If you had a dream of honey images, you probably would think that your dream is one of those positive nighttime visions that are all too forgettable.
You probably would focus more on something more traumatic or attention grabbing, like being chased by zombies or possibly bedbugs crawling all over your skin.
But if you dream of honey, your subconscious is actually trying to tell you important lessons about your attitude towards work, building a better future for yourself and your family, and the idea of building the right foundation.
It pays to figure out the meaning of your dream of honey images.
General meaning of dreams about honey
Generally speaking, if you dream about honey, your subconscious is bringing to mind the result of all your hard work.
When you see honey flowing in your dream or being served, it indicates that you have a clear understanding of what you are working for.
A lot of people don’t have this clear understanding.
Most people don’t begin with the end in mind.
Instead, they float from job to job, relationship to relationship, friend group to friend group.
Their main focus is whether it feels good, or whether they get the sense of belonging and not much else.
This really is still bad.
Because if you are a little bit more focused, and how you spend your time and who you hang out with, you would have a lot more to show for the life you have lived so far.
When you dream of honey it indicates that your subconscious understands that this success (whatever form it takes) can only result from hard work.
This hard work doesn’t involve that stereotypical image of you cracking rocks under a hot sun.
That happens rarely.
Instead, the hardest work involves changing your attitude.
It involves letting go of your old ways of thinking and adopting a mindset that actually paves the way for better results.
This is why most people who desire success never make it.
It’s not they’re stupid.
It’s not because they don’t have access to resources.
Most of them do.
It’s not that they don’t have all the time to make it happen.
Instead, they had the wrong mindset coming in.
You see, great success in life is not some sort of destination.
It’s not some sort of checklist item that you eventually tick off after you do certain things in sequence.
Instead, great success happens when you let the journey change you.
When you look at people like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and other industry titans looking past the physical they are different people.
It’s not because they were blessed by nature to somehow become superior.
They became different because they embarked on a journey or an adventure that allowed them to change.
It changed their behavior, it changed their priorities, it changed their level of adaptiveness.
When you dream about honey, you’re not just focusing on the end result.
Your subconscious is letting you know that this substance is the result of so many things lining up in the right order and taking place at the right time.
That takes hard work.
The actual effort involved in achieving success may vary from project to project.
But the same process is involved.
What your subconscious is telling you is that hard work always wins and the hard work begins inside you.
What does it mean to dream about spilled honey?
If you accidentally spill honey in your dreams, your subconscious is using this metaphor to speak to you about your tendency to worry over spilled milk.
You focus on all this effort that you have invested in something and for whatever reason it didn’t pan out.
So you feel sorry for yourself.
You beside yourself in resentment, anger.
The truth is you’re majoring in minors.
Stop focusing on bringing back the past.
It’s over, get over it.
Instead, learn from it, and learn to come back better.
Unfortunately, there’s a part of you that can’t let go.
And this is the whole point of the spilled honey.
All that success can be recreated in the future if you allow yourself to start again.
But you’re so hung up and all the time, effort and emotional focus and energy that you’ve invested in the past that you let your failure define you.
This is what leads to “bad luck”.
Whether it’s looking for a job, starting a new relationship, taking better care of yourself or your loved ones.
Whatever project you’re working on, this is the source of that bad energy.
Learn from it.
Stop investing good energy after bad because it’s not going to come back.
What does it mean to dream of strained honey?
If you see an image in your dream of honey being strained through some sort of filter, this can indicate that you have a certain level of resentment against your friends.
You’re thinking that deep down inside you can only trust yourself because these people who call themselves your friends aren’t all that supportive.
You feel that they are toxic.
You might want to reconsider.
Because if you define real friends, as people who constantly say yes to you and pat you on the back, you might be surrounding yourself with people that may pave the way for your doom and destruction.
I’m not being melodramatic here.
When people say yes to you, it’s easy to fall into the temptation that what you’re doing is absolutely spot on and there’s no room for improvement.
This can lead to setbacks and potential disasters later on.
It’s so much better to surround yourself with people who can honestly criticize you.
They do this not because they want to hurt you.
They do this because they owe you the truth.
Learn to spot the difference.
A real friend has the courage to say no.
A real friend loves you enough to take the risk of possibly hurting you with the truth.
This is the filter that strains the honey because the honey is still going to come but you would get a higher quality of honey if it is strained the right way.
And there is no better filter than the truth.
What does it mean to dream of buying or selling honey?
If you see this dream image you’re beginning to wake up to the understanding that if you develop stubborn or perfectionist principles, you end up painting yourself in a corner.
Buying or selling indicates flexibility.
You buy when the price is low, you sell when the price is high.
What you keep is your profit.
This requires learning how to read people.
It also means the ability to read the “temperature”.
That’s how you get ahead.
And if you will have defined success simply as putting in the work day in day out, chances are you’re going to be cheating yourself out of a greater level of success.
Sure, hard work wins.
We could all agree on that.
But if all you can muster is just brute force effort, it can only take you so far.
A little bit of flexibility, a little bit of learning how to read people and work through their connections as well as your own, achieve so much more when it comes to letting you access more of what the world has to offer.
In other words, don’t be so wedded to your personal definitions of the proper way to achieve success in your career and your business as well as in your relationships.
Learn to spot opportunities.
Let your curiosity guide you.
What does it mean to dream of getting money directly from a hive?
This is a very interesting dream.
Because when you see a hive, and you flush it with some smoke, instead of squeezing the honeycomb to produce honey, money oozes out
Maybe this is the form of dollar bills, or euros or possibly even gold coins.
Your subconscious is using this fantastic imagery to let you know that fertility is in the cards for you.
Maybe you’re going to welcome a new baby, either yourself directly or somebody who is close to you.
Fertility can also speak to a very fertile period in terms of creativity.
You might be on the cusp of a great creative breakthrough.
I’m not just talking about people who express their creativity in the form of paint on a canvas or sculpting on a wide variety of materials.
I’m also talking about people who express their creativity through business plans, solving problems, and providing services.
Because at the end of the day, creativity is all about cars coming up with something new to deal with a challenge or to present old ideas in a new way.
You’re going to enter a new period of peak creative inspiration.
The key here is to let it happen by giving yourself permission.
A lot of people don’t bother to do this because they think that if they’re being really creative and thinking outside the box, they’re so afraid other people might call them weird.
Don’t be afraid to go against the grain.
In fact, if people have been doing the same way for so long, you’re doing them the favor by offering a different alternative that may or may not make sense in your present circumstances.
But at the very least you give them something different.
What they do with it depends on them.
Let your creative voice come out.
Some people are creative with money, other people are creative with coordinating with people, others are creative in terms of picking up girls or guys.
Let your creativity come out.
This is the period of creative fertility that is coming your way.
What does it mean to dream of licking honey off your lover?
If you dream of their significant other, laying in front of you either naked or partially clothed and you are dripping honey on parts of their body and licking it off, this indicates that your level of intimacy has reached a point where you can fully trust each other.
You know what makes for great sex?
It’s not physical intensity per se, nor is it the right music or the right mood.
Those are important ingredients.
But the most important part to great sex that really reaches deep down inside and makes you feel intimate with that person you’re sharing your body with is trust.
This elaborate image of licking honey off your lover’s body indicates a higher level of trust and this opens the gateway to better intimacy and better experiences both physical and spiritual.
Because at the end of the day, if your relationship is missing a spiritual or emotional component, and it’s just all physical sex centered around orgasms and dopamine release, your relationship isn’t going anywhere.
I’m not saying that one of you is going to walk out.
You can stay in that relationship but it is stunted possibly for life because the only way of expressing yourself and herself in that bond is through physical physicality.
That’s like buying a beautiful new car and using it as a paperweight.
What a waste.
Sure, you need to hold down your papers.
It’s important, but you could use so many other things to do that.
You can use a book.
The same analysis goes with your relationship.
Just looking at your relationship with just as a steady source of sex is really doing it and yourself a disservice because it’s capable of so much more.
What does it mean to dream of slathering honey on bread?
This indicates that you are feeling fully supported by your family.
You feel that regardless of how much money you make, regardless of the ups and downs of your career, your business or whatnot, that your family has got your back.
This is one of the most reassuring dreams to have, regardless of who you are in the family.
Whether you’re the provider or you’re a kid growing up in the family or you’re the partner.
Seeing the honey go over that bread indicates a sense of ease, confidence, and trust.
You don’t feel like you’re being put under the spotlight.
But the sense of comfort you feel emboldens you to work even harder to make the lives of your loved ones even more comfortable.
What does it mean to dream of eating honey?
There are many different ways to eat honey.
I remember when I was in college, a friend of mine used to steal honey packets from the dorm commissary.
And he would bring it up to my buddy’s dorm room and I would stop by so we could smoke some weed and drink the honey.
This guy would basically slather it all over himself and make a big performance art thing making monkey sounds.
Everybody of course was made for great college memories.
But Christopher or as we call them back then crazy Chris will just come up with his elaborate production courtesy of free aka stolen honey packets from the dorm commissary.
When you see yourself eating honey in the normal way, this indicates that your routine has settled down and you feel that your role is as it should be.
And there is a certain regularity to the rhythm of your life.
On the other hand, if you’re like my college friend Chris, and you make a production out of eating honey but not necessarily going to the crazy lengths he went to.
This can indicate that you are trying as hard as you can to bring some spice and variety to your life.
The fact that you’re trying so hard indicates that you feel that it has become routine.
It’s missing that spark of excitement that used to make you feel truly alive.
The truth is that there can be a happy marriage between passion and day to day living.
Focus on what motivates you.
My son motivates me and I find the will to do what I need to do.
Is everything that I do on a day to day basis exciting personally?
Do I find it all fulfilling?
Does it all connect me with a higher sense of meaning and purpose?
Of course not.
But when you focus on what motivates you, you find enough meaning in what you’re doing that enables you to keep pushing forward and before you know it, you achieve a sense of momentum.
That’s how it’s done.
It’s not easy, and it’s not all comfortable.
But the daily grind is part of our daily existence.
The question is, how do we add the spice of meaning to it enough that we can stick to it day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.
What does it mean to dream of eating honey from a bowl?
If you are eating honey from a bowl and it’s uncomfortable, and you’re basically dribbling the sweet stuff all over your chin, this indicates that you feel that you owe some people some sort of obligation and you can’t speak up.
Maybe you’re afraid of hurting important people’s feelings in your personal life.
Whatever the case may be, you feel closed in, suppressed ,and emotionally pressured.
This is a tough space to be in.
And whatever success, whatever happiness you may encounter, will always have to be filtered through that uncomfortable and stultifying personal arrangement.
So instead of eating honey regularly, you eat it from a bowl and are more likely to overeat, spill some or make some other mistake.
