The meaning of Delay in dream | Dream interpretation
Self-imposed restriction. Or, timing not right to go ahead. Also, fear of making the wrong choices; trust your inner guidance and move forward.
For an accurate interpretation the details of the dream must be correlated to its action, but as a general guide: this dream portends a season of upsets and/or family disagreements, unless it was a delayed bus, train, or airplane which was fea- tured, in which case it indicates some upcoming problems connected with money or financial affairs.
Dreaming that you arrive late to a train station or bus stop is a very recurrent dream. This image symbolizes that, due to your laziness and inhibition, you are missing opportunities. Arriving late or delayed to a place also indicates that there is a gap between your interior work rhythm and the course of events.
To be delayed in a dream, warns you of the scheming of enemies to prevent your progress.
Dreams of a delay symbolize that there is something blocking you from moving forward. Perhaps you are venting out and releasing -sabotage mechanisms, and feelings of being unprepared, insecure, or afraid of success.
1. A period of disappointment, possible disagreements.
2. Possible ﬁnancial setbacks or difﬁculties (delayed trains or planes).
3. Plans for projects should be reviewed for possible obstacles.
Fear of missing something.
When there seems to be a long delay in your dream, with you waiting for something to happen, it means that you will receive a surprise that could be pleasant or unpleasant.
Vision: Dreaming about being delayed: you have chosen the wrong support—be better prepared next time.
Depth Psychology: Do you have the feeling that you missed a connection? Are you afraid that you will miss the right moment next time? Do you often avoid making decisions? Do you like to put off until tomorrow what you could do today? Do you like to “sit” on your problems, hoping they will go away? Stop procrastinating—get busy—and the dream is telling you to do it now!
Delay from a spiritual perspective suggests that the time is not right for a particular event or course of action.
Psychological / emotional perspective: If we are causing delay then we are not yet ready to take action: if someone else is the cause then we must wait for outside circumstances to be right.
Material aspects: Delay can signify a lack of organization and can also, through dreams, allow the expression of frustration.
