However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

STAGES/THEATER'S : Stages have several meanings. A stage is often symbolic of some very special moment which was maybe very romantic. It maybe was a very special good-bye to a loved one. In another sense it maybe shows that you are simply engaging in fantasy. Either you are thinking about a crush or you simply watched a show on TV the night before that captured your imagination. If there is not much going on in our real lives then our imagination will quite happily fill the void.

In a final sense stages can symbolise a very public statement. It maybe shows that you have given a public show of support to someone. Or that you were asked to support someone story about how a certain incident took place.

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of stages in dreams?

In real life a stage is a very theatrical place. It is where we produce plays and try to capture the important and special moments of our lives. But also stages are also used in a wider sense - life is but a stage and the people around us are the cast.

Stages can represent very public and very open shows of your feelings. E.g.

"I want to promote some new ideas at work. They are well thought out but I need to project and communicate them"[Dream Dictionary - stage][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I made a point of OPENLY saying that I wanted the job yet deep down I have reservations. I do not think it is the right move for me."[Dream symbol - backstage and stage]

"He was asking me to OPENLY support him. But I do not trust him and do not like agree with what he is doing"[Dream Dictionary - stage]

"I am taking my Fiancé to meet my granny. She is really not the sort to welcome anyone"[Dream Dictionary - an empty stage]

"I want to really show strong support for my father. I know he is caught in a difficult position. I want him to know I will be with him every step of the way. But I do not seem to be getting through to him"[Dream dictionary - My father has his back to the stage]

Stages and theatres can link to very special and romantic moments. In such cases there will maybe strong emotions connected with the dream. E.g.

"When he left it was very romantic. It was a VERY SPECIAL MOMENT." [Dream Dictionary - stage]

Stages link with fantasy and things that fill our imagination. E.g.

"I seem to be FANTASIZING about my crush too much lately"[Dream symbol - stage]

"I really got into that film last night. My life has become pretty tedious at the moment - I have got my baby to look after. The film helped me to take my mind away from my day to day life. It felt good"[Dream Dictionary - stage]
-----------------------
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 am in some house. I am wondering about the right way to do something. There are workmen there. Later I am reading a book and my best friend is there. He is an actor. The book is a film review book and is full of statistics and neatly laid out info. When I woke up I was hearing the song in my mind with the words "Your so vain - you probably think this song is about you"

THE REALITYThe day before the dreamer had been thinking about trying to promote his own ideas at work. He had done some well thought out research and wished to promote his own ideas. But he did not like to be seen to be actively promoting his own views.

DREAM ANALYSIS The book in the dream reminded the dreamer of some research he had done recently at work. So he felt that this dream could be connected with that.

The dream also included this song lyric "Your so vain - you probably think this song is about you." Song lyrics are often a good clue to a dreams meaning. Here the song is very clearly about vanity and people being self obsessed. So the dreamer looked for a theme where this was relevant in his life. He felt that if he actively promoted his own ideas at work people may think him vain and self important.

The dream features an actor. Actors also link to the public way in which they get up on stage and promote and project their ideas.

Symbolic Meanings
ACTOR : "project your ideas in a very public way in front of lots of people"
BOOK : "Your own well thought out ideas"
PEOPLE : "thinking about the right and appropriate way to act"
