Interpretation of dream: Release

When we release a previously strongly held belief we are moving into a different stage of spiritual awareness. The release of birds, for instance at funerals, has the symbolism of letting the soul go free. Emotional release in dreams can give rise to a number of images, such as rushing water, a raging fire or a mighty wind. To be released in dreams from an institution such as school, prison or hospital is to gain a type of freedom. Whatever was bothering us is now behind us and we can move on.
