Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

From my viewpoint, this dream means your being "blocked." A wall may represent an obstacle that prevents you from attaining what you want.

This is a dream of something in your life that is holding you back or blocking you from something you want as well. When you dream of a wall it can be a famous wall like the Berlin Wall or the Great Wall of China. Or, more simply it can also be a simple blockade in front of you or a huge stone wall around your property. Walls can come in many different forms in a dream and the significance of them, their placement, and what they are made out of is what has the biggest influence on your dream.

Walls spell difficulty and obstacles in your life and indicate that there are things blocking your path. Sometimes the wall can represent a person but usually, it is indicative of certain circumstances. Normally these types of dreams show you issues that you have already contemplated but solidify the issue at hand. When you see a wall in your dream know that there is going to be obstacles blocking your way.

Detailed dream meaning

When you choose to mount or build a wall up, this can be a sign of pushing others away in your life. When you are the one that is blocking others from helping you or opening up to you, then you must consider that the people that are trying to help are not going to continue to do so. When you feel trapped behind walls of your own creation this is a sign of pushing others too far to the point of being a lack of help or a detriment to you. When a dreamer creates boundaries against obstacles – such as putting a wall up in opposition to some unknown danger this can be a warning that there is a need for protection and security in your waking world. Knocking down a wall is a good sign of being able to be open and trusting and making progress without turning away help that is likely needed.

Walls are commonly masculine items in dream interpretation. These dreams indicate that there is a masculine influence in your life or that of your past. Consider the relationship with an ex-partner (if you are female) or the relationship with your father. Also, keep in mind your own processing of emotions. Because the wall is often deemed a male quality when representing something in a dream it can also mirror male feelings of being inadequate emotionally or holding back your own feelings. When the wall is surrounding something you deem as special or treasured, consider your own feelings about this thing in your life. Especially in the case where the wall is blocking you from reaching a goal or a person, consider that your own feelings are blocked off, and this is not your intentional doing but rooted back to the relationship with your father in childhood.

Walls as dream images are generally considered obstacles and sources of isolation or confinement. Some people are emotionally guarded and feel unable to express themselves freely. If you are such a person, this dream symbol might be pointing to the walls that you have built around yourself. Additionally, if you are experiencing challenges and seemingly impenetrable difficulties in daily life, the wall in your dream may be a reflection of those factors. Consider your current situation and attempt to identify the source of the walls in your dream. Climbing the wall suggests that you are becoming prepared or are able to overcome difficulties and/or challenges.
