Dream symbol Prosthesis


dental implant, denture, missing body part, deceptive appearance, deception, transformation

A prosthesis is an artificial replacement of a missing part on the body. It can be teeth, arms or legs. As a tooth replacement, a so-called prosthesis is probably the most common. All these variants are very expensive, but nobody wants to walk around without them.

When dreaming of the absence of a body part, the prospect of a prosthesis is probably a rather poor consolation.

General dream interpretation

According to the general dream interpretation analysis, the dream image "prosthesis" promises an attempt to deceive . The dreaming person wants to pretend to be something and create a false impression in order to provide a good self-image to the outside world and to conceal mistakes. The person is not honest about a certain matter and ends up lying only to himself.

A tooth replacement is also considered a loss that can be replaced. According to the popular interpretation, the prosthesis in the dream conveys difficulties with the boss at work. The dreamer has not come out with the truth to him, therefore the trust of the boss and the mood towards him is somewhat clouded.

The dream image of a prosthesis can be seen on the dream level as a symbol of support and help. It can indicate that the dreamer himself is in need of help at the moment. Losing a body part can also augur that the dreamer will have to part with someone close to him.

A foot prosthesis appearing in a dream is a symbol of unrequited love. If the person is missing a hand in the dream, a prosthesis reflects limiting possibilities of action in a certain matter. A prosthetic leg as a substitute illustrates in relation to the interpretation that one has lost one's way on the path of life, is on the wrong track.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychological dream interpretation, a prosthetic dream is usually a fear that the dreamer has of loss in general. In dream analysis, an unconscious fear of losing certain parts of the personality is expressed.

The fear of having a prosthesis made instead of the naturally grown foot also represents the fear of castration. The dreamer unconsciously processes a transformation process, with which the dreamer believes to lose sexual char isma and charismatic attraction.

In psychological interpretation, a body part replaced by the prosthesis conveys a not unimportant meaning. Removed legs or feet serve as an indication that external and internal inhibitions paralyze the person. Loss of arms and hands indicate felt powerlessness and this dream image often occurs after the passing of a loved one. The person who remains feels alone and is thus overwhelmed by everyday life. He thinks he is not capable of surviving or living on his own.

The replacement prosthesis symbolizes only a temporary tool or aid. Generally speaking, it illustrates to the dreamer his own fear of future changes, against which he is resisting.

Spiritual dream interpretation

The "prosthesis" on the dream level symbolizes here that the spiritual balance is out of balance and the possibility of an auxiliary tool is necessary. The dreamer is urged to go in search of another spiritual path of development, as a new phase of life is announced.

Spiritual dream analysis sees an amputation as an impairment and a disturbance of perfect naturalness. If teeth fall out in a dream, this image expresses transformation and growth.
