Dream meaning » struggle

To dream of a struggle indicates that you are experiencing some internal conflict. You are making a bigger issue out of something than it needs to be.

To dream of struggling, foretells that you will encounter serious difficulties, but if you gain the victory in your struggle, you will also surmount present obstacles.

In the mystic sense, there is no activity other than spiritual movement towards evolution and salvation; any other form of activity is merely agitation and not true activity. On this point, the West is in full accord with the East, for, according to the doctrine of Yoga, the highest state (sattva), characterized by outward calm, is that of greatest activity (the active subjugation of the lower impulses and their subsequent sublimation). Thus, it is not surprising that Cesare Ripa, in his Iconologia, through a process of assimilation with the exalted images of the Archangel St. Michael and of St. George, represents ‘Virtuous Action’ as a warrior armed in a gilt cuirass, holding a book in one hand and in the other a lance poised ready to be thrust into the head of a huge serpent which he has just vanquished. The head of Vice, crushed under his left foot, completes the allegory. Hence, every struggle or victory on the material plane has its counterpart in the realm of the spirit. Thus, according to Islamic tradition, the ‘Holy War’ (the struggle against the infidel, depicted with weapons held at the ready) is simply an image of the ‘Great Holy War’ (the struggle of the faithful against the Powers of Evil).
