Dream Interpretation Entanglement | Dream Meanings


If the entanglement of your dream is physical—you are tangled up in bushes or in underbrush—the dream tells you about a problem that could get worse and give you a headache. The way the dreamer approaches the situation and tries to break free from the entanglement summarizes her attitude toward the events that occur in life.

When the nature of the entanglement is personal and you are involved in a situation of misunderstanding with people around you, the dream augurs good relationships and good environment for communication and understanding.

(Employment; Knowledge; Prison) If a man ofknowledge sees himself swimming in the ocean in a dream, it means that he will attain his goals. Ifhe enters the water of the ocean then comes back to the shore in a dream, it means that he will commence his path of seeking knowledge then abandons it. Swimming in a dream also means going to jail. Swimming on sand in a dream means that one may be incarcerated; that his living conditions in his jail will be constricted, and that he will suffer in his prison from hardships equal to the difficulties he encounters during his swim in the dream.

If one sees himself swimming inside his own house in a dream, it means that he will work for a ruthless, wicked and an unjust employer who will entrap him in his service through a business deal. Consequently, God Almighty will help him out of his entanglements.

If one is afraid of swimming in the dream, it means that he is scared of someone in authority.

If he runs away from swimming in a dream, it means that he will escape from him.

If one sees himself entering waters where he can swim successfully in a dream, it means that he will engage in a major project,lead an important job, or acquire authority and power. Ifone swims on his back in a dream, it means that he will repent for a sin.

If he swims in the sea and finds its water stagnant in the dream, it means that he will serve someone in authority, though his job will bringhim nothing but trouble and the wrath of his employer. Ifhe still manages to cross the sea in his dream, it means that he will escape from dangers his employment could inflict upon him.

If he swims with fear in a dream, it means trouble, imprisonment, or a sickness he will endure depending on the type of needed efforts or distance he has to cross. Should he think in the dream that he will not be able to make it, then it means his death.

If he shows courage during his swim in the dream, it means that he will be able to escape from such a dangerous job. Troubled waters in a dream mean adversities. Swimming successfully across troubled waters in a dream means overcoming one’s adversities. Any sea or agitated waters in a dream represent the authorities or the state, whether it be a swamp, a lake, a pond, 424 a sea, or an ocean.

If one sees himself drowning in a river, or a lake, then ifhe is carried by others and laid on dry land motionless like a fish in a dream, this also means trials and adversities. Ifone is saved from drowningbefore he wakesup from his sleep in the dream, it means that he will triumph over his trials. Otherwise, ifhe dies from it in the dream, it means that he may die from such adversities. Ifduring his swim one meets a ship that pulls him out ofthe waters, or to which he holds or grabs, it also means escape from adversities.

If one drowns in the dream, it means that he may die as a martyr, though having previously indulged in many sins.

To walk on water, whether it is the sea or a river in a dream means good spiritual standing, religious assiduousness and a strong faith and determination. Walking on water in a dream also could be interpreted as ascertaining something about which one may have doubt, or placing one’s trust in God Almighty before embarking on a dangerous trip.

Spider

Some believe that the spider is symbolic of an unkind and sneaky individual. Are you the spider building a web, or are you being dragged into one? A spider’s web might represent entanglement and the general complexities of life. Depending on the details of the dream, it could also symbolize a smothering individual. Ironically, very old dream interpretations say that the spider is an omen of good luck! Alternatively, Carl Jung felt that the spider’s web was a symbol of wholeness due to its formation (circular shape), construction and complexity. He called circular symbols “mandalas” and said that they hold valuable meaning for the dreamer.

The spider and his web may be calling for an integration of the dream’s personality leading to greater self-awareness and resulting in feelings of completeness. Therefore, the spider and his web may be considered profound and spiritual dream symbols that call for greater self-understanding and encourage us to derive meaning and satisfaction from the intricate framework and interplay of life....

Damsel In Distress

(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

Fabulous And Fabled Settings

On occasion your dream may select a fabulous and fabled place to add weight to its message. For example, if you dream of visiting the legendary place of Atlantis or the sacred realm of Avalon, this suggests a yearning for spiritual fulfillment in waking life. To dream of the pyramids is neither uncommon nor surprising, given that their symbolism goes to the core of humanity’s search for understanding of its place within the universe. A dream featuring the Great Pyramid of Khufu suggests the ability to overcome obstacles, because its geometry symbolizes an ancient mystery. Mazes may also appear in dreams; their meaning is dependent on whether or not you found your way or got lost.

The classic symbolism of Theseus (you the dreamer) in the labyrinth (the entanglements of your real life) guided by the spiritual thread (your intuition) to slay the Minotaur (your debased animalistic side) may filter into your dream.

If you find your way out of the maze, this suggests the end of a mystery or the resolution of a dilemma in waking life. See also BUILDINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia
