Dream Symbols and Analysis

Calamari in a dream heralds an event of a significant nature, perhaps a celebration.

To dream of simple unbuttered calamari, garnished with a slice of lemon shows an ease and grace in relation to the news. Dreaming of battered calamari with a selection of dips indicates confusion around an event and decisions to be made. Dreams of calamari or squid swimming in the sea may indicate many choices and the intelligence to choose appropriately. Dreaming of live calamari may indicate the ability to juggle many things at once thus opening up broader opportunity for success.... Dream Symbols and Analysis

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Example: I am packing for a holiday, surrounded by a lovely selection of all sorts of clothes. I am matching outfits, shoes, scarves, handbags. It gives me great pleasure. I am wearing an old navy blue dress which is too shon for me. So shon I feel panic because there will not be enough time to change. I am now on the top deck of a bus. I have one bat­tered suitcase and am wearing the same dress, trying vainly to pull it down over my knees. Suitcase bursts open and it is full of old clothes fit for a jumble sale* (Valerie H). Clothes can mean many things, depending upon dream context. In the example the clothes are feelings of pleasure and confidence, and also discomfort and lack of confidence.

In general they indicate the stance or attitudes we use to meet other people or special situations such as work or dan­ger, protection, such as might be given by our feelings of reserve, shyness, anxiety or aggressiveness in fending off sex­ual or other advances, clothes depict self respect and how we see ourselves in society—the difference between what we want and what we feel others want of us; our clothes, espe­cially when we consider their colour, can also express our emotional condition and moods. Constance Newland gives the example of dressing in violet symbolising being inviolate sexually. Overdressed , unable to get clothes off: too cautious in relationships, difficulty in changing attitudes or self image; self protectiveness; avoiding intimacy.

Naked or see-through clothes: example: ‘I am at the doc­tor’s being examined. It is always the same. I have all my clothes off and he examines me from the roots of my hair down to my toenails. I am just at the point where I am going to ask him for his diagnosis when he fades away’ (Miss L). Desire to be attractive and noticed, as in the example, where Miss L is enjoying an acceptable form of intimacy; being open about what you really feel; fear of other people seeing what you really feel, think and desire; anxiety about not being ade­quate socially, lacking ability to conform to social norm. See nude. Ragged or inappropriate clothes: feelings of inadequacy depressed feelings; rebellion against authority or society. Ar­mour, protective clothing : defences against internal anxieties, past hurts and external intimacy. Other people’s clothes: the social attitudes and responses we have adopted from others. Children’s, teenage clothes in adult’s dream: youthful or im­mature attitudes or behaviour. Undressing: revealing one’s real character; move towards intimacy. Dirty, untidy clothes: difficult or grubby feelings; one’s inner condition, such as an untidy mind, or grubby feeling values. Worn out or old clothes: attitudes ready to be left behind; old habits no longer useful; feeling worn out, old or tired. Tight clothes: being too restricted in attitude; being tight emotionally. New clothes: change in attitudes; new feeling about self. Someone else’s clothes: could be feelings from that person; their attitudes, memories. Man in woman’s clothes: unacceptability of male role, with its connection with breadwinning, aggression, being cannon fodder in war, homosexual tendency; desire for mother. Woman in male clothes: unacceptability of female role, motherhood, housewife; lesbian tendency; desire for fa­ther figure. Clothing inappropnate to dream surroundings: at­titudes or behaviour inappropriate to one’s situation. Chang­ing clothes: altering one’s mode of behaviour, role or mood. Idioms: dress to kill; dress up. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The Language of Dreams

(see by specific instruments)

Inner harmony, or the song of your soul as it mingles with the Universe. Pythagoras believed that celestial objects sing as they move throughout the sky. When you learn that music, as well as your own keynote within the strain, it naturally engenders actualization and awareness.

The universal language that expresses your emotions to those who will listen. In this case, you are likely revealing hidden feelings to yourself.

Discordant: Being in an ill-advised relationship or situation that isn’t healthy spiritually, physically, or mentally.

Note the selection of music, where it is played, the quality, and represented instruments. Each of these facets will add greater dimension to your dream’s interpretation.

For example, a mournful opera carries far different emotions from celebratory songs, or religious canticles. So if you dreamt of a church song being performed badly, this could reveal that your spiritual life has somehow gotten “out of tune” and needs vour attention.... The Language of Dreams
