Turning off lights in house - dream interpreted

THE DREAM I was in a house. They had a huge kitchen with a bunch of nooks. I was going around turning the lights off. I turned off all the lights except the one in the middle which was over an island. I remarked how just one light in this kitchen made it brighter than my kitchen/dining room with 2 which is considerably smaller. This made her feel a lot safer in the dream.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been thinking a lot about her future. She had thought through various ideas and after weeks of thinking she finally decided what she wanted to do in life. The dreamer had made unwise decisions in her life but she felt in her heart that she knew what she truly wanted to do. This was very much a dream about insight. She woke up and her mind was resolved about what she was going to do.

THE INTERPRETATION The dreamer had been doing a lot of soul searching over the recent past thinking over her future in a very serious way. So that's a good piece of background information to start with. Often dreams will follow the various arguments surrounding such a topic. The dreamer may get several dreams.

On the day of the dream she woke and suddenly all these arguments in her mind were decided. That's a good clue as far as the dream is concerned. Dreams are often about sudden changes in our thoughts and feelings.

Just with background knowledge and fresh thoughts in the dreamers mind we have lots of good clues. But exactly how does the dream relate to the real life issues?

The kitchen is symbolic of preparations. It can symbolize a deep hunger for something new. In short we go into kitchens in dreams to feed our mind with new experiences. So this is very much a symbol connected to the future and what we wish to plan towards. That very much links with the real life plans that the dreamer was thinking through about her life.

Light is very much a symbol of insight and understanding. The dreamer did indeed have an insight. But the dream very much linked to the precise nature of her thoughts. She decided to concentrate on one thing above all others. She cut through all the plans that she had and suddenly concentrated on one thing. So the lights could symbolize her focus on one thing rather than other things.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have been thinking hard about my future. Now I think I am going to focus all my attentions on some areas. I know now what I want to study."

Notice how the dream links to a key thought the dreamer had about his studies
