Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreaming of files suggests that you should sort and organize things in your life. Maybe it is associated with being "clean" and groomed.

This is especially true if you have recently undergone a trauma or an agitated period in life. Consider the content of the files in your dream for clues. If you have a dream depicting files that you are trying to open then this can suggest there is a part of your life that needs order.

To see someone giving a manicure or pedicure symbolizes reviewing situations and finding the best in people. You will carefully examine different environments, especially in connection with improving your own living space. Perhaps you are looking to renovate the property? In addition it can also mean that you have encountered problems at work. You may review different issues and make a decision about what you wish to do going forward.

To see a broken file indicates that you are looking over things carefully and are considering a career change. This could simply be changing one's career. There will be "work" options being offered to you. Maybe even a contract or the temporary career move.

If there are paper files in your dream it means that you are trying to cover up areas of your life.

This dream may also represent your belief system, and what you feel inside will be challenged. If you read the file this will give you an insight into news that is likely to come into your life in the future. Files in connection with the Secret Service or any type of espionage featured in a dream is a direct indication that other people are going to hide what they know.

In your dream you may have

  • Seen a file or filing cabinet.
  • Seen an empty file or filing cabinet.
  • Encountered a file full of papers.
  • Seen a computer file.
  • Had a shelf with lots of files.
  • Opened a file.
  • Read someone’s file or your own.
  • Seen only a filling-cabinet.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • The files were organized and orderly.
  • The files contained more than mundane information.
  • The files helped you to understand something about yourself.
  • The files were entirely in order.

Detailed dream interpretation

A filling-cabinet in your dream represents luck. In general, dreaming that you are reading files while you are working equals good fortune. If you dream of a letter or a piece of paper lost inside a file means you should pay attention to others. The file in your dream could also foretell an unprofitable business deal in the near future.

If you dream of a file containing your personal information, you should be more careful with people that you meet on a regular basis. To have a dream of a nail file means that someone will want to borrow something from you. To dream of a file (tool) means that someone who is hostile will send apologies, especially if you were using this to work on something - to create an object using the file.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of files
