Psychological Dream Meaning: A nail may represent the fact that you have resolved an issue: you have ‘hit the nail on the head’. It could also be a phallus symbol. If the nails are driven into your hands this may show that you feel you are being a martyr to your emotions or ideals. Calm even-minded thinking is recommended.
Mystical Interpretation: Since Roman times, iron has been believed to be a sacred metal. To dream of a rusty iron nail is therefore very lucky. Top
Naked (see also Nudity)
Psychological Dream Meaning: To dream of being naked may indicate that you feel vulnerable and exposed. You may feel that you are unable to maintain your defences against the outside world.
Mystical Interpretation: This dream can mean innocence or if you are a traditional Christian, it can refer to the Final Judgement. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: Names can sometimes contain puns that reveal the meaning of your dream. For example, a Mr Swift may be your dream telling you to hurry up and put your plans into action or dreams set in Washington may suggest you should be careful what you say. (Washing tongue!) The puns may be as bad as Bob Hope’s gag writer’s but they reveal the hidden meaning of your dream.
Mystical Interpretation: There are specific superstitions associated with names. For example if you dream that your name is George you will never be hanged. But if it’s Agnes, you will go mad! Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: Being pricked by a needle may represent the minor irritations and worries that upset you. Perhaps something is ‘needling you?’. Sewing with a needle may represent your desire to repair the damage caused by a past hurt. And of course, Freud would remind us that a needle is a phallic symbol.
Mystical Interpretation: Generally, this dream is believed to foretell a disappointment. In some parts of the world, it is said to be unlucky to mention the word needle when you wake up in the morning. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: A nest may represent the home and your domestic life. It is also the place where eggs are incubated so there’s a promise that you are hatching new ideas or making new opportunities.
Mystical Interpretation: Dreaming of a nest full of eggs denotes that you will be prosperous. An Austrian superstition claims that to dream of a nest foretells that you will get a boil. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: The night can represent the unconscious side of the personality. It can also symbolise ignorance, evil or the despair of the dark night of the soul. The process of becoming requires us sometimes to enter the darkness before emerging into light.
Mystical Interpretation: An old superstition says that you can avoid nightmares by hanging your socks or stockings over the end of the bed with a pin stuck through them. The gypsies say that to dream of the night shows despair unless you see a wagon, campfire or a star studded sky. Top
