Dog

Easy expression of such aspects of ourself as aggression —maybe because dogs show their teeth easily—sexuality, friendship; our easy flowing natural feelings, devotion, per­haps to a lover or child.

For some people a dog was the only source of expressive love in their childhood, so may well de­pict this. Dor on lead: restrained or controlled urges.

The dog appears more often than other animals in dreams.

Example: I continue on my path, and suddenly the nettles disappear and the path is clear. Ahead the wall has curved round to face me, hut there is a gate in it, and I can see my dog waiting for me on the other side’ (Mrs MG). In the dream of this elderly woman the dog is leading the way through the experience of meeting death. Mythology has often shown the dog in this light, as an inner sense of knowing how to find transformation through death—or as the ravaging threat of death. Idioms: die like a dog; dirty dog; dog eared; dog eat dog, dog in the manger, gay dog; go to the dogs; let sleeping dogs lie; etc. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Nettle

1- A nettle in a dream suggests that there is a difficult situation which will have to be avoided. There may be irritation, particularly if we are not interacting with others or with the environment we are in.

A patch of nettles could also suggest difficulty in communication if we arc in the middle of it. Others round us may be using words or circumstances to hurt us. Nettles in a dream can also signify a worthless transaction: lI got stung’.

2- Nettles are wild plants with the quality of irritating the skin. This svmbolism can come across in / dreams as having allowed ourselves to be over-stimulated by a display of wild behaviour. This may be sexually, but could be in other ways as well, such as through dance. There is a point at which there is loss of control. Nettles can also suggest a kind of healing, both through the vitamins and minerals they contain when eaten, and also because they can be used to stimulate the system through external application. Folk medicine often suggested applying poultices of nettles to stimulate the blood supply.

3- In spiritual terms, nettle is supposed to be a specific against danger.

It is also used in purification rituals. Fresh nettles are reputed to aid a sick person’s recovery.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Vegetation

1- Vegetation in a dream can often represent the obstacles that we put in front of ourselves in order to grow.

For instance, a patch of brambles can suggest irritating snags to our movement forwards, whereas nettles might represent people actually trying to prevent progress.

The image of vegetation also links with the forest (See Forest).

2- While the obstacles we create may cause difficulty, there is also an underlying abundance and fertility that is available to us. In dreams, a pictorial image can help us to understand this.

To be clearing vegetation, for instance in a vegetable garden, can suggest clearing away that which is no longer of use to us.

3- Vegetation in a dream symbolises abundance and the capacity for growth on a spiritual level.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Herb

Herbs, whether for their medicinal power or their venom, appear frequently in legends and folktales. || To dream that you are lying on grass reveals the need to reestablish contact with yourself. You are wasting life by following some rules that are, by all indications, unnatural. The dream invites you to not lose hope for a major transformative change. However, if your oneiric images show dry, wilted grass, it is an unfavorable sign: it means you feel defeated and you’ve given up on harboring new ideas. Weeds also represent your worst habits and attitudes. These may come from your interior or from others. Most likely, the dream is showing you the way to regain harmony.

If in your dream you are pulling out weeds and they do not contain nettles or thistles, the signs are good. Soon you will be very lucky.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Herbs

Many herbs have symbolic meanings that go back centuries. For example, the ancient Romans offered wreaths of bay leaves as a symbol of triumph and peace. Earlier, bay was a sacred plant for Greeks and considered to be a protector from disease, witchcraft and lightning. In Britain, rosemary was called ‘Rose of Mary’ in memory of the Virgin Mary; in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, ‘There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance, pray you love, remember.’ This is by no means a complete list of the symbolic meanings of each herb in your dreams. Bear in mind that the symbolism of herbs is inextricably tied to culture and religion; your personal associations also need to be taken into account.

Nightmares

Children, especially, are prone to nightmares. Nightmares are common in children, typically beginning at around age 3 and occurring up to age 7-8.

People with anxiety disorder might also experience what experts term “night terrors”. These are actually panic attacks that occur in sleep.

It is especially difficult to remember these types of dreams since they conjure up terrifying images that we would just as soon forget.

In poetic myth, the Nightmare is actually a “small nettlesome mare, not more than thirteen hands high, of the breed familiar with the Elgin marbles: cream-colored, clean- limbed, with a long head, bluish eye, flowing mane and tail.” Her nests, called mares’ nests, “when one comes across them in dreams, lodged in rock-clefs or the branches of enormous hollow yews, are built of carefully chosen twigs lined with white horse-hair and the plumage of prophetic birds and littered with the jaw-bones and entrails of poets.”

Thus, in a pagan world of myth and blood sacrifice, the Nightmare was a cruel, fearful creature. Our modern word nightmare derives from the Middle English nihtmare (from niht, night, and mare, demon), an evil spirit believed to haunt and suffocate sleeping people. And so, in today’s world, when we speak of a nightmare we mean a frightening dream accompanied by a sensation of oppression and helplessness.

The blood-thirsty aspect of the mythic Nightmare, however, can give a good clue about nightmares in general, for in psychodynamic terms nightmares are graphic depictions of raw, primitive emotions such as aggression and rage that have not been incorporated into the conscious psyche. Thus we tend to encounter these “ugly” aspects of our unconscious lives as terrifying dream images in whose presence we feel completely helpless.

Nightmares are quite common in childhood because this is a time of our emotional development when we all have to come to terms with, well, raw, primitive emotions such as aggression and rage.

Traumatic nightmares can also occur as one of the many symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Repetitive, intrusive nightmares following a trauma often contain symbolic themes that mirror the original trauma and relate to threat to life, threat of abandonment or death, or loss of identity.

Therefore, traumatic nightmares need to be treated differently than other dreams. It’s not enough just to “know” intellectually the psychological reasons why you have these nightmares. An event is traumatic because it disrupts your previously secure—and illusory—sense of “self.” And so, to heal from a trauma, you must take the initiative to make conscious changes in your life to accommodate the traumatic shattering of your illusions about life and identity.

Some believe that nightmares have a physiological nature as well. Edgar Cayce believed that Nightmares, which bring with them an inability to move or cry out, usually indicate the wrong diet. To end the nightmarish dreams change your diet.

We found a technique online that can help people who suffer from recurrent nightmares. It is not meant to be a cure-all. It is just a suggested treatment to deal with frightening nightmares. The idea is to use this therapy every night until the nightmare has been resolved. It is called Imagery Rehearsal Therapy.

Here are the steps of Imagery Rehearsal Therapy:

  • Write out the text of the nightmare. Tell the story, no matter how frightening, in as much detail as you can remember.
  • Create a new ending for the nightmare story and write it out. Be careful, however, to make the new ending peaceful. Remember that the nightmare is grounded in emotions such as raw anger that have been provoked by a trauma. The point of a new ending is to “tame” the emotions, not merely vent them in violence and revenge.
  • Rehearse the new version of the story in your imagination each night just before going to sleep. Do this as close as possible to your falling asleep without any other activity between the rehearsal and sleep.
  • Perform a relaxation exercise. Do this immediately after the rehearsal, as a way to fall asleep peacefully. You may use any technique with which you are familiar. This could be meditation, yoga, or breathing exercises.The “cousin” of nightmares is disturbing dreams with unpleasant images.
