The wood is often a manifestation of the Spirit. If it is a wild wood, it suggests the untamed spirit as in nature and we perhaps need to exercise some self-control. When our behaviour becomes rigid or wooden, dreams will often attempt to make us aware of this and of the necessity to balance our feelings. We might then dream of willow, a tree that bends in the wind. Dreaming of wood, in the sense of prepared timber, suggests our ability to appreciate the past and to build on what has gone before. We are capable of building a structure, which may or may not be permanent. Dreaming of a wooden toy highlights our connection with the more natural side of ourselves.
