Ok folks, it’s been a little while since I’ve added a post to our dream series. So today I was thinking, “Man, I need to add a new post to that series.” So here we go…
Have you ever had a dream where you were mending or fixing things? Dreams about mending or fixing things may seem trivial, but there are many interpretations and meanings for these types of dreams.
If you thought that a dream about mending or fixing things was symbolic of your need to fix a problem in your waking life, then you hit the nail on the head. If you’re having dreams like these, as always, pay close attention to the outcome… Did you successfully fix what ever you were working on in your dream? Or did you make things worse, or possibly break something beyond repair.
Whether or not you had all the supplies you needed to complete the task may also be significant. What ever you do, try to find a common place between your dreams and the waking life. How does what ever you’re trying to mend or fix relate to aspects of your waking life?
Things Associated with Mending Dreams
Dreams about Buttons
Have you ever had a dream where buttons were appearing everywhere? Buttons are symbolic of objects that hold things together. They are also fasteners that allow things to be open or closed. See if these may be related to things in life or possibly you’re struggling with opening or closing yourself to other people.
Needles in your Dreams
Needles are often thought of as objects that have the ability to heal by penetration. Basically this means that certain concepts or knowledge must be made available from the outside in. Of course things like this could potentially be uncomfortable in the beginning. But in the long run, you will feel much better. Of course there is always that variation of whether you are the one receiving or giving the needle. Penetrative insights can come from both the inside or outside of your conscious.
Dreams that Involve Pins
If you’ve had a dream that you were being pricked by a pin, then this could be symbolic of a difficult situation or relationship. Possibly your relationship is out of sorts making you feel anxious, or maybe you feel the need to hold it together, thus the pin reference. This could also represent someone you see as a “prick”, try to establish a relationship between the “prick” and a particular person in your life.
On the other hand, pins in your dreams may suggest a feeling of being trapped, for example `being pinned down`. There are also dreams involving pincushions, these may represent hurtful comments you’ve experienced in your waking life. Possibly you’ve felt attacked or manipulated while awake, or maybe you’ve been this way to someone else. As with all dreams involving emotions, try to relate them to certain people in your life to find a more profound meaning.
Dreams of Scissors
As with pins, scissors may also represent harsh or cutting remarks, or may also be related to decisiveness or the act of taking control of a certain situation or person. But on the other hand, scissors are also symbolic of a separation or independence, for instance, “cutting the umbilical cord”.
You may also need to pay close attention to the type of scissors that are shown in your dream. Surgical scissors may be symbolic of a need to be more precise. While kitchen scissors suggest practicality. If the scissors you’re experiencing in your dream are dull or blunt, this may suggest you’ve created problems by being too blunt during conversation with someone.
You may even find yourself sharpening scissors in your dream. This could mean you have a need to be more tactful. Then of course we have the ole barber using the scissors dream. It could be you have a fear of loosing authority or maybe a certain status. It’s a wide spread belief in the realm of folk lore that clean scissors mean you have nothing to fear from enemies, where broken or rusty scissors are the opposite.
Seeing Tape, Thimbles or Thread in your Dreams
Tapes are often times used to measure certain things while in the waking life. So if you’re seeing them in your dreams, it could be you have a need to measure or calculate the probability of a specific project you’re working on being successful.
Seeing thimbles in your dreams are usually symbolic of your need to think more of the welfare of others rather than yourself. Dream interpretations of ancient times suggest if you lose a thimble it is a sign of misfortune. While receiving or purchasing a thimble is a sign of new friendships.
Then we have the all important thread in the dream trick. Seeing thread in your dreams is a sure sign that you need to strengthen or pull together relationships in your waking life. But beware, seeing broken threads while dreaming may mean you have some unreliable friends that may not be good for you.
Well, that’s all I’ve put together for this post on dreams and their meanings. The series is far from over, so be on the lookout for the next episode, maybe the explanation of a recent dream will be there for you to discover. And let’s not forget folks, always keep those dream journals handy so you have a reference of your dreams. But it’s imperative you jot down anything you can remember upon first waking up.
Have you had any dreams on mending or fixing things lately?
