Dream about the police
Police and policemen in waking life are generally not associated with us very well, because their appearance is usually triggered by some kind of threat, but also a large part of us in the presence of the police immediately begin to wonder if we are sure that we do not have something on our conscience.
Also, the appearance of the police in our dream usually fills us with a sense of uncertainty and confusion, although, of course, this depends largely on the context of our dream. After all, sometimes we dream that the police arrest us after committing some crime, while at other times they rescue us from some danger, thus giving us unspeakable relief.
Interpreting dreams about the police
Dreams in which policemen appear usually occur to us during adolescence, especially if our parents or teachers impose a number of prohibitions on us, which causes us to rebel and makes us feel as if we are under arrest. The police officers who appear in our dreams are all those people who in waking life exercise authority over us and have the right to forbid us something, thus they can be our parents, teachers, or other adults to whom we must listen to. The police can also personify our own inhibitions and limitations that we put on ourselves for various reasons.
When a dream about the police happens to us, first of all, we should consider how we get along with the police officers in the dream, as this is a reflection of our attitude to the rules imposed on us and the authority that imposed them on us. Thus, if in a dream we are positive about the police, that is, we agree to answer questions, feel remorse for the acts we have committed, and do not try to lie or run away, it means that in waking life we have respect for those who have authority over us, even if we do not always remember this and show it. On the other hand, when we don’t want to let ourselves be arrested or refuse to testify, it’s a sign that in waking life we want to control ourselves and don’t agree to have someone else’s will imposed on us.
If, on the other hand, we dream that the police catch us or punish us in some way, it means that in waking life we are accompanied by a sense of guilt, which we may not fully realize, and is caused by a deed we have committed or feelings we have even though we should not.
Interpreting dreams about the police according to Freud
Freud believed that if a motive for committing a crime appears in a dream, it is nothing more than an expression of the dreamer’s latent desire to commit such acts in waking life.
Interpreting dreams about the police according to Jung
Jung believed that if a motive for committing some crime appears in a dream, it indicates the existence of some dark inclinations inside the dreaming person, which are inherent in human nature and, as such, should be accepted.
