How is the symbol of the dwarf seen in dream interpretation? How can it be interpreted to meet a dwarf in a dream?

General dream interpretation

In general dream interpretation, the dream symbol "dwarf" is associated with hidden, secret forces. If the dreamer digs out these hidden energies and treasures from within himself, this will help him to achieve unexpected success.

Interpreted differently, the dwarf in the dream can also reflect one's own childhood days. He may not have been taken seriously because he was still small. It could also be about things that he does not let get out, qualities that wither unused inside because they do not receive attention or interest. Therefore, in the dream plot, the dwarf refers to not making himself small or proverbially "not putting his own light under the stool."

It could also be the presence of a certain person from the dreamer's environment that triggers the feeling of being small and unimportant in the person concerned. This should cause the dreamer to go deeper into these feelings.

Likewise, the dwarf serves as a warning symbol against arrogance or condescending behavior, because this could result in attracting people into one's own circle who deliberately want to do one harm.

Other possibilities of interpretation can be:

- A healthy and strong dwarf promises surprising solutions

- A sick dwarf warns the dreamer against reckless actions.

- A beautiful dwarf in slender form indicates health

- If one maintains a friendship with a dwarf, this indicates a cheerful and joyful condition of one's friends.

Psychological dream interpretation

From a psychological perspective, a dwarf in a dream usually illustrates a lack of self-esteem, as it is popularly said "to be worth nothing". One perceives oneself insignificant, almost non-existent to others. You may even have the feeling or fear that others look down on you. One also has too little confidence in oneself and is worried that one's plans will not work out.

According to psychoanalysis, the dream dwarf also embodies the character sides of the dreamer, which are too little appreciated, which lie fallow inside and cannot develop. Also his needs and longings have to make do with a spiritual "dwarf existence", since they do not receive much attention.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual dream interpretation, the dwarf represents the mysteries and powers of nature.
