News Newspaper

Something that is news to you; or you have just become, or need to be, aware of; something conscious rather than unconscious; something publicly known about yourself. Publically making secret information available. People’s secrets exposed to the world.

Wanting to get your experience or thoughts into the newspaper or on TV suggests something important has impressed you.

In a dream we may be seeing newspapers as the propaganda put out to influence us for political, financial or religious reasons. They often rely on sampling techniques that reveal the trend of “opinion” or “wants” that is, of collective attitudes. On the other, they express the prejudices, projections, and unconscious complexes (mainly the power complex) of those who manipulate public opinion. It also may represent current public opinion, prejudice, race-consciousness ideas and attitudes, as well as worldly thinking.

Newspaper can be used to wrap things in, to line draws or to cover things, so suggests something like yesterdays newspaper that is no longer useful or relevant.

 Example: I had this dream at a time when there was a lot of talk and anxiety in newspapers and on television about nuclear war. In the dream a nuclear attack had been announced. I immediately thought of my children who are away in boarding school. I go out into the street to see if I can get to them, but realise it is hopeless. In the street everybody is walking about as if it were a holiday Sunday. I realised there was no time to get to my children so decided to join the people on the street. John C.

John had this dream at a time when there was a lot of media coverage about nuclear attack. It is therefore most likely dealing with his real fears about how he would deal with such an attack if it happened.

Working for a newspaper: Suggests you will be capable of a wide audience for your thoughts or work. See A Dream is Like a Seed


Useful Questions and Hints:

Do I feel that something in my life has become commonly known?

Do I feel a need to ‘spread the news’ about a situation?

Am I receiving new information or becoming aware of something I need to know?
