To see chickens in your dream can symbolize cowardice and stupidity, or chatter and gossip. Listen closely to what people may be saying about you or what you are saying about others. Alternatively, chickens can also show that there is potential for growth but this may only come about with the support of others. A group of chickens can also suggest that something you have done in waking life is about to rebound on you: as in chickens come home to roost.
The cock suggests male sexual characteristics and so the need to be more assertive. It is also the symbol of the new day and of keeping watch. Less positively, it might suggest that you are being overbearing and trying to rule the roost. The hen suggests being totally immersed in the concerns of motherhood.
If a hen crows in your dream, this is taken to represent maternal domination. A group of hens may symbolize gossip and calamity. It may also suggest being ‘hen-pecked’ or that you feel being picked on, like chicken feed. Chicks represent babies or very young children in your life, or your feelings about your own childhood. They can also point to vulnerability. Are you counting your chickens before they have hatched?... The Element Encyclopedia
Vision: Dreaming about chickens means good times are just around the corner. Seeing several chickens: don’t waste so much time with pleasantries and idle talk. Plucking a chicken: you are not properly compensated for your work. Eating a chicken: your efforts on the job are going to be rewarded. Trying to catch and/or chasing one or more chickens—particularly in men’s dreams: a warning about constantly chasing short-term love affairs—none of which provides satisfaction. You are watching a hen laying eggs: expect to receive money soon; sometimes it also means a new member is added to the family. Watching a hen sitting on eggs: your wishes will come true. Seeing one or more chicks means you are going to be blessed with children, many grandchildren, or a big family in general. Killing a chicken: your carelessness will bring you harm. See Rooster....

This flightless bird may be pointing to personal characteristics and needs that you may not necessarily want to look at. Consider the activities in the dream, as well as the mood, and then attempt to make a good interpretation. Chickens can represent cowardliness, gossip, excessive talking, and powerlessness. They are not known for their intelligence or beauty, and their presence in your dream could be an invitation to get more serious and better focused.

Pine If you dream of pine trees, are you pining for someone or something in waking life? A pine cone, depending on the context of your dream, may also symbolize masculine virility or feminine fecundity.... The Element Encyclopedia

All green garments in a dream represent benefits. Green in a dream is also interpreted to mean submission to God’s will.

Green means go. Green is the color of the heart center, which can be confusing due to the representation of the heart as red, made especially prominent in Western culture with Valentine’s Day. However, green is the central color of the spectrum, and the heart is considered the center of both our physical and emotional bodies. This connects the color green to love, healing, and all matters of the heart. It may be easier to understand the meaning of this color if you consider the earth and Mother Nature’s love affair with the color green. Keeping with traffic-signal analogies, if you go when the light is green, that is like following your heart’s desire to move forward. When the heart is soured by hurt, green can turn into the menace of envy.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
Green is the color of nature. It is also the color of other forms of growth and flourishing development.
If green appears in your dream, are you experiencing new growth? On the positive side, green is linked to feelings of calm and hope, but on the negative side it is associated with jealousy. Green is the color displayed by growing and healthy vegetation and foliage, and it quite clearly indicates natural growth or the mental relaxation gained from being close to nature. So if you were surrounded by lush green vegetation in your dream, could your unconscious have been urging you to pay more attention to the environment around you, or to become more environmentally friendly?
Consider, too, the other associations that are often made with this color; could your unconscious be telling you that your approach is naïve, immature or green? Could you do with an injection of freshness and hope in your life? Or have you become a victim of the green-eyed monster: jealousy?
If darker shades of green appear in relation to a certain person, is it because you are jealous or envious of them or something of theirs? Dark green also tends to indicate cheating, deceit and selfishness. Muddier shades of dark green sometimes point to envy and greed, as well as a stubborn or self- opinionated attitude. Alternatively, have you been given the green light to go ahead with some business or family venture? A green field could indicate inner feelings of calm. Green fruits may suggest that a current project is not quite ripe and that patience is needed until the time is right to begin. Green vegetables could also be associated with the idea of personal health or growth. Green eyes have traditionally been linked to feelings of jealousy. Were the eyes your own or someone else’s? A green path may be linked to a physical or emotional journey.
Lighter shades of green tending towards blue represent healing. This color is also representative of money. Keywords: positive change, growth, healing, vitality, serenity, money, wealth and jealousy.... The Element Encyclopedia

As the nurturing center of a house, the kitchen represents the heart and hearth of the self.
It is where the family is fed and comes together in community.
It is the room where people tend to congregate during parties.
It is the symbolic realm of mother and the feminine principle as it is expressed by the family structure. Food is stored and prepared in the kitchen, so the symbolic food for your soul is located in the kitchen of your dreams. Consider how your dream may be informing you of how you are responding to your own spiritual cooking.
If your life experience of family, mother, and kitchen was different from the ideal in your dream, your personal focus must include your individual paradigm. For example, much of a family’s abusive interactions can occur in the kitchen, so such associations should be considered when interpreting a kitchen dream.
The activity in the dream will outline your current internal view around issues of nurturing, self-care, and healing. Any people who appear are key components in the process of exploration.
If they are known to you, use the character-aspect technique to integrate their qualities into your interpretation.

To see a kitchen in your dream signifies your need for emotional nourishment. The kitchen is the emotional heart of the home and when you are trying to sort through your feelings you may dream of it. Kitchens are also places of experimentation and magic where you can create new dishes out of existing ingredients. Did the kitchen encourage you to linger by offering rich food for thought or was it a barren room that had no temptations or stimuli on offer? Pay attention to the condition and layout of your dream kitchen.
If it is cramped and cluttered, you may have taken on too many emotional problems that belong to others.
If the kitchen is bare, your life may be lacking in emotional intimacy.
Kitchen imagery often reflects the need to work through your current problems by listening to your heart and recognizing what really matters to you in your waking life. Assume that all the people and elements present in your kitchen dreams are clues to help you develop your full potential.

Male and female sexuality, as well as family life in general, are symbolized by the utensils and vessels used in cooking. The cooking fire or oven is traditionally the focus of the household and can symbolize the deepest center of your being; something burning in the kitchen should therefore alert you to problems in your family life.
If you are preparing a meal in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a quest for love and affection.
If you are frying food in your dream, there is the constant risk of getting burned; the smoke billowing around your kitchen may be warning you that a problem could get worse if you avoid it or don’t deal with it. Cinders or a grate in your dream kitchen can represent ruined hopes as well as the potential of projects yet to be born.
If you dream of a kettle, even though its spout it is a symbol of male sexuality, it suggests that someone can get hurt if passions are not handled carefully. On the other hand, it could also indicate your present mood: steamed up and about to explode. At the other extreme, the image of a broken kettle may mirror feelings of emptiness, as if all zest for life has gone.
If you are cooking with pots and pans, the association is with male or female sexuality, depending on whether the pot or the handle is featured.
When a cup is seen to represent female sexuality, drinking out of it is erotic wish-fulfillment.
If it is hurled across a room by a man, it may express fear of, or anger towards, female sexuality; if by a woman, the dream suggests that the dreamer is using sex as a weapon. For Jungians, the cup is a homely symbol of the abundance of life’s opportunities; it is also a symbol of self-realization in that it is an echo of the Holy Grail. A full or overflowing cup often symbolizes excitement and new opportunities, but an empty or smashed cup indicates the opposite.
Cutlery in dreams may suggest a desire for domestic security or the taming of aggression. Spoons may have a similar symbolism to cups, but they can also represent a desire to be spoonfed. A teaspoon may be telling you to take things in one step at a time. A silver spoon may refer to someone you envy. A colander or sieve may be seen as standing for the process of developing a new outlook on life and sifting out unhelpful attitudes and ideas. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia

Recurrent dream themes often start at a young age, but can begin at any time, and persist for the rest of one’s life.
The theme of missing an exam, to take one example, commonly begins during college years, when the stress of performing well may be more intense than ever before. However, this theme may then carry forward as a recurring dream for many years, even as one moves on to a career.
The “missing the exam” dream may reappear the night before an important job interview or an evaluation at work.
The circumstances may change, but the same feelings of stress, and the desire to perform well, can trigger the relevant recurrent dream.
Theorists suggest that these themes may be considered “scripts” (Spoormaker, 2008) or perhaps “complexes” (Freud 1950); as soon as your dream touches any aspect of the theme, the full script unfolds in completion. Dream theorists generally agree that recurring dreams are connected to unresolved problems in the life of the dreamer. In a previous post I discussed the idea that dreams often portray a Central Image, a powerful dream image that contextualizes a certain emotion or conflict for the dreamer.
The Tidal Wave dream is an example of a Central Image that represents overwhelming emotions such as helplessness and fear.
The Tidal Wave dream is a common dream to experience following trauma or abuse, and often becomes a recurrent theme that reflects a person’s struggling with integrating and accepting the trauma. Resolution of this theme over time is a good sign that the trauma has been confronted and adaptively integrated in the psyche. Empirical research has also supported findings that resolution of a recurrent dream is associated with improved well-being (Zadra, 1996). This is one way that keeping track of your dreams can be extremely informative and helpful in a therapeutic, or even self-help, process.
Many people have the same or a similar dream many times, over either a short period of time or their lifetime. Recurring dreams usually mean there is something in your life you’ve not acknowledged that is causing stress of some sort.
The dream repeats because you have not corrected the problem. Another theory is that people who experience recurring dreams have some sort of trauma in their past they are trying to deal with. In this case, the dreams tend to lessen with time.
Nightmares are dreams that are so distressing they usually wake us up, at least partially. Nightmares can occur at any age but are seen in children with the most frequency. Nightmares usually cause strong feelings of fear, sadness or anxiety. Their causes are varied. Some medications cause nightmares (or cause them if you discontinue the medication abruptly). Traumatic events also cause nightmares.
Treatment for recurring nightmares usually starts with interpreting what is going on in the dream and comparing that with what is happening in the person’s life. Then, the person undergoes counseling to address the problems that are presumably causing the nightmare. Some sleep centers offer nightmare therapy and counseling. Another method of treating nightmares is through lucid dreaming. Through lucid dreaming, the dreamer can confront his or her attacker and, in some cases, end the nightmares....
