Online Database of Past Dream Interpretations: Dreams About Work

Here's my dream... 
 

I am a married woman but I keep having dreams about being arm in arm with a man from work. Every time I dream about him we are together - not having sex, but walking arm in arm. We have known and worked with each other for ten years but have absolutely no attraction for one another. Please explain.
In all likelihood, the man is a symbol for "work," and your dreams are work-related. Depending on what is happening in the dreams, the dreams could be reassurance about your life's direction with your company or they might simply be reflecting some of the issues and thoughts you have been having about your job. In a dream, people can symbolize whatever we most associate with that individual. Therefore, in addition to work, whatever else this man reminds you of could be a symbol for what the dream is about. For example, if he just bought a new house, then the dream might symbolize that you too are about to move, buy a new house, or change locations.

I want to share two dreams. I am very interested in politics and want to run for public office someday, so these dreams are really interesting to me. I had a dream where I was being sworn in as Vice President of the United States, but all I could see was my Bible and the Chief Justice, everything else was blurry. I have been wondering what this meant. My other dream is something that when I woke up, I thought was real. I had a dream where I was invited to appear on "Meet the Press" and I was all excited but when I woke up I was very confused on what was real and wasn't. My dream ended when I was heading to the airport to be on the show, it was weird since I am only 15 and I was asked to be on the show at my current age.
At the very least, both dreams suggest that your thoughts of pursuing a career in politics may be exactly what you should be doing. In addition, there could be a literal element involved in that the "height" of politics you reach may be beyond what you have been imagining. The fact that there is some sense of "blurriness" to both dreams suggests that (because of the influence of Free Will) the future has yet to solidify. Good luck on your dreams. Let us know what happens!

I dreamed I saw my computer on in clear site of everyone in the office. There was a split screen, both with the same message in great big letters - one screen had my name on it; the other screen had a co-worker in my office who I hardly ever see any more because our company is so huge. Both of the split screens, side-by-side, said BANKRUPT. I felt embarrassed and humiliated as it was as though this information was being broadcast to everybody who looked at the screen. In real life, I do not have any financial difficulties, so I figured it probably has nothing to do with money but with something else in my life. Could it mean my job is at an end? Or could it mean my life in general is just bankrupt - meaningless?
Although both of your interpretations could be appropriate, a more likely interpretation might be that part of you has begun to feel that your worklife (as opposed to your life in general) is meaningless, an that you have begun to wonder what it really is that you want to do. If this is the case, then let me recommend the book, Discovering Your Soul's Purpose, by Mark Thurston. Good luck to you.

Here's my dream... 
 

I am at the headquarters of the company I work for. My boss is a visionary and has planted two olive trees in the central plaza of the building as a token of his vision. I haven't watered the olive trees for some time now, and they've withered. They're nearly dead or appear to be so, but they are not. I feel sad. (I'm particularly worried about this dream and its possible connection with the Revelation of St John, chapter 11.)
First of all, the dream appears to be about work. Second of all, from Edgar Cayce's perspective the Revelation of John has absolutely very little to do with external world events and is instead about each soul's own growth in consciousness and attunement. (For more information on Cayce's insights on the Revelation, let me recommend the book Soul Signs: Life Seals, Aura Charts, and the Revelation by Kevin Todeschi.) That said, the dream seems to suggest that part of you may feel as if you have been neglecting your responsibilities at work, or (worse yet) your supervisor has noticed that you have been neglecting your responsibilities at work. Alternatively, the dream could also suggest that you have lost much of the enthusiasm and drive that was originally a part of your desire to work at this company. Overall, the dream seems to be about you deciding what it really is you want to be doing with you life at this particular time, and how that desire fits in (or not) with your present place of employment. I hope that helps. By the way, chapter 11 of the Revelation is really about "personal purification" and the attunement process.

How literal do we take our dreams when it comes to answering questions we put to God in prayer? I have been in great conflict for years over making a decision. I asked if design/decorating was a good field for me to go into. While I feel passionate about it, I have another interest as well in holistic health/nutrition. In real life, we are choosing tiles for remodeling our bathroom. In my dream, I stood in a bathroom with small tiles on the floor. Thought it too busy-looking. Didn't care for it. The bathtub was also made of mosaic tiles and I thought, "No, that definitely has to go!" The second night, I dreamt of my (deceased) father-in-law. I remember telephone communication with someone. I had found out after many years, that when everyone would refer to him as "being at the shop," he was at the "pharmacy," and I thought, "after all these years, I now know what his is)." Also dreamt a skateboarder did a high-flying, dangerous stunt where he jumped off the board and slid his body down the downspout on the side of the house. I showed my young son and told him, "don't try that." I sense that design is not the area I should go into. And though I am passionate about it, I feel I want to do "what I should be doing." I am a stay-at-home mom and do not want to work yet. Your thoughts?
In brief, I think that - from several angles - the dream is suggesting that being a mother is what you're supposed to be doing right now, and that you are essentially too busy for anything else. The fact that the bathroom mosaic tile was too busy and had to go probably indicates that right now there is a great deal of chaos in your life and something has to go. The dream about not knowing what your father-in-law did while he was at the shop, and then finally knowing after all these years, suggests that part of you wonders what you're supposed to be doing even while you're doing it (e.g. being a mother) and that you'll get a clearer sense of your personal mission later on. The skateboarder incident suggests that your children still need your supervision and guidance. Overall, I don't think the dream is suggesting or not suggesting design or holistic health - instead it is suggesting that right now you are too busy to do anything but deal with being a loving, supportive, guiding mother. You'll know the next step when it's time.

I am a 48-year-old mother with three sons. Last night I dreamed that my oldest son and I were at some beach or something. I was looking to buy an ice cream machine for making ice cream at home. My son suggested that I not buy the one that I was looking at and that there was someone on the boardwalk that had a nicer one. My son then went swimming and it seems for a short while I was in the water too. Then I wasn't in the water and my son drowned on purpose. Someone informed me that he was in financial trouble. I really don't understand that because he isn't in financial trouble. However! I am currently been unemployed for almost a year and am currently seeking employment. Although I have excellent skills, people seem to always feel I'm over qualified and do not hire me. What could this dream mean?
The dream has several possible interpretations. Part of the answer may be connected to whatever your eldest son does for a living - especially if he is self-employed. My sense is that the dream could be suggesting that whatever it is you have been pursuing is the type of work you will be doing, but you may end up doing it as an independent contractor out of your own home business, at lease for a short time. If your son is self-employed, you might ask for his advice. At the every least, he might know of some connections for you in the work you want to pursue. Also, his "drowning on purpose" could be a warning sign for you and/or your son not to get in "over your head" in terms of some financial situation or business.

Last night I dreamed that I was sitting at my desk and I saw something move in the parking lot. I got up and looked out the door and 2 chickens were out there dancing. I thought it was odd and humorous. I told my boss what was going on and he came and stood behind me to watch. Then I saw a peacock, then another and another and another until I realized there were about six of them. Most of them had their tail feathers fanned out. One started walking toward me. When he got close he turned and I was able to reach out and touch his beautiful feathers. As this was happening my boss had his arm on the door and almost around my waist and I heard a voice say, "He has chosen you." I need to say my boss is a happily married man and I have no "feelings" for him. There has never been anything between us.
In all likelihood the dream is providing an overview of some of the behaviors currently occurring at work. The chickens are reminiscent of the saying: "a chicken with its head cut off," suggesting that a couple of the people in the office are running around not really clear what it is they should be doing. Many of the others, it seems, are trying to "show off" to the boss. However, in spite of everyone's behavior, it would appear that the boss is aware of you and has been watching you. In other words, the dream might be suggesting that you are about to be handpicked for a promotion or raise of some kind.

I am a manager at a large corporation. We are not having financial difficulties, however, headcount was frozen for 2005. When I first started managing the department, it was a very beleaguered group. In the last two years I have been there we have been able to meet or exceed the company's expectations for our department, and have enjoyed success. I dreamt that I got a phone call from a person in HR at our company while I was at home. He had some news to tell me that he just couldn't get to, so I asked him if I was going to have to lay people off. He said No. Then I asked what was it and he still couldn't tell me. So I asked if I was losing my job, and the answer was, "Yes," and I knew it was because I made too much money. I kept saying "Oh my God" over and over, and was fearful because I knew the department and the current supervisors were not ready for me to leave. There are no signs that anything like this will happen. I get along with my boss well and have the confidence of the senior managers. I don't know if this was an anxiety dream, or what I am supposed to interpret from this.
The dream may be a literal warning dream, encouraging you to begin looking for other options before the call from HR actually comes. If the dream is simply a metaphor, it suggests that - in spite of your success - you are still somewhat insecure about your worth and your value to the company.

I work at an airport for an airline, and I dreamed that there was a terrorist attack at the airport I work for. I was in the midst of the attack, and was also trying to help kill the terrorist. I actually took the lead and was helping kill them off so that the other employees that were being held hostage would be able to get away without being harmed.
The dream suggests that the airline is having trouble and that there may be layoffs of some kind in the near future. In other words, the terrorists are symbolic of outside influences that would take the employees hostage. Your role in the dream suggests that you either possess some kind of "bargaining" influence with the airline, or that by taking advantage of - what might be called a voluntary resignation - you end up saving someone elses job.

This is one of four dreams I have had that I believe must be some type of past life. (All of them were so much more than a dream and so real.) In this dream I was a young girl (19?). I was in a medieval castle (France?), always looking over the rampart waiting for my husband to come to take me back. Apparently I had been taken from my home by some type of raiders...I was told by some old women (a shaman) that I would die in childbirth at the age of 19. Next image was of me on the ramparts always looking out to sea for my husband. I had images of him crossing the ocean on ships looking for me and also images of him riding on horseback through forests looking for me. Next image I have is me again on the ramparts looking out to sea waiting for him but somehow I know I had died (in childbirth) and I was a ghost still on the ramparts looking out to sea awaiting him and wondering why he never came in time.
Your dream does sound like a past-life experience but as suggested in the dream archives we don't simply dream about past lives at random; they are generally connected to present-day experiences and patterns. With this in mind, depending on what is currently occurring in your life, I think the dream is either suggesting that you are in the process of waiting for something that you desperately want, and yet you feel like you have no control over its manifestation, or it might be suggesting that the relationship you long awaited in the past is about to make an appearance in your present. In either case, you had the dream now because your subconscious mind is trying to use past events to bring to your awareness something that is going on in your life right now.

I was recently fired after 12 years as a mental health counselor/case manager. The boss that fired me had only been there a few months, and he scared me so bad I would have nightmares, as he harassed me so much I was put on depression medicine and heart medicine because of stress. Now, every time before I go on a job interview, I have nightmares that this man is there to interview me. I actually did nothing wrong to be fired and I have a lawsuit against the company.
The two most likely interpretations follow: If the experience has made you insecure and somewhat withdrawn from your former behavior, the dream is suggesting that your anxiety is coming through every time you have an interview and that anxiety is going to affect whether or not you get a new position. The second likely possibility is that if you feel and act completely normal when you go on these interviews, the dream is suggesting that your act of suing your former employer is going to follow you wherever you go, most likely damaging your prospects of getting a new job. Only you can decide which of these interpretations is most likely in your situation.

I dreamt that I was late for work. In real like I get to work before the sun comes up but in my dream I got there as the sun was coming up.

The most likely interpretation is that part of you may feel behind or late or uncertain as to how you will accomplish all of the things you need to do at work (or even in your life in general). Another possibility is that the dream could be suggesting that you are about to have a new beginning in your life.

I really need some help here. I have had several dreams about a co-worker of mine who is married and has two kids. All I can remember about most of the dreams is that it is normally just me and him and we are very close, such as hugging, kissing and holding hands. I am not married myself and am single. He and I are good friends too. Does this mean I have a crush on him or am in love with him? Please help, it is really affecting the way I act around him. Thank you.
If the dream is literal, it could be reflecting possible feelings between the two of you. However, a metaphorical interpretation is just as likely. In this regard your male coworker could be a symbol for work or for your working relationship with him. If he symbolizes work, it suggests that you really feel like you have found where you belong in terms of your occupation, perhaps even to the point of being "married" to the company. If your coworker symbolizes the relationship between the two of you at work, then it may suggest that you are going to end up working on a project together and perhaps deepen your relationship (not necessarily romantically).

I have been retired for 15 years. For the past two years I have dreamt about my job. What is curious to me is that I go into work and find out they don’t need me. Also I dream of calling in sick and cannot find the phone number. I am very perplexed about this dream.
These dreams may simply be suggesting that part of you is frequently wondering, “What is the purpose of my life right now?” or “What am I supposed to be doing?” or “Does anybody really need me to do something?” In other words, part of you may be looking for your specific “life mission” at this period in your life. If this is the case, I would recommend the book: Discovering Your Soul's Purpose, by Mark Thurston, which you can find at ARECatalog.com.

What does it mean when you dream about having sex with your boss when you don’t even think about him in that way?
The dream has many possibilities. From a metaphorical perspective, it might simply be suggesting that you and your boss are going to end up in a project together at work and really enjoy working together. From a literal perspective, it might indicate that your boss is having sexual fantasies about you. Another possibility is that your subconscious mind is picking up on a possible past-life relationship that the two of you once shared. A final possibility might simply be that the dream is encouraging you to work on a closer relationship (not necessarily sexual) with this individual.

I am 27-years-old and working as an accountant. Currently I am very depressed at my work place and I want to change my job desperately. On the day of my dream I had gone for an interview at a bank position. I would like to know if my dream is related to my career. I dreamt that a lady, who is a distant relation of mine back in my hometown, was about to have a birthday party. All the party arrangements were done my elder brother. I saw many people; all of them were very happy. Everybody was giving compliments to my brother. But I didn’t have a look at the lady nor did I see the cake. Since the lady’s house is quite near our temple, everybody was saying that after the party we would go to the temple. My brother and I were walking towards the temple when I woke up. Thanks for your help.
The dream may be suggesting that you are about to celebrate (e.g. birthday party) some kind of a return to doing what it is you really want to be doing or perhaps dreamt about doing in the past (e.g. your old hometown, as well as the distant relative). Everything that you need to do to obtain the new job has been done (e.g. all the arrangements have been made). The job is also going to either help you reclaim an interest in personal spirituality (e.g. the temple) or the fact that you will no longer be depressed will encourage you to pursue your personal spirituality. It all sounds very positive

I am a 43-year-old taxi driver. I have been depressed for the last 4 weeks and have not been to work. Last night I had a dream where I saw a friend who has passed away who had worked with me. My friend and I were talking and going to pick up a customer; my friend knew where to go and was showing me a map, which had the route to take. When I looked at the map it was blurry and I couldn’t see it, as I need reading glasses. As we are driving along, I saw my brother-in-law, who is alive, driving along with us. We are driving on a deserted road where there are no homes – just miles of field everywhere. I asked my friend, “Where are we going and where is the house?” Then I woke up.
Since you associate your deceased co-worker with work, the dream suggests that your occupation as a taxi driver seems to be coming to an end – the job is “dead.” In fact, in all likelihood, you no longer have any desire to continue in this particular position. The reason you are with your brother-in-law could suggest that you are going to be doing more the kind of work he does, or that you are going to feel about your new job the way he feels about his, or just as his work may have recently changed yours is going to change. In other words, whatever you associate with your brother-in-law and work has an important meaning for you personally. Finally, the fact that you’re not really sure where you’re headed in the dream could indicate that you’re not really sure where you’re headed in real life but don’t worry, it appears as if things are going to change soon and you will be lead to where you need to be. Good luck to you!
