Dream symbol Double


twin, looking alike, confusion, similarity, mischievousness

Maybe you have met someone who looks exactly like an acquaintance or friend of yours. Or have you met someone on a trip whose resemblance to you was so striking that he could be your own doppelganger. Sometimes it seems fateful to meet such a person, especially if there are other parallels like the same preferences in both lives.

As an identical twin, there is nothing special about looking your own double in the eye every day. Since one grows up with his exact likeness, there is also usually a very own thick connection between twins. Sometimes it is also a pleasure to lead the surroundings around by the nose, by jokes to pretend to be the other.

General dream interpretation

The General Interpretation for a doppelganger encountered in a dream expresses tremendous LOAD on the dreamer. It seems that he does not have the necessary help, "not enough hands", so to speak, to do all the tasks conscientiously. Therefore, the dream interpretation suggests to the person affected, since the power is at the end, to seek help and support in waking life in order not to stretch the arc of his limits even more.

The doppelganger confronting the dreamer can also be a symbol of a reminder. Probably it is about decisions he should have made long ago, but by wavering back and forth it can be assumed that he feels torn and is not ready. Thus, the doppelganger acts as an aid to decision-making.

If you can remember exact details in the dream, it has a positive effect in terms of dream interpretation. What did your double have to say to you in the dream and how did he behave. Or have you even seen a double, a person known to you from the waking world in your dream, so to speak two with the same appearance ? Individually, such clues are again very useful.

Psychological dream interpretation

In the psychological sense, the dream image "double" has to do with the inner state of discord. Do you look at yourself and how your self-image is? What do you criticize about yourself, what do you wish ? Maybe to be more beautiful, more intelligent, more open? Or do you accept yourself as you are?

Our own doppelganger holds up a mirror to us in a dream to help us move from a narrow ingrained subjective view to more objectivity. It is possible that the doppelganger, although resembling our face, appears to us much more attractive, lovable and sympathetic. On the other hand, the opposite case can arise, that one faces one's double uneasily or fearfully and that the double even seems threatening to one.

Many dream analysts would think that this symbol should be seen as a rejection of the unpleasant parts of one's personality. Even if you would rather push away unpleasant sides, however, they are part of every person, and only through acceptance and acceptance can they dissolve. If your "doppelganger" appears in your dream, he wants to show you benevolent acceptance.

More often, in psychological interpretation, a person may also dream of a double if he devotes too much energy to self-preoccupation. This also raises the question of whether one wants to present oneself in life "better" than one actually is, believes to be, or does one show oneself authentically with all that one is. This dream image thus points to both sides of one's personality.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to the transcendental interpretation, the encounter with one's double in a dream symbolizes the encounter with one's HIGHER SELF, the pure original part, the essence of each one.
