The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:

Physical Physical
You are lightening up, letting go of density, clutter, or physical weight. A light bulb turning on means you’re ready to face reality.
Emotional Emotional
You are lightening up your emotions, becoming more humorous, joyful, and untroubled.
Spiritual Spiritual
Your awareness is moving into clarity, truth, understanding, wisdom, and enlightenment. You’ve found an answer, seen the way through a problem. Small, pointed lights like candles, flashlights, or light bulbs represent insights or guidance. Broad, diffused light represents an atmosphere of understanding. Lights turning off means you need to face something in your subconscious, or let your mind be quiet. Lighthouses and beacons symbolize an inner source of guidance you must follow to be safe.
Light, traditionally, is equated with the spirit. Ely Star asserts that the superiority of the spirit is immediately recognizable by its luminous intensity. Light is the manifestation of morality, of the intellect and the seven virtues. Its whiteness alludes to just such a synthesis of the All. Light of any given colour possesses a symbolism corresponding to that colour, plus the significance of emanation from the ‘Centre’, for light is also the creative force, cosmic energy, irradiation. Symbolically, illumination comes from the East. Psychologically speaking, to become illuminated is to become aware of a source of light, and, in consequence, of spiritual strength.

    Light has traditionally been identified with the spirit. It symbolizes knowledge, inspiration, and intuition. For this reason, if your dreams are luminous, it means you possess great self confidence. However, if they are dark, it reveals the presence of feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem.

    To turn on a light in darkness augurs that you will discover a secret. Finally, you must pay attention to the different forms of light, since the reading depends on it. So, the rainbow represents hope; the sun, happiness; and the moon, the guide that comes from your most hidden unconscious self.

    The light you see in dreams can have a great spiritual importance. It may deal with a journey toward enlightenment, or an experience in the interior, similar to those the mystics had. In many cases, it has a religious meaning. Christ is often called “the light of the world” and, regarding the Buddha’s nirvana, they say it is “unlimited light.” Equally, the teachings of yoga describe “the light of ten thousand suns.”

    Light in general is a symbol for life itself, for the creative force that some people refer to as God or the Divine. Judeo-Christian doctrine tells us that the very first thing that came about in the creation myth was light. Many dreams will express an aspirational spiritual sensibility through the presence of light as a symbol for your connection to this part of the human experience. If there is a sensation of light in your dream, you may be expressing your own spiritual nature. Light also connects to your ability to see and become consciously aware of things about yourself and in your life. In this way, light may be a symbol of your expanding awareness of things that used to be in the dark and are now coming to light.

    Dreams flooded with light signify understanding, enlightenment, spirituality, and those “aha” creative moments. You can see more clearly right now than usual, so take advantage of this enlightened time.

    If you feel blinded by intense light in your dream, you aren’t quite ready to recognize something obvious. Or is it the morning sun?

    If bright light accompanied by a disembodied voice tells you something in your dream, this is a message from your higher self or possibly even a higher power than you—your alarm clock!
