Camera

In dreams, cameras usually represent yourself. The vision obtained through the lens is probably more impartial than the vision obtained through the eye. So dreaming that you photograph something or someone probably indicates a desire to see that thing or person in a more objective and less emotional way than you would in real life. It represents your desire to better focus on a particular person or situation. If the camera does not work well or when developing the picture the image is not clear maybe you are avoiding an issue in real life. It can also refer to your desire to revive the past and keep it forever. ... camera dream meaning

Cameras And Camcorders

If you had a dream in which you were using a camera, camcorder and you were taking photographs or filming an event or person from your waking life, this most likely mirrors your sense that time is passing fast and your desire to capture a moment in time before it is gone. In dreams, cameras and camcorders are symbols of committing something to memory and they often appear at times of exam stress, expressing your wish to have a photographic memory that can absorb and retain information quickly. If you find yourself studying a specific photograph or film that you have taken in your dream, this suggests that something in your waking life may have escaped your attention and you need to re-examine it in more detail. A dream of using a tape recorder may have a similar interpretation to dreams of using a camera or camcorder, in that you wish to remember the chatter and noise that is currently filling your life. If you hit any of the buttons on your camera, tape recorder or camcorder, this may express a wish to pause, rewind or fast-forward to the past or the future. If you dreamed of recording your thoughts on a Dictaphone, this may be to ensure that you remember them when you awake. If you dreamed of peering through a camera lens and become frustrated because everything was out of focus and you couldn’t get it into focus, the suggestion may be that you are not seeing things as clearly as you should in waking life. Perhaps your mind is clouded with emotions and you have lost sight of the truth. If you fitted a wide-angle lens to your camera or adjusted the focus to improve your vision, the implication may be that you need to take a broader view of your waking situation. Pay attention also to the image you are filming or photographing and ask yourself whether you are portraying it accurately; this will indicate whether you have an accurate or distorted viewpoint in waking life. Finally, do not forget that cameras and camcorders are also tools used by artists and creative people to produce beautiful shots or thought-provoking films, so if you dreamed of feeling happy when using your camera or camcorder, this could suggest that you are neglecting your creative talent in waking life.

My Dream Interpretation

Security Camera

The essence behind the meaning of the security camera is the discretion with which it captures things that occur; its presence is usually hidden, discreet, or ignored. In this way, security cameras often capture events that people don’t intend to make a permanent record of. In a dream, they connect with a sense of being watched and potentially judged for choices you are making. They loosely relate to a sense of conscience. What would you do or not do if you thought you were being watched? Such a dream may indicate a violation of privacy in some area of your life. ... security camera dream meaning

The Dream Books Symbols

Video

This modern-day invention of moving pictures captured through a portable and ubiquitously accessible format pervades our culture in such an enormous way that there are literally dozens of ways in which the concept of “video” connects to other elements of symbolism. At the heart of it, video relates to our ability to create in our own image the experience of being human. We make movies and those movies become a permanent record of our journey. Once the lofty realm of only a privileged few, the technology of video has been made accessible to the masses. There are two sensibilities that must be considered when this symbol appears in a dream. The first is the creative impulse to capture an element of life unfolding. The ability to record, pause, fast-forward, and watch at your leisure instills a sense of control in the meaning of video in a dream. ... video dream meaning

Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Video

Communication, connection, or attention (real, desired, or feared). A focus on whatever the subject of the video represents (perhaps because you consider it important or you want to remember it). Consider what was going on in the video, its context, and your feelings about it.

Video Games

Video games are symbolic of total and utter escapism and mindless thought. They are a modern phenomenon that will have very different symbolic meaning based on your personal relationship to them. The diehard gamer will have a joyous experience of that escapism, while a critic might hold a more judgmental perspective. Where you stand on this continuum will provide the full picture for your interpretation. There is a perspective of video games that connects to a type of skill building; however, those skills have very little practical value outside of the realm of playing the game repeatedly. This is where the element of mindless thought enters into the symbolic meaning of video games. The presence of a video game in a dream is an ironic appearance of detachment and should be considered as a possible defense against whatever the unconscious mind may be attempting to express. If someone in your dream is playing a video game, understanding the character aspect in you that the person represents will identify what area of your consciousness is avoiding reality. ... video games dream meaning
