Teddy Bear

Desire for comfort, sympathy and love, of a nature that cannot hurt or answer back. Childhood traits and emotions. See: Doll; Softtoys.

Baby or toy bear: Often represents a child or a young dreamer.

Example: ‘I was watching my teddy bear go to the toilet. It fell down and disappeared.’ Jackson S.

Jackson was very young and just learning to sit on the toilet by himself. His dream shows him meeting the fear of falling down it. He has seen things disappear for ever, and this disturbs him. He uses his bear as himself. This aspect of toilet can depict the magical, hidden, or unseen world into which we disappear in sleep – the unconscious.
