Professions generally represent a comparable psychic process.  The baker provides the daily bread. He transforms unpalatable grain into a nutritious food.  The baker is the symbol for that  inner aspect of the dreamer which is responsible for spiritual nourishment.


Like the sphere, the ball is a symbol of totality; when we think of expressions like 'the terrestrial globe' or 'the orb of the sun', it becomes clear that the ball can be an image of concentrated psychic energy. It indicates processes of alteration and change.

Baptism (bath)

Baptism is the symbol of spiritual cleansing.  The dream image of baptism indicates that it has become necessary to liberate oneself from old, obstructive and incorrect attitudes.  After liberation from such obsolete attitudes, the consciousness can take a new direction.


This has the same significance in dreams as in almost all myths and fairytales, that of a symbol of change and cleansing.  The image of a bath or bathroom occurs particularly before decisive turning-points in the dreamer's life.  The water in the dream bath symbolizes spiritual energy.  Should the bath be a pool in the open air, for example, it is a thoroughly positive image.  A modern swimming-pool, on the other hand, indicates the obstacle modern civilization poses to psychic cleansing and change.


The bear appears mostly as  a helpful, motherly, earthy animal. In a woman's dream, the bear can appear as an indication of the neglected motherly side of her character.  On the other hand, the bear embodies a powerful natural force.


Generally speaking, the dream images of a bed assumes an erotic significance.  A bed which fills the whole room means that the dreamer awards sexuality too much significance in his life.  the reverse is true when the bed is too small or too narrow.


The man's belt has long been a symbol of male strength. Vital energy was thought to stem form the loins and the kidneys; in the past, vitality and sexual potency were always synonymous.  For women, the belt is a symbol of virtue and purity.


Birds live in the air, the world of the pure intellect.  Birds in a dream symbolize intellectual matters.


The process of birth in a dream is a sign for the beginning of something new.  Its symbolic meaning is, however, extremely rarely that of a real birth, even in the dreams of young women. If men dream of childbirth, it is an allusion to the origination of new ideas, career prospects, etc.


Blood is a symbol of vitality.  There still exists a general popular belief in blood's magical powers. Blood also symbolizes love and passion.  Loss of blood can indicate loss of love, but can also indicate a necessary spiritual sacrifice.  A blood transfusion can be seen as spiritual enrichment.


In the fairytale, the knight Bluebeard is a man who gives his wife the keys to all the rooms of his castle. He warns her, however, not to open one particular door.  When she defies the warning and opens the door in Bluebeard's absence, she finds the corpses of his previous wives.  Bluebeard catches her in the act, but she escapes death.  Dreams like this, in numerous modern variations, are not uncommon.
According to Jung, this dream images is one of the many manifestations of the archetype for which he coined the expression Animus.  In simple terms, this means the male element in the female personality.  In this dream, with its figure of a woman-killing villain, an unconscious aspect of the female dreamer's personality is shown - i.e. suppresses masculine traits.

Bombs & Explosions

Things of this nature are to be regarded as danger signals.  they can conjure up past war-time experiences.  They can indicate events which have caused shock.


Bread symbolizes 'the staff of life', and also spiritual invigoration. Bread always assumes a positive significance in dreams.


Whenever a bridge appears in a dream, the psyche is signaling that a difficulty can be reconciled or bridged over. however, not every bridge is traversable.  The method of construction - if for example the railing is missing or the bridge is incomplete - indicates possible dangers to the dreamer.


the bull is the symbol of male strength and potency.  Sexuality requires domination by the male intellect.  During cult festivals in Crete, it was usual that youths would grab a bull by the horns, swing onto its back and ride it.  the symbolic meaning of this sport is unmistakable. In Spain, it has been preserved up to the present day in the form of bullfights. The image of a bull is not unfavorable, as long as the dreamer sees it as an indication that corresponding psychic energy should be tamed.


We frequently find dreams in which burglaries occur or burglars appear.  With this image, the dream is expressing the invasion of the dreamer's imaginative sphere by unconscious elements.  What is being referred to here is something which has been overlooked or suppressed in everyday life.


A statistical evaluation of well over a thousand dreams showed that dreams of burials, dying and the dead are the most frequent of all.  The dream symbolism corresponds to the real-life experience  that it is often necessary for unfulfillable wishes or matters of conflict to be 'buried' once  and for all.  Of course, the image of a burial can also indicate painful experiences.  The decisive factor is the further development in the dream.  For the psyche, death represents a process of change.  Frequently something new replaces that which has been symbolically buried.


The butterfly appears in a dream as a symbol for a mind which is going astray.  the modern analogy of  a woman's butterfly mind, her flightiness and inconstancy, is very pertinent here.  Woman cannot find peace of mind unless she has experienced sexuality's spiritual significance in the union of man and woman.
