This is a wonderful, peaceful, quiet dream, and sometimes even romantic. This may be a sign that you may need more peace and quiet in your daily life. Or maybe the dream is telling you that you are very fortunate because in real life you are living in an earthly paradise. The idea of paradise is found in all cultures. We can define it as a spiritual state of absolute bliss and balance that we want to reach.
Dreaming of paradise can denote a longing to enjoy a charmed life with little work and responsibilities. Just like the umbrella, it is a clear sign of immaturity, as you tend to get carried away by laziness and fantasy.

Paralysis To dream of paralysis indicates an unwillingness to make certain commitments to society and yourself. A lack of confidence in your own potential leads to you stop acting and feel progressively paralyzed. Because of this state of mind, in your dreams you appear unable to move and, thus, decide for yourself.
If you dream that it is others who are paralyzed, they can represent those aspects of yourself that you do not externalize. Similarly, if you dream of a paralyzed animal, it can refer to your instincts and inhibited sexual feelings.
There is a belief that claims that nightmares are huge spirits that sit on top of us while we sleep. Thus the feeling of paralysis is explained. In olden days, in Europe, the solution for nightmares was to sleep with a knife beside the bed because the spirits feared iron and steel.
To dream that you are in Paradise, means loyal friends, who are willing to aid you. This dream holds out bright hopes to sailors or those about to make a long voyage.
To mothers, this means fair and obedient children.
If you are sick and unfortunate, you will have a speedy recovery and your fortune will ripen.
To lovers, it is the promise of wealth and faithfulness.
To dream that you start to Paradise and find yourself bewildered and lost, you will undertake enterprises which look exceedingly feasible and full of fortunate returns, but which will prove disappointing and vexatious.

(1) Paradise may represent a desire to return to the innocent problem- free simplicity of early childhood.
However, this is wrongheaded, because it is unrealistic. The garden of Eden prior to Adam’s ‘fall’ represents the oneness and harmony of all things when all things are still unconscious. With the rise of conscious thinking, distinctions and dilemmas arise, and the agonizing ‘Should I do this or that?’ (= Adam’s eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil). A desire to return to childhood in a dream is neurotic: in it reality has been ousted by fantasy - because reality was too painful. What particular reality’ (i.e. experience) are you trying to blot out?
(2) A more realistic option is that paradise represents a desire to achieve in the psyche the balance and wholeness that have been present latently and potentially from the beginning.
(3) If your dream contains, not just a paradisal feeling, but an actual physical representation of the garden of Eden (e.g. with four rivers dividing it into four quarters), this may be an instance of (2) above. See also Mandala.
