The meaning of Touch in dream | Dream interpretation

For example, it could mean healing. On some rare occasions, it could represent a curse of some sort. At other times, it can mean comfort and security.

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

In dreams, touch suggests making contact in some way or the need to reach out to someone or something. Your dream may be drawing your attention to your need for other people and their need for you. The transference of power and responsibility can also be signified by the act of touching in dreams, so perhaps you are about to take on new responsibilities in real life. In general though, being aware of touching or being touched in dreams suggests intimacy, contact or a linking up with something. You may also have touched feelings or drives that are shocking you into action.

If, in your dream, you are surrounded by people or things but do not feel touched or held, this suggests emotional inhibition and an inability to reach out or express your need for others.

If you are actively avoiding being touched in your dream, this suggests hidden anger or aggression towards someone in your life. Touching is also a means of communicating feelings or intentions to others and it may have the same meaning in your dream.

If something is hard to the touch in your dreams, this suggests lack of feeling or response, or emotional difficulties in real life. If, by contrast, something is soft to the touch, this suggests a desire for comfort and love or the ability to self-comfort. It may recall memories of a soft toy you had as a child, or a non-threatening emotional relationship that can be controlled by you.

If you dream that you are missing one of your five senses, it is a strong signal that you feel out of control in a real life situation. You may feel you don’t have the capability to handle a certain situation you’re in, or you may feel out of touch with reality in some way.

If you dream that one of your senses is heightened (extra strong), you will triumph in a difficult situation.... My Dream Interpretation

The Bedside Dream Dictionary


Being aware of, becoming conscious; meeting and becoming intimate; contacting. Touching also sometimes shows a linking up with something, as when a person touches a power line and gets shocked. This suggests we have ‘touched’ feelings or drives which are a shock to us.

Example: ‘Now I sit on a bed. Near me, looking at a book I am holding is a woman I know. I realise as we talk that her foot is touching mine. As my wife is on my left across the room I feel uncomfortable about this. Now the woman has her left hand on my penis.’ (Anthony B). Often directly or indirectly sexual, as in the example.

The absence of touching in otherwise intimate scene: can suggest lack of ability to rcach out or express one’s needs for contact; a passive attitude in which you want the other person, or a more automatic aspect of oneself, to take responsibility and risks.

Active avoidance of touching: as illustrated in the following example, shows feelings of anger.

The anger may be passive, but such avoidance of contact is as vicious as hitting.

The dreamer moves towards a healthier state by expressing her anger. Example: ‘My husband came over to me with his arm out to touch me but I was so angry I put my arm up to shield myself from his touch and then began to throw things at him to express how angry I was feeling’ (Susie R).

Example: The man was so superior in his attitude, and patronisingly arrogant about the lost children, that I cursed him with a touch, saying “May you lose children of your own” ‘ (Albie G). Touching is also a means of communicating our emotions or intentions. This can be love, anger, sympathy or, as with Albie. a statement which attempts to break down insularity. Albie’s dream also shows another aspect of touch­ing, which is its use to produce a change. Albie wanted to leave a mark, make a change in the man, who is an aspect of himself. Idioms: get in touch; keep in touch; lose touch, lose one’s touch, out of touch, touch and go, touch someone, touched up, touch something off, touch upon, common touch; Midas touch; touch bottom; soft touch, touch wood. ...

My Dream Interpretation


If you had a dream in which you express your affection physically (a kiss, a hand squeeze or a reassuring touch) with no ulterior motive, your dreaming mind is drawing your attention to warm and positive feelings in your life, either coming from yourself towards someone or coming from someone to you. A dream of massage could symbolize your yearning for greater emotional and physical intimacy in waking life. Alternatively, enjoying or giving a massage in your dream may also suggest that you are feeling relaxed and happy in a relationship, or that you need to take some time out to relax, unwind and pamper yourself....
