Flower Flowers

Growing or growth, the opening out of abilities or feelings, as in flowering. Flowers can stand for a type of awareness, or faculty of the mind, like the Chakras of Indian philosophy. Also a sense of beauty, love, emotions. Flowers are used to express your feelings, as in giving red roses. And to lose virginity is called defloration. So the context of the dream is important.

Sense of beauty; flowering of a feeling quality or ability. Flowers are the sexual organs of plants and can indicate your own sexual feelings or organs, depending on shape. Flowers can also mean transitory beauty of life – or your youth, or the flowering of our ripeness to live, love and reproduce, and its passing.

So they can indicate a young woman’s sexual flowering – not just her sexual prowess, but her wonderful flowering to womanhood. Woman hood is to be a balancing and caring opposite to maleness. Being a woman means that she is more in touch with her emotions than many men because of her hormonal activity; she is more at home with caring professions such as nursing and social intervention, with children. She is the Great Mother whether she has born children or not, because she is the creator, who even if she does not bear her own children has the power to create. It is her innermost secret.

Flowers have qualities too. Some are gaudy and showy, others shy and tiny. Some flowers call to you from a distance with their perfume, others repel in the same way. So your dream flower may be expressing subtle qualities.

Example: ‘So for the third time I held the woman and made love. The woman’s vagina was like a flower. I don’t mean to look at, but in physical sensation. My penis felt like it was penetrating petals of flesh and touching with great pleasure a central receptive area. I was left with the feeling of being able to make love again and again without any negative effects. It was a very positive and healthy feeling.’ John T.

John is feeling confident about his sexual drive. Although a powerful drive, subtle feelings and fears have an intense influence not only on the pleasure of sex, but also the response of the physical organs. The relationship with the penis and sex act in one’s dream shows what fears, hurts or attitudes are influencing the sexual flow.

Also: Feelings of pleasure; youthfulness; time of flowering.

Bud: Penis or vagina in the sense of growing male or female qualities.

Bloom: The bloom of a flower is usually either about the beauty of an opening heart, of feelings, of female sexuality and love, or about something coming into fullness, such as a creative idea, a creative work etc.

Flowering bulbs: Like a seed a bulb can point to a potential that can grow and flower in the right environment. But unlike seeds, a bulb carries a rich store of experience from the past. So it can depict things you have done in the past that still have potential for growth or fruition at the time of the dream. This suggests you have an enormous amount within you that has never been known before, just like a seed which has never produced all the potential of its growth, so appears to be a small dried up insignificant piece of matter. This potential needs the right environment and conditions to express. The conditions are now right for it, and it is emerging.

Giving flowers: Giving love and tenderness.

Many flowers growing: Feelings of well being and relaxation.

Dead flowers: Death or old age; dying love or abilities.

Giving dead flowers: Wishing someone dead or out of one’s life; dead feelings.

Lotus and Lily: As these grow from mud, through water to the air and light, they sometimes represent our wholeness and growth, showing our connection with the universal as we develop individually.

Rose: Love; the flowering of personal qualities, your soul or self. Sometimes the vagina. colours of roses

When the shape or number of petals is featured: A flowering of a new aspect of the Self. See: castrate; growth; plants; shapes.


Useful questions and hints:

Is it a particular flower – if so what do I associate with that flower?

What type of flower is this and what does it express?

What feelings do I experience in the dream and what does the context of the dream suggest about them?

Is this about sexual love or about the transitory nature of physical beauty?

Hi, I was in a flower shop in my dream and I needed to buy a bunch of flowes. However, the flowers in the shop were not so good. There werent many flowers, they were all faded and all of them were in off-white color. I recognized some of them were lilles but I didnt recognize the other flowers. I needed to buy the flowers for a friend and I thought it wouldnt be nice to give these faded flowers. But also I panicked thinking this maybe the only flower shop around. There I saw my sister in law. She was buying some flowers with her daughter and they were quite happy about the flowers, which I found kind of odd because the flowers were not that lovely. I wondered why she is happy about these flowers. Maybe she was thankful for what she got… I thought I cannot buy these flowers, no this was not what I wanted to do but leaving the shop for finding better, more colorful and more vivid flowers is risky. But in the end, I left the shop…

I dreamed that I was walking through a garden made of boulders and the flowers were growing out of the boulders all different types of flowers

    Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Summing 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/


    Brian – The boulders are flowering. The ageless and forever boulders, even though they seem hard and unchanging can yet yield sustenance for new life.

    The image of the rock may therefore link our conscious personality with innate unconscious archetypal forces or strength.

    And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. And Jacob rose up early in the morning and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Beth-el.

    For Jacob, the stone was an integral part of the revelation. It was the mediator between himself and God. In many primitive stone-sanctuaries, the deity is represented not by a single stone but by a great many unhewn stone’s, arranged in distinct patterns.

Water turning into flowers

First I dreamt of two turtles trying to warm themselves in the son as it was rising. I put my hand down to help the turtle get to the sun faster. The turtle walked into my hands to my amazement and I put it in the sun.

Then I dreamt I was in the middle of a large body of calm water. I was eating the flower and letting the seed fly from my hands. The seeds blew in the wind and created a beautiful trail in the sky above the water.

A few nights back, I dreamt of a field of beautiful sky blue roses.

In my dream I am smiling at the field of roses with the bright orange Sun setting at the back.
And on my hand was one of the flowers.
It is my own sky blue rose.

In my dream, everyone plants their own Sky blue roses.

Then one of my celebrity idol held a rose and smiled while inhaling the sweet sent of the flower.

The mood of my dream is really happy as though everyone had accomplished something great.

    -Tony Crisp 2014-08-12 8:04:21

    Christal – Yes, you did accomplish something great. It was that for a while you created a mood or attitude of peace, flowering and accomplishment.

    The roses were a sense of a wider life, and dreams take place in our inner world. But our outer world life is so changeable that you need to build into your outer world the feeling, hopefulness, flowering and the best in you. See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/questions-2/#Summing
