Vision: Dreaming about chickens means good times are just around the corner. Seeing several chickens: don’t waste so much time with pleasantries and idle talk. Plucking a chicken: you are not properly compensated for your work. Eating a chicken: your efforts on the job are going to be rewarded. Trying to catch and/or chasing one or more chickens—particularly in men’s dreams: a warning about constantly chasing short-term love affairs—none of which provides satisfaction. You are watching a hen laying eggs: expect to receive money soon; sometimes it also means a new member is added to the family. Watching a hen sitting on eggs: your wishes will come true. Seeing one or more chicks means you are going to be blessed with children, many grandchildren, or a big family in general. Killing a chicken: your carelessness will bring you harm. See Rooster....

As the nurturing center of a house, the kitchen represents the heart and hearth of the self.
It is where the family is fed and comes together in community.
It is the room where people tend to congregate during parties.
It is the symbolic realm of mother and the feminine principle as it is expressed by the family structure. Food is stored and prepared in the kitchen, so the symbolic food for your soul is located in the kitchen of your dreams. Consider how your dream may be informing you of how you are responding to your own spiritual cooking.
If your life experience of family, mother, and kitchen was different from the ideal in your dream, your personal focus must include your individual paradigm. For example, much of a family’s abusive interactions can occur in the kitchen, so such associations should be considered when interpreting a kitchen dream.
The activity in the dream will outline your current internal view around issues of nurturing, self-care, and healing. Any people who appear are key components in the process of exploration.
If they are known to you, use the character-aspect technique to integrate their qualities into your interpretation.
If there were people in the dream not known to you, consider whatever you can remember about them from the dream. Any dream that takes place primarily in a kitchen has the capacity to offer you an overview of the status of your heart center. Use it to examine whether you are experiencing healthy levels of self- nurturance or are in need of adjustments in this area.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
To see a kitchen in your dream signifies your need for emotional nourishment. The kitchen is the emotional heart of the home and when you are trying to sort through your feelings you may dream of it. Kitchens are also places of experimentation and magic where you can create new dishes out of existing ingredients. Did the kitchen encourage you to linger by offering rich food for thought or was it a barren room that had no temptations or stimuli on offer? Pay attention to the condition and layout of your dream kitchen.
If it is cramped and cluttered, you may have taken on too many emotional problems that belong to others.
If the kitchen is bare, your life may be lacking in emotional intimacy.
Kitchen imagery often reflects the need to work through your current problems by listening to your heart and recognizing what really matters to you in your waking life. Assume that all the people and elements present in your kitchen dreams are clues to help you develop your full potential.
If you dream of the scullery, this room—used for the storage of kitchen utensils and doing messy kitchen work—could be another symbol of your mind, the storehouse of your unconscious.... The Element Encyclopedia
Male and female sexuality, as well as family life in general, are symbolized by the utensils and vessels used in cooking. The cooking fire or oven is traditionally the focus of the household and can symbolize the deepest center of your being; something burning in the kitchen should therefore alert you to problems in your family life.
If you are preparing a meal in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a quest for love and affection.
If you are frying food in your dream, there is the constant risk of getting burned; the smoke billowing around your kitchen may be warning you that a problem could get worse if you avoid it or don’t deal with it. Cinders or a grate in your dream kitchen can represent ruined hopes as well as the potential of projects yet to be born.
If you dream of a kettle, even though its spout it is a symbol of male sexuality, it suggests that someone can get hurt if passions are not handled carefully. On the other hand, it could also indicate your present mood: steamed up and about to explode. At the other extreme, the image of a broken kettle may mirror feelings of emptiness, as if all zest for life has gone.
If you are cooking with pots and pans, the association is with male or female sexuality, depending on whether the pot or the handle is featured.
When a cup is seen to represent female sexuality, drinking out of it is erotic wish-fulfillment.
If it is hurled across a room by a man, it may express fear of, or anger towards, female sexuality; if by a woman, the dream suggests that the dreamer is using sex as a weapon. For Jungians, the cup is a homely symbol of the abundance of life’s opportunities; it is also a symbol of self-realization in that it is an echo of the Holy Grail. A full or overflowing cup often symbolizes excitement and new opportunities, but an empty or smashed cup indicates the opposite.
Cutlery in dreams may suggest a desire for domestic security or the taming of aggression. Spoons may have a similar symbolism to cups, but they can also represent a desire to be spoonfed. A teaspoon may be telling you to take things in one step at a time. A silver spoon may refer to someone you envy. A colander or sieve may be seen as standing for the process of developing a new outlook on life and sifting out unhelpful attitudes and ideas. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia
Recurrent dream themes often start at a young age, but can begin at any time, and persist for the rest of one’s life.
The theme of missing an exam, to take one example, commonly begins during college years, when the stress of performing well may be more intense than ever before. However, this theme may then carry forward as a recurring dream for many years, even as one moves on to a career.
The “missing the exam” dream may reappear the night before an important job interview or an evaluation at work.
The circumstances may change, but the same feelings of stress, and the desire to perform well, can trigger the relevant recurrent dream.
Theorists suggest that these themes may be considered “scripts” (Spoormaker, 2008) or perhaps “complexes” (Freud 1950); as soon as your dream touches any aspect of the theme, the full script unfolds in completion. Dream theorists generally agree that recurring dreams are connected to unresolved problems in the life of the dreamer. In a previous post I discussed the idea that dreams often portray a Central Image, a powerful dream image that contextualizes a certain emotion or conflict for the dreamer.
The Tidal Wave dream is an example of a Central Image that represents overwhelming emotions such as helplessness and fear.
The Tidal Wave dream is a common dream to experience following trauma or abuse, and often becomes a recurrent theme that reflects a person’s struggling with integrating and accepting the trauma. Resolution of this theme over time is a good sign that the trauma has been confronted and adaptively integrated in the psyche. Empirical research has also supported findings that resolution of a recurrent dream is associated with improved well-being (Zadra, 1996). This is one way that keeping track of your dreams can be extremely informative and helpful in a therapeutic, or even self-help, process.
Many people have the same or a similar dream many times, over either a short period of time or their lifetime. Recurring dreams usually mean there is something in your life you’ve not acknowledged that is causing stress of some sort.
The dream repeats because you have not corrected the problem. Another theory is that people who experience recurring dreams have some sort of trauma in their past they are trying to deal with. In this case, the dreams tend to lessen with time.
Nightmares are dreams that are so distressing they usually wake us up, at least partially. Nightmares can occur at any age but are seen in children with the most frequency. Nightmares usually cause strong feelings of fear, sadness or anxiety. Their causes are varied. Some medications cause nightmares (or cause them if you discontinue the medication abruptly). Traumatic events also cause nightmares.
Treatment for recurring nightmares usually starts with interpreting what is going on in the dream and comparing that with what is happening in the person’s life. Then, the person undergoes counseling to address the problems that are presumably causing the nightmare. Some sleep centers offer nightmare therapy and counseling. Another method of treating nightmares is through lucid dreaming. Through lucid dreaming, the dreamer can confront his or her attacker and, in some cases, end the nightmares....
