Dream meaning of wall

As far as I’m concerned, this dream means you’re “stuck”.

A wall can be an obstacle that prevents you from achieving what you want.

This is a dream about something in your life that is holding you back or blocking you from something you also want.

When you dream of a wall, it may be a famous wall, such as the Berlin Wall or the Great Wall of China.

Or, more simply, it can be a simple blockade in front of you or a huge stone wall around your house.

Walls can appear in many different forms in a dream, and their meaning, location and what they are made of is what has the most influence on your dream.

Walls signify difficulties and obstacles in your life and indicate that there are things blocking your path.

Sometimes the wall may represent a person, but usually it is indicative of certain circumstances. Normally, these types of dreams show you problems that you have already considered, but that solidify the problem at hand.

When you see a wall in your dream, know that there will be obstacles blocking your way.

If you try to go around it, climb over it, or tear it down and can’t, you are failing to overcome your problems.

Instead, as soon as you manage to get over to the other side, the problem is solved.

Detailed meaning of the dream

When you choose to put up a wall, this can be a sign that you are pushing others out of your life.

When you are the one blocking others from helping you or opening up to you, then you need to consider that the people trying to help you will not continue to do so.

If you feel trapped behind self-created walls, this is a sign that you are pushing others too far, to the point of being unhelpful or harmful to yourself.

When a dreamer creates boundaries against obstacles – such as erecting a wall in opposition to an unknown danger, this can be a warning that there is a need for protection and security in your waking world.

Tearing down a wall is a good sign of being able to be open and trusting and making progress without refusing the help that is probably needed.

Walls are typically masculine elements in dream interpretation. These dreams indicate that there is a male influence in your life or in your past life. Consider your relationship with an ex-partner (if you are a woman) or your relationship with your father. Also consider your own processing of emotions.

Because the wall is often considered a masculine quality when representing something in a dream, it can also mirror masculine feelings of being emotionally inadequate or holding back your own feelings.

When the wall surrounds something you consider special or treasured, consider your own feelings about this thing in your life.

Walls, as dream images, are generally considered obstacles and sources of isolation or seclusion.

Some people are emotionally guarded and feel unable to express themselves freely.

If you are such a person, this dream symbol could indicate the walls you have built around yourself.

In addition, if you face seemingly impenetrable challenges and difficulties in your daily life, the wall in your dream may be a reflection of these factors.

Consider your current situation and try to identify the source of the walls in your dream.

Climbing the wall suggests that you are becoming prepared or capable of overcoming difficulties and/or challenges.

    These represent obstacles; therefore the meaning of the dream depends on the outcome of its action. If you dreamed of jumping over one, you will achieve success through your own determination, and if your dream featured walking along the top of a wall, your future is bright indeed.

    Walls are boundaries that turn what would otherwise be an open space into something specific and functional. By compartmentalizing thoughts and ideas in our minds, we are able to manage our thoughts and feelings more effectively, and walls are symbolic of the structure that allows us to function in this way. The walls in your dreams represent this ability; the condition of these walls is to be interpreted as either helping this process or an indication that this process is being challenged.

  5. Dream Dictionary » Eve Adamson & Gayle Williamson April 20, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    If you dream of a wall, something is standing in your way. You can’t go any farther in this direction, and you can’t even see what’s out there. It’s time to use your creativity to go another way.
