Things you have developed in your life which are not contributing much, or might even be stopping more posi­tive personal growth, misplaced endeavour or energy. See plants.

A symbol of bad activities or bad people, Heb. 6:8

Weeds, by courtesy of their irritating qualities and refusal to be quickly eradicated, symbolize spiritual difficulties.

Psychological / emotional perspective: Mental attitudes and old patterns of behaviour that clog us up and do not allow us to move forward can very often be shown in dreams as weeds. We may need to decide which of these weeds are helpful to us – that is, which could be composted, transferred into something else and made use of to help positive growth – or which need to be thrown away. Often plants growing wild have healing properties and by using these properties we can enhance our lives. Such information can be given intuitively in dreams.

Material aspects: Weeds are generally plants that grow on waste ground and their symbolism in dreams reflects this. They may indicate misplaced trust, misplaced energy or even misplaced attempts at success. They do not contribute a tremendous amount to our lives and if allowed to run riot or to overgrow can stop our own positive growth.

To be digging up weeds would show that we are aware that by freeing our life of the non-essential, we are creating space for new growth and new abilities.

Vision: If you are pulling weeds: a messed-up situation can be resolved, but pay attention only to what is essential.

Depth Psychology: Cravings, wild urges, out-of-control emotions, and desires are “pushing up” and taking over “the garden of your life.” Remove these” wild plants” quickly and thoroughly— pull the weeds from your soul!

To see a garden filled with weeds means that you need to review your diet and health; for if you continue as you are, you will become extremely sick.

In a dream, weeds represent someone who is loved by his family, though they do not benefit from him. He differs with those close to him and draws himselfcloser to those who envy him. He lives distant from his true friends, but close to his enemies. (Also see Grass; Unwanted)

Unorganized and unknown instincts and impulses that may be destructive or helpful.

If you merely observed weeds in a garden, the dream is a warning against undesirable friends who could damage your reputation. But if you were pulling out the weeds or destroying them in any way, you can be sure that your future will be sunny and bright.

3- Weeds, by courtesy of their irritating qualities and refusal to be quickly eradicated, symbolise spiritual difficulties.

Weeds as dream symbols represent neglect. They suggest that the dreamer has not been regularly tending his physical or psychological environment. Weeds are indicative of negativity as well as growth of useless and harmful elements in the dreamer’s life. Just as we need to weed out the garden to have healthy plants, we need to weed out the negativity in our minds and lives to grow fully. Weeding in dreams suggests a releasing of stifling and useless thoughts and actions, which frees the mind and improves relationships.

A dream of much labor and small benefit (Gypsy).

(see Garden. Path)

Negative aspects of your own behavior, or unhealthy ideas, that need to be cleared away before real growth can occur.

Problems growing into a relationship or situation that must be rooted out for any type of positive results.

(hergrown: Something in your life that’s gotten out of control, and now obscures the natural beautv within.

Positive outcomes from annoying situations. Xot all weeds are useless. Dandelions, for example, may be made into coffee, salads, and wine.

The difference is in how they are viewed and applied. Try looking at your current circumstances differently for a moment, and see ifvou can’t make the most of them.

Weeds represent neglect.

To dream of weeding a garden or lawn may presage letting go of stifling and useless thoughts and actions.

• A field, particularly one that is fertile, speaks of possibilities and opportunities that await you. However it also indicates that some action is needed on your part.

• A field does not product fruit by itself. It requires someone to work it. Positive A Fertile Field • Seeing a vision of a fertile field speaks of a new opportunity the Lord is putting before you. It is for you then to work and to sow the seeds in this direction.

• This can relate to either business or ministry.

The Lord will bring the rain and cause the seeds to grow, but unless you plant, you will not see any fruit.

• Just because you see a field in the spirit, it does not mean that you will automatically walk in blessing. God is showing you, that He will give the opportunity, but now you must work and make the most of it.

• Psalms 107:37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.

• If you see a field that is full of wheat and ready to be harvested, the Lord is telling you that ministry opportunities are awaiting you.

Weeds • Often as I have been in intercession for the ministry, I have seen a field that is mixed with weeds and with good seeds as well.

• When I see this I know that the Lord is saying that there are some people in the ministry who have come to bring death and destruction.

• In a situation like this I pray that the Lord will separate the tares from the wheat. In every case, not long afterwards, the Lord exposes those who have come to bring division.

• If you cover a minister in intercession this is something you might see often.

• Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; • Dry Ground • To see a field with dry ground speaks of the lack of anointing in your life.

• Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon your seed, and my blessing upon your offspring:

Example: ‘I was working in quite a large garden by my house.

A pan of the garden was like a little alcove by other buildings.

The garden was kidney shaped. I had dug this small plot and was considering how I might relax and sun­bathe there. My daughter said I should have worked harder on it—dug it better. I felt intense emotions of resentment and anger at her criticism. I staned telling her what a bad time I had in the past. How difficult it was even to work, let alone work hard’ (Beatrice G). This shows the garden as depicting what one has ‘worked on’ or produced in life. This could mean externally, or one’s own nature.

The daughter is Bea­trice’s own self criticism, which pushes her on, though she has a tendency to want to relax ‘in the sun*. This aspect of garden suggests how ‘fruitful’ one’s life has been socially and spiritually.

Beautiful garden: suggests satisfaction at time of dream. Overgrown, weeds in garden: awareness of particular parts of your personality which need working on. Perhaps negative habits need weeding out’. Square, circular garden: holds a lot of your gathered wisdom and insights which would be useful if made conscious.

Islamic Dream Interpretation

(Lawn) In a dream, grass represents religious awareness and blessings.

If one sees grass growing in the palm of his hand in a dream, it means that he will discover his wife having a secret affair, and he will find her in the company of someone else.

If one sees grass growing over his hand in a dream, it means that he will die shortly and grass will grow over his grave. Ifhe sees grass growing in a place where it is not supposed to grow, such as inside one’s house or inside a mosque in a dream, it means a wedding. Ifone sees grass growing all over him but does not cover his ears or eyes in a dream, it means prosperity.

If he sees grass growing on people’s hands or floating on water in a dream, it means a good harvest and prosperity for everyone.

If weeds grow at the same time in the dream, they connote negative effects.

If a sick person sees such a dream, it means that he is nearinghis death. Grass growingover one’s stomach in a dream means his death or his burial after death. Ifgrass grows all over one’s body but does not cover his head in the dream, itmeans prosperity and wealth. Ifthe grass covers one’s eyes and ears in the dream, it means that he will become heedless and loses the advantages of his religious life.

The same interpretation is given if one sees feathers growing over his body.

If poisonous weeds grow over one’s body in a dream, they represent an illness or death. As grass is cattle’s food and cattle represents people’s wealth, then gathering and eating grass in a dream means prosperity.

If an ascetic sees himself eating grass in a dream, it means that he will revert to desiring the world and its pleasures, and consequently, he will be deceived by it. Wild grass in a dream represent bad earnings and a miserable life. Cutting and selling grass in a dream means dispelling stress and difficulties, or it could represent a police officer or a tithe collector. (Also see Meadows; Weeds)... Islamic Dream Interpretation

General Meaning: Reaping the financial and spiritual fruits of your hard labor. Positive: A harvest does not appear overnight. It is something that only comes to pass after you have worked hard and then allowed the Lord to do His part as well.

• You sow the seeds and fertilizer and it is the Lord that brings the rain.

If you work God’s way, then you can expect a great harvest.

• Although the sign of a harvest is positive proof of a great reward, it speaks again of hard work.

To reap the harvest is heavy labor, but it is enjoyable labor.

• In most cultures this is a time of celebration and joy. So a harvest represents working hard but enjoying that work that will complete the reward that the Lord has given to you! • Mark 4:29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has arrived.

• If you seek the Lord putting a sickle in your hand, then He is saying that the harvest is ready! • In ministry, a harvest is also a picture of reaching the lost for the Lord and bringing them into the Kingdom.

• John 4:35 Do you not say, There are still four months, and [then] comes harvest? behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already for harvest.

Negative:

When weeds are in your harvest, it means that you did not work according to God’s plan or that the enemy got in somewhere to bring division. (Matt 13:30) • If the harvest is poor or weak, this is also an indication of the attack of the enemy and a spirit of destruction.
