Birds

Freudians regard this as an erotic dream. Oneiro- critics give it a varied meaning according to the nature of the birds. Many small birds signify lawsuits; to catch birds with lime denotes unfair triumph over enemies; singing birds foretell joy and delight; to the poor a dream of birds implies many friends; to the rich it forecasts flight of fortune.

The dream of Uta, mother of Kremhild, who married Attila, the Hun, and sent for her kinsmen to avenge Siegfried’s death, is symbolic. “Stay here, good heroes,” she warns her children; “last night I dreamed an evil dream, that all the birds in the land were dead.” The treachery of the Huns justified the evil omen. In Christian symbolism a bird represents the soul; the bird of Paradise especially bears this significance.... The Fabric of Dream

Hero / Heroine

A well-known desire for acceptance and validation, even if you are the hero or heroine yourself.

If you see a hero, it would indicate that you are hoping for help, but pettiness is involved. Adventuresome, craving for admiration, exaggerated and immature masculinity and femininity; but also vitality and the ability to succeed, similar to Hammer.

It may also mean the opposite—that you feel like a failure—or you must be in control of everything. Dreams about heroes belong usually to so-called “big dreams,” which take place in a person just prior to puberty, during midlife crisis, or before dying.

According to Jung, the hero is one of the important archetypes.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Angel

(see Authority Figures, Icons)

A personal guide or guardian who either safeguards you in times of need or conveys important messages, most likely of a spiritual nature.

Divine blessings and protection, especially if one covers you with its wings. In Christianity, angels are servants and messengers for God, often attending and defending believers in their ministerial tasks.

What is the angel’s attitude toward you? If disapproving, this is a sign that you feel negligent toward important teachings from your youth or faith. This caused guilt and inner conflict over notions of “right” and “wrong.”

Recognition of bravery or honor. In Germany, winged Valkyries took great heroes to Valhalla, their version of heaven. In Persian tradition, similar beings called “houris” took faithful, courageous warriors to an erotic paradise for eternity.

Cosmic patterns and energy. In the 6th century, a monk named Cosmas Indicopleustes said that angels pushed and pulled heavenly bodies on their course. Other religious people claimed that the stars themselves were angels in disguise.

Superhero / Heroine

A male superhero represents a super intellect; thus to dream of seeing Superman, Batman, Spiderman, or whoever indicates that your mind is particularly sharp right now, and if there is a project you’re working on that requires a quick, agile, and insightful intellect, this is the time to concentrate primarily on it. Female superheroes such as Wonder Woman or Supergirl indicate a heightened supportive mind - and thus the dreamer’s intuition is operating at a very high level. Therefore at this time the dreamer should definitely believe in his or her hunches and go with them - no matter what the intellect tells you.

If the dreamer encounters both male and female superheroes, then both faculties of his mind are especially sharp right now. Use your intellect, but when in doubt, follow your heart.

If the superhero or heroine is flying, or performing a rescue, then your mental and/or intuitive faculties will save you from an uncomfortable situation.... Dream Explanations of Astro Center

Celebrities

Dreams that you are a celebrity means your desires and wishes may be beyond your reach at the present moment.

To dream that a friend or lover becomes a celebrity suggests your fear of losing the friendship and loyalty of this person.

To see a celebrity in your dream, or even to be dating or making out with a famous celebrity in your dream, represents your understanding about him or her and the feelings he/she generates in you. Something in your waking life has triggered these similar beliefs and feelings.

If you dream about being friends with a celebrity, your dream is telling you that you should have higher self-esteem. You are worth believing in. You need to work on believing that you are a special person.

It is not uncommon that a real-life obsession with a certain celebrity may carry over onto your dream world. Celebrities are often seen as heroes and role models for certain qualities or the fame and acceptance we want to achieve ourselves.

To dream about a celebrity dying signifies that your feelings about that person are changing significantly. Perhaps you no longer admire what they once represented to you. Alternatively, you may want to repress that aspect of yourself that is represented by that celebrity.... My Dream Interpretation

Boy

Seeing a boy in a dream means that you are happy and alive, with many possibilities and the desire to create.

It is a way of preparing the ground for future changes in your personality. However, it may also indicate a desire to return to the basics and discover your true personality. Moreover, dreaming that you return to childhood reflects a need for love and protection. It can reveal, therefore, certain immaturity to life. In this sense, according to Carl Jung, dreaming of children is a metaphor for the things of childhood that we have forgotten. Maybe the dream image is warning you that you should learn to play again or have a more innocent attitude. (See GAME, YOUTH, and BIRTH)

In history and mythology, divine children often appear, who eventually become heroes or wise men. This is the case of Hercules, who strangles two serpents when he is very small; or Jesus, who then becomes Christ who saves humanity. These children symbolize the true Self of man: vulnerable, but with a great capacity for transformation. In the dream, perhaps this relates to our spiritual potential.

Bracelet See RING

Braid Equal to knots, braids symbolize intimate relations and mutual dependency. For this reason, dreaming that you have long braids could announce that you will soon be implicated in a confusing situation.

It is probable that it will be due to your behavior, which foments discord between the people in your environment.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Hero

To dream of a hero or heroine is an alert sign about the need to ask others for help in solving certain problems. However, if the dreamer is the hero, it makes clear the image of strength he has before others. Many times, in this dream, the hero represents your conscious part. This goes on an unconscious journey to challenge its powers. Equally, numberless myths and stories tell about how heroes venture to strange lands to find a treasure or rescue a beautiful damsel. These are symbols of the reward you will receive by investigating your most hidden side. For a woman, dreaming of the figure of a man made a hero could be evidence of her masculine side. For a man, finding the princess he was looking for could manifest that, finally, he has found the feminine aspect of his nature.

Some oneiric beliefs consider this dream to portend that someone who spurns the dreamer in real life will soon fall in love with them.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Fairy Tales

Fairy tales are full of rich psychological symbolism that expresses our innermost fears and dreams. Beginning with the fathers of the field, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, numerous psychoanalysts have turned to fairy tales in an effort to understand the human mind. Just as many fairy tales hinge upon a revelation of the truth about those who have been somehow disguised, so too fairy tales cut to the essence of adult identity. Freud suspected that dreams and fairy tales stemmed from the same place, and the relaxation of inhibition that occurs in the dream state is also true of many storytellers. So fairy tales might prove, as with dreams, to be windows opening into the unconscious. (Indeed, many fairy tales include dream-states as important plot points.) For Freud, fairy tales are rife with wish-fulfillment fantasies and complicated sexual undercurrents.

As far as Jung was concerned, the ‘collective unconscious’ that lies at the core of his work, and which he believed is shared by all human beings, is revealed through archetypes, forms and symbols found in ample quantity in fairy tales. Jungian therapists study fairy tales to help analyze the dreams of their patients. Jung’s disciples have gone on to interpret fairy tales as lives in miniature, suggesting, for example, that each character within a tale may represent an aspect of human personality.

More recently, perhaps the best-known—and certainly the most widely- quoted—psychologist to incorporate fairy tales into their practice is Bruno Bettelheim, who published Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales in 1976. Bettelheim argued that fairy tales are an important tool for children learning to navigate reality and survive in a world ruled by adults. The family conflicts and moral education of the protagonists (conveniently often children themselves) could provide models of coping. Others have disputed aspects of this interpretation. The German cultural critic and philosopher Walter Benjamin notes that the morality of fairy tales is rather complicated, with the heroes and heroines often known to lie, cheat, steal and torture villains. But there remains something empowering and psychologically insightful in these stories that, as fairy tale scholar Maria Tatar writes, demonstrate the ‘triumph of small and weak over tall and powerful’.

To sum up: one of the most useful functions of the fairy tale is to use fantasy to help address the problems of growing up. During the course of the fairy tale, the hero or heroine is taken on a journey to greater self-awareness and psychological wholeness. In a child’s life there may be many conflicts and the fairy tale helps the child express the hostility these situations may cause. Many psychologists recommend fairy tales as beneficial to children, believing they help children assimilate problems such as violence, sexuality, growing up and learning to deal with family conflict. In many ways, fantasy dreams share the same functions as fairy tales; not only do they provide a healthy outlet for socially unacceptable behavior, they can also empower the dreamer and teach hidden lessons....

Myth And Legend

One amazing aspect of dreaming is that it can introduce you to ancient mythological figures of whom you thought you knew nothing. Jung put this well when he said that The great ones of the past have not died, as we think; they have merely changed their names.’ Our dreams may also relate to modern legends, such as those from the Star Wars or Superman films or from the Harry Potter books. Our distant ancestors lived with the dangers and uncertainties of an existence that drove them to seek comfort in beliefs that reached far beyond the bounds of reason. They lived in a world where the magical and mythological was accepted without question. Despite the efforts of established religion and science to impose their own belief systems, these ancient beliefs in gods, spirits and superheroes continue to haunt, fascinate and enchant us with the mysterious images that seep into our sleeping world.

The myths of the ancient Greeks and Romans survive because the human characteristics they represent are universal: love, lust, anger, fear, greed and so on. Such human characteristics are the basic stuff of the stories the ancients dreamed up, and, according to Jungians, these myths lie deep in our unconscious. The personalities of myth may only be recognized by those who study them but, by recognizing their characteristics and studying them, you can learn a lot about yourself. Any character that appears prominently in your dream will be worth measuring against the mythological figure it closely resembles.

The following are some of the most well-known myths and legends, but the list is by no means comprehensive.... The Element Encyclopedia

Hero / Heroine

The hero or heroine is the person who has elected to undertake their own journey of exploration. They are able to consider options and decide the next move. They will overcome challenges, solve problems and, more often than not, rescue someone who is in distress. The focal point of myth, legend and fairy tale is, in most cases, the psychological growth of the hero and heroine; modern fantasies express many of the same themes as their more ancient precursors.

Whether heroes and heroines appear in modern or ancient garb, they represent the same impulses within the dreamer, such as an expression of bravery, ambition or adventure.

For example, Star Wars grips its audience not just because of its ground- breaking special effects, but because it also speaks to our unconscious mind. The themes in the film exhibit many of the same structures possessed by myths and fairy tales. Extraordinary things happen to ordinary people and tragedy is the catalyst which sets the story in motion. For example, in Star Wars, the turning point for the young Luke Skywalker is the devastation of his family home. This may reflect the circumstances of your waking life. For many people, psychological growth begins with a tragedy or change in circumstances. Allies join the hero, Luke, just as they do in classic myth, and in Jungian psychology this represents psychological energy and the wisdom of the unconscious. The fantasy adventure goes on to express a classic hero myth, giving Luke greater self-realization and psychological wholeness.

So if a hero figure appears in your dreams whether in the guise of Luke Skywalker, Superman, Spiderman, Batman, James Bond, Robin Hood or Lara Croft, they often symbolize your search or desire for psychological wholeness. These figures—if you can properly understand their appearance and intention—are all assisting in the process of individuation, helping you to find yourself.... The Element Encyclopedia
