Psychological Dream Meaning: A tomb may be the entrance to the unconscious. It may also represent those parts of yourself that have been buried away. You may have qualities and talents that you are not using. If you dream of seeing your own name above the entrance to the tomb this is not an omen of death. The dream is saying that what lies within the tomb are the aspects of yourself that have died. You need to rediscover yourself.
Mystical Interpretation: Your dream may symbolise spiritual death and rebirth. In Celtic times, burial mound tombs were considered to be the womb of the Earth Mother from which the new spiritual person was born. Later superstitions claim that to dream of a tomb foretells disappointment. Another curious superstition says it foretells a marriage. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: A tongue may represent the things you say. You may need to express yourself or may have already said too much. Perhaps you’ve been saying something ‘tongue in cheek’? As the tongue plays a part in the sexual act, your dream may be saying something about this area of your life.
Mystical Interpretation: If you dream of your own tongue, you will tell lies. If you see another person’s tongue, they will lie about you. An infected tongue means careless talk. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: A tower may be a symbol for aloofness. Are you so involved in cerebral activities that you have lost touch with your feelings? A tower can also of course be phallus symbol.
Mystical Interpretation: To see a tall tower is a sign of good fortune. Climbing a tower brings success but descending brings failure. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: In part, children use toys to develop their social skills and express their role within the family. Dreaming of playing with toys may therefore be an innocuous way to express your hidden feelings. Consider what each toy represents as part of you or your life. Your dream may also be saying that you are only playing with life and must get down to something realistic and practical. The dream could be a pun for ‘toying’ with ideas or peoples feelings.
Mystical Interpretation: Generally a fortunate omen that predicts happiness for children and families Top

Psychological Dream Meaning: A traffic jam may express your frustration that life is not proceeding as smoothly as you would like it to. You feel stuck. If you dream of being a traffic warden, this may show your desire to impose your own rules on society. You may believe that your social role makes you feel uncomfortable and alienated from others. Let’s face it, not many people like traffic wardens.
Mystical Interpretation: Family problems will be solved but you’ll need a lot of patience if the traffic is in a jam say the wise sages of superstition. Top
(see also Journeys Station)
Psychological Dream Meaning: Your future is ‘on track’. As trains follow a fixed route, this dream may suggest that you are being helped with your journey through life. If you dream of missing a train or passing your destination, it may indicate that you feel that you have missed an opportunity. Also, are you a conformist? Jung believed that to dream of taking a public vehicle often means that the dreamer is not finding their own way forward and is behaving like everyone else. (Freud believed that to dream of missing a train meant missing death. He also was convinced that all dreams involving motion represented disguised wish fulfilments for sexual intercourse. In particular he claimed that a train represents a penis and when it goes into a tunnel this indicates sexual intercourse.)
Mystical Interpretation: Dreamers of long ago believed that to dream of travelling indicates a change in your fortunes. It is particularly fortunate if the destination is towards high hills or mountains. And, if the journey is in a straight line, your good fortune comes swiftly. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: This dream probably expresses the way you feel about your situation. You may feel trapped in a marriage, by parenthood or within a dead-end job. Some areas of your life may need reform. On another level, you may be being held captive by your own conservatism or stubbornness. If you change the way you do things, you may gain a greater sense of freedom.
Mystical Interpretation: The gypsies tell us that to dream of seeing an animal trapped in a net indicates that you have to proceed with great caution or your plans will fail. Top

I am digging in the garden of my childhood home and uncover a box of treasure. My life has been pretty bad lately. Does my dream indicate a change for the better? - P T- Swindon UK
Digging up buried treasure or finding money symbolises rediscovering a part of yourself. Is there something that you have neglected or repressed? It could be that you had an ambition in life and only now have found the opportunity to try again. There may be a wealth of past experiences that you can draw on- something from your childhood perhaps?
The dream may also have a literal interpretation. If you're worried about finances, now may be the time to start a new venture. The dream may symbolise other things too: power, independence, or security. Examine your life- there may be unlooked-for opportunities just below the surface.
1. What am I searching for? The treasure of your dream may symbolise the things that you've always wanted from life They may not necessarily be material but the dream may suggest that now is the time when you are searching your heart to discover what you really want from life.
2. Is the treasure part of me? The treasure may symbolise you as a complete and whole person. Maybe something that has hitherto been neglected or repressed is surfacing again in your life. An artistic talent, positive attitude, self-respect or opportunity perhaps.
Mystical Interpretation: Old dream superstitions disagree with the modern interpretations for this dream: To dream of digging for treasure indicates that someone you have loved and trusted is not worthy of your love.
