Old people


Old people can embody wisdom and experience of life in the dream and then admonish maybe that one should behave sensible, - they can also appear as a counsellor who give concrete recommendations. The old people sometimes behave in the dream also maliciously and often warn about own bad qualities for which they stand symbolic. The vision often shows an old person in the shape of a witch, a Qušlers or Querulanten, - here the evil is described in ourselves which we should overcome. In particular cases is to be considered whether they are own parents whose influence on the personal development or conflicts with them express, - this arises from the respective accompanying circumstances. The old woman in the way is the symbol of the ancient motherly life which spins in the fate thread. If an older woman appears in the dream, is to be checked whether it concerns, besides, a person who has played a role in the childhood of the dreaming, stood, e.g., the mother, grandmother, aunt or child minder, and in which respect the dreaming to this person or stands still. However, the old woman can also show personal qualities of the dreaming. If it is, nevertheless, an unknown old woman, it concerns after C.G.Jung the archetypal picture of the 'big mother'. An old man indicates generally that the soul of the dreamer is near a big, cleaning strength. If it concerns an unknown old man, in this case the archetypal symbol of the 'old manners is' after C. G. Jung appeared. This symbol stands for experience of life and life wisdom and is to be understood positively. There can be to the dreaming also often useful tips. If an old man or an old man appears in the dream, the known people resembles, the respect of the dreaming with this person must be considered like with old woman. From the whole dream action a negative meaning can be also picked out, perhaps if it concerns a known old man. Then the dream should be understood as a reminder to check his behaviour towards his person critically. If one sees himself as an old person, points out presumably to the fact that one sticks too much in outdated images, traditions and well-worn habits which limit the life or if one feels old himself, although one is still young, a maturation process stands before his end.
