Statue

(Idol) A statue in a dream represents falsehood, inventions, make-shift, fiction, illusion, heedlessness, or a nice looking person who is full of deception. Worshipping a statue in a dream means lying to God Almighty, or that one worships what his mind tells him to worship, whether it is a physical object or a child of one’s imagination. Ifit is a carved wooden statue in the dream, it means that he ingratiates himself to rich people, or to an unjust person in authority through his religion.

If the statue is built from wood in the dream, it means that one seeks religious arguments or disputes.

If the statue is made of silver in the dream, it means that one elicits sexual relationship with his servant, or with a foreign woman, or perhaps just a friendship.

If the statue is made of gold in the dream, it means that one may commit an abominable action, or a religious inequity, or seeks profits from someone at the expense of displeasing God Almighty and consequently, one will suffer financial losses or health problems.

If the statue combines mixed material of bronze, copper, steel, iron, or lead in the dream, it means that such a person uses his religious garb to make profits, and that he often forgets about his Lord. Astatue in a dream also means travels. Seeing a golden or a silver statue in a dream also could mean prosperity. Seeing a bronze statue of a young woman moving around in a dream means a good harvest, prosperity, or travels.

If the statue is bigger than life-size, then it means a fright. Statues in a dream also represent one’s children, his sexual drive, or his determination.

If one sees himself worshiping a statue in a dream, it means that he is engaged in falsehood, giving preference to his personal desires and passions over obeying his Lord’s commands.

If one sees himself worshiping a golden statue in a dream, it means that he will solicit business from someone who worships God Almighty, though he will also suffer losses from such an association. It also means that he will lose his investment and it will show the weakness of his faith. Ifone sees himselfworshiping a statue made of silver in the dream, it means that he uses his religion to make business out of it, or to betray others through it, or that he will solicit the help of someone to do evil, or that he may sexually abuse a young girl who trusts his religious appearance.

If one sees a statue and does not associate it with worship, or if he does not see anyone worshiping it in his dream, his dream then represents financial gains.

A statue in a dream also means to be enamored with a woman or a boy. Statues in a dream also could mean deafness, idiotic behavior, dumbness, attachment to anything in this world, making an idol out of it, such as one’s love and attachment to his position, status, business, wife, beloved, house, or child, etcetera.

If one owns a statue in a dream, it means that he may marry a deaf, or a dumb, or a non-intelligent woman, or that he maybeget a child who will grow up having one or more of these defects. In whatever condition one sees the statue in his dream, it will reflect on any of the above.

A statue in a dream also represents a generation.

If the statue is missing something in the dream, such defect will definitely manifest in one’s society. Seeing a statue in a dream also could reflect one’s strength and determination.

If one breaks a statue, or lames it, or damages it in a dream, it means that he will vanquish his enemy and earn rank and fame. Ifthe statue in the dream portrays a particular woman, or if it is interpreted to represent a specific woman, then she will be quiet, intelligent and serene, or it could mean that she is stupid and has pride....

Ax

An ax is generally associated with destruction. We use it to break things up, and in popular horror movies it is used to kill people.

The ax can also be used to carve and create art, furniture or other tools.

If your dream was violent, then you may be experiencing frustration, anger and hostility.

If there was no violence in your dream, then the ax may be positively interpreted as a symbol of productivity and creativity. Either way, an ax is a powerful tool, and as a dream symbol it may be saying something about your personal power and its expression.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Clothes

Example: I am packing for a holiday, surrounded by a lovely selection of all sorts of clothes. I am matching outfits, shoes, scarves, handbags. It gives me great pleasure. I am wearing an old navy blue dress which is too shon for me. So shon I feel panic because there will not be enough time to change. I am now on the top deck of a bus. I have one bat­tered suitcase and am wearing the same dress, trying vainly to pull it down over my knees. Suitcase bursts open and it is full of old clothes fit for a jumble sale* (Valerie H). Clothes can mean many things, depending upon dream context. In the example the clothes are feelings of pleasure and confidence, and also discomfort and lack of confidence.

In general they indicate the stance or attitudes we use to meet other people or special situations such as work or dan­ger, protection, such as might be given by our feelings of reserve, shyness, anxiety or aggressiveness in fending off sex­ual or other advances, clothes depict self respect and how we see ourselves in society—the difference between what we want and what we feel others want of us; our clothes, espe­cially when we consider their colour, can also express our emotional condition and moods. Constance Newland gives the example of dressing in violet symbolising being inviolate sexually. Overdressed , unable to get clothes off: too cautious in relationships, difficulty in changing attitudes or self image; self protectiveness; avoiding intimacy.

Naked or see-through clothes: example: ‘I am at the doc­tor’s being examined.

It is always the same. I have all my clothes off and he examines me from the roots of my hair down to my toenails. I am just at the point where I am going to ask him for his diagnosis when he fades away’ (Miss L). Desire to be attractive and noticed, as in the example, where Miss L is enjoying an acceptable form of intimacy; being open about what you really feel; fear of other people seeing what you really feel, think and desire; anxiety about not being ade­quate socially, lacking ability to conform to social norm. See nude. Ragged or inappropriate clothes: feelings of inadequacy depressed feelings; rebellion against authority or society. Ar­mour, protective clothing : defences against internal anxieties, past hurts and external intimacy. Other people’s clothes: the social attitudes and responses we have adopted from others. Children’s, teenage clothes in adult’s dream: youthful or im­mature attitudes or behaviour. Undressing: revealing one’s real character; move towards intimacy. Dirty, untidy clothes: difficult or grubby feelings; one’s inner condition, such as an untidy mind, or grubby feeling values. Worn out or old clothes: attitudes ready to be left behind; old habits no longer useful; feeling worn out, old or tired. Tight clothes: being too restricted in attitude; being tight emotionally. New clothes: change in attitudes; new feeling about self. Someone else’s clothes: could be feelings from that person; their attitudes, memories. Man in woman’s clothes: unacceptability of male role, with its connection with breadwinning, aggression, being cannon fodder in war, homosexual tendency; desire for mother. Woman in male clothes: unacceptability of female role, motherhood, housewife; lesbian tendency; desire for fa­ther figure. Clothing inappropnate to dream surroundings: at­titudes or behaviour inappropriate to one’s situation. Chang­ing clothes: altering one’s mode of behaviour, role or mood. Idioms: dress to kill; dress up. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Colours

Example: I was standing in a very beautifully carved chapel or religious place. There seemed to be shadowy nun or monk-like figures around. But it was the exquisite colouring of the place which filled me with a son of ecstasy. Everything was in the most delicate shell pink. In many dreams where colour predominates there are usually strong feelings, as in the example. This suggests colours depict our emotions and feeling tones. Where a dreamer is largely intel­lectual or out of touch with their feelings, the colour would stand in the place of the emotion instead of alongside it, as with SC.

White is the most frequently mentioned colour in the col­lection of dreams used for this book, black next, then blue. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Rose

A symbol of Venus—love and devotion.

The contradiction of blossom and thorn.

The rose plays the same role in the West that the lotus plays in the Orient. Both blossom, producing many thousands of petals, and represent the highest stage of consciousness.

The rose is often a symbol of the self. As a well-known symbol of love, it points to the dreamer’s feeling of security and suggests that he should be more open to love.

The Greek word rodor for rose came from the ancient Greek word for “flowing,” which may have been coined to convey the flow of fragrance from this flower. But this never-ending flow of fragrance from the rose also shortens its life, causing it to wilt rapidly. Because this magnificently flowering, fragrant blossom wilts so fast, it is also considered a symbol of death.

The rose also points to the world beyond, which is the reason that the Catacombs in Rome are decorated with garlands of roses.

The rose also is the harbinger of death in the Oraclesy and it is reported that a few days before their death, bishops would find a white rose on their chair.

The belief in the death-announcing rose has influenced customs in England and Germany, where people have been reluctant to bring roses to a sick person. And if a rose bush produced a green rose—that is, when the petals turned green—as English folklore had it, a family member would die.

It is not only in England that the rose is connected with death. As far back as ancient Rome, every year a festival of the roses was celebrated where the dead were honored. Graves were decorated with wreaths made from roses.

Since time immemorial, what happens in the presence of the rose is not talked about. In antiquity, when a rose was suspended above the table, the meal was taken “sub rosa,” as it was called then, which means that absolutely nothing from the conversation was repeated after the meal.

The early Christians took up this symbolic tradition: the presence of a rose indicated that silence was to be observed when heathens were among them.

The rose as the symbol for silence continued into the 18th century, when, for instance, wooden roses were carved into the woodwork of the confessional and roses were also included in the stucco of the halls of the court.

The rose, like the lotus, is considered the perfect flower, which is one of the reasons why the Christian Church declared it to be the image of wisdom. This was instrumental in the rose becoming a symbol of Christ. Mary is also depicted as a rose, but a rose without thorns, because in Christian symbolism the thorns of the rose indicate sin, and Mary was free of sin.

The rose has something very mystical about it. Praying the rosary is considered meditation.

The Sufis pray with a drop of rose fragrance dabbed on the area of the “third eye,” because it is said that the rose cleanses and strengthens the spirit. In ancient Greece a wreath of roses was already thought to strengthen the mind.

The Roman Emperor wore a wreath of roses for the same reason. Romans wore wreaths made from roses during decadent outdoor feasts, because they hoped the roses would minimize the effects of too much drinking.

The rose as the image of a clear mind was also known to the alchemists, who connected the rose to the idea of deliverance. In Dante’s Paradiso the small group of saved sinners is pictured in the form of a white rose above which angels circle like bees. That the way to salvation is possible only through love is perhaps the most important lesson of the rose, the flower originally dedicated to Aphrodite, goddess of love. But that the rose also symbolizes flesh and blood is seen in the fact that Dionysus also claimed the rose to be his.

Time and again we hear about a rose bush that never stops blooming; about rose branches in a vase that for 70 years produced white blossoms; and about how the food for the poor that, in the basket of saints, is transformed into roses.

For those interested in the magic of the rose, we might also mention the Pentagram of the Rose.

If you connect the center of each petal with the center of the petal that comes after the next, you will form a pentagram, the foot of the Druids, the old magic figure that Faust wanted to use to overcome Satan.

The Greeks considered the long-lived, five-leaved rose bush, with the imprint of a pentagram, to be the symbol of the cycle of the Cosmos, which, according to Aristotle, is determined by the five elements (fire, water, earth, air, and ether). Also, the Rosicrucians see the rose as a symbol of hidden wisdom, using it as a symbol in their cross.

The color of the rose is also important.

A wilted rose is a sign of a relationship gone bad. According to Jung, the rose is always the symbol for wholeness, representing, in the form of the mandala, a symbol for the order of the world.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Pillars

(see Archway, Buildings, Concrete, Stones)

While these are sometimes considered phallic due to their shape, in ancient Greece pillars were regularly carved in the shape of a woman whose visage was modeled after a priestess of the Moon Goddess. In this form, pillars can emphasize the need to balance gender-specific outlooks, or to accept the traits you exhibit from the opposite gender as a building block to your whole personality.

What do these pillars uphold? If, for example, they support a temple roof, this implies having strong foundations and evidence for your beliefs. However, cracking and decayed pillars reflect a belief system that you have outgrown, but not left behind.

Ancient Egyptian: A hieroglyph called the Pillars of Horus was placed on the walls of homes to keep negativity away from the residents. Such symbols inscribed on your dream’s buildings may represent feelings of oppression or danger from which you wish to protect yourself and your kin.

A person’s best attributes that are worthy of recognition or honor (e.g., being a “pillar of truth” or “pillar of the community”).... The Language of Dreams

Meat

To see raw meat in your dream refers to solid basics and highly nourishing elements. To see cooked meat in your dream may suggest that you will see others obtain the object for which you have been striving. To dream that you are eating meat signifies that you are getting to the heart of the matter. Consider also whether you have been chewing over a meaty or substantial piece of information in your waking life.

If beef figured in your dream, are you in a stew, or troubled by something? Alternatively, if you carved the meat, even though you may be a vegetarian, could you be yearning to savor the sins of the flesh?

And if you relished the taste of a dream curry, do you long to spice up your life?

Meat and potatoes in your dream suggest a preference for the basics or bare essentials of an issue. Meatballs indicate irrationality or the times when you lose your reason. A meat loaf represents the combining of basic ideas or elements. A meat packing house illustrates the quality of the fundamental concepts or basic ideas that you have digested. Recall the condition of the factory; was it clean, or were there rodents and bugs? Consider also the type of meat you eat.

If you are eating dream beef this may warn you against the ready acceptance of new (raw) ideas. Chicken points to a lack of faith or confidence in oneself.

If you are eating lamb, do you long for spiritual sustenance? To dream that you are eating ham signifies over-emotionalism, dramatics and theatrics.... The Element Encyclopedia

Educational Paraphernalia

The blackboard sets information out in black and white, so in dreams it can represent unambiguous insights or the need to make your mark on the world. Because chalk can be rubbed out it is a warning against having rigid opinions that do not allow the possibility of change. According to Freud, holding a piece of chalk suggests masturbation whilst breaking a piece of chalk suggests a fear of castration. A school desk is a symbol of your most private self.

If your initials are carved on the desk, this also expresses your desire to make your mark on the world. Freudians would argue that opening a desk and searching inside is a symbol of sexual intercourse.

Many of us associate ink with our schooldays and if ink is spilled over a sheet of paper in your dream, this may suggest feelings of guilt. The shade of ink will be significant: black ink will symbolize evil thoughts or deeds, whilst red will symbolize impulsive acts. Dreaming of notebooks or schoolbooks can suggest a great deal; are the notebooks neat, suggesting an ordered mind or are they messy, suggesting confusion? If there are doodles alongside the scribbles, this suggests a creative personality that thrives in chaos. If, in your dream, your schoolbag is filled with pens, papers, books and apples, this suggests the happiness gained from happy experience but if the schoolbag is heavy and cumbersome, you may be feeling weighed down by the past. Pay attention to the quality and condition of the school bag as it could reveal a lot about your current approach to life.

If the school bell rings suggesting that a lesson is over, this may indicate the end of a difficult phase in your life but if the bell comes at the end of a playtime, it could signify regret that a happy period in your life is coming to an end.... The Element Encyclopedia

Species Of Tree

Specific trees may be significant to you, so try and identify the feelings and associations a specific tree evokes if one appears in your dream. For example, does the magnolia that graced your childhood garden conjure up a happy childhood memory or is it the tree you carved your initials on with the name of your first sweetheart? If your dream tree reminded you of nothing in particular, it may be that you are unconsciously aware of its traditional, mythical or religious symbolism and this may have relevance to your waking situation. Specific trees carry with them ancient associations and although it is unlikely that these association have much relevance in modern urban life, they can and do still carry weight in your dreams.

If you believe a tree in your dream was significant but you have no idea why, the following guidelines might help you; if your species of tree is not listed here, it may be worthwhile researching its traditional meaning.... The Element Encyclopedia
