Dream Meaning And Interpretation Of Broken Glass

Broken glass can appear in many ways in a dream and many of you have contacted me about seeing glass, ranging from a simple glass bottle, eating broken glass to walking on broken glass. Dreaming about broken glass could be an indicator of some broken promises, negativity in your waking life, disappointments, shattered dreams, and many other unfulfilled elements.

Dreams of broken glass can be a common theme. Many dream experts such as Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud believe that dreams are a reflection of our daily lives. Thus, if you break glass in real life then this dream is a reflection of what has happened. Some ancient dream books, centered around the occult believe that dreams are precognitive, in that broken glass can mean you feel like something is broken in your life, and that you are trying to fix things. Skeptics write this off and believe dreams are connected to our inner mind. Finding the perfect interpretation of broken glass in dreams can be hazy, as it depends on what happened in the dream. I will detail some key elements of the dream and to make this easy I have segmented this down into questions and answers below:

It is used to denote that a romantic relationship has failed. On a positive note, broken glass could be a sign that, at long last, you are able to get over obstacles in your life in a painful, radical way. If you have been hurt “love wise” in the past then seeing broken glass indicates that it is time to move on and change.

The most common dream of broken glass is when it is seen in the skin. Breaking glass is often connected to diverting away evil spirits, this is why people “break glass” at weddings. Glass in dreams can signify love and joy and the fact that our lives cannot be broken. Glass can indicate that you will encounter a big focus on your life in the future. A dream of seeing glass “cutting” your skin indicates that you feel you need protection in life. The glass can also represent that you need to lower your expectations on what you put on yourself - daily.

In most cases, broken glasses are a representation of negative things in life. It could be that your relationship is about to break or you are having friendships or relationships which are not stable. Just like in life, when you break things, it is not on purpose and there is nothing profitable, which comes out of that particular action and thus, the same applies to broken glasses in dreams.

Broken glasses in ancient dream books brings with it insight into your inner self.

Just like the glass is transparent, the forces are also transparent, invisible to your naked eyes. When you have a dream where you are looking through a glass, it is an indicator of your capability to be able to see through the masks that other people wear and be able to tell their lies. It is very hard for you to be manipulated in your real life or to be misled.

What are you doing with the glass in the dream?

A glass is known to be used as protection and can also represent the passive part of your life. You will find glass in real life being used as a sort of boundary and thus, if you dream about a dirty glass, then it is indicative of seeing things the wrong way. If you drink from a glass, then it is a positive sign.

What does broken glass in your hand mean in a dream?

Seeing broken glass can indicate future problems or pains but above all can indicate that you are struggling with putting things into context. Our hands in dreams can denote the focus of a goal. It is also important to note that, as much as the glass is able to be reincarnated, it can also be destroyed and broken at the same time and thus, associated with brittleness and fragility. It is an associated with:

  • Clairvoyance – broken glass indicates seeing the future in a different light.
  • Change and transformation – things are going to move forward for the better.

When it comes to recycling, glass is one of the materials which is used in the modern world. Thus, from this perspective think of something that is going to happen again. When you have a dream where you see broken glass, it is a failure, broken relationships, missed opportunities and failed expectations just to mention but a few. On the other hand, it could be that you are unable to control your emotions and everything about your life and you have left others to control and manipulate you at will.

What does it mean to dream about eating broken glass?

A dream of eating broken glass could be symbolic in that there is something that you wish to say but don’t know how. I know that we all have these moments in life. In my view, spitting out glass indicates that you are finding it hard to say what you really mean to those around you. Seeing another person “eat” glass can indicate that they are finding it impossible to express themselves. If are afraid that you could say something which could be offensive to those around you then this dream may crop up.

It could also be a reflection of repentance after you said something hurtful to someone and thus, you are ready to apologize and eating broken glass in your dream is a way of saying you are sorry. It is advisable that, after you wake up, to think about how the glass can imply where you need to improve your communication skills.

What does it imply to dream about a broken mirror?

Dreaming about a broken mirror is a bad luck sign in superstitions – we all know the saying – 7 years of bad luck. After the dream, you will need to rethink your behaviors and acts. The broken mirror could be symbolic of a wrong impression which you have created for yourself. It could be time to start listening to those around you. Take in other people’s opinions and also their advice. This dream can also mean that you need to change some of your old routines as they are no longer beneficial to you.

If the mirror in your dream broke unintentionally, it is a sign that you are not satisfied with yourself. If it broke accidentally, then it is time for you to change, but it is like you are unwilling or ready to change. To see broken mirrors all around your dream, for example walking into a room full of broken mirrors indicates that you will tackle something difficult going forward.

What does it imply to dream about breaking a glass object?

To dream of breaking a glass object, it could be a reflection of the need in your waking life to release some desires and suppressed emotions. This could be because you are not in a position to do the correct thing in your life, so spiritually this is about venting your anger by breaking a glass.

What does it mean to dream about walking on broken glass?

Dreaming of walking on broken glass is an indicator that, you are going through some hardships in your waking life. The song “walking on broken glass” comes to mind. In my view, you could be going through a situation which is not pleasant at all and which is unavoidable. Alternatively, it could denote that you are ready to step up and define your goal to advance or make your life better.

What does it mean to dream about broken drinking glass?

When you have a dream of seeing a broken drinking glass that is full is a sign that you are going to need to watch your financial position in the coming days. Seeing others smash drinking glasses in a dream can mean wealth, money or even a heightened social status in the near future. If the glass breaking is empty, it is a sign that, you are currently struggling in regards to finances.

In summary glass in dreams can relate to how you are feeling at the moment. Some dreams of broken glass are trivial and indicate processing daily events, but in some cases, you need to pay attention to dreams of broken glass when it is connected to how you feel inside; however, I believe that most “broken glass” can represent our own emotions and how we are feeling.
