Meaning of Russia Dreams | Dream Interpretation

Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.


Russia occupies most of eastern Europe and northern Asia, stretching from the Baltic Sea in the west to the Pacific Ocean in the east, and from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Black Sea and the Caucasus in the south.

If it features in your dreams, it could be referring to emotional coldness in waking life, but it could also symbolize perseverance, a strong character and a struggle to express your individuality that is eventually successful.

The Shadow

Depicted as: a shadowy figure, often the same sex as the dreamer, a zombie or walking dead; a dark shape; an unseen ‘Thing’; someone or something we feel uneasy about or in some measure repelled by; what is behind one in a dream, anything dark or threatening.

The Shadow is any pan of ourself which we reject, and so do not allow expression in our life. We may so dislike aspects of our nature we fail to see them altogether and instead see them in other people and criticise them. Nations as well as individuals do this.

The Nazis projected all problems on to the Jews; the Americans have not wished to see their own social sickness, and have looked instead at the Russians, no doubt the Irish blame the English, and the English use the class system, with its projections between employee and employer.

It is easier than looking at one’s own Shadow.

If you can think of the characteristics you loathe in others, that is a fair picture of what you repress in yourself.

The great ‘ladies’ man’ may hide a Shadow which feels inadequate sexu­ally; the loving Christian mother might meet a Shadow full of resentment and anger at how she has been taken for granted. Meeting the Shadow through our dreams is a meeting with our own reality, which in turn enables us to look at the world realistically.

The Shadow can be met. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Island

(see Desertion)

Isolation and solitude, sometimes by choice. In these moments remember that even Moses had to spend time alone to find his destiny (see Desert).

Being shipwrecked by, or stranded in, life’s storms, without emotional support (see Boat, Water).

An archetypal Paradise or Eden where one strives for wholeness. In the myths of the Russians, Norse, Danes, and Hindus, islands are places filled with magical creatures and idyllic peace (see Garden).

Unshakable resolve and strength (e.g., being the “island in the stoi7n”).... The Language of Dreams

Oranges

(see Eating, Fruit, Juice, Trees)

Because of its high vitamin content, this symbolizes good health or things that are good for you.

An emblem of the triune nature of humankind (body-mind-soul), because the tree bears flowers, leaves, and fruit simultaneously.

Buying oranges portends prosperity. In the Middle Ages, oranges were a highly valued and expensive commodity.

In the East, dreaming of oranges represents extending good wishes for joy and abundance to those you care about.

Controlling an unruly nature. Orange slices were originally put in drinks, believing they would prevent drunkenness. In this case, stopping the “inebriation” becomes a metaphor for self-regulation.

Russia: Faithfulness. Orange flowers were sometimes part of a brides bouquet for this reason.... The Language of Dreams

Quail

(see Birds, Feathers, Flying, Wings)

In the Middle Ages, quails were characterized as having amorous personalities, and were given the symbolism of erotic energy.

Courage and victory in battle. In Rome, these were fighting birds.

In a cage, the quail came to represent the embodied soul that seeks freedom.

Transmuting any poisons that threaten your physical, mental, or spiritual health. Aristotle believed that quails could safely eat toxins like hemlock that normally killed humans.

Unexpected blessing.

The ancient Hebrews received quails as a miraculous feast (Ex. 16:11-12).

Among Hindus, the quail symbolizes spring and the returning sun. Similarly in Russia, this was an emblem of the dawn, a time of hope and new beginnings (see Time).... The Language of Dreams

Web (net)

(See Knots, Rope, Spider, Spinning)

In the immortal words of Shakespeare, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave.” This dream may represent the web of deception or some other trap of which you need to be aware.

The web of life that interconnects all things, from the smallest grain at sand to the stars. In this case, your subconscious is trying to remind you of your importance in this scheme, and how your life touches everything directly or indirectly.

Attachments and associations. Nets participated in ancient Russian “wedding ceremonies to indicate the unity of the couple and ensure fertility (“a teeming catch”).

Being caught in a net can be an alternative type of cage dream, with slightly looser constraints indicated (rope is easier to get out of than steel). Alternatively, in China this is a symbol of protection. Pregnant women were sometimes surrounded by fishing nets to safeguard die baby from any evil influences.... The Language of Dreams

Evil

History suffers from no shortage of evil figures. Amongst the most cruel and appalling must be numbered such figures as Genghis Khan, the leader of the pitiless Mongol hordes who swept across Europe from the East. Another is Tomas de Torquemada, whose name is synonymous with the Christian Inquisition’s horror, religious bigotry and cruel fanaticism. Of similar repute is Ivan the Terrible, the grand prince of Moscow and the first to be proclaimed Tsar of Russia. Through cruelty and torture, his reign saw the completion of the construction of a centrally administered Russian state and the creation of an empire that included non-Slav states.

Perhaps unequalled in the annals of human depravity is the name of Adolf Hitler; a symbol of insanity, pure evil and Machiavellian cynicism, if he appears in your dreams, it is worth asking what, or whom, is being tarred with one of the blackest names history can produce.

If you dream of Adolf Eichmann, a man responsible for organizing the shipping of Jews to the extermination camps in Poland in World War II and a powerful symbol of a fanatical obedience to an unjust cause, it may be that you are doing something for someone else that deeply toubles your conscience.

Mao Tse-Tung was responsible for the deaths of millions of his countrymen and his ‘Cultural Revolution’ led to the destruction of much of China’s cultural heritage and the imprisonment of a huge number of Chinese intellectuals, amongst other social chaos.

If he makes an appearance in dreams, it may be a warning against the dangers of personality over substance, and the total disregard for tradition and experience.

The final member of the triumvirate of hugely powerful and hugely evil leaders in the twentieth century is Joseph Stalin, who brought about the deaths of more than 20 million of his own people while holding the Soviet Union in an iron grip for during the middle part of last century. As with Hitler and Mao, Stalin is potent symbol of negativity, repression and cruelty.... The Element Encyclopedia

Flags And Their Symbolism

The way in which a flag is treated in your dream may represent the feelings you have towards the country that flag represents.

If it is dirty, burned, torn or trampled on, this may suggest anger against those who have attacked the country or anger against the country itself. A sea of waving flags in a crowd may suggest benign patriotism or a sense of foreboding about excessively strong nationalism.

If the flag is unknown, it may be a tribal emblem of your entire network of family and friends. Do you feel supported by them or neglected? Your positive or negative attitudes towards the flag in your dream may reveal your unconscious feelings on this issue. As always, the colors of your particular flag—whether or not the flag is known to you or associated with a country you have been to—will be significant.

As far as the universal symbolism for flags is concerned, you can ascribe meaning to certain symbols, but bear in mind that your personal associations should be considered first. For example, the cross in the flags of Greece, the Scandinavian countries and Britain is a symbol of Christianity, but it may be telling you something else.

Similarly, the Arabic writing on the flag of Saudi Arabia saying ‘There is no god but God, Mohammed is His Messenger’ and ‘God is Great’ on the flag of Iraq are also Islamic messages. The Star of David on the flag of Israel is an ancient Jewish symbol.

Religious symbolism can also be expressed via color. Green is often used in the flags of Arab and Islamic countries, such as Libya, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia; the flags of Kuwait, Jordan and Palestine all contain a green stripe. The flags of Turkey, Tunisia and Pakistan include the crescent moon, another traditional Islamic symbol.

Communistderived flags may include a hammer and sickle, as in the flag of the former USSR and the current flag of Angola, or a red background, such as the flags of China and Vietnam. The eagle has been used as a national or imperial symbol since the times of the Roman Empire, which was a huge and enduring Christian territory for over a millennium. Consequently, many Christian, imperial and other aspiring successors and hopefuls have adopted similar emblems, including Germany, Egypt, Russia and the Orthodox Christian Church.

Other symbols in flags can be self-explanatory, such as the ‘R’ in the middle of the old Rwanda flag, or they can be explained by the history, geography or flora and fauna of a country, such as the cedar tree in the flag of Lebanon.... The Element Encyclopedia

Unfamiliar Countries

If, in your dream, you find yourself in a country where everything seems strange and nothing seems familiar, this may suggest that you have difficulties in coping with change. However, if the people are friendly and welcoming, this may point to the stimulation and satisfaction of a new opportunity in waking life.

If you dream of a particular country but have never been there before, you might be imagining that you lived there in a past life. Alternatively, such a dream could represent the unknown within yourself, your dream journey representing an exploration of your unconscious.

Your dreams may use foreign countries in many ways to comment on your situation in waking life. For example, if you have bills to pay, the dream may be set in a tax haven such as Switzerland; if it is about your instincts, it may be set in some tropical jungle. Unless you have personal associations with the country in your dreams, if your dream is about a cold country, such as Poland or Russia, such a dream may be about your emotional life, with cold countries representing the need for more warmth in your life. In much the same way, hot countries, such as those in Africa or southern Asia, may represent passion.

More specifically, you may associate France with love, Italy with glamor, Germany with efficiency, Spain with passion, the USA with selfreliance, Belgium with dullness, and all the other clichés with which we stereotype foreigners and foreign countries.

Foreign Places and Peoples

If your dream highlighted a specific foreign country the brief information below concerning the various countries, continents and parts of the world may help you with the interpretation. It will also apply to a foreigner you encounter in your dream or recognize as being from a particular country or region. For example, if you meet a French person in your dream, the interpretation for France would apply. See if any of the details given about the location, shape on a map, landscape, history or associations with a particular country trigger a personal association for you. You also need to pay attention to how you feel in the dream, as this will aid you with the interpretation. It would be impossible to list every single country; the list below is by no means comprehensive and simply designed to get you thinking along the right lines.

If the country or foreign person you dreamed about isn’t in the alphabetical list, or if you want to know more it might be worth your while doing some investigation of your own.

Finally, your dream country will belong to a specific continent or region; see if there are not wider issues at stake than merely those suggested by the country itself.... The Element Encyclopedia
