Dream symbols - king

Many people perform roles similar to kings. A president, a manager and a head of household all have power over others. A king dream may link to situations involving people in power or wanting power.

KINGS IN DREAMS: Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance a dream about a king may link to an issue about power. A king may describe someone's dominance over a group of any kind. It may even represent someone's dominance over a group of friends. A group of people of any kind all have a leader who speaks for them. Often there can be disputes over who is in charge. occasionally people try to take over and assert their own dominance.

We can predict that the following words and phrases might be appearing in your thoughts right now.
- "dominant male" (a king can represent anyone in a dominant position. )
- "asserting authority" (Think of any power struggles within any group or organisation. )
- "head of the family" (Anyone in a position of power in anything maybe described metaphorically as the king )
Research has shown that the key words and phrases listed here all link symbolically to kings in dreams. Try to see how these words and phrases are relevant in your thoughts right now

- "the best approach" (King dreams have been known to link to your wish to decide the best approach to something)
- "the power to make your own decisions" (Kings are about power and authority. They can link to any change in power and control. Do you fear losing control? Are you wanting to make your own decisions? Do you value your own independence)
- "a sense of power" (Kings in dreams can revolve around issues power. Did you hate someone having power to make a decision? Do you hate not being "in control?" Did you wish to grasp back the power? Do you like someone who has a lust for power?)
- "reflecting over a period of time" (Have you been thinking over your time in a job or the time you have spent somewhere. Have you been thinking how you have wasted your time? Have you been proud about your sense of achievement. A period of history is often linked to the rule of a king - for instance the rule of Henry VIII)
- "pandering to his every wish" (Are you sick of everyone pandering to someone. Do you think they are being treated like a king?)
- "someone's time in charge" (we often describe someone's time in charge or period of stay the way we describe kings in history. We say the rule of Henry VIII to describe a period of time when a king is in charge)

Its a fallacy that dreams capture unconscious thoughts - dreams represent thoughts that we are all too aware of. A typical dream would translate into the types of thoughts that we might write down in a diary or tell a best friend. Dreams represent your key thoughts which pinpoint the problems right now. Try to write down some quotes which capture your feelings right now and try to include the words and phrases above. For instance if you have been thinking about your boss and how he has spent twenty years in charge of your workplace then this may relate to the symbolism of kings. The twenty years in charge could be described as his "rule" - a term we associate with kings. Overall the dream relates to a period of history and our thoughts about this.

Dreams can represent very sophisticated thoughts. Take this dream - "There were four kings in four castles. There was some kind of competition going on to see which was the best. They were judging to see which got the best reaction". In real life the day before the dreamer had been thinking over his approach to something. He had decided to try out various approaches and see which got the best reaction. So quite clearly the dream plays out this train of thinking. The four kings and castles represent these various approaches. The strongest castle and king was symbolic of the approach which was thought best.
