I have a recurring dream that the lights in my house go out, and only the t.v. is on. I check every light switch in the house and none work. Sometimes I can sense someone in the house, but they never appear, and sometimes I can just feel fear. I had this dream every night for MONTHS.
This seems like some kind of nightmare you are having, possibly something to do with a situation that you don’t feel clarity on? Lights in general symbolize illumination, clarity, inner vision, “the light bulb going off” In this dream we have darkness(subconscious world) feeling fears of the unknown and television.
“To see soft or shadowy lighting in your dreams indicates feelings and thoughts from the primal aspects and less developed parts of your subconscious.
To dream that you cannot turn on the light indicates a lack of insight and perspective on a situation.”
What is a Television? It shows programs and realities of your mind. Therefore it sounds like this dream is about clarity of vision within your mind, you keep wanting to turn on the “light” but something is holding you back, Maybe you need a new perspective on a situation in your waking life? Fear of the unknown, fear of where you life is going or a fear of what your subconscious mind brings. The television to me is the most interesting part because it is still showing illumination. The house isn’t completely dark, the program is still running, your mind is still processing,
To dream that you are watching television represents your mind and its flowing thoughts. The dream reflects how you are receiving, integrating, and expressing your ideas and thoughts. The programs you dream of watching are an objective view of the things that are in your mind.
Also the reincurring feeling of this dream also points me to perspective and trying to find clarity. Maybe you need to step out of the picture and try to look from a different perspective. The dark is never really a scary place once you realize you are the light all along
hope this helps!
much love <3
