Dream symbols - stare
STARING IN DREAMS:Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance a "staring" dream may simply translate into the word "disbelief" and the dream captures your feeling that "I looked at him in disbelief at what he was saying." Our dreams capture key moments like these in our thinking. As far as our intuition is concerned this was one of the highlights of our day.
FULL LIST OF KEYWORDS
In practice staring in dreams has several symbolic meanings. Here is the full list.
- "sexual attraction or arousal" (If the dream was obviously quite sexual it may link in some way to your sexual feelings. Maybe you were sexual aroused upon waking in which case the dream simply captures that feeling of arousal.)
- "completely exasperated" (sometimes we stare when we just do not know what to do. You may have tried everything that you could do and now you have no options left. Did you have such a feeling yesterday? Did you feel the following type of feeling - "I showed him how to do it four times and still he did not understand. I really did not know what to do?")
- "deep love for someone" (Were you staring at someone in the dream because you have a deep love for them? Are you madly in love with someone?)
- "sensitivity about your looks" (If you worry about your looks then you are constantly thinking that people are looking at you. Was this the case yesterday?)
- "humiliated in front of everyone" (did you feel as if someone said something in front of everyone and this left you feeling humiliated? )
- "worn down by illness" (If you are worn down by illness then you have a dazed look on your face)
- "taking a long hard look at something" (Have you started to think rationally about something? Have you just started to realise the truth? Have you started to look around you and see the truth)
- "a cold and unemotional exterior" (Have you been thinking of someone who is quite cold and unemotional? Someone who does not show emotion? Have you become very callous and uncaring recently? )
- "guilt" (if you feel guilt then you feel others are looking at you. You are imagining that others are thinking about how you acted and how you disgraced yourself)
- "complete disbelief" (Did you look at someone in disbelief yesterday? Could simply not believe what they were wearing or saying?)
- "your mind is completely focused on something" (were you completely fixed on what you were doing yesterday?)
- "expecting the worst" (we instinctively watch when bad things happen. A staring dream may capture your disbelief at how bad things were turning out yesterday)
- "nervous and inhibited" (have you been thinking of your own failures? Do you suffer from phobias and believe that people are watching you?)
- "facing prejudice" (do you feel as if you face massive prejudice? Do you feel as if people are looking at you because you are different?)
- "conscious of what others might be thinking" (Did you make some drastic error yesterday and feel others would soon blame you? Do you get paranoid about how you look or what you say? )
- "making a big fuss" (Was there a big fuss at work yesterday? Did everyone stop and look at what you were doing?)
Its a fallacy that dreams capture unconscious thoughts - dreams represent thoughts that we are all too aware of. A typical dream would translate into the types of thoughts that we might write down in a diary or tell a best friend. Dreams represent your key thoughts which pinpoint the problems right now. Try to write down some quotes which capture your feelings right now and try to include the words and phrases above. For instance in one case the dreamer been thinking about his own obvious failings the previous day. So by looking at the list we see that the following words and phrases seem relevant: "conscious of what others might be thinking" because the dreamer was thinking of his own failings and wondering if others were noticing them", "nervous and inhibited"; and "humiliated in front of everyone". These are all situations and feelings that could be relevant in this main feeling on the dreamers mind.
Dreams can represent very sophisticated thoughts. One dreamer had a dream that she was staring blankly whilst covered in blood. At the time she was severely ill and had no energy left to do anything. So really the dream captured this exact thought "I really have no energy left - I am completely beaten". We can deduce thoughts like these by guessing at the persons state of mind. In this case the dream summed up her emotional state. On the surface it had no connection with how she was thinking but if you look deeper this short story caught exactly her state of mind.
