Even if parts of one’s body or face are shown in a dream to be distorted or abnormal, such a dream is not usually referring to the physical body. Our own idea or image of what sort of person we are is translated in dreams into our body form. We might dream our face looks subnormal mentally, or our body has strange areas. This refers to an internal sense of ourselves not having developed to our full potential, or of psychological hurts having distorted some aspect of ourselves, such as our ability to reach out for help. See: body.
