Often village life was centred around the church and the pub, providing many contrasts. Spiritually, we often have to look at balancing two parts of our lives. A village appearing in a dream suggests a fairly tightly knit community. It may illustrate our ability to form supportive relationships and a community spirit. A village can present certain problems. For instance, everybody knows everybody else's business which can become trying. In this case we may be highlighting the oppression felt in close relationships. A village can symbolize restriction and an unsophisticated attitude. Because the pace of life is slower, we may find that the village in a dream in today's busy world is a symbol of relaxation.
