Dream Rubrics: Being Chased/Hiding

I often times have dreams of someone trying/wanting to kill me, then I run and work at finding a place to hide.
I then HIDE to save my life.
What are the rubrics for this?

My other prominent dreams are of people from my past. I'll be on a plane and a cousin I wasn't close to will be there. I'll be in a store and my grandma that died will be there. I'll be walking in a forest and a close friend from high school will be sitting somewhere.

Using dreams in homoeopathy is not simple. In most cases you cannot just go to the repertory and look up the dream directly. You need to break the dream down into its components, looking at the emotions, feelings, the pace of the dream. Dreams usually reflect the deepest disturbance/delusion/beliefs of the patient, and just like sorting through the conscious stuff, you need to really examine it closely and understand it in a way that is not superficial.

What you will often find, is that the feeling in the dream, is actually better covered by a rubric found elsewhere in the repertory eg. the Mentals, the Delusions, the Fears, the Generals, Appetite and Thirst and so on. This is because dreams reflect the core problem of the patient in an uncompensated form.

The other problem with dreams is that they are often highly symbolic, and the symbolism needs to be understood in relation to the individual having the dream. Just taking the symbols as direct symptoms does not usually help in finding the remedy.

Wow. That is a wonderfully thoughtful reply. Thank you.
I will look over this.
I'm a new homeopathy student.
Your answer is thought provoking.

Ask anything you like, I love answering questions about materia medica and philosophy. I taught homoeopathy for several years and continue to mentor new homoeopaths when they leave college.
