Many people have dreams in the REM stage of sleep, the last and lightest stage of sleep that we usually experience just before we wake up. For this reason, we often remember dreams and the things we dream of often bother us – especially if they are repetitive symbols. But did you know that things we see in our dreams are often symbols and can tell us something about ourselves? Here are some common objects found in dreams and their meanings:
Dreaming of doors
Dreaming of doors is common. If the door is locked in your dream, it could symbolise a closed opportunity in your life. However, an opened door is an open opportunity, and signals to you that you should seize a chance you get, whether in your career or home life.
Dreaming of flowers
Flowers symbolise a fresh beginning, and flowers that have not bloomed or opened yet indicate the early stages of that new beginning. If you dream of flowers, think about how your life is progressing and what flowers might suggest to you.
Dreaming of jewels
To dream of jewels or precious stones is a sign that there is a great blessing heading your way. This is often interpreted as a financial blessing but could indicate any kind of fortune in your life.
Dreaming of earthquakes
An earthquake is unnerving and you may be worried if you have dreamt of one recently. An earthquake symbolises a shaking that causes disruption. In a dream, an earthquake can refer to a sudden change that will occur. Think about your job – have there been any unsettling redundancies or changes recently?
Dreaming of mountains
Sitting on a mountain can suggest life accomplishment. If in the dream you are attempting to climb a mountain, this might suggest you are doing something in your life which is taking a lot time and effort. It is a good sign that you are getting somewhere with your goals.
Dreaming of smoke or fire
Smoke is the result of a fire and can be unsettling to dream of, especially if you are choking on the smoke. Smoke represents the remains of something that has burned and can refer to a situation that creates stress. So, think carefully about what your life has involved lately. Are there people in your life creating conflict? Dreaming of a fire itself can refer to a negative situation in general, whether financial, love concerned or family concerned.
Dreaming of injuries
Many people dream of getting injured in dreams but when experiencing a limp in a dream, it means something that will affect your spiritual walk. This could be good or bad, and should be interpreted individually.
