DREAM DICTIONARY - History :History maybe a symbol for your own life and achievements. You maybe in a highly reflective mood and looking back at what happened and why? You maybe taking a long and hard look at what has happened. You maybe concentrating on ways in which you made errors. Have you been thinking about what you have achieved in life (your place in 'history').
Of course we all have a different version of history. History is written by the winners! Have you been thinking about your own past - maybe in relationship towards someone or somewhere? Does your version of what happened differ from others version?
Of course if you have been thinking about history (reading books or watching historical programs on TV) then the dream could link to some thoughts that have been generating in your mind about history. Have you been especially inspired? Have you watched something that brought to life history? Has some historical account appeared especially relevant to you - have you been able to identify with a particular historical era?
KEY WORDS :your version of events, your achievements , your place in history, your thoughts about history (write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words could appear in those quotes)
EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream where the dreamer talks about local history was triggered by the dreamers recent interest in alternative history. She had been watching TV programs which argued that the entire course of ancient history was shaped by aliens from outer space. This was changing the dreamers thoughts about history entirely. So the mention of history in the dream was a literal symbol. The dreams meaning linked to this theme of "my thoughts about history" and the dream captured this exact thought process "I have been watching these programs on aliens and they say that aliens shaped our history. I am really into this and I am starting to change my whole perception of history"
Example dream : History in a dream referred to the differing versions of a family problem. The dreamers sister had one version of the story and others had another version of what had happened. The dreamers sister was saying that she had helped her mother and so therefore deserved some money that she lent off her. Others thought that she was taking advantage of her mother. So the symbolical meaning of "history" in the dream translates into the words "my version of what happened" which formed a key part of a thought on the dreamers mind "She thinks that she is right. Her mother has a different version of what happened and believes that she was guilty of using her in a terrible way."
Example dream : Looking at some history represented the dreamers own thoughts about his own place in history - how people would remember him if he died that day. He had had big hopes and dreams but all these were now nothing as he had been struck down by a degenerative illness.
