DREAM DICTIONARY - Competition :

KEY WORDS : challenging yourself, deciding the best approach, maximise, others want the same things (Try to write down quotes which pinpoint a key feeling at the moment and which also use one of these key words)


Example dream : A contest in a dream linked to the dreamers thoughts about someone - he did not want to appear too dominant within a group. The contest represented his wish not to appear too dominant and competitive. (the king in the dreamm being the ultimate dominant figure). So we can see that the dreams precise meaning involves this theme of "dominance" and "competition" and the dream captures this exact thought "I do not want to appear to dominant and competitive and would rather come across as inclusive and democratic." The dream then was linked to how the dreamer liked to come across to someone he had just met and his thoughts about correcting this person over a minor mistake.
Example dream : A dream involving a life threatening game like Gladiator, was linked to the dreamers problems with her fianc├ęs mother, who was continually causing arguments. How can we connect this life threatening competition to real life? What associations can we make? A competition involves a winner and loser. In real life the arguments were very serious and her future mother in law would simply not accept defeat.

Example dream : A competition dream took place at a time when the dreamer had been thinking about his best approach to something. He was thinking over the best way to present ideas.
