When remembering the colors in your dreams, it is important to recall if the colors were bright and vivid, or muted and faded, as the strength of the colors may be linked directly to your emotions and emotional needs at the time of the dream. Rich, clear colors may signify inner strength or a sense of well-being, whereas weak colors may represent feelings of being jaded or washed out in some way.
There is a clear difference between light and dark in the dream, especially if it features an indoor location. Darkness can mean that your situation is unclear or confused; it could also suggest being in unknown or difficult territory, or it may represent a secret part of yourself or a part that you do not know.
Another interpretation suggests depression or the darker aspects of life. Light is the opposite. Light represents clearness, insight and enlightenment, and can signify the light at the end of the tunnel or seeing the light. It also has much to do with confidence. To feel lighter suggests feeling good about yourself.
If the light is very bright, it can suggest the development of intuition or insight.
If your dream took place in the bright daytime sunshine or in the shadow of a dark night, your memory of the dream will be tinged with optimism, associated with the light and brightness, or pessimism, associated with the darkness.
If a gray and faded shade of green appeared in your dream, this may be referring to the dullness of your waking life. On the other hand, if the green was bright and vivid, it may be suggesting a period of new growth. Background colors therefore play an important part in creating the ambience or feel of the dream and in influencing your reaction to it. For example, if you have a favorite or least-favorite color, its appearance in your dream may also reinforce your positive and negative reaction to it.
In some instances, you may find yourself trying to interpret a dream but the details have faded from your memory; that is apart from the glittering dark blue suit your friend was wearing. Why would your unconscious have dressed your friend in this way? The answer may lie in the archetypal symbolic meaning of blue, or your personal association with it. Indeed, any color that was highlighted in your dream may have been sending you a message from your unconscious; your task is to try to make a link between what that color means to you, the context in which it appeared, your real-life circumstances and the symbolic connotations associated with that particular color....

Vision: Forming an intimate relationship: meeting a new friend.
A wrong phone connection: you are being played for a fool, or the person you tried to call wants nothing to do with you. See Telephone.

(Social acquaintance) To have important connections in a dream means compelling one’s enemy to retreat or to accept one’s conditions.

Many dream analysts believe that when a specific stone, jewel, mineral, metal or rock is highlighted in your dream, it represents the self or the core, unique part of yourself that is charged with personal significance.
According to Freud, rocks and stones are obvious phallic symbols on account of their hardness. The appearance of rocks, stones and metals in dreams for Jungians, however, has a different interpretation inspired by Jung’s interest in alchemy. Alchemy is the ancient art of transmuting base metals into gold but it is not just about this transformation. It can also be viewed as a system of self- initiation. Jung was amazed to find that the images and operations he encountered in old alchemy texts related strongly to his theories of psychoanalysis and the unconscious. He saw in alchemy a metaphor for the process of individuation or personal transformation, and the morphing and mutating imagery of that process which emerges from the stream of consciousness. For Jungians, therefore, the appearance of rocks, stones, metals and jewels in dreams are potent and powerful symbols of a person’s basic nature, heart and soul, and of their potential for personal transformation.

Priests, rabbis, popes, cardinals, priestesses, lamas, gurus, yogis, Jedi knights, monks, mullahs, nuns and curates are all symbols of spiritual authority in dreams and in some cases they represent your own spiritual wisdom. The key to interpreting their appearance in a dream is the message or feeling they convey to you.
If you were uneasy because the message was an unwelcome reminder of a duty you have neglected, your dreaming mind may be urging you to take positive action that will transform your spiritual well-being. Such figures may also stand for parental disapproval or advice; perhaps you are yearning for some moral certainties and direction in your waking life. According to ancient dream-lore, any dream concerning a priest is a fortunate one. In particular, it means the end of a quarrel.... The Element Encyclopedia
(Admonition; Fellowship; Gathering; Meeting; Religious meeting) If one who does not qualify to be a spiritual leader or a scholar sees himself holding a religious gathering and admonishing people to do good and to forbid evil in a dream, it means distress and an illness which he is praying hard for it to be lifted by God’s leave. However, ifhe does speak wisdom during such a spiritual gathering in his dream, it means praying hard to have one’s distress and illness lifted by God’s leave. Consequently, and God willing, he will recover from his illness and be able to dispel his adversities. His condition will change from tightness to abundance. He will repay his debts and overcome his oppressors.
If one sees a spiritual gathering where God’s Name is glorified, the holy Qur’an is read and wisdom is spoken in his dream, it means that such a place will be established as a spiritual center or as a mosque. Such a place will also become a center where spiritual leaders and governors will gather and speak.
If love songs of light nature are played during such a gathering in a dream, it means that falsehood will overtake such a place. Ifone sees himselfsitting in the center stage, in the middle oflearned people and religious scholars in a dream, it means that he will receive a greater knowledge and honor in his life.
A gathering that involves a court case, or a marriage in a dream represents an unknown adversity that will safely pass. Admonishing people in a public gathering in a dream means that one’s command will be obeyed. Sitting in the center stage in a spiritual gathering in a dream represents one’s station or rank, or it could represent one’s wife, child, property, or personal secretary. Anything that happens to such a gathering in the dream may reflect on any of them.

Tibetan Buddhists call these‘dreams of clarity’ because such dreams go beyond everyday situations and concerns into a space of‘the divine’. You may wake up from such a dream with a feeling of awe and unreality, knowing that something special and mystical has transpired.
The more you focus on the spiritual aspects of your waking life, the more likely it is that you will have a mystical, visionary or spiritual dream. The Tibetan dream yoga tradition, in common with other Eastern practices, encourages daily meditation and other self- awareness rituals to help clear the mind so that you may be open to receiving spiritual dreams during sleep.
Spiritual dreams are often categorized in several ways: Numinous dreams are dreams in which you can achieve practically anything, since you possess‘numen’, or divine power. Transpersonal dreams are those in which you go beyond personal concerns into a concern for the needs of all humanity. Transcendent and spiritual dreams are those in which you make contact with higher or divine knowledge; in such dreams, you might interact with angels, spirits, gurus or other divine messengers and learn profound lessons about ultimate human values, such as compassion, courage and selfdiscipline.
Scrooge’s dream in A Christmas Carol is a classic example of a spiritual dream. As was the case with Scrooge, a spiritual dream leaves you feeling inspired, motivated, filled with hope and at peace.

Spiritual dreams stand out and are rarely forgotten. It is not uncommon to glean incredible insight from this type of dream, information that assists you in various areas throughout the rest of your life. Spiritual dreams are most likely to occur during the following periods in your life:
1. Before a significant change.
2. Before or during a shift in your perception about yourself and your life.
3. After a commitment to something meaningful has been expressed and is genuinely being pursued.
4. Following a major loss or change.
5. When becoming more aware of yourself, your circumstances, your life.

A rolling stone: By gathering no moss, the stone (representative of self) keeps progressing along its path. Hie caution here is not moving so fast that valuable lessons get left by the wayside.
Standing stones: Indicative of nature worship and earth religions. This may reveal an interest in same, or an urge to get closer to the land. This can also be an alternative circle, cross, or wheel emblem, depending on the stones’ configuration.

Throwing stones: Casting aspersions that may or may not be accurate. Placing the blame on others without seeing your own faults.
Birth stones: Dreaming of your own birth stone is very serendipitous.
Boulders: An alternative type of obstacle dream, where going around this issue is not the answer. You must find a way to clear this path, or go over the boulder instead of avoiding the issues. Alternatively, the boulder may block your path for a good reason, such as one balanced at the edge of an abyss.
Geodes: A hidden treasure. Don’t always judge a book by its cover alone—look a little further than the superficial in this situation.
The effort will yield life’s intangible riches, all of which are well worth your time.
