Seed Dream Meaning: From 17 Different Sources


(1) A seed may symbolize potential for personal growth. Sowing seed means making new growth possible.

(2) A seed may be a symbol of your true self, which is not to be confused with the ego. In fact there may be some internal dialogue in

your psyche between the true self (T) and the ego (‘me’), in which, despite ‘me’s’ stubborn independence or rebelliousness, T offers love and comfort and healing. (In Hindu mythology the seed is a symbol of Atman, the ultimate T of every act. In Judaism, Christianity and Islam - God is a Thou’. In mystical traditions, however, God is the one and only T, and full consciousness of the T - the opposite of egoistic selfcentredness - is said to bring freedom from fears and true independence.)

Nuts And Seeds

Although less juicy then fruits, nuts are equally nutritious and satisfying, sharing fruit’s general symbolism of reward, fertility and well-being. And because their edible parts are encased in hard shells, they also denote wisdom and insight that may be hidden or yet to be discovered. To dream that you are gathering nuts could suggest success in business and in love. You may also be trying to get to the core of a matter or situation. To dream that you are eating nuts signifies prosperity and attainment of your desires, but if you dreamed of exerting enormous force to crack open a nut, your unconscious may have been referring to someone in your waking life who is a tough nut, presenting a hard face to the world whilst possessing a tender interior. Alternatively, it may signify some project in your life that is proving to be a tough nut to crack. Bear in mind also that your unconscious may have been making a reference to testicles or ’nuts’, or was reflecting the current craziness of your waking life. Consider also the association with health, as in a ’health nut’, or feeling passionate or nuts about something.

Your dreaming mind may also home in on a particular nut and if it does there may be a sexual connotation. Almonds, for example, resemble female genitalia and because the almond is a symbol of the Virgin Mary, they may also denote virginity or innocence. Bear in mind, too, the phrase ’almond eyed’, which indicates a perceptive individual. Although most nuts symbolize masculine sexuality, the walnut does so more than others, suggesting fertility in particular. To see or eat filbert nuts in your dream signifies peace, harmony and profitable business ventures. Nutmeg indicates a basic natural ability or talent you may be unaware that you have. A nutcracker will exemplify a need for solutions or resolution, whilst a nutshell relates to the shells you use in waking life to protect yourself. A nutshell may also indicate a need to consolidate your beliefs into a basic, simple formula. To see a nut tree in your dream signifies happiness and rewarding experiences in waking life.

Dreams of seeds or kernels pertain to your inner talents and abilities. Other interpretations include: the beginning of something or the completion of a phase or cycle, mission accomplished, fertility and going to seed.
