A Stranger With Message | Dream Meaning

The keywords of this dream: Stranger Message

14 dream interpretations related to the symbols you see in your dreams.


The interpretation of seeing and interacting with a stranger, or strangers, in your dream depends on the details of your dream and on your personal belief system. Some Eastern cultures believe that the strangers in your dreams are spirits from another dimension. These spirits may be teaching you lessons or giving you specific messages.

The more modern approach to interpreting a dream with strangers in it is that they represent different sides or unfamiliar aspects of our personality.

The best way to tell is to “check inside” of yourself and simply try to understand the message of this dream. Whether the message is coming from your unconscious or from a different reality might be irrelevant.

The lessons gained through a dream are far more important then where they came from. Just remember: The mind that dreamt the dream also knows its source and meaning (and that is YOUR own mind). See also: People... stranger dream meaning

Notice / Message

Dreams that feature notices or messages are often seen as wake-up calls to the dreamer, implying that they need to be more aware of what is going on around them. Is there something or someone in your everyday life that you need to take note of? If the notice appeared on your fridge door, the message may be concerning your home life but if the notice appeared on a notice board, it may relate to school, college or work.

If you are the one pinning up a message, this suggests that you are the one who wishes to communicate with someone but haven’t yet found the right time.

If you can’t read the message on the notice board, then perhaps you are feeling left out of a particular social group or need to branch out on your own.... notice / message dream meaning

Secret Message

In waking life, secret messages or codes are used to convey important information as speedily as possible and to keep secrets from outsiders or enemies. Any dream in which you were sent a code that you could decipher may therefore indicate the need for speed and secrecy when communicating with someone in waking life. If, however, you were unable to understand the code, this suggests that you are finding it impossible to understand someone in real life. The secret message in your dream may also appear in the form of an anagram (a word puzzle in which you rearrange the letters of the original word or phrases).

Homonyms are words that sound alike but have different spellings and meanings and polysemy refers to single words that have many meanings. These word-plays are common in dreams. For example, the words ‘tale’ (story) and‘tail’ (backside), or‘navel’ (belly button) or‘naval’ (navy) are examples of homonyms. The word‘suit’ is polysemous as it can mean something you wear, one fourth of a pack of cards or as acceptable (as in‘suits me fine’).

If your dream messages don’t make sense, look for hidden codes. Write the mystery message or word down on a piece of paper and try to see if there are any words that sound the same but mean something different. Can you rearrange the letters to form different words or another phrase? In most cases, if you play around with the words you’ll discover their secrets.... secret message dream meaning

Telepathic Messages In Dreams

There is one form of communication that requires no paper, pen, computer or phone: thought transference or telepathy. Although the jury is still out as to whether telepathy is a real phenomenon or not, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that it is; you may have experienced it yourself in dreams. For example, if you had a dream of your much-loved cousin being badly injured in a car crash, and then woke to receive news that he had been involved in such a car crash during the night, your cousin may have communicated his pain telepathically to you. In most cases, telepathy is thought to occur between two people who have a very close or empathetic relationship and the sender may often be unaware of transmitting their emotions to the receiver. The most common published accounts of telepathy and ESP are between lovers or family members, and focus on a life-threatening injury or death. Psychics believe these people are able to tune into each other’s frequencies as they are so close to each other emotionally; a twin brother, for example, will sense the pain of his twin sister. In times of crisis, we send out our message and those who are in tune will pick it up.

Another example of dream telepathy is called shared dreaming, in which people try to meet up with each other in dreamland or to dream of the same landscape.... telepathic messages in dreams dream meaning

Concealed Identity/stranger

Universal Landscape: An unknown Character Aspect; unconscious drives.

Dreaming Lens: What was your relationship with the unknown person? Was the stranger an assailant or attacker? Was the stranger physically hidden from you in some way? Did the stranger reveal their identity to you in some way? Were you aware of whom they really were? Were they pretending to be someone else? Were they simply an unknown person?

Personal Focus: A person unknown to you is still representing a Character Aspect of your personality, even if his or her identity is concealed or if it is a stranger. When making an interpretation about a person you don’t know, you must put your focus on what you actually do know. What the person is doing in your dream and how you feel about that will give you the essence of your interpretation. That it comes from a stranger or person with a concealed identity indicates that the unconscious is not quite ready to reveal some aspect of your personality that is being called into action in your current situation.

We learn in stages and increments and often resist change, so be prepared for initial levels of fear to come up around this type of imagery. The unknown assailant who chases us may simply be trying to give us our forgotten lunch money or an umbrella because it is raining. When there are clear personality traits and the identity is unknown to you, it likely points to an area of development within your own personal makeup.

An angry or aggressive stranger may point to an integration of that energy into consciousness. A more helpful or gentle stranger indicates that softer elements are being called into prominence. Whatever end of the continuum your dream stranger is on, be prepared to consider the necessity and power of the energy he or she is embodying in the dream. A deliberate deceit of identity can also indicate a matter of the unconscious tricking the conscious into hearing a difficult piece of information; for just as in life it is sometimes easier to hear impactful news from a stranger than from someone we love.... concealed identity/stranger dream meaning
