Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with C
To see cream in your dream suggests that you want the best things out of life. You crave to better your life in some way.
This dream term can also be a prediction that wealth will come your way.
Dreaming of the world being created or anything else being created from raw materials can represent your inner potential. You have the knowledge to make something new for yourself, even if it is not a physical object that you are trying to make. This can show that you have all the “materials” that you need to make the world a better place for yourself, or that you are able to make yourself a better person for the good of the rest of the world.
To dream of seeing some sort of living thing that you’re not exactly sure what is is counts as seeing a creature. This kind of dream can represent a fear of the unknown that may lie within you. If you are not afraid of strange new things, then this could be a fear of catching an old illness.
This dream may be a sign that you are becoming ill.
To dream that you are getting credit for something that you have done can show that you are learning to accept yourself or your responsibilities. You are confident in your abilities and you are ready to take on the next challenge that comes at you.
This dream could also be a sign that you feel underappreciated in your waking life. You may wish that people would give your credit in real life like they do in your dreams.
A credit card in a dream can symbolize your feelings about money in general. If you are doing relatively well financially, then this can be a good sign, showing that you will become even more prosperous. If you are not doing well financially, then this can represent your feelings of anxiety or stress.
To dream that you are getting a new credit card changes meaning depending on the mood of the dream. If you are in a good mood in the dream, then this can symbolize that you see money as an opportunity to advance yourself. If the mood in your dream is bad, then this can suggest that you see money as a temptation or trap.
To lose or destroy a credit card does not change meaning depending on the dream. To lose or break a card suggests feelings of financial unrest, anxiety, and stress.
To see a flowing creek can suggest that your life will change rapidly in a short amount of time. If the creek seems to be overflowing, then this can show that your life will change in a negative way, but only for a short while.
To see that the creek bed is dried predicts that you will face disappointments in your near future. This most likely has to do with obtaining assets. You will want to gain something, but you will not have the means to do so.
To see someone who is a creep, or something that is generally creepy can represent your fears and anxiety that bother you in your waking life. You may not feel safe or protected on your own, and this can be a way of your brain visualizing this.
To see that someone has been cremated in a dream is a sign of cleansing, a way of getting to a state of perfection. Some people see this as a representation of the perfect soul leaving an imperfect body. If someone close to you has recently died, then this could be a sign that they are at peace.
This can also be a sign that you are strong enough not to let bad influences get to you. You are able to hold your own and lead yourself on whatever path to success that works for you. You don’t need to be a copycat to find your way to success. This is a good symbol.

To eat a crepe in your dream suggests that you are trying to keep up your appearances so that others stay unaware of your true feelings. This may suggest that you are nervous about others finding out who you really are.
The crescent shape, even when not actually of the moon, is still representative of the moon.

Crime Scene Tape
Seeing this bright tape in your dream can suggest that you are feeling restricted in your waking life. Someone or something is preventing you from advancing or moving past a problem in your waking life.
Seeing a criminal in your dream is never a good sign. To talk to a criminal in your dream suggests that you are in danger of losing one of your friends or generally damaging your relationships with people in your social circle.
To see a criminal running away from someone suggests that you will have bad luck in business. You may feel like you have been robbed of an opportunity, or this could even be a prediction that your business will actually fall victim to a criminal in some way.

Looking up what body part was crippled in your dream can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
Dealing with a crisis of any kind in a dream is a reflection of an internal crisis that is going on in your waking life. The other things that make up your dream may be able to provide clues as to what your real life crisis is and how you can work towards fixing it.
To dream that you see something that is crocheted or to be crocheting something in a dream can suggest that you are getting tangled up in a mess that does not need to involve you. These dreams are more likely to occur in people who frequently gossip. This dream may be trying to tell you to mind your own business if you want to keep out of trouble.
See Crafting* for additional dream symbolism if it applies to your dream.
Dreaming of a crocodile is not a good sign. This creature suggests that you are going to fall into rough times in the near future.

See Animal* for further dream symbolism.

Cronos is the god of time. Seeing him in your dream can represent your feelings about the passing of time. Since time in dreams and time in real life do not work the same way, it is best to look for correlations in your dreams rather than looking for absolute matches in timing. What time is doing in the dream–speeding up, slowing down, skipping–may show how you are feeling about the passing of time–it’s going too fast, too slow, or it just doesn’t seem like it’s flowing nicely.
To see something crooked in your dream can suggest that there’s something a little “off” or just “not right” in your waking life. Something or someone may seem to be strange to you. It is best to investigate these details to find out whether you are just imagining things or if there really is something strange going on.
This could also be a pun on the word “crook.” This could suggest that someone is lying to you or trying to get the better of you to gain something other than your friendship.
To be surrounded by crops in your dream can suggest that you have been working hard in your waking life recently. This dream predicts that if you keep up on what you are doing, then you are sure to see progress or other rewards in your near future.
Cross (Religious Symbol)
Seeing a cross in a dream can relate to your feelings about your religion. If you are happy with your religion, then this can be a good sign. If this is the case, then this is a sign that you should devote more time to your religion and everything that it comes with. Missionary work may be in your future.
To dream of a cross and have negative feelings about it suggests that you will fall into some trouble. This does not necessarily imply that you will fall into spiritual trouble. This could suggest that it is time to repent for your bad deeds.
To see someone on a cross, see Crucifixion* for further dream symbolism.
A cross can represent the four basic directions–north, south, east, west or up, down, left, and right–which can relate to having different choices spread out in life.
If you saw the cross in another context, look up another definition for the term.
To see cross-bones in your dream suggests that you are feeling anxious about something. This dream suggests that you are probably jumping to a worst-case scenario without looking at all of the facts.
See Bones* for further dream symbolism.
Using a crossbow in your dream suggests that you need to focus more in your waking life. Recently, you have not been as precise in making decisions as you could have been. It is time to start thinking through your actions before you make them. If you do this, then you are sure to be able to accomplish your goals faster and more efficiently.
See Weapon* for further dream symbolism.
To crossdress in a dream, or see someone else who is cross-dressing, can suggest that you are repressing your masculine or feminine (opposite of your sex) traits. This dream is trying to tell you that it is okay to show those parts of yourself. You should feel comfortable to act as yourself wherever you are, even if that means not conforming to gender norms. If you express yourself in the way that you want, then you are sure to be happier for it.
This is neither a good or bad dream sign. To dream of having to cross a road, river or anything else in a dream can predict that you will go through a change in the near future. This change will likely require you to make a large decision.
Looking up what you are crossing can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
To see a crossing gate in your dream suggests that you are about to face some setbacks when it comes to completing your goals. Do not let these setbacks deter you from accomplishing your goals. They are only something minor, and they are sure to pass before long. Your patience and perseverance are sure to be tested in the near future.
Being at a crossroads in a dream can be a representation of a choice that you need to make in your waking life, and soon. This could represent a choice that has been bothering you for a while. You may not know what choice to make, which means that you may need help making it. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
This dream may also predict that opposite things will come together to make something new. This action may still require a decision to be made on your part. You are still able to ask for help if this is the case.
See Road* for further dream symbolism.
To dream that you are walking in a crosswalk suggests that you are careful about the decisions that you make. You are slow and steady, avoiding risks. This is not a sign, just an observation.
See Road* for further dream symbolism.
To dream that you are doing a crossword puzzle in your dream suggests that you are being challenged in some way in your waking life. This is more likely to be a mental, rather than physical, challenge. This could be a challenge of wits or words between you and another person.
