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.

SNOW : Often its important to note the emotions you feel in a dream. If the snow seems to have a fresh and wonderful feel to it it may link to some new situation in your life. Perhaps you are thinking about as new job or something like that. But snow can associate with lots of things such as coldness and Christmas. One main meaning of snow is the link with delays and problems in general. Snow hinders momentum and may symbolise a lack of real momentum in a relationship or within you yourself after an illness.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Have you had to suffer lots of delays and feel lack there is a total lack of progress in some way?
- Did the fresh new snowfallmatch some fresh new start in your life?
- Did you wake up cold in bed?
- Have you just been ill and still not recovered?

KEY WORDS : Cold, Christmas, delays, fresh, lack of momentum

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I am cold"
- "lack of momentum"
- "delays"
- "a new start"
- "christmas"
- "not recovered from illness"

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 cold in dreams?

Snow is related to the cold and often links with delays and problems in the same way that snow causes delays. E.g.

"I have just received a camera but it did not have the film with it so I couldn't use it . It was really frustrating as I wanted to get moving"[Dream symbol - snow]

"I had a really bad day yesterday and it seemed as if nothing would go right"[Dream Dictionary - snow on ground]

Snow can be related to relationships which are in difficulty. E.g.

"My marriage has broken down but I still believe it will get moving eventually"[Dream symbol - walking on snow] [the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I was thinking about my manager yesterday and how I do not get along with her all that well"[Dream Dictionary - snow]

Maybe coldness can also refer to something that you just do not want to do. E.g.

"I do not want to be temporary manager as I am not properly trained with computers and find it difficult doing the PDA. I am having to do the job even though I don't really want to do it"[Dream Dictionary - cold]

Snow can be associated with illness and sickness. Snow slows you down and makes activity difficult. If you have recently been ill it maybe linked to that. E.g.

"I had flu two weeks ago and its taking my body some time to recover. I still do not feel totally recovered"[Dream Dictionary - bump into pile of snow]

Snow is associated with the cold so it maybe linked to coldness and feelings cold physically. E.g.

"I woke up and it was really cold in bed"[Dream Dictionary - snow]

Of course many people associate snow with Christmas so it maybe is linked to some thoughts connected with Christmas. E.g.

"Christmas is coming and I need to get started making my preparations"[Dream symbol - snow]

Snow can link with fresh and new opportunities. If the snow is unspoiled that is especially the case. E.g.

"I am going to china soon with my dads business and its great opportunity. Its approaching faster than I thought and I will be there soon"[Dream symbol - snow]

"I am desperate to get a job I have applied for"[Dream Dictionary - beautiful snow scene]
DREAM TIP : Try to think of dream symbols as words. Think of snow in dreams as representing the phrase "delays and frustrations". Then try to write down a few quotes that capture how you feel about long term and important issues in your life. Then write down several quotes which capture your feelings about anything that happened the previous day. Add some thoughts about any worries you may have about the day of the dream. Think of things like "My back was hurting yesterday. I really couldn't move in the way I wanted", or "I am thinking about buying a new car", or "I am worried about my friend. She seems a little strange in her mood. I wonder if something is wrong". Now look through those quotes again and see where the phrase "delays and frustrations" seems in the slightest bit relevant.
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 started out in this house, a fairly large house, with a stone patio on a flat surface. This was something that I have never seen before, something European like, but I have not been there. My friend Derek, he was with me, and over the patio was this garden. But not just any garden, a garden with stone pillars and vines and arch ways and such.

Over on a small hill, but in the yard, was this unknown building. Derek wanted to go there, and insisted that we take a look. We were on our way to a show of some sort, so I told him to wait for later. He still insisted to look, but when we got there, it was no bigger than a childs toy and it was a court house, with a judge an jury thing. (No people) then, I walked to the show, and when in this brown building. I appeared in what was a brown cardboard box, and I started to paint in it, (it was big enough to lay down) I painted a night sky with stars and evergreen trees. It was a winter scene and the painting started to become alive. I was walking on snow, and I could look at the stars, (but there were still sides to the box so it wasn't an open area). I had this mission to paint snow on the needles of the tree and such. So I lay down, and start painting the sky purples and black and oranges to make it more, vibrant.

Then I was whisked away and I was in the brown building again, I ran up some escalator, and in my dream I felt a male presence. I made my way up this escalator, and at the top, someone said "chopped in half" and then this woman (contentedly) was making her way up the escalator, and in my dream I knew when she reached the top she was going to get grinded by the teeth of the stairs and just get bloody mangled in it. I was oddly excited in my dream and I wanted to see blood and hear her scream (I have no hate toward anyone really no its not like I wanted anyone to die in real life) but 2 seconds, before she reached the top, homer simpson appeared beside me, and said "chopped in half" and then JUST before the presumed bloody mess, my friend Sam woke me up and told me it was time to get ready for the day. Very strange, and I am still very eager to see this horror show. I wasn't scared in my dream, I was oddly patiently awaiting this woman to die.

THE REALITY The dreamer had recently spilt from her husband of many years. But she was unwilling to let go - she believed that he would eventually come back. She was prepared to wait for him even though the prospect's did not look good at the time. She truly believes that her love will last forever.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I know I have split from my husband but I feel that eventually we will get back together. I know we are meant for each other."

DREAM ANALYSIS Well the dreamer clearly had very strong feelings on her mind. In such circumstances it is often best to see those feelings as a possible cause of the dream and look for evidence in the symbols of those feelings.

The dream features foreign lands and that clearly links to reality as the dreamer is clearly in new and unknown territory. Its fairly unfamiliar ground.

The dream starts off in a large house - huge houses often link to the outside world and how it is affecting the dreamer. In this case the most obvious person to be affecting the dreamer is the opinions of her husband and his belief that she needs to accept that the marriage is over.

Gardens are symbolic of strong new feelings that are growing and taking root in our lives. Perhaps this symbolises the belief that the marriage was not over that was keeping the dreamer going. The archways are symbols of support and that too would link in nicely with reality. The feelings - though in many peoples eyes unrealistic - were strengthening and supporting her.

Brown is a color which links to reality and a need to be practical. The brown building therefor maybe links to a need to be practical and realistic. The dreamer is been led here by her friend - possibly showing her that this is in her own best interests.

But within all these symbols of reality the dreamer is also looking to the future. The picturing of the nights sky shows how the dreamer is seeing the future. The sky often links to the future( the land symbolises day to day reality whilst the sky links to the future and things which are not settled). So the picture of the nights sky shows the dreamers feelings of the future. The snow symbolises the present state of her relationship - its hard times. The evergreen trees though can link to the resilience of her feelings. Evergreen trees can symbolise the ever lasting nature of her love.

Then the brown building appears again. That shows that practical reality is constantly invading her thoughts and bringing her down to reality. She is constantly been faced with the truth about her relationship at present.
