The meaning of Sight in dream | Dream interpretation


Dreams are an overwhelmingly visual experience and Freud generally treated dream images as signs. Signs are images that point to something else. Freud believed the unconscious was purposely hiding the meaning of the images from our conscious minds. He believed that dreams contained a secret, hidden key and that once this key was slipped into the lock keeping a dream’s meaning from you, almost everything could be seen to have a connection with sex, death, taboo and incest. Jung, on the other hand, treated dream images as symbols intent on bringing healing to the psyche. Images, when treated as symbols, are images which have meaning in and of themselves. He believed the unconscious was purposely trying to speak to us, in order to bring forth a sense of wholeness and added meaning to our lives. For Jung, our nightly dreams were not trying to hide anything from us but trying to communicate with us.

Many dream analysts today regard the images we ’see’ in dreams as a symbolic reflection of aspects of the dreamer’s life, in particular their attitudes and responses. By taking time to consider what it is that you are ’seeing’ in your dream and the impressions involved, you can ’see’ or become aware of what the dream is getting you to look at regarding yourself or your life. The ’view’ you have in a dream, the environment you see, reflects how you see your life and yourself at the time of the dream. It shows how limited or wide your ’vision’ is. Being looked at in a dream suggests seeing yourself from their point of view or from a point of view that is not your own.

If you have a dream in which you are searching for something, this typically indicates an attempt to find something in waking life; perhaps a past way of life, a person from the past, an answer to a problem or a sense of identity; it may also indicate a feeling of having lost something valuable, such as your youth, energy or motivation.

If you are searching for someone in your dream, you may be conscious of your loneliness and if you are searching for something but do not know what it is, this could represent an unfulfilled need or a spiritual hunger.

If a searchlight appears, this indicates concentration and focused attention. It can also indicate insight into an important matter in your waking life.

Said to be the windows on the soul, the eyes are instruments of unconscious communication as well as vision.

If you found yourself gazing into someone’s eyes in your dream, your unconscious may have been mirroring your sense of seeing eye to eye with someone in your waking life. But if you find you cannot meet someone’s eye in your dream, you may be feeling guilty about something you have said or done.

If the color of someone’s eyes caught your own eye in your dream, pay attention to the symbolism by referring to the chapter on COLORS; if you noticed a squint in your dream, could the message have been that you are looking at things in a cockeyed way? If your eyes were shut or you noticed you were blind in your dream, your unconscious may have been alerting you to your tendency to close or shut your eyes to the truth in waking life. And if you found yourself wearing spectacles or contact lenses in your dream, do you need to focus on something or someone more closely in waking life, or do you wish that others would respect your intelligence more? See also Eye entry in BODY.

Perception of color is an intensely personal experience. We only have to look at our clothes and interior decoration to see how color plays a part in our lives, whether through understatement or overstatement. Color is also a form of communication and mood; for example, red means stop and black is often associated with loss in Western society. Think about how you would describe a color to someone who is blind. What feelings and thoughts arise when you think of red, blue or yellow, for example? If a color particularly stands out in your dream ’view’ (you are wearing, for example, a color you never usually wear) take a look at the relevant entry in COLORS for some clues to its meaning; as with all things in dreams, look for the associations that make sense to you. See also the Do you dream in color? entry in COLORS.

SEEING, SAW, SIGHT

This is one of the major aspects of dreaming. Unless we are born blind, virtually every dream shows us looking at, seeing or viewing the events, objects, environment and people of the dream. In a word count from a sample of 1,000 dreams, the words see, saw, look, looking occurred 1,077 times. This is the highest occurrence of any words in the sample. Next were feel, feelings, felt with a score of 855, and house, houses with 412.

This suggests that dreams are almost entirely about giving attention to, being aware of, being confronted by, considering or realising some aspect of the enormously wide range of experience which human consciousness meets. Therefore, whatever appears in the dream shows we are giving some thought to, feeling or confronting what is depicted. During each day we meet, in sensory impressions, in memory, in emotion, in thought, a huge variety of things.

It is therefore of great interest what comparatively few subjects our spontane­ous dream response chooses to give attention to out of all the range. It seems likely these chosen areas are important to us.

Looking at something implies our attitudes or response to what is seen. Being looked at by someone else in the dream suggests seeing oneself from a viewpoint which is not our norm. By actually attempting to stand in the role of the other person, as described in dream processing, we can become conscious of this different viewpoint. By standing in our own role in the dream, and actually taking time to consider what it is we are ‘seeing, and the impressions involved, we can ‘see’ or become aware of what the dream is getting us to look at regarding ourself. Idioms: from the look of things; look after, look askance at; look at; look before you leap; look blue, look down on; look for, look forward to; look into; look out, look over something; look small; look the other way; look up to; look for a fight; not like the look of; as far as I can see; as I see it; do you see what I mean; I’ll see about that; I see, see over something; overseer; see eye to eye; see life; see red; see which way the wind blows; catch sight of; get out of my sight, in sight of; lose sight of; out of sight, out of mind, second sight; at first sight.

SENSES (SIGHT, SOUND, SMELL, HEARING, TOUCH)

If you dream that you are missing one of your five senses, it is a strong signal that you feel out of control in a real life situation. You may feel you don’t have the capability to handle a certain situation you’re in, or you may feel out of touch with reality in some way.

If you dream that one of your senses is heightened (extra strong), you will triumph in a difficult situation.... My Dream Interpretation
