We may feel that we need some spiritual guidance, and this can sometimes be symbolized as a torch.
A searchlight, in pinpointing and lighting the way ahead, enables us to reject the unnecessary.

A searchlight, being more focused, can symbolize the insights we need.
Material aspects: In dreams, a torch can represent self-confidence. It can also suggest the need to be able to move forward, but at the same time carry our own light. Firebrands, having an open flame, will have the same symbolism as fire, whereas a battery torch signifies a more contained energy.
