Mirror

Symbol of imagination and conscience. It reproduces the reflections of the visible world. Therefore, this instrument allows you to glimpse your true personality, or whatever you are hiding. Generally mirrors in the dreams demonstrate the individual’s low communication with her inner world. If the mirror lets you see a positive image of yourself it suggests that you are satisfied with your character and current situation. Otherwise, it evidences fear of disclosing shameful desires. Finally, if you are in front of a mirror with your eyes closed it indicates that you are unwilling to face reality. Clearly alluding to narcissism, the mirror is, according to Freud, an emblem of conceit. According to the Jungian school, however, it is a symptom of introspection, a need to return to the true essence of the subject’s unconscious saving the façade that tends to be the public face. A broken mirror is a harbinger of grief and pain. To break it with your own hands denotes inability to recognize your own mistakes.
