Dreams in which one eye appears indicate the desire to know and to find the truth. Two eyes suggest that you are probably about to have a major revelation. Losing your sight is a sign that you fear being cheated. This dream denotes insecurity and helplessness in the face of all that happens. The eye also represents the masculine sphere, thereby identifying blindness with impotence; have something driven into the eye corresponds symbolically with intercourse. The story of Oedipus going blind after realizing that he unknowingly married his mother, as predicted by the oracle, seems to confirm this correlation of eye-sexuality. However, according to other interpretations, the eyes are "the windows to the soul," a symbol of wisdom that offers clues about our spiritual state. The condition of the eye will give you plenty of information. For example, if the eyes are shining, there is a healthy inner life; it may also indicate psychic awareness and insight. If they are green, however, it is likely that you harbor feelings of envy. (See glasses ) In the mystical tradition, the eyes are a symbol of higher consciousness. It is believed that people have a third eye located above the eyebrows, in the center of the forehead. It perceives other dimensions and spiritual realities. In fact, it coincides in its placement with the gland of the brain that produces the chemicals to control consciousness. Many say that, centuries ago, this eye was real but, eventually, ended up being buried in the forehead. In fact, a species of lizard from New Zealand still has this third ocular member on its head.
