At first glance, it would seem that the angel and the virgin represent the Christian faith, but both actually predate it. The virgin was known as Isis to the Egyptians, Myrrha to the Greeks and Juno to the Romans. In each incarnation she may be seen standing on the crescent moon with stars circling her head. The virgin, in whatever guise she reaches your dreams, is considered a symbol of good fortune. Pay attention to what she is holding in her hands.
If she carries a ray of sunlight, this represents spiritual progress.
If she carries a chalice of dew, this may be seen as encouragement to reform your ways, and if she is playing a lyre, this suggests a period of calmness and introspection.
Angels are another form of celestial messenger sent to guard over us. To imagine one appearing is, as with the virgin, a symbol of spiritual protection and inspiration.
If angels give you advice in a dream, what they tell you should always be taken very seriously. Nowadays, with a greater acceptance of the appearance of angelic figures, they are once again accepted as messengers of enlightenment.
If you are religious, visions of an angel in your dream may be taken as validation of belief, but if you are not religious, you can take solace in the thought that you have a spiritual protector watching over you. Another interpretation suggests that dreaming of an angel suggests you are searching for this unconditional love and support in waking life, and the dream is urging you to find these qualities within yourself.

Dreams of something being broken symbolize that you are feeling fragile, vulnerable, and that you are at the end of a cycle.

The state of brokenness can be used to symbolize everything from poverty (“broke”) to forcible entry (a “break-in”) to fundamental damage (“broken down”) to emotional abandonment (as in having one’s heart “broken”). Breaking may also have positive connotations, as when one breaks open the seal on a letter or the packaging of a gift or a new purchase. Any one of these connotations might be indicated, and thus brokenness must be interpreted in the larger context of the dream.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
You are dreaming of a loss to the foundational integrity of some aspect of your life. Bones as foundational elements indicate that the essence of the stressor that is being expressed has to do with how something is structured or being supported.
If you dream of a bone being broken, it tells you that some area of your life is on shaky ground.
The solidity or strength beneath that which is creative or expressive is what is compromised.
If your dream included the injury itself, add the means by which your bones were broken to your interpretation, including if there was another person responsible.
The more creative you are with your rumination of these symbolic meanings, the more successful your interpretation will be.

Dreams of walking on broken glass, seeing or being surrounded by shards of glass or, even worse (and far from everyday), having to eat broken glass may represent cutting words or wounding experiences. The vivid image in the dream is designed to draw your attention to a pain that you may have been denying in waking life. It can also refer to something clear and pure that has been broken, suggesting the shattering of expectations. Typically, such dreams are linked to personal, rather than career, conflicts.
If you have such a dream, has something in your waking life changed dramatically and has that change caused you pain? If you are eating the glass, this suggests that you are taking in the painful experience, but it may be asked whether you are trying to swallow rather than acknowledge your pain.
If you are walking on glass, consider how your direction in life is causing you pain.... The Element Encyclopedia
(Absence; Becoming unknown; Loss of tracks) If one disappears from his house or from the country, and if his tracks could not be located in the dream, it means taking a long journey, turning out to be where he is suspected to be, getting married in that place, falling in love with an unknown person, falling sick in a foreign land, or it could mean death ifthe person is sick. However the disappearance of God’s loving people in a dream perhaps means thinking about one’s beloved, or being exposed to uncommon mysteries of the universe.
If one disappears within the earth without going through a hole in his dream, and ifhe remains a long time therein until people think that he will never come out again in the dream, it means self-deception, arrogance and love for the wor ld, and such a person will die in that pursuit as a consequence of adventuring with his own life.

This is an archetypal character aspect that represents the healing that occurs through the principles of love and compassion. While there are many other archetypal representations of the power of love, this entry will limit itself to these two, as they are perhaps the most widely recognized symbols of divine forgiveness in the history of the human race. In dream work, they should be treated symbolically as archetypes, and their appearance in a dream indicates that you are experiencing a high level of self-discovery and integration. Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Quan Yin, Buddhist goddess of mercy and compassion, embody the feminine principle in its highest evolution.
The feminine principle connects to the power of love and receptivity. Both of these figures are revered by millions as the purveyors of forgiveness and unconditional love. Though the traditions that created each of them could not be more different, what they offer to those who turn to them in their hour of need is exactly the same. One of the most difficult challenges that all human beings face is the process of forgiveness, and the ability to forgive one’s self is particularly elusive.
The human mind is not built for unconditional love, even though it is a concept that many who travel the path of service continually strive to achieve. No matter how she may appear to you, the archetype of the divine mother can help you inch your way out of shame and resentment and move toward the healing that can only come through love and mercy.
The appearance of one of these great figures in a dream is to put you on notice that you are in a moment of elevating consciousness and self-integration.
It is not uncommon for any archetypal figure to be silent in a dream; it is their mere presence that embodies the impact of the dream.
If words and messages are present in the dream, take them to heart and do so literally. However, if this is not the case, your best use of such a dream is silent gratitude for the gift of such a powerful experience of elevated consciousness.
(Idol) A statue in a dream represents falsehood, inventions, make-shift, fiction, illusion, heedlessness, or a nice looking person who is full of deception.

If the statue is made of silver in the dream, it means that one elicits sexual relationship with his servant, or with a foreign woman, or perhaps just a friendship.
If the statue is made of gold in the dream, it means that one may commit an abominable action, or a religious inequity, or seeks profits from someone at the expense of displeasing God Almighty and consequently, one will suffer financial losses or health problems.
If the statue combines mixed material of bronze, copper, steel, iron, or lead in the dream, it means that such a person uses his religious garb to make profits, and that he often forgets about his Lord.
