An apostle dream is much like that of an angel dream but more men then women seem to have these. Usually when an apostle speaks to you in a dream it is a spiritual message for you and deserves the utmost attention you can give it. See Angel.... Encyclopedia of Dreams
Dreams of an apostle symbolize that good news is coming your way. Perhaps this dream is alerting you to pay attention to a guru/teacher that will be appearing in your life, or that the guru/teacher that you’ve been praying for is you. See Angel and Ambassador.... Strangest Dream Explanations
(1) If you are being chased in a dream, what is chasing you probably symbolizes something you are afraid of, either in your external life or - more commonly - in your inner self, your unconscious. For example, a woman who dreams of being chased by men is probably afraid of sex. (Freud would add that her dreams present, in disguise, an unconscious, repressed desire for sex.)
(2) If you are doing the chasing, the ‘you’ in your dream is probably your conscious ego and the thing you are chasing is almost certainly some part of yourself that frightens you. Chasing it away means disowning it, banishing it from your conscious life. It might be much better to try to integrate it into your conscious life. At the very least, get to know it and understand it.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Specific furniture items can indicate the attitudes, beliefs and notions with which you furnish your mind and selfimage; you might be, for example, an antique fancier or a lover of novelty. The purpose to which they are put may also be sending you a message; if you dream of a chair or sofa do you need to take it easy? If you focused on a light bulb, are you in need of illumination? If you have excess furniture in your dream, is your lifestyle overcrowded?... The Element Encyclopedia

Dreams that feature brooms are considered to be a sign of good fortune, suggesting that you are making a clean sweep in your waking life. The dream may be urging you to sweep out something from your past, so pay attention to what you are sweeping up.
If the broom is damaged, you may be suffering from low self-esteem or feelings of insecurity.
If the broom is being used outside, are you taking too much interest in the outside world and neglecting what is really important to you?
Dreams of scissors can be related to decisiveness and cutting out unwanted emotional aspects of the dreamer’s life.
If the scissors are unused, this can express a desire to begin a new relationship or make an existing one stronger.
Dream scissors may also suggest that you are dividing your attention among too many people.
If you are cutting with scissors, you are in the process of making an important decision. Another interpretation for scissors is that they are a symbol of sexuality, either male or female, depending on whether they are open or closed. A knot in a dream symbolizes the various ties in your life and relationships with others.
If you carefully untie a knot in your dream, this suggests a readiness to deal with a problem, rather than ignoring it by impatiently cutting the knot in two. The knot also has sexual symbolism, representing a couple’s personal and sexual union.
Dream envelopes suggest messages to or from the dreamer.
If the envelope is open, this signifies daily problems that can be tackled but if the envelope is closed, it may be harder to solve the problems.
If the envelope is bulging, you may be feeling that your life is overburdened with worries and emotional expectations from those around you. A ladder in your dream may relate to work in your home, such as painting, but if you cannot make a practical connection, try and think of the purpose of the dream ladder. How is it being used? Like elevators and stairs, ladders in dreams relate to your progress or lack of it. See also HOME.... The Element Encyclopedia
The arrival of a letter in your dream represents a realization, usually about someone else, or news about yourself. Your reaction to the letter is important. Did you feel anxious, resigned or happy? How you opened the letter is also significant. Did you open it eagerly or did you put it aside unwilling to open it? Whenever a letter appears in your dream, your dreaming mind is telling you that something needs your attention in waking life. Dreaming about receiving letters, just as in daily life, usually represents receiving news, information or messages from someone specific, from your unconscious or from the world at large. You may be coming into greater awareness about some aspect of your life or yourself.
If your dream letters remain unopened, this may represent missed opportunities.
If the letter is black around the edges, this may refer to your feelings about death.
If the letter is from a particular person, this suggests specific feelings or thoughts concerning the person the letter is from.
If you get to read the letter in your dream, try to see if the text has any bearing on your waking life.
If the letter came from abroad, you may be thinking of traveling or are thinking of someone who lives abroad. To dream of writing a letter may tell you of the need to communicate information to someone; a dream of writing several letters may tell you that there are many people you wish to make contact with.
If you dream of sending a letter, this may be a prompt to contact the person to whom you are posting the letter or to impart information to them.
Incomprehensible or unintelligible letters may suggest frustration at being unable to solve some problem. A letter that turns out to be a blank page is a clear sign that you should stop waiting for other people to take the initiative and take the initiative yourself. An anonymous letter can be a message from your unconscious that you need to slow down and reflect on your actions in waking life. While handwriting in a dream letter can reveal personal feelings or communications, a typewritten or word-processed communication implies a more impersonal communication.
Dreams of sending a telegram may occur during times of stagnation or routine in your professional life and may serve as an urgent stimulus to change. Alternatively, dreaming of receiving a telegram may express an urgent yearning to make contact with someone. Because of their indiscreet and fun nature, dreaming of postcards may suggest that you need to be more open with those around you. According to Freud, parcels may symbolize female sexuality.
If you are excited about opening a parcel, this may suggest the heady thrill of a new relationship, but if you do not want to open a parcel, this may express a fear of intimacy with others.... The Element Encyclopedia
If you are attending a party in your dream, it may mean that you should get out a little more and embrace life; or perhaps you need to celebrate something about yourself.
If the party you are attending is dull or you aren’t enjoying yourself for some reason, then it may be an indication that you have doubts about the social skills you possess.
If you dream of a political party rally, it shows that you are prepared to stand up for your beliefs. When a dream is set on stage, whether it is in the form of an opera, play or ballet, this suggests you are working through an issue that relates to the way you are seen by others. To dream that you are in a post office signifies an important message from your unconscious or inner wisdom. It may relate to your need to reach out and communicate with others. You may be trying to maintain your beliefs or make contact with someone from your past. See also ARTS AND CRAFTS; LEISURE; LETTERS AND COMMUNICATION.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you have experienced a traumatic event, for example an attack, accident or disaster, such as an earthquake, you may find that your dreaming mind recalls the horror of that event but as time passes the nightmares tend to become less intense. In general, they have little meaning other than your memory of it and are an attempt by your dreaming mind to help you deal with the original horror. Post-traumatic stress nightmares are usually different from other nightmares as the content of the dream will closely resemble a traumatic event that happened in their waking lives.
POWs from World War II and concentration camp survivors have been known to suffer post-traumatic stress nightmares for up to fifty years after the event. Unlike ‘normal’ nightmares, these dreamers can experience significant physical symptoms during REM sleep and non-REM sleep, such as an increase in respiration and heart rate, muscle twitches and more than one arousal. Adults might experience other traumatic events in their lives, such as the loss of a loved one or bankruptcy, and these events can also continue to play out in dreams over the years in the form of nightmares. The more standard anxiety nightmare dreamers, however, have nightmares that relate to work, school or relationship stresses. The threat here isn’t to your life but to your self-confidence and sense of self.... The Element Encyclopedia

A poster present in a dream is often a direct message from the unconscious.
It is important to know if you were able to read it and if you remember what was written or drawn; there lies the key for the interpretation of the dream. Sometimes the unconscious uses word play and phrases to tell you something.
If an image is displayed instead of words it is necessary to consult its symbolism. Other symbols and the oneiric scene context are also important for the correct interpretation of the dream.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
A dream postman who passes you by without giving you a letter may indicate feelings of disappointment.
If you run after the postman, this suggests that you are determined to create your own luck and if you see yourself as a postman, perhaps you feel that you deserve to be given more responsibility.
If you regard people who deliver mail as impartial go-betweens, the image of a postman may be linked for you with a person in waking life, perhaps yourself, who is acting as an intermediary.
If you dreamed that the postman was someone you know, such as your father, who handed you a letter in your sister’s handwriting, perhaps your dream is reflecting real life with your father playing the role of mediator between you and your sister.... The Element Encyclopedia
Your posture is the foundation for all your movement through life.
It is an accurate reflection of your underlying mood and expressions of the unconscious.
If your dream reflects particularly good posture and an erect spine, you are expressing a profound sense of well-being. This can also be a compensation for neglecting a holistic approach to how you move through life. Bad posture could be a clue that something outside of your conscious awareness is throwing you off entirely; time to check on the foundations of your lifestyle.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
1- Body language is an important aspect in dreams. Our dream characters may develop exaggerated movements or postures to highlight certain information which we need to recognise.
2- We often pick up information on a subliminal level without being able to understand why.
The postures we or others adopt in dreams often give us the answers to those questions that need answering.
3- An exaggerated posture will indicate emotions. Living and being mean that we are capable of adopting certain recognisable stances and postures (as in yoga) in order to progress spiritually.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
Even in everyday life, the way we hold and position our body, the inclination of chest and head, the movement of hands, are a means of communication.
The apparently intuitive information in some dreams, when investigated, can be traced to an unconscious insight into the language of the living body. We all have this ability to understand body language, but it seems to be something which is inherited from past times before verbal language. It therefore remains a largely unconscious ability. In our dreams, however, it is a major factor in how the dream is structured.
If you cannot find a satisfying description below, imagine yourself making the movement or posture in the dream to see if you can define what the feeling quality is, or what you are saying non-verbally. It can often be of value to make the movement or take up the posture physically instead of in the imagination. By comparing the movement/posture with another one, it can help to clarify its quality.
Example: Marilyn was expenencing emotional pain connected with her impending divorce. Marilyn had dreamt of seeing a dinosaur standing in her path, devounng all who approached it. We explored it by having Marilyn find a body posture and movements which for her expressed the feeling of the dinosaur. In doing so Marilyn did not sense anger or aggression, but she did feel like a predator which always had to take to gain her own needs. This feeling immediately reminded her of her family life as a child. She remembered when she was sent shopping as a very young child of three or four; as well as buying what she had been asked, she purchased some sweets for herself. When she arrived home she was treated as if she had done a terrible thing, and that was where she began to feel like a predator. It seemed to her as if her own needs were always gained at the expense of someone else.
‘With this awareness, she could now see that the dinosaur standing iti her path clearly related to her present situation. Bargaining to gain a realistic share of the house and property jointly owned by her husband and herself, felt to her as if she were gaining her needs at his expense, like a predator. That made her feel so awful, she was almost ready to allow her husband to take all, leaving her without house or money to start again. Her awareness of where the feelings arose from, and the unrealistic pan they played in her life, allowed her to relate to the situation with less pain and more wisdom’ (from Mind and Movement, Tony Crisp). ...
