Symbolism Dream Type

A dream contains symbolism when one or more key elements, or symbols, are featured prominently and the dreamer experiences those elements as having great significance (even if the dreamer doesn't know what the symbol means). These key elements almost always represent something other than themselves and carry a hidden, deeper meaning.

Example A

You dream that you have lost your keys.

The keys may be a symbol of your identity or sense of self from which you feel separated or perhaps that you feel is being threatened somehow in your life.

Example B

Your car has been stolen.

The car could be a symbol of your personal security or freedom you feel is being threatened in your life somehow.
