LAMP

To see lamps filled with oil, denotes the demonstration of business activity, from which you will receive gratifying results. Empty lamps, represent depression and despondency.

To see lighted lamps burning with a clear flame, indicates merited rise in fortune and domestic bliss.

If they give out a dull, misty radiance, you will have jealousy and envy, coupled with suspicion, to combat, in which you will be much pleased to find the right person to attack.

To drop a lighted lamp, your plans and hopes will abruptly turn into failure.

If it explodes, former friends will unite with enemies in damaging your interests. Broken lamps, indicate the death of relatives or friends.

To light a lamp, denotes that you will soon make a change in your affairs, which will lead to profit.

To carry a lamp, portends that you will be independent and self-sustaining, preferring your own convictions above others.

If the light fails, you will meet with unfortunate conclusions, and perhaps the death of friends or relatives.

If you are much affrighted, and throw a bewildering light from your window, enemies will ensnare you with professions of friendship and interest in your achievements.

To ignite your apparel from a lamp, you will sustain humiliation from sources from which you expected encouragement and sympathy, and your business will not be fraught with much good. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

GOOD DEED

Doing a good deed in a dream means repentance, reestablishing the connection with one’s blood relations, uniting one’s family with love or being charitable in helping a poor person.

If one sees himself calling people to God Almighty in a dream, it means that he will be saved from hell-fire. Doing good deeds in a dream such as charity, prayers, invoking God’s blessings, helping others, protecting the rights of others, commanding what is lawful and shunning what is forbidden incurs the divine pleasure and bounty, and brings profits to one’s business, pays his debts, dispels his fears and leads him to receive a leading position in his community. Thanking God Almighty for His favors in a dream means receiving an inheritance. Doing a good deed in a dream also signifies receiving encouragement or having encouraging ambitions.

To spend money on God’s path in a dream means receiving money in wakefulness.... Islamic Dream Interpretation

FERRIS WHEEL

The Ferris wheel could be symbolic of the “circle of life.” It may represent the ups and downs of life that create the total life experience.

The circle is one of the most important dream symbols. It points to the center of personality and our being that in turn brings up issues of completeness and wholeness in our lives. Since the Ferris wheel is associated with fun and excitement, this dream may be an encouragement for the dreamer to “lighten up,” see the larger picture, and possibly develop a more positive attitude....

MARRIAGE

It is a symbol of commitment and, depending on the details of your dream, you may be currently dealing with this issue.

The commitment could be to your work, to yourself or to your partner. Mostly, a marriage in your dream represents the coming together all various parts of yourself (feminine and masculine, or spiritual and rational). It could represent a greater level of awareness where by the dreamer’s conscious and unconscious elements are becoming more familiar and are embracing one another.

The marriage dream is affirmation and encouragement to grow in self-awareness and to transform yourself. On a more practical level, if you are not married but would like to be, this dream could also be a form of wish-fulfillment.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

MONKEY

The monkey is a symbol that needs to be understood by considering the various associations that we make when thinking about them. Monkeys may represent lust, self-satisfaction and trickery.

A monkey may also represent positive attributes, such as agility, inspiration, a sense of freedom and a capacity to imitate. In Japan, toys that look like monkeys are given to children because monkeys are supposed to be able to drive out evil spirits. In India, the monkey is a symbol of soul. Thus, monkeys as symbols appear to have a double or twin meaning. Whether positive or negative, the monkey is revealing something to you about what is going on in your inner world. People usually think that monkeys are far less evolved and the expression “stop monkeying around” is understood by all.

The dream with a monkey may be an encouragement from you unconscious to continue to develop your personality by staying close to your own nature.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

PEN / PENCIL

Having a pen or a pencil in your dream may be symbolic of your need to communicate with yourself or others. Our ability to communicate through written language is a vitally important and necessary part of life. When we take our pen and write a check to pay bills, it can still be considered a form of communication! Writing is a form of self-expression, provides us with another way to think and express our thoughts. Dreams with writing tools in them, may be an encouragement for you to write and communicate. Whether you need to communicate with yourself or others, in private or professional life, is up to you to determine. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

URANUS(OURANOS)

In mythology, Uranus is the sky-god and the personification of Heaven. He represents the undifferentiated and limitless potential for growth and is symbolic of evolution.

The planet Uranus was discovered in 1781. Astrologically, it represents cosmic power that causes creation, progress, sudden changes and, at times, upheavals and interference. Seeing the planet Uranus in your dream may represent unexplored possibilities and potential. It may be an unconscious encouragement to create change and to progress.

If life appears to be a bit out of control and if many unsettling changes are occurring, Uranus in a dream may be a positive sign from the unconscious. It suggests that turmoil can be used to create new possibilities and that in the end things will be better off then when they began.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

ABREACTION

Example: For some considerable time I have been troubled by a nightmarish dream which is so realistic sometimes I think I am going to die. In my dream I have swallowed something which is literally choking me or is going to poison me. I wake up and rush down the stairs to the kitchen, spitting and choking, holding my throat and making all sorts of disturbing noises which frighten my wife. I have had this dream as many as five or six times a night. My doctor says it could be to do with the last war. I was a child then and my dad constantly had to wake me up to take us down to the shelter, sometimes as many as four times a night, and we were bombed out twice. I cannot recall having any fears about this at the time’ (Mr KT).

Abreaction is a re-experiencing of painful or traumatic events or situations. In many dreams it is obvious that the process underlying dreams is attempting to trigger an abreac­tion. This suggests the dream process, as Jung and Hadfield say, is a self-regulatory one in our psyche. In many cases where a person explores the feeling content of their dreams in a confident way, abreaction occurs. Although it has been given different names in recent years, such as primal therapy, rolfing, discharge, catharsis, abreaction is still a basic psycho­logical healing process. Pans of our experience become re­pressed because there is an automatic reaction in us to avoid pain. Therefore painful experience may never be fully felt or understood at the time. Reliving them allows us to review and integrate vital information about ourselves. Frequently all the analysis in the world cannot relieve a neurotic pattern until the repressed emotion holding it in place is released and un­derstood.

The strength with which we hold out against allowing our being to abreact spontaneously is seen in the above example. Mr KT is brought to the brink of reliving his very stressful childhood again and again. Yet he manages to avoid actual memory and, in particular, the experiencing of any childhood emotions and fears.

The opposite is shown in this account by Clive, who explored with me a dream about being shot in the arm in his father s shop. ‘For several hours I could find noth­ing about the dream. My mind simply wandered. But with help I persisted. Suddenly I seemed to break through, first to seeing how the shop was a place in which I have uncon­sciously experienced great emotional pain. My father was al­ways criticising. Never a word of encouragement. Then I burst into powerful sobbing as I felt the pain of wanting my father to love me, instead of cnticising all the time, and help me grow into somebody capable of meeting life. And then, some­thing I just had not wanted to see, the 30 years of my life I had wasted by avoiding any contact with authority. My father was the original authority in my life. I had cut off from him be­cause of the lack of support, and I had done the same with school and other authority situations. But what a relief to un­derstand myself, and to meet that young vulnerable boy I used to be. How I loved him and understood him/myself.’ abroad General: your feelings about that country.

If you have lived in that country: overall experience of that place. Were you happy there, lonely? What characteristics of the people did you take in?... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

ANCHOR

When an anchor appears in a dream it can generally be taken to mean the necessity to remain stable in emotional situations. We need to catch hold of a concept or idea which will give us a point of reference in difficult situations.

Psychologically, we need encouragement to develop the ability to ‘hold fast’ during a period of instability.

If we can ride out the storm we shall survive. When an anchor is being dragged during a dream, the external forces are too great for us.

FLOGGING

1- Any violent act against the person usually indicates some form of punishment.

To dream of being flogged would indicate that we are aware that someone is driving us beyond our limits, often in an inappropriate manner. Flogging ourselves would highlight a type of masochism in our own personality.

2- Flogging someone else means we have to be careful that we are not attempting to impose our will on that person. While painful there is also a degree of encouragement and stimulation present.

MONEY

General Meaning: Money does not look the same today as it did in the time of the Old Testament. However the concept of trade and exchange certainly is the same.

• For more understanding on what money means in Scripture, look up gold and silver.

Dreams Positive:

In a positive light, money speaks of provision for your need.

• If you are having financial difficulties and dream of receiving large amounts of finances, then it is simply a picture of your desires at the moment.

• Often people dream of receiving money, but unfortunately it does not mean that this will happen in reality.

• I do believe it is an encouragement from the Lord to say that He desires to meet your need. However it is going to take more on your part to make that a reality.

• This dream was sent to give you hope, but you also need faith and love to bring it to pass.

• Dreaming of money is either an indication of your current desire, or a confirmation that the Lord will provide your need.

• Read the Way of Blessing for more on walking in prosperity.

• Visions • Positive: Although I have seen visions of money, I usually see it as gold coins in the spirit.

• Often I will see a treasure chest that is hidden and filled with money. When I see this, I know that the Lord is saying that He has provided our need, but that we must release it through prayer.

• If I see the money hidden, it is speaking of a blessing that is not so clear, but that I have to make effort to look for.

• If you see money along your road, it means that as you continue along the direction that the Lord has for you, the blessing will come automatically.

Negative: In prayer I have often seen a black hand holding onto money. This is a picture of a spirit of theft.

The enemy was stealing the blessing that God had for us.

• Also in Scripture, the love of money refers to the root of temporal values which can destroy you. It speaks of bribery, corruption, and as I said before, the root of temporal values.

• 1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

FLAG

An important feature of flags is they are placed on top of a pole or mast. This elevation symbolizes the exaltation of victory and self-assertion of a community. For these reasons, in dreams, a waving flag suggests you need encouragement to move forward, a backup that provides safety.

If you are carrying this flag to the top of a mountain it means that you will soon attain your goals. But if you lose it or it is stolen from you, you could lose the position you hold. It also has a sexual interpretation due to phallic connotation of the mast; If the flag hangs loose from the top of the mast, it may be a strong symbol of sexual unconfidence, impotence, or frigidity....

DREAM IT WITH FLOWERS

In Victorian America and Europe, flowers were attributed with specific meanings by young men and women who used them during courtship to send messages to each other, whether in a forthright manner or by more clandestine means. Straightforward romantic or poetic thoughts were conveyed by the presentation of a single bloom, whilst lengthier messages were communicated by larger arrangements.

Love and happiness were not the only feelings expressed by these floral epistles. Infidelity, jealousy, disdain and rejection were also expressed by a suitably chosen bloom. Whilst a simple flower may have been sent to a young lady to propose marriage, another seemingly innocuous blossom may have been sent in response, telling the gentleman caller to ‘get lost’. The color of the flower was extremely significant; to cite a few examples, red usually meant love, yellow indicated friendship, lavender suggested enchantment, and orange fascination.

As far as dream interpretation goes, the list of meanings is seemingly endless, as nearly every flower has been attributed with a specific meaning at some point in time. In Victorian times, the range of available flowers was limited, and so certain flowers had specific meanings; today, with so many flower choices, there are no rules—it’s the sentiment and personal association that gives the flower meaning to you in a dream. For those interested in the historic or generally accepted meanings of flowers, the list below has been compiled from a variety of different sources, including the American Society of Florists.

GAME ANIMALS

Game animals—notably the deer, rabbit and hare—offer encouragement, and dreamers should view their presence optimistically. The rabbit’s renowned ability to breed offers the promise of fertility in women and virility in men. Hares are closely associated with the moon goddess and they suggest an ability to see the magical in everything. Deer are also viewed as animals of the spirit. Due to the branching nature of their antlers, stags have been linked with the ‘tree of life’, and are thought to impart intuitive wisdom to those who dream of them.... The Element Encyclopedia

TOXIN

Toxic substances, such as cigarette smoke, controlled drugs and alcohol and other environmental toxins that can make you ill and pollute the environment often represent emotional toxins that render situations poisonous to you.

If you do not smoke in everyday life and find yourself lighting up in your dream and enjoying it, this suggests an addictive pattern in real life that may be related to unhealthy eating patterns or even relationships. In some cases, the image can represent unhealthy thinking patterns, such as anger, jealousy or obstinacy.

Knowing that your unconscious has sent you this warning should be enough encouragement to take a look at what is trying to control you and reduce the risks involved. A desire for sex may be expressed in the dream imagery of a cigarette placed between the lips and cupped in the hands when being lit, whilst a stubbed-out cigarette may signal the end of a love affair. Lighting a match could express the dreamer’s desire for enlightenment and spiritual love, matches that refuse to light express spiritual doubt and dead matches symbolize loss of faith. A cigar’s oral and masculine associations have been related to latent male homosexuality, although the cigar-smoking Freud discouraged overdoing this sexual symbolism with his famous comment, ‘sometimes a cigar is just a cigar’....

PARENTS

During the early years of your waking life it is likely that you were physically and emotionally dependent on one or both of your parents or, if either or both were absent, on an alternative mother or father figure. As you emerged into adolescence and adulthood, the chances are you became less reliant on them, yet memories of that early dependency usually remain with you on a conscious or unconscious level. Because your parents had such a great influence over you at a time when your personality was developing and you began to assert your individuality and independence, your feelings towards them will remain intense.

Dreams that feature your parents can have numerous interpretations but the key to understanding them depends on the feelings you associate with your parents, particularly those when you where a child and your parents were the center of your universe. When your dream parents are true to character, the message of your dream is usually easy to understand. For example, if your parents appeared in your dream with words of encouragement and love and they were, or are, this warm and loving in real life, then your dream may simply indicate that you are feeling insecure and in need of validation or unconditional love. Perhaps you dreamt that your parents scolded you about your recent poor performance at work and you have memories of them chiding you harshly over poor grades at school? If this is the case, it may be that your dream is highlighting your dissatisfaction at not living up to the standards your parents instilled in you.

If your parents appear together in your dream, this indicates the rules and codes you learned as a child that still speak to you from within.

If you are hurting, killing, burying or trying to avoid a parent in your dream, this suggests a desire to be free from restraints and values gathered from your parents. You may feel shocked by such a dream, but it is in fact a healthy sign of emerging independence as when your dream parents die or are beaten, you can inherit the power gained from what was good in your relationship.

Dreams in which your parents appear foolish, drunk or disorderly have a similar interpretation; they are a means of gaining independence from internalized values. Dreams in which your parents are crushing you are fairly easy to interpret, suggesting that you need to break away from childhood behavior patterns and develop as an individual. Dreams in which parents die or are dead already can be interpreted the same way. When a parent appears in your environment, home or workplace in your dream and there is no sense of tension, this indicates that you have learned to develop your sense of self and can accept your parents as friends.

Frequent appearances by one or both parents in dreams may be a sign that you have not thrown off an infantile overdependence on them. Jung cites a young man’s dream in which the man’s father appeared as a drunken driver, smashing his car into a wall. This was the exact opposite of the man’s real father, who was a most respectable person, and who was rightly—but far too greatly— respected by the son. What the unconscious was doing through the dream was dethroning the father in order to enable the son to achieve a proper sense of himself as a person in his own right, with his own unique destiny and values. So if your dreams regularly feature your parents, this may suggest that you are more dependent on them than is healthy at this stage in your life. Dreams in which your parents hurl abuse at you or behave inappropriately may therefore be trying to shock you into taking your mother or father off their pedestal so you can give yourself some much-needed emotional independence and freedom.

Whether or not your parent’s behavior in real life mirrors their behavior in its dreamland negative, reoccurring dreams about parents often raise the question of whether it is time for you to become more independent and strike out on your own, regardless of what your parents may think is best for you in waking life.

If you behaved inappropriately towards your parents in your dream, for example swearing at them, listing their faults or even murdering them, such a dream is likely to be a safety valve that enables you to let off tension that you may have been repressing in waking life. It is also likely to be an indication that you need to break free of parental control and take charge of your destiny. Finally, if an interpretation of the appearance of your mother and father still eludes you, it may be that your anima (if you are a man who dreamed of your mother) and your animus (if you are a woman who dreamed of your father) may be making an appearance; alternatively, it may be that another archetype has disguised itself as one of your parents....
