Dream meaning of letters

To see letters of the alphabet in your dream symbolize any object, animal, place associated with or resembling that particular letter. For example, the letter “T” may refer to a type intersection in a road.

Alternatively, you may still be trying to understand some concept or emotion that is still in the primitive stages.

To dream that you see a registered letter, foretells that some money matters will disrupt long-established relations.

For a woman to dream that she receives such a letter, intimates that she will be offered a competency, but it will not be on strictly legal, or moral grounds; others may play towards her a dishonorable part.

To the lover, this bears heavy presentments of disagreeable mating. His sweetheart will covet other gifts than his own.

If the news is of a joyous character, you will have many things to be thankful for.

If the letter is affectionate, but is written on green, or colored, paper, you will be slighted in love and business. Despondency will envelop you. Blue ink, denotes constancy and affection, also bright fortune. Red colors in a letter, imply estrangements through suspicion and jealousy, but this may be overcome by wise maneuvering of the suspected party.

To dream of trying to conceal a letter from your sweetheart or wife, intimates that you are interested in unworthy occupations.

To dream of a letter with a black border, signifies distress and the death of some relative.

To receive a letter written on black paper with white ink, denotes that gloom and disappointment will assail you, and friendly interposition will render small relief. If the letter passes between husband and wife, it means separation under sensational charges. If lovers, look for quarrels and threats of suicide.

To dream that you write a letter, denotes that you will be hasty in condemning some one on suspicion, and regrets will follow. A torn letter, indicates that hopeless mistakes may ruin your reputation. To receive a letter by hand, denotes that you are acting ungenerously towards your companions or sweetheart, and you also are not upright in your dealings.

To dream often of receiving a letter from a friend, foretells his arrival, or you will hear from him by letter or otherwise.

The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:

Physical Physical
Receiving a letter indicates you’re focusing on a new opportunity or challenge, or a quality represented by the writer of the letter. Sending a letter means you need to communicate and express yourself more.
Emotional Emotional
An unconscious aspect of yourself or a repressed emotion is trying to surface and make itself known.
Spiritual Spiritual
You’re receiving guidance from your inner self. An unopened letter or unread e-mail indicates you aren’t using your intuition, or are deliberately ignoring certain information. If you receive or send a postcard, look for meaning in the picture side.
Letters, in all cultures, have a symbolic significance, sometimes in a twofold sense corresponding to both their shape and their sound. Letter-symbolism probably derives from Primitive pictograms and ideographs— quite apart, that is, from the theory of cosmic ‘correspondences’ which prescribes that each component of a series must correspond to another given component of a parallel series.

Letters of the alphabet played a very important part among the Gnostics and in the mysteries of Mithraic cults; equivalents ascribed to them were taken from the symbolism of numbers, as well as from the signs of the Zodiac, the hours of the day, etc.

Similarly, each vowel was related to a colour. The seven letters also corresponded to the seven Directions of space (that is, the six extremities of the threedimensional cross plus the centre).
Among the Arabs, too, letters had a numerical value: the number of the letters in the alphabet was twenty-eight, like the days of the lunar month. Given the importance traditionally attached to the word—the Element of air—it is easy to understand why Man, in every system ever formulated, has always tried to prove the divine power of letters by making them dependent upon mystic and cosmic orders.

  1. Dreaming about receiving and reading a letter can indicate either our intuitions or our fantasies about what the sender thinks about us. We send letters in a dream when we want to tell someone something. A dream letter can also be an allusion to certain idioms, from doing something “to the letter” to receiving a rejection “Dear John letter.”

    In a dream concerning letters the meaning depends on the content. If you dreamed of receiving good news in a letter, your prospects are very bright indeed; but if the letter contained anything of a disappointing or upsetting nature, it portends an approaching struggle. Unimportant or routine letters signify financial difficulties due to overstretched credit.
    To dream of writing a love letter is a sign of regret over a foolish love affair. If your dream concerned destroying an unopened letter, it signals a need to make amends for a past injustice.
    To dream of reading a letter addressed to someone else portends a money loss, but a dream of mailing a letter predicts unexpected good news, and a chain letter indicates an unusual new experience in the offing. A bundle of love letters featured in your dream suggests that you would benefit from relieving your conscience of a guilty secret; filing letters or looking for letters in a file augurs an improvement in your circumstances. A letter delivered by messenger rather than by post indicates discord in small matters; letters written in brightly colored ink signify domestic problems; and to dream of hiding a letter or finding a hidden letter is a warning against an unfaithful friend or lover.

    This almost obsolete form of communication is a symbolic expression of ideas being transported from one area of your consciousness to another. Such a dream may be asking you to consider slower, more restrained ways of expressing yourself.

    Anything written in a dream—whether someone else writes it or you write it—has particular power as a message you are sending yourself about something you have noticed in your waking life and need to bring to your own attention. A letter in a dream may convey something very important, so read it carefully and try to remember upon waking what it said. Even if it doesn’t make sense, it symbolizes something you need to know.
    If you dream of a letter of the alphabet, that letter stands for something important: a person’s initials, something you must do, a place you must go. Your subconscious mind has called your attention to this code or message in a big way.
