When dreams focus on your abdomen, belly or stomach, they are referring to repressed feeling and emotions. The stomach is often seen as the center of emotions. This symbol may also have purely physiological origins if you have been experiencing constipation or indigestion. From a psychological point of view, seeing your abdomen in your dream may imply something in your real life that you ‘cannot stomach’ or have difficulties accepting, something you want to get out of your system.
If your abdomen is exposed, this signifies trust and vulnerability, and in women it may indicate a desire for motherhood.
If you are injured or shot in the stomach, this is about emotional hurt. Traditional folklore says that dreaming of your abdomen can foretell infidelity. A shriveled abdomen warns of lies, a swollen abdomen promises success. To see your navel in your dream represents your being and self. The dream may suggest that you need to find your center and middle ground.... The Element Encyclopedia

You may have had a dream in which a ringing telephone urged you to pick up the receiver.
If this was the case, who was calling and what did they have to say to you? In both dreams and waking life, telephones are symbols of communication telling you that someone wants to communicate something to you, so perhaps your unconscious is trying to tell you something.
If you picked up the telephone and heard nothing but abuse, this signals guilt about some issue in your waking life.
If the phone rang in your dreams and you picked it up but no one was there, could your dreaming mind have been urging you to remember something or someone, as in ’ringing a bell’? Hearing a doorbell in your dream indicates something new coming into your life; this can be negative or positive, depending on the dream. It could also suggest the desire to hear from someone or make contact with them.
The ringing of an alarm clock in a dream indicates the need to get up and do something; it may also be a reminder of something or someone you have neglected. The ringing of a school bell, or the timer on a cooker, kettle or any kitchen appliance in a dream may also be prompting you to move forward with an idea or gain a new experience in the world. In real life, loud alarms—such as sirens, or fire, burglar, smoke or car alarms—warn us of impending threat and danger, and they do the same in dreamland. Perhaps your unconscious has noticed that your front door is not properly closed or that your car is vulnerable to theft. Alternatively, your unconscious may have been warning you about an overheated situation in your waking life, such as loss of control, invasion of privacy or an impending crisis.
Other sounds that are clear symbols of warning in your dreams include whistles blown by teachers, police officers or referees, the growling of angry dogs or the horns on cars, ships or trains. Such sounds may also indicate that you are defying authority figures in some way; there may have been an allusion to whistleblowing, drawing your attention to a transgression of some kind, either your own or someone you know? Alternatively, the growling of a dog could have suggested that you or someone you know are about to unleash their anger on the world in some way. Air-raid sirens are associated with the fear and pain of World War II and in dreams may express fear of the unknown or longing for old comradeship.... The Element Encyclopedia

Money in dreams represents things of great value to you, but such dreams are not necessarily about monetary value.
For Jung, money is a symbol of the power required to achieve spiritual objectives. According to Freud, it is a symbol of an orderly or obsessive personality.
If symbols associated with money, riches and wealth—such as cash, precious jewels, treasure, expensive houses and cars, and winning lottery tickets—appear in your dreams, try to identify what money means to you in a non- materialistic sense. That this symbol appears in your dreams suggests that you need to assess what is important to you in life, as well as being aware of what price you are prepared to pay for your actions and desires.
It may be that gold does not represent the precious metal to you, but rather someone who has a heart of gold or who is a winner, just as a dream of treasure might represent the people you love in your life, a wealth of knowledge or a treasury of ideas. Do you associate money with freedom, power, desirability or your own personal worth? Do you believe that money can buy you happiness? Thinking about such questions should help you identify the things you really value in your waking life and you may in turn start to question the real value of your previous goals and aspirations.

(Bonesetter) An orthopedist who corrects skeletal deformities and sets broken bones in a dream represents a pious governor who governs with justice, teaches righteousness, balances substances and conforms to equanimity. Seeing an orthopedist in a dream also means presumptuousness, might and audacity. He also represents officiousness, adroitness and resoluteness, for he discards the deficient and brings together what is broken. Seeing an orthopedist in a dream also means distress and trouble. He also represents an architect, and an architect represents an orthopedist in a dream. Thus, seeing him in a dream also means construction and could represent a generous person who comforts, accommodates and helps a needy person, or a wise man who comforts the broken hearts, ajust judge, a great scholar, a shoe repairman, or a tailor. Ifone sees himself standing before an orthopedist in a dream because of a broken bone or another fracture and then complains about an abscess in his neck, and if the orthopedist opens that abscess with pliers to drain the puss in the dream, then it represents a debt one has to repay, or a votive offering one has to fulfill, or it could mean giving a testimony in court, or accepting the ruling of a scholar. Ifan orthopedist sets one’s broken right arm and ties it to his neck in a dream, it means that someone will oblige him to do him a personal favor and consequently deprive him from attending other duties, or restrain him from serving other charities.

In dreams, shops suggest what you want or think you need in waking life.
If you are in a shop you know, then you are aware of what you want from life, but if it is an unfamiliar shop, then you need to open your mind to new possibilities.
Shops and stores are places of interaction, whether this is the exchange of money and goods, or the communication between the salesperson and the shopper. In dreams, they therefore represent things you desire in life and the manner in which you go about getting these things. A supermarket, for instance, suggests a wide range of choices, a village store represents the essential things in life, whilst a store or website selling a range of odds and ends—such as an antiques store, an auction site on the Internet or even a car-boot sale—suggests the small details of everyday life that are often overlooked. Your dream may be urging you to pay attention to these.
If your dream was quite mundane and you saw yourself doing your weekly grocery shop, then your dreaming mind may simply have been processing a memory or reminding you that you need to go shopping. Alternatively, such a dream may be suggesting that you are taking good care of your basic emotional needs. If, however, you had a dream in which you could not decide what to buy, this may be referring to some kind of confusion or indecision in waking life.
If someone you know in your dream transformed into a sales assistant, your dreaming mind may have been commenting on the emotional cost of your relationship with them.
Bear in mind, too, that whilst stores, supermarkets and shopping malls are places of opportunity and choice, they also threaten potential exclusion and humiliation if you do not possess the necessary funds; your feelings about going on your dream shopping trip should indicate whether or not you are feeling empowered or denied in your waking life.
If you dream that a shop is closed or that you have insufficient money, this may indicate that you feel the things you want from life are unattainable. Your dream may be telling you to lower your expectations and set more realistic goals. Finally, if your idea of heaven is to go on an exclusive shopping trip and spend loads of cash in luxury stores, then a dream of having a day doing just that may be simple wish-fulfillment....

For most of us shopping is not simply a necessity but a favorite pastime.
It is a source of pain, pleasure, recreation, and, at times, “quality time” with family or friends. Depending on the details in the dream and its emotional background, dreaming about going shopping may have several different connotations. Generally, if shopping in your dream is not a source of great stress and confusion, it suggests that those things which you need are available to you. Your environment may have readily available emotional, psychological, spiritual or physical support. However, you may need to learn exactly where to look, how to select what you need, and when to make a wise investment. This dream calls upon you to know yourself.

Shopping often represents the possibilities in life, the decisions you can make, the variety of attitudes or activities from which you can choose, or something for which you are searching. The image of shopping presents a view of your life’s prospects and opportunities; it also represents the exchanges you are prepared to make to satisfy your desires. What you are shopping for may be relevant.
If you are shopping for food, you need sustenance but if you are shopping for clothes, you need protection. How much you buy in your dream may indicate your ability to take advantage of opportunities.
Not finding the item you want or discovering that the store has sold out of it may express frustration at not getting what you want out of life. A much- reported shopping dream involves the panic at closing time. Not being able to buy all you want before the shops close suggests anxiety that life is too short to achieve all your ambitions. Shop windows are symbols of opportunities in waking life that may be out of reach. The image may evoke frustration or envy that you are missing out on the good things in life, but it can also remind you that you still have the choice to seek out more accessible and affordable items....

Women and teenagers tend to have this kind of dream more often than men or children, and the theme for these dreams tends to be choice and identity, and the ability to stay true to yourself whilst also satisfying the needs of others.
