Dreaming that you are in front of huge amounts of food or beverage but unable to try them represents a situation of abstinence.
It is often a recurrent dream, especially, while dieting or for individuals that are trying to overcome an addiction. It represents the enormous effort the dreamer is exerting in order to achieve their goal. Sometimes, a former smoker dreams that he holds a cigar and, without even realizing, has smoked half of it. Frequently, the dream ends violently. The dreamer wakes up terrified, feeling that all her effort was in vain. This type of dream seems to be a signal from the unconscious not to trust your self-control entirely and remain alert to avoid falling back into such a vice.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Dreams that feature your ancestors in some way indicate the web of cultural and family influences from which your personality has arisen.
If a particular ancestor is highlighted, then you need to explore your personal associations with that person. For example, your great-aunt could have been renowned for her psychic abilities, so a dream about her might represent that intuitive tendency in you. Family scenes in your dream may represent feelings of security and unity, or a desire for this in your waking life. The appearance of your whole family together in a dream can indicate that you are yearning for the security and togetherness of childhood and home. On the other hand, if you dream that you see your family but are not present among them or are ignored by them, perhaps you feel emotionally distant from them at present. The appearance or mention of your family name in dreamland calls attention to your heritage or family situation.
If family planning is a feature of your dream, this suggests the need to take responsibility for your future. A family room suggests congeniality. Members of the extended family (such as cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews) usually appear in a dream as an aspect of yourself relevant to the person you dreamed about. For example, if your cousin is shy in waking life, his appearance in a dream may refer to the inhibited part of yourself.
To dream of a family tree may indicate your true spiritual heritage, providing you with a record of your origins and your place in the overall scheme of things; alternatively, if you believe in reincarnation, particularly genetic reincarnation, it may represent your own past lives.
If you are finding it difficult to analyze the meaning of your dream, it may be that your unconscious has cast a feminine or masculine archetype in the role of the relation. To determine if this is the case, ask yourself if your dream uncle has more in common with the archetypal wise old man than your father’s brother, or if your dream niece has more in common with the archetypal amazon or huntress....

A dream in which you received a death sentence or were being led to your execution or are requesting euthanasia is a rather dramatic way of symbolizing the need to change a certain aspect of your life as soon as possible.
If you dreamed that you were waiting for your execution, perhaps even standing on a platform with a blindfold on, this suggests feelings of guilt in waking life or the refusal to acknowledge some feeling or action. Your dreaming mind is urging you to make amends, or express or even confess to something before it is too late. Also ask yourself whether you feel you are dead meat or a dead man walking in waking life, whether you are in danger of losing your head or are waiting for the axe to fall. If, however, you were the executioner in the dream, who or what do you need to put to death or put an end to in waking life? If the person you needed to kill was unknown to you, is there an unpleasant task or duty that you must execute in waking life?
If you dreamed of someone being sacrificed, perhaps even yourself, the message may be that the well-being of your family, loved ones or community needs to take precedence right now over your own hopes and desires.

The texture and feel of your dream clothes can be important.
If the fabric is irritating or uncomfortable, this may suggest that a part of your waking life is also uncomfortable; for example, a person, a place or a job. Leather, silk and chiffon are all regarded as sensual fabrics because they titillate the senses with their feel and aroma; as a result, they may have sexual connotations in a dream. They are also prized fabrics and their inclusion in dreams may reflect a dual longing in the dreamer to be perceived as a cut above the rest and to enjoy a luxurious life.
Man-made fabrics like nylon, polyester or plastic in the dream world point out that someone’s appearance or persona (maybe your own) is false or limited. These fabrics can also be itchy, so if they cause you problems in your dream world, can you draw a parallel with someone, or something, irritating you in waking life? Or is your itchiness self-inflicted by your choice of clothes when other options are available?

Throughout our existence we are striving to integrate levels of consciousness within us, for then we will know no limits in awareness. A dream helps us begin to bridge these levels: the conscious, subconscious and superconscious minds.
The conscious mind perceives space-time reality through the five senses and is the rational or intellectual level. The subconscious is like a storage bank which contains all experiences in this lifetime, both in and out of the body. The superconscious goes way beyond. It is like the God-self, or higher consciousness, that is totally detached and watches what is going on. It understands completely the life purpose and soul mission. It is from this level we are able to get in tune with our whole life plan.
Dreams are your direct link to God, higher self or guidance. Although all knowledge is available to us, we cannot have instant enlightenment. We must be able to stay grounded and utilize information as it is given, incorporating it into our lives before going on to the next step.
My guidance has explained: "There is no instant enlightenment. You want to be very sure that you are grounded as you are opening up to higher levels of awareness. By getting insight through dreams and applying it in your daily life, you begin to integrate understanding. You realize that you are completely responsible for your own life and have no right to inflict your will upon another. As your insight expands, you earn the right to move on to the next level. If all were instantly given to you, you would not know how to use such power and knowledge."... Dreampedia

Dr Ernest Hartmann carried out studies in connection with people who have stable sleep patterns. His aim was to define whether waking events influenced people’s need for sleep.
For instance, a loss of boyfriend or stress caused many young women to have an increased need for sleep. Some people who had undergone successful psychotherapy for their emotional difficulties, and some meditators, found their sleep need was decreased.
Wanting to know more about why these situations changed sleep need, Hartmann went on to study dream sleep in a group of women who suffered premenstrual tension (PMT). This group were prone to depression and irritability during PMT—records show there is an unusually high rate of murder, suicide and admission to psychiatric hospitals during this time. Although Hartmann found this group needed a little more sleep time than a control group, the main feature of change was their increased need for dreaming. Their length of time spent in dreaming increased in relationship to their depression.
The conclusion reached was that one of the functions of dreaming is to help deal with difficult states of emotion or anxiety. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Dreams can be used to explore your feelings about yourself. For example, if you see other people touching or loving each other and feel excluded or dream that you are surrounded by loved ones, this often expresses a need for the comfort, support and unconditional affection that you enjoy when someone is completely in love with you. Such dreams could be a strong indication that your levels of selfesteem need a boost; one way to do that is to seek out the love and support of those closest to you. Alternatively, the characters in your dream may represent aspects of yourself. Are they warm and loving or were you unable to reach or feel them because they were so self-centered?
Dreams in which you see yourself reaching out in some way suggest a desire for something or someone you do not have; this may either be an emotional or a physical absence. Your dream may also be telling you that you are trying to manipulate circumstances or control others with your emotional neediness. This is particularly relevant if your efforts to reach out and touch others are rejected or received with distaste. Witnessing a dream betrothal, wedding or engagement is another variation of the wish-fulfillment compensatory dream. Lastly, dreams in which you are in love with someone—it could be anyone you know or do not know in waking life—but your feelings are not reciprocated are less positive, as they reveal a fear of being rejected by your loved ones in waking life or uncertainty about the affection of someone about whom you care deeply in waking life.

Anthropologists, psychologists and dream analysts often find similar themes in dreams that appear to transcend all generations and cultures. Whilst not all experts agree on the same list and frequency, the list below is representative of what are generally accepted as common dream themes. You’ll notice that both fantasy and contemporary scenarios appear in the list, and when it comes to interpretation, both the surreal and the everyday can be rich sources of symbolism.
Being chased or attacked Many people dream of being pursued or attacked, although who or what is attacking or doing the pursuing varies from place to place. These dreams are a natural response to life stress; it could be that events are catching up with you or perhaps you trying to run away from something.
Being lost or trapped In these very common dreams, you’re lost and feeling desperate. You may be buried alive or locked in a cage. You dream of not being able to move; you’re powerless to scream or breathe. Or you may feel desperate for the toilet and unable to find one. These dreams may occur when you feel confusion or conflict about how to act in waking life.
Being injured, ill or dying Such dreams may involve deaths of famous people, your parents or children, a lover and even yourself. When you dream about an accidental death of any person, that person’s death symbolizes something in you that is no longer functioning.
It can also suggest new beginnings; out with the old and in with the new. Another common scenario under this theme is of teeth falling out or crumbling.
This might have a physical origin in people gritting or grinding teeth during sleep. Freud suggested that dreams of teeth falling out are related to fears of castration, but women have this dream as often as men.
Other psychologists believe the dream reflects anxiety about your appearance and how others perceive you.
Car or other vehicle trouble An out-of-control vehicle is a fairly common nightmare among all people and ages, whether or not the dreamers actually drive. Such a dream may occur when the dreamer feels events in waking life are out of control.
House or property, loss or damage In these dreams, your house is damaged or destroyed by fire, water or other causes. These dreams may surface because you feel that some valuable aspect of waking life is at risk.
Dreams about losing a wallet, watch or cherished piece of jewelry, such as a wedding ring, also fall into this category.
Meanings vary depending on what is lost or damaged. The flip side of this is that dreams about discovering new spaces or rooms in your home, or dreams about repairs or improvements are also common.
These dreams may occur when you feel that some valuable aspect of waking life is improving.
Poor test or other poor performance You’ve probably dreamed of arriving for a test and found the exam has already started. Or you search fruitlessly for the examination room.
This is a common dream that can occur years after school or college; it usually occurs when you feel you are somehow being ‘tested’ in waking life. Some psychologists think the dreams can denote anxiety about sexual performance.
Falling or flying? Falling is one of the most common dreams among people of all ages, and may be a reflection of feeling insecure, helpless or of having no support or solid grounding. Some people may actually fall from their beds during this dream.
Dreaming about drowning is less common, and often occurs when a person feels overwhelmed.
Dreams about flying, swimming or dancing are the flip side of falling or drowning dreams. Such optimistic dreams inspire, as the dreamer is lifted to spiritual heights or is filled with creative notions.
Pleasurable swimming may mean freely exploring your depths; dreams of dance may be a metaphor for moving freely through your life.
Being naked in public or inappropriately dressed. This is a common dream scenario that occurs at all ages, even with children. The dreams involve feelings of exposure and vulnerability, and often include an element of embarrassment or shame.
On the other hand, dreams of wearing a special outfit may suggest you feel good about your body or your life.
Missing the train or connection You rush to catch a departing bus, train, airplane or ship, only to find it has left without you.
These dreams reflect feelings that you are missing out on something in waking life.
Machine or telephone malfunction dreams are another variation on this theme, often occurring when you feel anxious about making an emotional connection or when you feel you’re losing touch with someone.
Natural or man-made disasters You’re confronted with overwhelming floods, tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tornadoes, hurricanes, bombings or chemical warfare.
These dreams may depict personal problems raging out of control. Dreams of vibrant flowers, verdant hillsides or uplifting music that leaves the dreamer feeling inspired are the flip side of disaster dreams.... Common Dreams
A spiritual threat is one that forces us to reassess our beliefs. Most often it will contain options of action that lead to a degree of inevitability either way.
