Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

In old dream lore, shoulders indicate you are feeling over-burdened.

A dream which features your own shoulders (or others) means that you are carrying some excess weight and that it is time that you managed this in your life. Have you been feeling that work is over burning you are the moment? If so, this dream is a clear indication that things are better addressed safely than closing the doors to possibilities. You may find that you can re-enter the dream in order to find out what it is that is important to you, and that you have been carrying on your shoulders for so long.

Detailed dream interpretation

A dream of shoulders means that you may doubt something important in your life. If the shoulders in your dream are big, this is the sign of good health and success. If the shoulders belong to a very thin person, this is the omen of an illness ahead.

If you dream that your shoulder's wriggle is a sign that eventually you will not put your trust into something that makes you sad at the moment. If in your dream you have tall and largely spread shoulders, this refers to your strength of character, and that you might take life too lightly. If the shoulders are narrow it means that someone expects a lot from you and this makes you reject that individual.

High and healthy shoulders in a dream mean you are a strong and firm person. If shoulders you see are naked, this foretells happiness ahead. Dreaming about your own shoulders refer to your independence in life. If your shoulders are broken, this omen predicts annoyances ahead. If in your dream you see shoulders that are swollen, this means frustration coming from your friends. Dreaming about a person putting his or her head on your shoulder means that someone will ask you for help. If however, you are the one that lays your head on someone’s shoulder, it means you are searching consolation from somebody. Weeping on somebody’s shoulder means you will receive help from a good friend.
