The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

If you are playing a violin well in your dream, or hear violin music, this could suggest that you are expressing your creativity with skill.

If you aren’t playing well, or the music sounds discordant, this could suggest the opposite. Violins can also represent sexual intercourse or even masturbation. Be aware of the term, ‘get the violins out’, as your dream may be suggesting that you are trying to get unnecessary sympathy. It could also relate to ‘fiddle’ as another word for violin. Are you ‘fiddling about’ and doing nothing constructive? Are you playing ‘second fiddle’ and feeling second best in waking life?

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams

Music / Musical Instrument

Hearing music in your dreams generally has positive connotations. Music is a healing balm to the soul, and as you are listening to it in your dream, you may be connected to the wonderful, creative spirit or flow of life, suggesting a degree of inner harmony and emotional expression. Music in waking life is one of the most powerful and expressive mediums available and through music it is possible to convey feelings that are impossible to put into words. It is much the same in your dreams, where a beautiful melody can express your sense of feeling sweet, peaceful and harmonious, whereas a clash of harsh notes may reflect emotional discord or feeling out of tune with the people in your life. The type of music that features in your dreams may have significance, especially if it was music you do not usually listen to in waking life. For example, if you love classical music but dreamt of a pop song, your unconscious may have retrieved the song from your memory because it portrays perfectly how you are feeling at present. If you dreamed of classical music but are a modern music fan, this may be a reference to old-fashioned tastes and values with which you feel in tune. The dream may also be urging you to listen a little more to the advice of older people. If you dreamed of choosing a song on a juke box, the song you chose may express how you are currently feeling. Dream drum rolls may be urging you to pay attention to someone or keep in step and conform to others in waking life. According to Freud, a martial or rhythmical drum beat could suggest intercourse but another interpretation suggests that it could symbolize the voice of your unconscious or unspoken feelings that arise from the depths of your inner self. If you were listening passively to music in your dream, this may be referring to your emotional reaction to a waking situation, but if you were actively making music, humming along or tapping the rhythm, this may be about your emotional involvement with someone or something. Dreams about music may also be urging you to explore your perhaps neglected potential for personal creativity, of which music is a common symbol. If you were playing an instrument, the choice of instrument will also be significant. If you were playing drums, are you trying to drum up support for something or someone, or did the dream suggest that something needs to be drummed into your head? If you clashed a pair of cymbals, this might suggest a clash of conflicting opinions, whilst blowing a trumpet may suggest bragging or your feelings of triumph. The black and white symbolism of piano keys could indicate the need to see things clearly, in black and white, or to harmonize extreme opinions. Don’t forget the sexual symbolism of musical instruments too. Freudians would, for example, regard a flute as a phallic symbol and the curved bodies of violins or guitars as a feminine symbol. Finally, dreams of playing instruments may simply be encouraging you to nurture a real-life talent for music. See also ARTS AND CRAFTS. ... music / musical instrument dream meaning

Famous Dreams

Through the centuries, the dreaming mind has been credited with being the source of ideas, insights, revelations and guidance, some of which have changed the course of history. Here are just a few well- known examples: Julius Caesar’s decision to cross the Rubicon is attributed to a dream in which he saw himself in bed with his mother (Mother Rome, the seers told him). His assassination was foretold in his wife’s Calpurnia’s dream. ‘She held him in her arms, bleeding and stabbed. ’ Another Caesar, Caesar Augustus, is said to have walked the streets as a beggar because of instructions he received in a dream. St Francis of Assisi founded the Franciscan Order because of a dream in which Jesus Christ spoke from the cross, telling him to ‘go set my house in order’. Dante relates that the whole story of The Divine Comedy was revealed to him in a dream on Good Friday in 1300. When he died in 1321, part of the manuscript was lost. His son Jocojso found the manuscript after a dream in which his father showed him where to look. Genghis Khan is reported to have received his battle plans from his dreams. He is also reported to have been told in a dream that he was a chosen one. Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous poem, ‘Kubla Khan’, was written upon awakening from an opium-affected dream. Robert Louis Stephenson believed that his best stories came from his dreams. He reported that the theme for Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was derived from a dream. He also reported other breakthroughs in his writing that came from his dreams. He suffered as a child from nightmares and learned to control his dreams to change the nightmares. He said he used his dreams to revise plays and stories while asleep. Abraham Lincoln dreamt, days before his assassination, of great cries coming from the East Wing of the White House. When he investigated, he was told by soldiers on guard that they weeping for the president who had been assassinated. Days later, his body was held in state in the East Wing so people could pay their last respects. Friedrich August Kekulé von Stradonitz was a chemist working on the chemical structure of benzene. He reported that he got fed up with his data, which made no sense interpreted as a ‘long string’ molecule. He was dozing in his comfy chair when he was startled by the image of a snake biting its own tail. He woke and worked out the mathematics of the benzene molecule as a ring rather than a long string. Guiseppe Tartini (Italian violinist and composer) composed one of his greatest works, ‘The Devil’s Trill’, as a result of a dream he had in 1713. In the dream, he handed his violin to the devil himself, who began to ‘play with consummate skill a sonata of such exquisite beauty as surpassed the boldest flights of my imagination. I felt enraptured, transported, enchanted; my breath was taken away, and I awoke. Seizing my violin I tried to retain the sounds I had heard. But it was in vain. The piece I then composed. . . was the best I ever wrote, but how far below the one I heard in my dream!’ Elias Howe, the inventor of the sewing machine, wrote that he got the core idea, the breakthrough concept, from a dream. It was a nightmare. He had been captured by cannibals. They were preparing to cook him and they were dancing around the fire waving their spears. Howe noticed at the head of each spear there was a small hole through the shaft, and the up and down motion of the spears and the hole remained with him when he woke. The idea of passing the thread through the needle close to the point, not at the other end, was a major innovation in making mechanical sewing possible. Niels Bohr reported that he developed the model of the atom based on a dream of sitting on the sun with all the planets hissing around on tiny cords. Paul McCartney heard a haunting melody in one of his dreams, confirmed that none of the Beatles had heard it before, and wrote it down. It became the tune for the famous song, ‘Yesterday’. ... famous dreams dream meaning
