DREAM DICTIONARY - Birds :Birds are often seen as symbols of the future and as bad omens. That is true in some respects but they are symbols of so much more. Yes birds can be seen as symbols of premonitions but they also link to the future in other ways. They can be symbols simply of ideas and proposals for the future. That may include an idea at work you have put forward. In a wider sense birds symbolise your own vision of the future. They can also simply link to the possibility of change and usually some specific change.

EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream about a bird which is allowed to fly away but chooses to stay linked to the dreamers thoughts about the relationship that she walked out on. The bird symbolised the freedom to choose and her own decision to walk out ('fly away') on her partner and child. The bird then translated into the word "freedom" in the following context "I have been thinking about what I did. I left my family and children. Everyone has this freedom but most stay."
Example dream : A bird dream took place as the dreamer was thinking about a proposal he had made at work. He felt that this idea needed a few alterations. It had been rejected but he just felt it needed minor changes.
