Dream symbol Windmill


power, energy, profit, effort, potential

A classical windmill with many blades is driven by the force of the wind. Nowadays windmills are used to generate energy, which was different in the past. At that time windmills were used for grinding different grains.

Windmills have their own meaning in real life as well as at the dream level. The overall condition of the dream windmill is important for a detailed dream interpretation. It can be helpful to review whether the blades were turning or standing still. Maybe they were broken or the whole structure was already decayed?

General dream interpretation

If a windmill appears to the dreamer in his sleep, this signals, according to general dream interpretation, instability . The upcoming times could be somewhat fickle nature, for which the dreamer could already prepare inwardly. Through effort and diligence, he may get small gains and growth, but in the longer term, he must exercise patience. Despite an inner imbalance and one's own problems, it is important not to be completely absorbed by oneself, so that one overlooks the people around with their feelings and needs. Completely swallowed up by one's own issues, there is a danger that the dreamer will act inconsiderately towards family or friends and subsequently hurt them. The windmill reinforces the advice that the dreamer should strive for inner harmony.

A good omen in the dream is the image of the wings of the mill, which are caught by the wind and turn vigorously and quickly. This heralds great success for the person concerned. Future events will be very satisfactory for the dreamer, whether on a business or personal level.

If there is no breeze in the dream and the windmill is therefore at a standstill or destroyed, this generally indicates imminent danger or distress.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to the psychoanalytical interpretation, a dream about a windmill represents one's own resources and potential. This primarily means the intellectual-spiritual abilities of the person concerned. In connection with the condition of the building in the dream scene, one can get information about how the dreamer uses his potential. If it is a weathered building, he seems to let his abilities decay in real life. A broken windmill embodies to the dreamer that he is not fully utilizing his resources. His subconscious is prompting him to change through this dream. If the windmill is in top condition and functions properly, it symbolizes that the dreamer in question is well aware of how to pick out the goodies in all situations of everyday life.

Spiritual dream interpretation

For further development the spirit needs certain energies and powers. A windmill symbolizes this power. This serves the dreamer as a drive to expand his spiritual consciousness and thereby gain deeper impressions about himself.
