Interpretation of dream: Knead

As bread is the ?staff of life?, to dream of kneading bread suggests working hard on our own lives on order that we ourselves can effect change. Kneading has the same symbolism as cooking: that is, combining ingredients to make something else. It also signifies working with tension to relieve pain as in massage. In waking life, the act of kneading can be therapeutic. In dreams, this significance can be highlighted, allowing us to work at a problem or resolve a difficulty.
