Dr. Nereida Gonzalez-Berrios, MD, reviewer and certified psychiatrist of ThePleasantDream, commented, “It’s often believed that dreams manifest your activities and emotions in waking life.
Thus, changes in your real life are bound to impact your dream themes as well. As spring is here, it could be why people dream about it and thus search for it.”
Further highlighting the meaning of dreams about spring, Dr. Nereida adds, “Dream of spring is a representation of mundane issues in one’s life. These dreams signify that a person is letting their mood get out of their hand.
Spring dreams reflect that the dreamer is feeling guilty and they are holding on to repressed emotions and feelings. However, it has a positive connotation, too, wherein it represents healing and magic. It inspires the dreamer to let go of the hidden anger of the past and start afresh.”
