|Gems In Dreams (1)
We may say we dream of one day owning a beautiful gem, but sometimes we literally have dreams involving gems and jewelry while we are asleep. Various meanings have been attributed to such nocturnal visions, and it is believed that understanding these interpretations can allow us to predict the future, understand our hopes and fears, or avoid a potentially unfortunate or dangerous situation.
Precious stones are thought to symbolize aspects of life. In general, a dream about gems is usually a good sign for personal affairs, love life and business dealings, since jewels are generally thought to signify pleasure and riches.
A dream about looking at a precious stone could mean that you are tempted by material possessions and a dream that you are considering purchasing gems should be interpreted as a warning that you may have to learn to live without some of the things that are taken for granted.
On the other hand, if you receive a gift of a gemstone in your dream, it is a sign that your wealth will increase. However, if you dream of wearing gemstones, according to some, your dream may be telling you that you are arrogant and self centered. According to others, wearing gems is a sign of rank or achievement. If you see other people in your dream wearing gems, it could mean that you or maybe a friend will rise to an esteemed position.
Dreams of finding precious stones are an indication that something of value is about to occur, but surprisingly, the converse is not true - dreaming of losing a gemstone is thought to predict unexpected good fortune. However, if you give away jewels in a dream, it may be a warning of some threat to your person or estate, or else it could mean that you are subconsciously acting to your own detriment. A dream of inheriting jewelry means that you will prosper but in some unusual way, which may not be quite what you expected or hoped for.
The colors of gems in dreams are also significant. Finding a blue gemstone symbolizes inspiration, new ideas or even a new body of learning, while a red stone may foretell a new romantic connection. If you find a yellow gem, you should be ready for a new opportunity through a distant connection, and a violet stone is a sign that you should pay more attention to the spiritual side of your life.
If you are a young woman some of these dreams may be interpreted in a different way; if you dream about receiving jewelry, it may mean a desirable marriage in the near future, whereas a dream of losing jewels is a warning against those who may give insincere compliments.
So dream on ... but take special note whenever your dreams involve gemstones, they may have meaning for your life.
