In native american lore, a wood burned to ward off bad dreams.
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.
Traveling through a wood a dream of trouble and hindrances; uphill, advancement with difficulty (Raphael).
When the dreamer eats alone, loss of physical energy may cause inertia. This, in turn, signifies mental depression. A dream of endless eating indicates many worries and a restless, unsatisfactory way of living. If the food is removed before the dreamer has finished with it, domestic or occupational complications must be solved.
(Unfinished business) An incomplete job in a dream signifies joblessness, inactivity, indolence, or it could mean an unattainable desire for leadership. An incomplete job in a dream also means despair. (Also see Finished business)
Countless inventors, scientists, and artists (e.g. Alexander Graham Bell, Isaac Newton, and David Bowie) have finished equations, found inspiration that provided that one missing link, and unlocked material the conscious mind can’t readily access, all in dreams. It’s true that sometimes the best way to deal with a problem is to sleep on it.
A dream forecasting long life to the person represented, especially if the portrait be painted on wood. To receive or to give one away, treason (Gypsy).
Imam Jafar al-Sadiq: [wood] interpreted upon 6 sides: compliment & improvement, good, usefulness & high standing, sanctity. White sandalwood is better in interpretation than the red.
