A dream about doodling on a piece of paper symbolizes your subconscious mind expressing creativity and individuality. It can be more nuanced than that though.

It suggests a need for self-expression and communication. If you're observing someone else doodle, it may indicate your curiosity about their thoughts or feelings. It could also be a kind of a desire to understand their perspective or a feeling of being an outsider. Both of these dreams highlight the importance of communication and personal expression in your waking life.

A doodle is a somewhat complex dream object to make any kind of definitive analysis about. To know without any doubts, it's really necessary to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's past and current mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of doodling oneself may be a manifestation of the id's desire for spontaneous, unfiltered expression, a yearning for the freedom of the preconscious state.

We can take this reasoning to another level: It could also signify a latent anxiety about the rigidity of societal norms, a rebellion against the superego's constraints. Observing another's doodling, by contrast, may reflect a projection of one's own suppressed creativity or a subconscious attempt to decipher the other's psyche. It could also signify a sense of alienation, a yearning for connection, or a manifestation of the voyeuristic tendencies inherent in the human condition. Both of these dreams underscore the complex interplay between the conscious and unconscious mind, the eternal struggle between the id, ego, and superego.

Dreaming about doodling on paper signifies your spirit's yearning for freedom and creativity, a divine message urging you to express your innermost thoughts and feelings. It's a spiritual reminder to embrace your individuality and communicate your unique perspective to the world. Seeing someone else doodle in your dream, however, symbolizes your spiritual curiosity about others' thoughts and emotions. It's a divine nudge to understand and empathize with their viewpoints, or perhaps a spiritual signal of feeling like an outsider. Both of these dreams are spiritual messages emphasizing the importance of communication, understanding, and personal expression in your journey of life.
