Certificate dream meanings

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

A certificate is usually given in praise of our achievements. Certificates show intelligence, skill, accomplishment, and success.

Because of that, a certificate in your dream can mean a variety of positive things, and is usually accompanied by positive feelings and pride in one’s self.

In your dream you may have

  • Received a certificate.
  • Given away a certificate.
  • Found a certificate.
  • Made a certificate.
  • Forged a certificate.
  • Saw someone else receive a certificate.
  • Given a certificate to yourself.
  • Received a certificate for something you did not do.
  • Taken a certificate away from someone else.
  • Felt pride toward your certificate.
  • Felt negatively about your certificate.
  • Felt as if your certificate did not accurately assess you.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You felt pride in your achievement.
  • Your certificate was given for something you did accomplish or complete (either in the dream or in real life).
  • Your certificate was given for a skill you actually possess in real life.
  • You gave away a certificate to someone who deserved it.

Detailed dream interpretation

If the certificate was given away for something you accomplished in real life, or for a skill you actually possess, then you are a talented person with a lot of self-confidence. People admire you because you are willing to work on things that need to be improved and because you do not complain in the process. You are going to have success in the near future, as long as you continue keeping a positive and professional attitude whenever it is possible and necessary.

If the certificate was given to you for something you accomplished in the dream only, then you are feeling very unsure of yourself. You are not sure whether you have anything useful to contribute to the world or to your family and friends. You are reflecting on some old choices and wondering whether you made the right decisions. If you are feeling uncertain, focus on the future, not the past.

If the certificate was given to you for something you did not do, or if the certificate was given to you in error, then there is something you are hiding from the people close to you. You feel as if you are living a lie, which explains why your subconscious is awarded for something false. There is something you have been wanting to tell people, but you are not quite sure how to do it.

If you gave a certificate away to somebody else who deserved it, it reflects positively on your ability to listen to others and give compliments. Your friends will always be there for you because you are supportive of them. If you gave a certificate away to someone who did not deserve it, you are envious of the people around you and their abilities.

If you had any negative feelings toward the certificate you received, then you do not have as much self-confidence as you should. Often, you receive compliments and shy away or negate them. If you accept your compliments, it reflects more positively on your persona, and you will begin to feel better about yourself.

If you simply saw the certificate, or if you awarded the certificate to yourself, you are feeling left out and unnoticed. You worry that you will never receive the attention you deserve for the things you’ve accomplished in your life. Be patient because there is always more to come, and there is more to look forward to and be recognized for in your life.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • The recognition of others.
  • Self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Highlighting your skills.
  • Being supportive of your loved ones.
