Dream Decoder: E-H

The majority of these words came from: Astrology.com
The Earth has numerous symbolic roles in dream language. Mother Earth and Mother Nature are idioms used to describe the Earth as a source of life. In dreams, this often translates to the Earth as a source of our being. Other dreams of earth include worry over having a home, being outcast, or chaos dreams involving the end of the world.Dreams that include fear of environmental destruction may appear because of news garnered from the daily headlines.
Dreams about gardens may be metaphors for your perception of your life. Well-ordered or over-run, productive or dying on the vine, such dream images reflect how we feel about ourselves.Often a garden makes up the setting for a dream in which other factors take precedence; however, the fact that your dream takes place in a garden is also significant in a minor sense.
A ghost may represent something that is gone but not forgotten-or something that is almost forgotten but that you simply cannot release.The appearance of deceased relatives usually tells of unresolved issues. In these cases, you should pay particular attention to the surroundings, the other characters present, and any unique aspects of the apparition.
What is given and to whom? This may indicate a relationship equity being worked out in the dream-a conveyance that attempts to equalize the relationship or symbolizes the nature of the deficit in the relationship.On what occasion is the gift given? If there is a particular event connected to the giving-birthday, holiday, etc.-it is valuable to see what the particular expectations of the event are. Whether or not the gift is appropriate to the expectations will say much about the event.

It may be that a gift is expected and none is available. This may reflect an inability to meet the expectations of others or of others to meet yours.

Another possibility may be that you are not understanding the expectations of others.


Gold is the universal symbol of purity and wealth. The acquisition of gold may be a display of power or wealth. The source of the acquisition as a conquest, gift, or discovery is important.Equally important is the sacred element that comes into play. How is the gold used and what kind of wealth or power does it represent in the dream? It may be that you get a golden helmet, similar to Don Quixote’s. This is an archetypal form of sacred power for completing a mission or hero quest.

Did you find, lose, give, or receive an article that is made out of gold?

Did the object make you feel better or worse?

Grocery Store
The grocery store is a place of necessity, compared to the department store of diversity and choices. To dream of being in a grocery store may be to dream of acquiring sufficiency for one’s needs. What is important is to look at whether or not the grocery is a good option for acquiring what is needed.

Does the grocery store fit your needs, or do you really need auto parts or some non-food item? This may indicate that you are looking in the wrong place for answers in your waking life.

Do your fellow shoppers seem at ease or harried, and is there a sense that there isn’t enough to go around? This may indicate anxiety over finding a mate, locating the right job, or some other limited commodity in the waking life.

Hats as noteworthy objects in dreams are not too common. A hat can be seen as an extension of power and influence in the dream. Removal of the hat by another can be taken as an invitation to confrontation. Giving a hat to another may be considered a romantic wish-fulfillment projection.Also, the presence of a hat may be related to a dream of percieved balding.In some cases, the hat is simply a reminder of another event, such as a sporting event involving a professional team, or an activity like skiing or fishing.

The helicopter is an interesting object in our culture. Originally, it was thought that the helicopter would replace the car someday. However, prices never came down, leaving the helicopter as an icon of wealth or authority. Since the Vietnam War, helicopters have become more associated with conflict than commuting.To dream of a helicopter probably means that you envision yourself in a situation of potential hazard or needing to be whisked away from your present circumstances. The former would be expressed in a helicopter as a means of escape. The latter equates images of romance and wealth.


A lot of things can happen to your home in a dream. It can be built or purchased, destroyed by the weather or war, or conquered or overrun by invaders. Most dreams about homes occur when there is transition, instability, or significant growth occurring in waking life.A home overrun is often reflective of instability in the dreamer’s relationship to the world. Feeling overwhelmed is not unusual. However, if overwhelmed is the chronic condition of your life, then being overrun by a particular sort of person or animal may reflect the source of waking anxiety.

The home destroyed may come with geographic relocation, financial pressures, death, or divorce. In these dreams, the home is being pulled apart or somehow losing its ability to provide safe haven. If this dream is occurring in your life, it is worth looking at what influences are stressing your life and the effect they are having on your waking life.

A home built is an expansive view of what is happening in your life. Perhaps you are feeling an upswing in your job or financial base that will allow you to acquire additional opportunities. Perhaps a relationship is or will be changing from dating to nesting. In any case, the home-building dream should be considered a positive one.

Because homes are often a symbol of feminine influence or the womb, interpretive questions arise logically from transitions. Are you or your partner pregnant and needing a nest for the expected progeny? Do you feel a need to involve yourself in a significant relationship with another? Do you feel rootless or too set in your ways?
