Crab 

At first glance a crab seems to be a very negative dream symbol. It could represent a “crabby” or unpleasant personality.

The claws could be symbolic of a clinging and hurtful person, or a side of your own personality. There may be too much dependence, clinging and forcefulness in your life.

The crab may also symbolize your inability to effectively move forward and address your own difficulties.

(Remember the crab often moves sideways or backwards.) Some folklore interpretations say that the crab is an omen of poor health. However, there is a more positive interpretation for the crab in your dream. In some areas of metaphysics, the crab is a representative of the sea and the sky. It represents physical nourishment which can be obtained from the sea and also intellectual nourishment. As with all water dwelling animals, the crab could also represent something in the unconscious and the emotions. See also: Animals, Cancer ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

High

Example:41 must have climbed up this fire escape OK, but the building was incredibly high up and when I reached the platform I looked down and saw everything miles below. At this stage I was gripped with panic and I lay on the floor, clinging to the metal grid it was made of, and couldn’t move. I was so panic stricken it immobilised me completely and I couldn’t move up or even get back down (Helen B). Being high up, as in the example, can depict having a very wide view of one’s situation in life; feeling isolated, alone, or away from the known and secure—as one might in starting a new job, losing one’s job, or moving to a new town; apprehension, anxiety. Looking at something high: above one’s head, feeling impressed or awed; challenge. Also one’s aspirations and widest view of life, therefore the spiritual. See descend; hill; mountain; positions. Idioms: High and mighty; high as a kite; high flown; high flyer; high minded; high places. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Ivy

Dreaming of ivy harks back to the old idea of celebration and fun. It can also symbolise the clinging dependence which can develop within relationships.

Because ivy has the symbolism of constant affection, we can recognise that, psychologically; we are in need of love and affection.

Spiritually, ivy symbolises immortality and eternal life.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Dinosaur

Dinosaurs take you into prehistoric experiences and reflect the imprint of your history on the psyche.

The dinosaurs’ power lingers even after they have become extinct. In other words, a dinosaur may come to represent an old idea, belief, or pattern that still hugely influences you. Even though it may be outmoded or archaic, you may still be clinging to that which thwarts your evolution and growth.... Ariadne's Book of Dream

Squid

Sometimes a monster emerging out of the depths of the subconscious, Squid may appear as a frightening reminder of something that could be clinging to you. But in actuality it may appear to ask you to see what monstrous beliefs, patterns, or feelings lie twenty thousand leagues below that may be tormenting you.

A creature that holds his own ink like a fountain pen, Squid may come to deliver the message to write a book.... Ariadne's Book of Dream

Funeral

If you dream of your own funeral, you are giving up a part of yourself of an old way of acting. This dream often means that you are trying to ignore a situation that needs to be confronted and dealt with directly.

To dream that you are at somebody else’s funeral means you are burying an old relationship and closing the lid on the past. You may be letting go of old feelings you’ve been clinging onto.

If you dream you are attending a funeral for a parent who is still living in real life, you need to separate yourself from your parents’ restrictions.

The symbolic death may give you the courage you need to take the next step toward your independence.... My Dream Interpretation

Guru

(see also Wise Old Man / Woman)

A guru may represent the wisdom within you. Pay heed to what he or she says. (Spiritual traditions in which gurus figure invariably speak of an inner guru.) So far as personal growth or healing is concerned, the unconscious will often take the lead. The ego often obstructs this creative process by clinging to its old way or refusing to acknowledge that the unconscious might know best.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Anchor

Anchors generally convey positive connotations of security, stability, and a harbor against storms. Large bodies of water frequently symbolize the unconscious (or, sometimes, the emotions), making boats vehicles for negotiating the unconscious. Anchors may thus indicate a stable relationship with the unconscious or shelter against the “storms” of the emotions. Loss of an anchor indicates feeling adrift. Less positively, anchors may symbolize a resistance to change or a clinging to a sense of security.

As with all dream symbols, the tone and setting of the dream indicate which interpretation is appropriate.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia

Trunk

The trunk of a tree may represent one’s inner sense of well-being and personality.

A thick bark over a large, hefty trunk denotes a strong, rugged, and durable person.

A thin, narrow, bark-free tree trunk suggests a highly sensitive but wiry individual.

If the trunk is the long nose of an elephant, the dreamer may have a strong “nose for the news” and a very good memory. Alternatively an elephant’s trunk may have a phallic and sexual meaning. Finally, a trunk in the sense of an oldfashioned storage case may reveal the old memories and secrets to which the dreamer is clinging.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia

Parts Of Animals

These have the same interpretation as parts of the human body (see BODY).

If a four-legged animal has a leg or legs missing, it suggests a personality that is not fully rounded.

If you dream of a tail, this could signify a need for balance and adjustment in tough circumstances. It can also indicate sexual arousal or the penis.

If claws figure prominently in the dream, this could suggest spitefulness; desire to hurt; hidden aggression; clinging, or ‘getting one’s claws in someone’.... The Element Encyclopedia

Danger

Dreams about earthquakes, landslides and volcanoes all point to inner turmoil or emotional conflict that is shaking the foundation of the dreamer’s world. The dream may often come close to being a nightmare, but such dreams are warning you about something that is going on in your waking life to which you need to pay attention. A dream about a natural disaster is unlikely to be prophetic; it is more likely to be referring to something dangerous in your waking life. For example, an avalanche dream may refer to oppressive forces in waking life threatening to overwhelm you—an avalanche of responsibility, for example, that accompanies the birth of a new child.

If you are swept away in the dream, you are being urged to find something, or someone, to hold onto in waking life to regain stability.

If you dreamed that the earth was cracking open beneath you, this threat may be echoed in changes at work or insecurity within a relationship.

An explosion may reflect sudden changes in waking life or the release of emotion. What damage has the explosion inflicted in the dream? If anything was broken, interpret its symbolism; if someone was clinging on to you in the dream, who are they? If you dreamed you were in danger of thunder or lighting, again this may refer to emotional turmoil in waking life; but a dream about being struck by lighting could refer to sudden insight.

If you dream that you are falling into a dark hole, is there some situation in waking life out of which you feel you cannot climb?

Dreams featuring alarms may be caused by car or house alarms that go off in the night; if there is no external stimulus of this sort, and your dream features a house alarm, does this allude to your family? Does someone need protection at this time? Was the alarm effective in the dream? If the alarm failed to go off, this is an extremely significant symbol.

If your dream features a car alarm, this may allude to some kind of rash behavior and, as men often equate cars with sexuality, you may want to consider it in this context.

Dreams can also often warn of dangers of which we may be unaware in waking life. For example if you dream of overspending, this may suggest you are expending too much emotion on a particular person.

If you dream of escaping from a prison to a happy landscape, this may be a warning that you need to relax more. There are other practical warning dreams. For example, you may dream that your car brakes fail and in waking life find that this is indeed the case. There is usually a simple explanation as your unconscious mind may have registered the fault, but this kind of dream should not be ignored (see ACCIDENTS, ACTION AND ADVENTURES). Similarly dreams of bodily aches and pains and other signs of poor health are also worth taking note of. See also SICKNESS AND HEALTH.... The Element Encyclopedia

Shirt And Tie

If a shirt features in your dream, it may have been an unconscious reminder to iron one when you awake. Otherwise puns may help with the interpretation. Are you overdependent on someone in waking life—clinging on to someone’s shirttails—or is someone overdependent on you.

If you rolled your sleeves up in your dream, is a forthcoming task looming large in waking life, or are you in danger of going bankrupt and ‘losing the shirt off your back’? A dream that features a shirt may be associated with gambling—putting one’s shirt—on a horse.

If you were choked by a tight collar, scarf or tie in your dream, your unconscious may have been drawing attention to feelings of restriction, maybe in relation to your work, as collars and neckties tend to be worn by professionals. A tie is sometimes a sexual symbol, but it also represents something that can choke feelings.

If the tie is colorful, this might represent a creative new approach. To dream of stitching a shirt or item of clothing suggests that repairs are needed in some areas of your life.

If you find yourself sewing a patch on your shirt, was your unconscious speaking in puns? Is there something in your life that needs patching up? Or have you been trying to hide something about yourself from others, such as the big heart you used to wear on your sleeve?... The Element Encyclopedia

Holiday

If you are traveling towards a holiday destination in your dream, this may suggest disillusionment with your current daily routine.

If you are making a hectic dash to the airport or enjoying first-class perks on your journey, this can point to whether or not you feel anxious or calm about your current circumstances.

If you have packed too many bags for your dream holiday, this may suggest clinging onto worries and issues that burden you. Baggage in dreams tends to symbolize material or psychological concerns, so if you have no baggage at all in your dream, your unconscious may be urging you to leave your emotional baggage behind so you can move forward feeling lighter and less encumbered.

If you dream of losing your baggage, is that good or bad for you? Does it offer you an opportunity to start afresh? If your dream baggage is very elegant and all items match, does it suggest a need to make a good impression on others or an overdeveloped concern with outward appearances?

If a ticket for going on holiday features in your dream, this expresses opportunity. The dream image conjures up wishes associated with travel or taking a risk in some aspect of your life.

If you lose your ticket in your dream, this suggests anxiety about losing the chance of new opportunities in your emotional and professional life in the real world. Taking your camera on your dream holiday may indicate the need to preserve, hold onto or remember an important event or person in your life. Forgetting your camera means that you are forgetting what is important in your life.... The Element Encyclopedia
