Dream Symbol


Feelings in dreams often represent themselves, although the subconscious mind may be exaggerating them in the dream. For instance, if you are feeling angry or happy during a dream, you are likely truly angry or happy about what's happening in the dream—and also about what it represents in real life.

The feelings of people other than yourself in your dream can represent feelings you're imagining, expecting, or fearing—especially when the person is someone you know in real life.

An angry person in a dream who comes up and hits you could represent:

  • Your feeling that the world is an aggressive or negative place
  • A recent real-life event where you experienced someone else's anger
  • Anger as part of a matter that's on your subconscious mind right now
