An engagement can either be an agreement to get married; a commitment to attend an event; a job that only last for a short time; or anencounter between hostile forces.

Menstruation is the assurance of true femininity and the sign of womanhood. At such a time women often dream of receiving an engagement ring or married to strangers.

Example: A young woman, engaged to be married, dreamed that her fiance came to her and told her to break off the engagement. He said he would make her life miserable because he was presently untrue to her, and would continue to be unfaithful even after marriage. His answers to her subsequent interrogation proved the dream accurate, and the engagement was duly broken. Quoted from Dreams Your Magic Mirror by Elsie Sechrist.

Engagement ring: The state of the relationship, as in example below, where Mary is ‘choking’ on or ‘can’t swallow’ her relationship.

Example: ‘If I swallow I am going to swallow and choke on my engagement ring. I seem to be trying to stop a ring going down my throat.’ Mary S.

The dreams show the state of feelings about getting married. In promising ourselves to another it may be a time of great joy, but it can also face you with problems you haven’t realised you had before. One of those is dependence on mother or father – for all manner of things such as support. It might be that you have a difficult time actually giving yourself to another person fully. Most such problems arise from difficult trauma from early life. There is an attempt on the part of our dream process to release and deal with early traumas or situations that occurred and led to blocking or trapping our potential energy and creativity. Without this clearance much of our energy to express and achieve is tied up in the past, or in non productive habits. At this time too our dreams explore the challenges and difficulties we face in outer life.   See Ages of LoveAvoid Being Victims

I helped him write a love letter to her because I knew she wasn’t real but then he gave it to her and proposed with MY ring . I kept telling him but she isn’t real how can u love her and he wouldn’t not respond to me but just insisted that he did love her too .

    Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/news/summing-up/ and also http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/ which has so much information in.

    Nothing can replace your own ability to understand your dream. With a little effort you can do this by practising what is described in – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson or http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/getting-at-your-dreams-meaning/


    Klea – A difficult one, but I am guessing it is about you. I say this because when you think about a friend or a person you know, you are only taking in your thoughts, impressions and feelings about them. So many people do not realise that they have an inner person equally as powerful as the external person you know. You have taken in millions of bits of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences along with all the feelings or problems met by meeting or living with them, and they change you and make you the person you are. The memories and experience we gather unconsciously change us and are not lost. It is part of you and is symbolised in dreams as a person or event. Such an inner person can appear in dreams because you still carry the memories or impressions of them, and so they influenced what you hold within you.

    So turnining arodn to be abot you, are you often thinking or feeling that maybe your fiance might be thinking his interests are elsewhere?

    Just a thought, because it is spelt out in many women’s dreams. If I am right, your dream is showing natural fears you have while you are still engaged – it is all anxious worrying.
