Meaning of Tenderness Dreams | Dream Interpretation

Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.


Dreams can be used to explore your feelings about yourself. For example, if you see other people touching or loving each other and feel excluded or dream that you are surrounded by loved ones, this often expresses a need for the comfort, support and unconditional affection that you enjoy when someone is completely in love with you. Such dreams could be a strong indication that your levels of selfesteem need a boost; one way to do that is to seek out the love and support of those closest to you. Alternatively, the characters in your dream may represent aspects of yourself. Are they warm and loving or were you unable to reach or feel them because they were so self-centered?

Dreams in which you see yourself reaching out in some way suggest a desire for something or someone you do not have; this may either be an emotional or a physical absence. Your dream may also be telling you that you are trying to manipulate circumstances or control others with your emotional neediness. This is particularly relevant if your efforts to reach out and touch others are rejected or received with distaste. Witnessing a dream betrothal, wedding or engagement is another variation of the wish-fulfillment compensatory dream. Lastly, dreams in which you are in love with someone—it could be anyone you know or do not know in waking life—but your feelings are not reciprocated are less positive, as they reveal a fear of being rejected by your loved ones in waking life or uncertainty about the affection of someone about whom you care deeply in waking life.

Body

It refers to oneself, as in the word sorcxehxty. Al­though it includes the totality of our expenence, it seems to be most pointedly referring to our sense of identity. From this sense of ourself we project meaning on to the rest of the world in some degree. Thus many symbols are stylised body forms.

The cross is a standing figure with arms outstretched, a church’s structure a representation of the body, and the mira­cle of sexual reproduction—the mystery enacted within it; a maypole, the penis. Therefore various things can represent our body or aspects of ourself. Seeds, swallowed teeth can be sperm, anything long and pointed, even a linger, can be the penis; anything hairy, a male; anything receptive like a bottle, bowl or cave, a woman or vagina.

A body, or our body, also represents physical life; material existence; the process which causes growth and aging. This includes all the processes of nature in us.

A dead body: our skin or shape is felt as our boundary, the edge of our universe.

The dead body depicts a whole set of personality traits or attitudes, very often potentials, which have been denied life by us. We have not allowed them expression.

A person hun in love might kill out any feelings towards the opposite sex. This ‘dead pan of them can be shown as a body. May also be the way we meet feelings about death. Sickness in body: can refer to an awareness of illness in pan of body shown. Most often depicts psychological problem symbolised by pan of body— see body pans below. Maggots in body: possible need to cleanse body of toxins or infection, sense of dis-ease emotion­ally in that area of self. Iniunes: huns or events that may lead to emotional scars—see body areas below. See dead people dreams; hiding.

Bodiless: Example: lI felt as if I was going very deep inside myself. It was dark but at first there were noises of the world around me. I seemed to go in much deeper and it was very dark, but with the feeling of great space. Everything was all right until I didn’t hear any noise at all, all that space and no noise was too much and my whole body freaked out and then pulled out very fast before I could stop it’ (Kate P).

The ‘noises’ around us, sensory impressions, other people s ex­pressed feelings and actions, are building bricks for our sense of self. In a real sense we create each other by believing in each other. With prolonged absence of other people and events, and especially if we lose our noises’ and body aware­ness, we feel we—our sense of identity—is dying. Bodiless- ness may therefore show us feeling unrecognised, unnoticed. May also be feelings of loneliness; being cut off from sexuality and body drives. In its positive side it is exploration of the unconscious and void. See identity and dreams.

If you are right handed, the left of the body: represents inner feelings which support outer action, such as confidence, our less used or supportive functions.

If we are an intellectual, the left might depict one’s feelings, and vice versa.

The left may represent our mother’s influence in our life and body.

The right of the body: our outer activity and dominant func­tions; expressed abilities; our father’s influence in life and body.

If father is an anxious man there might be a lot more signs of stress on this side of the body. Top half of body: thinking, feeling. Bottom half: sexuality and instincts. Half a body: if top missing, lack of thinking and higher emotion; if bottom, trauma to, loss or denial of, sexuality and sensuality. Old head on baby body: immature sexuality and emotions; vice versa: immature personality. Dismembered body: emo­tional or mental stress and breakdown; may be followed by emergence of new self.

The areas of our body are sometimes thought of as sense organs. This may seem strange but is very simple. Without language, communication would be difficult. So language en­ables us to sense what another being is communicating.

If we had been castrated or had a hysterectomy prior to adoles­cence, we would never develop sexually. Without that devel­opment we would not understand two kissing people; or what a mother was feeling when she held her baby. Out of the sex drive develops a whole world of feelings and tenderness which enables us to understand many things we see in the world.

It is therefore important when reading the particular de­scriptions below to remember that each psychological area of our body gives us some insight into ourself and life around us, which is missing if the area is injured or traumatised. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Devil

Usually repressed natural drives, particularly sexual feeling—one can express physical sex, yet still repress sexual longing and connected emotions of tenderness.

It is what is unlived in us, and devil is lived spelt backwards. Any code of conduct, whether accepted from parents or peers, leaves as­pects of our total self unlived.

The struggle with paternal au­thority or power within oneself is often represented as the devil.

If we change our code of conduct, we may meet the devil because we release the previously unlived area of self. As Pan: the same, except that Pan represents losing oneself to the natural urges. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Flowers

Sense of beauty; flowering of the feeling quality or ability; the sexual organs, depending on shape. Example: So for the third time I held the woman and made love.

The woman’s vagina was like a flower—1 don’t mean to look at, but in physical sensation. My penis felt like it was penetrating petals of flesh and touching with great pleasure a central re­ceptive area. I was left with the feeling of being able to make love again and again without any negative effects. It was a very positive and healthy feeling’ (John T).

Also feelings of pleasure; youthfulness; time of flowenng. Bud: penis or vagina, in the sense of growing male or female qualities. Giving flowers: giving love and tenderness. Many flowers growing: feelings of well-being and relaxation. Dead flowers: death or old age; dying love or abilities. Giving dead flowers: wishing someone dead or out of one’s life; dead feel­ings. Lotus, lily : as these grow from mud, through water to the air and light, they sometimes represent our wholeness and growth, showing our connection with the universal as we de­velop individually. Rose: love; femininity. Shape or number of petals is featured: a flowering of a new aspect of the self. See colours; shapes; castrate. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The lips had pink lipstick on. I kissed it. Its paw came up around my arm, I could see the black claws. We were rolling around on the floor, it felt very sexual’ (Pat A).

Jewels

1- Jewels appearing in dreams almost invariably symbolise those things which we value. These may be personal qualities, our sense of integrity, our ability to be ourselves, or even our very essential being. When we feel we know what we arc looking for, we are aware on some level of its value to us or others. When we simply register that we are looking for jewels, sometimes up a mountain, otherwise in a cave, we are attempting to find those parts of ourselves that we know will be of value in the future. Counting or in some way assessing them would suggest a time of reflection is needed.

2- If the jewels are set made up into wearable articles we are aware of some of the uses of whatever the jewel signifies.

For instance, to find an emerald ring might suggest that we have completed a stage of growth towards immortality ‘There are different interpretations for each gemstone, and opinions do vary as to the correct ones.

Many stones have healing properties, and this is a whole subject in itself.

The reader is referred to the many good books on this subject.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Piston

also see Engine

1- A piston in a dream can be taken to mean sexual drive or activity. In this context it is more of a mechanical action than a loving act, and may show the dreamer’s attitude to sex. In a woman’s dream a piston may reveal her fear of being hurt sexually. She mav also be aware that she is simply being used, and that there is no tenderness. In a man’s dream such an image may indicate his sense of identity and masculinity.

If the piston is not rigid a man may fear impotence, whereas a woman will feel perhaps that she cannot trust her partner.

2- A piston may also represent a person’s drive for success.

The dreamer mav need to assess the amount of effort that is necessary for him or her to be able to achieve their goals. They may need to rccognise that conccntratcd effort which is fairly mechanical may, at this stage, achieve more than creative flair.

The piston, being only part of an engine, requires the rest of the components to operate successfully. Often a great deal of help can be gained by considering the way in which the piston works. In other words, when at a particular stage of development our actions may have to be mechanical, we also need the fuel and the container with which to operate.

3- The spiritual drive that is, the need to be complete, requires effort which can be enhanced by- using our resources properly.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
