A woman has a variety of ways she needs to be fulfilled. That is, by being cared about, being loved sexually, having her man do something valuable socially, and having a companion of depth and width she can play and cry, work and talk with.

So a powerful woman can face a powerful man because she knows her own power. She feels within her the ability to stand as a force in the world, as well as the ability to care for her own children or even others. She acknowledges everything everything she is, from her animal within her to her human ability to take hold of the world and create, children as well as business or social functions. She has a natural religious feeling which may have nothing to do with the church or other religious bodies, but is a love of life and its creatures. She is a WOMAN.

A woman in a woman’s dream: An aspect of yourself, but often a facet of you that is not immediately identified with. See example below.

Goddess, holy or oriental woman: The dreamer’s highest potential; what she is capable of but may not yet have lived; her intuition and wisdom transcending her own personality. Something she has brought to life what lives and expresses through all life – a universal sympathy.

Older woman: Could be the dreamer’s mother; her feelings about ageing; her sense of inherited wisdom; sometimes, if you are a woman, she represents the person you are becoming.

One woman one man: Behaviour patterns arising from parental relationship.

Two women and the dreamer: Conflicting feelings or drives.

Woman’s sister and female children: Particularly used to represent herself. The character of the dream woman, loving, angry, businesslike, lazy, sexual, give a clue to what part of the dreamer it is referring to. If the dream woman is a person known well, the above can still be the case, but the woman may represent what the dreamer feels about that person.

Woman younger than the dreamer: Oneself at that age.

Woman in a man’s dream: This is fundamentally about your felt relationship with a particular woman, or women in general. What is happening in the dream will depict the aspect of relationship being illustrated. The dreamer’s present relationship with his own feelings and intuitive self; his sensitivity and contact with his unconscious through receptivity; or how he is relating to his female partner. The latter is especially so if the woman in the dream is his partner.

Old woman: Usually the dreamer’s mother. The woman, because she is his feelings, is obviously also his sexual desires and how he meets them. But very often it represent the power of experience, or old experience and wisdom. In terms of the dreamer, it can signify your own intuitive power – a power because it carries a lot of your own energy and wholeness with it. It can, in some dreams represent what you have brought to life what lives and expresses through all life – a universal sympathy.

Oriental woman in occidental dream: The aspect of mind and emotions that links the conscious personality with its unconscious transcendental wisdom and intuition, and perhaps the capacity to love.

Two women and the dreamer: An ‘eternal triangle’ situation; conflicting feelings.

Younger woman: Can depict his desires for a woman of that age, or his more vulnerable emotions.

Example: ‘I gave birth to a baby girl I named Charlotte. I had mixed emotions about this, uncertainty, excitement. I wanted to share the news with my friends. I phoned one, a woman in Australia. I told her with enthusiasm, but she listened quietly and remained silent. I felt uneasy, then she said ‘We lost Luke’ – her son – ‘the week before.’ I then woke with muddled feelings.’ Mo.

The example helps make plain how the other woman in mo’s dream is the aspect of her that is in pain and mourning. Mo explored her feelings about the dream characters. It all fell into place when she asked herself what she had ‘lost’ recently. She had left a lover of some years standing. This gave her a lot more freedom and new opportunity, depicted by the baby, but also muddled feelings of loss. Her Australian friend represents her feelings of grieving for the ‘death’ of her relationship. Her muddled feelings arise because she both loves the new life which opens up, but grieves the death of her romance.

Example: ‘On a raised mobile platform a goddess stood. I loved her and flew to her, skimming above the heads of the people. I talked to her. She told me the only love I could receive from her was that which I gave to a human woman. Inasmuch as I gave love to a human female, she would love me. She was all women.’ Andrew P.

The example shows Andrew meeting his archetypal conception of a woman, his ideal. But he understands that you cannot love an ideal. His love must find a real woman. Through a real love he would call love from out of himself, out of his unconscious reserve.

The conditions or situations of the woman, see under appropriate entries, such as illness, murder, swimming, etc. See: anima; the great mother; old wise woman – old wise man under archetypes.

I had a dream last night about a Native American woman… long black hair in braids on either side of her head running down her back, in a leather dress, moccasins, turquoise and feather jewelry around neck and wrists… walking through my pasture, past my two horses going away from my house…… there was great sense of peace… any ideas?

    ChickenLady – She passed by you – and it is a pity she didn’t stop. Because it seems that it was a guide or a touch of your spirit that came very close.

    What that means is that you have a lot of feelings for the animals and nature around you. And that allows you to be in touch with an even wider awareness of the Life of nature and what it can teach you. For the woman is an image of that, and could and can teach you.

    So call her back to you. Offer her something as a gift – some tobacco maybe. Then invite her into your home.

-keegan 2012-11-30 17:01:54

i dreamt that a native american woman in a dress made of skins was leaning over me beside my bed. her black hair hanging down. she had disappered right when i flinched at the sight. i never got to see her face very well becuz she left to fast.


    -Tony Crisp 2012-12-02 20:35:01

    Keegan – This was you seeing a spirit guide that is watching over you. Make friends with her by sending her thoughts of thanks and warmth.



      -keegan 2012-12-03 15:22:00

      how can i do that? and she has appeared to me again last night. this time she her mouth was moving but no words came out. she kept pointing at my ceiling and then at me. should i be worried? its almost as if she is warning me of something.


-brenda 2012-12-07 15:29:48

I had a dream about a black woman dressed in a white peaseant shirt and skirt and an african scarf print on her head. At first i was leary of her but then she smiled and opened her arms and she hugged me. Nearby a smile pile was moving around and when i looked it was a black happy baby. What does this mean? (i am lost on this one)


    -Tony Crisp 2012-12-09 11:37:29

    Brenda – I take it you are white skinned? If so the black woman represents your own natural self, without all the often crazy rules we put on ourselves. She is a part of you that you easily rule out of your life – I was leary of her. But you are gradually getting to know and appreciate that side of you.

    Are you thinking of becoming a mother? I ask because of the happy baby. I would suggest you try imagining yourself as her and see what you feel. Also try it with the baby. So perhaps try using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

. I just had a dream about an older lady sitting in one of my bed rooms her and it looked like her child was smoking in my house I was livid!! I asked her to leave my home and she said no she was invited. I got so angry I escorted her and the child out. What does this mean?


    -Tony Crisp 2013-09-08 12:02:53

    Tabatha – It means that you are very mixed up about what dreams and the part they play in your life. People are very confused about the difference between their waking life and their dream life. They believe that what they dream is the same as what they meet in waking life. So a dream like yours is an example of this.

    You were sure the old lady was a real outer character and wanted to get her out of your house. But a house in dreams is yourself, and the old lady is a projected part of you. Most of us interiorise our morals into our dream life. In other words we take as a truth that what is important outwardly is as important inwardly. In other words you are as upset by a dream as if it had actually happened in waking life. Such mistakes make us feel things that are ridiculous.

    This happens with the morals we live with by and may be necessary in waking life, we try to make them fit to our much bigger and freer dream/inner life and that causes conflict because the two worlds are completely different.

    So the old lady is an important part of you that needs to be recognised – even though your outer morals are rigidly against it. It will do you good to unbend a little when you realise that dreams are all about your inner world.

I had a dream I was looking at myself in the mirror and my eyes were Asian and the rest of my face. There was a friend standing next to me and she as was Asian as well. I was commenting how Asian my eyes have become.

I dreamed that I was with my family. My mother was not there (she passed away in 2009). It was nighttime and my family and I were walking outside. The moon was huge and was a silver and blue color. I pointed out the moon and the image of two women appeared in the moon. They appeared to be almost identical goddesses. They were standing next to eachother and touching hands above there heads. Neither of the women were familiar to me. I can’t figure out what this dream means. Can you help me?


-Rimotay 2014-04-05 7:08:43

I dreamed a girl that was injured and i took care of her, she was blonde, very pretty.. but she seemed to think that i was a bad person…


    -Tony Crisp 2014-04-06 9:32:00

    Rimotay – In our dreams we are all times and experiences all at once – although in waking life we usually only are one thing at a time. So the little girl is you that was hurt in some way. Because you are older. stronger and are capable of dealing with old hurts you are having this dream.

    Please use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson as it may put you in contact with the little girl in your dream.
