Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with R
Repair – Dreaming that you are repairing something
Dreaming that you are repairing something in your dream suggests that you are recovering from emotional damage that you have recently faced in your waking life. In a way, this dream is kind of like having your mind try to repair itself.
Dreaming that you are repenting for your sins is usually a sign that you are feeling guilty about something that you have done. You need to be able to ask for forgiveness in your waking life. Try to remember your mistakes from the past so that you do not make them again.
If someone else is repenting, then this implies that you need to be more forgiving in your waking life. Forgive small flaws that others have. This will do a great deal when it comes to making and keeping friends.
Writing a report can suggest that you need to learn how to think before you act. Try to have a carefully written plan before you do something that you might regret.
If you are reading a report, then this can suggest that you are worried about something that is going on in your waking life. This most likely has to do with your work or school life.
Seeing a reptile in your dream suggests that there are many conflicting issues in your waking life that you are struggling to deal with.
If you are holding the reptile without getting hurt by it, then this can suggest that you are surrounded by people who act as your friends, but may not actually care about you as a friend. If you do not like their attitude, then do not feel like you have to keep being friends with them. If the reptile does hurt you as you are holding it, then this can suggest that others are actively working against you. It is a good idea to avoid people who are just using you to help themselves get ahead.
If a reptile is trying to attack you, then this predicts bad luck in the near future. If you are able to kill it before it kills you, then this predicts that you will be able to overcome whatever the bad luck brings your way.
Looking up the specific reptile can also provide you with further dream symbolism. Also, looking up Animal* can do the same.
Dreaming that you are being rescued from any kind of danger suggests that real life threats are around you in your waking life. However, it also implies that there are people around you who are willing to help you with whatever you need when you are in actual trouble.
If you are rescuing someone else, then this implies that you feel good about an achievement you have made. You may wish that others would praise you as much as you have praised yourself.
Dreaming that you are resigning from any job suggests that now is a good time to start on a new work project or hobby in your waking life. You may be forced into trying something new. This may seem bad at the moment, but know that you can make the most out of it if you try.
Seeing someone else resign predicts bad luck in your social life in the near future.
Going to a resort in your waking life suggests that you need to take some time for yourself so that you can relax in your waking life. If possible, try to delegate some of your responsibilities to others so that you can make more time for yourself and the things that you love.
Dreaming that you are in a restaurant can suggest that you are feeling stressed out in some area of your life. You likely need help to sort out this problem. Do not be afraid to ask your friends or family members for support in your time of need.
Feeling or actually being restricted in your dream suggests that you feel this way in your waking life. You may feel like you cannot express yourself the way that you want to. Don’t let others get you down. Be whoever you want to be.
Seeing or writing a resume can imply that you have been thinking about your own skills and level of self-worth recently.

Dreaming that you have been raised from the dead suggests that something in your waking life is annoying you. If you work hard enough, you can overcome this annoyance and even be better off for it.

Being resuscitated in your dream predicts that you will face loss in your dream future. However, your luck will take a turn afterwards because you will end up gaining more than you lost in the first place.
If you are resuscitating someone, then this suggests that your social life will struggle, but it will later come back stronger than ever after a short time.
Wearing a retainer in your dream suggests that you feel like there is a part of yourself that you cannot express for whatever reason.

Dreaming that you are retiring can represent your feelings about becoming older, even if you are relatively young when you have this dream. If you are happy in this dream, then this can suggest that you are not worried about becoming old, but if you are uncomfortable in your dream, then this can suggest the opposite.
This dream could also represent a transitional period in your life that you are going through, even if this change actually has nothing to do with retirement.
Going on a retreat in your dream can suggest that you need to take some time to rest and unwind in your waking life. Even if you do not have the time or money to go on an actual retreat, you can still do things that will make your life more relaxing. Try to drop some responsibilities if you can.
Dreaming that you are retreating from some situation can suggest that you need to get away from something that is going on in your waking life. You are likely not strong enough to deal with this thing anymore. Try to take a break from your responsibilities if you can.
This dream can alternatively suggest that you are trying to run away from something in your own head; you are in denial about something. It’s time to face facts. You can’t run from yourself.
Going to a reunion of any kind can imply that you have feelings from the past that are being brought up again in your waking life. This dream is trying to tell you that you need to confront these feelings. This could involve acting on these feelings, or try to forget about them so that you can move on with your life. You can use other clues from your dream to figure out which meaning applies better to you.
Seeing people who you know at the reunion can suggest that over time you have gained some of their traits or they have picked up on your personality traits. This is your mind showing you how you have impacted other people’s lives and how they have impacted yours.
Dreaming that you have a positive revelation can suggest that good luck, most likely in love or wealth, will come your way in the near future.
If the revelation is negative, then this instead predicts disappointment to come in your near future.
Revenge, in general, is usually a sign of bad luck in your social life. You will need to change your attitude if you want to recover your friendships.

Seeing a reverend in your dream suggests that you need to find some sort of guidance in your waking life. This does not necessarily need to have anything to do with your spirituality. Talk to people who have been there for you in the past. They are the people who are most likely to help you.
This dream could alternatively mean that now is a good time for you to help out others. Look for people who need help and do what you can to provide guidance to them.
Going to a religious revival suggests that something strange is going on in your waking life. Trouble is likely to interfere with your family life in the near future. If you take part in activities dealing with the revival, then this can predict bad luck in both your family life and you social life in general.
See Religion* for further dream symbolism.
Seeing a revolt in your dream suggests that you are being influenced by bad people. Make sure to watch out for yourself in times like this. Do not feel like you need to do whatever everyone else is doing just because they are telling you to do it. Stay true to yourself, even if it is hard at times.
Seeing a revolver in your dream suggests that you will have bad luck in your social life. Your temper is likely to get the better of you, leading you to argue with friends or other loved ones. If you do not act more civilly in the future, then you will likely lose this relationship.

Seeing a revolution in your dream suggests that there are many changes going on in your personal life and in the world around you. The way that you act in this dream can show how you feel about all of the changes that are going on around you. If you are brave in this dream, then this can show that you are trying to remain unphased by what is going on around you. If you are worried in your dream, then this can represent the anxieties that you are having about your current situation.
Less symbolically, this dream can just visualize how you feel about an actual revolution that is going on in the world.
A dream’s meaning in which something is being rewound entirely depends on the mood of the dreamer when the dream was occurring. If you felt positive during this dream, then this can suggest that you can thank people who have helped you in the past. These people are good to remember, as you can always return the favor later.
However, if you have negative emotions while you are dreaming, then this can instead suggest that you need to let go of some bad feelings that you are holding onto from the past. If this is the case, then this could be a sign that it’s time to forgive and forget. You don’t need negative feelings from the past ruining your happy memories in the present.
Having rheumatism in your dream (it does not matter if you have it or not in real life) can predict that your plans will become stalled in your waking life. This does not mean that your plans will be ruined completely, just that you will have another challenge to face before you can complete them.
If someone else has rheumatisms in your dream, then this can predict that disappointment will come to you in your near future. Unlike the above, this disappointment may have nothing to do with your goals.
Seeing rhinestones in your dream predict that happiness will come into your future, but they will only stay for a short time before life returns to normal.
If the rhinestone in your dream is discovered to be more valuable than you thought it would be, then this suggests that you discover something new about something old in your waking life. The news that you discover is more likely to make you happy than upset.
Seeing a rhinoceros in your dream can suggest that you feel threatened by something that is going on in your waking life. This threat is likely caused by a secret that someone knows about you, or by something else similar to blackmail.
If you kill the rhinoceros, then this suggests that you will be able to overcome whatever obstacle comes at you, even threats by others. Even if you aren’t brave, so long as you act like you are, you will be able to get out of trouble with ease.
See Animal* for further dream symbolism.
Seeing rhubarb growing predict that happy things and events will enter your life in the near future. They will likely stay in your life for some time before things return to normal.
If you are eating rhubarb, then this suggests that you are unhappy with the way that your life is going right now. You crave bigger and better things. Now could be a good time to take action so that you can change your life for the better.
Cooking rhubarb predicts bad luck in your relationships with friends. If you do not learn how to control your temper or other negative aspects of your personality, then you are sure to lose a friend in the near future.
Making or hearing rhymes can imply that you are trying to find balance in your waking life. Just like rhymes have patterns, you need to find a pattern to your life.
Try to remember what the rhymes in your dream were. If they make sense, looking up these terms can help to provide you with further dream symbolism. If the rhymes don’t make sense, then this can instead suggest that sometimes there is no “rhyme or reason” to what you do or what you dream of, suggesting that this dream doesn’t mean anything of symbolic importance.
A rhythm in your dream can be a representation of the pace of your life. If it is going to slow for your liking, then this could be a sign that you need to speed up a little in your waking life. If it is going too fast, then this can instead imply that you need to learn how to slow down in your waking life.
