The bean can signify immortality and magical power, containing as it does the potential for life and manifestation. Psychologically the bean can represent stored potential. We have the ability to tap into it to achieve whatever we want. Traditionally the bean was supposed to be capable of feeding, clothing and providing an object of exchange for barter. To be storing beans in a dream may show a fear of failure or a lack of confidence in our ability to carry through an objective at this point. We may, however, need to create something in the future. To be planting beans would suggest faith in the future and a wish to create something useful. In a mans dream the bean suggests the life force, whereas in a womans dream it will signify her own fertility. Consult the entries on Garden, Gardener and Plants.
