Dream symbol Sleepy


too late, inner clock, laziness, indifference, carelessness, carelessness

Some people have problems getting up in the morning, others are awake early.

Very dutiful people are loathed to be late for work, for example. The reason for arriving late at work is probably mostly oversleeping and is attributed to one's own laziness, which does not lead to such a positive image.

Or you oversleep and arrive too late at the airport, which results in not being able to catch the plane, such scenes can show up not only in reality, but also at the dream level. Oversleeping an important appointment at work or even in private always brings unpleasant feelings. However, a dream of oversleeping could also make clear that the person concerned is reluctant to submit to social conventions and simply indulges in laziness and graces the bed with his presence for a longer period of time. In the analysis of this dream image, the dreamer's own needs are central and should be taken into account.

General dream interpretation

The dream image of oversleeping, according to the general dream analysis, conveys the carelessness and recklessness of the dreamer. Is this the case only at the dream level or also in the waking state of consciousness?

A dream in which the dreamer oversleeps symbolizes that the person does not like to give full effort to reach his goal. This dream symbol also represents that the dreamer does not mobilize all his forces and abilities and thus does not use his full potential. A warning can also be meant by this dream not to lose sight of reality and to keep an eye on dangerous situations.

If one dreams of tiredness after getting up, the symbol "sleepy" can give information about the respective condition of the dreamer in real life. Probably the cause in the awake state for this dream could be overstrain and stress in business life or could be emotional.

Oversleeping in a dream means being late for school, work, or arriving late for a date. This situation represents that the dreamer is trying to avoid a decision. Perhaps the possible consequences are still very unclear to him and therefore he cannot commit himself exactly or is not very decisive.

According to general analysis, the dream symbol also embodies that a certain fear of being disappointed or fear of failure is present in the dreaming person. On the other hand, a dream like this symbolizes the perfectionism of the person concerned, which inhibits him in his actions, since he does nothing without a hundred percent certainty, or he is often subject to the doubt whether his project will succeed holistically and thus misses the right moment of action.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to the psychoanalytic interpretation, the interpretation of this dream image can be interpreted differently. It depends on whether the dreamer feels that he sleeps too much or is sleep-deprived.

Perhaps in the dreamer there is a desire to have a good night's sleep, which is a reminder from the unconscious that the dreamer is under a lot of pressure and tension , so rest and relaxation are not enough. This could sooner or later lead to burnout. Accordingly, the dreamer is urged to step down a bit and to provide for balance in his life.

On the other hand, this dream image "oversleeping" illustrates that the dreamer is plagued by unconscious fears that he might miss something important if he does not dance at all weddings and does not participate in all occasions and festivities or important appointments of another kind. In psychological dream interpretation, excessive sleep represents an encouragement to make life more dynamic and lively.

Spiritual dream interpretation

Oversleeping seen on a transcendental level stands for the boundlessness of the original being. In any case, this dream image serves as an admonition to allow oneself more relaxation.
