You might be familiar with the German term doppelgänger or what we might call our “body double” or “look-alike” that is known to have a spookily resemblance of you.
With 7 billion people in the world we are bound to find someone who looks similar to us right? Well according to mythology texts this isn’t just a look a like but an exact replica – one that is known to be evil or harbor bad luck once encountered.
So what happens when you dream of seeing yourself or doppelganger or evil twin in your dream? As strange as these dreams are they actually contain a very valuable message that points you towards the things in yourself that remain unconscious.
Does this actually mean this is a bad omen? Actually this is quite the opposite, in fact seeing yourself in your dream contains hidden secrets that you need to make conscious.
Doppelganger/Seeing Yourself In Dream
Dreams have a strange tendency to send you symbols in a metaphoric manner for you to decode, unfortunately it often leads to most people scratching their heads when they wake up.
Dreaming of a doppelganger or look alike in your dream represents a mirror reflection of yourself, aspects of how you are that remain unconscious. Depending on your interaction with the doppelganger will either determine the good or bad aspects of you. The bad parts commonly known as what Carl Jung described as the shadow side of the dreamer, contains all the evil or bad elements that need to be recognized within you.
The main purpose of noticing yourself in your dream would be to shed light on your own darkness – that which causes destruction and hurt to others. By killing him or her would be considered a good symbol. Often times in your dreams you will encounter the “evil” doppelganger that is out to hurt you – an image for you to be aware of your own inner demons.
Killing The Evil Your In Your Dream?
