Dream symbol Poltergeist


unexplained phenomena, parapsychology, haunting, enhanced perception

Parapsychology has been dealing with the phenomenon of "poltergeist" since the 19th century, as well as para-science and also recognized branches such as psychiatry.

These are souls who have already died and have not found rest because they died unintentionally and could not resolve a situation with living relatives.

Unexplained phenomena have always attracted great attention, which has been illustrated in some movies, such as "Ghostbusters". Supposedly, poltergeists seek out certain houses or apartments and wreak havoc there by levitating or flying objects around, making sounds of an inexplicable nature, being able to turn on electronic devices, etc.

To be helplessly at the mercy of a haunting that is not objectively visible is most likely very frightening. In addition, a poltergeist comes unhindered through closed doors and walls and nothing can stop it.

Past experiences as well as current individual life circumstances should be included in the dream interpretation.

General dream interpretation

The dream symbol of the poltergeist symbolizes the INNER VOICE. The appearance of the poltergeist in the dream situation represents a messenger who is supposed to make the dreamer aware of a certain impairment and disturbance in his life situation. The particular decisions that the person has recently made should be reconsidered. It could lead to a misconduct and one realizes too late that he is on the wrong track and it will be difficult to make up for the mistake. It can be financial and professional situations or even in partnership matters one is about to do or say something hurtful. Nevertheless, the poltergeist can indicate negative influence from the outside. This dream image appears to the dreamer as a support to clarify difficult circumstances and get them out of the way.

A poltergeist in a dream can also profoundly serve as a guide to the dreamer. The function of a guiding spirit who has an overview of the situation at hand and clearly represents potential, motivation, aspirations and goals to the person in front of the mind's eye. He further embodies processes that have already been set in motion, but have not reached consciousness. A warning is also hidden in the image of the poltergeist, which suggests not to cherish irrational expectations and hopes, because some desired plans and goals could turn out to be mere "pipe dreams".

Psychological dream interpretation

For psychological dream analysis, the dream image of the poltergeist, represents the reflection of a certain part of one's personality. The dreamer is confronted with events from his past, which he has not yet fully dealt with. A dispute with someone may not have been resolved peacefully, or a breakup with a relationship partner may not have been overcome. Perhaps a dialogue with a poltergeist is taking place in the dream, which augurs that the dreamer is facing his own emotions and dealing with them. In this way he gets in touch with his own feelings and can release fears and worries in this form.

Spiritual dream interpretation

From the spiritual dream interpretation point of view, the dream image "poltergeist" promises an expanded field of perception, which is related to the collective subconscious. The dream analysis announces by the poltergeist in the dream that the person concerned has earned and will get an "award" on a transcendental level.
