What do emotions mean and symbolize in dreams?

The meaning of emotional dreams. Emotional dreams have realistic influences and reactions, as well as the subjective imagination of the dreamer. Please see the detailed explanation of the emotional dreams below to help you organize them.

Anxiety, pain, extreme disappointment, or strong emotions such as anger and hatred in dreams usually have two meanings.

On the one hand, the emotions in the dream may be the recurrence of emotions many years ago.

They may even be painful past events that you have long forgotten and never mentioned in your life, or deeply depressed emotional experiences. Your consciousness, for the purpose of protecting yourself and keeping your spirit from harm, has deeply suppressed them, but they are actually hidden in the corner of your subconscious.

Sometimes even many years later, certain similar environments in daytime life, or certain small stimuli (switches, conversations, objects, smells), will evoke these subconscious past experiences. So, at night, they reappear in your sleep.

Don’t worry, no matter how strong the emotions in the dream are, this is a self-adjustment of the body, and a relief of the troubles and anxiety buried in your body and mind many years ago.

Sometimes you will even repeat similar scenarios in your dreams, so when you have this dream, it means that your anxiety is being further eased. With the reappearance of dreams, in reality, the shadows of the past are gradually passing away, and you will be fully involved in a new life.

On the other hand, the emotions in the dream may be a reflection of daily life. Each emotion may have other meanings (see specific emotions).
