With the help of a camera, important life events and happenings are filmed or photographed to be remembered. In dreaming, a camera can be interpreted in many ways.

The concrete analysis depends again on the accompanying situations in the dream. What does it mean, are you photographing or filming yourself in the dream or is someone else using a camera to record? Is it a surveillance camera that recorded the dreamer?

General dream interpretation

Mostly, according to general interpretation, the dream symbol "camera" is connected with the love situation of the dreamer. If you find yourself in the dream in front of the camera lens, it indicates that you are probably in the "spotlight" with a person on the stage of enormous interest. This person may have deep feelings for the dreamer and if from his side, this affection is returned, nothing stands in the way of a love relationship.

Exactly the other way around, according to general analysis, if you yourself as a sleeper in a dream photograph or film a person, that this symbol stands for deep expression of love, if you yourself photograph someone with a camera. One would like to capture something for ever this moment by a photo!

Further, a photograph taken by a camera expresses change and that is less likely to have a positive interpretation. The impending change of the subject seems to make his present situation even worse. One is urged by the symbol of the camera in the dream to guard against deceit and deception by being alert and attentive.

If one is shooting a Hollywood movie in the dream event, it could reveal hope for something seemingly unattainable.

Being filmed by a surveillance camera most likely announces the fear of losing control. The subject fears loss of self-determination . Thus, the camera in the dream can also be associated with POWER. It is commonly believed that a surveillance camera may indicate difficulties with superiors or higher levels of authority.

Besides this dream image of shot photos of a camera, the photos could symbolize excessive vanity and arrogance.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychologically, this dream image "camera" can also be given different meanings. This refers the dreamer to use his lived experiences as wisely as possible and to learn from them. On the other hand, this symbol can also call upon the dreamer not to repress special events that were experienced as painful or unpleasant into the subconscious. It should be viewed and processed in the best possible way to facilitate the internal memories.

Perhaps an important decision is about to be made in the dreamer's life, so this image of the camera, according to psychoanalysts, encourages him to be objective. Not to be seduced by fluctuating emotions that project a very limited subjective view of the outside.

If on the dream level the dreaming person himself is filmed, he should be more concerned about his outward effect. What action is appropriate in what situation? How do I deal with my inner world, which cannot be hidden and reflected on the outside? How am I authentic?

Spiritual dream interpretation

Coming into contact with a camera in a dream event can suggest, on a spiritual level, that more attention and mindfulness is needed in life.
