Psychological Dream Meaning: Your dream may be showing you that you need to take a break. Often these dreams feature anxieties: You may dream of missing your plane, a disaster while on holiday or a problem such as carrying too much luggage. Listen to what your dream is telling you and take it easy for a while.
Mystical Interpretation: If a jilted young woman dreams of being on holiday she will win back the affections of her sweetheart say the oracles. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: The mountains on either side of you set limitations to the direction you can go. Your dream may show that the choices you have are limited. You are forced to move forward. A journey through a valley sometimes symbolises the transition from one set of circumstances to another. (i.e. through the valley of death to a new life). You may be going through difficult but ultimately beneficial spiritual changes.
Mystical Interpretation: As a spiritual dream symbol, a valley may represent judgement and the importance of modesty: “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain” (Isa. 40:4) Similarly, in the I Ching it says: “High mountains are worn down by the waters, and the valleys are filled up. It is the law of fate to undermine what is full and prosper the modest. And men also hate fullness and love the modest.” (Richard Wilhelm Translation, Routledge & Kegan Paul) Top

Psychological Dream Meaning: A vault may represent the unconscious. What you find there may be of significance. For example, if the vault is a crypt the corpses may represent parts of yourself that are no longer an active part of your personality. They may represent problems and issues that have been ‘laid to rest’. If you find yourself in a bank vault, this may symbolise opportunities for happiness and spiritual unfoldment. The treasures are your rich psychological potential which you have found by exploring the unconscious.
Mystical Interpretation: A very old dream book tells us “If a man dreams he is wandering in black vaults or cellars it is a sign he will marry an artful widow and shall be her drudge, never fathoming her wickedness and craft.” You can’t get more specific than that! Top

Psychological Dream Meaning: A veil conceals. Are you trying to hide something? Perhaps you are afraid to express part of your personality? Try to decide what is being hidden. A Freudian psychologist interprets a veil as a symbol for a woman’s hymen. The dream may show a fear of sexual intercourse.
Mystical Interpretation: Nuns sometimes wear veils. As a spiritual symbol, this dream could represent a rejection of worldly things. Dream superstition says that to dream of a black veil is a sign of parting from one you love. A white veil indicates a wedding. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: Perhaps you are putting words into people’s mouths in waking life. Or maybe you only hear what you want to hear.

Mystical Interpretation: Treason is afoot! Be careful in all your dealings warn the soothsayers. Top
Psychological Dream Meaning: Does your dream amplify feelings that you already have in waking life? You may feel victimised by the people around you. Alternatively you may have been punishing others and your dream has reversed the tables on you. Your dream may be an expression of your feeling of guilt.
Mystical Interpretation: According to most dream oracles, this is a dream that should be reversed. You will be victimised if you dream of hurting others and visa versa if you are the one who is the victim. Top
