Dream symbol Voodoo doll


suffering pain, inflicting harm, black magic, bewitching, recognition, power, ruthlessness

The term voodoo immediately brings to mind a doll spiked with needles.

Sticking it into the doll is meant to inflict pain on a particular person.

In this way, a person is cursed and suffers great pain. This harm spell can also be used to manipulate a person into submitting to the will of someone else.

Originally, this cult comes from West Africa and this analogy spell was specifically practiced in Haiti by priests.

However, this voodoo doll spell is used less to harm someone than to heal the sick.

General dream interpretation

In general dream interpretation, the symbol of the voodoo doll expresses an admonition to the dreamer. The dreamer should not be careless with the feelings of others and exploit people for his own expediency. If the figure of the voodoo doll appears in the dream in connection with a ceremony, this embodies the desire for appreciation and recognition of the person in real life. In order to reach this goal, every means is right for him without consideration of losses. If the sleeper dreams of a voodoo priest holding a doll in his hands, this indicates that the dreamer should take more responsibility for his deeds and actions in everyday life and not just conform to the will of others.

If the dreamer plays a magician himself and handles a voodoo doll, he should not go through life too indifferently, but remember that every action triggers a certain reaction. This dream image calls for mindfulness. If a voodoo doll is pierced with many needles in a dream in order to inflict suffering on someone, this prophesies forthcoming quarrels and conflicts in the family circle , to which he himself has contributed decisively, through rash statements or actions.

Psychological dream interpretation

On the psychological level, this dream image of the voodoo doll illustrates special personality traits of the dreamer, which he represses inwardly. If children are also present in the dream scene, playing a game with a voodoo doll, this gives the impression that the dreamer has a tendency to recklessness . Most likely, he does not take his personal duties very seriously and likes to escape from them. If the dreamer in question bewitches another person in his sleep, this is supposed to illustrate to the dreamer that he often uses his power in a manipulative way in real life. However, if this doll is used for healing purposes, it expresses that the dreamer is striving for fulfillment of his true needs, which may include the level of sexual satisfaction and longings.

Spiritual dream interpretation

In the spiritual field of dream interpretation, the voodoo doll is a sign that the person concerned has a powerful gift to avert harm, as well as the ability to heal. He should become aware of this potential and use it purposefully.
