Dreams From A to Z, as Well as Colors in Dreams and Dream Numbers
What do Dracula Dreams Mean? Find out in the Dream Dictionary!
As you can tell, there have been a lot of changes at Dream Prophesy. I tried several different looks and themes until I found one that works perfectly for my dreamers. I’m trying to make it easier for you to find the meaning or meanings behind your dreams. On the front page of the website, midway down, you’ll find a huge search box that’ll allow you to enter a dream symbol and retrieve results that’ll help you interpret your dream.
There is also a search box on the side of each page of the website.
Dream Dictionary and A- Z Dream Guide
I’ve been working a lot (make that A LOT) on the dream dictionary (A – Z guide) on Dream Prophesy. New entries have been added, along with beautiful pictures. You can find the Dream Dictionary pages by hovering over Dream Dictionary in the Menu Bar at the top of each page. Simply click on the alphabetical page that best describes symbols and/or emotions pertaining to your dream.
For the best dream analysis and interpretation, be sure to look up each word you can think of that’s associated with your dream. The dream guide is growing, daily, so if you’re unable to find a word you’re looking for today, be sure to check tomorrow!
What Colors Mean in Dreams
I’ve also added a page entirely devoted to colors in dreams. Different colors actually mean different things and this page will sort it all out for you. I’ll let you in on a little secret… very often the dream’s analysis and/or interpretation has more to do with the colors in your dream than with the symbols or even emotions. You can find the link to the color guide in the menu bar at the top of each page.
What Numbers Mean in Dreams
Like colors, numbers also can carry a lot of meaning when it comes to dreams. The reason for this is simple, if you REMEMBER a particular number from your dream, it is an important piece to the puzzle. If the fact that you saw, say, 3 cats on a swing, and the number sticks with you, it is important.
If, however, you simply recall “cats on a swing,” the number isn’t important. The numbers in dreams link is also found at the top of each page.
Why Ancient Dream Guides Aren’t as Relevant Today
There are a lot of ancient, outdated dream guides and dictionaries online and in bookstores and, while I don’t want to be rude, they will not serve you as well as a very up to date dream dictionary and dream guide, such as the one on Dream Prophesy. Don’t get me wrong, they’re entertaining and I even own a few myself. They’re just kind of fun, let’s be honest.
However, if you want an accurate dream interpretation for a modern dream, you MUST have a modern dream dictionary.
Here are a few reasons:
- Ancient and Outdated Dream Guides Rely Way too Much on Luck! One of the more entertaining ancient dream guides in my collection attaches “omens,” “good luck,” and “bad luck” to just about every dream. We know, today, that that’s all a bunch of nonsense. Dreams do not tell fortunes. Do dreams sometimes seem to come true? Yes. But the reason is simple – some people are incredibly intuitive. They perceive danger, not by hocus pocus, but by keen judgement and a supremely trained knowledge of their surroundings. Some people are more dialed in to their surroundings and the world around them than others and these people can often “sense” trouble. They may detect that another individual’s actions are dangerous and could lead to trouble. If they happen to dream that this individual gets in trouble, the dream didn’t foretell the future, their own keen intuition did. Many people give their dreams far too much credit and themselves far too little credit. Dreams are not good or bad luck and they certainly are not omens.
- Outdated Dream Guides and Dictionaries Have Outdated Words. Our lingo is different than it was 10 years ago, let alone 50 years ago. It only stands to reason that if terminology changes, so do meanings and interpretations. Our dictionary is… and will continue to be… updated frequently to include new terminology and changing interpretations.
- Times Change, Period. Here’s an example I use frequently when explaining the importance of an updated, up to the minute dream dictionary: In the 1950’s, if an individual had a dream about a television, it would have carried a lot more weight than you or me dreaming about one today. Most of us, today, have more than one television, whereas in the 50’s a tv set was quite a luxury item! Here’s another favorite example – Women. Years ago, we females were viewed a lot differently than today. Thank God things have changed! Outdated dream dictionaries can be pretty condescending toward females – without really meaning to be, of course. The same is true for different races and nationalities. Think about it – we simply know so much more today than we knew then. So, if this much has changed, how can anyone think for one minute that dream interpretations don’t change?!
Finally – a reminder: Dreams are fascinating, dreams are fun, dreams are cool. They are, however, not omens and they do not determine your future. If you have a troubling dream, try to determine what’s behind it if you choose to, then walk away from it and wait for the next dream.
A Few Things Coming Up on Dream Prophesy:
In addition to diving into more dreams and dream meanings, we’re also going to start having a lot of articles and information about sleep problems, improving your sleep, overcoming things such as night terrors and recurring nightmares, etc.
Big plans! I hope you’ll help spread the word about Dream Prophesy by sharing links on social media, forums, your blog – basically everywhere you can.

Hoping your dreams are nothing but sweet! ~ Joi (“Joy”)
The dream analysis for dreaming about a honeysuckle vine is actually a little more complicated than you’d think. A honeysuckle vine is one of those dream symbols that can mean a lot of different things for a lot of different people.
The following dream scenarios are just a few:
- If someone with a severe allergy to honeysuckle dreams about a honeysuckle vine, they could be dealing with fear in their day to day life. They could also be struggling with a feeling of being “left out of” something. For example, someone with an allergy to this plant may sometimes feel “cheated” or left out by having to deal with allergies. The more allergies an individual has, the more likely they are to feel this way. In this case, dreaming about something they are allergic to could indicate that they feel they’ve been wronged, overlooked, or even cheated.
- If someone is a gardener and loves to grow beautiful plants, dreaming of a honeysuckle vine could be symbolic of goals, hopes, and dream. There is, most likely, something they are dreaming about – something they want to “grow,” so to speak.
- For many people (I’d say well over half), dreaming about a honeysuckle vine is a “return to childhood” type of nostalgic dream. Most of us remember enjoying the nectar from honeysuckle vines when we were kids. In fact, the smell of a honeysuckle vine takes me right back to being a little girl in western Kentucky! Understandably, we often long for the carefree, careless, fun days of our childhood and, in our dreams, our subconscious mind often allows us to visit sweet memories of our childhood.
Another thing to consider with a dream such as this is the surroundings. Was fear involved? Did you awaken from the dream feeling stressed, anxious, or relaxed? Each of these emotional details factor into the dream interpretation and analysis.
The Meaning Can Actually Go One of Several Ways….
Dreaming of a cemetery or graveyard (or of anything pertaining to a cemetery such as headstones or graves) can have several meanings.
For some people, cemetery dreams indicate that they either have (or have recently had) a fear of illness or a sense of impending doom – either relating to themselves or someone they love. If serious illness or any form of catastrophe has been kicking around your mind, the subconscious brain may go all in and manifest these thoughts in a cemetery-themed dream.
I guess you could say these types of dreams could be a reminder to pay careful attention to what you think about during the day!
Cemetery dreams can also symbolize the words death, dead, or dying in different… decidedly less fatal… ways. The following thoughts and comments can put the words death, dead, and dying in the subconscious mind:
- a”dying” relationship
- a “dead end” job
- being “dead in the water“
- saying “you’re killing me“
- anything that may have made you say or think, “this is going to be the death of me!“
- a pretty dramatic individual may even say something inside of them is dying.
It only takes a small thought or a single, mindless comment to produce a dream. The subconscious mind hangs on tightly to things it finds particularly interesting, then produces, casts, and directs mini-movies called dreams. More often than not, the “set location” for these mini movies have as much to do with the dream’s interpretation as the action, itself.
Some older dream dictionaries believed that cemetery dreams indicated the dreamer’s need for physical, emotional, or spiritual rest. In the past (as in long, long, long ago) cemeteries were viewed differently than they are today. We don’t associate peace, rest, and quietness with cemeteries today as much as they did in the past. Part of the reason may be the language used THEN compared to the language used NOW. A very common phrase regarding cemeteries in the past was “a final resting place.”
People also used to refer to death more as “at rest” or “at peace.” Therefore, cemeteries and graves were viewed as places of rest and peace. While this may still be true in some parts of the world – it isn’t as prevalent as it once was.
Having said all of that… if you dream of cemeteries or graves and you happen to view death as a “final rest,” you could possibly interpret your dream as your brain telling you that you need a rest.
As with most dreams, your own individual interpretation may be different from the next person’s. You have to ask yourself:
- What are my feelings about cemeteries?
- How did I feel immediately after awaking from this dream?
Your own thoughts and emotions will help direct you to your own personal analysis.
It’s worth noting, too, that if you recently lost a loved one or even heard of someone dying you hardly even knew – your mind could “process” this information by producing a graveyard or cemetery in your dream.
This Dream Interpretation Differs from Most “Lost Dreams”
We’ve looked at “Lost Dreams” before on Dream Prophesy (Lost Key dreams, for example). People frequently dream about being lost or about having lost an object or objects. Generally, when the object is something like a book, keys, or other “impersonal inanimate object,” the dream interpretation (analysis, meaning…) is pretty basic. More times than not, the dreamer is afraid of losing something in their “real world” and a scenario of losing is thereby played out in their “dream world.”
Naturally the thing they’re afraid of losing isn’t actually the book, keys, or object that’s lost in the dream. The same object (or person) COULD show up in the role, but it’s very rare.
However, when it comes to dreaming about losing your glasses (or contact lenses), the dream interpretation goes deeper. Of course, we’re talking about vision-correcting glasses, not sunglasses, drinking glasses, or other types of glasses. All of these would fall under the previous category of impersonal inanimate objects.
Eyeglasses (also: contact lenses) are one of the most personal possessions an individual can have. For those who wear vision correcting lenses, they’re the difference between sitting in a room with no windows to the outside world and sitting in a room filled with windows.
In many ways, our eyeglasses are our windows to the world and we rely and depend upon them more than anyone could imagine.
When you consider their importance and think about their vital role in the wearer’s quality of life, you can better understand WHY dreaming about losing your glasses is an intensely deep dream.
Basically, if you dream that your glasses (or, again, contact lenses) are lost or missing, it means that you are experiencing great amounts of either helplessness or self doubt in your real life – maybe even more than you realize.
Here are a few examples:
- “James” begins a new job as principal at a local middle school. Though he has the required schooling for the job, deep down he has a couple of doubts. He fears that, maybe, he isn’t experienced enough for the job. The self doubt leads to a dream where he has lost his glasses and can’t find them. He looks all around his house as well as the school. In the dream, teachers (and even a few students) tell him that he should keep up with his glasses. One student even asks, “What were you thinking?!” He awakens nearly in a panic because the dream seems so real. The rebuttal from the teachers and students is the self-rebuttal that he, himself, feels…. even down to the, “What were you thinking,” something he has probably asked himself.
- “Dottie” has been married for 45 years to “Thomas.” Sadly, Thomas has been diagnosed with diabetes and the doctors are having a horrible time regulating his sugar levels. She’s devoting most of her days trying to help her husband eat right, stay on top of his medications, and exercise – all while trying to “ride out” his unpredictable moods. Because she is so busy thinking about her husband, she doesn’t fully realize just how helpless and overwhelmed she actually feels. One night, however, she has a dream that her glasses have disappeared and everything around her is nothing more than a blur. She can’t make out her husband or children’s faces, can’t see the flowers in her flower garden, and can’t see to cook. She frantically searches for her glasses but they’re nowhere in her home. As soon as she wakes up, she reaches over to the table beside her bed to make sure her glasses are there. The dream leaves her shaken – even more shaken than she believes a dream could have the power to do.
In both instances, the dreams, themselves, aren’t what left the dreamers so shaken or panicked – it was the emotions revealed through the dream. The dreams simply pulled back a veil that let each dreamer see how fragile and raw their emotions were at this time.
I always point out that dreams (or, more to the point, their meanings and interpretations) can be VERY helpful to us. These cases are perfect examples because each individual – after their dream interpretations – realized they needed to make a few changes. “James” began telling himself that he was getting the best kind of “experience” available.. on the job experience. He also began to focus on the fact that he was hired over every other applicant – and if they put that kind of trust in him, he should put it in himself.
“Dottie” began taking more time to unwind. She found solace in reading novels in her backyard – surrounded by her 3 beautiful Dalmatians.
These are classic examples of ways our dreams can lead to better self understanding and, oftentimes, even a better life.
Usually This Dream Symbolizes Change of Some Sort
What does it mean to dream about Fall? My dream last night really doesn’t hold any interesting actions or occurrences. Nothing strange happened and no one unusual was in the dream. I was wondering what the dream meaning would be if the only thing that really stands out about the dream is autumn trees and colors? Thank you!
Autumn (or Fall) dreams generally are interpreted to dealing with “change” or “changes.” The dreamer could be excited about potential or actual changes or they could be apprehensive about them. The main thing is that a “change” of some sort is on their mind. Only the dreamer can say for certain if it’s a positive or negative dream.
Dreaming about Autumn can also have another meaning – IF the dreamer feels strongly about the season, one way or the other. For example, I love Autumn so much that a dream about Autumn, for me, can simply be interpreted to mean “great happiness” or “joy.”
On the other hand, some people cling so tightly to Summer and warm weather, that dreaming about Autumn, for them, actually indicates that they’re troubled or unhappy about something in particular.
Unless you feel especially strong about the season, your analysis is centered entirely around change – either…
- change you are going through
- change that is ahead of you
- change that you fear
- change that you know needs to take place
Only you can say for certain. I hope this helps!
