1. The traditional interpretation

Seeing a face in a dream often symbolizes an aspect of your personality or a specific relationship. That's the most simplistic interpretation.

The expression on the face can provide further insight into your feelings or attitudes. Dreaming of your own face changing suggests personal growth or transformation. You may be undergoing a period of self-discovery or embracing new aspects of your identity. Both dreams indicate a focus on self-reflection and personal development.

A face can be a complex dream object to pin down. To really know for certain, I would have to really dig deep into the dreamer's life and current circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of a face, Freud would argue, is an encounter with the 'other' within oneself, a manifestation of the unconscious aspects of our psyche.

Thinking a bit more creatively... The visage observed may embody latent emotions or suppressed desires. If the face is familiar, it may represent an internalized relationship dynamic. Conversely, dreaming of one's own face morphing is a potent symbol of metamorphosis. It signifies the ego's struggle with self-concept, perhaps indicating a shift in self-perception or an internal conflict between the 'id' and the 'superego'. Both scenarios underscore the psychoanalytic principle of introspection, suggesting a deepening engagement with the self's hidden dimensions.0

Dreaming of seeing a face is a spiritual encounter with your inner self, a reflection of your soul's journey. The face's expression can reveal your soul's current state, mirroring your spiritual progress or challenges. On the other hand, dreaming of your own face changing signifies a spiritual transformation. It's a divine message that you're evolving, shedding old layers of your spiritual self, and embracing a new phase of spiritual growth. Both dreams are spiritual mirrors, reflecting your inner journey and personal evolution. They invite you to delve deeper into your spiritual self, encouraging self-awareness and spiritual growth.
