To dream that a loved one dies in an accident indicates that something in your own self is no longer functional, and is ‘dead’. It is also symbolic of your own relationship with that person. Perhaps you need to let go of this relationship, or let go of a particular phase in that relationship and move towards the next. For example, the first throes of passion may have ebbed away, but you can replace them with love, stability and commitment.... The Element Encyclopedia
The most common type of nightmare or bad dream is the one in which you are being chased or hunted down by something or someone. According to Jung, being chased or stalked as prey is a primal memory of your human collective unconscious and may refer to early times in the history of humankind when it was common to be chased, often to the death, by an animal.
If you are being chased in your dream it is important to think about who or what was chasing you, and then ask yourself whether there is anyone or anything in your life that reminds you of your pursuer.... The Element Encyclopedia

(Animal bones; Money) Seeing animal bones in a dream means a new garment, one’s capital, or a major event. Collected animal bones in a dream signify owning a shop, a house, or a real estate.
If a poor person sees bones in his dream, they denote his piety and fulfillment of his religious duties. Bones in a dream also represent one’s helpers, family, wife, children, vehicles and properties. Seeing one’s bones in a dream means exposing one’s secrets.
If one sees his bones turned ivory in a dream, it means that his wealth is gathered from unlawful money. Bones also could represent trees and their fruits, while their marrow represents one’s good character or knowledge. Bones in a dream also denote one’s fitness or sickness.
Bones in dreams represent the basic structure of core beliefs. They may symbolize the legacy of your ancestral roots. Bones represent death and decay and thus may point to a symbolic death or a dismembering of your personality. Bones may also be dug up in a dream in order to reveal feelings of grief around a significant loss or the death of a friend or relative.... Ariadne's Book of Dream
Vision: Looking at one or more bones: hard times are ahead— you are going to be “working your fingers to the bone.” Chewing on a bone: you might lose your job; it also means real worries that there won’t be enough to eat because of a lack of money. Throwing a bone to a dog: you are worried about someone and are actively helping that person—but your reward will be ingratitude. See Skeleton.
Depth Psychology: The bone is a warning about becoming hard and emotionally “fossilized.” The dream also suggests being less rigid, not holding on so fiercely to old attitudes or social norms.... Dreamers Dictionary
Bones are one of the integral parts of man, or indeed of most creatures. Spiritually, they represent structure and the basic building material of the physical realm. They often hold the key to our ideas of death and resurrection.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
Material aspects: Bones appearing in a dream usually indicate that we need to be aware of fundamental material. We need to ‘go back to basics’.
To dream of a dog eating a bone means we need to consider our natural instincts.
To dream of finding bones indicates that there is something essential we have not considered in a situation. You might like to consult the entries for limbs in body as well as the entry for skeleton / skull.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
You are trying to connect with the underlying structure of things in your life and how you are being supported.
The skeleton at the core of our bodies is the foundation on which the whole system is built. Since most of the human body is soft and moist, we rely on the solid, durable, calcium-based bone structure for what little solidity we feel. Nothing can be any stronger than the foundation that supports it. This foundational structure is normally invisible to us, so to be dreaming of bones is to be getting a glimpse of issues that are normally hidden but are now visible. Old bones might connect to issues in your past.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
Dreams of a breakdown signify that you are in the midst of major transformation, processing your way through the changes in your life, and breaking out of a pattern or identity that no longer fits you.

You are dreaming of a loss to the foundational integrity of some aspect of your life. Bones as foundational elements indicate that the essence of the stressor that is being expressed has to do with how something is structured or being supported.
If you dream of a bone being broken, it tells you that some area of your life is on shaky ground.
The solidity or strength beneath that which is creative or expressive is what is compromised.
If your dream included the injury itself, add the means by which your bones were broken to your interpretation, including if there was another person responsible.
The more creative you are with your rumination of these symbolic meanings, the more successful your interpretation will be.

If you hear a message in a dream which you know to be important but simply cannot understand, even if it is in your own language, this is a clear symbol of frustration in waking life. A similar scenario would be if you are trying to explain something to someone but cannot make yourself understood. Both dreams speak of times in your life when, for some reason, communication is blocked, or you are misreading the emotions of someone or they are misreading you.
If you dream that you have muddled your words, this suggests a vain struggle to attract the attention of someone in your dream. The inability to say the right words when you meet them may symbolize feelings of inadequacy in real life or a deep sense of frustration that the important people in your life, or the people you respect and admire, do not appreciate or even notice you. One of the most distressing scenarios in a dream is when you try to talk or cry out but have no voice.
If you have such a dream, try to work out who is not hearing you in waking life; do you need to listen more and give your voice a rest?
Tripping up in public, forgetting your words when giving a speech, treading on someone’s toes in a dance, or spilling food and drink over a VIP can all betray a deep sense of social inadequacy, even with regard to people close to you. Perhaps your ineptitude masks an element of defiance, expressing your feelings of frustration with the stifling rules and norms of social convention.
If someone you know appears in a dream but you find yourself unable to recognize them, this suggests feelings of frustration or ambivalence towards that person in waking life. A similar sense is conveyed if you are looking on as a spy whilst a friend or lover commits a crime, or an illicit or compromising act.... The Element Encyclopedia
To dream of cross-bones, foretells you will be troubled by the evil influence of others, and prosperity will assume other than promising aspects.
To see cross-bones as a monogram on an invitation to a funeral, which was sent out by a secret order, denotes that unnecessary fears will be entertained for some person, and events will transpire seemingly harsh, but of good import to the dreamer. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation
Many dream analysts believe that when a specific stone, jewel, mineral, metal or rock is highlighted in your dream, it represents the self or the core, unique part of yourself that is charged with personal significance.
According to Freud, rocks and stones are obvious phallic symbols on account of their hardness. The appearance of rocks, stones and metals in dreams for Jungians, however, has a different interpretation inspired by Jung’s interest in alchemy. Alchemy is the ancient art of transmuting base metals into gold but it is not just about this transformation. It can also be viewed as a system of self- initiation. Jung was amazed to find that the images and operations he encountered in old alchemy texts related strongly to his theories of psychoanalysis and the unconscious. He saw in alchemy a metaphor for the process of individuation or personal transformation, and the morphing and mutating imagery of that process which emerges from the stream of consciousness. For Jungians, therefore, the appearance of rocks, stones, metals and jewels in dreams are potent and powerful symbols of a person’s basic nature, heart and soul, and of their potential for personal transformation.

1- To dream of our own death is to be exploring our own feelings about death; the retreat from the challenge of life or the split between mind and body. Leaving the body is frequently an expression of this breach between the ego and life processes.
2- One’s own death can often be used in dreams to explore others’ feelings about us.
3- Death is a transition from an awareness of the gross physical to the more spiritual self.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
Example: ‘1 look down and the stairs and bannister rail are swarming alive with a black moving wave of crawling things, like some awful insects; and in the hallway is a swamp with crocodiles and other hideous things. My terror is terrible and I cry out to stop dreaming this nightmare.
The person who actually lived in this part of the house was the owner’s mother. She treated me badly but no one knew as she was artful in her abuse. She pulled me along by my hair, locked me in a cupboard, and once locked me in the orchard—four high walls and a hidden door’ (Rita). Something below us: as in Rita’s dream, where there is fear, it can depict past trauma which is not being faced (literally run away from); something we have left behind or we feel ‘above*.
Descent, going down stairs or in a lift: getting more down to eanh or practical; a return to difficulties after living in our fantasies or escapism, depression; sexual restraint; a return from meta conception (see aura). Descending into cave, cellar, hole: awareness of unconscious content, experience of womb existence. Example: Then I was climbing down a steep hill. Arriving at the foot I found rippling sparkling water. I stopped and looked around and found everything incredibly beautiful—the green fields and the pebbles in the water, the soft fresh air, then I looked up and the sky was a glorious picture, the sun so warm and the clouds fluffy and soft and pretty. I felt at peace and so happy, and thanked God with all my heart for giving us so much beauty’ (Mrs RE). Going down a hill: can mean loss of status, ageing, failure or death, but is also, as shown in the example, a positive sense of life after death. Idioms: feel down; down and out, down in the dumps; down to earth. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

In this world that is divided into binary code, there are always two options in any polarity.

Our ears are the sense organs over which we are able to exert the least amount of control. Sound enters the ears from all angles, even though they are constructed for directional optimization.
The ears are open and vulnerable to all outside stimuli unless impacted by an external object.

This is where the element of escapism becomes an important consideration of the meaning attached to this symbol.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

The central self; the core of your being.
Being hard-hearted or having a stony disposition.
A place of origin; beginnings with foundation. Ancient beliefs contended that humankind was born of stone, which is one of the reasons why uniquely shaped stones or those with unusual markings were worshipped as goddesses.
A rolling stone: By gathering no moss, the stone (representative of self) keeps progressing along its path. Hie caution here is not moving so fast that valuable lessons get left by the wayside.
Standing stones: Indicative of nature worship and earth religions. This may reveal an interest in same, or an urge to get closer to the land. This can also be an alternative circle, cross, or wheel emblem, depending on the stones’ configuration.
