Dream Dictionary The Biblical Model | Vincent Wienand


Figurative of help

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton


A hand that is open and pointing towards the sky is giving the “Fear not!” gesture of ancient times. Therefore, if you see this symbol, whether the hand is of a person or is totally disembodied, something that you’re afraid of is actually nothing to fear.

Beautiful, well-kept hands indicate satisfaction in life, while dirty hands indicate some kind of “mess” in your life that needs to be “cleaned up.”

Hands that are working diligently indicate success and good fortune through the dreamer’s own efforts.

Hands that caress the dreamer or someone else in the dream, including a pet, imply happiness in love, while hands that are waving in farewell indicate temporary separations.

Tied hands imply obstacles in attaining one’s goals, while shaking hands imply either a new friend or a reunion with an old one.

Injured or bandaged hands indicates delays in attaining one’s goals; look to other symbols in the dream to discern how these delays can be subverted, or, if they’re inevitable, how best the time during the delays can be spent.

To dream of your hands, represents your relationship to those around you and how you connect with the world. Hands serve as a form of communication. Perhaps you need to lend out a helping hand to someone. In particular, the left hand symbolizes your graciousness and feminine, receptive qualities. And the right hand symbolizes masculine, active attributes. It may also be a pun for some decision or something being “right”. Here are some other “hand” dream meanings: A dream about holding hands with someone means that you are needing and willing to develop close friendships. It may also mean you are feeling sexy, or want some physical affection. Your dream may also reflect anxieties about losing touch or drifting apart from that person.

To dream that your hands are injured represents an attack on your ego. Giant hands in a dream, especially if they are your own, mean someone in your life is too demanding of you. However, this dream can also mean success in achieving your goals. Small hands in a dream, whether yours or somebody else’s, suggest that you are feeling insecure, or under attack.

To dream that your hands are hairy or rough, implies your lack of gentleness in dealing with others.

To see blood on your hands, signifies that you are feeling guilty.

To dream of washing your hands represents a worrisome issue that you need to work through. Alternatively, it suggests that you are no longer taking responsibility in some matter.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller


A frequent dream symbol, hands represent creativity, our hold on people, the extension of our ability to interact with others. We express ourselves with our hands, and appropriate reading of body language is a valuable source of information. Likewise, in the dream state the hands may reveal information about emotions, intentions, and overt behaviors.

For example, if in you dream you see clenched fists you may have much repressed anger. Sometimes extended hands suggest a need to develop close friendships.

If the hands in your dreams are stroking you, may be feeling sexy

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar


Hands reflect the way we use resources. The right hand symbolizes the rational, logical, and analytical side, while the left represents the irrational, impulsive, and emotional (for left-handed people, the meaning is reversed). When you dream that your hands are large and strong, it is a sign of security, success, and progress. If, however, you see small and weak hands, it expresses helplessness, insecurity, resentment, and dissatisfaction. White, smooth, and clean hands suggest a comfortable and easy life.

If they are rough and dirty, they embody effort, suffering, and work. Hairy hands reveal primitivism and an uncontrollable sex drive. We also use our hands to express ourselves. At heart, they are extensions of our personality.

If you discover the meaning of every gesture you make in the dream, you will know the nature of the feelings that you must understand. For example: a clenched fist indicates aggressiveness, selfishness, or passion; holding hands expresses affection; a hand held high represents forgiveness. (See FINGERS and GLOVES)

If you dream of the palm, you may be worried about the future. According to palmistry, its shapes and lines contain data about our destiny. The dream, therefore, may be giving you clues about your future potential. Fortunately, you have the option to act voluntarily. What you do now will improve what is to come.

Handicap To dream of an impediment indicates that the path you’ve chosen to complete a project is the wrong one.

If you see yourself in a wheelchair, this could mean that you are experiencing a period of immobility, so you must work to attain your goals.

If you dream you cannot move from where you are because of some incomprehensible handicap, it means that your life is not working and not progressing as it should.

It is best to seek balance.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

A person, humanness, or humanity in general.

The ability to get things done, being “handy,” or “handling things.” The idea of holding on or letting go (physically, emotionally, or mentally).

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards


Hands can signify power and creativity. You use them to express yourself and as extensions of your personality. Consider the nature of the gesture of your hands in your dreams because it signifies what sentiments your dream is trying to express.

If the hands are dirty, perhaps you are behaving in an inappropriate manner and you need to think about cleaning up your act. A fist can suggest anger or passion, folded hands can suggest acceptance, joined hands affection, and upheld hands justice or a blessing. Clasped hands indicate friendship, a hand on the breast submission, and, if the hands are placed together, this suggests vulnerability.

If hands are covering the eyes, this represents shame or disgust, whilst hands bound or tied up suggest feelings of restriction.

If you place your hand on someone else in a dream, this can suggest a pledge of service and wringing your hands suggests grief.

If hands are raised to the head, this can indicate the need for greater care and thought. A handshake suggests contacting an aspect of yourself or the growth of a new friendship.

Generally, left hands symbolize feminine, receptive qualities, whilst right hands symbolize so-called masculine, active attributes. Sometimes in dreams the left hand can suggest cheating.

If you hold a different object in each hand in your dream, this indicates some kind of conflict between your beliefs and your actions in waking life. To dream that your hands are injured denotes an attack on your ego. Large hands signify enormous powers of self-expression. To dream that your hands are hairy denotes that you will play a part in falsely incriminating someone. To see blood on your hands signifies that you are experiencing some sort of guilt. To dream that you are washing your hands represents a worrisome issue that you need to work through.

If you dream about the palm of your hand you may be thinking about your future (see PALMISTRY). Thankfully you have free-will, so positive actions taken now can determine your future.

Tied: A situation over which you have no direct influence or control (see Knots, Ties / Tying).

Clenched hands reveal a lot of tension and anxiety- present in the dreamer.

Upturned hands are a sign that some comprehension is lacking. Alternatively, you are constantly asking for help, like a beggar, but not necessarily helping yourself.

Missing: To dream of not having any hands means that you probably feel helpless or ineffective in your current situation. You need to find an alternative tool or approach that’s productive.

The palm of the hand represents life’s road map—the directions one has taken or is soon to take (note that the divinatory art of palmistry is based on the secrets that lie literally in the palm of your hand).

Handbag / Briefcase / Purse / Wallet

If you lose any of these in your dream, your unconscious may simply be urging you to be more careful with your finances in waking life. Handbags for women and briefcases for men are highly personal items, carrying everyday and emergency objects, not to mention address books and keys, and if you lose either in a dream it might suggest that you are feeling anxious about your identity in waking life. On the other hand, if you were looking through someone else’s bag, you may be curious to know more about them in waking life. As symbols of femininity, handbags and purses in dreams may also refer to female sexuality.... handbag / briefcase / purse / wallet dream meaning

Money / Handbag / Jewelry / Purse / Wallet

Money, cash or coins in dreams are often thought to be a sign of emotional transactions.

If you give money away, this suggests a generosity of spirit or it might reflect emotional ties that are expected of you at present. Receiving money can suggest the acceptance of emotional support or the emotional needs of the dreamer. Borrowing money can be a warning to hold back as far as financial plans are concerned and to explore all aspects of the deal before going ahead. Making a payment, signing a check or using a credit card are thought to be positive signs that things are going to plan. The notion of saving and investing in dreams may refer to the need to prepare yourself emotionally for situations and relationships that need your attention

A wallet, purse or pocketbook containing personal items may relate to your private world, the kind of person you are and your interests.

If you dream of an expensive designer purse or bag, you may feel a need to have a more glamorous image. A worn purse may symbolize feelings of being worn out and shabby. Do you need to brighten up your identity so that you look and feel brighter? Your dream wallet may symbolize your private thoughts and desires, hidden from public view. Is your wallet full or empty? Are you worried that someone has got too close to you or on the contrary are you seeking greater intimacy? A bag in your dream may symbolically carry your hopes for the future. A heavy bag suggests more projects than you can handle, whilst an empty bag—far from meaning that you have no hope—suggests that you wish to search for new ideas. Frequently associated with fruit, a basket may evoke images of fertility and sexuality. Depending on what is in the basket, it can suggest youthful energy or ripe maturity.

Finally, items of jewelry are symbols of wishes and wish-fulfillment.

If you are given a gift of jewelry in your dream, you may be experiencing a sense of recognition in waking life. Viewing a rare jewel from a distance may be a sign that you have failed to understand the importance or meaning of an event or relationship. Losing a jewel may reflect fears of personal or financial loss in waking life. See also CRYSTALS, GEMSTONES AND ROCKS; MONEY AND SHOPPING.... money / handbag / jewelry / purse / wallet dream meaning

Handshake / Greeting

A handshake is a familiar form of greeting in many parts of the world.

If your dream handshake was strong, this suggests that you are feeling positive about your life at present.

If the handshake was weak, this suggests you may be in need of an energy boost.

If someone offers you their hand then withdraws it quickly, you may be feeling distrustful of that person.

If the greeting was a hug, try to recall how you felt about that greeting. Did you feel warm and comfortable, or uneasy and unnatural? If you felt secure, then this suggests you are feeling appreciated in everyday life; if you felt uneasy, this suggests you are feeling isolated and unsupported.... handshake / greeting dream meaning
