A mirror in dreams is a very mystical symbol. While some cultures believe that a mirror can reflect our soul, others see the mirror as a secret gate or entrance to another world or dimension.
If you recently had a dream about a mirror, you might be interested in its meaning and hidden symbolism.
Spiritual Meaning of Mirror Dreams
Generally, a dream about mirrors is a metaphor for seeing yourself objectively and recognizing your flaws. Being able to see yourself in a mirror makes you self-aware and more humble.
When you dream of mirrors, it could indicate that you have seen through or realized something about yourself. Maybe you realized that you are unique and beautiful or that if you didn’t have the freckles you have on your face, you would be a different person.
Since a mirror is a means that allows us to look at ourselves, in dreams, it could mean self-awareness or even self-acceptance.
The meaning of a dream can vary depending on the context of the entire dream. Below are some dream scenarios.
Dream About Mirror Breaking
A dream about mirror breaking represents unresolved feelings, self-criticisms, insecurities, or self-rejection. If you are standing and looking into a mirror that is breaking, it means that your view of yourself is changing. Maybe you don’t love yourself as much anymore, or you’re starting to believe that you’re worthless or that you don’t deserve something.
Spiritually, the mirror represents a kind of entrance to another dimension, so if the mirror is breaking, it could also mean that you stop believing in something, probably in some philosophy, religion, or even your goals. You are losing faith, or one might say faith is crumbling before your eyes.
According to several superstitions, a broken mirror predestines misfortune and death. And although these are superstitions that are not based on truth, a broken mirror in dreams is not a good sign.
Dream About Mirror Falling Off Wall
The dream of the mirror falling off the wall symbolizes the loss of something that you value and rely on or that is important to you. Again, superstitions believe that a mirror falling from a wall means death. In dreams, however, I perceive this act rather as the loss of something valuable for you.
A mirror falling from the wall can represent the end of a relationship or employment or the loss of a physical item such as a wallet or keys. If the mirror broke, it predicts a painful loss that the dreamer will have to come to terms with.
Dream About Mirror Falling Off Wall And Not Breaking
If you dream of a mirror falling off the wall and not breaking, it could foretell a temporary loss or temporary separation (for example, your partner will have to go on a trip abroad for several months.)
Dream About The Surface Of A Mirror
To dream of a mirror surface, for example, on land, water, or anywhere else, represents your anxieties or fears that haunt you everywhere. The mirror image is a manifestation of the unconscious mind that reflects a part of yourself that you are not aware of or comfortable with.
For example, if you saw an ocean that looked like the surface of a mirror, it could indicate some insecurities about your emotions or relationships (water symbolizes emotions and depth.)
If you walked on ground that looked like a mirror surface, it indicates some problems regarding your place here on earth. Maybe you don’t know where you belong, you don’t know which direction to take, or you don’t know where you really want to live.
Dream About Ghost In Mirror
A dream about ghosts in the mirror means that you are losing your self-confidence, your peace of mind, and your trust in who you are. You are not happy with yourself and your body image. You may feel as if no one cares about you, as if you are a ghost that everyone overlooks, or that you have no place in society.
A ghost in the mirror in dreams is often seen as a sign of feeling worthlessness or inadequacy (you may feel that you are not good enough, for example.)
Meaning In Islam
In Islam, it is believed that looking at your own reflection in the mirror in your dreams may be vanity and a way to satisfy your ego. This dream encourages the dreamer to let drop their ego and trust God.
Meaning In Bible
Biblically, dreaming of a mirror could mean that you are being too materialistic. Mirrors are signs of vanity and self-love, so dreaming of one signifies that you are falling into idolatry or you need to be more humble. Once you let go of your ego and let God, the door to peace and love will be opened.
