Many people think that the universe has a surprise for them when they see a hero appear in their dream. We quickly forget that we are the creators of our dream experiences. If you see a hero in your dream you are making a very powerful statement to yourself. Either you see yourself as a hero to someone, or you need a hero in your life. Maybe someone in your life shows up as a hero and this is unexpected in your dream, such as your 79 year old neighbor for example. These types of symbols often direct us to people in our lives that can offer us more than we originally anticipated. Perhaps your 79 year old neighbor has the current answer to your vegetable garden project for example and will ‘save the day’ for you with their wisdom. Examine the surroundings in your hero dream to determine what the latent meaning is for your specific life and situation.
