Dream Symbol: time frame
The time frame, period, or era depicted in a dream usually has significant meaning.
- It may set the mood, such as a dream set in the 1800s Wild West might be depicting your current workplace as wild or unpredictable
- The time frame may also point to a certain time of your life (for example, a dream about high school may represent something real events or feelings about that time of your life)—Look for a parallel events, thoughts, decisions, feelings, etc. from that time in your past
However, the concept of timeframe can be tricky. For example, the subconscious mind often uses very familiar events from the past to represent current events in your life. For example, a dream about your high school graduation 20 years ago might actually represent the promotion you just received last week. Another example is when the subconscious uses a past boyfriend or girlfriend to represent your current one.
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.
