Eyes are complex dream symbols and can be interpreted by considering the dreamer's experiences and the details in the dream (as is the case with all dream symbols). Some say that the eyes are the windows for the soul. Eyes symbolize perceptiveness, personal outlook, clairvoyance, curiosity, and knowledge. They also reveal information about personal identity and suggest to the dreamer what they should pay attention to. Closed eyes are said to represent fear and an unwillingness to see clearly. Superstition-based dream interpretations say that if the eyes in your dream are beautiful they represent peace. Crossed eyes may be an unconscious warning about someone’s character, integrity, or misperceptions.
Light, traditionally, is equated with the spirit (9). Ely Star asserts that
the superiority of the spirit is immediately recognizable by its luminous intensity. Light is the manifestation of morality, of the intellect and the seven virtues
(54). Its whiteness alludes to just such a synthesis of the All. Light of any given
colour possesses a symbolism corresponding to that colour, plus the significance
of emanation from the ‘Centre’, for light is also the creative force, cosmic energy irradiation (57). Symbolically, illumination comes from the East. Psychologically
speaking, to become illuminated is to become aware of a source of light, and, in
consequence, of spiritual strength (32).
To see light in your dream, represents illumination, clarity, guidance, plain understanding, and insight. Light is being shed on a once cloudy situation or problem. You have found the truth to a situation or an answer to a problem. Also consider the color of the light for additional significance.

In Christian symbolism the well falls within the group of ideas associated with the concept of life as a pilgrimage, and signifies salvation (4). The well
of refreshing and purifying water is symbolic of sublime aspirations, or of the
‘silver cord’ which attaches man to the function of the Centre. Demeter and other
deities were shown standing beside a well (15). But this symbol is found not only
in the higher cultures of Antiquity but also among the primitives. Schneider has
noted that, in the medicinal rites of peoples at the animistic level, the centre of the
scene is taken up by a lake or well in whose water the sick wash their hands,
breast and head. At the water’s edge, reeds grow and shells are to be found, and
both are signs of the waters of salvation (51). In particular, the act of drawing
water from a well is—like fishing—symbolic of drawing out and upwards the
numinous contents of the deeps (31). To look into the waters of a lake or well is
tantamount to the mystic attitude of contemplation. Finally, the well is also a
symbol of the soul, and an attribute of things feminine (32).
