Dream symbol Safari


adventure, hunting instinct, African steppe, variety, growth

Originally, the word "safari" comes from the Swahili language and means "journey".

This term was absorbed into English as well as German usage through the colonial period. This caused the meaning of this term to change, where it was now considered a "hunting trip" in Africa's steppe, which involved the killing of large animals. Nowadays, the term is used more as an adventure trip by tourists in a jeep, driving around the steppes of Africa to admire and photograph the wild animals in the wild.

General dream interpretation

The safari symbolizes the dreamer's longing for a change from the daily routine and adventurous experiences. According to general dream interpretation, the safari as a dream action illustrates that the sleeper wants to break out of his own hamster wheel.

It can also be played by this symbol a journey into the subconscious. The attention of the dreamer should focus more on contents that want to come to the surface.

If the dreamer sets out on an adventurous safari, it is considered a prompting sign that the person will become more familiar with his or her original intuition and movement of mind. Also, this dream expresses that a desire of the dreamer for personalgrowth is present. If one follows the journey of other people as an outsider, this happening in the dream conveys to be more mindful of other people's feelings.

If one finds oneself in a dream where one is involved in hunting in the steppe, this indicates that the behavior of the dreamer requires more clarity of purpose in everyday life. The dream analysis is also curious about what animals are involved in hunting in the dream steppe. If they are predators, such as leopards, lions, etc., or monkeys, it is an indication that difficulties are to be expected soon, which are caused by the dreamer's impulsiveness.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to the psychological dream interpretation of the symbol of the safari, it reflects the dreamer's desire for excitement and adventure . Perhaps he longs to travel around the world and explore undiscovered places of the earth. On the other hand, in his professional life, as soon as too much risk is involved, the dreamer distances himself. Probably it is also about the private level.

If the dreamer himself is the hunter on a safari in the dream, this illustrates that there are special expectations and passion that serve him as motivation in everyday life. It could be that this kind of drive is not purposeful in the long run.
