Frog smiles on lilly pad - dream interpretation

THE DREAM I've had two dreams with frogs in them. In the first one, I was in a huge university setting, with lots of rooms and staircases, and you needed to take specific staircases to get to certain floors, but then I found myself outside in an enclosed fenced in area with a pond. In this pond was a frog (single frog) sitting on a Lilly pad in the middle. In the second dream, there was a frog trapped in a window well, and I looked at him and he smiled at me and I told him I'd get him out of there.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been going through a lot of transitions lately, and have been focusing a lot on trying to improve herself. She was wondering what to do with her life and wondered if she was truly happy or just fooling herself.

DREAM INTERPRETATION Ponds are symbols of your own personal emotions and this dreamer was indeed thinking about herself and her own emotions. They show you are thinking a lot about yourself.

But this dream matches reality in other ways very strongly too. Universities are symbols of moments when we are thinking very seriously and making considered judgements on our life in some way.

The staircase is connected to judgement. It symbolises how we are trying to make up our minds or coming to some new conclusions. In this case it links to her examining her own conclusions.

Frogs are classic symbols of transformation. They link to the dreamers own need to change to her new life circumstances. She had had to give up work due to ill health and this was affecting the dreamer as her work was very important to her.

Symbolic Meanings
