Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

A tree is associated with your life.

The roots are your foundations of life. The trunk and branches are elements of your existence. In summary, a dream of a tree is a symbolic meaning of life. The tree is a representation of how life grows and the connection to your family and relatives. In particular, this dream represents different elements of your self-development through your experiences in waking life. The message is that everyone grows into something and the dream should be interpreted as a positive omen. This dream also denotes that you have grown from the past into the current time by using positive energy, and by allowing new people to enter your life and help you. The branches of the tree represent close relationships and the different directions of your personality. The roots in the ground express your grasp on things that affect you in life, like your family or cultural ties.

Detailed dream interpretation

This dream should be viewed in a positive light, as it can also suggest a new life and new opportunities which are coming your way. The branches show your ability to develop new relationships with other people, and the fact that they move in different directions means that there will be an opportunity of many new friendships. The tree should also be seen as giving faith to a project or business venture. A tree that is seen from above indicates that you have many wishes and that you need to project what your dreams are before you can achieve more in your life. To see a dead tree in your dream means you may be feeling that things have entered a climax, and you need to take action.

The type of tree featured in your dream

The type of tree is important when interpreting your dream meaning. If you dream of eating a fruit from a fruit tree, then it is a good sign that you will reap the benefits of a task at work. These benefits do not necessarily mean that things will remain positive in the long-term. If you are dreaming of an herb tree such as a bay tree, this means that you are going to feel trapped at work because of a lost opportunity. To dream of a cherry tree indicates that someone is going to be sweet to you shortly. If the type of tree featured in the dream does not bear fruit, it this may be portrayed as a reflection of your associations, and would normally refer to having to discover more about yourself. A dream of a willow tree it represents that growth will be accomplished through other people.

Elements of a tree and your dream

A leaf featured in your dream is associated with your emotions. It may represent how you feel about other people. If in your dream the focus is more associated with the leaves, rather than the whole tree, then it is connected to the feminine part of you. To see oak leaves denotes future nurturing and growth, as well as a possible pregnancy. The color of the leaves in your dream represents the productive energy. The greener and more radiant the leaves are in a dream, the more likely that you will have a baby soon. To dream of dried leaves means that you have been suffering from low energy.

Falling leaves, such as in autumn are associated with negativity. If in your dream you see falling leaves, the meaning is that you need to try to pick yourself up after an adversity. To dream that you are walking through falling leaves means that things need to be left behind, and you need to move on with life. If you see the tree’s branches in your dream, this it is associated with masculine energies. If in your dream the focus is on its trunk, your attention is called for in connection of unlocking an important message from your spirits. If you see the roots, there are many things you need to discover in order to get a happy life. Dreaming of being under the shade of a tree gives you a feeling of security for taking refuge under the protection of a more focused and advanced entity than an individual.

Climbing the trunk or the tree/falling

If you dream of climbing a tree on its trunk it denotes that an aggressive or negative energy within yourself is pushing you into a decision. You might feel ambitious to move up the ladder at work or to be more productive in a project. If you are climbing the tree it signifies there are secrets that need to be shared. To fall from a tree means that you are going to attract unwanted of unexpected loss of honor.

Cutting a tree/falling tree/tree stump

To see a tree cut down, or to cut a tree yourself in your dream indicates that you are going to be confused by someone's actions. It is important that you uncover the truth behind closed doors. Ancient dream interpreters would associate a falling tree with falling kingdoms. These days the dream can also mean a compulsory sacrifice for the good of society or a close friend. If your attention is drawn to the fallen tree’s stump, it means that sometimes you do not get the message that you like.

To dream of woods, forest or more than one tree together indicates that you will discover your own spiritual growth and happiness within yourself. As a wooded area is generally natural, it is a direct reflection on how you feel about your inner self. The dream is encouraging you to relax and be natural. To dream of burning trees or a wood fire indicates that you are feeling pain, and that you need to hide away to get yourself better. To be in a wood at night indicates that you hold deep emotions about exploring new possibilities, and you need to let yourself be happy. A dream of a Christmas tree indicates that you need to make progress, and happy times are ahead.
