Dream symbol Isolation


loneliness, being alone, being excluded, being shut out, withdrawal, isolation

The dream image of "isolation" conveys a rather negative connotation. Those who find themselves in such dreams most likely feel excluded, lonely or even abandoned, and is often accompanied by negative feelings. On the other hand, some people consciously choose to be eremitically alone and voluntarily withdraw from the world. This can include spiritual reasons or even finding the outside world too harsh and hurtful. Perhaps you just want to recover from all the stress in the outside world through a time-conditioned retreat and enjoy the silence in solitude.

General dream interpretation

According to the general dream interpretation, an induced isolation, which feels negative in the dream, can stand for profound insecurity . The dreamer has not yet "arrived" in life, he does not yet know his place. Everyday life could bring great obstacles for him, where he feels left alone with decisions and actions.

The situation in the dream, where he is in isolation, symbolizes that the person in question has no person in the real social field to whom he can build trust. He cannot share his sorrow and pain with anyone. However, this does not necessarily mean that the dreaming person lives completely isolated on a mountain or in the forest and does not enjoy any joy. On in the midst of many people loneliness is possible.

Someone who deliberately isolates himself from others voluntarily in a dream wants to take time out free from responsibilities. The dreamer is probably in over his head with some things. In order to put his personal affairs in the foreground, he wants to shovel off some time and not let anything of difficulties at work, stressful disputes in the social environment or even problems of other friends and acquaintances burden himself.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychological dream interpretation interprets the dream of isolation as a profound fear ofloneliness. The dreamer fears exclusion from his social community. Perhaps the isolation already corresponds to the reality that he perceives himself separated from the outside and all the sorrow that comes with it is processed in the dream.

Psychoanalysts interpret in the dream symbol "isolation" also an avoidance strategy starting from the subconscious. Those who isolate themselves according to free will might want to make their decisions independently of others. Without external influences one is protected and will not be hurt or disappointed. The only question is whether avoidance or inaccessibility leads to happiness in the long run. How much or little the dreamer hopes for or needs help from the social environment such as family and friends is revealed by feelings that arise in connection in the dream.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual dream research, isolation indicates a new step on one's path of development. On this path one goes through different phases and is exposed to unexpected variables. But only the one who fully engages with all that life offers will experience perfection in the end.
