How to interpret a dream about a forest?
As a general rule, a forest is believed to be the symbol of unconsciousness. Forest are a dark, mysterious, vast space, the residence of the unknown. As a result, it is easy to get lost in a forest.
If we are dreaming about a forest, we may suspect that we are dreaming about our unconsciousness. This is because a forest in our dream is the vegetative aspect of our unconsciousness: life, growth, primitive instincts, Mother Nature. On the contrary to an ocean, which is another archetypical symbol, a forest has friendly aspects. It can be a shelter, it is smaller, more limited and explorable, while an ocean is always vast, unsafe, dangerous and infinite.
Also a forest appearing in our dream may be the symbol of the need or desire to escape the reality – to regain and revive our energy – it usually happens when we are dreaming about a lush, healthy, beautiful, green forest, the one we will feel perfect in. Being in a dark, dense forest may indicate that something in your life is getting complicated, that you are afraid to talk about something, and problems which you can not overcome appear.
