Dream Dictionary

Online Dream Dictionary & Encyclopedia by Tony Crisp

(Posts that have any adverts or links to other sites will be deleted).

This a non-profit site and it offers real dream interpretations – not dream dictionary features that are not real interpretations – and for which we ask no payment, but it would be a great help if you clicked on the Facebook and other links to like what we do. 

Also, I am alone in working on your dreams, and it takes time so I cannot always keep up with the number of request you send. Also I am revising the dictionary – a long business – so please look at the dozens of replies at the very end of the ‘comment’ section, hopefully you will find something helpful. Also it is important to give a full account of your dream - see Give Us Enough Information. 



Also be aware that I offer a personal dream interpretation service. You can access this by putting a full explanation of your dream in the ‘Leave a Comment’ box at the top right of most dream dictionary pages. Or if you click on the Discussion Forum you can have a personal interpretation and see thousands of dreams already interpreted, completely different to the dream dictionary.



I know how much you might like to skip the introduction, and if you are tempted to do so, please, please read Summing Up. Without understanding the things given there you are likely to completely miss the point of understanding your dreams.

Your dreams can become vortexes of power to transform your life, and to enhance your perceptions. There is no ‘wave a magic wand’ route to this. It will not happen because you read a great book, or look at a good dream dictionary. Those things might help, but the real magic lies in whether you can enter into your dream in the right way. Try using Meaning of Your Dream

But you can start right here by entering a dream image and clicking the search symbol – or you can read some fuller information below about the dictionary and how best to use it. The easiest way to find something is to enter it in the box below or in the search box on each page.

What does my dream mean? – How to explore your dream meanings:

It is important in reading the definitions of dream images to realise that not every possible meaning can be covered. So please see if you get the idea of what is being said and allow your own imagination/feelings to fill in the meaning.

There are several ways you can understand the meanings held in your dreams, and there are several levels. The first is an easily understood level, followed by greater depths:

  1. You can enter a key word in the search box above. The Dream Dictionary contains interpretations on almost any type of dream subject. So if you dreamt of a flying saucer landing in a field, and aliens getting out and taking a baby,  a snake, and a pregnant dog back into the saucer, you could search separately for each of these subjects in the Dream Dictionary. Find the entry for flying saucer; then the entry for dog, baby,  snake,  pregnant, and so on. For each entry, find further related entries by looking under “Similar Articles” on the right hand side of the page. Then see Techniques for Exploring your Dreams
  2. Each entry gives the general meaning of the dream subject, just as an encyclopedia or dictionary does for a word. Several possible meanings are given. This is because as with our speech the position of the word – the context – gives it special meanings. So a hot dog would be quite different to a black dog, dog-end or dead dog. So when you read an entry which has several different meanings, sometimes with a ‘;’ between, it simply means any one of them could apply. So you need to think about the feelings in your dream, the context, the other imagery used. Please do not fall  into the trap that one reviewer made of saying that the whole dictionary is about sex. Of course sex is one meaning among many others. So use your own sense of your dream as well as any definitions given. See Meaning of Your Dream
  3. To really explore the meaning it is useful to use the Dream Dictionary as it is designed, rather than arrive at a ‘thought out’ interpretation. To see a working example of this see Dream Interpretation Example One’

Below are links to the full explanation and introduction to the complete Dream Dictionary Ultimate. You will see that it is being enlarged and improved all the time.

Introduction to the Dream Dictionary Ultimate

Tony Crisp has been interested in the health of mind and body since his early teens. I began writing about these subjects in 1956. My fascination for what lay under the surface of the mind led me to personally explore the unconscious using dreams and other mental and physical disciplines.

From 1972 till ‘94 I worked as a psychotherapist using an eclectic, Humanistic Psychology approach which included dream work and releasing the secrets the body holds. My books include Do You Dream; The Instant Dream Book; and Liberating The Body and many more. See My Books also Life’s Little Secrets

During those years I has worked as a dream columnist for The Daily Mail, and She Magazine. I was the regular dream interpreter for the London Broadcasting Company; I ran Teletext’s dream page on UK television’s Channel Four; and also for New Zealand Teletext and now run this web site giving dream help as well as many features on subjects connected with the  human inner world.

Throughout more than five decades I have been involved in a personal search for the secrets of mind and spirit. In those years I have also taught thousands of people techniques of deep relaxation, meditation, and methods of self exploration using dreams. Wanting to dig deep I explored the use of dreams and taught individuals and groups of people how to use these visions of the night to discover and heal the deepest issues in themselves, and to touch the high ground of their spiritual awareness. I worked for twenty years as a psychotherapist using several approaches, one of which was a way of honouring the body as a doorway to the unconscious mind, the emotions and spiritual experience. See The LifeStream

During the sixty years of seeking the wild wondrous beasts of the mind and spirit I dared my own inner adventure. But I also travelled with other people as an ordinary person, not a therapist, sharing their experience of fear and wonder as they unveiled and set loose their fountain of perception. I have travelled countless dream pathways, traversed the timeless with those using awareness enhancing drugs, and wrestled with the vitality of the body as people mimed and shouted their deepest intuitions through movement, dance and voice.

Tony wanted to say hello I hope you’re doing well this is Magda in Arizona

I’ve been meditating a lot and doing Kundalini and with that my dreams have become more bizarre and I can actually remember them. And I feel all my current dreams have deeper meanings from my angels or guides. The one I had a few hours ago started off with my bestfirends and I walking down a dark street, a car within group of teenagers pulled up next to ,attempting to rob us. But we threw our bags and phones over the wall into a strangers yard. The thief’s or robbers whatever they are knew that we threw our stuff over the wall and send two of them to go get the stuff. They then led us to the pickup truck they had ,putting us on the back.. Fast forward. I didn’t want them to get my phone from the stranger yard so I fought with the guy holding me ,thus pushing him of the truck onto the ground. At that time I didn’t pay much attention to that , and went of the truck into the yard. Which was weird because we chose to threw our phone s into that yard because of all the sharp spikes it had and all if a sudden I could get in without payinguch thought to them there I took our phones before our (let’s call them kidnappers for now) and the them into the house itself because a old man opened the door.

That made them give up on it but they still took us and when I got back on the truck one of the girls that was with the kidnappers told me that I had killed their friend (the guy who was holding mwband then I pushed him off the truck). Apparently the impact to the ground killed him, I looked on the ground and saw him laying there not dead,and I can remember from him is that he was wearing a grey hoodie.

Fast forward they wanted us to rob some place to get the phones that I threw in the house. But before we reached the place my dream changed to another dream at a hospital where my best friend died (in the dream) my mom and other family members were there and I cried but whenever I’d see them I’d stop crying because I didn’t want to cry in front of them.

The dream changed back to the kidnapping dream and from that point of I was no longer part of the dream but just watching on how they band my best friends made a plan and robbed the place in that time span the dream went from action to sexual to action.

And then the scene changed to a hospital and the girl that was part of kidnapping crew and me were standing around a bed looking at the guy I killed. And she was pissed at me apparently they were good friends and came from a bad background and were only trying to make make for food and stuff. And said she cant find a way to be mad at me because I lost my best friend to(which was off because it was two different dreams but she knew about the death)

Then out of the the guy’s spirit appeared and asked her if she’s bsure he’s dead and she was like yeah I’m sure, and then he said well I’m going home and she said I’ll come make a turn later on so cook something nice. And he walked out of the room but the guy was still dead on the bed.

Then I woke up.

But the weird thing is that the guy gave off the feeling that I knew him ,I felt like I knew him but never met him. So when I killed him it hurt more then the death of my best friend.. Its as if I got feelings for him after I killed him . And after I woke up I still felt sad and U still do now.

Could someone please tell me what this dream means
