What Does It Mean When You See Yourself in a Dream?
Seeing Your True Self with the True Mirrorcan
Do you ever see your own reflection in a dream? Most people are unable to see themselves in a mirror when they dream… or when they do, they tend to look really strange! We rarely look like ourselves when we look into a dream mirror. The reason why is because our dreaming mind looks at our self psychologically, not physically. Below is a good example of how our dream reflections work. This is from my nationally syndicated column The Dream Zone….
Howard is a regular lucid dreamer. He likes finding ways to increase his lucid episodes and enjoy the dream world. Waking up after you've dreamed of yourself can be confusing. As with many other types of dreams, the whole experience doesn't hit you at once. The return to the waking world brings a flicker of the dream, then all the details slowly fill in.
Mirrors present an interesting puzzle in lucid dreams because their main property in real life - reflection - is driven by the laws of physics. Yet these laws are entirely moot in dreams. In fact, the only reason things do follow the laws of cause and effect in any dream is because we expect them to. Physical law drives our entire conscious experience and we carry it with us - both consciously and unconsciously - into the dream world. Every "normal" construct in the dream world cars, houses, human beings, bicycles, swimming pools, trees, dogs, clothing has been drawn from your waking experience. If you were blue and lived on Titan, you would no doubt dream of blue aliens and green skies every night - and that would be your normality. So your dreams are heavily based on your memories and expectations , and this creates an interesting conundrum which we can explore with dream mirrors.
