Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
There is no uniform way to interpret your dreams.
When our minds dream, they are sorting through thoughts and concerns of the mind that you didn't have the time to sort through during the day. For that reason, your dreams are personal to you. One man who dreams about a car could be dreaming about a desire to escape, while another man could be dreaming about the stress he feels when having to make payments on the car, while a third man could be dealing with letting go of his child and acknowledging that they are adult enough to drive and have adventures of their own away from the eyes of their parents. As you can see, interpreting what something might mean without any other context is like trying to give a blanket interpretation of a snippet of conversation. however we will give you some ideas as to what the dream might could be about.
The best guide to dream interpretation is your own life. You must look to your own concerns in order to discover what you are dreaming about and why. Since these are thoughts that you either haven't taken the time to consider, or are actively ignoring, then only you can know what they are. The only time a symbol can be given a blanket meaning is when it is a symbol. A symbol is an object or action that is assigned a specific meaning by most people in the society. For example, a flag is a symbol that stands for a country. If you are dreaming about the American flag you are probably dreaming about the country. Then, according to what happens in the dream, you can figure out how you feel about the country. But that only holds true if the symbol doesn't have a secondary, more intimate meaning to you. For instance, perhaps there was a flag outside your childhood home. In that case, you are not dreaming about a flag, you are dreaming about one, specific flag, and the dream is about your childhood home.
So, what could you be dreaming about if you dream about being thin? Or if you dream of other thin people in your life?
In your dream you may have seen
- Thin people all around you.
- Being thinner than you normally are.
- Wasting away - either yourself or other people.
- Worried about someone getting too thin.
- Sad that you are not thin.
- Jealous of other people who are thinner than you.
- Wished you were thinner.
- Compared yourself to other people.
If you are dreaming about being thin, you may feel weak in a certain setting. For example, if you are dreaming of being thinner than your co-workers, you may feel powerless at work. You may also feel you are shrinking away from some duty or challenge. You may worry about starving or going hungry. Perhaps physically, maybe metaphorically, such as going through a time of scarcity. Because of a recent unhealthy obsession with thinness as an indication of beauty, you may be an expressing a desire to be seen as more attractive, usually through sacrifice.
Dreaming of thin maybe because of a need, A need to be healthier, more active and able to keep up. You may be having these dreams not because you are overweight but because something is not the right size in your life. money, love, feelings, or even your job. You may feel as though you are too small to do things or too large to do things, Like ride a merry go round.

It could also mean you are worried about how many groceries are in the house and the cupboards are thin.
It may very well mean that your patients have worn thin. Perhaps you are in too many fights with friends family or co workers. Could also be that your work is mundane and you are needing to change what and how you do your job. Too much stress in your life can leave you on edge and that's what this dream of thin may mean.
Positive changes are a foot if

Again, there is no one way to interpret an element of a dream, let alone the entire dream, but this can help give you a place to start. Look to your most pressing concerns. The more pressing a problem, the more likely it is to show up in your dreams as your mind will feel a need to confront and deal with it as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
