articles metaphysics Aug 18, 2020

Is your subconscious trying to send a message? Dreams, they say, can be a compelling means of gaining insight about who you are. A dream guide will help you interpret the message your dream is trying to send. 

Most of the time, people look at their dreams as a whole and try to get a message from there. However, what people fail to see is that every detail of your dream that you remember plays a significant role in the entire message. 

No matter how small or seemingly insignificant the detail, as long as you remember it, a dream analyzer can tell you what it means. 

What Do Dreams Mean?

There remains to be no universal translation of dreams or concrete meanings of what every dream means. However, the repetition of dream symbols over the years have become very significant in getting the message across.

How do you read into your dreams? What is it trying to say? Looking into common symbols can help you interpret your dream. They can help you find a useful message sent by your subconscious.

What is your subconscious trying to tell you? Your dreams will let you know. 

Every dream is empowering, no matter how they manifest. If you are unable to decode what they mean, you are unlocking your potential to understand yourself. The release of those negative thoughts that seem to hold you back can liberate you.

You can be in a happier disposition. The spiritual meaning of dreams can help you attract good things. After all, the law of attraction says you attract what you put out into the universe. 

What Is Your Dream Trying To Say?

What do dreams tell you? What does your dream mean? These are perhaps some of the most important questions that people ask. 

Here are some common dream symbols. Perhaps you'll be able to interpret them yourself!

Animal Dreams

Did you know that dreaming about bugs or animals means that your survival instincts are much stronger at the moment? It represents your secure connection to nature. 

You might have repressed feelings of fear or aggression if you dreamt about being chased by a predator. 

Alternatively, it could also mean that you're being pursued by something you are too afraid to face in real life. This could include negative thoughts or people in your immediate environment. All of these could be something you find too challenging to escape from

To help you deal with it, look into the qualities of the bug or animal that you dreamed about. What strength does it represent? Maybe that could be something you could use more. 

Body Dreams

Did you know that most of your dreams about buildings or structures like cars and other vehicles are representative of your body? Cars, boats, houses, airplanes are just a few of the many things that could be sending a message about your body.

They are representatives of what you have in your consciousness, as well as in your subconscious. Take note that you will not often find yourself in your dreams. Oftentimes, the different details of your dreams play out a part of who you are. 

Have you ever dreamt of a house and its poor condition? If you did, then you should take it as a hint that you might need to look at your own health. 

It could also direct you to look into your emotions. They are, after all, linked to the health of certain parts of your body. 

Dreams Of Movement

Have you dreamt of falling or flying? When you're traveling, moving house, or any kind of movement in your dream plays a significant role in your subconscious message. 

Take note of how the movement is making you feel. Oftentimes, these movements in your dream represent the feeling of being unsettled. It is linked to your need to recognize who you are and what you need. 

Sometimes, dreams are a way of your inner self to send you a message of concern. What is your soul's purpose? What can lead you to find your ultimate happiness?

Sometimes, the movement that you find in your dreams represents people in your life you cannot seem to let go of. There are times when they become behaviors that you can take on to release emotions to finally feel stable. 


Most dreams that people have are laced with some kind of fear. And while meditation can help control these fears, your subconscious sometimes takes control and releases them in your dreams. 

It could help if you recognize that your mind comes with different layers to help you look into which one is holding you back. Nightmares can sometimes be manifestations of how your fears can be holding you back. Maybe you have been too afraid to take risks, and that fear has been keeping you from making your biggest dreams come true. 

When nightmares happen, it could be yourself reminding you that you don't have to live with those fears. It could be a gentle reminder from the universe that you can have your freedom back, but you have to allow yourself to embrace it.

Dreams Of Love

Dreams about love and romance are a common occurrence. However, they do not mean that you have special feelings for the person who appeared in your dream. That could be a possibility too. 

When you dream of love, it means you have the inner desire waiting for you to explore. It means they are trying to come on the surface of your life. 

It could be a reminder, too, that you have not been truly happy with your decisions lately. It is trying to tell you that you are going for something that you don't really like. What do you do then?

Take a moment to listen to what your heart truly desires.
