There’s a saying that goes, “the eyes are the windows to the soul.”
Many have found this euphemism to ring very true, being able to tell what someone is actually going through beneath the surface.
All of us can put on a face or a front for those around us when we’re not “ready” to dive into how we’re really feeling.
Sometimes though, our eyes tell a story that we may not have even been ready to tell.
This idea can be applied to dreams about eyes, especially if they were a prevalent detail in your dreams.
In this post, we will be discussing the different ways the eyes may show up in your dreams and what they could be trying to tell you about your waking life.
How To Decode The Messages In Your Dreams
Many people don’t know that the dream realm is directly connected to the energetic body you hold.
While yes, we all have a physical body that can be interpreted by our 5 senses, the energetic body is what surrounds and courses through you.
Emotions are nothing more than energy in motion (e-motion).
The energies that run through and around you come and go through your energetic body, which is why people can feel how others feel.
Sometimes, if you aren’t equipped with the right tools or practices to move stagnant energy out of your body and energetic field, they can get stuck.
This is the job of your subconscious mind — to store all of the suppressed emotions and energies that you’re not ready to process.
Dreams occur when you sleep because your conscious mind is finally at rest, allowing your subconscious mind to take center stage.
This also makes sense as to why dreams can show odd images that you wouldn’t normally process or piece together in your waking life.
No matter how odd or interesting your dreams show up in your sleep, they can hold important messages about your current emotional state.
In the case of having a dream about eyes, these messages could be increasingly important to pay attention to. Here are some of the most commonly found dreams that include eyes and their meanings.
Most Common Dreams About Eyes and Their Meanings
There are many ways to interpret dreams about eyes, but here are the most commonly had dreams and how others have interpreted them.
Reading through these dream meanings could help you find a deeper meaning to your dreams and help you heal in your waking life.
Dreams About Third Eyes
Did you know that you actually have a third eye?
While we only perceive everyone having two, there’s a literal third eye called the pineal gland within your brain.
This gland helps with heightening your intuition and connection to everyone and everything around you.
Having a dream about actually seeing a third eye on someone or yourself could indicate that you’re experiencing a spiritual awakening.
Overtime in the society that we live in, our pineal glands become calcified.
It takes conscious effort to decalcify the pineal gland with practiced meditation, better eating habits, and removing toxins from the body.
This type of dream could be a sign that your third eye needs more attention.
It may be time to do research on better practices to strengthen your third eye, like removing aluminum from the products you put on your body (deodorant) or even eliminating fluoride from your daily regimen (toothpaste).
Bleeding Eyes in a Dream
If you’ve recently had a dream that involved someone’s eyes bleeding, you may take this as a bad sign.
However, dreams are objective.
The imagery that shows up in your dreams may seem extreme, but purposely so to invoke emotion.
In fact, this type of dream could be showing you something very literal — that you’re unable to see something clearly.
It may make you feel uncomfortable because you may have to face an uncomfortable truth in your waking life.
If the dream was about someone else’s eyes bleeding, like someone you know in your reality, this could mean that that particular person is dealing with someone silently.
This type of dream could be encouraging you to reach out to them to have a conversation or offer some help if you’re able to.
Dreams of Going Blind
If you’ve recently had a dream that showed you going blind, this is most likely not a prediction for what’s to happen in the future.
This dream is more likely symbolic, indicating an emotion that you haven’t dealt with in your waking life.
Similar to the dream about bleeding eyes above, dreaming of going blind could mean that you’re not seeing things completely clearly.
Or, it could mean that someone is “trying to pull the wool over your eyes.”
If you’re in a challenging situation in your real life, this dream may come to you to remind you to take a step back to make sure that you’re evaluating all perspectives.
Take a moment to allow yourself to see things clearly.
Dreaming of Seeing Animal Eyes
Have you recently had a dream where you locked eyes with a wild animal?
If so, this dream could hold many different meanings depending on which type of animal that you saw in your dream.
Also, pay attention to the other details such as the setting of your dream.
Overall, this dream could be a reminder to tap into your instincts.
If you’ve been ignoring your intuition in your waking life, it’s time to tap back into your own energy and follow it!
Finding the Deeper Meaning to Your Dreams
There are almost countless ways to interpret dreaming of eyes.
And although there are plenty of professional dream interpreters that may be able to share some insight into what your dream may mean, you’re the best person to dig deeper into your dreams.
If you can recall the details of your dream, try to jot them down in a notebook.
In fact, seeing eyes in your dream could be an invitation to start your own dream journal!
Before you know it, you’ll start to jog your memory and reveal the hidden messages that your subconscious may be trying to tell you.
