Dreams starting with H

Halloween

Their are two separate representations of the Halloween imagery in our dream landscape, which are nevertheless fundamentally connected. The first concerns our childhood ability to fulfill role playing in the form of costumes and disguises.

Hand

Hands represent ones absolute manipulation of the world around them. In fact, the latin root of the word manipulation is ‘movement of hands’. Moreover, a person ‘handles’ situations, which means that person either fixes or copes with the problem at ‘hand’. Naturally, we see how hands are fundamental archetypes of our behavior.

Harvest

The symbolism of the Harvest is highly dependent on the weather found in the season. A cold spring and summer may leave hard soil and feeble growth, representative of sickness and cold, distant emotionalism. On the other hand, a hot, wet season may bring forth a sturdy and robust harvest indicating good health.

Head

The Head possesses six crucial characterizations, one being the mind, the second the face, and the last four being the individual eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Appropriately, we need to determine which aspect of the head is pinpointed in the dream imagery and examine the symbolism of that respective ‘part’.

Heat

Heat is associated physically with light, as love is associated with intuitive knowledge and organic life with the instrumentality of the spirit. According to Plutarch, heat and light were set in motion by the Sun, just as were the intellectual and vital principles, blood and breath, by the heart.

Heaven

In the dream sense, the Heaven landscape, or perfect bliss, primarily symbolizes compensation, and consequently escape, from our imperfect and harsh reality. However, every so often, a dreamer may be depicting harmony and fluid movement in his or her actual waking experience. Dreams often serve as reflections of our more passionate moods.

Hedgehog

This creature, which occupied so prominent a place in ancient Irish mythology, plays a corresponding role in many of the myths of central Asia. In short it is a culture-hero linked to the period when the wandering Turko-Mongol nomads adopted a sedentary life-style.

Heliotrope

This plant symbolizes either the Sun in its daily course or the movement of light radiating from the Sun. Its delicate perfume makes it a symbol, too, of intoxication, with mysticism as much as with love or glory.

Hell

The connotation of the Heel involves power and subservience. In the sense of the foot which crashes down with authority, we see control (of mother, primarily). In this Freudian sense, we witness a correlation with sexual commands and domination in general.

Herbs

Herbs are a symbol of all that cures and brings back to life, since they restore health, virility and fertility. To Christians, medicinal herbs owed their efficacity to the fact that they were first found on Calvary.

Hero

The archetype of a Hero/ine refers to an outside force which has the ability to save us from evil. The hero/ine provides physical and psychological courage in place of our own mortal vulnerability. Hero-cults were exceedingly rare in Ancient Egypt.

Heron

The white heron is the Toltec hieroglyphic for Atzlan, the primeval island Atlantis. With stork and ibis, the heron is a snake-killer, and all three are therefore regarded as anti-Satanic creatures, fighting evil, and consequently as symbols of Christ.

Hippopotamus

Symbolically interpreted, this description embraces all those human impulses and vices which the individual cannot master, affected by original sin. This enormous lump of flesh needs God’s grace if it is to raise itself through spiritualization.

Hole

The concept of a Hole, or absence of space, involves the double-sided reality of the unknown. As such, a hole may be something we fall through, or conversely, a hole may be a void which allows us to see another landscape of reality, (other than the one in which we are now fixed).

Honey

Mythologically, honey is the food of gods. Eating it in a dream may therefore mean participating in divine consciousness - which in psychological terms means that total awareness that results from assimilating the unconscious.
