Cage

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cage symbolizes your heart and emotions. Specifically it means that you suppress your feelings. You keep your heart in a cage so that others cannot get close to you. The logic behind the action is that if people cannot get close they cannot hurt your feelings. Over time you can become so good at suppressing your feelings that you do not even acknowledge them to yourself. For example, a dream where a woman reluctantly releases you from a cage means that you are reluctant to open up or share your feelings with others.

Camera

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Being a device for reproducing images a camera indicates your reproductive system.

Canada

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Canada indicates expansion of consciousness through dharma or compassion. This is often referred to as living in a state of grace and is how Jesus and other spiritual leaders propose we live. On this path you choose what you know will be spiritually beneficial to you and not necessarily what is logical. This meaning does not hold if you are from Canada.

Candle

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Candles indicate you have an intuitive / psychic ability. With your inner light (candle) you can see where others can not.

Car

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A car, being a physical structure, often represents your body. In dreams where it does represent the body there is often emphasis on a particular part of the car or type of car.

Car can be a pun on Karma and indicates that you are on a karmic path. The dream will show you what is holding you on this path and what you need to do to move past it.

A car battery represents your heart or circulatory system since a battery is an electron pump. The heart is your body’s pump.

A dead battery or battery trouble means you are not doing what is required to keep your heart engaged and healthy. We easily accept that our heart needs the right diet and exercise, but forget that our heart also needs emotional expression for optimum health.

A car choke is a pun on choking or suppressing the expression of feelings from your heart. You need to be more honest with your feelings.

The car engine represents your heart as the engine is the heart of the car. Trouble with the engine is a health warning to do with the heart and circulatory system.

A bonnet or hood being the access to the engine is also about your heart. An open bonnet is a request to open up to your feelings or open your heart.  Having the bonnet open in the rain is a healing symbol as this indicates letting life into your heart. The dream is asking you to do this in waking life.

Oil is to the engine as blood is to the heart and so indicates blood in a dream. The most common symbol with oil in dreams is the engine leaking oil. This represents anemia as anemia is a loss of red blood cells. Note that oil in an oil well or oil tanker has a different meaning and indicates you are a spiritual healer.

The car roof is about the brain or mind. An open top car is asking you to open your mind to something new in your life. If you have recently ‘made up your mind’ about something you are being asked to think again. If something has come your way and you are dismissing it, you are being asked to reconsider. The rain coming into an open top car is asking you to open your mind to letting life in. This is true even if in the dream the rain gets in because the roof won’t close. This is saying, “Don’t close your mind.”

The wing mirror represents your reproductive system as a mirror reproduces images. It is unlikely to only have one symbol indicating the reproductive system so you may find the car is a Morris Minor or other car that is no longer in production. The symbolism in that is that such cars are no longer being reproduced which is again pointing to a reproduction system – yours. Another pun in the Morris Minor name is the word minor which means child which yet again points to your reproduction system. A mirror on a Fiat Bambino would also be the same as Bambino means child in Italian. Lastly a rear view mirror also means your reproductive system because of the mirror and the pun on rear or rearing. You are being asked to look at (view) something in the past that is causing you to have issues with having or raising children. The issue itself can be any number of things and is likely to be given by other symbols in the same dream.

Headlights would indicate the eyes as they allow you to see. However, they also indicate an intuitive ability as they allow you to see in the dark. So while others can’t really figure out what is going on, your intuition kicks in and you appear to get direction out of nowhere.

The trunk represents two things. Firstly it can indicate your stomach / digestive system as the trunk is so commonly used to hold grocery items. Your stomach is the first place your body holds food when you put it into your body.

The trunk can also indicate the womb for this reason. Viewing the car as symbolizing the body, the trunk is a small place within the car, with no windows and which is used to transport smaller items. The womb is a small place with no windows which is used to bring smaller bodies onto the planet. In these dreams it is also common to find yourself driving the car out of an underground car park into the daylight. This dream can be about your own birth.

The windshield protects you from the weather, in particular the rain, and so in dreams it indicates protecting yourself from life. The dream is asking you to get more into life. Don’t just wait for things to come to your door. Do something to bring the fun back into your life.

Dreams with car brakes normally have to do with the brake not working efficiently. This usually means that you are doing something that is blocking the achievement of your goals. You are either doing something counter productive or your fears are slowing you down from getting to where you need to be.

Car tires represent your circulatory system as due to the tires being circular and the fact that they need to be pumped, they are analogous to the heart being a pump. The tires being flat would mean there is little emotional expression in your life. You are just plodding along with no real passion on a daily basis.

Tire lug nuts indicate the immune system. The lug nuts keep the tires safe on the car. Since tires represent the circulatory system, the lug nuts represent what keeps the circulatory system healthy and that represents the immune system.

The steering wheel represents two things. Firstly the circulatory system due to the wheel’s circular nature and secondly, it is a reminder that you have the ability to control the direction of your life. If you are having problems driving, when the steering is fully locked while driving around corners, it indicates your alcohol consumption is inhibiting the direction in which your life is going. The pun here is locked referring to being drunk.

Driving a car is about striving towards your goals as we use cars to take us from where we are to where we need to be. Symbolically this indicates moving towards our goals. A goal can be an obvious target like getting a qualification or a specific job. It can also be something less tangible like wanting to be a more attentive parent. See Driving for more.

A powerful car indicates you are a spiritual healer. You have great power running through your body (car).

Car Ferry

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A car ferry signifies pregnancy or your own birth. A car ferry is a vehicle that carries smaller vehicles in its belly. It brings the smaller vehicles across water (which symbolizes the spirit world in dreams) to a berth in a port where the smaller vehicles leave the ferry. This signifies arrival on the planet / birth (berth being a pun).

Car Park

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A car park symbolizes you have a choice of roles or attitudes with regard to the subject matter of the dream. For example, to dream of parking your white car and choosing a cream one asks you to drop your controlling nature (white) and adopt a more tolerant one (cream).

Car Unlocked

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of your car unlocked is a request for you to go ahead and let your guard down. If things are stolen from the car, it shows that you expect to lose out if you are open. If the dream shows nothing was stolen it is much the same and shows you that you will not lose out if you open up.

Carriage

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A carriage such as a train carriage is usually a pun on being in the womb. As adults not involved with psychology or therapy, we can find it difficult to believe that we have any memory from that far back in our life, but we do. We perceive with more than our brains, particularly when under 2 years old, and can carry emotional scars from the womb if we nearly lost our life through a miscarriage or felt unwanted or were threatened with abortion.

Cash

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Cash can be indicative of the amount of energy you are willing to commit or being asked to commit to the subject matter of the dream.

Petty cash often indicates that you do not value the subject matter of the dream. For example, to dream of a silver box with petty cash inside, says that you view intuition (silver) as petty or that the information you get that way is petty. Hardly worth sharing because it is of no real value. You need to place a far higher value on your ability.

A woman at a cash register indicates your mother placed a price on her love.

Cash register

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

woman at a cash register indicates your mother placed a price on her love.

Castle

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A castle symbolizes past life influences, given that it is unlikely you live in one now! It can often mean that your attitude towards the subject matter of the dream is out of date.

Cat

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Cats often indicate your gut or stomach. Cat gut is used for many things and we also have the expression my stomach is cat. In these dreams, other symbols for the digestive system will often occur such as dreaming of a cat in the kitchen, references to biting or the mouth or references to particular foods. As with most animals the location of the cat is most significant. Kitchens always indicate the digestive system as a kitchen is linked with eating and food preparation. A cat being eaten by a snake or being chased by one is a warning of stomach cancer. A cat climbing the wallpaper or scratching you is indicative of acid reflux.

Cats, especially if black, can also indicate guilt due to the fact that the cat-o-nine-tails was used on ships to purge sailors of their sins.

A cat in the bedroom or scratching a bed post would indicate guilt with regard to sexual activity.

A cat in the bedroom wardrobe indicates that guilt (the cat) is affecting your attitude (clothes in wardrobe) towards sex (the bedroom). This can even be the other way around where your attitude towards the sexual act is causing guilt. For instance, if you were sexually abused in your childhood this could cause you to adopt a distasteful attitude towards sex which causes you to feel guilt because you don’t want to have sex with your partner.

Cave

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cave is a good symbol for the womb and brings you back to when you were in your mother’s body.

A cave can also indicate a feeling of isolation or an introverted nature.

Cavity

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A tooth cavity is about problems with your reproductive system. If you do not currently have a problem the dream is a warning of a problem manifesting.

Large cavities in dreams symbolize your lungs and respiratory system. Your lungs are a large cavity in your body.

Ceiling

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Ceilings can symbolize a limitation as in I reached the ceiling of my ability. As they are always above your head ceilings can symbolize the mind and / or spiritual aspects of yourself. A high ceiling asks you to create a greater space in your mind for the subject matter of the dream. A low ceiling lets you know that your thinking on that subject matter is restricted.

Cell Phone

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cell phone indicates you are clairaudient. Clairaudience is a gift where you literally hear messages from the spirit world. Mostly the messages are heard as lines from songs popping into your head. The segment of the song will repeat over and over making you wonder why you can’t get it out of your head. Once you accept it is a message it immediately changes to a line from another song or stops if it is the end of the message. It can also work through hearing lines from movies.

Cement

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Cement or a cement path is typically about your colon or elimination system. The dream is saying that food has hardened in your colon and is caked onto its walls. You need to do something to eliminate it. This inhibits the flow of waste matter and the absorption of nutrients through the walls of the colon.

Central Heating

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Central heating is an excellent symbol for your heart and circulatory system. Buildings represent your body and the central heating system circulates throughout the building from a central location (your heart).

Chain

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A chain represents a karmic obligation. For example a silver chain indicates you are obliged to develop and use your psychic ability to help others.

Chair

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Wood can symbolize your colon. A wooden chair also symbolizes your colon, plus it is where you park your bottom!

Chandelier

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Chandeliers are a source of light and also contain crystals. Light sources indicate you have a psychic / intuitive ability. This comes as a feeling where you just know something without any logical reason for knowing it. The crystal component of the symbol emphasizes the preciseness of your ability. It is or has the potential to be crystal clear.

The word chandelier can also be used in dreams as a pun on channeler so indicates you are a channel.

Channel

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a channel means that you too are a channel – you can communicate with spirits. Puns on the word also mean this. For example, the English Channel or Channel Islands.

Chasing

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

If someone behind you is chasing you, it means something from the past still has a power over you today. While you may feel you are past it, the dream shows that you are still expending energy trying to get distance between you and it. The feeling that comes up in dreams like this is the key. The dream is attempting to show you that there is a link between the past trauma and that feeling today. If a parent is chasing you, it means that you still have issues with that parent today.

Chest

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A chest that is essentially a large spatial cavity, such as a wooden chest or chest of drawers, symbolizes your lungs as they are the spatial cavity within your body. This is especially true if the chest is described as being at chest level.

A human chest can symbolize your chest. For example, if a crow is burying itself into your chest in a dream it is a warning of breast cancer.

A treasure chest symbolizes your spiritual nature and spiritual gifts.

Chicken

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

chicken indicates your relationship, as chicken is often used as a term of endearment.

frozen chicken indicates that you are being cold in your relationship and need to be warmer towards your partner.

Young chicks indicate immaturity in a relationship.

Child

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A child in a dream can indicate you at that age. Commonly it will be one of your own children in the dream. A boy can indicate your male side or that you had issues with your father when you were the age of the boy in the dream. Likewise to dream of a girlcan indicate your female side or that you had issues with your mother in childhood. We each have both male and female aspects to ourselves. Dreams always encourage you to restore balance to this energy mix. In fact that is one of the main purposes of your life.

If you dream of a number of children your age can be indicated by how many children there are. For example, seven children in the dream is about you at the age of 7.

Chimney

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A chimney is connected to the fireplace so in dreams, like any symbol connected with fire, it is about your heart, circulatory system and emotions. There can be a double connection to smoking being bad for your heart.

Choke

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Reference to choking, including objects such as a car choke is a pun on suppressing the expression of feelings from your heart. You need to be more honest with your feelings.

Chopping

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Chopping symbolizes that you are angry / cut-up over the subject matter of the dream.

Christmas

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus and in dreams symbolizes your birth – the most important birth when considered from your perspective.

Church

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a church, synagogue, mosque or other place of worship means that the dream is about your spiritual side / idealism. Look for other symbols in the dream to indicate what you are being specifically asked to develop.

A church organ means you are a channel. You can communicate with spirits.

Cinema

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cinema represents expansion of life and is present in dreams where you are being shown how to make your life into the bigger picture that is meant for you. Long before television, cinema was the means for news dispersal and letting people know what existed in the world.

To exit the cinema asks you to share what you know with others – bring it out onto the street.

Circle

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A circle symbolizes your heart and circulatory system. A circle can also symbolize ideals and goals, since like god, a circle has no beginning or end. This holds regardless of your own personal belief in god.

City

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Cities symbolize your mind. This is especially true for capital cities as the word capital comes from the Latin for head.

Clarinet

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A clarinet, like any musical instrument, symbolizes that you are a channel / medium. You can communicate with spirits. A clarinet is a particularly strong symbol for channeling because it has an opening at both ends. This too is symbolic of a channel as a channel is open to the spirit world and the physical world.

Classroom

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A classroom, being a place of learning, symbolizes learning about yourself with a view to improving yourself.

Cliff

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cliff indicates that you rationalize with regard to the subject matter of the dream. This may be life in general, if a boat journey or water is the main subject of the dream. Cliffs are up a height from sea level and this symbolizes your consciousness being up in your head and away from your heart.  The purpose of the dream is to point out your rationalizing nature and ask you to move your center of consciousness downwards towards your heart - listen to your heart more.

On a cliff and looking out to sea can also be about your spiritual nature and what you must overcome to achieve your life purpose.

Clock

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

In English slang the heart is referred to as the ticker. Due to this and the fact that clocks are circular with hands moving in circular paths they represent the heart, circulation system and emotions in dreams. This still holds if the clock is digital in the dream.

To move in a clockwise direction also symbolizes your heart and in this case indicates it would be wise for you to following the advise of the dream.

To move in an anti-clockwise direction is telling you that what you are doing is not wise for your heart.

Clothes

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Clothes represent your attitude towards the subject matter of the dream, as we dress to suit our mood or to suit the role we feel obliged to play (e.g. career). In the dream context, we are free to wear anything we want or to even wear nothing. How we dress, particularly the colors worn, can be very revealing. Old fashioned clothing indicates you have adopted an old fashioned attitude towards the subject matter of the dream. This is most likely handed down to you by one or both parents. Being given hand me downs belonging to your father would be clearly showing you have adopted your fathers attitude.

Being naked in a dream is a very good symbol and shows that you are being asked to be yourself when it comes to the subject matter of the dream. The disturbing feeling usually associated with this type of dream, indicates the level of discomfort you would have in being yourself. If you are currently undergoing therapy this type of dream shows it is working well and restoring your sense of identity.

Washing clothes can represent anxieties with regard to the subject matter of the dream.

Cloud

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A dark cloud symbolizes depression. A cloud with a silver lining indicates you are heading out of depression.

Clown

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A clown symbolizes inner sadness that is not expressed.

Club

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A club is a male symbol and indicates that you have a male energy approach to life or the subject matter of the dream. You need to restore balance between male and female aspects of yourself. Female energy allows you to forgive, listen, have two-way communication, lead and more – all aspects worthy of developing.

A dance club symbolizes expression of your heart and indicates you need to listen to and share your feelings more.

A club or association can indicate your participation in the club of life. For example, wanting to cancel your membership in a club can indicate a conscious or subconscious wish to leave the planet.

Coal Mine

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A coal mine is a source of power so can indicate you are a hands-on healer. However a coal mine can also be about your colon due to the fact that it is mined from the earth and the half pun coal makes with colon.

Coat

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A coat indicates that you do not allow others to get close to you. This is always about your heart and emotions. The mistaken idea is that by keeping people at a distance you cannot get hurt. The dream shows you this to ask you to open up and allow others to get close. Suppressing your feelings over a long period of time is not healthy for your heart. Ideally you are open and honest about your feelings both to yourself and to others.

Coffee Table

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Due to the pun on cough a coffee table can symbolize your lungs. Look for other symbols in the dream to back this up. Are there vacuum cleaners, air ducts or ventilation systems in the dream?

Magazines on a coffee table indicate that you have a counseling ability. Indeed the dream is saying that it is your responsibility to develop this ability. Literally it is time for you to put this gift on the table.

Coffin

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A coffin symbolizes you need to eliminate negative influences from the past. A negative aspect of you has to die before a positive aspect can find expression. For example, to dream of the death of your father means you need to eliminate negative influences from your father. This can be an influence that leads to dysfunctional behavior but does not have to be. For example, a woman who was in a long term relationship and already had a child from a previous relationship, felt her parents would disapprove of her having a second child by a different man. This was enough to stop her until she dreamed of her father dying, followed by dreams of being pregnant.

Coins

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Coins can represent a number of things in a dream, including energy, your heart and circulatory system, intuition and hands-on healing. The value of the coin or indeed the quantity of coins can also be the significant symbol in the dream. For example, 20 cent asks you to develop your channeling as a goal while 40 cent means you are limiting your goals.

Silver coins, being the color of the moon, indicate you have a strong intuitive ability. Like the moon you are a light in the dark. It is common to find yourself discovering silver coins in a dream or picking them up.

Gold coins, being the color of the sun, indicate you have a hands-on healing ability. The sun’s energy breathes life into our world. Like the sun, you can project energy into others.

Copper coins indicate you have a hands-on healing ability that works well for healing rheumatism.

Collar

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To put a collar on something in a dream is a request to constraining the item in question. For instance putting a collar on a snake, when the snake refers to the medical profession (think caduceus) it means to select and refine a subset from your full skills and knowledge. To become expert in a subset of the field.

Color

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Colors reveal a lot about the meaning of a dream. Look up the individual color to determine its meaning.

Communism

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Communism in dreams indicates sharing of feelings. This comes from the ideal of communism rather than how communism has unfolded in communist countries. The communist motto shows the ideal, “Each one gives in accordance with his ability and each one takes according to his needs.”

Compact Disc

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A compact disc, when full length, indicates you are on the karmic path. The karmic path is far longer than the dharmic path when it comes to increasing your awareness. A single release on CD indicates the shorter dharmic path.

Computer

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Computers symbolize logic, the brain and conditioning. This is because computers are programmed using logic to repeat the same tasks over and over. The computer itself is analogous to the brain while the software that controls it symbolizes the mind.

Computer Bag

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A computer bag represents conditioning that is holding you back. Computers indicate conditioning (they are programmed to repeat the same task over and over). Bags indicate baggage, which by themselves indicate conditioning from the past.

Computer Program

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Changing a computer program or reprogramming a computer asks you to change your conditioned thinking or attitude towards the subject matter of the dream.

Concert

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a concert means you are a channel. Music is inspired by the spirit world and in dreams indicates an ability to communicate with that world.

Conflict

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A conflict symbolizes you are at war with yourself or with others.

Cooker

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cooker hob, because it is used to cook food, symbolizes your stomach and digestive system. For example, a dream showing milk boiling over and spilling onto the floor indicates an allergy to milk or dairy products. It also indicates anger (boiling) that needs to be dealt with.

An oven usually symbolizes the uterus due to the expression having a bun in the oven indicating pregnancy.

Copier

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A copier reproduces copies of an original and as such symbolizes your reproductive system. To reinforce its symbolism the copier is often located in the bedroom in dreams.

Copper

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Copper indicates you have a hands-on healing ability that works well for healing rheumatism.

Corridor

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Corridors are used to take you from one room to another. You do not remain in them for very long and as such in dreams they signify you are in a transition.

Council

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Anything that includes the word council, including a council house, council flat, county council meeting or council official all mean that you have a counseling ability.

Counselor

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a counselor means you have a natural counseling ability. Counseling works through your female energy and although it is a requirement to be trained officially in order to practice, it is not learned from books or tuition. It comes through living life on the outside always looking in at others, including your friends, and seeing their individuality and why they get on and what’s going on when they do not. From a young age, friends will automatically have sought you out for advice as they are drawn by your aura.

Counter

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A counter is about something you are accountable for. For example, to dream of magazines on a counter asks you to develop your counseling ability. People are counting on you to develop it. This is part of your life purpose and how you intend to repay your karmic debts and deepen your spirituality.

Countryside

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

The countryside indicates emotions in a dream for two reasons. Firstly the countryside is a vast open space and openness in dreams is about being open with your emotions. Secondly, the countryside is mostly green and this is the color of your heart chakra.

Court

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Courts are where judgment is passed and indicates that you are judgmental with regard to the subject matter of the dream. You probably suffer most under your own judgmental hammer.

Courtroom

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Courtrooms indicate you judge yourself harshly.

Courtyard

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A courtyard indicates you are judgmental. A cobbled stone courtyard indicates your judgmental nature comes from past life influences.

Crab

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

The crab is the astrological sign for cancer and in dreams indicates a physical health warning. It does not mean that you have cancer and it is normal for everyone to dream of cancer from time to time. Your immune system is designed to detect cancer and fight it off. The same dream is likely to also show what is triggering the cancer and what needs to be done to prevent it.

Crane

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a crane means you approach life from a logical perspective (high up in your head).

Bright yellow cranes indicate that you have an enlightened intellect and can use this to get a higher perspective on problems at hand or to improve your philosophy of life.

Crash

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A crash can symbolize stress in your life. An airplane crash signifies a difficult birth – your arrival on the planet did not go as smoothly as expected. The event was traumatic due to either a brush with death or a negative emotional experience.

If you lost a child due to miscarriage or shortly after birth you can also dream of airplane crashes. For example, a woman whose baby died shortly after being born dreamed she witnessed a plane coming in to land flying too low. It passed just over her head and crashed behind her. The force of the gust from the blast knocked her over.

A small / baby car crashing into a bus can indicate you were an unwanted baby. In this case the bus symbolizes feeding at your mother’s bosom (bust) and picking up on her feelings about your arrival.

To dream of your partner dying in a car crash is indicative of a relationship which feels like the one you do not want to lose. It is a common dream for people who have had a previous difficult relationship. It does not foretell the death of your partner. Rather it shows your fear of losing them. The dream is showing you this fear only because it is affecting your relationship in someway. Do not put pressure on yourself or your partner because you think something will cause them to leave. Enjoy what you have now.

Credit Card

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Credit cards, because of their association with banks, are about balance of the heart and sharing of feelings. Credit cards normally operate where the credit card company gives to you first and you owe them, so in dreams they indicate that when it comes to sharing feelings with people or that special person in your life, you are behind. The dream is asking you to open up and share your true feelings. What makes you happy? What makes you sad and why? Do people know the real you or only what you choose to show on the surface?

Crocodile

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a crocodile indicates that you are either too assertive (your bite is too large) or that you are losing a grip on things (losing your bite) - once a crocodile has a grip on you they will not let go. You know which applies to you. This dream is healing and intends for you to get renewed strength to regain your grip on things by healing your bite. You should be able to take a bite at life and only bite off what you can chew. See teeth for more.

A crocodile in a swamp represents your colon. Here the crocodile symbolizes a health warning so look to the other symbols in the dream to indicate what you need to do to prevent it.

Cross Country

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Cross country is about opening your heart and using it to guide you in your life. Easier said than done but well worth the effort it takes to get there.

Crossroad

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A crossroads indicates difficulties ahead and the need to take care.

Crouching

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Crouching in a dream indicates you are protecting yourself in some way. This protection comes at a price and the dream is asking you to deal with whatever caused you to be this way. For example, a dream where you are crouching down protecting your three year old son means you are protecting your inner child from an event that happened at age 3. Now is the time to look back at this time and do what it takes to eliminate the negative effects that you still carry with you today.

Crow

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A crow attacking or eating something is a warning of cancer. For example, a crow burrowing into your chest is a warning of breast cancer.

A crow sitting on a roof or flying to or from one indicates negative thoughts. A large crow flying overhead symbolizes depression.

Crowd

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A crowd standing in line or queuing symbolizes a slow moving colon.

An overcrowded room signifies your lungs as it is hard to breathe in such locations.

Placating a hostile crowd indicates you have spiritual leadership abilities.

Crucifixion

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a crucifixion means you are crucifying yourself unnecessarily. This self punishment and criticism achieves nothing regardless of what you feel you have done wrong.

Crying

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Crying in a dream is healing as it symbolically gives release to pent up emotions related to the subject matter of the dream.

Crystal

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Crystals in dreams can indicate that you have a special healing ability that works through channeling energy through crystals. This is not a common ability and should not be taken lightly. Crystals have a natural resonance and greatly affect the energy around us and flowing through us. Using them the wrong way will not help a client.  However, if you dream of crystals you are being asked to use them for healing purposes.

Crystal is often used to mean something is crystal clear. This comes from the fact that when specific properties of quartz were discovered (applying energy to quartz causes it to vibrate regularly and compressing it causes it to release energy) they were employed in tuning circuits to lock-on to exact frequencies. The result was that receivers using crystal tuning did not drift and enjoyed clarity over other tuning circuits. In dreams this often symbolizes a clear connection with a spiritual ability.

Cull

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A cull is usually indicative of your immune system fighting off a threat of disease. For example, to dream of killing young mutated animals in the wild indicates fighting off cancer in your body – cancer is mutated cells. The animals quite often are shown as young or not fully developed as this is the stage where you want your immune system to spot the threat and deal with it. Note, however, that the animals do not have to be young – once they are shown negatively it means the same thing. Black and white or menacing black animals mean the same thing. Overgrown animals also represent a threat and are good to kill in a dream.

Cupboard

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Cupboards, like any large cavity in a dream, symbolize your lungs and respiratory system. This is especially true if the cupboard is described as being at chest level.

Customs Post

A customs post signifies you are ready to make the transition from one state of consciousness to another. This is especially true if you are asked questions by an official at the customs post. If the country or state you are moving into is bigger than the one you are leaving, your new state of consciousness is expanded. If it is smaller you are doing something that is limiting you.

It is common for the official to ask what you will work at in the new location. They may even suggest a career and a salary. If they do, the career and salary are symbolic of what you are being asked to do in order to develop your new state of consciousness.
