In dreams, Jesus Christ symbolizes love, a high spiritual messenger or someone who sacrifices everything for a goal, whilst Mother Teresa is the archetypal mother figure who characterizes selfless love, compassion and giving aid. Once Mother Teresa was asked how she could continue visiting the terminally ill, day after day after day, feeding them, wiping their brows, giving them comfort as they lay dying. She said, ‘It’s not hard, because in each one I see the face of Christ in one of His more distressing disguises.’ Abraham Lincoln paved the way to freeing the slaves from oppression, and so in dreams he represents integrity and things of which you should be proud.
Martin Luther King was an American clergyman, Nobel Prize winner, a prominent advocate of non-violent protest and one of the principal leaders of the American civil rights movement. His ‘I have a dream’ speech is known the world over and in dreamland the appearance of King himself may be urging you to commit yourself to a cause and strive to achieve your dreams. A similar figure is Mahatma Gandhi, an Indian nationalist leader who established his country’s independence from Britain through a non-violent revolution.
If Gandhi appears in dreams, he characterizes living spirituality or fighting for spiritual principles.... The Element Encyclopedia

If one sees himself calling people to God Almighty in a dream, it means that he will be saved from hell-fire. Doing good deeds in a dream such as charity, prayers, invoking God’s blessings, helping others, protecting the rights of others, commanding what is lawful and shunning what is forbidden incurs the divine pleasure and bounty, and brings profits to one’s business, pays his debts, dispels his fears and leads him to receive a leading position in his community. Thanking God Almighty for His favors in a dream means receiving an inheritance. Doing a good deed in a dream also signifies receiving encouragement or having encouraging ambitions.
To spend money on God’s path in a dream means receiving money in wakefulness.... Islamic Dream Interpretation
According to Jung, dreams are a compensation for what is going on in daily life. They can serve as a positive or negative compensation. In this way they attempt to balance the psyche. For example, if you experience unhappiness in daily life, you may have a positive, uplifting dream of happiness and contentment. There may also be an element of wish-fulfillment. For example, if you are in financial trouble in your waking life, you may have an exciting dream about winning the lottery.
As well as serving a compensatory or wish-fulfillment function, your dreaming mind may conjure up images of courage, bravery or tenderness in dreams to highlight the need for you to be equally courageous, brave or tender in your waking life. Dreams that feature kindness, love, goodness and purity also highlight qualities that you might want to consider nurturing within yourself.
And if you see yourself acting like a saint or a hero in your dreams, the message may be that if you follow the example set in your dream you may find a way to overcome obstacles that are holding you back so you can move forward in certain areas of your life.

Dreams of scissors can be related to decisiveness and cutting out unwanted emotional aspects of the dreamer’s life.
If the scissors are unused, this can express a desire to begin a new relationship or make an existing one stronger.
Dream scissors may also suggest that you are dividing your attention among too many people.
If you are cutting with scissors, you are in the process of making an important decision. Another interpretation for scissors is that they are a symbol of sexuality, either male or female, depending on whether they are open or closed. A knot in a dream symbolizes the various ties in your life and relationships with others.
If you carefully untie a knot in your dream, this suggests a readiness to deal with a problem, rather than ignoring it by impatiently cutting the knot in two. The knot also has sexual symbolism, representing a couple’s personal and sexual union.
Dream envelopes suggest messages to or from the dreamer.
If the envelope is open, this signifies daily problems that can be tackled but if the envelope is closed, it may be harder to solve the problems.
If the envelope is bulging, you may be feeling that your life is overburdened with worries and emotional expectations from those around you. A ladder in your dream may relate to work in your home, such as painting, but if you cannot make a practical connection, try and think of the purpose of the dream ladder. How is it being used? Like elevators and stairs, ladders in dreams relate to your progress or lack of it. See also HOME.... The Element Encyclopedia
