infection

Ideas or thoughts which cause irritability or nega­tive internal states. Thinking one’s job is not secure might create disinterest and loss 6f motivation in work, even if in reality the job is secure; taking in negative attitudes from oth­ers; warning about physical health; sexual impregnation. See illness; body.

In spiritual development, and particularly when dealing with outside influences, we can become contaminated – or infected – by ideology and spurious beliefs. We need to be aware of the possibility that we can be ‘taken over’ by wrong thought and negativity.

Psychological / emotional perspective: When we are made uncomfortable by external circumstances in waking life, this may appear as an infection in a dream.

Material aspects: Dreaming of having an infection suggests that there is the possibility of us having internalized negative attitudes from other people. Depending on where in the body the infection appears, there is information as to the type of ‘infection’.

For example, an infection in the leg may indicate that we feel we are being prevented from moving forward quickly enough in waking life. Consult the entries for injure / injury and wound for further information.

To dream that you have an infection represents minor problems and annoyances.

1. Nagging or persistent problem.

2. Fear of problem or situation growing worse.

Dreams of an infection represent that the negative thoughts you have been indulging in are beginning to fester. This dream is showing you the power of your mind and thoughts. Because you were able to manifest an expression of your fears, consider what you could manifest or create when you are focused on that which brings you joy. Keep in mind, that where attention goes, energy flows and results show. See Disease.

Example: ‘Was looking at my knuckle and saw that I had a nasty boil which had come away as I did the washing up and all that was left was a big hole, pink and healthy looking skin around. It felt very close to my knuckle bone. (My lover had told me he was leaving me for good, and going back to his children. That evening, I cried most of the night.)’ (Hilary K). In Hilary’s case the abscess has released its pus, or painful feelings, perhaps through her prolonged crying. Ab­scess still swollen and unrelieved: emotions still repressed and may be causing psychological infection, influencing views and decisions negatively.

The emotions are, with Hilary, af­fecting her grasp’. She also uses other imaged word play in ‘near the knuckle’. Washed up shows her clearing away the influence of her ‘evening meal’ of experience.

The dream ab­scess may also represent a site of physical illness which may or may not be obvious while awake. See individuation. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Blue always has something to do with intellectual or spiritual events, insights, experiences, and mental processes. It is the opposite of the emotional red, because it is “cool” and “analytical.” A soft, gentle blue is typically a female color. Blue is a symbol of the emodonal calm and contentment that we all would like to attain. It indicates that you live wisely and with compassion. Blue stands for intellectual goals and insight, faith, and spiritual maturity.

Color Therapy: Blue has antiseptic, cooling, and constricting qualities. It supports healing in case of hyperthyroidism, sore throat, inflammation, fever, ear infection, mental exhaustion, nervousness, high blood pressure, and anxiety.

Depth Psychology: The color of “faraway places” and of infinity, blue is a symbol of faith, longing, and relaxation—but also of turning within, back to the true self, back to the “I.”... Dreamers Dictionary

It refers to oneself, as in the word sorcxehxty. Al­though it includes the totality of our expenence, it seems to be most pointedly referring to our sense of identity. From this sense of ourself we project meaning on to the rest of the world in some degree. Thus many symbols are stylised body forms.

The cross is a standing figure with arms outstretched, a church’s structure a representation of the body, and the mira­cle of sexual reproduction—the mystery enacted within it; a maypole, the penis. Therefore various things can represent our body or aspects of ourself. Seeds, swallowed teeth can be sperm, anything long and pointed, even a linger, can be the penis; anything hairy, a male; anything receptive like a bottle, bowl or cave, a woman or vagina.

A body, or our body, also represents physical life; material existence; the process which causes growth and aging. This includes all the processes of nature in us.

A dead body: our skin or shape is felt as our boundary, the edge of our universe.

The dead body depicts a whole set of personality traits or attitudes, very often potentials, which have been denied life by us. We have not allowed them expression.

A person hun in love might kill out any feelings towards the opposite sex. This ‘dead pan of them can be shown as a body. May also be the way we meet feelings about death. Sickness in body: can refer to an awareness of illness in pan of body shown. Most often depicts psychological problem symbolised by pan of body— see body pans below. Maggots in body: possible need to cleanse body of toxins or infection, sense of dis-ease emotion­ally in that area of self. Iniunes: huns or events that may lead to emotional scars—see body areas below. See dead people dreams; hiding.

Bodiless: Example: lI felt as if I was going very deep inside myself. It was dark but at first there were noises of the world around me. I seemed to go in much deeper and it was very dark, but with the feeling of great space. Everything was all right until I didn’t hear any noise at all, all that space and no noise was too much and my whole body freaked out and then pulled out very fast before I could stop it’ (Kate P).

The ‘noises’ around us, sensory impressions, other people s ex­pressed feelings and actions, are building bricks for our sense of self. In a real sense we create each other by believing in each other. With prolonged absence of other people and events, and especially if we lose our noises’ and body aware­ness, we feel we—our sense of identity—is dying. Bodiless- ness may therefore show us feeling unrecognised, unnoticed. May also be feelings of loneliness; being cut off from sexuality and body drives. In its positive side it is exploration of the unconscious and void. See identity and dreams.

If you are right handed, the left of the body: represents inner feelings which support outer action, such as confidence, our less used or supportive functions.

If we are an intellectual, the left might depict one’s feelings, and vice versa.

The left may represent our mother’s influence in our life and body.

The right of the body: our outer activity and dominant func­tions; expressed abilities; our father’s influence in life and body.

If father is an anxious man there might be a lot more signs of stress on this side of the body. Top half of body: thinking, feeling. Bottom half: sexuality and instincts. Half a body: if top missing, lack of thinking and higher emotion; if bottom, trauma to, loss or denial of, sexuality and sensuality. Old head on baby body: immature sexuality and emotions; vice versa: immature personality. Dismembered body: emo­tional or mental stress and breakdown; may be followed by emergence of new self.

The areas of our body are sometimes thought of as sense organs. This may seem strange but is very simple. Without language, communication would be difficult. So language en­ables us to sense what another being is communicating.

If we had been castrated or had a hysterectomy prior to adoles­cence, we would never develop sexually. Without that devel­opment we would not understand two kissing people; or what a mother was feeling when she held her baby. Out of the sex drive develops a whole world of feelings and tenderness which enables us to understand many things we see in the world. It is therefore important when reading the particular de­scriptions below to remember that each psychological area of our body gives us some insight into ourself and life around us, which is missing if the area is injured or traumatised. ...

First off you must explore the feeling you get from the particular color being show to you.Have you preconceived thoughts on certain colors?You have to take this into account.If you hate the color red, say because you had an accident while wearing that color and thereby associate red with accidents, you most likely will not be shown red in a positive dream unless you are being shown to consider red as a more positive color, at least some of the time.So a dream with the color red and a positive feeling about the dream is very important.It is telling you that red can be a positive color for you. Most people dream in colors, but at times some stand out more than others. Colors are symbolic and their symbolism is part of culture. We communicate with color and relate ideas with them.

For example, a bride wears white and black is worn at funerals. Colors also represent energy.

The meaning that you give to the colors in your dreams depends on the meaning that you give to those colors in daily life.

Psychically, insects can appear in dreams as some kind of threat. This is one reason why they are often used in psychological thrillers and science fiction. Some form of spiritual ‘infection’ may have taken place. Fleas are symbolic of the type of disruption that is likely to hurt, rather than destroy, such as gossip.

A mantis represents deviousness, particularly of a spiritual kind. It is that trickster part of us that can create problems when things are effectively working out for us; it is that aspect of our personality which perhaps preys on the other parts and will not take its place within our overall integration.

Leeches are parasites that drain your energy and your resources. They are literally “blood suckers” and what they represent from your life is up to you to determine. Think about all of the draining things around you or inside of you. Usually dreams are designed to make us more aware of ourselves. Thus, the leeches may represent your own habits, thoughts, and negative emotions rather than someone in your environment. In the old days (and maybe in some remote parts of the world this is still happening) leeches were used for medical purposes. They were harvested and used in case of infection or other physical condition where by poisonous or harmful substance needed to be removed form the body. Maybe the leeches in your dream are there to suck out all of the negativity that you acquire throughout your day or in a particular situation.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Islamic Dream Interpretation

(Cellar) In a dream, one’s mouth represents his life from inception to completion. One’s mouth in a dream also represents the course of one’s livelihood and the source of his strength. Putting medicine in one’s mouth in a dream means correcting one’s life for the better.

If one puts food in his mouth in a dream, it means worldly gains and profits, unless one puts something that tastes bad, or which is spoiled, then it means losses, distress and depression. Putting good and tasty food or sweets in one’s mouth in a dream means living a happy and a rich life.

If one’s mouth is buckled in a dream, it means death, sickness, dumbness, silence, helplessness, or defeat. Ifone’s mouth looks larger than usual in the dream, it denotes growth and greater benefits, but if one’s mouth looks smaller in the dream, then it means the opposite.

If one’s mouth smells good in the dream, it means speaking good words. Infection of one’s mouth in a dream means a disaster or business losses.

If something nice comes out of one’s mouth in a dream, it means kindness toward others. Ifone sees his mouth sealed in a dream and did not know who did it, it means a scandal or defamation. In a dream, one’s mouth is interpreted in seven ways : It could mean knowledge, a coffer, a cellar, a bookcase, a market, a doorman, a minister, or a door.

If a pious person sees a harness around his mouth in a dream, it means fasting from food.

If an impious person sees that, it means rebuke and reprimand. (Also see Body’)... Islamic Dream Interpretation

Our name represents our sense of self, our essential T.

If name is altered: suggests a sense of change in the way we see ourself. Other people’s names: our feelings for that person; the quality we feel in regard to some­one else with the same name, or wordplay or associations with the name.

A woman dreamt a friend asks her ‘Do you know where Chris is?*; she replied he was on the back seat. On waking she realises she is being asked ‘Where’s the cri­sis?’ Two weeks later she had a kidney infection—in the back seat. Names also suggest qualities, as in Peter, the rock; or one’s friend Pat may be pleasure loving, so we use the name or person to represent that quality. See wordplay, puns.

Place names: these can represent our feelings about the place, or be similar to personal names in their suggestion of something. Example: ‘On the other side of the road was a window with my wife’s ring and watch and other trinkets. I went to pick them up but a stranger put his hand over them. I then crossed the road to get a bus to Andover’ (Arthur P). Arthur’s dream wants to make sure he gets the message by saying hand-over and Andover.

Idioms: call someone names; clear someone’s name; have a bad name; not a thing to one’s name; in name alone; in the name of; make a name for oneself; name dropper, one’s mid­dle name, name is mud; somebody who shall be nameless; or my name’s not . . . ; worthy of the name; name in vain; lend one’s name to; name the day. ...

Vision: Looking at a swollen neck: good chances for a win and business success. Looking at a long, thin neck: misfortunes are spoiling your fun.

An injured neck or cut-off neck is a warning about dangers ahead. Wearing a shawl around the neck also is a warning—about possible throat, nose, and ear infections.

Depth Psychology: The neck stands for the connection between the head and the body (from the intellect to the material). Looking at a neck is often a warning: “Don’t risk your neck.” Sometimes it suggests taking care of all three—mind, body, and spirit. Do you sometimes feel “strangled” by others or by the demands of life? Are you “out of breath”? What is sticking in your throat?... Dreamers Dictionary

1- For most people the way they see themselves is important.

To be overly conscious of something like a pimple in a dream is to suggest some worry as to how one comes across to others.

A pimple can also represent some kind of blemish in our characters which at some time or another will have to be dealt with.

2- Since a pimple usually suggests the body’s inability to throw off toxins, such a symbol in dreams indicates our inability to throw off infection or negativity. It has only come partly to the surface of our consciousness.

1- An infection (See Infection) can result in pus. In a dream, something which has gone ‘bad’ and infected what is around it, can show itself as pus. We may be infected by fears, self- doubts and even jealousy. We are being shown that a negative situation in our lives can result in pain and difficulty if it is not dealt with correctly.

2- If we are having to deal with pus, we may have to deal with an external negative.

If someone else is dealing with pus in us, then the negativity is internal and we need to learn how to heal ourselves.

Red is an active, affective color, full of passion and emotion. It is also the color of blood and fire.

A softer red is also a symbol of love, as well as mercy, brotherly love, and compassion. When intense, red can also indicate hate.

If red flashes through our dreams, our soul is ready for action; it indicates either admiration or suffering.

A “passionately” red dress we put on in a dream is a sign of strong sexual desire. But red can also mean sin, rage, and the devil. Dark red is a symbol of passion, greed, energy, and anger. Light red stands for warmth and affection.

Color Therapy: Red is a good color to use in cases of depression, lack of energy, bladder infection, pale skin, anemia, circulatory problems, impotence, and frigidity.

If the thorn draws blood, we need to look at what is happening in our lives which could make us vulnerable. In a woman’s dream this could represent the sexual act, or rather, fear of intercourse.

2- The thorn stands for physical suffering in dreams. In matters of health, it may indicate a vulnerability to infection.
