Over the weekend, I dreamt that no matter where I was, I was getting served fancy dishes of food (in those silver covered serving dishes), and every time the tuxedo-clad waiter removed the top cover, my food would be garnished with a fancy wristwatch. So, say the meal was a filet mignon, a Movado watch would be carefully placed over it (the watch was always sleek and black.) So what’s the deal with watches in my dreams?
According to my go-to dream interpretation site, DreamMoods.com:
“To see or wear a wristwatch in your dream suggests that you need to be more carefree and spontaneous. Your life is too structured. Or you are feeling limited and constrained. Alternatively, the watch symbolizes the ticking of the human heart and thus is indicative of the emotional side of your life. The dream may also be a metaphor to indicate that you need to ‘watch out.'”
As for “silver,” or “silverware,” (I don’t remember seeing silver utensils, just the serving dish):
“To see silver in your dream symbolizes the moon, intuition and the feminine aspects of yourself. It signifies tranquility and understated confidence.”
“To see or use new and fancy silverware in your dream indicates harmony in your domestic life. Things are going well. Alternatively, the dream signifies your willingness to help others and to lend a hand.”
On another night, I dreamt that I was trying to warn friends that there was impending danger (don’t remember the specifics about the danger) and I kept struggling because I had a huge black eye. It was my left eye, and it was accompanied by a huge swollen knot in my left temple. People kept asking what had happened to me and I kept saying I didn’t know. It was a frustrating dream and I don’t remember if there was ever a resolution.
Here’s what I found on Dreammoods:
To dream that you have a bruise represents stress and mounting pressure that you are dealing with in your waking life. It may also refer to a reawakening of old, family wounds that have not been properly addressed. Alternatively, the dream is telling you that you need to accept the consequences of your actions. Consider the symbolism of the specific part of your body that is bruised.
To dream that your eyes are injured or closed suggests your refusal to see the truth about something or the avoidance of intimacy. You may be expressing feelings of hurt, pain or sympathy.
To dream that you are warning someone suggests that you need to recognize the dangers or negatives of some situation. You need to bring this to the surface.
So that’s that.
As to whether these interpretations help or hinder is another blog post in itself!
