Detailed dream interpretation
Dwarves can be a symbol of your spiritual quest for inner knowledge. Happy, cute dwarves in your dream can predict a good spiritual or emotional path coming your way. Discover it and take this path. The spiritual meaning of dwarves is a common one in dreams. Dwarves are little spirits that come to you in order to guide you towards better attitudes or outcomes. They are capable to show you hidden aspects of yourself that even you were not aware of. When you discover these aspects, let them come forth.
Generally, a dream depicting a dwarf represents perfect health and success, but also a lack of trust in friends or strangers. A dream of a dwarf is usually favorable. A dwarf that is pleasing in appearance suggests that your mind is a giant, or that your personality is superior to most. However, a dwarf in your dream can refer to a hidden quality of yours that does not want to come forth. It could be a neglected area of your personality that needs some tender love and care to sprout. You should probably attend to it, as it will bring you benefits.
Deformed dwarves refer to littleness and ignorance in regard to a specific problem in your waking life. Laughing dwarves mean wickedness. You could have difficulties at home. The dream could foretell troubles with your family and conflicts inside your house.
A dwarf could also symbolize the imbalance and lack of harmony in your waking life. It is a type of guide for your soul. Alternatively, the dwarf suggests that you should be lighter, and at peace with yourself. If in your dream your friends are dwarfed, this is a reference to their health and also your enjoyable relationship with them. Ugly dwarves represent stressful situations in your family life.
Dreaming of a pygmy tells that you may be disappointed by a friend that you trust. This meaning is similar even if the pygmies are friendly. Pay attention if the dream is pointing out a precise direction. Short people are not always good omens in the dream world. They can suggest low qualities, such as mischievousness and wickedness that some people in your life could display in relationship to you.
