Ball (game)

Symbol for letting go, as in Water, Brook / Stream. Playing ball represents self-expression. However, a ball, as in football and handball, also expresses aggressive penetration, forging ahead. Here, the reference is to the masculine side of pleasure in man as well as in woman. Often an expression of the pleasure men and women derive from submission. In rare cases, this symbolizes fear of aggression. According to analytical psychology, it is a symbol of wholeness, of concentrated psychic energy. In depth psychology it is connected to experiences with one’s own sexuality. If you yourself are the ball (in the game), it refers to a lack of willpower, steadfastness, and purpose. ... ball (game) dream meaning

Board Game

Games in dreamland symbolize the manner in which the dreamer is approaching life. Individual games, such as solitaire, will indicate your tendency for self- absorption, where excelling or enjoyment is a significant motive. Interactive games, such as chess, indicate that competition is a significant motive for you. In either case, the dream will be highlighting your thought processes, mental skills and dexterity. In general, dream board and card games indicate how you are rising to a particular challenge in your waking life or how successfully you are playing the hand that fate has dealt you. Little physical effort is required when playing board and card games, so games of this nature tend to focus on your intellectual performance or ability to think and react quickly. Pay attention to the tactics you use whilst playing and to your overall strategy. Were you calm and controlled with a set of tactics, or were you out of control? Was your game defensive or offensive? What is the dream telling you about your ability to respond to external stimuli in the directing of directing of your life? Are you self-motivated, continually striving to better your skill, or do you rely on competition for motivation? Your answer to questions such as these will tell you much about your current approach to waking life. Consider too the colors of the pieces or cards you were using and what they might signify. For example, if you were playing with white chess pieces, do you associate yourself with kindness and your opponent with malevolence? If you are accused of cheating in your dream, are you deceiving anyone in waking life? Games in which pieces are moved around a board at the throw of a dice are often designed to mirror life’s challenges and this is often what they represent in dreams, suggesting fears or concerns about factors you can’t control. The game board reveals the moves you make in life and a games room stands for a meeting place in which plans and strategies are devised. A game show cautions against a desire to consider yourself intellectually superior. Specific dreams may have their own symbolism; for example sexuality in snakes and ladders and the repercussions of your actions in games that require dominos. A game of backgammon may point to your desire to resolve the secrets of your unconscious (the inner table) before time or the other player stops you. Pool, billiards or snooker suggest clever scheming, combined with the skill to accomplish a goal. The condition of the poolroom will give you a clue as to whether this refers to healthy competition or dirty dealings, whilst the pool table refers to the issue or subject of your plans. ... board game dream meaning

Board Game

Universal Landscape: Solving conflict through structure and control. Dreaming Lens: What was the game being played? Did you know the rules of the game? Was it an actual game you know from life, or was it an imaginary game? Who was playing the game in your dream? What were your feelings about the players? What level of skill and ability was being expressed? Were you winning, or losing? Personal Focus: A board game is a civilized approach to expressing competitive impulses and conflict-solving skills. In a dream, it may be an analogy for the “game” in life it is designed to represent. Popular board games are created to convey certain themes of life experience through the process of playing them. Your first clue to investigating this symbol begins with the game itself. If it is known in the dream, the theme of the game is central to your interpretation. For example, the game of Risk would symbolize the risks we take in life that can lead to power and control. Another is Monopoly: the way we deal with acquiring and managing material abundance. Consider the game you encounter in your dream and determine the theme it expresses. If you do not know the game being played, the meaning you assign your dream should reflect this uncertainty. Your daily life may be reflecting a game plan and strategy that feels unfamiliar. If you are winning in your dream, you may be expressing recent experiences of successful negotiation of life’s complexities. If you are losing, the dream may be reflecting back to you where you are blocked or challenged. If the surreal environment of the game is the dreamscape itself, an overwhelming situation may literally be enveloping you. If the environment is more a source of fascination, your dream may be illuminating a sense of awe that some moments can inspire. With any game in a dream, there may be unconscious feelings that are demanding a strategic approach to understanding and ultimately, winning. ... board game dream meaning

Card Game

If you hold all the aces or win a game of poker with a royal flush are you feeling certain that you have a real advantage in the real world, of which those around you are unaware because you are holding your cards close to your chest or being secretive? There are many colloquial expressions associated with cards that your unconscious may be using to relay a message to you. For example, did you‘play your cards right’? Did you‘lay your cards on the table’, thereby revealing your intentions? If you did, your dreaming mind may be encouraging you to be more open about your intentions in real life. If you had an‘ace up your sleeve’, are you biding your time? In dreamlore, the old proverb‘lucky in cards, unlucky in love’ may filter through into your dreams; some believe that to dream of a winning hand is indicative of unrequited love. Other authorities urge a careful rethink of finances to anyone who experiences a dream win. If you focused on a particular card, does this have a particular relevance for you in waking life?Some dream analysts believe that particular suits have particular meanings that can aid dream interpretation. Hearts can suggest joy, happiness, love and romance. Diamonds highlight money concerns but also insights and aspirations. Clubs highlight knowledge, intellect and achieving goals. Spades represent the difficulties of life and warn of obstacles ahead that you will need endurance to overcome.

People dream about all different types of games. Some are simple and borrowed from daily life, like basketball or Monopoly. Other games in dreams are bizarre, incredible, totally unrealistic, and some are even sadistic. To interpret the dream you must consider its greater context and your emotional reactions in it. Some games are simply a form of entertainment from your unconscious. You may be having fun in your dream. This is not all that common, but it does happen from time to time. Other “game” dreams may represent the challenges in your life, your competitive nature, or your childishness. They may point out goals to be achieved or are a simple way to let out steam.

Psycho Dream Interpretation

Team Game

Most dreams in which you are playing a team game reflect how well you feel you are performing within a group situation in waking life, whether it is among your family and friends, or—more typically—in relation to colleagues at work. So if you dreamed of playing football, basketball, hockey, netball, rugby or volleyball, pay attention to how you are reacting or playing in the team. Are you the weak link? Are you lazy? Are you the one who pulls the team together? Are you a good sport? Do you play fairly, or do you cheat and break the rules? Do you respect authority and the decision of the referee or judges? Are you a team player or only concerned about your own performance? The answer to questions such as these will prove helpful if they are considered in the context of your participation in group dynamics in waking life. Dreams that feature baseball can be littered with sexual symbols such as the bat, the ball and the gloves. According to Freudians, such dreams—and this would be true of all games containing umpires or referees—might be an oblique reference to a challenge you have made to a father figure, as represented by the umpire. The white outfits worn in the game of cricket may suggest a yearning for childhood innocence; the friendly, relaxed and languid nature of the game might reveal a longing to withdraw from a fiercely competitive environment, whether at home or at work. The intense passions of football, whether in the form of rugby, soccer or gridiron, may symbolize sexual excitement; scoring a goal or a try, for example, might symbolize orgasm. Jungians, however, would see dream football as a mirror of the dreamer’s spiritual aspirations. Some team sports seem unlikely topics for a dream but your dreaming mind may select them specifically for their symbolism. To dream that you are part of a rowing team, for example, stresses the importance of collective effort and pulling together as a team. ... team game dream meaning

Video

This modern-day invention of moving pictures captured through a portable and ubiquitously accessible format pervades our culture in such an enormous way that there are literally dozens of ways in which the concept of “video” connects to other elements of symbolism. At the heart of it, video relates to our ability to create in our own image the experience of being human. We make movies and those movies become a permanent record of our journey. Once the lofty realm of only a privileged few, the technology of video has been made accessible to the masses. There are two sensibilities that must be considered when this symbol appears in a dream. The first is the creative impulse to capture an element of life unfolding. The ability to record, pause, fast-forward, and watch at your leisure instills a sense of control in the meaning of video in a dream. ... video dream meaning

Video Games

Video games are symbolic of total and utter escapism and mindless thought. They are a modern phenomenon that will have very different symbolic meaning based on your personal relationship to them. The diehard gamer will have a joyous experience of that escapism, while a critic might hold a more judgmental perspective. Where you stand on this continuum will provide the full picture for your interpretation. There is a perspective of video games that connects to a type of skill building; however, those skills have very little practical value outside of the realm of playing the game repeatedly. This is where the element of mindless thought enters into the symbolic meaning of video games. The presence of a video game in a dream is an ironic appearance of detachment and should be considered as a possible defense against whatever the unconscious mind may be attempting to express. If someone in your dream is playing a video game, understanding the character aspect in you that the person represents will identify what area of your consciousness is avoiding reality. ... video games dream meaning

Word Game

Sometimes your dreaming mind will use visual, verbal or colloquial puns to get a point across. For example, if your dream contained images of hands, this could indicate that you are in need of a helping hand or that you are feeling handled or manipulated. Other possible puns might include: an airplane (are you feeling plain?); first in the queue (are you being up front?); dreaming of a highway bypass (are you concerned about being bypassed in life?) and so on. The list is practically endless. The idea is to start looking for puns in your dreams based on visual images, words, people’s names and common sayings. Also look out for verbal slips in dreams in which you express strange or unacceptable thoughts or urges. These slips happen in everyday speech as well as in our dreams and, according to Freud, such slips can tell us something about our unconscious wishes. In real life, they may appear as verbal slips; in dreams, however, they can appear in images of the unexpected, embarrassing but secretly true feelings you may have. ... word game dream meaning
