Adversity means Difficulties or Aid – When you dream of adversity that you are facing one it means that you will fall through and your future will be difficult and unlucky. If you see others being in adversity it symbolizes someone reaching out for help. Maybe this person will have financial problems or maybe some kind of illness. Do not turn away from this person, as he will need your help.
Adversity dream meanings by Gustavus Hindman Miller from dream dictionary “10,000 Dreams Interpreted” or “What’s In A Dream” or “Dreams, Their Scientific and Practical Interpretations”
Adversity means Failures – Dreaming that you are in the clutches of adversity, denotes that you will have failures and continued bad prospects. To see others in adversity, portends gloomy surroundings, and the illness of some one will produce grave fears of the successful working of plans. The old dream books give this as a sign of coming prosperity. This definition is untrue. There are two forces at work in man, one from within and the other from without. They are from two distinct spheres the animal mind influenced by the personal world of carnal appetites, and the spiritual mind from the realm of universal Brotherhood, present antagonistic motives on the dream consciousness. If these two forces were in harmony, the spirit or mental picture from the dream mind would find a literal fulfillment in the life of the dreamer. The pleasurable sensations of the body cause the spirit anguish. The selfish enrichment of the body impoverishes the spirit influence upon the Soul. The trials of adversity often cause the spirit to rejoice and the flesh to weep. If the cry of the grieved spirit is left on the dream mind it may indicate to the dreamer worldly advancement, but it is hardly the theory of the occult forces, which have contributed to the contents of this book.
