Ash dream meanings




What is over me? What will I get rid of myself?

General Meanings:

Ash is in a dream often of remorse and grief. The dreamer is aware that he has behaved in a situation of over-anxious and stupid and that he can change it any more. This situation has been completed. After an event has gone over, or a person from the life of the dreamer, he dreamed of a burnt-out fire, perhaps, the only remains of the ashes. Ash can announce that expectations and hopes will not be fulfilled. You can also refined rise from the ashes, so that the symbol represents in part the personal growth in a crisis, you will succeed. If you collect ashes, may still be a large, unexpected financial gain.

Psychological Meanings:

The ash is in a dream symbolizes feelings extinct, exhausted forces, lost interest in a matter or person, indifference or resignation. Located in the ashes still glow, it means maturity, personality development, self-reflection or catharsis. In order to interpret the dream completely, it is important to know what is or has been burned. Ash may be on the psychological level of grief. When she appears in a dream, then it may be an indication for the dreamer to escape a long grieving process already pending in any longer. From his experience, only ash remains. Ash points to the conclusion of a matter: It has burned a little and gets a sense like a phoenix from the ashes. Sometimes you have also acted wrongly and then spread as a penitent “ashes on his head”, or it is sad for any reason and will – according to biblical model – “in sackcloth and ashes.”


Ashes symbolizes purification, repentance and death, the mortal human body and its mortality.

  1. I dreamt, someone forced me to drink gasoline, and then forced me to eat a match that was burning and then i burned from the inside out, and my ashes piled up and turned into crows.

  2. I had moved into a new house. As i was cleaning and getting rid of items that were not mine i came across a vase that was in a corner of the room. I wanted to get rid of it so as i was taking it outside i decided to open the vase. I see nothing but ash inside as i was looking i can almost make out a face of who it belong too. I dropped it and ran. I woke up thinking who that face can belong to but no one comes in mind.

  3. I had a recurring dream of a haunted home, bedroom was the origin of hauntings.

    (previous occupier of this specific bedroom was an unknown adult woman in the dream)

    In the dream it was a ‘new home’or residence, appearance & layout unlike any home we’ve had in reality.

    Tonight is the first time I was brave enough to enter this third and ‘only haunted’ bedroom.

    Seemed normal, warm tones, reds and peaches and terracotta. Tidy, double bed, dark wood, bedside tables either side.

    On the bedside table with the lamp on it, the one at left hand side of bed when facing it (besides wall with window); I found a dark coloured (black or dark blue) mug/tall cup, that was glazed in an oiled tint.

    Scarily, It was full of the woman’s cremated ashes, and had been left behind and forgotten.
    We never knew who this woman was, only that it was she who haunted the house in previous dreams.
    We decided to scatter her ashes on grass near the house. Dream ended.

  4. Hi There,

    I had a very strange dream about being back in my grandparents house, my Grandad was sitting facing the fireplace with his back to me when I approached him there was no fire in the fireplace just lots of ash and a live blue spikey iguana. My Grandad was scared of the Iguana but I plucked up the courage to try and go towards it when it dissappeared?

    My Grandad is ill and I hope that this is not a sign of bad things to come?

    It is disturbing me a little, any comments much apprecaited.
