Pen Dream Symbol


Pen – A pen in a dream represents communication and creativity. If you are looking for a pen to write something down and cannot find one, this indicates frustration in communication and fear that you cannot make other people in your life understand the things you are trying to say. If you dream about writing something or drawing something with a pen, on the other hand, this indicates confidence in your ability to make yourself understood.

Remember that the language centers of the brain are shut down while you sleep, so do not be surprised if what you write is unintelligible or if it changes after you write it. This is not a dream symbol in itself, but simply a function of your brain activity.

  7. I dreamt last night of chewing on a pen and I cannot find an interpretation for that anywhere online. I have looked at numerous dream websites about dreaming of pens and none refer to chewing on a pen. Can anyone please help me! It was a push pen. I was chewing on the tip, not the cap. I did not write with the pen but it was not broken or leaking ink. I was also busy while chewing on the pen….such as going about life. In the dream, I wasn’t upset but wasn’t happy either. It was more like I was just content and busy doing things and trying to figure thing out.
