Thread This is one of the most ancient symbols of humanity. The thread represents the essential connection on the spiritual, social, biological planes, etc. Because of this, you can interpret the thread as the chain of circumstances that happen in your life, making up your destiny. So dreaming of thread that doesn’t end predicts health and many years of life. On the contrary, if it is broken, it announces illness or physical problems. The same interpretation is applicable to your emotional relationships or job. Threads of noble metals, such as gold or silver, predict success earned thanks to intelligence and subtlety.
