A 26-year-old woman sometimes dreams of passing through a jungle, where light is filtering in through the trees. Then she hears owls hooting, and she sees one big owl hover above her, before it dives and takes away a rat in its claws. When she wakes up she feels that she could well be that rat as she seemed quite small compared with that massive owl. In this dream, the feeling smallness and being carried away by an owl in the form of a rat are feelings of insignificance. It is possible that her family or friends make her feel small and this has given her an inferiority complex. She seems to be overshadowed by an important person in her life. The dream is a more or less a portrayal of her tendency to give in to the superiority of that person. In this case the woman needs to develop her self-esteem. Once this happens and she manages to overcome her feelings of inferiority, such dreams of being overpowered would soon cease.
