Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Ball

Ball.

Bouncy, bouncy! Before embarking on a detailed meaning of this dream we need to understand what a ball means in your dream. There is a saying that is quite important “ keep your eye on the ball”  this comes to mind when we are defining this dream interpretation. 

The first thing that comes to mind is a round ball, but does a ball need to be round? No, if we look at the rugby ball it is shaped like a prolate spheroid.  I’m sorry to say that in older dream books a ball is seen in a dream generally has a negative meaning. If the ball was round in the dream this is connected to completing something important in life. Spiritually a circle seen in a dream can indicate that you have been feeling that you are going round and round and not finding the correct path or right way in life. Scroll down to find your dream meaning.

What is the meaning of a ball in dream psychology? In order to answer this question, we need to turn to Carl Jung, the famous dream psychologist from the 1930s. He believed that every dream is connected to archetypes. The ball is essentially an archetype. How the ball appeared in the dream is important and also how you actually felt in the dream. From dream psychology, the ball is part of a game of life. It normally occurs when one is in the process of completing something important in life. Sigmund Freud believed that balls are connected to a woman's ovaries. Most of his dream interpretations were sex-related. It makes you wonder if this is indeed true or that he just dissected symbols to build a ladder of our sexual mind. Freud thought that the ball was associated to our psyche and the ball was feminine in nature. In my view, it is important to try to relate this dream to our “feminine side of life.” What feminine traits are you showing right now? Has this given a reason for the dream?

What is the general meaning of dreaming of a sports ball? I need to explain what I want to do on this dream topic. The dream in my view is connected to the “actions” and type of ball that you see in the dream. You could have seen the ball used in many different ways. A ball can be flicked, swung, kicked, dribbled, crushed, thrown, tossed and even whacked. The action in the dream is important which I will define a little later on. The ball normally sits center stage in sports events and is connected to how we compete in life. In the dream state, the ball is an omen of how we express our competitive nature. The ball can signify the aspect of your character depending on the action that you see in your dream. You on the other hand, if you have you see yourself playing for then the chances are that this is a rather successful dream.

To dream of a deflated ball means you’re going to experience some hardships or easy victories – depending on how you dreamed of the ball. If you were playing with the ball this dream denotes you’re going to achieve an easy, long wanted success, however, if you were kicked in the face with a ball in your dream, you’re going to encounter some difficulties. These difficulties could be related to your career or personal life. Either way, you will feel hurt and disappointed. 

What does it mean if you could see a ball in the dream? If you could see a ball in your dream, it denotes you’re in a complicated situation. You’re the one that’s making it complicated by being doubtful. It is common to have this dream when you don’t know which solution to take - and which path to choose. It’s simple. Choose the path you want in order to gain your goals. Don’t care about what people will say about your choices - only you know best. I can turn this dream on its head and say just take a shot and hit the ball if you want to achieve a point. Overcome you will overcome your fear of failure and just go with the flow. So, the ball in my view is associated with opportunity, and don’t be surprised by how your instinct can guide you if you let it.

What does a red ball mean in a dream? A red ball often appears in a dream when we need to understand an aspect of our character. In my opinion, this dream indicates that you need to be more sharing and open with others. From a spiritual context, red symbolizes passion and also hidden opportunities. Perhaps you want to try to freshen up your own image. If you are playing with a red ball during the dream it could indicate that you are going to face some minor conflict in the future.

What does it mean to dream of throwing a ball? Throwing a ball has many different spiritual meanings. As I  have already concluded in the opening statement the ball itself is significant,  and if you attempt to throw the ball during a dream it can suggest that you are worried about the conclusion of an event. It can often be connected to our psychological mind in that you are worried about trying to remain in control. If you are the ball thrower in a sport during the dream, such as baseball or cricket this can suggest that you are feeling some insecurities in life. Perhaps you are worried about how you are going to achieve your goals moving forward. As a thrower of balls often makes decisions we can reflect this in your dream.  throwing a ball in a dream can also be associated with taking your time in matters in waking life. If you are holding the ball but you do not wish to throw it in a dream this can symbolize that you some insecurity in life. If you are throwing the ball in the air it can signify an aspect of your character and you need to look beyond surface appearances and try to understand yourself deeper. If you see yourself on the sports pitch then in many ancient dream dictionaries this suggests that you’re going to pitch an idea work, alternatively, you have a new idea of how to approach things in waking life. If you throw a ball in your dream and you miss a target then this indicates that the only way you are going to achieve is to understand other people by opening yourself up to the strengths and powers that you have from within.

What does it mean to dream of a white ball? A white ball in the dream symbolizes comfort, innocence and also connection with others. In all my readings I believe that seeing a whiteboard indicate your ability to use your imagination so you can see the clearer picture of life. If you are playing with a whiteboard in your dream it indicates you don’t have an opportunity to take action. If you see other people play with a white ball it can often represent that you’re leaving yourself open to criticism. The white ball is very spiritual and it often is a symbolism of our own identity in life. It is interesting that you dreamt of a white ball as it can mean completion but also the only way that you can achieve is to reflect on your own abilities in life.

What does it mean to dream of catching a ball?  Catching a ball in a dream indicates that emotions are taking place. Many dream dictionaries catching a ball has been connected to the missing about our past achievements.

This will ultimately lead to a healthier result. If you are trying to catch the ball but Miss then this can signify that there will be a delay in completing an important project in life. The ball itself is in the completion so catching this ball is a positive omen.

What does it mean to dream of a baseball? To dream of a baseball indicates that you are going to be hard-nosed. As the baseball is rather hard and we often use a bat when playing baseball it can signify the flipside of your character. You may find that there will be a situation where you can immerse yourself in your own emotions. If you are playing baseball in a dream it can often indicate that there is an idea that is not being pitched correctly - especially at work. Baseball has its roots in the British sport of rounders, however, rounders uses a softball. If you saw a ball which has a figure-of-eight red and white design and also stitching then this can indicate that you are valuing your own talents. The stitch is a symbol of your achievements in life. Additionally, the stitches that he used on a baseball, for example, the X shape indicates there is a target that you need to reach in waking life.

Seeing rubber balls in a dream can suggest that despite anything you’re going to succeed. If you throw the bowling ball and hit pins in your dream then no matter what happens you are going to remove any problems that will come your way.  If you dream of seeing yourself in a bowling alley then this indicates that you will have fulfilment it will take a while for you to understand how to move forward in life.
