Detailed dream meaning

To dream of an education institution; means you have a sound foundation of knowledge. This can indicate that you need to prepare to be tested, that you need more knowledge about something, or seek more information. The institution in a dream represents your peers and how they see you on a physical or material level. This is why people dream of being naked at school. They feel vulnerable in their lives and see themselves in a place that others will inherently be judged. To dream of a private school in grand property (such as a manor house or equivalent) means that you will embark on an important project that will make your fortune. You have got to the point in life where you are now ready to take on the world. To take a test or studied in your dream means that you need to try to learn to read people better.

It is also a reminder not to be holding onto people around you. To dream of taking a test at school means that you feel things in waking life are not going to plan. To learn something new means that you are helping someone who is not up to the same standard or setting standards too high for someone on in your waking life. Consider ways in which you can be more fair to those around you or ways in which you could see things from other’s points of views.

Education in a dream is a symbol of personal understanding but also education can be symbolical of spiritual development. When you see school or college in your dream know that this is also a clue on your spiritual development and apply other aspects of the dream interpretation accordingly.
