Usually when we dream about our face, it’s part of a larger dream, and not a dream on it’s own. It’s unusual to have more than a micro-second visual about something happening to part of our face, but if you do have a complete dream where your face is the main subject, the message that’s being sent to you is: “you really need to pay attention to this.”
One common theme is dreaming that your eye falls out. That’s also usually part of a larger dream, but it can happen on it’s own, too. If you dream about this particularly gruesome predicament, it mean that you’re losing your perspective about a situation, thing, or person. The only difference between people who dream this is that some dream that they put their eye back in, signifying that they have corrected the problem, and those that just keep walking along with their eyeball in their hand, signifying that they need to correct the problem.
If you dream that you’re blind, it signifies you’re refusal or inability to see something, whether it be qualities about someone else, facts about something, or ‘the truth’ about a situation. It could be that you’re not able to see whatever it is that you need to see, instead of just not wanting to see it. In any case, this dream is an important one, and you’ll keep dreaming it until you fix the problem…
If you dream about your nose, it can indicate several different things, and you’ll have to remember what else was happening in your dream in order to interpret it. But, besides symbolizing that something’s wrong in your waking life; ‘Something smells fishy’, or ‘His story doesn’t pass the smell test’, your nose represents curiosity or ‘nosiness’; ‘She always has her nose in my business.’ If you dream that your or someone else’s nose is painted brown, the symbolization is that some ‘brown-nosing’ is going on. Sometimes, dreaming of your nose can symbolize the need to follow your instincts; ‘If you want to know what to do, follow your nose.’ It can also indicate a small distance; ‘He won by a nose,’ or represent talents that you have; ‘You have a nose for this.’ It can also mean that you’re rubbing noses with someone, or squeezing into position ‘by a nose’.
And, if you happen to see someone’s nose getting longer in your dream…well, you know what that means…
The most interesting part of your face to dream about is your lips. Many people dream that their lips are glued shut, buttoned shut or zippered shut…no interpretation needed on that, especially if you’ve been talking a little too much lately!
But other dreams can indicate that it’s not how much you’re talking, but the words that you’re using in waking life that are the problem. To dream that your lips are in good condition can mean that your words are very good and beautiful, or, if they’re in bad condition, the way you’re speaking is very bad and ugly. Dreaming that you’re wearing or applying beautiful lipstick (whether you’re male or female) indicates that the way you’re speaking is beautiful, or that you’re trying to speak to people in a lovely way. And in the spiritual sense, trying to be a better person counts with the Almighty, too.
Lastly, if you dream that you’re looking at your face in a mirror, it symbolizes the need for you to ‘reflect’ on your identity, your character, or it can mean that you need to ‘face’ something about yourself or your current situation. If the mirror is broken or breaks while you’re looking in it, it indicates that your perception of yourself is ‘broken’, and that you need help.
If you dream about your face and you can’t make sense of what you saw, write it down in your journal…the meaning might very well come to you later!
