The esteemed psychologist, Carl Jung, believed that dreaming about hats was a symbol of your actual thoughts. It stands to reason - you put hats on your head and what exists inside your head, if not your thoughts?

The Sorting Hat in Harry Potter is a prime example - this wily and sharp character could read every thought you ever had!

Dreaming Changing Hats

If you dream that you are constantly changing hats or find yourself wearing various hats throughout it, it could be a sign of your own personal growth.

This could mean that your thought patterns are changing and this is usually a good sign, especially if you feel comfortable with the hat-changing in your dream.

Dreaming Of Having A Spectacular Hat

If you dream your hat is prettier, taller, grander or anything else which makes it stand out from other people’s hats (or stand out from others in general!) then this is an indication that you are different from others in some way and you are beginning to accept yourself for who you are.

This dream often shows that you are going through a transformational period and you should embrace it.

Dreaming Giving A Hat As A Present

If you dream that you are giving a hat as a present to someone it indicates that you are offering someone words of wisdom or advice in your waking life.

How the person accepts the gift is important. If they reject it, they may not be keen to take your advice in the waking world. If, however, they are grateful for it and accept it with joy, it indicates that your advice has been taken on board.

Dreaming About Losing Your Hat

This dream could mean that you do not feel in control of your thoughts in your waking life.

It could be that the opinions of others are having too powerful an effect on you and you are losing your sense of individuality. It could also mean that you feel your thoughts are stifled by others. Someone may be having too much control over you.

If you dream of losing your hat but you find it again, this could mean that you are taking back control of your individual thought process and becoming more of your true self.
