Hero / Heroine, Dream Interpretation


The hero is the spiritual archetype who shows courage in adversity and determination in the carrying out of his duties. He was initially a defender or protector.

Psychological / emotional perspective: The hero sets out on his quest or journey knowing that he will undergo trials and tribulations that will have him mature from a youth to a man. In dreams, aspects of that process – such as the knight’s conflict with the dragon or the witch – will often appear.

The heroine or princess is the counterpart of the hero and has a similar journey to under go albeit in a somewhat more emotional way.

Material aspects: In today’s world a hero is considered to be anyone who is held up to public acclaim. This would suggest that it is the quality of determination that has become important and would, therefore, have him become an icon to others.

Gives gender - specific: In a woman’s dream a hero will largely appear as a protector and as an aspect of her animus. As she herself moves towards autonomy she will develop the qualities of bravery required by the heroine.

The princess will appear in a man’s dream as an aspect of his anima, whereas the hero will allow him to acknowledge his maturity.

A well-known desire for acceptance and validation, even if you are the hero or heroine yourself.

If you see a hero, it would indicate that you are hoping for help, but pettiness is involved. Adventuresome, craving for admiration, exaggerated and immature masculinity and femininity; but also vitality and the ability to succeed, similar to Hammer.

It may also mean the opposite—that you feel like a failure—or you must be in control of everything. Dreams about heroes belong usually to so-called “big dreams,” which take place in a person just prior to puberty, during midlife crisis, or before dying.

According to Jung, the hero is one of the important archetypes.

Dreams of a hero/heroine represent your higher self, your innate healing ability, and your mastery over any challenge you face. Perhaps you are exalting your natural genius to its fullest potential, going beyond the physical limitations of being human, and realizing that love can move mountains. This dream may be indicating your attachment to the role of rescuer or of needing to be rescued. Consider the feeling tone of this dream to discern the significance.

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The archetype of the hero has fascinated, taught, even ennobled human beings for thousands of years. Appears as Christ, Athena, Krishna, Mohammed, Mary, Ulysses, Su­perman, Florence Nightingale, a great game hunter, Hercules, or any film or TV hero such as Captain Kirk or Dr Who. We are the hero/ine of our own life. We brave great dangers, face monsters, pass through difficult initiations. Fundamental to the whole drama of the hero/ine is the evolution of our own identity from the depths of unconscious in the physical pro­cess of conception, through to developing self awareness as an adult. It is such an incredible journey, so heroic, so impossi­ble of achievement, so fraught with dangers and triumphs, that it is the greatest story in the world.

We find it told over and over symbolically in all the ‘holy’ books as the binh of the holy child; the journey of the hero/ ine; the creation of the world—our consciousness, the jour­neys of Moses. All penain to the difficulties and means we use to be; to the an of keeping balance amidst the multitude of forces acting on our human psyche.

The hero/ine is the one who dares, even though they feel afraid and in pain.

The avoidance of fear and pain in our society, where chemical anodynes or tranquillisers are sought to remove any tiny dis­comfort, is a great tragedy. Not that we need to become mas- ochists, but we miss our own wholeness through fear of our own power of experiencing. In other cultures the ability to meet pain and fear were considered spiritual strengths. They still are.

The following example shows one dreamer meeting his own fear and uncertainty. Example: 4I was in an ancient room. It had the feeling of being an old church. Then my wife and I were in bed in the room.

A middle aged woman was in the room. She was a ghost. I felt afraid of her, but to meet the fear I tried to confront her. I reached out my hand to her. I was crying out in my sleep from fear. As she took my hand I was amazed and shocked to feel it was physically real’ (see Christ within this entry, above). ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

If we are not the hero/ine of our own dream, we are probably still not accepting responsibility for our own drives, potentials and weaknesses.

The hero/ine frequently depicts our initiative and unexpressed potential. We might see our highest ideals as coming from an exterior figure such as Christ, and so miss touching the depths of our own being, avoid responsibility for our urges or actions. What happens to the hero/ine shows how one’s own creativity and expressed love fare. See Christ, hero/ine and the self under archetypes; religion and dreams. ...

Dream Explanations of Astro Center

A male superhero represents a super intellect; thus to dream of seeing Superman, Batman, Spiderman, or whoever indicates that your mind is particularly sharp right now, and if there is a project you’re working on that requires a quick, agile, and insightful intellect, this is the time to concentrate primarily on it. Female superheroes such as Wonder Woman or Supergirl indicate a heightened supportive mind - and thus the dreamer’s intuition is operating at a very high level. Therefore at this time the dreamer should definitely believe in his or her hunches and go with them - no matter what the intellect tells you.

If the dreamer encounters both male and female superheroes, then both faculties of his mind are especially sharp right now. Use your intellect, but when in doubt, follow your heart.

If the superhero or heroine is flying, or performing a rescue, then your mental and/or intuitive faculties will save you from an uncomfortable situation.... Dream Explanations of Astro Center
