To see others in adversity, portends gloomy surroundings, and the illness of some one will produce grave fears of the successful working of plans.
The old dream books give this as a sign of coming prosperity. This definition is untrue. There are two forces at work in man, one from within and the other from without. They are from two distinct spheres; the animal mind influenced by the personal world of carnal appetites, and the spiritual mind from the realm of universal Brotherhood, present antagonistic motives on the dream consciousness.
If these two forces were in harmony, the spirit or mental picture from the dream mind would find a literal fulfilment in the life of the dreamer.
The pleasurable sensations of the body cause the spirit anguish.
The selfish enrichment of the body impoverishes the spirit influence upon the Soul.
The trials of adversity often cause the spirit to rejoice and the flesh to weep.
If the cry of the grieved spirit is left on the dream mind it may indicate to the dreamer worldly advancement, but it is hardly the theory of the occult forces, which have contributed to the contents of this book. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

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.

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.

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.

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.

A rudderless, drifting raft or boat suggests loss of direction, but some believe that sometimes not knowing where you are going can be a way of discovering your true self. A raft is an image of survival and, in some ways, this image suggests the ability to ride out the sea of troubles rather than be overwhelmed. Strange reflections in the mirror are often said to suggest personal identity problems during times of conflict—if it’s your face, and your eyes are closed, this is a refusal to confront reality and if it is someone else’s face, this may indicate a sense of inadequacy when compared to them. No face at all is the ultimate identity crisis; a fear of death itself.

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
