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!
What were you wearing in your dreams last night?
Did you know that clothing and what we wear during our nighttime journeys is an
important key to understanding the whole message of the dream?
The clothes we wear or don’t wear in our dreams represents our ideas of how we look to others, our outward appearance like our attitudes, emotions true or “put on”, and ideas. The outfits can represent your style, fashion and your self-esteem.
For me, I often remember what I am wearing in my dreams, the colors, fabric, and fit, designer and maybe that is because I love fashion and clothing. After all I
have been in the fashion business for many years now, as my other career! But I find it very helpful to understanding my dream message by starting with what I am wearing in the dream. Was I wearing something I normally wear? Was it colorful? Were my clothes dirty or clean? Were they beautiful and expensive? Or was I wearing something inappropriate or out of place, like pajamas at work?
Here are a few dream interpretations of fashion and what we wear or don’t wear in our nightime journeys:
Beautiful, Expensive, Designer Clothing: a beautiful attitude, love, luxury, kindness, graciousness. Also indicates your level of self-worth and pay attention to the designer or brand you are wearing because those brands carry their own energy and attitude. For example: If I am wearing a beautiful Chanel gown I know what the brand Chanel means to me so that is added personal dream interpretation.
Weird or Strange clothes: Like a clown suit at a business meeting. This would indicate that you feel ridiculous in this situation or you have a funny attitude about the situation.
Favorite Clothing: This is your familiar comfortable ideas and beliefs, known and suitable.
Clothes that don’t fit: An attitude that doesn’t fit with your overall life and beliefs presently. Or something that is not suitable for you.
Too Big: Could indicate you need to “grow into” this attitude, lifestyle, if you happen to like the outfit. If you don’t like the outfit then the idea is not for you. Let it go.
Too Small: This could mean that you have outgrown this attitude or lifestyle, or ideas. That you need to find “your size” that fits you just right.
I would love to hear what you are wearing in your dreams. Share with me your thoughts on your dream outfits.
I will go further on this subject in my next post.
Until then, I wish you many blessings and
Falling in your dream is basically waking back up – the action of returning to consciousness.
The old tale that if you fall and hit the ground in your dream that you will die in your sleep IS NOT TRUE. If you hit the ground in the dream, you will bounce right back and the dream will continue… falling at this point would have the meaning of “falling from grace” or “fall on your face” = embarrassment. It is a play on words, falling in love, heading for a fall, falling down on the job, etc.
Drowning in dreams means you are in a situation that you feel you are in over your head, being in too deep, overwhelmed or emotionally overcome. If you dream you are drowning in muddy or murky water this indicates you are overwhelmed emotionally. There is always a possibility that it is an ESP warning. It is important that you note the background of the dream and your emotions/feelings in the dream.
