Dream symbols are images that have a specific meaning and tremendous psychological importance. While lengthy dreams without important dream symbols can be translated in just a few words, dreams that contain many dream symbols require many pages.
The psychological meaning of each dream symbol is related to what it represents for the dreamer, and at the same time, related to various characteristics each dreamer inherits for being a human being. A dream symbol sends many warnings, advice, and philosophical lessons to the dreamer.
Animals represent the most important dream symbols because they reflect our wild nature. We must tame the anti-conscience, which is a huge part of our conscience that remains in a primitive condition. By translating the meaning of our dreams, we enter into contact with our animal nature. We recognize our animal reactions. We also enter into direct contact with the wise unconscious mind that answers all our questions.
When relating the most recent discoveries in the fields of biology, neurology, and astronomy to the knowledge we acquire translating the meaning of our dreams, we have a clear vision of our wild nature, which must be tamed. Our planet was prepared to work like a hospital for our absurd animal nature. Our dreams provide us with the best psychological treatment we could ever have because we need psychotherapy. We are very far from having sound mental health.
The lion is an important dream symbol that represents a strong hero, and at the same time, a selfish, violent, and demanding leader. When you’ll see a lion in a dream this usually means that someone else is a lion in your life. Everything depends on the details of the dream and on your life story, since you are the dreamer.
The lion can also represent yourself, depending on its position in the dream. You must be careful. Lions are violent. They have a positive meaning only when their heroic side is emphasized in the dream.
The comprehension of the meaning of your dreams is like the light of many lamps that gradually enlighten the darkness of your ignorance. This knowledge gives you support. It works like psychotherapy.
Many times, only by seeing an important dream symbol in a dream, you’ll already understand what to do. For example, when you’ll see a cat in a dream this means that you are being foolish. You are not seeing something obvious. You must smarten up.
Think about the importance of this dream symbol. You have to relate its meaning to your daily life. Suppose you believe that something unreal can become true. After seeing a cat in a dream you’ll immediately understand that you are being foolish for believing that something so unreal could actually happen.
