Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary makes the claim that it is better than any other. Why? 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.

COLLEGES : Often colleges and universities can be about the things we think about before going to bed. They represent issues which we have developed an educated and considered opinion after long and serious thought. Think about the personal issues and the books and ideas that have stimulated your own personal thoughts. Of course if you are presently attending a university it is very possibly just symbolic of some issue regarding your life there.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Is college a place where lots of things happen in your life?
- Have you come to a very well thought out opinion on some matter?
- Have you been trying to put across your own expert opinion on some matter?

KEY WORDS : Interesting subject, my college, my opinion, clarifying

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "its really starting to interest me"
- "I think I definitely know what is happening now"
- "I had a good think about it last night "
- "I have my own ideas on this"
- "I feel my opinion is worth listening too"
- "yesterday at college"

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 colleges in dreams?
Universities are places of serious study and learning. In dreams they refer not so much to academic study but to general issues. They show we are thinking very seriously. We are all members of the university of life. A university dream is usually quite positive unlike school dreams which will often emphasize a recent failure.

Universities often can link to something you have been reading. The university shows you have studied the book and come up with some conclusion. E.g.

"This book I have been reading is really starting to interest me. I have really seen how it relates to me and my life" [Dream Dictionary - university dream]

Universities also refer to lots of issues. If you have thought long and hard on any issue and come to some very considered conclusions then the university represents your thoughts and learning. E.g.

" I have been thinking about CVs a lot recently. I find them so worthless because they are so easy to fake." [Dream Dictionary - University professor dream]

"I think I know why they don't like me. Its because I have new ideas and they are stuck in the past. So when I try to engage them Its like hitting a brick wall" [Dream Dictionary - university dream]

"I have been thinking long and hard about this and I think the best thing to cure my wifes illness is a little holiday " [Dream Dictionary - university dream]

"This holiday have given me time to have a good think about things at work and how to improve my general approach to matters "[Dream Dictionary - university teacher dream]

Of course universities can represent your experiences at university or adjusting back to life outside university. E.g.

"Since I came back from college its been difficult to live at my parents house again" [Dream Dictionary - best friend at college dream ]

College dreams can link to some newly aquired skills or studies. E.g.

"I have learnt so much with my reseach project at work. I am proud of the report I wrote."[Dream Dictionary - in a college][the dream which this quote is based upon is featured in full at the end of this article]

SAMPLE DREAM
---------------------------
THE DREAM I was in a college somewhere. I was reading a book and said that this was a good book. I was wanting to go to the staircase and stand where all the girls would see me with my new baby. I then was involved in a fight with a man. I said that I was not going to fight him.

The book in the dream reminded me of my report I have written at work. It is the culmination of several months intense research. The report was written in a similar font and layout style.

THE REALITY The dreamer had just completed a major work project. He felt the ideas in his research were good ones. He was pleased with himself and wanted to show off his skill and knowledge. He had also put in a lot of effort frequently and wanted to slow the pace down.

THE INTERPRETATION Colleges and books can link to the dreamers own work and the learning he has put in towards this. He was pleased with his finding and was emotionally attached to his results. We often describe a work project as "our baby" and in this case this was something that hew had takengreat care with.

The fight at the end shows that the dreamer was not willing to engage in a struggle now. He felt he had put in a lot of effort at work and wanted to take things at a little more of a sedate pace.

In the dream the dreamer felt the book reminded him of his report at work and the research he had carried out. Such an association really clinches the dreams meaning. These associations do not happen by chance. The dream was definitely about his work project and his feelings about its finish.

Symbolic Meanings
BABY : "the dreamer had become emotionally attached to his work project and took great care with it - it was "His BABY" "
BOOK : "the dreamers own work and work project - well thought out "
COLLEGE : "the dreamer feels he has improved his own knowledge at work"
FIGHT : "The dreamer turns down the fight "
IMPRESS THE GIRLS : "the dreamer feels proud of his efforts and wants to show off his new skills "

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I pleased with the research I did at work. I feel proud of myself and want to show off my newly acquired knowledge. I also want to slow down a little as the work has put a strain on me. "

See how the Symbolic Meanings above weave together to form a key insight in the DREAM MEANING
