They may also represent insight or psychic awareness. The eye can be a symbol of wisdom and clear perception of your circumstances. It can show your way of looking at things.

For example, a green eye may symbolise the fact that you, or someone near to you, have feelings of jealousy.

In extreme cases, to dream of a sinister eye may indicate that you harbour feelings of paranoia.

It is believed that we have a ‘third eye’ just above the eyebrows in the centre of the forehead. This spiritual centre can perceive other dimensions and spiritual realities. Directly in line with this centre, in the middle of the brain, lies the pineal gland, which releases the chemicals that may control higher consciousness. It is believed that this was once an eye that over the centuries became buried in the centre of the brain. The Tuatara lizard of New Zealand still has a vestigial eye at to the top of the head that is sensitive to light. Top
