Dream interpretation is something that has been around in the popular consciousness for a very long time.  There are some who say it’s a skill, even a science, and others who would put it more firmly in the realm of art.  Others still would hold that it has no use whatsoever, that it’s all based on superstition and magical thinking.  Whatever truths any of these views might hold, there is undoubtedly a strong pull that comes to everyone when they have a dream that’s hard to forget.

 

Windows in dreams are very common, and have been a symbol that repeats over time and across cultures.  Anyone living in an area where there are windows will likely have a dream with windows in them at some point in their life.  Windows here can be a very broad definition, from looking out of a hole in a cave, or dreaming about being locked in the NextDayBlinds Rockville MD showroom after hours.  Interpretations of either dream can be widely varied.  For people who are looking into dream interpretation for the very first time, there is often a mistaken notion that symbols have set meanings.  But anyone who has spent time looking into the nature of the unconscious begins to understand that meanings do change across cultures.

 

The most common understanding of window dreams involves seeing the house as a metaphor for the body.  Usually the window is connected to the eyes of the dreamer, because the eyes are considered to be the mirrors to the soul.  Here, looking through, or being surrounded by Rockville Next Day Blinds would suggest a shift in perspective, or that the dreamer is learning how to see things in a new way, blocking out things that are unnecessary, or opening up to see more pleasant surprises just around the corner.

 

Windows can also have connections to issues of vulnerability.  Like a door, a window allows other people to glimpse inside, and can also allow a passage, or an escape.  And like a door, a window does allow travel in both directions.  They can also relate to clarity, and in contemporary culture this is a likely interpretation, because of the common attitudes toward cleanliness in general.  There are, however, many more possible interpretations, and these all depend on the other details of the dream, and certainly the details in the dreamer’s life at the moment.  At the end of the day, windows are as mysterious as people are, and shades and blinds in dreams, just like in the waking world, serve to enhance their charm and mystery.

The subject of dream interpretation continues to captivate people from all walks of life. With such a compelling focus on the external reality of the world and commercialized importance on the awake, conscious aspects of life, it is slightly curious that so much attention continues to be placed on the subject of dreams, including their significance and meaning. Of course there are few different perspectives applied to the interest in dreams. Scientists study them for biological relevance as well as possible psychological significance. Psychologists study them for possible insights into the human mind and spirit. And individuals study dreams because undoubtedly, humans are fascinated by themselves and while in some it might be a grandiose search for attention tools, while others are continually searching to better understand themselves, their world and the overall meaning of life. And just as our eyes seem to be the window to our souls, dreams seem to be the message.

So, do dreams hold the key? Many people think so and believe that tap directly into not only our own unconsciousness but the collective consciousness of the human species. Carl Jung was an influential Swiss psychiatrist who initiated a tremendous impact on dream interpretation and symbolic associations. He was one of the original pioneers in collective consciousness thinking and his theories remain extremely influential and profound today. The Myers-Briggs psychometric tool is just one example of a contemporary psychological instrument that was directly influenced by and developed from Jung’s work. Much of Jung’s theories are heavily based in mythological archetypes, which he believes for standard psychological symbolic archetypes.

 

One of the areas in dream interpretation that Jung differed from some popular perspectives is that he strongly believed that a dream’s meaning was specific to the individual, though the symbology could be related to archetypal associations. Meanwhile, there are other dream interpretation theories that believe certain elements in dreams always mean the same or a variation of similar meanings. For instance, dreaming about a cat can represent independence in the dreamer and the specifics of the dream and situation with the cat can influence the interpretation. A sick or injured cat might signify and aspect of life one has overlooked. Dreaming of flying is one of the favorite dreams for most people. And for good reason. A common interpretation of flying represents a sense of freedom and transcendence from one’s physical and emotional issues.
