|Gems In Dreams (2)
Dreams about gems can have different meaning according to the situation, such as finding a gem, losing one or wearing it. However, specific types of gemstone also have their own particular meaning.
For example, some believe that diamonds in dreams represent love and money, since a diamond is a much desired object and thus represents those things that are most valuable to us. On some accounts, a diamond may symbolize universal truth and spiritual consciousness. In yet other cases, a diamond may foretell victory over enemies. But context is important. Depending on where the diamond appears in your dream it may be a clue as to where you can find that elusive thing that will bring happiness to your life.
A dream about rhinestones may mean you will encounter some short term pleasures or small favors. If a young woman dreams about a rhinestone which in fact turns out to be to be a diamond, she may find that some insignificant act on her part will bring a disproportionate amount of good fortune.
Emeralds are valued for their powers of increasing spiritual or intuitive growth. Some believe that a dream of emeralds is a sign that you have much to look forward to, while others say it means that you will inherit property in circumstances which may cause disputes with others. If in a dream a lover sees his fianceé wearing an emerald, it is a warning that he may be about to be thrown over for a wealthier or more desirable suitor. If you dream that you buy an emerald, it signifies that you will engage in dealings with an undesirable outcome.
Agate is another gemstone that is thought to be meaningful in dreams. To see an agate in a dream may mean an improvement in business affairs, or else a journey. Some people use agates as protection from bad dreams, and in ancient times, banded agates were placed at one's head while sleeping to induce rich and varied dreams.
Dreams about amethyst are generally believed to bring good luck, especially in the area of business dealings. An amethyst may be a sign that you will receive a small but satisfying income, or be content with the outcome of a business deal. However, a dream of losing an amethyst might signify a material loss or personal problems. If you are married or engaged, an amethyst is a symbol of a serene and happy marriage, but for a young woman to dream of the loss of an amethyst, may be a sign of broken engagements or being slighted by a lover. Amethyst can also be used to help insomnia, and placed under your pillow can bring about pleasant dreams.
