Before the universe began it was thought there existed a disordered state of unformed matter and infinite space. Spiritually therefore in dreams chaos is a representation of Source and the beginning of all things. There is, though, an underlying pattern, which may not be immediately apparent. A disorderly mass or jumble of thoughts and ideas which have not yet crystallized is experienced as chaos. They appear erratic and unpredictable. Chaos and confusion in dreams represent the changes over which we have no control. If we find ourselves trying to establish order then we are usually gaining insight into either our own state of mind or difficult situations around us.
