The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • unpleasant feelings in enclosed places: a very frequent syndrome of the prenatal experience that forms a our relationship to the world; for more on this interesting phenomenon see the Basic Perinatal Matrix archetype.
  • unpleasant feelings and threats in an enclosed space or room: in most cases this is an allegory of the womb during contractions; i.e. and a recollection of the drama of birth with which everyone's consciousness is psychologically imprinted; the only question is when this content will emerge from within; the Basic Perinatal Matrix archetype describes the entire process.
  • of safety, peace and harmony in enclosed spaces or rooms: clearly the dreamer's prenatal memory of being in his mother's womb (see Basic Perinatal Matrix archetype).
  • fear of an enclosed space: this almost always relates to the birth experience and to the second phase of the birth process in which the hitherto harmony of the fetus is disrupted by the mechanical contractions of the womb; the birth canals are closed and any future contractions of the womb restrict the supply of blood to the fetus (see Basic Perinatal Matrix archetype).
