Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with D
To dream that you are diving can suggest that you are facing anxiety in your waking life. You may feel like you are entering into the unknown, which can make anyone feel uncomfortable. This dream suggests that you need to learn to understand yourself more before you can understand why you get so anxious in these kinds of situations.
The state of the water that you are diving into in your dream can affect the meaning of this term. If the water is murky, then this only exaggerates the meaning of the above definition more. However, if the water is crystal clear, then this dream can instead mean that you are starting to get over an anxiety. You are well on your way to becoming a mentally confident person.
To see that other people are diving with you can suggest that others will help you through this troubling time. Therefore, if you are worried about asking for help, don’t be. Your friends and family are here for you.
To dream of a dividend can be a good or bad sign, depending on what happens with them in your dream. To dream that you get the dividend you were looking for is a good sign. This can predict that you will be lucky in business and love. To dream that you do not get the dividends you were trying to get can predict the opposite.
To dream of divining rods is a poor sign. This predicts that you will be disappointed by your surrounding in the near future. This could be a sign that now is a good time for a change of scenery.
To dream of getting a divorce is a bad term, but that does not mean that it is a prediction. This dream can suggest that you are not happy with your current relationship, whether you are actually married to your partner or not. It is time to confront the issues in your relationship so that you can get back on good terms with your partner.
This dream could also suggest that you are generally not very good at communicating with your partner. This is usually the case when you are not currently having problems in your relationship. If you do not learn how to properly communicate, then you will have problems in the future.
To dream that you are dizzy in a dream is a representation of how you feel in your waking life. Dizziness is often associated with confusion, which is exactly the meaning of this dream term. You are confused or frustrated about something in your waking life. The best way to combat this is to stop spinning and stand still.
DNA is carefully structured and makes up every living thing on earth. Because of these facts, seeing DNA in your dream can carry a duel meaning.
DNA in the life sense can represent feelings about your own life or feelings about wanting to make a new life, having a baby. You may be thinking about what parts of yourself that you like and would like to pass down to another human some day. On the other hand, you may be feeling lost. Your DNA makes up who you are, but it doesn’t help you to understand yourself, only you can do this.
In the structured sense, seeing DNA in your dream can imply that you need to start living your life in a more structured way. You need to organize yourself and the things around you if you want to advance in business or your social life.
To be on a dock can be seen as a warning sign. This dream is trying to tell you that there is danger around you. This could be in the form of people who wish to do you harm or because of your own clumsy nature. Be careful in the near future to avoid accidents.
To dream that you see a doctor while in a normal social setting is a good sign. This can suggest that your relationships are healthy, or that you will get healthier relationships in the near future. This is also a prediction that you will fare well in your finances.
To dream of going to see the doctor for health reasons can be a sign that you will become ill in near future. It is best to watch out for your health as well as your budget, for neither is bound to fare well.
To be cut into by a doctor, or to have anything else done that produces blood, is a bad sign. This predicts an injury that you will face in the near future. This injury is likely to put you out of a lot of money, so make sure to start saving.
To dream that you are watching a documentary, or if you dream seems to be a part of a documentary, then this can suggest that you feel like you are making a difference in the world. In your waking life you may not think that what you do is important enough for an actual documentary, but in your subconscious, you are on the path to fame. It is okay to be proud of yourself, but just make sure not to let your ego get the better of you.
This dream can also be a pun on the word “document.” If you think that this is the case, then this dream could be telling you that there is something important that you need to keep your eye out for and remember or document.
Looking up what the documentary is about can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
To dream that you are playing dodgeball can suggest that you have a highly competitive nature and that it may very well be getting the better of you in the recent past. What you are doing in the game can also impact what this term means.
If you are throwing the ball in the dream, then this can suggest that you are holding in anger or some other negative emotion. It is good to get out these sorts of emotions, but when it comes to the real world, try to express them in a healthy way, and not by throwing a ball at someone.
If you are dodging the ball in your dream, then this can suggest that your self-confidence is low. You are trying to avoid getting hurt more than you already have been. This dream could also suggest that you are “dodging” your responsibilities or social obligations.
Dodo birds are extinct, largely because they were hunted and were generally not very smart animals. To see this bird can suggest that you are close to extinction because of your careless or clumsy behavior. This is not a sign that you will die, but that some part of your personality or a hobby will die. In some circumstances, if you have bad habits that you need to get rid of, this can be a good sign.
See Bird* for further dream symbolism.
To see a dog in a dream is generally a good sign. This dream can suggest that you have loyal friends in your waking life. There are people around you who love for you and who are willing to take care of you if need be. This animal is usually a hopeful dream sign, but the situation that the dog is in during your dream can change the meaning.
To have the dog as a pet is a good sign. This can also suggest that you are surrounding by good friends. This dream is also a prediction that you will come into some money or love in your near future.
To dream that a dog is being cruel or violent is a bad sign. This dream term can suggest that the people around you are not actually your friends. It is best to rid yourself of these people so that you can protect your reputation and your emotional state. Find out who your real friends are soon before it’s too late.
To dream that dogs are barking or growling is a bad sign. This dream term can suggest that you will be annoyed by someone or emotionally hurt by someone’s words. Your social interactions in the near future are not likely to be enjoyable.
To dream of a three-headed dog, see Cerberus*.
To dream that a dog is trying, or succeeding in eating you, see Devour*.
For more dog dream symbolism in general, see Animal*.
Looking up the color and size of the dog can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
To dream of a dog house is usually not a good sign. This dream can suggest that you are being thrown “in the doghouse,” you are in trouble for something that you have done in the recent past. It is time to receive your punishment unless you are willing to beg like a dog to get out of it.
Dolls can be a representation of how we feel about ourselves in our waking life. How we dress, play with, and generally see the dolls can be a reflection of how we act or how we feel about ourselves.
Seeing a doll in your dream can suggest that you do not feel like you are in control of your own life. You may feel like someone else is playing with you, or like you can not make your own decisions. You wish that you could become more independent, but you may not know how to make this happen.
The doll in our dreams can also be a reflection of our childhood selves, especially if the dreamer had an abusive childhood. If this is the case, then the doll can be seen as an outlet to violence, or as a symbol for feeling helpless.
To play with a dollhouse can suggest that you have a perfect picture in your mind about what a family should be like. Maybe you grew up in a great family, or you just want to make sure that your future family is cared for in the best way possible. This dream can imply feelings about having a family or wanting to start one.
However, since the doll house represents an idealized family life, it can also suggest that you are ignoring the parts of your life that are not so ideal. This dream can suggest that you are ignoring problems and choosing to only remember good things about your family. While this may sound nice, ignoring problems will only make them easier to repeat.
Dreaming of a dolphin is not always a good sign. Dolphins are highly intelligent animals, but they are still animals nonetheless. This dream can suggest that you are under the control of someone who is not as smart as you are. This is likely to make frustration infiltrate your daily life.
Since a dolphin lives in the water but breathes air, it can represent two of the four elements. Living in water can represent the emotional or the unconscious. This dream could be suggesting that you need to take a look at your emotions, but act on them logically (to fit in with the element of air).
See Animal* for further dream symbolism.
To be in the dome of a building is a good sign. To see the city from below can suggest that you feel like you are high above others, but you are not acting egotistical because of it. This can show that you are rising to success in business and in your social circle.
To dream that you can see a dome in the distance can suggest that your ambitions are too high. It is time to lower your expectations for yourself, at least for now. Now is a good time to focus on small and practical things instead of aiming for goals that you are not likely to reach in the near future. This does not mean that your goals will be out of reach forever.
See Building* for further dream symbolism.
To dream of any sort of domesticated animal, like a pet or a farm animal, can suggest that you like to have your life organized and under control. You may be restricting some of your primal urges to seem cool and collected on the outside.
Looking up the term for whatever animal that was in your dream and the general term, Animal*, can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
To dream of being a dominatrix can suggest that you like to be in control of a situation. This could be in sexual terms or just involving your daily life. Like the real dominatrixes, some people like to have someone tell them what to do, but other people will be annoyed by someone with a bossy personality. Know when to act in charge and when it will not work to your advantage.
In a similar short of symbolism, this dream can represent new sexual things that you want to try. You may be afraid that this sort of thing will deviate from the norm, but you’d be surprised to find out just how many people are into it. Don’t be afraid of being as sexual as you would like to be.
To play with dominos in a dream and win can suggest that you are in a healthy place in your social life right now. Make sure to stay modest about yourself or else you are likely to ruin this and come into disfavor with your loved ones, especially your family.
To play dominos and lose is a bad sign. This can suggest that your are not likely to be productive in your social life anytime soon. This is not a good time to try to reconnect with old friends or make new ones. Stick to the friends that you have for now. This is also a bad time to try to get into a new romantic relationship.
The numbers on the dominoes, if they catch your attention in the dream, can also provide you with further dream symbolism.
See Game* for further dream symbolism.
To dream that you are giving out a monetary donation can represent your caring nature. You are the kind of person who often puts others before themselves. This is a good trait to have, but make sure that you always make time for yourself so that you don’t lose yourself among the crowds.
To dream that you are donating blood can suggest that you have been stressed out because of all of the work that you have been doing with others lately. It’s time to give this a break before you entirely drain yourself. Make time for yourself, pronto.
See Ass (Donkey)* for dream symbolism.
