Authority Figures Such As Judges, Teachers Etc.

Our concept of authority first develops through our relationship with our father or father figure. Depending on how we were treated as children, our view of authority will be anything from a benign helper to an exploitative disciplinarian. Most authority figures will ultimately lead us back to what is right for us, although not necessarily what we might consider good for us. Authority figures in dreams initially appear to have power over us, though – if we are able to work with them properly – will generate within us the power to succeed.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

Punish / Punishment

The concept of divine retribution – that is, being punished by a force greater than ourselves – suggests a judgemental god. Spiritual punishment is much more, however, the idea of self-flagellation for not having achieved what is required of us.

Punishment

Often, this dream is provoked by feelings of guilt for something that has happened or something you have done. No matter if it is you who is punished or the one who punishes, it always reveals a sense of guilt, defeat, or resentment. You may also be punishing yourself. An individual that had traumatic experiences in childhood may constantly blame herself for her actions. In that case, the dreamer must liberate herself from the social or parental pressure that subjugates her.

Gypsy people believe that dreaming that you are punished reveals the guilt you feel for having neglected your personal relationships.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Punishment

You may have had a dream in which you committed a crime and found yourself being punished for your actions. You may have woken from such a dream feeling extremely relieved that you have not committed a crime or been punished, but lingering feelings of anxiety may stay with you. Try to identify your feelings about such a dream as they will help with the interpretation. Did you feel guilty or angry that an injustice had been done to you? If you can discover how you feel about the punishment, this may hold the key to the interpretation.

If you felt guilty, perhaps there is something in your waking life that you feel is wrong or is destroying your peace of mind.

If you are actually caught in the act in your dream and find yourself awaiting or being sentenced to punishment of some kind, this is a clear message of disapproval from your dreaming mind and a warning that if you don’t change your ways, you will be in danger of being found out in waking life. Try to identify who punished you in your dream.

If it was someone you know, you may be feeling remorseful towards them in waking life, but if it was someone you do not know, you may be feeling guilty about breaking a law or rule in waking life or showing disrespect for authority.

If a lynch mob attacked you, have you committed a crime against society in general by not paying your taxes or dropping litter? If you dreamed of being accused of a crime you did not commit and nobody believed your protestations of innocence, do you feel you are being treated unfairly in your waking life? When the punishment was pronounced in your dream, did you feel that is was out of proportion to the wrongdoing.

If you felt the punishment was far too severe, this suggests that you are feeling extremely guilty about someone thing you have done in waking life.

If you were whipped in your dream, do you feel as if life has dealt you some harsh blows?

If you were arrested in your dream, this suggests the need for some kind of restraint in your waking life, or a fear of authority in general.

If a crime scene or forensic team appears in your dream, your dreaming mind is encouraging you to understand your motives.

Punishment

Your dreaming mind may from time to time inflict punishment on you for thoughts and actions of which your waking self disapproves. In most cases, the dream symbols will be disproportionate to the ‘crime’. For example, if you have spoken thoughtlessly about a friend, you may find yourself being executed as you have murdered your friend’s good name. Your dreams may also reflect your belief that someone else deserves to be punished and the criminal being caught in your dream may be some one else, not you.

An angry mob can suggest aspects of your own personality, as well as public opinion.

If you dream of being lynched, ask yourself whether you have been behaving appropriately in waking life. Whatever the instrument of punishment or torture in your dreams, be it the gallows, cane, guillotine, gibbet or birch, you need to identify who is being punished and why they are being punished. Bear in mind, too, that the inflicting of punishment, especially if it is a beating, may reflect a tendency towards masochism. Those dream interpreters that draw on Jung’s theory that nightmares are concerned with the shadow consider scary dreams to be a form of self-punishment for the cravings and desires you suppress during the day.

If you dream that you are back at school and forced to stay after a lesson in detention because you have not worked or listened properly, this may suggest that you are not absorbing information or paying significant attention to something important in your waking life. The ultimate image of punishment in dreams is hell, so if you dream of being condemned to hell, suffering eternal torment or are damned forever, this may be a reference to a mistake you have made in waking life, or something you have said or done and the force with which you are rebuking or warning yourself....

1- For many people, a teacher is the first figure of authority they meet outside the family. That person has a profound effect on the child and the teacher is often dreamt about in later years. Teachers can also generate conflict if their expressed views are very different to those learnt by the child at home. This may be something which has to be resolved through dreams in later vears.

2- When we are looking for guidance, the Animus/Anima (see Introduction) can present itself in dreams as a teacher. Often the figure will be that of a headmaster or headmistress (someone who ‘knows better’).

Teacher

The figure of the teacher is very important. It represents the values of knowledge, experience, and wisdom. This dream, however, can have many nuances. For example, if you are a strict school teacher, inclined to punish students, it is a sign that you lack security. The cause may be from a latent inferiority complex that is balanced out by a controlling and dictatorial attitude. In most cases, having a dream of this kind does not speak well of your maturity.

If the teacher is a serious, formal, scholarly person, it means that you are at a formative stage of intellectual development.

If the teacher inspires respect and admiration (a father figure), the dream expresses emotional maturity and stability. (See GRANDPARENTS, ACADEMY, AUTHORITY, LIBRARY, and HERMIT)... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Teacher

A teacher in a dream is part archetype and part character aspect.

The teacher is the one with the knowledge, and to dream of one is to be tapping into the part of you that knows.

If the teacher is someone known to you, add the element of that person’s personal qualities to your interpretation.

The less you know of the teacher in a dream, the more you may be experiencing wisdom at an archetypal level. No matter how the teacher appears, consider that there may be something for you to learn. Learning occurs by accumulating small amounts of data that build upon each other. Teachers know what piece of information needs to be added next in order for learning to take place.

A figure of authority, the teacher is the one person at school who knows what the lesson plan is. Teachers have both the questions and the answers. Not only do they control what happens in the classroom, but they also know why things are ordered in a particular way. Each of our teachers presents us with the specific information needed to master a particular level of our functioning. Any teacher in a dream represents the part of you that understands this concept of step-by-step mastery and provides the mental environment in which learning occurs, or is blocked. There is great patience built into this process, even though many of your teachers in life may have lacked this quality. When a teacher appears in your dream, examine the person as a character aspect of yourself.

The teacher’s behavior toward you in the dream and your resulting feelings will offer insight as to how well your inner guidance system is operating and to what degree you are showing yourself patience with the pace of your growth.

A kindly teacher will result in a very different interpretation from one who is abusive or frightening.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Teacher

Teaching is the art of communicating knowledge, experience, skill, and wisdom to another. Teaching, or offering instruction of any kind, can manifest through parental guidance, business apprenticeship, or by inspired instruction in ethics or kindness.

If this archetype appears in your dreams, it can suggest that others seek you out for the richness of your experience or that you need to seek out someone or something to teach you the ropes. The shadow teacher manifests as a desire to manipulate or abuse those you are instructing, and to be more concerned with recognition than with imparting knowledge.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you dream of a teacher, tutor or lecturer you know or don’t know but who treats you kindly and with respect, it may mean that you are in need of guidance, advice or knowledge. Sometimes the subject with which the teacher in your dream is associated may be a clue as to why they have entered your slumber. Teachers are authority figures that have power over children so your dreaming mind may also have summoned a teacher into your dream to represent your boss or even yourself, if you are in charge of others.
