Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook   DREAM DICTIONARY: This dream dictionary makes the claim that it is better than any other. Why? It works on the assumption that if something very big and important happens the day before then you will surely dream about it. This dictionary collects together such dreams and has meticulously studied their meanings. Try to study the definitions and questions below and see how they relate to real life right now.

GARDENS : Gardens link to ideas , habits, relationships that are growing on us and becoming deeply meaningful. So the state of the garden is important. An green garden suggests you are growing and interested in life at present. A sparse garden with little growth suggests that close relationships mean nothing much to you, or that you have become disinterested in life right now. Try and relate the dream to new feelings coming out from your mind. So if you were spiritually emnlightened the night before and felt a surge of energy and interest it will relate to that.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Have you been growing or developing in new ways recently?
- What habits(good and bad) are florishing at the moment ?
- Have you been trying to encourage some new way of thinking or behaving?

KEY WORDS :Growth, new habits, learning, develop, florishing, teach

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "plant some ideas"
- "growing as a person"
- "learning so much"
- "new bad habits"
- "developing in new ways"
- "flourishing"

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 gardens in dreams?

The land in dreams symbolises the facts about our life such as relationships and job and life in general. Growth within the garden shows that something is extremely meaningful or growing in importance in our life.

Gardens symbolise ways in which we are growing as people. E.g.

"My friend had broken up with her boyfriend again. I want to make her feel better but also want to PLANT SOME IDEAS in her mind and help her stick up for herself a bit more"[Dream Dictionary - look into garden][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

But do not assume that gardens link to us automatically growing. The dream maybe making some point about your lack of growth recently or how you feel overloaded. E.g.

"I am trying to learn so much and GROW in so many ways but I feel overloaded right now"[Dream Dictionary - flooded garden]

Dreams are not fussy though. Gardens will often symbolise ways in which we are developing new bad habits. E.g.

"My friend is getting into some BAD HABITS and I think it will cause problems"[Dream Dictionary - friends creepy gardener]

"Well my son maybe moving back in but I am setting down some ground rules. I don't want this to DEVELOP in ways which allow me to lose control. "[Dream symbol - Neighbours garden]

A huge garden or mansion garden shows that we are trying to influence others in their developments or others have been trying to influence us.

"I want to decide what my best approach is. Its really important that I get it right. I want to help people understand my teachings"[Dream symbol - whitehouse garden]

"I want to FLOURISH as a person and help teach the kids yet I am not sure if its working right now"[Dream Dictionary - mansion garden]

"She keeps trying to get me to open up and talk but I like to keep my problems to myself"[Dream Dictionary - hiding in country mansion garden]

Some dreams simply make a point about a situation from the day before. E.g..

"Well it was a dangerous situation yet I helped defuse it with a bit of dark humor"[Dream Dictionary - garden]
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 had a beautiful dream. I was looking through the window, from my bedroom in my former house. It was night, and I saw a garden outside... well, it was only the shadows of bushes and trees since it was dark outside, but they were covered with glimmering red flowers that shone beautifully through the garden. I found out I was able to make more flowers shine at my will, these ones were green light green flowers and I was having fun making them "turn on and off" and seeing how beautiful the garden was.

THE REALITY The night before dreamer had to comfort her best friend because his girlfriend broke up again. The dreamer was trying to cheer up the friend but also be sincere about his girlfriend who was playing around with him. It was a tough but fair approach. She was trying to tell her friend that his girlfriend needed to be sorted out. If they were to get back together again she would have to be made to change her ways and stop playing with his feelings.

DREAM ANALYSIS This dream seems to relate to thoughts about how the dreamer had had to console her friend about a relationship breakup. Gardens are often symbols of romance and so that definitely relates to this dream. The main connection was the way the dreamer was employing a strategy - it involved being tough yet also was a way of consoling the friend. In the dream that mimics the way flowers shine off and on.

Shining and glimmering often links to looking on the bright side and being optimistic. That is a direct link to the way the dreamer was trying to make the friend feel optimistic.

Quite often emotions are complex. In this case the dreamer had a complex strategy for helping her friend. It was tough but also caring. If a person has a dual approach then it maybe portrayed in a slightly odd way. The dream maybe even refers to the on and off nature of the friends relationship.

Symbolic Meanings
BED : "a personal symbol - the dreamer is addressing her friends personal habits and tendencies"
DARK : "in the dark about the future"
GARDEN : "helping her friend grow from the experience"
NIGHT : "not seeing your current situation clearly"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "My best friend has broken up with his girlfriend again. I tried to comfort him but also tried to help him learn and grow from the experience".
