Dream Interpretation Urgent | Dream Meanings


To dream that you are supporting an urgent petition, is a sign that you will engage in some affair which will need fine financiering to carry it through successfully.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Dreams of an urgent matter are helping you to vent out your stress about being caught in the illusion of time. Alternatively, your dream may be giving you the message that it is time for you to take action and to stop procrastinating. See Processing Dreams.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous

If you dream of having an urgent matter to take care of this is an omen of warning that you have left some small thing, that in reality will become very important, undone. Consult your entire dream for a clue to what it is if you cannot remember it off hand.

If someone is consulting you on an urgent matter that only you can solve then this denotes that something will come along that will require some financial help and/or a manipulation of funds.

Earth

(Country; Farm; Floor; Glob; Land; Locality; Place; Property) In a dream, each locality has a particular meaning that relates to its substance and conditions.

To see the land of the great gathering on the Day of Resurrection in a dream means the fulfillment of a promise, or that the person seeing the dream is worthy of keeping secrets. Earth in a dream also means becoming rich after poverty, or having peace after experiencing extreme difficulties. It also means a marriage to a beautiful young virgin, or it could mean receiving guidance and attaining a high ranking and an honorable position in the world.

To see the glob being carried on the back of a whale or a steer without changing its conditions in a dream means that the king of the country will be dethroned. He will either step down or be replaced by his minister. Sweeping the floor and caring for the floor mat or carpet in a dream means to care for one’s community or family. Earth in a dream also represents one’s mother, or the governor of the land. Working in a farmland in a dream, seeing its tools, elements, seeds, water, plowing, harvesting, landscaping, blossoming of its flowers, their fragrance, light, whatever positive or negative results one sees therein in a dream represent such success or failure. Seeing an unknown land could denote one’s mother, child, husband, wife, partner, guardian, a servant, or it could mean one’s heirs. Earth in a dream also may mean arguments, knowledge or clarity of speech. Earth in a dream also represents the element of the world, as the skies represent the element of the hereafter. Ifboth the earth and the skies are seen simultaneously in a dream, it means that they can never be joined together, as the world and the hereafter do not exist in one place.

If the top soil of the land is cracked in a dream, it means that the land is rich and arable. Such cracks in a dream also signify the rise of invented religious dogmas and the spread of evil and innovation. Seeing the stretch of the land in a dream means the release of prisoners, or in the case of a pregnant woman, it means the nearing of her delivery.

If one sees an earthquake and the destruction of life and property in a dream, this element represents straying from the path, pride and heedlessness. Ifthe earth appears to fold over him in a dream, it means losingone stature in the world, divorce orlosing in business.

If the earth changes into iron or rocks in one’s dream, it means that one’s wife will not bear children, or it could mean changing one’s trade or profession.

If the earth opens and swallows him in a dream, it means that he is ashamed of somethinghe did, or it could mean hurdles in one’s business, a journey, or imprisonment.

If the earth looks like a desert land in the dream, it may mean that such a person may undertake an urgent trip. Beating the ground with a stick in a dream means taking a business trip. Eating dirt in a dream means earnings an equal amount of money to what one eats in his dream. Ifthe earth cracks and opens, and if a beast comes and speaks to the people in their own tongue in a dream, it means that people will witness a miracle or a happening that will bewilder everyone. This may also mean nearing the end of one’s life. Digging the earth in a dream also means plotting and deceiving others.

If the earth speaks good words to someone in the dream, it means that he or she will attain whatever they are told. On the other hand, if the earth reprimands someone in the dream, it means that he must amend his actions for the better and ask for God’s forgiveness and guidance.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

True Incident

Imaam Muhammad bin Sireen (RA) was approached by a person who said that he saw a very shameful and disturbing dream and that he was ashamed to reveal it because of its nature.

The Imaam asked him to write down the dream on a sheet of paper. He wrote that he had been away from home for three months. During his absence he dreamed that he has returned home, finding this wife asleep on her bed while two sheep with horns were engaged in battle near her bed.

The one injured the other. Because of this dream he has avoided approaching his wife and yet, by Allah, he loved her a great deal.

When the Imaam read this letter, he said to him not to leave his wife as she was a chaste and honourable woman. He explained the dream thus: “When she heard that you were returning home shortly, in fact you were almost home, she urgently sought for something with which to remove her public hair. Finding nothing she chose to use a scissors rather. In her haste, she inured herself causing a deep wound on that part of her body.

To confirm this, go straight to her and see for yourself.”

The man went straight to his wife expressing his desire to fulfils his need. She said: “No! Not until you explain to me why you had avoided me for seven months!” He gave his explanation regarding his dream and the interpretation given by the learned Imaam. Upon this she exclaimed: “The Imaam has spoken the truth” Then she took his hand and passed it over the cotton wool covering the wound. When he ws satisfied he went back to the Imaam to report his findings.

The Imaam praised and glorified Allah for having guided him to the correct interpretation of the dream.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

Islamic Dream Interpretation

Wall

A wall in a dream represents knowledge, guidance, cognizance, knowing secrets, judgment, or separation between friend. Standing by a wall or sitting on it, and depending on its conditions in a dream represents one’s own state.

A wall in a dream also represents a strong, wealthy, powerful and religious person.

If the wall needed urgent repairs, and if a group of people come to rescue it in the dream, it represents a man of knowledge, or the Imam ofa mosque who has lost his control or respect, then some friends will come to his rescue and to help him restore his rank.

If a successful businessman sees the walls of his house collapsing in a dream, it means that he will recuperate a lost treasure.

If one sees a wall caving over his head, or falling over other people in a dream, it means that he has committed many sins and unless his repents, his punishment will be swift.

The caving-in of a wall toward the inside of a house in a dream means an illness, but if it falls toward the outside in the dream, it means death. Seeing a crack in the wall in a dream means that someone in the family will brace against him. Grabbing to a wall in a dream means the nearing of one’s death, pending how firmly one is grabbing to it in the dream. Grabbing to a wall in a dream is also interpreted as holding firmly to one’s interest in a strong person. Ifone builds a wall then tears it down in a dream, it means that he will attempt at destroying someone’s livelihood, or perhaps kill him. Ifone sees and recognizes a wall in his dream, it represents a close friend who may die from depression.

A wall in a dream is also interpreted as a mighty person who cannot be managed except through kindness. Jumping over a wall in a dream means reverting from being a believer to a disbeliever, or accepting and following the advice of a disbeliever. Seeing one’s picture reflected in a wall in a dream means one’s death, and that his name will be itched on his gravestone.

If a traveller sees himselfreturning to his house, whereby its walls are renewed, it means that he will get married. Seeping water from a crack in a wall in one’s dream means adversities and stress.

Execution

Don’t panic when you have such a dream. This is a symbolic expression and not a threat. In some cases, the image of an execution can be particularly positive, because something is finally dying that has bothered you for a long time.

If you are the one who is being executed, this symbol indicates strong negative emotions, self-doubts, and guilt feelings.

If somebody else is being executed, it symbolizes the Other—usually characteristics or behavior that you must urgently discard. See also Death.

Altar

(see Carcass, Church, Holy Ground, Monastery, Te?nple)

The meeting of two worlds: religious and mundane. This is the place where traditionally the gods are honored, offerings get made, and many rituals take place. So, look beyond the altar to see what appears on it, and what occurs around it, for more insight.

If a sacrifice appears before you, ask yourself what things need to be left behind so that you can get a fresh start. Alternatively, consider if you’ve been giving too much of yourself, and sacrificing personal needs in the process.

Approaching ail altar: Acknowledging an urgent need for outside assistance of some sort. We often go to our image of the Divine when we want answers to, or help with, particularly perplexing problems.

If you have hesitated to seek that help from friends or the Universe, now is the time for action.

Black

(1) A black hole or dark depths - for example, an unlit cellar or a deep well or oceanic depths - may represent the unconscious. This blackness mav be frightening, so long as the unconscious remains alien and unfamiliar. However, black can also be warm and comforting - which is whv insomniacs arc sometimes advised to close their eyes and imagine themselves wrapped.round in black velvet.

If you begin to trust your unconscious (which means trusting Nature), each previously horrifying or disgusting part of your unconscious will show itself in a new light, as something vou need for personal fulfilment. Putting vour consciousness

into the unconscious - becoming aware of it - means putting more and more light into the darkness.

If a star or other bright light appears in the blackness, this may be seen as a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’, that is, as a symbol of the ‘illumination’ - new wisdom or insight - that may be achieved by dwelling a while in the unconscious and making its better acquaintance.

(2) Black (particularly for white people) may symbolize evil.

If so, bear in mind that, as a general rule, what appears in your dreams is always some part of you, and that the so-called ‘evil’ (and therefore repressed) parts of you are really evil only if, because of neglect, they become rebellious, or if you let them take control away from your conscious self. These ‘evil’ things are transformed into good things - creative, and bringing fuller life, happiness and wholeness - when conscious and unconscious interact and establish a harmonious working relationship.

NB It is only Judaism, Christianity and Islam that have a thoroughgoing dualism of good and evil, and a matching moral dogmatism. In the earliest known forms of religion, and in traditions (such as the Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist traditions) that have not cut themselves off from their early roots, good and evil are opposite but equally necessary’ components of reality; and in mystical traditions (including Jewish, Christian and Islamic mysticism) even God is described as a coming together of opposites - good and evil, but also masculine and feminine.

(3) A person dressed in black may represent vour shadow.

(4) A black-skinned person (if you are white-skinned) may represent either the shadow or closeness to Nature.

(5) A black animal probably represents some unconscious repressed drive or emotion.

If the animal is fierce, this possibly means that something yrou have repressed is now urgently pressing you to give it your conscious attention and let it have some expression in your w aking life.

(6) Blackness (as in a black night, etc.) may simply signify’ diminished visibility, in which case the meaning of the dream may have something to do w ith a loss of orientation in your life. Do vou feel you don’t know’ which w’ay to go; or that you don’t hav e the energy’ or will to go in any direction? If so, make a pact w ith v our unconscious to die effect that, if it will tell you where you have the potential - and the need - to go, you will respond accordingly in your life. Then pav close attention

to the dreams that follow. (If you go the next few nights without dreaming - or, more precisely, without recalling any dreams - this probably means that you are backing out of the pact and setting up a defence against what you fear your unconscious might have to tell you.)

(7) Black may symbolize despair or deep depression.

If so, follow the advice given in (6) above.

(8) In many parts of the world black is associated with death.

It is possible, therefore, that this is what the colour signifies in your dream. Bear in mind, however, that death in a dream may refer to something internal: the ‘death’ - or the giving up - of something within you (for example, some irrational fear, or other negative attitude or emotion). See also Death.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Sacrifice

(1) If you are being sacrificed in the dream, there are at least three possibilities.

The dream may be drawing your attention to a martyr complex, habitual and compulsive self-punishment, self-denial or self-denigration. Such negative conditioning can be got rid of only by reconditioning, by making positive affirmations every day: for example, ‘I love myself dearly5, ‘I accept myself totally5, ‘I have a unique value5, and ‘I desen e all the good things life offers me.5

Your unconscious may be telling you it is time to let the old you die, to make way for the new and truer you. The self-image you have accepted and conformed to in the past is probably too lopsided and needs to be supplemented by utilizing capacities or qualities that have till now lain dormant; or it may have led you completely astray from your true self, in which case it needs to be removed altogether.

Perhaps the dream is expressing a feeling that you are being abused or undervalued by other people.

(2) Arc you doing the sacrificing? If so, what is being sacrificed will usually represent some aspect of vour personality - desire, ambition, habit, prejudice - that you have given up or are being urged (by your unconscious) to give up. (If an animal is being slain, it will probably symbolize an instinctual impulse or emotion.) This is one of many cases where you have to decide whether a dream is descriptive or prescriptive: showing what you have done (and asking you to stop doing it), or showing what you ought to do. You should have no difficulty in

knowing whether you have done what the dream depicts.

If you have, the dream is asking you not to do it.

If you have not done it, the dream is asking you to do it, for the sake of personal fulfilment.

It is important to remember that sacrifice is meant to be creative: it is the giving up of something in order to achieve and enjoy something better. And if you think ‘better’ has nothing to do with enjoyment but means simply what duty requires, then you need to remember that making a sacrifice either resentfully or merely for duty’s sake is bound to be destructive in its effects both on you and on those you are in relationship with.

It is also important to remember that ‘To everything there is a season... a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast aways (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6). There comes to us all a time for transcending animality (e.g. making sex a vehicle for love and adoration) but to attempt such things before the proper time can only breed resentment and end in disaster. Your dreams will tell you the time!

(3) Is your act of sacrifice a violent one? If so, it would suggest that some (partly unconscious) mechanism of self-punishment is at work in you and you urgently need to ask yourself why you feel guilty. Almost certainly the cause will lie in early childhood and will be an entirely innocent desire.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Suicide

(1) If you commit suicide in a dream, it probably means you feel unable to cope any longer with a problem that has obsessed and frustrated you for a long time. Perhaps you need professional help.

(2) Do you witness someone else’s suicide? Perhaps some part of you that has been repressed and neglected is now getting desperate - in which case you need to give it urgent attention with a view to meeting its legitimate demands.

(3) If the person committing suicide is close to you in real life, it may be that you harbour (unconscious) negative feelings towards him or her.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

(1) A telephone ringing may mean your unconscious has something important to tell you.

(3) Arc you just afraid of using the telephone? That may mean you are frightened of getting something off your chest. Why are you frightened?... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Darkness

Traditionally, it is identified with the principle of evil and the occult forces, though dreaming of darkness possibly reflects your mood, perhaps somewhat depressed or pessimistic.

If the darkness frightens you, perhaps you are afraid to investigate the unknown parts of yourself.

If you get lost in it, the dream is representing your feelings of insecurity, despair, or depression.

If it is, instead, “the darkness before dawn,” your unconscious is optimistic that your prospects are more promising than you think. A light at the end of a tunnel or the stars and the moon shining in the sky is an indication that your aspirations and desires are positive and urgently seek a light to guide you in life and tell you where to go. During the darkness, that’s when the unconscious lives more intensely. For this reason, the night is the symbolic moment in which characters from horror novels such as witches, ghosts, etc. meet These frightening figures are only representing our hidden aspects, or the lower forces mentioned earlier.

The Chinese oracle I Ching, used by Carl Jung to help with dream interpretations, says that when the darkness is so great that you can see absolutely nothing, it is to get darker. So, things can only get better.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Stabbing

If in dreams you stab someone it means you must solve an emotional conflict that has been postponed for too long; it has consequently taken on exaggerated proportions. Therefore, if you interpret it correctly, you need to urgently approach the person or the emotion stabbed in order to solve this problem in a positive way. In this case, dreams validate the premise that there is a thin line between love and hate. Not surprisingly, it is common for oneiric images to display scenes in which the subject attacks those whose affection is most needed.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Garden Flowers

In general, cultivated flowers symbolize how we can influence and control our development, whilst wild flowers and weeds symbolize spontaneity and how nature’s abundance comes in all shapes and varieties.

If you were planting flowers in rows in a garden or see formally arranged flowers in a flower bed, this could be suggesting that your life is a little too organized and lacking in spontaneity. Although it could also indicate that your personal life needs putting in order, in general flowers appearing in a dream garden suggest that your life lacks vibrancy and you are too preoccupied with the practical business of earning a living.

A dream of an inviting, flower-filled garden scene may be encouraging your waking self to relax.

If you dreamed that you were lounging lazily in a garden surrounded by flower-filled borders, your unconscious may have been mirroring your sense of satisfaction with your waking life but also may have been encouraging you to take the time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

If the flowers in the garden are dead, wilting or attacked by a worm or grub, this conveys a message of regret and danger.

If flowers are strewn across your garden, your house or even yourself, this suggests that your life contains a great deal of pleasure and fulfillment.

If you were watering or feeding the flowers in the garden or anywhere else in your dream, this suggests that you need to work on a relationship. Did you dream that your garden suddenly became parched and you were rushing to find water to feed the flowers? If this was the case, perhaps a dream like this is implying that you need to pay more attention to those around you, as your close personal relationships— symbolized by the drought-stricken flowers—are in urgent need of nourishment and rejuvenation.

Man-made Disaster

Disaster dreams typically indicate that something is terribly wrong with your life or about to go wrong if the current situation remains unchanged. They will tell you that a job, a relationship, a religion, or a conscious attitude is not good for you and is leading you to crisis.

If the disaster in the dream is specifically manmade and not natural, such as a terrorist attack, or a plane, train, car, or bus crash, this image may be urging you to change an attitude or belief system before the situation in waking life becomes perilous. These dreams are telling you that you are not in a safe place and you need to move away from it.

Oftentimes, the unconscious will use cultural symbols and images to bring to mind some thematic experience or situation. For example, to dream of the attack on the World Trade Center can be symbolic of a tragedy, a horrendous situation, an attack, or the destruction of one’s working environment. Similarly, any form of terrorist attack can be symbolic of an intrusive invasion of your personal space in waking life, a violent clash of opinions or cruel, sadistic and cowardly behavior.

If you dreamed of making a panicstricken call to the emergency services, could your unconscious have been highlighting your fear that an emotional trauma has devastated your world, or is about to, and that you urgently need help? A dream focusing on a disaster in your home may be saying something about your attitude to life. It might be that you are ready to make important changes that will involve destroying what you have built up over the years, or it could be a warning that your present, or planned, actions could prove disastrous in the long run. Much depends on your reaction. Supposing that you dreamed your house was falling down; if you were relieved, unconcerned or walked away from the ruins, you are ready to move on and leave the past behind you.

You may have had a dream that focused on manmade environmental pollution and the disease, destruction, decay and death to which this leads.

If you have had such a dream, the dream is urging you to avoid an attitude, thought or emotion that is not good for you, now or in the future.

Other people’s attitudes and beliefs may also be contaminating the way you think and feel, and this can sometimes be shown in dreams about toxic waste or poisons. On the other hand your dream may be urging you to become more environmentally aware.

If demolition features in the dream, it can highlight either self-inflicted trauma or changes in your life, depending on the circumstances of the dream.

If you are carrying out the demolition, you should be in control, but if someone else is, you may feel powerless in the face of change. You may also be conscious of a build-up of tension within you that can only by released by a breakdown of old attitudes and approaches.... The Element Encyclopedia

Phone Won’t Work

In this kind of dream you are in a situation in which you urgently need to call for help but, maddeningly, the phone won’t work. Either the line is dead, the buttons don’t work or you get through to the wrong person or end up with an operator who cuts you off. You try to explain your situation but no one is willing to help. During these types of dream, tension levels are high. Phones and mobile phones in dreams represent your ability to communicate and dreams about phone trouble typically occur when things are reaching crisis point in waking life. You may be finding it hard to get your message across and to get the help you need.

If the operator puts you on hold or ignores you, it is more likely that you have been ignoring your own needs for rest, outside help or relaxation. The message this dream is trying to convey to you is that it is time to pay closer attention to something that you may have been putting off; this may involve asking for qualified help and support. Phone dreams are usually signals to be honest with yourself and listen to your intuition. A variation of this dream is the email error on your computer screen, indicating an inability to communicate with someone important in your life. Freudians might see phallic symbolism if you are using a mobile phone, suggesting that once again sex is the root of the problem. See also MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY.... The Element Encyclopedia

Grandparent

The appearance of grandparents in dreams can highlight your attitude towards them, as well as representing the traditions and beliefs handed down to you by them or your feelings about old age and death. It is often said that parents do not know if they have done a good job raising their children until their children have children of their own. As grandparents are often seen by children to be more sympathetic figures than parents in dreams, they may stand for wisdom, intuition or the desire for an untroubled relationship with your father and mother. Your dream grandparent may have appeared to remind you of the happy times you shared in childhood. Apart from reflecting a yearning for the security of childhood, dreaming of either of your grandparents may suggest that you are in urgent need of their guidance and experience as you face life’s dilemmas and pitfalls.

If you don’t associate the grandparent with impartial wisdom, ask yourself whether he or she may have been an archetype in disguise, especially the priest or priestess, or wise old woman or wise old man. Whichever archetype seems to fit your grandparent, their advice will help set you on the right path; the very appearance of a family elder in a dream indicates that you should look to the past for inspiration and solutions to your current problems. The key may be an ancestral trait you have inherited or an actual event in your family’s history that has parallels with your waking situation.

To dream of a grandparent who has died will usually be reassuring, telling you that you have inherited some of their wisdom. For Jungians, the grandfather may symbolize the wise old man; he can appear in various forms such as king, wizard, prophet, teacher, guru or priest. The grandmother may likewise symbolize the great mother archetype, which may appear as a goddess, wise old woman, prophet or teacher. Jung called these figures ‘mana personalities’, from the Melanesian word for ‘the divine’. These are symbols of the power and the wisdom that lies in the deepest part of the psyche, and dreams that contain mana figures represent a time of great spiritual progress and opportunity in waking life....

Daffodil / Narcissus

The cheerful yellow petals of the daffodil bring brightness to spring, when it is one of the first flowers to appear, showing that winter is over. Because of this it is a symbol of hope and renewal. Therefore if a daffodil appears in your dream, you may be entering a new phase of your life. On the other hand, you may urgently need an injection of cheerfulness and optimism to brighten your life.

The smaller form of daffodil, traditionally known as the narcissus, warns against self-centeredness and not to confuse shadow for substance.... The Element Encyclopedia
