Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Nest dreams symbolize home, life, and destiny.

The nest can represent the home or one leaving the proverbial nest and going on a life adventure. Dreaming of a nest in a full or filled out tree, such as one during the spring or summer denotes feeling safe at home or that your house is well taken care of. If the nest or the tree is dilapidated then it tells you that your own home is in need of repair.

When you can see more of the nest, such as being able to see the inside of the nest, this is when you need to pay close attention. In the case that you see the inside of a nest and you notice eggs, then it is a good sign for fertility. If you see baby birds it indicates a blessing of a child and you or someone around you is likely to get pregnant. A nest that has a plethora or many eggs in it is an indicator of a long life and many children. Seeing eggs that are crushed or dead baby birds in a nest is a bad sign and can indicate sickness of a child or a miscarriage.

In this dream you may have...

  • Seen a birds nest in a tree.
  • Seen eggs or baby birds.
  • Seen a broken nest.
  • Watched a nest fall.
  • Looked into a nest and saw it empty.

Positive changes are afoot if…

  • See a nest with baby birds in it.
  • See a nest in a full tree (such as summer or spring).
  • See eggs in a nest (the more the better).

Detailed dream meaning...

Remember that dreams are only indicators and even the negative of a dream can also reflect a fear. If you are pregnant these types of dreams can also indicate that you think, want, or fear will happen. Understand that your brain is working out issues that could happen and take steps to prevent what you see where you can.

Seeing a tree with many nests in it indicates a person who has wanderlust or a desire to travel. Seeing this can also be a warning for you about impending relationship problems, cheating, or reflecting your own insecurity with a partner.

Seeing a broken nest, falling nest, or old and abandoned nest reflects your own fears of being alone, not being able to make a relationship work, or failing in love.

Specific birds also can indicate different things. For example, a robin nest (or another bird with blue or aqua eggs) will often indicate a boy child whereas a speckled egg will indicate a girl.

Dove’s nests have special meanings to dreams as well. Since the dove is a sign of peace and the nest is a sign of a new beginning or the home, the dove’s nest is often showing that there will be peace in the home. Usually these types of dreams come about when there are problems at home or in a marriage and it is a good sign that things will work out. If you see a dove sitting on a nest it means you need to be the person to bring the peace and solace to your home and perhaps your attitude has been the main problem at home. Consider ways in which you can make amends or bring peace to your home.

A raven’s nest says that you need to be less involved with others and focus on your own life.

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

  • Having problems at home.
  • Desiring a home.
  • Relationships and marriage.
  • Fertility.
  • Having children.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of a nest…
