Detailed dream meaning...

When you notice mirrors in a dream, often they come with their own images. Sometimes you will see a pleasant reflection in a dram while other times you will not see anything at all. In the dream, the reflection you see (or lack thereof) has significant meaning to you as the dreamer and how you see yourself in the waking world. Consider your own image in the mirror in your dream as reflecting an aspect of yourself, but remember that the sight that you see is not always what you are thinking of in real life. Seeing yourself as older our younger, attractive or ghastly – often these are reflections of the inside and usually are tied to feelings of worry, guilt, or self-chastising behavior. For example, a person who is run down in their life and desperately needing a change may see the reflection in a mirror as themselves but as a person who is old and haggard looking. Someone who feels that they are overlooked or not paid attention to in their waking world will sometimes stare into a mirror but see no image of their self. The first indication of the mirror in a dream is to assess your internal feelings about yourself and what is going on in your life. Often, there is a direct correlation about how you are feeling and it is simply your psyche’s way of dealing with internal feelings.

A house with smashed mirrors, if it is your home, is a deeper reflection of how tyou see yourself. This is a message that you are hiding and sometimes can be an alarming dream. Consider what feelings that you have that you are ignoring. When you refuse to look at yourself in the mirror, consider your own way that you feel that others see you and if you are dealing with a healthy outlook on your own appearance. Often, people with eating disorders or twisted self-image issues will be unable to look at themselves in the mirror.

Mirrors are a strong key for foreshadowing in stories and movies. Messages get written in steam and sometimes you will see things in the mirrors that you normally would not see become apparent. Dreams sometimes will use a mirror as a window. If there is a magical quality to the mirror, especially if there is a purpose or image involved, this is often a psychic or prophetic dream which should not be ignored. Fear dreams regarding mirrors are often warnings of things to come in your waking world.

Of course, there are generic meanings when mirrors are involved in your dream. It is important to pay attention not only to what happens in your dream but about how you feel from what you see in the reflection of the mirror.  When a dreamer can see the past, like a running movie in a mirror, the nostalgic feeling or scared feeling or whatever else… these indicate key points of your life to revisit. If a person looks into a mirror and feels sexy and confident then it would be important as well, bringing those aspects into the waking world. The same is said if you look into a mirror and are unhappy with what you see, then consider the cause and how to change it in your waking world.

Dreams often show us path ways to travel. And mirrors help us to see what is right and wrong for oneself.  With all the things that are happening in our daily life’s it’s nice to slow down and see what we might have missed because we were looking the wrong way. Mirrors often give us a chance to see things from a new prospective.
