Since sleep is a way of leaving the busy world behind, a bed can represent a form of spiritual sanctuary and a sense of purity. To be going to bed with someone can variously represent either our sexual attraction to that person or indicate that we need have no fear of them - depending on other circumstances within the dream. Such an act may suggest our search for companionship and love. To be going to bed alone in a dream can indicate a desire for a return to the safety and security of the womb. To dream of a bed made up with fresh linen indicates the need for a fresh approach to those thoughts and ideas that really matter to us. For most people, the bed and bedroom signify a private place, though sometimes from different perspectives. For both men and women, dreams about beds can give an insight into our attitude to relationships, not necessarily with the opposite sex.
