Dream about a Journey
Journey Dream Meaning
The act of dreaming is a journey of discovery into the centre of yourself. Consequently, there are many meanings associated with this dream theme. Firstly, the dream may represent your journey through life. An open road suggests progress but a rocky path may show that you feel that your way is arduous. Lush scenery may show that you feel happy with your circumstances but an arid desert may indicate loneliness or a lack of creativity. Sometimes the hard path is the right way forward or you may want to establish a more comfortable, easygoing, pattern of behaviour.
Are you aware of the destination and goal of your journey? Perhaps it is to discover your true self? You may feel that you tread on hallowed ground as you come closer to your own inner divinity. Sometimes the paths take us to strange lands or unfamiliar foreign countries. This can mean that your unconscious is inviting you to explore it. In mythology, a journey to the west can symbolise the journey to old age whereas an eastward journey can indicate rejuvenation.
If towns feature in your dream, consider what they represent. For example, Paris may show that you have a romantic frame of mind whereas cold Moscow may symbolise and emotional Cold War between you and your partner. You will also have many personal associations relating to places. Ask yourself what they represent and what feelings they represent.
The old-fashioned dream interpretations correspond to the modern meanings.
For example, ease of travel or obstacles reflect the ease or difficulties you will find in the future. In addition, the medieval mystics said that to dream of seeing cheerful friends starting out on a journey means that you will experience a very happy period ahead.
