What It Means When You Dream About A Bridge

When you dream, your body cycles through the subconscious mind to unveil your innermost desires (via the Kentucky Counseling Center). Furthermore, dream analyst and psychologist Calvin Hall believes that dreams have inherent meaning because the images that appear in our dreams consist of elements of our everyday lives (via Healthline). So, whether you dream about someone, a specific place, or a certain object, do not disregard it, because if most sources are to be believed, your dream has meaning. All you need to do is to find out what it means and how it connects to the desires on your mind. In fact, DreamBank builder William Domhoff once said in an interview with Daily Mail that dreams are "very revealing of what's on our mind," before adding, "We have shown that 75 to 100 dreams from a person give us a very good psychological portrait of that individual."

"Give us 1,000 dreams over a couple of decades and we can give you a profile of the person's mind that is almost as individualized and accurate as her or his fingerprints," he added. Moreover, some dreams are a lot more common than others, according to Insider. For instance, dreams that involve bridges are one of the most common dreams, per Psychic Blaze. Additionally, Auntyflo explains that a good number of people send her emails telling her about the bridges they see in their dreams.

So, what does it mean when you dream about a bridge?

Dreaming about a bridge has something to do with your future

Dreaming about a bridge has both positive and negative interpretations, depending on the factors surrounding the bridge in the dream (via Dream Dictionary). Bridges generally serve as connectors between places. So, when you dream about a bridge, it means that you're likely to go through a transitory phase of your life, per Psychic Blaze. It could also mean the beginning of a new journey for you, as the bridge might be carrying you from your present life to your future, per AloDreams.com.

Dreaming about a bridge also suggests that you're likely to overcome a disturbing challenge or barrier, per Luciding. If you dream about finding a bridge in a place you weren't even expecting to find one, it means that you're likely to find help and support from people you probably just met (via Check My Dream). On the other hand, if you find yourself dreaming about a collapsing bridge, it indicates failure, but if you find yourself destroying a bridge with your own hands, it means that you wish to dissolve a relationship with someone. All of these meanings relate back to change and movement, whether physically or metaphorically. So, if you're dreaming about bridges, are you ready to face the water's rapids underneath?
