Sun Dream Symbol – The light of the sun makes all life possible on this planet. Our planet orbits the sun in perfect proximity, and any deviation from that orbit would make this world uninhabitable. If we were too far away, the planet would be too cold. If we were too close, the planet would be too hot. Earth is the Goldilocks of our solar system. Our distance from the sun is the equivalent to the porridge is “just right”.
The sun throughout history has long been the object of awe and worship. Many cultures such as the Hindus, Greeks, and Romans built great temples to the sun. Egyptian culture grew around the idea that the sun was the center of the universe as was personified by the sun god Ra. He was believed the creator and ruler of the world. Jesus, in the Christian tradition, is the Son of God and like the sun, is the Light of the World. The face of God, as described in the Bible, is said to shine brighter than a thousand suns and cannot be looked up by man.
From ancient days to our current times, people called Sun-gazers stare for extended periods of time into the sun for its purported health and spiritual benefits. Sun-gazing however, as a warning to the reader, is not recommended by the health community and can be very dangerous causing permanent eye damage or blindness. The sun is representative of the illumination of the mind and spirit. To dream of gazing at the sun means you are looking for answers and trying to gain wisdom.
The daily journey of the sun from first light in the morning has been an allegory for the life stages of man: from birth to full maturity and eventually to sunset and death. Where is the sun in your dream, just rising or high in the sky? Was the sun in combination with a child or an adult? Depending on the location in the sky it can indicate a new activity or child being born, usually a boy. Being low in the sky, late in the day, can mean the conclusion to a cycle.
Overexposure to the sun can be dangerous. For a human, the inability to keep the body cool can lead to Sunstroke. Plants and animals with no relief from the scorching sun will become dehydrated or die from lack of water. Dreaming that the sun is beating down on you in an unpleasant way could necessitate that you need to change a situation fast. Or quite possibly, face detrimental consequences.
Dreaming of the sun’s heat increasing at an alarming rate should not be ignored and taken as a warning. It can be a call to pay close attention to or seek immediate medical attention for you or the person you are dreaming about. For instance: high fever, rashes, hot flashes, flushing, high blood pressure, or heartburn are all excess of heat within the body. These can be indicators of very severe health issues.
To dream about the sun is in most cases, a very fortunate omen. It is the male creative energy. The sun heralds blessings and messages of good news.
