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. But here is a way to work out your own dream – Dreams Meaning. Also it is important to give a full account of your dream - see Give Us Enough Information.

Also the site has enormous resources – so you can search for so many things – everything from abortion, the house in your dream to sex and death – simply by putting the search words in the search box.

There is also the full list of encyclopedia features on this site, this is not a list of dream dictionary words - Features Found on Site


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.

Looking out my window, I noticed the clouds. As I watched them they seemed to compress onto themselves. A huge bank of them suddenly fell from the sky slamming onto the area where I live. It didn’t damage my home but the whole area was effected by many feet of compressed snow. I had been in a car with friends and when the sky glacier fell , the concussion threw the car in the air and we were all thrown about inside. I lost sight of my gun and searched for it in earnest. Emergency crews started showing up. But, because I knew that this event was a game changer, I knew I had to find that gun. Once I did, I could then start helping the people around me. A neighbors horse was injured and struggling. I my pets appeared injured, but o.k..

I have always been a very intuitive person and have had some of the most remarkable dreams that have had very strong meaning, though this latest one I need help interpreting if you would please help me. It starts with an old Indian man sitting on a mountain with looks like owl feathers in his hair, as the wind blows his hair turns into the mane of a lion sitting behind him, both just watching the horizon as an eagle flys past and his feathers turn the day into night, I then see a wolf face and a bear face in the purple horizon then black birds fly above. Then white smoke covers the mountains and a white owl looks at me then fades away, , the day comes quickly and everything is brown like desert mountains and a brown owl walks towards me with a string around his neck and a small silver coin tied to the string. I couldn’t make out the coin, but it looked very old and tarnished. I feel as though everything means something, but the owl and coin seems very important. Will you please help me find something that this may relate to?
