what does your dreams means
Interpretation of dream: Jewels

From a spiritual point of view, gems and jewels have always had esoteric significance. The understanding and use of gems and jewels can greatly enhance personal development. In most dreams it is the better-known stones which appear, but when the lesser-known ones are seen, there is much benefit to be gained by learning more on a conscious level. Many stones have healing properties. If, in dreams, the jewels are set - made up into wearable articles - we are aware of some of the uses of whatever the jewel signifies. For instance, to find an emerald ring might suggest that we have completed one of the stages of growth towards immortality. There are different interpretations for each gemstone, and opinions do vary. The significances of some well-known jewels and gems that have particular relevance in dreams are: Agate (black) - symbolizes wealth, courage, assurance and vigour; (red) peace, spiritual love of good, health, prosperity and longevity.

Jewels appearing in dreams almost invariably symbolize those things that we value. These may be personal qualities, our sense of integrity, our ability to be ourselves, or even our very essential being. When we feel we know what we are looking for, we are aware on some level of its value to us or others. When we simply register that we are looking for jewels, sometimes up a mountain, otherwise in a cave, we are attempting to find those parts of ourselves that we know will be of value in the future. Counting or in some way assessing them would suggest a time of reflection is needed. One system of belief suggests the following practical meanings: Amethyst - promotes healing and influences dreams. Diamond - signifies human greed, hardness of nature and what we value from a cosmic perspective. Emerald - highlights personal growth. Opal - suggests the inner world of fantasies, dreams and psychic awareness. Pearl - signifies inner beauty and value. Ruby - informs on emotions, passion and sympathies. Sapphire - highlights religious feelings. You might also like to consult the entry for Jewellery.
