Happy Valentine’s Day!
Sending some love out to all of you today! Below are some common themes and symbols of love in our dreams!
Love itself is a feeling of great fondness, strong affection, something or someone cherished. Love has so many degrees of feelings, from generic, impersonal to passionate, deep desire and intimacy. There is platonic love, familial love, romantic love, religious love, on up to deep passionate desirable heart, soul and body on fire love! And just being in love with life and not a particular person, place or thing but all encompassing love can bring more love to you and that is always a good thing! As the song goes “Love Makes The World Go Round!”
Here are a few LOVE dream symbols and themes their possible meanings:
Flowers: In our dreams flowers symbolize beauty, kind thoughts, loving thoughts, joy, compassion, grace, healing and abundance. They can also be “time tellers” as certain flowers are associated with particular times of the year.
To be given or receive a floral bouquet in your dream symbolizes love, affection, appreciation and admiration. In a dream, when you receive flowers as a gift pay attention to the type of flower(s) in the bouquet and the color(s) to understand the fullest meaning.
A rose is the symbol of spiritual love, beauty, Christ love. One that is also fragrant in the dream is a good indication that an angel or spiritual being is close to you.
White Rose(s): Pure, unconditional love, holy or cosmic love
Pink Rose(s): Love, affection, kindness and compassion
Red Rose(s): Romantic love, personal love, being in love, passion and desire
Tulips: Can be a play on ‘two lips’ kissing! They represent joy and spring, hope, faith and charity.
Candy: How sweet it tastes! If you are eating candy in your dream and it tastes good can mean the situation is sweet and can also mean that you will be receiving a refund of money that you have already paid.. hello Tax Refund anyone??
Chocolate: Eating chocolate means you will prosper after you have overcome some small challenges
Colorful and Bright Dreams: One of the ways our dreams tell us about our emotions is through color. Dreaming in color or of a particular color that stands out on an object, clothing, background etc. represents emotions attached to the color. Love and romance are represented by the colors: pink, red, wine, blue and violet.
Doves: Love, happiness and joy will reign supreme in your relationship
Kissing: To dream about kissing someone or being kissed can obviously be romantic and is a show of love and affection. However, if the kiss is in a non-romantic way or the overall feeling of the dream is negative then this could indicate deception. As in the Judas kiss.
Love: Dreaming that your love is not reciprocated indicates you feeling not so hot about a situation or conflict that causes indecision and not knowing what to do or which way to go. If this relates to business then go with your intuition and gut feeling for the best decision; if it relates to a relationship/marriage be thoughtful in your decisions not impulsive. To dream that you love an animal symbolizes that you are very happy with waht you possess and are easily satisfied.
Okay, I am purposely not adding S-E-X to this list because it deserves it’s very own blog post. In dreams sex can mean many different things and so I will post very soon on this topic for dreams! As for Valentines Day I hope you get what you want in all areas of love ;o)
To wrap it up, there are many more symbols of love and each of us has our own special symbols of love in addition to common ones we share. As I always remind you, when interpreting your dreams it is important to ask yourself first for what YOUR personal meaning is for any symbol before looking to any dictionary or someone else’s meaning.
Sweet and Romantic Dreams!
