DREAM DICTIONARY - Touch :Touching in dreams can have all sorts of meanings. Obviously sexual touching could represent sexual feelings and so if you are aroused at the time of the dream then the dream could be about that.
If the touching is caring and compassionate then try to think of a caring compassionate moment or feeling. It could be that someone has just show you their caring side? Maybe someone has brought out your caring emotions. It might just be that something emotionally quite touching has just made you feel better. Think of a phrase like "I was touched by his innocence". Your dream could have been caused by some similar theme.
If we touch something then it helps bring it to life. If you have become especially interested in something very spiritual or abstract then touching in a dream may show how this has been brought to life inside you. Maybe you have really taken an idea to heart. Think of a phrase like "I was touched by his religious beliefs" meaning they were brought to life and made to seem very relevant.
