Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with E
An effigy is often used as a stand-in for something or someone else. Because of this, the effigy is a simple representation of whatever it is supposed to be standing in for in your dream. This is the most basic symbolism for the dream, and the right one if the mood of the dream is not bad.
To have this dream, along with having a bad mood in the dream can be a bad sign. This could suggest that you feel like some part of your life is not “real” enough. This term can imply that you may feel like someone is lying to you, or that you are lying to yourself. Trying to be your own person, acting like your true self, can help this.
An egg can be a symbolic sign of fertility, life, and untapped potential. This dream could imply that you are having thoughts of having a child. If this is incorrect, then an alternative view of this dream term is that there is potential locked inside of you, waiting to be let you. Unleash your creativity and express yourself any way you know how.
This dream may also suggest that you are not yet aware of the potential that lies within you. You may not know what you hold. Like the saying, “Don’t count your chicks until they hatch,” don’t count yourself out as being a poor human until you find what inspires passion in you.
To have many unbroken or cooked eggs is a good sign. This may be a prediction that wealth and happiness are about to enter your life.
To dream of eating eggs suggest that some unknown enemy is waiting for you. It is best to be on your guard so that you can defend yourself. This attack could be either physical or mental.
To see rotten eggs is a bad sign. This dream could imply that you have made a poor business or social decision. Your choice is likely to come back to bite you.
If the eggs are in a nest, see Bird or Nest* for further dream symbolism.
Eggplants have some interesting symbolism, to say the least. This strange purple food can represent happiness, abundance, loyalty, and passion.
The eggplant can also represent a penis because of its phallic shape, and sexual desires in general.
To see eggshells in your dream is not a good sign. This dream can imply that you are feeling anxious or fragile at the moment. This could symbolize the feeling that you are “walking on eggshells.”
This dream could alternatively imply that you need to break out of your shell and express yourself in any way you know how. Acting as yourself is sure to make your life more enjoyable.
To dream of Egypt could suggest that you crave to see something simplistic, but elegant at the same time. The pyramids are thousands of years old, but they are marvels of engineering that were well ahead of their time. This dream could imply that you crave for a simpler lifestyle, but that you don’t want to get rid of the luxuries in your life.
See Numbers* for dream symbolism.
To see an eight ball in your dream can suggest that you have been up to some risky business lately, or that you are letting fate take the wheel instead of actively playing out your life to reach for your own desires. You may feel like you are in a rut in your waking life. Changing things up is sure to make you feel better.
See Eight under Numbers* for further dream symbolism.
Ejaculation (In your dream)
To dream that you have ejaculated, without actually ejaculating in real life can suggest that there is something inside of you that you need to release. This could imply that you need a sexual release, but this could also be concerning anger or creativity that is stuck inside of you.
This dream could also imply that you are losing control of your life. You need to focus more and play around less if you want to become in charge of your own life again.
Ejaculation (In your sleep)
To ejaculate while asleep, even if your dream is not inherently sexual can imply that something is lacking in your sex life, or that you have waited too long between sexual acts. You are likely unfulfilled in your sex life, and this could be a physical sign that you need to change that. Simply having more sex or masturbating can reduce the chance that you will ejaculate in your sleep whether you are a man or a woman.
Dreaming of elastic, or something with elastic in it, can suggest that you are a flexible person who can adjust to change easily.
If you have recently lost a romantic relationship, this may be a sign that now is a good time to try to rebound.
To focus especially on your elbow in a dream can be a sign that hard work is waiting for you in your near future because of the word play of “elbow grease” being the term commonly used to describe hard work.
See Arm* for further dream symbolism.
Seeing these berries is generally a good sign. This dream predicts that you will have peace in your household in the near future. If you live with your partner, then this can imply that your love life will be harmonious.
See Berries* for further dream symbolism.
To dream that you see an elderly person can represent ancient wisdom and power. If this person talks to you in your dream, try your best to recall what they have said, as it is likely to apply to your waking life. This dream could act as a sign to lead you in the right direction in your waking life.
To dream that you are at an election is a bad sign. This dream can imply that you will get into some trouble that will negatively affect your social status. In turn, this decrease in popularity may negatively affect your workplace. Try not to voice unpopular opinions if you are in a professional setting to avoid this trouble.
To dream of using an electric blanket can imply that you feel like you are capable of providing for yourself or others. This dream is likely caused by a lack of self-confidence. This dream can imply that you need to see yourself in a better light if you are to accomplish your goals. Confidence is key!
See Blanket* for further dream symbolism.
To see an electric chair in a dream is a bad sign. This can represent fear of quick changes, or even just change in general. This could imply that you feel guilty for something that you have done that has caused a negative change in your life or in the life of someone else.
To dream of an electric fence can imply that you have isolated yourself in your waking life. This could have been done purposely by yourself, or it could simply be a product of habit. Either way, this dream is trying to urge you to get out and socialize with others. If you do not do this, then you are likely to feel zapped every time you try to talk to someone new. It is best that you get used to daily social interactions instead of being shocked every time you go out. This is likely a dream caused by social anxiety.
Seeing or playing an electric guitar in a dream is a good sign. This dream suggests that you are full of confidence at the moment. You may feel powerful or extra sociable. This dream can imply that you have learned how to express yourself in a healthy way to show your social side, as well as your creative side.
The electric guitar can also be a sign of youthful energy and rebellion. You may be expressing yourself in a way that others don’t see as fit, but in a way that makes you feel good. This could also predict or imply that you have or will find a new passion that will make you feel younger.
Musical dreams often have a sexual part to them as well. If you are great at playing this instrument, then this could imply that your sex life is going well. If not…then, the opposite may apply. The only way to get better at either playing music or having sex is to practice.
See Instrument and Music* for further dream symbolism.
To dream of electricity, or something that uses it can imply that you will be shocked by something in the near future or that your life will face a sudden change. This change could be good or bad, depending on how you react to the initial stimulus. Even though the change will be sudden, make sure you think through your actions following it.
Dreaming of electricity could alternatively imply that your emotions have been feeling charged lately. You may be upset, on edge, angry, anxious, or generally stressed out. This dream can imply that you need to find a healthy way to express these emotions before you burn yourself out.
This dream can suggest that you have been full of energy lately. Make sure that you use it wisely, for it is not likely to last forever.
Looking up the thing that was using electricity can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
To dream that you have been electrocuted is a bad sign. This dream can imply that you don’t fully trust yourself to make important decisions quickly when you need to. This dream can also imply that you need to pay more attention to the world around you, so that when you do hear or see about something involving change, you will not be so shocked.
Dreaming of the four elements is a complicated dream term to decode. It used to be thought that the four elements made up everything on Earth, from the smallest grain of sand to the largest animals. Of course, now we know that this isn’t true, but the overall vibe of the elements stuck with humans since then. Each of the elements represents different traits: water, emotion; air, intelligence; fire, passion and anger; earth, stability, and strength. If one of these elements are missing in your dream, then this could imply that you need to work on gaining this trait. If the elements are in balance, then you are probably doing pretty well for yourself.
Looking up the elements individually can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
Seeing an elf in your dream can imply that something in your waking life is not in balance with another part of your life. This could imply that you have been playing too hard instead of being productive or vise versa. You need to do your work on time and relax later. Doing this will add stability, and likely harmony, to your life.
The elephant can symbolize both strength and intelligence. These huge animals are rumored to have a memory that lasts for at least fifty years, which is not a negligible trait. To see an elephant in your dream could imply that you share the traits of the elephant, or that you should work on gaining these traits. This varies from person to person.
To dream that you are feeding or riding on an elephant is a good sign. This can imply that you are about to raise your social status, which in turn, can raise your business status. Work on making yourself more intelligence and more power are likely to come your way.
See Animal* for further dream symbolism.
To dream of being in an elevator can have an opposite meaning depending on which direction you are going. If you are going to a higher floor in your dream, then this can predict that you will rise in social status or power quickly in your waking life. You are on the fast track to success. To dream that you are going down a floor can suggest the opposite. You will make a social blunder, which will reduce your social standing in the near future.
Looking up the floor number you are on and the one you are going to can also provide you with additional dream symbolism.
See Directions for a general term or Down or Up* for more specific dream symbolism.
Elixir of Life
The elixir of life is a mythical drink that will make the drinker immortal, or make them young again. Seeing or drinking this in your dream can predict that pleasures will come your way in the near future. It may not be as great as being young again, but it won’t be disappointing either.
The elk can symbolize social interaction and strength. To see this animal in a dream can imply that you need to talk to people of the same sex to express your emotions in a way that is more likely to be well-received by others. If you are not feeling socially deprived, then this dream could alternatively imply that your diet is unhealthy and that you should eat more vegetables like the elk.
See Animal* for further dream symbolism.
To dream of eloping is usually seen as a bad sign, especially if you are already married in your waking life. If you are married in your waking life, then this could suggest that you feel like you are not good enough for your partner, or vise versa. Your self-confidence may be low. If you are not married in your waking life, then the elopement term is still a bad sign, as is suggests that you feel hopeless when it comes to love. However, this is not a prediction that you are actually hopeless.
To dream that your partner is eloping with someone else is also a bad sign. This can suggest that you are insecure about your relationship. You may have fears that your partner is not faithful, or this could be a guilt-inspired dream if you are not faithful in your relationship.
If someone else is sloping, this can imply that one of your friends will soon get into a relationship that you will not approve of, and it is not likely that your requests will stop their affair.
