I fall asleep eyes closed to eye opening meditation,
and the unicorn horn of my frontal lobe begins to go numb,
and expand, as if my birth-born skele-skull were too small
for my brain.
And I'm in blackness, and I am a man, and I see my body
begin to lift out, a glowing blue, empty black bodied
silhouetted with bright blue.
And my cranium's rear begins to turn in on itself,
and I see a blue cap come out to pull over my head
as a hat, in a sacred Yamaka fashion,
and through my forehead burst a beam of red,
and all the regrets of the day.

According to Jung, the hat, since it covers the head, generally takes on the
significance of what goes on inside it: thought. He recalls the German saying ‘to
put all ideas under one hat’, and mentions that in Meyrink’s novel The Golem, the
protagonist thinks the thoughts and undergoes the experiences of another man
whose hat he has put on by mistake (32). Jung also points out that, since the hat
is the ‘crown’ and summit of an individual, it may therefore be said to cover him,
an idea which carries a special symbolic significance. By its shape, the hat may be
invested with specific significance; for example, that of the Minstrel in the Tarot
pack (56). To change one’s hat is equivalent to a change of mind or of ideas. The
choice of a hat—associated with a particular social order—denotes the desire to
be admitted to that set or to partake of its inherent characteristics. There are hats,
like the Phrygian cap, that have a special phallic significance, and others that can
confer invisibility (symbolic of repression).
To see or wear a hat in your dream, indicates that you are hiding an aspect of yourself or that you are covering up something. Alternatively, it represents your attitude or the various roles and responsibilities you have in your waking life.
To dream that you are wearing different hats, symbolize the many different roles you have in your waking life. Perhaps you feel you are stretched too thin and overburdened by daily responsibilities.
To dream that you are changing hats, represent your changing opinions and thoughts.
To dream that you are wearing a top hat, denotes your aspirations for wealth. It is also symbolic of male elegance and formality. If the top hat is knocked off your head, then it suggests a loss in your status of a fear that you will be stripped of your authority.
To dream of losing your hat, you may expect unsatisfactory business and failure of persons to keep important engagements.
For a man to dream that he wears a new hat, predicts change of place and business, which will be very much to his advantage. For a woman to dream that she wears a fine new hat, denotes the attainment of wealth, and she will be the object of much admiration.
For the wind to blow your hat off, denotes sudden changes in affairs, and somewhat for the worse.

In the Zohar, the ‘magic head’ stands for astral light (9); in mediaeval art
it is a symbol for the mind (46) and for the spiritual life, which explains the
frequency with which it appeared in decorative art. On the other hand, Plato in
Timaeus asserts that ‘the human head is the image of the world’. In corroboration
of this, Leblant points out that the skull, the semi-spherical crown of the human
body, signifies the heavens. Clearly, the head-symbol here coalesces with that of
the sphere as a symbol of Oneness. It had the same significance in Egyptian
hieroglyphics (19). The eagle’s head has been used as a solar symbol and an
emblem of the centre-point of emanation—that is, of the cosmic flame and the
spiritual fire of the universe (4). Two, three or four heads shown in juxtaposition
symbolize a corresponding intensification of a given aspect of head-symbolism.
Thus, the Gemini, a symbol of the duality of Nature, or of the integrating (but not
unifying) link between the two principles of creation, are represented by beings
with two heads or two faces, like the Roman Janus for example. Hecate is depicted with three heads—she is called triform for this reason—a symbolism
which may be related to the ‘three levels’ of heaven, earth and hell, as well as to
Diel’s three ‘urges of life’ (15). The juxtaposition of four heads or faces, as in the
image of Brahma the Supreme Lord, stems from the same symbolism as that of
the tetramorph (60). A factor of major importance bearing upon the symbolism of
the head is mentioned by Herbert Kühn, in his L’Ascension de l’humanité (Paris,
1958). He makes the point that the decapitation of corpses in prehistoric times
marked Man’s discovery of the independence of the spiritual principle, residing
in the head, as opposed to the vital principle represented by the body as a whole.
Kühn adds that Neolithic thought was very close to the mediaeval in its conviction that an eternal and invisible essence underlies all appearances (Plate XV).
