Eyes

Dreams in which one eye appears indicate the desire to know and to find the truth. Two eyes suggest that you are probably about to have a major revelation. Losing your sight is a sign that you fear being cheated. This dream denotes insecurity and helplessness in the face of all that happens. The eye also represents the masculine sphere, thereby identifying blindness with impotence; have something driven into the eye corresponds symbolically with intercourse. The story of Oedipus going blind after realizing that he unknowingly married his mother, as predicted by the oracle, seems to confirm this correlation of eye-sexuality. However, according to other interpretations, the eyes are “the windows to the soul,” a symbol of wisdom that offers clues about our spiritual state. The condition of the eye will give you plenty of information. For example, if the eyes are shining, there is a healthy inner life; it may also indicate psychic awareness and insight.

If they are green, however, it is likely that you harbor feelings of envy. (See GLASSES)

In the mystical tradition, the eyes are a symbol of higher consciousness.

It is believed that people have a third eye located above the eyebrows, in the center of the forehead. It perceives other dimensions and spiritual realities. In fact, it coincides in its placement with the gland of the brain that produces the chemicals to control consciousness. Many say that, centuries ago, this eye was real but, eventually, ended up being buried in the forehead. In fact, a species of lizard from New Zealand still has this third ocular member on its head.

analysis of a dream

Angela dreamed: “I was sitting in a park reading a book, when I noticed dozens of eyes flitting around. They were the size of a pea and had small wings on their backs—like flies. At first, it made me laugh; they were of all different colors and kept blinking, closing and opening their small, long- lashed eyelids. But soon I began to feel harassed. They kept watching me intently, they would slip between the pages of my book. I decided to go home, but the eyes began flying after me, determined not to leave me be.”

Angela’s dream is closely related to her profession as an actress. When she had this dream she had to shoot her first nude scene and felt very insecure. She knew that during the shoot there would be many people watching: director, cameraman, makeup artist... and she worried she was not up to the task. The book reflected her desire to prepare well for the moment, to study and rehearse well all the techniques for a convincing, professional performance. However, the eyes stalking her at all times, preventing her from reading, was a message warning that her unconscious fear could stop her.

At the time of the scene, Angela remembered the dream and understood it perfectly. The thought made her smile and immediately relax. She forgot about the eyes all around and concentrated on her role. The scene went well in the first take, and when the director shouted: ‘Cut!,’ everyone applauded.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Eye

Vision, or the ability to see or perceive.

Awareness or clarity.

Inner wisdom.

Ability to understand.

Inner vision, knowing, or a connection with God (a higher power).

Self-expression.

A person’s soul or essence.

Seeing someone’s eyes can represent connecting with that person, or feeling watched or criticized in real life (depending on your feelings).

Seeing isolated eyes looking at you can mean you’re feeling watched, intruded upon, or aware of how others see you.

Seemingly random “eyes looking at you” can appear when you’re dropping off to sleep or waking up, although they often have no significant meaning and are best ignored.

Do Dreams Have Meaning?

There is an ongoing debate about whether dreams are a vehicle for messages or whether dreams are random by-products of the brain. Both sides of the argument are briefly summarized here.

THE ONGOING DEBATE. Though mystics have long seen dreams as a message from the soul, psychologists are not so sure. Researchers are divided. Some conclude that dreams have meaning, while others theorize that dreams are random images that have no intentional meaning or message. As the nature of scientific enquiry, the debate will continue.

DREAMS AS MEANINGLESS, RANDOM EVENTS. Those who see dreams as meaningless think that dream imagery is related to the random, spontaneous firing of brain cells (neurons), which fire like blinking lights that turn on and off. This process of brain cells turning themselves on and off is thought to be part of the brain’s housekeeping and upkeep. Proponents such as Francis Crick and Graeme Mitchson suggest that cells in the hindbrain (the lower brain stem) spontaneously activate cells in higher brain centers (the cortex), which creates the nightly imagery that we call dreams. They see dreams as meaningless. In this view, the images you experience at night are random events that happen because individual brain cells fire at random (turn on and off) during the night.

DREAMS AS MEANINGFUL. Those who hold the view that dreams do have meaning agree with those who hold the opposite view—that brain cells engage in spontaneous firing. However, they consider that fact irrelevant. Instead of a focus on individual brain cells, they theorize that, like a computer, the brain has the equivalent of built-in software (neuronal mechanisms) that enables the mind to process thoughts, feelings, and experiences. One such software-like neuronal package relates to dreaming.

These psychologists point out that the brain has other similar processes conducive to information processing, such as the ability of children to learn complex language patterns. Linguist Noam Chomsky describes language patterns as “deep” versus “surface” structures; these are complex grammar and language patterns that children absorb without coaching, no matter what their language. In Chomsky’s view, such an ability in children suggests that the brain has a built-in template related to language learning. Theorists who see dreams as having meaning, surmise there are similar brain templates associated with dreaming.

Researchers Aaron Greenberg and Milton Kramer concluded that dreams have meaning, pointing to studies that suggest dreaming is linked to maintaining emotional and psychological balance. Their studies on the dreams and sleep of traumatized war veterans and those with emotional disorders indicate dreams play a key role in regaining emotional stability. Their research revealed that story lines in dreams relate to actual events in a dreamer’s life and to actual needs in a dreamer’s life. In effect, Greenberg and Kramer independently concluded that dreams are meaningful.

DO DREAMS GIVE YOU A MESSAGE? Do dreams carry specific insights for dreamers? Apart from scientific debates and hypotheses, you can check out countless dream books and Web sites that describe the personal experiences of individuals who have experienced specific messages and meaning in their dreams. No matter what scientists may speculate or conclude, dream enthusiasts will continue to analyze their dreams.... A Little Bit Of Dreams
