If in your dream dwarfs appear ugly and malformed, the outcome is disaster.
At times people will see dwarfs, midgets, or very small people in their dreams. These images seem to represent, or allude to, the childlike creative powers in the unconscious.

Consider the details and the emotional tone in the dream and make an attempt to connect it to a situation in your daily life.
The dwarf suggests possibilities for learning and brings to the conscious mind messages from the unconscious.
This is a very favorable dream.

A fairy-tale figure, a helper, and a symbol for being connected to the earth. Are you feeling small and inferior.7 Should you be more humble.7 Also a symbol of the shadow, of what is minuscule and invisible. You still feel like a child; or you know how huge the world and cosmos are and feel small, again like a child.
Dwarfs are small people, traditionally regarded as possessing magical qualities or powers of divination.
This may thus be a highly fortuitous dream symbol. Alternatively, dwarfs can be negative symbols, representing some part of the dreamer’s psyche that is stunted or repressed.

If the dwarf was mean or unhappy, however, beware of false friends. Be very careful of who you confide in.
(1) A dwarf, being below normal size, may symbolize a stunted personality - in which case you need to utilize hitherto neglected / repressed parts of yourself.
(2) A dwarf may sometimes symbolize the true self, not yet (fully) manifest. Pay attention to subsequent dreams for further signals concerning the way to move closer to yourself (your self). (On self)
(In some primitive societies dwarfs were regarded with awe, as having extraordinary divine powers).
(3) Perhaps the dwarf / dwarfs take their symbolism from your association of dwarves with the Snow White story, in which they are miners, descending into the bowels of the earth and bringing up gold. This symbolizes a descent into the unconscious, the depths of the self, to discover the true nature of the self. Dwarfs may thus appear as guides on your quest for self-knowledge. Gold is a symbol of the true self. But what the dwarfs in your dreams are bringing up from your unconscious may be those qualities that you have at some earlier stage in your life rejected (for moral reasons, perhaps, or in order to concentrate on earning a living) but which you now need for the rounding out of your personality.
