Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook CHRISTMAS : It is a strange language the language of dream symbols. Dreams symbols are the metaphors used to express the ideas and emotions in our mind. They are part of the process how we store complex intuitions and creative ideas. To understand a dream symbol we need to analyse all the different things that we associate with it. One dreamer had a Christmas dream just before her birthday and so it seems that Christmas is how the dream mind refers to any kind of special occasion when we receive presents. Christmas in a dream may simply be how your mind refers to any big family gathering. Its just part of how dreams build up an atmosphere by using symbols which evoke similar emotions.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations
- Have you got to buy a present or did you receive one yesterday?
- Is Christmas and planning for Christmas on your mind right now?
- Have you got lots of quality leisure time right now?
- What special occasions are you thinking about right now?

KEY WORDS : Quality time, special occasion, Christmas plans, receiving gifts

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "a coming together"
- "a special occasion"
- "receiving gifts and presents"
- "my plans for Christmas"
- "my Christmas was..."
- "quality leisure time"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of Christmas dreams?

Christmas is of course a holiday so can link with any kind of break or holiday or free time. E.g.

"I find it difficult to enjoy myself and to relax during breaks. I like work and right now I have just finished a major work project and its left me with nothing to do. I find it difficult to enjoy free time. "[Dream symbol - Christmas][the dream on which this quote is based is featured at the end of this article]

"I had an enforced HOLIDAY due to some technical problems at work but I used it productively"[Dream Dictionary - Christmas tree grows through floorboards]

Christmas may of course symbolise Christmas itself especially if it is looming up or has just happened. It may link to some feelings associated with Christmas right now. E.g.

"I had a terrible Christmas and the dream symbolises my attempts to get rid of all the junk in my head from Christmas"[Dream Dictionary - clear Christmas junk]

Christmas in dreams may link to some kind of celebration in real life. E.g.

"I have been ill for sometime now. I am starting to get better and I feel really quite celebratory. I want to get back involved in the world"[Dream Dictionary - Christmas]

Christmas links to receiving presents. It may link to other moments when you receive presents such as at birthdays. E.g.

"On the day before the dream I got a new bible as a present for my birthday"[Dream symbol - bible for Christmas present]

SAMPLE DREAM
--------------------------
THE DREAM I am in Newcastle. There seems some connection to a car park. I seem to be able to turn quickly on a car park. In the dream that parking is associated with great skill and ability to do things quickly. It seems to be Christmas and my mother is handing out luxury chocolates in the distinctive way she used to - one each and everyone gets a totally equal amount.

THE REALITY The dreamer had just finished a work project and was not one for sitting around doing nothing. He did not like the enforced idleness. He preferred to get involved and interested in something.

DREAM ANALYSIS If a town or city which begins with "NEW" is in a dream that often indicates it is symbolic of some new mood within the dreamer. Its usually a very easy dream to solve. You just trace the dream back to that feeling of something new in your life. In this case the dreamer did sense a new mood in his life. He had just finished a long work project and was finding lots of free time at work. This was not a happy situation for the dreamer who was most happiest when he had something to get his teeth stuck into.

Parking is also a good symbol here as parking often links to moments when you are trying to find a new comfortable situation. That was certainly the case here.

The most difficult symbol to understand is Christmas here. In this dream the dreamer admitted that the main problem at hand was his feeling of unease. The day before he had a lot of free time on his hands due to the finish of a major work project. But he was not able to enjoy the luxury of free time and actually enjoyed work.

Symbolic Meanings
CHOCOLATES : "enjoyment and leisure"
CHRISTMAS : "having free time and a break"
NEWCASTLE : "a new feeling and mood in the dreamer - the dreamer was feeling as if some new situation and mood had taken over"
PARKING : "finding a new comfortable situation"
