Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

PARALYZED : Paralysis is a difficult symbol in dreams because its linked to sleep phenomenon. Sleep paralysis is when you enter into an unnatural stage of sleep and start dreaming. You get a sensation of total paralysis. Yet it is actually very easy to spot as the sensation in the dream is of absolute and total physical paralysis. Its a very real sensation as if someone is actually crushing you. Dreams will reflect very real and very immediate emotions. Paralysis dreams will often be associated with aliens or witches or demons. People therefore assume that such dreams do link to demons and witches. But remember dreams are metaphors. Its easier to just say that the dreams can often simply represent the total feeling of horror as you get sleep paralysis. The dream then is saying "It was a horrible feeling. It was like I was being attacked by aliens or demons".

If the sense of paralysis is more dream like then its likely that the paralysis is a symbol. In such cases its probably best to see this as a symbol. That could represent any feeling of paralysis in real life. It could represent a dominant figure who does not let you make any decisions for yourself. It could represent a feeling that something has happened so quickly that you were unable to act in any rational way or that the forces were so strong that nothing could be done. Paralysis may simply link to feelings of depression.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Did you feel an actual sense of real total paralysis?
- Yesterday did you feel totally powerless and unable to act in any way?
- Have you been very depressed recently?

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

Paralysis is often linked to sleep paralysis. We enter an unnatural stage of sleep and we get awful sensations. We can feel like we are being crushed. E.g.

"I was suffering sleep paralysis. It was very scary and the dream reflected my emotions of fear as I woke up"[Dream Dictionary - felt like I was being crushed by someone lying on top of me]

"I knew I was having sleep paralysis during the dream but I have had that before. I know its unpleasant but I knew the sensation would leave after a short while. Its not harmful. "[Dream Dictionary - felt like I was being crushed by someone lying on top of me]

"I had sleep paralysis but I also was also on a spiritual high at the time. I felt as if I was on a journey of discover"[Dream Dictionary - had feeling of paralysis followed by flying through the air]

Paralysis can also link to situations where nothing can be done or where things are happening very quickly. E.g.

"I was watching the TV reports of hurricane Katrina before going to bed. It was terrible with all that devastation. It brought home how terrible this was and its frightening that this happened right here in the USA to people just like myself"[Dream Dictionary - paralysed]

Paralysis can also link to an inability to make any rational decisions and feelings of depression. E.g.

"I am at a real low point right now. I feel unable to "[Dream dictionary - a sense of paralysis as I crawl to a bridge to commit suicide]

"I suffer from manic depression and feel unable to act rationally"[Dream symbol - my legs feel like lead and I cannot move]

Paralysis may link to an inability to move in the way that you wish. It may mean that people are dominating your life. E.g.

"I used to get a recurring dream of a paralysed mansion but it stopped when I stopped all contact with my mother. She tended to dominate me."[Dream symbol - recurring dreams of a paralysed mansion]
