EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A defeated army retreating in a cold was linked to the dreamer working the day before in the terrible cold for a long time. The conditions were too much to endure. It had already been a long and hard winter and it was now getting worse. The army being defeated symbolised the terrible conditions which had overcome the dreamer - the cold and snow had got to him. (Symbolism - the dreamer had been "defeated" by the wheather the day before) The dreamer simply tried to think of ways in which he might use the word "defeated" to describe his feelings.
Example dream : Defeat in a dream linked to the dreamer who was feeling frozen out by a group of friends. He felt sulky and was beginning to accept he had lost these friends. He felt defeated and disappointed as this was a real loss. Feeling "defeated" is a strong emotion linked to feelings like "I am utterly devastated" and "I simply cannot do anything to reverse this." Think of ways in which these associated feelings describe your emotions.
