Gypsy Dream Dictionary | Raymond Buckland


(Clarity; Perception; Wisdom; Woman) In a dream, glass represents an early stage of a temporary anxiety, depression or stress. Such condition is less serious when glass is seen collected as broken chips in a container in a dream. Seeing through glass in a dream means uncovering something that is hidden. In a dream, all glassware, stained glass, engraved glass, or decorative glass of green, red or yellowish color represent a suspicious person, money earned from a suspicious source or suspicion about one’s wife, or even suspicion about one’s true children, or it could mean eavesdropping, affectation or hypocrisy. In a dream, any glass by-products represent people of knowledge, scholars, gnostics, sages or people of wisdom. Buying a glittering glass ornament, or a house made of mother of pearl in a dream means choosing the pleasures of this world over the everlasting joy of the hereafter, or it could mean disdaining to obey God’s commands, or it could mean becoming an apostate.

A drinking glass cup in a dream represents a woman. Receiving a glass of water in a dream means that one’s wife is pregnant.

An unknown kind of glass cup or a roughly cut drinking glass of water in a dream means that there is a fetus in the mother’s womb.

If the glass of water breaks and the water remains in the dream, it means that the mother may die after giving birth and the infant will survive. Ifthe water spills and the glass remains intact in the dream, it means that the fetus may die and the mother will survive.

The breaking of a glass in a dream also denotes the death of the one who is serving it.

If a sick person is given a glass of wine, or water, or a bitter apple drink, or a laxative in a dream such a drink represents his last cup.

Glass in dreams represents the hidden but powerful feelings and social barriers we use in everyday life. These include caution, inhibition, disinterest, pride and the fear of being hurt. Frosted or smoked glass suggests parts of yourself that you are keeping hidden from others. It can also indicate an obscure or unclear view of a situation. Occasionally it relates to death, the very real yet obscure experience we all face.

If you dream of breaking glass, what barrier or restraint are you breaking through? Could it mean that your emotions might be shattered? Breaking something made of glass might symbolize the breaking up of a relationship, the shattering of an illusion or simply that you or someone else are broken-hearted.

Glass may not always be very visible, so it may represent hidden dangers; if you dream of stepping on broken glass, it suggests that you are being careless about your direction in life or your present situation; if it is being done without heed to injury, walking on glass represents selfinflicted pain.

If you dream of glasses as in spectacles, this refers to your ability to see or understand something or someone clearly. The image may also refer to the mask you use to hide behind, as with sunglasses. Terms like‘short-sighted’ or ‘long- sighted’ help us understand the use of glasses in a dream.
