work and responsibilities. Just like the umbrella, it is a clear sign of immaturity, as you tend to get carried away by laziness and fantasy.
If you dream that you are banished from paradise, it could refer to the end of something pleasant, or even a guilty conscience.
If in your dream paradise palm trees appear, the good luck promised by this dream doubles. Among sailors, it was believed to predict a save and lucky journey.
Paralysis To dream of paralysis indicates an unwillingness to make certain commitments to society and yourself. A lack of confidence in your own potential leads to you stop acting and feel progressively paralyzed. Because of this state of mind, in your dreams you appear unable to move and, thus, decide for yourself.
If you dream that it is others who are paralyzed, they can represent those aspects of yourself that you do not externalize. Similarly, if you dream of a paralyzed animal, it can refer to your instincts and inhibited sexual feelings.
There is a belief that claims that nightmares are huge spirits that sit on top of us while we sleep. Thus the feeling of paralysis is explained.

The following precognitive disaster dreams certainly challenge our preconceptions and rational explanations about how the world and the dreaming mind relate to one another.
In his book Recollections of Abraham Lincoln, 1847-1865, Ward Hill Lamon relates a dream Lincoln had shortly before his death. In the dream, Lincoln heard a group of people mournfully weeping downstairs in the White House, but when he went to investigate, he found no mourners, although their desperate weeping continued. Upon entering the East Room he discovered a corpse wrapped in funeral vestments. Demanding of one of the soldiers stationed there, ‘Who is dead in the White House?,’ he received the reply, ‘The President. He was killed by an assassin.’ A day before the SS Titanic’s demise, a woman on the infamous ship dreamt of the horrible event that was to occur the next day. She told her husband, who scoffed at her worries and ignored her pleas. However, the dream so affected her that she secretly prepared herself the night before and had all her children sleep in their warm clothes in order to be ready at a moment’s notice. During the night, after the ship struck the iceberg, she and her children were rescued and escaped the sinking ship. Her husband, sadly, went down with more than 1,500 people.
In 1914, one hundred and twenty Newfoundland sealers were abandoned on an ice-floe in the North Atlantic during winter. The incompetence of the ship’s captain, and of other crew members, meant that the missing men were not noticed for two days and two nights. By the time they were rescued, more than half were dead. It was the worst disaster to strike the Newfoundland sealing community in many years. However, the disaster did not come without warning. One of the fiftyfive survivors later told of a dream he had two weeks before the disaster. According to Cassie Brown’s report on the disaster: ‘John Howlet had suffered a chilling nightmare weeks before. In his dream he was on a mountain of ice, lost and freezing. He was alone, terribly and frighteningly alone, but everywhere he wandered there were vague, indefinable “things” on the ice around him—things with no particular shape that he could make out. He found himself walking among those things, unable to find his way, wondering what they were and dreading them. In his dream he was counting, counting, counting…He was still counting the white mounds when he awoke, shivering and terribly depressed.’
Unfortunately, even this dream did not make him avoid joining the crew of the ship, Newfoundland, most of whom would be dead in a matter of days. It was only afterwards he realized that the bodies covered with snow were the white mounds from his dream.
In his autobiography, Jung recounts disturbing dreams and visions in 1913. In one vision he witnessed a monstrous flood covering Germany and realized a catastrophe was in progress. ‘I saw the mighty yellow waves, the floating rubble of civilization, and the drowned bodies of uncounted thousands. Then the whole sea turned to blood.’ Jung said he was perplexed and nauseated, assuming this vision was personal. It was not until World War I broke out a year later that he realized its collective nature. This irrational experience led Jung to conclude that each person’s unconscious possesses not only a personal, but also a collective, dimension.
Probably one of the best-established and most reputable cases of premonitions of disaster comes from the grim events that occurred on 21 October 1966 in Aberfan, Wales. On that day, 116 children and twenty-eight adults were killed when a large mountain of coal collapsed and buried a small section of the town of Aberfan, including an elementary school filled with children. The disaster touched nearly every family in the town and effectively extinguished an entire generation of children. After the disaster, the reports of premonitions began to flood in. The mother of one of the deceased students reported that her ten-year-old child (who died in the disaster) had a dream the night before which foretold the disaster. The child told her mother, ‘I dreamed I went to school and there was no school there.
Something black had come down all over it.’
The reports of precognitive dreams literally came from all over Wales and England. One lady had a nightmare that she suffocated in ‘deep blackness’. Another dreamed of a small child being buried by a large landslide. Another clearly saw a schoolhouse be buried by an avalanche of coal, and rescue workers digging frantically for survivors. Another woke up from a nightmare in which she was being buried alive. On the morning of the disaster, Mrs Sybil Brown woke from a dream in which she saw children being overcome by ‘a black, billowing mass’. Probably the clearest of the premonitions was reported by a man in north-west England who claimed that the night before the disaster he had a dream which consisted only of letters being spelled out in dazzling light: A-B-E-R-F-A-N. At the time, the dream had no meaning to him. Hours later, he would realize with horror what it meant.
An interesting phenomenon occurred in the aftermath of the terrorist plane attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon on 11 September 2001: numerous people came forward with reports of vivid dreams they’d had of these disasters in advance. The dreams were filled with images that later took place: planes crashing into buildings, planes crashing on the ground, tall buildings collapsing, flames shooting out of buildings, people running covered in gray ash, and feelings of panic, mass death and war. These nightmarish dreams were so realistic that many people awoke from them in terror and sweat.
The question most often raised about precognitive disaster dreams is, if so many people dreamed in advance of these disasters, why could nothing have been done to prevent them? The answer is that most people who have precognitive dreams only realize that they have had them after the events the dreams foretold have taken place, and they see how their dreams matched the events. Other dreamers, especially those who have periodic or frequent precognitive dreams, usually do not dream enough specific details to know exactly what is going to happen, where, and when. Some may only have a sense of dread that ‘something terrible’ is going to happen, usually soon. For example, a dream that a tall building is collapsing would not have sparked the immediate connection that terrorists were going to fly planes into the World Trade Center on the morning of 11 September 2001. A dream analyst would more likely interpret the image dream within the context of the dreamer’s life, suggesting that the dream reflected emotional turmoil within the dreamer’s life....

If radishes appear in your dreams, it may mean that you are caught up in an emotionally volatile situation. In dreams, salad can sometimes refer to the lack of essential nutrients offered in such foods—you may be being short-changed over something; it can also refer to lack of experience, as in ’green’. But if you are eating a salad in your dream, this may refer to the experiences that can trigger personal growth. Similar to cabbage is the delicious salad filler, lettuce. When you see lettuce growing in your dream, it may mean that you are in for a blissful or pleasurable moment in the future.
If you are eating lettuce in your dream, negative thinking may be hindering your progress in waking life.
If spinach appears in your dream it could be referring to the need to include extra iron in your diet. On the other hand, it could also refer to the need for you to have more strength in waking life.

1- Sadism often arises because of anger still held but suppressed from childhood hurts.
It is the wish to hurt or provoke a reaction often in someone we love. In waking life most of us are not capable of being sadistic, but in dreams we can do what we like, so sadism becomes acceptable.
2- It will obviously depend on whether we are being sadistic or if someone is being sadistic towards us as to the interpretation. We know that in dreams other people can represent parts of ourselves, so we need to consider whether we are causing ourselves harm deliberately or inadvertently.
We may feel that we wish to punish ourselves for some supposed misdemeanour and, as a displacement activity, we dream of sadistic behaviour.

If a person dreams of himself as holding or possessing water contained in a dish or bowl and he is conscious of himself as being in a state of tuhr (ie. Ceremonial purity) or on a journey in an unknown and strange place, then such a bowl of water symbolizes his life span.
If he dreams of drinking all the water it means his life span is completed; he should now prepare for the hereafter.
If he drinks the water partially it means he still has a number of years to live.
The same interpretation is given if, instead of water, the contents of the bowl or dish is thareed*.
