To dream of a lamp represents someone or something that allows you to easily understand a situation or feel reassured. Guidance, insight, inside information, reassurance, or a helpful resource. Something that allows you to “cast light on a matter” or “regain your bearings” when needed. Something you may feel is important or indispensable to function at full capacity. Feeling comfortable knowing what’s going on.
To dream of a lamp being turned on may reflect a renewed sense of hope, inspiration, insight, or new ideas. Reassurance.
To dream that a lamp is unlit or broken represents your difficulty to understand things clearly or regaining your bearings. Feeling unable to “cast light on a matter.” You may have lost access to a tool to help you function or a social contact that was providing you information. Someone or something that you feel is indispensable to stay current may not be available. You may be feeling confusion, unable to function at full capacity, or “out of the loop.” You may feel misfortune, disappointments, or bad luck.
