Taboo

TabooTabooOne very unusual thing about dreaming is that almost any object, person, or association can seem to project a taboo power. This taboo may be either negative or positive.

A taboo is something that contains intrinsic, potentially dangerous power that may be conjured and directed against oneself or another.

Generally, the object, person, or association is representative of a moral wrong. Guns, for example, may carry a sense of taboo power. So may some magical dream objects. Occasionally, a very common object may have taboo power in your dream because of some experience you have had with it in your waking life.

Many times, the taboo power does not exist in an object, but in a relationship transaction that violates a moral code (such as incest, marital infidelity, or theft). Others times, the symbol of taboo is something shrouded, such as a stranger that you instinctively knew not to mess with. All of these are taboo representations.

The key to dream interpretation is to discover why your particular taboo experience was revealed through the particular object or person in question. Dreams often have a peculiar rationale in their storylines. It is a product of childhood memory organization being overlaid with adult reasoning and moral subtlety. Sometimes, the moral subtlety of adulthood is tempered in dreaming by the absolute right and wrong of childhood. Consequently, taboo imagery can crop up almost anywhere in dream life.

These taboo moments should be treated with importance. Many times, our most self-destructive emotional or relationship patterns are seen most clearly in dreams. Your mind may be trying to warn you, through taboo images, to avoid repeating the same mistakes over and over.

What I think would be very cool is if youhad a list of all your dreams on a sidebar, so we could look them up. I need to look up water but there is no glossary.

Hello Suzy

I was just going to make a blog with the list but a sidebar might be more affective maybe ill do both. Great idea thanks.

I don't have a post on water but I do have one on rain. If you need to search for something you can use Blogger's search blog navigator located on the top left of my blog page.
