Dream meaning of flower

Flowers have a connection to joy, feelings and spiritual strength. Dreams with flowers can tell us a lot about ourselves, although the meanings are not always positive.

To discover the meaning of our dreams we must continue reading about the meanings of each dream. It may happen that we continually dream of flowers, bouquets of flowers, flowers growing in a field, dead flowers or flower petals. Each of their interpretations varies.

The subconscious has probably found a relationship between us and flowers, perhaps in some aspect of our life we have a comparative relationship to flowers.

A very important detail of the dreams with flowers is to pay attention to the petals of the flowers since they are of great importance for their interpretation. Because the petals symbolize sensuality, in this case it refers to us.

We must be careful if the petals are dry. This means that we are victims of our own personality and we probably push away the people we love the most. We may even fall into criticizing others. Each dream will have its own meaning in relation to how and in what way we dream of flowers.

As far as we can understand flowers tend to be related to love, good energies and spirituality but not everything we dream of flowers must be of good energies, as we can see each dream has its interpretation and to define which dream is the one we have had we must pay enough attention to identify the small details that differentiate one dream from another.

Since these can be very similar we must read well each of the meanings of the dreams to understand the dream we have had and why we have dreamed about it.

You are focusing on the stage of your personal growth process (bud to full flower), your beauty, attractiveness, sexuality, sensuality, and natural self-expression.

The flower’s color gives clues to the emotion: yellow/joy, white/sadness and purity, red/romantic love, pink/affection, lavender/spiritual connection. Receiving a bouquet means you are loved, appreciated, and admired.
Spiritual Spiritual
You are tuning in to your soul and heart, and how perfect, beautiful, and unique you are.


Different flowers usually have separate meanings, but, as so often happens, flower-symbolism is broadly characterized by two essentially different considerations: the flower in its essence, and the flower in its shape. By its very nature it is symbolic of transitoriness, of Spring and of beauty.

The Greeks and Romans, at all their feasts, always wore crowns of flowers. And they would strew flowers over the corpses as they bore them to the funeral pyre and over their graves (not so much as an offering as an analogy). We have, then, another example of an antithetical symbol, like the skeleton which the Egyptians would bring to their banquets, as a reminder of the reality of death and as a stimulus towards the enjoyment of life. Now, because of its shape, the flower is an image of the ‘Centre’, and hence an archetypal image of the soul.

The significance would be adapted according to the colour of the flower. So, for example, orange or yellowcoloured flowers represent a reinforcement of the basic sun-symbolism; red flowers emphasize the relationship with animal life, blood and passion. The ‘blue flower’ is a legendary symbol of the impossible, and is probably an allusion to the ‘mystic Centre’ as represented by the Grail and other such symbols. The ‘golden flower’ is a famous parallel in Chinese mysticism, a non-existent flower which is also spoken of in alchemy.

Flowers are natural symbols of beauty, delicacy, harmlessness, and attraction (e.g., the attraction of bees to nectar). Flowers are also symbols of the deep self. In both southern Asian yoga systems and the Western esoteric tradition, flowers represent the psychic centers referred to as chakras (“wheels”). 

The expression “spiritual unfoldment” is a flowerrelated image. Finally, the dreaming mind often literalizes common verbal expressions—such as “wallflower” and “flower power”—in an effort to convey something to the conscious mind.

Each flower has its own meaning but you can say that, in general, they symbolize joy, fleeting beauty, love, and happiness. Therefore, contemplating flowers in dreams may portend the beginning of a new relationship.

If you pick one, this relationship is likely to be reciprocated; however, if during the dream you just smell them you will probably be the one who ends up quitting such a relationship.

If you can tell the color of the flower that appears in the dream the interpretation will vary according to the meaning of each color.

Buddha’s teachings say that every person goes through the same phases a flower does. You may be in the dirt of desire or you may rise up and gradually open up to the light.

Fresh, brightly colored flowers featured in your dream, whether growing out of doors or arranged indoors, are an auspicious omen of great personal happiness. If the flowers were dead or wilted or if you threw them away, the dream is warning you that overconfidence and/or carelessness also goes before a fall. Artificial flowers predict a situation where you will be under pressure to act against your principles; don’t allow yourself to be influenced. Wild flowers signify a happy, exciting adventure.

A flower is a symbol for expressions of love and beauty for its own sake. Flowers also represent fertility and the possibility of new growth in the future. There is a language to flowers that we have lost in modern society but that was once a vibrant way of communicating specific loving messages. For example, a red rose signifies romantic love, whereas a yellow one indicates platonic love.

No matter what distinctions you draw about the specific flower(s) that appear in your dream, consider that once flowers are picked, they begin the process of wilting and decay, representing the ephemeral nature of feelings of love and its expression.

Flowers represent beauty, romantic love, passion, and sexual attraction.

To dream of budding flowers symbolizes new beginnings, youth, and young love.
Flower buds can also symbolize male or female genitalia. To see them in your dream represents just where your mind is regarding someone who attracts you, or simply your appreciation for the beauty of those body parts.
Seeing a flower opening in your dream means you are becoming more and more passionate about someone or something and opening yourself to a deeper and more intimate relationship.
Dreaming of giving flowers to someone symbolizes your love for or attraction to that person, or someone or something that person represents.
If someone gives flowers to you in your dream, you suspect someone has a crush on you.
To see dead flowers in your dream represents depression, feeling your age, or the end of a passionate relationship.
Dead flowers can also represent impotence and frigidity. You just don’t feel passionate lately, and you don’t see this as a good thing. You see it as a sign of something else that is going wrong in your life.
