Dream symbols - littleboy

LITTLE BOYS IN DREAMS:Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance a "little boy" dream may simply translate into the words "childish enthusiasm" and the dream captures the dreamers enthusiasm the previous day. The little boy represents the dreamers enthusiasm - he was as enthusiastic as a little boy. In fact the dream captures these key thoughts - "I really enjoyed working on my project. I was full of ideas and playing around with new concepts". Obviously a little boy dream could have several different symbolic meanings connected to other themes such as "vulnerability" (little boys are often vulnerable). Also the dream may relate to some thoughts the previous day when you were thinking of your own or someone else's childhood. Try to think which symbolic meaning applies to you most then try to look for other connections to your dream.

In practice little boy dreams have several symbolic meanings. Here is the full list.
- "childish enthusiasm" (Dreams will often us symbols because they express our thoughts. A dream of a young child maybe the minds way of saying "I was really enthusiastic about my project yesterday". Did someone show childish enthusiasm yesterday?)
- "little boy lost" (Little children are often very lost and in need of help. Did you have little boy lost look to you yesterday? Did you wish that someone would come and sort your problems out?)
- "childlike belief" (Young children often think in simple ways expressing very idealistic or naive thoughts. Did you have a very idealistic moment yesterday which was maybe a little naive? Did you express a somewhat naive belief in something or someone yesterday?)
- "innocent or cute" (Did someone do something "cute" yesterday? Were you struck by someone's innocence?)
- "treated like a little boy" (Did you feel treated like a little boy yesterday? Have you been treating a male like a little boy? Has your teenage son shown signs of real immaturity? )
- "thinking of someone's childhood" (Has your little boy now grown into a teenager? Do you miss the fun you used to have with him? Are you not ready to lose your little boy wish he would not grow up so quickly? Were you thinking of your own childhood yesterday? Were you thinking about someone childhood yesterday? Maybe you were thinking of how someone became the way that they are.)
- "baby boy growing into a little boy" (Dreams will often note changes. Has your baby boy grown into a little boy? Do you need to be wary of him moving around more because he manages to open doors?)
- "being responsible for a child" (Do you work with children? Are you a social worker who has responsibility for the welfare of children? Are you looking after someone else's child)
- "vulnerable" (A little boy maybe your minds way of expressing feelings of vulnerability. Did you feel especially vulnerable yesterday? Do you know a male who is vulnerable? Did you used to be very vulnerable but now you are more secure and happy? Think of any connection to vulnerability - if you can think of something then your dream may link to it.)

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.

Dreams can represent very sophisticated thoughts. Take the following dream - "I had a dream that two little boys were sharing their toys. The dream had a nice childlike feel to it". In real life the dreamer had been thinking about his friend and how they helped each other out - this was pleasant feeling. Dreams will sometimes capture exact emotions and in this case the dream captured this thought - "I know my friend would help me out in a crisis. I am starting to realise how supportive he is. He is a genuine friend". We can deduce this by looking at the dreamers state of mind and thinking about the obvious message of the dream. This was a moment of meaning in the dreamers life as he recognised how supportive his friend was.
