Dream Analysis Part 1: Role Playing Adventurer


I finally decided to go the extra mile and put meaning to my unconscious mind. This is only part one. I found that the more I worked through this, the deeper it got, and the LONGER it got. I’m breaking it down into two parts because of this. The second part is the actual analysis. These are only the definitions I used. The book I used is Dream Dictionary by Tony Crisp, and I supplemented with a dream website. Here we go:


Little Sister: (In general, all siblings and children are used in our dreams as a general depiction of different aspects of ourselves.)

Feeling of self or lesser part of self; rival; feelings of kinship. Ones experiences at that age; vulnerability.

Little Brother:

Oneself, or the denied part of self, meeting whatever is met in the dream; kinship; sense of rivalry; anger or pleasure from memories. Outgoing but vulnerable self.


Originally I had walrus written down, but either their was no definition or the one provided made no sense what so ever. In my dream the walrus is actually a hoarker in Skyrim – a walrus type monster – hence at the bottom of the dream there is a picture of it. So instead of walrus (which was the lay term for the less nerdy crowd) ; the definition of what came after me in the dream is now a monster.

Monsters are our internal emotions or drives you are frightened of; dread of death; a monstrous deed done or lie lived; your negative relationship with your life energy.

House go back to this: (Attackers/Intruders from outside)

Social pressures or responses to criticisms.

Old beliefs and attitudes are represented by old houses. To dream of a new house represents a new era of your life.

If you dream that someone broke into your house, you have a sense of being violated. Your personal boundaries has been crossed by someone. 

To dream of a house also indicates that your subconscious is reminding you of something long forgotten, such as good traits you are no longer using.


Creativity; nourishing oneself; mother role, diet. May also refer to pride in the ability to create a home and contribute something valuable to the family.

To dream of seeing a kitchen represents a need to nurture your spiritual life.

Living Room:

Personal leisure, “space” to be oneself; everyday life

To dream that you are in the living room indicates how you are as a person and how others perceive the way you live. It is suggestive of your principles and beliefs.

Shrinking Walrus:

Becoming less threatening or interesting or pay less important part in ones life; are seen as connected with the unconscious, aspects  of which often are seen as of “little” significance, yet are  full of the sort of power that motivates or undermines our resolve


Fundamental to the whole drama of the hero/ine is the evolution of our identity from the depths of unconsciousness in the physical process of conception, through the developing of self-awareness as an adult. From the ocean of our collective culture, language, and society, there is the gradual emergence of ourself as a mature individual. Th do this we go through transitions of death and rebirth several times from baby to youth, youth to teen, teen to adult, and adult to elderly. It’s such an incredible story – so heroic, fraught with dangers and triumphs. Its the greatest story in the world, and you’re the hero.


Winter represents emotional coldness; a quiescence awaiting an appropriate period for growth; the end of a cycle of action and fruitfulness; absence of relationship; an unfruitful period of life; old age; death.


Ice or something frozen can represent: Rigidity, stubbornness, or unchangeability Brittleness or fragility Cold-heartedness or unwelcoming Dormancy, a rest period, or being “on hold” A wintry, icy landscape can represent a feeling of temporary lack of progress, hopelessness, or bleakness with respect to a certain aspect of your life.

*Considering with the fact this was an Ice wall, the conjunction would be


Codes of behavior, beleif systems, attitudes – often unconcsious – you live within, or are protected by; the boundaries of behavior, or thoughts you keep within, are fearful of extending beyond, or are trapped by- thereby, what one feels to be barriers or restrictions; ones feelings of confidence that protect against anxiety or social “knocks”; fears that keep you limited in your activities; the feelings or attitudes you keep people away with – the walls we put up between us to maintain privacy, stop being hurt, or to maintain a role or status; a special feeling sittuation that you have created, such as developing a sense of your own value; the “reality” you have accepted as the truth, either given you ready-made by your culture or one you have built personally. The reality is like the walls you live with.


Looking through dreams in which the words “up”, “upwards”, “upper”, “upstairs” are used, again and again one sees the same feeling as expressed in the example below- getting away from being “pulled down” by difficult feelings, by depression, by everyday duties, by difficulties in a relationships, and so on. It expresses the techniques we use when worried, such as reading a book, being entertained, having a drink – anything to take away the attention of our difficult feelings. This does not remove the anxieties. It would be longer lasting if we faced them and transformed them; moving upwards, of course, also depicts positive change; shifting toward mental activity; gaining a wider view of things; promotion.


Although the wolf can depict a feeling that “things” are out to get us, the wolf is often just fear. Fear is one of our instinctive reactions to situations  so is depicted by an animal. We may find ourselves a prisoner of such feelings. The wolf, as suggested by fairy stories like red riding hood, also represents the female fear of powerful male sexuality; represents sexuality or anger; emotions and drives you’re frightened of.

After reading this I remember the prequel to the wolves was being afraid to jump off that cliff because of my fear of heights. The three wolves came and I had no choice because I had to fight or be killed.


Awareness; clearness of mind; purity; cleanness; light feelings. In certain dreams white is a very threatening color because of the possible connection of hospitals. Can also depict death or sickness.


The desire to hurt or kill; If stabbing, shooting, or killing something need to consider what part of ourselves we are turning aggression upon.

Because a sword bears a cross as a handle, it has mixed meanings. Erection; conflict or a fight; doing battle with someone; anger; social power; justice; transcend strength.


Treasures are the riches of your wholeness – the wonder, wisdom, or value of life; something we have had to face difficulties to gain, such as personal achievement, mature love, self-realization, wholeness; something that is enormously valuable in bringing wholeness and health to oneself – such as a balancing of dry intellectual achievement with deeply felt love, or an introverted personality with outward activity.


The image or impression you present to others as you make forays into the world, work with others, and accomplish things in the world around you. Your visibility to others as you go about your business in the world.

Attacked by Animal: Introverting ones own aggression, fear of ones own natural urges; anxiety about aggression in oneself or other people; feeling attacked by an external person.
