In this article, we will be looking at what it means to dream about guitars.
Dream Symbol Meaning of a Guitar
If we think about guitars, it is not unusual to imagine music. There are so many types of music that our dreams about guitars can be varied. It is a good idea to consider the other symbols in the dream as well to make sure you get the full picture.
In general, people who dream about guitars are extroverts and are not afraid to say what they think. Those who are creative could also dream about guitars. Perhaps the dream is a sign to start pursuing your artistic tendencies. In addition, guitars can be a sign of passion or desire.
Creativity and Expression:
Music is an excellent way of expressing feelings, just by the choice of a song. If you are feeling miserable, you may dream that you are playing or listening to a sad song. If you’re on top of the world, you may hear a cheerful number or one you can dance to. A guitar is a great way to communicate thoughts and feelings as it has its own language.
Some people regard guitars as a way of expressing their spirituality. Guitars are often used in folk Masses and other religious celebrations. To dream of a guitar being played at a religious ceremony can mean that you are connecting with your spiritual side.
Peace and Harmony
If a guitar is played well, the musician will play different notes at the same time creating a harmonious sound. To hear this in a dream can make you feel at peace with the world. It can also be a sign that you should follow your dreams. It could be a time in your life where you need to make a choice and once you have done this you will feel less stressed. You never know, you could be in a position where success is on the cards. You just need to take one step to reach greatness.
Power and Amplified Feelings
If you dream of an electric guitar that is plugged into a guitar amp or sound speaker, it can mean that something you are going through in your waking life is going to be amplified. Perhaps you have been working hard at your job to no avail, but the dream could mean that your responsibility is going to be increased and you might even get a promotion.
An alternative meaning to this dream is that you need to make your voice heard. Maybe nobody is listening to you and it is about time that they did.
Community & Gatherings
You often see guitars in a social situation, such as a concert, a religious event, or just around a campfire. If you dream that you are listening to a guitar in any of these situations and you are with friends, it could mean that you want to be closer to the friends you have or make new friends.
Here are Some Common Guitar Dreams:
To dream of someone playing the guitar can mean that you going to have peace and harmony in your life. Perhaps you have been going through a bad time lately, but the tide is going to change, and things are looking up.
To dream of a broken guitar can mean that you are having problems communicating with someone important in your life. Alternatively, maybe you are generally creative, but lately, your creative juices have dried up. It is time to sit down and consider what you want to do with your life and go for it. Every creative person has these feelings at some time in their life.
Another meaning of dreaming about a broken guitar is that you have been disappointed in some aspect of your life. This could either be in your work life or romantically. Maybe it’s time for a change.
Dreaming of a guitar case can mean that you are finding it difficult to tell your friends or family your true feelings. Perhaps your parents don’t like your choice of career, but so far you haven’t been able to discuss the problem. Maybe it is time to talk to them without backing down. It is your life after all.
To play the guitar in a dream can have a couple of meanings. It could be that you are expressing yourself in some aspect of your life. Perhaps you are a musician. If so, the dream is a good omen, and you will achieve the success you want.
On the other hand, you could be looking for a way to express yourself. You will need to think about this carefully and decide what you want out of life. Perhaps it is something artistic or maybe it’s another new career.
An electric guitar can symbolize passion and power. If a man dreams about an electric guitar, it can symbolize his virility. If you aren’t in a relationship, it can also indicate that there is someone who likes you and it is up to you to make the first move. If you have a partner, it can mean that this person trusts and respects you.
If you are a woman and dream about an electric guitar, it is a sign that you want some security in your life. It doesn’t mean that you want to be dominated by a man. Instead, it means that you don’t want to be alone. However, if you are in a relationship and dream of an electric guitar, it can mean that your needs aren’t being met. On the other hand, if the guitar is being played by your partner all is well.
Playing the guitar in a group setting such as a concert can mean that you are going to reconnect with old friends. Maybe you might even make new friends as well.
Dreaming about the neck of the guitar can mean that you are thinking about taking a risk in your waking life. You need to consider if the risk is worthwhile. Perhaps you are thinking of investing in a project. Maybe you need to study more about this investment. Alternatively, you could just be thinking of exploring something new. Perhaps you want to travel somewhere or simply, start a new sport.
If you see the neck of a guitar in a dream it can connect with the saying, ‘sticking your neck out there’ which means that you are willing to take a new step in your life, even if it is risky.
