ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of alcohol in dreams?

Alcohol in dreams can indicate our attitude. A little alcohol maybe suggests a relaxed attitude. A lot of alcohol may suggest a very lax attitude. We have perhaps not taken things seriously. E.g.

"My employers have a slightly RELAXED ATTITUDE but they do insist that we keep them informed so they can make arrangements if we are off sick" [Dream symbol - glass of wine]

"My teacher suggested that we take a slightly RELAXED ATTITUDE towards our exams " [Dream symbol - a small drink]

"I meant to take a relaxed attitude to my exams yet totally TOTALLY LOST CONTROL" [Dream symbol - drunk]

Alcohol can link to congeniality and a need to get along with people in a relaxed social atmostphere. E.g.

"I have joined a new art group. I have got to recognise that it is more of a social gathering and I have got to fit into this new setting. My old art group was more just about sharing technical knowledge whislt this new group is more like a group fo friends"[Dream symbol - Realising I need to buy a drink for my former college tutors]

Alcohol can of course be a literal symbol and refers to real life drunkenness and drink.

"I know now that I should not have polished off that Tequela the other night. It left me with a terrible cold. I have important work to do and need to keep my judgement."[Dream symbol - See beer I left behind] [the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"Many of my family are drunks and drug users. They have got to change their ways or the Lord will sweep them away. I know I am not free from sin but I try to lead a good life"[Dream symbol - drunks and drug users]

-----------------------
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.

THE DREAM I am climbing up a tree.. I cross over to another tree. But coming down I cannot get down. I look to another tree but cannot see a way down.

I climb up the tree to take a look at some people working near by. At the top there is a glass of beer. I had left it behind some other time. I was going to drink it. Then I think it may affect my judgement. I am very high up and one slip up and thats it.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been drinking a lot recently. yet he also had important work to do. He had been affected by cold the previous day and was realizing that he needed to control this more.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have important things to do. I do not want my drinking to affect this. I know now I should not have polished off that Tequelia the other day".

THE INTERPRETATION Many interpretations of dreams link to the previous day. This one seems highly linked to recent events. The dreamer had just had a cold and had openly stated that this was caused by drinking. Many symbols can be literal. Thats often the case with alcohol. Here the beer was not highly abstract and symbolic. It merely linked to itself and its impact on the dreamer.

Often some important moment of the dream sticks out. Thats the case in this dream. The dreamer obviously comes to some important conclusion. He sees that his judgment is affected. This represents an important new conclusion in real life. Its an insight into recent events. Its merely copying and reflecting real life. He had already realized the need to keep drinking under control.

The dream also seems to mimic real life. Though in some very abstract way. In real life he had some Tequela hidden away at home. He had decided to drink it a couple of nights before. Perhaps this is represented by the bottle of beer left behind on the dream. Its left over alcohol. This had given him a cold. He had worked this out. In the dream he now realised that he should not act in the way that he acted in real life a couple of days previously.

The people working in the dream reflect his own recognition that he had a lot of important work to do. Several tasks were on his mind and he realized that he wanted to retain sound judgment in real life.

Often its possible to over analyze a dream. Some symbols may clearly have been over analyzed here yet on the other hand we have a clear link to the issue that triggered this dream. Its obviously been on the dreamers mind and its an important new insight. So its often best to see just how far the symbols reflect reality.

Symbolic Meanings
BEER : "The dreamers recent heavy drinking."
BEER : "The beer could represent a bottle of Tequela the dreamer had found recently. It was similar to the dream in that it was left over alcohol he came across by chance."
WORKING : "The dreamers recognition of important work he needed to complete"
