If you have repressed issues, they may be coming to the surface. Think about the fear in your dreams and try to be honest with yourself. Face your fears and as a great American president once said “There is nothing to fear, but fear itself.” Having fearful dreams seems to be relatively common. Most dreams are unpleasant and that is the nature of our private unconscious. Issues and concerns, repressed emotions, and daily stress all contribute to an uneasy sleep and to fear filled dreams....

Example: ‘1 am alone in the house. It begins to grow dark, so I switch the light on, but the light is very dim. So I go to another room and try another light, but this light is even dimmer. I carry on like this all over the house until I am in virtual darkness and very frightened’ (Jw) Jw was s»x al the time of the dream, and here light depicts feelings of sureness or confidence, which gave way to anxiety.
The light is the opposite to the emotions of fear which arise from within. Flickering dimming lights: also feelings about death.
Example: ‘My husband was laying on top of me, his feet on my chest and was giving me sexual pleasure by kissing, licking, sucking my fanny. He reached over to turn the light on, he wanted to look at my body. I felt OK about him looking but saw the blinds were partly open and felt anyone walking past in the street would see as well, I felt very uneasy about that’ (Heather C). Here light represents becoming aware of how others might see one.
Very bright light: intuition; the Self; mega concept; see aura. Spotlight, searchlight: focusing attention on what is shown. Idioms: bright lights; cold light of day, come to light; hide one’s light; in its true light; lighter side; in a good light; see the light; light at the end of the tunnel; throw a light on.

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
A woman in a woman’s dream: an aspect of herself, but often a facet of herself she is not immediately identifying with.
The above example helps make this plain. Mo explored her feelings about the dream characters. It all fell into place when she asked herself what she had ‘lost’ recently. She had left a lover of some years’ standing. This gave her a lot more freedom and new opportunity, depicted by the baby, but also muddled feelings of loss. Her Australian friend represents her feelings of grieving for the death’ of her relationship. Her muddled feelings arise because she both loves the new life which opens up, but grieves for the death of her romance.
A woman’s sister, female children: particularly used to represent herself.
The character of the dream woman, loving, angry, businesslike, lazy, sexual, gives a clue to what pan of the dreamer it is referring to.
If the dream woman is a person known well, the above can still be the case, but the woman may represent what the dreamer feels about that person.
A woman younger than the dreamer oneself at that age.
An older woman: could be the dreamer’s mother, her feelings about aging, her sense of inherited wisdom. Two women and the dreamer, conflicting feelings or drives. One woman, one man: behaviour patterns arising from parental relationship.
A goddess or holy woman, the dreamer’s highest potential; what she is capable of but may not yet have lived.
Man dreaming of a woman
Example: ‘On a raised mobile platform a goddess stood. I loved her and flew to her, skimming above the heads of the people. I calked to her. She told me the only love I could receive from her was that which I gave to a human woman. Inasmuch as I gave love to a human female, she would love me. She was all women’ (Andrew P).
The example shows Andrew meeting his archetypal conception of a woman, his ideal. But he understands that you cannot love an ideal. His love must find a real woman. Through a real love he would call love from out of himself, out of his unconscious reserve.
In a man’s dream: his present relationship with his own feelings and intuitive self; his sensitivity and contact with his unconscious through receptivity; or how he is relating to his female partner.
The latter is especially so if the woman in the dream is his partner, how capable he is of loving a woman.
An old woman, usually the dreamer’s mother.
The woman, because she is his feelings, is obviously also his sexual desires and how he meets them.
A younger woman: can depict his desires for a woman of that age, or his more vulnerable emotions. Two women and the dreamer: an ‘eternal triangle’; conflicting feelings.
If one woman and one man: pattern of behaviour developed in relationship with parents.
The conditions or situations of the woman, see under appropriate entries, such as illness; murder, swimming; etc. See anima and the Great Mother under archetypes. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

If you are diving into water in your dream, this represents trying to find parts of yourself that have been repressed.
Dreams in which you are floating in warm water safely and calmly are amongst the most comforting and secure you can have. They may reflect a longing to be able to coast effortlessly through life, letting worries wash over you. But if you felt uneasy, such dreams may be mirroring your concern that you lack direction and power in waking life, and are just treading water as opportunities fly past you.
If you have a dream in which you are swimming calmly and happily through calm waters, this suggests a positive attitude to your waking life, as things are going well, or ‘swimmingly’, for you, and you feel in your element, be it at school, work or home. If, however, you dream that you are struggling against a current, it suggests inner conflict and the force of opinion against you in the waking world. In your dream, did you swim with the tide or continue with your struggle? If you found yourself out of your depth when you went swimming, this may mirror a sense of being out of your emotional depth. Drowning suggests that your emotions are overwhelming and engulfing you.
If a lifeboat appears, you believe your unconscious can throw you an emotional lifeline.
Where water is contained in a space, such as a bath or swimming pool, it signifies controlled emotion and restraint. A dream shower or bath in which you wash yourself may refer to a need to cleanse your emotions of negative influences, whilst a Jacuzzi may have sexual connotations. Being in a swimming pool may remind you of the importance of relaxation. A surreal underwater scene, in which you meet and interact with family and friends, may suggest that you have been too busy to take the time to connect emotionally with loved ones. It might be wise to slow down and devote more quality time to them in the real world.... The Element Encyclopedia

If they communicate with you in a familiar way, your dream may simply be reflecting the important part your friend plays in your life. If, however, your friend acts out of character or oddly, your unconscious may be warning you about an aspect of their character that makes you feel uneasy. On the other hand, your dream may be warning you that it is you rather than your friend that the dream is depicting, as the dreaming mind tends to project aspects of yourself onto people you are close to in waking life in order to make you aware of aspects of your personality that are being neglected or suppressed.
If you have a dream in which a friend suddenly turns on you or even tries to kill you, this image may have been sent to tell you that this particular friend is not all that they seem to be in real life.... The Element Encyclopedia
