Advent Calender Day 1: Stars
Welcome to the first day of the Dream Well advent calender! Today, to start our special seasonal journey, I am writing about stars. We use stars atop our Christmas trees, we wish upon them to make our dreams come true and we get them in our eyes when we are filled with awe and wonder. What better way to start the festive season!
Stars in dreams can have wonderfully profound and positive meanings. Stars can represent our highest ideals, our spiritual Self, our loftiest aspirations and most inspiring goals. Stars can symbolise illumination, the ability to see through confusion to what is most true and real. Stars often relate to optimism, faith and new beginnings.
Stars in dreams can mean that we are achieving our goals or are inspired to set new goals. But stars in dreams may also mean we feel we are “shooting for the stars” and that those goals are unrealistic. Catching, touching or in some other way interacting with stars could be a sign that even those most far fetched plans could actually be achieved.
We use the word “star” to refer to our heroes of film and music, and in this way we can start to understand how a “star” can mean a person. Is there somewhere in your life you are shining brightly, performing in an outstanding way or attracting a lot of attention? Or is there some situation you would like to? Stars in a dream may mean confidence and success, like being a “rock star” or “movie star.”
While stars can mean achievement and success in the material or physical world, stars are often incredibly spiritual signs. Stars are used by many world religions, so if you dream of a star then look to your own religious beliefs to see if this could be a holy message. Perhaps the dream could be reassuring you you are on the right path, or that you are actually closer than you realise to the divine. Even if you are not religious, stars in dreams can be a sign of becoming more enlightened, or of developing a deeper sense of connection with the universe.
Stars in dreams can come when we are seeking ideas, inspiration or guidance. Stars in dreams can come when we need hope or encouragement, they can inspire us to pursue our dreams, to follow our hearts, and to become the person we really wish and ought to be. Stars encourage us to be real, to take a chance, to be open and to try new things. Stars remind us too, that dreams really can come true.
