Hourglass Dream Symbol


Hourglass – An hourglass is a dream symbol of the passage of time. As we get older, it becomes more and more real to us how time is passing, and how precious each moment is. Dreaming of watching sand flow through an hourglass is a symbol reminding you that time is passing you by, and you need to make the most of each day.

Dreaming of an hourglass breaking is an ominous portent of catastrophe or unexpected death. This dream should prompt you to resolve your differences with your loved ones and take advantage of the time you have, because you never know when time will be out for either you or them.

  1. I had a dream that there was a bomb blast that I managed to escape from by going to the toilet. Returning to the site it was calm and clean apart from beautiful desks and fine sand under foot. The desk where I would have been had a gold stand where once there was an hour glass and a Golden photo frame with a photo of an old school associate. The gold frames and desk felt warm. It was all very peaceful.

  2. I had a dream in a dream lastnight that I was having trouble sleeping and reached behind my back to find I was lying on an hour glass on its side and that I sat it on the floor on its side. In confused what this might mean.
