A proposal is a statement of intent and spiritually represents the sacred marriage, the union of spiritual and physical. To propose in the spiritual sense is to make an offer or offering of our abilities. To propose an action in a dream is to promote it as a good idea, as something that should be considered. In the sense of a marriage proposal we are marking the potential integration of two sides of our personality. A business proposal in dream parlance is a properly thought out course of action to bring about some kind of merger or autonomy. It is often the first step in a new understanding of the world we live in. Both men and women will dream of proposals with personal and business connotations. The type of proposal made or given will highlight the seriousness or emotional impact of the integration that is taking place. Contrary to popular belief, it does not necessarily mean that a proposal will take place in real life.
