Dream About Not Being Able To Open Eyes & Its Spiritual Meaning

The dream about not being able to open eyes is a common nightmare. After all, the idea of not being able to open your eyes in real life is scary. The first time I had this dream, I was horrified and wondered what it could mean. Since I had this dream more than once, I started searching for its meaning in old paperback books from my grandmother’s collection.

Below is the meaning of a dream about not being able to open eyes that I was able to find and which was passed down from generation to generation. You might be surprised by what it means and says about your life!

What does it mean when you can’t open eyes in a dream?

Let’s look at the three interpretations I managed to collect. Notice the same pattern in all interpretations, which is that your eyes are closed to the truth or some reality, both intentionally or unintentionally.

#1 Interpretation

If you’ve ever had a dream where you can’t open your eyes, it’s likely because something in your waking life is preventing you from seeing things as they are. That might be an issue with your relationships, at work, home, or school, or it could even be a person. You don’t want to see it because you’re afraid that if you do, you’ll learn the truth you don’t want to know.

This is a bit of a bizarre example, but it could be a photo of your partner’s current girlfriend who told you a few months ago that he wasn’t cheating on you. Or, for example, information about the harmful product you like and would not give up. However, you do not want to know this information.

It’s simply something you knowingly don’t want to see. Either because you are afraid or because you don’t want to know the truth.

#2 Interpretation

If you had this dream, it might signify that you need to pay more attention to something in your life. It may be a sign that there is something you need to address or change.

Often this dream refers to problems you do not want to solve for some reason. For example, you don’t want to open your email inbox because you’re afraid there will be appeals to pay something. Or you’re not paying off debts or are trying to avoid them.

#3 Interpretation

The last meaning of this dream I found caught my eye because it accurately described my situation. The old dream dictionary says that if you dream that you cannot open your eyes, you have something or someone in your life who is lying or hiding something from you as if they want you to keep your eyes closed to reality. It’s like they blind you and don’t let you see the world with your own eyes. It doesn’t necessarily have to be just a person, but also television or the news, where false information is broadcast. You are blinded by this information and cannot open your eyes to the truth because of it.

Bottom Line

These were the three interpretations of the dream about not being able to open eyes. So, if you had this dream, or if it is a recurring dream, ask yourself: “what is it I don’t want to see?” or “why can’t I open my eyes to the truth?” Remember, just because we overlook something or try not to see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Therefore, if you have any official problems, it is better to deal with them sooner rather than later.
