Dream Symbol: time passing
The passage of time, or a series of events, can represent time passing or a series of events in real life.
For example, consider a dream where a swarm of bees were chasing you, then you were suddenly talking with your mother, and then you were walking precariously on a rooftop. This could represent three separate events in your real life that happened in that same sequence, but not necessarily one right after the other (they could be days or months apart). In this case, you might look for a recent time when you were feeling overwhelmed (represented by the bees), then later you talked with your mother (represented by your mother), then you were taking a risk of some kind (represented by the rooftop).
Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
