Dream of seeing your mirror image:
What does it mean to see your mirror image, as in meeting someone who looks almost exactly like you? Many people said they have met their lookalike, aka doppelganger. It is possible as there can only be so much permutation in the composite facial looks for humans. We are bound to find people who resemble another person so closely as to wreck confusion in the identity.

Is there some aspect that calls to your focus? Have you started a new trend in fashion dressing or life style? You may be deviating from your old way of doing something.

Alternatively, your mirror image can be your alter ego, trying to emerge.

Dreaming of the other side of the mirror:

Have you ever dreamed that you were able to pass through a mirror by waking through it? If yes, what did you see on the other side of the mirror?Some dreamers have shared their experiences. They said they saw a parallel universe after they walked through the mirror. The dream interpretation would be that the dreamer has not been living at their maximum best potential in their waking life. The dream’s mirror represents the doorway to another universe, which may show them what they can be, after they achieve self-actualization.

A research study conducted by Levitan and LaBerge (1993) tested how dreamers could control their dreams. While awake,dreamers were instructed to dream about walking through a mirror. 86 % of the participants succeeded in dreaming of passing through the mirror. They then saw various imagery which were different from what they saw in waking life. However, some of these dreamers did not see anything extraordinary. The researchers said dreamers are yet to learn how to control the stability of dream imagery. This was why the created dream world had no lasting stability, meaning dreamers would see different dreams each time they fell asleep.
