Doctor Dreams: Why They Appeared
The images that are presented in our dreams can be translated metaphorically and applied to what is unknown to us. We must approach the symbol of the ‘doctor’ similar how we see wise figures in some of our favorite movies.
Just like Yoda is depicted in Star Wars, Mr. Myagi in The Karate Kid, or even Galadriel in Lord of the Rings; they appear during the right time during ones life to offer guidance when we are lost.
The doctor like the sage figures offer to teach, aide, and offer advice to the hero (dreamer), though in our dreams he or she will speak in a language that might be unfamiliar to you. Often times this brings your attention towards your inner world, parts of your emotions, behaviors or traits that need to be redirected. At the same time letting the dreamer choose their own path towards destiny.
Doctors in dreams provide light to the dark places in your life that you are unable to see at the moment, though you have received many clues pointing to the where the problem lies.
Doctor Dreams: Healing Power Within
Alternatively a doctors role treats its patients from the inside by giving them the proper medicine. This becomes a clue wanting you to examine what is inside that is causing an imbalance in your life.
I am sure you have heard of the saying from the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu “He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened“. In essence by finding and curing your internal sickness inside will set you free.
Just as the doctor examines inwardly and deeply, this is a symbol for you to gain further insight a different perspective of who you really are. The doctor becomes an archetype that drives us toward such self-reflection in the search for wisdom.
Similar to the hero in the movies you are on your on a journey blindly seeking help from someone who knows what’s right for you. A representation of the healing energy residing in yourself that you can trust.
Doctor Dreams: Bad News, Scared or Resisting?
We are going to jump right in the deep end and bring attention to the dark parts of your personality. Any sort of negative resistance or hearing bad news from the doctor can be attributed to the ‘shadow side‘ of the dreamer. The shadow can be defined as our unconscious behaviors, painful past experiences, instinctual urges, unwanted or the repressed feelings hide under that mask.
The shadow is often behind most of our nightmares and recurring dreams that never seems to go away. The doctor wants to help you despite how the medicine tastes, you must face your fears or inadequacy. These dream all have to do with your mind and never the body. Like most heroes on their journey they must see the sage before fighting the enemy, and in your case your own darkness.
- Anger or rage,
- Painful past memories,
- Trying to heal the inner child,
- Unconscious fears that hold you back;
- Negative behaviors, thoughts or urges.
