Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook ADVERTS/BILLBOARDS : Adverts have both a negative and a positive meaning. In real life we use advertising to sell and promote something. So think of those things that you are trying advertise in your own life. In a negative sense adverting is often false and makes claims that cannot be backed up in reality. Could it be that someone is making claims about themselves that cannot be substantiated in fact?

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Has someone telling you a pack of exaggerated lies?
- Have you been trying to oversell yourself?
- Do you need to promote your abilities more forcefully?

KEY WORDS : Boasting, promoting, exaggerating, overselling, lies

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "it may all be total lies"
- "its a claim that has to be taken with a pinch of salt"
- "overselling yourself"
- "boasting"
- "how good would that be!"
- "I need to promote my own abilities more forcefully"

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of adverts in dreams?

Adverts can often be linked to the need to promote your own qualities. E.g.

"I am currently looking for a job. I think I have got to be more forceful in saying that I can do a job even though I may not have the exact skills required. Its all about belief"[Dream symbol - banner][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

Often adverts and billboards can suggest that you are looking at something very cautiously. Maybe something has been made to sound too good. Adverts link to people who overstate their own abilities and qualities. They may suggest that you cannot always trust what they say. E.g.

"I am dating a guy on line from England. But I have got to take what he says with a pinch of salt. He maybe anything"[Dream symbol - billboard dream]

The advert may also be a symbol about yourself. It may suggest that you need to have more substance and less image. E.g.

"I need to have more substance as a person. I tend to overstate my qualities"[Dream symbol - advertising hoarding]

Adverts can be associated with the wish to advertise just how much and how appealing something could be. E.g.

"My friend is over from Australia and I want to meet her. I would just like to talk to her so I could tell her how great it would be to see her"[Dream symbol - harry potter advert dream]
-----------------------
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.

THE DREAM I was at work and had a fight with some people. The argument was work related and has something to do with how things should be done. My colleagues were so angry with me that they threatened to report me to higher management.

True enough, after a few hours, the president called for me. When I stepped into the president’s office, I quickly noticed that he looked like my ex-boss (the first company I worked for about 10 years ago, he was the president of that company too). I was ready for some confrontation as I thought that my colleagues connived against me, but instead I was received by him with a huge grin. He then handed me two small rectangle boxes that looked like some sort of oversized video cases, saying, “I am offering you a job to do the BANNER.” And inside those two small rectangle boxes were supposedly several items that I have no clue about and some keys.

The job description is leading a team supporting speed boat racing. I will be managing people, the day to day activities, the logistics and etceteras behind the speed boat racing team. We are also expected to travel all over the world with it.

THE REALITY The dreamer was without a job at the time but actively seeking employment. She was building up some momentum in searching for jobs. She was active on the job boards. This ex-boss president of the company she worked for 10 years ago gave her a break. He believed in her despite her lack of experience and skills in the work he offered her.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I am looking for a job at present. Its important to build up a sense of momentum. I am trying to show that I can do jobs that I have no technical experience for."

THE INTERPRETATION We often get dreams about our strategy and feelings towards something. Work tasks that involve emotions are especially so. If we are unemployed then we may get dreams related to our efforts to find a job. In this case the ex-boss was someone who meant something very specific. He was someone who believed in her. Its likely then that the dreamer is reminding herself of her skills and achievements and reinforcing her own belief in herself. In particular she needs to have confidence in herself going after jobs she has not got the exact skill requirements.

The other dreams also link to her strategy and attempts to find work. The banner is a symbol of the need to advertise and promote her own abilities.

Boats in dreams are symbols of emotional momentum. Whilst unemployed its easy to become downbeat about yourself. A speedboat symbolises a very excited and enthused sense of journey within the dreamer. It probably captures this feeling - "if I get some enthusiasm going it will help me build up my own confidence. Confidence is so important. So if I throw myself into the attempts to find work it creates a mood of belief which all helps convince a potential employer."

Symbolic Meanings
BANNER : "a need to advertise and promote your own skills"
EX -PRESIDENT : "a need to have the same belief in herself that he had in her"
SPEED BOAT : "a need to build up a sense of momentum and excitement. Creating a buzz helps improve her own confidence in herself"
