Probably many of us have at least once had a dream about wandering the endless river of time. Of course, travelling through time in a dream does not symbolize a physical moving in a time machine that we can often see in sci-fi movies. Usually the events in a dream are taking place in another time period ¬– in the future or in the past. Such dreams are not infrequently associated with romantic feelings experienced in the past, or desires that have not yet come to life in reality.
Time travelling in a dream symbolizes a search for truth, search for yourself as a personality. The relationship that you see in a dream, to a large extent reflects the relations with the people around you in a real life.
A dream is induced by the desire to identify yourself with people having different tempers and morals, creating in the imagination the images of heroes, gentle knights present in the life that enraptures but is not consistent with reality.
The people or mystic characters you meet on your way in such dream, reflect the area of your mind that has some inconsistencies disturbing you in reality.
According to the dream-book by Loffe, a dream featuring a time travel it’s a desire of a person to find the way to achieve a life balance that will allow him/her to find his/her place in the world. If you saw in a dream a travel to the past, this means that your romantic desires will soon come to life.
According to the dream-book by Meneghetti, a time travel seen in a dream points to a move from a certain situation to another one, and this move will be associated with worries and anxieties – this may be a change of scene, e.g. a long-awaited vacation, as well as some changes in a dreamer’s emotional state, reconsideration and revaluation of important life principles and positions, etc.
The classic English dream-book says that dreams about time travels point to a dreamer’s passionate and high mind suffering from being unable to affect the course of events.
There is also the interpretation according to which a dream featuring a travel to the past means that you are not happy enough at the present time in a real life. Such dream shows that you would be happier in the simpler world with a slower pace of life. A dream about travelling to the future means that you have a curious mind, and are totally directed towards the future.
