DREAM DICTIONARY - Cheating(exams) :Dreams will end to link to the situations and emotions that we associate with a symbol. For instance, if you are caught cheating in an exam you may feel humiliated and disgraced. So a cheating dream may be symbolic of any moment when you feel humiliated and disgraced. Its your minds way of comparing the two situations. So the dream is saying that you feel as if you have been "disgraced in the way you would if you were caught cheating in an exam".
There are many different possible symbolic meanings linked to any symbol and only one will ever be the true meaning. As well as feeling ashamed and disgraced cheating at an exam hints at you cutting corners and reducing standards. Is such a theme relevant in your life? do you feel that you are doing something less thoroughly than previously? Do you feel you are cheating by cutting corners? If so the dream maybe pinpoints that single emotion and some thoughts surrounding those thoughts.
Of course cheating will also explore thoughts surrounding right and wrong. Do you feel you have been treating people unfairly? Have you realised that you are in the wrong?
KEY WORDS :ashamed, disgraced, cut corners, lower standards, wrong, injustice (try to think of ways in which you would use these words and phrases to describe your feelings. If you can think of something then your dream probably pinpoints that single emotion eg if you have a dream about cheating and you were thinking the day before how you have been cutting corners and reducing standards then the cheating may represent that exact thought)
Of course there are many possible uses of these symbolic meanings. Dreams can capture very complicated thoughts and many dreams will not be about you - they will link to your thoughts about people and situations around you. One of the key words with cheating dreams is "ashamed". Now think of how many ways in which you could use that word e.g. "I was ashamed of myself yesterday", "some people have no shame", "I used to be ashamed of myself because I delivered sub standard work but I now realise that I have to speed up". Dreams can explore complicated thought processes - they are a lot harder to understand and will involve lots of symbols but dreams can capture such thoughts.
Of course there will be other symbolic meanings. Your dream could link through any association. You may have been talking to someone of the opposite sex who was talking about how they cheated in school. Your dream of cheating might have no symbolic meaning and would simply link to your attraction and thoughts about this person.
