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.

SKYSCRAPERS : Skyscrapers are quite difficult symbols to understand in a simple way. They can refer to many things in dreams. In short they show how good or bad you feel about something. But they can also link to issues of confidence and the higher you are up a building then the more confident or able you feel.

The main problem with skyscrapers is knowing what they are referring to. They could be a symbol of confidence but could easily be symbolic of other peoples confidence in us. They are two slightly different things. They could also be symbolic of belief in yourself but may also be symbolic of your actual measurable abilities. Its often difficult to pinpoint exactly what they mean.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Did you have to face a major test of your abilities yesterday?
- Are you going to have to face some major test on the actual day of your dream?
- Could the dream be a premonition of some testing situation on the actual day of the dream?
- Are you lacking in confidence right now?
- Have people made you feel especially confident and good about yourself right now?
- Are you wanting to prove your skills and abilities?

KEY WORDS :Proving or failing, confidence, testing, feeling good or bad, demanding respect(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words could appear in those quotes)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I have been feeling so good about it"
- "I need to show how able I am "
- "It is about confidence"
- "A chance to prove my abilities"
- "I demand respect"
- "I need to show how strong I am"
- "I feel lacking in confidence"
- "they made me feel so good about it"

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of skyscrapers in dreams?
Skyscrapers are quite tricky symbols in dreams. In a general sense they can link to how good or bad we feel about something. It may link to many emotions which are very changeable such as confidence and belief.

Skyscrapers can simply capture how you feel good or bad about something. E.g.

"I just recently have converted to Digital TV. It has been great but yesterday was a major disappointment. With 15 channels to choose from I still could not find anything to watch all evening"[Dream Dictionary - skyscraper in ruins][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

Sometimes tall buildings can symbolise a situation where we feel tested. Maybe we are meeting people whom we feel are superior to us. E.g.

"I hate this situation. I am not confident in front of people. I know my fear is obvious" [Dream Dictionary - scared of heights on top floor]

"I know this studying may seem pointless at times but I know its for the best and it will improve my EXPERTISE and CONFIDENCE when I am qualified" [Dream symbol - top floor]

"I thought it was going to be such a great day but now I feel totally deflated and lacking in confidence. I thought I would be given a chance to prove my ABILITIES." [Dream Dictionary - College in skyscraper]

"I feel so alone now. I have been trying to cut myself off from people" [Dream Dictionary - fighting aliens at top of skyscraper]

Often skyscrapers are symbolic of a wish for respect and an ability to stand up to others. E.g.

"I just had to make a stand and demand more RESPECT from my husband" [Dream symbol - Tall building - town hall ]

" I need to stand up to those building contractors and insist they do the work. I will show them how CONFIDENT and INSISTENT I can be" [Dream dictionary - locked in top floor]

In some cases skyscrapers may symbolise the quality of your work or a high standard that you hope to live up to. E.g.

"I want to maintain the quality of my work but whilst I am concentrating on the changes I know standards will suffer"[Dream Dictionary - come down elevator shaft in helicopter]

Often skyscrapers symbolise the respect that people have for us. E.g.

" I feel ELATED by becoming pregnant. All the other women made me feel special and complete"[Dream Dictionary - skyscraper]

"Everyone says that this is an ability I should feel proud of yet yet I think its a curse. I hate being psychic. Its something I would happily give up." [Dream Dictionary - Jump off top floor]

"I just want a bit of ENCOURAGEMENT from the people around me. I feel a little lost. " [Dream Dictionary - Wandering in skyscraper]

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 in the ruins of a tall building. There is some of the cast from the TV comedy "Friends" there. I make a judgement about Joey based on his character. He is an immensely stupid character who is an actor in the comedy. I then realise that actually he is the one with the most money. I then go about scaling the walls of this skyscraper.

THE REALITY The previous night the dreamer had watched "Friends" for a short while and thought how pointless and worthless a night on TV it was. The dreamer was a new convert to digital TV and this was the first nights watching that he did not enjoy.

DREAM ANALYSIS Dreams can feature strange subject matters. They often capture things from the previous day. Sometimes those thoughts can be on quite banal subjects. In dreams it is important to make associations and in this case the dream featured "Friends" - the TV Comedy. The only thing that came to mind to the dreamer was the previous night. He had watched it and thought - "Oh no its another of those endless repeats of Friends".

Dreams usually capture some thought forming in our minds. When the dreamer watched a few seconds of "Friends" it was the low point of a very dull evening watching TV. Since he had converted to digital TV he had many new channels to choose from. On this evening he could not find anything to watch at all.

In the dream there is evidence of those thoughts. Skyscrapers in dreams can symbolise things that we feel good about. They can here capture the positive thoughts the dreamer felt about TV in that the building is a skyscraper. Yet it is a ruin showing that those previously good feelings have now been ruined and fallen apart. Overall the dream did capture an important feeling within the dreamer - "up until now digital TV has always provided something worth watching. But today I was quite deflated. Watching the repeat of "Friends" was the final straw."

Symbolic Meanings
RUINS : "something is a total disaster"
