I was at my ex-husbands house. I entered the kitchen and turned to see a small person enter the kitchen. It looked like a little old lady with a handkerchief around her head. When she took it off, I noticed it was a goblin. While I was distracted by the goblin I felt something behind me lift me up by my collar. I saw a cord trying to be inserted into my back. I began to fight it and the goblin. The goblin kept taking on the disguise of my youngest daughter but every time I asked what is your purpose here it would show what it really was and get aggravated. There was then my youngest daughter and this thing disguised as her. They went into the back yard into the empty pool and began to fight. There were people surrounding the pool watching them below. I tried to stop it and my older daughter was sitting there and said it was o.k. that all those watching were healers. I've felt disturbed ever since I have had this dream.
To see a goblin in your dream, refers to a negative person who is working against you. Or it may mean that you have a self-defeatist attitude. You are already setting yourself up for failure.
A small hideous and often mischievous or evil spirit. The prefix "hob' is sometimes used to denote "good" goblins. In French folklore, goblins are wandering spirits who attach themselves to households, where they alternately help and plague the residents, depending on their whims. Goblins live in grottoes but, are attracted to homes with beautiful children and lots of wine. When they move in, they help by doing household chores by night and disciplining the children; giving them presents when they are good and punishing them when they are haughty. Goblins have an unpredictable, mischievous nature. On some nights, rather than doing chores, they will keep everyone awake by banging pots and pans, moving the furniture knocking on walls and doors, and snatching bed covers off of sleeping persons. Goblins who become bothersome can be persuaded to leave by scattering flax seed on the floor . The sprites get tired of cleaning it up every night and decide to depart for more hospitable surroundings.
Mystics have always traditionally considered the feminine aspect of
the universe as a chest, a house or a wall, as well as an enclosed garden. Another
symbolic association is that which equates the house (and the above, related
forms) with the repository of all wisdom, that is, tradition itself (4). In architectural symbolism, on the other hand, the house carries not only an overall symbolism but also particular associations attached to each of its component parts.
Nevertheless, the house as a home arouses strong, spontaneous associations with
the human body and human thought (or life, in other words), as has been confirmed empirically by psychoanalysts. Ania Teillard explains this by pointing
out that, in dreams, we employ the image of the house as a representation of the
different layers of the psyche. The outside of the house signifies the outward
appearance of Man: his personality or his mask. The various floors are related to
the vertical and spatial symbols. The roof and upper floor correspond to the head
and the mind, as well as to the conscious exercise of self-control. Similarly, the
basement corresponds to the unconscious and the instincts (just as sewers do, in
symbols pertaining to the city). The kitchen, since this is where foodstuff is
transformed, sometimes signifies the place or the moment of psychic transmutation in the alchemical sense. The intercommunicating rooms speak for themselves. The stairs are the link between the various planes of the psyche, but their
particular significance depends upon whether they are seen as ascending or descending. Finally, there is, as we have said, the association of the house with the
human body, especially regarding its openings, as was well understood by
Artemidorus Daldianus (56).

All combats are the expression of a conflict of some sort. A great many
fights, dances and simulacra are rites, or the vestiges of rites, which express
situations of conflict. In Sweden, according to Eliade, combats are enacted on
horseback by two sets of riders personifying winter and summer. Usener ascribed
a similar meaning to the combat between Xanthos and Melanthos—the fair one
and the dark one. On the other hand, the struggle may correspond to the primordial, cosmogonic sacrifice, such as the sacrifice of Tiamat (or Tiawath) by Marduk.
Struggles between the gods of vegetation and of drought (such as Osiris and Set)
or between good and evil (Ahuramazda and Ahriman or Angramainyu, for example) modify the plane of conflict accordingly. Broadly speaking, the struggle is
that of generation or involves antithetically opposed elements (17). For our part,
we would suggest that the combats of Roman gladiators reflected an ancestral,
mythic and symbolic background with the retiarius (or net-fighter) as the counterpart of Neptune and Pisces (symbolic of the celestial ocean, and the all-embracing god armed with the trident, as a sign of triple power, and with the net);
likewise, the mirmillo was Cancer (the sun, or the son armed with a sword).
