What does it mean to see an blind in a dream?

Blind Dream Meaning: From 15 Different Sources


If a blind person appears in your dreams, the reference will almost certainly be to some blindness - lack of awareness or understanding - within yourself.

(1) Ask yourself what you are turning a blind eye to. Is it something external: some problem in your work or in your domestic partnership? Lack of success in one job or in one relationship does not necessarily mean that you are a failure. It may mean only that you are failing or not getting fulfilment in that particular job or relationship. So look for another, more suitable one. On the other hand, what has gone wrong in your external life may be an effect of some repressed material in your unconscious, so see (2) below.

(2) Are you refusing to see what is going on inside you? Obviously, what is going on inside you - emotional conflict, for example - may be a result of your present work or domestic situation. It may, how ever, have a long history: perhaps the conflict, or guilt-feelings and failure- programming, or self-denigration or whatever, started in childhood. Whatever it is, face up to it; stop ignoring or evading it. First, identify it and then try to get back to the time in your life when it first showed itself. It may be difficult to trace repressed material to its origins w ithout the help of a psychotherapist. But make a real effort, asking your unconscious to reveal more of itself, and more clearly, in your dreams (or, for that matter, in meditation). The unconscious is not your enemy, it is there to assist and guide you in your quest for happiness and wholeness.

It is repressed desires, festering w’ithin your

unconscious, that are your enemies, and even they are enemies only so long as you continue to ignore and neglect them.

(3) Being blind may mean not knowing where you are going and / or a feeling of helplessness. In that case, you need to challenge the ‘you’ that is making excuses for not taking control of and accepting responsibility for your life. Take this Vou’ in hand. You are not blind: you can see very w’ell w’hat is going on in your psyche - if you w ant to.

Psycho Dream Interpretation | Ella Freeman Sharpe


Dreams of being blind symbolize an unwillingness or inability to see what is happening right in front of your eyes. Perhaps you are processing your shock at being blindsided or overwhelmed by circumstances in your life. This dream could be helping you to see that your insight, intuition and gut feelings may be more accurate than what your physical eyes may see.

To dream of being blind, denotes a sudden change from affluence to almost abject poverty.

To see others blind, denotes that some worthy person will call on you for aid.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller


Dreaming that you go blind indicates you are unable to assess or consider a particular event, refusing to see the accurate side. Maybe you are rejecting something of your own personality. Always keep in mind that the truth takes you away from the painful slavery of ignorance, so keep your eyes open. Helping a blind person, on the other hand, expresses the willingness to serve others.

In ancient Greece, the seer Tiresias was blind. In this sense, the oneiric blindness represents preference for insight discovery over external perception. Therefore, it symbolizes wisdom and self-knowledge.

A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Blind / Blindness

You may be unable or unwilling to see something clearly in your life. By dreaming of the inability to see, you may be expressing areas in your life that you may be blind to. We also use the term vision to express where we see our lives heading in terms of goals and desires.

If you are experiencing a loss of vision in your dream, you may be expressing an unconscious fear of being unable to see what is coming next in your life. Consider that a person who is blind represents limited sight but also the increase of other senses, especially intuition. Being unable to see exactly how things are going to manifest is often the very ingredient necessary for them to do so. Blind faith is one of the most powerful energies there is.

My Dream Interpretation

Blind / Deaf / Dumb

One of the things most of us fear is losing control of our faculties. Dreams in which you are blind or you see blind people may represent your refusal to see the truth or face reality. Perhaps you are unable to see any other point of view but your own, and it is time to open your eyes. The blindness may relate to an object you seek but are unable to find because of your blindness; this object is generally your hopes and goals in life, and becoming blind indicates that you have lost sight of your ambitions and are unclear about how to regain your focus. For Freud, loss of sight indicated a man’s fears of being castrated. In the Greek myth that inspired Freud’s theory of the Oedipus complex, Oedipus unwittingly killed his father to marry his mother. Once aware of what he had done, he blinded himself, an act Freud saw as a symbol of self-castration. Another interpretation suggests that blindness is a mystical dream symbol that represents inner vision, wisdom and self-knowledge. To imagine that you are deaf or dumb in a dream, or unable to make contact with people, may symbolize irresponsibility, laziness or an inability to get your point across... blind / deaf / dumb dream meaning

Blind People And Dreams

People who are blind do dream. The dreams of people who have been blind from a very early age (called ’congenital blindness’) tend to be different to those who are blind now but who had sight before. Those who are congenitally blind often have dreams that include more instances of sounds. Both groups experience dreams as imaginatively rich as those of sighted people.

Dreams are a universal feature of the human mind. Carl Jung even believed that visions in our dreams offer glimpses into universal archetypes, instinctive primordial images derived from a collective unconscious built into the very structure of the human brain. You might think, then, that even blind people could tap into this instinctive pool of primordial images and see them in their dreams.

There have been studies into whether or not congenitally blind people dream in visual images, but the findings have been mixed— some studies conclude that congenitally blind people do not dream in visual images, whilst other reports conclude that may do. The general consensus is that although people who are blind certainly do dream, their dreams are believed to be visual only to the extent that they can see, or could see before their blindness, in their waking life. People who are blind from birth are believed to have dreams that are primarily auditory, with their other intact senses participating to about the same degree that they do in a sighted person’s dreams. Such people are not thought to dream in visual images. People who are legally blind but are able to see blurs of movement, light and color would have a visual dimension to their dreams matching what they see when they are awake.... blind people and dreams dream meaning

Blindness / Blindfold

Dreams about being blind or dreams in which someone else is blind only rarely indicate the state of physical blindness.

As a dream symbol, blindness represents lack of awareness, either being truly unaware of something important that is occurring in one’s life or “turning a blind eye” to something about which one does not wish to know. Also, because our culture associates blindfolds with firing squads, blindfolds may indicate the sense of carrying out an execution, or of being executed.... blindness / blindfold dream meaning
