Dream symbol Monument


famous personality, carved in stone, work of art, memory, tribute

Famous personalities, such as poets and freedom fighters, religious people or politicians, who have had a profound effect on contemporary history, have had at least one monument built in the course of centuries.

The term "monument" represents plastic statues, statues or even a monument, not only in memory of important personalities, but also of historical events, such as vaunted battles, or even as a work of art from earlier periods of history.

It is not uncommon for such a monument to appear in a dream, sometimes not immediately noticeable at first glance because of its shape or size, and usually only coming into focus and bringing conscious memory to light when looked at a second time. Therefore, it sometimes takes a keen attentive eye of the person concerned to attach meaning to the monument as a dream symbol.

General dream interpretation

Thus, this dream image "monument" places a symbol of recognition and honor , highlighting the importance of the person in question or an important contemporary event.

If a monument shows up in your dreams, it should be considered for the dream interpretation who built it and to whom it is dedicated. Does the effigy serve as a reminder of an event or a person ? Or was an absurd irrational object built as a monument in your dream ?

If your dream is about a monument to a person you know, then you may want to hold that person in high esteem. Whatever shape or form the monument shows in the dream situation, pay attention to it so that a comprehensive profitable interpretation can be made.

As a dream symbol, a monument can give you a lot to think about. It could perhaps reveal hidden feelings and inclinations which you are not otherwise aware of in real life.

If one recognizes oneself as a stonemason in a dream, it may express an excessive desire to seek esteem from others. A runic monument in sleep usually refers to something secret or the sphinx as a monument can stand for something inscrutable in the waking world.

Psychological dream interpretation

In psychological interpretation, this dream image is a symbol of success, power, recognition and honor . The dream symbol monument is related in a negative sense, with overestimation of oneself and making too high expectations and demands on others.

If the dreamer looks up admiringly to the monument in the dream, this symbolizes hopes and expectations of an unrealistic kind, while building one's own monument stands as overestimating oneself.

In addition, a monument can also mean to be careful with too much praise and recognition and not to be carelessly seduced into arrogance about future successes. If only the pedestal of a monument is visible in the dream, then this can express that in waking life they should put in more effort so that they make it all the way to the top of the monument, figuratively speaking to climb up.

There are also numerous psychological interpretations of this, if a war memorial appears in a dream, this symbol embodies a fossilized memory of the dreamer from the past.
