aurora, radiant splendor, aurora borealis, light phenomenon, extraordinary, hope

This phenomenon of the Northern Lights, which is also commonly called the Aurora Borealis, is known to many from the northern part of Norway or Sweden. It is a wave of light that shines in the sky under certain conditions. A beautiful play of colors that can be perceived as greenish glow or can these streaks of sky change to other hues, such as red or blue.

There are many myths for this beautiful natural spectacle, although scientists have already found explanations for it. According to the traditions from older cultures, northern lights stood for a long time as symbols of the gods or they also prophesied misfortune and even the apocalypse, as they often appeared in bright red color. The Inuit people assumed that the play of colors was a connecting bridge to another realm, where all people go after they die.

General dream interpretation

However, in the context of the dream plane, the northern lights do not mean a warning of impending doom. On the contrary, this dream symbol can be interpreted in a completely positive way. It is a very rarely seen impressive light phenomenon in the sky and embodies something extraordinary, also as a dream meaning. There is a possibility of a unique event in everyday life, which quite unexpectedly blows in a fresh wind and is warmly received by the person concerned. This drastic change can extend to all possible levels of relationships or areas of life. It could announce by this dream symbol also a lucky message, which holds professionally new chances or promises also private joy. Also, the stars are in favor of good luck at the moment.

If the dreamer in question is planning projects that involve great risks, now would be the perfect time to implement them. A northern light in a dream stands for new hope and predicts best success on all levels. A professional promotion could be in the offing.

Psychological dream interpretation

The psychological dream interpretation clarifies by the sight of the northern lights in the dream, the nature of the personality of the dreamer. This spectacle of nature could symbolize that the person in question seems opaque to the social environment because of his behavior, which appears intangible like the northern lights. One never knows how one is with him, since he does not let anyone get close to him.

In romantic love affairs, dating and affairs may not necessarily commit or get involved with a particular person, which can lead to misunderstandings and confusing circumstances. The northern lights in the dream serve as a call for the person to send his concentration and energy in one direction, to focus attention and awareness on what is really important in life. Some life situations require a clear decision now.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual interpretation, an aurora borealis that appears at the dream level symbolizes the divine or supernatural that creates and sustains universal law. It also represents the infinity of being. A greenish colored northern light stands for self-awareness, the realization of one's own true nature. The color red illustrates one's ownself-image or also stands for sexuality.
