Shells Dream Meaning
Psychological Meaning: Shells are usually a spiritual symbol because they come from the sea, which represents the vast expanses of the unconscious mind. They are also a divine feminine symbol associated with the god Venus who was born from a shell. (The shape of a shell is reminiscent of the vagina say Freudian psychologists) A heavy tortoise shell may represent your desire for protection. Similarly, a delicate eggshell may symbolise your feelings of vulnerability. Finally, eggshells can represents thin-skinned egotism which, like the arrogant Humpty Dumpty, is easily smashed to pieces.
Mystical Meaning: According to some authorities on dream superstition, shells predict that something strange will happen to you. So if you wake to find you’ve been abducted by aliens or there’s a flipper where your foot was, it is probably the shell dream that’s to blame.
