Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

face dream meaning


A face reveals a person’s character, emotionality, health and their personality. A face can show you if a person is happy or sad, friendly or hostile, healthy or sick.

Any dream where you see a face, (if your own or someone else’s) refers to your tendency to hide from a normal life. The face symbolizes the waking life.


We rarely see our own face in a dream, but rather someone else’s face. The expression on the face shows our true reflection in life - and our perception of the way that others see us. If you have not seen the person's body, just the face, this shows that you may encounter difficulties in waking life.

Each face is different. Therefore, this dream is focused on different situations entering your life.

Dreaming of seeing a face generally means you are analyzing your own identity. What does it mean if you dream of a monster with an unusual face? This means you are having trouble understanding yourself in waking life. To see many faces in one stream suggests that there will be a number of people who give advice. It is important to follow this advice. To see a face injured in a dream is a negative omen. Any type of injury denotes bad luck. In ancient dream dictionaries the face symbolised identity of the dreamer. Therefore, it is associated with the difficulty understanding our own identity and purpose within the universe.

If in your dream you are confronted by an accusing look on the expression of the face, you can be sure that you are hiding away hidden feelings of disapproval. To see some a dirty or scary face in your dream, suggests that you hold shame for a situation. Happy smiling faces suggest that you are inwardly content and have good reason to be optimistic in life.

A face represents your own level of honesty. If the face is smiling, this is a sign of friendship and joy. Unknown faces indicate that you will change your house or your job. A beautiful face means a restless mind and soul. The face of a monkey in your dream is a sign that you are capable of giving a lot of love. To see a Demon's face in one stream suggests that there are problems in waking life. It is important faces problems with optimism as it is likely you are able to resolve any issues.


A furious face is a symbol of integrity. A face covered with a veil means that your family is hiding something from you. Washing your face suggests that you will be sorry and have regrets in regard to a relationship in waking life. Seeing your own face in a mirror is a good sign which is connected to consideration and honor from your boss. However if you see your face reflected in water it is a bad omen, predicting hate and disagreement. Dreaming of a face wearing make-up means you will lose money.

A dream about a man without a face is a sign of mystery that reveals a possible threat, such as the dishonesty of somebody close to you. But the man without a face can represent the dreamer, if the appearance is of the same sex. If you have been humiliated in waking life seeing a faceless person is common. It could be your subconscious’ way of expressing the loss of identity.

No face can mean that you have to deal with an important issue in life, and you are hesitant about it. This could refer to a past situation that keeps coming back to haunt you. A man without a face could suggest your fear of facing the situation, but it can also indicate that someone has betrayed you.

If the man without the face in your dream is trying to hurt you, this means that your past is affecting your future, and it is time to stop living in the past and begin enjoying the present.
