Dream Symbolisms…Dolphins and the Number 8
Last night, I had a wonderful dream where I was watching dolphins swim past me. I was at the deeper part of the ocean, sitting on an elevated contraption and just watching these beautiful creatures swim and play in the water.
Here are what I found out about meanings of dolphins in dreams:
1. To see a dolphin in your dream, symbolizes spiritual guidance, your intellect, mental attributes and emotional trust. Utilize your mind to its capacity and you will move upward in life. Alternatively, it suggests that a line of communication has been established between the conscious and unconscious aspects of yourself. Dolphins represent your willingness and ability to explore and navigate through your emotions.
2. Dolphins are highly intelligent mammals, and as such represents the mental attributes and accomplishments involved in the dream itself. It also denotes that the dreamer has made some giant strides upward through the use of his mental faculties, and, if the rest of the dream bears it out, a dolphin is like a pat on the dreamers back with a well done thrown in for good measure.
3. Dolphins represent friendliness, communal living, rescue, communication, and affection. They are water-dwelling mammals and in our dreams they represent our willingness and ability to navigate through emotions. They represent positive messages from our unconscious minds. Dolphins could also represent a positive connection between our consciousness and to those parts of the psyche that is a mystery and largely unconscious.
The number eight was also prominent in my dream last night. Here are things I found out about the number 8:
2. This number 8 is a perfectly balance symbol (imagine it on its side ¥) and indicates expansion through balance (infinity symbol = expansion). It also features in dreams about the circulatory system (8 is two circles).
Ironically, these two dream symbols speak of one common theme: following one’s intuition. I made a major decision about my life yesterday and I guess, these dreams are telling me that I made the right one. 😉
P.S. These are direct quotes so couldn’t really change errors…pardon them if you find any. 😀
