About Nancy Wagaman, M.A.
Dream Symbol: ogre
A scary ogre is after you can mean that you feel someone is threatening you in real life—emotionally, mentally, or physically—or that you're having a Toxic Dream.
A friendly ogre can represent confronting or even "making friends with" your fears, or with some aspect of self or life situation that you previously found distasteful or inferior, or with an aspect of yourself you've been judging but now are accepting more.
Dreaming that you are the ogre can mean that you are deepening your sense of self-empathy and self-support, or that you are judging yourself harshly (depending on how you feel about being an ogre).

Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
