SALAD

1- Most food in dreams links with our need and abilitv to nurture ourselves and others. Particularly in a salad the colour will be important (see Colour) as also may the texture. We mav be short of some kind of nutrient or stimulus and the dream state has alerted us to this.

2- The ingredients in a salad can have significance individually.

It is also the synergy’ (energy crcated) between the components that is important.

If we register that we dislike what we are being offered it is worth considering whether we rejcct the whole dish or only part of it.

If we have created the salad for someone else in our dream, there is perhaps part of ourselves which needs attention more than the rest.

3- Salad, because it is food in its simplest sense, takes us right back to nature and simple values.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

HAIR

(see Body)

Personal strength (as with Samson).

Long hair: Equates to the wisdom and sagacity that comes through a long, well-lived life, especially if the color is gray. Alternatively, prosperity. In Asia, long hair was so valuable that it was used as currency.

Cutting: Drastic life changes. Many religious orders mark initiation rites through the cutting of hair, notably of monks and nuns (see Religions).

Power: In Tantric Oriental traditions, undoing the hair was a way to access the forces of creation and destruction. Also, in European folklore it was believed that a witch could increase the power of her spell by letting down her hair during its casting (see Incantation).

Consider the texture and style for further symbolic clues.

For example, hair brought up in a very tight bun reveals someone who is prim, sometimes to the point of restrictiveness. Disheveled hair, on the other hand, exposes confusion and a flurry of activity-. Dyed hair reveals someone concealing true thoughts, and greasy hair suggests a person with a “slick” disposition.

Baldness: Too much thought, or possibly a visual metaphor for “pulling your hair out.”

Being cut by a barber: x\ttention to details, and being meticulous in your efforts especially with regard to personal appearances.

Wigs: A false line of reasoning.... The Language of Dreams

FABRIC

Material aspects: In mundane parlance, fabric in dreams is a tactile representation of something we need to know or remember.

A rough fabric might denote a difficulty and a smooth fabric or material a carefully crafted project. Seeing fabric which has been mended or patched suggests that our original thoughts perhaps had an inherent flaw.

A patch of the same colour may be an attempt to cover this up, whereas one of a different fabric or texture highlights a perhaps innovative solution.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

CIRCUS

You are dreaming of running away from your responsibilities in life. Any form of entertainment must be considered symbolically as connecting to escapism. With a circus, the additional texture of enormity must be added. This symbol contains a surreal element as well, as exemplified by the strangeness of clowns and the oddities of the sideshow. Additionally, the circus has a reputation of catering to those on the fringes of society, a closed community that is secularized from the rest of the world.

The mythology that surrounds the circus is that it is a place where freaks, outsiders, and loners can find a home. In this way, the meaning of escapism also includes a fantasy element in which someone can literally escape the mundane world by running away with the circus.

If you were an audience member in the dream, then escapism should be the main theme of your interpretation.

If you were performing in a circus, you may be expressing some inner pull toward grandiose expressions of your sense of individuality and originality.

If you were more connected to what was going on behind the scenes and the community of performers, look to where in your life you may be seeking agreement from like-minded people in a realm that is off the beaten path.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

COCKATOO

All birds relate to the messenger function and also represent our thought process and the movement of ideas.

The cockatoo is less colorful than many of its brethren, so it relates to something more subdued, but still vibrant.

The traits that are most directly associated with this type of bird are a very strong beak and a loud, shrill voice. This adds the texture of harsh and strong communication to the symbolic meaning if this bird should appear in your dream.

FARM

A farm represents the production of food to provide nurturance through abundance on a large scale. Evoking images of serenity and simplicity, farms harken back to a connection to the land that is all but forgotten in our current culture and history. Working on a farm points to a call to action to dig deeper and take responsibility for getting your needs met. Owning a farm connects to how responsible you are to your self-nurturing and perhaps to the dependence of others upon you for such needs.

If you can eat only what you plant and tend, then farms connect to taking (or not taking) responsibility for your personal needs and how you get them addressed.

A specific farm crop could add some texture to your meaning.

A dairy farm might connect to emotional matters, maternal concerns, and thoughts around children.

A farm that slaughters animals suggests more substantial issues around taking care of sustenance. Slaughter and sacrifice relate to having to let go of something in order to receive something else and thereby achieve balance. An organic farm points to radical measures urging you toward a healthier approach to meeting your needs.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

FENCE

Fences mark the boundaries that we set in the world, and any dream that contains this symbol can reveal current issues as they relate to the boundaries in your life, both those that you set and those that are set for you by others.

The size of the fence and the material of which it is made add texture to any interpretation of a fence in a dream.

The more impenetrable the material is, the stronger the boundary is. Which side of a fence you are on in a dream will figure heavily in how you examine such a dream.

A flimsy wooden fence could indicate that you are too exposed, while a high concrete wall may indicate shutting the world out for fear of being vulnerable.

A break in a chainlink fence could indicate a weak spot in your ability to protect yourself in some area of your life.

If the fence contains barbed wire or some other harmful material, this could represent the consequences of taking the risk to shift boundaries in some life situation.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

MAIL

Your dream includes some sort of communication, perhaps something you anticipate hearing about. Our relationship to postal mail has changed greatly since the advent of e-mail.

It is now considered so slow that it is routinely referred to as “snail mail.” While our current perceptions of mail have changed, the essence of this symbol connects to the origins of mail and its impact on the world. Communication between two parties is symbolic of intellect and the inner process of deduction and decision-making.

The slow speed and back-and- forth nature of mail add the texture of anticipation. Putting a thought in writing connects to the permanence of a thought expressed. Mail in a dream could connect to communication that is slower than desired. Junk mail is akin to anxiety and the background chatter in the mind, where information like an important letter can get lost in a pile of unwanted catalogs.

A dream could connect to the need to ferret through the unimportant to find clarity. Since the majority of mail comprises bills to be paid, this might symbolize being put on notice for the price you will have to pay for some choice in life.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

SWIMMING

You are navigating the waters of your own emotional journey. Water represents the emotional realm of our feelings, both conscious and unconscious. Swimming is specifically about progress and making your way through the emotional territory in your life.

The effort of propelling yourself forward is completely self-motivated and generated exclusively by your own body. This reveals how effectively or ineffectively you are pushing yourself through an emotional challenge in your life.

The ease, pace, and depth of your swim offer a great deal of texture for you to investigate.

The harder you have to work, the more effort is required to arrive at your destination of emotional growth. How fast you are moving will inform you of the speed of the process you are undergoing.

The level of immersion communicates the emotional territory through which you are traveling; being on the surface reflects the emotions you are aware of, whereas swimming underwater implies deeper feelings that reside in your unconscious mind.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

PROBLEMS WITH CLOTHING

Clothing that is incongruous to the situation might be a comment on your view of your position in society. Have you found your proper place? Are you comfortable with it? Inadequate, untidy or inappropriate clothing that makes you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed indicates that you feel uncomfortable or ill prepared to fit in with people’s expectations. Are you deliberately not conforming to what is expected of you, or are you trying too hard to adopt a certain role?

Clothing that is too tight, too small or dating back to childhood suggests that something about your current attitude or approach is holding you back. It may also suggest that you are aiming for more than you can achieve in the present circumstances. For Freudians, tight clothing may indicate a preoccupation with the breasts and buttocks whose shape they reveal. The dreamer wearing loose clothing may be attempting to conceal their true self, but it may also represent a yearning to be free of inhibitions.

If you are wearing formal clothes when everyone else is dressed casually, perhaps you have ideas above your station; alternatively, the dream may be a warning against snobbery. On the other hand, being sloppily dressed in a formal setting may be suggesting that your behavior is damaging your prospects. It is also common to dream about being unable to find a suitable outfit or searching frantically for appropriate clothes; such dreams reflect anxiety about being adequately prepared to meet the obligations and demands placed upon you.

Dreamers dressed in shabby clothes, rags or clothes that have rips and tears may be projecting an image of inferiority or low self- esteem, and the dream may be a warning to build their confidence. A dream of a jumper, cardigan or other woolen garment unraveling may indicate a growing sense of disillusionment with some aspect of your waking life. The unraveling may be a sign that it is time to look to a new direction for inspiration.

If you are aware in your dream of a problem with your clothing, this is a positive sign as it suggests that you are already aware of tensions that are affecting you in waking life.

If you are unaware that you are dressed inappropriately and only notice this on waking, your unconscious is pointing to the source of feelings you have not yet understood. Finally, if you dream that you are wearing clothes remarkably different from your normal wardrobe, the implication is that you are ill at ease with your self-image. The color, style and texture of your clothes may be able to tell you which area of your life needs to be remolded.... The Element Encyclopedia

FABRICS AND FASTENINGS

The texture and feel of your dream clothes can be important.

If the fabric is irritating or uncomfortable, this may suggest that a part of your waking life is also uncomfortable; for example, a person, a place or a job. Leather, silk and chiffon are all regarded as sensual fabrics because they titillate the senses with their feel and aroma; as a result, they may have sexual connotations in a dream. They are also prized fabrics and their inclusion in dreams may reflect a dual longing in the dreamer to be perceived as a cut above the rest and to enjoy a luxurious life.

Man-made fabrics like nylon, polyester or plastic in the dream world point out that someone’s appearance or persona (maybe your own) is false or limited. These fabrics can also be itchy, so if they cause you problems in your dream world, can you draw a parallel with someone, or something, irritating you in waking life? Or is your itchiness self-inflicted by your choice of clothes when other options are available?

Freudians, of course, see fur as a symbol for pubic hair and dreams in which you are enveloped in soft fur indicate a desire to return to the comfort and security of the womb.

If you are wearing ermine, this is a symbol of moral purity and probity—ermine traditionally lines the robes of royalty and judges. Wearing ermine in your dream may therefore suggest a longing for childhood innocence, or delusions of grandeur.

Tartan is, for most people, associated with the kilt and traditional Scottish male dress so when it appears in a dream it may evoke images of robust virility. For Jungians, a woman dreaming of a man wearing a kilt may represent the animus, the masculine aspects of the female psyche, from which the dreamer may draw inspiration and power.

If you ripped off buttons on your blouse and shirt in your dream, then perhaps you have been too buttoned-up in waking life, to the extent that your unconscious is urging you to relax and reveal the real you. Dreams about loosening your belt or necktie may also suggest a release from pressures in waking life. By contrast, if you tightened your belt, laces, sash or ribbon, your unconscious may be urging you to economize or tighten up in some way.

If your dream homed in on a zipper, do you long to have more energy or thrills in your life, or should you keep your thoughts to yourself as if to zip it up? Releasing buttons or a zip may refer to a need for relaxation or a desire to develop an easier relationship with another person. On the other hand, if your zipper got stuck and you couldn’t move it in your dream however hard you tugged at it, do you feel trapped by responsibility and routine, and long for release?...

GEMSTONE

Because of the different colors in gemstones and the different things associated with them, they can all have slightly different meanings when they appear in dreams.

If a specific gemstone or precious stone appears in your dream, try to work out what that stone means to you. Was it your birth stone or the birth stone of someone you know? You should also consider its color. The texture and any associations or myths connected should also help with your interpretation. It would be impossible to list all precious and semiprecious gemstones, but the following associations with some of the most well-known gemstones should give you some guidelines regarding interpretation; but please note that it is always worth your while to do your own research.

Purple has long been considered a royal color so it is not surprising that amethyst has been so much in demand during history. Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty. Amethyst, transparent purple quartz, is the most important quartz variety used in jewelry. Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence, and in dreams the appearance of amethyst suggests healing and transcendence. The gemstone is also a symbol of sobriety and remorse, due to the legend of the origin of amethyst. Dionysus, the god of intoxication, was angered one day by an insult from a mere mortal and swore revenge on the next mortal that crossed his path, creating fierce tigers to carry out his wish. Along came unsuspecting Amethyst, a beautiful young maiden on her way to pay tribute to the goddess Diana. Diana turned Amethyst into a stature of pure crystalline quartz to protect her from the brutal claws of the tigers. Dionysus wept tears of wine in remorse for his action at the sight of the beautiful statue. The god’s tears stained the quartz purple, creating the gem we know today.

Diamond is the symbol of incorruptibility, integrity, perfection and wisdom, so if you dream of it, these may be themes that would repay further investigation in your interpretation. But your dream may also be hinting that you need to look at various facets of a problem. There is also the association with human greed. As a symbol of fertility and regeneration, emerald in dreams suggests personal growth and a connection with the natural in life. The green of the emerald is the color of life and of the springtime, which comes round again and again. But emerald is also the traditional color of beauty and of constant love. In ancient Rome, green was the color of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love. In dreams, emerald can convey harmony, love of Nature and elemental joie de vivre.

According to Chinese legend, jade is the sperm of the Celestial dragon that fell to earth; it therefore represents a union between heaven and earth. In the West, jade is more likely to bear the symbolism of its color green. It may also appear in dream word-play. Is there something in your waking life about which you feel jaded and would like to change? In gemstone therapy, it is said that jade stimulates creativity and mental agility on the one hand, whilst also having a balancing and harmonizing effect

A symbol of the inner world of fantasies and dreams, opal stands for intuitive awareness. All of nature’s splendor seems to be reflected in the manifold opulence of fine opals: fire and lightning, all the colors of the rainbow and the soft shine of far seas. Almost ninety-five per cent of all fine opals come from the dry and remote outback deserts of Australia. For ages, people have believed in the healing power of opals. It is reported to be able to cure depression and to help its wearer find true and lasting love. The fantastic color- play of opals may reflect changing emotions and moods; either your own or of the people around you. For example, the sparkling images of boulder opal, the vivid light flashes of black opal or the soft shine of milk opal characterize the colorful world of this fascinating gemstone.

Rubies are a symbol of emotion, passion, empathy and reaching out to others. The most important characteristic about this valuable stone is its color. There is of course a reason for this: the name ‘Ruby’ was derived from the Latin word ‘rubens’, meaning ‘red’. The red of rubies is in a class of its own, being peculiarly warm and fiery. Two magical elements are associated with the symbolism of this color: fire and blood, implying warmth and life for mankind. In the light of this, ruby-red is not just any old color red; it is the epitome of the color: hot, passionate and powerful. Like no other gemstone, ruby is the perfect symbol of powerful feelings. To dream of a ring set with a precious ruby does not symbolize a calm and moderate sympathy that one might feel for someone else, but rather the passionate and unbridled love which two people feel for each other.

Sapphires are symbols of hope, joy and aspiration, and blue is the color most often association with this precious stone. This color is also linked to emotions such as sympathy and harmony, friendship and loyalty. These emotions are permanent and reliable—they are emotions in which overwhelming and fiery passion is not the main element, but rather composure, mutual understanding and unshakeable trust. Sapphire blue has thus become a color related to anything permanent and reliable, and this is one of the reasons why women in many countries settle on sapphire for their engagement rings. Sapphire symbolizes loyalty and faithfulness, whilst at the same time expressing love and yearning.

The most famous musical example for this melancholic shade of blue can be found in George Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’. Sapphire’s blue color is also evoked where clear competence and controlled brainwork are the issue. After all, the first computer ever to wrangle a victory from a chess grandmaster and world champion was named ‘Deep Blue’.

In many cultures of the Old and New World turquoise has for thousands of years been appreciated as a holy stone, a good-luck charm or a talisman. In Asia and Europe, turquoise is often worn as protection against the evil eye and its exquisite shade of blue is associated with heaven. In dreams it can represent healing and higher aspirations....

FRUIT DIRECTORY

When you see fruit in a dream, it usually refers to readiness, financial gain and sexuality, as well as suggesting that you are going through a time of personal growth. The type and condition of the fruit that appears in your dream will influence its meaning. Ripe fruit, for example, is associated with lush and rewarding experiences, rich with promise for the future (because fruits are full of seeds).

If you see fruit that is green, or not yet ripened, it may refer to a certain hastiness that you may be displaying in waking life, as well as failed attempts to achieve a goal. More hard work for a longer period of time is suggested.

If rotting or bitter fruit is seen in a dream, it may suggest that you are missing out on a wealth of opportunities that are available to you. You are essentially hindering your growth and the amount of pleasure you could experience. A fruit pip may represent something that is capable of major growth. A pip sound may symbolize detection or communication. It could also suggest defeating somebody by a small margin, pipping them at the post.

Fruits have connotations other than just reward in dreams and when interpreting a dream that highlighted a particular fruit, it is important to take into account its shape, texture, and freshness as your unconscious may have selected it to reflect your sexuality. A dream of fruit can often have sexual connotations because the food is sweet, juicy and delicious. In ancient times, fruits were considered symbols of feminine fertility because of their seeds. As a result of the influence of Freud certain fruits—especially the banana—are considered phallic symbols. The banana is associated with masculine virility on account of its shape, so a ripe banana may indicate a man who is at his sexual peak. Soft and curvaceous fruits like melons, apples and peaches have been compared to female breasts or the child-bearing womb, so if you are a man taking a bite out of a juicy melon, could this mirror your desire to become more intimate with a woman? If you were a woman eating a shriveled apple in your dream, could this echo a regret for the loss of youth? Numerous cultures have also associated round, seed-packed fruits with the fruitfulness of the womb, so if you are a woman hoping to conceive in waking life, dreaming of eating a pomegranate could reflect your wishes. Fruit is also thought to symbolize immortality and it is easy to see why; its seeds signify the beginnings of life, leading to ripe fruit from which seed again springs, making the cycle begin all over again....
