Birthday

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a birthday or birthday present is a dream’s way of bringing you back to your own birth. This is regardless of whose birthday is being celebrated in the dream. The rest of the dream will be about how the circumstances of your birth affect you today. This can be positive or negative.

Black

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Black on its own indicates negativity along the lines of fear, anxiety, resentment, hatred or guilt. A black stain, for example, would indicate guilt. When mixed with other colors, black adds a negative aspect to their meaning.

Black and white together indicates you have a tendency to see life or the subject matter of the dream in black and white terms. This comes across as being intolerant or extremist. You see others are either with you or against you. There is no neutral position allowed. You need to be more tolerant. Another difficulty with being black and white about things is that you judge things as being either in the right or wrong camp. If presented with a third option it must also fit into the right or wrong camp but only one idea can fit into the right one. In order to open your mind to something new, you have to first manage to move the current right idea into the wrong camp and that’s a big task to ask. If you allow for more than just right and wrong you can have many shades in-between. Then you can have something that is almost right. Not being able to eliminate concepts that are holding you back, eventually leads the body into not being able to eliminate waste matter efficiently and manifests as a slow moving colon along with the issues that can go along with that.

Black and red together indicate anger – negative passion.

Black and orange as a color combination in dreams indicates ambition driven out of fear and always indicates career. Tigers have this color combination so often symbolize career in dreams.

Blackboard

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A blackboard in a classroom indicates you have a spiritual leadership ability to work with groups and help them to expand their consciousness to take them out of the dark. Spiritual leadership works through empowering others to achieve for themselves, rather than doing something for them. It also indicates another ability which works in combination with your leadership. You also have the ability to project your mind so that when you are engaged with others, they connect completely with what you are saying. It is like you are putting your hands inside their heads and rearranging their thought process.

Blind

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of being blind can be indicative of you being blind in a past life. If you or someone else is blind in the dream it can also indicate you are unwilling to see or look for the solution to a current problem.

Blonde

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Blonde as a color indicates tolerance and acceptance.

If it is blonde hair in the dream, it signifies the character is a guide. Hair represents thoughts so the blonde hair represents purity of thought.

Blue

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Blue symbolizes expression and includes spirituality, religion, art, culture, philosophy and attitude to life itself. It is one of the most common colors in dreams and is used to show your attitude to the subject matter. If other colors are mixed with it, you are asked to do what it takes to remove them from your philosophy if they are negative (dark or polluted colors), and to add them if they are positive colors. For example, dark blue or navy, a mix of blue (philosophy) and black (negativity), indicates a negative philosophy of life or attitude towards the subject matter of the dream, while blue and white asks you to lighten your attitude or philosophy with regard to the subject matter of the dream.

Blue and gold asks you to regard your spiritual healing ability as positive in your life.

Blue and silver asks you to regard your psychic / intuitive ability as positive in your life.

Boat

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A boat can represent your physical body. Is the boat in good shape? What is the dream emphasizing about the boat?

A boat journey represents your life journey. Check out to see what else is significant in the dream as this is how the dream comments on where you are on your journey.

If your partner is with you on a boat, the dream is about your relationship.

A small boat can indicate you as a child but it can also indicate that you feel on your own when navigating through life.

A speed boat, being a source of great power, indicates you have the gift of hands on healing. Literally you have a source of great power at your disposal.

A lifeboat indicates you have the ability to rescue lost souls. This is an unusual gift and is used while your body sleeps. In actuality you can traverse the astral plane with ease. We all go there when asleep and souls who are crossing over after death can find themselves lost and confused. You and others like you specialize in finding them and helping them make their journey. You particularly use this when someone close to you dies. Apart from dreams of rescuing someone at sea, most people with this ability are blissfully unaware of it.

Body Armor

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Body armor indicates that you do not allow others to get close to you. This is always about your heart and emotions. The 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. It is not healthy for your heart to suppress your feelings over a long period of time. Ideally you are open and honest about your feelings both to yourself and to others.

Bog

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Bogs symbolize that your blood is not being cleansed properly by your lymph system.

Boiler

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A boiler indicates your heart and circulatory system. Symbols of fire are always linked with the heart. A boiler 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.

Boiling

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Boiling indicates anger. For example, a dream of milk boiling over indicates issues with mother (milk) need to be dealt with.

Bonnet

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A bonnet or hood being the access to a car engine is 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.

Book

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of a book on a specific subject means you have knowledge of that subject area. This is particularly the case when you have the book in your hands in the dream, and even more so when it is not a book that you are familiar with, or is not available in reality.

To dream of many books or a library means you have a counseling ability. In this case the books represent a depth of knowledge or wisdom that you have. This depth of knowledge can be used to help others deepen their knowledge of themselves. You have this counseling ability regardless of whether you have had formal training. Note that many countries require you to have a formal qualification before practicing counseling officially under the counselor banner.

Books on a table again mean you have a counseling ability (see many books above). However, in this case you are being told that you are responsible for developing this ability to a level where you can formally practice it.

A book’s binding is about karma you are bound to.

A book’s spine is about your spine. Threads in the spine would indicate nerves in your spine.

Border Post

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A border post is where an official determines whether you have everything required in order to pass from one state or country to another. This symbolizes the transition from one state of consciousness to another. This is especially true if you are asked questions by an official at the border 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 you what you will work at in the new location. They may even suggest a career and a salary. If they do, look up the career and salary in this book as they are symbolic of what you are being asked to do in order to develop your new state of consciousness.

Bottle

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A bottle is a common symbol for the kidneys.

A broken bottle indicates damage to the kidneys. The damage is likely to be indicated by the location where the dream takes place or by food types or drinks being shown specifically in the dream.

Boutique

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A boutique reminds you that you chose your role or attitude towards something current in your life. It is not preordained that you must only look at it from one perspective. Are you playing the role you think is expected of you? Why do you think you are entitled to the attitude you have adopted? 

Bowl

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A bowl or any vessel that carries water can represent the uterus.

A mixing bowl represents the bowel because it is a pun on bowel and also because food stuffs are mixed in it. The foods being mixed in the bowl are indicative of foods you are being asked to eliminate from your diet.

A toilet bowl can indicate elimination. If, however, there are food items blocking the toilet bowl or visible in it, you are being asked to eliminate these food items from your diet. For example, a milk carton blocking the toilet would indicate the need to eliminate dairy products from your diet.

A cracked toilet bowl warns of potential damage to your bowel. Again look for food items being specifically referenced or symbolized using color and eliminate them from your diet.

Box

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A box, being a container, symbolizes containment or limitation. It is a specifically strong symbol of limitation as it also has four sides and a lid both of which also indicate limitation. The rest of the dream will indicate what has you boxed in.

A box, through English slang usage, can also indicate the womb. An egg box in this context would indicate the ovaries or reproductive cycle. Running out of eggs in an egg box indicates the end of your fertile period for having children.

A box holding small animals to keep them safe always indicates the reproductive system. If it is crumbling or falling apart it indicates the onset of menopause.

A boxed gift indicates it is time for you to explore a new and positive aspect of yourself. Open the box (remove limitation) to discover the gift.

A person giving a boxed gift is a guide. Always heed the advice they give you in the dream.

Box Room

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A small box room at the end of a hallway can represent the uterus. Indeed any claustrophobic location can but this symbol is particularly strong because the hallway also symbolizes the womb.

Boxing Match

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

A boxing match indicates you are going through a period of conflict.

When a blow to the head is emphasized you are being warned of potential stroke. Look for other symbols to indicate the circulatory system.

Boy

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

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. 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.

Brakes

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

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.

Bread

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of bread can indicate a number of things. Taking home the bread would symbolize your income. The rest of the dream is likely to be about how your career or a financial burden is affecting something else in your life.

Soggy bread or large amounts of bread indicate that bread is clogging up your digestive system. If you find you have an intolerance to particular foods it can often be due to eating something, such as bread, that slows down your digestive system. Once slowed down, other foods have time to literally rot and produce toxins in your gut.

Brown bread is the Cockney rhyming slang for dead and indicates this in a dream. Something else in the dream will alert you to what you need to change in your life today.

Toast bread also is a pun on death. In this case, however, the connection with the heart is established as fire is required to make toast. Look for other symbols to indicate changes you need to make.

Break

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

To dream of being on a holiday break is a request to take it easy and allow some healing for your body and mind.

Breakfast

Written by Michael Sheridan on .

Breakfast is a meal time so the dream is about your eating habit or your digestive system. The word itself comes from the two words break and fast so this dream could be a request for you to eat well and avoid dieting or skipping meals. Look for someone underweight or skinny in the same dream.
