A dream about wearing a blindfold signifies feelings of being restricted or limited in some aspect of your life. But the meaning can vary.

It may also indicate a refusal to accept reality or fear of the unknown.

Alternatively, dreaming about someone else being blindfolded suggests your concern about their lack of awareness or understanding. It could also be a kind of your desire to control or manipulate them. Both of these dreams highlight a need for clarity and open communication in your waking life.

A blindfold is rich and colorful dream symbol to offer a definitive opinion on. To say without any doubts, it would be necessary to get an understanding of the dreamer's life and current circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of donning a blindfold may symbolize a self-imposed ignorance or denial, a Freudian defense mechanism known as 'Verleugnung'.

The dream-symbol can have many permutations however. It could reflect an unconscious attempt to avoid confronting uncomfortable truths or emotions. Conversely, witnessing another blindfolded in your dream may suggest projection, another Freudian concept, where you attribute your own denial or ignorance onto another. This could indicate an unconscious recognition of your own avoidance tactics. Both of these dreams underscore the psychoanalytic principle of 'the return of the repressed', hinting at the need to face what has been pushed into the unconscious.0

Dreaming about wearing a blindfold signifies a spiritual journey where you are being guided by faith, not by sight. It suggests a period of introspection and self-discovery, where you are encouraged to trust your intuition and inner wisdom. Conversely, seeing someone else blindfolded in your dream symbolizes your spiritual responsibility to guide others. It may indicate that you are being called upon to help others navigate their own spiritual journeys, even when they are unable to see the path ahead. Both of these dreams emphasize the importance of faith, trust, and spiritual guidance in your waking life.
