Example: ‘I could see an older woman watching me from the road. I felt very scared at her being there. I walked to the front door, I started to walk past the front door, felt great fear and hung back, half behind the front door, for protection from her’ (Pamela H). Generally it means pan of; divided; incomplete; in between, conflict. Half open: opposing feelings about whether to be open’ or not—can I, can’t I, will I, won’t I? Halfway up/down: indecision; faltering motivation; sometimes between the opposites, or outside one’s everyday experience. Half full : may refer to half one’s life used up. Cut in half: conflict between intellect and body sexuality. Half buried: something you are only partly aware of. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
1- Dreams can often have a very peculiar quality in that our image may only be half there or we perhaps only experience half an action. This usually indicates an incompleteness in us, being a sort of in-between state which means that we have to make decisions. Often it is about either going forward into the future or back into the past: completion or non- completion.
For instance, we may have half-completed a task and be aware of this, but do not know how to finish it. Often the dream images that appear can show us how to do this. Conversely, if in a dream we have only partially completed a task and are left feeling dissatisfied with what has happened, we perhaps need to consider in waking life what needs to be done to enable us to complete the action in the dream. What would we have done had we been able to complete it?
2- To have only half of what we feel we should have - for instance in quantity perhaps only to have half of the food or drink we had expected, indicates that we are possibly selling ourselves short. We are not allowing ourselves to have what we need.
To dream of being half way up a hill or a mountain or halfway down a river would indicate that there is some indecision. We are not as motivated as we should, or could, be to continue with the task we have in hand. We have made an initial effort but greater effort is needed in order to be where we want to be. This type of dream is very often to do with either motivating ourselves or others.
To continually dream of slipping back, until we are only halfway through our task, to be repeating it over and over again, would indicate that we do not have the ability to complete it. There is perhaps an extra skill that we need to enable us to achieve success.
3- A degree of spiritual indecision is also indicated here.

Vision: Looking at a mast: you have accomplished an enormous task and should be proud of yourself. You can start on a new project now.
If the mast is without sails: you still have hard work ahead before reaching the goal you have set for yourself.

The breasts connect to the feminine principle of nurturing and the maternal instincts. They are also connected to sexuality and eroticism for many.
A mastectomy is a radical response to the presence of cancer in the form of complete surgical removal of one or both breasts. As a symbol, such an act is reflecting a deep loss of connection to these powerful feminine forces. There may be a literal connotation to the dream if you or someone you know is going through a waking-life experience of facing breast cancer.
To dream that you have a master, is a sign of incompetency on your part to command others, and you will do better work under the leadership of some strong-willed person.

There are three double digit numbers that require special emphasis. These are the numbers eleven, twenty-two and thirty-three. They are called master numbers because they are thought to possess huge potential. Eleven is the most intuitive of all the numbers and it suggests powerful illumination. Twenty-two suggests the realization of your goals. Thirty-three is a powerful symbol of personal wisdom and understanding.
If negative or minus numbers appear in your dream, they are not necessarily negative symbols. In some instances they may contain a message to look back to a past time or situation and evaluate it more objectively. Perhaps you need to take a few steps back from a situation or to revisit things, as glitches may still need to be sorted out. On the other hand, negative numbers may reveal a sense of negativity and could be a wake-up call for you to start thinking more positively.... The Element Encyclopedia

This may be represented in a dream by such things as using a pump, beating a drum, or any rhythmic movement.
If there is a tendency to repress the sexual need, it may happen that one masturbates during sleep, in an attempt to release sexual pressure. Because the person has consciously decided not to allow sexuality, this might give rise to a feeling of being possessed by another will. In fact our unconscious will to express our needs has overridden the conscious decision during sleep. Out of such a split in the person, ideas about devils and possession probably arose. Although Christianity at a fundamental level appears to teach the love and acceptance of all sides of human nature—therefore integration through love thy neighbour as thyself, so love thyself—in practice it becomes tight morality which creates devils through rejection and splits in human nature. In many Christians, there are enormous conflicts between sexuality, love, work and spirituality. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

You are looking to stimulate some sort of self-expression, from power to creativity or even sexuality. Any image that involves sexuality is going to be complex and is best interpreted by starting with the symbolic meaning first, by breaking down the image into its basic parts. Masturbation has a specific purpose, which is to induce orgasm. There are two functions that might be assigned to orgasm. One is the pleasurable relief from stress that it provides and the other serves to remind the person of his or her sexuality. Also of importance is the current state of your sex life and your relationship to your sexuality in general.
If there is another person involved, consider that individual as a character aspect of your own personality.
If you are watching someone masturbate (or you are masturbating someone), then the qualities you assign to this individual may be the part of you that has access to elements of your sexuality at the time of this dream.
The same is true if the person is masturbating you; however, this distinction connects more to an aspect of your personality that may be trying to stimulate a sexual response in you.
The gender of this other person should be considered as well, no matter what your sexual preference.
A man connects to the masculine principle of taking action, whereas a woman embodies the feminine principle of being receptive.
The human sex drive contains the same power as the creative instinct. Masturbation in a dream may not necessarily be expressing the need to be sexual as much as the need to be creatively expressive. Look to where your life might be calling you to wake up your sense of passion.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
