Night Dream Interpretation

Example: Three of us were on our way to a lively night out and I suggested a short cut through Richmond Park’ (Jasmine C). In Jasmine’s dream the night depicts her feelings of relaxation, pleasure and sexual encounter. This aspect of night also suggests feeling the absence of the workaday world; time for reflection and being by oneself; intimacy with others; introspection.

Example: ‘It was a very dark night with thunder and light­ning, heavy rain and high winds. I am in a waiting room at Heathrow airport’ (Mrs W). Night in this dream shows a pe­riod of difficult change in the dreamer’s life. It represents a period of darkness or depression, loneliness; difficulties; sometimes negative feelings about old age and death.

Example: ‘I was creeping through a field at night. In dark­ness I and others were trying to accomplish some secret act, rather as spies or underground agents might. I also remember another where I was near a house at night. There was some special reason for getting to the house. Again an “agent” son of feeling’ (Sam K). Sam is experiencing areas of his uncon­scious or unknown self, thus the secrecy, as he probably has hidden something from himself. This aspect of night suggests turning our attention inwards to an extent where we discover insights, memories or mysteries which were previously un­known to us. These can be painful areas of our experience, or very positive and life enhancing realisations. It depicts the times in life when feelings arise from within when we are alone, or in a receptive mood—or go in search of who we are.

Idioms: it’s about time; all in good lime; at one time; do time, for the time being; half the time, gain time, have no time for someone; lean times; time after time, time flies; behind the times; big time.

See dark; light; sun.

1- Night signifies a period of rest and relaxation. It can, however, also suggest a time of chaos and difficulty.

It is a time for ‘ghosties, ghoulics and things that go bump in the night. More positively, it is a period which allows us to create a new beginning with the dawning of the new day. Used constructively, night is therefore the fallow period before fresh growth.

2- Physiologically night is a time when the body is supposed to be renewing itself. In Chinese medicine, certain hours of the night correspond with the renewal of certain organs in the body. Madness would eventually ensue if the body were not able to repair itself properly (see Sleep Deprivation in Introduction).

3- Night symbolises the darkness that occurs before rebirth or initiation. There is a disintegration which has to occur before there can be enlightenment. Night can also signify death or drastic change.

Night Dream Interpretation

According to the Greeks, the night was the mother of the gods because they believed that the darkness preceded the formation of all things. As a result, like water, the night also has a meaning of fertility, of seed. In our culture, tradition has linked night with the unconscious. Moreover, it is also often linked to the color black, death, ignorance, evil, and despair. To dream about it thus portends misleading, artificial, unclear, and sordid situations, especially as related to economic and sentimental matters. As with death, the night may say that something is coming to an end, or that some limitations will emerge that you should follow.

An old superstition says that you can avoid nightmares by hanging your

stockings or socks on the edge of the bed. According to gypsy tradition, unless the sky is starry, night dream announces despair.
