Is it yours or someone else's?  

Are you wearing the wedding dress? Then you may be trying to sort out your feelings about your own relationship.  

Is someone else wearing the dress? Then you may be feeling insecure.  

If people are dressed in white or happy colors, it's a good sign for joy. Dark clothes - not so much. 

If the man you're wearing is old and wrinkly, you may have to prepare for illness.

Dreaming of a brother-figure may represent rivalry and kingship at the same time.  

Is it an actual brother, or one you wish you had?  

Older or younger? 

What were you doing? 

An older brother may symbolize wisdom and experience, a younger one vulnerability and immaturity. 

Do you wish for someone to be in your corner, defend you, take your side? Do you wish to be more extraverted?  



Dream Symbol Doors

found on Doors may represent openings in your body and therefore may relate to sexual intimacy.

What condition are the dream-doors in? Are they open or closed? Perhaps locked? A barricaded door may symbolize your need for self protection.

If someone is knocking on the door, are you letting them in or not?

Running through different doors may show you're trying to find solutions to a problem. A door connection outer and inner worlds may represent the connection between your conscious and unconscious.

If a door is missing, keep looking at your situation from different angles until you find a way.



Dream Symbol Sunday: Hearts!

heart dream symbol doodleSeeing a heart in your dream signifies the center of your being, your emotional wisdom, or a close loving relationship. If you're seeing your own, there may be sickness and energy-loss waiting for you.

Eating one may mean you wish you consume or be consumed by a loved one.

If you feel one beating it can indicate nervousness and a warning, or perhaps you're fancying someone.

PS happy anniversary, babe!





Dream Symbol blueHi folks, and welcome to Dream Symbol Sunday, where we look at a different dream image – you guessed it – every Sunday. :-) Think your dreams are black and white? Go to bed tonight asking your subconscious to remember the colors in the morning. Today's symbol is blue. The color that represents truth, serenity, and intellect, but also distance and infinity.

If you're seeing blue water, the water probably represents your subconscious. In general, the darker the color, the deeper you're peaking.

Here's a quote from Dr. John Beebe, noted Jungian Analyst:

C.A. Meyers says that the type code is absolute. You can find it in two of Jung’s essays. One is a study in the process of individuation, and the other is concerning mandala symbolism, and there somewhere in the text, or in one case even in the footnotes you find this color code, and the color code is red for feeling, blue for thinking, green or brown for sensation, and yellow for intuition. Is this absolute? I rather like it. It does seem to work more of the time than not. I particularly like it when bad colors come up in dreams, for instance, a bad yellow. That always suggests to me that we are dealing with an inferior intuition rather than a superior. I suppose both number and color refer to extremely primal experiences. We all have the experience of numbers of things, we all have the experience of colors, and we are dealing here with extremely archetypal realities. The association of color with psychological type is a very, very puzzling thing. It seems to say that the types are not only particular, but they are extremely peculiar. We have extremely peculiar natures. Obviously a red shirt is not a yellow shirt. The character of the shirt is different, and a red wall is not a blue wall. It seems to me that when we use color symbolism to indicate type, there is an attempt to empathize the style of the consciousness, that the consciousness has a certain style, and has a certain overall impact and effect.




Dream Symbol butterfly Hi folks, and welcome to Dream Symbol Sunday, where we look at a different dream image – you guessed it – every Sunday. :-)

Today's symbol is the butterfly. Ever dreamt of one of them? Or perhaps many?

In a dream, butterflies can represent many things, for example feelings of being carefree, light of heart, joy, and good luck. They can also represent unreliability, unsteadiness, and infidelity.

If you see yourself as a butterfly, this may be a message that you're living your life without really giving it a thought. Anything you'd like to change about that?

Sweet dreams!



Hiding behind a wall

Dream symbol hiding behind a wallHi folks, and welcome to Dream Symbol Sunday, where we look at a different dream image - you guessed it - every Sunday. :-) Have you ever dreamt you were hiding behind a wall? Standing up, sitting down, crouching over, any variation?

Looking for protection behind a wall can signify many things, and one explanation may be that you're hiding heartache and sorrow about from those around you.
