SPACE : Space can symbolise several things that we associate with it. Space is literally out of this world and links to something we cannot imagine(E.g. "I cannot ever imagine being homeless"). It is also endless and so can link to a feeling like that such as "there is no limits to my anger".

- Have you been exploring some new situation which is completely unlike anything you have ever seen before?
- Have you been day dreaming a lot?
- What feelings at the moment could be described as limitless?

KEY WORDS : Unknown, limitless, fantasy, unimaginable , unable to comprehend, travelling, exploring(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the new thoughts and feelings you have been clarifying in your mind) :
- "I just do not have anything to compare it to - I cannot imagine what it will be like"
- "Its just the fear of the unknown"
- "there are no limits to this feeling inside me"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of groups of space in dreams?
The earth in dreams represents the facts and feelings within our life. They represent reality as we commonly understand. Outer space represents feelings which are beyond our own understanding or which we do not understand properly or cannot imagine. When something new happens to us we try to compare it to something that is similar. But if there is nothing similar then we have no point of reference. It is beyond our comprehension.

Space can symbolise moments when we are exploring something for the first time. E.g.

"I am starting college soon but just CANNOT POSSIBLY IMAGINE what life will be like as I have never lived away from home before"[Dream dictionary - space]

Similarly space can link to something which even when we use our imagination we cannot understand something properly. E.g.

"I just CANNOT IMAGINE what it is like to be homeless. How can you possibly understand what happens to people who live without a home"[Dream dictionary - space dream][the dream which this quote is based upon is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I have become increasingly ill. I just am afraid of the unknown. I just cannot imagine how my life will change if my health gets any worse"[Dream symbol - Meteors hit earth atmosphere]

"I am becoming very old now. I know I am near to death. I just do not know what it will be like to die. Its that fear of the unknown"[Dream symbol - spaceship ]

Space can represent our imagination and exploration of new ideas and experiences. E.g.

"I still wish to travel and experience the world. I am not sure where though yet"[Dream Dictionary - travelling deeper into space]

Often space dreams can link to actions from others which you just cannot understand - they are acting in ways which are just beyond your comprehension. E.g.

"ON WHAT PLANET DOES MY MOTHER LIVE ON? I am a grown adult and do not need to be told to finish my night class homework"[Dream Dictionary - spaceship]

"I really have to control myself. That guy I had an argument is clearly LIVING ON ANOTHER PLANET. I am never going to get through to him"[Dream symbol - alien planet]

Space may symbolise feelings inside ourselves. They may refer to endless fantasies and thoughts inside our head. E.g.

"There are no words to describe the depths of my depression. My feelings have NO LIMITS."[Dream Dictionary - deep space]

"I have got to control my DAY DREAMING. I just cannot stop thinking about my beloved crush."[Dream Dictionary - star wars dream]
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.
THE DREAM- I dreamt that I was with a woman I know(Misha). She was describing something. Suddenly we took off and she was showing me outer space. We were going up in some sort of satellite and looking at space. She said that we just do not know what happens out here.

THE REALITY The dreamer did not see a woman he knew the day before. He heard that she was off sick and suffering from depression. She had appeared OK the day before so this just did not make any sense. The dream represented his attempts to comprehend why this woman was suffering depression.(As a footnote the dreamer actually had misheard that she was suffering from depression. )

DREAM ANALYSISThis woman runs a homeless shelter and the day before the dream she was happy and joking - in fact in the best of spirits. The next day the dreamer found out that she was off sick. He misheard in a cafe that she was suffering from depression.

This had an effect on him. He could not understand why someone could be so happy the day before and then suffering from depression the next day. The dream then represented his thoughts in trying to work out why she was so depressed.

Overall the dreamer was thinking empathetically. Trying to see what could have led this lady who works with the homeless get so depressed so quickly. The previous nights weather was very bad. It was a very rough night for homeless people with treacherous winds. The dreamer thought that the lady must have felt a despair. She was powerless to act. People were out there really suffering. Yet she was powerless - and it was this that must have led to the ladies depression.

Outer space often refers to a vast unknown world that we cannot comprehend. So in this dream the space refers to the inability to really know what it is like to be homeless - especially during a storm. Its a whole different world that we cannot comprehend.

So the dream represented the dreamer trying to work out the cause of this ladies depression. And that cause was the inability to understand just how it feels like to be living rough on a night with rough storms.

This was a dream that existed only in the dreamers head. He simply misheard the reason why the lady was off sick. But feelings are real even if the reality they are based on does not exist. In fact our emotions are constantly based on irrational and false information. We form opinions on the knowledge that we have.

Symbolic Meanings
SPACE : "unable to imagine just what something could be like - just unable to imagine how Misha could have depression "
SPACE : "unable to imagine just what something could be like - unable to imagine what its like to be homeless "

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I found out that Misha was off work yesterday. She runs a homeless shelter and I overheard someone say she was off sick due to depression. Then I was trying to imagine what could cause her to have depression. Then I was thinking about the weather and how the bad weather may have got her down. Having to deal with so many homeless people and not been able to do anything to help them with all this rain about."
