Sometimes this dream can be literal and tell of a real pregnancy. But more generally if you dream of being pregnant it is to do with a creative idea or project that you are birthing. • Where you are in the pregnancy will give you clues as to your progress.

If you’re heavily pregnant the idea or project is nearing completion and if you’re giving birth you’re about to manifest or deliver this creative idea to the world.
Vision: Dreaming about being wide awake: your unconscious is reminding you of a problem that you need to recognize before you miss the chance to solve it. Seeing a watchman: hurdles will complicate a big project. People are throwing obstacles in your way, but you will recognize the danger in time. See Police, Soldier.

Crucial within the husband / wife relationship are the wife’s feelings about her own sexuality and intimacy of body, mind and spirit. Her view of herself will have been formed by her connection with her father and any subsequent partnering may well be coloured by that attachment.

Psychological / emotional perspective: If we consider that to live is to use energy effectively, any image in dreams that highlights this, constitutes a reminder. Live ammunition, for instance, suggests that care and control of danger is necessary.

Depth Psychology: The liver is often a sign of impending illness; sometimes it is a warning of physical, emotional, or mental “poison” you have either inflicted on yourself or others have inflicted on you.

To dream of a liver may represent an insecurity about your health. Alcohol may be causing you problems physically or socially. You may feel that you have missed opportunities or hurt friendships by drinking.
To see yours or someone else’s liver in your dream suggests the possibility of a physical disorder, possibly due to an addictive or compulsive behavior. Or, this dream could also mean that there is someone in your life who may not be looking out for your best interests.
If you dreamed of eating, cooking or serving liver, your health is going to improve.
Vision: Seeing an animal herd: be happy, your finances will improve. Selling animals at a livestock auction: you thought you were particularly smart, but others will outbid you by a mile! Negotiating with a livestock dealer: watch out—you are being “taken for ride”! See Cow, Stall.

General Meaning: Olives in many forms are mentioned in Scripture. They had many uses - from being used for oil to light lamps, to being pickled and eaten. • The most famous olive grove mentioned in the Word is Gethsemane, which translated means ‘oil press’. Before an olive tree died, new branches sprouted from its roots. • Visions Positive Olive Oil • Oil has always been a lovely picture of the anointing. It also speaks of the healing anointing, as olive oil was often used as a source of medication. • Olive Crushed • Apostle Les speaks in The Prophetic Training book about how the prophet goes through a time of testing during his training. He relates it to being ‘squeezed’. • His question is, “When you get squeezed, what comes out of you?” • The olive oil being squeezed and letting out its oil is a lovely image of this. It means that when pressures come on you to change, what comes out is the anointing. • It is also an indication that the Lord is about to put pressure on you, or perhaps even take you through a phase of ministry training. • Olive Tree • The Lord promised the Israelites their own olive trees as a blessing. It is a picture of abundance and the blessing of the Lord. • The olive tree is also a good picture of a reproducing asset. It is not a blessing that comes once, but one that keeps producing further blessing. • Psalms 128:3 Your wife [will be] as a fruitful vine by the sides of your house: your children like olive plants around about your table.
Branch Being Severed • Apostle Paul shares how those who refused to accept Christ were cut off from the olive tree, and a new branch was grafted in (speaking of the Church). • Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree. • Often in the spirit we have seen the Lord cut a branch off a tree and graft a new one in its place. This has referred to the Lord removing a person from our lives or ministry and putting in someone new. • In a situation where a marriage has ended and you see this, it is an indication that the old marriage partner is being removed and that the Lord will bring a new one, so that they can become one. • To see an olive tree bearing fruit other than olives is a picture of things not being what they seem. While the person pretends to be one thing, on the inside they are something completely different. • James 3:12 Can the fig tree, my brothers, bear olive berries? Or a vine, figs? So no fountain [can] yield both salt water and fresh.
To dream you see an olive tree with olives, denotes peace, delight, concord, liberty, dignity, and fruition of your desires. In dreams the olive tree signifies the wife principally, and liberty; and therefore it is good to dream that it is flourishing well, and bearing fair and ripe fruit in season.
To dream you beat olives down is good for all but servants.

An olive tree in a dream represents a blessed man who benefits his family, a chaste woman, or it could mean a son who may become a governor.
A yellow olive in a dream represents heavy concerns about one’s religious life. Ifone presses olives for oil in a dream, it means that he will earn blessings and benefits.
If one sees himself watering an olive tree with olive oil in a dream, it means that he sleeps with his mother.
The same interpretation applies if one sees himself watering a garden with vinegar.
If one buys an olive tree, or eats from one, or drinks from its oil in a dream, it means blessings, or that he will marry a noble and a chaste woman. Seeing the leaves of an olive tree in a dream means following the straight path, or fulfilling one’s spiritual obligations, guidance, light, reading the Qur’an, comforting someone’s heart, making money for a poor person, except if one eats the olive raw in the dream, then it means the opposite, or it implies poverty, indebtedness, or it could denote the place, or the direction it comes from.
The leaves of an olive tree represent righteous people or spiritual leaders.
The fruit of an olive tree represents easy money, or living a rich and a happy life. Selecting olives or pressing them for oil in a dream means toiling, or hardships. As for a sick person, olives in a dream mean regaining strength and recovering from his illness.

A spiritual threat is one that forces us to reassess our beliefs. Most often it will contain options of action that lead to a degree of inevitability either way. Once on that particular path we have no choice but to continue. In dreams the image of a divided path or road will often occur at this time, or of going up or down. You might also like to consult the entry for path as well as the information on archetypes, anxiety dreams and nightmares in the introduction.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To feel threatened in dreams approaches anxiety and nightmare. Taking us out of our comfort zone whether emotionally or otherwise results in fear and distress, which we can suppress in waking life but often not in dreams.
If we ourselves are threatening someone in dreams we perhaps need to seek out the source of our own negative emotions and what it is we feel so strongly about.
Material aspects: A threat to our security or way of life can translate itself in dreams to an image of a threatening situation or environment.
The shadow – that part of us which contains a great deal of negativity – can manifest in dreams literally as a dark shadow and at that point needs to be confronted either through working with the dream or by careful analysis.
Gives gender - specific: In both men’s and women’s dreams the opposite gender can pose a threat. Thus a man might feel threatened by the image of a vengeful goddess (an aspect of the anima) and a woman by an overbearing ogre (an aspect of the animus).
The relationship between husband and wife is often based on how the man perceives himself to be, and can be enhanced through his dreams. Dreaming of a partner sometimes signifies the part of our personality that we cannot quite make full use of without help.
A man will often attempt to prove himself a good husband through his dreams. He may experience in dreams the potential loss and death of his partner with the same intensity as he experienced the first ‘loss’ of his mother.
