Dream Dictionary - Dreams Beginning with E and F
When using the Dream Dictionary Guide, be sure to “look up” each dream symbol, color, and number you remember from your dream as well as the emotions you felt or encountered during the dream AND upon wakening from the dream. All of these are clues that’ll help you piece together the puzzle that is your dream’s meaning and interpretation.
Eagle. To dream of an eagle or eagles indicates one or more of the following:
- For Americans, the eagle is a beautiful symbol of our country and can, therefore, represent feelings of patriotism and pride.
- Eagles also represent freedom. If you dream of an eagle, it indicates that you either feel free in some area of your life or want to feel free. It depends on how you felt during the dream. If you had a sense of longing, you’re looking for certain degrees of freedom in your life. If you felt at peace, you are enjoying these freedoms already.
- Eagles can also be symbolic of grandness. Many people who are planning something “grand” or “wonderful” dream about eagles. This could be weddings, work projects, a new home, etc.
Elevator. An elevator dream suggests movement of some type in the dreamer’s life. this could be a physical move from one home to another, a change of positions at work, a move from one school grade to another, or even “moving on” from a relationship or bad experience.
End. If a dreamer has a dream involving an ending of some sort (coming to the end of a book or game, the end of a relationship, etc) it generally symbolizes closure. More likely than not, the dreamer has recently solved a problem, ended a relationship, or finished a project. They came to the end of something and this materialized in their dream.
The end in a dream could also indicate that the dreamer wants to end something or find closure over something in particular.
Envy. Ever thought of envy as a good thing? Stick with me, in a minute you may. It’s been said that envy can have a positive outcome (to a certain extent, mind you) because it shows you what you most want in life. If you envy another’s beauty, you want desperately for others to find you beautiful. If you envy someone’s relationship, a similar relationship is what you want most in life. The same goes for clothes, jobs, money, attention, etc.
If you dream of envying another, pay close attention to what it is that you’re envying. Your subconscious mind is letting you know that this particular area matters a great, great deal to you – possibly even more than you realized.
Escalate. If you dream you or someone else is escalating a situation, it implies there is something in your life you, yourself, wish to escalate.
Escalator. An escalator can have a similar meaning to an elevator dream (see elevator, above), but it can also refer to a “fast track” to somewhere the dreamer wants to go. Generally, when you dream of an escalator, it is because you’ve been contemplating a situation, or move, you want to “escalate.”
Eviction. If you dream of being evicted – or of seeing someone evicted – it speaks more to feeling vulnerable and unaccepted than the actual eviction, itself. Many times when someone (or something) has caused an individual to feel in any way unaccepted or unwelcomed, they’ll dream of being evicted… or of seeing someone else evicted or “thrown out.”
Evil. If there is evil in your dream – and the word evil is simply the best way to describe some dreams – it speaks more to a fear you have of something than it does the evil, itself. Fear is one of the most powerful emotions, so it’s little wonder that it gets so insanely creative in dreams. Basically, our brain’s fear manifests itself in the most outlandish, frightening way possible.
Please remind yourself that these dreams are not an omen. They do not signal that something bad has happened or will happen. Evil in dreams is, again, simply your fear having a face attached to it. Unfortunately, the more creative your brain is, the more hideous this face may be. The best way to put as much distance between yourself and an evil dream is to stop thinking about it. Seriously, stop! Watch cartoons (Bugs Bunny is a cure all), reruns of Andy Griffith or Sanford and Son, or lose yourself in animal vines/videos.
Execution. Dreaming of an execution makes you a pretty creative dreamer! Gotta hand it to you, you have style. This type of dream means there is something you simply want to “get over” with – as in its completion couldn’t possibly come fast enough for you. You may have recently said or thought, “Just shoot me” and took the concept to bed with you as well.
Exercise. If you dream of exercising or seeing others exercise, you are probably thinking of “working something out” whether it’s a relationship or problem at home, school, or work.
Exercise dreams could also symbolize a strong desire to get fit (physically or mentally) or to improve in a particular area of your life.
Fingernails. Dreaming of fingernails can sometimes indicate growth of some sort – as we often think of fingernails as something we “grow.” However, they can also indicate the dreamer’s desire to “grasp” something in particular. Be sure to see the dream dictionary entry for fingers (below), as the finger(s) in your dream could also need analyzing.
Fingers. Dreaming of fingers is symbolic of something the dreamer fears losing – a loved one, health, job, money, house, etc. We generally dream of fingers when we have something dear to us that we’re afraid of losing.
Fight. To dream of a fight (conflict, disagreement, argument….) symbolizes strife in your life. You are either at odds with someone else or with yourself and fear that it will all soon come to a head. Here’s something pretty interesting, the bigger the combat in your dream, the stronger you feel about this conflict. If it is a small fight between two people, it’s a pretty small deal. However, if it’s on the scale of a full-out army battle, you are pretty stressed about it, indeed!
Very often, to dream of such a conflict indicates conflicting emotions or actions within the dreamer. He or she may feel that their actions aren’t lining up with their feelings and this may cause them to be very conflicted and annoyed with themselves.
Fire. Fire symbolizes strong, intense emotions – whether they are negative OR positive. Fire can also symbolize a feeling of strong self-confidence… as in feeling that we are “on fire.”
If we dream that we have been burned or are in danger of a fire hurting us, it speaks to a fear we have in our daily life. This fear usually involves trouble we’re afraid we are creating ourselves as opposed to someone else harming us. This probably comes from the phrase, “don’t get too close or you’ll get burned.”
If you dream of seeing a house or building on fire, it symbolizes loss – either loss you have experienced or loss you fear experiencing.
If you see a field or leaves burning, the symbolism is a somewhat more positive one. It symbolizes a doing away with the old (or what may not be working), so that new can grow or take place.
Fireworks. Dreaming of fireworks suggests there is something the dreamer either wants to celebrate or call attention to.
Flood. To dream of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes, or floods indicates that something in our life is “out of control” and we feel completely helpless and at its mercy. These disasters could symbolize a fear that something will “blow your world apart,” “carry you away,” “destroy you and everything you love,” etc.
Many people have a sense of dread about something in their life and this will cause a disaster or catastrophe themed dream.
Dreaming of a flood, specifically, can have several different meanings. Only the dreamer will know for sure which one applies. The various meanings of this dream are listed below.
- A flood can symbolize a “flood” of emotions. The dreamer could have recently dealt with particularly strong emotions or witnessed someone else do the same. Strong emotions wash over you like a flood and often leave you feeling about as helpless as a flood, too.
- A flood can also symbolize an intense fear of something that will or may happen. When many people “sense” danger or heartbreak, they will experience traumatic dreams such as this. They fear “impending” pain and their mind creates a fearful dream – many times in very dramatic ways.
- A flood – above all else – can make a victim feel completely helpless and powerless, so these emotions could also be at play. Perhaps you’ve recently felt helpless, overwhelmed, “up against it,” or powerless.
- Anything in a dream that makes you a victim can symbolize that you have recently felt like a victim in your daily life.
Flour. Flour dreams mean different things to different people. For someone who regularly cooks/bakes, dreaming of flour is a creative type dream. There is something they’re thinking about creating or planning to make.
If someone has recently had to stop eating wheat or gluten due to health reasons or a diet they’ve adopted, a flour dream may be their mind’s way of coming to grips with the changes.
For many people, flour represents the color white, therefore the dream interpretation would involve the dream color more than anything else. See our Dream Color Chart for more information.
A REMINDER: The Dream Dictionary is a very “fluid” section of Dream Prophesy, in that it is forever changing. I add dream symbols and entries to the dictionary regularly and often even “flesh out” or “add to” old entries. Why? Because symbolisms change regularly. If the exact same dreams were experienced in, say 1975 and 2015, the interpretations would be vastly different. Different things symbolize different things over time and, therefore, the meanings change. This is why outdated and “ancient” dream guides are inaccurate.
The only accurate dream dictionary or dream guide is the one frequently updated.
