What do your night-time visions reveal about your destiny? Read on to find out…
Dreams are like messages from your unconscious mind and are a powerful way to tap into your inner world. Here’s your ultimate guide to decoding them so you can discover what their reoccurring themes and symbols mean…
To see a famous actor in your dream indicates that you are in pursuit of hedonistic experiences. Consider also who this actor/actress is and what characteristics you associate with them – are they features you’d like to see in yourself? Try to remember the role they were playing – how did they interact with other characters in your dream, and how does this relate to you? If, in your dream you were the actor, fate has recognised that you’ve been working hard recently, and this labour will be rewarded with success very soon. It also indicates your strong desire to be recognised and acknowledged in your career.
To see a balloon slowly descending in your dream indicates that your hopes are dwindling regarding success in luck and love. A situation in your life may take a downward turn, so you will need strength to build things back up again. Contrastingly, to dream that a balloon is being inflated or carried around, or even flying in a hot air balloon, is a representation that you are on the up and realising your aspirations, goals and ambitions.Balloons also express a desire to escape, a celebration or a need to express your inner child. Does the balloon pop? This could symbolise an unrealised goal, or a need to let go of stresses in your life. It could also represent your desire to fulfil your spiritual needs.
If you’re lucky enough to envision a burning candle in your dream, this is a sign that good luck and hope will be coming your way! A burning candle is also symbolic of intellect, awareness and a search for truth. You may be seeking spiritual enlightenment, or want to speak up about a situation that means a lot to you. If you try to light the candle, but fail to in the dream, you may be going through a period of unhappiness. Try to ensure you surround yourself with positive things in your waking life to counteract this symbol. If you blow a candle out, or watch the flame from one being extinguished, this may indicate that you don’t let the real you shine through and that you are failing to reveal your true colours. Don’t hide in the shadows – let go of what is holding you back.
To dream of a dark place represents negativity and difficult emotions. Consider whether you’re having to tackle troublesome feelings of fear, anger or jealousy in your waking life. Darkness washing over you can also symbolise worry or stress, or a fear of loss – whether it’s over your possessions, or a loved one. If your night-time visions feature moments of pitch black, you may be experiencing times of stress or uncertainty in life. Try to find out what they are and act upon them in a positive way. Following this change in approach, if your next dream involves light or the sun removing darkness, your fear and worries are vanishing.
If you envision getting engaged while sleeping, this indicates your readiness for emotional and psychological commitment. This may be linked to your current romantic situation, a promise you have made to a close friend, or your aspirations for the future. If your dream includes an engagement ring, it is highlighting a promise that is still pending. Consider what you want to make permanent in your life. If the ring is flawed or damaged, you may need to remove the rose-tinted glasses, as all is not as perfect as it seems.
A fairy in a dream represents a special person who you tend to turn to whenever you need help or a shoulder to cry on. They help you reduce problems and stay positive, and can also reflect strong feelings. Think about who this person could be in your waking life. A fairy can also indicate naïve or deluded beliefs. Your soul is trying to tell you that your problems will not go away magically of their own accord. To dream of a fairy who is nasty may refer to a negative personality trait that you need to work on.
If you visualise a garden while you dream, something meaningful is developing in your life, referring to new skills and projects that will take time to grow and nurture. It could also link to a future moment in which you have an opportunity to enjoy a new learning experience, or teach another person. Does the garden contain flowers? This indicates personal time that you are spending on yourself as you bloom into a more confident person. If the garden contains fruits, you are in love and enjoying your romantic side. If vegetables are featured, you need to take responsibility for things in your life. To dream of a flooded garden may reflect a feeling of being overwhelmed with work – it’s time to take a break!
To dream of spiritual healing may represent an area of your life that needs rebuilding, or is being restored following hurt. You may experience feelings of renewed change following the dream. Consider whether there’s also a situation in your life where you need to make amends. Healing in a dream may also reflect progress or difficulties that you are moving on from, or an actual healing process you are experiencing in real life following emotional or physical injury. Negatively speaking, dreaming of healing may be a sign that you are having difficulties processing change or moving on from a relationship. You may also be having difficulty finding the time or resources to rectify a situation. Consider spiritual healing to help you through these tough times.
Being invisible in your night visions represents feelings of not being noticed, recognised or acknowledged. Are you sweeping anything under the carpet in your waking life? Your dream’s message could also refer to problems you’d prefer not to deal with. Alternatively, being invisible may also link to a situation in which you are keen to get away with something without being noticed. It may also reflect your feelings of being an unseen observer or not wanting to get involved. Perhaps you’re trying to withdraw from a situation or the realities of life. A holiday could be on the cards!
