Dream symbol Rejection


to be rejected, not to be loved, lack of self-worth, not to be good enough, inacceptance

If one experiences a rejection, whether in a love affair, in a job, in a circle of friends or wherever, then this is something very painful, which can affect us deeply and even send us into shock. Often the fact why we feel rejected is not obvious. It may be perceived purely subjectively by the person concerned, but not at all meant by the other person. Objective and subjective are fundamentally different in this subject. We feel bad and actually there should be no reason for it.

There is then also the case that we are rejected with very clear words, whether justified or unjustified. This could be related to the feeling of failure and inability. But one is not Everybody's Darling or is not liked and loved by everyone, the aspect of being rejected is part of the ups and downs of life. We should learn to deal with it and to become more insensitive to the statements and actions of others, which in turn means to achieve more inner psychological independence.

What do dream researchers think about the symbol "rejection"?

General dream interpretation

Not only a rejection in real life, but also in dream life feels unpleasant. This dream image could be related to a real situation from everyday life where one was rejected and is reflected by this dream. The dreamer apparently has not yet digested this event and is thus confronted with it again on the dream level.

For a concrete dream analysis it is advantageous to review the exact dream situation in order to grasp which feelings accompanied it, which persons were involved and which other objects or events were still to be seen. A person from whom we experience rejection can also signal which characteristics we reject in ourselves or what we want to move away from. It is necessary to find out if this behavior is meaningful. Most of the time the acceptance of these aspects serves for resolution and liberation.

On the other hand, it serves mental health to be clear about which areas on the outside need demarcation .

If one is rejected by a close person in real life, this usually serves only as a symbol that a concern is present. If one has deep feelings for this person, one also desires their love and affection. Through these feelings, fears can come forth that one is not enough and will be rejected or that one will even lose this person. This dream symbol serves as an invitation to the dreamer to look through the very basis of one's relationship.

Psychological dream interpretation

On the psychological level, dreams of a rejection express a confrontation with one's own ego issues in the unconscious. It depends on what way the dreamer dealt with the situation in the dream. How exactly did this rejection take place in the dream? Did one stand up to it like a rock? Or did one sink into self-pity? This is usually very revealing for a clear dream statement for the person in question.

Often distorted perceptions, beliefs and attitudes get in the way and make us feel rejected. We have a false self-image in that we believe we are not beautiful, intelligent or slim enough. It is as if we are unconsciously asking for confirmations of our assumption! This is what is meant by the expression "Law of Attraction".

Hereby the advice is given to the person to explore constricting concepts and beliefs about oneself and to consciously detach oneself from them.

Spiritual dream interpretation

For spiritual dream analysis, the dream symbol of rejection stands for denial of one's spiritual essence aspects. This dream image is to ask him not to give weight only to rational thinking, but also to pay attention to the inner spiritual realms. Everything belongs to the one existence and nothing must be rejected or separated. Everything has its right to exist.
