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

Kings and Queens above all link to power and people who take control and ideas which are assuming control. So try to relate a dream to some issue involving power in your life. E.g.

"Yesterday I got in a discussion with a new colleague at work. We had a difference of opinion. I did not like to openly attack his view because I was unsure if others would support me or him. I see myself as COMMANDING and AUTHORATATIVE yet I am unsure if that will continue"[Dream dictionary - unsure if they will support king or turn against him][Dream Dictionary - the full dream on which this quote is based is featured at the end of this article]

"My boyfriends family have some crazy notions about making him into a model or putting him American Idol. This is warping his mind and taking over his life. I am not sure I like him this way."[Dream Dictionary - King monster]

"I am becoming increasingly ill. I have always been fiercely INDEPENDANT. But now I realise that control over my life is been taken out of my hands"[Dream symbol - King dies]

Kings and queens can link to the world of ideas and the approaches we have to various intellectual matters. The king or queen will signify the most commanding and authoritative approach or idea. E.g.

"I am testing out various approaches at work and want to see which is best. I will see what the reaction is to each"[Dream Dictionary - kings and queens reaction]

Kings are often related to power and leadership of a family or community. It maybe a symbol for head of the family. E.g.

"My father has just died and now I am the new HEAD OF THE FAMILY"[Dream symbol - king]

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 with three other men. One is a king. There appears to be some kind of game or contest. There seems to be some uncertainty. Will the king get the support of two other men in the group or will they band together and overthrow him.

THE REALITY The previous day at work the dreamer had been in two minds about correcting a new employee. This new employee was very able. The dreamer did not like to correct him because he secretly feared him slightly. He drew back from entering an argument. The dreamer likes to see himself as expert and authoritative but had some misgivings about entering into open dispute with this new man.

DREAM ANALYSIS The dream obviously involves a king. The dream also involves the issue of power and power wrangling. So in this sense the dream is easy to work out. The dreamer looked at his own life and at the day before the dream(most dreams are about issues which are alive in your mind then). There was a real issue or situation which fitted this. The dreamer had been in two minds about challenging the views put forward by a new colleague. The dreamer felt of himself as being commanding and authoritative at work. He felt he was the expert. Yet the new colleague seemed very able. He was unsure about taking on the new guy. This

Dreams capture these little dilemmas in our lives. Dreams are about reading signals in the behavior of others and picking the right moments. We constantly monitor our own behavior in this way.

Symbolic Meanings
KING : "The dreamers perception of himself as being commanding and in charge"
KINGS : "Thinking about how to act - should the dreamer show his superior knowledge and humiliate the newcomer at work. It may offend him and make an enemy later"
MEN SUPPORT KING : "the dreamer hopes for support and recognition of his position within the company"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I like to be dominant at work. Most people accept my technical knowledge. There is a new employee at work. He seems quite clever. I want to correct him on one or two points but do not like to make him feel inferior. Also I kind of fear him as he does seem clever so may grow to dislike me. Overall I am not sure how to act towards him. "
