Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Camels are amazing animals. They can store water for a long period of time, and trek through the desert under extreme heat and deprivation.
All of this can be done while carrying precious cargo or human lives. Camels in dreams represent our own inter-personal journeys. A camel in your dream represents any kind of personal journey your mind and body are venturing into. Just like the camel that does not complain or stop on its journey, you too should have this attitude towards life. The camel does not mind the rough terrain, because he has prepared. If you are prepared for anything, then everything will be okay in the end.
Detailed dream interpretation
Your camel dream may have been telling you several things about your life’s journey. Camels represent long journeys, but in reality, they do not rush through this epic quest. Life, in a sense, is a journey, so the camel in your dream may be telling you to take life slowly as it comes. The camel also does not whine or complain about its long journey. Use this dream to look into your current situation. Have you been stressing about things that are not truly that important? Have you been demanding too much from other people for your own selfish desires? You might be too focused on your own present happiness to see that it is the future destination that really matters.
Camels also know to stock up on water before a rough journey. There is no way you can physically prepare for every situation that life throws your way. However, you can mentally prepare by reminding yourself not to let the bad situations take over your thoughts. If something negative happens in your life, you should always do your best to fix it, but you should not stress out if things do not go your way. Reminding yourself of this fact will help you to accept life as it comes and not to be bothered by difficult situations.
If you were riding the camel in your dream, and you successfully finished your trek, you are handling life’s journey just as you should. However, if you were riding the camel in your dream and you did not finish the journey, you are trying too hard to control what cannot be determined. You have taken life’s reigns and tried to steer them in your direction, but life will always be on its own path. There is only so much you can do to control your own destiny, but after that point, you must let go of the reigns. Realize that you are not the controller of every little thing, because this will greatly decrease your stress levels. If you spoke with the camel, you were seeking advice about your future. This is a sign of good times to come, as your subconscious sought out the advice of the animal kingdom’s expert on life’s long journeys. Whether you can remember what was said or not, take it as a sign that you should heed any advice you receive in the near future that may help you with your current and future goals.
From a psychological point of view, the camel is often called “the ships of Arabia.” From a symbolic perspective, as I like to look at the spiritual side of every symbol that appears in dreams, the camel is a symbol of love, sacrifice, and greater wisdom.They are quite slow, hard-working, tactile, and adapt in the desert conditions. The camel is what is known as “artiodactyls” which means even-toed. They regurgitate food that they eat which is known as ‘cud.” The average height of the camel is around 6 feet and if we think about the amount of pressure that the camel has to ensure - carrying heavy loads in the hottest of sunlight we know these creatures are persistent.
I was surprised to learn that camels have an IQ level equivalent of an eight-year-old child. One thing that did strike me when researching this dream interpretation is a camel can be revengeful. Some will injure, bite, kick but alternatively, it can also be very loyal to its master. Camels are wonderful animals living across the Middle East and the African continent. In Arab worlds the camel is similar to the horse, they have different breeds and predominantly are used for transport. Spiritually speaking, the camel in dreams indicates a journey, perseverance and hard work. Riding a camel in your dream implies that you’re a stable and committed person. Persistence and mental strength are your assets.
