countryside

Countryside, Dream Interpretation


One’s natural feelings; a relaxed state; the forces of ‘nature’ in us; our moods—a rainy countryside would be a more introverted mood than a lively sunny scene. Country lanes: meeting what is natural in us—this may dis­turb the dreamer, perhaps being in the form of a wolf or animal. See lane; landscapes; farmer under roles; settings.

Example: My lover and I were going to try and make love, both with our own hurts and being aware of each other s difficulties. We were both very gentle with each other.

A young girl came in under the bedclothes with us. I thought it would interfere, but I could see it wasn’t worrying her. She was playing hide and seek. We were in bed out in the open countryside’ (Hilary). Whether the young person is your own child, someone you know, or a stranger, it is usually an ex­pression of oneself at that age.

The dream above shows Hilary taking her teenage feelings into her lovemaking. This is be­cause Hilary had no chance during those years to mature sex­ually, so, as an older woman, she now finds herself meeting a young girl’s feelings with her lover.

If dreamt by a child, the adolescent depicts their feelings or assessment of their own future, or ways of meeting future relationships. See boy; girl; woman; man. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The Language of Dreams

(see Alley, Comer, Dead End, Highway)

Spiritual directions and focus. Taoism, for example, translated from the Chinese, means “the way” or “path.” Buddhism teaches the eightfold path to enlightenment. Christ spoke of the path of righteousness.

A guideline, edict, or idea that you are following now, or plan to follow in the future. Paths have defined borders that set them apart from the accompanying countryside, showing the way to go.

A sign of fahy mischief or presence. In European and rural American folklore, bright green lines of grass were called fairy paths, and believed to be created by the passage of these elemental beings.

Meandering: Varying from your destiny or taking temporary detours away from a previously specified goal.

Divergent: A decision must be made, but both options appear equal. See if your dream reveals something about this choice that you have not seen yet, such as one path exhibiting weeds that might entangle you.

Well-worn: Either being in a rut, or staying so constrained to one way of thinking and living that the same old routes get walked again and again.

Straight: Staying true to your ideals, lifestyle, and / or goals.... The Language of Dreams

When the environment or setting of a dream is particularly noticeable there is usually some kind of message or information being given. Sometimes the place reflects our inner state of mind or mood. It can be a reminder of a particular place which had meaning at a specific time in the dreamer’s life, and sometimes a reminder of particular people.

Interpreting the symbolism of certain places gives us an insight into our own ‘inner landscape’.

A place which becomes fertile or lighter in the course of the dream indicates that an aspect that the dreamer has not previously appreciated - or has found unpleasant - is now developing possibilities and potentials, possibly for spiritual development. Dreary, unfriendly places, or tranquil favourable landscapes may well refer to the dreamer’s subjective view of the world.

The country where the dream takes place may have certain resonances for the dreamer.

For example; America for most people will signify a rather brash, commercially oriented culture, England tends to be seen as inhibited and dutiful, while France will represent the temperamental masculine, and so on. Countryside The countryside can suggest a particular mood or feeling, especially of freedom. Composite scenes consisting of many images recognisable to the dreamer are usually drawing attention to particular qualities, ideals and moods which all enhance the information content of the dream, may have particular associations for the dreamer, or have been included because of frequently encountered associations.

The dreamer’s birthplace represents a secure space.

A bright and sunny place suggests fun and liveliness, whereas a dark, shadowy, murky scene signifies despondency and gloom. Darkened places can represent the unconscious.

A familiar place will often take us back to childhood or a time of learning and a particularly beautiful place may allow us to fantasise so that we can make more use of creative visualisation. Jungles connect with the labyrinth and ways of understanding our sexuality.

A placc which feels oppressive has been a sanctuary, but is no longer.

A sheltered place offers pcace and security. Unknown places indicate aspects of ourselves of which we are not aware. This can lead to a place that seems familiar and yet we do not know which signifies a situation we arc continually re-running in our lives. Wide-open spaces offer us freedom of movement.

An unfamiliar place will signify new aspects of the personality which have not yet become fully conscious.

1- Straw in dreams highlights weakness and emptiness. Unless the image of straw appears in a countryside scene, we arc probably aware of a passing phase which has little meaning.

A straw house being a temporary structure would suggest a state of impermanence is present in our lives.

2- When we say something is built on straw, we are aware that it does not have a proper foundation. We need to look at what we feel is impermanent in our lives and build on it.

3- Straw appearing in a dream can often reveal that we feel there is a lack of support or that the support we do have seems to be rather dry and brittle when undertaking our Spiritual journey.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Any dream in which an obvious change occurs in one of the dream figures shows transformation. Each of us go through major transformations during growth— not just physically, as when we change from a toothless baby to a walking, toothy child, but also psychologically.

Example: ‘On a hot summer day I was walking with a beautiful black woman through countryside. She stopped and told me she had a problem.

To show me she pulled down the strap of her dress. On her shoulder the black skin was peeling to reveal golden white skin underneath. She said that if she kept seeing me she would become completely white. She was going to ask advice from her mother about what to do. As we walked on two black men fought with me. They wanted to take her back to the village. I woke feeling I was winning’ (paraphrased from The Way of The Dream, Fraser Boa). Here the dreamer is relating well to his own feelings of sexuality and sensuality. However, he is beginning to see a female part­ner as a real person, not just as his sexuality paints her. Also, the reference to seeking advice from the mother suggests his ability to love is still not freed from emotional and erotic connections with his mother, and needs transforming. One often hears people, even in their 40s, saying It is difficult (developing a relationship) with that person because my mother doesn’t like them.’ The dreamer ‘fights’ the opposing drives, which want to take the man’s love back to the village, his childhood level of love—thus he moves towards becoming independent in love and life.

The transformation is towards mature love and relatedness.

A vehicle is one of the symbols most commonly found in our dreams, since it literally takes us to new realms and dimensions.

• Dented vehicle: Going out and finding that your vehicle has been dented may come as a response to an event that “dented” your self-esteem. It could come after a personal insult that caused you to feel degraded.

A huge dent may have even damaged your reputation.

• Recreational vehicle: On the open road, this vehicle may represent an early retirement from work. It may signify a desire to travel and see the countryside. It points to a leisurely lifestyle and thus may mention “Take your time and enjoy a little scenery.”... Ariadne's Book of Dream
