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.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of finishing in dreams?

Finishing something in dreams shows that you maybe feel a further effort is required and you have to show a real willingness. E.g.

"I am troubled by two issues right now. I have worked night and day on a work project. It is failing though and I am not getting the support I require. I have also been thinking about this girl I like. I am really attracted to her. But I think she is a lesbian. I do not think it is wise to tell her how I feel. I cannot make up my mind" [Dream Dictionary - "I have to finish something" I cried. ]

"I have been feeling guilty about not doing something for my brother and sister twins who had a birthday last week. " [Dream Dictionary - I had just finished making a chocolate cake]

"A couple of members of my family have been ill recently. Its been a hectic burden looking after everyone"[Dream Dictionary - I look around and see a waitress that I know and hand her the bills and ask her to finish them for me]

Finishing may suggest that you are figuring how something will end. E.g.

"My fathers sister may have cancer. I was thinking last night of the emotional effects on her if this is true" [Dream Dictionary - after they were finished all she could do was stare down at what was left of her hair on the ground]

Finishing may suggest that some relationship is in its lasts stages. E.g.

"I have been arguing continually with my boyfriend. I realise what I need to do - break up with him. But I find it difficult to break up relationships. I know I am going to probably continue to be unhappy" [Dream Dictionary - we are finished]

"I had a crush on this guy for a while and last year, I did the stupid thing of giving him a note that indirectly said I liked him (ie. "I think we should talk sometime" ). We never talked after that, and it was only yesterday, I realized I had to get over him. " [Dream Dictionary - as soon as I finished the last word he hugs me and cries]

"I have just moved. People do not accept us in our new neighbourhood. They do not like our religion. We just do not fit in" [Dream Dictionary - that i was going against our agreement, that they could finish us off if they wanted to so I had better just leave or else]

Finishing suggests that one thing causes another. E.g.

"I hate my mother in law. She is nasty and I feel that my husband takes her side. If he supported me all the trouble would stop" [Dream dictionary - Even before I could finish calling out his name She just crumbled in front of me like ash. My voice just faded out]

Finishing suggests that some situation has just ended abruptly. E.g.

"I am worried about the future. My father has just died. I really do not know what will happen" [Dream Dictionary - I ran back to finish clearing under the stairs]

"I liked a guy who is two years older than me but my family hated him. they made us finish" [Dream Dictionary - he left through the unfinished room of my basement]

Finishing can link with your readinness for something. E.g.

"I think this was a premonition of the actual day of the dream. I had a surprise visit from a regional inspector. I had to impress her and make her feel important." [Dream Dictionary - Parts of my childhood house look like they are in the middle of being remodeled, but nothing is fully finished]

"I have never been able to trust men totally. I had a bad experience when I was 14. But now I feel able to trust a man totally. I want to start a relationship with a friend" [Dream Dictionary - I finish depositing the fee and now I am a student]

"I have just been promoted. I am not sure if my former coworkers are ready for me to take command" [Dream Dictionary - I had finished but could not see if everyone else was ready]

"I really want to leave my husband. There are many problems associated with leaving but it will be even worse if I stay " [Dream Dictionary - when they finished one of the ground floor apartments, i was supposed to move into it]

"smittys back problem" [Dream Dictionary - rollercoaster will be finished in less than two minutes]

" Lately I've been working my butt off from work in general. Yesterday was my day off." [Dream Dictionary - At first I thought now, not to eat the last waffle, but then I made up my mind and decided to finish it off]
