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".

Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of vans in dreams?

Vans may symbolise something that you are taking very seriously. E.g.

"I am facing my works assessment tomorrow and for some reason I am extremely worried. But its probably misplaced worries as I should be in no danger"[Dream symbol - van][Dream Dictionary - the full dream upon which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I know if my friend finds out about the party she will be angry that she is not invited. But I sure that she would not enjoy a book reading discussion"[Dream symbol - monster truck]

"My niece was in such a state after her accident. It was so serious"[Dream symbol - rushing around with niece in van]

"I know this guy and he has just found out that I fancy him."[Dream symbol - Guy I fancy is driving truck]

"I started off wanting to be serious but then got caught by the holiday mood"[Dream Dictionary - father in truck]

"I have just got engaged. I am about to show my fiancee to my grandma but I am scared about it because she is always so rude."[Dream dictionary - driving large semi truck]

A van may symbolise a heavy workload. E.g.

"I have got so much to do. It maybe a really heavy workload tomorrow"[Dream symbol - articulated lorry going round corner]

Vans can symbolise how you feel heavy and tired out. E.g.

"My illness was made worse. I felt quite heavy and tired"[Dream symbol - van travels north]

Vans are also a method of transport so if you are awaiting some parcel then it maybe quite a literal symbol for transportation of goods. E.g.

"Now I have got to wait for the parcel to be transported all the way here."[Dream Dictionary - Van]

THE DREAM I am crossing the road towards the police station. I am worried that a driver is coming straight towards me. He is in a heavy truck and if it ran over me then I would be totally squashed. But all the fears were in my head as the van just goes straight by me. I remember thinking in the dream that my fears were exaggerated as the driver would have had to veer off the road onto the pavement to hit me.

THE REALITY The dreamer was facing a works assessment the next day. This was something that occasionally happened. During the night the dreamer started to worry about this and the next dream was linked to these worries.

DREAM ANALYSIS Dreams are about the thoughts in our heads. Often if we wake up in the middle of the night then we may have dreams about thoughts on our minds during that time period. In this case the dreamer was worried about a works assessment the next day. The van symbolised the extreme importance of this assessment. But the van does not hit him and indeed the dreamers admits that his fears of being hit by the van were exaggerated. Why should the van hit him as the van was on the road and would have had to veer off onto the pavement. This then shows that the works assessment was something that the dreamer was worrying unnecessarily about.

Vans can often symbolise serious and important issues in our minds. The police probably represent the need to follow the rules at work.

Its a fair assumption to make that the dream does link with this subject as the most immediate and recognizable fear at that moment was related to the works assessment. Dreams will often represent these immediate fears and the dream does seem to capture the dreamers exact emotions at that moment that "I am facing an assessment tomorrow and I am very worried about ti for some strange reason. I have no real reason to fear this though".

Symbolic Meanings
POLICE : "people in control who make the rules"
RUN OVER : "a fear that the works assessor will make some serious criticisms"
VAN : "a very serious and important issue - taking something very seriously - in this case the assessment at work"
