Spiritual opposition - or rather opposition to our spiritual beliefs - can generate a tremendous amount of hostility. We need to be aware that others may not necessarily agree with our beliefs. When we experience hostility within ourselves in a dream, it is often an accurate expression of an emotion we consciously have. It is simply safe to express it in a dream, whereas we may not dare do this in waking life. Hostility is one of those emotions that can be worked through within a dream itself. If we can identify what is making us feel hostile in a dream, then we can usually draw a parallel in our waking lives and deal with whatever the problem is. If the feeling is appropriate in a particular situation, and we can justify it, then we can handle it in a conscious state without confrontation. If, however, someone is being hostile towards us, it very often means that we need to be aware that we are not acting appropriately, that others may feel we are putting them in danger.
