If a specific type of flower appears in your dream, the first step on your road to interpreting it is to find out whether it awakens a personal association. For example, daisies may trigger happy memories of childhood when you spent hours in the sunshine with your friends making daisy chains, whereas lilies may trigger unhappy memories because they bedecked a loved one’s funeral. If, however, the flower in your dream evoked no special memory, then your unconscious may have tapped into the universal symbolism associated with certain flowers. In past times, each individual flower had a traditional meaning and your unconscious may be accessing this knowledge to illustrate a point or convey a message to you. This is especially true if you are given flowers or are giving flowers to another person.
If you are intrigued by the possibility that a specific flower in your dream may be sending you a message, the information below may help. It might also be worth researching the medicinal, historical and secular associations of the flower, as well as its spiritual symbolism. Another tip is to take the name of the dream flower into consideration as your dreaming mind may, for example, have featured a rose to remind you of a special friend called Rose, or if you dreamed of a bleeding heart wilting, is someone close to you heading for a broken heart? Don’t forget, however, that a specific flower may have individual meanings for you, so if the emphasis in your dream seems to be on one particular species, try to recognize any possible personal connections first....

If you lose something in your dream, this suggests that you have become distracted in waking life and have lost sight of what really matters. Ask yourself what it is you have lost and what it may symbolize. It may be an opportunity, a relationship, a way of thinking or even your own identity. Do you no longer feel as if you belong somewhere? Alternatively, the image may be a symbol of something that is missing from your life that you never had in the first place. For example, if you lost your car, you may have lost a sense of direction; if you lost money, you may feel you’ve lost your self-confidence or something you value about yourself; if you lost your key, have you forgotten a solution to a problem or perhaps the key to self-knowledge? If you simply can’t work out what significance your lost object has to you, it might help to do a free association exercise (write down the first 10 or so words that immediately come to mind in relation to that symbol) to decipher the lost object’s symbolism, to decipher what it is that you need to find.
If you dream that you are recovering lost property, the nature of the property recovered, together with the feelings of relief and joy it brings, will indicate the focus of your dream. For example, if you recover your purse, this is linked to identity and a renewed sense of self.
If you recover your wallet, this is linked to finances. Do you now feel in a stronger position? If you recover a camera are you trying to hold on to memories or seeking a false sense of security? If you recover lost clothes are you seeking a new self image? If you recover shoes are you recovering your footing? If you recover your lost phone are you re-establishing communication with some one?... The Element Encyclopedia

These, like books, are symbols of information and knowledge but because their contents are more temporary and disposable, they don’t tend to share the symbolism of wisdom with books. The main function of newspapers in waking life is to keep you informed and that is why they can have the same meaning as radio or news bulletins. So if you dreamed of passing a news stand and seeing a headline, the message of that headline may have personal significance for you. If, on the other hand, you dreamed of scanning the newspaper for a news item or advertizement, this may indicate your anticipation or desire to hear some kind of news or result in waking life. Alternatively a dream in which you are flipping through a magazine may suggest that you have become bored with your life and that you are looking for stimulation.
If you remember pausing over a specific article in your dream, perhaps your unconscious is urging you to consider its message or to take time out of your routine to enjoy yourself.

Male and female sexuality, as well as family life in general, are symbolized by the utensils and vessels used in cooking. The cooking fire or oven is traditionally the focus of the household and can symbolize the deepest center of your being; something burning in the kitchen should therefore alert you to problems in your family life.
If you are preparing a meal in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a quest for love and affection.
If you are frying food in your dream, there is the constant risk of getting burned; the smoke billowing around your kitchen may be warning you that a problem could get worse if you avoid it or don’t deal with it. Cinders or a grate in your dream kitchen can represent ruined hopes as well as the potential of projects yet to be born.
If you dream of a kettle, even though its spout it is a symbol of male sexuality, it suggests that someone can get hurt if passions are not handled carefully. On the other hand, it could also indicate your present mood: steamed up and about to explode. At the other extreme, the image of a broken kettle may mirror feelings of emptiness, as if all zest for life has gone.
If you are cooking with pots and pans, the association is with male or female sexuality, depending on whether the pot or the handle is featured.
When a cup is seen to represent female sexuality, drinking out of it is erotic wish-fulfillment.
If it is hurled across a room by a man, it may express fear of, or anger towards, female sexuality; if by a woman, the dream suggests that the dreamer is using sex as a weapon. For Jungians, the cup is a homely symbol of the abundance of life’s opportunities; it is also a symbol of self-realization in that it is an echo of the Holy Grail. A full or overflowing cup often symbolizes excitement and new opportunities, but an empty or smashed cup indicates the opposite.
Cutlery in dreams may suggest a desire for domestic security or the taming of aggression. Spoons may have a similar symbolism to cups, but they can also represent a desire to be spoonfed. A teaspoon may be telling you to take things in one step at a time. A silver spoon may refer to someone you envy. A colander or sieve may be seen as standing for the process of developing a new outlook on life and sifting out unhelpful attitudes and ideas. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia
One of the most common dreams of early childhood is that there is something scary in the bedroom: a monster in the wardrobe or aliens in the corner of the room. A child may feel as if something or someone is coming to get them. These kinds of dreams tend to reoccur and it is easy to assume that something is upsetting the child in waking life; it is worth noting, however, that these dreams are amongst the most common in childhood, as a child reaches out to discover the world with all its excitement—and sometimes dangerous possibilities.
If there is tension in the home or a lot of uncertainty and inconsistency, this can trigger stressful dreams for a child. Scary monsters tend to represent people, whereas bugs or slimy things may represent situations. You may have to be patient and gentle, and create a feeling of stability as your child learns to adjust to changes in the world around them.... The Element Encyclopedia
(Changing form) Transformation by substitution in a dream where one thing is converted into something else.
If a withered tree is transformed into a blossoming one in a dream, it means political changes, changes in worldly conditions, or reversal of conditions from good to bad, or from bad to good. This element includes the transformation of inner substances or physical ones.
For example, if sees himself as an old person in a dream, when in real life he is young, it means progress in his spiritual life and gaining honor.lfhe is an old person and sees himself as a young boy in a dream, it means indulging in wrongdoing.
If one sees a known old person regaining his youth, it means that the material conditions of the person seeing the dream will turn around to one’s advantage or otherwise. i.e., richness into poverty and vice-versa, or ifhe is sick, he will recover from his illness.
If one is transformed into a beautiful shoot of green or a blossoming branch of a tree in a dream, it means that he may die within a short time. Becoming taller in a dream means longevity, prosperity, or begetting a son. Ifone finds himselfmissing partial mental keenness or physical abilities or a limb in a dream, it means that he may suffer losses relating to his worldly interests.

Ifhe turns into a pig in a dream, it means prosperity surrounded with absence of human dignity.
If one sees a steer transformed into a wolf in a dream, it represents a government employee who will turn unjust. However, according to Islamic interpretations of the human transformation into a lower category of creatures phenomena, if such transformation takes place in real life, it connotes a curse and a punishment, and it does not last for more than three days, and it will culminate in death.

Any dream in which an obvious change occurs in one of the dream figures shows transformation. Each of us go through major transformations during growth— not just physically, as when we change from a toothless baby to a walking, toothy child, but also psychologically.
Example: ‘On a hot summer day I was walking with a beautiful black woman through countryside. She stopped and told me she had a problem.
To show me she pulled down the strap of her dress. On her shoulder the black skin was peeling to reveal golden white skin underneath. She said that if she kept seeing me she would become completely white. She was going to ask advice from her mother about what to do. As we walked on two black men fought with me. They wanted to take her back to the village. I woke feeling I was winning’ (paraphrased from The Way of The Dream, Fraser Boa). Here the dreamer is relating well to his own feelings of sexuality and sensuality. However, he is beginning to see a female partner as a real person, not just as his sexuality paints her. Also, the reference to seeking advice from the mother suggests his ability to love is still not freed from emotional and erotic connections with his mother, and needs transforming. One often hears people, even in their 40s, saying It is difficult (developing a relationship) with that person because my mother doesn’t like them.’ The dreamer ‘fights’ the opposing drives, which want to take the man’s love back to the village, his childhood level of love—thus he moves towards becoming independent in love and life.
The transformation is towards mature love and relatedness.

1- Dreams where obvious changes occur and things are transformed into something else suggests a shift in awareness.
A landscape may change from dark to light (negativity to positivity), a person may change from masculine to feminine or one image may change into another. Once the dreamer understands the change is for the better, he is able to accomplish changes in his own life.
As the growth to maturity takes place, there are many transformations which occur. These arc often depicted in dreams as immediate changes, like a speeded-up camera filming an opening flower.

If a symbol representing some part of your unconscious self undergoes a transformation in the course of a dream, it probably means that you are being asked to revise your opinion of that part of yourself - usually, to take a more favourable view of it.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Dreams in which obvious changes occur, and people and things are transformed into something or someone else, suggest changes in awareness. A landscape might change from dark to light (negative to positive), a person may change from male to female, or objects may take on human characteristics. These changes are often depicted as occurring immediately in dreams, like a speeded-up movie, and they reflect changes in waking life.
Bizarre transformations of objects into living things, such as a pencil turning into a snake, a doll into a donkey or a table into a swarm of wasps, suggest untapped potential within you that can help you cope with change. To clarify what this potential is, refer to the symbolic interpretation of the objects that have been transformed. Shape-shifter dreams, in which people you know suddenly transform into something else, typically a monster or beast, represent unpredictable people in your waking life. For example, someone might be kind and caring towards you until they transform under the influence of alcohol. On the other hand, the shape-shifting may be some kind of moral test.
Can you uncover the beauty behind the monster’s mask? What lies below the outer skin of the dream beast? Try to make a connection to your waking life.
Sudden changes from winter to spring in a dream, or from night to day, may also suggest new directions and developments in the dreamer’s life.
If the other way round, and the switch is from day to night, or spring to winter, this may suggest the need to confront and deal with dangerous impulses.
If the landscape suddenly becomes unfamiliar in your dream, this can point to an unwillingness or an inability to cope with the new. However, if the new environment is welcoming and friendly this is a positive sign. A return to the comfort of the childhood home or a familiar environment is widely interpreted by Freudians and Jungians as a desire to return to the security of the womb during times of change and conflict.
If something is transfigured in a dream, such as when an object or person is surrounded by light, this suggests that light has entered the person during a period of transition and they are becoming more self-aware.
If you become invisible in your dream, it can indicate that you feel ignored in waking life—that you and your life are insignificant to others. It can also mean that you are hiding from others or yourself.
If you have this type of dream, it might be time to look at how you present yourself to other people.... The Element Encyclopedia
A man’s first close relationship with a woman is with his mother, so a dream in which his mother transforms into another woman can be symbolic of a kind of growth, as it shows that he can let his mother go. Depending on the circumstances of the dream, this transition indicates some kind of positive or negative change in his perception of women. By the same token, a woman’s first relationship with a man is typically with her father or brother and to progress onto fuller relationships she must learn to walk away from those relationships.
Therefore if she dreams that her father transforms into another man, this indicates some kind of positive or negative change in her perception of men, although much depends on the circumstances of the dream and the woman’s feelings about it.
Dreams in which parents, family members or partners behave completely out of character—for example, your gentle mother transforms into a cruel tyrant or your teetotal father transforms into a raging alcoholic—can be extremely unsettling, as they turn what you regard as accepted truths on their heads. Such dreams have little to do with real-life family members or loved ones; far more are they to do with unresolved aspects of either your life or yourself that you need to confront and work on in order to find fulfillment. In such cases, your unconscious mind may have conjured up parental or family archetypes to bring neglected issues to your attention or to warn you of an authority figure who presents a threat to you in waking life. For example, perhaps the controlling father in your dream represents your boss who is stifling your individuality, or your nurturing dream mother is telling you to mother yourself or someone close to you.
