Dream symbol Dictator


ruler, control, influential, violence, power

With the term "dictator", with which we in principle immediately associate negative, a name immediately comes to mind, which embodies one of the worst dictators in the history of the world: Adolf Hitler. In cruel ways of torture, which led to the death of millions of people, not to be surpassed and not to be comprehended.

Dictators stand for control, violence, imperiousness and implacability , and the whole people must submit to their will, otherwise fearful measures will be threatened. Fortunately, nowadays the democratic form of government is more and more widespread, where there are no more influential dictators.

General dream interpretation

On a general dream level, a dictator can indicate a strong potential for aggression and assertiveness . It is extremely likely that the signals a bossy side of the dreaming person. Character traits are not only directed outward, but also toward ourselves.

On the one hand, the dream symbol, may indicate that the subject strongly identifies with characteristics that are considered masculine for him personally. He wants to appear strong to the outside world, and he does this by being sharp with himself. He never allows himself weaknesses and faults and, fundamentally, finds it difficult or impossible to admit them to himself.

Thus, seen the other way around, it is inevitable that the dreamer possibly in the waking state plays out this dictator not only against himself, but directed outward.

In any case, it is clear that the dictator appears to the dreamer with the message to examine his own behavior towards his fellow human beings and to reflect whether he is not inclined to power addiction and control or to impose his will on others. Obviously, such behaviors have a very destructive effect in interpersonal contacts and relationships, a continuation in this regard suggest soon to be alone and loneliness. This dream image is understood by itself as an urgent warning for the person concerned.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychoanalysis interprets the dictator in a dream as a figure with a powerful desire for power and recognition. With all force he wants to make other people do what suits his ideas, how and what he wants.

The situation seems particularly alarming if a dictator, the dreamer concerned encounters in the dream very human, sympathetic traits. It is a hurried reference to examine one's own lived behavior, beliefs and attitudes in relation to the world and people living in it. A little more openness to the environment and to open his point of view to different opinions would be appropriate.

Holistically, everything could go better if the person would be in confidence, lean back and let others guide him once. The dictator role may rest for a while.

Spiritual dream interpretation

Spiritual dream interpretation uses the view that the dictator in the dream is interpreted as part of the male shadow side. This has little positive effect on the dreamer.
