Dream Decoder: U-X

In dreams, facets of personality that never get displayed in waking life can become quite animated. Nowhere is this more apparent than with violent behavior. The violence may be justified or random, but it is often extremely graphic. It is so graphic, in fact, that you should understand that this is normal-albeit disturbing-and that its presence is almost always an exaggeration of another point.Violence can be an off-shoot of heroic behavior, especially in rescuing dreams. Terrorism in the news has made all of us aware that the enemies can be in our midst. Kidnapping dreams, escape dreams, and protecting dreams are other versions of this type of violence.

Violence may come unexpectedly, as well (suddenly, you are just stomping some poor guy’s head with no apparent provocation).

Often these dreams deal with repressed anger towards authority figures. While wanting to become physically aggressive toward others is a common desire, it should never be acted on in waking life, and it very rarely is. However, the dream releases the anger for you. If you have recurring dreams of this nature, you may want to consider a mediated session with the object of your anger; or re-arrange your circumstances.

If you are the aggressor, does the violence frighten you or make you feel powerful?

If you are the witness to violence, do you feel ambivalent to it or does it somehow affect you?

You may be trying to slow down your pace or lack the means to make speedy progress. Walking is a dichotomous symbol in that it can be both frustrating and relaxing to walk.Walking is much more of a discovery-oriented journey than driving, flying, or other modes of transit. When walking, you are forced to experience your environment in much more detail since you are moving through it so slowly. To walk in a dream, especially if your perceived destination is far off, may indicate that you are missing some of the pleasure life has to offer by fixating on destinations, rather than on journeys.In order to see the interpretive value of the walking, it must be determined why walking is the preferred mode of transit.

Are there other dream characters involved in walking, marching, or hiking? Are you trying to walk in an environment that is normally traveled by car?

Windows often show a world that is possible, but not being directly experienced. The windows can be tricky, because they can reveal something we cannot experience directly. This can infer frustration, protection, or illusion in the dream. If dreaming of confinement, the window may expose a very desirable person or setting that we cannot experience directly. This is a common event in life.If the environment outside the window looks hostile, and you can get to the other side of the window to experience it, you may find you have been tricked. Windows in dreams sometimes show one thing, but the actual experience is something quite different. It may be time for you to overcome your anxiety and experience life directly rather than watching it go by. If the converse is true, and a pastoral window scene yields a troubled reality, you may feel as though life is deceptive in some area.

The window may be a passage from this world to others. Dreams of this nature are common among those who pursue astral projection or out-of-body experiences. Windows of this kind may be revealing potential realities for you to experience. Did you open a window in your dream, walk by one without looking, or close a window? Were the images on the other side of the window clear or murky?
