The meaning of Television / video in dream | Dream interpretation


If you are watching a video or television movie and are able to follow the story, note that the main character in the movie represents yourself. Whatever sort of program you are watching, if you are able to follow it in your dream, it relates to you and your present problems or situation. Relate it to the universal and personal symbolism given in the earlier part of this book.

If you are unable to choose which video to play, you need to examine your choices in life or work and give good thought to where you want to go.

MUSIC VIDEO

If you dream of being in a music video, it means you want to express your emotions more freely. This dream can also signify a desire to heal the soul after a difficult period in your life.

If you dream of watching a music video (on TV or watching one being made), the meaning depends on the music.

If you like the music that was playing, the dream is a positive omen of pleasure and the expression of emotions.

If you didn’t like the song, then it points to unhappiness in a family or friendship situation.... My Dream Interpretation

RADIO / TELEVISION

A television may represent your mind with its stream of thoughts, and a radio your inner voice with its communications. The programs you watch and listen to are intimate and objective representations of what is going on in your mind, so pay particular attention to what is on your dream television or radio.

If you dreamed of adjusting a radio dial or television remote control to find a particular station or channel, perhaps your dreaming mind portrayed you as trying to tune into your intuition. A dream in which you channel surf may suggest your waking restlessness or boredom. As well as helping us stay abreast of current events, radios and televisions also offer mental stimulation and DVDs and VCRs allow us to record anything we want at a time that suits us.

If you dreamed of listening to a radio broadcast, TV program or trying to record a specific program, always try to recall its subject matter.

If it was a faithful replica of a something you saw and heard on television or radio last night, your dreaming mind is simply playing out the images again in your sleep or perhaps reproving you for watching rather than living life.

If it was a variation of the program’s theme or you felt deeply involved with the program (which may or may not have been an exact rerun of the original), the chances are that it reveals a facet of your waking life, or news from within yourself. Did you identify with one of the characters, or with a specific situation or topic in the show, because you have found yourself in a similar state in the past or fear that you will in the future? Alternatively, if you dream about radio or television program but do not feel that involved in the action, your unconscious could be providing you with light relief from waking anxiety.

If you see yourself on TV, your unconscious may be attempting to communicate emotions and ideas that you feel unable to express in waking life. The image may also arise from a desire for attention or recognition from the people in your life.

If you received static instead of a clear signal, this suggests an inability to make contact with your innermost thoughts. The image would be intensified if you watched a DVD recording of a program, as this indicates memories that are recorded or deeply embedded in your unconscious.

The purpose of TV or radio programs such as talk shows, soap operas or movies—is to entertain, enlighten and divert us from our everyday lives. Your unconscious may have used the plot or situation from an entertainment show of this kind and used it as a vehicle to replay an event in your past or to act out a current concern. Modern dream superstition suggests that if you enjoy dreaming about watching television, you will be successful in life; but if you are bored or upset by what you see, you will be led astray as your lack of concentration will mean you are unable to achieve success....

To dream that you are watching television suggests that you are watching life pass you by. Perhaps you are living vicariously through the actions of others.

If you dream that you are playing a role in the TV show (or appearing on the TV news), something from your unconscious is about to be revealed. It can also mean you are getting ready to play a new role in your life and go down a new path. Seeing things on a television in dreams may also represent memories or scenes from your past.

To dream of seeing static or “snow” on a TV screen represents your refusal to see the truth in a situation. You might believe in someone who is deliberately trying to deceive you.Finally, the show on television may represent worried or troubled feelings you are having in a real-life situation.

TELEVISION

The television could represent your mind with its flow of thoughts.

It is possible that you are observing yourself in an objective manner. In this case, what appears on the screen will tell you a lot about your subconscious. On the other hand, dreaming that the television is on while you are sleeping signifies that you do not control your energy in an appropriate manner. You have a lot of information, but you do not manage to process what is truly important. (See THEATER)

Modern oneiric superstition says that if you enjoy watching television in dreams, you will achieve success. If, on the contrary, the feeling is unpleasant or it bores you considerably, there will be people who will lead you astray.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

TELEVISION

The collective consciousness and the concept of manufactured truth are represented by a television in a dream. Television represents this collective thought in action. Through programming, especially the news, there is an almost hypnotic experience in the Western world that makes the general population accept what is seen in TV as the truth about life, whether or not that is actually so.

The line between what is truth and what is fiction is continually blurred, and this has increased with the advent of so-called reality television.

The proximity between yourself and the television in your dream should be considered to represent your current relationship to the impact that television and its content is having on your life. Some people never watch TV, while others are addicted. Where you fit on this continuum will affect how you view this symbol in a dream. First examine the landscape of the dream for an accurate, contextual theme of what messages the dream might be offering you. Then filter this through the perspective that television always presents manufactured truth. Ask yourself how you might be being manipulated by what other people think as opposed to your own authentic notions about life. It may be time to turn the television off and start living life in real time.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

VIDEO

This modern-day invention of moving pictures captured through a portable and ubiquitously accessible format pervades our culture in such an enormous way that there are literally dozens of ways in which the concept of “video” connects to other elements of symbolism. At the heart of it, video relates to our ability to create in our own image the experience of being human. We make movies and those movies become a permanent record of our journey. Once the lofty realm of only a privileged few, the technology of video has been made accessible to the masses. There are two sensibilities that must be considered when this symbol appears in a dream.

The first is the creative impulse to capture an element of life unfolding.

The ability to record, pause, fast-forward, and watch at your leisure instills a sense of control in the meaning of video in a dream.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

VIDEO GAMES

Video games are symbolic of total and utter escapism and mindless thought. They are a modern phenomenon that will have very different symbolic meaning based on your personal relationship to them.

The diehard gamer will have a joyous experience of that escapism, while a critic might hold a more judgmental perspective. Where you stand on this continuum will provide the full picture for your interpretation. There is a perspective of video games that connects to a type of skill building; however, those skills have very little practical value outside of the realm of playing the game repeatedly. This is where the element of mindless thought enters into the symbolic meaning of video games.

The presence of a video game in a dream is an ironic appearance of detachment and should be considered as a possible defense against whatever the unconscious mind may be attempting to express.

If someone in your dream is playing a video game, understanding the character aspect in you that the person represents will identify what area of your consciousness is avoiding reality.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
