Dream symbol Bagpipe


scottish instrument, pipe with holes, tradition, female side

A bagpipe is a woodwind instrument which has not been played in our latitudes since the 19th century, but as a Scottish national instrument it still arouses lively popularity in Scotland's tradition and sounds characteristically polyphonic. When playing or blowing the whistle connected to an air bag produces a humming undertone that sounds polyphonic in character.

Although this bagpipe, as the bagpipes are colloquially called, certainly does not appear so often in our everyday life, it can probably play a weighty role as a dream motif in our sleep. Maybe you even see yourself playing the bagpipes in a dream, wearing a tartan skirt and socks. Or maybe you see a Scottish man in a traditional outfit walking through your dream playing music. How you could interpret this dream symbol will be explained afterwards.

General dream interpretation

If a person dreams only of whistling or sounding of bagpipes, it generally indicates positive news. Something pleasant will come to the dreamer as a message. On the contrary, if a very oblique sound of the bagpipe strikes our ear, we can assume that this dream image warns to be careful and unfavorable circumstances are waiting for us.

In general dream interpretation, a dream situation of a bagpipe, where also the player of this bagpipe appears in the dream, is seen as a symbol of SOCIETY. It is possible that the dreamer is invited to a party at work or a larger family celebration with many relatives is coming up. Furthermore, the bagpipe indicates that the subject has the ability to fit well into given social classes. However, this dream urges the person not to be seduced by private pleasures and thus forget or put aside important obligations.

Sometimes the dream also warns against making oneself ridiculous in public, when the image appears that the person himself plays bagpipes in the dream. The dreamer is warned that his behavior could make him the laughing stock of others in the near future.

Psychological dream interpretation

On the psychological level, the traditional meaning of the bagpipe is especially decisive and of no small importance. This instrument is traditionally played by men in kilts. In this context, the dream analysis of psychology sees above all the symbol that indicates inner conflicts with one's own feminine personality parts. Emotions or even inclination, which are probably suppressed by the person concerned, because he cannot stand by them, could be the reason for this dream image. Such a dream of the "bagpipe" serves especially the request to deal with this topic.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to the spiritual view, a bagpipe is a TOOL with which the dreamer reveals his personality and essence. He ponders carefully to whom he opens himself and what he really wants to show of himself.
