2. A general satisfaction with life. ... New American Dream Dictionary
Dreaming of material wealth provokes a very nice and pleasant feeling but this kind of oneiric image should be taken with due precaution. The temporal possession could lead you into think that it is permanent and will last forever. However, as is widely known, that is not the case. Judeo-Christian tradition clearly understands this as Joseph explains the dream of seven fat cows and seven gaunt ones (the parable symbolizes the alternation between prosperity and poverty). Ultimately, this kind of dream could be reminding us we must not get used to any particular condition of abundance because chances are high it will evolve into a period of famine.
This dream provides a false certainty, an external abundance that, in fact, only hides misery. In case such fortune is shared with a friend, it is a happy prediction of achievement, satisfaction, and joy.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

If you burned yourself, have you got too close to the flames emotionally? Dreams in which you are burned alive or someone else is torched suggest the need for some kind of drastic change in your life. Rashes, sores and eczema are all unpleasant ailments that are not serious but uncomfortable as well as embarrassing. So if these conditions appear in a dream, what are you feeling ’sore,’ uncomfortable or embarrassed about? Although it may seem a big deal to you, your dream is telling you that you have no need to feel anxious as the situation is not as serious as you might think. The skin is a symbol of how you present yourself in public, so rashes are recognized as one of the most clearly psychosomatic disorders. In dreams, therefore, a skin rash can express lack of confidence in your ability to face the world. A dream bruise may reflect some emotional hurt or emerging health problem, whilst scars can carry their figurative sense of hurtful memories and suggest an awareness that emotional healing takes time.
For Jewish or Christian dreamers, boils may express feelings of guilt for how they have behaved towards someone in their waking life; this is because in the Bible, boils were the sixth of the ten plagues visited by God on the Egyptians to force Pharaoh to free the Israelites. Rough skin suggests a rough exterior, whilst burnt skin might indicate hurt in a relationship with the outside world or people.
If you are shedding skin like a snake, you are changing your way of life and leaving old attitudes behind. Spots and blemishes represent your sense of not being good enough in some way, and a feeling that other people see you as unattractive or see failings in you; they can also indicate shyness and the difficulties you experience being in the company of others....

If it is in ruins it indicates suffering because of your image. You need to do things that make you feel better. On the other hand, it could also refer to your physical condition.

The features of the building mirror the features of the dreamer’s personality. Buildings in dreams can become composite, and therefore confusing. In understanding the dream, we should interpret the main appearance of the building first, as its main function, and the secondary appearance as qualities to be recognised. Various buildings have distinct meanings:
Boarding house or Hotel - also see individual entry in
To dream of a boarding house or hotel indicates that we may not feci secure within our living conditions.
Castle, Fortress, Citadel
The symbolism of the castlc or fortress is that of the defended spacc and therefore can be taken to represent the feminine or the Great Mother.
In dreams, the courtyard is a place of safety and often the shape will be relevant (see Shapes).
Church, temple etc. also see Church Buildings in C and Church in Religious Imagery As an environment for us to consider our system of belief, any religious building will suggest a place of sanctuary and refuge. Although we may not consciously adhere to any particular religion, most of us have principles by which we live, which will surface in dreams in recognisable images.
If we are aware that the house is not empty - that there is something in it (e.g. furnishings) it shows some aspect of the dreamer. Someone else in the house suggests that the dreamer may be feeling threatened by an aspect of his own personality.
If there are different activities going on it indicates there is a conflict between two parts of our personality, possibly the creative and the intellectual.
The front of the house portrays the front we show to the outside world.
Going into/out of the house
We may- have to decide whether we need at that time to be more introverted or more extroverted.
An impressive, awe-inspiring house In a dream like this we are conscious of the Self or the Soul.
Moving to a larger house
There is need for a change in our lives, perhaps to achieve a more open way of life, or even for more space. Being outside the house The more public side of ourselves is being depicted.
A small house, or the house where the dreamer was born
The dreamer is seeking security, or perhaps the safety of babyhood, without responsibility.
If the smallness of the house is constricting
We are being trapped by our responsibilities, and may need to escape.
Work on the house; cementing, repairing, etc.
Relationships may need to be worked on or repaired, or perhaps we need to look at health matters. We may need to take note of the damage or decay that has occurred in our lives.
Igloo - also see individual entry Because of its shape, the igloo stands for completeness and sanctuary.
It is warm on the inside and cold on the outside and therefore signifies the difference between the internal and the external.
Pyramid The pyramid is considered to be a focus for power, so for one to appear in a dream is to be concentrating on the power within.
Temple - see Church Buildings in C and Church in Religious Imagery
Tower (obelisk, steeple, lighthouse, etc.)
Any image of a tower is representing the personality, and the Soul within. While there are obvious connotations that conncct it with masculinity, it is more corrcct to perceive it as the Self within a wider context. When thought of in this way attention can then be paid to other attributes of the tower, such as where windows, doors and staircases are placed. This leads to a greater understanding of the Spiritual Self.
The warehouse being primarily a storage place has the symbolism of being a repository either for spiritual energy or for spiritual rubbish.
Components of buildings Balcony (or ledge, sill, etc.)
We all have need for support within our lives and a balcony indicates both support and protec- tiveness. It can also represent the Mother in her protective aspect. Construction or demolition of a building. We all have the abil- itv within us to construct successful lives and equally an ability to self- dcstruct.
A dream that highlights construction or demolition gives us access to those qualities and abilities within ourselves. Doors also see individual entry Doors refer to the openings of the body and therefore, by default, one’s scxualitv.
The front door and back door signifies the vagina and the anus respectively. Breaking down the door can be taken to indicate an inhibition over sex and an unwillingness to face the issues. It can also represent rape or abuse.
Opening and closing the door
While often taken to stand for intercourse. this can show the dreamer’s attitude to sex.
Refusing to open the door
Although the dreamer may not technically be a virgin, for this to occur represents an innocent approach to their scxualitv.
A door between the outer and inner rooms shows there mav be a conflict between the conscious and the unconscious. Barring the door This highlights the dreamer’s need for self- protection.
If an animal or person forces his way in and destroys the lock
Our own protective mechanisms have let us clown. Escaping by another door indicates the dreamer needs to find a new solution to the one he thought of to solve a problem.
Someone knocking on the door signifies that the dreamer’s attention is being drawn to an external situation.
Any passage can stand for the passages within the body; for instance the vagina or the anus. Equally; on a psychological level, it signifies how we allow our personal space to be penetrated. Passages also represent the transitions between the various stages of our lives.
Lift A lift usually indicates how we deal with information.
For instance, a lift going down would suggest going down into the subconscious, while a lift going up would be moving towards the spiritual.
It is believed that in the sleep state we leave our bodies. Thus, descending in a lift and getting stuck represents the entrapment of the spiritual by the physical body.
Rooms in a dream can describe various parts of our personalities or levels of understanding, but often signify either the womb or the mother figure. Thus the kitchen would be the home- making part of us whereas a sitting room would be the more relaxed, comfortable side.
A small room with only one door or a basement with water in it is a direct representation of the womb, and may indicate a return to the womb-like state.
A series of rooms
This refers to the various aspects of femininity and often to the whole soul. Anything in an upstairs room An upstairs room usually signifies mental or spiritual attributes, so any object will represent an idea or concept.
The basement or cellar This meaning can be ambivalent, since a cellar can represent the parts of ourselves that we have chosen to suppress. It can also represent family beliefs and habits, particularly if the basement is that of the parents. Leaving one room and going into another If this is a deliberate action in the dream, then it represents a change of state and of leaving something behind. Empty rooms Something, such as comfort or support, is lacking in our lives. Stairs Stairs are often an indication of the steps we must take in order to achieve a goal. Climbing the stairs is indicative of the effort that we must make in order to have access to the more mystical, spiritual side of our being. It can more simply be the exertion we practise in our everyday life. Going downstairs Conversely, in order to have access to the hidden unconscious side of ourselves, we need to ‘go down’ into the unconscious.
A golden staircase
This is such a basic image, with so many interpretations, that particular attention needs to be paid both to other aspects of the dream, and also the dreamers spiritual state at that specific time. Largely it represents a ‘death’, but not necessarily a physical death.
It is more the realisation that we no longer need to be trapped within the physical, but can move towards a more fulfilling life.
It is a way out of the mundane.
Walls A wall signifies a block to progress a difficulty we have or will come up against. Often the nature of the wall will give some clue as to what the block is.
For instance, a wall which looks old will signify an old problem, whereas a glass wall would indicate some difficulties with perception. Walls closing in could describe the remembered feelings of birth, but is more likely to represent a feeling of being trapped by the lifestyle we have.
A brick wall, rampart or dividing wall all signify the difference between two states of reality often the inner psychological state and the exterior everyday world.
Windows Windows will describe the means by which we appreciate the world we live in, the way we perceive reality. Dreaming that we arc looking outwards through a window can suggest that we have a more extrovert view of ourselves and will tend to look at external circumstances. Looking inwards through a window indicates we are looking inwards at our own personality, and perhaps at our own motivation. Opening a window The interpretation depends on whether we are opening the window from the inside or the outside.
If the former, we are dealing with our inner feelings which we may need to escape; the latter shows our attitude to outside opinion.
Breaking through a window (or glass door)
This can suggest the first sexual experience.
Stained glass windows
Because of the connection with churches, stained glass can be accepted as religious belief (also see Colour).... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
The condition of the building can reveal the condition of your health, a relationship, or a situation.
What does the building hold? If it is just an empty shell, consider if you’re living superficially, without gaining any real spiritual substance.
Of what is the building constructed? Just like the story of “The Three Little Pigs,” you want your hopes to be based on good foundational material if they’re ever going to materialize in reality.
Are the doors and windows of this building open and accessible? If so, this shows a very open-minded person who may be too exposed. Similarly, a building that appears locked up tight indicates narrow views and large obstacles to intimacy.
What type of building is it? Certain structures carry fairly direct meanings.
For example, hotels, motels, and mobile homes represent temporary conditions, change, movement, and transition, sometimes literally in our living space.... The Language of Dreams
The environment we put ourselves in reflects our state of mind or the emotions we have about a particular situation. We all have the ability within us to construct successful lives and equally an ability to self-destruct.

In these dreams he believed the house represented his personality, and the new things he discovered in the house related to new developments in his work.
Many dream researchers subscribe to Jung’s theory and believe that buildings in dreams represent aspects of the self, or constructions we make in our lives. The upstairs represents the conscious mind, and the lower floors and cellars the unconscious, or hidden, mind. Different parts of the building might represent different times in your life, and the attitudes and beliefs you have built from experience. The features of your dream building can also mirror features of your personality; by so doing, they reflect your character, hopes and dreams, and how you feel about yourself.
If you dream of a house or a building, ask yourself what aspect of you the building represents. Does it represent how you see yourself? Is it a symbol of your body, mind or spirit? If the house is crumbling or decaying, are you in need of some kind of psychological, spiritual or physical cleaning and renewal? If the building is burning, does this show your desire to get rid of something that is holding you back? If the building is in ruins, do you feel worthless and manipulated by others? If the building is tall, does this suggest ambitions yet to be fulfilled? Is the house symbolic of your feelings in childhood or other past experiences? What are the conditions like in the house? Ask yourself what personal associations the buildings in your dreams have and what they represent to you.
The environment and your feeling reaction to the building in your dream will all contribute important clues as to its meaning, but it is also important to bear in mind the purpose for which the building is used in waking life. For example, castles and fortresses suggest protection and royalty, whereas factories suggest work and routine. Although high-rise buildings are believed to be phallic symbols, as a type they all have different functions: skyscrapers are homes and workplaces, lighthouses offer hope to sailors at sea, and towers isolate, elevate and imprison.
Churches and religious buildings offer us hope and quiet reflection, libraries and museums supply us with information and stimulate our minds. Courts provide social justice, whilst public buildings symbolize work, tax, bureaucratic or legal matters that need to be sorted. Hospitals are centers of healing and castles are historical icons. Houses, bungalows, flats, mansions and palaces offer different types of accommodation for different types of needs. Prisons are places for criminals to learn the consequences of their actions, and hotels provide a welcome break from home.
If any of these buildings appear in your dream, this chapter will help you interpret the meaning; but for domestic buildings, homes and shops you may want to refer to HOME and MONEY AND SHOPPING. For places associated with entertainment, such as cinemas and theatres, you may want to refer to ARTS AND CRAFTS and LEISURE, and for places of work and learning consult SCHOOL AND WORK....

(2) The bull may refer to your masculinity (whether you are a man or a woman).
If you are a woman, it may refer to the opposite sex - perhaps expressing your (unconscious) feelings about men in general or a particular man.
(3) Animality’ may be symbolized. A man may experience his own sexuality as something bestial, getting in the way of his ‘higher5 pursuits; an object of disgust or fear.
Similarly, a woman may, consciously or unconsciously, see male sexuality as nasty and brutish; the same may apply to other aspects of masculinity - for example, the fighting, competitive aspect.
If a woman dreams of being chased by a bull, the meaning may be that she is afraid of sexual relations with men. The bull may represent the woman’s father - in which case she may need to dissolve her father fixation. In any case, the woman would need to assert her femininity, not repress it: her own confident femininity has power to tame wild male lust and transform it into tender sensual adoration.
(4) The taming or tethering of a bull may signify the harmonious integration of your animality, especially your sexuality, or the whole of the hidden, unconscious part of your psyche. See also section (8) below.
(5) The sacrifice of a bull may signify a victory (achieved or needed) of spirituality over animality. Sacrifice is the relinquishing or transforming of something in order to attain something more desirable. But the mere killing of a bull might signify the repression of emotion or instinct, or of your masculinity.
(6) Is it the proverbial bull in a china shop: the accident-prone blunderer, the person who never seems to have any luck and for whom everything goes wrong?
If so, the image may be seen as a warning that you need to change your self-image - which may entail changing your job or even your domestic situation.
It is no good thinking of making a living as a concert pianist if you have fingers missing. Take an honest look at yourself and build your career and your life on your strong points, not your weak ones. Give up your fantasies and take a good look at reality. Pay special attention to your dreams: they may now begin to reveal to
you your real strengths - buried talents, perhaps, that need to be dug up from your unconscious. (On persona)
Resist putting the blame for your ‘bad luck’ on someone or something else. Perhaps what we call ‘bad luck’ is actually brought about, not by chance, but by our innermost attitude towards life, which in turn is generated by a negative attitude towards ourselves.
(7) The bull may symbolize fertility (as in mythology). Your unconscious has the power to bring about new life if you allow it to penetrate your conscious mind.
(8) The bull may represent the self (in the Jungian sense), your true nature. Yes, those depths of the psyche that are despised or feared by the conscious ego may eventually be seen - by dint of constant self-exploration - as your true self.
(There are links here with (4) above.

The archetype of the bully manifests the core truth that the spirit is always stronger than the body, and your relationship to this archetype should be evaluated within a framework far more expansive than evaluating whether you bully people or are being bullied.

Conventional wisdom holds that underneath a bully is a coward trying to keep others from discovering his or her true identity.

(1) Who is being buried? If it is someone close to you - for example, your partner - then some unconscious, buried resentment towards that person may be expressing itself. Don’t be alarmed by the discovery that your emotions towards the person are ambivalent: emotions often oscillate between opposite poles. Just ask yourself what it is you resent.
If it is something actually in the person, have it out with him or her. But is it something you have projected on to that person - some resentment against life in general, that has perhaps been with you since childhood? (For projection)
(2) Is it a (recurrent) dream of the actual burial of a real-life person - mother or father, perhaps? If so, you probably need to clear your emotional system of any troublesome feelings attached to that person - guilt, hatred, or whatever.
It is all right for the dead to live on inside you; but don’t let them disturb your peace.
If you love the person, there is no problem.
If you hate the person, learn to forgive: he or she probably did the best he or she could.
If the feeling is guilt, forgive yourself. Why expect the impossible?
(3) Is it you who are being buried in the dream? This may be a symbolic expression of a fear of being overwhelmed by unconscious forces.
If so, the first step should be to get (better) acquainted with any repressed emotions that are threatening - or seem to be threatening - to take control of you. This done, the next step would be to establish control over them. But this does not mean simply burying them again.
You may wish to trace the emotions back to their origins, to the experience that first gave rise to them. It may be that an objective appraisal will rob the emotions of their menacing power. Should you feel unable to cope with the emotions, consult a psychotherapist or an understanding friend.
(4) If it is you who are being buried it may be that the tomb is a w omb. That is to say, the burial may symbolize a mother-attachment that is preventing you from achieving a proper independence and fulfilling your individual ‘destiny’.
(5) The burial may represent a need for a radical reconstruction - a death and resurrection - of the self. All creation involves destruction: in order to shape the clay into the desired form, the potter must first destroy its existing form. The same applies to personal reconstruction: the old self must die - sometimes painfully - if the new’ self is to be born.
(6) Even if it is someone or something else that is being buried, that person or thing may symbolize some part of yourself that you have rejected and buried in your unconscious (for repression and suppression)... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

Dreams about death announce changes or the end of a phase. Before this dream Joseph was a joker... too much! His friends and coworkers were always berating his heavy and tasteless jokes; however, he did not seem willing to change. Joseph took a few days to understand the message of his dream; a few months before, a friend of his had had a really hard time because of his jokes. The dream was announcing to Joseph a change of attitude, it was warning that: “If you do not want to lose all your friends and end up surrounded by strangers—like in the dream—you better bury your joker side.” After this, he knew he had to give way to a more staid Joseph and, of course, it was not fair that others will have a hard time because of his inappropriate attitude....

If the lift is going down, we may be going down into our unconscious for self-understanding, whereas a lift going up could represent moving towards greater self-understanding. Halls or passageways in a dream can, for Freudians, represent passages within the body, such as the vagina or penis. On a psychological level, they can suggest how we let others invade our personal space. On a spiritual level, passages can represent the different stages of our life. A hall is the center of a building and to dream of entering a hall may therefore represent the beginnings of a journey towards self-awareness.
According to dream lore, to dream of a long hallway suggests a period of worry ahead.
Walls in dreams indicate potential blocks to your progress, or difficulties you may be up against in waking life. They suggest obstacles that are stopping you from getting what you want. This may be something from real life or something within yourself. Perhaps you are being like a brick by refusing to show your feelings, or have come up against a brick wall with a particular problem or issue.
If the wall looks old, this suggests the problem is old.
If the wall is made of glass, this suggests problems with perception.
If the wall is closing in, the dreamer may feel trapped by their current lifestyle. A brick wall, rampart or dividing wall all suggest the difference between everyday life and the inner psychological state. According to dream lore, if you find a gateway through a wall, this is a sign of good fortune. See also entries for doors, rooms, stairs, staircase and windows in HOME.... The Element Encyclopedia

If the building is run down or dilapidated, this may suggest a personality or body in need of attention, but if the building is well cared for and clean, it suggests confidence and good self-esteem. A building under attack may suggest that someone or something is trying to break in.
If a building is under construction or being demolished, this refers to your own ability to construct and destroy your life.
If the building is familiar, the reference may be to the actual building itself; for example, if you dream of a structural fault, you might want to get the design checked out.
If the building you are exploring in your dream is a public building such as a factory, law court, prison and department store, the building often represents the function suggested by its nature, such as work, education and healing. Bear in mind, though, that if these images appear in your dreams, they will also have personal connections and feelings associated with those buildings. For example, if a factory feels like a museum, both associations should be considered. Finally, consider carefully how you react to the building in your dream. Were you intimidated by it or did you feel comfortable? If the former, your dream may be warning that you are over-reaching yourself in waking life. The latter is more reassuring....

If you are a woman, you may have suffered an incubus attack; if you are a man, you may have suffered a succubus attack. In the past, when sexual pleasure was considered sinful, women who had erotic dreams were said to have been visited by the incubus, or male demon, whilst a sexually voracious succubus, or female demon, was said to visit a sleeping man. These evil spirits were thought to pin down and paralyze their sleeping victims in order to have sex with them. The words ’incubus’ and ’succubus’ are still used today to describe the sensation of having a weight press down on your chest, accompanied by a feeling of dread and being unable to move while you are sleeping. They are no longer applied to dreams about sex, which are of course natural and normal.
Incubi (plural of ’incubus’, meaning ’one who lies upon’ in Latin) were thought to be particularly fond of seducing nuns and other women committed to the celibate life. Sexual repression is thought to be the most likely explanation but the cause of this phenomenon remains unclear. Dream experts have ruled out demons and malevolent spirits as the cause, suggesting instead that they may have been caused by temporary breathing difficulties combined with sleep paralysis, a condition that occurs in the state just before dropping off to sleep or just before fully awakening from sleep. The condition is characterized by being unable to move or speak. It is often associated with a feeling that there is some sort of menacing presence, a feeling which often arouses fear but is accompanied by an inability to cry out. The paralysis, which experts are unable to explain fully, typically lasts a few seconds but leaves a lasting impression on the dreamer.... The Element Encyclopedia
Dreaming of one of them indicates that you are experiencing a high level of self-discovery and integration. Jesus and Buddha exemplify the masculine principle at its highest level of evolution.
The masculine principle connects to the power of thought. Through very different teachings, both of these mystics taught the concept that what you think and believe becomes your reality. They exemplify that it is possible, through love, to experience states of bliss in this often challenging life.
The appearance of one of these great teachers in a dream is to put you on notice that you are in a moment of elevating consciousness and self-integration.
It is not uncommon for an archetypal figure to be silent in a dream, as it is the figure’s mere presence that can be significant.

If you are walking past a church or religious building in your dream, this suggests that you are not making contact with the best part of yourself. Is your waking life so crammed with obligations that you don’t have time to explore your inner world for some much-needed reflection, meditation and contemplation? If you entered a temple in your dream and immediately felt enveloped in a sense of calm, was your unconscious suggesting that you would enjoy better health if you treated your body as a temple, putting your physical, emotional and spiritual welfare first? Dreams about religious buildings may also be an expression of anger against dogma; again it depends on the feelings evoked by the building in your dream. Did you feel relieved or tense? If a vault features in your dream, it may represent your highest spiritual ideals, as vaults often appear in churches or temples with painted stars in imitation of the vault of the heavens. A vault may also recall a crypt or burial chamber, and as such, it may conjure up thoughts of death. See also RELIGION.... The Element Encyclopedia
