What relationship is sustained between the average man and his dreams?
Then why is man not always able to correctly interpret his dreams?
If they relate to the future, why is it we so often dream of the past?
Why is it that present environments often influence our dreams?
What is an apparition?
How does subjectivity deal with time?
If that is so, why can’t you tell us accurately of our future as you do of our past?
According to Adler, dreams are an expression of our ambitious desire for power and success, a way of overcompensating for shortcomings in our waking life.
For example, if a person is unable to stand up to their boss, they may safely lash out in anger at him or her in a dream. Thus dreams offer some sort of satisfaction that is socially acceptable.
Although some dreams can be interpreted as wish-fulfillment, most modern dream researchers believe that dreams have another purpose, to periodically present us with reports on our progress to date. Sometimes these updates are purely expressions of wish-fulfillment, and therefore easy to interpret: for example, those fantastic dreams in which you win the lottery, or audition successfully for the lead role in a Hollywood blockbuster. Sometimes, though, dreams are harder to interpret because the dreaming mind speaks in the confusing language of symbols. Understanding such dreams is, however, important because they often contain pertinent observations and warnings—not yet registered by the conscious mind—that can help us achieve our goals in waking life....

If all the suits feel tight or ill-fitting, you need to protect your reputation by cooling down your activities with boys.
If you try on lots of great suits, success is ahead for you.
If you dream of wearing a bikini, you want to fall in love. Also think about the color of the swimsuit(s) to get more meaning out of your dream.... My Dream Interpretation
The very act of swimming, immersing oneself in water for sheer pleasure, brings with it a likelihood of nakedness. Culturally, however, we are compelled to cover up. In this way, a bathing suit is a symbol of that modesty and the desire to keep a certain amount of protection. There is also an implication associated with this symbol of a connection to water that may not be present in the dream itself.
If you are wearing a bathing suit, then you have in the past or may in the future connect yourself to water, the ultimate symbol of emotional expression.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
The child who has this kind of dream tends to be coping with some kind of problem or obstacle; for example, financial hardship, or family tensions and conflicts, and the dream may reflect these tensions. The child may feel that they are trapped by the situation and are helpless to do anything about it; the dream refers to their desire to make problems disappear magically. But this kind of dream may point to more than a wish for magical powers, as it also shows the dreamer that within them these magical and unique powers are just waiting to be discovered....

You are frantically running away from an unseen pursuer or perhaps a crowd of people. Yet you always wake up before you are caught.
An unknown pursuer often represents an inner force that you are reluctant to acknowledge but which is determined to become a part of your life. The more you try to run from it the more threatening it feels. You therefore need to turn and confront it. When you do you may find that something you assumed was hostile is in fact an ally. The pursuer may symbolize unused abilities or unresolved emotional issues.
Whatever is chasing you could be an unfriendly figure that embodies a situation you feel threatened by in waking life, like an illness, problems at work or difficulties in a relationship. It could also signify a negative aspect of your nature, usually a harsh inner critic that stops you from feeling at peace with yourself.
Being chased by someone you know may mean you are harbouring hostile feelings towards this person that you need to resolve.
Crowds of people who are pursuing you often symbolize the demands you make on yourself in an effort to please others.

For instance one may feel trapped by one’s own feelings of dependence upon family.
Example: ‘1 am trapped in a bricked room with no way out and I shout for somebody to help me. Then either a big bird or a creature with long arms tries to catch me, and I scream’ (Karen S). Karen had previously lost a baby, been divorced, had an unsatisfying relationship with a man. She feels trapped by the defences she has herself built ‘brick by brick’, but is frightened of the opportunity of change represented by the bird. What encloses or traps us in our dream gives a clue to what constrains us in waking.
Example: ‘As I go through a tunnel it either gets smaller so I can’t get through, or it goes on so far there is no end to it. I am trapped and terrified’ (Don M). This son of enclosed dream is typical of trauma relating to a difficult binh. In fact Don’s mother was in labour for four days, and never had another child because of the pain. ...

If you are not good at expressing yourself verbally, dreaming of a flood may help you come to terms with your anxieties and insecurities.
If you dream of being drowned, it suggests you are in danger of being overwhelmed by emotions you cannot handle or that you are fearful of allowing your emotions free expression. Drowning may also indicate an inability to handle stress and a feeling that you have no control. The natural disasters of flooding, tsunami and drought indicate great hardship for the dreamer, but they also offer hope. For example, if you dream that you are immersed in rising water or that your house is flooded, this indicates the emergence of a personal crisis. However, if adequate precautions are put in place, or you heed warning signs of impending disaster, it is possible to avert or overcome the disaster. Similarly, a dream in which you endure a drought portends misfortune, and scant reward for your effort, but the dreamer can take comfort that this difficult time will pass, leaving you wiser and better prepared for any future crises with which life may surprise you.
Tidal waves or tsunamis often represent a cascade of emotion or impending change in your life. It is not unusual for someone struggling with a tough situation, such as the loss of a job, illness in the family and so on, to dream of being threatened by a tidal wave. A tidal wave in this instance depicts the emotional devastation that occurs when situations change in unexpected, or unwanted, ways. Whether the wave represents emotion, change, or something or someone else, to you the implication is that you are in the thick of it now and you have little to gain by running away or denying it. Your best approach is to ride the wave, accept that you feel overwhelmed for a while, but know that this isn’t permanent as the storm will run its course and you’ll emerge wiser and stronger.
Famine and drought dreams can also indicate that you are emotionally drained in waking life.
If you are hungry in your dream, your needs or demands, physically, emotionally and mentally are not being met.Starvation dreams also indicate that something within yourself is not being given due attention; aspects of yourself are being impoverished and ignored. Perhaps your partner is draining you and you are feeling exhausted.
If scenes of poverty feature in your dream, this often indicates feelings of being inadequate, or negative emotions depriving you of your well-being. On the other hand, dreams about starvation and poverty may be hinting at your humanitarian qualities, and could be suggesting that you could do more for charity.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you know the person or the sphere of life they represent, try to work out why you should be feeling intimidated by them in the real world.
If you didn’t recognize the person, it is possible that they represent aspects of yourself about which you are in denial or from which you are trying to escape; such an interpretation is particularly likely if they are of the same sex and their appearance repulsed you. The attacker may have been your shadow, representing your dependence, neediness, jealousy, greed or lust. Your unconscious is encouraging you to come to terms with this quality within yourself and deal with it.
If a monster, animal or anything nonhuman was chasing you, this symbolizes internal fears rather than external threats. Such creatures generally represent your aggressive animal or instinctual nature which you need to learn to control. Not knowing who or what is out there in the darkness trying to get you is a classic anxiety or frustration dream often experienced if you are about to begin therapy; the anxiety is provoked by your realization that the therapist might reveal unexamined areas of yourself. Whoever or whatever your pursuer symbolizes, remember that they represent a challenge you need to face in order for it to be neutralized. As with dreams of pursuit, if you are drowning or struggling to breathe in your dream, you may be experiencing feelings of panic and uncertainty in waking life. Such a dream also alerts you to areas of your unconscious that need to be confronted.... The Element Encyclopedia
If you are a woman, you may have suffered an incubus attack; if you are a man, you may have suffered a succubus attack. In the past, when sexual pleasure was considered sinful, women who had erotic dreams were said to have been visited by the incubus, or male demon, whilst a sexually voracious succubus, or female demon, was said to visit a sleeping man. These evil spirits were thought to pin down and paralyze their sleeping victims in order to have sex with them. The words ’incubus’ and ’succubus’ are still used today to describe the sensation of having a weight press down on your chest, accompanied by a feeling of dread and being unable to move while you are sleeping. They are no longer applied to dreams about sex, which are of course natural and normal.
Incubi (plural of ’incubus’, meaning ’one who lies upon’ in Latin) were thought to be particularly fond of seducing nuns and other women committed to the celibate life. Sexual repression is thought to be the most likely explanation but the cause of this phenomenon remains unclear. Dream experts have ruled out demons and malevolent spirits as the cause, suggesting instead that they may have been caused by temporary breathing difficulties combined with sleep paralysis, a condition that occurs in the state just before dropping off to sleep or just before fully awakening from sleep. The condition is characterized by being unable to move or speak. It is often associated with a feeling that there is some sort of menacing presence, a feeling which often arouses fear but is accompanied by an inability to cry out. The paralysis, which experts are unable to explain fully, typically lasts a few seconds but leaves a lasting impression on the dreamer.... The Element Encyclopedia

If he is a scholar, it means that his knowledge will be widely spread and his virtues and servitude will benefit others, or ifone is a physician, it means that he will become renowned and most successful.

SeeingJesus upon whom be peace in a dream also means glad tidings, for he was the last of God’s prophets who gave the glad tidings and spoke of God’s Messenger Muhammad, upon whom be peace, as the praiseworthy comforter.
(Poclete; Praclytos. See John 14-15/18, 25/26, 29/30) Seeing Jesus upon whom be peace in a dream also means answering one’s prayers, or wrath against people from the upper social class, or against those who challenged him to bring down a table of food from the heavens then had doubt about God’s power again. Seeing him in a dream also represents bounty, good luck, or having good friends.
If a child sees Jesus in a dream, it could mean that he will grow up as an orphan, or be reared by his mother and live as a scholar and a righteous person, or he may travel frequently between Syria and Egypt.

Ifone sees Jesus upon whom be peace descending upon a town, it means that justice and righteousness will prevail and permeate that place, as it will be when he shall, by God’s leave, descends upon the earth to kill the impostor (Antichrist) and destroy his followers, obliterate infidelity, and he shall fill the earth with justice, blessings and lend victory to the believers....

Dreaming of one of them indicates that you are experiencing a high level of self-discovery and integration. Jesus and Buddha exemplify the masculine principle at its highest level of evolution.

Your dreaming mind may have been urging you to take some time out of your busy schedule for the things you love to do. It could also have been suggesting ways in which you could improve your experience or become more accomplished at it. If, however, the leisure activity in your dream is something you wouldn’t dream of doing during your waking hours, then the chances are that your unconscious was referring to your current approach to life. For example, dreams in which you are playing chess may emphasize your concern with intellectual development or competition. For Freudians, dreams that feature a preoccupation with leisure pursuits are potent symbols of sexual excitement.
Jungians, however, would see dream leisure activities as a mirror of your spiritual aspirations.

If one sees himself and his wife being the only people who are brought for judgement of the grand Day of Gathering in a dream, it means that he is being unjust. Ifa warrior sees the Day of Resurrection in a dream, it means that by God’s decree, the aggressor shall be defeated.
The land of the grand gathering in a dream represents a chaste woman or a noble man.
The blowing of the Trumpet of Resurrection in a dream represents the salvation of the righteous ones. Seeing any of the great extraordinary events or signs that shall precede the Dayof resurrection in a dream means glad tidings for a believer who does good, and a warning for a disbeliever to correct himself and repent for his sins before its coming. Seeing the Day of Resurrection in a dream also denotes that some of the major signs are actually taking place, such as blood shedding, spread of evil, belligerence of atheism, pride about wealth, ruling of the working class, building high rises, the end of the era of kings on earth, or it could remind the person of the prophesied signs, such as the rising of the sun from the West, the emergence of a beast that will speak with a human tongue, the rising of the Imposter (arb. Dajjiil, Antichrist), etcetera. Seeing the Day of Resurrection in a dream also represents the spread of evil, the presence of an extended police force, and the ruling of large armies and dictatorships around the world. Thus, seeing the Day of Resurrection in a dream is a reminder and a warning to the one who sees it. Ifone sees the graves splitting open, dead people resurrected back to life and are walking out of them accompanied with their angels in a dream, it means that justice will prevail in that land.
If one experiences the resurrection in a dream, then discovers that the world went back to continue its prior course, it means that justice will dominate that land for a while, then it will be followed by a tyranny that will be carried by people who are not even suspected to be of such character. Such a dream also could be interpreted to suit a person who is seeking the impossible, or one who is adamant at pursuing the path of wrongdoing, falsehood and lies. Recognizing the eminent final signs of the Day of Reckoning in a dream means that one is unaware of his heedlessness and such dream constitutes a warning. Ifone’s reckoning is easy in a dream, it denotes his wife’s piety, compassion and love for him.
If one’s reckoning is detailed and painful in a dream, then it represents major losses.
If one’s good deeds weigh heavier than his bad deeds in the dream, it means that his devotion is true and that his reward will be greater. Ifone sees himselfcarrying the scale to weigh his own deeds in a dream, it denotes his righteousness and correctness.
If one sees an angel handing him his records and telling him to read his own book in the dream, it also means that he is on the right path. Walking on the bridge of the Day of Judgment, carrying one’s own records and crying in a dream means that one is praying for God’s forgiveness and to ease his reckoning.
If one sees the Doomsday in a dream, it means that he will escape from dangerous enemies, or that perhaps a major trial will befall the dwellers of that place.
If one crosses the Bridge of Judgement in a dream, it means that he will escape a major trial, or perhaps it could represent a major hurdle one may have to cross in this life.
If one sees himself carrying his book of records in his right hand in a dream, it means that he will win righteousness, wealth and honor. Ifone sees himselfcarrying his book of records in his left hand in a dream, it means that he will fall into sin and the consequent poverty and need of others, for wealth and adultery do not mix. Ifone witnesses the emergence of the Imposter (Antichrist) in a dream, it signifies new trends, innovations and masses straying from the straight path.

Separation anxiety occurs when we have to confront the prospect of being separated from someone who is considered essential to our physical or emotional survival. Typically, separation anxiety occurs in relation to family members or partners, as these are the people with whom we normally have the closest relationships; the anxiety may often be reflected in nightmares and disturbing dreams. Although normal in childhood—when a child is absolutely dependent upon the parent to provide for its needs—separation anxiety in adulthood, when the presence of another person is used in defense against some other form of anxiety, is considered detrimental to a person’s emotional development. Dreams of suffocation or nightmare scenarios involving the separation, death or loss of a family member or spouse are often triggered by separation anxiety and in many instances they can offer clues to help manage and resolve these feelings in waking life.

Suitcase analysis of a dream
Carlos dreamed: “I was looking for my bag and could not find it anywhere. I was at the airport and my plane was about to take off. They announced the last call to board, and I could not remember where I had left it. I was very distressed, it had all my documents, valuables, and money. But I could not miss the plane because an important business meeting awaited me. I spent the whole dream running back and forth, searching every corner of the airport, but nothing, the suitcase did not appear and I couldn’t leave; the tickets were inside.”
When Charles had this dream he was suffering the first symptoms of mild depression. He felt very sad, insecure, and uncomfortable in his life, but did not know how to improve it. Searching in dreams alludes to a lack, something that we need for our emotional stability. The suitcase full of important things reflects the values that guide us in life, without which we would feel lost, like Carlos. The plane shows our desire to excel, to rise or transcend our daily concerns. The fact that he missed it indicates that he felt unable to move forward, despite his continued attempts (running from back and forth, looking everywhere . . .). A month later, Carlos began treatment with a psychoanalyst to overcome his sadness. After a few days, he found his oneiric suitcase in a dream and managed to catch the plane. In his waking world, he began to understand the causes of his discomfort and feel more satisfied and confident in himself.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

If it simply isn’t possible to interpret your dream this way, the next step would be to sit down with a pen and paper, think of your dream and begin to doodle. In some cases, the symbols that flow from your pen may relate to your dream or provide a point from which you can interpret it.
If this still doesn’t help, you can of course just let the dream go, but if the dream continues to nag at you, it is likely that it had something important to say. Many dream psychologists believe that there is no such thing as a meaningless dream, so if the images in your dream were so fantastic you simply can’t make sense of them, the following technique may help. Just before you go to sleep on the night after having a surreal dream, try to recall the symbols you had difficulty understanding; it is often the case that the dream you will have on this second night will contain the same message as the first dream, but perhaps expressed in symbols that are easier to comprehend. This technique is applicable with any difficult dream, not just dreams that contain elements of the fantastic or the surreal.... The Element Encyclopedia
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
According to Freud, fantasies develop in childhood in response to sexual desire and aggressive impulses. Jung also claimed that fantasy developed very early in life as a safety net to help the child deal with real conflicts in the family, conflicts that may be too difficult or painful to deal with directly. Jung observed that childhood fantasies include many mythological themes that may be inherent in everyone. He believed that fairy tales and myths do not differ fundamentally from dreams and speak in the same symbolic language. The archetypal images stir something in the unconscious part of yourself; they are dramatic symbolic projections of your identity.
In dreams, fantasy is unrestricted and moral judgment is suspended. Dreams can therefore reveal your most secret desires and the fantasies you experience in your dreams say a lot about you, often helping you tackle problems you might normally repress or deny.
If you can understand what your dream is highlighting, you can gain important insight into yourself. Fantasy dreams highlight problems, offer solutions, show what aspects of yourself may be limiting your progress and help you discover new approaches. In other words, fantasy dreams, like all dreams, can help you change and progress. See also MIND, BODY, SPIRIT; NIGHTMARES; SPIRITS AND GHOSTS.... The Element Encyclopedia
