Dream: What Does It Mean?

I have had a dream where I see a boy with three crystals in a triangle the right side white the left purple and the bottom red and when he held them up to the sun they shined down on the earth what could they mean?

We touched a bit on dreams in an earlier post, and I will echo some of that here as well. One thing to keep in mind when it comes to dream interpretation, is that no matter what the dream dictionaries or symbolism books say, at the very heart of it all is…  what do those specific things mean to you?

While there are many generally accepted meanings to certain things, we have to remember that context and our own personal experiences, are key to understanding them. So while one person may dream of being at the beach, and think it is the most beautiful dream in the world – to someone who has an absolute fear of drowning, dreaming of being at the beach might very well be a nightmare to them.

In regards to your specific question – we’ll be completely honest and say that we have absolutely no idea what your dream might mean. Several of us got together and pondered it and nothing immediately jumped out at us. I’ve included links to some general meanings, however I would take this opportunity to ask some of our fellow readers, if you have any insight on this, please feel free to comment below. We would gladly welcome any assistance, as it pains us not to be able to offer even some sort of basic idea.

Potentially relevant as well, is the fact that sometimes, a dream is just a dream – so it could be that there really isn’t any sort of meaning behind it, other than you ate too much spicy food before you went to bed, or something that you saw on TV during the day decided to have a bit of fun with you while you were sleeping.

Some things to ask yourself…

  • Did you recognize the boy in the dream? Was it you, or someone you know, or someone completely random?
  • Do those particular colors mean anything to you?
  • Does the number 3 hold any special significance to you?

  1. I agree with what is written. Dream books are a bunch of nonsense because every symbol is subject to one’s own view and interpretation. I have done quite a bit of studying on dream interpretation, and really, the only ones I can ever interpret is that of people who are really close to me and of which I know their basic daily life situations.

    There are many factors to take into account. Sometimes we dream about the last thing on our minds before we fall asleep. Other times, there is something that occurred during the day that comes to the forefront of our dreams (i.e. We saw someone that brought up a memory, and so dream something about the person ot situation in perhaps another form). There can also be external influences that affect us while we sleep (i.e. it’s too hot in our room so we dream about walking in the desert.)

    To be able to interpret one’s own dreams, you have to be really, really honest with yourself. Often times dreams will tell us something about what is going on in our subconcious, sometimes things we don’t want to acknowledge or admit to ourselves. On top of that, our dreams don’t communicate to us in straightforward terms most of the time. It is coded, which is why it is called an interpretation. We have to sort of break the code to find it’s true understanding and everyone has their own dream language.

    If you want to learn more, I recommend reading the following books: The Forgotten Language by Erich Fromm and The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud. There are many others, but I think these two books are a great start and offer an understanding that many others sometimes don’t see.
