(see also Flying)
Psychological Dream Meaning: To dream of flying can symbolise your desire to be free from problems and enjoy a more carefree and adventurous life style. Similarly, kites symbolise the same connotations except in a more controlled way. Just as a kite is tethered by a string, so you have not let go completely. It can also show how you desire to take control of your life. In England, we describe someone as ‘wanting to fly their own kite’ when they want to take control of their circumstances. The expression often relates to self-employment or the process of setting up a business.
Mystical Interpretation: To dream of flying a kite denotes a great show of wealth but if the kite crashes or the string breaks there will be financial troubles. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: Most psychologists consider the knife or dagger to be a symbol of male sexuality. It can represent the penis in its ability to penetrate. It is also representative of masculinity and its associations with violence and aggression. You may be harbouring a deep-seated destructive wish and have repressed your feelings of anger. Is it you who carries the knife or are you threatened by someone else? Identify with the possessor of the knife and discover if you are repressing angry feelings. The knife is also reminiscent of the ‘sword of truth’ that cuts through falsity and ignorance, or the will to cut away false desires.
Mystical Interpretation: They say that it is good luck to dream of a kitchen knife but all other knives predict possible danger. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: A knot may represent a problem that you’re trying to untangle. (a ‘knotty’ problem) It can also represent the union of two people or the union of the male and female aspects of the psyche. (i.e. ‘tying the knot’- a ritual that was an actual occurrence during Babylonian times when threads from the couple’s garments would be tied together).
Mystical Interpretation: Superstition has associated knots with problems. For example, at weddings the bridegroom should wear one of his shoes unlaced to foil witches from ‘untying’ his bride’s virginity. Moreover, in Scotland UK it is believed that no body should be put into a coffin with knots on any of its clothing or the spirit will never rest in peace. In dream superstitions, to dream knots means that you will meet with much to cause you anxiety Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: Your unconscious may be trying to attract your attention to something important that you are unaware of at the moment.
