corridor

Corridor, Dream Interpretation


Example: I’m trapped in a long passageway or corridor. I can’t get out. I’m feeling my way along the wall— there is a small light at the end of the tunnel, I can’t get to it. I’m very frightened. I wake up before I get to the end. Then I feel afraid to go back to sleep’ (Margaret).

The example may refer to the experience of birth in the birth canal. Such a corridor can also depict our sense of not being able to get out of an unsatisfactory situation. No man’s land; limbo; in-be- tween state; the process of going from one thing to another. See white under colour.

Dreams incorporating images of corridors are generally associated with change and shifting between places in our waking lives. These locations are not usually geographical but more attitudinal and / or emotional.

See buildings

To dream that you are walking through a long corridor indicates that you find yourself in a stagnant position. You can’t seem to break free from an uncomfortable routine. This corridor is the path you must follow in order to leave the past and move onto a new stage or new direction.

1- When we dream of being in a corridor we are usuallv in a state of transition; possibly moving from one state of mind to another, or perhaps between two states of being.

2- We may be in an unsatisfactory situation, but not be able to make decisions except to accept the inevitable.

3- We are in a state of spiritual limbo.

Example: 4I was standing in a hospital corridor looking through a glass partition. I could see a man having what I thought was a heart attack. Nurses and doctors came rushing to him and he was vomiting blood. I was on holiday in Canada at the time, staying in a hotel. I thought this dream was a bad omen and wouldn’t leave my bedroom for ages. But this was five years ago’ (Mrs F).

The woman in the example was having her hean (feelings) massively attacked by anxiety, so much so she is laid low (unable to go out of the room and lead a normal life). Many people have strong feelings of anxi­ety about any dream which shows them having an accident or being injured.

If we could have a record of every dream each person had, we would see that everyone dreams of being in­jured, murdered, killed, again and again. Because these are common themes, some dreams are going to coincide with an actual accident or plane crash. Many dreams in the files are attempts on the part of the dreamer to link the dream with a later event. But such dreams are about psychological injury or anxiety. General: anxiety, self punishment or introverted ag­gression.

An accident to someone else: could be hidden ag­gression. Idioms : accidentally on purpose; chapter of acci­dents. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Our current ‘self image’ is displayed by what we do in our dreams.

If we are the active and central character in our dreams, then we have a positive, confident image of our­self.

The role we place ourself in is also the one we feel at home with, or one which is habitual to us.

If we are con­stantly a victim in our dreams, we need to consider whether we are living such a role in everyday life. Dreams may help us look at our self image from a more detached viewpoint. We can look back on what we do in a dream more easily than we can on our everyday waking behaviour. This helps us under­stand our attitudes or stance, a very growth-promoting experi­ence. It is important to understand the viewpoint of the other dream characters also; although they depict secondary views, they enlarge us through acquaintance. See identity and dreams.

What we ourself are doing in our dreams is an expression of how we see ourselves at the time of the dream, our stance or attitude to life, or what could be generalised as our self image. It typifies what aspects of our nature we identify with most strongly.

Example: My husband and I are at some sort of social club.

The people there are ex-workmates of mine and I am having a wonderful time and am very popular. My husband is enjoying my enjoyment’ (quoted from article by the author in She magazine).

The dreamer describes herself as ‘a mature 41- year old’.

The dream, and her description of it, sum up her image of herself in just a few words. She sees herself as attrac­tive, sociable, liked, happily married. She is probably good looking and healthy. But the dream carries on. She and her husband ‘are travelling down a country lane in an open horse drawn carriage. It is very dark and is in the areas we used to live. We come to a hump-backed bridge, and as we amve at the brow of the bridge a voice says, “Fair lady, come to me.” My body is suddenly lying flat and starts to rise. I float and everything is black, warm and peaceful. Then great fear comes over me and I cry out my husband’s name over and over. I get colder and slip in and out of the blackness. I wake. Even with the light on I feel the presence of great evil. From a very positive sense of self, she has moved to a feeling which horri­fies her. How can such a confident, socially capable woman, one who has succeeded professionally as well as in her mar­riage, have such feelings? The answer probably lies in the statement of her age. At 41 she is facing the menopause and great physical change.

The image of herself she has lived with depended, or developed out of, having a firm sexually attrac­tive body, and being capable of having children. Losing what­ever it is that makes one sexually desirable must change the image others have of one, and that one has of oneself.

The hump of the bridge represents this peak of her life, from whence she will start to go downhill towards death, certainly towards retirement. So she is facing midlife crisis in which a new image of herself will need to be forged.

To define what self image is portrayed in your dreams, consider just what situation you have created for yourself in the dream, and what environment and people you are with. Example: I am a shy 16 year old and am worried about my dream. In it I am walking along the school’s main corridor. I try to cover myself with my hands as a few pei pie go by, not noticing me. Then a group of boys pass, pointing and laugh­ing at me—one boy I used to fancy.

A teacher then gives me clothes. They are too big but I wear them because I have nothing else’ (HM). Adolescence is a time of great change anyway, when a lot is developing as far as self image is con­cerned. Her nakedness shows how vulnerable she feels, and how she has a fear that other people must be able to see her developing sexuality and womanhood. It is new to her and still embarrassing, particularly with boys she feels something for. She tries to cover up her feelings, and uses attitudes she has learnt from parents and teachers, but these are not suit­able. So we might summarise by saying that the situation she places herself in within the dream shows her present uncer­tainty and sense of needing clothes—attitudes or confidence —of her own.

Public or dance hall: how you relate to groups or the public; meeting sexuality, a place of initiation, maturing be­yond old habits, ways of life and views—perhaps because civic ceremonies such as marriage, trials, social rewards, take place in hall-like environments.

Hallway: the way one meets other people or allows them into one’s life or intimacy, the receptive female reproductive function, connecting link with aspects of oneself. Example: ‘I find myself in the entrance hall of a very large house.

The hall is very large with curved staircases at either side meeting at the top to form a balcony. There is nobody about and I am frightened. I stan to walk up the stairs but then find myself hiding in the roof with very little space above my body’ (Mrs B).

The hall is probably Mrs B’s childbearing ability and her image of herself as a woman.

The words ‘little space above my body’ suggest her main area of life has always been her childbearing function or physical attractiveness as a woman, and she had not developed her mental self. See also corridor; white under colour. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Example: A shadow thing came very quickly up the stairs, along our corridor and into the bed­room, over to the bed to bend over me. I felt fear as I never felt it before and I started to make a noise. It was also the shadow making the noise and it was frightened, and moved towards the window. I felt sorry it was frightened too, but then it was too late as it had gone. I woke up making a howling noise, my husband said, he felt the fear in the room strongly too’ (Gloria F). In the example, Gloria is meeting her own feeling of fear. This is obvious because the shadowy thing felt the fear also. In fact it is the feeling of fear. Such shadowy figures are our own rejected emotions or potentials. See the Shadow under archetypes. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Awareness; clearness of mind; purity; cleanness; light feelings. In cenain dreams white is very threatening; perhaps we have connections with hospitals in these dreams.
