Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

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.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Have you been trying to put across some idea that you believe in?
- Do you see something as an omen or bad sign?
- Have you realised that something could very well happen? That its a real possibility?

KEY WORDS : Vision, ideas, proposals, signs, omens, premonitions, could happen

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I made a proposal"
- "My idea has not been accepted"
- "my vision of the future"
- "an omen or bad sign"
- "a premonition"
- "something that could happen"
- "it did not happen but it could easily have done"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of birds in dreams?

Sometimes it is best to think of dream symbols within a wider context. In dreams the water symbolises the unconscious mind, the land links to the facts and reality of our world while the sky symbolises the future and how things can change and alter. It is therefor associated with communication and ideas and signs and omens about the future. Birds natural home is the sky so birds are symbols of communication and ideas.

But dreams with birds in can simply link to ideas and proposals linked to every day life. E.g.

"I want my pal to know that I have romantic feelings for him. So I shall try to send some subtle HINTS out"[Dream Dictionary - bird sanctuary dream][the dream this quote refers to is featured in full complete with interpretation at the end of this article]

"I do not think that the PROPOSAL is dead. With a few minor changes its maybe a sound idea"[Dream Dictionary - birds ]

"He does argue his case well but we do have very different VISIONS of the future."[Dream Dictionary - One bird becomes two]

A bird has been linked to omens since the beginning of time. The black bird is supposed to be a bad sign. In many cases this is true. It does not mean that the dream is a premonition it just shows that you have taken something as a bad sign or good sign. E.g.

"I hope its not a bad OMEN. If I had one miscarriage then maybe other pregnancies may go the same way"[Dream Dictionary - vulture]

"That terrorist bomb happened in Madrid but it COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO US. Its a bad sign of things to come."[Dream Dictionary - 200 birds]

In many cases birds symbolise your thoughts about the future and the possibility that something may or may not happen. E.g.

"I think I have got to accept that this could fail"[Dream dictionary - vulture]

"I really made a move for her but I don't think that she shared the VISION"[Dream symbol - bird]

"my ex has turned up and is showing how loyal and devoted he is to his kids. I just do not buy it. I know he is showing us how he has turned over this new leaf but I don't believe it." [Dream Dictionary - 2 birds]

"I do not know if I am reading the signals right. She seems a bit aloof but I hope its not because of me. I wonder if Its a bad SIGN for the future"[Dream symbol - two birds]

"well I thought I was going down in his estimation but now I take that as a SIGN that things may get better from now on"[Dream Dictionary - bird ]
DREAM TIP : The link between dreams and thoughts alive in your mind is really very strong. Birds are known to link with ideas, proposals, omens, premonitions, and visions of the future. So look for ideas that were mentioned yesterday. Look for omens and bad signs. Look for ways in which you have been thinking about the future and the possibility of change. Then if you establish a link with one issue then its likely that the dream is about that topic alone.
THE DREAM In real life i am interested in a guy who also happens to be my best pal(I'll call him Andy). So me and Andy are studying science (zoology) in college. Our professor announces that we all have to start working on projects, the theme would be related to zoology for which we would be taken out of town to explore for our projects and everyone would be working in pairs. The professor made all the pairs for working on projects, my female friend just tells me that she is happy to be paired up with her crush(about which no one had any idea). Then I just tell her that I wish that someone good would be my partner in my project(wasn't even thinking about Andy at that moment). The professor comes to me and says," where have you been, I've been looking all over for you now your partner for project is(before he would announce Andy enters)him, you two are going to be together in it, best of luck." I just smiled and he too seemed to be happy to be with me. I tell him about the details of the project and theme(birds). I told him that first we will visit the bird sanctury and then find a good book, take photographs and tally it all.To all this he said,"wow, so you really had all these details worked out in advance. Ok, lets get started." And he is happy to go with the flow.

THE REALITY The dreamer is quite interested in the guy in the dream. He is also a best pal. But she was not sure exactly how to express her feelings.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have got to think this through carefully. I do not want to embarrass myself by expressing my undying love for him. Yet I do want to send out some subtle hints that I am interested. Then when he understands that he can make his own choice."

DREAM ANALYSIS If the land symbolises the facts about our lives then the sky is represents the future and the possibility of change. In real life the dreamer was feeling romantic feelings for the guy in the dream. She indeed was thinking about send some subtle hints out. Thats probably what these birds represent in this dream. Notice too that this is a bird sanctuary. Thats perhaps got a subtle symbolic meaning. If birds represent ideas and visions of the future then surely a bird sanctuary links to a wish for people to express freely and openly any thoughts they have. In this case it represents the dreamers wish to show openly and honestly some feelings for this guy. Yet she does not want to make a fool of herself. So this is about a mature exploration of her feelings and his.
