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.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of rain in dreams?

Often rain is associated with a temporary bad mood. It may link to frustrations and unsettled feelings. If you had a bad day on the day before the dream then it may link to that. E.g.

"I got in a mood yesterday. I have been trying so hard at work. But my efforts are not being rewarded. People do not listen to what I say and do. "[Dream Dictionary - Rain and flooding][Dream Dictionary - the full dream on which this quote is based is featured at the end of this article]

"things have not been going well recently and I think the future is not looking too bright as things stand"[Dream Dictionary - raining]

"it was a really bad day and I really should not have got out of bed"[Dream symbol - rain]

"I visited my friend yesterday and she did not seem too happy"[Dream symbol - raining heavily]

"things did not go well for me yesterday. I did not get the job I applied for"[Dream Dictionary - rain]

Rain often links to your lack of clear direction in life especially if you are unsure about relationships or career path. E.g.

"I am a little unsure about myself right now. Before I knew what I wanted to do if life but right now I feel UNSETTLED"[Dream Dictionary - rain ]

"If I move to Houston I will miss all my friends in Dallas. Thats a big change and quite unsettling in someway. Its part of my life. "[Dream symbol - Rain]

"I am trying to work out how I feel on something but cannot seem to make up my mind"[Dream Dictionary - raining fish]

Rain can often link to situations where confrontation and arguments have taken place. E.g.

"She actually has made a complaint so that has just upset things"[Dream symbol - rain]

"I feel it is difficult to work under these conditions. My client is angry with me. It is all UNSETTLING"[Dream Dictionary - rain]

Occasionally rain can link to real rain or something that is very similar. E.g.

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 am near to my childhood home. It has been raining. There appears to be a speed bump at one end of the street. The street seems to be a dead end. It seems to be partially flooded.

THE REALITY On the day before the dreamer was feeling a bit drained. She had been trying very hard at work. She had made a real effort. But the projects she was involved with were not been recognised properly. People did not listen to what she said and she felt as if she it was all a bit pointless. It was a like a dead end.

DREAM ANALYSIS Rain can often link to unsettled feelings within you. Just try to trace back to the source of that unsettled feeling. In this case the dreamer knew exactly what it was as the day before the dream she felt very unsettled.

Often neighborhoods can be symbolic. The nearer you are close to home the better. Here the dreamer is near the edge of the housing estate where she grew up. They can be consistent with you feeling a bit out of sorts.

The dead end is a quite simple symbol in that it captures the dreamers current feelings in that the work she does is a bit pointless - its like she has come up against a dead end.

Symbolic Meanings
DEAD END : "the dreamer feels that her attempts tp put across her ideas at work were pointless "
FLOOD : "the little frustrations and unsettled feelings have built up "
RAIN : "the dreamer feels a little upset and unsettled"
SPEED BUMP : "this stops things moving quickly"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have been trying to put across my ideas at work but I feel drained emotionally. Its all a bit pointless "
