People in a dream, usually represent how you see, perceive and feel about the different aspects of yourself.  People are in fact a reflection. The are the mirror of how you see yourself and the world around you. Sometimes you are dreaming of another person, but it still generally will speak to you and your opinion of and your relationship with this person.

In your dream, what types of people are present? Are these people friends or strangers? What role do they play? Consider that they are there to show you aspects of yourself that need to be examined. What do you notice about them? Do you notice their clothes? Do you notice their manner or actions, or the way they make you feel?

If you dream the people are your friends or friendly, you are at peace with yourself. You are open to relationships and trust other people. If you are in a group of people and you feel intimidated by them or you feel that you are not welcome, this would indicate that you do not readily accept parts of yourself. You may feel uncomfortable in your own skin.  It can also speak to a lack of trust of others. If you dream people are out to get to you, this indicates that in your waking life you sabotage yourself and possibly blame others for your own shortcomings.

People can be helpful or people can be hurtful. Are the people talking or interacting with you? Are the people ignoring or snubbing you? When you dream people are talking to you it means that you have the ability to look at yourself in an honest way and you are communicative.  If you dream that people are deceiving you, it means that you are lying to your self about something or that you are not willing to face a reality.

If you dream of meeting new, foreign or exotic people, you are discovering new aspects and new depths of yourself hitherto unknown.  You are meeting a new part of yourself, perhaps discovering a strength or attribute you didn’t know you had. If you are prejudiced against the people in your dreams, it means that are afraid to go beyond your comfort zone and your own borders. It can also mean that you have preconceived and negative notions of yourself.  If you are noticing or judging the traits of people as being stupid or smart, dumb or funny overweight or underweight, ugly or beautiful, this speaks to the way you also perceive yourself.

When you love the people you see in a dream it indicates that you love and accept yourself. If you are among a group of people and yet you feel alone, it means that you are experiencing feelings of solitude and loneliness. If you are trying to get away from people it means that maybe possibly you need a break or rest from everyday work and stress.  If you dream that are just face in the crowd that means you feel that you are unnoticed and that you are unworthy or unimportant.

Technique and ability alone do not get you to the top of the mountain; it is the willpower that is the most important. This willpower you cannot buy with money or be given by others..it rises from your heart”
Junko Tabei-1975 after becoming first woman to climb Everest

A mountain is symbolic of an obstacle or a challenge. To traverse a mountain requires effort. You may desire to climb that mountain to feel the success in facing and overcoming a challenge. Or, you may decide its best to take another route. No matter what you do, the mountain foretells of the challenges.

The mountain in a dream can be about a current obstacle or one that is coming.  To dream that you are approaching the mountain means that the obstacle is going to be presenting itself very soon. To dream that you see the mountain far away in the distance is a warning of a challenge rise up in the future. It is not necessarily imminent. You may be able to avoid the obstacle altogether by changing direction and taking another path. To dream that you are coming down a mountain or that it is behind you means you are at the end of the challenge or that the challenge was in the past.

The size and shape of the mountain indicates the amount of difficulty and the amount of effort necessary to overcome this challenge. If the mountain is not too steep, and not too difficult to cross, it means that the obstacle that you are trying to overcome is easily manageable. It only requires some effort and attention.  A mountain that is tall and jagged with very treacherous terrain indicates that you have a lot to consider when you decide to conquer this challenge.  You must be prepared and have the right tools. You need to have a map or plan in order to be able to navigate your way so that you are successful on your climb.

If you feel fear as you approach the mountain, it means that you are not certain if you will be successful as you attempt to undertake the challenge.  If, even though you are afraid, start to climb the mountain, it means, despite the uncertainty, you are willing to face your fears.  If you dream someone is climbing with you, it means that you are not alone on your journey. If you dream that you are in danger while on the mountain, you may have to consider whether or not this is really something that you want to pursue. Danger might be thrilling for some people, but for some, it is an indication it is time to turn back.

If you dream of climbing a mountain and the weather makes your way slippery with rain or snow, or your vision is diminished by fog or a storm, it is an indication and that taking on this challenge at this moment is fraught with difficulties. If the way is slippery you risk failing. Fog means you have a hard time seeing your options.  You may want to wait for the weather to clear so that the path is less obscured.  Rain can also indicate crying. This can mean the challenge, for you, is emotionally charged.  Snow on the mountain can be an indication of the time of the year, the months of November through February. Or, it can be an indication your challenge has to do with an older person and their winter years.

 

Money in a dream represents power. Money speaks of your own personal power or the power of another.  Your feelings and relationships toward money in a dream can indicate your own feelings of disempowerment or empowerment.

Money is the representation of your ability to purchase things. Having or not having money is the difference between being able to pay for your home, buy food and provide for yourself and your family.  Money gives social status. The love and desire for money is a key driver for many people. Money motivates us to desire to achieve more and more because of what we think we can gain from having it. Money does not lead to love and happiness as the adage goes, but you can be quite comfortable in the meantime. This can be both positive and negative. Christianity says that the “love of money is the root of all evil.” Why? Because, as we said before, money is another word for power. He who has the money has the power. Depending on who “he” is says how “he” will wield his power.  The phrase “follow the money” is a quote from the movie All the Presidents Men. It is about the Watergate Scandal. It means if you want to know who ultimately is running the show, look and see who stands to gain financially from what is happening.  In your dream, it would also be a good idea to “follow the money”. Who stands to lose gain? It can be taken as an indicator of who is in charge.

When you dream that you are rich and have lots of money, you are dreaming that you feel powerful or you believe yourself to be self-empowered.  If you dream that you are poor and destitute or without money, you perceive yourself to lack power or abilities. To dream that you are spending lots of money, you may be in fact be spending lots of money in your waking life.  More importantly to understand is what you are in fact doing.  You are wielding own personal power. Where you spend your money and how will indicate if you are happy with your actions or not.  If you dream you are spending frivolously and going through your money quickly, or money is running through your fingers so to speak, this indicates that you may be careless with your energy and you are wasting personal power.

If someone is stealing your money this indicates you feel like someone is stealing your power or taking advantage of you. If you are depositing your money in a bank, you are dreaming you creating a reserve of energy for future use. To dream you have lost or can’t locate your money it means your power is eluding you or you don’t know where you will find the energy to move forward. If you dream that someone is giving you money, or that you are inheriting money means that you are being empowered. This can be by another person, a circumstance or a boost in your own self-confidence.

“I had a dream about getting married!” A dream about marriage can speak about a union, partnership or a committed emotional or loving relationship. The context from which marriage is viewed speaks to the health and strength of the relationship and between those involved. It can be your existing marriage, a relationship to another person or situation to which you are tied or committed.  People can be married to their jobs or other non-personal things. In any case, it speaks to the commitment or time the person spends at a location or participating in an activity.

Getting Married has Different Meanings

If you dream that you plan to enter into a marriage with another person, it means you desire to work together in a significant way. You see yourself joined with another in a common goal. The harmony and the strength of the marriage represented in the dream, reflects the harmony and the strength the union in your waking life.

Dream about getting marriedIf you dream your marriage is in trouble, consider whether or not the other person represents a business partner is an actual love relationship.  This says which relationship needs to be examined. If you dream of marriage counseling you have decided you are willing to try to mend the relationship. You may decide ultimately of divorce and that the marriage is not salvageable.

If you dream of a happy, healthy marriage this indicates that your relationship or your business venture with your business partner is going well and you are pleased with the situation.  If you dream that your marriage is on the rocks, it can mean difficult times are ahead.

Problems of Infidelity and Trust

When you dream of infidelity in a marriage, this can mean that you do not trust the other person in the relationship.  If it is a business partnership you may think your colleague is doing things behind your back and putting the business in jeopardy. If you dream your husband or wife is cheating on you, this speaks to your own self-doubt and self-confidence concerning your perceived attractiveness to the other person. You may believe unconsciously that you are not good enough or do not deserve to have a happy relationship.  This dream can also be prophetic.  It may be that in your dream state you are putting together clues of the infidelity that may have slipped by your conscious mind. Your partner may indeed be cheating.

If you are the person that is unfaithful to the marriage bed it indicates that you are secretly sabotaging the relationship because on some level you are dissatisfied with the current marriage relationship. You may be experiencing guilt for being untrue to your marriage. This is especially true if you dream of being caught.

If you dream you are married to your work or to a sport, this means that your level of commitment is very high.  If you are happy in this situation, it means that even though it requires a lot of time, the payoffs are worth the effort. If you see the commitment to say a job as taxing and hurting other important relationships such as your marriage to your husband and wife, this would indicate you need to perhaps re-evaluate your priorities.

Killing – Dreaming about killing someone or someone being killed is very reminiscent of the kidnapping dream. The only difference is that with killing, it means that the person that is lost becomes indelibly changed and cannot be brought back.

This sort of experience can ruin relationships and destroy families. It is important to view this dream as a very strong warning against losing yourself in an upcoming project. It is always better to fail at work than to fail at your entire life.

Killing is one of man’s most basic instincts.  Killing for food, Killing in self-defense.  When is killing an instinctual and justifiable action? When is killing murder? Is killing in war murder? Is killing animals for food wrong or acceptable? Abortion, is that killing? Euthanasia? The list and the dilemma goes on an on. These are the quandaries of the human, whom if they themselves would be killed, would have no chance at life. The one thing we must be in order to live is alive.  If that is gone, game over.

Every living being seeks to preserve their own life, yet man with his wars, hunting, and other actions, take the lives of other beings, without so much as a blip on our moral radar. For example, pollution and through other actions we create environments where life cannot thrive. We are in turn killing our oceans and our natural environment. Why is that?  Ask yourself. What does it take to kill? If you consider it within this context, can you really justify say, killing for sport?

In a dream, killing can represent many things depending on the context.  Are you the one killing or the one being killed?  Are you killing an animal or human? Are you killing an idea?

To dream that you are killing another person speaks of heavily repressed anger and dissatisfaction that finds its outlet causing you to lash out and kill another person. The person being killed can represent an aspect of your own life or personality, a situation, or someone you know.  Killing may represent dissatisfaction with a job or lover.  The fact that you are killing this person, speaks to the feeling that you feel overwhelmed or trapped.  Killing is the only way out. You may be killing another, but it in fact you are fighting for your life. If you have suffered some trauma or abuse at some point, the repressed feelings are now surfacing resulting in you killing that individual because you have never been able to confront or have justice for the mistreatment in your waking life.

To dream of being killed, means that you feel that you are currently under attack or are being mistreated in some way.  This may be, a job that is slowly killing you or zapping your will to live. The pressure of the job, relationship or situation can carry with it so much stress that you feel it is killing you on some level.  High stress situations can bring with them life threatening consequences leading to high blood pressure, cancer, depression and any number of diseases. Disease can be broken down to mean dis-ease. You may want to consider what it is that is slowly killing you and change it.

To dream that you are witnessing the killing of another person speaks to that fact that we witness injustice everyday. Is your intention in your dream to step in and try to prevent it? Or, do you feel helpless to do so?  If you try to prevent the killing, it can relate to a situation in your life, that is a wrong that needs to be righted. If you feel helpless to do anything, it relates to knowing of abuses that you feel you are powerless to prevent.
