Male Man

One of the simplest meanings a man in your dream has is that he portrays your relationship, your feelings about, or responses to, a relationship with a man. The man in your dreams in nearly always an aspect of your own feelings, hopes and fears. Even if it is someone you know well, the dream image is never that person. It is certainly an image you have built out of your memories, your views of that person, your likes, dislikes and insights, the pains or pleasures, the things you learned in relationship with that man.

The man in your dreams in nearly always an aspect of your own feelings, hopes and fears. Even if it is someone you know well, the dream image is never that person. It is certainly an image you have built out of your memories, your views of that person, your likes, dislikes and insights.

The man is in general the polarisation of thought, of activity in the world, of invention and doing, even if you are a woman, you have these qualities that will probably be dreamt of under the image of a man.

In general a person in a dream shows one of your own character resources or problems, depending upon how you relate to the character. Each character trait is a part of the your repertoire of behaviour. If you are at odds with the person in the dream or threatened by him or her, then the trait dominates you rather than you being able to use it without fear. An important point is that the dream image of the person or object summarises the trait. Through the image the you can access the resources of the trait. Therefore it is an image of power. See Being the Person or Thing

Most people are often totally unaware of the experience they take in and how it interacts with them when we love someone or have lived with them. In other words the memories and experience we gather unconsciously change us and are not lost. It is part of you and is symbolised in dreams as a person or event. You have taken in millions of bit of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences along with all the feelings or problems met by loving and living with someone and they are what makes you the person you are. Your dreams tend to put all that in the image of the past person when you are dealing with the influences left in you from the relationship. Please read this wonderful example, it will show how much we take in from those we love or lived with.

In a woman’s dream: The man might represent your felt relationship with a particular man, or males in general. In this sense the man portrays the power of your own womanhood, indicating whether you can meet male energy with your full female energy. The man might also represent your ability to question social conventions and to attack issues with thought.

In a man’s dream: An aspect of your own character traits.

Man in black: Usually represents something we fear or a part of us we are largely unconscious of, but is coming to awareness if we allow it.  See shadow 

Mysterious Man: The mystery man can be a way of describing the mysterious life process or higher self. It can be scary because we are not, in civilised cultures, in touch with Life but are frightened of it. Nothing can hurt you in a dream, so even if you fear the man is dangerous, it is only your emotions clothed in a dream image. See What we Need to Remember About Dreaming.

Old man: This might depict some aspect of the relationship with your father, or it might be a form of wisdom you are meeting.

Half animal man: Urges and aspects of yourself that have not yet been socialised, or are at odds with today’s form of social life. See Ape-man Half man Half Monster

    Jean – Thank you so much for writing.

    I would love to know more about what you do with the book to help people with their dreams. It isn’t that I have a critical eye, but I could learn from any dreams you have found an insight into. Do you use your intuition?

I have been having dreams about being a man well young adult and I’m a 3 year old girl. In my dreams I am always portrayed as a male young adult with black hair and blue eyes, I have been having these dreams probiley my whole life but I have only just relised that they have become quite violent. In one dream I (as the boy) was being attacked because I had done something wrong I don’t remeber what and I was begging and pleading for him to stop hurting me and nothing would make him stop. I am not angry at anyone, sad/depressed , or taking any medication. Every dream I have I am the boy and I am being hurt in some way I don’t understand what’s going on. Hopefully you can shine some light on my predictiment please. Ps my dreams before I was still the boy but I was happy and no harm was going on.

Tony, every woman should tag this article and read and re-read it every time they dream of a man, I think. Is there no end to the good help in Dreamhawk? It seems endless.

As a 50-yr-old woman dreamer, I want to add that these men of ours may be more numerous and more varied in person than, perhaps, the men in a man’s dream. Yes, over time, one of the men might dominate, but I don’t believe he is necessarily the most important. The stranger may be absolutely as vital to our female Life as the “husband.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your wisdom through this website. ~Kecia

    Kecia – Thank you so much for what you said. It means a great deal to me that I am not simply pouring out rubbish.

    As usual when someone comments on an entry that was written ages ago – probably back in 2010 – I read through it again and usually add things to it to bring it up to date. This time I added a paragraph of what we carry within us from any relationship.

    In fact I have added it to my facebook page, so thanks again.
