General

There’s nothing to show here… yet. Dreams mostly fall in a specific category or are just brain chatter.

Money

In most cases, money symbolizes your feeling of self-worth in dreams. If you dream of exchanging money, it symbolizes some anticipated change in your life. The change would be positive or negative depends upon if you see yourself receiving or losing money in the dream.

Roads

If you are planning a road trip then it’s just brain chatter and roads are manifested literality. In all other dream categories roads convey your direction in life. It may be the current life path or one you are being directed to explore. The surroundings and pit-stops appearing along the road will provide insightful clues.

School

Schools and libraries are common dream symbols in children and teenagers but why would a school or classroom appear in a dream in adulthood? The most common interpretation is that you have an unfulfilled desire for learning something or want to become proficient in a specific topic. Pay attention to the books and other surrounding objects in the dream to understand the symbol

Hands

Hands, how they appear and what is being done with the hands symbolizes many different things. For example, when they are tied up it may represent feelings of futility or sense of being bound. Washing your hands frequently, or more than once, may express guilt that you want to overcome.

One interesting fact about hands appearing in dreams is that you can turn the dream lucid (that is, you can control the dream) by looking closely at your hands in the dream.

People

Seeing other people in your dream often is a reflection of the different aspects of the self. The people in dreams can relate to characteristics that need to be developed or changed. If specific and recognizable people appear in the dream that directly relate to existing relationships, it symbolize the interpersonal issues that need to be worked through. Dreaming of a lover, in particular, is frequently symbolic of an aspect of ourselves, from which we feel detached or have ignored.

House

House, or rooms in a house, symbolize different aspects of the individual and different levels of consciousness. The basement often represents what has been neglected, or what the dreamer is not aware of in his or her waking life, while bedrooms relate to intimate thoughts and feelings. House can host many other dream symbols represented by living spaces, but the building as a whole represents your inner psyche. Each room or floor can symbolize different emotions, memories and interpretations will vary by category and context of the dream.

Mountains

Mountains, hills,  or even mounds symbolize obstacles. These may be obstacles that you have in front of you, have crossed or may come across in near future. The interpretation of this symbol is depending upon the category of the dream and the context that appears in the dream. For example, to dream of successfully climbing a mountain usually reveals a feeling of achievement. Viewing a landscape from atop a mountain can symbolize a life under review without conscious prejudice.

Vehicle

Any type of vehicle – a bike, car, airplane, train, ship or even the animal driven carts (chariots, bullock carts), in our dream symbolize direction and control. In situational dreams this symbol reflects the direction we feel our life is taking, and how much control we think we have over the situation. In prophetic dreams, the same reflects what may lie ahead of us. Vehicles can give us the power to make a transition and envision ourselves getting to our destination or fulfilling our destiny.

Food

Food symbolizes energy, knowledge or nourishment and is directly related to our intellect, emotions and spirituality. Ancient wisdom says, we are what we eat! Food can also be a manifestation of idioms like, “food for thought,” and reveal that we may be “hungry” for knowledge, adventure or experiences. The symbolism of food appears mostly in situational dreams and on occasion, as brain chatter if you are fasting or have not eaten something you like for a long time.
