A reflection seen in a dream has a great deal to do with the way we see ourselves at that particular moment. Our self-image is important to us, as is the way other people see us.

If the reflection is in a mirror, then our image will be perhaps more ‘solid’, whereas one seen in water will be more transient.

The story of narcissus and the way he fell in love with himself (or rather his own image) is a warning to all of us against self-worship.
