Nap Dream Symbol


Nap – A nap symbolizes a period of rest and escape from the responsibilities and requirements of the day. There may be some responsibility in your life that is overwhelming you, causing you to dream about taking naps in order to find peace and tranquility. This dream symbol is likely an indication of physical exhaustion, as well, and the frustration of working hard every day when not thoroughly rested, only to repeat the process again the next day.

There may be some sort of emotional attachment to sleep as a means of taking care of yourself. Keep in mind in your dreams as well as in your waking life that you cannot take care of others if you do not take care of yourself first. If you begin dreaming of a need like this, take it seriously. Alternatively, dreaming about napping or sleeping, especially if you dream of not being able to wake up, may be an indication of sleep paralysis.
