I had a dream the other night where I was standing in front of a mirror and I felt like I had something in my left eye. So, I started digging around in my eyeball and popped off the casing of my entire eyeball like it was a contact lens or something. I could still see perfectly it just looked like my left eye was completely white. When it came off if looked like an emptied out cow eyeball like I dissected in middle school. It was really dirty inside, so I started cleaning it out with soap and water until the water inside ran clear. Then I panicked for a moment, not knowing how to get the casing back on my eyeball. I took a deep breath, I was kind of grossed out, and I shoved it back in and my eye was back to normal. What does this mean? – One-eyed lady
I’m so glad you woke up with both eyes intact. You’ve probably heard this a million times, but the eyes are the windows to the soul. In your dreams, the eyes symbolize your connection to the deepest parts of yourself and the way you see the world. Specifically, the left side of your body corresponds with your unconscious mind.
Considering that your left eye is dirty in the dream, I would ask you, how is the state of your soul? Have you been ignoring yourself in an important way? This dream is a reminder that you need to stay connected to your inner self and your spiritual beliefs, whatever they may be. Some unconscious thoughts or negativity may be clouding your vision, holding you back from seeing things clearly. Or perhaps you are making some changes in your life that are making you “see” things differently. Doing a good spring-cleaning of the soul is a good thing. Seeing inside yourself and outside of yourself with clarity is important to your personal growth.
