General: Expression of oneself, not simply ideas, but subtle feelings or realisations. Spontaneous speech or a voice that speaks through or to one: Our personality or mind is not a totally unified whole. We do no identify with some aspects of self. Because we disown them, they become split from our main expression. Contacting them may be like meeting a stranger – thus in dreams they are shown as exterior to self, or a separate voice, perhaps disembodied. Also: Some aspects of self express spontaneously – see autonomous complex. The voice may therefore be ones intuition; expression of unconscious but not integrated parts of self; fears; the Self being met in the dream.
