Dream symbol Competition


rival, competition, rivalry, out of the race, ambition, envy

Competition, rivalry or rivalry have always had special relevance for dream analysis. The nature of mankind loves to measure itself against each other or to find out who is the stronger or the better. Ambition and competition can thus make their way into our dreams without surprise. This can be expressed in tournaments, a rally, wrestling, athletics competition, Olympics, a test of any kind or even other competitions. There is a possibility to appear in a dream as a gladiator in a battle or to participate as a knight at the king's court in a horse show. Many different competitions can be summarized under the term competition. So how are these dreams interpreted?

General dream interpretation

If the dreamer participates in a contest while asleep, this prophesies losses that could flutter into the dreamer's house. The dream plane proclaims that not everything can be carried out exactly as planned and that hoped-for ideas of the dreamer will burst like soap bubbles in the wind. If one loses to the opponent especially in a wrestling match or gets a bad rating in a competition, this symbolizes that in reality there will be damage to one's reputation or one's social standing will deteriorate. These developments could have a negative impact on a professional level.

If one emerges as a successful winner from a fight or game, this dream image betrays a positive omen. Fame, glory and popularity will be bestowed upon the person concerned. Achieving success in a hunt also indicates positive advancement . The more popular and famous one becomes, the more competition one has to face, also the number of enviers usually increases around a successful person. One is well advised to be on one's guard. It will crystallize on its own whom to trust and whom not to trust. It is possible that a supposed friend may be planning something in the back of his mind to harm the person in question.

If you see yourself in a dream image jubilating over a glorious victory, this symbolizes the potential that you easily overestimate in real life. If one plays as a participant in a billiard tournament, this usually announces unpleasant events. One should consider other symbols in the dream for an accurate interpretation, which may reveal, for example, the nature of the competition. If one takes part in a roller skates competition, this indicates effortful commitment, which the dreamer accepts in order to reach a set goal as quickly as possible.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychological dream research, the symbol of competition, illustrates a contest of inner character aspects. The dreamer is not in balance in his inner life. Attitudes, feelings and needs are in discord with each other and contradict each other to a great extent, creating an emotional turmoil. The competitive dream serves as an invitation to deal more intensively with one's own personality and thus to establish a balance of all parts. Professional help could be very helpful in this case, if this dream image keeps recurring.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to the transcendental interpretation, competition in sleep symbolizes a conflict of a spiritual nature that cannot be resolved on its own. High sensitivity is required to master a test that requires a certain maturity .
