The meaning of Hoax in dream | Dream interpretation
To be aware of a hoax, even a harmless one, in your dream indicates that you will be obligated to explain some past action which you assumed had been either unnoticed or forgotten.
A hoax is a deliberately created illusion and spiritually suggests that we may be fooling ourselves.
An action that we consider to be spiritual may actually be self-centred or negative.
Psychological / emotional perspective: In dreams to become conscious of a hoax suggests that we do not trust our ability to sort out the real from the unreal.
If we often find ourselves the butt of practical jokes in waking life our dreams may enable us to deal with this with humour.
Material aspects: In practical terms a hoax is a deliberately engineered set of circumstances, which has no basis in truth. We may dream of such a thing when we are dissatisfied with circumstances in our lives. We may need to make radical changes in order to be true to ourselves.
