Incomprehensible or unintelligible letters may suggest frustration at being unable to solve some problem. A letter that turns out to be a blank page is a clear sign that you should stop waiting for other people to take the initiative and take the initiative yourself. An anonymous letter can be a message from your unconscious that you need to slow down and reflect on your actions in waking life. While handwriting in a dream letter can reveal personal feelings or communications, a typewritten or word-processed communication implies a more impersonal communication.
Dreams of sending a telegram may occur during times of stagnation or routine in your professional life and may serve as an urgent stimulus to change.

For instance, something in the wrong position means we are going about things in the wrong way.
2- Our spirit, intellect, ideals and consciences are being brought to our attention when we dream of anything higher or above us. This applies also when dreaming of the upper part of anything (of a building or body, for example). Our altruism may be being brought into question. Anything underneath, below, or downstairs signifies the anarchic or immoral side of our personalities.
The sexual impulses can also be characterised in this way. Something appearing upside down emphasises the potential for chaos and difficulty.
The ‘ups and downs’ of situations in life can be experienced in dreams as the actual movement of one’s position, ‘fhe personality has a need to balance the heights and depths of its experience, and if this docs not happen a warning will usually appear in dream form. Back/Front Rejection and acceptance can be shown in a dream as seeing the back and front of something. Backward/ Forward Having the attention drawn to a backward and/or forward movement usually indicaes the potential to adopt a regressive bae kward-looki ng tendency. There is a need to retire into the past, rather than tackling lears and moving ahead. Centre falso see Shapes) To be conscious of the centre of any aspect of a dream is to be aware of a goal or objective, or perhaps even of the dreamer’s real Self. There is a need to be the centre of attention whatever the circumstances. Far/Near In dreams, space and time can become confused.
Dreaming of something which is far awav, may indicate that it is far away in time. This may be future or past, depending on the dream.
A long way in front would be future, a long way behind would be past. Near or close would mean recently, or in the immediate.
Horizontal This usually symbolises the material world. Left The left side suggests the less dominant, more passive side. Often it is taken to represent all that is dark and sinister and those parts of our personality which we try to suppress.
It is more to do with instinctive behaviour, what feels good inside and with personal behaviour without attention to moral codes.
It is supportive in expression, and receptive by nature, so anything appearing in dreams on the left side can be accepted as a symbol of support. Any pain experienced on the left side is interpreted in terms of sensitivity.
The left expresses the more feminine attributes and often the past. Feelings of being left behind suggest a sense of inadequacy, of disintegration and of having to leave the past behind. Indecision over left or right suggests an inability to decide whether to rely on drive or instinct.
Low In dreams, feeling ‘low’ can suggest a sense of inferiority or humility. Often we will give way to submissive behaviour, and put ourselves in a lower position than others. Occasionally to be below something or someone can indicate a need to explore the underside or negativity of a relationship or situation. Opposite Anything in a dream which is opposite the dreamer may suggest some difficulty in reconciling two paradoxes (Good/bad. male/female, up/down, etc.). This may or may not suggest conflict. One thing deliberately put opposite another There is a deliberate attempt to introduce discord. Changing the position from opposite Differences maybe adjusted.
Right/Left The conflict between right and left is usually between logic and intuition. Right The right side represents the more dominant logical side.
It is the consciously expressed, confident side which perceives the exterior world in perhaps a more objective sense.
It is to do with ‘lightness’ that is, correctness and moral and social behaviour. Anything observed on the right side in dreams is usually significant as the dreamer progresses. Any pain experienced on the right side can also be interpreted in terms of drive. It also expresses the more masculine attributes. Movement to the right indicates that something is coming into conscious awareness. Straight Straight suggests a direct approach, the shortest way between two objects or places. Top To be at the top is to have succeeded in our endeavours.
To be on top is to have assumed control. Trying to reach the top suggests more effort is needed. Under/underneath Being underneath something suggests either taking shelter or submitting to someone else’s handling of us. It may also represent the part of us that we hide, or the part that is less capable.
Up, upper We have the capability of achieving a degree of supremacy. We are capable of getting the ‘upper hand’ in particular situations. We can move away from the mundane, ordinary- everyday world.
Vertical The vertical in dreams tends to represent the spiritual realm.

If you cannot draw a parallel between your dream and your waking life, ask yourself which positive actions you need to take in your life. Has your general outlook on life become cynical and jaded; is it time to freshen your attitudes up in some way?... The Element Encyclopedia
Perhaps you have woken up from a dream with feelings of euphoria or unexplained happiness, or found yourself laughing without knowing why. Every now and again your dreaming mind may give you an emotional and psychological boost by creating images in which you feel deeply secure, happy and loved. It may also conjure up images of freedom, adventure, success and excitement to spur you on. Dreams that leave you with such lingering feelings of joy and exhilaration are less common than those that leave you with feelings of dread and uncertainty. This may be because there are always constant challenges and responsibilities to face in the real world and your dreams tend to reflect your anxieties about meeting these challenges. Even though they are relatively rare, feelings of immense happiness in dreams are just as important to understand as feelings of sadness according to Jung and most other dream analysts. Joyful, uplifting dreams allow you to focus on the real-life experiences and situations that evoked them, as well as the way you feel about yourself and your life.

POWs from World War II and concentration camp survivors have been known to suffer post-traumatic stress nightmares for up to fifty years after the event. Unlike ‘normal’ nightmares, these dreamers can experience significant physical symptoms during REM sleep and non-REM sleep, such as an increase in respiration and heart rate, muscle twitches and more than one arousal. Adults might experience other traumatic events in their lives, such as the loss of a loved one or bankruptcy, and these events can also continue to play out in dreams over the years in the form of nightmares. The more standard anxiety nightmare dreamers, however, have nightmares that relate to work, school or relationship stresses.

The apparently intuitive information in some dreams, when investigated, can be traced to an unconscious insight into the language of the living body. We all have this ability to understand body language, but it seems to be something which is inherited from past times before verbal language. It therefore remains a largely unconscious ability. In our dreams, however, it is a major factor in how the dream is structured.
If you cannot find a satisfying description below, imagine yourself making the movement or posture in the dream to see if you can define what the feeling quality is, or what you are saying non-verbally. It can often be of value to make the movement or take up the posture physically instead of in the imagination. By comparing the movement/posture with another one, it can help to clarify its quality.
Example: Marilyn was expenencing emotional pain connected with her impending divorce. Marilyn had dreamt of seeing a dinosaur standing in her path, devounng all who approached it. We explored it by having Marilyn find a body posture and movements which for her expressed the feeling of the dinosaur. In doing so Marilyn did not sense anger or aggression, but she did feel like a predator which always had to take to gain her own needs. This feeling immediately reminded her of her family life as a child. She remembered when she was sent shopping as a very young child of three or four; as well as buying what she had been asked, she purchased some sweets for herself. When she arrived home she was treated as if she had done a terrible thing, and that was where she began to feel like a predator. It seemed to her as if her own needs were always gained at the expense of someone else.
‘With this awareness, she could now see that the dinosaur standing iti her path clearly related to her present situation. Bargaining to gain a realistic share of the house and property jointly owned by her husband and herself, felt to her as if she were gaining her needs at his expense, like a predator. That made her feel so awful, she was almost ready to allow her husband to take all, leaving her without house or money to start again. Her awareness of where the feelings arose from, and the unrealistic pan they played in her life, allowed her to relate to the situation with less pain and more wisdom’ (from Mind and Movement, Tony Crisp). ...

If your body or face is distorted in your dream, it suggests you suffer from low self-esteem or have a body image issues, but if other people are distorted, is there someone in waking life that you distrust? Sex reversal dreams may suggest wish-fulfillment or simple curiosity, as well as the need to explore your anima or animus. A painting or a sculpture coming to life in a dream may be inviting you to become less inhibited. Is it time to become more animated and show the creative side of your personality? One object transforming into another can mean a wish to make changes in waking life; the two objects involved may suggest what direction that change will take. For example, a pen turning into a book may point to a desire to stop gathering information and to get to grips with the task in hand.
Talking animals may signal a need to draw on the instinctive side of your nature for inspiration and encouragement, whereas animals transforming into humans suggests the opposite: a desire to transcend instincts of which you may feel ashamed. If, however, a person transforms into an animal, this may suggest a desire to explore the deeper levels of your unconscious.
If you, or someone else, in your dream transform from a person into a plant or tree, this may suggest a need to withdraw from the world for a while. On the other hand, it could warn against being rooted to the spot, or being unwilling to make changes. The transformation of a plant into a person suggests some form of awakening, as when inertia finally gives way to action.... The Element Encyclopedia
If you are standing in a lofty position relative to other people or the landscape in your dream, this suggests the need for a wider perspective; it can also suggest feelings of superiority, or of having risen above your station.
If you are adjacent, beside or adjoining someone or something in your dream, this suggests a close connection with some aspect of yourself or your life; it can also suggest something you can no longer avoid. Things that fall behind you in a dream represent what you have left behind or of which you are unaware. Things that are below you represent that which you can look on from detached viewpoint. Alternatively, submissive behavior may be suggested.
If someone or something is positioned very close to you in your dream, this indicates a situation that is imminent, near at hand or being realized now.
Things that appear in the distance refer to feelings with which you no longer strongly identify, but they may also indicate the future or the past. Things in front of you refer to what is being dealt with now in your waking life. Things that are opposite you represent resistance to the direction you want to take or the need to reconcile opposites in some way. Things by your side suggest supportive feelings or taking sides in some way. Something in the wrong position in a dream may indicate that you are going about things in the wrong way. The upper part of anything (of a building or a body, for instance) typically refers to your intellect and ideals, whereas the lower part of anything refers to the unconscious. Something upside down signals the need for change. Rejection or acceptance can be seen in a dream as viewing the back or front of something and backward or forward motion indicates delays or progress and whether or not you have a forward—or backward-looking approach to life. To be aware of the center of something in your dream is to be aware of your real self. Horizontal things symbolize the material world, vertical things symbolize the spiritual or intuitive realm, whilst straight things suggests a direct approach.
To be on top, trying to reach the top or being on an upper level might suggest you are assuming control and are capable of achieving the upper hand in waking life. Going down or being underneath something may represent the part of you that wants to hide or feels less confident. Going north in your dream suggests a journey into the unknown; going south is representative of passion and following your heart; going east suggests rebirth and becoming self-aware, whilst going west suggests the more logical side of your nature. Anything observed in dreams on the right-hand side usually represents your progress in waking life, as the right-hand side represents logic and correct behavior. Movement to the right can indicate that something is coming into consciousness; it can also express more masculine attributes such as dominance. The left-hand side is less to do with dominance or reason, and more to do with instinctive behavior and dreams, as the left-hand side expresses feminine attributes. Indecision over whether to go left or right in a dream suggests an inability to decide if you want to follow your obligations or your instincts in real life. See also BODY.... The Element Encyclopedia
