You may think that this is the best you can be. Just like so many others settling for second best. But, you do not have to accept mediocrity. Just reach for the dreams you have for the future.

Seeing a plum tree can mean you are a dreamer. If it is lush, laden with fruit, this can mean you have no problem standing up for yourself without the help of others. Some may see you as a tough, dangerous person because they are too shallow to look beyond the surface. Green plums can mean there may be minor issues with family or your partner.

You need to pay more attention to the situation to ensure these issues are readily resolved to ensure you do not lose the relationship. If the green plums are still on the tree, this is a clear sign all the issues will resolve themselves to strengthen the relationship. Ripe plums bring messages of fun relaxed times chilling out with family and friends.

When you dream of picking plums from the tree or from the ground to eat them, this can mean although all your desires are fulfilled they do not bring the pleasure you expected. If there are few rotten ones among them, then one day you may be a lonely person who never reached their dreams. This may be a warning to look at your life in the present. There are things you need to change to prevent this loneliness in the future. Analyze your current behavior. You may be reacting to tough challenges that may not be of your doing. You need to address these to move forward.

Eating sweet, ripe plums means you have a good intimate relationship with your partner. When they are sour, this indicates you have fears of rejection. These may cause your relationship issues if you do not openly communicate your fears to your partner. Communication is the key to any great relationship.

Dreams of plums in winter bring messages of tough times and disappointment. Seeing them in summer, brings positive news of health and well being.

    Hi. I am Alice. I dreamt that I was in a bar, working shifts and my first love was there too.. but he had to go for a cricket match.
    I dreamt I said I had to work… my mother was there too.. but she died a couple of years ago…. but I could sense she was happy.
    I didn’t want to work but knew I had to.. the owner left saying “if she had to work, I had to work.
    I then picked up a beautiful blue eyed baby girl and held her, walking outside to great my old boyfriend.
    A van was there with his teammates and the van was full of cricket equipment.
    Suddenly I looked to my right and there were a lot of men on motorcycles… and I was in a wedding dress with the baby still in my arms.
    A lady called my name and said “Alice, you go hide for us” as if they would come to find me.
    I went.. but so did a lot of woman with me. All dressed in different wedding dresses.
    All the woman were hiding , finding a place in a huge delpedated building with grass around it.
    I couldn’t find a spot and just sat in a small holowness under a prune tree …which was still small but strong and had white flowers on it..with my wedding dress and the beautiful baby… and as soon as I sat down..the bikes came looking… I just closed my eyes for a moment to pretend they won’t be able to see me… all of a sudden everyone was sitting all around each bride with their groom… and the woman who called my name was standing in front of everyone as to be a ceremonial person… I turned to the baby and tugged her safely with my wedding dress… and with her bautiful blue eyes she smiled at me… so gorgeous……then… he came to sit right next to me ..smiling… straightening his black wedding tuxedo.. on the grass.
    I looked at him and smiled and gave him a hug… Insaw at the back of him were couples in black blue beautiful wedding outfits.. and at first I wanted to show them I love him… but then I hugged him with both arms, closed my eyes and gave him a small rub on his back…. I dont know where the baby went….
    For the first time I was happy….. in this dream… in my life… it wasn’t an ecstatic happy…but fulfilled….grateful, quiet happy… I woke up next to my current boyfriend and started crying…..

  2. I dreamt that I was walking or running (I don’t remember) and suddenly something got thrown at me, and stung my really badly in my arm. It really hurt and when I went to check what it was-, it was a plum. And that action was repeated in my dream one more time when I finally reached my home in my dream.
    Wonder what it means, the pain was so vivid.

  3. I Dreamed of a family feast We ate a strange fruit that was part plum part pear It poisoned us The dream happened at my childhood home that no longer exists

  4. I dreamed that i was picking both ripe and half ripe governor plums from a tree late evening in the dark. the sky wasn’t too dark and the tree was laden with plums. Can you assist with the meaning of this

    • I dreamt I was picking plums…. Purple plums…. In an old cemetery which is in the tiny village I grew up in and both my parents are still there. I was picking and gathering the abundance of beautiful ripe, sweet plums along with someone else. This person was an older woman. Someone I seemed to know well and was very comfortable and content with. We were chatting and smiling. I felt happy. There were piles of ripe plums on the ground that we had collected. We ate some, they were lovely…. Earlier I had picked some elderberries and had eaten some before I remembered I shouldn’t eat the raw. But this didn’t seem a bug deal….
      What does this mean?
