Farmhouse

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A farmhouse symbolizes your emotions. Farmhouses are typically isolated (another symbol for the emotions) and in the open country side.

Fast Food

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of any fast food restaurant is about the need to speed up your digestive system. It is a perfect symbolic antidote to a sluggish digestive system with fast food. To emphasize the healing the dream will often place you in the drive through which provides faster fast food and is usually very brightly lit in the dream.

Father

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A dream including your father is likely a comment on your relationship with him and how it is holding you back in some area of your life now. Dreams only focus on problems in your life. Although you may have had a wonderful relationship, there are still often traits or attitudes you copied that you could do without.

To dream of your father dying is not a warning about his death. Rather it asks you to let some negative aspect of yourself die so that a more positive one can find expression. The negative aspect is connected with your father that you either copied or developed, as a result of your relationship. It does not matter if your father is already dead or you have not seen him in many years. It is the effect you are carrying today that is the target of the dream. Male energy is affected by your relationship with your father and gives you confidence, belief in yourself, creativity, individuality, various spiritual gifts and more. The dream can be about any of these.

Feces

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of feces indicates there are problems with your colon.

Fence

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A fence is used to mark your personal space. In dreams this is a symbol of sharing and indicates suppression of feelings. You do not share your feelings with others and more importantly you do not acknowledge your feelings yourself. Feelings come from your heart and persistent suppression can lead to health problems in this area. Also look for symbols to do with your head, such as roofs or being up a height, as these dreams are often asking you to move your centre of consciousness down from your head and into your heart.

Ferris Wheel

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Wheels represent your heart due to their circular shape. Here circular is a pun on circulation system where the wheel’s circular movement symbolizes your blood circulating around your body.

A Ferris wheel or big wheel is likely to be about being caught on a karmic cycle. This is where you miss the opportunities in life to repay the karmic debts you owe. This can results in the need to plan another life to pay the debts you had planned to pay this time around. A Ferris wheel ride symbolizes this perfectly as it just does a complete cycle and you end up back where you started.

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).

Fiat

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Since Fiat cars are made in Italy they symbolize passion and your heart in dreams.

Field

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A Field symbolizes your heart and feelings, as green is the color of the heart chakra. Fields are generally open and expansive so the dream is also asking you to be more open with your feelings. Green also symbolizes harmony. See Green.

A harvest field symbolizes your reproductive cycle.

Fighter Airplane

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A fighter plane indicates you are an angry person – ready with a verbal arsenal to win arguments and defend your space. The dream will likely say how this came about and will be encouraging you to soften up.

Fighting

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Fighting symbolizes conflict within or between you and the subject matter of the dream.

Film Studio

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Just as actors indicate you are a channel so too does a fillm studio. However, it specifically means that you are going to work with your guides to channel messages that are to be disseminated to the public at large. It means that because movies are produced there for a wide audience.  The channelled messages will require crafting on your end. You will be putting into words something that is conveyed more completely as feeling on the spirit plane.

Fire

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Any symbol of fire in a dream indicates your emotions. For example, to dream of a fireplace with no fire lit is asking you to add passion to your heart.

Fireplace

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A fireplace symbolizes your heart and circulatory system. Another word for fireplace is hearth which is a pun on heart.

Fish

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Fish symbolize spirituality as they live in water.

Flames

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Flames like any symbol of fire represent your heart. If something is in flames it can indicate a health warning.

Floating

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Summary – Intellectual, absent healer, projector, hypnotist.

Floating indicates that you have the ability to project your mind onto others. You can use this to good and bad effect. It is very useful in marketing, sales and teaching. Be careful not to think badly of others as your negative thoughts can have a negative effect on them. Whether you believe in karma or not you will bring it on yourself for doing this.

Floating also indicates you have the ability to hypnotize others. Hypnosis is achieved by the practitioner projecting their mind onto their subject. This is regardless of other tools the hypnotist may use or believe is doing the hypnosis for them. It is their mental projection onto the mind of the subject that makes it work.

Floor

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Floors symbolize something you must overcome. For example, to dream of black and white floor tiles means you are being asked to overcome extremism (seeing things as black and white).

Floors in kitchens, bathrooms or when the state of the floor is the focus, can also symbolize your elimination system. This is particularly the case if the floor is dirty or something has spilled onto it. For example, if milk boils over on the cooker and spills onto the floor it means you have an intolerance to milk and your system cannot eliminate it properly from your body.

Sitting on a floor in a dream brings you back to your childhood as that is when you used to sit on the floor.

Flowers

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Flowers symbolize love just as they do when you receive them in reality.

A potted flower symbolizes reproduction, the uterus, new growth and the possible heralding of a child.

A rose symbolizes virginity – giving someone your flower.

I came across an interesting symbol in a recent dream. It was a string of flowers in the dreamer's living room that lead up to a flower wreath in the centre of the ceiling. In the dream they were placed there by her deceased mother. 

In the dream they symbolise that the bond of love (string of flowers) continues in the spirit world (ceiling level emphasized) beyond the grave (wreath). What a wonderful message to receive from a loved one?

Flying

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Since you cannot physically fly, to dream of flying symbolizes that you have a strong intellect which you can use to mentally rise above a problem. In the dream, when flying, you are looking at things from a higher perspective. This is a very practical ability and you are most likely aware you have it. When you have had enough of a particular problem you can step back and consciously decide to see the bigger picture. You will almost always feel exhilarated upon waking from a flying dream. This is because you have mentally overcome your problems through your dream.

Flying is symbolic of projecting your mind and this means three abilities are part of your nature. The first is absent healing – which is healing from afar. This is what Jesus performs on the centurion’s servant in the bible.

The second is that you have the ability to project your mind onto others. You can use this to good and bad effect. It is very useful in marketing, sales and teaching. Be careful not to think badly of others, as your negative thoughts can have a negative effect on them. Whether you believe in karma or not you will bring it on yourself for doing this.

The third is the ability to hypnotize others. Hypnosis is achieved by the practitioner projecting their mind onto their subject. This is regardless of other tools the hypnotist may use or believe is doing the hypnosis for them. It is their mental projection onto the mind of the subject that makes it work.

Flying with a guide in a dream indicates you are a channel. You can travel to the spirit world to communicate with spirits and bring back the messages you receive. A guide is anyone with a title, anyone who speaks with authority or anyone who offers you a gift in a dream.

Flying down and landing symbolizes your birth (arrival onto the planet).

Flying Saucer

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A flying saucer symbolizes angels / guides. Anything circular can symbolize ideals / God and in this case the divine nature of your angels. Since they are depicted in your dream as extra terrestrials, it means that you have not come to terms with the fact that you have angels looking after you or that you are equal to them.

Fog

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

fog indicates you cannot see your way from where you are now to where you need to go with regard to the subject matter of the dream.

Food

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Food symbolizes your digestive system. Food items shown in a negative way, for example exploding or spilled on the floor, indicate food you need to cut down on or cut out of your diet. For example, removing soggy milk cartons that are clogging the toilet indicates that your body cannot properly eliminate dairy products.

Food being served by a waiter, indicates you are a spiritual healer (hands-on healer) as food is the energy source that sustains us throughout our lives.

Football

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A football symbolizes ideals and goals. In dreams anything circular or spherical symbolizes this. A circle, like God, has no beginning and no end.

A football game symbolizes how you pursue your goals in life.

Forecourt

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A forecourt is a pun on court and symbolizes that you are judgmental with regard to the subject matter of the dream.

Foreign Country

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A foreign country symbolizes expansion of yourself when the country in question is larger than the country you are moving from in the dream.

Some countries have specific meanings and indicate what is required for this expansion. These symbols only hold if you are not from the country in question. If one of your parents is from that country it may also change the meaning of the symbol. It all depends on how you view the place in question. The meaning ascribed to foreign countries comes mostly from the predominant view held by historians writing about them.

The reader from a particular country listed here may find the meaning ridiculous or offensive. On my courses where I teach dream analysis, nobody from Ireland has ever gotten that it symbolizes resolution of conflict although every non Irish person sees it immediately. It will be the same for the country you are from which is why, for you, the symbolism does not hold.

Moving to another country signifies a change in consciousness. Generally you want to be moving to a country that is larger than the one you are leaving as this would indicate an expanded consciousness.

Africa, being the origin of the human species, is about getting to the root of the subject matter of the dream..

Canada indicates an expansion of consciousness through dharma. This is often referred to as living in a state of grace and is the way Jesus proposed we live. On this path you choose what you know will be spiritually beneficial to you and not necessarily what is logical.

England, due to Oxford and Cambridge universities, represents education.

France represents sexuality. The sexual revolution started in France.

Germany, due to the rise of Nazism and their belief that the Aryan race was the purest and noblest, also due to two world wars, symbolizes arrogance and a regimented way of thinking. As in all cases this does not hold if you are German. To the German reader this may seem offensive but ask any child in the developed world to tell you one thing they know about Germany and they will invariably bring up World War II.

India indicates karma, as karma has been referred to as an Indian disease. Anyone who has ever been there will testify to the general attitude of the affluent towards those with nothing. Beggars are stepped over on the street with a general view that they must not be helped as it would interfere with their karma.

Ireland, due to the conflict in Northern Ireland, represents conflict with the potential for peace.

Italy, due to the passion of its citizens symbolizes your heart and circulatory system.

Spain or any other hot country indicates the need for healing. This is because the Sun in dreams symbolizes healing.

Due to the current peace process going on in Northern Ireland, to dream of it or Belfast can symbolize the need to resolve conflict. It can also mean that you and whoever you are in conflict with are polar opposites, like the Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland.

The United States of America indicates an expansion of consciousness. Much of the Western ‘New Age’ movement has its origins in America. However, America is viewed by many non Americans as a very male oriented society and as such would also indicate being on the karmic path.

Forest

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Forests in a dream nearly always have to do with your colon. This is because paths through forests are typically brown, muddy or dirt trails and difficult to follow. Your colon is the dirt trail in your body.

Fork

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Road junctions symbolize choices ahead. A fork in the road forces you to consider your path and change direction, but not by much. The new direction will only be subtly different from your current course. Essentially the dream is telling you to make a slight adjustment in order to move onto the correct path.

Fortune Teller

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a fortune teller means that you have the gift of prophecy. Anyone with a title in a dream is a guide and whatever ability they have, you have too. Therefore you have the ability to predict the future. This is not a very common gift, even though public perception is that everyone who is psychic in any way can tell the future. The fortune teller may offer you a gift in the dream to highlight that this is indeed your gift.

Fountain Pen

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a fountain pen indicates you have a special writing ability. A fountain is a source, so a fountain pen implies that you have a creative writing source that you can tap into.

Fox

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A fox symbolizes a threat of cancer in your colon. Do not be immediately alarmed. We all develop cancer cells from time to time and our immune system deals with it. Health warnings become an issue when you persistently have them in your dreams night after night.

France

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

France represents sexuality and sexual liberation. The sexual revolution started in France. The dream is asking you to be more open minded when it comes to your attitude towards sexual activity. This meaning does not hold if you are from France.

French

France represents sexuality and sexual liberation. The sexual revolution started in France. The dream is asking you to be more open minded when it comes to your attitude towards sexual activity. This meaning does not hold if you are from France.

Fridge

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A fridge symbolizes your stomach as it is located in the kitchen (digestive system) and is used to temporarily hold food. For example, to dream of moldy bacon in a fridge shows that your digestive system cannot digest bacon properly. See Kitchen.

Front Door

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

The front door represents your vagina – the front door to the body by which someone can exit. For example, dead crows at the front door indicate a warning of cancer of the cervix. In this case the dream is also showing you that your immune system is successfully dealing with the threat.

Fruit

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Fruit symbolizes your reproductive system. Fruit is the ripened ovary, together with seeds, of a flowering plant. There is also the expression that your children are the fruit of your loins.

Funeral

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Attending a funeral in a dream is about letting go of the negative influence of either the person whose funeral you are attending, a parent or other significant person of the same gender. This influence is holding you back from doing something that will help you develop in a positive way.

Furnace

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A furnace indicates your heart and circulatory system. Symbols of fire are always linked with the heart. A furnace uses fire and also pumps water out to the extremities of a building and back. The pump and circulation are symbolic of your heart and circulation system.

Furniture

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Furniture is used to decorate rooms and as such indicates how you feel with regard to something else identified in the dream. For example, if the furniture belongs to a parent it indicates that the parent in question is the one influencing you negatively. The room being decorated can also qualify the subject matter. A bedroom is about your sexuality or sex, the kitchen is about digestion including what you eat and eating habits, a bathroom is about elimination, living room can be about the heart, and office is about the mind or career. The type of furniture can also qualify the meaning in the same way. Is it office furniture, bedroom furniture, etc?

Antique furniture indicates ideals. It is always good to have ideals and goals. However, if the ideals are not part of your life purpose and are hindering you in any way, your dreams will show this. Moving your parent’s furniture or furniture that looks like theirs into your house is a common theme here. A clash of ideals is indicated if you find yourself having to be careful not to hit against the furniture in the dream or find yourself moving it around looking for space for it.
