(God’s prophet Yahya, upon whom be peace; John) Seeing him (uwbp) in a dream means being endowed with piety, love for God Almighty, fear of wrongdoing and being distinct and unequalled in one’s time. Seeing God’s prophet Yahya in a dream also means that one will acquire power and receive glad tidings.... Islamic Dream Interpretation
Deep bonds with a Relative (often a symbol for parts of yourself), whom you see as your idol, or who is or should be a threatening example. As a dream symbol, incest has an extremely positive as well as a negative meaning. On one hand, incest dreams express a longing for a deep connectedness and bonding that is clamoring for expression on all levels (body, mind, and soul). In a dream where the brother or sister is seen as the lover who is similar and related, in that sense, the dream makes possible a complete union of the masculine and the feminine even within one’s own soul. On the other hand, this dream symbol may also represent the matter of love versus power.
It is important to note who is making love: sister / brother incest may indicate that control is exercised at the expense of the bonding aspect.
It is indeed the brother / sister incest act that expresses such a longing for complete devotion, while at the same time adding the attraction of the forbidden, which in our society makes anything sexual so exciting.
In the case of mother / son or father / daughter incest, the same dynamics may also come into play, hut there is the added aspect of the unequal power between parent and child. Such dreams always point to an immature sexuality on the part of the adult, who is afraid of a relationship between equals.
At the same time we should always remember with such a dream that a certain kind of masochism is involved—in the form of fear / pleasure—that resides in all of us. And we might want to be grateful when it finds expression in such dream images only! Last but not least, we also need to take into consideration the Oedipus and Electra complexes, where a child desires the parent of the opposite sex. Psychoanalytically, this stage of sexual development needs to be overcome in order to have satisfying sexual experiences with equals.... Little Giant Encyclopedia
History suffers from no shortage of evil figures. Amongst the most cruel and appalling must be numbered such figures as Genghis Khan, the leader of the pitiless Mongol hordes who swept across Europe from the East. Another is Tomas de Torquemada, whose name is synonymous with the Christian Inquisition’s horror, religious bigotry and cruel fanaticism. Of similar repute is Ivan the Terrible, the grand prince of Moscow and the first to be proclaimed Tsar of Russia. Through cruelty and torture, his reign saw the completion of the construction of a centrally administered Russian state and the creation of an empire that included non-Slav states.
Perhaps unequalled in the annals of human depravity is the name of Adolf Hitler; a symbol of insanity, pure evil and Machiavellian cynicism, if he appears in your dreams, it is worth asking what, or whom, is being tarred with one of the blackest names history can produce.
If you dream of Adolf Eichmann, a man responsible for organizing the shipping of Jews to the extermination camps in Poland in World War II and a powerful symbol of a fanatical obedience to an unjust cause, it may be that you are doing something for someone else that deeply toubles your conscience.
Mao Tse-Tung was responsible for the deaths of millions of his countrymen and his ‘Cultural Revolution’ led to the destruction of much of China’s cultural heritage and the imprisonment of a huge number of Chinese intellectuals, amongst other social chaos.
If he makes an appearance in dreams, it may be a warning against the dangers of personality over substance, and the total disregard for tradition and experience.
The final member of the triumvirate of hugely powerful and hugely evil leaders in the twentieth century is Joseph Stalin, who brought about the deaths of more than 20 million of his own people while holding the Soviet Union in an iron grip for during the middle part of last century. As with Hitler and Mao, Stalin is potent symbol of negativity, repression and cruelty.... The Element Encyclopedia
Egypt, at the north-east corner of Africa on the Mediterranean Sea, is bordered on the west by Libya, on the south by the Sudan, and on the east by the Red Sea and Israel. Egypt is divided into two unequal, extremely arid regions by the landscape’s dominant feature, the northward-flowing river Nile. In dreams, Egypt is generally a sign of the spiritual life and conveys a spiritually related message of some kind. It can also suggest a yearning to learn more about human history....
