The Red Bird Dream

In general, I tend to have vivid dreams. Even so, I’ve noticed that I’ve had even more elaborate, vivid dreams since becoming pregnant. Most are not noteworthy and don’t stand out to me upon waking, but occasionally they do.

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 (; 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 (

  • 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 ( ; 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 (

  • 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 (

  • 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 (; 2) : To see fruit in your dream, signifies a period of growth, abundance and financial gain. Fruits generally represent lust and sexuality (

And, I thought all it meant was that I was hungry during the night and haven't been eating enough fruit....
