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.

CLOTHES : Clothes in dreams are symbolic of two things - the way we would like the world to see us(our preferred image) and our fears about how the world actually sees us. Poor clothes will obvious then link to our fears about how others see us in a bad way. But clothes also send subtle dream messages out about the signals we are sending out. Think especially about the day before and your image and how you wished to appear. Was that a theme at all.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Have you been trying to send out some particular signals to those around you?
- Do you worry that your image is very bad right now?
- Have you been highly impressed with someones image recently?

KEY WORDS : Signals,image

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I want to appear more ..."
- "I have got a really bad image right now"
- "sending out signals"
- "He makes you believe that he can do it..."

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 clothes in dreams?
Clothes in dreams signify two things. They firstly symbolise the way that we would like the world to see us(generally very positive). We like to see ourselves in a positive light and unconsciously send out signals about how we would like the world to see us. But clothes also represent our fears. They show us worried that the world may see us in a rather negative way - that we have a rather bad image.

Clothes can link to your own mood and the feelings within you. E.g.

"I have really got into dreams and have been trying to understand them. I never know exactly what a dream means but there is something magical about the dream world. I am on a bit of a mystical high right now"[Dream dictionary - goddess dressed in beautiful white clothes]

Clothes often link to your image right now - they will represent how the world currently sees you(either good or bad). E.g.

"I want to APPEAR in a more positive light but I am afraid that If I try to counter the gossip then they will make things worse for me"[Dream symbol - shirt made of poor materials dream]

"My boss has got a really BAD IMAGE of me right now"[Dream dictionary - tattered clothes dream]

"I am just having weird moods recently "[Dream Dictionary - weird clothes dream]

"As soon as my son was born I started to think of the HARDSHIPS that I had when I was a child and how life was difficult"[Dream Dictionary - poor clothes dream]

Clothes maybe represent your thoughts right now and the signals that you are trying to send out to people around you concerning pressing issues. E.g.

"Well I was looking forward to my girlfriend coming back but she has been ill so it may not be the perfect homecoming I hoped for "[Dream symbol - Hawaiian clothes dream]

"I do not want to send out any STRONG SIGNALS to my boyfriend without first thinking things through and being sure."[Dream Dictionary - Two shirts dream]

"I am trying to make it clear what I want right now"[Dream dictionary - brightly coloured clothes dream]

"I just really miss life as a police officer"[Dream Dictionary - police uniform dream]

Clothes do not just refer to ourselves they can also link to other people. We maybe making judgments on the image of other people. E.g.

"I have been thinking a lot about religion and actually so many of these people CLAIM to have the answer and yet they cannot all be right. I guess I am just skeptical"[Dream Dictionary - different people all wearing white clothes dream]
THE DREAM I had been walking on some sort of path with a woman dressed in vivid white, almost like a Greek Goddess would have been dressed. She had longish light brown flowing hair and she was beautiful and full of spirit. She was talking to me and though I wrote then that we talked about Diana, now I can not remember what she said, almost as if I could not hear her. I felt very warmed by her presence.

THE REALITY Lately the dreamer been on sort of a spirituality bender, learning and reading all she could. She went to bed with the clear thought in my head that she wanted some spiritual guidance and that she was ready. Her three year old son came bombarding in my room at 530 the next morning and woke her up. She was disappointed that she could not remember her dreams. But she closed her eyes and turned slightly to the side and the dream came back to her.

THE MEANING The dream captured the following feelings within the dreamer - "I have been on a spiritual journey recently and have been especially interested in dreams. Although I have not started to understand dreams in the way that I wished I do find it endlessly fascinating. Although I do not understand what the dreams truly mean I know that this is a world that is important to us. I sense the goodness in dreams and the wish to understand them"

DREAM ANALYSIS Dreams capture and reflect our emotions. So do not be surprised if you get spiritually uplifting dreams if you are currently on a spiritual high. This is clearly a spiritual dream and its definitely got a good and pure message to it. It reflects the positive feelings that the dreamer has for dreaming and spiritual issues at that time.

The words cannot be clearly heard in the dream. But the sense of goodness comes through. That perfectly captures the dreams emotions on this subject. Understanding dreams is not easy and perhaps the inability to hear what the goddess is saying is linked to her current inability to really understand how dreams work. In that sense it captures the feeling that dreams do have a positive message and meaning yet she does not truly understand them. Yet she senses the goodness in the process of dream interpreting.

Also important is Diana. Diana is the Greek god of hunting. Perhaps that is symbolic of her current interest in hunting down the meaning of her dreams.

So far from being a dream of immense significance this is a perfectly ordinary dream which captures our current mindset on some issue. Its symbols are the building blocks of the mind and when pieced together they help us see how the mind works.

Symbolic Meanings
DIANA : "the Greek goddess of hunting probably symbolises the dreamers own wish to hunt down the meaning of her dreams"
WHITE CLOTHES : "the goodness and purity of the dream world - the dreamer currently has positive feelings about dreams"
