Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with R
Raisins– Seeing raisins in my dream
Eating raisins in a dream is a bad sign. This dream implies that disappointment will enter your life. This will not be because of some cosmic event, but instead because of your own pessimistic attitude. Change your attitude, and you can change your life.
Raking in your dream suggests that you have work that you need to do in your waking life. This is likely work that only you can do. Do not delegate. Just do your work, or else it will never get done correctly.
If others are raking, then this suggests that good luck will enter someone else’s life, but that you will still be able to benefit from it.
If the rake is broken in either of the above situations, then this predicts illness or injury to come in your near future. This is likely to slow down your work.
Seeing a ram that is acting peacefully implies that you are surrounded by loyal friends who carry a lot of influence in your waking life. Now is a good time to ask these friends for a favor, but make sure that you do not ask them for anything crazy, or else you will regret it.
If a ram is trying to attack you, then this implies that danger is around you. This danger is likely in the form of a person who wants to ruin your reputation or use you to get themselves ahead. Do not trust smooth-talkers in the near future.
See Animal* for further dream symbolism.
Dreaming that you are rambling suggests that there is something you need to say in your waking life, but you may not know how to say it. This is a sign that you need to learn how to sort out your thoughts. Think before you act.
Dreaming that you are trying to go up a ramp suggests that you are facing challenges in your waking life. The harder that is is to get up the ramp, the harder your challenges are likely to feel. The steeper that the ramp is, the harder that you need to work in your waking life to complete your goals.
If you are going down a ramp in your dream, then this could instead suggest that things are going easy for you.
Dreaming that you are on a ranch suggests that you need to take a step back and try to realize what is actually important in your waking life. Try to simplify what you have so that you can focus on what really matters. You can do this by being less materialistic, focusing more on family, or getting out somewhere like a ranch to appreciate nature.
This dream may alternatively represent your financial state and your worries about it. If the ranch is full of healthy plants and animals, then your finances are likely in a good place. If the ranch is barren, then this implies that you have something to worry about financially.
Dreaming that you are being held for a ransom is a bad sign. Others are acting as your friends only to use you for your money or influence. It is best that you get rid of these friends before they can do any damage to you.
The amount of money that your ransom is could alternatively represent how you feel about yourself. If the ransom is very high, then this suggests that you feel like you are worth a lot–your self-esteem is high. If you are not being held for much, then this can imply that your self-confidence levels could use a boost.
Rapping or hearing rap music in your dream implies that you have something inside of you that you need to get out. You may not know how to get out the thoughts that you are thinking. If you enjoy music in your waking life, then you might want to try to take a creative approach to getting your message out.
Try to remember what the rap music was about in your dream. The lyrics may hold further dream symbolism for you. Does the song sound violent or mean-spirited? If it does, then this could suggest that you have negative emotions pent up inside of yourself. You need to learn how to get these emotions out in a healthy way, like music, before they turn into something negative.
See Music* for further dream symbolism.
Dreaming of rape, in general, can suggest that you are anxious about the possibility of getting raped. With sex crime rates being as high as they are, this is not something that is strange to be worried about. If you have been raped before, then this dream could be your mind re-living the event. If this is the case, then now might be a good time to seek therapy or help from a friend so that you can talk out your feelings. Talking about dreams can often stop their occurrence.
A rape dream can also be seen as a general kind of warning that danger is around you. This could be something dangerous like a rapist, or someone who is trying to hurt you or steal from you. It is best that you try to protect yourself more than usual in the weeks following this dream.
Dreaming that you are being raped is a bad sign. This dream can suggest that you are feeling violated in some way in your waking life. This does not necessarily need to be a sexual kind of violation. If you do not feel this way, then this could instead be a prediction that you will be violated in some way in the future.
Knowing that someone else got raped in your dream suggests that you feel bad for your friends because of something bad that has happened to them. If you do not feel this way in your waking life, then this can be seen as a sign that something bad will happen to your friend. This is not a sign that they will get raped.
Going over the rapids is a sign of bad luck. This dream can predict that suffering is in your near future. Make sure that you watch out, as neglect is likely what will cause your next misfortune.
Knowing that the rapture is supposed to happen, or seeing it going on in your dream, suggests that you are anxious or worried about something that is going on in your waking life or that you are worried will happen later in your waking life. This could also be a sign that some big change is about to happen in your waking life. If a big change has recently happened, then this could be the cause of the dream.
If you are raptured, then this suggests that your spiritual nature is strong. Keep in touch with your spiritual side. It is sure to help out during the changes in your life.
If you are not raptured, then this could suggest that you need to become more spiritual. This is often a sign of low self-esteem. Having a more powerful spirituality could help to raise your levels of self-worth.
Seeing something that is rare, or if something in your dream has become rare, then this implies that you are taking too much for granted in your waking life. Take time to appreciate the small things in life before they are gone forever. This dream meaning is simple: appreciate what you have while you still have it.
Having a rash in your dream can represent things that annoy you or make you upset in your waking life. Seeing the rash on your skin is a way of your mind showing you that you are holding these emotions inside of yourself. You will not be able to emotionally heal until you release these emotions in some way. It is always best to release your emotions in a healthy way, too. This can be difficult if you hold in your emotions for too long, so get out your feelings as soon as possible instead of bottling them up.
This dream could be a pun on the word “rash” suggesting that you are thinking or acting too quickly on some problem that is going on in your waking life. Make sure that you think through your whole problem before you act. You don’t want to do something that you will end up regretting.
Also, see Skin* for further dream symbolism, as well as the areas of the body where the rash was.
Seeing raspberries, but not eating them, suggests that there is danger around you in your waking life. However, since you did not eat the berries in your dream, you still have time to avoid trouble before you get into it. Be careful.
If you eat the berries, then this suggests that you will be put under a great amount of stress because of trouble you have gotten into. This trouble will likely lead to gossip that will hurt your self-esteem levels.
See Berries* for further dream symbolism.
Seeing a rat in your dream suggests that there are people around you who you should not trust. These people are liars and may even wish to do you physical or emotional harm. These people are likely jealous of your accomplishments, and will try to make you look worse so that they can look better by comparison.
Rats can also be a sign of bad luck in your social life.
If you trap a rat, then this predicts that you will become annoyed with a friend. You will outshine them in some part of your personality or in a task. If you kill the rat in the trap, then this predicts good luck in competition.
Hearing a rat, but not seeing it, can suggest that you are wasting your time worrying about things that have not happened yet. These worries likely lie in your social life. This is a sign that you need to stop focusing on what could go wrong, and start focusing on the good things that are going on.
Needing to ration something in your dream could imply that you feel like things are not going fairly in your waking life. You may feel like others are getting more than you, even when you deserve just as much as they get. Now could be a good time to voice your concerns about the unfairness in your waking life.
This dream could also represent your current financial state or your fears about how badly your financial situation could get. You may feel like you need to start rationing items in your waking life so that you can stay afloat.
Looking up what you were rationing can also provide you with further dream symbolism.
Seeing a baby’s rattle in your dream can imply that you are happy in your home life. This can predict good luck in business as well.
If there is a baby who is playing with the rattle, then this suggests that now is a bad time to make an investment. This may also suggest that the investments that you do have are not going to go well.
Less symbolically, seeing a rattle in your dream could represent your feelings about wanting to have a baby.
See Baby* for further dream symbolism.
Rattlesnakes represent time. The faster that the snake is rattling, the faster your life likely feels like it is going by. The slower that the rattle is going, the slower that you may feel like your life is flowing. If the rattlesnake is not using a rattle at all, then this could suggest that you feel like your life is at a standstill for whatever reason.
See Snake* for further dream symbolism.
Seeing a raven in your dream is a sign that your current luck will be reversed in the near future. If you are having good luck it will become bad, and if you have bad luck you will become lucky. Much of this luck will have to do with your social or love life.
See Bird* for further dream symbolism.
Seeing a ravine in your dream implies that you feel unsafe in your waking life. You are looking for something or someone who can protect you from whatever is scaring you in your waking life. You may feel like you are physically or emotionally vulnerable.
This dream could alternatively suggest that you are trying to keep a secret or something similar hidden in your waking life. Make sure that you do not end up hiding away just for the sake of your secret, though.
Eating raw food in your dream suggests that you are feeling as though you do not have enough experience with something in your waking life. You may be afraid to try new things. This dream could be telling you that now is a good time to get more experience in a certain field so that you don’t need to feel this way in the future. Take baby steps to become more experienced.
This dream could alternatively be a reflection of some “raw” emotions that you are facing in your waking life. This could be your mind trying to tell you to learn how to process your emotions before you act on them. It’s best that you have a full plan instead of a half-baked one. This is a message from your mind basically telling you to think before you act so that you don’t end up doing something that you could end up regretting in the future.
Looking up the raw food that you ate in your dream can also provide you with further dream symbolism.
Seeing a razor in your dream suggests that you are likely to argue with someone in your waking life. If the razor is rusted or dirty, this can suggest that you will become stressed out in your waking life in the near future. This stress is unavoidable.
If you cut yourself with your razor (on accident), then this can suggest that bad luck is in your near future. This is a bad time to try to make deals with someone, as you are likely to get the worse end of it.
If you try to fight with a straightedge razor, then this can predict disappointment in your business life. This disappointment is likely to be caused by an annoying or harassing coworker.
