Interpretation of dream: Weight

Weight in a dream indicates gravitas and seriousness. We may wish to make clear in our conscious minds our own spiritual worth. Anubis, the Egyptian god, assumed the role of the guidewho holds steady the scales on which the hearts of the dead are weighed against the feather of Ma'at, goddess of Truth. Weighing something up is to be trying to make an accurate decision to assess what the risks are. If we are trying to balance the scales we are looking for justice and natural balance within our knowledge. Weight in a dream may well indicate the need to be practical and down-to-earth in waking life. We need to keep our feet on the ground. To be weighing something in dreams is to be assessing its worth. This image connects with the calculation of our needs and what is of value to us, whether materially or spiritually. Experiencing a weight or heaviness in a dream is to be conscious of our responsibilities. It may also suggest that we should assess the importance and seriousness of what we are doing.
