Doll, Dream Interpretation

Example: ‘She continues to attack him and, to my horror and feeling of helplessness, his head comes off. But the neck is made of some son of material with a string hanging off it, and I realise it is a doll’s head* (Mr RH). Many ‘doll’ dreams are, as the example, using the doll as a target for violence. This may refer to how the dreamer felt as a child when smacked or attacked emotionally—like a helpless doll. Also, in general, childhood states of feeling about ourself, a means of displacement for anger or feelings the dreamer would like to discharge on another, a feeling of wanting to be a precious ‘doll’ to someone, wanting to be loved. See also toy.

A doll as an outstanding symbol in a dream may be offered to stimulate a childhood memory about the style of mothering you received. It may comment that a woman is a doll, as in very attractive. It also may denote fragility.

Dolls in dreams are lifeless images of real people. They are suggestive of a person that is not genuine and does not express her feelings. Most dreams are about our personal issues and concerns and not about others. Therefore, think about yourself and try to see if you have been behaving in such ways that have been less than “real.” Dolls as a dream symbol may represent the way you relate and interact with your internal and external environments.

If feelings of detachment and phoniness prevail in your daily life, then they may be reflected in this dream.
