Dream symbol Troublemaker


stubborn, swimming against the current, quarrelsome, know-it-all, grumbler, pent-up anger, nay-sayer

The term "troublemaker" comes from the judiciary and according to it a person was called, who without consideration for loss and with a small chance of assertiveness, led a legal dispute.

Nowadays, the meaning has also become accepted in ordinary language usage. The word is used to refer to a person with an opinionated and know-it-all tendency, who grumbles about every little thing and beyond any sense of empathy.

In the psychiatric field, it is a troublemaker in relation to a personality disorder or a delusional clinical picture. Also, a behavior of a pathological wheelwright may occur as a concomitant for a mental disorder. Older men who exhibit blasphemous and nagging behavior are also more often referred to as querulous.

What could be hidden behind this dream image after the explanation of terms on the dream level? Perhaps it points to something other than what seems to be obvious? A troublemaker or a psychotic accompanying circumstance?

General dream interpretation

The dream image "troublemaker" indicates to exercise caution in the social environment without putting others before the head. The dreamer should be open to new encounters but not immediately wear his heart on his sleeve. Otherwise this could have negative consequences.

If such a troublemaker incites unrest in the dream, it augurs that one should hold back with frivolous promises at the moment. Otherwise one could get quite one on the cap. If you play the troublemaker and rebel in your dream, there could be conflicts with people soon, because the dreamer does not accept it if others do not share his opinion.

If the complainer organizes a violent uproar in dreamland, this augurs that although arguments will occur, the dreamer can count on support from people who stand behind him. However, if the complainer is overwhelmed at the dream level, this serves as an indication that the person feels abandoned and lonely with his views and attitudes.

If one even gets into a fight with a rioter, this expresses that one will lose out in certain matters in real life. Often the case is about a legal situation which will not be in one's favor.

Psychological dream interpretation

The psychological dream interpretation refers in the dream symbol "troublemaker" the symbolization for pent-up anger. In everyday life, the dreamer probably does not manage to express his real feelings and so he has no choice but to swallow or suppress the unspoken. On the dream level it is easy for him to reveal and communicate his ideas and truths.

If you beat up a bully in your dream, it means that you should be more considerate and understanding of other opinions in real life. It could not hurt to strive for more openness and wider horizons.

If the disputant is caught by the police in a dream, this serves as a warning symbol against gossip. He is advised by this dream situation not to rant and spread stories behind other people's backs. If the troublemaker is brought before the judge in the dream, it should encourage more introspection and self-criticism. Then you would be able to more consciously perceive your own bossiness and what ugly effect it has on you and radiates to those around you. Keep yourself in check a bit and look for change in this area soon.

Spiritual dream interpretation

On the transcendental dream level, the querulous person is seen as a symbol of obstacles and problems of all kinds with regard to spiritual progress. The dreamer should urgently clear this out of the way in conscious waking life.
