I had a dream the night before last that really stuck with me. I was looking out my window and saw a large, red bird. The bird grabbed a big, yellow fruit by its beak and put the fruit into its nest which was full of other red birds. That was it… I just remember watching the scene and being almost enchanted or mesmerized by it, and then it was over. Upon waking, I kept thinking about the dream... as simple as it was, it really stayed with me. So, for kicks, I decided to check out online what the dream meant. (If you Google "dream interpretation", you'll find a bunch of sites). I looked up "bird", "red", "nest" and "fruit". Here's what my dream was about:
- Bird: 1) Birds are usually considered a very good omen for the dreamer to receive and this is doubly true if the birds are brightly colored, singing, and flying about (sleeps.com); 2) To dream of a chirping and/or flying bird, represents joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life. You will experience spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders (dreammoods.com).
- Red: 1) A deep, blood red is usually a portent of good news to come. It is also the color of passion and of anger and could be a warning to stay cool and keep your temper under control (sleeps.com) ; 2) Red is an indication of raw energy, force, vigor, intense passion, aggression, power, courage and passion. The color red has deep emotional and spiritual connotations (dreammoods.com).
- Nest: 1) To see a bird's nest in your dream, signifies comfort, safety, and protection. The dream may also symbolize new opportunities. Alternatively, it also means emotional dependency (dreammoods.com).
- Fruit: 1) Cultivated fruit, such as an orange, is a lucky omen and promises a period of growth followed by fruition (financial gain) if it is ripe (sleeps.com); 2) : To see fruit in your dream, signifies a period of growth, abundance and financial gain. Fruits generally represent lust and sexuality (dreammoods.com).
And, I thought all it meant was that I was hungry during the night and haven't been eating enough fruit....
