you ever see your own reflection in a dream? Most people are unable to see themselves in a mirror when they dream… or when they do, they tend to look really strange! We rarely look like ourselves when we look into a dream mirror. The reason why is because our dreaming mind looks at our self psychologically, not physically. Below is a good example of how our dream reflections work. This is from my nationally syndicated column The Dream Zone…

Dear Lauri,
I dreamed I was choking on something I drank. When I looked in the mirror, I saw all these veins of blue all over my face. The veins were heavier on the left side than the right. I was freaked out by the veins so I woke myself up   – Nikole 35, Memphis, TN

Lauri: Like a mirror, dreams are a reflection of what’s really going on in our life as well as what is going on within the self. Your dream seems to suggest that you may have recently choked on your words in some way. Is there something you need or want to say but can’t or didn’t? When a dream draws attention to the face, it usually means there is a reality you need to face, and your dream mirror is showing you that reality quite clearly. What you see in the mirror is not a commentary on your physical appearance but rather a reflection of your psychological state at the the time of the dream. That being said, the veins on your face are more likely a play on words and mean vain. Are you afraid that speaking up about a certain issue may have been “in vain?”

Nikole replies: This is too funny. There’s definitely a situation I could’ve handled differently. I could’ve spoken my mind but decided it would be in vain and not worth the trouble. Funny how I missed the literal translation because I was so focused on the color blue. I didn’t explicitly tell someone how I felt about their actions and I just let the friendship end quietly. It wasn’t worth the effort when I looked at it as a whole.

Lauri replies: That may be why the veins were heavier on the left side of your face. Through the dream you were probably “facing” the reality that this issue would be better “left” alone.

Nikole replies: That makes perfect sense. Thanks for making it all so clear.

    I had a dream that I was standing in front of a mirror and my mouth started to melt and I was trying to hold it and put it back together then I noticed a man that looked like and old fashioned man who also looks like a professor with the one eyed glasses just looking in the mirror. I also looked behind me in the mirror since the door was kind of see through and I say something that was kind of red and orange waving behind me and it looked like a peice of clothing and then I started to scream but there was no voice coming out.

    I really need help with this dream. I seen a girl with Golden Blonde Hair. It was Glowing and Beautiful. The hair was really long almost to the floor. We were inside the Mall. All the stores in the Mall were closed. It was a little dark inside the Mall. We were sitting in chairs. The girl was facing me. She was in front of me. The girl had a casual smile on we face. She was wearing a pink jacket. I was just starring at her golden hair. In real life, I became friends with this girl. We started hanging out and we became close. I didn’t know I was going to become friends with this girl. We did stopped talking to each other for a while. We had a falling out. We aren’t close how we used to be. I want to know what this dream really means.
