Young daughter raped - dream analysis

Dreams use symbols as a way of expressing your strength of feelings. If a dream uses rape as a symbol it is likely to link to some strong feelings.

THE DREAM I dreamt that my 3 yr old daughter got raped by someone we knew. I only say someone we knew because of the feeling in the dream. I never once saw his face. I was upset, mortified, but more than anything I felt I let her down. I was supposed to protect her from all bad & I couldn't. Now she was still very much alive but not the same. Like she lost her joy or her whole being.

GUESSWORK The day before the dreamers daughter was asking questions that she should not know anything about. This upset the dreamer who wanted to keep her little and innocent.

ASSOCIATIONS AND SYMBOLIC MEANINGS
1. Rape can represent any kind of bad emotions or situations. It can associate with situations which humiliate the dreamer. Its a nasty act which defiles a person. In this case it could easily represent the dreamers worries the day before that her daughter had grown up too quickly and was asking questions about an adult world that she should know nothing about.

DREAM ANALYSIS In guesswork the dream was linked to the dreamers worries about her daughter. The dream deals with the following themes
- Her daughter being 'spoiled'

If you weave together the different themes you find that they could capture this thought that the dreamer was thinking at the time-"My daughter was asking some questions which she should not know anything about. I just worry about this. It spoils her upbringing as I want her to stay all innocent."
