Islamic Dream Interpretation
Toys in dreams not only reflect your desire for more play, or urge you to grow up in some way, they can also suggest nostalgia for childhood that has been lost. Dolls are especially important because they so resemble the human form, and because children endow them with emotions and characters. Your dreaming mind may therefore use a doll to symbolize something or someone in your life. For example, if you stick needles or pins in the doll, or mistreat it in any way, this can represent negative feelings towards a particular person. Many doll dreams use the doll as a target for violence and, if this is the case, it could also refer to how the dreamer felt as a child when smacked emotionally or physically—like a helpless child. Dolls can also represent emotions that the dreamer would like to discharge on someone else, or the feeling of wanting to be a precious doll to someone. It may also express some undeveloped part of the dreamer’s personality and the need to relearn some childhood lessons we may have forgotten.
If you dreamed that you were in a playground surrounded by other children, were you enjoying yourself or did you feel left out? If you felt exhilarated, your unconscious may once again be signaling your need to have more fun in waking life, but if you felt aloof or alone from the other children, it could suggest that you prefer to play no part in the immature behaviour currently displayed by a group of people in your waking life.

• They may be represented by your parents, boss, pastor or any other figure who is set over you in an administrative or spiritual position.
If you dream of an authority in a positive light, then it could indicate that your leadership is being accepted and that you are growing in that area.
• It could mean that you are attaining to that level of leadership and authority in your spiritual walk.
• If they are authorities from worldly circles, they could speak of archetypes and mindsets that control your thinking.
Negative: Dreaming of being in bondage to an authority would mean that you are under some form of oppression or attack.
• Perhaps you are being controlled by influences not of God and been brought under the domination of something that is against the Word. It may also indicate that you are trying to dominate and impose your own will on others.
Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to higher authorities.
For there is no authority except from God: those that exist are ordained by God.
• The highest authority is naturally the Lord Himself.
• I will often see this depicted as an umbrella in the spirit. I will see someone with an umbrella above them with holes in it. Or I will perhaps see that they are not standing under the umbrella away from the storm.
• When I see this I know that the Lord is saying that this person’s authority is not covering them correctly. Secondly they are not under cover at all and are under attack.
• As the Scripture says, all authority ultimately comes from the Lord. Negative: To rebel against an authority that you personally know God has told you to be under, is tantamount to rebelling against the Lord Himself.

To see a celebrity in your dream symbolizes certain attributes or features that they possess. Pay attention to any recent events or occurrences in your life, and see if there are any similarities between them and the celebrity in the dream. Often, we develop a fixation on a celebrity and this can be incorporated into dreams. They possess attributes that we sometimes wish we had and are often seen as status symbols. Consider if the celebrity’s name has any meaning.
The dream could be a play on their name.

To dream that a friend or lover becomes a celebrity suggests your fear of losing the friendship and loyalty of this person.
To see a celebrity in your dream, or even to be dating or making out with a famous celebrity in your dream, represents your understanding about him or her and the feelings he/she generates in you. Something in your waking life has triggered these similar beliefs and feelings.
If you dream about being friends with a celebrity, your dream is telling you that you should have higher self-esteem. You are worth believing in. You need to work on believing that you are a special person.
It is not uncommon that a real-life obsession with a certain celebrity may carry over onto your dream world. Celebrities are often seen as heroes and role models for certain qualities or the fame and acceptance we want to achieve ourselves.
To dream about a celebrity dying signifies that your feelings about that person are changing significantly. Perhaps you no longer admire what they once represented to you. Alternatively, you may want to repress that aspect of yourself that is represented by that celebrity.... My Dream Interpretation
The essence of a particular celebrity’s image can be distilled into a character aspect by the ways in which we perceive the person. Millions of people hold the same projected image of celebrities.
The power of all that magnified perception endows them with superhuman status and removes any sense of the person underneath the persona. Celebrities show up in our dreams when the stakes are a little higher in terms of what we’re dreaming about. By providing a more powerful image, the unconscious is telling you to pay more attention. Approach the interpretation the same way you would anyone in your dreams.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
As well as giving you temporary gratification and adding a hint of glamor to your life (perhaps in compensation for anxieties about your personal appearance or boredom with the routine of your life), your dream celebrity may have had another purpose. A dream of Clint Eastwood or John Wayne or other celebrated icons of manliness may, if you are a man, have been acting out your anima; if you are a woman, your animus may have been Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn. Any of these stars may have highlighted personal qualities that you greatly admire, would like to possess or are relevant to your current situation. For example, if you dreamed of Nelson Mandela, would you like—or do you need—to become more compassionate, patient and tolerant? It may also be that you long to change your direction in life and your dreaming mind has summoned up a representative to encourage and inspire you to follow your dreams.
If you secretly yearn to be a singer / songwriter, a dream of sharing the stage with a top group and together sending the crowd wild may encourage you to pursue your vision. Finally, bear in mind that whenever a celebrity appears in your dream, they are typically someone you have admired for a long time; such a dream may also suggest that you want some of the recognition that routinely comes their way. Maybe your role in waking life is hidden from view? Being singled out by a celebrity in your dream—no doubt to the envy of your dream friends who suddenly see you with new admiring eyes—suggests that you somehow feel undervalued in your waking life or taken for granted by those around you....

To dream of touching a ghost and having it disappear indicates that you are trying to confront and come to terms with painful memories. Demonic ghost images with no face or dark shadows (’dementors’, if you are a Harry Potter fan) may represent your negative tendencies, unpleasant parts of personality or your ’shadow’. Old superstition-based dream interpretations say that dreaming of friendly ghosts is a lucky omen, and that you should be receiving unexpected good luck. On the other hand, if you were very frightened by the ghost in your dream, then others will try to impose their will on you and you must be vigilant in order to stand up to it....

A difficult birth may represent problems in delivering a product to the marketplace.
A premature birth may remark that you are way ahead of yourself and others and, as a result, your ideas may not have been cultivated long enough in order to be realized.... Ariadne's Book of Dream
If you are pregnant and you dream that labor and delivery was difficult, it probably reflects anxieties about the impending birth. The same applies to dreams about giving birth to an animal; they are simply mirroring your concerns and anxieties.
If you are a prospective father, your dream may also be depicting your hopes and fears for the welfare of your unborn child.
If you are not pregnant, birth dreams can indicate a desire for children but are more likely to represent something else in waking life. The birth of a child signals a new beginning and the emergence of new life; in dreams the meaning is much the same: a new way of life, a new attitude, a new discovery, a new project and so on.
If you hear about a birth, or watch or witness a birth in your dream, this also suggests the beginning of a new and fruitful cycle in your life.
Birth dreams therefore are an expression of big changes that have been occurring for a long period of time. Did the dream delivery go well or was it difficult?
Again, the answer may indicate the likely ease of turning your hopes into reality.
If this doesn’t apply, then dream births may symbolize your brain child, perhaps an idea or a project you are longing to complete successfully.
Alternatively, did your dream focus on one aspect of birth—the umbilical cord, for example? If the cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck, this may indicate that your ideas are being strangled or in danger of being strangled.
If the cord was neatly severed, this can indicate that your ideas have been cut free and are now independent of you.
If there were problems cutting the cord, this could be a symbol of a grown-up family that is beginning to leave home. Or it may be that you yourself are finding it hard to fly the family nest and branch out on your own.
If you are not able to see your baby after a difficult labor, this can indicate that you are laboring in vain in waking life and aren’t being rewarded by the sight of your mental offspring.... The Element Encyclopedia

Most dream analysts agree that one of the most helpful aspects of dream interpretation is that it helps present to you in symbolic language the challenges you are facing in waking life so that you can understand them and yourself better. These challenges can often be represented by symbols that are easy to understand, but in some cases these symbols appear to have no clear-cut explanation.
This chapter explores those symbols that seem to have no obvious associations and suggests ways for you to interpret them. Bear in mind, however, that in some instances the nature of your problem in waking life might not be at all evident to you. It may simply be that you have lost your sense of purpose but, because you have been so busy with your routines, you have not consciously realized that something is amiss. Your unconscious mind, however, will have picked up on this; a dream that depicts you wandering in a maze, for example, may be an attempt to make you consciously aware of your lack of direction so that you can do something about it.

If you rolled your sleeves up in your dream, is a forthcoming task looming large in waking life, or are you in danger of going bankrupt and ‘losing the shirt off your back’? A dream that features a shirt may be associated with gambling—putting one’s shirt—on a horse.
If you were choked by a tight collar, scarf or tie in your dream, your unconscious may have been drawing attention to feelings of restriction, maybe in relation to your work, as collars and neckties tend to be worn by professionals. A tie is sometimes a sexual symbol, but it also represents something that can choke feelings.
If the tie is colorful, this might represent a creative new approach. To dream of stitching a shirt or item of clothing suggests that repairs are needed in some areas of your life.
If you find yourself sewing a patch on your shirt, was your unconscious speaking in puns? Is there something in your life that needs patching up? Or have you been trying to hide something about yourself from others, such as the big heart you used to wear on your sleeve?... The Element Encyclopedia

If members of various professional bodies appeared in your dream, such as doctors, dentists or pilots, try to make a link with the profession they represent and the relevant area of your waking life, as your unconscious may be offering you inspirational or helpful advice.
When the main point of interest in your dream is the occupation or profession, there is typically a good reason why your unconscious has highlighted that particular job. For example, members of the caring professions in dreams, such as nurses, nuns, charity or voluntary workers, may suggest a more compassionate side to your nature, or the side of yourself that has a vocation in life. In men, these images may suggest the importance of non-sexual relationships. For more information about specific occupations and people at work, see SCHOOL AND WORK.... The Element Encyclopedia
