About Nancy Wagaman, M.A.
Dream Symbol: shortcut
Finding a shortcut can represent the idea of having an advantage or making a process easier somehow in your life.
Someone taking an unethical shortcut (cheating, cutting in line, lying to get out of something, etc.) can represent the idea of dishonesty, trying to gain false power, taking unfair advantage, or not playing by the rules. This can mean:
- You feel taken advantage of somehow in real life
- You are reacting to what you perceive as a power play
- You resent someone you feel is or has been trying to control you (possibly an authority figure)
Dreaming that you are taking a dishonest shortcut can mean that you honestly don't want to do the work or spend the time, you are not interested in something you have to do, or you dread doing something.
Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
