Dream About Hats: Meaning and Interpretation
Our dreams are often filled with many symbols that we can pay little or no attention to.
All sorts of motifs, everyday objects and things color the realms of our dreams and it’s really hard to remember them all.
However, sometimes an object, phenomenon or a common item catches our attention and we remember everything about it. If so, it means that the object in question carries some significant meaning.
Worldly things, such as clothing and accessories, occur very often in dreams.
Sometimes they’re not much more than a decoration, but even if something ‘bigger’ was there, they all play a role in sending a message.
If a particular item stands out for any reason, it has to be more inside it. It usually happens that a dreamer remembers a particular item, knowing it was important.
Today we are talking about hats! The hat is a pretty common motif in a dream, if we think of it as the complete category that includes all kinds of hats, not just a classic hat.
In waking life, hats have both a protective and a decorative function.
Their symbolism derives directly from their function, so hats represent hiding places, secrets, self-defence, mystery, but also status, need for attention and the opposite and so on.
Dreams with hats
What does a hat in a dream mean? It depends, of course, on the details, a hat type and activities related to that hat in your dream.
The basic meanings of hat dreams can be divided into two basic categories, hiding and attracting attention, but there are additional meanings.
The hat is an affirmation, as is a veil of secrets and a protective shield. What was the hat like in your dream?
Was it you using it or was it someone else doing it? Were you buying a hat or did you just see one? Was it new and fancy or was it old and worn?
These are just several questions you could ask yourself to get the deeper meaning of your hat-related dream.
Let’s find out what specific hat dreams have to say. Let’s start by seeing a hat in a dream.
See hats in a dream
If you happen to see a hat in a dream, but no one wears it, it symbolizes secrets. It may represent secrets that you hide and are not especially willing to share.
You look for a way to bury them, to hide them; perhaps even from yourself.
The hat is an opportunity to hide secrets. It may also reflect your suspicion about other people hiding things from you.
If you see a lot of hats around you in a dream, it indicates that you are surrounded by false friends, people who pretend to be what they weren’t. If all hats are black, it suggests that those around you are not only hiding their true faces, but their intentions towards you are not the best.
It could also mean that you feel exposed to a certain environment and feel like you don’t know how to play by their rules.
If these hats came in a lot of colors, it means you really have no idea who to trust to wake up your life.
They all offer very interesting ideas, but you’re suspicious of those who mean well and those who don’t.
This dream indicates that you are insecure and easily seduced by attractive suggestions. You don’t think out of your own head, but you surrender to the influence of others.
The dream occurs to remind you to do otherwise and to start thinking clearly about your decisions. Don’t let others seduce and manipulate you.
Wear a new hat in a dream
If you dream of wearing or buying a fancy new hat it means you are lucky and lucky.
This dream indicates that your work will pay off and people will admire and respect you. This dream is an indicator of a deserved and positive reputation.
The dream also suggests that you are a person who likes to show off. You have every right to do so. You can be a very confident person who is not afraid to show your worth.
If the hat was expensive and classy, it indicates your good taste. It means that people really admire your attitude as much as your style.
You must be happy with who you are, even though in reality you may be going through difficult times.
The dream is a reminder of your worth and the reward and wonder that comes after a difficult time.
Wearing an old, worn hat in a dream
If you were wearing an old hat and thorn in your dream, it reflects humility and modesty.
Contrary to what you might think, this dream does not indicate that you will be poor and miserable, but just the opposite.
However, it does not necessarily indicate any material success, but something that matters more.
This dream indicates that people around you appreciate, admire and love who you are, even if you don’t realize it.
The dream suggests that you should value yourself as a person. It can be an indicator of success in terms of receiving honor and respect for some of your noble deeds.
You are an open hearted person and you must believe in yourself.
The dream also suggests that there are much more important things in life, even though our financial and material aspects really matter a lot.
Wearing an old hat can have completely different issues to do with. Maybe it means you’re not ready to make any changes in your life and throw away old habits.
In fact, you are unwilling to change and you remain stubborn in your attitudes. Think about whether this was really good for you.
You are stuck in the moment and are holding yourself back from moving forward, perhaps out of fear or simply a lack of enthusiasm and motivation.
Dreaming of a hat falling off your head
The dream indicates that its mysteries will all be revealed and secrets no longer hidden. It can mean different things.
For example, you’ve been trying to maintain a reputation as a mysterious person, hard to get to know, maybe a little cold and reserved, but slowly you let someone get closer.
Your shield and veil are gone. You may feel vulnerable and exposed, but in this case, it’s not a bad thing.
On the other hand, it may indicate secrets that you have been trying to keep to yourself will eventually see the light of day.
They can even be lies about something important, regardless of whether you told the end for good or bad intentions. Anyway, this dream indicates facing reality and the consequences of your own doing.
People will see you in ‘real light’, for better and for worse.
Throw away or destroy a hat in a dream
If you threw away a hat in a dream or tried to get rid of it or even destroy it in any way, it means you are tired of withholding and keeping secrets.
Perhaps you are a trustworthy person that others confine, but you can no longer carry your burdens.
Maybe there are things you kept to yourself just because you wanted to look better in the eyes of others.
No matter the initial reason, you don’t want to hide anything anymore.
Lose a hat in a dream
This dream indicates a dreamer’s insecurity and lack of self-confidence. You need your hat to defend yourself and put a wall between you and the world.
Now you have lost it and you feel disturbed and confused.
The dream may reflect such feelings that you are aware of in reality.
It can also indicate that the time has come to build your self-confidence. You must boldly step forward without putting steel walls around your personality.
