Lameness in the spiritual sense suggests the imperfection of creation, when an imperfect world is formed. Haephestos, one of the forge gods, was lamed when he was thrown out of heaven by his father Zeus. To be aware that someone else is lame has two meanings. If the person is known to us, we need to be aware of their vulnerability and uncertainty. If they are not known, it is more likely to be a hidden side of ourselves, which is insecure or perhaps damaged. If the left side is damaged the sensitive side is affected, if the right, then the more assertive side is in trouble. Dreaming of being lame suggests a loss of confidence and strength. If we ourselves are lame there can be a fear of moving forward or a fear of the future. You might like to consult the entry for Limp.
