DREAM DICTIONARY - Sadist :To understand the symbolic meaning of any symbol think about any situation which it may feature and any emotions which come to mind. Think about the type of people who are sadistic and also ways in which sadism could be crucial in your thinking. Sadism makes me think of people with sexual perversions who have kinky tendencies. But think also of people who revel in the pain of others – tax men and bureaucrats who enjoy imposing rules which cause others problems. You might describe a physiotherapist as a sadist if they force you to exercise when you feel pain. But in such cases they are being cruel to be kind. In other cases you maybe convinced that others are revelling in your pain. In such cases this may indicate that you are paranoid as they may "just be doing their job". In some cases you maybe examining your own motivations and wondering if your treatment of others is fair. You may also be recognising that you get a kick out of controlling others and enjoy power.
Now gather together words and phrases that are key to these situations. Here is my list of KEY WORDS : the tax man, kinky, sexual perversion, cruel to be kind, gang, overly bureaucratic , power, abuse, "just doing their job", enjoying control
Finally write down some sentences which feature the words and phrases that you have in your list and which capture some crucial thought right now. For instance your dream could capture the following type of thought "yesterday I was went to my friends house and it was obvious that he had just had sex with his girlfriend. The whole thing embarrassed me and my mind drifted into thinking about all the kinky things that may happen between them". Clearly the word kinky could be crucial to the symbolic meaning of sadism in the dream. Dreams can capture odd little thoughts like these as you start to think of someone in ways you do not usually think of.
