Dream symbol Video camera


coming to terms with the past, not being able to let go, authenticity, mindfulness

Video cameras offer the possibility not only to shoot instantaneous footage, but to record the movements in front of the lens over a longer period of time and to reminisce while watching it repeatedly. This device is almost considered old-fashioned these days, unless you're working on a film set during a movie production, but otherwise any cell phone, smart phone or iPhone can record video.

A video camera appearing in a dream can appear in different moments and situations, as in real life. Does one play a role in a film in the dream or does one oneself shoot the film behind the camera as a cameraman or camerawoman? Perhaps one even appears as a director in a film production on dream level. The significance of these dream events should not be underestimated.

General dream interpretation

If one dreams of a video camera, this indicates great success, according to general dream interpretation. All developments in the dreamer's life are considered very fulfilling and gratifying. If the dreamer is engaged in a professional film production, this prophesies authoritative acquaintances that the person will meet. Standing behind a lens in a dream and filming landscapes or even moments in life reflects a keen interest in the environment and the dreamer's own development. If a video camera appears in the dream, it announces a reflection on thepast, the current circumstances of life and what the ideas about the future are. If one's own family members or friends play a role, who are brought before the camera, then the interpretation addresses the private field of the dreamer. Which people represent the closest reference persons for the dreamer or whom does he not want to do without?

If the dreamer is filmed by a video camera then this embodies the dreamer's desire for change. Perhaps one runs as if on fixed rails through everyday life and has the feeling not to be able to be authentic, everything is predetermined and takes place firmly walled principles. One should carefully examine whom one can trust and whom not.

If one shoots a YouTube video in the dream plot, everyday life seems a bit too dull and this symbolizes the longing for more excitement and variety.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychoanalytical approaches, the dreamed video camera serves as a request to examine a specific life situation from a neutralpoint of view. The dreamer seems to be too flooded by his own emotional waves, the clarity is thus clouded and is not in his full decision-making power. The subconscious mind encourages the subject through the dream symbol of the video camera in the dream event that he should change his orientation. If, on the dream level, one watches a film that one once shot and the action is related to a true event from the waking state, psychoanalysis interprets that this is still unconsciously buried deep and has not been worked through. Putting oneself on an overseeing level and looking at everything calmly can sharpen the view to more objectivity.

Spiritual dream interpretation

The spiritual interpretation of the dream image of the video camera illustrates the dreamer's advice to go through life with more mindfulness . He might miss important matters due to a limited field of perception.
